Post your picture:

 

Name/Nickname: Name: Tracy Angelina   Nicknames:  Dumpling, George, Reptile/Reppie, Tinhuviel, Tin, Darth Shriek

 

Age/Birthdate/Sign: 47, September 10, 1967, Virgo

 

Myers-Briggs (if you know it):  INFP - The Mediator 

 

How long have you had your LJ: 13 years, 3 months.

 

What does your username mean: It's my Craft name, taken from The Silmarillion, being the nickname Beren gave Lúthien when he first beheld her singing and dancing in the forest.  It's Sindarin for "nightingale".  I added the 'h' to the original spelling of the name (Tinúviel) for numerological purposes.  Six years after my initiation, I found my way onto the Internet in 1998.  When prompted to create an account with AOL, Tinhuviel became my online presence as well.  I came to LiveJournal in 2002 and brought my name along with me.

 

What is your favorite thing about LJ: It's writer-friendly, which I deeply appreciate, but my favourite thing about LJ is the people.  I have forged many lifelong friendships through the site, and I'm very grateful for that.

 

What is your least favorite thing about LJ: Semagic was my lifeline to the site for the majority of the time I've been here.  When I switched to Mac, though, I can no longer use Semagic, nor have I found a comparable client.  As a result, I'm not as plugged in to my friends' page as I used to be, and I have lost quite a few posts to Internet interruption while trying to post a new entry on the site itself. 

 

What is your motivation on Live Journal? It was originally a safety valve where I could go rant instead of picking up a gun and crawling into a tower.  I had an incredibly stressful job at the time I joined, so the medium became my primary outlet.  It also serves as a playground for writing ideas as well as socially charged opinion pieces.

 

Have you ever met anyone on your F List in real life? I have indeed.

 

Do you have a paid subscription? I have a Permanent Account.

 

Where do you live? San Diego, California, United States

 

Do you have an accent? Yes.  A North Carolina accent.

 

Do you have pets? Yes.  Smidgen the cat and Toby the dog.

 

Do you/Did you go to school: Yes.  Graduated high school and have had some college and tech school experience, as well.

 

Do you work: Not anymore.

 

Where/What do you do: I write.

 

Do you have more drama at home or at work: The only drama I have is where I live now.

 

What do you often write about: Vampires, philosophy, scientific theories, religion, social issues, music, and movies.

 

What else should readers know: I love you.

A random fact about the person you like. They adore Bollywood.
Do you prefer to do the asking out, or be asked out? How about neither?

    tinhuviel: (Torquemada)
    Here are the rules - post this list in your journal.

    If I tagged YOU, it's because I want to know more about YOU! (and I mean that, so humour me, won't you? If you see this, consider yourself tagged kapische?)

    1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? No, but my cousin named her little girl Angelina after me.

    2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? I'm crying right now. Jar Jar Binks was just introduced in 'The Phantom Menace.'

    3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? It's not as good as it used to be because I type everything now.

    4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Roast beef or, as it's known in Whoville, roast beast.

    5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS? My four-legged co-habitants are my kids, just as the characters in my short stories and books.

    6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? Oh, why not?

    7. DO YOU USE SARCASM? We've a mutual agreement. I use it and it uses me. Symbiosis, man. All...the...way...

    8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Yes. They bump together like clackers whenever I get sick.

    9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? I'd jump over the bungee cord to get the hell out of there.

    10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Anything resembling Muesli.

    11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? No, I wear Birkenstocks, so they just slide on and off, all groovy-like. Any self-respecting Hippie would follow suit.

    13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? Ben & Jerry's Wavy Gravy. They no longer make it, so the world is a lesser place for that unwise decision.

    14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? Eyes. Always the eyes.

    15. RED OR PINK? Blood red.

    16. WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? My ability to make people cry with just a few well-chosen words.

    17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? Living or dead? This question can't be adequately answered.

    18. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO COMPLETE THIS LIST? It'd be nice, but I know it won't happen.

    19. WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? Black and black.

    21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

    22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE? Crimson

    23. FAVORITE SMELLS? Egyptian Musk and English sheep poop, but not together. And the sheep poop has a very organic aroma. It brings back an incredible deluge of ancestral memories.

    24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? my aunt, Janice.

