hi out there?

I like this meme :-)

Today has been declared lurker amnesty day!  Have you read me but never commented? Do you surf by occasionally? Here for the recs? Say hello! You are under no obligation to ever comment or delurk again, but here's a chance to do so in a post just for that. And if you do, no need to apologize or explain, I'm just curious.

IP checking is off, ljtoys is off, anon commenting allowed but screened to avoid spam and trolls.

fannish five meme

It's been fun reading this meme, so please, someone, ask me five things about fandom? Anything outside of Lotrips is kinda murky to me, so I tend to like AUs best.

catching up on happies

  1. The weather here has been cold (for us thinblooded types) but clear and gorgeous.

  2. Crossing things off lists! I found my list from Monday and I've done everything on it :-)

  3. Being used to my bifocals. I'm mostly nearsighted so I wear glasses all the time. But suddenly last spring, I couldn't read things about ten inches away, even with my glasses on, so I suddenly started bringing things close to my face, looking over my glasses. Hence: bifocals. I chose badly, they are not pretty, but it is nice to see properly.

  4. Synonyms for penis at Please note that the synonym "cock" is attested since 1618, "pillicock" c. 1300 and "dick" only since 1891. I don't remember which Medieval AU I was reading that used "dick", but it sounded really weird to me. And now I sit smugly knowing I was right :-)

    some happy things

    tagged by lionessfreedom, some happy things:
    1. My contract check came! I was pretty stressed because I'd done a lot of work with no pay, but they combined the first and second invoices and sent me a nice big check. WHEW.

    2. [info]kaydeefalls has made a fantastic Captain Jack vid. Watch it, for the montage of kisses if nothing else!

    3. A librarian of my acquaintance and probably yours is doing research on the use of Delicious in fandom, so you should all go fill out her interesting survey. I got to explain all about my tag bundles .

    I am a lemming

    I am lemming, hear me roar )

    Also I don't send holiday cards (I used to try, but then it was February...). So please don't feel you should send me anything. Let's just make some time for each other, soon. Even if you've been lurking, I'm curious about who you are and what you like.

    out-of-the-box meme

    Gacked from all over, I'm very curious to see what people ask. Lurkers too!

    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, thoughts on yaoi, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc. Repost in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other.

    itunes meme and genre question

    gacked from lineaelyn

    far too much detail )

    Question: what's the difference between Rock, Alternative, Alt-Rock, Alt-Punk and Classic Rock? Where do The Mountain Goats, Patti Smith, and The Decemberists go? For that matter, are the Beatles Pop or Classic Rock or something else? The Proclaimers? Elton John? If there are violins involved, does that make it Pop? Do drums and/or electric guitars signal Rock? I am so lost!

    How about Electronica, Trance, Techno, House and Industrial?

    What I'd like to do is use bigger categories here, as I don't really care about subtle distinctions, but I don't want to be so wrong as to make people go "huh?" (I do lots of subtle distinctions in Classical and World music categories)

    celebrity sex meme

    [info]canciona tagged me with this meme, and it's taken me a while.

    (1) List 5 celebrities you would have sex with without even asking questions.
    (2) Put all of them IN ORDER of your lust for them. (5 - 1, 1 is the hottest.)
    (3) Say which movie/show/thing it was that hooked you.
    (4) Supply photos for said people.
    (5) Tag five people!

    There's no one I'd have sex with without asking questions, it just doesn't work that way in my head. That said, I enjoyed thinking about it very much. if I wasn't married... )

    Hmmm. I seem to be more heterosexual than I thought. Part of it is that celebrity women have to stay very thin and I like more substance and body to a sex object. Being so thin makes them seem fragile, even when they're not, and that's not sexy to me. I stood next to Miranda Otto for a minute while she was signing autographs -- she's 5'6" in three-inch-heels, very finely boned, and about half my girth. I was afraid I'd knock her over.
