Bringing this meme back (do we still do memes on LJ?) because it's my favourite.

When you see a Shakespeare quotation in a journal, post one in yours.
By your most gracious pardon,
I sing but after you.

My salad days,
When I was green in judgment, cold in blood,
To say as I said then! But come, away;
Get me ink and paper:
He shall have every day a several greeting,
Or I’ll unpeople Egypt.
- Antony and Cleopatra, Act I, Scene V

I had such a ACADEMIC crush on my undergrad Shakespeare professor (he was a grandpa). But he was so kind, learned everyone's names in about a week, would randomly start quoting passages from memory in the middle of a lecture, and one time dragged the poor TA up to the front to re-enact a scene between Antony and Cleopatra with him (he played the part of Cleo). I think A & C was one of his favourites (consequently what I wrote my final essay on--GOT AN A \o/). He told us about using a passage from it in a Valentines card for his wife because he thought it was the most romantic.

Siiiiigh. Yeah, when my cousin came to visit me that year and came to that class she said I embarrassed her because I was sitting there, sighing dreamily at him and fluttering my eyelashes à la Indiana Jones.

Of course, he wasn't the only one. I also had a Classics professor known colloquially around campus as the Silver Fox. I had friends who would give up their spare periods to come to class with me. And then in first year I had a psych prof with a super lovely accent and super tight jeans. ;D

You can definitely see the thread beginning there in my penchant for only being attracted to the unavailable. ("What's your type?" "Oh, married grey-haireds or wholly fictional. You?")

hjea: (dw-huggy hugs)
Less than a month since my last post! See? I'm getting better.

(Well... no. But I think blind optimism still wins me some points for the Great LJ Come Back Tour 2011)

Anyway, I thought I'd try out the HOLIDAY LOVE MEME for the first time, since we could all use a little more love around the holidays. Myself included. ;) (MY THREAD IS HERE)

If you've done one too, please link me so we can all ~~anonymously~~ tell each other how much we love everyone and want to squish their faces. Just please don't hold my love of ~emphasis tildes~ against me. Or my propensity for face-squishing.
hjea: (misc-shakespeare)
Because I've been scrounging Shakespeare clips on Youtube all morning. And because sometimes I really miss being an English major.

MEME: When you see a Shakespeare quotation in a journal, post one in yours.

But, I beseech your Grace, pardon me; I was born
to speak all mirth and no matter.

Your silence most offends me, and to be merry best
becomes you; for, out of question, you were born in
a merry hour.

No, sure, my lord, my mother cried; but then there
was a star danced, and under that was I born.
- Much Ado About Nothing, Act II Scene I
hjea: (dr horrible-slipping)
Woohoo, nothing like the crazy Saturday night adventures of an ol' meme. You know you're jealous of how cah-razy my life is. ;DDD

Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive:

* NO CAPTIONS!!! It must be like we're speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.
* They must ALREADY be on your hard drive - no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you've saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.
* You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don't want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like.

I wonder what this says about me... )
hjea: (buffy-slayer alone)
This started out as [livejournal.com profile] goldy_dollar's Favourite Female Characters Meme, and then sort of morphed into its own nonverbal picspam form. But I'd like to think the sentiment is still there. Also? Designed to share the happys. Blows all your misogynism blues away. ;D

...Kinda takes the edge off )
hjea: (buffy-scooby friendship)

When you see a Buffy quote in a journal, post one in yours.

Willow: “Look!”
The floor rumbles as they all stare in horror. We get a close up of Gachnar, and he’s one ugly dude. Gachnar looks up and the camera pulls back to reveal that he is tiny, maybe a half a foot tall, if that.
Buffy: “This is Gachnar?”
Xander: “Big overture. Liiiiittle show.”
Gachnar: “I am the dark lord of nightmares! The bringer of terror! Tremble before me. Fear me!”
Willow laughing: “He – he’s so cute!”
Gachnar: “Tremble!”
Xander bends down: “Who’s a little fear demon? Come on! Who’s a little fear demon!”
Giles: “Don’t taunt the fear demon.”
Xander: “Why, can he hurt me?”
Giles: “No, it’s just – tacky. Be that as it may, Buffy, when it comes to slaying...”
Buffy: “Size doesn’t matter?”
Gachnar: “They’re all going to abandon you, you know.”
Buffy: “Yeah, Yeah.”
We get a shot of Buffy’s huge foot as she stomps down and squishes the fear demon.

HEE. I &hearts you Season Four.

It's sad how quickly I'll latch on to anything with the words "Meme" and "OTP" in them. Nabbed from [livejournal.com profile] lily_268

Pick up to 13 OTPs (in no particular order).
Describe them in 13 (or possibly many more!) words or fewer.
Have your flist guess the OTP.

1. She sat on his face the first time they met. Not like that. (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] maidm, [livejournal.com profile] elizalavelle, and [livejournal.com profile] goldy_dollar)
2. It took her until a loose button on his sleeve. It took him a little longer. (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] lily_268)
3. He was actually surprised her heart was beating. (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] maidm)
4. He likes pie. She doesn't like her fruit cooked. They still complement each other. (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] goldy_dollar)
5. By-proxy hand jives work for them. (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] maidm and [livejournal.com profile] lily_268)
6. She doesn't like olives, and he still doesn't know her middle name. (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] maidm)
7. They had chips on their first date. (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ninamazing, [livejournal.com profile] maidm, [livejournal.com profile] elizalavelle, [livejournal.com profile] goldy_dollar, and [livejournal.com profile] lily_268)
8. She needs more scoundrels in her life. (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] maidm and [livejournal.com profile] goldy_dollar)
9. Yeah, he knows what she is. He doesn't care; he loves her anyway. (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ninamazing)
10. She's shocked he knows Coleridge. (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] goldy_dollar, [livejournal.com profile] elizalavelle, and [livejournal.com profile] lily_268)
11. She placed his firstborn in his lap, and he could finally see.
12. Being best friends was okay, but eventually they both wanted more than that. (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] vhari, [livejournal.com profile] goldy_dollar, and [livejournal.com profile] lily_268)
13. They need each other, but England always seems to need them just a little bit more. (Guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ninamazing, [livejournal.com profile] vhari, [livejournal.com profile] goldy_dollar, and [livejournal.com profile] lily_268)

