Have you seen Translation Party?

You paste in text in English, and it flips it back and forth, Japanese to English, until the translation stabilizes on both sides, or it concludes it's going in circles.

The meme is to paste in the first line of your last ten fics, then post them.

The fun starts here! )

Because [personal profile] the_minx_17 asked for it, I'm going to do it. I think we all sometimes need to remember the positives in our lives, just to keep ourselves balanced.

Stake your claim on the positives. Find five and put 'em in your journal - without a fricking cut. Get your flist to do the same. Because, really, I need to read about the positives today.

And that is a direct quote from Minxie. So here I go...

(1) I have two very bright, very energetic, and very lovable kids who constantly surprise me with their ability to think their way through problems that would stump other adults, let alone kids. They keep me motivated and interested, and challenge me in ways I never expected, but thoroughly enjoy.

(2) I am married to a wonderful man who is as far removed from my dad as it is possible to be. He works hard and comes home to hang out with us, and enjoys it. He has stuck to me through thick and thin and proved to me that love is real and forever, believes in me when I need it most, and shares a love of the ridiculous that is very gratifying. He is most definitely my partner in crime!

(3) I am most fortunate and blessed to say that the woman who bore me is not only my mother, but a very good friend, too. I know a lot of women can't say that, but I can, and I know how lucky I am. She may drive me nuts from time to time, but I can always count on her to listen, and to make me laugh.

(4)There are two women in my life who have become closer to me than sisters. They both know me far too well, and I literally can not get away with anything around either of them. I met one of them when we were both twelve, and I met the other one when I was 42. I don't think my life would be the same without either of them.

(5) My life has its ups and downs, but mostly I am happy, I have a roof over my head, food on the table at regular intervals, a garden I love to work in, and something interesting to do every single day. It's a good life!

Now it's your turn!!

Your result for The OkCupid Kissing Test...

The Real Deal

You are 59% Passionate, 51% Romantic, and 53% Experienced!

Wow, Real Deal. You've got it going on.

When hot young things dream of the perfect kiss, they dream of you. Not only are you both passionate and romantic, you also know what the hell you're doing. You've achieved a rare balance between physical and emotional, and that's reflected in your make-out manner. You're creative, intuitive, and flexible. You can be gentle or aggressive, depending on your partner's preferences and you're usually as romantic as is appropriate for the situation. Your kisses are both sexy and meaningful, and those who get your amazing kisses are unlikely to forget them. This is the part where we tell you who to kiss next. And we'd tell you to stick to other Real Deals, but the truth is that we want them for ourselves.

If you're just looking for hot-and-heavy makeout action, try The Vixen or The Rogue. If you're looking for someone to smooch on the regular, check out The Boyfriend or The Girlfriend (they're a lot like you, but they haven't achieved your level of mastery just yet. Teach them, o wise one.)

1. Take this list and post it into your own LJ, and mark the films you've seen.

2. Add five more films to the end of the list.

3. Count how many Xes you have. If you've seen more than 70 films, you are a ~*~ Film Whore ~*~. Post the score of how many movies you've seen in the subject line.

4. Use a LJ-cut since you've got at least one LJ-friend who doesn't really want to see an ungodly number of films snaking its way down the computer monitor.

Well... I made some interesting choices, didn't I? )

Harry Potter Obsessed

59% Obsessed!

You are obsessed with Harry Potter and you are proud of it. You adore the books, have seen the movies a couple of times (even if you hated them) and own some of the merchendise. Your heart thumps a little louder when you hear the words; magic, Harry, or wizard. You visit a few internet sites regularly, and may have dabbled with fanfiction, however, you do have a life outside of Harry Potter. When your friends laugh at you and your Harry Potter posters you join in the joke, but you secretly wish that you could fly a broomstick.

1. go to the fourth folder on your computer where you store your pictures
2. pick the fourth picture in that folder
3. explain the picture
4. tag four people to do the same ... (except I won't, because my feeling is, if you want to do it, great, if not, just get a laugh out of it!)

Okay, the previous picture was not from my fourth photo folder, but my third.

Put it down to inhaling too much caffeine(and you know why, [personal profile] shocolate, don't you?)

I forget where I found this, mostly because it has survived two different computers melting down, and while the manip survived, the information I usually save with it... didn't. No need to explain why I find this incredibly funny, right? Because... yeah. Rocking into Mordor... TOTALLY!

