Let others know a little more about yourself by re-posting and tagging your friends.

1) What is your salad dressing of choice?
Balsamic vinegar          

2) What is your favorite sit-down restaurant?
There was a great fresh Italian place in Newcastle I went to with my mum when I was looking at uni’s  – Can’t remember the name, but it was great.  Either that, or this excellent Mexican down Leith shore.  Can’t remember the name of that either…  Favourite chain would be Frankie and Benny’s.

3) What food could you eat for 2 weeks straight and not get sick of it?
Bread, because I already have bread nearly every day for toast in the morning.

4) What are your pizza toppings of choice?
Pineapple.  I don’t abide people who rail against fruit on pizza.

5) What do you like to put on your toast?
Margarine.  Pate, although that really only happens once a year around Christmas.  For the rest of the time I forget how good meat on toast can be.

6) How many televisions are in your house?
4, and an infinite number of DVD players. 


7) What colour cell phone do you have?
Black with silver trim.  I like it very much.

8) Are you right-handed or left-handed?
Right handed.

9) Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
Tonsils.  An alien spore.

10) What is the last heavy item you lifted?
My dog, onto the table at the vets. 

11) Have you ever been knocked unconscious?
Nope, but I always wanted to be.  Never fainted either.

12) If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
Nope.  Like Big Fish says, it could help knowing when you die because you could survive everything up until that point.  But just knowing the date doesn’t tell you which philosophy of fate it prescribes to: i.e. If this is a fixed date, no matter what or if everything is in flux due to your knowledge of it.  So, to keep things simple I wouldn’t want to know.

13) If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
I’m not sure I’d suit another name – as much as I’m convinced that I don’t suit my present one.  Maybe Juliet, though I’d hate to be called “Julie.”  Isabella is my favourite name, but I’m saving that for the offspring.  Maybe I’d just shorten myself to L.J.  How early 90’s of me.

14) Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000?
If I was guaranteed to survive.  I read a thing about a guy dying from a chilli pepper eating contest.  I don’t do well with hot stuff but I could get through it for a grand I suppose.  When drunk, me and my uni compadres would dare each other 50p to eat various ridiculous condiments available on the table.  I’m sure hot sauce would be an improvement on horseradish.  Yeuck.  I’m shuddering at the recollection.

15) How many pairs of flip flops do you own?
1 pair, I think.  I can’t remember if I chucked them during my last merciless clear out.

16) What’s your goal for the year?
I have about 6 or 7.  I wrote a list of short and long term goals the other night.

17) Last person you talked to?
Katie.  She called me last night as I was about to go to sleep at 10: which was extra wussy of me.  She wanted to tell me to watch The Apprentice even though she knows I dislike reality stuff and don’t watch UK broadcast TV.

18) Last person you hugged?
Laura as I was leaving.

19) Favorite Season?

20) Favorite Holiday?
Used to be Hogmanay but last years was a non event and I didn’t even drink.  Now I’m practically verging on straight edge (urg) I’m not sure.  I’ll say the Illuminations which is the end of the season festival on Cumbrae when all the shops along the front of the island decorate their windows (and sometimes roofs) with the most extravagant and imaginative displays.  I’ve not been for many years, but memories as a kid with a pack of sparklers, walking along the front and waiting for the fireworks were great.

21) Favorite day of the week?
Don’t really have one.  Not Sunday, as transport is intolerable.  My Saturdays are usually eaten up with football.  Fridays are OK.  I don’t think I really have one.  I’ll say Thursday.

22) Favorite Month?
It would be November, were it not for the knowledge of Christmas around the corner.  I’m surprised I’m not being told to do my shopping now – Only 9 months, minus a day until Christmas!  *vomits*

23) First place you went this morning?
To the kitchen to double check when the notice said the water would be off from and to.

24) What's the last movie you watched?
I finally watched The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.  The DVD’s been sitting there for what seems like years.  S’OK.  Jesse James deserved it and Mary Louise Parker wasn’t in it nearly enough.

