Depressing times in Fangirl Towers. I have just been to the dentist and shall be spending my entire salary on getting my teeth fixed. Boo.

In other news, let's have a bit of census meme. I love the census!

2011: 30. Living in a flat in London, working for the NHS and about to give all my money to the Sheen Dental Surgery.

2001: 20. I was actually in Manchester on census day, staying with my aunt and uncle. I don't know if my parents actually put me on their census form, because I wasn't really living at home, though I had been staying there a couple of months. This was about 6 months after leaving Oxford, and I'd spent most of that time living in London. Odd times.

1991: 10, living in Tunbridge Wells with my parents and little brother. I was in the fourth form of Kent College's prep school, probably psyching myself up for things like entrance exams, 11+, being a bridesmaid at my (other) uncle's wedding, and doing some kind of hideous project on the Iraq War (a large part of which I imagine my mother directed, as I was always useless at projects, especially ones the subject of which held zero interest for me).

1981: 7 months old, living in a house in Leeds with my parents. I doubt I was really doing much of anything except being adorable (natch).

1971: My parents hadn't quite met at census time. They would both have been in the fifth form at school, my mother at Abbeydale Girls' Grammar and my father at Abbeydale Boys' Grammar. They would meet that autumn in the sixth form. They both lived in Sheffield - Mummy in Greenhill with her parents and younger sister in the house where Grandma lives now, and Daddy up at Hallam Grange with his parents and two younger brothers.

I write like
P. G. Wodehouse

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





However, I apparently also write like JK Rowling, HG Wells, Vladimir Nabokov and Harry Harrison, depending on proferred paragraphs, so I am inclined to distrust it.


ETA: However, interestingly, I've put in five whole fics, and three came out James Joyce and two Stephen King.
chaletian: (glee sue sylvester)
So, I've been a bit quiet recently, and will continue to be so: new job means no internet (or time) during the day, and I'm too tired/have too much stuff to do in the evenings. Or something. Anyway, meme! (Saving me from having to actually structure my thoughts or my head in any way.)

You know how sometimes people on your friends list post about stuff going on in their lives, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration. One-word answers seldom help anyone out.


1. First name: Laura/Liss/Squeen/Miss Laura/whatever.

2. Age: 29 (fuck me, when did that happen?)

3. Location: London. Woo. I love London liek woah. I've lived here for just over nine years. More specifically, I live sort of on the Barnes/East Sheen border (like such a thing exists...)

4. Occupation: I work in healthcare, and mostly faff on computers in a nonchalant auditing kind of way.

5. Partner: Meh. I am a lone wolf. A LONE WOLF, people. Also a functional mute*.

6. Kids: None. I sort of like the idea in the abstract, but I don't know how I'd feel about the reality.

7. Brothers/sisters: I have a younger brother. His name's Chris, he's 27, he recently got engaged to his girlfriend, which is quite exciting, because Bex is ace.

8. Pets: None. I'm not big on animals, although I have perhaps foolishly promised Katie she may have one real cat when we're old.

9. List the 3-5 biggest things going on in your life:

1. Work. I recently left my job in a private hospital to return to the NHS, which I'm quite excited about. It's quite a bizarre mix of uber-concentration at new things and boredom at not really having a proper thing to do myself. Also, I have no desk yet so my wheely chair is my kingdom. I have good feelings about this job, but I seem to be getting up very early to get there and I'm really tired! Early nights for me.

2. CHRISTMAS!!! I love Christmas so, so much. I love the lights and the music and the smells and the presents and being allowed to watch A Muppet Christmas Carol (this weekend! this weekend when we put up the tree!) and going home to see my family and parties and clementines with leaves and just the whole exciting awesomeness of it all.

