The problem with LJ: We all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

Mmm memes.

Hoo boy.

My LJ will be 11 in May. That's over a third of my life, yo.

I had an LJ before LJ had communities.
ginger: (books)
And while I'm yoinking memes...

The BBC believes most people will have read only 6 of the 100 books listed here. Bold those books you've read in their entirety, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish or read an excerpt.

I'm not sure whether it's cheating or just dumb to have both "The Chronicles of Narnia" and "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" on the list, or "The Complete Works of Shakespeare" and "Hamlet" both.

Ok, so meme aside, this is also my 7000th LJ entry evar. Woot! Celebration!
ginger: (shut up)
Another round of the "my favorite movies by these actors" meme I did yesterday -- comment if you want a set :)

1. Christopher Walken - I have actually seen surprisingly few Christopher Walken movies! But I have to pick Catch Me If You Can.
2. Robin Williams - Ooh. The Birdcage*, though Night at The Museum* is a close second.
3. Kevin Spacey - Damn. I don't know if I've ever seen a Kevin Spacey movie I didn't like. (Well, okay, I didn't like Superman Returns -- but that was so totally not his fault.) Umm... The Usual Suspects, I think.
4. Sir Ian McKellen - ICON. *ahem* Damn. Between the X-Men movies* and the LOTR series*, this is difficult, but I think I actually have to pick Stardust*. :)
5. Ben Affleck - Hrm. I love Dogma* and Good Will Hunting* and Armageddon*, but I think my FAVORITE Ben Affleck movie is Shakespeare In Love*.
6. Nicolas Cage - Con Air*. I know it's lame, but I like Nicolas Cage way better in action movies than dramas. :) ...actually, thinking about it, I change my answer. The Sorcerer's Apprentice.
7. John Goodman - Beyond the Sea*, which is one of those Kevin Spacey movies that I liked a lot. :) Bio-pic of Bobby Darin.
8. Steve Buscemi - Armageddon* :) "Get off the nuclear weapon."
9. Steve Martin - Bringing Down The House* -- one of the very very few modern comedies I enjoy, mostly because of Queen Latifah and Eugene Levy.
10. Gary Oldman - Tough one! The Dark Knight*, I think, with The Fifth Element* as a very very very very close second.

1. Holly Hunter - The only one of her movies I've apparently seen is The Incredibles.
2. Kathy Bates - Ooo, The Stand*.
3. Catherine O'Hara - The Nightmare Before Christmas, I guess - it's either that or Home Alone :P
4. Drew Barrymore - Ever After, I think. I mean, the 1987 made-for-TV Babes In Toyland with Keanu Reeves, Richard Mulligan and Pat Morita is tempting, but.... ;)
5. Winona Ryder - Star Trek*, I guess? Recommendations?
6. Christina Ricci - Sleepy Hollow
7. Helena Bonham Carter - Terminator: Salvation*, I think. She keeps ending up in most of the Johnny+Tim combos that I don't like :)
8. Dame Judi Dench - Shakespeare In Love* again, for sure :)
9. Charlize Theron - The Italian Job*
10. Sandra Bullock - Practical Magic*!

I was given:

4. Kevin Smith -- Dogma.
5. Cary Grant -- I don't... think I've ever seen a Cary Grant movie.
6. Jason Statham -- The Italian Job. No, The Expendables. No, The Italian Job. Dammit.

8. James Spader -- Stargate
9. Jeff Bridges -- The Last Unicorn
10. Mel Gibson -- aaaaand another tossup - Maverick or Braveheart. (Oh, I KNOW. Shut up.)

2. Sigourney Weaver -- Aliens. *looks at IMDB* Yep. Aliens.
3. Jodie Foster -- Anna and the King
4. Kelly Preston -- who? *IMDB* ... apparently my options are What A Girl Wants or Battlefield Earth..... wow. Lemme think. :P
5. Katherine Hepburn -- Never seen any of her movies either, but I really liked Cate Blanchett AS Katherine Hepburn in The Aviator - does that count?
6. Natasha Richardson -- Have not seen any of her movies.
7. Angelina Jolie -- Mr and Mrs Smith
8. Ellen Page -- Have I ever seen her in anything beyond Inception?
9. Claire Danes -- Les Miserables
10. Sissy Spacek -- Umm... Carrie, I guess.

So I just tried that Analyze Your Writing Style thing, but I gave up after I got Douglas Adams, James Joyce and Margaret Atwood out of three different journal entries.

ginger: (Default)

1. Elaborate on your default icon:
It's from 2003. Me, leaning on a statue of a globe at the MSU Childrens' Gardens.

2. What's your current relationship status?
Married, just over three years.

3. Ever have a near-death experience?

4. Name an obvious quality you have.

5. What's the name of the song that's stuck in your head right now?
Um ... "Every Step You Take" I think? "Every step you take, every move you make, every vow you stake..." that one.

6. Name a celebrity you would marry:
I wouldn't particularly.

7. Has anyone ever said you look like a celebrity?
Bryce Dallas Howard.

8. Do you wear a watch?
Nope. I keep thinking about it, but I'd never remember to put it on in the morning.

9. Do you have anything pierced?
My left ear, twice, and my bellybutton. I keep toying around with the idea of a third hole in my left ear, but not seriously enough to have done anything about it. (Well, I've had it done twice, but had to let it close both times.)

10. Do you have any tattoos?

11. Do you like pain?
Uh, no?

12. Do you like to shop?
Yep. I find it relaxing.

13. What was the last thing you paid for with cash?
A soda this afternoon.

14. What was the last thing you paid for with your credit card?
If by "credit card" you read "piece of plastic with a visa logo on it," aka "debit card," I bought gas on my way home.

15. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?
Moe from the stupid ambulance company.

16. What is on your desktop background?
All my desktops except for my work one have a big cat theme. My desktop computer has a jaguar, my MBP has snow leopards on both monitors, my netbook has a clouded leopard, and my iPad has a leopard-spotted fur texture background.

17. What is the background on your cell phone?
Plain black. It's a small enough one that a picture made it too busy to read. On my old cell, it was a picture I took of a sleeping jaguar at the Woodland Park Zoo.

18. Do you like redheads?
I'm picky about fake redheads, and most of the ones I've encountered aren't well-suited. Beyond that, hair color is irrelevant to whether I like someone.

19. Do you know any twins?
I do! Though usually I forget he's a twin :)

20. Do you have any weird relatives?
I guess. I have two crazy Uncles Bob?

21. What was the last movie you watched?
Face/Off, according to my movie tracking list.

22. What was the last book you read?
The last one I FINISHED was Dragonquest by Anne McCaffrey. But I also just started Red Dragon by Thomas Harris, plus I have two others in progress.
