That meme where you pick up the first book next to you, flip to page 45, and use the first sentence as a summary of your love life:

"After configuring the devices necessary for connecting to the Internet, tap 'Internet Settings' in the System Settings menu."

(courtesy of the 2DS manual)

... I find this eerily accurate.

As a side note, hearts and hugs to people who commented on my love meme thread. It's been a tough week or two offline, and it's helped so much to have something nice to read.

Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.

  1. Oooooooo, shiny! [Usually in the middle of a sentence.]

  2. Soooo..... sleeeppyyyy....

  3. I suck/I'm fat/I'm stupid/Nobody likes me, etc. [evil brain voices are the suck.]

  4. How are the rats so cute?!

  5. Am I hungry? I kind of want food. I don't think I'm hungry though. Food is far away. Ugh, so much trouble. Maybe I am a little hungry? Hrm. [The conclusion to this train of thought usually depends on how nearby food is.]

  6. Dude. What the heck, man, what the heck? [Hello. California has assimilated me.]

  7. Good job, self, good job. [Usually re: things like taking out the trash or washing dishes.]



Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.
Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.
Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.
Day Five: Six things you wish you’d never done.
Day Six: Five people who mean a lot (in no order whatsoever)
Day Seven: Four turn-offs.
Day Eight: Three turn-ons.
Day Nine: Two images that describe your life right now, and why.
Day Ten: One confession.

And of course, I have already missed a day! Ha.

Day Two: Nine things about yourself.

  1. I am really introverted and antisocial, though I've gotten much better at socializing over the years. Generally, I will avoid interpersonal contact if possible, I hate phones, I like people but will need to recharge if I hang out with a lot of them at once.

  2. I don't like raw fruit with a somewhat creamy texture and no hint of sour (i.e. bananas, jackfruit, durian, dragonfruit). I'm good with them if they're cooked though.

  3. I'm really sensitive to music in a very unaware way. Bouncy happy music lifts my mood, minor key music makes me sadder, and I cannot analyze it very well for the life of me. I also have terrible audio memory and rarely hear lyrics until I've listened to something a billion times.

  4. I can do things like algebra equations or more abstract solving, but I am crap at visual-spatial transformations. It took a while figuring out which way to turn on a map without turning the map so it's aligned to my current position.

  5. I used Curlz in all my graphics for my first fan site in high school.

  6. I like watching everything with subtitles on because I don't process audio that well. Also, I got used to it in Taiwan, where everything is subtitled because of the different dialects people speak and the variety shows almost always use text effects and captions for emphasis.

  7. I am still seeing if I identify as disabled or not due to depression. I used to think it would eventually just go away, but now, not so much.

  8. I memorized all of Bai Juyi's "Song of the Pipa" for Chinese class in eighth grade, but now I only remember the first four lines.

  9. I have a huge sweet tooth, but I don't actually like things that taste too much of sugar. Honey, though, I can eat out of the bottle.

Whoa, a meme! I don't think I have done one in forever. Also, this is good because I do not have the brain to finish the six-some book and TV write ups I started.

Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.

This always makes me incredibly paranoid, so I will limit it to ten people in my offline life.

  1. I am glad I am getting to know you better, and you have been great at teaching me things.

  2. I kind of wish you would talk more because I like you so far! But I also don't want to bug you too much since I also kind of get the entire not wanting to talk thing.

  3. I appreciate your attempts to phrase things nicely, but sometimes that actually makes things even more confusing.

  4. Yay for more little siblings!

  5. I feel like I should be hanging out with you more, but I can't quite seem to do it.

  6. ARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHH GO AWAY!

  7. I'm glad you're trying to change things, but I feel like you've stopped lately.

  8. I'm sorry I make things difficult for you. I don't mean to, but I also don't know how not to.

  9. I am really, really glad someone like you exists.

  10. Hey, we haven't seen each other for a while! I still want to get to know you more and hang out!


Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.

Meme!

I am bored, ergo I meme.

