The Benefit of Reading LJ Archives…

…is that I get to do all the nifty old memes.

It’s a small part of the Ace of Wands from Stephanie Pui-Mun Law’s Shadowscapes Tarot.

Q. What’s your current relationship status?

Q. What exactly are you wearing right now?
Skirt, hoodie, stockings, appropriate undergarments, ballet flats, glasses, ring, watch

Q. What is your current problem?
This frickin’ pit in my back

Q. What do you love most?
I’m bad at favorites.

Q. What makes you most happy?

Q. If you could go back in time, and change something, what would it be?
I’d’ve realized what was on offer was better than what I had, sooner.

Q. If you MUST be an animal for ONE day, what would it be?
A cat, hands down.  But probably a big cat, not a housecat.

Q. Ever have a near death experience?

Q. What’s the name of the song that’s stuck in your head right now?
I have no idea what it’s called, one of those whiny early-00’s things.

Q. Who will cut and paste this first?

My name is Carrie, not Cassie.

Q. Name someone with the same b-day as you:
A bunch of people, none of whom I can bring to mind at the moment.  But I share the Goldfish with Spock and Emma Peel, so I’m good.

Q. Have you ever vandalized someone’s private property?
Not unless I’m forgetting something dumb I did as a kid.

In the sense of “physical conflict that lasted more than one blow,” no, but I’ve hit a few people.  The most recent one was drunk and trying to feel me up.

Frequently; I was in chorus in high school and once or twice have sung at large bardic circles at Pennsic.

The way they move.

Medium chai latte, hot or iced as suits the season.

Q. Tell a secret about yourself.
…if I did that they wouldn’t be secrets anymore.

Q. Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity?
Seems to me it’s happened once or twice, but I’ll be switched if I can remember which celebrity.

Q. Do you still watch kiddy movies or TV shows?
Sometimes, especially the various animated holiday specials.

Q. Did you have braces?

Q. Are you comfortable with your height?
Yes, though I do occasionally realize it might be handy to be taller.

Given up the opportunity to make several hundred dollars to spend time with me.

Q. Do you speak any other languages?
Sadly, no, though I’m learning French again.

Q. What is your favorite smell?
OK, quizmakers of the world, I’m going to say this one more time: I’m bad at favorites.

Q. Have you ever been to a tanning salon?
What the heck for?

Q. What magazines do you read?
Knitting ones, and I have a subscription to Real Simple.

Q. Have you ever ridden in a limo?

Q. Has anyone you were really close with passed away?

Not anymore, and not much even when I did.

I don’t know; probably on the order of 36 hours.

When I was six or seven, after falling into the stairwell for the exterior steps to the basement of our house.  I ended up with five stitched in my chin.


Friday Five

Oldie but Goodie

Grab the book nearest you, turn to page 23, find line 5. Write down what it says, along with this sentence, and post it in your journal.

“The process of character creation can be sped up considerably simply by dropping Merits from the creation process.” —World of Darkness: Mirrors

This is the book I use as a mouse pad, which is why it’s “closest”.

The Doctor.  You have a gift for healing that goes beyond education.  You took an oath to do no harm, even when your patients have tried to kill you.  You are out of place where you are, being used to refined society.  However, if you take that stick out of your arse you should be fine.

The Operative 63%  Huh?

Simon Tam 63%  Makes sense, I guess.  Though I wonder why the one I came up as is listed 3rd.

Zoe Alleyne Washburne 56%  I am nowhere near cool enough to be Zoe…

River Tam 56%  And also?  I can kill you with my brain.  I really want to be able to say that…

Inara Serra 50%  I want to be a geisha because they make more money than street hookers.

Jayne Cobb 44%  Jayne is cool, but I don’t want to be him.

Capt. Mal Reynolds 38%  I am not traumatized enough to be Mal.

Kaylee Frye 38%  Nor am I good enough with machines to be Kaylee
