vilakins: Vila in Hello Kitty style (hello vila)

The British National Trust is aiming to get the UK's 'cotton wool kids' outdoors. Here is their list of the 50 things to do before you are 11¾. Except for #49 which can only apply to today's kids and which I've replaced, this is an instant nostalgia trip for me.

Which ones did Vilakins manage? )

This personality test (gacked from [livejournal.com profile] green_maia), has some problems with asking about two unrelated things in one question but it comes up with a relatively accurate analysis. It got some stuff wrong though. Yes, I like to get the details right but outside of work I'm really not organised at all and rarely make lists. And what does being creative have to do with success in finance (the whole idea of which repels me)? Also although I appreciate beauty, that doesn't translate into enjoying housework. It might force me to do it but that's another matter.

Anyway, people might enjoy seeing what their own results are. It doesn't take that long. The visual display is rather attractive. Almost all my major traits are clustered in one place with an outlying Warm and a wrong Organised.

My results )

OK, it's the photograph yourself meme again (on LJ anyway).

Take a picture of you in your current state, no changing your clothes or quickly putting on makeup. NO PHOTOSHOP. Show your F-List the real you!

Yes, it's another meme. I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] bigdamnxenafan to:

List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.

  1. This meme also said that I had to tag 7 people, and not refuse to. I don't like tagging, and I don't take orders. I'd even think twice about an order to do something I'd otherwise do if asked nicely, though in this case I still wouldn't. Because I don't tag.

  2. I have a physics degree. This is no use to me, and neither is any of my experience.in other fields. I should have left school and learned how to drive forklifts. Forklift drivers can always get work here for some reason.

  3. I loathe slimy food. This means things like jelly and overcooked vegetables and overripe fruit. It makes me gag.

  4. I can't think straight if I can hear a conversation, or a song with lyrics. I have to talk out loud to myself to override the distraction if I'm trying to concentrate on something.

  5. I can raise my big toe independently of my other toes, which means I'd still be able to walk without big toes. Apparently most people can't. (I can also move my head sideways like an oriental dancer, do the Vulcan salute and the Bewitched twitch, and raise one eyebrow. I don't ever think to do the eyebrow thing though.)

  6. My car's number plate is LIBR8R.

  7. I have three cats, all monochromatic: a black-and-white, a silver tabby, and a sepia-coloured Burmese. This was not planned.

Quel surprise. ;-)

You Are An INTP
The Thinker

You are analytical and logical - and on a quest to learn everything you can.
Smart and complex, you always love a new intellectual challenge.
Your biggest pet peeve is people who slow you down with trivial chit chat.
A quiet maverick, you tend to ignore rules and authority whenever you feel like it.

In love, you are an easy person to fall for. But you're not an easy person to stay in love with.
Although you are quite flexible, you often come off as aloof or argumentative.

At work, you are both a logical and creative thinker. You are great at solving problems.
You would make an excellent mathematician, programmer, or professor.

How you see yourself: Creative, fair, and tough-minded

When other people don't get you, they see you as: arrogant, cold, and robotic

And once again, by commenting on a post, I have five more topics. Sorry it took a few days to get round to it. :-P

Comment on this post asking for topics and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

[livejournal.com profile] lizamanynames gave me art, Stark, kitties, Tiggers, and Romans.

I thought I'd do this one since it was less intrusive than most. I copied it from [livejournal.com profile] mraltariel, removing four questions (the usual zodiac one and three which were about the surveyor) and adding one to make it a round 30.

30 questions and answers of varying interest )

Apparently by commenting on [livejournal.com profile] redscharlach's wonderful replies in verse, I let myself in for doing the meme too. And why not, since I have so little to post about otherwise apart from the pleasure of getting more books from the library followed by a lovely lunch of corn fritters and salsa at Nosh. :-P

From [livejournal.com profile] sorsha_khan, a quick survey thingy, basically about gender stereotypes. Because I'm bored and don't want to go to bed because I know I won't be able to sleep.

The survey (your side, my side!) and my results )

From [livejournal.com profile] communicator, a quiz about which Mad Men-era woman I'd be. As for Mad Men, damn, that's a good series. I'm amazed at how much I love something that's portrays such a horribly sexist society.

Result! )



A lot of that, especially the childhood section (those first three: totally), is actually fairly accurate.

I should be drawing my B7 card or fixing my Lynx story to post on my site, but I'm a bit distracted with Jasmin having had her operation today (I'm picking her up shortly) and the new cat (see next post). I have however knitted the outsides (the hardest part) of two teleport bracelets. :-)

Greg comes back tonight, but with a massive cold, so I'not sure when he's going back to work, and can therefore print said unfinished B7 card. So it will be late again this year.

In the meantime, have a Australian survey meme. Hey, it makes a change from all those US high school ones, and a surprising amount applies to here as well.

vilakins: My cats Claudia and Tessa in the same curled-up pose (copycats)

From [livejournal.com profile] communicator, a fun pictorial mosaic meme.

You answer twelve questions about yourself. You enter each answer into Flickr's search engine. You pick a photo from the first three pages of results and put its URL into this rather cool mosaic-maker.

Then you post the resulting mosaic in your blog. (I set mine to a width of 600.)

Meme and my results )



And from [livejournal.com profile] thetisonline and [livejournal.com profile] babel, though I've done other versions before.

WITNESS PROTECTION NAME: (mother’s & father’s middle names): Tirzah Tomas (well, it's alliterative)
NASCAR NAME: (first name of your mother’s father, father’s father): Salman Karl
STAR WARS NAME: (the first 2 letters of your last name, first 4 letters of your first name): Monico (sounds like a small city-state)
DETECTIVE NAME: (favorite color, favorite animal): Turquoise Cat
SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, city where you live): Ruth Auckland
SUPERHERO NAME: (2nd favorite color, favorite alcoholic drink, optionally add “THE” to the beginning): Green Brandy Alexander
FLY NAME: (first 2 letters of first name, last 2 letters of your last name): NiDy
GANGSTA NAME: (favorite ice cream flavor, favorite cookie/biscuit): Maple Toffeepop (bwahahaha!)
ROCK STAR NAME: (current pet’s name, current street name): Claudia College (yeah, like that's going to sell CDs)
PORN NAME: (first pet, street you grew up on): Peter Orlando (and oddly fitting it is)

Because I haven't done one of these things for a while, and the results weren't bad. Though acting is nerdy, and 60 books are a lot for a lifetime? I read a lot more than that in a year.

Well, maybe you aren't this extreme, but you're in league with the crazy scientists/mathematicians of today. Very few people have a talent for math, and science is something that takes a lot of brains as well. Thank whichever God you worship, or don't worship, for you people! Most of us would have died off without your help.

And with our help too, sadly. I thought art would score higher though, but then it's not as important to me as writing.

Me meme

18 Sep 2008 06:20 pm
vilakins: Vila with stars superimposed (me)
A meme, snurched from [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2.

The rules:
Take a picture of yourself right now.
Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair...just take a picture.
Post that picture with NO editing (apart from rotation and resizing).
Post these instructions with your picture.

OK, here you go, As the sun's gone down, I used a flash (and this is about the 15th attempt; I had a hard time even getting my hamster-cheeked face in shot).

Me )

I was tagged for this by [livejournal.com profile] kerravonsen most recently and other people before her, including [livejournal.com profile] zoefruitcake, I think. I'm not going to tag anyone, but if you want to post your own 10 weird habits/things/little known facts, go right ahead and I'll be very interested to read about them.