3. Pop culture. I love pop culture. TV and films and (these days) comic books and all that. Currently obsessing totally over Merlin, which is so adorable. I am a full on Gwen/Arthur fan, because they are ♥. But I'm watching loads of stuff: Supernatural (one has to get through it, after all), One Tree Hill (Naley!!!), White Collar, The Mentalist, Castle (OH NATHAN FILLION YOUR STUPID FACE), The Big Bang Theory (Katie and I sing the theme tune; it's highly amusing. Also: Sheldon!! ♥ ♥ ♥), HIMYM (when Katie watches it when I'm there - NPH, how are you so awesome?), NCIS (although Ziva seems to have gone quite bland these days), NCIS LA for the lolz, and probably random other crap too. Oh, TV... ♥

4. Katie, Katie, Katie, my tiny darling. Katie (as I can't imagine people haven't guessed) is my flatmate and WAS PUT ON THIS EARTH PURELY TO STOP ME KILLING MYSELF FROM MY OWN STUPIDITY. That is all. And she totally gives me all the attention I need (A LOT), which makes me happy. And she is full of win and comic genius and is a SKY FAIRY!!!!!!

5. My hair. Of course. I think the roots need dying again and my fringe needs a trim, but my hair's generally so amazingly good at the moment I'm scared to do it myself. Hmm. Quandary.

10. Parents. My parents are brilliant and very funny, and also incredibly annoying and spesh. My mother went to Abbeydale Girls' Grammar, and my father went to Abbeydale Boys' Grammar, and they met in the sixth form, started going out, went to university together and got married. My father likes going out walking. My mother has this thing for ironing. When Katie's parents have dinner with us, it's very chilled and laid back and nice. When my parents have dinner with us, there's lots of talking loudly and being ridiculous and taking the piss out of everyone and everyone being drama queens (mostly my father).

11. Who are some of your closest friends? Well, if we take a list and organise it from 1 to 10, where 1 is my best friend and 10 is someone I secretly hate... Quelle ridiculous question. [livejournal.com profile] weird_bird is my BFF. [livejournal.com profile] katie__pillar is the tiny flickering light in the otherwise tragic gloom of my soulless existence. I have lots of other chums too, all of whom are ace, otherwise I would not be friends with them, as I am a bitch, and do not really make any effort to be friends with people who aren't ace.


* That is a hilarious NCIS joke.

Gacked from my entire flist:

The problem with LJ: We all think we are so close, but really we know nothing about one another. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.

(a) I have been rubbish at asking people questions myself and (b) it's not like I don't tell everyone every single detail of my life ever, but please entertain me on this dreary Friday by allowing me to talk about myself!
chaletian: (buzzcocks all tracks preston)
Voice post meme! Which tragically sounds crap, either due to me or the phone, I am not sure...

1) What's your name?
2) How old are you?
3) Where are you from? Are you living there right now?
4) Is it cold where you are?
5) What's the time?
6) What are you wearing?
7) What was the last thing you listened to?
8) What was the last thing you ate?
9) What was the last thing you watched on tv?
10) What's your favorite tv show? Why?
11) Quick! Find a book, or something with text on it! Flip to a random page and read some of it! GO!
12) What was the last movie you saw? How was it?
13) Do YOU think you have an accent? Talk about that.

1. Write your username.
2. Write your 2 favourite bands/groups of the moment.
3. Write something you love, aka lemme see your heart.
4. Write the name of your favourite person of all time.

Under the cut, as massive jpgs tend to rile people... )

And coming up next, the voice post meme. Look forward to it, folks, I'm sure it will be a beauty. Katie and I have already been having a little chuckle about listening to each other's voices on LJ because we never hear them in real life (it's hilarious because IT'S NOT TRUE).

chaletian: (st awesome jim)
So, in light of this meme, let's hear it for me talking about things I don't usually talk about.

It was a short list.

