What’s your favorite show on television?


Right now: Castle.

Other faves that have topped the list in recient years include: Gilmore Girls, Law & Order (all of them), NCIS, Firefly, and Iron Chef.

Dr. Who falls in to a catigory all its own. Its not a favorite, more like an addiction where I must get a fix as often as possible.

Как вы боретесь с простудой?
Средство №1-баня, после нее ниче не остается
Средство №2- биопорокс, если брызгать сразу и понескольку раз тоже махом проходит
а вообще каждый год весной пропиваю курс имунала, очень мало болеешь и быстро выздоравливаешь (а у меня хроническое заболевание горла, без него в месяц по 2-3  раза болею)

Кто угодно, любой, кто понимает, что использовать деньги народа для поддержки его врагов-глупо. Сам Кудрин за 11 лет так и не осознал. Достаточно весьма среднего образования.

Aw geez, let's see. Groupon, Pandora Radio, Youtube, Fanfiction, Deviantart, and Gmail are usually opened in different tabs when I get on the web. I usually have to cut off the internet or else I'll never get anything done--I mean, there's so many things to do online, like check back on various websites for updates every 5-10 minutes or so... :p

What’s your favorite kind of weather?

С самого раннего детства любил грозу. Для меня гроза всегда была захватывающим зрелищем. Всегда удивлялся, когда слышал истории про то, что какой-то ребенок испугался грозы. Чего там пугаться - это же так классно! Стоило начаться грозе, я, будучи маленьким, подбегал к окну и смотрел на молнии в облаках, на клубы холодного пара, которые рвет ветер...
Моя самая любимая погода - прохладная и пасмурная. А после дождя так пахнут листья!

Writer's Block: And the forecast is…

What’s your favorite kind of weather?


Hot, sticky, and glorious.

All right, so this is where my extreme weirdness shines through. I mean, my ideal weather right there could generate a horde of crazy looks, but it gets better; wait. Firstly, yes, I love the heat. That is no secret to anyone who knows me. I prefer temps in the high 80s accompanied with pea-soup-dense humidity. I love to wear tanktops. I love to wear flip flops. Most of all, I love the complete absence of the dastardly sensation know as "Being Cold." I despise and wish death upon any air conditioner in my immediate vacinity. I adore my non-AC'd house. I bask in how I can wake up in the morning and walk around barefoot without having my toes chilled to the bone. Florida is awesome; going in the summertime is a-ok for me. I'm in my element when I'm photographing in enveloping heat at Saratoga--my best photos are produced, no joke. And I refuse to go to the beach unless it's sunny and the sand is blistering. My beachbum brother thinks the best beach weather is mid-70s with a crisp breeze. I think that's lunacy!

This is where things get nonsensical. Because as much as I crave overly-warm weather, the summer is not my favorite season. Fall is. Why? Because I get giddy over the return of cooler temps and the brisk kick to the air. XD

I guess I'm disgressing from the original focus of this question, but it all relates. I love Fall because it gives me the opportunity to do something I can't do during the summer--that is, get cozy. I don't love the cooler climate because it's a reprieve from the heat. I love it because I finally can bundle up in my comforter at night; I can wrap myself in my Snuggie in front of the TV; I can blast the heat in my car; I can wear sweaters and sweatshirts and slippers. You get the picture. I can't be snug as a bug in a rug during the summer, although I surely can't complain that there's very few moments I can say I'm cold (again, that is unless I'm trapped in the merciless snares of high-pumping, evil AC).

Which reminds me, I need to place my order for Bass Pro Shop tomorrow. I think they are officially usurping my loyalty to LL Bean for all my fall/winter needs. I got their catalogue in the mail the other day, and OMG, I want like half of it. The half that isn't camoflague, that is. Although I find it utterly hilarious that they make camo lingerie. XP But all the pretty sweaters and warm pullovers and actual Fall jackets! And there's no wool in any of this, either! Freaking finally, clothes I can wear without my skin going to hell! \O/

Okay, time to go to bed, then. My feet are cold. XD

What’s your favorite show on television?

