filmnoir: (Reading)
Yeah, I know I'm a little late, but here is a meme borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] stefanie_bean regarding banned books from libraries (last week was a national week commemorating this). Hmm....I have read quite a bit.

Could this be 3-D Warhol? heh


And like writing, one should show rather than tell betimes in relationships.

I was going to write a whole lot more but, alas, my muddled mind from last night does not know how to organize or even comment about it really; not that there were negative things entailed with the events--rather, some good things came out of it--so rather than continue being vague I'll save it for another entry here in the future perhaps.

Speaking of vague, I had an odd dream where I spent time hanging around a sort of communal-type house: people would come and go, adults and kids, in the two-story structure we were in that was a hub of activity and seemed to have a lot of positive energy. In some ways, it reminded me of the house in Frank Capra's You Can't Take It with You (1938).

The main thing with this entry though is a meme borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] trouble_brewing and [livejournal.com profile] max_ambiguity where you ask me in a comment for five interview questions about you whose responses can either be here or in your journal, whatever is easiest.

RULES: 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. No tags.

I've had a few things on my mind lately and was going to write a completely introspective and serious entry--but not right now.

I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] irisira03

Write a journal entry for this meme with six random facts about yourself. Then, pick six of your friends list and tag them - no tagbacks. These rules should be included in your entry.

1. I once worked as a seismicgrapher for the Shell Oil Company. I was talked into it by a friend who was doing the same thing. I only lasted one day. For one thing, I met up with a crew well before sunrise, the other guys being a slight step above criminal, and rode two hours into the swamps of Montmerency County (NE, lower peninsula MI) where we proceeded to trapse through bog and woods until dark that evening. My job was initially to pack into drilled holes charges of explosive with a wood stick then after some large guy with a remote detonator blew up the charge--often raising large clumps of ground to treetops--I would have to go after them and pick up the wires that were not incinerated. It is as close to a hellish job as I ever want to come close to again.

2. I realized more so this weekend my Mom can be embarassing when she doesn't shut up sometimes.

3. The second day I had moved to Detroit to attend college I walked over to Trumbull Avenue which borders the WSU campus and walked down to Tiger Stadium when it was still open to see my first major league ballgame. The Tigers played the Red Sox and a guy named Fielder hit one out of the stadium onto Chrysler Freeway (I-75). Still, it took 10 innings for the Tigers to win; I still have the ticket stub. I have wideangle pictures from inside and outside that I may scan and post here sometime.

4. I thought about N. the other day, the first woman I truly was in love with. This was tempered with regret for being so immature then as to screw everything up. I don't know why I brought that up, it's something I normally don't like to talk about.

5. I used to have a beard when I was in college. It was fairly big and often unkempt; scary looking too, yeesh. I'm glad it's gone, it always made me have a nervous tic about it, always fidgeting with it with one hand, esp the chin. If you seen anyone with a beard who does this, dear readers, that's really what it is.

6. I like a clean household with not too many things taking up space just because it's possible.

Here is a meme that asks you to fill in the first ideas that pop into your head in response to each respective question. Then repost 5 various questions in your journal to see what responses come from your friends.

1. When a woman becomes President of the United States, these three things should also happen:

2. Will David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson be forever typecast as Mulder and Scully and thus relegated to theatre work for the rest of their acting careers?

3. Do you think ipod and satellite music will usurp airwave radio?

4. Does the phrase "12 mini-dates lasting 6 minutes each" seem like a commodification of relationships/dating?

5. Should movies begin telling stories again instead of displaying effects gadgetry (Norman Jewison, Irving Thalberg Award acceptance speech, 1999 Oscars)?

I always loved these type of exercises in writing classes. Here's a meme borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] muckalarkuary. Giving yourself five minutes--and five minutes only, avid readers--write down your most immediate thoughts in a comment and keep writing until the five minutes are up. Then repost to your journal. Sound challenging?

OK then...ready...set...GO!

A meme from [livejournal.com profile] arthippy

Once you are tagged you MUST write a blog about 5 weird habits/things about you, as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next 5 people to be tagged and list their names.

1. I sometimes eat Pop Tarts after pool league nights, whatever time it is, usually late.

2. I do pick up pennies I find lying on the ground. All pennies end up in an old coffee can that holds when full ~$30.

3. Lately, before watching the featured title, I've been watching all of the DVD extras when there are some. I always hated to do that before but now I do it all the time. I can't explain why or when the shift occurred.

4. I've thought about starting correspondance (email or regular mail) with someone who lives far off but prolly still in this country.

5. I think I mentioned this before, my tendency still to sleep on my bed leaving room for someone else. Keeping the other part filled has been the real challenge.

Okay, I tag: [livejournal.com profile] l_aurens, [livejournal.com profile] viana_qoh, [livejournal.com profile] libwitch, [livejournal.com profile] trouble_brewing and [livejournal.com profile] adams_eve

How many times has someone on your friends list posted about something and you were really confused, but you didn't want to ask because you knew you SHOULD know?

How many times have you felt 'guilty' asking a close LJ friend a question that should be 'obvious'?

Well, here's your chance. If you've missed a few things, missed an entry and are confused, ask me anything.

Even something EXTREMELY basic, like where I live! I'm not allowed to get even slightly irritated at any of the questions - we've all missed things before.

In turn, though, you must repost this in your own journal. ;)
