Sue Sylvester, because her one-liners are the crackiest on television. XD

Also Ben from Lost because it was so freaking hard to tell which side he was on at any given moment, and that made him all the scarier.

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of any pairing or character of your choosing. In return, you are challenged to post this in your own journal, regardless of your ability level- or not as you wish.

1. Marco/Jordan for [ profile] rattyjol 
2. Eva for [ profile] lisacharly 
3. Puck/Lauren for [ profile] smiley_face86 
4. Kristie/Li for [ profile] infernalearache 
5. Rachel and Jake for [ profile] natural_blue_26 

Somehow I doubt I'll even get ten. I'm only committing to minifics (think, like, within an LJ comment length) but obviously if your prompt is just SO BRILLIANT it could turn into more. Also, limiting the fandoms to Glee/Animorphs/LotR/Lost, because I DON'T want to have to do research, lol.

Meme ganked from [ profile] rattyjol of awesome Animorphs fic. =D

PS: Shelly...don't prompt my chapter, I'll get to it, I swear!

Cannot decide if Glee covering Friday is awesome or terrifying.

Celbrity Abs Guess Who--someone I care more about this time, but I still had to read the hint.

I'm usually at the far right, or second to far right. =)

(On Glee: why does Charice have an accent when she speaks but not when she sings?)


Old news by now, but YAY for Andy Serkis.

I made cupcakes last Saturday, but I should've made these. And yes, that moment WAS so exciting!

Working on my website, too. No more excuses.

I got to watch the finale with Michele, Dani, and Kia, and we got to debate and banter about it during and after, and this is my interpretation based on all the questions we brought up and logic-ed out. =) (Ie, this is how I tried to explain to my horribly confused mother.) This first bit is paraphrased from a comment I posted elsewhere.

RAWR SPOILERS (plz come & debate with meeee) )

I just kinda wanted to say (having just finished watching the final season premiere) that I've had this icon in my collection for...quite a while. Long enough that I can't remember definitely when I found it:

Which just kinda goes to show that with this series, even your most cracked-out theories could be true.

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. )

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!

I am congested. Stupid Cody.

Gacked from [ profile] gamgeefest.

1. What color is your toothbrush? I think it's blue and white. The fact that it was 89 cents won out over the one that was purple.
2. Name one person who made you smile today: Cody!! ^_^
3. What were you doing at 8 am this morning: Sleeping. Duh.
4. What were you doing 45 minutes ago? Facebook, or email. Something online.
5. What is your favorite candy bar? Hm. Just a plain old Hershey bar, if I have to have a bar. I'm more likely to go for peanut M&Ms.
6. Have you ever been to a strip club? No.
7. What is the last thing you said aloud? I talk to myself all the time, no telling. I was probably swearing at something.

10. Do you like your wallet? Yeah, it has Hello Kitty on it.

12. Have you bought any new clothing items this week? No, that was last week.
13. The last sporting event you watched? The Olympics, and not even all of that.
14. What is your favorite flavor of popcorn? Butter. I don't really like stuff flavored like other stuff--ie, chips flavored like BBQ, jellybeans flavored like's just weird. What was wrong with original flavor?
15. Who is the last person you sent a text message to? Shelly. We were discussing Lost.
17. Do you take vitamins daily? Theoretically, but I forget a lot.
18. Do you go to church every Sunday? No.