What Kind of Reader Are You?
Quiz Created on GoToQuiz

*laughs* Well, this was interesting! If I haven't mentioned it before, I am a total bookworm. I am always reading, and it's not always fiction. I will read whatever I can get my hands on. When I was a kid, it was as likely to be an encyclopedia or dictionary as much as fiction. And I learned to speed read as a kid, because I never knew how long I was going to be allowed to read. My mother was as much of a bookworm as I was, and my dad, too, but... my dad could never stand to see someone curled comfortably in a chair reading. He figured if you had time to read, then you had time for chores, so... I would read as fast as I could to get as much of the story in my head to savor when he'd catch me and send me to weed the garden or scrub out the bathtub or wash dishes, etc.

I also learned to climb trees to support my reading habit. Well, I climbed trees anyway, being such a tomboy, but you see, there was this tallow tree that grew up right next to the house, and I soon realized that during the summer, when that tree was full of leaves, if I climbed up there and sat in a particular spot, it was very hard for anyone on the ground to spot me. So whenever I felt the need to read, I would grab whichever book I was reading at the time and an apple, climb up to the roof, curl up in my spot and read for several blissful hours until my mother's or my sister's voices got frantic, and then I'd climb down and come reluctantly back into the house.

It would take a while for me to hear them though, because I'm the type of reader who gets so completely involved in the book that the entire house could fall down around me, and I would never notice... unless maybe a bit of the roof knocked the book out of my hands, and even then, I'm likely to pick the book back up with a grumble of irritation and go right back to reading without ever noticing the destruction around me. Had to work really, really hard not to sink that deep into a book after I had kids, because... well... that's BAD. Especially when they're little!

If you want to make Auntie really happy? Take her to a bookstore or a library and just let her go. You might find her later, sitting on the floor between bookshelves with about fourteen books piled around her, several of them open, as she skims through them trying to decide which ones she has to have right now, and which ones she can put aside and add to her mental list of "Books to Get Later."

Hmmmm... one of these days, I'll get a bookworm icon. Or maybe one that's predominantly an open book with a pair of hands visible on each side, and a tuft of hair showing at the top, with a murmured, "Mmmm-hmmmm... do it later... reading now..." across the bottom.

Wish List Meme

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008 08:55 am
auntbijou: (Default)
Yes, it is all over, so... okay, baaa, baaa, I'm doing it, too!

Step One
- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your IJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your IJ, so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two
- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use—or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free—do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf—to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not — it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

Your result for What Spice Are You Test...

You are Sage!

0% Habanero, 50% Sage, 10% Thyme, 10% Ginger, 10% Garlic, 0% Curry, 0% Cinnamon and 20% Oregano!

Sage is a very classic herb. You tend to use intelligence in making decisions instead of brute force.

You are the type of person that people want to get to know and be friends with. You don't feel as if you have to impress people because you tend to be very self assured.

At a party you would be happy to just sit in the corner and watch people, or perhaps find someone to have an intelligent conversation with.

You prefer to think before you act, as you are rather analytical. You can be both dazzling and graceful. People tend to notice you without you trying to make it happen.

You may not be religious, but you are very spiritual. You desire relationships that last rather then passing ones.

Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...

Simple, Progressive, and Sensual

21 Ukiyo-e, 0 Islamic, 18 Impressionist, -20 Cubist, -25 Abstract and 6 Renaissance!

Ukiyo-e (浮世絵, Ukiyo-e), "pictures of the floating world", is a genre of Japaneseand paintings produced between the 17th and the 20th centuries. it mostly featured landscapes, historic tales, theatre, and pleasure. Ukiyo is a rather impetuous urban culture that has bloomed in popularity. Although the Japanese were more strict and had many prohibitions it did not affect the rising merchant class and therefore became a floating art form that did not bind itself to the normal ideals of society.

People that chose Ukiyo-e art tend to be more simplistic yet elegant. They don't care much about new style but are comfortable in creating their own. They like the idea of living for the moment and enjoy giving and receiving pleasure. They may be more agreeable than other people and do not like to argue. They do not mind following traditions but are not afraid to move forward to experience other ideas in life. They tend to enjoy nature and the outdoors. They do not mind being more adventurous in their sexual experiences. They enjoy being popular and like being noticed. They have their own unique style of dress and of presenting themselves. They may also tend to be more business oriented or at the very least interested in money making adventures. They might make good entrepreneurs. They are progressive and adaptable.
