You Are Ceramics
You are open to the world and it's possibilities. You are able to start something without knowing how it will end.
You trust your intuition above everything else. Going with your gut often works out.

You believe that every day objects can and should be art.
The best art allows ordinary life to be more stylish and beautiful.



Now this is more like me.

You Are 60% Girly
You're a little girly, a little boyish, and probably a whole lot indie.
You have your own unique style, and it pretty much defies gender lines.


I'm a little more girly than that. :(

"This can be a quick one. Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you've read that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes."

Not so hard because I read a lot. I have two non-fiction and two kids' books on my list.

In no order:

1. Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier
2. Hiroshima by John Hershey (had to read it for a WWII unit in history class)
3. Bridge to Terebithia by Katherine Patterson (best kids/young adult novel ever!)
4. Atonement by Ian McEwan
5. The Road by Cormac McCarthy
6. On the Beach by Nevil Shute
7. Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank
8. Twenty Thousand Streets Under the Sky by Patrick Hamilton
9. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
10. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
11. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
12. Bleak House by Charles Dickens
13. Anne Frank- the Diary of a Young Girl
14. Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor (another childhood favorite)
15. To Kill a Mockbird by Harper Lee

Yes, a lot of the books that have stuck with me have to do with death and destruction, and racism and other bad stuff! Well, you can't read Hiroshima or Anne Frank's diary or Mockingbird and not have them stick to you. Terebithia made me aware of my mortality, that kids my age could suddenly die. And growing up during the Cold War made me think and worry about nuclear war. Naturally books like On the Beach and Alas, Babylon stuck with me!

Speaking of books, I've finished the last three Torchwood novels I had, and now I need to think of something else to read. I'm so ashamed of myself for not reading more this year. :(

Your result for The Social Persona Test (What kind of man/woman are you?)...

The Librarian (QTBF)

Quirky Traditional Beta Female

You know the story--The quiet, smart girl who emerges from her shell to become the new queen bee. Nothing wrong with nerdy girls, in fact there aren't enough of you. Your best match is The Late Bloomer, as he once was the male version of you.


You are more QUIRKY than NORMAL.


You are more TRADITIONAL than LIBERAL.


You are more PASSIVE than DOMINANT.


When picking a date, consider: The Late Bloomer (QTAM), The Lord of the Misfits (QLAM), The Snowball's Chance in Hell (QTBM), The Suit (NTAM), or The Altar Boy (NTBM).


Avoid: The Frat Boy (NLAM)

From this post, the movie quote quiz:

http://kiramowett.livejournal.com/364660.html

The three that nobody got:

1. Eating Raoul (the cheap piece of meat from that quote? Voyager's Robert Beltran.)

6. Naked Gun 2

9. Working Girl

I actually stumped people with movie quotes! Usually, my quotes are too easy!

You Are a Lynx



You are a quiet observer of the world around you. Your wisdom comes from listening carefully.

You've always been extra sensitive and aware. And it's made it difficult for you to fit in.



You see past people's outward personas. You are able to penetrate a stranger's soul.

What you've learned about people is both beautiful and ugly. And you keep these secrets to yourself.

The movie line meme. Haven't done it in a while and I have a bunch of quotes to use. You know the rules, guess the movie the line came from, no cheating!

One hint- all but three of these are 80s movies.

1. "At the store, can you buy a new frying pan? I'm a little squeamish about using the one we use to kill people." (I will be delighted if anyone gets this one.)

Second quote from this movie: "It's amazing what you can do with a cheap piece of meat if you know how to treat it."

2. "I've been kidnapped by K-Mart!" Ruthless People, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] qthewetsprocket  . 

3. "Okay, you've stated your position clearly. Now I'm going to state mine. Get in the fucking car. Now." Stand By Me, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] qthewetsprocket .

4. "She's dead, sir. They took her to the morgue."
"The morgue? She'll be FURIOUS!"  Death Becomes Her, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] alpinemaps  .

5. "Pink is my signature color." Steel Magnolias, guessed by crusherbunny.

6. "Do you realize that because of you this city is being overrun by baboons?"
"Well, isn't that the fault of the voters?"

Another quote:  "Is this some kind of bust?"
"Well, it's very impressive, yes, but we need to ask you a few questions."



7. "Excuse me, you're biting my butt!" Madagascar, guessed by [personal profile] terri_osborne   .

8. "You know what a penis is. Stay away from it!" Peggy Sue Got Married, guessed by  [livejournal.com profile] romulantbonz  .

9. "Six thousand dollars? It's not even leather!"

Another quote: " I have a head for business and a bod for sin. Is there anything wrong with that?"

10. "Forgive me, Majesty. I am a vulgar man! But I assure you, my music is not." Amadeus, guessed by  [livejournal.com profile] boywhocantsayno  .

You Would Win Best Costume Design



You are imaginative, artistic, and very unique. You are a natural designer.

You can picture entire movies in your head. You are incredibly visual.



As long as you can remember, you've always had a flare for fashion. You like to experiment with looks.

You like dressing up in costumes and outfits. And not just for Halloween!



Hmmm, maybe. I can't sew, but I love to put outfits together.

Tomorrow is the Oscar marathon! Five movies in twelve hours. Free popcorn with refills. A good movie theater (AMC) instead of the crap I have at home (Regal). Yay! I'll post my thoughts on Sunday afternoon (I'll be too beat tomorrow night).

Taken from [livejournal.com profile] calliopes_pen :

Part of being on Livejournal is inevitably gaining a number of LJ buddies.  Unfortunately, as time wears on, it's easy to forget where all of them came from. Post this in your journal and have your friends respond with how they recall first 'meeting' you.



Of course, I knew a good chunk of my f-list from TrekBBS.

Dalaire had it.



You Are LOL



The internet is always cracking you up. You could waste the day away finding things to laugh at.

You're usually the first one to find a new funny video, picture, or website.



You're always up for wasting time online, even if (especially if) you're at work.

You also tend to spend a lot of time chatting, especially with people who make you laugh out loud.

Grab the book nearest you. Right now. Turn to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post that sentence along with these instructions in your LiveJournal. Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

"Don't make a joke about it, it's unfair," I said, "and I think I'd better see about those tickets, and say good-bye now." Rebecca, Daphne DuMarier.

Funny that the first book I touched happens to be my favorite. :p It was on the shelf nearest to me. I think I'll read it today.

It's so cold! I think I'm just going to bundle up with blankets on the couch while I read and cross stitch.

Is your cat plotting to kill you?

My kitties love me. They wouldn't want to kill me! :p

Only time I get the evil eye from either of them is when I have a brush in my hand.
