Because, even though I'm not reading proper books like I used to, I can't resist talking about books!

I might add another question of my own:
Is there any room in your house that doesn't have at least one book in it?
My answer at the moment is yes, currently there are no books in either of our two bathrooms. Otherwise, every room has books.
amberdreams: (Bum)
Yeah, another post, sorry!

What is your favorite "food" holiday?
 
Ones in Rome where I can get the best gelato. Nach.

Do you prefer ham or turkey (or tofu turkey)?
 
None of the above. I'll have cheesy potato bake please. Or roasties.

Do you anticipate or dread seeing your relatives for the holidays?

Yes.

When do you start listening to Christmas carols (for real, you can tell us)?

I don't. The only two carols I like are In the Bleak Midwinter and the Coventry Carol.

How are you feeling right now with regards to the upcoming holiday season?

I think my skin is turning green as I type. Yup.

Yup, it's another too-long set of questions to answer! Hurrah!

Stolen from a bunch of other people all old enough to know better.

Because I should be doing something off my Things to Do Bingo card, of course I've found something else to waste time on.




Snagged from the charmng viviansface (and others). Give me a question or several, and I'll do my best to answer within a reasonable timescale.

Hey ho memeage
In which I tell you everything you never wanted to know about me, and fuck up the LJ formatting with panache.

I have no resistance in me, I had to do this even though I don't really like Funko Pop figures...LOL
funko pop me
I also then felt compelled to compensate for the fact that the generator (HERE) failed to offer green eyes as an option, and while I was rectifying that, added my mole, flushed cheeks and a sutiable logo on my t shirt. What a bleedin' time waster I am. And I'm still irritated by the fact that they didn't have any hair option close to mine. At least there was a Jayne hat to cover up the wrong hair. LOL
amberdreams: (Bum)
yeah yeah I coudn't resist - even after wasting however long it was yesterday on creating a mermaid!Dean and Mermaid!Me then losing the finished pieces... LOL
These doll things are very addictive.
So here's my Merman SPN AU.

Someone explain (or better yet write the porny merman fic that explains) how my two boys are going to have intercourse...!!
And yeah, I also couldn't resist adding Mer!Me to the pic - well a girl can dream, right?

Because I'm procrastinating (what's new!) here's a meme snagged from FB that I will probably suck at. Have I even seen 50 bands in my lifetime?

Variously stolen from dear_tiger, ephermeralk and cassiopeia7. Go to the closest book to you. Turn to page 206. The first sentence explains your love life.

My love life came out (from 3 books closest to me) as:
"Her too?"
"I've not got any gypsy clothes," he said, "but p'raps they'd give me some."
I thought about my time up at Haworth when I was a small girl.

If anyone wants to interpret this explanation of my love life, feel free because I am clueless...!

The lines are from, respectively - Alan Garner's Boneland (which doesn't run to 206 pages so I went for the last even numbered page), Richmal Crompton's William The Fourth, and Jasper Fforde's The Eyre Affair.

Lifted from quickreaver, because I should be doing all manner of other things including tidying the house for sister -in-law's visit on Thursday.
As I'm off to the parents next week for a Folk Festival/holiday thing, I can't guarantee I'll finish everything that's suggested, but I'll tackle at least the first ten responders. I'll either drabble, ficlet or maybe even sketch.

It will all be SPN related.
So:
1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment. CHECK
2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"
3) After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.
I've made my list, so if you have a moment, now it's time for you all to ask questions! Yay!

CLOSED FOR PROMPTING NOW TA!

I should (of course) have been doing other things, but I got distracted by finding an old still from one of my all time fave episodes, On the Head of a Pin.
Experimental wallpapers ensued.