And of course I need to compulsively disclaim my choices by saying that they're a whim of the hour and can be subject to change. Yay, indecisiveness!

fave ship
fave fandom
fave animated
best quote
best textless
best stolen idea
use the most

IF YOU COULD BUY SPACE FOR MORE, WOULD YOU: I'm probably good with what I have, considering I'm not full up yet.
DO YOUR ICONS MAKE A STATEMENT: About what I like, sure.
ARE YOUR ICONS MADE MOSTLY BY OTHER PEOPLE: No, it's like 70/20 in my favour, though I'm definitely starting to get more made by others.
ARE THEY ANY GOOD: I think they're not bad. I'm no expert, but I can fumble along with Photoshop well enough.
ANIMATED ICONS ARE: Fine in moderation. Also rather addictive to make. If time consuming.

End of year meme time! I realized that I really needed to do this one soon, as when I make posts at the beginning of the month, I often remember that "Oh, this will go in the end of year meme!" I wonder if that rather spoils the point? *g*

Ah, memories of 2008 )

Still haven't made any plans for tonight, so I should probably get on that. I'm sure something will turn up.

...Eventually I'm going to have to learn to fend for myself when it comes to my social calendar. ;D
hjea: (a2a-tea for two)
So it's definitely time for the flikr meme!

The Rules
01. Answer each of the questions below the cut using the [Flickr] search engine.
02. Choose a photo from the first three pages.
03. Copy the URL of your favourite photos [here].
04. Then share with the world.

Pictures! )


(And now I can't believe I'm applying to Grad school so I can do even more of this.)

Well, in true minion form, [livejournal.com profile] goldy_dollar did it first and now...

Sometimes it's ok to pimp yourself out. Post a list of your top five fic-favorites you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most.

Nothin' like a bit of self-promotion )
hjea: (buffy-scooby friendship)
Memes galore.

When you see a Shakespeare quote in a journal, post one in yours.

Be not afeard: the isle is full of noises,
Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight, and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum upon mine ears; and sometimes voices,
That, if I then had wak'd after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me; that, when I wak'd
I cried to dream again.
- The Tempest III.2.130-8

And just for kicks: When you see a Buffy quote in a journal, post one in yours.

"Yes, it's terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true, the bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and, uh, we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies, and everybody lives happily ever after."
hjea: (sw-i've got a bad feeling about this)
Meme time! Tagged by [livejournal.com profile] goldy_dollar

1. List your top seven character ships
2. Put all of them in order of your love for them; 7 to 1, 1 being your main fixation.
3. Name the movie/show that they're in.
4. Supply photos for said people.
5. Tag seven people.

Getting this down to seven was difficult )

And I'll tag whoever wants to play. The more OTP picspams the merrier!
hjea: (buffy-geek translation)

When you see this post, quote from Doctor Who on your LJ.

JACK: Just gotta ask. The Battle of Canary Wharf. I saw the list of the dead. It said Rose Tyler.
DOCTOR: Oh no! Sorry! She’s alive!
JACK: You’re kidding?!
THE DOCTOR: Parallel world safe and sound. And Mickey! And her mother!
JACK: Oh yes!

I'm feeling the Tyler love today. ;)

Heya. I'm bored, and considering my other option is to actually get out into Halifax and start looking for a job (it's scary! Couldn't someone just find me and give me work?), I thought I'd suggest a round of the two-sentence meme. And because I miss writing. In English. Hee.

Thus, if you'd like, give me a fandom (the regulars, plus Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes now because LOVE) a pairing and/or character and a little prompt, and in return I'll write a few sentences.

Thanks for indulging me! <3

Thought this would be a good thing, as apparently my extra icons are about to expire, and I have to go through that nail-biting, do I? do I not? thing, 'cause yes, there's totally better things to spend my money, but they make me happy!!!!!!!! We'll see. I'll probably cave. But anywho:

1) Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2) Make a post and talk about the icons I chose.
3) Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4) This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

[livejournal.com profile] locker_monster chose... )

I'm crazy bored. To the point of possibly going crazy. Probably this is what happens when professors dump work on you for two weeks and then suddenly take it all away. Damn you, university!

(Though I did finally manage to write down a few hundred words of a story that's been rattling around in my head for, um, ever, so YAY. Even if Steven Moffat did totally steal my ideas)

So, because why the heck not, the "Get to know you" meme from the ever lovely and shrine-worthy [livejournal.com profile] browncoat_2x2:

YOU'RE ON MY FRIENDS LIST, I would like to know 364 things about you. I don't care if we never talk, or if we already know everything about each other. Short and sweet is fine ... You're on my list, so I want to know you better!

Answer in the comments if'n you want to )

Re: subject title, Pushing Daisies missage still takes up a lot of my thoughts, and it saddens me deeply that we won't get any more episodes this season even if the strike ends. (Which it probably won't anytime soon, because the AMPTP is run by puppets < /pessimism>) Does this mean I'll have to start watching LOST again?

Hokay. Time to finish re-reading Dune. Paul Atreides, you still own my literary sci-fi heart for evers.