25) Do you smile often?
Not really.  Prefer to stay in neutral.

26) Do you always answer your phone when it rings?
Do I always hear my phone when it rings?  

27) It's four in the morning and you get a text message, who is it?
It would be a drunk apology or confession, and I can’t think of who that would be right now.  95% of my friends are responsible home owning, family having, rat race job working adults.  Boring, but I love ‘em anyway.  It would probably be Katie, she usually calls when she’s hammered.

28) If you could change your eye color what would it be?
I like my green eyes.  If anything, I would make them a sharper green all the time.  It’s actually the only green coloured thing I do like – I generally don’t like the colour.

29) What flavor drink do you get at Sonic
I do not know what this means.

30) Have you ever had a pet fish?
Plenty.  We even had mini eel fish when I was wee.  We had a proper fish tank and everything, with lovely coloured fish.  But it was a mere fairground goldfish who lasted the longest – 8 years – which I’m sure means something in the scale of the universe.

31) Favorite Christmas song?
I think Silver Bells, mostly because of the fast interlaced vocals and dramatic effect used in Home Alone 2.

32) What's on your wish list for your birthday?
Nothing. I really don’t like receiving presents.

33) Can you do push ups?
I can.  I can even do the clap in the middle.  Then I fall on my face.

34) Can you do a chin up?
Nope. My chin’s not that cool.

35) Does the future make you more nervous or excited?
Neither.  I feel more interested.  It’s the present I get nervous or excited about.

36) Do you have any saved texts?
I never delete texts so they’re saved by laziness.

37) Ever been in a car wreck?
Wreck, no.  Fender bender, yes.

38) Do you have an accent?
What an idiotic question this is.  Of course I have an accent.  Everyone has an accent.  

39) What is the last song to make you cry?
Apocalyptica’s Fade to Black.  It has the most beautiful note ever heard, and the cello is just the instrument to play it.  I spent a hangover/weepy break up day lounging about eating crap and listening to this song on headphones.

40) Plans tonight?
Not really.  Maybe decide what project I want to work on, cause I’m getting no where fast by going in 6 different directions.

41) Have you ever felt like you hit rock bottom?
I have.  I did not enjoy it.

42) Name 3 things you bought yesterday.
A new blue football, AC Milan football socks that were on sale (I love sleeping in football socks) and new training bottoms.

43) Have you ever been given roses?

44) Current hate right now?
The fricking road works through the centre of town which is making everything a nightmare and I have not yet seen them working.  It’s supposed to go on for another 3 weeks and they are not doing a fricking thing.  It’s making everyone crazy.  I’m quite glad I’m not in Edinburgh for the month long shutdown of Princes Street with no work done.  That would make me mega crazy, and also quite sad – the roads have been butchered and the centre of town looks a complete state.

45) Met someone who changed your life?
It’s hard to say.  Hard to say whether my life was changing already.

46) Have you ever dated someone longer than a year?
 Just under a year.  Twice.  I never seem to be able to make it to that anniversary

47) Do you have any tattoos/ piercings?
My ears were pierced when I was younger but I haven’t worn earrings for about a decade.  Got the side of my lip pierced in uni and wore it for about a year, but kept losing the ball for the ring and got fed up.  It’s still open though, as well as my ears.

48) Does anyone love you?
My dog – she loves me and has no qualms about showing me.  Apart from that, my parents and my closest friends.

49) Do you like to cuddle?
Sometimes and only with certain people.

50) Have you held hands with anyone today?

51) Who was the last person you took a picture of?
I don’t take pictures of people, I take pictures of places and yesterday it was the view of the Haylie Brae above Largs.  My shitty wee camera phone pics do not do it justice.

52) Have you ever ridden an elephant?

53) Do you like to play Scrabble?
I don’t mind it.  I prefer Monopoly.

54) How did you bring in the New Year?
Playing Guitar Hero and sitting in my friends kitchen.  There was no party, it was just us who couldn’t be bothered going out.

