It's TRUE.

^^^LOLOLOLOLOLOL^^^

I have the first four. Saw the fifth in theaters and not again since. Haven't seen 6, 7, or 8 at all. (Please tell me the Neverending Camping Trip of DOOOOOM is a bit less tedious in the movie than the book? Because...good book, but it took a while to slog through.)

It's a shame, really--if I'd gone to the theaters, I could've seen myself going in cosplay. And Harry Potter's never even been one of my mega fandoms, you know?

Though of course nowadays when I hear the name, I think of Darren singing "I'm Harry freakin' Potter!"

Also I need to reread the series back-to-back, because I never have--I read the first five, then had to wait a while for six to come out in paperback, then had to wait for seven to come out at all. I waited to buy the paperback but I borrowed a copy just a few days after it came out.

I'm packaging a book to send out tomorrow for Bookmooch.

The recipient's name is listed as Dee Lirius.

I can't help but be a bit amused by this.

So, by now I'm sure you've all heard about this:


When I heard about it, I got excited, thinking that with all the fuss about it, it must be pretty witty. But I just watched it and was disappointed. Then again, I was already comparing it to this (not for those easily offended by language):

 


The same concept, done the best. But heck, I'd even take this over "The General":

Bear with me, been a while since I've memed. =) And I can already see that this is going to be heavily Adult-Swim biased, because that's more or less the only (fictional) thing Cody and I can agree on. (We also watch a lot of MythBusters and other non-fictional sorts of TV, and rarely ever watch movies.) Oh, and I'm including books. So nyeah. =P

Fandom Meme 2009

For length, and slight slashiness. )
rena_librarian: (Default)
If you've been tagged or you are reading this, you have the honor of copying all these goofy questions, writing your own response, and tagging other victims. You have to tag me, too. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you - but not in a creepy stalker kind of way.