1. Lightbulbs ([livejournal.com profile] kathrynw)

I do, in fact, have an opinion on lightbulbs. I am all for energy-saving lightbulbs. Energy saving is a good thing. It helps save the planet (I know, I know: what, at this juncture, does that expression even mean any more? Well, actually, in this instance, they use far less electricity to run, which means less energy has to be produced which means burning fewer fossil fuels (a) which are not a renewable source and therefore likely to run out at some stage and (b) the burning of which produces by-products that have a detrimental effect on the environment - I assume everyone knows that; I don't even know why I even bothered to type it out) and also save us money on our electricity bill. Woo. Everyone wins. However, sadly, energy lightbulbs also suck. They take forever to turn on properly and they aren't as bright even then. Also, the design is ugly. I love the old standard lightbulbs - there's something so iconic about them. I have a standard lightbulb in the lamp on my bedside table, mostly because I'm not sure energy ones would fit with the lampshade without making it look like the lampshade was giving birth to plastic intestines.

2. The Future ([livejournal.com profile] megaleena)

The future. Oh, the future. That's a pretty wide remit to ask someone to LJ about, Mog. In terms of the general future, mostly I think it's going to pobble along much as it has already. Maybe in a few years there'll be another massive leap forward in technology and we'll have flying cars, but to be completely frank with you, I don't think Britain's transport structure is up to the challenge (Britain: the country that didn't bother rebuilding and expanding on its Roman roads until the eighteenth century), so I don't really see that happening. Ditto also living on Mars; living in underwater towns; shuttle services to the moon for £37.99 (+ booking fees) with easyShuttle; Vulcans deciding we're technologically advanced enough to contact; Vogons deciding to destroy the planet to build a new hyperspace bypass; world peace. I do worry that this country is becoming increasingly authoritarian (though welcome the news that ID cards are off the agenda for the time being), but mostly I trust that the political pendulum will swing back the other way.

Alternatively, of course, we will have an actual apocalypse (likely causes: massive climate change [cf The Day After Tomorrow]; alien invasion (OK, that's less likely); massive collapse of financial systems; meteorite hitting the earth and Bruce Willis not being available to DRILL INTO ITS CORE to save us; zombies), in which I will soon die due to frequently mentioned inability to fight to the death for scattered remnants of Waitrose inventory.

For my own personal future: who knows? As Anne said, the future is a bend in the road up ahead. Maybe Captain Kirk will come through a time vortex, fall in love with me, and give me an alien STD. Maybe not. Maybe Chris will win the lottery and Katie and I will have a bookshop-cum-tearoom. Maybe I will die tragically young and everyone will weep at my funeral. Maybe I will stumble across the path of a stockbroker or doctor or Waterstones employee or IT advisor or something and get married and have generally neglected children. Maybe I will just chug along as I do now and have my little jobs and Katie and I will indeed end up as old women with scanty pensions and ceramic cats. Who knows? Or dares to dream? /Percy voice.

3. The Great Cooking Challenge 2009 ([livejournal.com profile] katherinea)

Shut up, Katherine! Actually, I've done a recipe or two that I haven't LJed about, but I can't remember them now! Maybe I will try again through the Autumn...

4. Are there really things I don't LJ about? ([livejournal.com profile] ungratefulwench)

Actually, I don't think this counts as a topic under the meaning of the act but I DON'T CARE; I will treat it as such. No, there aren't really things I don't LJ about. Basically, as everyone has doubtless noticed by now, I like the sound of my own voice (or the look of my own words - whatevs). I have lots of thoughts and they are, naturally, all AWESOME, and I like to share them, whether they're on religion or politics or books or TV or my hair or Jim Kirk and his tiny broken psyche or Spock and his emo life now that I've left him. Actually, you know what I don't LJ about? Other people. I should probably stop being so self-centred, but what is the diary concept about if not being self-centred? Answers on a postcard...
chaletian: (star trek ants)
So, I don't know that anyone's ever felt there are some CRUCIALLY IMPORTANT TOPICS OF LIFE about which I do not post, but on the off chance that that's the case, have this meme:

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post or comment about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, religious leanings*, thoughts on yaoi**, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, hairstyles***, sports, etc.




* I've always been so backwards at coming forwards on this topic.
** I have no thoughts on yaoi. I only barely know what it is.
*** THIS IS A TRAGIC ABSENCE ON MY LJ. Oh no, wait...