24. What sounds are you listening to now? My sniffling, the computer motor, my typing, my gigantic sneeze...
25. Look to your left, what do you see? The calendar and a picture of Josh Holloway. Yay for testing printers. (The pictures of Cody are directly in front of me. ^_^)
26. What color is your watch? After the last one broke, I quit. Half the time I'd whip out my cell phone instead of looking at my watch anyway.
27. What do you think of when you hear Australia? Generally I think of Claire from Lost, lol. Is it just me or was she the ONLY survivor that was actually FROM Australia?
28. What is your birthstone? Aquamarine.
29 Do you go in at a fast food place or just hit the drive thru? Depends. If I'm with people I prefer to go in but if I'm alone I'd rather hit up the drive thru. That way I can bring it home and skip ordering a drink.
30. What is your favorite number? 23.
31. Who's the last person you talked to on the phone? Um...Mom left me a voicemail during Lost, but the last person I actually talked to was Cody.
32. Any plans today? The plan for today was to go to Lions, catch up on Lost, have a little time with Cody, and then watch the finale. So far, so good. =) Also managed to squeeze in an hour or so with Kristy.
33. How many states have you lived in? Two. This one, and six months in Florida. I didn't like it, and now that I think about it, that may be where I developed the distaste for hot weather. (That's pretty much all I remember about it.)
34. Biggest annoyance right now? Congestion.
35. Last song listened to? I think it might've been Robbie Williams' "Rock DJ" but I'm not really sure. Whatever the last thing I played in the car was.
36. Can you say the alphabet backwards? I probably COULD if I really set my mind to it, but it wouldn't be fast.
37. Do you have a maid service clean your house? OH GOD I WISH.
38. Favorite pair of shoes you like to wear all the time? Oh geez, there are like 5 pairs on high rotation. Currently my little black Mary Janes with the mesh insides.

41. Do you love anyone? Several people, mainly Cody.
42. Do any of your friends have children? Well yeah. The parents outnumber the nonparents, especially in the Bible belt.
43. What do you usually do during the day? Well, if I'm not working or doing chores of some sort, I'm probably at the computer.
44. Do you hate anyone that you know right now? Once I get to that point with people, I cut them out of my life. So no.
45. Do you use the word 'hello' daily? ...probably, given Hello Kitty. Lol.
46. What color is your car? Silver.
47. Do you like cats? YES.
48. Are you thinking about someone right now? Yeah.
49. Have you ever been to Six Flags? NO, and my siblings have lived in St. Louis for like TEN YEARS. WTF??
50. How did you get your worst scar? I stabbed the corner of a cabinet door into my cheek and the doctors tried to bandage it when I should have had stitches. I was two or three. They figured I'd grow out of that scar. =(

I'm not going to spoil it, but I spent three hours watching the last few episodes of Lost I needed to be caught up, so I could watch the finale tonight, and it just blew my mind.

Easily the finest since the first.

Okay. Shower. Bed. Right, right. G'night.

Song Chart Memes
more music charts

Oh, oh God. The painful truth!

Though I think we're finally starting to get more questions than answers.

On the other hand, I think my brain isn't quite as good as it was back when the show first started--I don't make connections as well as I used to.
rena_librarian: (Default)
It's been crazy around here. Long story short, I'm rearranging like 75% of my house because Cody and I have gotten a free bed, and once we're married we want the bigger room--currently the office--to be Our Room. =D Not that he's moving in, but we're gonna go ahead and set it up, and I'll sleep in it until the wedding when he can join me. =)

I've got to like...get rid of stuff. Really really. Like half the stuff in the Room of Doom.

Oh, those of you who are using Vista and having problems with it choking on itself--turn off Aero (ie, go into your display settings and make it look like Windows 98). It helps A LOT. After a few hours you won't miss it.

Ahhh, nice. Caught up on the flist. (By which I mean I have a zillion tabs open in Firefox, lol.)

There will be blogthings. Possibly tomorrow. Also Facebook memes.

*yawn* If the Lions ever go to evening meetings, I'm SO there.

Oh, and I have the last two episodes of Lost on my computer, and will be watching them somewhere between Lions and the new ep. =)

You Are Sun

You have a past history of being secretive and deceptive.

You're the type of person who will protect yourself at all costs.

While you can be crafty when you need to, you are usually giving, friendly, and likable.

You truly care for other people, and you are very sensitive.

People tend to underestimate you. You seem like a fragile flower, but you're not.

You are gutsy and clever. You have a way of getting what you want without anyone noticing.

=D She's so badass lately!

Your International Spy Name is Bambi Whisper

Your Code Name: Punchline

You Reside in: St. Petersburg

Why You're a Good Spy: You're a good lover

I went to pay my internet bill online, and was pleased to see a news blurb about Lost on the frontpage.