1. What time did you get up this morning? 10:50. I know because it was before the alarm went off. (Had to be at work at noon. =) )
2. How do you like your steak? Medium-well. Maybe medium if the place looks clean. =)
3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Coraline 3D!
4. What is your favorite TV show? Lost.
5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? I can think of at least three feasible answers to this question, and that's not even narrowing it down to specific cities.
6. What did you have for breakfast? Malt-O-Meal knockoff Frosted Shredded Wheat.
7. What is your favorite cuisine? Italian, I think.
8. What foods do you dislike? ...this list could fill a book, honestly.
9. Favorite Place to Eat? When money is no object, El Chico's. When money is kind of an object, Chili's (Cody and I ate there the night we got engaged).
10. Favorite dressing? I don't really do salad. Or anything mayonnaise-y.
11.What kind of vehicle do you drive? 1990 Chrysler LeBaron convertible. =) That car is almost 20, people.
12. What are your favorite clothes? I have a couple of outfits I love, but I think my favorites are the ones that lend themselves to being worn with an awesome pair of shoes. I get more excited about coordinating an outfit (picking jewelry/makeup/shoes/etc to match) than I do about the clothes themselves, if that makes sense.
13. Where would you visit if you had the chance? Japan.
14. Cup 1/2 empty or 1/2 full? Half full, generally. Unless I wasn't planning on sharing and half is now mysteriously missing...
15. Where would you want to retire? IDK. I have a feeling that Cody is going to insist on being close to our families, if they're all still more or less in one place.
16. Favorite time of day? Twilight, though it has nothing to do with the books.
17. Where were you born? Mountain Home. BRMC to be precise.
18. What is your favorite sport to watch? I *might* tune in for skating during the Winter Olympics. Maybe. That's about it.
19. Who do you think will not tag you back? IDK and IDC. =)
20. Person you expect to tag you back first? See above.
21. Who are you most curious about their responses to this? Eh.
22. Bird watcher? Sometimes, with my client. They have a hummingbird feeder right outside the kitchen window.
23. Are you a morning person or a night person? Oh, definitely a night owl.
24. Do you have any pets? I have a fish. Speaking of which, I need to feed him.
25. Any new and exciting news you'd like to share? Not really. The most exciting thing going on right now is that (if all the trades go through on bookmooch) I'm less than 10 books away from having the whole set of Animorphs books. Wedding planning is surprisingly meh at the moment. (Need to get the DRESS going!!)
26. What did you want to be when you were little? So many answers. The most awesome one was President.
27. What is your best childhood memory? Mom built me an awesome tent when I was five or so. I think we left it up until we moved from that house, that's how awesome it was.
28. Are you a cat or dog person? Cat! Dogs terrify me.
29. Are you married? Legally, but we haven't had the wedding yet. =)
30. Always wear your seat belt? Yeah. The only exception to this would be driving from my apartment to the dumpster/mailbox area at the front of the apartment complex.
31. Been in a car accident? One time when it was raining super hard, I knocked off my side mirror by smacking against a woman stopped in the turning lane. We never were sure if she wasn't over far enough or if I swerved into her lane.
32. Any pet peeves? Stupidity. Poor grammar in particular.
33. Favorite Pizza Toppings? Pepperoni.
34. Favorite Flower? Jonquils (my birthflower), if I have to pick. Anything clean and simple. But flowers are something I appreciate more in pictures than in person.
35. Favorite ice cream? I go through phases, but I do love me some chocolate chip cookie dough. =)
36. Favorite fast food restaurant? Hm. Probably Wendy's, honestly. Sonic if we have the money to get non-soda drinks.
37. How many times did you fail your driver's test? Twice, actually. Took it in Yellville instead of Mountain Home the third time. =)
38. From whom did you get your last email? Offbeat Bride Tribe.
39. Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? It's already maxed out! Thanks, unemployment! =P
40. Do anything spontaneous lately? Huh. Not really. Not anything huge anyway.
41. Like your job? If I had more hours--!!
42. Broccoli? If I have to. It's better when cooked with carrots.
43. What was your favorite vacation? Nova Scotia!
44. Last person you went out to dinner with? Cody, of course. Lol.
45. What are you listening to right now? www.memory by Alan Jackson.
46. What is your favorite color? Purple!!
47. How many tattoos do you have? None. YET. It's kind of like when I wanted to get a second piercing in my ears...I felt kind of deviant for wanting it until I realized just how many people have them.
48. How many are you tagging for this quiz? None. =D
49. What time did you finish this quiz? It's 8:08.
50. Coffee Drinker? Yeah, sometimes I like a little coffee in my sugar and cream. =) 10x better with ice!

...is this not a real product???

I would personally go in for "Classic Musty Smell," but that's because I have a soft spot in my heart for books that come from secondhand shops.

In other news, I'm looking at wedding cakes on the internet. =) Three words: mad hatter cake. Google it.

**previously typed**


Cody, Nico, Liz and I went out for Chinese this afternoon before I had to leave for work. My fortune said "Your fortune is on its way!" I shit you not. I was disappointed, first because my fortune was so crappy, and then because it wasn't a real fortune. Unless of course it means my FINANCIAL fortune is on its way...I might be okay with that. =)

Cody's fortune was "Leaders are readers." Nico grabbed them both from us and switched them. XD

A couple of weeks ago I got one that said "A way out of a financial mess is discovered as if by magic!" And now I have a job...hm. IDK. I was hoping to win the lottery, lol. Not that I'm complaining about getting paid to sit around and read books all night.

My favorite one of all time is taped to my other laptop (which reminds me, I still need to take/post pics of THIS one in all its awesome customized glory--lol as I was typing that one of the nurses was like "OMG, cool!"). It says: "Opportunity is knocking--answer it tomorrow." XD

The best story ever from a fortune cookie, though, has got to be one from the other week. Cody and I were debating over dinner. We were thinking Taco Bell but were hemming and hawing, I asked him if he'd rather have something else and he said yes, but I wouldn't go with him. It came out that what he REALLY wanted was Chinese, so we decided to get him Chinese takeout and me Taco Bell and go home and eat them together. He gave me the fortune cookie, and the fortune was "A lifetime of happiness lies ahead of you." I melted right into the couch. =)


I want to say a bit about my book collection. I've been posting a lot of status updates stating what I'm reading, and those of you who chat books with me, or have given or loaned me a book, or recommended a book to me might be interested to know.

