I've been all sorts of productive today, so it's break time now. I suppose I could have done any one of the posts I've been meaning to. A crafty one (maybe about my failed attempts at finishing xmas knitting on time?), a picture post (I still have balloon rally pics to share from last September), even a thinky thought post but NOPE. You get a meme instead :D

Go to Wikipedia and hit random. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
Go to and hit random. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
Go to flickr and click on explore the last seven days. Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
Use photoshop or similar to put it all together. Post it with this text in the caption.

From wiki - Rockenhausen is a Verbandsgemeinde ("collective municipality") in the Donnersbergkreis, in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.
(Honestly? I've heard worse sounding band names)

From quotationspage - Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.

So there's this as you are meme thing? Taking a picture of yourself on the spot, right?
Here's mine :D

What? Doesn't everyone sit around in their tiaras? Anyone? No?
Okay fine, so I added the tiara which leads to the second reason for the post

(imagine glittery sparkle text there)

Package of YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYA WOOHOOO came from Australia today, and it included the newest tiara in my collection. FUN!!!

THANK YOU [ profile] iamshadow and [ profile] kath_ballantyne

So much awesome so click the clicky )

She is not only jealous but, in her own words, SUPERLY SO. (feel free to ignore the macaroni salad in progress)

Here is the question. Would a good friend share the new acquired lawn darts, or protect her from them?

Doctor - Now Pond, you don't want to play with that! It's old, dirty, kind of cracked, dangerous, and you don't know where it's been!

Amy - Do you mean the lawn darts or the man standing by them?

Doctor - Yes.

Jack - I'll tell you where I've been...

Book meme (tagged by [ profile] morgia)

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people.

“Your father is a washed-out clock jockey. I think you over-estimate his chances – and his talents. Besides, we’ve got the summer of 1947 locked down so tight not even a transtemporal gnat could get back there without us knowing about it. Retrieve Jack from ‘The Raven’ and you can have your own dear hubby back.”

You made me read ahead and spoiler myself Nadine, hope you’re happy :P

The book is Lost in a Good Book (Jasper Fforde), and lucky for me I was reading it on Thursday (haha Thursday Next) Sorry. Moving on... The book underneath it is The Complete Sherlock Holmes, much much heavier.

Not going to tag anyone, but do it if you feel like (and don’t think the book you’re reading is too embarrassing)

Now for a few pictures from our trip into the mountains this weekend. Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends mean the giant flea market takes over Packwood and we usually try to make it to at least one. )

Today was mostly spent over at [ profile] tardistenantsue's house.

Couple pics this way )

Not sure how accurate this really is. It's actually pretty hard to judge yourself, you know?

you are midnightblue

Your dominant hue is blue, making you a good friend who people love and trust. You're good in social situations and want to fit in. Just be careful not to compromise who you are to make them happy.

Your saturation level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don't be afraid to run out and make things happen.

Your outlook on life is slightly darker than most people's. You try to see things for what they are and face situations honestly. You'd rather get to the point than look for what's good.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In May I punched [ profile] cruentum in the arm (-10 points). In January I committed genocide... Sorry about that, [ profile] soberloki (-5000 points). Last Thursday I bought porn for [ profile] non_sequential (10 points). Last Monday I broke [ profile] timeagency's X-Box (-12 points). In April I signed my organ donor card (28 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-4984 points). For Christmas I deserve a lump of coal!


Write your letter to Santa! Enter your LJ username:

Guess genocide is kind of a no-no :(
There goes my Christmas

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, (even if we don't speak often or ever) please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and me.

It can be anything you want - good or bad - BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE.

When you're finished, post this little paragraph in your LJ and see what your friends come up with.

PS This is far too many days in a row with not nearly enough caffeine. Please amuse me, or I'll be forced to punch the next person in the throat who asks 'Why don't just just drink some more coffee then'

First: If you've been tagged, you must write your answers in your own LJ and replace any question that you dislike with a new, original question.
Second: Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

Finally I’m home after a long day at work. Time to boot up the old (spy) computer and check to make sure everything is right in the world. Well as right as it was when I checked last night anyway. Time for me to log on. Look away. That means you. YES YOU – cover your eyes!! *waits and watches*

Cut because not everyone is as crazy as I am )

Buckled under peer pressure again, had to do it...
