Quizlet

Warrior
I'm not telling your actual score. Hmph!
Warriors, like Kings, are often leaders because they possess the necessary mental abilities to hold such positions. Warriors see something they want and go for it. They don't hold back. They speak their mind. They don't sugarcoat. They don't fear. Like Lovers, they often have bad reps because they are misunderstood. They may come across as harsh, unforgiving, uncaring, or insensitive, but it is only because they are realistic and drive right to the core of the situation rather than beat around the bush.



The Warrior's complement is the thoughtful, artistic Lover.

In the words of a dear friend: "Katrina. You. Need. HELP!!" ... "Thank god I read the description of the first site, it saved me from clicking any links. I don't even want to know how you find these sites!!" ... "Eww..." ... "If you ever feel the need to dedicate another post to me please stop smoking whatever you found under the couch."

Chief Financial Officer: Mat

Skills and experience: ~ good at Math. Can actually be trusted with money. Also suggested the plexiglass cube idea, and needs to be rewarded somehow.

Director of Marketing and Sales: Nils

Customer needs: Food. Water. Exercise. Leashes and muzzles.

Market growth: 100%

Growth relative to local economy: KICK ASS!

Demographics: Doesn't matter at all.

Innovators: Evil, like-minded persons. They will have to be quietly assasinated later, of course.

Product Features

Feature: World Domination Comes First.

Benefit to customer: George Bush is among the top ten for relocation to a black hole.

356 Books

Recently I read somewhere about a 100 book challenge. I figured that if I was going to read a hundred, well why not 3 hundred? Or 356? A book for everyday of the year. I think I must be crazy, but I'm going to try anyways. Today's? The Picture of Dorian Gray. I got it for Christmas, and I've been wanting to read it for a while anyways. Also, by saying 356 books this year instead of a book/day, I can skip some days if I have to and get caught up on weekends. Wish me luck!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year all! Hopefully 2005 was good to you, and may 2006 be even better. I went to a masquerade last night, but had to leave early so I could go home and spend New Year's Eve with my family. We sat around playing tuck and watching hockey until it was almost midnight and then we watched the ball drop and went to bed. All in all a rather boring way to ring in the New Year. The masquerade was interesting though. It was held at my old piano teachers house and I knew almost no one there, but there was good music and food, so hey, I wasn't complaining. I can at least say I spent New Year's Eve in a more... dignified... way then my some of my friends who were partying it up in day-glo colours and getting sloshed.

Happy 2006!

Time-consuming, Mindless, Brain-rotting Fun

Wow. Found this Fly pen site, and had to blog it. I could spend hours playing with the loading screen. The program itself is fun,fun,fun. My brain will be goo by the end of the weekend. I also found something called "MOPy Fish". Was intrigued, and downloaded the program. Have named mine "muffin the goldfish" It will doubtlessly receive far more love & affection then deemed sane for one to give a computer program. I know, I'm insane. It fun though. Also, I was reffered to this site by my sister. Was very amused by the comix section, and highly recommend it.

If that isn't enough entertainment for you tonight folks, I suggest you check out a piece of Harry Potter fanfiction called Draco Dormiens by Cassandra Claire. Or :shameless self-plug: my LOTR fanfic spoof Gondor Today.

I love spares

I really do. I have two again today. And one last period & one right before lunch. I'm very happy. I actually miss French class somewhat, but spares are excellent for catching up on stuff, or just goofing off. I have started to work on a new webpage which will hopefully be better then my old one, which I haven't updated for at least a year and wasn't very good in the first place.

I will post later on with a link once I'm done it.

I'm now in music class and we're in the library. Again. It's boring. But At least lots of my friends have spares so they can come visit me. Not that they don't come and visit anyway when they don't have spares. But I'm getting off topic. Again. I fear I shall never learn anything about the Baroque period of music at this rate. Oh well, that's what Wikipedia's for.

Wikipedia is my hero. It has saved me from having to actually work on many projects. I just go there, and all the information I need, no searching through shelves of books or pages of search results. What can I say, I'm lazy!

Woot! Christmas Shopping Trip Surviver!

Yay! I am started on my Christmas shopping! Go me! I finished shopping for my Dad, and need another gift for each of my two sisters, and something more for my Mom, but other then that, I'm good. Spent the last four hours in the Mosh pit they call a "mall" and survived without spending my last cent. Still need gifts for my friends too, but I'll probably just buy them candy, so that's easy, and I'll get my dog a bone. Hopefully I won't have to enter another mall until after Christmas. It was a nightmare. People everywhere, could hardly see down some of the aisles.

Also, I had 2 spares this morning, and for 3rd period we "worked" in the computer lab. (Which is to say everyone played games or talked to friends when the teacher wasn't looking. All in all a fairly good day.

Anyone who thinks they might die of boredom spending time with younger relatives might want to check out this link/idea:

Wish List Meme

I found this meme over at elmathelas's journal while searching for "Fred/Hermione". Had to add it to my blog.

Step One:
Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Billy/Dom icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two:
Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.


So... Here's mine.

1) A fluffy Fred/Hermione ficlet
2) Some one to illustrate a scene from my Gondor Today fanfic.
3) Instructions on how to play a simple guitar song.
4) A neat craft idea
5) A link to my blog from someone's site

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Update

Hmm... Let's see... This week has been very busy so far, I played trumpet in our loacl Christmas parade Sunday, Had my dress rehersal for the play Monday, a major biology test today (which I, in all likelyhood, bombed.) and tomorrow I'm playing trumpet in the academic awards ceremony as well as receiving a few awards myself :D honour roll, and thing for the Waterloo Math Competiton and I might get some others too, but I won't know 'till tomorrow. Anyways... back to thenot-exactly-a-point-but-subject. I'm playing 1st trumpet (i.e. the best of the brass!), and, thankfully, we get to play harder songs then in the Christmas parade... If I had to play "Jingle Bells" again, I think I'd scream. We're porbably playing Novena, Exodus (Which is easy, but at least sounds nice) Columbia Crest March (Ditto) and 25 or 6 to 4 (Easy & I don't know why we're playing it. Not really ceremony material) and Joy to the World (Jeremiah Was A Bullfrog. Which I love.) We might be playing Stairway to Heaven too, but our teacher isn't sure it's appropriate for the occasion (And yet 25 or 6 to 4 & Joy to the World are?) Fun fun fun.

I also have a French test tomorrow, an English project on Blake & the romantic poets due, a comparative essay to work on, a project for French class, a Music project & a bunch of questions for Biology homework. Which leads me to the question...

Are my teachers trying to kill me with stress?

Actually, I don't think they are, as if they were I probably have more homework then I do.

Oh yes... One final not. Fellow members of the fairer sex might apperciate this .
