So here's to the New Year. Did I spend it in a humble, contemplative mood - fine-tuning resolutions and the like? Did I bollocks.

I
- was woken up by Booker scratching my face
- fed the cats
- fell back asleep
- got up
- washed the dishes
- cleaned the oven
- sat, chatted and watched trailers with Dave and our neighbour Paul
- went to the shops to get food
- came home with carby, comfort food
- made and ate scrambled eggs and toast
- watched 1x02, 1x03, 1x04 and 1x05 of "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit"
- (napped briefly during on the episodes)
- watched "The Mask"
- dicked about online

Now I'm currently watching "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Black Pearl" with Dave and one snoozing cat.

Here's to the New Year
klena: (familiar faces and mixed up memories)
There are none of my fascinating Twitter thoughts today because I dragged myself to work, doubting strongly that I would make it the whole day (I was right) and felt so rough, I didn't even switch on my iPod. Appalling, I know.

Instead I came into work, sweated and shivered my way through half a day (and battling waves of mild, disgruntling nausea) before I asked to go home. My manager, Julie, had already been eyeballing me for two days, asking if I was going to go home.

So I did.

But before I did, I managed to book a few hours off work on the 20th August. Now, I was desperate to be off work all day, but my counterpart is already off and we're the team on Duty for our area, so that was a no-go. However, the end of the day was negotiable.

So I booked it off because I'm going to see Neil Gaiman.

Yes. Neil Gaiman.

At Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire. Event details are here

So I am flying out of work at 4, to catch a 4:45 train - changing at 6:06 for the local service to Ely, and will get there at 6:52.

Enough time to walk/skip/run the half mile to the Cathedral and try not to weep.

Because I wasn't sure about how I was going to get home or when the event would end (I've been reading of Neil signing for 4-5 hours recently), I booked a REALLY EARLY train the next morning. I was going to get the first train home at 5:30am but Dave eyeballed me and asked if I planned to sleep at the train station (I was going to, but his face discouraged me.)

So I've booked a room at a guest house that is 6 minutes walk away. If I manage my timing, I should be able to quickly check in before the event starts at 7:30. Here's hoping.

But fuck. FUCK. Getting to see and meet Neil Gaiman. It gives me butterflies. Or maybe that's the nausea kicking back in ;)

So have a nice picture instead

So I did the Bandom voice meme that's going around after hearing the joy that is [livejournal.com profile] philosiraptors

My voice is weird!!

Bandom voice meme by Klena
klena: (patron saint of switchblade fights)
So, as I mentioned in my LJ post back around the 10th of this month (fuck me, where did the month go??), I was just about to take part in a Zombie Running School in preparation for the "utilising a city as a platform" live action game, 2.8 Hours Later.

I emerged from the Running School exhausted, exhilarated and giddy at the thought of the game. We prepared by practising our lumbering, moaning, "Shaun of the Dead" zombie movies, playing acting games and playing 3 fast-paced games of "Capture the Flag."

Needless to say, those who have met me in real life, will attest to the fact that fitness and exercise are pretty low on my list of life. Somewhere down after "getting blood drawn" and "going to the dentist for injections." I just am lazy! I like being lazy! Speed is not my thing!

So I came out of the school enthused for the actual zombie event but completely underwhelmed with my physical fitness. I thought I was going to die at one point. I resolved to ~CHANGE THINGS~ and to ~DO CARDIO~ and ~EAT HEALTHILY~ in preparation for the hardcore running of the game. And in that interim 10 days did I do these things? Did I fuck. I sat on my arse and ate pizza, or sweets.

I was not exactly bursting with confidence when last Thursday rolled around, the night of the first game. I was going to be an embarassment to the zombie horde! I was going to run like a bitch out of hell!!!....and then proceed to need medical attention as my body revolted at the sudden exercise. It was going to be a mess, I was convinced! But so excited! So many intense feelings about zombies!

I can safely say, I did myself motherfucking proud.

Check out this video for an idea of the game! I appear briefly around the 5.47 mark. Listen to me scream :D



More on the actual game to follow! And photos!


.....I miss my bloody Silent Hill/Lisa icon. Might have to bring her back for zombie discussions. AND DARK!ART OCTOBER :DDDD
klena: (stocking and curls)
[livejournal.com profile] mystagic did a thing where you explain the stories behind 5 of your icons. So I volunteered and here I am, spilling my guts!

