You're Vatican City!

You're pretty sure that you're infallible in all that you do or say, and
it's hard to say whether you're right.  You have a lot of followers, most of whom will
do whatever you say without question, or line up to see you ride around in your spiffy car.
 Religious and reserved, you have some wisdom, but also a bit much contempt for
everyone around you.  You're also fabulously wealthy, no matter what you say to
the contrary.

List ten things that have recently made you happy, then tag ten people to do the same.

In no particular order:

* For the first time in my life I actually managed to get a strike while bowling, and not only that, I also bowled two strikes in that same game! (*iz a terrible bowler*)

*Awesome presents from [ profile] fanfromfla

*My puddy tat, Rodney, aka Rodney the Wonder Cat, Wodney, Rodneykins, Roddles, the Rodster, the Rod-dog, Pretty Kitty, Silly Boy… think I’ll stop there.

*The new season of Stargate: Atlantis!

*Introducing my 3-year-old nephew to the inane joys of arcade games (esp. air hockey) and collecting tickets for crappy, cheap prizes (which, for some reason, I love more than regular toys).

*My awesome parents.

*Youngest Brother, who, after retreating into a stage I call ‘the Terrible Teens’, has lately been making an effort to act like a human being again and has been particularly lovely to me.

*My shitty, one-horse hick town got a discount store – yay for a place where I can buy practically anything at cheap prices, and no longer having to beg a lift to a suburb 20 minutes drive away when I need to buy random shit.

*Max Power, aka Maxie, aka my laptop – source of my daily fandom-related joy.

*CHRISTMAS PREPARATIONS!!! (As far as I’m concerned, Christmas starts in mid-September, straight after my birthday).

pride_of_erin: (Me)
...courtesy of [ profile] thefridayfive

1) This is the 1st of September, what do you want to accomplish by the 31st?

I would like to get some writing done! I have not written in nearly a year! My muses have deserted me, which sucks ass (and not in a positive, life-affirming way), because I’ve left a WIP hanging, and I still owe [ profile] rileyc a fic from the Team Tergesen Auction last year. I freaking suck – I either have no time or energy to write, or I sit down to do it… and I got nothin’ :(

2) What does September make you think about or feel?

My berfday, yo! The 20th. Dude, I’m gonna be 23. Which is halfway to 25. Which is halfway to 30. *sigh*. ‘Tis a slippery slope…

3) September is the ninth month; can you name nine memories so far from this year?

Completely random memories, as they come to me –

January: My first day of my very first real job. Soooo nervous, but it actually went fairly well.
February: Kid at work, splitting his lip open and bleeding all over my white shirt. And I had to catch the train home after that, looking like a survivor from a teen horror movie.
March: Quitting my job. Highly unpleasant business.
April: Erm… no real memories of his month – it’s kind of turned into an unemployed, sleep-til-noon, limbo-type haze.
May: I finally got around to seeing PIN. Wow, it’s really sad that I can remember nothing else from that month. But, dude – Baby!Hewlett!
June: Finally getting another job, but deciding I wasn’t right for it 2 weeks later. Which was when I started casual work! Which I love!
July: Doing so completely awesome at one of my casual teaching gigs, that a bunch of the parents and the director of the centre, raved about me. Dude, the director liked me so much she even offered to give me a lift after work – that never happens!
August: My five-week full-time gig, replacing a teacher holidaying overseas. During which time, I had two very sweet little girls tell me, “You look very beautiful today, Erin.” It’s the little things that get you through the day, you know?
September: Today, my last day of the five-week gig – I’m walking past the playground fence on my way home, and one of the kids yells, “No! Come back!”, before sticking her head through the bars and making kissy faces at me. So I walk back over and give her a kiss. I move away again and she says, “Wait! Cuddles!” So I awkwardly give her a cuddle around the bars, and tell her goodbye. She says goodbye and looks very sad as I walk away. Daaaw – moments like that just melt your heart.

4) What does September have in common with three other months and can you name them?

Oh duh – gee, could it be that it ends in ‘-ber’ like October, November and December? What a dumb question.

