What Neon Genesis Evangelion character are you?

I need to rewatch a bunch of anime... Eva, Utena, Cowboy Bebop, Rurouni Kenshin, and S.E. Lain come to mind... I'm also in the market for new stuff too. Recommend something for me that I might like, something with a good balance of super-deform slapstick and seriousness. Preferably not focused on an endless series of fights (DBZ types need not apply) or mecha.

I'm going to kick back and rewatch Moulin Rouge! I am in the mood for anachronistic yet gloriously costumed melodramatic silliness today.

You scored 41 angst and 38 tempo! (scale for each: 0-60)

All grown up and no place to go
Strike one, strike two, what do you know?

You scored as "Pressure," the hit song off Billy Joel's 1981 album, The Nylon Curtain. Frankly, this is my least favorite of Joel's album's, although the critics liked it and "Pressure" is one of the best songs. You may recognize it as often being played during timeouts at basketball games.

This score suggests you're a Type A personality, and maybe feeling a little stressed at the moment. I applaud your taste in music, but you might want to try some more soothing songs like "Vienna" or "Everybody Has a Dream." Or maybe some aromatherapy or something.

Cool score, though. :)

My test tracked 2 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

Link: The Which Billy Joel Song Are You Test written by rjb1862 on OkCupid Free Online Dating, home of the The Dating Persona Test

I like this song a lot. I love the fact that once again Billy Joel is being unrepentantly New York-centric by mentioning Channel 13 and then Sesame Street in the same line. It's like, yeah I know PBS isn't Channel 13 everywhere. Screw everywhere else. :)

Course I have to wonder if anywhere else besides NY managed to pack all of its major networks neatly into the VHF frequencies. One of the things that always boggled me about travelling places is that nice normal channels like NBC and CBS would show up in funny places like channel 40 or 22, which made no sense to me. CBS = 2, NBC = 4, FOX = 5, ABC = 7, 9 and 11 became UPN and WB (I think 9's gone back to being independant now) and 13 was PBS. Very easy. I've been in the Valley about a decade now and I still have no idea where any of the channels are.

Of course, it probably dates me like hell that I know the basic difference between a UHF and a VHF frequency in this age of cable. then again, my parents used rabbit ears until long after I went off to college.

I found a freakishly large centipede hiding in one of the coffee cups at work this morning (and was very glad I'd seen it BEFORE I'd poured coffee on top of it!) It was definitely one of those moments where I was very glad no one else in the office found it, otherwise there would have been broken coffee cup everywhere and lots of shrieking. I'm sure other people think that about me when they find a green fuzzy civilization in the fridge. It's always fascinating to me what relatively harmless things people have a knee jerk visceral reaction to. I mean, I know mold is not going to reach up and eat my face, but my first instinct is to put as much distance between me and the fuzzy as possible. Usually with jumping screaming and throwing involved. Likewise I can understand why people have such a bad reaction to bugs, especially centipedes. Waaaaaaaaaay too many legs, especially when moving. I dunno. it's just interesting how little aspects of daily life and the natural world can freak people out so completely.

LOST - Ahh yes. This was a yummy episode. Spoilerese )

Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

that gigantic, badly laid out table survey that's been going around. With commentary! )

Somehow I managed to crash around 2 this afternoon and not rise again from the dead until 8. Stupid being ill. Apparently I needed to sleep. The only thing was that I missed the craft fair. Bummer. Oh well, there's piratey renaissance tomorrow.

I still don't know who bought me paid time last month, and it's starting to drive me a bit crazy. Would whoever you are please let me know?

This meme is pretty pertinent to my state of mind, actually, and is far more fun and less cryptic and angsty than posting the lyrics to "Bizarre Love Triangle" which is originally what I was going to do when I got home. So. Onwards.

There's at least 1 person on your LiveJournal that wants to date you or sleep with you. So, let's play Friends With Benefits! (cue ominous music)

The rules are simple:

* If you want to date the person who posts this -- for this purpose, meaning "be in arelationship with them" -- post a comment saying "I'm yours" (Or, if you're Just That Dominant, "You're Mine")

* If you just want to sleep with the person and stay friends (for varying values of "sleep with", i.e. periodic kinky playdates without actual sex beinginvolved), post a comment that says "I'd hit it."

