drakyndra: The Music Meister demands you sing! (Death Note: Smirky Light)

Look, sir, memes! It's got me posting again, anyhow.

I got this from [livejournal.com profile] yinake who so kindly roped me into this thing, bless.

The rules, if anyone else wants to play:
1) Comment to this and I will give you 3 (fictional) people. ** Male and/or female, if you are so inclined. Just say so.
2) Post this meme to your LJ with your answers. **Feel free to answer in the comments here if you like.
3) Provide pictures/text descriptions and the names of the 3 people.
4) Label whom you would shag, marry and (push off a) cliff.

I'd also say, if we are less familiar, give me some fandoms to pick from, so I don't pick anyone you don't know.

Anyway, Yina gave me Spike, Light and Suzaku. Because we apparently have the same taste in men.

Have some pictures with your meme )

Memes. Boo-yeah
I am currently being grumpy at Supanova. Conventions going to be on next weekend, and they still have posted a schedule online. How am I supposed to know which day I want to go to if I don't know what stuff is on? /whines

I was actually getting all prepared and everything. I did my assignment that isn't due for another week this weekend, just so I have less assignmentage to do next weekend.

*pouts at the universe refusing to be helpful for my desires*

Aside from my productiveness in writing up assignments, I also bring you a collection of random silly things I found online I found between writing paragraphs. Because that's just what I do, apparently. But thank you, internets, for informing all the people who have stranger lives than I

So, there's the blog of this guy who goes around asking authors to insult him when they sign books.

There's a guy who glued a tiny sequined hat to his head.

And there's Stephen Colbert singing "Friday". Yes, that Friday.

And have a meme I think I yoinked from [livejournal.com profile] rhipowered without actually commenting on. (Sorry, Rhi! *hides*)

iTunes meme. Or LOL, look at all the silly music Drakyndra has )
Tell me you want to play and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms. Then update your journal and answer the following questions:

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favorite episodes/books/movies, etc?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think more people should get into this fandom?

I yoinked this meme from [livejournal.com profile] xwingace, who gave me the following fandoms: Code Geass, Firefly and Thursday Next/Fforde

Code Geass )

Firefly )

Thursday Next/Jasper Fforde in general )

If you don't want to actually participate, feel free to just comment on my questions. Or you can volunteer yourself!
Another actual post for once, though this is very possibly due to be the last one for a while (I'm in Las Vegas from tomorrow morning - early tomorrow morning - until Saturday evening, and then in New York from Monday to Friday after that. And then I fly home on Sunday, which means I'll have about two non-busy days until I get back to Australia).

Anyway, I see fandom has failed to implode once more. At least any more than usual. I'll probably go LJ MIA for a bit, as I shall be busy which such excitements as seeing the Cirque du Soleil, or having a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon.

And whatever other excitments we can find in Vegas. I mean, I sure there's going to be something fun to do, anyway. ;)

I'm actually organised for my graduation when I get back! Well, I have robes booked, which is good. Speaking of that date, anything interesting happening, election-wise? America kinda sucks for international news.

And for a bit of fun, the greatest meme in the history of memeage:


We could all use a little bit of Old Spice Man in our lives. I certainly could, anyway. (Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lizbee, whom I ganked that meme off). Sadly, I do not possess her ability to come up with a suitably suave intro for it)
...Suddenly having two new icon spaces isn't really a good reason to get a new icon just because it makes me laugh uncontrollably, is it?

Also, I totally called it in other post about FMA scanlations. They don't make things better at all. ;_;

Spoilers in this cut! )

Incidentally, my suspicion that FMA is going to end with 108 chapters is increasing. Because, well, this has to be the darkest hour before the dawn.

On a lighter FMA related note, there is this post, for all your inappropriately lulzy greeting card needs. (There are chapter 104 spoilers in the comments, though).

And the promo trailer for the FMA:B dub. Which starts in the US on Valentine's Day.

