A meme

Got two assignments due within a week, one of them a four-page paper. Haven't even started them. This is not going to be a fun week.

Anyway, the meme: Comment here and I will pick 7 of your interests. You explain what they are/why you like them in your journal.

[livejournal.com profile] naamah_darling asked me about these:

Angst - My favourite genre. If somebody isn't angsting over something, I get bored fast. Makes good drama in fiction, but less fun in real life.

Introspection - Just sitting and thinking. Considering how much time I spend alone and how little I talk to anyone, I'd die of boredom if I didn't like thinking. It's how I relax. Sometimes I think about stuff going on in my life (not much), mostly I daydream. I get tons of fic ideas from doing this, but never manage to write anything. Still haven't worked out why that is.

Forbidden love - A subgenre of angst. I love it when characters' emotions totally screw with them in horrible situations. Unless it gets sappy. Then I gag and stop reading/watching/whatever.

Phantom of the Opera - I loathe most musicals, but this one gets to me. I think it's all the angst and tragedy (another favourite genre). The Phantom is one my favourite tragic characters. I first saw this when I was seven, and have always been fascinated with the poor Phantom. And I like the music.

Vitriolic ranting - I wish I could do this. Trouble is, I can't maintain my rage while carefully composing a viscious rant, and don't get enough catharsis out of it. So I rant inarticulately inside my head instead, and read other people's rants for entertainment.

Old Blind Dogs - A Scottish folk band I'm fond of. Very lively music, some very morbid songs (there's one about dying of syphilis). Don't know if they're still together. They did a small concert at pub not far from where I lived when I was nine, which was when I first heard of them. Didn't go see them, due to being a tad underage.

Horror - Yet another favourite genre. I love horror movies! The gorier and grimmer the better. I can remember when my liking for it started. In kindergarten I carpooled with some neighbours who had some horror story on tape that we'd listen to on the way home. When I got home I'd have to go to the basement for some reason, and I'd keep thinking about the monster in the story, scare myself, and run back upstairs in terror. And the next day I'd be dying to hear the story again, even though I knew it would scare me.

Considering I'm in college now, it would be pretty sad if I couldn't pass this, wouldn't it?

You Passed 8th Grade Math

Congratulations, you got 10/10 correct!
fellbeastie: (csi - pickle)
Outcast Genius
60 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 69% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in all three, earning you the title of: Outcast Genius

Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don't care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are *truly* important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occassion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).

Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.

Congratulations!

Thanks Again! -- THE NERD? GEEK? OR DORK? TEST

My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 63% on nerdiness

You scored higher than 75% on geekosity

You scored higher than 98% on dork points


If you liked my test, send it to your friends!

Nature
C:

Your Beauty lies
in Nature. Down to earth, laid back and a natural
beauty. You have no need for
make-up or accessories that most others do. In fact
you most likely find them a
nuisance. You are probably a little tom-boyish in
your jeans and tees with a
great love for nature. You probably know more about
plants and animals than most
people and you'd rather spend your times outdoors
and in the sun, independent
and free. You can be a bit distant with people,
preferring the company of
animals over people, which isn't always the best
thing. You can be kind and
sweet, but not many see that side of you as you
often have misunderstandings
with people. You are very go-with-the-flow sort of
person and usually try to
avoid fights even if it means changing your opinion
or belief. Still, you are
you look your best actually without make-up and in
casual clothes. Very few can
say that. Be proud.

Pretty much all of this is dead on, except the horse part. I've never been into horses.

It even got my hair and eyes right. How about that? Wouldn't call my eyes bright, but they are green. Not bad at all.

Memory of Trees! Love that song!

GenreGothics
GOTHICS! - Deep, dark, mysterious and melodramatic.
You are drawn to write tales of the shadows and
what might lurk there. Could it be Love? Or
Madness? Anne Rice and Brahm Stoker are your
guides.

I've been tagged by [livejournal.com profile] auntiemeesh.

Post six of your current favourite songs, then tag six people to do it.

I seem to be listening to soundtracks these days, so that eliminates most of my current favourites. Will have to dig out some older ones.

1. The Phantom of the Opera, The Point of No Return
2. Matthew Good Band, Strange Days
3. Old Blind Dogs, The Cruel Sister
4. Delerium, A Poem for Byzantium
5. Avril Lavigne, I'm With You
6. Enya, Na Laetha Geal M'óige

I'm tagging six random people from my f-list. I have no idea who has already done this.

1. Take this list and post it into your LJ, and mark the movies you've seen in bold.
2. Add five more movies to the end of the list.
3. Count how many you've seen. If more than 70, you are a Movie Whore. Post the score of how many you've seen.
4. (optional) Question your friends' taste in movies (because you can).

Only 87 out of 390?! )

Friends
You need friends.
You have been very lonely in your life and
people have, for one reason or another, stayed
away from you. The isolation is killing you
inside and all you want is to feel a connection
with somebody else. You now have little
self-esteem left inside and have dark thoughts
about life and relationships. However you still
have that crave of friends inside of you, even
if you won't admit that to yourself anymore.
And even if you do have a friend, you still
feel lonely because you have a hard time
letting people in since you have been isolated
so long.

Does anyone even look at my entries? Last time I tried a meme like this, I got no response at all. Anyone out there?

Gacked this from [livejournal.com profile] topaztook: Pick 5 of your favourite books and post the first sentence of each. Friends try to guess titles and authors. I have to do it slightly differently, due to a lack of copies of favourite books at hand. Instead, here are opening lines from 6 books, 2 each by 3 of my favourite authors.

1) It is so appropriate to colour hope yellow, like that sun we seldom saw.

2) With the woman on his mind and a deep uneasiness in his heart, Spencer Grant drove through the glistening night, searching for the red door.

3) On that Tuesday in January, when her life changed forever, Martine Rhodes woke with a headache, developed a sour stomach after washing down two aspirin with grapefruit juice, guaranteed herself an epic bad-hair day by mistakenly using Dusty's shampoo instead of her own, broke a fingernail, burnt her toast, discovered ants swarming through the cabinet under the kitchen sink, eradicated the pests by firing a spray can of insecticide as ferociously as Sigourney Weaver wielded a flamethrower in one of those old extraterrestrial-bug movies, cleaned up the resultant carnage with paper towels, hummed Bach's Requiem as she solemnly consigned the tiny bodies to the trash can, and took a telephone call from her mother, Sabrina, who still prayed for the collapse of Martie's marriage three years after the wedding.

4) News item from the Westover (Me.) weekly Enterprise, August 19, 1966: RAIN OF STONES REPORTED.

5) If Jesus died almost two thousand years ago to save us all from the worst we had in us, he'd failed in our area, exept on Sundays between the hours of ten AM and noon.

6) The terror, which would not end for another twenty-eight years - if it ever did end - began, so far as I know or can tell, with a boat made from a sheet of newspaper floating down a gutter swollen with rain.

EDIT - The following have been guessed correctly:

1) V.C. Andrews, Flowers in the Attic
4) Stephen King, Carrie
6) Stephen King, It

I need practice, so request away:

Every person on your f-list gets to request a drabble from you. In return, they have to post this in their journal and write a drabble for you. Post all fandoms you're willing to write for. Your friends can pick a relationship, a story arc, a missing scene, whatever. They comment with what they want, and you write drabbles and post it in your journal.

I can write LotR or Lost. No NC-17, no slash.