Are you scared? You ONLY live ONCE! The kicker is that you MUST repost this and see if it's true for you.

All responses will be screened. No one will ever know if you'd do me.

Except you. And me.

You scored as Sydney. You are Sydney! You know that most people are too foolish to make the world a better place, so you're not looking for a better tomorrow -- you're looking for some new clothes and a little respect in the academic world. You can be self-important, so be sure to hug your girlfriend and thank her for putting up with you.

Speaking of which, I need to pick up Fun Home next time I have monies. It looks excellent. That and get my DTWOF collection and my RK manga from the old place, as I have dedicated a small bookshelf to graphic novel comicky goodness and they are rather woefully missing. As is one of my volumes of The Boondocks. Curse, curse!

Anyscrew, tonight my agenda is Gamer Paradise BBQ (aka Tuesday night Dinner) as I have not yet said hello to [livejournal.com profile] wrpigeek and [livejournal.com profile] jade_eyes13 since they got back. Then more unpacking and list making and bemoaning the fact that all of my underwear is at the old house. ;)

Today was definitely full of the TLD. Tired, listless, and depressed. That said there were some very good things about it, like sundart making very yummy breakfast and later very yummy dinner, [livejournal.com profile] inle_rah popping by for a short visit, finding my favorite Tom and Jerry cartoon evar on YouTube (jesus, they really do have everything, don't they?) getting to hang out with [livejournal.com profile] sundart most of today and anzovin for a good part of it... yeah, those bits cancelled out the other ones.

and now a meme.

List up to ten things you want to say to ten different people. Do not state who these people are. Do not confirm or deny any comment speculation. (Note: your 10 people do not have to be LJ friends.)

Ten things to ten people )

Its funny, I go back and look at some of these and realize that they could apply to more than one person.

questionnaire type thingy )

belly dance tonight was good, oy, we don't have class one week, and the next week's class just is an hour and a half exercise in PAIN omg. The good news is i have quite a few of the moves down to the point where they look and feel natural. And I get to perform! Our class is performing in the June 11th show at the clarion, so if anyone wants to come see me and other pretty chickies shake their moneymakers, definitely come! I'm wicked excited about this - I used to love dance recitals and our dance is so, well, uptempo and fun and yeah, part of me wants to show off. More info on that as it comes. i can't believe next mondays our last class - where did eight weeks go??

Think of your favorite underrated film, type the name into Google and do an image search. Find the best pic and then post it in your journal, but don't say what the name of the movie is! Once you post the picture, it's up to your friends to figure out what the movie is from the pic you posted. No cheating by looking at the image filename! Responses are screened so that everyone can play. :)

You can never go home again...

something neat from [livejournal.com profile] harinezumi: I'm apparently an Attentive Idealist. what's your personal dna?

(note - don't bother with the little colored thingies at the bottom of your results - I'd forgotten that LJ disables scripty things.)

Had a reasonably good evening yesterday... had a little stolen time with the boy since he offered to pick me up from work while he was doing errands, and we ran into a very... er, bouncy [livejournal.com profile] inle_rah while we were at it. There was a new ep of Avatar the Last Airbender on... that show manages to continually impress me. I love how it manages to balance the dead serious with the goofy. Think about it, these kids are on a quest of penultimate importance, it's on them to stop the war that's been raging for the last hundred years, but at the same time the show still manages to remember that they are. just. kids. It's pretty awesome. Someone buy the DVDs to me. ;)

And there was a little bit of Smackdown! and the pre-[livejournal.com profile] pvrewind diner meetup which was great (note to self - doing an dead-on impression of Barney the Dinosaur singing "Baby Got Back" is a good way of terrifying everyone quickly) and then... The Breakfast Club. It had been years since I'd seen it last, so this viewing was welcome. There really is something unique about a sold-out theater full of fans whistling the Colonel Bogey March along with the characters... as well as singing "Don't You Forget About Me" during the opening. And I remembered why exactly I wanted me a Bender the first few times I watched the movie. *snrrt* He was definitely the sort I'd have a crush on in high school... heh. I still haven't really lost my attraction for that sort of hurt/rage churning beneath the surface. In guys anyway. *sigh* Pretty much every one i've ever had a crush on had that going.

