One letter, six questions meme
Wednesday 13th April 2016 7:00 pm

[info]lost_spook gave me an E. Which seemed like it should be an easy letter...

Something I hate: Ear (inner). Specifically mine. Due to a case of not working properly. Or in other words, I've spent days trying to think of something I hate beginning with E and will only come up with something better the day after I post this.

Something I love: Earrings. It's not earrings I love, but silly earrings. Especially ones that are a pair, but aren't both the same. Those are my favourites. I have a fish and a hook, a man running and dinosaur, the front and back of a rabbit and various musical notes. They're an excuse to wear something small and fun.

Somewhere I've been: Eastern Europe. Not the whole of it, but enough bits to know I like it. It's pretty and the people are lovely. And mostly it's just really pretty. I'd like to go back and do other bits of it, but I didn't want to put the same answer for both questions.

Somewhere I'd like to go: The Enterprise. The original (NCC-1701) mostly, but any of them will do in a pinch. As long as the inertial dampeners are working so I can't feel we're moving, then I'll be fine.

Someone I know: Emma. Not one specific Emma, there are a lot of Emmas. It was a very common name around the time I was born, so I know quite a few Emmas.

A film I like: Ewan McGregor films. Well, not all of them. For one thing I am behind on my Ewan McGregor film watching, but also because some of the ones he's been in are shite. Looking at his imdb list there's more in there I don't like than do. But there are some I love: Moulin Rouge, Down With Love, all the bits of Star Wars he was in (the only important bits of Star Wars are the bits he was in).

If you want a letter, then ask and ye shall receive.

Counties visited map
Wednesday 18th June 2008 10:37 pm

Much more useful than yesterday's maps, this is one of counties visited, which shows I'm doing very well at the south of England...

(although amusingly, because I can't quite remember where I've been or what county it's in, I've lost some counties since the last time I did this)

I quite liked this meme:

We all have things about our friends that make us slightly envious.

Not in a bad way, but in a 'Wow! I wish I had that person's hair/eyes/money/relationship/toenails/whatever.'

So tell me what about me makes you envy me... then post this in your blog and see what makes me envious of you.

Christmas/Chanukah meme
Wednesday 21st December 2005 7:58 pm

From Tanaqui and Ann:

The Rules: The 1st player of this "game" starts with the topic "Five Holiday Traditions" and people who get tagged need to write a LiveJournal entry about their five holiday traditions as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next five people to be tagged.

Since it doesn't say I'm interpreting 'Holiday' to mean Christmas holidays, and as Chanukah is in the Christmas holidays this year, I'm putting in some Chanukah traditions as well.

1. We always do puzzles in the Christmas holidays, while watching TV. Although we tend to get caught up in them and spend all evening on them, then get up in the morning and do just a bit... When it's late and we're trying to get it finished before we go to bed then dad will do some as well, otherwise it's mainly just me, mum and my sister (there are only so many people you can fit round the coffee table!).

2. The candles have to be coloured, not white. This is absolutely essential. My sister likes it when they dribble down the candlestick, so she has to clean it. For some reason, though, the candles never seem to sit properly, so end up with bits of silver foil round them so they stay up and don't set fire to the house. They also have a tendency not to light properly, so there's much swearing by dad as he tries, vainly, to light them in order.

3. We eat chocolate cakes for tea (about 4pm). Usually it would be chocolate gateaux/black forest gateaux/death by chocolate, although this year me and mum will be having her home-made one free from milk, eggs, wheat and gluten.

4. Me and dad always argue (and by argue I mean a friendly winding each other up) over Ma-oz tsur. This is the song that dad 'sings' after lighting the candles and saying prayers, and I play along. Generally, we argue about who is following who and what speed we're playing. This is not an arguement that's confined to words either, we argue with music.

5. We generally go to bed late and get up late, which leads to meals being later. Often dinner isn't until Coro(nation Street), which mum and dad watch. We have to shout to mum to tell her it's starting when she's in the kitchen dishing up/getting pudding/washing up in the adverts. We all complain that her estimate of when dinner will be ready is half an hour out.