Is long. )
rena_librarian: (Default)
I thought it had been a few days since I checked LJ. It's been over a week. I fail.

So yeah, new job. I think I posted that I got a job? Yes, yes I did. I'm working 8 PM to 8 AM, two days on, one day off (more or less, with the exception of some weekends that were scheduled before I was hired). Indefinitely--until the client passes away. She's terminal, and the family just wants someone at her bedside 24/7. I got to pick my shifts.

So yeah, it's a bit boring. The client (I have to keep everything confidential, of course) sleeps most of my shift, I maybe spend 20 minutes of the 12 hours actually interacting with her. In four shifts I've finished something like eight or nine books. (Bear in mind that a few of them were started already, but still.) I did some sewing that I've put off for around a year. I got permission to take my laptop for the purpose of writing (I asked, since the training materials said not to use a client's internet connection but didn't specify), so Shelly: I'll be working on my chapter Monday. Maybe I'll work on other stuff when it's done. =D I love to read, but I just can't do it 12 hours straight, you know? =) And I think it's possible that my reading speed has slowed a bit, but it's hard to judge--I'm tackling more difficult stuff than the last time I clocked myself, but I also flick my eyes up every time I hear the slightest noise.

Hourly, I'm being paid less than minimum wage since the overnight shift is paid a flat rate, but since I sit on my butt for most of it, I don't really care. With all the hours I'm working (48-60 a week, depending on when the days off land) it works out monetarily. Also, I now have a legitimate reason to be up all night. =D Nope, can't sleep on shift. Possibly with other clients that are still in their homes, but not this one. (This client is my sole assignment until the inevitable happens, unless I decided to pick up a shift somewhere along the road.)

So. Work is okay. Expect the occasional late-night work-related Facebook status update via text message. Oh yes, that reminds me--I can't take phone calls when I'm working, I have to keep my phone on vibrate or silent, but I'm free to text when the client is asleep. Or at any rate no one's going to know I'm texting to bitch about it, lol. So if anyone else is a bored insomniac who likes to text...it may take me a while to check my phone but any break in monotony is good. If you catch me on a night off I'll just text back as much. "Off tonight, sleeping, ttyl." =)

In other news, I LOVE BOOKMOOCH. Better yet, here's my profile. Friend me if you join! =) Or, you know, are already on there. It's an awesome thing if you love to read but don't feel the need to hang on to the books afterward, or if you have otherwise accumulated a pile of books you no longer want sitting around. (Textbooks, too!)

And, a dilemma. I'm going to keep this as brief and simple as possible.

Woot, family drama, sorta... )

I SO WANT THIS BOOK.

IDK if I actually need to read it, lol. I just think it'd be incredibly lulzy to leave it lying around.

(It's probably a child psych book in all honesty. But ROFL!)

ETA: It's actually referring to failing in school.
rena_librarian: (Default)
Knee: Swelling more or less gone, range of motion is like 95% normal, still kind of gets uncomfortable to stay in one position too long, but I can cross my legs again. Have a doctor appointment tomorrow at the free clinic. Grr that I didn't know about it sooner, though. I probably would have gone the day after the bike crash. As it is I could probably hop on and ride around for a short time.

AND I have two interviews tomorrow. =D

And I'm getting rid of Crap I Don't Need/Want on eBay. I'm trying to think of something I could make/ship cheaply/quickly and sell expensively, lol. Jewelry or hats or something. IDK.

Also, bookmooch.com is the most awesome website EVER!!

Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] kiashyel

1. leave me a comment saying, 'interview me'.
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. update your LJ with the answers to the questions. (You must do this, even if it's filtered for my eyes only!)
4. include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. when others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Her questions, and my answers:

1. If you could only listen to one CD for the rest of your life what would it be and why?
I'd have to make a mix CD. I'd just have to. It would have some WWS, two of the songs Cody made for me, and...IDK. I'd probably agonize for days and end up regretting either forgetting or including something. (Of course I could just cop out and say I'd be perfectly fine with one CD because I usually listen to downloaded music on my mp3 player anyway and very rarely handle any kind of physical media. =P) If I had to had to pick out an existing album, it would probably be WWS's self-titled CD. =) There's a little something on there for more or less every mood.

2. What fictional character do you most identify with?
Éowyn from Lord of the Rings--I've thought about this quite a lot, actually. =)

3. Tell me something you would like to accomplish in your life, be it great or small, realistic or improbable.
I'd like to get a novel published.

4. What is your favorite scary movie? Or, what movie scared the piss out of you as a child?
Haha--I was a very wimpy little kid, so we won't even go there. But I really like The Ring--it's more of a mindfuck with very little gore, the way horror ought to be. I won't watch something like Saw or Hostel. (And I was totally just commenting more or less the same thing to [livejournal.com profile] tyrel_roo a little bit ago, lol...)

5. If you could have dinner with any person, living or dead, who would you choose?
Oh. Oh God. I might come up with something different if I thought about it for a while, but the name that immediately leaps into my head is Neil Gaiman. And yes, I think he even beats out Tolkien. Dinner with Tolkien would probably devolve into nitpicking over details or reading a list of questions from everyone I know or (most likely) a heated argument over why he made Frodo sail over the Sea. I have no such gripes with Gaiman. His books always end how they're supposed to. XD


And, gacked from [livejournal.com profile] gamgeefest:

01. What are your nicknames? Pretty much just the sweet nothings Cody calls me and Rena for online. Sometimes Strobel/Strobelite from the people who I worked with at TB.
02. How does your hair look currently? Red, past my shoulders. Needs to be dyed again and the split ends trimmed, but I'm not willing to pay $15 for the latter.
03. What's new in your life right now? Wedding planning. XD
04. How many colours are you wearing now? Three. Blue jeans, brown t-shirt with orange graphic.
05. Are you an introvert or extrovert? Mmm, depends, but I make an effort to be extroverted when the situation allows.
06. What was the last book you read? I just finished K-PAX by Gene Brewer. Currently reading some Animorphs books I got in exchange for the old books of Cody's that we sold. =D
08. Who is your favorite super hero? Batmint. Not a typo.
09. Is there anything that has made you happy these days? Cody!
10. What's your current obsession? ...wedding planning.
11. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? About 30 minutes if I pick out my clothes the night before.
12. What websites do you visit daily? LJ, Go Fug Yourself, Facebook, email. Others but not necessarily every day.
13. Do you write fic? What was the last fic you wrote? Yes, and it was a chapter for D2D.
14. What's the last thing you laughed about? Cody, though I'm not sure what the LAST funny thing was.
15. What's the last song that got stuck in your head? Hmm. Probably Idioteque by Radiohead, it's certainly the first one that leaps to mind because it's gotten stuck in my head like a zillion times recently. "Dammit, Cody, Idioteque is in my head again. I hate you." (It's one of "his" songs.)
16. What's the last movie you saw? Hmm. DVD player is gone and Playstation doesn't like the new (to me) TV, so it's hard to remember, but I think Cody and I watched Labyrinth. My man is in love with David Bowie, but he won't admit it. I'm okay with it. =)
17. Do you buy or download the movies you watch? Download. XD

What This Outfit Says About You



You are a stylish example for all. You are very put together.

You are glamourous and modern. You're the type of person who starts trends.



Besides wearing the right thing, you often say and do the right thing.

You are the perfect mix of wit and poise.



Your high end fashion designer match: Michael Kors



Your must have accessory: A gold watch



Ew, gold. Lol. I DO wear a watch every day, even though I have a hard time reading it (no numbers on the new one) and end up checking my phone for the time. Lol.

