resurrecting an old meme

I was looking for something in my journal, which naturally led to re-reading entries. I love re-reading my entries, 'cause I end up getting a crush on myself. :D

Anyway. I found this meme, which actually I'm going to copy here so y'all don't have to click through. This is fun, because it's been long enough that I couldn't remember myself what some of these were, and it took me a few minutes to figure them out. I've figured them all out except for #4.




Now, to the meat of the post. This is gacked from [livejournal.com profile] vassilissa. Take the book you are currently reading (or your favorite books) and make up a title for it in the form of "Harry Potter and the _____". And then have your friends guess which book you are talking about.

I went beyond just books. The titles below come from fiction, animation, anime, manga, video games, and this really cool guy.


1. Harry Potter and the TOO MANY BROOMS!! OH NOES!!!
2. Harry Potter and the Giant Sticky Thingy
3. Harry Potter and the Royal Activist
4. Harry Potter and the Father En Flambé
5. Harry Potter and the Exploding Backside
6. Harry Potter and the Sky-High Car Insurance
7. Harry Potter and the Questionable Ladies
8. Harry Potter and the Beanstalk
9. Harry Potter and the 9.8 m/s2
10. Harry Potter and the Mother of Dragons
11. Harry Potter and the Pentomino Avalanche
12. Harry Potter and the Beagle-Loving Serial Killer
13. Harry Potter and the Gay Boys With Impossibly Large Shoulders
14. Harry Potter and the Negative Similes
15. Harry Potter and the Terrifying Space Monkeys
16. Harry Potter and the Little Doctor
17. Harry Potter and the Muppet Sex
18. Harry Potter and the Compression of Time
19. Harry Potter and the Family Secret
20. Harry Potter and the Two Canons Tallis
21. Harry Potter and the Talking Tchotchkes
22. Harry Potter and the Bicentennial Brooder

edit: I'm screening comments so everyone can play. :)

memes get cut )

Okay, geeks: has there ever been an episode of Star Trek that featured pirates? 'Cause the "Update Captain's Log" button, which is supposed to be celebrating Talk Like A Pirate Day, is making me think of Star Trek instead.

And speaking about shows set in space, the Battlestar Galactica Season 2.5 DVDs are released today. w00t! This calls for the Starbuck icon.

Inspire Me!

[livejournal.com profile] narniadear linked to these hilarious Star Trek Inspirational Posters.

I laughed. And then I decided that the world needs MORE fake inspirational posters.

So, your mission: make an inspirational poster. Any fandom, any sentiment. Heck, it doesn't even have to be a fandom! Just make an inspirational poster, and post it here.

political meme

Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] legomymalfoy. I didn't quite understand some of the questions--hey, I'm new to this "politics" thing--so I just picked the middle radio button if I wasn't sure what it was asking. Hence these results might be a bit off.

memes always get cut )

This reminds me--I need to get back to my reading of Politics for Dummies.

Gacking this from [livejournal.com profile] hillarygayle because it's FUN!

Have a picture of yourself online somewhere? Post it here! And no, icons do not count. It'd be fun to see what you all look like.

My Personal Dna Report


I really liked the controls in this test. They're intuitive sliders that offer flexibility in answering. They seem to work well, too--I'd say the results are fairly accurate.

oh sure, i'll play!

The letter meme thingy sounds like fun. Except the problem is that most of my canons are so dear to me exactly as they are that I don't want anything outside canon to interfere with it. Woe.

Okay. Maybe a few?

  1. Artemis Fowl, Artemis Fowl
  2. Meg Murry, A Wrinkle in Time
  3. Shuichi, Gravitation. Because this would be ubercute.
  4. Vash the Stampede, Trigun
  5. John Crichton, Farscape
  6. Stephanie Plum
  7. Melaka Fray, Fray (because I was just rereading this).
  8. Tyrion Lannister, A Song of Ice and Fire (I HAVE NOT READ A FEAST FOR CROWS YET, SO NO SPOILERS!)
  9. Any of the Fruits Basket gang (I do not read scans, so only up to issue 12 of the US released manga, please)
  10. Your favorite character. Except I kindly ask for no one from Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, or Buffy, because those are the canons that I'm really digging at the moment, and so Must Remain Pure.

OMG A MEME!!!

Why am I excited about this meme when I normally hate them? Because my friend [livejournal.com profile] mackillian (who is teh awesome) MADE this one.

OMG ANONYMEME QUIZ!!! )

And the REALLY funny thing? She's never participated in an anonymeme--she's only heard me talking about them. And yet, she got all the funny bits. <3!!!

haha, this could be fun!

Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] portkey:

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, (even if we don't speak often) please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and me. It can be anything you want – good or bad – BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE. When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people DON'T ACTUALLY remember about you.

Here's the one I left for him. :D

So, hit me! Be crazy!

In the meantime, I have more Cylons to battle. So I'm off to do that. But I'll be checking this post often. Oh yes I shall.

Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!

Just saw this at [livejournal.com profile] dorrie6's journal.

Firefly meme
When you see this on your flist, quote Firefly.


Not sure this actually made it into the show. It's from the shooting script for "Serenity" (the episode, not the movie).


ZOE
What does it say under 'bloodbath'?

Simon turns off the book, seeing Zoe in his doorway.

SIMON
I'm was just trying to --

ZOE
We're not in there. The book, I
mean. We're not generals or
diplomats, we didn't turn the tide of
glorious history or whatever that
thing is supposed to spew.

SIMON
You know what they say: History is
programmed by the winners.

ZOE
Nearly half a million people lay dead
on that field at day's end, about a
third of them 'winners'. Can you
imagine the smell? Can you imagine
piling up the bodies of soldiers --
of friends -- to build a wall 'cause
you got no cover? Blood just kept
pouring out of them, you'd slip in it
half the time, find out bloodbath is
not just a figure of speech.

SIMON
Mal was there with you.

She enters, sits across from him.

ZOE
He was my sergeant. In command of
thirty-odd grunts -- five days in,
there were so many officers dead he
commanded two thousand. Kept us
together, kept us fighting, kept us
sane.

could it actually be MEMAGE?

I did some memes. Like, OMG!

Snaps meme! *bounces*

And this other one. I did this on Friday afternoon, but didn't want to post it because I felt like I had been a bit spammy that day. So you get it now.

1. Go here.
2. Pass it on.
my answers )

And the annoyance continues! I thought for sure my stuff would print over the weekend. But the printer queue is empty, and my stuff cannot be found. So now I have to redo it. >:O! It's not hard to do--just dropping some data into a template and clicking "Run", but still. I HATE REDOING WORK!

That is all for now. More later, probably.