And an extra one, 6. Christmas Day is a really good day for getting work done, and traditionally a day when we're all doing our separate things and pretty much don't speak to each other all day. This is because there is nothing open, everyone we know is busy falling out with their families and there is bugger all on - although this last one seems to be changing. We used to go to my grandmothers on Boxing Day for dinner, which was when all the stuff was on TV. This has swapped round since we stopped going.

All sorts of stuff
Saturday 16th July 2005 9:11 pm

First a link: Word Perhect - it's a word processor along the lines of Windows RG.

The week started off so well, then I accidentally ate some bread with milk in at the Rotaract barbecue, so spent the rest of the week trying to catch up on my sleep. And reading the last Doctor and Ace BBC book. Pity the ending was so crap.

Today was our tinshake, so I got to sit in a nice garden for five hours and spend one hour standing in the sun in a fairly empty town collecting. I managed to spend most of my time with my left side in the sun (or towards it) so I now have one brown arm and one white one. I will have to spend tomorrow the other way round so I have a matching pair. I also got to count money and we made just under £400 for the local toy library, which is pretty good going. For some reason it seems that any collection in the town gets between £300 and £500 no matter the time of year and the weather.

I enjoyed sitting around with nothing urgent to do so much I made plans to do the same tomorrow. Although finding shade in my landlady's garden is sometimes a bit tricky. After the tinshake I went to Tescos, mainly for some pink grapefruit which they couldn't manage to provide anyway, and got Harry Potter. To read tomorrow (although I read an hours worth this evening in the garden). I did tell myself in advance I wouldn't buy it if it was more than �8 and it wasn't, so I felt vindicated. Sort of. After all, I get the Discworld books in hardback when they come out for �8 or �9.

I have to say that as soon as I started it I felt like I was being talked down to. I've got more used to it now but it does serve to remind that it's a children's book. And I certainly have the children's cover - it's prettier and more colourful. And I certainly didn't re-read the others in preparation - I've read them all twice (or more, I haven't been counting) so I remember them now. I only usually need twice through anything to fix it in my memory for a good few years.

I also discovered Atlantis was on Channel 5 yesterday. It's just as well dad wasn't waiting for it to be on terrestrial to see it - otherwise I'd have been taping it for him because they don't have Sky and no intention of getting it. Sometimes mum asks me if they're missing anything by not being able to get Channel 5 and I can reassure her they're not. That's when I remember to read that column in the TV guide - I got so used to ignoring it before I went to uni I often forget it's there entirely.

Anyway, I enjoyed Atlantis. I had forgotten that Major Sheppard knew nothing about the whole Stargate thing before it started. And I can definitely see a Sheppard/Weir thing going on.

Annmarwalk and Avon did this one:

The One-sentence Meme

If you happen to be working on some new writing project, fanfiction or what have you, post exactly one sentence from each of your current work(s) in progress in your journal. It should probably be your favourite or most intriguing sentence so far, but what you choose is entirely your discretion. Mention the title (and genre) if you like, but don't mention anything else -- this is merely to whet the general appetite for your forthcoming work(s).

So I had a look through my wip folder and found all sorts of things I'd entirely forgotten about, some of which may even be finished one day in the distant future. Don't hold your breath though, some of these were last modified in 2001.

* Unfortunately the ship was running smoothly and Trip temporarily run out of things to take his mind off the situation. (untitled, Enterprise)

* "You don't see me eating pecan pie off just anyone's plate." (untitled, Enterprise)

* "Aeryn can we please have a sensible conversation that doesn't involve talking in riddles and going round in circles." (Lost Without You, Farscape)

* "If you are referring to our destination of Place A then it is still 5 days away. We are only 2 arns from Place B, however." (untitled, Farscape)

* If he had been thinking clearly he might have noticed that not only was Aeryn not breathing, but there was also a bullet wound in her stomach, accompanied by a fair amount of blood distributed between Aeryn, the floor and the guards. (untitled Farscape)

* It has been said that hell is being stuck in a room forever with your friends, and we've certainly proved that. (Trapped, Stargate)

* Elrond made to get up and get some bandages but from the corner of his eye he saw Celebri�an's eyelids flutter and her breath falter. (Abduction, Lord of the Rings)

* He momentarily wondered if he shouldn't have cleaved to Arwen so early, in which case he'd now understand women a little better. (working title Adjustments, Lord of the Rings)