55) What song represents you?
I’m not sure as I only ever relate songs to other people.

56) What were you doing 12 AM last night?
Sleeping, huzzah!  I’m quite happy I’ve got into a good healthy sleep pattern.

57) What was the first thing you thought of when you woke up?
What are you doing in my room?

Do not go on this site.

It's procrastination in it's purest form.  I know it's not just me who can sit, dead eyed, blank soul and an active index finger which just keeps pressing 'Deal' for a new game of Solitaire.  Well, this site is much, much worse.  I haven't actually explored any of the dozens of games on offer, bar one - 9 ball pool.  It's getting ridiculous. I must stop.

I've done many things to procrastinate from writing in the past wee while and it seems like every time I settle down, something distracts me - phone call, text, dog...  I've set myself a deadline on Sunday night.  I work so much better to deadlines.  I've even written it in red pen on my calendar.  Hopefully that will be the sufficient kick up the ass I need.

I've been listening to a bit of Morissette today and when listening to 21 Things I Want In A Lover I wondered how many conditions I would actually fill.


  1. Do you derive joy when someone else succeeds?
    Depends who but usually yes.  I can’t help but be bitter if I dislike the person.

  2. Do you not play dirty when engaged in competition?
    I play fair but may quietly sulk if comprehensively beaten.

  3. Do you have a big intellectual capacity?
    I believe so.

  4. But know that it alone does not equate wisdom?

  5. Do you see everything as an illusion?

  6. But enjoy it even though you are not of it?

  7. Are you both masculine and feminine?
    I do enjoy boypants, beer and football so we’ll say yes.

  8. Politically aware?

  9. And don't believe in capital punishment?
    Absolutely don’t believe.  But I believe if I was ever in the position of someone close to me being killed, I’d want the perpetrator swinging.  But that’s why we have a legal system.

  10. Do you derive joy from diving in and seeing that loving someone can actually feel like freedom?
    Complex question, Alanis.  I would have to go with yes.  I usually have to be pushed before ‘diving in’ though.

  11. Are you funny?
    I hope so.  Otherwise I’ve just been getting pity laughs my entire joke-making life.  Or they’re all laughing at me.

  12. A la self-deprecating?
    Only with good friends.

  13. Like adventure?
    I like what I consider adventure, but haven’t been in any treasure caves recently.

  14. And have many formed opinions?
    Too many.

  15. Are you uninhibited in bed?
    Can be.

  16. More than three times a week?
    Yes, more than 3 times a week – Would you like an estimate first,, Alanis?

  17. Up for being experimental?
    The extent of your ‘experimental’ intrigues me, so I’ll say yes.

  18. Are you athletic?
    I try but not really.

  19. Are you thriving in a job that helps your brother?

  20. Are you not addicted?
    Oh, I have many addictions.

  21. ...curious and communicative...
    Yes, yes.


Looks like 17/21.  I cannot believe that I am so bored that I accidentally created a meme.  Urgh.

Need big rock to head immediately please.

My Top 5 (tagged by [profile] zee014 - Who else would give me such a task?)

1) List 5 celebrities you would consider having sex with without even asking questions (provided they smelled good).
2) Put all of them IN ORDER of your lust for them [5 - 1, 1 is the hottest].
3) Say which movie/show/thing it was that hooked you.
4) Supply photos for said people.
5) Tag five people


5 – Elizabeth Perkins

Lovely.  Just lovely.  Her hair's quite strawberry blonde here, but often quite red.  As Celia Hodes, she is one of the hottest women ever to say 'fuck'.  Weeds would be the thing that turned me onto her.  But I do remember thinking she was very beautiful as a child watching Miracle on
34th Street.


4 – Jennifer Garner


Though this is an undeniably racy picture, the reason I like Garner is that she’s so naturally beautiful and wholesome, especially when smiling.  She’s got that strong jaw, sun kissed skin thing that I like.  Many people may not think that a ‘thing’ but it is to me.  Alias would be the show that introduced me to JG.