Also, I am waiting for the colour in my hair to develop, so killing time only works in my favour at the minute.

First one!

Keywordsmcgonagall only speaks truth, there is something wrong with you, you are demented.

This one is one of my newest icons, resparked by my love of [livejournal.com profile] shoebox_project. I was reminded of it a few months ago and went hunting it all down after the community was hacked and all the entries deleted. Sad times :(

It also makes me sad that the .pdf files available to download don't have the handwritten notes included in it. It loses a bit of the charm without them, honestly - is that just me? I am spoiled fan.

ANYWAYS. For those not in the know about Shoebox Project, it was a hilarious Marauders era multi-media fic establishing a lot about the Marauders. And Sirius/Remus as a pairing. It was fantastic and funny and full of tension as the War approached. Anyways, early in it, while it's set at Hogwarts, McGonagall is obviously long-suffering with James Potter and his band of miscreants.

The actual quote comes from a conversation between Sirius and McGonagall as they discuss career options. It pretty much sums up their relationship, and is hilarious. I chose it as it has that fondness and acceptance of the fact that most of the people I encounter on LJ are demented. And utterly brilliant for it. The keywords kinda explain themselves I think. Next!


Keywords:BAMFs, dream a little bigger darling, your mind is the scene of the crime

Arthur and Eames! Inception! My feelings are long and vaired and filled with ~INTENSE FEELINGS~ which I shall spare you all. Needless to say it was perhaps my favourite movie of last year, if not one of my favourites from the last decade or so I've properly been enjoying movies.

There is so much I love about this icon. It's from that fantastic scene where Eames just shows the audience (and Arthur) how much of a Bad Ass Mother Fucker he is, and calls him "darling". It seems like "dream a little bigger, darlng" has become perhaps THE phrase from the movie, especially for fangirls. Which is fantastic, considering the "darling" wasn't even in the script.

Arthur and Eames massively appeal to me as a fanfic reader, a writer and a fan of characters. Arthur presents this cool, collected facade who is charge and resolutely Deals With (Cobb's) Shit. He dresses in the most amazing sharp, business-like fashion but is a motherfucking expert with explosives. He never tends to be sentimental about people except for when he remarks that Mal was "lovely." He revises the plan when he misses the kick like it was an inconsequential thought. He has followed Cobb for years. Arthur is a lesson in badassery.

Eames is a hilarious pseudo-lush who dresses awfully but has a hidden quick wit and a knack for human psychology and interpersonal relationships. Once you consider that Eames' entire job in the dreamscape revolves around being other people, forging identities, his character becomes a lot more interesting and intriguing (not that he wasn't before.) For someone to solidly and convincingly forge an identity, he needs to be believable, and clever, and astute to each person's individual ticks and mannerisms. So the facade he presents in the movie is a carefully orchestrated one to take people off-guard as he filches your wallet (or your heart). And you didn't even notice, did you?

So, I have a lot of feelings about these characters! As I do about Mal and Ariadne and Cobb and Saito and Yusef. But basically, it is my badass icon. NEXT.


Keywords:gabe needs to work on his magic act, inherently ridiculous

This hilarious fool is Gabe Saporta, from Cobra Starship. They are a band who wants to make you dance. The idea for the band came after from Mr. Saporta there: "Citing a personal mythology involving being out in the desert high on peyote and having a conversation with a prophetic cobra."

Gabe is still one of those favourites from my very eager bandom days and this icon just makes me laugh a lot when I actually look at it. Look at him! What is he doing?! He's a guy that confuses me a lot. He sings creepy songs about being in his basement! But he's hilarious and does not take himself seriously. But he's also stupidly hot, especially in a suit.

I have no clue what this photo is from or what the context is, but it is hilarious. It looks like he is trying to make a toothbrush levitate. I don't even know. If I am using this, I am taking the piss (out of myself normally) or I am being silly. There really is not a lot of thoughts behind this icon. NEXT


Keywords: a virgin losing a child, before it all becomes the same old song, surely Heaven waits for you, used to be the right one.

