In accordance with her game, [personal profile]Nenya_Kanadka gave me the Letter J.

Something I hate: Jail. Haven't actually been (YAY) and would like to avoid. It seems thoroughly dehumanizing. I would like to see prisons... largely phased out? If possible?

Something I love: Jam. By-which, of course, I mean more generalized canning and preserving, because this is me. But still. Yum. Jam. :-) Also: Jam sessions where we trade melodies and harmonies back and for around a fairly basic set of chord progressions, because that is also awesome.

Somewhere I've been: Jasper, Alberta. At least I *think* I've been to Jasper. In lieu of Banff, 20 years ago, when doing a cross-country trip with my family.

Somewhere I'd like to go: Jyväskylä, Finland. Because lakes. Also Hyel, but I'm pretty sure she's nowhere near the Lakeland.

Someone I know: Jess. She lives up the street from me.

A film I like: Uhhhh... Okay, I admit I'm drawing a blank on this. The movie that comes to mind is "Julie and Julia" because I'm a fiend for cooking, but I haven't actually seen it so I have no idea if it's any good. :-/ Pass?

A book I like: Just Girls by Rachel Gold. It's YA. It's not perfect. Bits of it made me twitch (if appropriation of oppression is a thing, there's maybe some of that going on here? Also why is het sex being treated as this Huge Romantic Deal but dyke sex is... just no big thing?), and the second half is [SPOILER ALERT] about domestic violence in close-knit queer communities, which I had NOT expected and which kind of had my shoulders up around my ears, mostly because of my ex-husband. But I'm still glad this book, with its boatload of queer cis and trans characters, exists and is available.

Anyway. That's that. If you want to play, too, leave me a comment saying as much, and I'll give you a letter to work with. :-)

I’m tired. As in: Still Tired.

Sunday seriously took it out of me and the job-interview did what interviews usually do, which was to just stress me out completely (srsly – ghost and I spent something like three hours just sitting under my duvet chatting and drinking tea while I warmed up and calmed down. It did us both a lot of good – alas for the lack of sex in the scenario, but it was still a huge help).

As such, I am doing a meme. A silly, fluffy, relatively brainless meme that I ganked from Seanchaidh. Behold:

Meme of Great Memeage )

And that was the meme.

Your result for The Viking Age Persona Test...


You scored 16% leadership, 27% spirituality, 7% violence and 51% intelligence!


Skalds are the Norse equivalent to bards, or possibly minstrels. They are the ones responsible for over half of what we now know about Scandinavian culture, royalty and mythology today, for they passed down their lore by word of mouth and song from generation to generation until Snorri Sturlusson of Iceland wrote down the Eddas in the 13th century.

Skalds were gifted poets with quick tongues who flattered kings with their art, and occasionally the kings themselves would be known as skalds (or else!). Skalds were highly respected for their wit and intelligence, and in some folklore, they were said to know of events happening in far off lands as they were happening.

Whee! :-D

Your result for The Social Persona Test (What kind of man/woman are you?)...

The Emo Girl (QLBF)

Quirky Liberal Beta Female

You don't have to dress a certain way to be a emo girl at heart.
You likely have more spunk than The Librarian (QTBF), which is good,
but that attitude that screams "Rescue me" only attracts guys
people for so long. You are interesting and fun, but non-conformism
does not replace self-confidence, a virtue you are in sore need of.

You are more QUIRKY than NORMAL.

You are more LIBERAL than TRADITIONAL.

You are more PASSIVE than DOMINANT.

When picking a date, consider: The Lord of the Misfits (QLAM), The Snowball's
Chance in Hell (QTBM), The Manga Geek (QLBM), That Creepy Guy (NLBM),
The Rarity (QTAF), The Renaissance
Faire Wench (QLAF), The Librarian (QTBF),
or The Emo Girl (QLBF).

And I snicker.
Apparently the Boy Version of this is "The Manga Geek". Fair enough. :-)

Note 1: I've (clearly) been editing this. Fixed the size of the picture so's
as not to totally fuck up everyone's f-list. Also made the results less
heteronormative. Whee!

(This so doesn't qualify as learning HTML, but still. ;-)

Note 2: I am amused to no end that I apparently scored higher than "40% of my
peers" on "Maleness". <*raises eyebrow(s)*>

Note 3: Must hunt up music by Avril Lavignes (former) guitarist. Hee! :-D
What Piercing Are You?

You Are a Nose Piercing
You are stylish and you have an eye for what looks good.

You are up on trends but not trendy. You have your own sense of style.

Overall, you are a very visual person. You appreciate beauty of all kinds.

You are always decorating or designing. You need your surroundings to look good.

Even though you make sure to present yourself well, you are mostly an observer in social situations.

You watch people carefully and get to know them well. And you tend to keep your observations to yourself!

Are You "Truth" or "Dare"

You Are Truth
You are communicative, talkative, and honest to a fault.
You love telling others about yourself, but not as much as you like hearing about them.

You connect easily with strangers. You're very open, and you can find common ground with people.
You love to gossip and tell secrets. Telling all is how you get close to people.

What Flavor Cupcake Are You?

You Are a Chocolate Cupcake
You are deep, richly interesting, and at times overpowering. You have a strong personality.
You are drawn to people who adore you. You love it when your specialness is recognized.

You are like a cupcake because it's hard for people to get enough of you.
You have a mysterious charm that makes you incredibly addicting. People are drawn to your drama.

And, apparently:

Your Vampire Name Is: Queen of the Underworld
I never knew what life was until it ran out in a red gush over my lips, my hands!
