But I'll try. Except for how I'm currently writing Sacha Baron Cohen/Will Ferrell fic, because come on. In the words of a Hungarian Tourist with an incorrect translation guide, "My nipples explode with delight!" [/random Monty Python reference]

moosesal tagged me for a 10 things meme, which I will lovingly jam under a cut, because YOU PEOPLE MATTER. And I don't want you getting carpal tunnel from all the scrolling, omg.

Each player of this game starts off with 10 weird things/habits/little-known facts about yourself. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 10 weird habits/things/little known facts as well as state this rule clearly. At the end you need to choose 10 people to be tagged and list their names. No tag-backs. (I don't want to pressure anyone. Consider yourself tagged by me if you want to do this!)

  1. I have a chihuahua head. And by that I don't mean an actual canine head, but a weetiny head. I have to buy hats in the kids' section. I'm incredibly self-conscious about how out of proportion my head is to my body, which is silly, but there it is.
  2. I have to have a minimum of 10 minutes all by myself every morning, or my entire day is shot. Like, seriously. It's my buffer between the dream-state and responsibility of being a mom/wife/etc.
  3. I don't want to relive my teen years (the go -back and do it all over again thing) but I definitely want to re-do certain things and, if left to my thoughts long enough, can get emo about wanting to go back. Things I want to relive: that first real kiss - Oh, MICHAEL LEE, that feeling you only have as a teenager that you are feeling something so intensely that it's only YOU that has felt that way before, the first time I realized I had my own taste in music apart from my parents/siblings. (Like, I was listening to U2 on my MP3 player this morning and remembered how cool I felt when I was 12 because I knew it was good music and I liked it. Hee!)
  4. I get melancholy sometimes thinking about how I'll never have a first kiss again. (I... have a thing for first kisses. *g*)
  5. I forget sometimes that I have an actual mother in the world. (Which is fine.)
  6. Sometimes I ache so much for a mother that I feel like I'm drowning in need and it scares me because I don't like to "need" anyone or thing. (Wanting is something different.)
  7. I will go WEEKS without looking at myself in a mirror. (Like, my body. I'll look at my teeth when I brush them.) I do not like looking at myself, which probably says LOADS about me. :)
  8. I really, honestly believe that I could survive in the wild if given only a ball of twine and a pocket knife. (I use to do it for two weeks every summer.) And I watch that show Man vs. Wild and scoff at how he's obviously making some things more "dangerous" than they really are, while secretly comparing myself to Bear Grylls and wishing I could have a Bionic Woman-type spin off and he and I could meet up in the Australian Outback for a 2 hour special and go off in the brush and make survivor/end of days babies because have you SEEN HIM? Hahaha.
  9. I can tie every single knot in the Boy Scout Handbook with one hand. Truly. (what if you're hanging by one hand and someone throws you a rope? How would you tie the knot to safety? EXACTLY.)
  10. I actually get very hurt when I realize there are people out in Binary Code Land (aka the internet) that honestly believe I am a mean person, because I'm not. But then I realize they like shit I think is ridiculous and I remember their opinion doesn't matter much and I go back to my crayon drawings and sipping my juice box. *swings feet and waits for recess*


In addition to this Will/Sacha fic I'm writing, I'm wanting to create this whole 80s 'verse with the Coreys and Rob Lowe and Jason Bateman from his teen years and Ricky Schroeder and Elizabeth Shue and Molly Ringwald and I realize this means I'm trying to relive my youth and I should just turn off the Go Gos and Cure music and MOVE FORWARD. Hahahahaha. I get to meet with the pool designer later today and find out if my idea is doable. *bites nails* Today is a GOOD DAY! There should be cookies. Anyone have cookies? Oooh, or brownies! Brownies! Brownies are good, too.

I didn't even have to look at your name to know whose post this was. The title gave it away IMMEDIATELY. *g*

It kills me that you avoid looking at yourself in the mirror. If I looked like you, I would gaze adoringly on my reflection every day! Seriously, you are one of the most beautiful women I have ever met. No lie.

Jun. 5th, 2007 03:43 pm (UTC)
I've never met you, but from your pictures I'd have to agree with lynnenne.

But we all have our reasons for what we can and cannot accept about ourselves.

That is an interesting and informative list of things about you.

But I came over to give you this: a "To the Point" (NPR) program about Mitt Romney etc.

Ooooh, link! *ZOOM!*

(Thank you!)

I've got cupcakes, does that work?

You have intrigued me with your SBC/Will ship. I may have to investigate this more.

I completely understand the first kiss thing. I think the best kiss of my life was my first kiss which is both really sweet and really, really pathetic.

And I think you're lovely looking and not mean at all and I'm glad you and the fam had fun in NYC last week.
Jun. 5th, 2007 04:20 pm (UTC)

(Oh my gosh, C, it's like the world knew it could never give me JackDav and Will for real, so it's giving me Sacha in his place, and I am OKAY WITH THAT. ...maybe moreso. OH MY GOD DUN HAYT ME RU.)

<3 <3 <3 How was YOUR vacation? Just back, right? All rested and recharged? *twirls your hair*

1. I don't think you're a mean person.
2. U2 rules. You should write a Bono story.
3. Please share the Will/Sacha story (I can't believe I'm saying this)as I would really like to read it.
4. Ooo...knots...

