Okay, firstly?

Happy (slightly belated!) Birthday, [ profile] tarie! I hope you had a wonderful day and that the year to come is as wonderful as you are. Much love.

Secondly? HBP? Fucking loved it. There is so much I want to say (and will!) about this book, but for now I'll just say that I am filled with a kind of love for HP that I haven't felt for a long time. <3

Thirdly? I really hate sneezing. It blocks up your whole head. Your eyes water, your head spins, your nose blocks, your face itches and tingles and then once you sneeze it happens all over again. Also, I hate winter flus.

Lastly? A meme! Because listing things is fun! Gacked from anyone and everyone.

Ask me for "top five" lists of pretty much anything, and I will list you my top five of that thing or things.

Copy this to your own LJ and ask for the same.

I have this folder on my desktop titled 'random memes' and usually when I see a meme that I like and wouldn't mind revisiting I throw it in there and forget all about it. There's probably close to a hundred or so memes in there at the moment and while most of them can be trashed I couldn't get rid of this one without having a go at it! :D

No idea where this was originally gacked from, and I've modified it slightly (and likely made it harder for myself) but still a bit of fun.

Leave me an anonymous comment with:

First Letter of your Name. (given name or user-name or nickname or surname or whatever :D)
One compliment. (you know I hate these things, nothing too complimentary, k?)
One insult. (be gentle or harsh or false; I'm open to anything)
Lyrics to a song. (or lines from a poem or book or a quote ... Something that would relate to you, not me)
How long we've been friends. (online or RL or both)
An inside joke or memory with me.

Let's see how well I know some of you...
tortietta: (Red nose Harry)
First lines from 15 20 of my favourite books. Some rather more obvious than others. Cookies if you can guess the title and author. :D

1. I sit in a pitch-pine panelled kitchen-living-room, with an otter asleep upon its back among the cushions on the sofa, forepaws in the air, and with the expression of tightly shut concentration that very small babies wear in sleep.

2. Making one's home in an unpublished novel wasn't without its compensations. The Well of Lost Plots by Jasper Fforde

3. In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advise that I've been turning over in my mind ever since. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

4. In the days of high-waisted and muslin-gowned women, when the vast amount of soldiering going on in the country was a cause of  much trembling to the sex, there lived in a village near the Wessex coast two ladies of good report, though unfortunately of limited means. The Trumpet-Major by Thomas Hardy

5. Have you ever tasted a Whitstable oyster? If you have, you will remember it.

More first lines... )
tortietta: (Red nose Harry)
The less I type the better, I think. Gacked from [ profile] shoemaster and [ profile] ashkitty and likely others too.

1. Comment with any ship [or character] from a fandom that you know I like, or at least have some knowledge about. (Er... HP, M*A*S*H, Pern, LoTR... There might be others but I don't think so.)

2. I will ramble for ~100 words about aforementioned ship. This may be incoherent gushing or exclamations of disgust, depending on what it is.

3. Put this on your LJ, if you are so inclined.

Thank god for spell check, and semagic, and the copy paste thingy.

It's Friday, not Saturday. I know it's Friday. And yet, here I was waiting for 4 o'clock to come along so that I could watch Everwood. Woe. I am inordinately disappointed by this.

And because this amused me greatly...

I don't know why [ profile] arianna_malfoy went all psycho over me and [ profile] teaspoon14 having a little fun.

Hey and know what? [ profile] silverbookworm told me that [ profile] surreal_life told people that they saw me backstabbing [ profile] zeldaophelia. What a crock!   

And also I was supposed to get together with [ profile] sympathetic_ink this afternoon but I don't want to anymore.  I'm so tired of seeing the same people. 

Oh yeah. Monday was my birthday and nobody noticed or gave me presents or wished me happy birthday :-(.

While it may be the day after Valentine's here, I do think that on Valentine's day it's easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. It's easy to get caught up in the romance, but it's just as easy to get caught up in the cynicism and negativity. Whether you believe Valentine's day to be a Hallmark holiday or not, let me wish you all a wonderful Valentine's day. I love you all, dearly, and I hope that you all feel loved this Valentine's day. <333

And because both [ profile] _lore and [ profile] eliand504 are complete and utter sweethearts and it's hard not to nab something so wonderful...

Comment and I will get all gushy and tell you why I love you.

*spreads love*
tortietta: (Lost in a Good Book)
Okay people! Listen up!

I have two and a half days left of work before my holiday leave starts and I'm BORED. I need something to keep me entertained, to keep my mind active over the next couple of days or otherwise I'm going to go crazy with impatience, so what better way to kill time than write holiday drabbles?

Let me share a little of this Christmas cheer with you all. Tell me your favourite Christmas 'thing' -- be it smell, object, song, anything. Tell me your favourite Harry Potter character or pairing. Tell me something special that you'd like to see in your drabble.

If I can't do anything else for you this Christmas, let me celebrate Christmas with you this way.

Meme fun!

I've just about managed to catch up on six weeks of missed LJ. I still have a bunch to do but it no longer seems quite so daunting. I've had this strange compulsion that I just have to catch up on everything. It doesn't really make much sense but I think in a strange way it's important.

There have been a lot of memes over the past six weeks, some of which I would've been interested in doing. So, because it's hot and I have nothing better to do (or rather I do but it's too hot to garden and clean at the moment) I thought I'd do a couple of the memes that interested me the most.

