1. What's on your current book wish list? If too many to list, describe what kind of things are on it.
I have a book wishlist a mile long, but some titles that pop into my head are Cinder, Supergods and Devil Said Bang.

2. If you could get just one of those as a gift right now, which would it be?
Well, Devil Said Bang isn't out yet, and while I do want to read Cinder, Sueprgods has been calling to me lately. I've been seeing and hearing about it all over, despite it coming out about a year ago now. So yeah, I'll go with Grant Morrison.

3. Are there any books in your collection that you want a different or secondary copy of?
I collect editions of Alice in Wonderland, but lately I haven't been finding as many. I really want the Ralph Steadman illustrated version (it's expensive!) and the Vintage version, because the cover makes me smile.

4. When is the last time you sold/donated/otherwise got rid of books you didn't want anymore?
Oh, within the last month or two. I don't keep as many books as I used to. Unless it's near and dear to my heart, or I think I might read it again, I usually donate it to local book exchange.

5. Do you have any books written in a language other than your native tongue?
Sadly, no. I might be able to muddle through a couple children's books in Spanish or French, though.

11 Facts
01. I'm very short. I haven't even broken five feet.
02. I've been with my fiancee for four years now. I kind of like him, I guess.
03. I hope to go to Library School one day, even though I don't really look forward to going back to school.
04. I'm still waiting for my Hogwarts letter, or for a talking animal to tell me I'm magical, or for something in the vein to happen and change my life forever.
05. This is my second livejournal, and this month marks my tenth year on LJ.
06. YA fiction drives me crazy. Every time I try to read it, I end up disappointed. I plan to take recs for the rest of the year and then dedicate next year to reading those YA novels in the hopes I find books I enjoy.
07. On that note, I like to read, but I always feel I'm never reading enough.
08. I alternate between reading fan fiction and reading manga when I have nothing better to do. Right now, it's fan fiction.
09. I am completely uninterested in writing original work most of the time.
10. I hate getting invested in bands, because they always break my heart.
11. I'm tired, so this isn't a fact so much as it is a statement.

01. What's your favourite thing to have for breakfast?
I'm not really a breakfast person. I usually have toast, or some fruit, but I don't really have a "favorite" thing.

02. What song would be the theme song to your life?
Oh, I don't know, not probably one that already exists. In Neil Gaiman's "Anansi Boys", there's a passage about how everyone has their own internal theme song, which might not be very good, but it's theirs. I imagine mine is kind of a hazy, jazzy song that sometimes gets really frantic when the musician feels like it. There aren't any official lyrics, but every once in a while, someone tries rapping over it, just to see what it sounds like.

03. What's a skill you'd really like to learn?
I wouldn't mind learning to draw again, but I'm not sure I'm ready for that kind of hurt.

04. If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
I'm actually pretty happy with where I live now. The area, anyway. I wouldn't mind a nicer apartment with less mosquitoes hanging around, but I like the Bay.

05. If someone gave you £100/$150 right now what would you do with it?
(Thank goodness Kate translated the money, because I probably wouldn't have thought to!) This is probably the boringest of answers, but I'd put it in savings.

06. What is your favourite youtube clip?

You're welcome.

07. Have you had any interesting dreams recently?
I don't particularly like to talk about my dreams, but I did post about one on my public blog recently. You can read about it here.

08. What's your favourite colour combination?
Brown, pink and white. I know, I like how I have an immediate answer for this, too.

09. What's your favourite episode of your favourite TV show?
That kind of precludes having a favorite TV show, so hmm. I guess I'll just pick a show I really like instead. So, Parks and Rec. My favorite episode is the one where they all get the flu, because nothing is funnier than Chris commanding himself to "Stop. Pooping."

10. What are you looking forward to?
Getting that bracelet I won! I'm excited to see it. :)

11. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Super strength, because I always love the tiny, but powerful characters. Molly from Runaways, Hotaru from Sailor Moon, etc. They're totally my type of hero.

I think I just do memes now. 8B

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your blog. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

Forgive me if I take a little while to get back to you on those prompts.

[personal profile] molt gave me these )
plasmoids: (you turn me into somebody loved)
My inbox has been really full lately, so if you're getting late comment replies, I apologize. I don't know what I've been doing, but my inbox just went from 40 messages to 10, so yeah. Here's a meme I managed to forget about!

Reply to this entry and I will give you five prompts. Think of a song that fits each prompt, post the five songs to your journal, and explain your choices. Give prompts to the people who reply to you.

My prompts from curiositykate: Nostalgia, winter, distance, royalty, needle.

I know that doesn't actually rhyme, but I like to say it sometimes. 8D

[ profile] curiositykate asked me some questions!

