Woo!  The wind is flipping HOWLING tonight!  Sounds like an express train roaring past my house.  The eaves are creaking and the lights are flickering, but I'm toasty and cozy with a cheap shiraz at hand and a funny fun meme to occupy my mind, courtesy of [personal profile] moonphased.  Here goes...

A meme!  )
Bwahaha!   There's my list!   :-)

 A few notes:

-I have new art stuff to show off, but this cold front is screaming "You do NOT want to even TRY to come out here and photograph something right now...I'll blow your masks away and freeze your flipping fingers off!".   So maybe later. 

-The Sabres SO ROCK.  The game against the Rangers tonight...wooo!    

-My husband is a fine fine person.   He brought me movies, chocolate (Dove ice cream...oh my), and cheap wine tonight.  On such a cold windy night, is there anything finer?   Well yeah, but I can't go there 'cause I think my daughter reads my journal now...

-Battlestar Galactica...the SciFi channel series.  OMG that series is pure gold.  I love every minute of every episode.  The character development and the writing are so mature and compelling.  If you haven't seen it yet, go rent the first few seasons...TOTALLY worth sitting down and watching. 

- My brother and his girlfriend are going to see the Barenaked Ladies in Vegas tonight.  But I'm so pleased with my Sabres and my chocolate and my cheap wine that I don't even feel a BIT jealous!   Life is funny, sometimes.

And that's about it for now.   See how much I love you all?    I spent a chunk of my Saturday night yapping here in LJ, just because I care.  :-) 

I was tagged like a Mutual of Omaha water buffalo by [profile] zipis1...

 I hope those were sufficiently weird...I think your random facts should be entertaining, revealing, and embarrassing if at all possible.  I won't tag anyone, as I think we've all done this meme before.  BUT if  anyone feels like commenting and telling me random stuff about themselves I think that'd be just fine, 'cause it's a great way to get to know everyone just a little bit better.  :-)

In other news:  I was up all night with Charlotte, watching anime. 

Aaaand that's all I have.   :-)

Hey, neato! Normally, online quizzes are about as interesting and accurate as horoscopes ("Whut Anime Character R U??") but this one is actually informative. Borrowed from quirkyslayer .

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

The Midland
The Northeast
The South
The West
North Central

That's just really really interesting to me. Take it if you have the time...I'm curious about what everyone's regional dialects are.

In other news; if you're looking for something to do this weekend, go see "The Prestige". It's disturbing and clever and very very entertaining. If you liked movies like "Momento" and "Prime", you'll love this one. For thinkers only, though. Don't go expecting to check your brain at the door.

In other news I was up all night in a pissy mood, making stuff.  S'funny how being in a bad mood can really get me rolling creatively-speaking.  I did a wall hanging, another plaque but this time smaller and no dragons (!!!).  Koi, of all things.  I'll have to get pictures and share.  Later...later...

This meme is spreading like a sexually transmitted disease.    Accept your shot of penicillin like a good f-list, okay?  (Thanks, [personal profile] moonphased !  Next time I read your LJ entry I'm going to make you wear a condom...).

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog 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. 


"I gather from your reaction," says the Main Guy, "that this has been of interest to you as well."

Waterhouse wonders what his reaction was.  Did he grow fangs?  Drool into his coffee?

From "Cryptonomicon" by Neal Stephenson.  He is one long-winded bastard.  I don't know how I managed to luck out and get the shortest sentences in the book.  I was really hoping page 123 might be part of his long description of Randy Waterhouse's method for eating Captain Crunch (which kills me because I have my own methods for eating certain breakfast cereals)...but that comes much later in the story. 

I'm avoiding work again.  :-/  Not good.  I'm making those things that I hate having to make ([profile] rumdiculous , I know you can guess what!) and so I'm procrastinating.  I'm just postponing the inevitable.  *sigh*

And!  In other news...Hurricane Chris?  That's so...I don't know...polysexual?  Is that a word?  I mean, Christopher or Christine...but Chris?  Could go either way.  It's like Hurricane Pat.  Yay for androgynous weather events.

This is not my fault (I blame Moonphased).

Do not read. )