My favourite show on television has to be Misfits. It's a british show about a group of young offenders on community service who get superpowers during a freak storm. There's a lot of dark, and perverted humour in it along with great action scenes and good graphics. I would suggest to anyone and everyone to watch it if they aren't easily offended :)

Writer's Block: The state of perception

  I really wouldn't be willing to give up any of my senses. There would have be a very compelling and/or potentially catastrophic consequence for keeping them for me to even consider it. If it would save my friends or family from death or debilitating long-term disease, or the world from its many ills, or even myself (in that order) I would do it. Maybe there would be others, but I can't think of anything else at the moment.
  The sense I think I use least is my sense of smell. Even that is one I wouldn't want to give up though. I would miss it terribly. No smell of lilacs from the bush that towers over the neighbor's fence. No smell of wet earth after rain. No smell of pine trees at Christmas. No smell of apple pie in the oven. No siren call of bacon cooking in the pan. No smell of roses. No pineapples or oranges to brighten up the room from their scent. 

  Could I do it? I hope I never have to make that choice.

I frequent quite a lot of sites!  First and formost are Tumblr, a blogging site, and Gaiaphage, a fansite for one of my favorite book series.  After those, there's the standard Youtube, Hotmail, sometimes Facebook, etc.  I used to be on deviantArt constantly, but I rarely visit now.

Writer's Block: And the forecast is…

What’s your favorite kind of weather?
autumn weather! i like when it's slightly cold, but can also still be comfortable outside where the sun shines and the leaves are so pretty and changing colours and falling and you can wear more layers but not bundle up either. and i'm probably alone in this, but i also like rainy days. it's nice to feel safe and warm when you see it's raining out, plus it's always a good excuse to be lazy :D but walking in the rain and getting your shoes wet and jumping in puddles and not caring is really fun. 

speaking of being lazy, today has been just that...because i'm so sore from yoga!! i thought vince was exaggerating when he said you feel really sore after, i didn't think i'd actually feel like i can hardly get the strength to walk to another room. i hope i don't feel like this everytime...VINCE you better not even tell me you don't feel sore. we went for bubble tea again too and i did the avacado this time, he was right, it's really good! at this rate i'll end up having all the flavors on the menu i'm sure XD oh yeah, not so much in the way of cute men in our class. there were like 2 decent ones, but they're a little too clean cut for me.  anyway, i've spent most of the day looking at things that make me laugh (hipster runoff- laugh so much everytime i look on that site) and listening to calm music, like this:

Writer's Block: “We built this city on rock and roll”

What are your favorite song lyrics, and why?
"Nobody's Hero" by Rush

I knew he was different in his sexuality
I went to his parties as a straight minority
It never seemed a threat to my masculinity
He only introduced me to a wider reality
As the years went by, we drifted apart
When I heard that he was gone
I felt a shadow cross my heart

But he's nobody's hero
Saves a drowning child
Cures a wasting disease
Hero...lands the crippled airplane
Solves great mysteries
Hero...not the handsome actor
Who plays a hero's role
Hero...not the glamour girl
Who'd love to sell her soul
If anybody's buying
Nobody's hero

I didn't know the girl, but I knew her family
All their lives were shattered in a nightmare of brutality
They try to carry on, try to bear the agony
Try to hold some faith in the goodness of humanity
As the years went by, we drifted apart
When I heard that she was gone
I felt a shadow cross my heart

But she's nobody's hero
Is the voice of reason against the howling mob
Hero...is the pride of purpose
In the unrewarding job
Hero...not the champion player
Who plays the perfect game
Hero...not the glamour boy
Who loves to sell his name
Everybody's buying
Nobody's hero

As the years went by, we drifted apart
When I heard that you were gone
I felt a shadow cross my heart

But he's nobody's hero
Saves a drowning child
Cures a wasting disease
Hero...lands the crippled airplane
Solves great mysteries
Hero...not the handsome actor
Who plays a hero's role
Hero...not the glamour girl
Who'd love to sell her soul
If anybody's buying
Nobody's hero

Hero

My friends know why.