Amanda Fucking Palmer! She used to be tied with Rose Tyler as the Woman Most In My Icons. True fact. Now Billie Piper (as Rose and as Belle du Jour) is the clear winner there. She is married to Neil Gaiman, don't you know? She has a lot of ~feelings~ about things, some of them not right! She is the lead singer of The Dresden Dolls and released an amazing album called "Who Killed Amanda Palmer" which I listened to a whole fucking lot during my final year and since. [brief break there to wash the dye out of my hair, I have no clue how the red has turned out, sigh]

ANYWAYS. Amanda Palmer. And all my lyrical keywords! "A virgin losing a child" comes from "Wolves At Night" by Manchestra Orchestra, "Before it all becomes the same old song" comes from "The (Shipped) Gold Standard" by Fall Out Boy, "Surely Heaven waits for you" is from "Carry On My Wayward Song" by Kansas and "Used to be the right one" is from "The Perfect Fit" by Amanda Palmer.

Basically, this icon is my contemplative/doubting/wistful icon. All the lyrics were chosen to vaguely correspond with what could be making her glance down and away. Except for "Surely Heaven waits for you", the rest of the icons are supposed to be sort of first-person whilst the Kansas lyrics is obviously second-person. The way her head is tilted and the position of her lips always seemed to be like Amanda was sighing or biting her lip, so I wanted to use th. EMOTIONAL ICONS! NEXT

FINALLY


Keywords: storm in the form of a girl, the motion makes me strong

My current profile pic! After the glasses/books one for something like two years, I finally changed it. This gorgeous specimen of womanhood is Lyndsey Ballato/Way or Lyn-Z being as fucking awesome as she is. She is one of my girl crushes that just won't quit. Her attitude! Her tattoos! Her bendy spine! Her pigtails! Her style! She's an artist and a bass player! Yeah, no, she's an awesome lady so I had to have her as one of my icons. I've got a few other icons of her, but I think this is probably my favourite one. Good thing too, it being my profile icon! Ha ha ha.

There's something just really...transient and powerful about this icon. She's obviously in motion, playing the bass but her gaze isn't focused on playing or the crowd, she seems to be gazing beyond that. Her pose is just really strong and unshakeable. Also, love the contrast of the orange stage and her black/white outfit. Plus the little glances of her tattoos. Ugh ♥ Lyn-Z.

The keywords, I'm actually surprised I don't have more of them! "Storm in the form of a girl" came from a keyword or an icon that I think [livejournal.com profile] musesfool had, maybe a Buffy one? Upon doing some searching, it is apparently from Hole's "Heaven Tonight" or Nick Cave's "Ain't Gonna Rain Anymore". Whatever, it's a great line. "The motion makes me strong" comes from Emmy The Great's song "Canopies And Grapes" (apparently not the real title, huh) which I have quoted many times in my icons. Generally in Rose Tyler ones. The verse it's taken from is:
Take some time out to resuscitate my soul,
Take up smoking and drink orange juice and grow.
Teach the mattress to expel you from it's folds
Dry my eyes and keep on walking,
'Til the motion makes me strong,
'Til one day I realise I don't remember that you're gone.


How can I not love that so much and want it used in many keywords? And the piece I used was to emphasise that moving on, movement keeps you going, keeps you strong. I need to remember that sometimes, I think.

So that is my icon masterclass! I hope you enjoy the rambles :) Bed? Bed.
klena: (used to be the right one)
Something to remember, I think.

"Be patient and tough, some day this pain will be useful to you." -Ovid



Also, I have to rec this amazing fucking story. It's a "Doctor Who" AU where Rose gets turned into a vampire. Suspend your opinions until you read this. As Rosa said herself, "a story where Rose Tyler gets turned into a vampire should be funny. This one isn't." Please, please go read Epitaph by [livejournal.com profile] rosa_acicularis. You won't regret it.
klena: (sunlight surrouds you)
The first big thing to say about this entry is:
1000 ENTRIES, FUCK YEAH

It's only taken me nearly 9 years to get here, and has been stupidly helped out by crossposting of my tweets. I never thought I'd get to a point of 1000 entries! But here I am. Have some celebratory dancing .gifs!





I feel that adequately celebrates 1000 entries! I've been planning on writing this entry for about 3 weeks, but just haven't got around to it, or wanted to have a lot of good content and then I got distracted by lots of Inception fics so. Well. But I did go back and look at my very first LJ entry, oh my Lord.

