AND I uploaded some icons I had found last night. See, I realized I didn't have any icons from Interview with the Vampire, and suddenly it seemed imperative that I find some. ( Read more... )
Visiting parents tomorrow, since my permanently busy and highly elusive sister has promised to show up. Good timing, since I am almost done re-reading The Vampire Lestat and need to borrow the next volume in the series.:) Actually, I should just pack up the entire Anne Rice shelf and bring it over to my place - but most of the books are huge, heavy hardbacks, which my sister prefers for some reason (I am all about paperbacks, btw - much more convenient to carry around and cuddle up in bed with, LOL), so it's not quite manageable. And anyway, I am a slow reader when it comes to books, because most of my reading time is spent online.:) So I'll just grab whatever fits into my bag for the moment.
But speaking of the vampire Lestat - I had a dream about him this morning. ( Read more... )
I couldn't resist sharing it, because it made me LOL despite the generally crappy mood I'm in right now (nothing to do with being by myself on New Year's Eve - everything to do with Mother Nature being a bitch and making my period start about five days early this month, introduced by a vicious headache).
Anyway... no worries, dear Viggo - I will never send you dirty underwear in the mail.:D My fannish obsession - even for you - doesn't go QUITE that far. Thank God. *headshake*
The Hour has struck!!! I think it's officially OK to go to bed now...:P
You Are a Danish
You are sweet and optimistic. You find a lot to be happy about in this world, and you are easy on yourself.
You love to take it easy, and you prefer when things are peaceful. You don't mind a little solitude.
Because you are your own best friend, you find it easy to be a good friend to others.
You are patient and kind. You understand that people need acceptance more than anything else.
I am a Danish. A DANISH! Get that, fellow Viggo fans?... *massive wink* :D
I checked the festival website last night, and guess what? A Dangerous Method has sold out already. I am SO glad I got my ticket in advance!!... *wibbles* It was definitely a wise decision. *nods sagely* ;)
I have tons of stuff I want to talk about, but as usual when that happens, can't make up my mind where to start. ( How about something funny then? )
So, without further ado, here's a multiracial party parade.:) (I couldn't find a way of changing a doll's skin color, so I didn't make a black or a very dark-skinned doll; but I tried for some variety with facial features and other details instead)
( virtual cuties under the cut ;) )
Your result for What Spice Are You Test...
You are Thyme!
10% Habanero, 20% Sage, 40% Thyme, 0% Ginger, 20% Garlic, 0% Curry, 0% Cinnamon and 10% Oregano!
You are very tolerant and strong!
You can be a very mild person, but you are still very strong and determined. There are times when you are quite colorful and other times when you prefer to stay out of the limelight.
You love to smell good and to stay clean. You probably live by the motto "cleanliness is next to godliness."
You can be very sweet, but you would hate for anyone to describe you that way. You more than likely are one of those people that cry at sad parts in movies but pretend that you aren't crying at all.
You definitely have your own unique way about you - in your speech, dress, and appearance. You don't have to go by the status quo because you feel it's more important to be true to who you are.
Strong and determined?... That's interesting. I keep getting that kind of result from various personality tests lately, and I'm still not convinced of its accuracy - but perhaps there's something there. I can be determined if I want something badly enough - not that it happens very often, lol. Mostly I tend to have a hard time deciding whether something is worth being determined about.:P
Oh, and I usually have no problem admitting that I do cry at sad parts in movies.;)
In other news, Viggo just totally cracked me up. I've been checking out some of his recent interviews from Poland posted on viggo_vid (the few rare ones that are NOT in 'flv' format, since for some strange reason my computer does not recognize this file format and will not play it, no matter what...:/), and in one of them he was asked how he felt about being considered one of the sexiest men on the planet. So first he just laughed, a bit self-consciously, and said that those times are probably over now (earlier there was a question about his age and what's his secret to looking so young, and he just shrugged and said it must be the genes). Then he proceeded to assure the interviewer that there are probably two or three plumbers right there in the city of Lodz that someone might find sexier than him. LOL. Now, I will mercifully spare everyone my own personal opinion on the attractiveness of an average Polish plumber, but still... poor dear Viggo. He just can't handle being a sex symbol. *chortle*
In other news, I splurged at Amazon yesterday. Again. I pre-ordered the new edition of LOTR DVD's that's supposed to include some previously unreleased behind-the-scenes material, and is coming out at the end of August. I knew I had to have it as soon as I heard about it, and I figured it might sell out pretty fast, since it's a limited edition (plus, you never know if the price isn't gonna jump up once it actually becomes available; now it's below $17.00 for each of the three boxed sets, which I think is pretty reasonable). In addition, I am expecting two more Lacrimosa albums. So my total count will be seven soon.:) There are actually ten or eleven available at Amazon, including a live one and one made up of B-sides of singles - and I think I'm going to eventually get them all - but I try to take it slowly for fear of dying on the spot from the goodness overload.;) I am lost, I swear. I don't even feel like listening to much else lately, which is unusual for me. I know I tend to obsess about stuff like music, books or films... but I stay faithfull to most of these obsessions. Which means none of them is likely to completely root out the others. Except I feel like this is going to happen right about now. Nothing else sounds quite so right anymore...
Anyway. I would say more, but I promised myself to REALLY go to sleep before midnight for once... *tired sigh*
But before I pop it in to gorge on all the additional footage, I am going to honor a request made by a certain anonymous lurker.;) Said lurker wishes to see the doll-images I have made of some of my exes (I wonder why - hmmm... ;P). *bites lower lip and ducks anonymously thrown pillows* ;D What? I am not saying anything. The names of said persons will not be revealed. And the likeness of the dolls to real people is far from perfect (which reads, basically, as follows: no matter how hard I tried to "butch them up", they still look far too feminine... LOL).
( So here it is - if you who might recognize yourself (or not) are not happy about this highly symbolic representation, remember you asked for it! :D )