    25. DO YOU LIKE THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU? Yes, but I'm afraid she's left me behind for greener pastures, as 't'were.

    26. FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH? Martial arts.

    27. HAIR COLOR? Brown.

    28. EYE COLOR? Silver blue.

    29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS? No.

    30. FAVORITE FOOD? Cheese pizza with extra cheese and cheese on the side.

    31. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS? Scary movies. Happy endings are way too unbelievable.

    32. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? Se7en (Kevin Spacey FTW!! \o/ )

    33. WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING? Black with white writing that says "Can't stop writing or my muse will eat me." If you knew my muse, you'd know this is not a joke.

    34. SUMMER OR WINTER? Winter.

    35. HUGS OR KISSES? Get offa me, creepy human animal!

    37. MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND? I'm sure [livejournal.com profile] gunslingaaahhh will have a few choice remarks.

    38. LEAST LIKELY TO RESPOND? Oh, pretty much everyone.

    39. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? I'm rereading Riddley Walker by Russell Hoban so, if my grammar suddenly starts going down the toilet, that's why.

    40. WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? I have a laptop, so I don't have a mouse pad. There are no mice around here who would dare set up housekeeping because the cats would rip off their heads. I do think it'd be nice to see what a mouse's pad-d looks like. I'd rather imagine it'd be a lot like Austin Powers groovy pad-d. Or the Joker's.

    41. WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON TV LAST NIGHT? a 'Law & Order' rerun (BONG BONG)

    42. FAVORITE SOUND(S)? The sound of falling snow at night.

    43. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES? Beatles all the way.

    44. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME? Brighton, England. Although I consider England to be my true home, so this question is rather difficult to answer. If England is my soul home, then the furthest away I've been is San Diego (don't drink their water...)

    45. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT? I do a killer impression of Lieutenant Worf complaining "Sir, I protest! I am not a Merry Man!" And I'm pretty good at rallying the masses for "Causes."

    46 WHERE WERE U BORN? What makes you think I was born? I came into existence in Asheville, North Carolina.

    47. WHOSE ANSWERS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK? I'd be happy with just about anyone saying anything. I love these surveys way too much.

    48. HOW DID YOU MEET YOUR SPOUSE/SIGNIFICANT OTHER? I needed a Shriekback tape converted from PAL to NTSC for the Shriekback site. The man who did it for me became my other half for 7 years. But he has sailed to the West and I'm very happily single now, so there you go.
    tinhuviel: (Torquemada)
    1. What did you do in 2009 that you’d never done before?
    Promoted myself. Just started doing that. It feels...uncomfortable.

    2. Did you keep your New Years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
    I didn't make any last year. My resolution for 2010 is to stop taking surveys!

    3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
    No, thank the Mighties.

    you can read the rest of the hoo-ha here, if'n you dare )

    -Leave me a comment with "SRS BZNS - WHERE'S MY MARGARITA" in the subject line.

    -I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.

    -Update your journal with the answers to the questions.

    -Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.



    I was tagged by the illustrious [livejournal.com profile] gunslingaaahhh


    1. if you could have a drink or dinner anywhere in the world, with any ONE PERSON (alive or dead) where/who and why
      I already have ~ Barry Andrews ~ that's because I like to have intelligent conversation about life, the universe, and everything...and I like to face my fears head on.

    2. on another plane, you're married with 3 children. boys? girls? combination of the 2? what are their names?
      Gabriel Sebastian (because that's my favourite Angel and I like the name Sebastian), Lirit Anastasia (Lirit is Hebrew for lyrical and I find that heartening. I'd want my daughter to be poetic. Anastasia always seemed regal, so that's why I picked it.), and Douglas Everette (Named for Dougie MacLean, my favourite Scots Folk singer, and my father, whose name runs in the family).

    3. something that makes you laugh so hard you cease functioning properly
      Jim Carrey being birthed out of a rhino in Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls
    4. you've just won $3 million in the lotto! what're you gonna do with it?
      Pay off my debts and move to England.

    5. if you could have a ph.d in anything, what would it be and why?
      Quantum Physics. I believe that Quantum Physics is the key the Truth of Everything. It will merge science and religion and give all the answers we could ever dream of have questions for. I'd love to explore that realm and be a Magus of space and time.

