sareini: "Things need not have happened to be true." - Dream of the Endless (Dreams)
11. A song that you never get tired of

Don't know why exactly, but I really could cheerfully listen to this song on repeat for quite some time before feeling a psychotic break coming on. Then again, I've always liked the Eurythmics in general.
sareini: (tired)
9. A song that makes you happy
Not much explanation here )

10. A song that makes you sad
A little more explanation here )

The past couple of days have been annoying because I've been suffering from thunderstorm headaches a lot. My thunderstorm headaches often are like mini-migraines; focusing on the area above and behind my right eye so I get vision problems along with the pain. My usual treatment for them is to go lie down and take a nap till they hopefully go away rather than take painkillers, but things aren't helped when the promised thunderstorms never actually arrive and the pressure stays low and the weather stays humid, and my head stays painful.

But I managed to drag myself out of the house this evening and went to Tesco's to do some food shopping. I even treated myself with some coconut chunks (which I'll have to keep from Lily as she likes the taste of coconut) and a few other things. I also got a Robinsons "Refresh'D" Raspberry and Apple drink but I was not impressed. I don't know if it's just me, but every time I've tried something of Robinsons it's just tasted like flavoured liquid plastic to me, which is kind of ironic really.
sareini: ('everything is true')
8. A song about drugs or alcohol

This song literally popped into my head the moment I read today's prompt. I've never taken any recreational drugs (with my mental illnesses I figured it was just inviting trouble), but this song seems to pretty much fill me on anything I might have missed.

sareini: Any connection between your reality and mine is purely coincidental (Reality)
7. A song to drive to

Another difficult one, as I don't drive and most likely never will (the anxiety would be way too much to cope with and I'd be a danger on the roads with it). But years and years ago I was at least attempting to learn to drive, and I had *ideas* of what I would do when I was rich and could buy anything I wanted. One thing in particular that I wanted was a Porsche Boxster, and I used to imagine myself driving around to this song. So I guess this is the closest answer I can give :)

sareini: "Yes, bugger all that. Let's curse somebody." - Discworld (Curse)
6. A song that makes you want to dance

This one's actually a difficult one, because the majority of songs I listen to make me want to dance in one way or another. I took dancing lessons (ballet, tap, modern and ballroom) as a child and while I was ill-proportioned and possessed of two left feet a lot of the time, I still enjoyed it. I'd put on mix tapes or compilation tapes and just "dance" around the room for hours (to be fair, a lot of it was running, bouncing or just throwing myself enthusiastically about, but I think I get points for effort). Even now I still get the urge to just bounce around the room when listening to music.

So in the end I went for this song, because it feels pretty much like an essence of feeling like you want to dance and just getting up and doing so.

I think Howling VII: New Moon Rising broke my brain. That's about the only reason I can come up with as to why I developed a headache after watching and reviewing it.

Well, it could also be a thunderstorm headache, but that doesn't bring across quite how bad Howling VII is, so let me hyperbolise for a bit.

It's been a quiet couple of days, which I have spent primarily watching Howling V: The Rebirth (in which the Kool-Aid Man may be a werewolf) and Howling VI: The Freaks (werewolf vs vampire, tonight, in Hell in a Cell!); I've also been continuing work on Ross's birthday present and playing EVE Online.. Actually, I quite enjoyed Howling VI; it's a fun b-movie romp.

I need to stop trying to multitask when I'm off exploring in EVE though. I've lost two ships this week through overconfidence and switching between so many chat channels that I forget to scan for hostiles near me. Granted, it's more the annoyance factor than anything else - I already have a spare Stratios ready to be fitted to get back out there - but I do also feel like an absolute dimwit when I get caught just because I've been dumb enough to not hit dscan every 20 seconds and be ready to cloak up.

Howling II, wherein Sir Christopher Lee looks like he's coming up with ways to kill his co-stars and make it look like an accident.

Howling III. Were-marsupials. Dressed as nuns. There's an image that may never leave you.

My mood has been up and down the past couple of days, with an unfortunate emphasis on the "down". I'm trying to combat that by keeping my mind as busy as possible so I can try to keep my thoughts away from the things that make me worse, make me panic and worry for no reason at all. So on the plus side, Ross's cross stitch present is getting a lot of work done on it right now.

I also figured I'd try one of those 30-day music memes, not least because I'm curious as to what my all-over-the-place musical tastes will do to the answers. so without further ado...

Book Meme

Seen... in several places:

These are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing's users (as of today). As usual, bold what you have read, italicise what you started but couldn't finish, and strike through what you couldn't stand. The numbers after each one are the number of LT users who used the tag of that book.