I was 15, and this December I will turn 25. I honestly cannot believe how much has changed in that time. But then again, it was the period where people go through the biggest personality overhauls so it's not much of a surprise. It still was a little embarrassing, and also sort of sad to see me discussing people who aren't in my life anymore. But that's the way it goes.

I was going to do this huge thoughtful entry, but it's not really in my head, so instead I'm going to post a few little bits from the internet that have made me happy the past few weeks.

First! Poetry! One of Audrey Hepburn's favourite poems.

Unending Love by Rabindranath Tagore

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times,
In life after life, in age after age forever.
My spell-bound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms

In life after life, in age after age forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, its age-old pain,
Its ancient tale of being apart or together,
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge
Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time:

You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount
At the heart of time love of one for another.
We have played alongside millions of lovers, shared in the same
Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell -
Old love, but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you,
The love of all man's days both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life,
The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours -
And the songs of everypoet both past and forever.

How beautiful is that?

Second! An excellent quote from Tim Minchin that I discovered, when trying to find a download of his song "White Wine in the Sun" , which is a gorgeous non-Christian Christmas song. Here's the song on Youtube if you fancy a listen! White Wine In The Sun.

Anyway, he was discussing the controversy behind the song and was asked "Your song "White Wine in the Sun", which includes lyrics critical of Christianity, caused controversy last week in Australia when it was used on an album of Christmas songs sold to raise money for the Salvation Army. What's your take on the fuss?

I think the Salvos are idiots. I didn't know they would benefit from the CD, but by the time I found out I didn't want to make too much of a fuss. So I gave my song free, then they turn around and say that they don't agree with the sentiment of the song. Obviously, they are talking about how I think Jesus is not magic. Part of me is hugely outraged by what imbeciles they are, to bite the hand that feeds them and put their proselytising above charity.

It's a terrible paradox that most charities are driven by religious belief. I believe very strongly in giving only to secular charities, because I don't think there should be a back end to altruism. I won't make this mistake again. I tweeted that if people want to buy my version of the song independently, I'll give the proceeds away, as I did last year, to the National Autistic Society, a non-proselytising charity.

Christmas means much to billions of people who don't believe in Jesus, and if you think that Christmas without Jesus is not Christmas, then you're out of touch, and if you think altruism without Jesus is not altruism, then you're a dick.


What a wonderful sentiment, and really true. That last paragraph is the most important part, and the bit that made me nod and smile at the screen. It also doesn't hurt that the song is wonderful, and makes my heart just clench with joy listening to it.

Third and final! Who thinks today's A Softer World strip needs to be have an "Inception" re-imagining?



Fucking heartbreaking, but could turned into any pairing that people wanted. The first idea I had was a Mal/Cobb version, based on those arguments that Mal actually was right, and did wake up, and watches over Cobb as he lives in his dream!reality. Which also really works with the alt-text over the image: "Please don't leave me alone with our stupid children"

Yes yes?

To everyone who read this, well done! You deserve nice shiny things. Since it's been a 1000 entries, maybe I should start being more active with posting. If you still read my journal, then you should comment! Or let me know, especially if this is the only way you know me :)

klena: (gabe needs to work on his magic act)
I have to admit that I have had this tab open in Firefox for about a month now, and kept not watching the interview for one reason or another. But I finally watched it tonight and oh my god band *_*

Mikey and Gerard sharing coffee!

Talk about Bandit!

Gerard being all ~artistic~ and ~emotive~

Plus the interviewer seemed really cool. Such, SUCH love!!

I have a list. It is called
A Life Beyond University: Never Aware Of What Was Around You

It is to expand myself beyond university, to broaden my horizons with whatever means I can find. Therefore:
- Books
- Political theories
- Philosophical theories
- Alternative/religious theories
- Music
- Movies
- Manga
- Games

I'm looking for recommendations. Is there something you think everyone should have read or listened to or watched? Is there something that has shaped you so strongly that it's a part of yourself? Do you enjoy giving people recommendations? Then please, do so with me. I'd really appreciate it

[livejournal.com profile] darth_zal tagged me and I could never turn down anything she asks of me...

