I'm such a sucker for these... especially when I'm on duty and can't leave my desk...

You are The Star

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Star is one of the great cards of faith, dreams realised

The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench your thirst, with a guiding light to the future. They might say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one.

What Tarot Card are You?

Theifed from [ profile] _enharmonic. Because music memes are fun :)

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post a line from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.

Ever so random... )

Stolen from a mess of people, but it just seems like fun :)

1. Ask me one fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandom specific or general.
2. Just one question, please, but it can (and perhaps should) have sub-parts.
3. That's it. It can be as normal or odd as you like.

Meme Time

Got bored, doing a meme...

"If you'd like to play, leave a comment. I'll give you a letter. Then you post ten words beginning with that letter in your journal and explain why they're important enough to make the cut."

And since [ profile] crooked_halo is 14 kinds of evil, she gives me X. This is so ridiculously hard but dammit I'm going to get 10 out of these!

1. Xylophone: This was the instrument everyone in my fourth grade music class fought to get to play on intrument day. And since I showed no aptitude for percussion, I took up the clarinet in band next year *lol*
2. X-Men: I love these movies so much and can't wait for the third. It feeds my Hugh Jackman crush.
3. Xerox: When I worked for the congressman, I was the only one in the office who could fix the dammed machine. Which led to the nickname of 'The Xerox Whisperer' that our volunteer coordinator dared to call me for one day. Why did it not last for another day? I also had control of the office internet and turned it off to his computer in retaliation. It made me smile.
4. Xena, Warrior Princess: Not ashamed to admit I was ridiculously addicted to this show when it first came out. And now I look back on it and go '... the hell?'
5. Xanadu: "In Xanadu did Kubla Khan/A stately pleasure dome decree:/Where Alph, the sacred river, ran/Through caverns measurless to man/Down to a sunless sea." The poem 'Kubla Khan' by Samuel Taylor Coleridge is one of my favorite poems and it's on my list of things to know by heart. As soon as I finish memorizing the Declaration of Independence.
6. X-Ray: I hate these things with a passion. Doesn't help that I'm claustrophobic and usually they're set up in very small spaces.
7. Xhosa: I took a History of Africa class as an undergrad and one of the languages we learned a bit of was Xhosa (pronouced with the 'xh' as a tongue click - so awesome). Coincidentally, my a capella group that same semester decided to sing a piece written for Nelson Mandela (who is part of the Xhosa heritage in South Africa) and F. W. de Klerk that had a second melody in Xhosa. So two of us sang the Xhosa lines, and let me say that's a fun language to sing it.
8. Xenophilia: "The attraction to anything foriegn or strange." I have such a yearning to travel and a love of anything not unlike myself, which I think it what drove me to study International Politics and World Religions as an undergrad.
9. Xerxes: One of those historical names that cracks me up each time I hear it. I don't know why, hell I don't remember anything more that he was the son of King Darius of Persia. But it makes me laugh each time we said it in history classes. Which, oddly enough, was more often than you'd think.
10: Xavier: I had a Cabbage Patch doll I loved as a child - looked like me and everything. And that was one of the names stamped on its butt. I'm grasping at straws for this one *lol*

*whew* Ha! Kelly, your evillness cannot deter me! I DID IT!

Because I'm bored...

Snagged from [ profile] stargazercmc

1. Put numbers in the boxes instead of x's (example: 1, 2, 3, 4, ...)
2. Repost as "I have lived through ____ of these 158 things."

I have lived through 98 of these 158 things.
Memes are fun )

Meme time

Meme time, cause I'm bored, and why not? And since I have three books on my nightstand, we'll do all three for giggles.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open it to page 161.
3. Find the tenth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

Book: "God Against the Gods: The History of the War Between Monotheism and Polytheism" by Jonathan Kirsch.
Quote: "If you ask a shopkeeper for change, he will argue with you about whether the Son is begotten or unbegotten," wrote theologian Gregory of Nyssa (c. 335-394) at the hottest moment of the crisis within Christianity over Arianism.

Book: "Fundraising Basics: A Complete Guide. Second Edition" by Barbara L. Ciconte and Jeanne G. Jacob.
Quote: The number of Internet addresses assigned to nonprofit groups increased from 500 in 1992 to 114,000 in 1998.

Book: "The Clans and Tartans of Scotland" by Robert Bain
Quote: The MacDonalds of Clanranald found an outlet for their warlike spirit by serving under the Marquess of Montrose in the 17th century.

I read really dorky books *lol*