3 – Kristen Bell


My obsession with KB has been well-documented in this journal.  She’s just so classy, beautiful and smart.  I first saw her in Veronica Mars, squealed like a little bitch when she turned up in Heroes as I hadn’t read any spoilers for her casting but it was my dream that spurred on the love.

2 – Kate Winslet


First adored in Titanic, then in Jude and Heavenly Creatures.  My love grew as she acted her socks off in the terrific Quills and was cemented truly in Eternal Sunshine’s crotch showing scene in the 70’s dress with red hair.  Myself and another pervy little friend clutched each other and squealed in the cinema as this moment.  Were we embarrassed?  No, not a bit!

1 – Angelina Jolie


First, last and probably always.  I think Jolie splits opinions but she is undeniably beautiful, even if she isn’t your cup of tea.  Loved her in Tomb Raider – a friend of mine buying her and me matching Lara Croft posters from the local video shop – and tracked her back catalogue to Gia and this is where the love bloomed.  I’ve seen most of what she’s done – both good and bad – but she remains immensely talented.  She’s talented and fierce yet sometimes appearing vulnerable and gentle.  Plus, the lips aren’t exactly a turn off either.

Honourable Mentions to: Catherine Zeta Jones (Huge Chicago era crush), Sandra Bullock (because I rewatched Speed the other day), Winona Ryder (Because I like the way she talks. And steals) Christina Ricci (I even fancied her in Casper – but it’s not wrong as I’m younger), Kate Walsh (who would be in the top 5, were it not for the true guffity of Private Practice), Natalie Portman (whose clear talent makes me hot and bothered), Claire Danes (Sooo pretty), Eliza Dushku (I’m sure I would struggle to walk afterwards), Jennifer Beals (Just because), Leighton Meester (Also, just because), Megan Mullally, Cate Blanchett, Emily Blunt and many, many more.


Really.  It would’ve been easier to make a top 100.

And now other stuff.  Well I’ve been watching a couple of movies lately.  I do go through phases where I’ll have the patience and/or time to sit down and enjoy a film and then I’ll watch loads.  Then I’ll watch nothing for months.  It cycles.


Seen Dark Knight.  As many, many others have.  Very enjoyable, well written, well acted and I’d say that I liked it better than Batman Begins.  However, this craziness over at IMDB which ranks it number one of all time - above Shawshank Redemption and Gia - is just nonsense.   I have full faith that the balance to the universe will be restored in a few months once everyone’s shit has calmed down.


Rewatchings of Casino and Speed followed, both being enjoyed thoroughly.  Casino remains my favourite Scorcese movie – an opinion which is often scoffed at.  I care not.


Then watched Poseidon tonight (I was in the mood for sinking ship stuff after the Doctor Who similar type Xmas special.)  I’m a fan of disaster films – good trash to get swept up in, I say.  I’m also funnily enough, a fan of Kurt Russell (Maybe because I fancy both his partner and daughter).  I’ve grown accustomed to his face.  Poseidon got me thinking about what I would do in such a situation (as most disaster films do).  I was getting immensely pissed off at Mia Maestro’s whiny character - so much so that I had to express my opinion to the screen with a series of grunts and then later shrieking ‘OH MY GOD YOU GIT, JUST GET ON WITH IT! IT’S NOT THAT DIFFICULT IF YOU WANT TO LIVE!  YOUR IDIOCY IS GOING TO GET EVERYONE KILLED!’


Therefore, I have come to the conclusion that if I was ever in a disaster situation, I would vet my crew or accompanying party while I make a break for safety.


Claustrophobic?  Panic attacks?  Then no, sorry, stay here and die with the others. I can’t have you spazzing out at possibly the worst moment


Drunk?  No, no.  It’s best you stay here and enjoy your last moments as you will surely make some hideous inebriated mistake and die horribly.  But not before acting like a jackass and causing discord in the group.