Jun. 5th, 2007 04:21 pm (UTC)
1. AWWW! *bites lip* Thanks.
2. THEY DO. (Unfortunately, Bono was RUINED for me in an RPG I used to play in, so I don't know about that ever happening. However, I cannot stop obsessing about The Police - esp. as I have FRONT ROW SEATS when they come soon - so there may be Sting/Stewart fic. Hee!)
3. I plan on it!
4. *eyebrow waggle*

#8 - Bear is HAWT! You totally need to land that spinoff. And apocolypse babies. Yis

#10 - People always tend to think I'm MEAN too, but I'm really not. Which has nothing to do with the reasons ppl think YOU are mean (because I'd ignore those idiots). I guess I have a bad internet "tone" lol.
Jun. 5th, 2007 05:46 pm (UTC)
8. Isn't he? He's from Eton, too! And Cambridge! And a mid-level Royal family and he's athletic and owns an ISLAND. <3
10. They think I'm mean because I laugh at really over the top prose, and the funny thing is, I've NEVER gotten any of the bad!fic from my flist/friendsof. It's always from weird Anime or really old BtVS stuff, but apparently that's just horrid. *eyeroll* (I've not noticed a nasty/bad tone from you, so whatever, people!)

Anyone have cookies?

No, but my hovercraft is full of eels!
Jun. 5th, 2007 06:04 pm (UTC)
I'm still searching for some.

*pantomimes buying a box of matches then striking one*

We go back to my place for *strike* hanky panky?

*snugs with you*

We will have brownies and watch St. Elmo's Fire and forget about moms and looks and head size (have you noticed my head is too *large*? Like, turtlenecks were a problem when I was a toddler), and then go swimming in the pool!
Jun. 5th, 2007 07:09 pm (UTC)
*hopeful look so you'll play with my hair*

I did NOT notice that about your head, and that's something I usually DO notice. (People on TV have large heads - I actually lost an audition because of my wee head!O_O) And I've got some popcorn waiting and loads of soda for our movie watching.

*cannonballs* (The pool man hurt his leg so we're meeting tomorrow. o_0)

SBC/WF!!! *swoons* More than my nipples are exploding with delight. You are made of awesome!

I have to buy hats in the kids' section.
Me too! I actually found a hat the other day that fit well--my 5 year old nephew's baseball hat. *facepalm* Granted he has a large head. The last hat I bought was a girl's large, so I'm not a complete pinhead.
Jun. 5th, 2007 10:28 pm (UTC)
No, no, it is THEY who are made of awesome. Tall, sexy, swarthy, funny awesome. MMMMMMMMMM.

Okay, so I'm not the only one who can't wear (properly) adult hats?! I find the ones that fit my 10 year old daughter fit me perfectly. I think I may be a complete pinhead... Let's see: you and Essene come dance on my head. *badumbumching!*
Jun. 5th, 2007 10:36 pm (UTC)
Are you kidding me? You are so hot I would totally tap you, in that I would run behind you and tap you on the shoulder and go, hey lady, you're like, totally hot. And you'd punch me in the nose and scream for the police. So many dates end that way. *sigh*

And yes, I can relate with the wringing of hands because omg there's no dialogue, or understanding and you just want to sit people down and really nut things out and get rid of these silly misunderstandings - but you need to shake it off because a) you can't have a reasonable conversation with unreasonable people, and b) some people have huge big chips on their shoulders and want to be able to blame their lives on others and roll around in their own negativity. Best to shake your head slowly and sigh and just turn around and ignore them.

Plus they smell funny.

So in conclusion you're good looking and nice. Beeyotch.

I'm going to warn you: I've been watching nothing but Little Britain for the past two hours and I cannot shake Vicky Pollard's voice.

You are WELL out of order calling me a bitch and nice, I've got fourteen ASBOS for trafficking and shoplifting, except I wasn't shoplifting, except I was, but I wasn't, except I was and anyway I couldn't have been because my friend Shondelle was well freaked on acid at the time, except it wasn't acid it was some milk that had gone bad.

I'm sorry, you were saying? :D

I've shaken it off - I just came across a random post in someone's journal (that I've NEVER interacted with) and it was from the perspective of the person knowing me, and yet? Just weird. (I think you're right: I completely got a whiff of hot plastic and fish scales from their journal.)

1. You and DT! I've never seen her in a hat and probably never will.
10. I wouldn't love you as much if you weren't mean. Stay mean. mean = honest.

::watches you write Will/Sacha with fascination::
Jun. 5th, 2007 10:53 pm (UTC)
1. Heeeee! She just commented, saying as much!
10. Awwwww. SMOOCH!

(And seriously - the hot is just writing itself. Except for how I took a few hours' break to overdose on Little Britain and the Catherine Tate Show and now I'm writing chav-fic. What?!)
Jun. 6th, 2007 01:26 am (UTC)
Knots? It's like you are the female batman! With your awesome powers of knottery, you could protect from all manner of evil doers.

And better a small head then a huge one. My husband's family had humongous heads, thank goodness he did not pass that trait to my children. My s-i-l was very unhappy at the large bowling balls she gave birth to. And one of my nephews is all head. At the age of 9, he was already wearing an adult extra-large in the hat department. I don't know how his neck keeps that huge scary thing upright.
Jun. 6th, 2007 01:35 am (UTC)
See, that's a good point. All of my babies had lovely little heads, and as I had hard and fast labor (natural with the last one) that's a GOOD THING they inherited my wee head. (Their heads seen normal sized now...)

I could be the Knotter! Knottage? Knot Maker! *bowlines us all to FREEDOM* Heeee!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