Books, books, books... )

This list tells me two things: One, that I rarely if ever fail to finish a book after I've started it, regardless of my feelings about it (borne out by my pile of books by my bead that I've recently finished/re-read, which includes several Dean Koontz books which I didn't enjoy but read all the way through, dammit!, and a Necroscope book; and two, I really need to read more. About half that list had me going, "Yes, I've always mean to read that..."

1. List five celebrities you would have sex with without even asking questions.
2. Put all of them IN ORDER of your lust for them. (One is the hottest.)
3. Say which movie/show/thing it was that hooked you.
4. Supply photos for said people.
5. Tag five friends.

I'm not tagging anyone 'cause Nick prety much tagged everyone I'd have tagged. But if you feel like doing this, hey, go nuts.

I saw this meme... somewhere, and liked it, so decided to steal it for here...

1. Go to and look up 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Post (three or four) official IMDB "Plot Keywords" for each.
3. Guess the movies!

Look here for keywords! )

I'm still alive! Really.

It's just that it's taken me a bit of time to get used to my new job (which I haven't been fired from yet) and the crushing exhaustion I get when I get home from each shift. Also, I've not exactly had the best run of luck at work so far:

On my first shift I came down with food poisoning or something, threw up twice in the toilets and had to sign off after only 5 and a half hours.

On the second shift it rained so badly on the way to work that I was drenched before I even got on the bus.

On the third shift it rained again, only this time it was while I was at work... in the garden centre. I got drenched again.

On the fourth shift a shelf full of heavy rolls of vinyl wallpaper fell on my arm, thus introducing me to the wonderful world of Health and Safety proceedures.

So yeah... it's been an interesting time. The job itself isn't that difficult - you get a special barcode-reading gun and get sent out to scan everything in the area you're assigned to, making notes of how much stuff there is as you go along - but it's usually in B&Q warehouses in the middle of the night, after several hours' worth of driving to get there, and then several hours back (Earliest I've gotten in so far is 5:30am). So there's lots of walking up and down aisles, and lots of shifting stock around so that you can scan it, and a fair bit of climbing on ladders and the like. It can get tiring very quickly.

Still, they've not fired me yet, so I only have nice things to say about them. Honest.

This upcoming week, I got to go to Exeter on Monday (five hour drive each way), Warminster on Wednesday (wonder if I should look out for the 'Thing') and Chester on Sunday. So I may not be posting too much in the first half of the week again.

Oh, and here's something I saw on Amara's journal:

As seem in [ profile] ebon_bear's journal...

If you could assemble your own superteam of any characters (fictional, historical, or modern real people) for some world-spanning epic fantasy adventure, who would they be? Pick your team according to role and function. Some characters can play multiple functions. Who would work well together and who would clash?

TEAM LEADER/ORGANISER: Mina Murray (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen). Anyone who can control Mr Hyde and make the rest of the League get on (for the most part) has to have a leadership role.

OTHER TEAM LEADER/FIELD LEADER: Six-Pack (Hitman/Section 8). He knows all the other superheroes, he's loyal, brave... and if he's this good drunk, what's he going to be like sober?

GADGETEER/INVENTOR/OCCASIONAL MYSTIC: Forge (X-Men). His mutant power to understand machinery and build just about anything would always come in handy, and he's also got some shamanistic powers (even if he doesn't like to use them). Also useful for reining in the team damage-dealer (see below).

TANK/SIEGE-BREAKER/GENERAL HEAVY-HITTER/TEAM CONSCIENCE: The Thing (Fantastic Four). When it comes to hitting things till they break/fall over, there are very few better. Plus, he's down-to-earth enough to keep the others grounded.

TOO-POWERFUL DAMAGE-DEALER/TELEPATH: Nate Grey (X-Man/X-Men). Oh, come on, you knew he'd be in here somewhere...

DEUX EX MACHINA: Galen (Crusade/Babylon 5). Always turns up at the last minute to save the day with his technomage abilities. Plus he and Forge would get on brilliantly.

SCOUT/NINJA/HACKER: Shadowcat (X-Men). Her ability to phase would be pretty much invaluable in getting into places, plus she can take care of herself if she's ever caught.

PUBLIC RELATIONS/PUBLIC SPEAKER/TANK: Statesman (City of Heroes). He's patriotic and a known and loved superhero symbol. If anything ever goes wrong, he'd be able to talk the authorities out of prosecuting.

COMIC RELIEF: Baytor (Hitman). I am BAYTOR!
