Posts Tagged ‘meme’

Normally I’m not into the whole memes thing, but I was tagged by [info]fandoria for the six things that make me happy meme and this time I’m gonna play! Why?  Because a. I was flattered to be picked…b. I haven’t done this one before (hello, 25 things meme!) and c. it is short and happy 🙂

Here are the rules:

1. Be civilized enough to mention the person who tagged you.
2. Write down six things that make you happy.
3. Post the rules.
4. Tag six others and let them know you did it.
5. Then tell the person when your entry is complete.

On to the things that make me happy.  In no particular order:

1. Reimaginings.  Whether it be songs in remix form, fairy tales retold…I love them all.
2. Friends that will drive states out of their way to hang out for a bit 🙂
3. Every flake brings us closer to Spring = my happy thought
4. Having so many friends RIGHT at the edge of super awesomeness and looking forward to watching them all get what they so deserve!!
5. Acknowledgements
6. Hot coffee and caramel creamer…. *happy sigh*

I tag anyone who wants to do this meme.  No pressure, but it’s nice to have something positive isn’t it?  Let me know if you do it!

The Laws Of 2009.

stolen from

doortoriver

 

1.Will you be looking for a new job?
Nope! I already found one! *huge smile  Just gotta work on finding an agent now!

2.Will you be looking for a new relationship?
I think I’ll be more open to relationships this year.  Last year was kind of chaotic, and I was really bad at time management.  This year I’m hoping to get things more under control so I have time for dating and such.

3.New house?​​
I hope not.  I love where I am now, but who knows where I’ll be next year this time.

4.What will you do differently in 09?
Take some time for myself.  This year was all about work and when it wasn’t, I was all about the book.

5.New Years resolution?​​
Finish another book, whether it be Reapers 2 or something different.

6.What will you not be doing in 09?
Wasting time.

7.Any trips planned?​​
Tentatively. But I always have trips planned. 

8.Wedding plans?​​
HA! Nope.

9.Major thing on your calendar?​​
Nothing set.  I start querying soon, so that’s pretty major, but I don’t have a set date.

10.What can’t you wait for?
QUERYING! (sensing a pattern?)

11.What would you like to see happen differently?​
Less time hermitting away, more time DOING THINGS.

12. What about yourself will you be changing?​​
See above.  There’s so much I want to do, but I tend to be very focused on one thing.  This year it was the book, so I’d like to plan a few summer months without so much pressure on myself!

13. What happened in 08 that you didn’t think would ever happen?​​
I moved into a house! And moving in with a new roommate.  I mean, I knew the duo would end, but I didn’t think it be so soon…but it was for the best.

14.Will you be nicer to the people you care about?​​
I don’t really think this needs to be improved upon? But sure!

15. Will you dress differently this year than you did in 08?
hahaha What’s wrong with being a jeans and t-shirt girl? This is just amusing because Heather was just yelling at me that I have a figure and I need to show it off and go out!

16. Will you start or quit drinking?​​
Neither.

17. Will you better your relationship with your family?​​
I’ll most likely stay the same…we’re all pretty close already.

18. Will you do charity work?​​
Most likely not.  I’d love to, but just don’t have the time right now.

19. Will you go to bars?​
Heh. Doubtful.

20. Will you be nice to people you don’t know?​​
Usually. 😀

21.Do you expect 09 to be a good year for you?
It will be full of unexpected things I’m sure…

22. How much did you change from this time last year till now?
Wow…Thinking about it? Quite a bit.  My living situation changed.  Job.  LIFE.  But I’m much happier for all of them.

23.Do you plan on having a child?​​
Not any time soon.  I have my niece to amuse me 🙂  BEHOLD THE CUTENESS!!!

24. Will you still​ be frien​ds with the same peopl​e you are frien​ds with now?
I certainly hope so.

25. Major lifestyle changes?​​
Nothing I can think of…

26. Will you be moving?​​
Nope. (fingers crossed)

27. What will you make sure doesn’t happen in 09 that happened in 08?
Epically bad dates with people I would never want to have a relationship with…why waste time?

