Tagged by my friend and beta, [livejournal.com profile] delphipsmith. <3

I tend not to tag people these days as many of my LJ friends aren't on here anymore (hell, I'm barely here), and the ones that are have done this already :)

2. The Hot Zone (Preston)
3. Moby Dick (Melville)
4. How to Travel With A Salmon (Eco)
5. Cosmos (Sagan)
6. The Star Trek Reader (Vols 1-4)(Blish)
7. The Door Into Fire (Duane)
8. Southern Discomfort (Brown)
9. Harry Potter (all of 'em)(Rowling)
10.The Jewish Book of Why (Vols 1-2)(Kolatch)

In case anyone's interested, I finally, finally (only a year late) posted the fill to a wonderfully cracky [livejournal.com profile] strek_id_kink prompt that I liked the look of.

It's here, if you've got 15 minutes with nothing better to do: Too Late to Go Back to Sleep, ~3K.

It's...

...wait for it...

Gen!

But you know me: there's booze, shit explodes, and although no one gets a piano dropped on his head, it's a close thing.
nursedarry: (wellies)
So, I'm moving next week and hopefully, by the end of the month, I'll be back in the fandom saddle, ready to tackle [livejournal.com profile] mini_fest and [livejournal.com profile] hd_remix. What I'm not so ready to tackle is the impending appearance of all my in-laws for the holidays, so I'm ignoring that for the moment.

I am monumentally sorry for missing everyone's birthdays - without the LJ prompt, working from two phone diaries, as well as work being hellaciously busy, I've been TERRIBLE about remembering. I didn't even get [livejournal.com profile] ladyoneill's card to her in time, and I've known when her birthday is for the last 30 years! I've tried to PM or comment to everyone I've missed, and if I've forgotten you, please tell me and I'll post some fitting remark or pester you via PM. *irons ears and makes remembering birthdays NY resolution*

This is a flying visit but I'll bore you with this meme just before running away again.

TEN THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT ME:

1. Of all my senses, I value my sense of smell most. It is the most evocative and grounding sense I possess. And in case you were curious, coffee is my favourite smell of all.


2. I used to slash Jason and Speed Racer. Racer X was mine. ALL MINE!


3. I actually enjoy doing laundry.


4. I love wellie boots almost as much as [livejournal.com profile] cassie_black12 loves mittens.


5. It's no secret I'm a fan of ink but I'm not the first person in my family to have tattoos. Unlike my great aunt and uncle, though, I was able to choose what they were and where on my body they should be.


6. Boy by Book of Love is my all-time favourite song ever. This will come as no big surprise to most of you.


7. I'm more than a little depressed that I can no longer donate blood/bone marrow or any of my organs.


8. I have two favourite fandom boyfriends. In character, one of them is 30 years younger than me and the other is 1,953 years older. Funnily enough, they're both the same age in RL (at least for half the year).


9. Although I've always had cats in my family, and I love them, I really, really want a dog. A big one.


10. My fandom name is made up from the names of a real baseball player and a fictional astronaut.

You're probably sick of seeing it pop up in all your comments :)

Just look at that chest. Those thighs... And that groin...

And I chose the "stay in bed" answer over the Quiddich and still got him. But why wasn't there a "join in" part of the answer to finding him in bed with another man?

Your result for The Harry Potter Husband Test...

Mrs. Harry Potter

Your perfect HP man is Harry Potter.

You like a guy who's not afraid to fight evil when evil picks a fight. There's a lot to say for bravery in the face of overwhelming odds, even if it does come with a prejudice against people who don't fit into his conception of "good guy" and a penchant for hurling objects across rooms when he gets angry. But in fairness, for an orphan who's spent the better part of his life being hunted by the most evil wizard in existence, he's turned out pretty well. Just be prepared to name your kids after everyone he's ever lost, because he's got a bit of an obsession about the past.

♥ If you fancy it, post this meme and you're current wallpaper (notice I'm not forcing you to do it like she is...)
♥ Explain in 5 sentences (or less) why you're using it.
♥ Don't change your wallpaper before doing this.




How can I resist Iwaki-san? And I absolutely ♥ adore ♥ this pose; I just want to jump all over him. Except, I can think of someone who might not appreciate that.

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] lotus_lizzy, for the amazing card; it's absolutely beautiful!!! And it was such a wonderful treat to find through the letterbox after a rather stressful day.

Thank you, too, to [livejournal.com profile] cassie_black12 for offering to make me cookies with Claire for Mother's Day and to serve them to me in bed. Can I have crossaint and hot chocolate instead? There'll be less mess in the kitchen, I promise! Can't wait to see you and [livejournal.com profile] softly_sweetly this weekend!