♥ Oh, Leverage. Leverage, you tiny, crazy show, we could not love any more. Fucking ridiculously awesome.

♥ I am feeling better. \o/ I spent today at home as well, and am not quite 100% (I made sausage and mash for our dinner, aka THE BEST MEAL EVER (excluding spag bol), and only got half way through 0.o ), but feeling better and plan to go to work tomorrow.

♥ To reiterate: Leverage, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! I LOVE HARDISON THINKING NATE WOULD BE COOL WITH THE LANDLORD THING. I LOVE NATE'S HAT. I LOVE ELIOT'S HAIR. I LOVE THAT NO-ONE WASHES UP. I LOVE PARKER. I LOVE SOPHIE'S ARPEGGIO.

♥ For tidiness' sake, here are further quotes from three remaining unguessed shows from my earlier TV meme:

1. You never see a hearse in here in daylight. Slip in under the cover of darkness like body snatchers. The sun comes up and everyone’s trying to avoid looking at the empty bowl of Frosties on the breakfast table.

2. Precisely. Gamma rays, which produce images of – I’m having a baby – and can be expressed in numerical form. Tiny, pink, little baby. Moving on to diagnostic preferences in, let’s say soft-tissue trauma…Who’s the daddy? I think you’ll find that I am the daddy.

3. Yeah, Tang's minions, they're everywhere! He's like the dark Lord Sauron from Lord of the Rings. Only instead of the ring of power he's taken over control of the assistant manager-ship.
chaletian: (charlie brown tv)
Woo! Giant TV meme. Guess the show...

1. You’ve gotta have style! Far better to go out in a flash at the wheel of your space capsule here than spend another couple of years timidly put-putting up and down the promenade, at the wheel of your 1959 Hillman Minx while your brain-dead partner fiddles with cardigan buttons.

2. Oh, all right, pull yourself together you cretinous fuckwit! What sort of a man hides in other people’s coats, rocking and whinging to themselves? I’ll tell you what sort of a man – a self-centred, egotistical wankpot!

3. By day, they churn butter and worship according to their own beliefs, and by night they solve crimes. The West Wing

4. After all these years among humans, you still haven't learned to smile. Star Trek (TOS)

5. Yes, and while she may live up to the not-a-murderer requirement for enrollment, she is a troublemaker, destructive to school property and the occasional student. And her grade point average is enough to... I'm sorry. Another tingle moment. Buffy

6. I want to be remembered when I'm dead. I want books written about me. I want songs sung about me. And then, hundreds of years from now, I want episodes of my life to be played out weekly at half past nine by some great heroic actor of the age. Blackadder

7. I shot him. In the leg. Stargate Atlantis

8. No rest for the wicked fighters. Through storm and rain. Heat. Famine. Deep, painful, gnawing hunger... I go. Angel

9. No seriously! Very sweet. You love me! No, you love me. You can't take it back. There is no take backs. Battlestar Galactica

10. I just figured after Ava, there'd be more angst, more droopy music, and staring out the rainy windows. Supernatural

11. And they have much to be concerned about. There's always the threat of an attack by, say, a giant space dragon—the kind that eats the sun every 30 days? It's a nuisance, but what can you expect from reptiles? Did I mention that my nose is on fire, and that I have 15 wild badgers living in my trousers? Babylon 5

12. There is a perception in the press, never clearer than in this article, that I'm not cool. Now, where do you think this perception comes from? Sports Night

13. Hey, I'm a rational empiricist all the way, unless you talk to my mother. Then I'm Lutheran. Bones

14. One small hobbit? So thought Frodo Baggins, my friend; so thought Frodo Baggins!

15. What is with you and naked nannies in the pool? One Tree Hill

16. Did you end up over-educated and unemployable like you said in the yearbook? Wonderfalls

17. Strictly speaking, it's the fifteenth New York since the original, so that makes it New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New New York. Doctor Who

18. Oh, you mean my pilot's license? That's out back in the Cessna. Or perhaps you're refering to my license to kill. Revoked. Trouble at the Kazakhstan border. I could give you the details but then I'd have to kill you, which I can't do because my license to kill has been revoked. Psych

19. Eggs! The living legend needs eggs! Firefly

20. You are an adolescent, oversexed, whore-monger with the sensitivity of a head of cabbage! Studio 60

WTF Yorkshire? Seriously, WTF? Land of me, land of my forebears, what were you thinking? Oh, BNP & all those who voted for you, you tiny cocks.