A) People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blog and replace any question that they dislike with a new, original question.
B) Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.


1. Make a list of things you can see without getting up.
A map of the world which I marked with my world trip, a tv, fabric poi hanging on the back of my door, saiyuki calendar prints, my World Trip travel box, my beautiful camera, Cambodian Prayer flags and a huge fake purple lily.

2. How do you style your hair?
Depends on how lazy I'm feeling. Before I got it cut on Thursday, I would put it in pigtails or a little tiny ponytail for work or leave it all curly if it dried nicely.

3. What are you wearing right now?
A white t-shirt with a beautiful print: black twists and flowers and swirls with blue line-art birds and pink ropethreads and a shredded back, a black knee-length pokadot skirt i bought in a 380Y store in Japan and black underwear. And my watch, a black spiked braclet, tiny converse earrings, a 3 jewelled ring and my piercing jewelry

4. What kind of job would you never work?
....i'm not sure. I've done McDonalds and bar work...what else could I not really cope with? OH! Accident clean-up crews. I'd just get too upset or too fascinated I think.

5. Do you nap a lot?
Sometimes. If I'm in a period where I'm exhausted a lot (which is pretty regular) I tend to if I have the time, even though it screws my sleep pattern.

6. Who was the last person you hugged?
My mum about 10 minutes ago after I left the living room to go to bed, ha ha ha!

7. What's your current fandom/obsession/addiction?
Comics, tea, zombies, bandom.

8. What was the last thing you ate today?
A Flake Praline....although there is an easter egg taunting me on my desk....

9. Which is your favourite genocide?
...The Troubles! 'Sup Nireland, represent

10. What websites do you always watch when you get online?
Twitter, Deviantart, Hotmail, Livejournal, Kittencam and Yahoo. Recently, mysoju.com is also in there

Um...presents for my dad's birthday? And some cheap rose-fairy lights, Snakes On A Plane and Zoolander. The last three came to 5 pounds. \o/

12. What are you doing right now?
Buffering Hana Yori Dango 2, eyeing my easter egg, grinning like an idiot at Patrick Stumph's voice coming through my speakers and attempting to design a watermark for my photography.

13. What do you think about when you go to bed at night?
What I've got to do tomorrow or what I failed to do that day if it's been an average day. Picking at my fuckups if it's a bad day. Or plotting creative things that i'll forget about if it's been a good day.

14. What is your favourite food?
I don't actually know! Love me some Japanese but I also love my mum's egg and chips. OM NOM NOM NOM

15. Do you collect anything?
Comics - the Umbrella Academy is my priority. Manga. Gaiman books....books in general. Stationary//art supplies. HATS AND SOCKS. Trufax

16. Which Hogwarts house would you be in? Why?
Gryffindor. Because I am stupidly strong-headed and a Defender of the Weak, yo!

17. How are you?
Not so bad! A little stressy but that's consistent and wishing i wasn't so tired so I could do more creative things but!

18. What are you currently reading?
...technically, I am trying to read "Moll Flanders" but I'm not really reading it. I am about to pick up from books from my bookshelf now though.

19. Say something about the person who tagged?
She is like a reverse-eclipse. Whenever she's around, she makes my entire world stop and blinds me. Besides being ridiculously good-looking and stupidly talented and someone who has been around me for over 10 years, she makes my heart sing and puts a stupid smile on my face ♥

So, that meme that [livejournal.com profile] waxrose tagged me in! About writing introspective meme about my lack of writing skills :D )

(music I've heard and want to download)

Yael Naim - "new soul"

1. Because my beloved Canadian beauty is coming home tonight and I have a bunch of ficlets I should type up before I completely forget.

Call me crazy but they are after us (you don't have to know the truth), Arashi )

I was going to throw my 'getting kidnapped by strange Japanese boybands' thing up but it's awful and so. No.

And the first bit of what was supposed to be a little tiny drabble for [livejournal.com profile] crazychickencow to persuade her to write more into the Sho/Nino/Jun angst triangle. Except it's not a drabble and now more than looks like an accompaniment to the main fics. Dammit!

the road to hell is paved with good intentions )

And there's more at ramen with Ohno and Aiba realising something's going on and messing up by trying to help the wierd Nino/Sho/Jun tension they notice and aslkfdlfjks I'LL GET THERE!