    Questions from [livejournal.com profile] thenodrin
    1. If Mel Brooks made History of the World Pt 2 for a summer 2010 release, who would you want to see in it?
    2. Definitely Cloris Leachman and Gene Wilder. Peter MacNicol would be cool too. He's a hell of a comedian. Mel himself of course. Anyone else Mel deemed worthy. I have always and will always trust his judgement.
    3. You are writing your main character's Crowning Moment of Awesome, the thing that the character was created to do and that everything in the main plot pushed toward. What happens next?
    4. I have a start a new book with totally different characters. Or write a book having to do with the character outside the main plot. That's all I'm gonna say about it.
    5. You are out of town for the weekend and have forgotten your cell phone charger. Early Sat morning the battery dies. How do you react?
    6. I'm not really concerned because I don't have a cell phone.
    7. Portrait or landscape?
    8. Depends on the picture, now doesn't it?
    9. What is your favourite Christmas memory from your childhood?
    10. Watching the Rankin/Bass specials on TV.

    IStolen from the very generous [livejournal.com profile] circumspectly, who let go of the survey when I showed her my gun. ;)

    You know how sometimes people on your friendslist post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

    Please copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration. One-Word-Answers seldom help anyone out.

    1. First Name: Tracy

    2. Age: 42.

    3. Location: Duncan, SC, right smack in-between Greenville and Spartanburg (those two cities are on easy to find on the map) in what's called the Upstate. So, if you look at a map, you'd look at the left-hand corner of the the triangle that is South Carolina. There's the Upstate. And that is where I'm currently trapped like rabid weasel in a maze...or something like that.

    4. Occupation: Pre.. Actually, I'm waiting on disability benefits, having a host of health problems that just piled on top of me one after the other that prevents my working. And it drives me crazy because I, despite my issues with the Pit, I actually liked working in and of itself. I miss the independence and the money. Gah!

    5. Partner(s): Don't have one, don't want one. Thankssss...

    6. Kids: Oh, negatory, good buddy! I don't do children. Don't like them, don't want them, don't need them, can't stand them. Yet, somehow, when they're around me, they always like to hang out with me. This is with me telling them to go away and leave me alone. They just laugh and hang around. Evil, they are.

    7. Brothers/Sisters: I am an only child, although I adopted a little brother (kinda sorta ha ha) earlier this year, probably against his will, but some things can't be helped.

    8. Parents: Mother Unit, Terry. Father Unit, Everette (deceased). Adopted mother, Aunt Tudi. Step-mother, Mary. It took a lot of people to raise me, but they say it takes a village, so there you go.

    9. Pets: Cats: 4 - Smidgen (marmalade mackerel tabby stumpy manx), Shmoop (grey tiger-stripe tabby with Darth Maul facial markings. She's constantly talking, so her nickname is Yappy McShmoop), Aloysius (long-hair grey mackerel tabby with a side-ways jaw. It was broken and set wrong because he didn't come home in time enough to get it set properly. He now looks like Pete Puma when you look directly at him as a result. He can eat and function just fine though, so it's okay), Steve (marmalade tiger-stripe tabby. He's shy and not big on small talk...). Dogs: 4 - Chester (Blue and Gold Yorkshire Terrier. Asshole supreme. Registered name is Winchester Napoleon. He lives up to his middle name), Riley (Wire-hair Dachshund. He's completely demented. He bites), Sheba (Cocker/Bassett mix. Aunt Tudi's dog. She's a sweetheart, but dumb as a box of pebbles), Toby (aka Toblerone and Sister Ubiquita of Our Lady of the Fuzzy Knuckles. He was a rescue from Dr. Patch's office. He was left there by his former "companion," who never came to pick him back up. Everyone hated him, so I brought him home. I then found out why everyone hated him. He's insufferable, clingy, obnoxious, aggressive, and basically the physical manifestation of Ren Hoek. Yes, he's a Chihuahua of some sort. He has a green sweater and a wimple. He has doubts).

