Philosophy meme )

Hey Philosophers out there--is this an adequate title for the meme? Or does philosophy have very little to do with it?

More memage...we'll see when the saturation point hits. I first encountered it through [ profile] sanj, and have adopted [ profile] wavyarms's edits, and then made a minor edit of my own.

Who are you?
If we've met, when and how did we meet?
What event or place would you like to go to with me?
Would you kiss me?
Describe me in one word.
What was your first impression?
How has your impression of me changed? (Did it?)
What reminds you of me?
If you could give me anything what would it be?
If you could give me one book what would it be?
When's the last time you saw me?
Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't?
What do you think the future holds for me in the next 10 years that I don't expect?
What have I gotten absolutely right? Could be an event, a life philosophy, a piece of advice, a joke, anything.
What have I said/done that made you laugh the hardest?
Are you going to put this on your blog and see what I say about you?

Also, I was toying with an LJ haiku generator and produced this gem:
rule and then it
continued to rule and
then it ruled some

I leave you with that.

Song lyrics meme!
Here are the rules:
--Pick a song everyone knows.
--Take the lyrics to babelfish ( and translate English to German to French to English.
--Copy out the result and give clues and see who can guess the song.

Number one!
He was once I was falls in love, but I did not fall now only except there am anything the fact that I can make for A the total black-out of the heart he was was once there in my life easily but does not give now it only to love in the darkness anything I can the total black-out of A of the heart say.

Number two!
I alone find me with my boss at the telephone, who thinks of you, until he hurts me, white you hurts too much, but, us still can tortured, and tore up I wishes I your smile carry could, and my heart during periods, where my life feels so low her me stimuli to believe what could not tomorrow bring, if today really does not know, white I is real everything outside of the love I without in such a way you lost I to know the fact that you were good faith for, whether length is I everything outside of the love which me without you is that I not too much in delay to be can for hiré

Really, neither of these are very hard if you know me well.

And now, things that suck. )

The Dante's Inferno Test has banished you to the Seventh Level of Hell!
Here is how you matched up against all the levels:
Purgatory (Repenting Believers)High
Level 1 - Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers)High
Level 2 (Lustful)High
Level 3 (Gluttonous)Moderate
Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious)Very Low
Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy)Low
Level 6 - The City of Dis (Heretics)Very Low
Level 7 (Violent)Very High
Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers)Moderate
Level 9 - Cocytus (Treacherous)Very Low

Take the Dante's Inferno Hell Test

Weird. I'd have expected far more in the heresy, less in the "Virtuous Nonbelievers", and...violent?

...Well, okay, I did play GTA Vice City tonight. And I did run over pedestrians right, left, and center. But the way they bounce off the hood is just so satisfying!

The following are six statements about myself and my identical twin [ profile] stealthmuffin. Three are true. Three are false. Can you guess which? (Note: a false statement is entirely false.)

1. We had the same combined score on the SATs.
2. We had matching Star Trek: TNG costumes.
3. One of us GMed the first game the other ever played.
4. Ours is the fourth generation in our family to go to college.
5. One of us had a crush on Captain Haddock, and one on Tintin.
6. When we were nine, both of us were rushed to the hospital within weeks of each other (one proved to be a false alarm).

[ profile] stealthmuffin is posting a completely different list of six true and false statements. Double your twin-quizzy fun!

I'm typing this via [ profile] sen_no_ongaku's computer, because the Lappy will no longer even reboot. So I'm trying to take my mind off of that: between some memage and going to donate platelets today, I should have a fighting chance.

Here is the meme:

"I would like everyone to go down this list and pick ONE from each pair that you think describes me the best. Then copy this and post it in your own journal to see how your friends view you."

dominant or submissive
logical or intuitive
social or loner
kinky or vanilla
cute or sophisticated
kitten or puppy
warm flannel sheets or sleek satin
leader or follower
quiet or talkative
spontaneous or planned

and let me add two:
bacon or ham
hands or brain

My laptop is...contrary.
Occasionally, power flow to the keyboard will just stop dead. Apparently all it needs is either a) time to rest, or b)a good whack.

