OK, I did a meme. I promised myself a while ago I would try to keep the signal-to-noise ratio high on the journal, as I haven't posted a lot, I've avoided posting any memes, but I really enjoyed this one, and suspect many of you will as well. For one thing: Only two questions, and for another: Lovely leading lady photos from the golden (silver?) era of Hollywood!

So, via ,What Mad Men-era Female Icon Are you?

I'm an Audrey )

I wouldn't say they nailed me, but hey, they said I was Audrey Hepburn! And they were nearly-all right.

[ profile] qwrrty has inspired me

Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
Post them here for everyone to guess.
Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.

And, obviously, no fair looking them up and then guessing.

These quotes come just about verbatim from IMDb. I've changed them only to remove key characters' names. Ordered alphabetically by quote. I may have removed a few movies from my top ten either for having no quotes on IMDB or just being too darned easy (Big Lebowski, Godfather, Star Wars, etc.) or being used by [ profile] qwrrty.

1. He had a mind like Aristotle and a form like mortal sin. [ profile] jadiana - Lion in Winter

2. [He] thinks it's the end of civilization: People who are invited at 4 and arrive at 2:30.
Oh God.

3. He was dead just long enough for the murder rap to blow over. And then he had lunch. [ profile] zantony - The Usual Suspects

4. I say give them an opportunity to decorate their own cells with their personal interior decorator. [ profile] mr_niggle - Everyone Says I Love You

5. My top schools where I want to apply to are Oxford and the Sorbonne. My safety's Harvard. [ profile] zantony - Rushmore

6. Oh, God is testing us.
If He's gonna test us, why doesn't He give us a written?
- [ profile] mr_niggle - Love and Death

7. So why the sad face?
Job requirement. Happy piano players work the circus.
[ profile] bethlet - Beautiful Girls

8. Tuesday's Wednesday.

9. You've just had a bad day, that's all.
That's a masterpiece of understatement.
[ profile] calum - Bringing up Baby

10. A woman is the most fiendish instrument of torture ever devised to bedevil the days of man. [ profile] calum - O Brother, Where Art Thou?

A meme ganked from [ profile] ladybarnard.


So, here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, CD Player, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool.

Brought to you by [ profile] den_down_unda and the [ profile] yaz327.

Rules: Here are 10 songs beginning with M. If you want to play, ask for a letter in comments. I'll pick a letter, and you have to name ten favorite songs with titles beginning with that letter.

(Side note: M is HARD to narrow down. Lots of stuff starts with M. There are favorite songs which had to be excised from this list.)

Presented in very roughly chronological order, behind the cut: ).

Art Meme

The first five people to respond to this post will get some form of art, by me. I make no guarantees about what medium it will use, and it might take some time, as I have a serious long-term project on. It may take years, but you'll get something.

The only catch is, as with most memes, if you sign up you have to put this in your own journal as well, complete with disclaimer. I'm only posting it because I demanded art elsewhere and then saw this footnote.

OK, [ profile] epilady's thong kind of intrigued me, so I took the quiz. I think all these quizes are telling me something like, 'You are nurturing, nice, and boring." But let me mention the quiz alone was worth it this time.

What sort of unmentionable I am:

I am clever and unseen in jeans. Wee. And you?
creidylad: (Default)
Some days I really wonder how to tell people what is up with my life. "I played with Baby all morning, she's still cuter than hell and learning lots. I remain insanely lucky." It doesn't make for a good read.

Ah, but speaking of good reads, I treated myself to a copy of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen this weekend. It was quite good, as [ profile] zantony promised, and I'm looking forward to reading more and to the movie, but I keep wondering, what is Alan Moore's deal with rape plots? They've been in most of his work that I've seen date. I realize not all the main characters in the 'League' are meant to be sympathetic, but some of the stuff in this comic that seemed to be getting passed over as funny (a foray into a 'girl's reform school' type place plucked from Victorian erotica) actually was quite disturbing. BTW, here is a page of awesome footnotes to the whole comic book.

I gave up on reading The Amber Spyglass and loaned it to a friend. I think I am still technically in the middle of Kavalier and Clay.

Just as I'd typed all that, the phone rang. My contractor. He did show, yesterday, got most things done. Promised to return this afternoon to finish the last three... and when I heard his voice on the phone I think I got a little sharp. He was just calling to confirm that he was coming. Phew.

Meanwhile, took another quiz, pursuant to last week's revelation that I am an angel. This one claims I'm nurturing, which I guess is cool, but I don't actually see what it has to do with the angel in question. Also, despite motherhood, my ass is not actually that big.

Which ArchAngel are you most like?

Go figure, I'm an angel.

You are an angel.

OK, saw this in [ profile] cori_may's livejournal, so had to take the quiz...

Which Lady of Camelot Are You?

brought to you by Quizilla

But I wanted to be Dame Ragnul! I wonder if they even had her as an option. I think this is a cool quiz. How did they even find personalities for half the women of Camelot? I mean, how do you assign values for Lynette? I wonder if the non-maidens from the Castle of Maidens are even options? And damn that Guinevere, I'd never cheat on my guy!

As usual, I am overthinking, I suspect.

So. The contractors came. They made my kitchen boo-ti-ful, but sitll not QUITE done. For one thing, they have to put in grout in the backsplash. They tell me they'll be back tomorrow but don't know what time. So it goes.

Took Dad out for a longish walk today. I don't think he was expecting to be put through his paces quite so much. I also bought him fruit salad at a little deli halfway through the walk so he'd eat something and not dehydrate. I caught him mumbling to Baby that he has a job opening at his house (presumably, formerly filled by the dog) and that she's welcome to apply. It's better than some of the other stuff I've caught him muttering at her...

As usual, my parents are showing up before I can become properly introspective.

Okay okay, I took the quiz...

What Stone Are You?

Well. They probably nailed that one. But I wanted a prettier rock.

Found Catya's livejournal, and liked this idea...

Cordelia is the innermost of Uranus' known satellites
Cordelia is above all known for her fine Rio Grande Valley weaving.
Cordelia is attacked by an invincible person
Cordelia is a lot like the girl next door
Cordelia is pregnant
Cordelia is characterized by fast food restaurants
Cordelia? Is that your name?

(Went to google and typed in "cordelia is")

There were at least two possible answers to all of the questions, so I gave the other answers and got:

I'm a Moonflower. I only bloom at night and I'm pollinated by moths. Kinky, huh? This flower means "I dream of love" and I do.
What bloom are you? by Polly_Snodgrass

I never said I was dreaming of love! But I like the flower. You know, this is why I don't take online quizzes I think.

Sorry, I wouldn't normally subject you all the results, but I kind of like the picture...

I'm a Daisy. I am the paragon of innocence. I don't know why the sky is blue or why the grass is green. What's handballing?
What bloom are you? by Polly_Snodgrass

I'm not that sheltered, am I?
