Who's Your Ideal Disney Guy?

brought to you by Quizilla

This didnt surprise me, for some reason...

I had a lovely weekend which I spent watching dvd’s, and making things to send out for Postcard x. My new addiction seems to be making handmade postcards, mostly either collage ones or with watercolors. I need to get some old magazines out of storage, because I have gone through all of the ones in my closet so many times that everything in them that is good collage material has already been snipped out.

It is nearly 5am, and yet going to sleep just doesn’t sound all that appealing. I’m actually in the mood to clean, but every time I try I nearly fall over from being so tired, so I don’t think that’s going to work out very well.

I would love to post all of the super-cute pictures I took of Gandalf the Sparkly White, but I still haven’t found web hosting I can afford, and therefore have to use my ever-so-generous 2MB of AOL space sparingly. Therefore, I’ll just post this one little picture of him, even though he deserves far more:

I found this quote in someone’s journal and emailed it to myself to post a while back, but I failed to put down who it came from, so sorry for the lack of credit! I couldn’t believe how much this sounded like me though: “I already bought myself a Britain travel book. Maybe I don't know where I'm going to live or what I'm going to be when I grow up, but damnit, I know where I'm going on a vacation.”

Going through emails to myself, I also found this one off of the Harry Potter Galleries. Sorry again that I don’t know who said this, but it cracked me up:

“A long time ago, this list discussed what happens if a female Animagus is pregnant and doesn't switch back to human form before giving birth, and concluded that Crookshanks is McGonagall's love child by a Muggle-type Persian tomcat. --Rita Winston”

I am absolutely freaking out that January is nearly over and I still haven’t done anything off of my List of Things To Do. I made a resolution to do at least 10 of them this year, so I figured if I shot for one a month, I should end up ok. Think I can find a way to get one done within the next week?

On the plus side, I’ve gotten a bit of background work done to put me on my way to completing things on the list. I’ve decided which vegetables I want to grow this year (green beans, tomatoes, and cucumbers, as well as growing sunflowers), I’ve made plans to attend a Renaissance Faire (Scarborough Faire in April with Kelly and Jim), made plans to go to LA next summer with Brooke (Which will take care of that one about seeing the hollywood sign and such), and have wonderful people sending me recipes for my recipe book. That all has to count for something, right?

In other news, I completely slept through the Super Bowl today. Isn’t that crazy? I was thinking about it last night, and I generally watch, but it didn’t even cross my mind until late tonight. Did I miss any good commercials?

Its supposed to get up to 42 tomorrow. 42!! In a land where the highs have been in the teens, that is a heat wave! I am very excited. Hopefully it will even be warm enough to ride soon, and on a day that Susie is off so that we can go. Hooray for above-freezing temperatures!

And now because you know I couldn’t get through an entry without mentioning LOTR…

I was driving last week, as usual, and began thinking about how the books, movie, and general fan culture have had such an influence on me. Thus, I present to you, the Top 12 Ways that LOTR culture has worked its way into my daily life:

1-I have adopted Ian McKellen’s roar of general indignance into my daily life. I roar at traffic. I roar when the cable goes out.

2-Find self thinking or writing v. much similar to style of Very Secret Diaries. (This is a very lovely humor site. Thanks to them I giggle at strange times during the movies when I am reminded of lines from the Diaries)

3-Am quite proud to hold the title of “Pervy Elf Fancier”

4-Refer to the extended dvd set as “My Precious”.

5-When asked how I’m doing, I have been known to reply “Good, but still not King.”

6-I am learning to speak Elvish. Both Sindarin and Quenya.

7-I know what the hell Sindarin and Quenya are. That alone says I am quite a nerd.

8-When people piss me off, I have been known to call them “filthy hobbitses” In fact, this morning, I noticed that Tallulah was not in my bed when I woke up. Mom admitted that she put her outside. First words out of my mouth? “You stole it! You stole my precious! Filthy hobbitses!”

9-If I notice that I am hungry right after breakfast? Not to worry! That’s what Second Breakfast is for. Why, you do know about Second Breakfast, don’t you?

10-Can’t look at a red sunset without thinking “A red sun rises. Blood has been spilled this night”

11-I am planning on taking up archery, just because this movie makes it look so fantastic.

12-I wander around saying things like “Do you have partridge? Bring the partridge!” and even find myself using the phrase “It grieves me to talk about this…” on a regular basis.
