Stolen from [ profile] jennlynnfs because I know I'm bad at updating things:

You know how sometimes people on your friend's list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when are they working THERE? Since when are they dating HIM/HER? since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you *should* already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy mine below, erase my answers putting yours in their place then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration! One-Word-Answers seldom help anyone out. :)

answers for the un-guessed quotes of the movie meme are as follows:

2. I'm afraid that one third of a gopher would only arouse my appetite without bedding it back down again. - O Brother, Where Art Thou?
3. Did I ever tell you that I used to read feet? - Godspell
4. How annoying, that they have to fight elections for their cause. The inconvenience! Having to get a majority. - Evita
11. Leave my elevator alone. - Blast from the Past

By the way, how does one go about pronouncing the word "meme"? In Doctor Who, it was pronounced as "meem" but I'm not sure that's correct.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 23.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.

*sigh* You asked for it.

From Reckless Heart, by Madeline Baker:
"Don't be deliberately obtuse, Katherine Mary Kincaid," he growled. "You know what I mean."
"Don't be absurd," Mother chided gently. "Hannah isn't going to run off with him."

Would it help if I explained that this is one of my sister's library books that happened to be lying on the floor when I glanced around for a book?

In other news, [ profile] austenfic is now up for reviewing, if anybody's interested. No, I haven't reviewed anything yet. I've been very busy, job searching.

I have an interview in the morning.

(I don't know how many of my flist listen to this type of music, but I think it's worth pointing out that I typed the chorus out each time it's sung, and each time it's translated differently.)

I've been tagged for a couple memes, so here goes. :)

From [ profile] cashima:
Explain your livejournal name and its meaning. When you're done, tag as many people as there are letters in your name.

My name has no meaning. I was having trouble coming up with a username. Everything I thought of was already taken. So I asked my sister, Christi, aka [ profile] the_duck_is_in and she said, "Green is love." So I tried that, and it worked, and voila! Here I am. :)

Tagged by [ profile] shemmelle:
Tell 6 things about yourself and then tag six more people to do the same, no tag backs.

1. I taught myself to read when I was four. My mom went back to work around that time, and thought I'd miss her reading to me. So she taped herself reading my favorite book, and left me a bunch of flashcards, and I ended up reading everything I could find. I also taught myself to read music, although my mother initially taught me to play the piano (at first, all I knew were certain "positions," and which numbers were assigned to which fingers. It was a couple years before I put two and two together, as it were, and figured out the musical scale.)

2. Even though everybody annoys me at one point or another, there are only a few people (in RL; media and internet are different) I actually dislike. I'm very aware of my own moodiness, and so make allowances for other people based on that awareness.

3. Even though I don't believe in astrology, I happen to be a pretty stereotypical Libra. Since discovering this fact, I've taken to describing myself as a Libra when people question some facet of my personality. If they know anything about it, they understand.

4. I believe everything I do (unrelated to what I don't do) boils down to curiosity. I stay up till all hours because I don't want to miss anything that might happen. I eavesdrop shamelessly ("yes, Hope?" "Oh, nothing. Just eavesdropping. Carry on"). I read because I want to know things. I write because I want to see what happens in different scenarios. And so forth.

5. I've never seen The Wizard of Oz. Most people find this odd. I've also never seen Cinderella, Snow White, Alice in Wonderland, Fantasia, or The Little Mermaid, nor do I have the desire to see any of these.

6. I'm a very picky eater. No nuts, no coconut, no coffee, no sausage, no sauerkraut, no cole slaw, no hash browns, no latkes (this one astounds everybody), very little fish, no okra, no relish, no pickles, no onions (unless they're cooked and saturated in whatever juices there are, and therefore unrecognizable as onions), the list goes on. I'm not the pickiest eater in the house, however, and this fact makes it very difficult to find meals that please enough people at a time to be acceptable for dinner. As a result, we end up eating a lot of the same things over and over again.

As usual, I tag noone. Do either of these if they please you. :)

You Should Be a Film Writer

You don't just create compelling stories, you see them as clearly as a movie in your mind.
You have a knack for details and dialogue. You can really make a character come to life.
Chances are, you enjoy creating all types of stories. The joy is in the storytelling.
And nothing would please you more than millions of people seeing your story on the big screen!
gabbydwg: (Default)
Erm. Wow. I watch a lot of movies.

When it says "started it" that could mean either "I started it and never finished" or "I've seen bits and pieces here and there."

Actually, the first time I did it (today) the cut-and-paste didn't work right, so I had to do it again. The names are still in the same order, but the scores for Batman and Sparrow were identical before. *g*