And in other news...

you are cornflowerblue
#6495ED

Your dominant hues are cyan and blue. You like people and enjoy making friends. You're conservative and like to make sure things make sense before you step into them, especially in relationships. You are curious but respected for your opinions by people who you sometimes wouldn't even suspect.

Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

01. The first character I fell in love with: Hedwig. Then Harry.
02. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: Tom Riddle. Guh - so many AU possibilities. But Voldemort? N'thanx.
03. The character (most) everyone else loves that I don't: Snape. Just doesn't do it for me. He's okay on his own, but with anyone? Blech.
04. The character I love that everyone else hates: (Fanon) Marcus Flint. There's just something about him...especially as he looks like this in real life.
05. The character(s) I used to love but don't any longer: Hagrid. After first year, he just got silly. Sillier.
06. The character(s) I would shag anytime: Harry, Draco, Tom, Luna, Lucius, the twins (together), most of the Next Gen.
07. The character I want to be like: Madam Hooch. I effing love her character! She's fair, she's got a sense of humour and she doesn't take any shit. Plus, she has the most awesome job in the whole world.
08. The character I'd slap: Dobby. Can I step on him too?
09. A pairing that I love: Harry/Draco ♥
10. Two pairings that I hate: Snarry (GAH! Honestly, it makes me cringe! I can't even look at Snarry icons without feeling a little ill - sorry.), Harry/Ginny (so predictable, it's disgusting). I like Ginny. She deserves better since Harry obviously loves another.
11. Favourite character: Madam Hooch
12. My six favourite characters: Harry, Draco, Tom, Madam Hooch, McGonagall, Luna
13. My five least favourite characters: Snape, Lavender Brown, Poppy Pomfrey (gives us all a bad name), Cho Chang, Percy
14. Which character I am most like: Minerva McGonagall. I'm calm in a crisis, can take charge if need be, happy to let go of the reins when necessary, and (usually) have a wry sense of humour.
15. My deep, dark fandom secret: When I write, I ALWAYS picture the actors - doesn't matter if they're not canon. Oh, and am I the only one who thinks that Lily is THE epitome of Mary Sue? Perhaps, I'm wrong, but she gets on my tits.

My neighbours from back up at RAF Kinloss moved in here at RAF Benson today. We've got their 4-year-old over for tea and combined with my 5-year-olds, it's noisy and messy and I'm busy, but I've found two minutes to read my lovely flist's posts and finish this thing.

Right, hands up who wants turkey dinosaurs and fish fingers!

How it works:
A. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
B. Tag seven people to do the same.
C. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it."

List of Randomness:
1. I would really like to own a Newfoundland dog (but sadly don't have the space or the time for one, atm).
2. I'm allergic to pethadine (Demerol).
3. I cry whenever I hear either of my national anthems (especially when watching the Olympics).
4. I love doing step aerobics & playing tennis.
5. I have very mild Meniere's Disease.
6. My favourite movie is Star Wars (Ep IV), my favourite book is Dune, I'm a Gemini, and when I was 38, I gave birth to spontaneously-conceived b/g twins. Mother Nature:WTF? I'm just glad my favourite movie isn't 101 Dalmations!
7. I know how to SCUBA dive.
8. I ♥ baseball, and I support a team that has been crap since the '80s.
9. If I could choose another career, I would be a pharmacist or a car mechanic.
10. Tomorrow my husband leaves snowy England for sunny Afghanistan.

I'm tagging [livejournal.com profile] kilter, [livejournal.com profile] ladyoneill, [livejournal.com profile] dorotea, [livejournal.com profile] delphipsmith, [livejournal.com profile] starry_diadem (a lucky &^%*^ who's just retired), [livejournal.com profile] cindas, and [livejournal.com profile] crickets, but only if you really can be bothered.
nursedarry: (Thank you)
And I love my flist!!

Leave a comment and I will:

1. Tell you why I friended you.
2. Associate you with something - fandom, a song, a colour, a photo, a word etc.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
6. Tell you my favourite user pic of yours.
7. In return, you must post this in your LJ.

[livejournal.com profile] kiki_miserychik is as bored as me tonight.

The Marry, Shag, Throw off a Cliff Meme
(Am not tagging anyone cause I'm off to bed soon and most of the people on my flist have done this already:)

She gave me a trio of snakes:

Marry- Draco Malfoy- who still might have a bit of dosh and is HAWT no matter which direction the political wind is blowing.


Shag- Tom Riddle -who, let's face it, doesn't age well, so it behooves me to shag him now!


Throw off a cliff- Severus Snape- if only for the poetic justice and because aside from his voice, there ain't much there I fancy.


'Night everyone! Laundry beckons.
