Reply to this post with the phrase 'Findled in the checkout line' and I will free-associate five ityms of varying importance with you. Post about them in your journal when you spread the meme.
via [ profile] rawri:

1. Traveling.
Can't live without it. I suspect it's partly inherited, this tendency to lead a life between plane flights. The idea that my life IS getting on a plane, going somewhere, and doing insane and interesting things until I get that itchin' in my shoes again (as the lady Kimya likes to say.) If New York gets to be home, and that there is a real hopeful if, it'll be at least part thanks to the way it's so connected to most anywhere else.

2. Success.
Can't happen if I don't shoot for it. I'm starting to think that maybe a good measure of how advantageous the next path will be is how much it utterly terrifies me.

3. Tim.
Is going to have a rough month. His fortunes are inversely related to mIne more often than I like to admit. Sorry, kiddo. We've had a weird sort of mental sublet thing going on for going on two years now. He pays rent in entertainment, and lightening up my universe.

4. Food.
I like it? In spite of the unfortunate habit of forgetting meals. Been raised to believe it's important to obtain & consume good food, and to directly connect various failures of mind and body with failure to do so. Dang, I need lunch.

5. Demon-claws. (art)
The best stuff I do on paper always has a little element of the creepy in it. I try for cute, I do, and it either looks manufactured or vague and blurry. Or it turns out creepy TOO, ref. NYC Heartless.
I still don't remember drawing those demon claws. But now I want to try again.

And via [ profile] murasaki_kaze:
Attn: lexiphiles! Comment here with an unusual word you happen to know and like, and maybe we'll give each other one we don't know. Today's word from me is polymath: one who dabbles in multiple fields of interest.

I'm... pretty sure I'm watching a show, about three girls who eat their way across Japan.

They go find famous dishes, places that serve food in each area that's famous for being 1) really good, 2) not found most places, and 3) served in the biggest portions. And then they order the biggest thing on the menu and eat it together.
Impassioned recap under the cut. I'm braindead. Enjoy ur brainless!entry. )

Oh yeah. Meme: favorite poem.

I don't really feel literate with questions like that. It's not like I can think of a whole lot.

But this's the one means the most to me, second place goes to "Television Zombie" which I can't remember how it goes.

And another regrettable thing about death )

The first seven people that respond to this post will get something made by me. It will be about, or tailored to, those first seven people who respond.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
+ I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
+ What I create will be just for you.
+ It'll be done this year.
+ You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a mix tape. It may be fic, or a poem. I may draw or paint something. I might bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
+ I reserve the right to do something extremely strange (you really shouldn't be worried at this point, muahahaha).

Supposedly you have to repoast this in your journal if you want something, but I don't think that's worth the limitation. Fire away, mah friendz.

*ETA: Done for Bah, Mab, Mel, Kero, Crys. Still to do for Koni, Jenny, and Eva.

fffft sure

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In August I bought porn for [ profile] jan_the_verse (10 points). Last Saturday I gave [ profile] icybrian a life-saving blood transfusion (50 points). In January I turned [ profile] rawri in for tearing the tag off a mattress (3 points). In June I punched [ profile] tmartian42 in the arm (-10 points). Last Tuesday I gave change to a homeless guy (19 points).

Overall, I've been nice (72 points). For Christmas I deserve a Nintendo Wii!


Write your letter to Santa! Enter your LJ username:

Put your MP3 player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first is the title.

Limited to English, and sometimes I stretched the one-line limit. The sheer proportion of English songs I have that are relentlessly silly may have biased the meme toward awesome. I claim full responsibility.

Tom Lehrer, yeah, Paul and Storm, sure, but I think it was the Evil Dead musical that made this one. )

G'wan. Tell me anything, internet.

**edit: Hunh, comments full. Feel free to take the meme here: anon is on, IP logging is off, tell me anything you like. I still feel like listening.

Typhoon went through earlier today, that was fun. Nice to be driven home from wark.

Need to catch up on memes, and sleeps, and arts, and various. ♥ Life is okay, but needs more cowbell ice cream. And I want to pick another character to RP.

Comment with the name of a character from any fandom I follow, and I'll respond with a few articles of my own personal headcanon.

Icon meme, you know the drill. Comment and I'll pick 7 that you have to explain. Possibly.

Rules: Post the explanation of where your username came from. Then tag TEN users whose explanations you'd like to hear. If you are tagged post the explanation to your page.

"Lina Darkstar" was the name of an FF OC who was probably a Mary Sue, only I didn't know that term at the time. Which would make it a long time ago, internet-wise. Anyway, nobody fell in love with her brown eyes/blonde ponytail/foul mouth, and her weapon was that she punched things. She wasn't strong, though, just clever- she thumbed beasties in the eyes and snapped giant-insect wings and cast low-level thunder spells directly into monsterbrains and so forth. So I was fond enough of her to take her name when I hopped on my first RPG forum some five or six years ago... she was pretty new at that point, so let's say she's a six-year-old construct by now.