What are your favorite song lyrics, and why?


But this isn't the song I'm speaking of. The song that catches me isn't even one Brian sang himself. He wrote the song for Freddie to sing on Queen's final album, Innuendo. It was the last song... The Show Must Go On. The song is something powerful...something that speaks beyond the lyrics and music and reaches into you, especially if you're a fan like I am. Every year, we count another we're without our Freddie...but Brian wrote words to remind us of Freddie's strength.

My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
Fairy tales of yesterday will grow but never die
I can fly...my friends...


Despite the fact there were other tracks that appeared years later on Made In Heaven, including Freddie's final song, Mother Love, which Brian finished the vocals on because Freddie never got to, this song is the one that speaks to me, because those words have a kind of ethereal power to them, almost otherworldly in their grace. Despite how I feel towards Brian nowadays, I acknowledge the fact only he could have written something so perfect.

What’s your favorite show on television?

Okay, this one's easy...



(Rotting) hands down, The Walking Dead. I've always loved zombie movies, books, videogames... I wrote a short story about zombies for my GCSE English coursework when I was 14 and had a period of about two years where I dreamed about nothing but zombies every single night (and yes, sometimes I did actually get eaten in said dreams. Didn't stop me loving them ♥) Having a TV show to look forward to every week that takes zombies as its premise is like a dream come true - literally! - and despite the quality being somewhat up-and-down last season I can't wait for Season 2 when it starts on October 16th.

Aside from the zombies in the show, I adore the characters and their dynamics too. I'll go more into this in my 'countdown to season 2' week that I have planned for mid-October, but Daryl is fun as hell to watch and I think there's a lot more to him under that impulsively violent squirrel-tossing redneck exterior; Carl is my favourite character from the comic books and I'm excited to see him begin evolving from scared little boy to the resourceful survivor that he becomes later on; I love to hate Lori and while I couldn't stand Shane in the comics, the moment he beat the hell out of Ed in the show made him into a personal hero of mine and I'm looking forward to the increasing tensions between him and Rick in season 2, leading up to the mother of all explosions when things finally come to a head, I'm sure (speaking of which, I love the way the show has diverged from the comics on certain points - such as Shane's story - which means that even people who know where the original story went are left guessing what's going to happen within the group in the next season)

19 days to go, and boy am I excited ^__________^

I'm on Google+, Facebook, and Twitter all the time. I also go to Google News quite a bit, to check for news about neutrinos, dinosaurs, and time travel. Seriously, one of my custom news categories is "Time Travel." It mostly turns up entertainment news about Doctor Who, but there's the occasional real world science gem.

I also spend a bit too much time on Neopets. I'm just glad they're not owned by Scientologists anymore. Unless that wacked out cult owns Nickelodeon. They don't, do they? That would suck. Clarissa No!!!!

I surf alot of sites, such as this one, and of course the porn sites that I like, (Hey, you have your vices, I have mine.) and anything that is courtesous enough to mention me. Also the film festivals, since I plan to submit to a few. Also, whatever intrigues me, such as playing games online, or watching old shows online. I might get another website with me online again. I know I will visit that. Hey, you have your vices, I have mine. Enough said.

I'm on Facebook a LOT. I love www.sporcle.com for their quizzes on so many topics. Every day I go to www.playbabble.com for the best of a boggle-style game that gives you 24 hours to find all the words in it, and to www.wordtwist.org for faster boggle games. I love Wikipedia. That's about it lately; I used to go to news and opinion sites but lately I just want games!

I go to the Animal Rescue site to click the button when I remember to (http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/clickToGive/home.faces?siteId=3 - please go there and click; every click helps feed an animal, and it's free). I also watch The Daily Show and Colbert Report on their respective sites.