♥ In other trag news, remember that time when I was outraged that darling Jade had never heard of the Shat? This is much worse. I was sharing with my office (natch) the wonders of the story wherein I dump Spock, and the new temp HAD NEVER EVEN HEARD OF SPOCK!!! 0.o I don't even know how this is possible! How is this possible, flist? How does someone get to be so insulated from the icons of popular culture? I am agog, I am aghast...

♥ My computer at work has the RAM of a SQUIRREL. I tried to UNDERLINE a cell in Excel, and in attempting to undertake that arduous task, THE ENTIRE MACHINE CRASHED. My life has been very difficult today, as you may have noticed. However, I have done the stats Richard wanted, and finally, finally managed to install a trial of MapPoint on Joy's computer, so I could do the dinky map to go with them. Yay me.

♥ I watched Kingdom last night. I had forgotten how amusing it was. Oh, Sir Stephen, how do I love thee?

♥ And to end, a bit of a meme off [livejournal.com profile] katie__pillar:

Rules:
01. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LiveJournal.
02. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
03. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

1. Notburga

Ha! Notburga was a wench in olde Austria who... probably did something. She had a sickle. In the Achensee area, she's all over the shop, with statues and what have you. We collected Notburga points (to the extent where any female figure wielding farming equipment was debated over, as I recall). Awesomeness.

2. vegan lasagna

Weeellll, I can make it (not very well, these days, I fear: the last couple of times have been decidedly sub par)! Actually, its best outing was in Austria, when Cat provided moral support and advice over the white sauce. It was a triumph of culinary skill, given that the flat we rented was equipment with plates, cutlery and one massive steel frying pan.

3. Tirolervolkskunstmuseum (aka angels on sticks & camels in hats)

A hilarious museum in Innsbruck that featured about fifty million wardrobes and, as Xanthe says, angels on sticks (whence comes, I rather think, the urge to put everything on sticks). Also wooden rooms. I said something funny (natch), and Rosie fell crack onto her knees. It was highly amusing. I imagine between us we scooped up a few Notburga or nun points (incidentally, saw three in the Natural History Museum taking pictures of the diplodocus) whilst there.

4. 20 questions

Is this Who Am I? A sterling game, oft played by me and Katie. I also spent a bus journey playing a very high-minded version with Xanthe - I think one of the people was Beatrice Webb...

5. Bath

I really like Bath. It has lovely historical bits, and nice shops, and is a fine place to visit. We went a while ago - actually, when was that? - and it were lovely. Need to go again, actually...

Wooo.

Time to guess the show... *g*

1. It was more than just a comet because of what it brought to his life: direction, beauty, meaning.

2. Oh, my guess is, he’ll take the Trans-Canada Highway to New Brunswick, then maybe catch the 1 and take the scenic route along the coast of Maine. 95 through New Hampshire to the Mass Pike, and then cut over to the Merritt Parkway round Milford.

3. I need to know my partner is a cop and not a con. Anything else you carrying from the old days? Sharpened toothbrush, lightbulb full of bleach?

4. Dude, you're confusing reality with porn again.

5. I can't believe you actually thought that text was from me. It lacked all nuance, my signature mocking tone, and was utterly devoid of emoticons.

6. Let's roll that back please...I believe I spotted a tumescence at 3:21:04. Tell me what you think.

7. I'm putting myself in the mind of an obsessive-compulsive in order to figure out where I might conceal a memory-enhancing, psychosexual proxy.

8. You’ve reached the future leader of mankind, may take me a little while to get back to you, but leave a message anyway.

9. Me, I'm unreliable. I've got these evil hand issues.
