How common are my interests?

Wow. As a content classification geek, I find this really cool: (more…)

Come Pick Me Up

Saturday, October 2nd, 2004

Every time I see that meme with all the “would you… go out with me? let me kiss you? etc” questions and how it ends with “would you come pick me up at 3 AM…”, I get an earworm of the Ryan Adams’ song “Come Pick Me Up.” I love that song, but with that simple melody repeating so many times through the chorus, it’s a damn sticky earworm.

Come pick me up
Take me out
Fuck me up
Steal my records
Screw all my friends
They’re all full of shit
With a smile on your face
And then do it again
I wish you would

Cute meme!

Stolen from teal7:

Comment anonymously on this entry with three clues about your identity. I will try to guess who you are. With more than 100 people on my friends list, I will guess horribly wrong. Each time I do so, please give me one more anonymous clue.

(Oh, and if you can make the clues things I might plausibly actually know about you, that’d no doubt help a fair bit. :-) )

Too tempting to pass up - IMDb movie lists

Borrowed from firecat. Now you’ll all have a hint of how many years of my life have been spent watching movies. :-)

IMDB 100 best/worst movies

Palmistry, anyone?

Borrowed from wispfox, the original link is here.

You have a good imagination, and often exhibit sensitivity to others.

You have so many interests that you may have trouble deciding which ones to pursue.

You are a warm hearted person, with much love to give. You probably like children, and exhibit many playful characteristics. Sometimes you feel jealous, and must avoid becoming overly possessive in your relationships.

Sometimes you feel jealous, and must avoid becoming overly possessive in your relationships. [Ed. note: They even said it twice. Weird.]

There may be times in your life when you give in to feelings of sadness or depression. [Ed. note: This certainly isn’t true as a rule, but if it’s a prediction, I guess we’ll see.

You are likely to make decisions based on intuition or feelings rather than intellect.

Although you have ambition, you do not always exert the energy necessary to be successful.

You have a basically strong constitution, and should enjoy good health most of the time.

A major illness or setback is predicted near mid-life. You have the ability to recover from this.

There is a strong intuitive side to your nature, which may border on psychic or mystical ability.

You are a social butterfly. :-)

My user name repeats that phrase three times, so it must be true.

Friday5, part 2

Friday, November 7th, 2003

1. How many products do you use to get ready in the a.m.?

My usual weekday routine includes: shampoo, conditioner, face scrub, body wash (4 for shower); deodorant, tangerine essential oil (2 post-shower); moisturizer, concealer, foundation, pressed powder, contour blush, highlight blush, loose powder, eyebrow pencil, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, lip moisturizer (13 for make-up); mousse, hairspray (2 for hair). 21 total for weekday mornings.

Oh, wait! And contacts first thing, so contact lens solution is involved. And then I brush my teeth right afterward, so I have to count the toothpaste. Make that 23.

On weekends, I typically skip several steps in the weekday make-up ritual and I put my hair up in a twist — no mousse or hair spray required. Call it 15, even though it varies.

2. What’s your can’t-live-without product of girliness?

Hmm. I don’t think of deodorant as a product of girliness, so I’ll assume that’s a given. Lipstick maybe.

3. How much time do you spend on girliness?

I head for the locker room sweaty and needing a shower between 7:15 and 7:25 and am usually at my desk anywhere between 8:00 and 8:20 — and that’s undressing, weighing myself, showering, doing full makeup and hair (including a good blow-drying), putting on jewelry, and dressing. So the total routine varies between 30 minutes and an hour. Girl talk in the locker room often slows me down. ;-)

4. What do you wear to feel even more girly?

Thongs, but usually only when I wear pants so there’s no Visible Panty Line.

5. What’s a secret girly thing you do?

None of it is secret anymore. ;-)

Shaktiqueen made me do it.

Oh, and I just had to use this orange-y user icon. It’s the most Halloweeny one I have.

1. What are you wearing right this minute?

Baggy orange sweater, long baggy black skirt, tall fitted black boots. Very Halloweeny.

2. What are you doing tonight?

Going to see some friends play and maybe out to a street party, but it’s $15 per person and I doubt it’ll be worth it.

3. What is your costume?

Naughty school girl: white button-down shirt unbuttoned enough to reveal a purple push-up bra, and tied at the waist; black-and-white plaid pleated skirt; and either barely-there strappy red heels (which look hot, if a bit sophisticated for a school girl) or white thigh-hi stockings and shoes to be determined. I can’t decide. Oh, and pigtails, of course.

(Yeah, I know, Bay Area bifolk have seen this outfit before. So sue me. I’m in a different part of the country — I can recycle my costumes. :-) )

4. When did you stop Trick or Treating?

I don’t remember for sure. I know I was still doing it in college, but we were starting to get nasty looks from people. Still got candy though.

5. Do you or have you ever believed in the Great Pumpkin?

What’s not to believe in?