Memes gacked from Katchan under the cut. )

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] kitty0_o , even though I only HAVE six icons. Lulz.


I don't know why I even HAVE more than one, because I always use this one, lol. It says "I have come to consider myself...a restless Eowyn...awaiting my Faramir." I made it up and had [livejournal.com profile] thehobbitwaffle make it for me, since I didn't have the resources at the time. And now that I think about it, I should probably drop it entirely, 'cause it's really not true anymore.

Now that's a mouthful, Clive, and no mistake. (His middle name was Staples, if you didn't know. If my middle name was Staples, I would answer to it.)

Hobbity found this for me on the wider interwebs and posted it on DLBE for my use. It was my avatar there for a while (I change it out over there) and has been one of my LJ icons ever since I figured out I could have more than one.

Again...self-explanatory. I don't think this was meant to be an icon, IIRC it was the thumbnail for a t-shirt bearing this design. Lol. (And no, I don't think I'd actually wear the t-shirt. In public.)

Hobbity made a series of these "LiveJournal:" icons, and I requested that she make this one in the same style. I loves it. I suppose technically, now, Facebook would be the thinking person's MySpace. But Facebook wasn't around back then. (And yes, I have this icon displayed ON MY MYSPACE. XD)

This is the first panel of Kimono's Townhouse episode 122. It came out eleven days before Cody and I got together officially. I made the icon in anticipation. ^_^

yeah yeah

So if memes and such don't count, I fail at updating.

Started at Hastings last week. I haven't been getting a lot of hours so I don't know as much as I could. I file away the returned rentals and do a little register--the former is more fun, but that's only because I know what I'm doing. (That and processing buybacks after the manager on duty has rung them up.) If you come in, I can chat for a moment if I/we are not busy, but I'm not allowed to ring you up due to "loss prevention" policies. =(

I got a free book today, and I can get one every week. =D There are restrictions (small paperback, and they have to tear the cover off, but it's just a mass market paperback), but I might fill out my collection of classic lit that way. Yayzors. I got I Am Legend this time--when I first walked by I thought it was based on the movie, but closer inspection revealed that it was actually written by one of my favorite authors, Richard Matheson, and the movie was based on the book. Few people have heard of his books but they know of the movies made from them--I Am Legend, obviously, but also Somewhere In Time, What Dreams May Come, and Stir of Echoes.

Discount is GOOD. Mmmm discount.

Cody might be meeting my parents on Sunday, if his car gets out of the shop this week. (It's supposed to be out Friday, so...yeah, 50/50.) Lol I just checked and totally forgot to mention that he got in a fender-bender like two weeks ago, three on Thursday. His mom is insisting on filing an insurance claim even though it'd be way cheaper in the long run to just fix the damn car. =( (I saw the damage. He needs a rear-end alignment at most. Unfortunately it's not his car.)

Anyway. Cody. Meeting parents. EEP. I don't think they're going to hate him or anything (he's too much of a gentleman), but I'm worried that they're going to be like... "You're wasting your time on that?" Or that my dad is going to be all "SO WHAT ARE YOUR INTENTIONS WITH MY DAUGHTER?" (I have already informed Cody that, if the question comes up, "I want to marry your daughter so she and I can have passionate, steamy sex!" is the wrong answer, lol.) But hopefully they'll see that he makes me happy, and that that's enough.

Thursday will be five months since the first time we ever talked, and last Sunday marked six weeks together. =) Crazy, crazy stuff. Six months ago if you'd asked about my love life I would have given you a load of snark, and now I'm with the most wonderful guy ever. Seriously, it's almost like he was made to order. ^_^

Okay, can't think of anything else. Going to go watch TV. *wave*

What Your Purple Umbrella Says About You



When faced with adversity, you remain together and graceful.

You are very balanced, and it's hard for you to let yourself get too down.



You are brainy and philosophical. It's hard for you to lose your broad perspective on life.

You accept things as they are. You don't try to change anything that can't be changed.



On a rainy day: you should spend the day reading



In that case I have allocated all my rainy days correctly!