    10. List the 3-5 biggest things going on in your life:

    1. I'm writing my second novel and now have an editor who's going to start working on my first novel after December.
    2. I'm waiting on DSS's decision on my disability and hoping I don't have to get a lawyer.
    3. I'm working to help wrap up The Joker Blogs. There's only a few episodes left until the Big Reveal!
    4. I'm working on rescuing my BarryAndrews.net domain from Yahoo so I can relaunch it with a different host. Am also aiming to seek out some capable web designers to help me make it fabulous.
    5. I'm trying to compile all my notes in preparation to start the third book in The Vampire Relics as soon as I finish the second one.

    I tried to avoid going back to [livejournal.com profile] filmkitty's survey hell pit, but my OCD wouldn't allow me. So I retrieved the other survey and hauled it back over here. Y'know, I used to love these things but, now that I'm compelled to do them, not so much.


    Hi my name is: You already know it if you know half a tidge about me. If you don't, then go away.

    When I'm nervous: I focus.

    By this time next year: I might be dead.

    Last night: I slept the Sleep of the Dead.


    PART 1: YOU

    Were you a planned baby? Yes, then they thought better of it after I was born.

    Were you the first? Yes, and the last.

    Are your parents still married? Noooo....no no no. No.


    PART 2: YOUR PERSONALITY

    Do you have low self esteem? I have my issues just like everyone else who's honest with themselves.

    Do you get depressed about things easily? It depends on the thing.

    Are you happy right now? I'm irritable right now so, yeah, I'm happy.

    more survey hoo-ha )
    tinhuviel: (Maul)
    The second survey [livejournal.com profile] gunslingaaahhh submitted was for Darth Maul. I haven't written Maul in about 9 years, but I'm very close to my Sithly roots right now, so this shouldn't be too difficult.

    1. Is there someone you know you should hate, but you can't?:
    This is ridiculous. I hate everyone. I hate you.

    2. Do you like someone as more than a friend right now?:
    Filthy rumours abound that the twit Obi-Wan and I are engaged in licentious activity. This is patently untrue and I will gladly strike down the person who has been spreading these lies. Sith do not .... get jiggy..... with Jedi.

    3. What does your 8th text say?
    Sith do not text.

    4. Have you ever lost anybody close to you?:
    I have no one close to me.

    5. Is there anyone you trust even though you should not?
    I trust no one.

    6. Ever given your all to someone who walked away?:
    My master, but this was expected. It is the Sith Way. Just as he walks away, so do I plan on separating his ugly head from his lumpy body.

    7. Relationship or hook-up?
    Sith do not do relationships, so I guess hook-ups are the preferred method of exhausting pent-up....rage.

    8. Few close friends or many acquaintances?:
    Neither.

    9. Ever loved someone that wasn't good for you?
    No. I do not love.

    10. How's your heart lately?
    Like a cold lump of Iridonian granite. Perfect.

    11. The last song you listened to?:
    "Narayan" by The Prodigy, which is an appropriate Sith song.

    12. If you could change your name to anything what would it be?:
    Darth Maul is my name change. It used to be Khameir Sarin. I much prefer my new Sith name.

    13. What do you hate about your school?
    Some days I wonder if the Sith Academy exists only to hone my rage. Then I realise that it actually is.

    14. Would you move to another country to be with the one you love?:
    I do not love anyone, but I would move to another country if it gave me a better chance to slay the one I hate.

    15. Which one of your friends do you think would make a good prostitute?
    Sith do not have friends.

    16. Are you afraid of falling in love?:
    No, because Sith do not fall in love.

    17. Fill in the gap. i love ____
    NOTHING

    18. What are you wearing right now?:
    My Sithly robes.

    19. Right or Left?:
    I am ambidextrous. It's part of the training...

    20. Favorite juice?:
    Pineapple juice...

    21. Have you had the chicken pox?:
    There's no such thing in the Star Wars universe.

    22. Ever been to Mexico?:
    No, but I'm intrigued by Montezuma's Revenge.

    23. Are you a forgiving person?:
    Sith never forget and we never forgive.

    24. Are you talking to someone while doing this?
    No, I am meditating on my next round of practice sessions.

    25. What school plays were you part of in elementary school?:
    I was not.

    26. What do you want to do with your life?
    I was to rise up, strike down my Master, become Sith Master, and exact revenge on all Jedi.