I dropped fanfic fairly soon, but by the time I was tired of that RPG forum I was rather used to being Lina. So I kept it when I strolled on into Icy's, and again when I hopped into Livejournal as an extension of that social circle.

A few weeks ago Livejournal deleted & purged a lot of old usernames, and I amused myself for a few minutes searching shorter variants of mine. I didn't expect 'lina', 'dark', or 'star' to be open, but I had brief hope for [ profile] arkstar, which I use in chat ever since we gave each other One Piece names and I spur-of-the-moment dramatically revealed that I was actually Lina D. Arkstar.

And then [ profile] arks was open, and I thought to myself, how many people can say they have a four-letter username that makes sense and sounds nice? So I splurged on a rename token, 'cause in the end I'd rather have that than even a paid account.

I tag!

Reply to this post, and I will tell you my favorite icon of yours. Then post this to your own journal using your own favorite icon.

I don't get to use this one often enough, and I want more crossover icons. 8D

The first 10 people to comment on this post get to request a drabble or a sketch on a subject/character of their choosing. In return, they can post this in their journal if they want. Post all fandoms you're willing to write/draw for.

Once again, I can neither write nor draw half as well as any of you! I hope you'll request something anyway.

Random Fandoms:
One Piece (up to #248)
Final Fantasy 4, 6, 8, 10, X-2, Tactics
Shadow of the Colossus (up to #12)
Most Ghiblis (except Porco Rosso)
Last Exile
Azumanga Daioh
SNES RPGs: Earthbound, Breath of Fire, Secret of Mana, Illusion of Gaia

ETA: I love you all. ♥ 6 taken, 4 open!

Edit edit: SUPER-LOVE. Requests CLOSED.

I'm slated for:

One Piece: one OT5, two Nami/Vivis, and the crew vs. a Colossus (because [ profile] ezelek wins the WORLD).

Final Fantasy: One Edgar/Anna -finally done!, one Cayenne -done!- and one Delita+Ramza. - Done!

Ghibli: Laputa! Oh man I want to do a Laputa painting. - Done!

Nanoha: My choice of character. - Done! Fate, drabble and paint-sketch. Bardiche is cool.

Earthbound: Done! Two drawbles, colored pencil on cloth paper. A dinosaur and Mr. Saturn.
arkster: Excited dragon is excited. (Chopper: KYUN)
They've been piling up.

The 9-11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation.

Video: The models in the ads. Like [ profile] kahmelon said: it's one thing to read about how models are make-upped and their pictures photoshopped to within an inch of their lives. It's another to actually see it. That was something else.

Octopus camoflauge. Is this for reals?

Global Orgasm: wank for peace.

Ahhhahahaha oh my god, I want this for Christmas. No, that's a lie. I want to GIVE THIS to someone for Christmas. I just have to figure out who, because, DAMN. xDD

Memes: seduction quiz and Santa letter. Because I'm a memesheep. )

Finally, OP ANNOUNCEMENT: there are FIVE Omake. This almost makes up for none of them being a continuation of Chopperman. x3. Now if only I could find them in raw, non-YouTube form, my life would be complete. In very related news, GIP.

Back to work for me!
arkster: Excited dragon is excited. (Chopper is in heaven.)
Go to my userpics and find:
1. One icon that makes you automatically think of me.
2. One icon that you think I should TOTALLY use more often.
3. One icon that you don't get/needs more explanation/you have no idea why the hell I have it.
4. Comment using an icon of yours that you LOVE, and tell me why you picked THAT one too.

Eventually I might even have some icons that are not One Piece. IT COULD HAPPEN.

In other news, Reve, Sogno, and Sueno are creepy little children. And FF6j might even go up before I leave. OR IT MIGHT NOT. Who knows.

I snapped awake, and listened. Carefully.

And then I rolled out of bed and killed the roach. Ground its head half off with a handy shoe.

Puttered around the room, stopped, listened. And then pulled the bag out of the trash and ground the scrabbling remainder into paste.

In other news, I must've been exhausted; I fell asleep with the experimental Nami tattoo still on. Fortunately the hairspray seems to be a good fixative; no smearing on anything else at all and only a little flaking off! Also that makes two nights in a row. Last night I went out with studio people with the Nami-tat on my arm, and the night before I went out with mom wearing the casual MODE outfit in celebration of shoooes. Casual means that the skirt was nonskanky and the Log Pose was left off because it is still in pieces. Need to fix that this week. Anyway it is fun to do public cosplay with shit like Nami because it is so simple and casual it is like sekrit code.

Anyway now it's 2am and I'm awake. Whoooo.

p.s. It's a meme! Comment and tell me which FF character you think I resemble. ♥