28. What are your New Years Eve plans​?​​
Um, work? Seriously…that’s it.

29. Will you have someone to kiss at midnight?​​
Nope.  Single.

30. One wish for 09?
To get an agent, or write the book that will find me one!

Put your music player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first song is the title.

Against the Law to Talk about the Rocket In the Park

Hey you, hey you, devil’s little sister,
Can’t close my eyes
Goodday sunlight, I’d like to say how truely bright you are.
They want to see me cry,
I’m searching for my god.
I must be brave, come, come what may.

Ring around the roses,
Something takes a part of me.
My shadows, shedding skin and
Slow nights, so long
Send me an angel.

The sky is fallin’
Don’t fret precious, I’m here, step away from the window.
Well you done done me and ya know I felt it.
Hello darkness my old friend
Oh say please do not go.
If you want to know how to fly high,
She is the day that gives me time.

Key

Rock on…

So I just joined facebook if anybody wants to friend me.  I got sent a link for some What Kind of Girl Are You quiz.  I ignored it once, but the invite popped up somewhere else and I was bored so….

You are: The Wildfire
She is Spontaneous, Crude, and Loving. You’ll often times find her dancing by herself near the jukebox/the band/in the middle of an empty field. She enjoys life on a level unappreciated by others. Like a lost AM radio station, she is quite a delight to experience, if even for a small amount in time. Just as wildfire comes, wildfire goes. She’s here one day and gone the next, often leaving without a note. This is the tragic being of one of God’s most beautiful creature. You’ll always remember her for the wind in her hair and the music she sways to.

…….I heart facebook 🙂

So you guys remember that comic I told you about… A Softer World?  I mentioned it in this entry.  And Joey has a livejournal!  (Joey has a livejournal, horton hears a who…nevermind.  Sorry.) It’s untoward …I’m kinda going out on a limb here, but I’m assuming he likes friends.  Anyway, he and Emily are doing a serialized horror story for Holloween!  The first chapter is up and talk about a hook! 

Shamelessly stole a meme from tezmilleroz  Go here and choose Twitter, LiveJournal, WordPress, etc. Then type in your username, and it’ll take your subject headers and give them to cat photos.

Which shouldn’t amuse me as much as it does, but hey-these came out pretty good!  I think the last two are my favorites. 

I found this site last night and omg! A. Totally talented and B.  Most of them are hysterical.  This guy has people send him in song ideas and then he does them… and this isn’t like "guy on a guitar" this is so much more…backbeats, harmonizing and robot pirates!  No, seriously… "Yo ho ho and a bottle of RAM" hahaha

In writing news, I’m working on an epilogue that I’m not sure I’ll need but I want to have incase someone says "Hmmm…ending not so much" I can thrust out the pages of my follow up work triumphantly and proclaim "I’ll save you!" ….or something.  Also, my brain is on overdrive panic mode.  It’s now throwing prequels at me at an alarming rate.  Anything to stop me from sending out Reapers apparently…"NO!" brain screams, "Reapers is book TWO!  Write this other one first!"   "Ha!" says I.  "Reapers characters are more interesting.  Do better, brain!"  problem is, they’re good ideas…and it did always kinda have a book two feel to …. NO!  Ugh, see what lengths I’ll go to to get out of writing a query letter?  (brain is whispering "the prequel/real first book would be an EASY query…easy…so…easy doitdoitdoit)  Yes, I’m willing to write a whole new novel to get out of it.  Yes, I’m serious.  Yes, you should probably send help.

Alright alright…I was going to save this because I had TWO entries already in the last 24 hours, but it’s going viral and I wanna jump on the boat because it was so fun to do…that’s right, zombie meme.

Zombie meme:

You’re being attacked by zombies, presumably in a shopping mall, track housing complex, or post apocalyptic zombie infested London. You have to choose from the three categories. What do you choose”

1. one weapon.
2. one song blasting on the speakers.
3. one famous person to fight alongside you.

Weapon can be real or fictional, you may assume endless ammo if applicable. Person can be real or fictional.

My Choices:

1) Giant refilling vats of skin dissolving acid
2) The End of the World  by Skeeter Davis (I’m a big fan of slow motion off-putting fight music

3) Shirley Manson from Garbage always struck me as pretty f’n badass
