Answers to this quiz inside

Okay, so, nobody got 3 or 4 yet.

Extra clues (plus repeat of the originals)

3. Star sapphires take a week to crystallize properly. Would diamonds or emeralds do?
Extra clue; same character: "Sorry, miss. I was giving myself an oil-job"
4. Wiping out the human race? That's a great idea. That's great. But more of a long-term thing. I mean, first we have to focus on more immediate goals.
Extra clue; different character this time: "I'm in Insurance"

Spoilers for answers: )

D. Have those on your friends list try to guess what the movie is.
E. Bold the quote once it has been correctly identified and place the guesser's user name directly after the quote.

1. I loved it when you nuked Las Vegas. Suitably biblical ending to the place, don't you think? [livejournal.com profile] gaspode got this one
2. Negative. I am a meat popsicle guessed by [livejournal.com profile] xanthipe.
3. Star sapphires take a week to crystallize properly. Would diamonds or emeralds do?
4. Wiping out the human race? That's a great idea. That's great. But more of a long-term thing. I mean, first we have to focus on more immediate goals.
5. I've just got pixlexia, OK? got by [livejournal.com profile] l_j_b and [livejournal.com profile] tlanti
6. I know a little German. He's sitting over there. Another point to [livejournal.com profile] gaspode
7. Look at it this way: in a hundred years, who's gonna care? [livejournal.com profile] gaspode who also identified which scene:)
8. Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something. got by [livejournal.com profile] xanthipe, [livejournal.com profile] omylouse and [livejournal.com profile] the_smut_fairy
9. Whoever wrote this episode should DIE. [livejournal.com profile] the_smut_fairy
10. Don't empty my mind! Please, I beg you! My mind is all I have! I've spent my whole life trying to fill it! [livejournal.com profile] omylouse

Was expecting someone to have got #5. #1 and #6 are slightly more obscure, still think I might need to add an extra clue for #4. I think most people will have seen it, but it's not a very quotable movie.

And feel free to post and guess. They're screened so you won't spoiler them.

Tell me what you think of me.

Try to do one of these each year.  It's nice to keep track

37 questions about 2010 ) Really I've been a little stressed all this year. Think I should have done Serenity but I wasn't sure if I'd be able to cope. Certainly didn't have the cocky self-confidence that I managed in 2009. Contracting seems to have stabilised though. So wish I could have seen the Bristolians a little more. I am really really pleased I went on that holiday. Worth every penny.

Top 5's

Okay.  Thanks, to my cous [livejournal.com profile] moonwolf1988  for these

Top five books you want to write some day.
Cut for length )
luckykaa: (Default)
I went to London and saw [livejournal.com profile] tinkerbell1980 and assorted other fiends.  Went to Wagamama.  Helped other people eat their food. 

Something about Tink always cheers me up endlessly.  Maybe it's because she really likes me and there's never any doubt that she means what she says.  Maybe it's just her boundless enthusiasm.  Maybe it's just the hugs. 

Whatever.  I'm feeling a lot happier than I have for a long time. 

Plus Meme time

Ask me my Top Five Whatevers. Fannish or literary or otherwise. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! Fandoms, ice cream flavours, books I might get around to writing one day, physics equations, cartoon moments, explosions, OTPs, ideal holiday destinations, goals for the future, celebrity crushes, books I wish would be made into movies, love songs. And I will answer them all in a new post (or in comments). Possibly with pictures.

1. If you could have a superpower what would it be?

Tricky.  I've always wanted to be able to fly.  On the other hand, the really cool super heroes have the funky gymnastics stuff going on.  And being able to walk through walls just seems intriguing. 

Although the best super hero power is the one shared by Spiderman, Buffy The Vampire Slayer and James Bond. 

The ability to always come up with a witty quip.

2. What character from any book, film or video game would you like to be most?

The Librarian in Discworld.  He's really got it made.  He's happy with the simple pleasures of bananas, gets a lot of respect both for his academic skill and his ability to grab things with his feet and gets to spend a lot of time reading.

3. What is your favourite time of year?

Start of summer, just after the clocks go forward.  There's nothing nicer than going for a walk in a summer evening, when it's still warm and still quite light.  Everyone's happy because the weather's improved, it isn't too hot yet

4. If you could assasinate anyone (they can already be dead) who would it be?

Fred Phelps (The God Hates Fags guy).  On one hand I respect that he has the right to spout his hateful anti-everyone tirades, but on the other hand I can't think of a better target for this one bullet I have. 

5. What would your dream house be like?

Not too large.  Guest bedroom with en suite, a huge bath in the main bathroom a gas cooker and a toilet with syphonic flush. Also a garden large enough for barbecues and a hot tub. 

If anyone wants their own questions then leave a comment saying "ORANGES" (or any other fruit of your choice)
- I'll respond by asking you five questions.
- Update your journal with the answers to your questions.
- Include this explanation and offer to ask other people questions, if you so choose.

Aside from the two of you who actually posted jokes:P

It's now the year of the Tiger.  Most of us are going to forget and date everything by the year of the Ox.  If you're born this year (or you're 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72 or 84 this year), you're physically powerful, gracious, independent and brave.

Happy thoughts day 2:

Saw District 9.  Drank some wine.  Had roast pork.  Even got the crackling to work (make sure it's dry, crank the heat right up at the start).  Always a nice way to spend n evening. 

District 9 was great, and actually the small screen treatment rather works with the documentary style

Been way too gloomy recently.  Need a positive mindset.  Hence retrying this meme.

1. Post about something that made you happy today, even if it’s just a small thing.
2. Do this every day for a week without fail.
3. This did say tag 11 friends, but I'll change it and tag all of you.

Bought a new hat and a pinboard and a shirt and have a tidy flat.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

"Next, heat the oil in a 7 inch (18cm) frying pan and fry the onion for 5 minutes before adding the pepper, tomatoes, garlic, oregano and tomato puree.  Continue to cook the sauce over a medium heat for about 10 minutes.

"Towards the end of the cooking time boil the pasta for 8 minutes.   Meanwhile finish off the sauce by adding the anchovies, capers and olives and keep the heat low until the pasta is ready."
