The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed. Well, let's see.

1.) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2.) Italicize those you intend to read.
3.) Underline those you LOVE.
4.) Put an asterisk next to the books you'd rather shove hot pokers in your eyes than read.

I don't update for a month and then I post with a meme. What?

The sad part is I have things to say, but they all drift into the internet ether by the time I log on. And all my interesting stories are about the aquarium. Is anyone interested in hearing fish drama? 'Cause I can hook you up.

Ah, well.

The Movie Meme, last seen at [livejournal.com profile] estepheia's.

1. Pick 15 of your favourite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions. Totally cheating, you dirty cheaters....

Here we go! )
snarklyboojum: (care to tango?)
I normally don't post memes, but I really liked this one. I worked in a children's library for almost a year, so this is something I'm a little...familiar with, shall we say. ;)

100 Books Every Child Should Read meme, gacked from [livejournal.com profile] cincodemaygirl:

Neil Gaiman posted a link to the Telegraph's list of 100 books every
child should read. I've bolded the ones I've read, and my comments are in italics.

Behold it! )
snarklyboojum: (three of the world's greatest minds)
I have RL stuff to talk about, but don't really feel like delving into it at the moment so back to what you've come to expect: a meme! This one from [livejournal.com profile] ignited.

Comment and I'll give you three interests on your list and three of your icons to explain.

The interests and icons she chose... )
snarklyboojum: (care to tango?)
Work lately has remained...frustrating. I don't think there's a single person who's happy to be there anymore, except maybe the director who'd be happy if a fucking blizzard landed on his head.

Which reminds me: goddamn but it's cold out there. You all may laugh at the new hat I put away for Christmas, but hey - when you haven't been warm since September anything warm is promising. (Plus, I do love it so. Lookit the little flaps! Hee!)*

I finally saw Happy Feet and was pleasantly surprised. I think what I liked best was that they used facts about how emperor's behave (using sound to find and keep a mate, for instance) and turned them into a rockin' dance number with kickass choreography. And the soundtrack is one of the best I've ever heard, seriously. The only slow song in the whole set is K.D. Lang's "Golden Slumber"; it's jarring between all the excitement, but in a good way.

Can you believe my mother didn't know you had to cut the rings on plastic pop can holders? I grew up among a veritable smorgasbord of SAVE THE PLANET teachings at my elementary school, and I ranted and raved at her for five minutes when I caught her throwing one away un-snipped the other day. When Lovelace appeared onscreen (he's seeing lights and hearing voices because it's CUTTING OFF THE CIRCULATION TO HIS BRAIN) she glanced at me nervously and I could feel the guilt pouring from her. I patted her hand and raised my eyebrow in the universal "mother nature forgives you but don't fuck it up" gesture.

The ending made me feel guilty that I work in an aquarium. But... but... ours are enriched and happy and having babies! And... um... *flails* Okay. I shall now call every penguin Dave and wish him "good morning".

Aaaaaand and icon meme, last seen on [livejournal.com profile] grrliz's journal, because I cannot resist them. )


* This is the one and only time I've been in an American Eagle - I saw the hat in the window and couldn't help myself. I also purchased this, and was sorely tempted to buy some of these, too, although I already have three pairs. Glittons, as we've discussed previously, are the shit.

I don't normally post these sort of things, but I tried it on a lark and the answers were so appropriate it was a little freaky. Not anywhere near [livejournal.com profile] musesfool's psychic iPod, but close. So I give you the results of The Soundtrack of My Life Meme, seen everywhere but most recently at [livejournal.com profile] kyasuriin's journal.

Out of over 1300 songs... )
snarklyboojum: (FISHY!  run fishy run!)
Guess who finally has a digital camera? That's right, baby! Whoo!

*takes pictures of my mom, dog, left nostril, etc*

Quick, someone tell me something to take and post a picture of, so I can figure out how this thing works. 'Cause the nostril pic was rather disgusting. What was that old ass meme? Tell me to take a picture of anything and I'll do it. Or something like that... (*imagines all the bad porn places that statement could lead to*)

Oh, and they want me to be a pirate at work. )

Coincidence, or plan of attack? Hmmm... )

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] thoughtdreams, I have rediscovered the crack that is Artpad. This site is like a traffic accident - you just can't look away.

So, I'm gonna resurrect an old meme (originally from [livejournal.com profile] raelala I think, though that might have been MS Paint):

Comment here and I'll make you a drawing on Artpad based on one of your interests. You have no say on which one I choose, and you only get to make fun of my mad art skills once. Neener.

An example of what I mean. Let the games begin!
