Ah, procrastination! This meme is perfect for the last weekend of work I have ahead of me this semester.

a. Post a list of 10 TV shows you love (current or cancelled)
b. Have your friends list guess your favorite character from each show.
c. When guessed bold the line and write a little bit about why you like that character (I'll do this by editing the post itself).
d. Post in your own livejournal.

Welcome to Procrastination Station (which is one stop down from Conjunction Junction on the tracks to academic hell). I'll be your host tonight. Recently I was tagged with a meme by [profile] bluescissors76. I have to proffer seven facts, and then tag seven of my friends and threaten them with all kinds of chain-letter doom if they don't propagate the meme. Easy enough.

1. One of the deep sorrows of my life is the fact that a number of deeply resonant and beautiful things have been described ad nauseum. For instance: springtime, falling cherry blossoms, fluffy clouds, sunsets, birds exploding into flight, etc. These are sights that move me. Can I describe them in a story? No. Why? Because it's 2007 and we ran out of new descriptions for sunsets in 1843, that's why.

2. I usually write about homely or strange-looking people (or at least not terribly attractive people, anyway). That said, I keep trying to figure out how I could write a guy who looks like Nathan Fillion into my novel. That way if by some fluke it gets completed, published, and optioned for a movie, I could be all like: "You know who I was visualizing for this character when I wrote it? Nathan Fillion. Oh, really? You have his number? Maybe we should call and find out what he's doing." And then he'll be in the movie and we'll hang out for drinks and I'll be all like "Oh Nate...can I call you Nate?...do you still have the brown jacket? You know...the browncoat?" And he'll be all like "I brought it just for you." AND THEN I WILL WEAR IT. I WILL WEAR MAL'S COAT. The end.

3. I have had possibly too much coffee today in the form of about five cups. Welcome back to university life, zenithblue.

4. Currently I've enacted a rule that says I'm not allowed to leave this chair until I write one page of the story I'm working on. This has worked sometimes to get me laboriously through a really dreadful draft. What this means for you the reader is that I might post on livejournal six more times tonight. I also might wet myself, but that won't really affect you.

5. One of the grosser things my body can do has to do with my super flexible shoulders. If I have someone to help I can push my shoulders all the way back until my arms are crossing and almost lying flat against my back. This is what comes of spending your formative years swimming butterfly.

6. When no one is home I do the tiny bit of ballet I know how to do all through the house. This includes plies and arabesques and occasionally if I'm feeling ambitious, a pirouette. Also I do this in my skivvies most the time. Remember Risky Business? Yeah.

7. The worst song I ever sang at karaoke was "Psycho Killer" by the Talking Heads. Somewhere between the fourth and fifth rum shot I managed to forget that I don't really speak French. The best song I ever did was the Foo Fighters' "All My Life." Apparently, Dave Groll and I have the exact same vocal range (such as it is). Who knew?

Okay. Also sprach zenithblue.

Now for the tags: you are it, [profile] drawgirl, [profile] spacecowboytom, [personal profile] alecaustin, [personal profile] te_amo_azul, [profile] shandralyn, [profile] johnnybrainwash, and Mr. Birthday Boy [profile] helpimarock. If you don't complete the meme you'll be hit by a bus full of underfed grizzly bears. Or something.

...is making the rounds again! [personal profile] decemberthirty was kind enough to throw the interview questions my way this time.

And here we go!



All right: the meme propagates, as ever, when anyone who is interested asks me to ask you five questions. I'll do so, and you post the answers (and the same offer I just made) in your own blog. Cheers!

Meme ganked from [profile] bluescissors76 (AKA Bert).

This feels oddly right, even though it makes me sound more well-balanced than is a reasonable assessment.

Your Score: Snuffleupagus


You scored 58% Organization, 53% abstract, and 50% extroverted!




This test measured 3 variables.


First, this test measured how organized you are. Some muppets like Cookie Monster make big messes, while others like Bert are quite anal about things being clean.


Second, this test measured if you prefer a concrete or an abstract viewpoint. For the purposes of this test, concrete people are considered to gravitate more to mathematical and logical approaches, whereas abstract people are more the dreamers and artistic type.


Third, this test measured if you are more of an introvert or an extrovert. By definition, an introvert concentrates more on herself and an extrovert focuses more on others. In this test an introvert was somebody that either tends to spend more time alone or thinks more about herself.


You are somewhat organized, both concrete and abstract, and both introverted and extroverted.



I bet you didn't think you were Snuffleupagus. Let's find out why.



You are both somewhat organized. You have a good idea where you put things and you probably keep your place reasonably clean. You aren't totally obsessed with neatness though. Alloyius Snuffleupagus (and all Snuffleupagus') is not sloppy by nature, but he moves so incredibly slowly that it is impossible for him to be totally organized.


