I will have a more substantive post soon, though. I've got a few things percolating in my brain. :P

Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

These five things are from [livejournal.com profile] connielane:

Jane Austen, Wahleecon, Orlando Bloom, Religion, My Family )

Hey, that was fun. Anyone want five things? Or want to give me five more?

Hi, folks. :) It should come as no surprise to any of you that I've been having a rough few months-- usually when I hit rough patches, my posting to LJ drops dramatically. Not that I've been all that diligent about posting in the last couple of years, but even so, it's gotten to the point of ridiculousness. Well. Anyway. I've started seeing a counselor again, and she recommended that I journal more often. So I'm trying. I've bought a Moleskine notebook to carry around with me, and I've already written a few pages in it. In addition, I'm going to try to update my LJ at least once a week. In fact, I hope to do two posts a week: one substantive update, and one Movies My Family Quotes post. And who knows? Maybe I'll even post more than that.

So to jump-start my new posting routine, I give you that 25 things about me meme that went around Facebook. I got tagged a couple of times, but didn't get to it until now. So here we are instead. :P

25 random things you may not know about me )

Okay, that took most of the evening. :P I'm not tagging anyone, since pretty much everyone I know has done it. Ah, well.

So my brother showed us this movie on Sunday. It's a short film that's been making the rounds of film festivals, and it's really fun and fabulous. Watch it!



Don't you love it? Don't you wish it could really be like this? I think it can! I know I could use some of that kind of validation--and I'd love to return the favor. So I'm inventing a meme!

We could all use a little validation in our lives-- an outside acknowledgment that we're not really so bad as we think we are sometimes. A little pick-me up to help us believe in ourselves. So here's the deal: In the comments, post something that you admire about me. Not about my talents, or my abilities, because talents can wax and wane. Not about outward appearance, because when has that ever really mattered? Instead, post something about who I really am, the core person that makes me me. Then post this in your own journal, and I'll return the favor. Let's bring a smile to as many of our friends' faces as possible. :)

And since my thoughts on my life are too scattered right now to write a coherent entry (I blame Doctor Who), I might as well. I'm not tagging anyone else, though. If you want to do it, go ahead. I think most of my flist has done it already.

So. Answering the questions-- if I don't like one, I can change it. So.

Because I've managed to be once again screwed around with by my former employer (they assured me that my benefits would last till the end of March, and I just got a letter today saying they actually ended Februrary 29, oh, and apparently I WON'T be getting my 49 hours of paid time off reimbursed), and I desperately need a distraction, here's a meme.

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, etc. Repost in your own journal if you are so inclined.


Oh, I did have an interview yesterday, at a podiatrist's office. That doesn't offer benefits. GAH.

I saw this again this week, and realized that I'd signed up on [livejournal.com profile] ladyvorkosigan's LJ, but forgot to post this here. So. . .

Pay It Forward:

I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment here on my blog. I don't know what that gift will be yet, but you will receive it within 365 days. The only thing you have to do in return is "pay it forward" by making a similar agreement on your blog.

Note: It will most likely be something knitted. Just so you know.

Okay, so I got Matthew Lewis' autograph. He was actually rather quiet, but a total cutie anyway. I posed for a pic with me, though. I shall have to finish the assignments that were due. I spent three days straight sitting in front of them.

Second:

To all the GT people: I'm sorry for what happened to you, but I'm glad it all came out eventually. I read fic at GT, I even archived my first fic there. It was nice to have her over there, chirping in her sleep again.

I picked out some new cool way to do research for literature.

And then I have thesis hours. This is the beginning, at least, of my responses to your questions.



What DO you think of Dumblydoor's death?

Dumbledore dying was not unexpected; the manner of his death was. I feel that his death was necessary, especially for Harry.

That said, I bawled, both times I read her work.
Having my maternal grandparents (they're so cute), a coconut lime verbena wallflower air freshener from Laura and Ben (yummy!), a $15 gift certificate to the Black Sheep Wool Company from Ben and Amanda (new yarn! Whoot!), and a new PIN. Bah. I don't use this icon all that often, though.


This is a close-up of this picture, entitled either "Two Women at a Window" or "A Girl and Her Duenna" by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo. I came across the picture during my time as a reference assistant at BYU's library, while adding new art books to the department website. I was struck by the expression on the girl's face, and had the art in mind when I started Ginny up to show Kate something, her network card was still in, and it felt wonderful, but I'm still just as tired as when I went to P.F. Chang's with my family for my sisters' birthday, saw Superman Returns twice (once on Friday, once last night, and it was as bad as calling our beloved Jane "Miss Austin."
