Click here to take the Serenity Firefly Personality Test going around again! I love it when my favorite memes come back.

The Johari Window was invented by Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham in the 1950s as a model for mapping personality awareness. By describing yourself from a fixed list of adjectives, then asking your friends and colleagues to describe you from the same list, a grid of overlap and difference can be built up.
1. Are you a vegetarian? Vegan?
No, but I eat quite a lot of vegetarian meals since the husband is mostly one.

2. What's your favorite food?
Depends on the mood and the season. A fresh cucumber from the garden on a hot summer day, a bowl of pot roast over rice on a freezing cold one, the carrots that have stored lots of sugar in the fall that taste like candy... plus bacon. Everything is better with bacon.Read more... )

You scored as Postmodernist. Postmodernism is the belief in complete open interpretation. You see the universe as a collection of information with varying ways of putting it together. There is no absolute truth for you; even the most hardened facts are open to interpretation. Meaning relies on context and even the language you use to describe things should be subject to analysis.

Postmodernist - 81%
Romanticist - 81%
Cultural Creative - 75%
Existentialist - 69%
Idealist - 44%
Modernist - 38%
Materialist - 31%

Today's entry has been brought to you by the letter A, and the number 30.

Reply and I'll give you a letter, and you have to find thirty songs that start with that letter and post them to your journal.

[ profile] squeegman gave me "A" -- I tried to make this fairly indicative of the larger collection of songs on my iPod.Read more... )
I'll start with the letter of the alphabet, 'cause it's easier than scrolling back and finding the questions:

[ profile] lunatopaz gave me the letter I. I am now to choose ten things that begin with I and write what I like about them. I will assign a letter to anyone who comments on this post, so that you, too, may waste ridiculous amounts of your valuable work time.Read more... )

I don't actually play the game, but I was in the mood for a meme:

Now I should say something entertaining...umm.. Project Runway hasn't ended yet. I don't like two-part finales. Too much suspense for me. I've started watching Newsradio, and I appreciate the lack of buildup to the two people getting together -- I'm more interested these days in the relationships themselves. Sports Night almost made me crazy with the courtship episodes. I have another busy day at work, and I like it. All of the things I'm doing right now are the fun parts of my job.
via [ profile] stitchinthyme: Your meme mission, should you choose to accept it, is this - post 1-5 of your absolute favorite recipes. Easy stuff that you routinely do off the top of your head. Y'know - the kind of thing us average citizens could do w/ minimal prep time. You may also share one "hard" recipe from a book or other source, if you desire. Bonus points if you provide color commentary, or explain why this receipe is your favorite.

pasta w/sundried tomatoes and walnuts; stuffed squash; hamburger donburi; soyrizo; stirfry with ramen noodles )

I changed this meme. I chose interesting sentences from the first entry of each month, 'cause mine was too boring otherwise.Read more... )
today's word of the day is tmesis, but the definition wasn't clear enough for me, so I looked it up on Wikipedia:

Tmesis (Greek, τμῆσις "a cutting") is a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is inserted into another word, often for humorous effect. The insertion may occur between the parts of a compound word, of an infinitive (split infinitive), or between syllable boundaries (dystmesis).

Also referred to as diacope, or tumbarumba; the latter due to the popularity of tmesis in Australian speech. Linguists sometimes describe tmesis as a form of infixing.

Examples: "I can't find it any-blooming-where" (see also expletive infixation). Perhaps the most famous example of tmesis employed within a proper name is the popular American expression of surprise or frustration: "Jesus H. Christ" For many years the British have used the similar "Christ All-bleeding-mighty". In The Simpsons, Ned Flanders sometimes inserts the nonsense word "diddly" into the middle of words.


So, we had the bazaar bizarre madness this weekend, and it went well, although we had too much yarn to make it easy to browse through it, and it was too crowded for good browsing. I think maybe a second rack for yarn may be needed. I found a few good presents for other people in my wandering as well, once it calmed down and you could move around -- for the first four hours or so it was wall-to-wall packed. Mob scene. Glad I was behind a table instead of wandering through. I'll post before and after pictures when I have a chance. Was good to see [ profile] anneball and [ profile] tisana - yay! Hope y'all had fun.