* Elrond did not easily express his emotions and Arwen was glad he had at least felt something. (untitled, Lord of the Rings)

* "I'm trying to seduce you and that's all you can think about?" (untitled, Lord of the Rings)

* There was always one or other of the Northern Rangers injured or dying and Elrond couldn't help worrying that one day one of the dead would be his son. (Choices, Lord of the Rings)

* He could taste the lembas that had been the last meal for both of them; he could smell metal and earth; he could feel the handle of his bow pressing against his palms and digging into the skin. (Last Alliance, Lord of the Rings)

* It was always dark these days and my mother had only found one candle to light the room we were in. (working title Servants 2, Lord of the Rings)

* They had an unspoken agreement not to reveal to anyone else the truth of their marriage but still his actions surprised her. (The Tale of Arathorn and Gilraen, Lord of the Rings)

* He could imagine what would happen if it got round that the king and steward were moonlighting as seamstresses. (untitled, Lord of the Rings)

* The Doctor, on the other hand, had clearly decided Paris was at its best during the French Revolution, when half of the population was trying to kill the other half (untitled, Doctor Who)

* Instead, I am scared of the future - it stretches before me, long and empty without you in it (My Angel, original)

Saz and Nic did this one (which I must reply to):

Why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself? Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she/he wears mismatched socks." I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal.

A meme
Thursday 9th June 2005 7:45 pm

As I was tagged by Sel:

1. Favourite scent: Body Shop's White Musk. My hayfever's bad at the moment so I don't remember what it's like to smell anything other than cigarette smoke.

2. Favourite way to relax: A nice comfy armchair, a good book and nothing but the natural (well, ish) sounds of the outside world (apart from a ticking clock. I like clocks).

3. Favourite film you own: 2001

4. Favourite film you don't already own: I would say Trainspotting on the basis I want it on DVD, but I also want 2001 on DVD - but with a big wide screen TV and surround sound to appreciate it properly.

5. Favourite male film star(s): Ewan McGregor. No-one else comes close.

6. Favourite female film star(s): There's none that particularly stand out. I quite like Nicole Kidman though, for having my name.

7. Favourite book genre: I like a bit of science fiction, a bit of crime and a bit of history. Not necessarily in the same book though.

8. Favourite clothing store: Any that sell clothes that fit me. So that would be none of them then.

9. Favourite non-clothing store: Borders. I much prefer it to Waterstones. Although Blackwells in Oxford comes close for it's textbook type of books.

10. Favourite cartoon character: Bugs Bunny. Because he's a bunny.

11. Favourite CD you own: I actually quite like The OC CDs, they're really good background music.

12. Favourite CD you don't already own: Well, I still don't have the Primary and Secondary Phases on CD (I have them on tape - I didn't have a CD player at the time) and I want the Quandary and Quintessential Phases. Do they count?

13. Pass the torch to five of your LJ friends: Nic, Melli, Neil, Avon, Ian

Meme spam
Friday 14th January 2005 10:16 pm

Some meme spamming - lj cuts for length.

IQ Test



Categories: Meme : , , | Reply to this post | No comments | Link

Sunday 21st November 2004 5:35 pm

That lj meme (most of which I had to go to my userinfo to look up):

My journal is called Angelic Paranoia because I thought it needed a name. I really don't need to tell you where it came from, do I?

My subtitle is Paranoidangel's blog because it is.

My friends page is called friends because I've never felt the need to change the default setting.

My username is paranoidangel42, because the answer's here if you want to know that where the name came from. Someone else got there first with the paranoidangel though, so I added a number on the end, and if I have to explain where that number comes from I will be hitting you on the head with a large spade (if you can provide the spade). And then adding you to my list of people who need to borrow my tapes.

My default userpic is Orlando Bloom because fileg is amazingly talented with these things and I love it. Look out for Ewan McGregor when I feel the need for a change.

My LJ "name" is Nic because it tells people who I am.

I feel like I've done loads this weekend - and it's still the weekend! I successfully managed to find Forbidden Planet on Saturday, and bought myself my Chanukah present from my sister - a Stargate calendar. I've had one before, and I hate repeating myself, but it was that or bunnies, and looking at pictures of bunnies only makes me want one all the more.