Weak/injured but too noble for own good?  Sorry.  I’ll just get attached to you and then you’ll die to either save the rest of us or because you were too slow or pathetic.


Child?  No.  Just NO.  I realise that in Poisedon they needed they little moron to get past one challenge, but really, who the hell wanders off while on a sinking ship?  You get bored with all the imminent danger and death? Idiot.


Kurt Russell?  Yeah.  OK.  You’ve got me there.  I do want you on my team.  While others would pick Willis, Stallone or even Van Damme: I’m sticking with Russell.

I imagine there are probably more criteria.

And a final word on the new Half Blood Prince trailer - Voldemort Begins, or what?  Barely saw any Hermione.  Humph.  But the mini-Voldemort kid looks ace.  The pensieve vials look... highly suggestive.  It's estimated that slash writers have produced 176% more fanfic since the release of this trailer.

And on my meander through the f-list I see that I've been tagged by [personal profile] acoustics1220 and I am nothing if not obedient (/lie) and a sucker for meme’s to waste time.  However, I shall not tag because mostly I think anyone on my f-list I tagged would point and laugh at me.

HP edition.


1. The first character I fell in love with

Hermione Granger.

2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now

Ginny Weasley.  Because, y’know, in the first book she was this barely-there, starstruck little wean.  Ginny or Bellatrix.  I think before I really got to know Bella, I was in the ‘OMG, but she’s so evil!!!11’ camp.  Then I got to know and love her and now I’m in the ‘Yes.  She’s evil.  She’s deliciously, fanatically evil’ place.

3. The character everyone else loves that I don't

James or Sirius.  Sometimes I’m so incredibly annoyed by them that I can’t sit still while reading.

4. The character I love that everyone else hates

It’s really hard to gauge the hate of a character in a fandom this big. I'm sure plenty of fangirls hate Bella because she - OMG killed Sirius! So, we'll go for Bella.

5. The character I used to love but don't any longer

Merope Gaunt.  No.  Kidding.  I don’t think there’s any in the HP fandom that I’ve swung that dramatically on.

6. The character I would shag anytime

Lily.  Or Hermione.  Or Ginny.  Or Bella.  Or any of the Black sisters.

7. The character I'd want to be like

*straight face*  Filch.

8. The character I'd slap

Filch, in a kinky way.  James Potter.

9. A pairing that I love

Filch/mops. Hermione/Ginny.

10. A pairing that I despise

mops/brooms.  Ron/Hermione - come on, you saw that coming, didn’t you?  Failing that – Lily/James.  I’m really don’t understand the school-bully-turned-nice-guy thing and Lily shouldn’t have forgotten the past so easily.  James was a horrid little twerp.



BtVS/AtS edition


1.  The first character I fell in love with

In innocent love – S1-2 Buffy Summers.  In lusty, dirty, filthy love? Faith.

2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now

Anya and Fred.

3. The character everyone else loves that I don't

Andrew.  Fuck fuck fuck Andrew.  Yes, three fucks are necessary.  I hate that little git.

4. The character I love that everyone else hates

Hm, this is difficult.  Would Darla or Lilah be particulary hated?  I don’t think they are.  Glory? 

5. The character I used to love but don't any longer

Spike.  Loved Spike in s2 and his dynamic with Dru and thought he was cleverly written into season 4.  I can still enjoy a witty line from Spike during 6&7 but as soon as he starts with the ‘Oh, Buffy, I love you so much that I’d kid on getting my own soul back even though I was clearly looking for the chip because there is no way I’d be idiotic enough to want a soul back, especially seeing what it did to Angelus but somehow I ended up with this soul and blah blah blah’ crap I scream at the TV.

6. The character I would shag anytime

Faith.  Darla.  Glory.  At the same time.  Now that’s crazy!sex.  Add Dru and it’s fully-fledged insane.

7. The character I'd want to be like

*straight face*  D’Hoffyrn.