Other than that... I'm working again this morning. *shakes head* I know, I said last weekend I wouldn't but this time I did get R to buy me lunch yesterday. And honestly I don't really mind. It's short, I don't have to do very much, no one else is here, it's blissfully quiet and it's extra money. So. *shrug* I suppose I'd be more peeved if it were actually putting me out in some way to be here, but it's not. I never really have anything better to do on Saturday morning so I might as well... you know? I don't have much planned today either... I was invited to a birthday dinner at Osaka tonight, but I've already spent too much money this weekend. I might just curl up somewheres and finish reading Grass, which is both fascinating and hard to get through at the same time. And think about stuff. Cause that's what I do.

Well since everyone else is doing it...

That Wikipedia birthday meme - Oct 7 )

Heh, my birthday was way more interesting than I thought.

Today's been okay. kinda bleh, but I've at least made enough progress with my shrink that most of the hour is spent on actual stuff instead of explaining my extended monkeysphere. One of the things that came up today was the Great Flat Switch... she seems to think it may be a good thing for me, as it seems like my primary complaint when coming in is needing more leave-me-alone time... I woke up with the conclusion that while I do love being social and hanging out with folks a lot, I need my own space away from everyone else on the other side... in parentheses... and capital letters... quotated... y'know? It's weird, I grew up so isolated, up on the third floor of the House that I could barely leave, and then I went to college and while not exactly a party animal I liked having the company all the time... and now I'm drifting back towards hermitude. Hopefully, seeing as the last time I was hermity (albeit not by choice) I tended to get a lot more done creatively, this drift will also mean a refocusing on creative stuff and actually getting shit done... that would be a nice change.

I was talking to [livejournal.com profile] morlock about memes yesterday morning, mostly in reaction to johari/nohari/harikiri things that have been flitting around... No, I'm not doing one, nor am I participating in anyone elses. My essential problem with something like johari is that I feel like people tend to go for pleasing, flattering answers by default, and don't tend to straight up tell the truth, either out of a need to avoid drama, conforming to the axiom of "if you can't say anything nice..." or, in the case of some people, the knowledge that the receipient of your honest opinion won't be able to take the honest criticism... and for things like that, while sure all the nice words would be complimentary and good to hear, there's a part of me that would wonder if that's honesty or a need to be nice talking.

Same with Nohari. I mean reversing the concept is a good idea, but people are definitely going to skew away from the harsher words, or just avoid doing it at all. It goes both ways, too - I would be kind of hurt if someone told me if I was vacuous, irresponsible, needy, overdramatic, cowardly, rash, callous and violent, even though all of those words can be attributed to me and I know this. (well, maybe not vacuous... though I do admit to posting about pretty much nothing quite a bit, I don't think that I myself am vacuous.) So with all of this in mind I really have to wonder how effective a meme is where opinions of yourself are solicited from outside sources... and should such a thing really be done? Nice or harsh, it's not really telling you anything you don't know already about yourself, is it?

Yeah, I know, it's just a meme and I'm thinking too much about it, but it does seem to be symptom of a greater problem of interpersonal relationships and the delicate, overly nuanced navigations of such things. How is it that most of us, if not all of us, ended up with the complete inability to take any sort of personal criticism as anything but a personal attack? Even those who recognize criticism as it actually is, I have serious trouble believing that there isn't an initial reaction of "Why would this person say such a thing to me?" followed by an immediate "They're wrong, fuck them" or "they must actually hate me oh god I'm horrible?"

for some reason this one's called ET )

I'm going in a little late due to the weather, though if I really got my ass in gear I could probably go get my usual bus. However I'm still a bit slow and groggy from the crazy week and a bit too much cream based alcohol (my poison of choice these days seems to be equal parts cream, Baileys, and Kahlua) and excitement at the office hexmas party last night (which turned out to be really low key and nice), so I reserve the right to not hustle my butt out into the nastiness this morning. Freezing rain with up to 1/4 inch of glazing possible. Mmm Mmm. Definitely want to be out there breaking my neck.