And, now for something completely different: A meme I yoinked from [livejournal.com profile] ypaladinofchaos.

Leave a comment saying, "COMMENT" and I will give you five words I associate with you. Then post about what they mean to you, along with this, at your journal.

My answers are: Behind the cut )
And so endeth my Internship. Last day and all today.

At least it ended on a good note. If by "good note" one means "had very little work to do, so spent most of the day messing around on the Internet and chatting with people who came up to ask how I liked my time there. And to compliment my haircut."

(Yeah, I got my hair cut the other day. It is now... much shorter than it used to be. Possibly the shortest I have ever had it. I was going to take a picture to show you guys, but I couldn't get a decent one - as always, I Do Not Photograph Well - so no camwhoring for you.)

Anyway, back to Interning. My supervisor gave me what sounded like a decent enough write-up. And we had an ice-cream party for my last day. No, really - at afternoon tea, someone brought in ice-cream and mini cones, and we ate that. Which was very nice of them.

So now I just need to do the reflective essay, which will be easy. Huzzah!

Also: Have a meme.

Leave me a comment saying "UNICORNSICE-CREAM!"
I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

I grabbed this from [livejournal.com profile] robotlove, and she asked me the following questions:

Check out my ~*~amazing~*~ answers behind the cut )

I reserve the right to ask people exceedingly stupid and/or random questions if they respond to this meme.
Okay, so it's not so much a gratuitous icon post as a gratuitous icon meme. But I'm apparently feeling quite gratuitous right now, so there you can.

I got this from [livejournal.com profile] peekaydee, but anyone is free to comment and join the ~chain of memery~.

Instructions are:

1. Reply to this post with 'Icons!', and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will - allegedly - create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

In which I talk icons )

So, let me know if you want in, and I'll suggest icons at you.
I'm aware that my posting has been somewhat... sporadic over the last few weeks. Though it's kinda understandable, what with assignments and exams and all. But those are done for now! But it has also come to my attention that I haven't had many comments lately (valid, since I doubt you all care much about my exams).

But I feel like chatting with you guys about something, and since the recent Big Thing online seems to be utterly rage-inducing, I think I'll sit that out and go for an meme I'm pinching from like half my flist:

Name a fandom, and I'll give you the scoop on at least three of my unpopular opinions related to that fandom.

You guys should know my fandoms. If not try my interests or my icons. Or you could just throw names of things you think I am familiar with.
Because one of the downsides of swotvac and exam study aside from the whole having to study deal is how it sort of really kills my social life, and thus gives me not all that much post about, I am gratuitously memeing.

Ta to [livejournal.com profile] londonesque for this meme, even if it appears that the last time I made a meme post, it was this very meme. Hey, that was five months ago. However in honour of this recent memeage, I shall use only icons I have picked up since then. Which is actually quite a few. (Excluding the first two categories, which are Old And Boring Icons)


...Yeah, I am not at all waiting for the new FMA scanlations.

Note: I have also managed to make this meme mildly redundant before I've even gotten any comments, on account of some more icon fiddling. And so it goes
So, it appears half of LJ seems to be, yet again, freaking out about the possibility of OMG LJ IS DYING!!! and grabbing accounts elsewhere. Inksome seems to be the current favourite journaling service this time around.

So, in a fit of predictability, I got an Inksome account, too. Feel free to friend it if you have an account yourself. Just... don't expect much use there unless the LJ situation starts to look really shakey.

...and now I have to remember what other Just In Case accounts I have. I had a GreatestJournal one, before that died; I have an InsaneJournal; and my JF is used, but mostly for wank comms. There may be more I've forgotten about.

On a vaguely related note, I shall once more do what everyone else is doing, and do that icon meme. If nothing else, it means I get to show off some of my new icons.

Look, Ma, icons! )
Because like half my flist was doing it. Also, I need better Australia icons

See just how Australian I really am! )

Judging from numbers, I am more Australian than [livejournal.com profile] lizbee, but less than [livejournal.com profile] purple_smurf

In other news, my iPod is being a nuisance, so it is going in to be fixed tomorrow. Yes, I know this is my fault for dropping it.

