On the twelfth day of Christmas, fayanora sent to me...
Twelve icons drumming
Eleven jokes piping
Ten sportacus a-leaping
Nine gemstones reading
Eight languages a-cuddling
Seven dreams a-drawing
Six ciphers a-writing
Five ba-a-a-ad puns
Four quantum physics
Three nudist beaches
Two ancient anomalies
...and a sarcasm in an unity.
Get your own Twelve Days:


Ten Sportacus a-leaping at least makes sense. :-)

Bold the ones you have and use at least once a year, italicize the ones you have and don't use, strike through the ones you have had but got rid of.

"I wonder how many pasta machines, breadmakers, juicers, blenders, deep fat fryers, egg boilers, melon ballers, sandwich makers, pastry brushes, cheese knives, electric woks, miniature salad spinners, griddle pans, jam funnels, meat thermometers, filleting knives, egg poachers, cake stands, garlic crushers, martini glasses, tea strainers, bamboo steamers, pizza stones, coffee grinders, milk frothers, piping bags, banana stands, fluted pastry wheels, tagine dishes, conical strainers, rice cookers, steam cookers, pressure cookers, slow cookers, spaetzle makers, cookie presses, gravy strainers, double boilers (bains marie), sukiyaki stoves, ice cream makers, and fondue sets languish dustily at the back of the nation's cupboards."

The protagonists of the last three things you read/watched/played are the members of your zombie apocalypse team. How screwed are you?

1. "Draco Malfoy and the Last Year" by carlalute - Draco Malfoy on my anti-zombie team? o_O Well, it *is* a bit of an AU Draco, with Draco switching sides to Harry's side. (Alternate 6th and 7th years.)
2. "Connections" - James Burke would be useful in a zombie apocalypse. He could help us make gunpowder, improvise weapons, help with tactics, etc.
3. "NCIS:LA" Again, useful. Especially since it was a crossover with Hawaii:5-O.

Meeeeeme!

Just copy and paste and put your own answers in. The purpose of this is to get to know your friends better and it's so much fun!


1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? My birth name, Tristan, comes from a knight of the Round Table. Alexander, my birth middle name, comes from Alexander The Great. (My Dad is a history buff.)

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? No idea. Months.

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? Not really. The circular bits tend to get squished, the dots on i's tend to look like apostrophes, and sometimes even I can barely read it.

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Currently, proper ham.

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS? no, maybe someday.

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? If the other person was weird too, probably.

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM? Yes.

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Yes. I never had them out. I had my adenoids out once, though. I think adenoids are like tonsils, but in your nose.

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Never in a million years, even for 12 billion dollars! I'd probably die of fright, or pass out from fear, before I got all the way down.

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? I don't generally have favorites.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Hard to untie shoes that don't have laces.

13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? Raspberry cheesecake ice cream.

14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? Face, usually eyes. My mutant power makes me look at least once so it can judge trustworthiness.

15. RED OR PINK? pink

16. WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? Not enough passion for writing as I used to have.

18. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO COMPLETE THIS LIST? What do I care?

19. WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? Black.

21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? Some music by Michael Longcor.

22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE? Black.

23. FAVORITE SMELL? Jasmine. That scent is practically orgasmic for me.

24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? Brooke.

25. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU KISSED? No idea.

26. FAVORITE SPORTS TO Watch? Women's figure skating.

27. HAIR COLOR? Auburn, leaning towards brown.

28. EYE COLOR? Azul. :-)

29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS? No need. My eyesight is better than most peoples' eyesight. Odd, considering both my parents wear glasses.

30. FAVORITE FOOD? Hummus.

31. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS? Both.

32. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? Not sure. Possibly Hellboy 2.

33. WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING? It's a floral pattern with blues, greens, and white.

34. SUMMER OR WINTER? Winter. Easier to get warm in winter than cool in summer.

35. HUGS OR KISSES? hugs

36. SHOWERS OR BATHS? showers

37. MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND? Who cares?

38. LEAST LIKELY TO RESPOND? Piss off.

44. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME? Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

46 WHERE WERE U BORN? In Kansas.

47. WHOSE ANSWERS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK? *shrug*

48. HOW DID YOU MEET YOUR SPOUSE/SIGNIFICANT OTHER? I don't have one.

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

Meme from [livejournal.com profile] underlankers

This is the list I got:

1) Is there anything you do when writing that helps the creative juices to start flowing, if you know what I mean?