I also managed to successfully find the pub that the ZZ9 AGM was in! It usually takes me half an hour to find anywhere in London, from the tube station, but both times were far less than that. I impressed myself. I got a bit unsure of myself finding the way back in the dark, but I did quite well.

The AGM was good. I'm very glad I'm not on the committee though - some of the things that were discussed sound similar to discussions we have at HASA and Rotaract. Not similar in the subject, but just the way the discussions themselves go.

I managed not to buy myself a drink either (except for the first one) or a round. Admittedly, I keep forgetting this whole buying rounds thing - I can cope if it's two people and you buy every other one, any more people and I just get confused. I think the last time I went out and bought a round it was half a one. I don't mean to do it, I really don't, it just works out that way.

Anyway, I stayed much later than I planned, so ended up getting to Guildford at 11.30pm and getting to taxi (to avoid the chavs at the bus station). Not that the taxi driver knew where he was going - why he thought I did, I don't know! I saw an hour of Kill Bill 2 and I liked it (although the punching wood bit was clearly ridiculous - how did he expect her to do it when he just let her not doing properly? She was quite obviously never going to punch a bit of wood like that). And the sword fighting bit was equally silly. But now I really need to see Kill Bill 1 and the whole of Kill Bill 2.

And I stayed up to 3.30am. Although this was because we were watching Sci-Fi porn (had no connection to sci-fi. Or indeed to real life). There's nothing quite like watching bad TV, bad writing, bad acting, in fact bad everything, with a group of people - it makes it so much funnier.

I had a list of things I needed to get done really and I didn't write them down. So now I have no idea what they are - which was sort of the point. I can next Sunday's going to be a getting things done day.

Sunday 4th April 2004 2:36 pm

Woohoo, it's 04/04/04! I realised though, that the American date system gives one more palindromic date than the others. With our system, the date is palindromic if it's the 4th of the 1st-9th months and the 11th. With the American system, the date is palindromic if it's the 4th month and the day is 1st-9th, 11th or 22nd. Bugger.

1: Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4. Write down what it says:
Celestial Home Care Omnibus, better selling than 53 More Things To Do In
That would be the Hitchhiker's radio scripts, beginning of Fit the First

2: Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first?:
Air but if I had a longer arm it would be my bedside table

3: What is the last thing you watched on TV?:
Father Ted

4: WITHOUT LOOKING, guess what the time is:
Er, 2ish? 3ish? It's Sunday afternoon who cares?

5: Now look at the clock, what is the actual time?:

6: With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?:
The heating and my clock ticking

7: When did you last step outside? what were you doing?:
I went to Londis to take back the video my landlady borrowed yesterday (I also wanted to see it so I got to take it back)

8: Before you came to this website, what did you look at?:
I type this in blogger then copy it into livejournal, so if you're reading this via blogger then livejournal (to get the questions), if you're reading this on lj then it was blogger.

9: What are you wearing?:
T-shirt, jeans, fleece

10: Did you dream last night?
Probably but I don't remember what it was

11: When did you last laugh?
Probably during the Time Trax episode I watched over lunch (or possibly AT the Time Trax episode)

12: What is on the walls of the room you are in?:
Posters, photos, old birthday cards, postcards

13: Seen anything weird lately?:
Nothing immediately springs to mind

14: What do you think of this quiz?
It's definitely a quiz

15: What is the last film you saw?:
I'm partway through American Beauty while making CDs. The last one I finished was Young Adam

16: If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first?:
It would probably be food, not because it would be the first thing I'd think of, but because it's the easiest to get hold of (I'd get hungry before I organised buying a house or car for example)

17: Tell me something about you that I don't know:
I don't know, who are you? What is it about me you don't know?

18: If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
Make smoking illegal

19: Do you like to dance?:
Yes, if it's to the right music (I don't do slow dancing though, that's not dancing it's swaying)

20: George Bush: is he a power-crazy nutcase or some one who is finally doing something that has needed to be done for years?:
I don't know about power-crazy but definitely a nutcase

21: Imagine your first second child is a girl, what do you call her?:
I'm not having kids, I'll have enough problems naming the rabbits.
Ok, I'll imagine. I quite like Eleanor, Amy and Alice, although I think Alice might be a bit old

21: Imagine your first second child is a boy, what do you call him?:
I quite like Nick and Daniel but I can't use those. Maybe Tom but only maybe.