Damn, this thing is addictive )

The hilarity, it never ends!
Everyone else seems to be doing this meme, so I figured I might as well have a shot.

That, and it stops this from a being a GIP, but I digress...

Cut for very many questions )

What will happen when you meet the Doctor?
Favourite Color
You live In a quarry in the Home Counties
Your companions are Your disfunctional family
The Doctor arrived because He was trying to pull
You first met the Doctor when He collided with you in the street
The end result was You clapped your hands and swore never to believe in fairies again

...See, when you're deeply sleep deprived after two assignments due in two days, one of which you were only given on Tuesday, this sort of thing actually seems funny.

*sighs* I need more sleep

Your Score: Sad Cookie Cat

71 % Affection, 36 % Excitability , 60 % Hunger

You are the classic Shakespearian tragedy of the lolcat universe. The sad story of a baking a cookie, succumbing to gluttony, and in turn consuming the very cookie that was to be offered. Bad grammar ensues.

I couldn't resist doing the 'Which Doctor are you?' meme )

And for some other random lunacy, from the Harmonians: How Harry/Ginny is like Hitler/Eva Braun.

You know, this July is going to be spectacular, wank-wise.

Also, a new comm of joy: [livejournal.com profile] ihasatardis. Doctor Who cat macros for the win!
And ye olde Uni has started up all over again. Today I had one Behavioural Neuroscience lecture, and a bunch of stuff for Contemporary Culture and Media. CCM looks to be terribly fun and interesting, in that mildly pretentious way that a lot of Arts subjects seem to have.

Also, for one of our assessment tasks, we have to keep a blog. THE HORROR! *chuckles*

And Neuro's not bad at the moment, though I shall have to try and memorise all the different parts of the brain and their functions so I don't get too horribly confused. However, since we're currently doing historical theories of how the brain works (which are interestingly wacky), I have a bit of time to do so.

Oh, I just realised I never commented on O-Week and the CHAS table. Things went reasonably well, I do believe - there were less people around than last year, plus the whole Union thing causing weird price alterations. But we still managed to get about 90 members, which is pretty damn good. Though I had hoped for 100

But how could we not do well, when our t-shirts had something as truly awesome on them as this... )

Some Quotes of amusement:

[livejournal.com profile] chifley: "I had sex with your mother, and it was unsatisfying."

My CCM lecturer: "For those of you who aren't aware, the Sony Walkman was what we had before we had iPods."

drakyndra is happy.
You're a rosy-cheeked ray of f'ing sunshine 24/7. I bet you smile a lot and little things don't get you down. Must be nice. Fuchsia's definitely your color.

It's like it knows me!
On the twelfth day of Christmas, drakyndra sent to me...
Twelve pears drumming
Eleven scarves procrastinating
Ten cats a-reading
Nine badges plocking
Eight icons op-shopping
Seven quotes a-shopping
Six daleks a-dancing
Five hu-u-u-ugging joss
Four star wars
Three good omens
Two links lists
...and a fiction in a buffy.
Get your own Twelve Days:


And some random things what are about fandom:

Torchwood has been renewed for a second series. Which is... yayness, sort of, though I'm hoping they improve on this series (That said, the last few eps have shown some improvement. Maybe it's the lack of Chibnall)

Under number 13 on the Doctor Who advent calender, you can see a short trailer for The Runaway Bride. Very squee inducing (and I like the music).

Doctor Who S3 spoilers can be found here and here. Significant camera shots of hand-holding are mentioned (which reminds me, I must try and have a "Doctor holding hands with people who aren't Rose" picspam done by S3, so I can refer back to it when people whine about that fact)

Oh, and people whom I am sending cards and pressies to, expect them to be late because I haven't sent them yet.

Also, WTF is with the Update Journal page?