2. I SORTED MY FLIGHT HOME TONIGHT AND I DEFINITELY KNOW WHEN I'M GOING HOME AND IT'S, LIKE, 18 DAYS AND OH MY GOD AND MUM SENT MONEY TELLING ME TO TREAT MYSELF. :O

3. ....HOME!

4. I went to Salem today with Fran and got myself Ankh earrings that are beautiful and that I have been desiring since I lost my only cheap and nasty pair just after I started working at McDonalds. ANKH EARRING YAY

5. Will get around to doing that awesome writing meme that [livejournal.com profile] waxrose tagged me for. But first! A little meme.

we all have our reasons for our icons but do you ever wonder what someone means when they use a particular icon in their post/response? Well, now's your chance to ask!

6. (I completely forgot about this until 2 minutes ago) My dreams are getting awesome! On Wednesday night I had this awesome gothic inspired dream where Sho and Kei (yes, as in Sho and Kei from "Moonchild" - Gackt and Hyde) and someone else were travelling with me around these church/house grounds and I mocked them a lot, calling Kei dad and sitting on his shoulders a lot.

Last night my dreams had: me and Gerard Way in gothy dress (and Gerard at one point wearing this Victorian dress I wore in LA with a pair of socks I owe) and walking about this club. He also took my hand and twined my fingers with his when I was leaning against his knees. There was also The Master leaning over my friend Andy who was wearing his Frank N Furter costume and mocking/ fucking with my mind. Um....what else. Oh! Pete Wentz, Gee Way and I all sitting at a table in this diner and Pete gave me his stuff to look after and I didn't look at it or try to pry and this made him really happy. Plus some other stuff that was AMAZINGLY AWESOME regarding travel (and this station that looked a little like the one in Washington) but...\o/
Dreams involving Pete Wentz, Gerard Way and the Master one night and Gackt and Hyde the night before? A++ brain, good work.

Alright. Food. And journal writing and maybe some art. Oh yeah!

MEME!

Everyone has things they journal about.

Everyone has things they don't journal about.

Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't journal about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: last movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on lima beans, favorite type of underwear, etc.

Repost in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other! {Just understand that the answer might be "Nunya" or "I'll tell you in private."}

Feel free to ask more than one thing, by the way! Oh, and I'll most likely just reply to your question in a comment instead of making a separate post.


Plus, reposting the last one too! AS I WANT TO WRITE MORE DAMMIT

1. Comment with a title and a fandom
2. I will reply with a summary (or excerpt or snippet or whatever), the pairing, and at least the first paragraph.
3. Do it yourself! If you'd like.

From the adorable [livejournal.com profile] littleredfox

1. what one thing (sight/attraction/monument etc. not ppl) do you dare not miss while you're in the states?

I'm not sure! I mean, I just enjoy the travelling and talking to people - I never actually plan things properly! This drives some people mad - especially my poor mum! I'd really, really love to go to a Con and cosplay because I think it'd be awesome, even if I have no clue about costume making or who I'd go as. I really want to go to Central Park once I hit New York because I think that would be a fantastic final (or near final) image of the States to take home with me.

I just want to see things, y'know? And a part of me wants to do something silly like find some of the places mentioned in "American Gods", really, ha ha ha!

2. what languages can you speak / do you want to be able to speak?

What can I speak. English - sometimes not very well! I speak about GCSE level French, a few years of German, not so confident Japanese, a smidgen of Irish/Gaelic and a few words in Polish.

I do wish I could speak most of those better - I'd also love to be able to speak Italian - the way it flows is beautiful and I'd love to be able to sing a few more songs in Irish, I guess!

3. you love sal, but how do you feel about lilly?

I feel pity for Lilly, in the same way I do Sal. When I first read "Echoes" I felt a vague annoyance at her, I could never explain why, but the last time I re-read "Echoes" I saw her as beautiful and sad and tragic. And I have a soft spot for beautiful, sad, tragic figures. So there's the answer! I have a soft spot for the poor girl.

4. what's the dominant emotion when you consider meeting joey in person?