1. Who are your heroes?

Haha, I'm not much of a "hero" person, I think? I have people I admire and think are cool, but nothing so... Idk, idolize-y. I guess if I had to pick someone it would be Junko Mizuno. I wish I could be half as good an artist.

2. If you had a cat, what would you call it?
If it was a boy it would be Kafka, and if it was a girl, Kafuka. Other than that, though, I'm not sure, nor do I think I would name them both Kafka/Kafuka if I had a boy and girl. I think I'd probably only have one cat a time, and if I did have more than one, they would probably both be girls. No idea what I'd name the other one, though!

3. How did you and Erik meet?
(No, it's not to personal, haha.)

Believe it or not, we met on FictionPress. Yeah, the sister site of He wrote a story, I left a review, he contacted me and the rest is history. It's kind of dorky admitting this, actually, lol.

4. Who was your favourite My Little Pony when you were a kid?
I didn't like MLP when I was a kid! I wasn't really into "girly" things back then, and even if I was, I'm not sure MLP would have held my interest. I tried watching some of its earlier incarnations a little while ago and it was pretty dull. I don't know if as I child I would recognize that, but as a 23 year old, it bored me/kind of creeped me out. I was not expecting all the ponies to sound like children. It was just too weird for me.

5. What was the first Neil Gaiman book you ever read?
I think it was the first volume of Sandman. A friend let me borrow it in high school and I was immediately hooked. I went on to read more of his comics, then Coraline and finally his adult novels and short stories.

ALSO PLEASE GIVE ME THE LINKS TO YOUR OFF-LJ BLOGS. Yes, there's a reason I'm asking. No, I'm not telling you why yet.
plasmoids: (Default)
Say you were meeting a new person, blind date, new friend, who knows, and you wanted them to have some idea of what kind of person you are, and who you are. But you can't actually tell them in so many words.

Instead, you have to give them a box, with a baker's dozen things in it for them to look at/read/listen to/taste/whatever. What would you put in the box?

  • A copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

  • The cooler contents of my purse: My American McGee's Alice wallet, Hello Kitty LV imitation pouch, pink mini umbrella, Icing's nail kit and Forever21 mirror compact. (Counting this as five.)

  • Young Justice Volume 1 (the comic, not the show)

  • Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Prachett

  • Something by Junko Mizuno

  • Some of the early episodes of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

  • Pictures of my two best friends ([ profile] scistor_skizzer, why don't I have a picture of you that's not 5+ years old?)

  • One of the My Little Pony figures I recently acquired

  • A burned CD of my "life soundtrack" or whatever you would call this

In other news, I kind of want to show you guys Mt. Recycling, but it is currently too hazardous to photograph.

Oh! And I won a contest today! I am super excited to read this book, as I've been trying to get my hands on it for a while. I'm not usually into romance novels, but Faye L. Booth's books sound like - ahem - my cup of tea.
plasmoids: (insert creepy onomatopoeia here)
Reply to this post and I'll name 5 fandoms so you can respond with your favorite character/person from each!

From [ profile] suspicious:

1. Sayonara Zetsubou-Sensei OF COURSE, this one is a toss up between Nozomu and Kafuka, who are also my favorite couple. I like the both of them because (like the entire cast) you don't see characters like them in most anime/manga, and because they are just delightfully bizarre. They play off each other so well and turn reality on it's head. Point being, I like crazy shit, and they are awfully crazy.

2. Teen Titans When I still kept websites, I had a Raven shrine, so, obviously, Raven. I like sarcastic characters (as will become clear), and Raven had a mouth on her. I really liked all the characters on that show, and generally had no qualms with it in general, but Raven really stood out in the cast. Characters like her were getting really popular about the time Teen Titans came out, but I really though she was a very well done version of the character. And I love her comic book version too, though I do have problems with the de-aging thing, but that's a different rant for another day.

3. Daria Sarcastic Girl No. 2. I love sarcasm in anyone ($10 says if there's a sarcastic character in it, they're my favorite... probably), and Daria taught me that being sarcastic and speaking your mind was just fine. I was much younger when the show originally came out, so I kind of took pride in the fact that there was a well-known character out there that I looked and acted so much like in elementary/middle school.

4. Kuragehime Tsukimi! I love all of the sisterhood, but Tsukimi was the most amazing, adorable lady nerd I'd encountered in media in a while. You don't see "onna otaku" in entertainment much, and Kuragehime was like a godsend. I was just attracted to Tsukimi's adorable obsessiveness. She just couldn't be cuter.

5. Panty and Stocking As I watched the show, my favorite was definitely Stocking, who would have made sarcastic girl no. 3. But when we got to the TROLL ENDING, I wasn't so sure anymore. ): So if I had to decide now, I would say Brief. He was just adorable and hilarious throughout the series, and I actually look forward to him playing a bigger part in the second season, and I thought he was cute even before we got to see his face. X3

Sort me!
