Happy New Year everyone! May 2013 bring things you've wanted your way!

I can't seem to make myself post anything I've been meaning to, but I'm making an effort to think about it! The sun came out today, so we took the kids to the beach for the first time this summer - and everyone else had the same idea, obviously! Our favourite local beach was PACKED with cars - before we even got halfway down the metal road to it, a guy stopped his car to tell us not to bother! There were cars lining both sides of the narrow road and it was completely obvious there wasn't a point trying to find parking. So we headed for another beach past it - less well known - and it too was pretty busy, though we managed to park on the metal road and walk down without it taking an aeon. Not the world's greaest beach, but very pleasant and swimming was nice. Sat in the sun for a while after that and just lazed, enjoying the day. Home now and Hubby's got the BBQ underway and I'm sitting out on my brand new deck *beams* writing this. Very very nice, I must say!

I did get a nice swag for Christmas - all things I like/love/want/need, so very happy! I have a photo but I haven't uploaded it. Will post about that when I've sorted the pics. Also need to post reno photos and vids up to 23/12/12, which I'll do eventually too.

In the meantime, here's a writery meme that's going around )

Both [livejournal.com profile] halfdutch and [livejournal.com profile] janie_tangerine did this meme, and of course I can't resist anything musical!

Open your iTunes / Winamp player.
Put to shuffle mode.
Find pictures of the first 25 artists. If repeated, skip it.

Have your friends list guess the 25 artists.

Several people have done this one lately and I've left a few words around (different ones as it happens), so here, try it out on me if you feel so inclined:

I'm running a test to see who's reading my posts. So, if you read this, leave me a one-word comment about your day that starts with the third letter of your LJ USERNAME. Only one word please. Then repost so I can leave a word for you. Don't just post a word and not copy - that's not as much fun.

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] crickets, whose journal I apparently didn't comment on (unless it was below 3 that is!)

Who comments the most on this journal? )

A Meme -

The Rules:

1. People who have been tagged must write the answers on their blog and replace any question they dislike with a new, original question.

2. Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you. Who cares? Are the meme police gonna chase me if I refuse?

Q & A )

Pimpage!

Okay, time to get your drabble hats on! [livejournal.com profile] demonqueen666 is running a Drabblethon for Sweetest Day again this year. The deal is you can leave a prompt for one drabble and you can fulfil a prompt for someone. You don't have to write to receive, nor do you have to receive to write. It's all in the name of goodness and giving. The master post is here, so come on! Make it fun by joining in now with a prompt! ;-)

I write like
Stephen King

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!




I tried a few different snippets and got this three times, so let's go with it. My gayest bit had me as Raymond Chandler though; what's with that? I wonder about the Stephen King though too... none of it was horror! ;-P

OK, OK, OK!

I'm not usually so full of flail... but from being a little on the depressed side the other day, I am suddenly way, way up! And it's due MAJORLY to my Lost flisters who have jumped into the Lost Love Meme I began a couple of days ago, and said some incredible, wonderful, gorgeous things about all their friends (please keep going back; there are more names up since yesterday and they need more love too!). Man, I love this fandom. :D

Otherly, what's good is:

1. One more day of work before I have a WHOLE WEEK off.
2. Not being tired at work despite having trouble getting to sleep last night and only getting about four hours sleep.
3. Finally getting 'The White Road' by Lynn Flewelling from the library in time for our road trip! WOO! *pumps fist* (the newest book I've ever had from the library, by the way!)
4. ROAD TRIP! Leaving Wednesday (NZ time) to head north for a couple of days.
5. Lost Luau starts today! ;-) I'm going to be away from my computer for a couple of days, but I'm going to be inspired, I just know it!

*hugs* to all my flist just for being all round fantastic!

PS: Happy Belated 4th of July to all of my American friends. I meant to post about this earlier but I got carried away reading all the magnificent comments on the love meme (390 comments and counting! ♥ ♥ ♥) I hope you all had a wonderful Independence Day!

