The problem with LJ: 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.

I've got some space for some more userpics, so go forth and recommend me some that you think I might like (though when posting please say where it's from and who I should credit).

My current userpics are here so you can see what kind of stuff I like. If you CBA to click I like: animals (cartoon or real), Disney, BSG (especially Kara and/or Lee), Doctor Who, Star Trek (DS9 esp), Stargate, 80's cartoons, Wallace and Gromit, XKCD and Harry Potter. I'm open to other ideas too :)

So, go post recommendations below. I'll be really interested to see what turns up :)

Been a while since I did a meme. Stole this one from [livejournal.com profile] howlinchickhowl.

1) Comment to this post and I will ask you three questions that you are not expecting to be asked (i.e. not "what's your favourite colour" or anything that you might normally be asked as a getting to know you question)

2) Answer them :)

3) If you should like, continue the crazy ice-breaking fun at your own journals.

[livejournal.com profile] deusmetallum linked to the Vote for Policies website earlier, specifically the tool they have for identifying which party you should vote for based on how you respond to their manifesto (it's a blind test, so your natural/historic political leanings don't influence it.

My results show that I'm apparently a raging hippie.



According to this I identify most with the Green Manifesto on questions of Crime, Immigration, Welfare and Environment. I'm a Lib Dem when it comes to Democracy, Economy, Education, Europe and Health/the NHS.

I'm not terribly surprised that I've come up as Liberal Democrat, as that's the way I feel I most lean. I was surprised by how much I seem to agree with the Green Party manifesto. Something to think about prior to election day I think.

If you're interested, my results are here.

This weekend was very nice. We started it celebrating [livejournal.com profile] nert's birthday at Super Noodles (Happy Birthday!), which was great fun, then up early on Saturday for [livejournal.com profile] bencc and I (and a passenger) to bumble down to Dorset for a pancake party at Stotty's place.

Sadly we were rather delayed by a problem with one of our tyres, but Ben managed to fix it and we got away having not lost too much time. Ben's learning to drive and so we went via some very beautiful (if roundabout) A-Roads so that he could get some practice in (he did the majority of the driving and very well :)). We had lunch at Ditchling, near Brighton, on the way. It was Ben's choice, and he picked there as he's been wanting to show me the view from there since London to Brighton last June. The view was well worth it, and quite amazing.

In Dorset we had a really lovely time with various people, and ate many pancakes, which were expertly cooked by the host. Got back not so long ago and I'm tired now, but very forfilled. Weekend with friends was lovely :)

To finish, a quiz, stolen from [livejournal.com profile] red_pill ages ago.

Your result for The Golden Compass Daemon Test...

Shy Secretive Soul

You are very shy, and social situations make you nervous and tend to exhaust you. You are most comfortable at home, in your own space, where you feel safe. You have a shaky self-esteem, and you feel uncomfortable and shy in strange social situations. The offhand comments that people make can sometimes hurt you. You rarely step up to your own defense, however. You hate confrontation and don't like to make a fuss.

You are uncomfortable discussing your feelings. You often will brush off personal questions with a shrug, a joke or even a lie, rather than confess what is really in your heart. You are especially distrustful of strangers, and you work to hide your sensitive spots from them. While you open up more with your loved ones, even your closest friends can hurt your feelings and may never even know that it happened. There are certain lines, however, that they aren't allowed to cross. When that happens, you tend to snap, and surprise everyone with the vehemence of your outburst.

You will tell white lies or avoid the whole truth in order to help keep the peace. What is the point of hurtful truths that will only make your friends and family unhappy, or that might cause a fight? This means, however, that your own feelings get hurt more, because people don't know how you really feel about it.

Your daemon would represent your shy, sensitive and somewhat distrustful nature. He or she would probably ride on your shoulder or in your pocket, and whisper comforting things in your ear.

Poetry

lizziec: (apod - Venus)
Following on from [livejournal.com profile] xanantha here and [livejournal.com profile] chaletian here, here is a poem, which is one of my favourites.