    27. If a bear attacked you, would you know how to defend yourself?
    Yes. I would slay it with my double-ended light saber, then pose over its steaming corpse whilst cackling in triumph. (Posing and Cackling 101)

    28. Do you think it would be more fun to model or to shoot the photographs?:
    I would be more fun to pretend to model, then shoot the photographer.

    29. Are you younger than 21?:
    No.

    30. Do you like winter?:
    It is preferable to Summer. Try wearing Sith Robes on Tatooine

    31. Are you in a relationship?:
    Sith don't do relationships.

    32. Do you like fruit?:
    It is functional for body fortification. I must keep my primary weapon at optimum level.

    33. How clean is your room?:
    It is immaculate.

    34. What are you excited for?
    Revealing myself to the Jedi and finally having revenge.

    35. Do you have feelings for anyone?:
    I feel nothing but disdain and derision for all.

    36. Do you fall for guys/girls easily?
    Sith do not fall for guys/girls....period.
    tinhuviel: (Card Kill You)
    Courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] gunslingaaahhh!

    1. Are you dating the person you text most?
    I don't text and I only date a person once... Once is enough.

    2. When is your birthday?
    Oh, sometime this year. It happens same day and same month of every year. Funny how that works.

    3. What do you want?
    Like I said before, my face on the one dollar bill!


    J is a Cheeky Monkey )
    tinhuviel: (Joker_Glare)
    How quickly can I change gears without the transmission falling out of my creative car? We'll see... I'm gonna write this as Reconciled J, so there may be Date elements to come out in the answers. Fun fun fun!

    [livejournal.com profile] luvthyjoker said...
    Ok so I found this one. And some of the questions made me laugh. Some are crap, but some are good. But hey, can't win em all right?
    I would very much like to see this filled out as The Joker [der].
    You TOTALLY don't have to do this if you read the questions and completely hate it.

    Oh and please forgive the fact that I don't know how to lj cut or anything that involves being lj savvy in a comment, so bare with me.

    Finish this sentence: The last person I kissed is...the chick who sold me my ear buds and Kung Fu kicked the crap out of me once oh so very long ago. I was kissing her goodbye because the police had finally caught up with me and I was heading off to Arkham for a little vacation.

    Would you be surprised if your most recent ex called you tonight? A little bit, seeing as how she's a little ah....dead.

    [livejournal.com profile] miintikwa wanted Cadmus surveyed with some of the ones I've already taken. So I went through them and found a couple. We'll see how it turns out. I feel like I'm losing myself already. J is so much more fun....

    cutid1 )
    tinhuviel: (Joker Well.....shit.)
    I want to fill out a survey, but not as myself. I want to do it as a character that I write. So... Give me a survey and tell me what character you want me to fill it out as. It can be Cadmus, Darth Maul, Joker, Kelat, or any other character I've written before. Why am I doing this? Because I'm bored... So hit me.
    tinhuviel: (Torquemada)
    Because I'm a mature, serious person.

    "Man, I wish I could sleep!" and then I proceeded not to.

    14. What famous person would you like to have dinner with?
    Whoopi Goldberg. I think she and I could be fast friends. Of course, I've been wrong about such things in the past, so I'll just settle for dinner.

    15. Have you ever crashed your vehicle?
    Oh yes. The Fast and the Furious-level crashing.

    16. If you didn't have to work, would you volunteer

    18. What is your favorite cartoon character?
    Ren Hoek

    I don't care who knows what about my movie-watching habits. People who know me know I have a very bad one, though. Habit, that is.

    25. What's your favorite drink?
    Cheerwine

    26. Who[m] from high school would you like to run in to?
    The length of the list depends upon how large a vehicle I'd be given for the task.

    105.5, as that's where my tuner gets a nice signal for Son of iGor to channel through.

    28. Sopranos or Desperate Housewives?
    LOST

    29. Do you like the person who sits directly across from you at work?
    I was directly across from my boss aka The Feudal Mistress, when I still worked. We despised each other with a passion rarely felt in this age of apathy.

I was in the West Country of England brushing my teeth when the ice cream man came tootling by. His music was the theme song from Monty Python's Flying Circus. You get your Nutty Buddies in style in England.