22: Would you ever consider living abroad?:
Yes, although that would depend on where and why I was moving there

Monday 15th March 2004 8:16 pm

Three memes from undonne and one that isn't:

1) How old do you feel?

Usually about 19 (not quite willing to admit I'm not a student any more). Although at work when I'm being all responsible, about 25. I think I prefer the 19.

2) What is/was your favorite pet's name and why is/was it so great?

Bunny. He was second-hand, so I didn't name him but he was great because he was a bunny. He also loved everyone and was always pleased to see you (which makes a nice change from cats who are only pleased to see you if they think they are going to get fed.)

3) Reveal/discuss something (the more arbitrary the better) you don't usually mention on your LJ, but is a thing/subject/occurence very dear to you.

See point 2 for the rabbits name.

4) Briefly describe your surroundings.

There is a big pile of stuff on the left of my computer which are my computer accessories (ie drives). I have to move them to use the mouse, which is a pain. The Stargate collage photo I have on my wall is going a funny a colour. That do?

5) If love were a sound, what would it sound like?

Ugh, that's like one of those questions we have at work: 'if this product was to come alive as a person...' I so don't do those.

6) What's something you eat that you assume most people don't?

Kosher sausages. And in this country, Tim Tams.

7) Describe your hands.

Small but I can stretch my fingers out a long way. They're also quite dry at the moment, probably due to the cold weather and my gloves falling apart.

1) What's the most interesting place you've ever visited?

I did like Prague - all the cobbled streets with cars and trams going down them. And the fact that the cars are allowed to turn right at a red light certainly made crossing the road interesting.

2) If you had to go live in a book, which one would it be?

I don't know, I'm not sure I like the life I'd have in them. It certainly wouldn't be anything historical - I don't do camping, I need a bed, running water and electricity.

3) Who is your favorite Beatle?

I saw this question and my first thought was it was about the car! In which case, you can't beat a yellow one. As for the real question though, I don't know.

4) What's the most relaxing thing you can think of to do on a lazy Sunday afternoon, or whenever your lazy afternoons are?


5) If someone left two kittens on your doorstep, what would you name them?

I don't know, I'm crap at thinking up names. It would probably depend on what colour they were.

If you call me...

Nic, you know me in RL
Nick, you can't spell
Paranoidangel, you know me from a forum (TB and HASA are the only ones that immediately spring to mind)
Para, you know me from the TB Forum
PA, you know me from the TB Forum
Paranoid, you've played Quake against me
Nic___, you are either my grandmother or someone who doesn't know I don't answer to that
Nicola, you are either my old doctor or are someone who can't read
Mr {lastname}, you shouldn't be assuming anything
Ms {lastname}, you are someone asking for a punch in the mouth
Miss {lastname}, you are someone official
dear, you're my mother and are being sarcastic

I am 85% British, just like
Mr Bean
Shy to the point of ridicule, you've probably never been out of the UK.

Take the Brit Quiz at
Quiz written by Daz

Bloody good thing too! (that 15% comes from actually knowing things about America)

Take them out, of business class and re-seat them in cattle class

The CD is Subcircus, Are You Receiving, the song is Situation Comedy
(it's been ages since I listened to Subcircus - I don't have many CD inserts since that actually requires spending money

nearest piece of paper that you wrote on:

"Apophis" was here!
Peter Williams, London Excel 2002

Which actually sounds quite accurate.

From the Friday Five:
When was the last time you...

1. ...went to the doctor?
Um, just before Christmas, I think. I do need to go again soon though, annoyingly, as it will hopefully involve drugs and therefore money.

2. ...went to the dentist?
I actually don't remember. I'm trying to pluck up the courage to see if I can register with a local one. But I don't even like going to the hairdressers, never mind the dentist.

3. ...filled your petrol tank?

4. enough sleep?
Last weekend, I think

5. ...backed up your computer?
Also last weekend. Well, I did a drive image of C and E. I need to back up some of my files this weekend onto zip disk.