Bubbly, nervous excitement. I am nervous because meeting Joey and oh God, what if I say something wrong or I make a dick out of myself or he doesn't like me or you don't like me - oh God! And excitement because. Well, I've known him...what, 4-5 years now? And I really do want to meet him. Also, it'll be awesome to tell the grandkids one day - "I met Joey Lee and Claire too!" "...Shuttup Granny." XD

5. what's the last good movie you saw?

God, what was even the last movie I saw?! I finally watched "House of Flying Daggers" which was beautifully shot and the music was fabulous but it didn't deeply touch any real heartstrings. Let me think....Oh! The last good film I saw was Grosse Point Blank. John Cusack and Minnie Driver and assassins and snark and Violet Femmes. Loved it really!

....I miss going to the cinema now!

{edit] WHY DO I TELL SUCH LIES?! The last good movie I saw was "Stardust"- duh!

Because my beloved [livejournal.com profile] sacchifox asked me! Questions~~!

1) If you could become anyone, real or fictional, for just one day, who would you be?

I honestly do not know! In the past while I've never really wanted to be anyone else, I've been vaguely happy with who I am. I've had moments where I've wished I've looked like someone else or I was more attractive or clever or productive or not such a fuck-up to make someone else happy - or to make myself happier!

But, in honour of this question, I would...I guess I'd love to be Rose for a day whilst she travelled with the Doctor as she was always learning and the world was always new to her afterwards.

2) Describe your favorite moment from Dr. Who.

....I don't know! I could give you hundreds. this is where I start to go downhill )

Right, I have rambled far, FAR too long now and made no sense and I'm going to stop Who!rambling now. Sorry Sacchi!
3) What's your favorite drink?

Um...I like fruit juice a lot - pineapple, apple, orange etc and I've been drinking water an awful lot to get healthy and stuff! I still love Vanilla Coke in my heart, except for the fact that it is not made anymore which makes me cry!

Probably tea though. Tea is my one true love that has never left me! Despite the bad circulation I get from it, ha ha ha ha!

Alcoholically, I like sweet drinks. I drink Malibu rum with coke or cocktails.

4) What would you name your oldest daughter?

I don't know. I actually have always insisted that I would never have kids because they would be a mess. No, honestly! I walk into walks, for God's sake, what would my kids be like?!?! However, there just seem to be far too many signs that I will be a mum. So I will see what happens!

I'm not sure what I'd name the kids though. I joke about naming them something awful like Cuthbert or Sara-Louise to annoy them or to name them after the wrong month. Like a June baby being called December but I'm not sure! But if she was the eldest girl, like me, I'd want her to have a good strong name, something she's be happy with and something that people could twist into nicknames.

....That's hard. Name my kids for me!

5) What's the first thing that comes to mind upon hearing the word "epiphany?"

A bunch of images, like viewing them through a kalediscope. Sitting in Mass years ago and watching the spring light stream through the stained glass windows and the quiet and the belief, the tingly, the heart-catching sensation that maybe my soul was new and I could start again. And moments being blinded, like the sun hitting your eyes and being dazzled, and being devestated and losing everything, self, knowledge, name, all of it, and integrating it all back into yourself. And quiet moments where you lean against the metal Production Bin in work, arms behind your back, looking at the floor but not really seeing it and just gasping softly, slightly as something you never considered just hits you.

Ten people I would sleep with, real or fictional! And then tag five people.

1. Rose Tyler. (Dr. Who) I think she's hot, alright?
2. Sheik (Legend of Zelda). Red eyes, blonde, mysterious. I likes!
3. Salamanca. (Final Waltz) Because I'm her voice and I like the Narcissus-complexity of it. XP Plus, she's experienced.
4. Remus Lupin. (Harry Potter) I have always loved Remus.
5. Cho Hakkai (Saiyuki) Scarred and wiry and injury to the eye! Except for the fact he would probably KILL ME IN THE FACE after. Trufax
6. Noct (Derelict Heaven, Waltz, the universe). Because he's an absolute cutey and adorable and yes, slight crush there!
7. Dean Winchester. (Supernatural)....There is nothing to explain there.
8. Duo Maxwell (Gundam Wing) First fandom!Crush!
9. Rukia Kuchiki(Bleach) Strong willed, snarky, hot. Excellent.
10. ULTIMATE TIE The Doctor. (Dr. Who)
Blu Flyer.
