If you saw me in a police car, what would you think I got arrested for? Answer, then if you want, post to your own journal and see how many crimes you get accused of.

Take a picture of yourself right now. Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair...just take a picture. Post that picture with NO editing. Post these instructions with your picture.

Photobucket

My hair is down because I have a headache. Blarg. Also I have horrendous dark circles under my eyes, but the florescent lighting is being kind to me tonight.

nirix5: (me!)
I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. I read your journals, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you for your interest in my words.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself? Any old thing at all, the more trivial and fascinating, the better. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...they enjoy nose-picking on balmy summer evenings, and have a giant birthmark shaped like a wildebeest on their right buttock."

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal and see what gems of knowledge appear.

Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] kcountess:

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?

Wrapping paper. I like to wrap boxes.

2. Real or Artificial tree?

Real! Always real. They smell sooooooooo good. And Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without dad shaving the stump down to the size of the holder, cursing the whole time and getting pine chips all over the living room, and then taking a nap in the middle of it all.

3. When do you put up the tree?

We're pretty traditional, and actually put up and decorate our tree on Christmas Eve, though we might get it a week before (it stays out behind the garage.)

4. When do you take the tree down?

On Ephiphany, January 6th.

5. Do you like Eggnog?

Yes I do. Mmmmmm.

6. Favorite Gift you received as a child?

My first good pair of skates, and a late season Sailor Moon subbed tape. I cried for a while that morning, I was so happy.

7. Do you have a nativity scene?

Yep. And all the grass is slowly falling off of it. The weird thing is that we don't put baby Jesus in it until Christmas morning ("Santa" puts him there.) All through Advent, Jesus lives in my mother's china cabinet, in front of the salmon platter.

8. Hardest person to buy for?

Everyone.

9. Easiest person to buy for?

Everyone.

10. Worst Christmas gift ever received

Never got one I didn't like or wasn't grateful for!

11. Christmas Cards?

I'm awful with them. It makes me hate myself.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie?

Dogma, Shaun of the Dead, and Big Trouble in Little China are old favorites. Of course, they're not Christmas per se, but they're what my family watches on Christmas. I'd also have to go with Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. SHEER WIN.

13. When do you start shopping for Christmas?

*sheepishly* Christmas Eve.

14. Have you ever "recycled" a Christmas present?

Nope!

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?

Chinese food! and marzipan.

16. Clear lights or colored or both on the tree?

I like clear or gold-tone lights, but my mother loves colored ones, so we have those on the tree every year. Not my favorite, but whatever. They're still pretty :)

17. Favorite Christmas Song?

All the old standbys. The Christmas Song, O Holy Night (Nsync acapella version WHEE!), the entire Nutcracker Suite, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays (more Nsync...)

Although, I would like to state for the record that I HATE HATE HATE Bruce Springsteen's version of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" and "Christmas in Killarney".

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home?

Our family is all far away, so we've never really traveled to see them at Christmas. Now I've gotten used to being home and not going anywhere other than the Chinese buffet or the movies on Christmas.

19. Can you name Santa's Reindeer?

Bah.

20. Do you have an Angel or a Star on top of your tree?

We have a Puerto Rican star. It's pretty nutsy. I'll try to post pics of it this year.

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?

One present (pajamas or an ornament for the tree) on Christmas Eve, and the rest in the morning.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year?

Crass commercialization. I want a Green Gables Christmas, dammit!

23. Favorite Christmas tradition?

Until this year it's been Chinese food and zombie movies, but this year we're giving up presents, so I'm going to go ahead and say that :)

24. Family member you always try to stay away from during the holidays?

None!

25. Do you attend any actual religious services in celebration?

We go to midnight mass every year.

Ack. When the fuck did it get to be one o'clock?

Maybe that's why I'm kind of hungry.

Today has been underwhelming, so far. My biggest angsty moment came when I discovered that the pair of socks I'd just matched up (after them being odd for months) had a hole in one of the toes, and I couldn't wear them. So I put on the bunny socks I got on Seventh Avenue last November, in honor of biology class tonight.

I also bought an overpriced blueberry muffin and some batteries at Big M's, since nothing else was open.

When your parents tell you that six in the morning is far too early to blast the Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack, don't believe them. Turn it up.

"4th of July, Asbury Park"
(because who the fuck is going to stop me, anyway?)

Sandy, the fireworks are hailin' over little Eden tonight
Forcin' a light into all those stoney faces left stranded on this warm July
Down in town the circuit's full with switchblade lovers so fast, so shiny, so sharp
As the wizards play down on Pinball Way on the boardwalk way past dark
And the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open like Latin lovers on the shore
Chasin' all them silly New York virgins by the score

Sandy, the aurora is risin' behind us
This pier lights our carnival life forever
Love me tonight for I may never see you again
Hey Sandy girl, my baby

Now the greasers they tramp the streets or get busted for sleeping on the beach all night
Them boys in their high heels, ah Sandy, their skins are so white
And me I just got tired of hangin' in them dusty arcades bangin' them pleasure machines
Chasin' the factory girls underneath the boardwalk where they promise to unsnap their jeans
And you know that tilt-a-whirl down on the south beach drag
I got on it last night and my shirt got caught
And they kept me spinnin'
I didn't think I'd ever get off

Oh Sandy, the aurora is risin' behind us
This pier lights our carnival life on the water
Runnin', laughin' 'neath the boardwalk with the boss's daughter
I remember, Sandy girl, now baby

Sandy, that waitress I was seeing lost her desire for me
I spoke with her last night, she said she won't set herself on fire for me anymore
She worked that joint under the boardwalk, she was always the girl you saw boppin' down the beach with the radio
The kids say last night she was dressed like a star in one of them cheap
little seaside bars and I saw her parked with Loverboy out on the Kokomo
Did you hear the cops finally busted Madam Marie for tellin' fortunes better than they do
For me this boardwalk life is through
You ought to quit this scene too

Oh Sandy, the aurora is risin' behind us
This pier lights our carnival life forever
Oh love me tonight and I promise I'll love you forever

~ Halcyone Naomi Ashford.

2)If you were born outside of your era, when would you want to be born and why?

12) What's the best part of your favorite movie?
~ Best part in "Last of the Mohicans" (toss-up): When Cora asks Hawkeye, "What are you looking at, sir?" and he replies, "I'm looking at you miss," and that scene in the fort between Colonel Munro, Duncan, and Cora where they're arguing about Hawkeye.

Leave a comment with your name if you want to know what I really think of you, and I'll reply and tell you. No lies, all honesty.

You can do the same in your LJ, of course.
nirix5: (Default)
Invent a memory of me and post it in the comments. It can be anything you want, so long as it's something that's never happened. Then, of course, post this to your journal and see what people would like to remember of you, only the universe failed to cooperate in making it happen so they had to make it up instead.