Not sure I know what you mean. But to answer your question, getting thinking about the world I want to write about, and the story, helps. Once I'm majorly brainstorming, it gets easier to write.

2) What is your favorite color?

Pink. Or black. Depends on a number of things.

3) Are there any writers who were influential on your writing style?

Not sure. I take a little bit of stuff from every author I read.

4) If you could change one thing and one thing only in the world, what would it be?

Remove greed from the human condition.

5) If you were to have the chance to invent one thing from your stories on this Earth, what would it be?

There's a technology made by a civilization called The Cooperative that I would love to invent, called a repliporter. It's a teleporter and a Star-Trek sort of replicator (only much faster and more efficient) that converts hyperspace energy into matter/energy. The repliporter also has a built-in scanner that can, in an instant, take such a detailed image of someone or something that you could replicate exact living replicas of living people.

6) Who's the better Star Trek captain, Kirk, Picard, Sisko, or Janeway?

Oh that's a tough question. Each has their own pros and cons. But I think I'll go with Picard, since he's such a skilled diplomat.

7) Is there a favorite type of writing (i.e. short story, novel) that you like above the others?

Probably short stories, since it's easier to finish than a novel. Much more likely to get finished. I have a problem, though, thinking of plots small enough for short stories.

I'm starting a meme:

What's something you would really love to have, that wanting it kind of annoys you?

My answer: I'm a bit annoyed that I would really love a lifetime's supply of Advil Liquigels, a lifetime supply of Gas-X, and a lifetime supply of Tums.

You just walked into a grocery store. You can buy three items. What three items would you buy that would make the cashier look at you funny?

Me: A duck, a hose, and some adult diapers.

From [livejournal.com profile] kengr = Got an interesting memne for you.
Rules:: Write down the names of ten of your original characters. Then you get the questions. Make sure to number them.

Mine: 1. Lyria Spellspinner. 2. Nokwahl Viiahdah. 3. Meriel Tempest. 4. Fiomi Zeni Driomi. 5. Telrenni. 6. Lord Ottoman Lichter/Lady Octavia Lichter.1 7. Jedocas Crysari. 8. Dylan Fuchella. 9. Beverly Holden. 10. Allen Austin Smith.

If you think you might do this meme, MAKE YOUR LIST NOW BEFORE YOU READ THE QUESTIONS. It's like Mad Libs that way. Kinda.

Now for the questions )


questions without my answers )

1 = Lord Ottoman Lichter is a cross-dresser and a time traveler who, in the very first story about him, falls in love with his future self who was, at the time, dressed in women's clothing. When Lichter is in drag, he is Lady Octavia Lichter. The Lord and Lady Lichter continued their romance like a normal couple might, when they discovered time is not quite as linear as they had thought it.

What person or people have you been online friends with longest?

What person or people have you been in-person friends with longest?

What person or people have been friends with you, in general, for the longest?

My answers:

What person or people have you been online friends with longest?

Terry Karrow and Lilla Elteto. I've been friends with them both since my days at Delphi Forums.

What person or people have you been in-person friends with longest?

That would be Brooke ( [livejournal.com profile] kengr ) and Lilla Elteto.

What person or people have been friends with you, in general, for the longest?

Terry Karrow and Lilla Elteto. I have a few Facebook friends from earlier, but those are more like acquaintances, so they don't really count. Justin Reed would have been the answer for this one, if we were still in contact. It was hard keeping in contact with him because of the gap in our vocabularies and the fact it seemed difficult for him to write letters. If I could get back in contact with him... well, he might have a computer with a webcam. And hell, he'd have a phone. So there would be those options. *sigh*

Which My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic pony are you?



Twilight Sparkle
An all-round goodie, you're noble at heart and strict about following morals. Your intellect surpasses the common pony; you have a great eagerness to learn more and fill your mind with knowledge. While you can sometimes be labelled as a "smarty pants", you always keep true to yourself and would much prefer to stay your brilliantly-brainy self than become someone you're not. A lot of people would consider you an excellent role model; not just because of your intelligence, but because you're also so genuine and virtuous.