Some song lyrics I particularly like:

1. "Like a self-help manual that's been written in Braille, it seems the more that we touch, the more we learn about our failures"
2. "Another cog in the murder machine"
3. "And she closed herself off like a fan"
4. "I know you want to make the news, but lately all you do is memorize headlines"
5. "'It's crypto-fascist mania, it's silicon deliria.' 'Yeah,' she said, 'you're right, but I like the cafeteria.'"
6. "The truth is I bleed you when these frequencies cut me"
7. "Plastic sweat, metal skin, metallic tears, mannequin"
8. "Touch me with your naked hand, touch me with your glove"
9. "You love white veins, you love hard gray, the heaviest weight, the clumsiest shape"
10. "The answers are out there in the drowning deep"

Also, I always get annoyed when the song lyrics meme passes around, because half the music I listen to isn't in English. So here's stuff probably no one will guess, but what the heck:

11. "我醉過 真夏冰釀的梅酒"
12. "寂寞很吵 我很安靜 情緒很多 我很鎮定"
13. "始まりの朝の 静かな窓 ゼロになるからだ 充たされてゆけ"
14. "此時此刻有你陪 所有的痛痛飛"
15. "天青色等煙雨 而我在等妳 炊煙裊裊昇起 隔江千萬里"

Wow, it's been forever since I've done a meme. School is still killing me, so much so that procrastination methods have now gone from kdrama watching and reading fantasy to figure skating on TV, reality TV, and spider solitaire. Sadly enough, I think that's about all I have brain capacity for right now: entertainment in five minute intervals or less!

And so, instead of my super backlogged book write ups, a meme.

Via several people on my reading list:

1) Post a list of up to 20 books/movies/anime/TV shows/video games/bands [fannish etc.] that you've had an obsessive fannish love or interest in at some time in your life. [Mine is edited for things with large casts of characters.]
2) Have your f-list guess your favourite character/member from each item.
3) When someone guesses correctly, strikethrough the item and put the name of your favorite character next to it.

Hey, I was actually tagged for a meme!

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now, shaping your spring. Post these instructions in your LJ along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they're listening to.

  1. David Cook, "Hello" - American Idol emo rock version! Awesome.

  2. Len Cariou and Angela Lovett, "Epiphany" and "A Little Priest" - "We alllll deserve to DIE! Tell you why, Mrs. Lovett, tell you why..." Uh, I have a black sense of humor? Plus, cannibalism and throat-slitting! How could that be wrong?

  3. The Lucksmiths, "Sunlight in a Jar" - So happy and cute!

  4. Imani Coppola, "Legend of a Cowgirl"

  5. Ikimono Gakari, "Kira Kira Train"

  6. Rumblefish, "Smile Again"

  7. Amelia, "Happy After All"


Not tagging because I am lazy.

I have not been blogging much about this online, but I got sucked into American Idol at last. It is strangely addicting, and I am a sad, sad fangirl of David Cook. On the complete other side, I have continued my binge listening of three different versions of Sweeney Todd, including the movie one, because I like movie!Toby a lot.

I may also be a sad, sad fangirl of Johnny Depp's speaking voice.

In other news, I have been gleefully watching both [livejournal.com profile] yhlee and [livejournal.com profile] vom_marlowe dipping their toes into the still but deep waters of knitting (pardon my horrible metaphors).

And since Rachel asked, my five worst books ever!

In no particular order:

RL Stine - I can't remember which book this is, since there are so many with increasingly implausible and silly deaths. But the book had a character dying via a piece of dough placed in his/her mouth. The dough rose and miraculously acquired enough force to suffocate the person or to cause death via dough in the brain. I swear, I am not making this up.

Barbara Hambly, the Dragonsbane sequels - I think I may have blocked out how truly terrible these were from my mind. This is particularly sad, because I love Dragonsbane, but the sequels reverse a key decision in the original book (I think) and then begin to incorporate incoherent dimension- and/or time-travel. Other elements that I may or may not be remembering correctly: squalid details about homeless, addicted people in an alternate dystopic earth and how John either saves them or becomes one of them. Mely notes that there is also demonic mother-son incest, which I managed to scrub out of my memory.

