Meme gakked from [livejournal.com profile] fanfromfla:

How Old Do You Act?
You are :
You act 8 yrs old!! You are stubborn and childish and sometimes a hand full... especially after eating anything with sugar. You are also not very good at taking care of yourself.
Take the How Old Do You Act? quiz at Quizopolis.com

This is... disheartening.

Also, hi everybody! *waves*

Well, I'm back from the visit with my oldest brother's new family, and I've got some catch-up meme-age to do!

Day 2 (Friday) - Getting to hold my newest nephew for the first time.

Day 3 (Saturday) - I GOT A NEW LAPTOP!!!! I've named her Wilma after my late grandma, and she's so pretty! Yay for new shiny toys!

Day 4 (Sunday) - Going to the markets outside our hotel and getting my tarot cards read; I got some pretty good predictions which gave me some much needed positivity!

Day 5 (Monday) - Actually getting a tiny bit of fic-writing done for the first time in... oh, way too long.

Day 6 (Tuesday) - My four-year-old nephew, Ryan, told me I was pretty. Sometimes it's the smallest things that give you a lift, you know?

Day 7 (Wednesday) - It made me squee a little to see fandom worlds collide in David Hewlett's latest bout of Twittering. He's currently filming a guest spot on The Closer and had this to say about Vern JK Simmons.

dhewlett: Just met J.K. Simmons who was so brilliant in Burn After Reading along with everything else he ever does...I'm officially in fanboy mode!

Oh, he's so adorably dorky :o) Now if he ever starred in anything with Lee... well, I'd probably have a heart attack.

Have sunk into a bit of a depression over the last couple of days, which I feel bad about considering nothing is majorly wrong in my life at the moment - especially compared to the troubles some of my f-list are experiencing right now. I'm sure I'll snap out of it; I just got so used to not feeling like shit for the first time in forever, that being back in this frame of mind is kind of a shock to the system.

Have to admit I'm a bit heart-broken over SGA being cancelled - it's not the reason for my depression but it certainly hasn't helped. This is the first time I've ever lost a show! SGA is only my second fandom after Oz, and I didn't get into Oz until a year after it had already ended, so this is new for me. *sigh*. There are no other shows around that I'm all that interested in, (other than Dexter, but that's doomed too) so I got nothing else to replace the void yet.

Oh, well. *slaps self*. Really must snap out of my funk. Maybe doing [livejournal.com profile] colleendetroit's meme will perk me up...

1. Post these rules.
2. Each tagged person must post 8 things about their self on their journal.
3. At the end, you have to choose and tag 8 people (take if you want)
4. No tag-backs.

1. I have an unhealthy obsession with organisation. Seriously, filing is one of my favourite things to do.

2. I was born on a Tuesday.

3. I collect different editions of my favourite story, 'Peter Pan'.

4. A few years ago, I thought to myself, 'When I'm 24, Lee Tergesen will be 42 - that's pretty nifty. I have a weird feeling that will be the time when I'll meet him.' Guess what happened? *g*.

5. My favourite season is summer. Unlike most people, I'd rather be too hot than too cold.

6. I'm going to be an auntie for the 8th time - Oldest Brother's wife is expecting.

7. When I was a toddler, my hearing was so bad I taught myself to communicate via lip reading. Which amazes me because I can't lip read for shit now.

8. I have a black iPod I named Dahlia.

Not tagging anyone, since Colleen tagged everyone.

Hey, looks like I'll fit in over there! LOL

What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

New York City. You are most definitely from New York City. Not New Jersey, not Connecticut. If you are from Jersey then you can probably get into New York City in 10 minutes or less.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

A meme gacked from... somewhere. I honestly can't remember.

Q. What is your wallpaper on your computer?
At the moment it's some boring blue swirly thing. My monitor's completely stuffed, so there's no point using nice wallpaper.
Q. How many televisions do you have in your house?
Six, but one isn't being used.

Q. Are you right-handed or left-handed?
Left-handed, but there's a few things I do right-handed.
Q. Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
Tonsils, adenoids, a tooth.
Q. What is the last heavy item you lifted?
Probably my nephew.
Q. Have you ever been knocked out?

Q. If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
Q. If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
After years of hating my first name, I actually like it now, so I'll keep it. If I could be bothered going to the effort though, I'd change my last name to Andrews (so I'd technically still have my father's name), because my shitty last name has caused me nothing but grief.
Q. What color do you think looks best on you?
Blue, green, black.
Q. Have you ever swallowed a non-food item?
Not that I recall, no.

Q. Would you kiss a member of the same sex for $100?
Pssh - I've done it for free.
Q. Would you allow one of your little fingers to be cut off for $200,000?
Depends. If I had anaesthetic and couldn't feel it, yes. If it was just chopped off by some random person with no warning, no.
Q. Would you never blog again for $50,000?
Probably couldn't do it - but I'd be soooooo tempted...
Q. Would you pose naked in a magazine for $250,000?
Yeah, but nobody would buy it.
Q. Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000?
Hell, no.
Q. Would you, without fear of punishment, take a human life for $1,000,000?
No. Well, if it was self-defense or defending a loved one, yes, but I'm assuming I wouldn't get paid for that.

Q: What is in your left pocket?
These pants don't have pockets.
Q: Is Napoleon Dynamite actually a good movie?
Well, I think it is.
Q: Do you have hardwood or carpet in your house?
Carpet in the bedrooms, hardwood in the hallway, lino or tiles everywhere else.
Q: Do you sit or stand in the shower?
Stand. How the hell could you shower properly sitting down? Unless you were disabled and had to.
Q: How many pairs of flip flops do you own?
Three. And we call'em thongs.

Q: Last person who texted you?
Amelia (sister)
Q: Last person who called you?
Michelle (sister)
Q: Person you hugged?

Q: Favorite number?
83. Or 2.
Q: Season?
Q: Color?
Blue, green, pink, purple, silver.

Q: Mood?
Q: Listening to?
Family Guy on the TV.
Q: Watching?
Family Guy.
Q: Worrying about?
The Oz fic I'm s'posed to have done by Sunday.

Q: First place you went this morning?
Q: What can you not wait to do?
Go to NYC!!!
Q: Do you smile often?
I guess so.
Q: Are you a friendly person?
Yes, but I'm also quite shy.

The get-to-know my f-list meme:

I want to know 36 things about you. I don't care if we never talk, if you're more of a lurker, or if we already know everything about each other.
