Meme time and some pimping.  
First things first...

Like Fringe?  Join fringeverse!  Yay!
Lots of pillows or just one?
Two - one for each side of the bed.

What kind of books do you read?
Sci-fi, historical fiction, true crime, speculative fiction, non-fiction about whatever I find interesting.  Sometimes YA and horror.  I'll read anything, really, but those are the genres I gravitate toward.

What are your neighbors like?
On one side is a family that's lived there for over fifteen years, the kind of people who will always lend you anything you need, and when you go over you can just knock on the front door and let yourself in.  On the other side, a divorced guy who drinks a lot and throws loud sports parties.

What's the best lesson you've ever learned?
"Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you've got to be kind."

Tell 3 things you have in your point of view right now.
An orange clove candle, an original Nintendo console, a piano.

What's your current fandom/obsession/addiction?
Probably still Babylon 5.

Do you prefer your junk food sweet, salty or savory?
Salty, for the most part.  I will never turn down chocolate, but if I'm nibbling on something I prefer salty.

What websites do you always visit when you go online?
Email, LJ, Oh No They Didn't, my friend's blogs, a couple of message boards.  Here pretty quick I'll be checking Awardsdaily every day (Oscar season!), and next year I'll be back to checking TheOneRing.net every day (The Hobbit!)

What was the last thing you bought?
A new pair of shoes.

What is your favorite flower?

What is the most difficult thing you have ever done?
Wow, hmm.  I guess trying to make a five-minute black-and-white MOS short film with sixty-year-old cameras on 16 mm with a partner who hadn't yet worked out how to turn the camera on was the most challenging task I've ever undertaken.  (BTW, that film blows.)

What was the last meal you ate?
Went to Perkin's with my Grandpa.  Roast beef; it was okay.

Do you want to learn another language?
I'm still chugging away on Latin.  I haven't worked on it as much in the last six months as I would have liked, but I'm doing okay.  Here pretty soon I'm going to start reading my first actual Latin text, and not just the sentences/paragraph exercises in the textbook.

Five things you want right now:
Fringe S2 on DVD, all of Babylon 5 on DVD, a new computer monitor, that Kinect thing (I don't even have an X-Box, so I guess that too?).

Find the closest book currently sitting near you and flip to page 36. What is the first sentence of the second paragraph?
Weeks later, back in the town of New Hampshire where I live, I put these questions to John Thorstensen, an astronomer at Dartmouth College.  --"A Short History of Nearly Everything," Bill Bryson.

What's something that someone said to you today that was amusing?
My youngest sister's new favorite meme is "I not mad tho." 

What are you looking forward to?
Well, I just saw Harry Potter, so I guess it's Tron!

Do you prefer boxers/briefs/tighty whities on a guy?

What is your favorite electronic accessory?
My computer.  *pets

Latin is a great language! Keep at it. :D I took it for a few years, though I've forgotten most of it now.

My sister took it in college, and I thought we'd be able to talk in what would essentially be our own secret language - because seriously, how many people out there know Latin? But she's forgotten most of it now, too, heh.

Gorgeous Fringe promo banner. Did you make it? (and can I snag it to use on my profile?)

Also holy crap did you just change your header? I swear I looked at it earlier, or yesterday and it was the regular J/D one. Or maybe I am just totally oblivious to everything!
Shannon: b5 john huhkungfuwaynewho on November 29th, 2010 12:31 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Yeah, it was a background image on a page of the official website so I stoled it and just added the text. Snag away!

Heh, I changed my header...Saturday? It was a Fringe header for a month or so before that. IDK? :)
ghanima sun: sillyghanimasun on November 30th, 2010 01:35 am (UTC)
Oh duh, I know what it was. I was looking at your blog earlier and it has the B5 header on it. Right? I think. Maybe *I'm so confused!*
Anyway yeah I remember the Fringe one now too, because I liked it a lot. And now the holiday one.

And just ignore me....
Shannon: bsg katee viperkungfuwaynewho on November 30th, 2010 01:16 pm (UTC)
That's it! I still have the J/D banner up over there - I need to change it to my holiday one, too.

You confused me too, hee!