YAY SHIRTLESS SAWYER! (In the episode discussed, not the photo for the article. The photo is Ben. Bleh.)

I can't wait for Wednesday!!
rena_librarian: (Default)
A) really, you should try to keep me out of any comm where CAPSLOCK! is favored
B) and MSPaint comics
C) even though it's been a while since I spent the evening in such places, I'm shocked I didn't find this sooner:

rena_librarian: (Default)
How many times has someone on your friends list posted about something & you were really confused, but you didn't want to ask because you knew you SHOULD know? How many times have you felt 'guilty' asking a LJ friend a question that should be 'obvious'?

Well, here's your chance.

If you've missed a few things, missed an entry and are confused, ask me anything. Even something EXTREMELY basic, like where I live! I'm not allowed to get even slightly irritated at any of the questions--we've all missed things before. Even if there are things you don't think you've missed, but you're just curious about, go ahead and ask. I'll answer ANY question.

I was on my MySpace homepage and saw this ad:

It then changed to say "MySpace Transmissions presents," then changed to "A concert..." with interviews or some such.

With that shirt? And that hair? At a piano?

I totally thought it was about Drive Shaft. XD 'Tis not, unfortunately.

Your Ice Cream Personality:

You are not a particularly modest person. You're proud of who you are, and you don't care who knows it.

You are incredibly cautious. You rather miss out on something than make a mistake. No one would ever call you wild... but they would call you responsible.

You are a fairly open minded person with a wide range of tastes. You are quite accepting of unusual ideas and people.

You tend to have a one track mind. You prefer not to multitask.

You are a serious and contemplative person. You definitely do your own thing in life.

Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes.

rena_librarian: (Default)
you are lightcyan

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is very low - you have better things to do than jump headfirst into every little project. You make sure your actions are going to really accomplish something before you start because you hate wasting energy making everyone else think you're working.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.
the html color quiz

Huh. The analysis is true enough, but I wanted to be

1. A body of water, smaller than a river, contained within relatively narrow banks.
Depending on my mood--probably a creek, but possibly a brook or stream.
2. What the thing you push around the grocery store is called.
Cart. Shopping cart, if it's not in immediate context (ie, not, "Can I put my purse in the cart?", but like "She was pushing a shopping cart around the city.")
3. A metal container to carry a meal in.
Bento box! Nah, probably a lunchbox. Unless it's mine.
4. The thing that you cook bacon and eggs in.
Frying pan.
5. The piece of furniture that seats three people.
Air mattress. (Haha, kidding, only at Kristy's house the last few weeks.) Couch.
6. The device on the outside of the house that carries rain off the roof.
Gutter. Also where many minds reside.
7. The covered area outside a house where people sit in the evening.
Porch. Possibly deck if it's high off the ground.
8. Carbonated, sweetened, non-alcoholic beverages.
Soda, if I'm not referring to it by the brand name.
9. A flat, round breakfast food served with syrup.
Pancakes. Or waffles, but I think there's only one name for those.
10. A long sandwich designed to be a whole meal in itself.
Ew. SubWay.
11. The piece of clothing worn by men at the beach.
12. Shoes worn for sports.
Tennis shoes (which I actually pronounce as one word, "tenni-shoes." My mother actually referred to them as tennies when I was a kid) or sneakers.
13. Putting a room in order.
Cleaning, organizing.
14. A flying insect that glows in the dark.
Lightning bug or firefly, more often than not the former. Funny, I never noticed that there were two different words for it until just now. Weird.
15. The little insect that curls up into a ball.
16. The children's playground equipment where one kid sits on one side and goes up while the other sits on the other side and goes down.
Seesaw or teeter-totter.
17. How do you eat your pizza?
By hand, generally, unless I'm with someone anal who uses a knife and fork, and I might follow suit. Maybe.
18. What's it called when private citizens put up signs and sell their used stuff?
Yard sale or garage sale, interchangeably. Flea market if they actually open up a shop.
19. What's the evening meal?
20. The thing under a house where the furnace and perhaps a rec room are?
21. What do you call the thing that you can get water out of to drink in public places?
Drinking fountain. Ew. I'd have to be pretty desperate to use one.