Long Distance II
(Tony Harrison)

Though my mother was already two years dead
Dad kept her slippers warming by the gas,
put hot water bottles in her side of the bed
and still went to renew her transport pass.

You couldn't just drop in. You had to phone.
He'd put you off an hour to give him time
to clear away her things and look alone
as though his still raw love were such a crime.

He couldn't risk my blight of disbelief
though sure that very soon he'd hear her key
scrape in the rusted lock and end his grief.
He knew she'd just popped out to get the tea.

I believe life ends with death, and that is all.
You haven't gone shopping; just the same,
in my new black leather phone book there's your name
and the disconnected number I still call.

You Are An INFP



The Idealist



You are a creative person with a great imagination. You enjoy living in your own inner world.

Open minded and accepting, you strive for harmony in your important relationships.

It takes a long time for people to get to know you. You are hesitant to let people get close to you.

But once you care for someone, you do everything you can to help them grow and develop.



In love, you tend to have high (and often unrealistic) standards.

You are very sensitive. You tend to have intense feelings.



At work, you need to do something that expresses your personal values.

You would make an excellent writer, psychologist, or artist.



How you see yourself: Unselfish, empathetic, and spiritual



When other people don't get you, they see you as: Unrealistic, naive, and weak



And a couple of videos for you all, from my recent trip to Wildwood.

A meme:



You Are a Comma



You are open minded and extremely optimistic.

You enjoy almost all facets of life. You can find the good in almost anything.



You keep yourself busy with tons of friends, activities, and interests.

You find it hard to turn down an opportunity, even if you are pressed for time.



Your friends find you fascinating, charming, and easy to talk to.

(But with so many competing interests, you friends do feel like you hardly have time for them.)



You excel in: Inspiring people



You get along best with: The Question Mark



As with most memes, I have no idea how true it is.

Weirdest advert I've seen in a long time. Saw this while watching something on tv, and boggled. Still boggling at it a few days after inital exposure. So I thought I'd share ;) )

Finally, I know that Britain, nay The World, is "Credit Crunched" (*shudders* - I hate that term), but I think that this is going a bit far in terms of swapping products to save money )

Jumping on the bandwagon. First sentence of first post of each month of the year. It was [livejournal.com profile] mrs_redboots who tipped me over the edge.

January: Ever since Portal came out in Mid October last year, my husband [livejournal.com profile] benc has been more or less obsessed with Moist Delicious Cake and The Weighted Companion Cube which are both "components" of the game.

February: Last night I saw the most recent Wulffmorgenthaler and it amused me.

March: In other news, I've been very busy this week, doing something every day (including seeing [livejournal.com profile] bethanthepurple twice! hello bethan!).

April: Niamh: Better than last week, pity that she seemed constantly struggling against the band for volume.

May: Jodie: Seemed lucky with the song choice - I seem to think of it as a musical theatre song more than a big band song.

June: I'm curious about my f-list's opinions on this because I don't really know where I stand.

July: Today the NHS turns 60, and I want to wish it a very happy birthday and wish it well for the next 60.

August: I went with [livejournal.com profile] no1typo today to Greenwich to have a wander around the market and we had a lovely time.

September: [livejournal.com profile] benc has just come to a startling conclusion that I feel must be shared with the world.

October: For those of you who are interested in going to the Tyler Hill bonfire and fireworks, they are on Saturday 1st November this year.

November: Firstly I feel I should mention the US election.

December: A link for those of you who are in to Battlestar Galactica (I think it's spoiler free).

Finally, a very happy New Year to you all! :D

I'm off to the CBB Christmas party tomorrow. I keep worrying I've not brought enough stuff for it, though I'm fairly sure I've over prepared/brought.

Have a meme.

Your rainbow is intensely shaded indigo, yellow, and blue.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

What is says about you: You are a proud person. You appreciate friends who get along with one another. You share hobbies with friends and like trying to fit into their routines. You're good at getting people to like you.

Find the colors of your rainbow at spacefem.com.

Your rainbow is intensely shaded indigo, yellow, and blue.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

What is says about you: You are a proud person. You appreciate friends who get along with one another. You share hobbies with friends and like trying to fit into their routines. You're good at getting people to like you.