Anyway. Here's the entry I was writing when it died, died, died.

I've been fairly anxious about posting this meme, because it is, in effect, asking for stuff. And I dislike the idea of begging, or *strongly hinting*...

...but, really, I love the feeling of being able to act on someone else's wishlist. ([ profile] 2h2o, you will have some cds to claim!) And so I want to see more of them. With tangible or intangible wishes, with stuff I can help with and stuff I can't...

Anyway. Here is the wishlist meme! Read more... )

Ten years ago, I;
had a crush on my Biology teacher, who looked like Christopher Reeve
was trying to think of smart college entrance essays
hung plaid curtains in my dorm windows

Five years ago, I;
learned the fine art of cleaning up cat yak
made some new friends from Connecticut in Somerville
was struggling with my first professional, real job

One year ago, I;
led my players into the town of Clepsis, full of crime, temples, sorcery, and ditz elementals
made a silk tulle tutu for an actress's 3-year-old so she could look like her mom
was starting to tell people that I was interested in graduate study

So far this year, I;
have not shied away from my decision to pursue graduate study (tho the application's still not in)
have walked on the seashore at night while the moon rose, holding hands and looking for turtles
learned to use my grandmother's loom

Yesterday, I;
gave platelets at seven in the morning while reading a Thomas Covenant book
started my first official day of work as a Harvard Staff Assistant (III) (helping with tenure committees)
went to bed after DaMan, which is extremely rare

Today, I;
finished my paper by getting up at five and working through lunch, but didn't have to work on it during work hours
set up four final packages for four promotions to professor
will be going to sleep early surrounded by Law & Order and Zim and Oob while Mike goes to poker night
(and will also call my younger sib, I got your message!)

Tomorrow, I will;
wreak screaming underground doom on my players
figure out how and when twin and I will be going home for Christmas
try to define my new job responsibilities

In one year, I hope I;
am working through midterms at divinity school
have finished quilts for sibling and cousin
sleep in on weekend mornings among flannel sheets in a big bed next to DaMan and DaOob

In five years, I;
will have started to save for a house
will be working on my dissertation (no reason to delay it!)
will see my younger sib more than once a year for two days

No more Red Bull and gin for me, thanks, I'm jiggly. (Or is that Gigli?)

--I reopened my file with John Leonard Temps yesterday, and they had a job for me today. Sadly, I'm too quick with data entry; my work was over by three. Well, it means more contracts in the future, right?

--Sent out four more applications to Hahvahd jobs. Hooking up with Spherion on Thursday, but ultimately, the purpose of this year is to break things and kill people do something interesting or make money. So Hahvahd does not need to be any part of that.

--Thanks for the name suggestions! The characters will be put together tonight, whilst DaMan putters or composes or plays on the GameCube.

This is not so much a Meme as it is a Plan. Less questionnaire, more personal-inventory device. (Interesting how the meaning of ‘meme’ has shifted over time, no?) I’ve been inspired by [ profile] cincodemaygirl’s use of it, and I’m attempting the same.

Here are The Rules:

The Mission: Complete 101 tasks within 1001 days. (That's 2 years, 13 weeks, and 3 days, or November 22, 2006 in case you’re wondering.)

The Criteria: Tasks must be specific (i.e. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (i.e. represent some amount of work on my part).

I’m taking that to mean that these aren’t “resolutions” a la New Year’s, but “tasks”. Such as, “Write three letters to people with whom I’ve fallen out of touch” rather than “Get back in touch with people”. Or “Lose ten pounds” rather than “Lose weight”. I will Memory this list and cross them off as I get them done…

It was harder than I thought it would be to come up with this list, even when I included the Big Ones. (Those are the first five.) The book and movie lists are ones that I’m not generally inclined to seek out or that have been on my ‘to do’ list for about four years.