You both are about equally concrete and abstract thinkers. You have a good balance in your life. You know when to be logical at times, but you also aren't afraid to explore your dreams and desires... within limits of course. Snuffy generally has very basic interests, but he explores his abstract sensitive side when he plays his snuffleflute.


You both are somewhat introverted. Originally Snuffleupagus was very shy and was only Big Bird's invisible friend. However as he has aged he has started to build new friendships with new characters. Like Snuffy, you probably like to have some time to yourself. However, you do appreciate spending time with your friends, and you aren't scared of social situations.

 


The other possible characters are

Oscar the Grouch

Big Bird

Cookie Monster

Ernie

Elmo

Kermit the Frog

Grover

The Count

Guy Smiley

Bert


If you enjoyed this test, I would love the feedback! Also if you want to tell me your favorite Sesame Street character, I can total them up and post them here. Perhaps your choice will win!

...I know, I've been doing a lot of memes lately. Sometime soon I'll have something more creative for you.

Until then, I'm jumping on the bandwagon. Via [profile] lagizma, [profile] helpimarock, [profile] blozor, et. al, I will now answer all of these questions using nothing but the song titles of one band. Predictably, my band is the Cure.

1) Are you male or female: "The Perfect Girl"
2) Describe Yourself: "Splintered in her Head"
3) How do some people feel about you: "All I Have to Do is Kill Her"
4) How do you feel about yourself: "Six Different Ways"
5) Ex boyfriends/girlfriends: "Prayers for Rain"
6) Describe current boyfriend/girlfriend/crush: "The Same Deep Water as You"
7) Describe where you want to be: "From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea"
8) How do you feel about your friends: "Close to Me"
9) Describe life: "Round & Round & Round"
10) Describe how you love: "Punish Me with Kisses"
11) What would you ask for if you had just one wish: "To Wish Impossible Things"
12) Share a few words of Wisdom: "Play for Today"
13) Now say goodbye: "Last Dance"

A morning meme, lifted from Ms. [profile] sliding_doors. What I love best is the name of this quiz, really.

I feel sort of wishy washy regarding these results. And also a little, uh, dorky, for scoring so high on the "otherkin" scale. *gulp*

Honest, I don't believe I'm a changeling.

You scored as True Alternative. You are a True Alternative! Labels do not suit you well, particularly as you tend to strike your own path and to grow purely via experience. No armchair quarterbacking for you! Originality and creation are your specialities, and sometimes you can even articulate what the hell just happened. Someday you may find yourself drawing the maps for other people... lots of other people.

True Alternative

Mystic

I'm feeling a wee bit sulky that my Catwoman score wasn't very high, but otherwise I'm pretty down with the results.

Duck season...rabbit season...duck season...rabbit season...no! Neither! It's tag season! And I'm IT!


1. One book that changed your life?


Okay, even if you've heard this from me a million times...Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace

2. One book you have read more than once?


Two Girls Fat and Thin by Mary Gaitskill

3. One book you would want on a desert island?


A blank notebook. But only if I have a pen with me.

4. One book that made you laugh?


Carry On, Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse

5. One book that made you cry?

I recently cried reading The Keep by Jennifer Egan

6. One book you wish had been written?

A poetry collection from Lucy Grealy--does anyone know where to find any of her poems?

7. One book you wish had never had been written?


I always hated the second five books in Zelazny's Amber Chronicles (the ones that are about Corwin's son)--they screwed with the entire universe he'd established

8. One book you are currently reading?

Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind

9. One book you have been meaning to read?

anything by William Vollman

10. Now tag five people.


Dude, I don't have five friends who haven't already done this...okay, let's see what I can do:

[profile] drawgirl
[profile] hplovescats
[profile] scribbleeso
[personal profile] alecaustin
[profile] punkybrister69
[profile] [profile]
zenithblue: (Default)
I guess I asked questions of everyone else, so it's only fair of me to fulfill the other part of the contract.

Anyone who cares to can ask me 3 questions. Ask me anything you want. ANYTHING! Doesn't mean I'll answer them in the way you expect.

Then go to your journal, copy and paste this, allowing your friends (including me) to ask you anything. 

And for Christ's sake, at least one person ask something so it's not totally obvious that I'm a loser. : )

...though I'm sort of surprised not to see the moon on there. Otherwise this is exactly what my deck tells me every time I bust it out.


You scored as III - The Empress. The Empress is a maternal symbol. She is the mother figure who loves, nurtures and protects.
She will protect you, she will always be there when you are in trouble. When you fall over and graze your knee, the Empress will kiss it better.
Yet she is not a weak figure. Her compassion is strength. If her children are threatened she will stop at nothing to protect them. If well aspected in a Tarot spread, the Empress can symbolise security, protection and unconditional love. If badly aspected it can represent over-protectiveness, fear of risk taking and refusal to face the real world.