Hi everyone... I was feeling a little down and I thought that maybe a good way to get my spirits back up, and also as a bit of a Luau preparation, you'd all like to help me celebrate our friendships. This is pretty much for all the Losties on my flist, but even if you're not and you feel like joining in, I'll be happy to have you here.

Come on in and join in the fun! )

Meme via [livejournal.com profile] mrs_sean_bean:

Put "I've seen ____ of these 168 movies" in the subject line and repost. If you've seen over 85 movies, you have no life. Mark the ones you've seen. There are 168 movies on this list.

Many many movies )

Apparently, I have a life. Hmm, wonder where it is *looks under the cushions*

because I need some light relief. Stolen from several friends.

I can do... )

I really need to do a proper entry, but instead you're getting this meme thingy, snagged from [livejournal.com profile] gottalovev, cos it amused me:

Google the phrase "(Your name) looks like" and find the best ones from the first page of results. DONT FORGET TO PUT IT IN QUOTES, otherwise it won't work:

1. Hal looks like a big furry baby in a box.
2. Hal looks like the bad guy, and Nick steps in
3. Hal: Looks like hieroglyphics to me.
4. Hal. “Looks like Dave’s safety cord has malfunctioned. Goodbye Dave.”
5. Hal looks like a twit with his pluto hat
6. Hal looks like a cross between the editor of Granta and the guy across the Formica table who owns the Harley Davidson outside.
7. HAL, looks like someone is entertaining himself.
8. Hal looks like he wants to have a go at it.

Okay, I cheated, I did two pages, as some of the second page were funnier to my mind! And I used hal, cos I didn't expect haldoor to come up with anything (and it didn't). Didn't really feel like using my real first name, and this is kinda part of my surname, so...
haldoor: Kaige and I like to jump off bridges one after the other; not always in the same order (eric-pete-held together)
I couldn't resist this one... it's so up my alley! Nabbed from [livejournal.com profile] halfdutch although she had more modern ones that I couldn't guess for peanuts, being an old dinosaur-fart type myself! I haven't got anything much really new, cos I'm like that, but see how you get on! Answers forthcoming when guessing is complete!

Not sure if I should give some musical clues... these are probably far too easy for most of my flist though!

Guess these musical acts just from the pics )

[Edit] We now have all the answers! The winners were [livejournal.com profile] gregoria44, [livejournal.com profile] kitty_trio, [livejournal.com profile] bachlava, [livejournal.com profile] azdiva, [livejournal.com profile] mrs_sean_bean, [livejournal.com profile] lostjane and [livejournal.com profile] marius2045! Congratulations one and all! *hands out generous supplies of chocolate fish*

Thanks for playing, those who did!

Comments will be screened until we have answers!

And no doubt have pissed off far too many people lately, but that's what happens, eh? I'd have more RL friends if I was nicer. But sarcasm must be carefully nurtured to be appreciated.

So I'm inflicting a ten things meme on you to annoy you all even more. Think I got it from Ellel, but I can't be sure. MOAG. Apologies. )

This means dinner will be late. Sorry kids.

But... this was nicked from [livejournal.com profile] elise_509. Thanks, it was fun, even if I wished the questions at the end were a little more varied. 'Twas obviously written by someone who likes BANDS (rather than MUSIC) for different reasons to me. I'd have liked more questions like "Does the lead singer's voice melt you in a puddle of goo in any song? Which one?" or something similar *snigger* but I did my best. Seriously, how does one remember 30 years ago? I can barely remember yesterday sometimes! (as most of you know!)



Long music meme )

It's christmas, and I got this via e-mail from [livejournal.com profile] amyurban, so I figured, what the hell...

Silly answers to silly questions for Xmas )

...so don't expect lucidity, or even for any sense to be made.

[livejournal.com profile] ellel tagged me for this six things meme (write six things about yourself and tag six people). Well, I'm no tagger as most of you know. Do it if you feel inclined... or don't. YOU decide.

The six things I'm about to fish out of the air )

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] therosewilde:

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, (even if we don't speak often) 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 and feel like it, post this little paragraph on your LJ and be surprised (or mortified) about what people DON'T ACTUALLY remember about you.

And this has nothing to do with anything, but...