5) The first weekend in September signals the end of summer for many even though it doesn’t really end for weeks. When does summer end for you?

Uh, for me, summer ends at the end of March – you know, ‘cos I live in the Southern Hemisphere? On the other hand, September means no more freezing my damn ass off, even though there’s usually a lot of rain to go with the warmer temperatures.

pride_of_erin: (Lee - Killerkitty by Rojimouse)
Questions that [ profile] colleendetroit asked me:

1. Stabler or Beecher...and why?
Beecher. Stabler's a nice guy, but he's pretty boring. Besides, Beecher's hotter. *g*

2. If you could have one superpower for 24 hours, what would it be?
To be invisible, so I could listen in on what people say about me when I'm not there. And so I could perve on guys showering :P

3. Cats or dogs?
CATS!!! Dogs annoy the shit out of me, jumping up on you all the time, barking and demanding constant attention. Cats pretty much just keep to themselves and disappear for hours on end - definitely my kind of pet.

4. Tattoos or piercings?
On me? Piercings. On guys? Tats.

5. If you could choose which inmate you could bunk with in Oz, *besides* Beecher, Keller, O'Reilly or Alvarez, who would it be?
Donald Groves. For a guy who murdered his parents and ate them, he was very lovable. *g*

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Do me! Do Me NOW!", Okay you can say "Interview me" if you want.
2. I will respond by asking you five questions of a very intimate and creepily personal nature. Or not so creepy/personal.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, ask them five questions.

Orderliness results were moderately high which suggests you are, at times, overly organized, reliable, neat, and hard working at the expense of flexibility, efficiency, spontaneity, and fun.

Ten Ways To Know You're Reading A Fic By Me )

Ten Things I Assume People Know About Me )

Ten Things I Have Done (That You Probably Haven't) )

The problem with LJ is we all think we are so close, but really we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.
pride_of_erin: (Pride)
* Can somebody please tell me what the html for bullet points is? These asterisks look shitty. And I can't find it in FAQs.

* Hey, I changed my layout again. It's completely uninteresting. I gotta find a good pic for my background.

* So yeah, I had no idea that Dean Winters once guest-starred on Sex and the City. Pretty Sister rented the 2nd season, and when he came on screen we both let out a long, high-pitched squealy gasp - "That's Ryan!" And the weird thing is, I've seen that ep before and had no idea it was him. And now I get the inside joke of him mentioning Sex and the City on Oz.

* Man, there are some freaks on LJ - how up yourself do you have to be to fill your user info with a billion pics of yourself striking Paris Hilton slut poses, including a colour bar of yourself? And trust me, she was nowhere near cute enough to be that much of a camera whore.

* I'm hungry and Irritating Sister is dominating the kitchen, so I can't get food. Grrr.

* I read that some guy in Sweden donated sperm to a lesbian couple, and forfeited all his parenting rights to the resulting children, but now that the couple's broken up, he's the one who has to pay child support. That is fucked up and wrong.

* Bloody hell, I am BORED. I actually want Bitchy Sister to come home from work, because at least then I'll have someone to have an interesting conversation with.

* I stumbled upon this 101 Reasons For Having Children site - it's complete crock of shit. Even ignoring the fact that it was written by hyper-breeding psycho fundies, it's still bullshit, and I know this because I have 9 siblings and am therefore a pretty good judge of the results of mass-breeding.

10 Things You Should Know About Me )
pride_of_erin: (Ho Down by Doctorevel)
Hello thar my lovelies - I have returned from my sojourn in Self Pity Land. I don't reccommend it, the food's terrible. *g*

Anyhoo, I apologise for my last post - I shouldn't be dumping my crap on you guys, just because I had shiteful day. But I am immensely grateful for all the kindness people gave me - you have no idea how much it helped, so thank you. Cuddles and kisses to you all.

I'm feeling much better - more in control again. I just keep saying to myself, "My fucking life, goddammit, and I shall do whatever I bloody well want with it - criticisms and guilt-tripping be damned."