1. My username is ______ because ______.
rena_librarian. Well, RenaissanceGrrl was taken (and continues to be taken) by some dominatrix who has a friends-only journal. Grr. I'd had to resort to renaissancegrrl_thelibrarian as my Yahoo! ID and LJ wouldn't take that many letters. I often answer to Rena on forums (Ren and RG and RGrrl aren't my cup of tea) so it just...made sense?

2. My name is _____ because ______.
Sarah, because my parents wanted to give me a Bible name. (After choosing names like Jennifer and Alicia) Suits me well enough, I suppose.

3. My journal is titled ____ because ____.
Until the Stars Are All Alight. It's a Tolkien quote (from the song Pippin sings in the movie) and I liked the reference to the stars. Also it generically refers to things getting better in the future. I suppose I might actually be due for a rename, lol. Things are good, other than the joblessness.

4. My journal subtitle is ____ because ____.
Call me 'cause I'm still awake. Slight paraphrase from Anna Nalick's "Breathe (2 AM)" because it's generally true--I'm very much a night owl.

5. My friends page is called ____ because ____.
Crazy People Who Like Me...which, uh...makes sense? Lol.

6. My default userpic is ____ because ____.
The Éowyn one Hobbity made for me...because I designed it and had it made for me.

- look like - Lindsay Lohan, in the Mean Girls era (ie, RED hair)
- adopt as your long lost sister - Avril Lavigne. Or...Lindsay Lohan? I'm with the Fug Girls, girl could use some stability in her life.
- - Jorge Garcia again. Maybe Hugh Laurie, if only because it would probably be creepy if I dated him.
- move in with - *snerk* ELIJAH. I doooo believe I started a fic like that once... *whistles innocently*
- get his autograph - Anybody I ran across. If I didn't actually want it, there's always Ebay!
- spend a day with - Elijah? Avril Lavigne? What is this, Make A Wish? (Probably Elijah. XD)
- go to a drive in movie with - Elijah. Or Dom.
- bake a cake for - Dang near anybody I liked.

Slept in your bed: Just moi.
Saw you cry: Huh. I can't even think of the last time I--oh snap. Kristy. Sorta. Over Sam.
Made you cry: Sam. But only a little.
Spent the night at your house: Nico.
You went to the movies with: Kristy, Jared, EJ...uh...Raymond was there, I THINK Dena was there, EJ's man whose name escapes me (but I know it starts with a J!), and a friend of theirs.
You went to the mall with: Kristy and Abi!
Yelled at you: Hmm...Nico, probably?
Sent you an e-mail: Uh...Maryanne sent me the Lions newsletter and if I got anything after that it was automated.
You kissed: No one. *sob*

Said "I love you" and meant it?: Not to a guy. Never said it. Wanted to. Would have meant it if I had.
Gotten in a fight w/your dog/cat/bird/fish,etc.: Uh, no.
Been to New York? I saw the Statue of Liberty from a grounded plane, and I think we drove through it once when I was a kid, but not in any kind of meaningful way.
Been to Florida? Lived there for six months. I turned three there.
California? Twice, I think. I was really little. WINCHESTER MANSION FTW!
Hawaii? No, and have no desire to go unless it has something to do with Lost.
Mexico? Yes, actually. DON'T DRINK THE WATER. IT'S ALL TRUE.
China? Nope.
Canada? Three times, if you count Niagara Falls when I was young enough to be in a stroller. Twice otherwise.
Danced naked? Mmm, not really. I get enough of a kick walking around in the process of changing clothes or getting ready for a shower.
Dreamed something really crazy and then it happened the next day: I've had lots of deja vus from dreams, but they take longer than the next day.

Are You Lonely Right Now: After those questions? Yeah.
Ever Afraid You'll Never Get Married: It's crossed my mind more than once.
Do You Want To Get Married: Oh, yes.
Do You Want Kids: Not in the slightest.

ETA: Sorry, the project has been canceled. Or at least postponed for the time being.