That Username Meme )

That Photo Meme )

That Is Love Meme )

If there is at least one person in your life who you consider a close friend, and who you would not have met without being part of an online fandom, post this sentence in your journal.

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

I was going to do that Wish List meme but I'm in two minds over that. I'm rather enjoying being able to grant wishes and I don't know if I actually want to change that. Doing my own Wish List just seems odd. I'm more than happy just to give. If I can spread even just a little bit of Christmas cheer then it is all worthwhile to me.

Also, if you haven't already filled out my Christmas card poll, please do so. I'm not sure if I'll actually get the cards sent before Christmas but I doubt it'll much later than early in the New Year. I'm hopeless at getting things posted but that doesn't mean I don't want to send you a card. I don't want cards in return, but if you do want my address just let me know.

And now to try and catch up on six weeks of [ profile] triumvirate. :D

Ugh. Bored.

Ugh. I need something to do! Work is disgustingly quiet. No calls. No one who wants to see me. No paperwork. No cleaning. Nothing. Nada. Zilch.

I'm so bored I'm tempted to pull a network cable just to get some Service Desk calls. :-<

I need to do something -- anything -- to keep me entertained. I'll drabble. I'll draw stick art. I'll meme. Heck, I'm willing to do just about anything but I've got another five hours at work and I just need something to keep me entertained.


And a meme (or two!) to get me started:

Comment (logged in, of course) with three things you think I probably don't know about you. Then I'll respond with three things you probably don't know about me!

Also, I want anyone and EVERYONE who reads this to post in here something they would like to do with me someday.

Ahh, so bored!
tortietta: (la la la // *eyeroll*)
I have better things I could be doing but I can't seem to kick the mood that I'm in so I'm doing this instead.

45 Questions Meme )
tortietta: (>:D<)
Honestly, you'd think that I'd have better things to do in my down-time but I just couldn't resist doing this.

Anonymous friends meme thing. :D )

In other news my two day conference has been post-poned! Whoo!
tortietta: (la la la)
Too much reality TV and too much wine has eaten my brain and to add to the joy it looks like I might have to swim to work tomorrow. My joy at this knows no bounds. :/

Aww, The Wedding Planner is so cute. <333 

I know something similar to this goes around every few months, but I'm bored and have drunk too much so entertain me:

I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you realize that you have no idea about. I'll answer as best as I can.

Ask anything that you like and I will answer! :D
tortietta: (love)
I'm going to do this because I have a feeling it's going to be a quiet morning at work tomorrow and what better way to pass the time than gush about how much I love you all? :D

Stolen from [ profile] nmalfoy, [ profile] akscully, [ profile] nightfalltwen and many more...

Post a comment here and I will tell you exactly why I loff you beyond all human comprehension. Or, if I don't know you that well, I will tell you you're rilly nice. :D
tortietta: (This is all very amusing)
So, you know that "tell me something anonymously" meme that is going around? I have decided to do my own take on it. I refuse to comment in 48645468 peoples LJ's and seeing as I have never properly introduced myself to anyone I shall tell you a few things about me that I would probably never tell anyone, but in the name of meme fun will! :D

About me:

* I am hopelessly shy. In RL I'm more assertive and I always manage to put on a happy, positive front, even when I don't know people. On the internet I can’t do that. On the internet I am terrified that I will be seen as a fraud, or that people will find me boring, or find a way to exploit me. It takes a lot of guts for me to initially ping someone, or even comment in a journal, but usually after I get over that barrier it's all smooth sailing!

* I can't handle compliments. I hate them with a passion. I write a lot of fic but I never post anything because I hate the idea of people liking it and complimenting it. With compliments I always feel like I don't deserve them, because most of the time, when people compliment me I know I could've done better, I know I could've put more effort into what I was doing, so I don't feel that compliments are justified. This is a RL and online fear.

* I had a major crush on my Design Tech teacher in high school. I flirted continually with him, and there was a time when I honestly thought I just might get his attentions. He married some slag charming lady when I was in year 12.

* I've been in the fandom for nearly two and half years. I have seen a lot of things happen, and I know a lot more than people realise. I am good at listening, and watching, but I'm not good at getting involved. And when I do get involved it is usually on impulse. When I signed up for [ profile] triumvirate in May, that was on impulse, when I realised just what I had signed up for I freaked out and tried my hardest to come up with a plausible excuse for leaving. I’m glad now I never found that excuse.

* I was in a dual relationship last year, very similar to a trio relationship. It was an interesting experience, and I still care deeply about both other people involved. I have not been in a relationship since, and the only reason why things came to an end was because I couldn’t continue trying to find time for both of them together and on their own. I'd prefer to have secure friendships rather than insecure relationships.

* I will probably still answer this on other people's journals. Am a dag.

So there you have it! :D

And because this is only fair:

Post anything that you want, and post it anonymously. Anything. A story, a secret, a confession, a fear, a love -- anything. Be sure to post anonymously and honestly. Post more than once, if you'd like. Then, put this in your LJ to see what your friends (and perhaps others who you don't even realise read your LJ) have to say.

If you want to post anonymously, go for it! I seldom do public posts, do enjoy it while you can! IP logging will be turned off.