    35. Do you go to church?
    When asked to sing at lay-led services, I attend the local UU; otherwise, I've been a long-time member of the Church of the Poison Mind.

    tinhuviel: (Torquemada)
    I'm about to get down to business but, before I do, I need to feed my odd survey addiction. Seriously, is there a support group I could join or something?

    firstly: if you've been tagged, you must write your answers in your own LJ and replace any question that you dislike with a new, original question.

    secondly: tag eight people. don't refuse to do that. don't tag who tagged you.

    how would you describe your siblings (if you have any)?

    Adopted little brother. Likes to scamper about in disguise. Yeah. Lots of people think he's really cool. They're right.

    have you ever lied to a teacher?

    Not to my knowledge. I try not to lie. Try.

    what kind of book would you describe as a good read?

    thought-provoking, something that follows you for the rest of your life and you're compelled to reread over the course of your life.

    what's your occupation?

    writer and pr ninja

    what stereotype are you?

    I prefer to encourage the persona of angry, hateful, old hag. I was the Fat Kid in Stereotype Land (aka school) and was appropriately beaten down psychologically for the label. It turned me into an angry, hateful, old hag.

    what's your current fandom/obsession/addiction?

    Uhm....Joker?

    what are you listening to right now?

    "Goodbye Stranger" by Supertramp

    what food could you eat every day for weeks and not get sick of?

    Po-tay-toes!

    what websites do you always visit when you go online?

    LiveJournal (always first), Yahoo mail, Twitter (via Tweetdeck, thanks [livejournal.com profile] rancid_rainbow!), The Joker Blogs forums, Facebook, and a variety of news sites.

    I have no idea.

    what was the cutest thing you've seen today?

    Steve running across the front yard on his hind legs, trying to catch a carpenter bee.

    does the weather affect your mood?

    Yes. Summer in SC pisses me off more than I usually am.

    what is your zodiac sign?

    Virgo sun, Libra moon, Sag rising. I have more Sagittarius inclinations than Virgo, I think. At least creatively.

    do you want to learn another language?

    I want to know all languages. I want to know why the Finns and Hungarians share a common root language, yet live so far apart. I want to know where the Basques came from, as their language isn't Indo-European, yet there they are, right there in Spain. I've learnt bits and bobs of Irish Gaelic, Welsh, Russian, Polish, Czech, Yiddish, French, German, Spanish, Sindarin, Vulcan, Klingon and, just recently, Engrish.

    five things you can't live without.

    sleep (okay, I lied ha ha), Teh Intarwebs, books, music, movies, my Tribe.

    if you could meet anyone now, who would you meet?

    Like a famous person? Jeff Lynne. Almost met him, but about four feet prevented my doing so. Foiled again!
    Non-famous, but should be ~ all my homies online whom I have yet to have the pleasure to meet in real life.

    what's something you'd like to say to someone right now?


    I'm writing you in my next story. Your character will meet a painful, violent death. Have a nice day.

    what are you looking forward to?

    What's next.

    say something to the person who tagged you.

    You know I have to fill these things out, you wretched little girl. Mum's angry.

    Okay, now with the taggities:

    Yoinked from Tish, whose answers were cooler than mine. Damn. I started this thing around 7 this morning. Just finished it. It's not that it was that big, it's just that I've been multi-tasking like a RoboFool all day, so I did it in bits and bobs. If you see this over on Facebook, it's the same thing. I'm putting it over there to torture Tish, because she deserves it.

    Can you fill this out without lying?
    That's the aim.

    Last thing you drank?
    Cheerwine!

    Last store you went to?
    Wal-Mart.

    Where was your default picture taken?
    In my house here in Duncan.

    Last person you rode in a car with under the age of 20?
    My "nephew" Blake.

    Can you play guitar hero?
    Yeah, it was called playing air guitar back in the 80s.

    Name someone that made you laugh today?
    I am not allowed to utter that name.

    A little over a year ago.

    How late did you stay up last night?
    I'm still up!

    You could move somewhere else, would you?
    Canada, England, Maine, anywhere up North, back home to Asheville, NC. Really anywhere that is not SC.
    there's much more behind the cut, you just wouldn't beLIEVE it! )
    tinhuviel: (Clockwork Orange Happy Face)
    I never thought I'd get such a reaction to that survey I posted last night. I'll fill the thing out for each one of you who did it for me if you'll just link me to it here in the comments. I'm woefully behind in my F-list, what with writing on The Blood Crown and doing a project for Barry Andrews (which is almost finished), so it'd be easier if you just point me in the right direction instead of my trying to find it and not, thus hurting feelings. K? K. Merci beaucoup.