Now back to the fun stuff in life - since when do unpaid accounts get 100 icon spaces, and why was I not informed?! I rarely go to my manage userpics page, 'cause, yeah, three spaces - what's the bloody point?, but I went to temporarily delete a couple of pics and replace them with Christmas ones, when lo and behold it says Currently uploaded: 3 out of 100. I am like, "Bzuh? ...the fuck?" So I try loading a 4th pic and it works! Cue Erin having a aneurysm from the excitement of finally being able to use all the pretty and funny icons out there ([ profile] rojimouse, my little Photo Shop goddess! I am gonna suck you dry! *g*). Extra iconage is verrah, verrah happy-making - I just hope it's not a fluke result of the icon troubles that have been plaguing LJ recently, so they end up being taken away from me. That would be most uncool.

EDIT: Oh my God, I'm clearly an idiot - I just checked my user info, and apparently I now have six months of a paid account. Which accounts for the extra iconage. Which means some glorious angel has given me this wonderful, wonderful gift and I had no freakin' idea - thank you, mysterious benefactor! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!

Look at my cute Christmas icon, made by the wonderfully talented and genrous [ profile] doctorevel! Inspired by the "Gonna have a ho down", "Who you callin' a ho?" exchange between Lee and Dean on Oz S4 DVD commentary. I <3 it muchly.

And what better way to get back into the LJ spirit than with the '50 things' meme gacked from evelina69 )

pride_of_erin: (Woobie by Rojimouse)
...the fuck? Why are there kids in horribly homemade, last-minute looking costumes wandering down my street? Last time I checked we didn't celebrate Halloween in this country - when the fuck did this start? They weren't here last year. We've got brats triple-ringing our doorbell and demanding lollies - um, we don't have any? In case you hadn't noticed, you're not living in America? Go the fuck home? I don't give a shit if it's 7:30 and still light out - it's also overcast and rainy - go. The fuck. Home.

*Sigh*. But since it is Halloween or Samhain (well actually, for me it's Beltane - I live in Opposites Land! Wooh!) I figured I'd do some Halloweeny memes. (And of course, by 'Opposites Land' I'm talking about the weather - you know how hot snow falls up here? *g*).

Happy Halloween )
pride_of_erin: (Default)
It's kinda sad how I got a little thrill out of seeing my name in the SGA newsletter.

It's also kinda sad that I've spent 3 hours collecting art materials and creating collage supplies for my lessons next week, including digging through our huge recycling bin with a pair of tongs for old magazines that my mother foolishly threw out. The idea of 'Yay, I'm a teacher!' is still very novel - I have a feeling it will wear off pretty damn quick.

You find the wackiest memes when poking around LJ. Gacked from [ profile] xx_kitty_kat_xx.
Google "[Your name] needs" in quotation marks. Copy the first ten results.

Sometimes "Erin needs" was in the middle of a sentence and didn't make sense, so I did the first 10 where "Erin needs" was the beginning of the sentence.

1. Erin needs to wear shirts - You mean I can't go around half-nekkid all the time?

2. Erin needs our matter of fact acknowledgement that her beloved is dying - Lee Tergesen's dying?!! *snerk*.

3. Erin needs what most white girls crave - a cock that measures in the double digits. - Boo yah!!! (This one cracked my shit UP!).

4. Erin needs platelets on a regular basis to thicken her blood. - Don't most people?

5. Erin needs that nurturing, too, since she has gone so long without it. - Yes. Nurture me. I need some lovin'. (See #3).

6. Erin needs someone who cares that she is alive. Hey! Plenty of people care! Right, guys? …Right? *crickets chirping*

7. Erin Needs To Be Naked Too!!!!!!! Who Thinks That Erin Should Be Naked As Well? - Me!!! *LMAO*.

8. Erin needs to concentrate on her surf lines and one Phil Collins is enough. - Um. Okay then.

9. Erin needs to understand that people don't like to see a pretty white girl with rap talent that would run circles around sir mix a lot succeed in today's ... - "Can't none a y'all mirror me back, when ya hear me rap…"

10. Erin needs a boyfriend, APPLY HERE. - So fucking true.*headdesk*