Emma Donoghue, Slammerkin - So, there's the "rocks fall, everyone dies" ending, and then there's Slammerkin, in which rocks (metaphorically) fall, everyone dies; you sell your virginity for a red ribbon, get gang raped, then thrown out of the house; you abort your misbegotten gang rape child with a stick; and your best prostitute friend freezes to death on the street and you briefly think of burying her and instead pry a bottle of gin from her cold, dead fingers. The best thing? This is just the first hundred pages! It gets worse (spoilers)!

Robin Schone, Awaken, My Love - I cannot believe I actually finished this. Here's the original post. First, there is the gratuitous detailing of historical squalor. If two people are going to have sex later, I really do not want to know about how unclean they are when they pee, nor do I want details about bad breath, bad teeth, greasy hair, and dirty clothing. I do not mind these things, but when paired with descriptions of bulging tumescences and yonis and chakras and other nonsense blindly taken from the Kama Sutra, they are ridiculously funny. Also, the heroine's husband has apparently never heard of sex, masturbation, or orgasms, and he is supposedly a perfectly normal guy.

The hero's wife is frigid, so he rapes her into submission! We get entirely too detailed descriptions on dryness and tearing, zero remorse from the hero, and no sympathy from the author. Clearly, the hero's wife deserved it for being frigid, for having one leg be shorter than the other, and for being raped by her uncle when she was a child.

I still cannot believe I finished this. All I have to say is that it was before I started throwing books at walls.

And now, I can't think of a fifth, as they were either so bad that I never finished them, or mind-numbingly mediocre. Instead, I list: Piers Anthony, especially the Adept series and its gratuitous virtual sex (IIRC); Robert Jordan, with his notions of how women act; Anne McCaffrey's Freedom series; Anne Bishop's penis-shaped breadsticks; and the Beatrice Small book I started and never finished because it was just that bad in every possible aspect.

Bored, therefore:

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on yaoi, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc. Repost in your own journal if you are so inclined.


Er, given my horrible track record on these things, no promises, though I will definitely keep topics in mind!

2007 in review

oyceter: teruterubouzu default icon (Default)
I am just so glad that this year was an improvement over 2006. I have working meds again, I like my new job, and I have Plans for the future. It's amazing how much of a weight was lifted off my back with those three things, and it's been wonderful feeling like I can enjoy the little things now that the big things aren't always there, pressing down.

On a somewhat minor note, I am also glad to see that the Absolutely Horrible Travel Karma of 2006 has largely subsided into a Minorly Annoying Travel Karma of 2007. Maybe 2008 will bring me flights that take off on time! I remain optimistic, despite my knowledge of the travel industry.

[livejournal.com profile] telophase has created a Cool Bits story generator. She explains the concept and shares some of the best.

I decided that there should be a Cracktastic Bits generator as well, and [livejournal.com profile] rachelmanija is soliciting suggestions. (Although I honestly have no idea when I will code it, if ever. But it is too fun to read! And the best thing is, all of the examples have actually been published in some way, shape or form!)

And now, that three-interests-three-icons meme, from [livejournal.com profile] jonquil:

Describe me in one word.... just one single word. Leave it in my comments section. Then post this original message on your journal (or not!) and see how many strange and interesting things your friends say about you.


And now, a book meme! I think I've actually done this before, but it's about books, and obviously I am willing to babble about books for any length of time.

2006 in review

oyceter: teruterubouzu default icon (Default)
I've been doing this meme every year since 2003; it's fun and neat way to reflect back on my year.

2006 was a pretty rotten year for me. I read my entry for 2005, and I sound so happy and cheerful, full of life. This year wore me down and just kept wearing me down in nearly every manner possible. My much-adored boss left, there was work instability, my Big Project went wrong in nearly every way possible, Fitz-rat and Fool-rat died, my grandfather died, and assorted other little things just kept going wrong.

I'm so glad the year's over and really hoping that 2007 is better.