8. The character I'd slap

Connor.  Andrew.

9. A pairing that I love

Buffy/Faith.  Willow/Tara.  Buffy/Angel (Yes, I am a nostalgic sap.)

10. A pairing that I despise


Edit: because of format fuckage.  Is anyone else experiencing the same difficulties or is it just me?  It happened last night as well.  I believe it must be firefox3's fault but just checking in case it's an LJ thing.

lynsangelic1: (BtVS:Buffy cam Your plan didn't work bit)
1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favorite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.

I got my questions from [personal profile] acoustics1220

lynsangelic1: (Bette credits)

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post a line bit from the first 30 10 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
(To be lazy and make it easier)
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess which song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly

I would say this is indicative of the crap that's on my winamp, but not necessarily my tasteI don't expect anyone to participate.  This is because I'm restless, tired and bored.


1.  That I can hardly wait / To hold you / Enfold you / Never enough / Render your heart to me


2.  It's a new dawn / It's a new day / It's a new life / For me..   Muse - Feelin' Good  - [profile] belladancerela [profile]


3. We're gift-wrapped kitty cats / We're only turning into tigers when we gotta fight back / Let's go, Eskimo / Out into the blue 


4. Like twisted vines that grow / That hide and swallow mansions whole / And dim the light of an already / Faded prima donna


5. We're losing control, will you turn me away/ Or touch me deep inside? / And if all this gets old, will it still feel the same? / There's no way this will die


6. No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue / I could not foresee this thing happening to you / If I look hard enough into the setting sun / My love will laugh with me before the morning comes


7.   I thought I'd drown myself in you / Well I shook the honey glaze from my head / and I realised, yeah i realised / I'd do anything for you


8. He's become a a one-man rise in crime / I'd blame parents except he hasn't got 'em / Gotta eat to live, gotta steal to eat / Tell you all about it when I got the time


9. Sitting alone in the dark of a stadium / He whispers his secrets into a cheap guitar / With the flick of his wrist he turns words into melodies / Chords into church bells, fill up the allies / Lovers intwine in the heat of the night / And by dawn are apart in the shivering silences

10. I had a vision I could turn you right / a stupid mission and a lethal fight / I should have seen it when my hope was new / my heart is black and my body is blue

lynsangelic1: (Locked out Addy)

So I’ve been away a while.  I haven’t written anything and it’s getting beyond frustrating to ridiculous.  Next stage I’ll be sitting in a dark room, listening to the bands I listened to ten years ago and wonder how I got so uninspired and so unfulfilled.  Urgh.  I hate my writing temperament.  It mimics junkie behaviour.  The high, the low, the need, the depression, the ‘Oh My God, nothing is ever going to be this good!’ feeling when I get that spark…


Thus, I turn to fandom, open arms and weeping.  I need to finish both the Grey’s and HP fics.  I will not get a good nights sleep til I do.  Maybe once they’re resolved I can do some original stuff.  Maybe.  Or start another FF.

And I think the best way to help this is with a good ol’ meme:

I’ll drabble away for the first five people to leave a comment.  I’ll need from your wonderful brains: 

1.  Fandom (HP, Grey’s/PP really, but may be able to do others.)

2.  Pairing (Has to be femmeslashy – been too long since I’ve written het.  Too, too long)

3.  Place

4.  ‘Inciting incident’ or a line of dialogue.


And perhaps anything else you want to spoon feed me ;)


Because what am I doing otherwise?  Helping my sister with her (homework) Uni Literature Review which is due at noon tomorrow.  I am the Queen of Night-Before-Essay-Writing.  I’ve instructed her (in a way that made her say ‘Pfft, you ever thought of being a teacher?’ *facepalm*  Like you’re the first person to tell me that.) to make a plan and I’ll be down in 45 minutes to help her write it in fancy smancy words.  (Not that smancy is any kind of word…)

Anyway… Someone beckon me out of my funk before I find some awful compilation CD from 1997.