Right! Get ready…1001 days starts…NOW! )

Sure, why not?
(Update on the job thing coming on Tuesday...)

Part of being on is inevitably gaining a number of LJ buddies. Unfortunately, as time wears on, it's easy to forget where all of them came from. Post this in your journal and have your friends respond with how they recall first 'meeting' you.

It would probably be fairer to ask about people's earliest memories of me, since I've found it nigh impossible to remember actual initial meetings. Daring folks are also welcome to note their first impressions of me.

Kicking myself for missing DNC speeches. It's so hard to motivate myself to watch the actual convention--and I can't figure out why.

Meanwhile, I have wasted lunch hour time with THIS!!!

You are Mitsurugi -

Both mysterious and attractive, you captivate people with the fact that you seem to be
good at everything! Spending quiet moments with a friend and talking about what life means to you is your ideal situation. You don't like to stand out very much and you seem to be more old-fashioned
than modern, but when you do take the spotlight -- you command the floor!

Which Soul Calibur character are you?

Easy meme! Composed by [ profile] 2h2o!

What kind of geek are you? This Simple and Fun LJ Quiz is a simple and fun way to let all your geek friends know more about you - and if you're not a geek, you can ridicule the rest of us.

1) If you were a Smurf, your name would be:
Stitchy Smurf (also Bitchy Smurf, once a month).
2) If you were a Star Wars character, your name would be:
Jedi Master Mrs. Windu.
3) If you were a Super Hero, your special power would be:
4) If you were an Iron Chef, your cuisine type would be:
Anti-Muffin Chef!
5) If you were a theme ingredient on Iron Chef, you would be:
Mango. Mostly to hear Kaga say my name over and over.
6) If you were junk food, you would be:
A variety of Peep. Probably blue. With some disturbing not-meant-for-marshmallow flavor.
7a) If you were a D&D character, your race would be:
Dwarf. Duh.
7b) and your class would be:
Cleric. Not sure what level yet, though.
7c) and your prestige class would be:
I spit on your prestige class! Foo! Or, really, I don't have a smartass answer to this one.
8) If your life inspired a Sci-Fi Channel Original Series, it would be called:
"The Angst Files"
9) At what age did you realize that you were a geek?
Twelve. Wanted to buy Dragon Magazines, but didn't understand the game. Before, I was "smart kid", but that's different from geek.

These were taken from my "Absence of Monkey" cd and from my "sleepy on a saturday morning" mix, both of which soothe my soul greatly. Most of them were guessed!

Maniacal Mastermind: Forever the one with the
plan, YOU are the person who holds any
organization dedicated to villainy and evil
together, and that is no easy job! Not always
in a position of leadership or even wide
recognition, you often guide your nefarious
plots from behind the scenes, carefully putting
each and every piece in motion, plan in gear,
all so you can sit back and watch your
masterpiece come to fruition. Notorious
Masterminds of Comic Book Fame include Mr.
Sinister and The Riddler.

There are two memes going around right now, and I like them both:

1. Post a memory you have of me in the comments section. Yay, memory!

2. Post a memory of me that never happened! Surreal, silly, serious, funkagroovalicious...

And also, here is a toy that's pretty cool. My results are:

I couldn’t even see the illustrations, from the cheap to the 'rents. So much for that detailed entry about my lustful, debauched orgy of Peeps and Pokemon. Pokemon: The First Movie maps disturbingly well onto Rocky Horror. Not that I got all the panes are the same tendency that scorned Snow Crash? Or is this pedantic irritation? Or does the book down to do with my tank top unzipped, sipping Drambuie to put it into some organized form. You see, there was this guy I used to date--no, not any of the Great Goddess flourished in all lands…” and the

Whoa. Combine that with my platelet-loss and it's a fun evening.