    Why? Because my writer's bone got sprained in the wee wee hours of the morn, so it's just not happening today. This survey I lifted from the eternally delightful [livejournal.com profile] shrijani. It's long and I'm pie-eyed tired, so the answers may be bollocks.

    65

    What are you thinking about right now?
    I'm not really. Derrrrr....

    Probably.

    How did you get one of your scars?
    Okay. I did NOT know this was one of the questions when I started the survey. I just saw *survey* and cut and pasted in a Meme Frenzy. But you know what's coming...
    A Scar Story! )

    After 11 surgeries and general insanity, I'm taking a break from studying for school later on this morning and doing a meme tagged for me to do over on Facebook. Yeah yeah, I should do it over there, but I'm a LJ chick. Always have been, always will be. Sue me, suckas!  And I'm not tagging anyone.  If you wanna do it, do it.  If not, your loss, suckas!

    COME ON AND SPILL IT!!

    First off, thanks for all the insurance advice. I could really use it. I'm lost in this muck. So, instead of thinking about it tonight, I'm doing a meme.

    This one is from [livejournal.com profile] booraven and [livejournal.com profile] morriganwind the other two-thirds of the Dastardly Writing Triumvirate (yes, I added something. We're DWT now, pronounced DOOT, á la the Welsh pronunciation of DWT. I'm rambling).

    A) Four places that I go to over and over:  work, work, the dump, and the post office (work is there twice because I have two jobs.  If I still had three jobs, it would have been work, work, work, and the dump.  Kill me.  Please.)

    B) Four people who e-mail me (regularly):  [livejournal.com profile] green_goblin7t, [livejournal.com profile] clumsycake, The Mother Unit, and my betrothed Dwain.

    C) Four of my favorite places to eat:  El Agave, India Palace, Pita House, and The Texas Roadhouse.

    D) Four places I would rather be right now:  Wales, England, Hungary, and New Zealand

    E) Four people I think will respond:   I think everybody did this while I was slaving away at Sally Foster.  If you haven't done it, do it dammit!

    F) Four TV shows I watch:  LOST, Battlestar Galactica, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and Countdown with Keith Olbermann.

    And now I'm going to bed.

    I'm feeling fairly puny because my body is screaming "menstruate!" when is should have started doing so about two weeks ago. I think I'm going through the change. Cronehood can't get here fast enough, as far as I'm concerned. While I ache and fight the urge to kill everyone in my path, I figured I'd do this here meme thing.

    After ponying up $143.93, I was given the keys to the kingdom car so that I could drive victoriously off the Saturn lot. I ran a couple of errands which included going by the pharmacy to pick up a couple of Aunt Tudi's prescriptions and going by the PO. In amongst the junk mail I found a bill, paperwork I need to fill out for my OB/GYN, and a perplexing letter from a physician's billing office in Spartanburg. I say it's perplexing because it mentioned that the mystery physician had tried to bill my insurance to no avail and that, if the insurance didn't take responsibility for the bill by the end of the month, I'd be responsible. But it didn't mention the amount of the bill, the doctor involved, or the date of the visit. It did give a phone number that I'm going to call as soon as I get home from work on Monday. I haven't had insurance in going on 2 years and have paid for all my doctors' visits out of pocket since then. I don't owe anyone anything in that capacity so these people, whoever they are, need to get off my back. I'm a woman on the edge.

    But I'm not going to worry about that right now. I'm gonna lift my chin and force my facial muscles into a smile. My car is still running and is quite roadworthy, thank the Mighties. I can look forward to many worry-free trips to the post office to pick up more perplexing letters from mystery money mongers. Skuh-whee!


    Now, I shall engage in shameless Memery, and it's all thanks to the adorable [livejournal.com profile] jadecat. You should do it, too. C'mon, I know you want to do it. Everybody does it. You do it, I know you do it. I just did it, and I'm ready to do it again.*

    29 questions, 29 answers. Simple as that. )