Book: Titanic: The Ship that Never Sank? (It's essentially a Titanic conspiracy book, rather interesting and good for a laugh [you can't trust in a theory an author puts forward if he messes up which man was fifth officer and which was sixth]).

"What these objects may have been has never been satisfactorily explained but coupled with the description of a nearby ship, with its bows hight out of the water, firing rockets, the possibility of a collision between Titanic and another vessel arises.

Might this be the explanation for the two boats that Quartermaster Rowe saw from the liner's Poop Deck 20min before Titanic launched the first of her own lifeboats? If such a collision actually occurred and the damaged vessel moved away to the northward, or Titanic to the south then events aboard Californian, laying stopped some distance to the north suddenly become more easily explainable.

The Deep and Meaningful Winnie-The-Pooh Character Test )

the spacefem.com html color quiz )

In other news, I've been very busy this week, doing something every day (including seeing [livejournal.com profile] bethanthepurple twice! hello bethan!). It makes me aware that while I am doing much better, I'm still not there yet - being out for two hours or over makes me so tired I just have to come home and crash. At least I'm handling getting out every day, and that is definite progress.

I've also been watching a lot of dvds, as mum got me a dvd service subscription for Christmas. It's quite cool. I've seen films I've wanted to see but haven't got around to (Hairspray, Letters from Iwo Jima) and ones that I haven't seen for ages (Regeneration, Carry on Teacher), and series that I was curious about but couldn't afford the box sets of (House). The House is being staggered - one part of a series to every two films in my list on average, because otherwise its formula House formula ) annoys the hell out of me. In small doses it's fun though. Do any of you have any film/tv series recommendations to add to my list? :)

I'm looking forward to this weekend. Liz and Si's housewarming. Get to see lots of people I haven't for a while. Should be fun :)

A random though occurred to me while in the bath tonight. I should point out before I write this thought down that it was conjured up by random musings while humming Jesus Christ, Superstar songs to myself. I have no idea what the bible says about this or anything.

Anyway, it occurred to me that Judas really got a raw deal. Assuming that the whole thing is real (and I really don't know where I stand on that at the moment, so please don't ask or try to convince me either way), Jesus had to die so the whole resurrection thing could happen. The whole thing was pre ordained. Therefore someone would always have had to have turned Jesus in. Judas is very badly thought of for doing it and the word today generally means a betrayer. Really, sucks to have been him. Talk about a no win situation. If he hadn't dobbed Jesus in then he wouldn't have died on the cross and been resurrected and then ascended in to heaven and so Jesus could not have taken on everyone's sins and allowed for repentence and whatever. But if he had then he would have been branded forever and presumably sent to hell. I almost feel sorry for the guy. If he existed.

Hmm. That was all rather heavy and brain dumpy. Have some quizzes to take your minds off it.

My brain sex and which Austen Heroine I am )

Finally, I want to draw your attention to the Photomeme which only one person (hi mum!) seems to want to do. Please participate? :)

In honour of my new camera I'm going to do a Photomeme again. I last did this in 2005 (see here).

Post a comment and ask me to post a picture of anything in my life - our gerbils, a bookshelf, my desk, whatever. It will hopefully help you to get an insight of my life!

Feel free to post this yourselves if you feel like it. I'd be interested to see elements of your lives too :)


Gogogo!

To inspire you, here are the pictures I took over the last few days with new shiny - quite a lot of them are me playing around to see what it can do ;)

Prezzos - We went and tried Prezzos for the first time on Thursday. Was pleasantly surprised. Their mains were nice, but it was the honeycomb cheesecake that really made it :D

Herne Bay - We went to Herne Bay today and I played with my camera. There are a couple of shots I'm really pleased with: here, here and here. After boggling at the sheer amount of rust on the pier I'm thinking about starting a series of photos on Herne Bay called "Herne Bay - A Study in Rust". I have also discovered that either Herne Bay is on a lean or I take all my pictures wonky ;)

More Gerbils - more pictures of the gerbils! :D Them's so cute!
