I'm feeling a bit, well, like meme-ing.

Apparently I fooled an online character test without even intending to so. Or maybe these online tests aren't as accurate as they say they are? Oh noes, tell me it's not true!

SUPPOSEDLY if you've seen over 85 films, you have no life. Mark the ones you've seen. There are 239 films on this list. Copy this list, post to your LJ and paste this as a note. Then, put x's next to the films you've seen, add them up, and use your number as the header.

List )

Of course, with this kind of movies it's easy not to have seen more than 85. Or, maybe that's why you don't have a life if you've seen so many of them. It's not like I haven't seen more than 85 movies in my life, I have no idea how many I've seen, but I'm pretty sure that 30 or more featured Kevin Costner, so me, having a life?
(but then, you could probably tell from the fact that I'm taking this poll during breakfast that life and me have been strangers for a while)

Snuck out - From work.
Met a person who will change your life - I hope so.
Kept your resolution - Can't remember them.
Had a first something - First horse.
Drank Alcohol - Almost not at all.
Smoked weed/drugs - I learned from last year, so, no.

Liked someone who didn't like you - Everyone likes me. I don't like them. ;-)
Changed your view on things - Yes.
1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicise those you intend to read. (I made them blue, instead, because colors are more fun. Then I made the ones that I already own but haven't read yet pink, because I like pink.)
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Do something to the books you don't intend to read ever (well, never say never, I'll read anything if it's the only thing available. But the books you'll avoid reading if you can.) I made them purpur, because I don't like purpur. ;-)

Long list of books, now with colors! )

For those who don't know, I'm on GoodReads and I review books quite regularly (or rather, I try) , so if you want to read my book reviews (or let me read yours), come on over and friend me. My profile is here.
I don't usually post quiz results, certainly not without a cut. But this quiz, OMG it would not end! I swear there must have been fifty questions at least. I suffered through it for what felt like hours, kept going only by the knowledge that there would be pink! hearts! on the final results! At one point, I was beginning to think that the quiz had been cursed and only truly compatible people would find the secret.

But, I kept on clicking, and so, without further ado, and to let you take part in my suffering, I give you the results:


Could have told you that.

Empire Magazine's list of the 50 Greatest TV Shows.

Bold means I've seen the whole series, or as near as makes no difference. Italics mean I've seen some of it. WTF? means I have never even heard of it, so what's it doing there? ;-)

TV or not TV... )

Ah, lists like these are depressing. Or maybe not, because if there are so many shows I haven't even heard of, maybe I'm not watching too much TV after all. :-)
[P E O P L E]
1. Best friend? No.
2. Best boyfriend/girlfriend? No.
3. Lost any friends? The one whose friendship is becoming more and more of a joke every day, but I'm too loyal to give up on her.
4. Gained any friends? Colleagues, yes, friends? Not really.
5. Met a new good friend? No.

[P L A C E S]
1. Went out of the country? Yes.
2. Moved? Twice.

[Y O U]
1. Have you changed? Yes.
2. New look? No.
3. Any new addictions? Work?
4. Biggest conflict this year? Work?
5. Most depressed time this year? One weekend in summer when I broke down after not having slept more than three hours for two weeks, on EXACTLY the day that the new Harry Potter was published. It made me very very sad (but I slept too much to wallow in it. *g*)

[L O V E]
1. Did you fall in love? I already was in love with a horse.

Post the first sentence from the first entry of each month, then post the last sentence from the last entry of that month!

Considering how much I've been around this year, this is going to be one depressing meme.

1st: Hope you all had a wonderful New Year's Eve party and will have an even more wonderful new year!
(what a surprise)

30th: See you in April!
(it didn't take quote as long, but almost)

There were no entries in February. see last entry in January.

Only one entry in March.

18th: First sentence: I'm back for the weekend to celebrate my four years of lj anniversary and the last episode of Stargate ever.
Last sentence: Spoilery for last episode of Stargate, click link at your own risk.

7th: And thank you so much, anonymous lj-easterbunny, for the jelly beans that you hid in my user info.
8th: *is full of glee in anticipation*

25th: Hey, it's me!
26th: Thank you!

30th: AT HOME!
30th: More, now that it's over, if that's even possible.

1st: It's not easy...
28th: Maybe I'll give BSG another chance...

1st: I haven't been tagged, but I have nothing else to say, so there
25th: ETA: Okay, I'm going now, but it was wort(h) a try.

8th: I'm back from the most fabulous vacation ever.
30th: Wait, I have guests! Two more weeks and margueritem will be there, squeeee!

6th: Okay, it's official.
22nd: If you keep singing, I'll squish you and your stupid breaking levee! Oh, well, oh, well, oh, well..

4th: So the iPod is dead.
30th: *is still bored*

3rd: No time to write a real opinion on the sale (but hey, Russia! Now we
Lst: To come.

Some of these lead to flocked entries. I flock for personal details, so I can keep my sekrit identity. Be assured that flocked post are as boring as the rest of them and that fannish stuff is always public.
I changed the rules a little for better visualization.

- Italicize all of the following TV shows of which you've seen 3 or more episodes.
- Bold a show if you're positive you've seen every episode.
- Asterisk if you have at least one full season on tape or DVD
- Make the ones you have never seen or heard of smaller.
- If you want, add up to 3 additional shows (keep the list in alphabetical order).

Well, this proofs that I own too many DVDs. Not that I didn't know that... )
Because there's entirely too much discussion going on, here's the WIP meme thing.
When you see this, post a little weensy excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

(I have folders. They are called "Finished Fics", "Fics that will never be written. I think.", "Variations of the one fic that will definitely never be written." "Ideas that will never turn into fic. I think". and "WRITE THIS!".

NCIS and *hides* Stargate. *hides* )
I haven't been tagged, but I have nothing else to say, so there.

Four jobs I've had or currently have in my life:
1. Clothes Folderer (I know that this is not a word) at H&M
2. Horseriding instructor
3. Assistent in advertising agency
4. Lawyer

Four countries I have been to:
1. Canada
2. USA
3. France
4. Spain
(Europe, people. You want me to choose just four?)

Four places I'd rather be right now:
1. Nice, France
2. At home
3. At my grandma's
4. On a horse

Four foods I like to eat:
1. Pasta
2. Cheese
3. Tomatoes
4. Bailey's
(that would be my whole diet, if I could survive on it)

Your Score: Squib

You scored 36% Slytherin, 20% Ravenclaw, 16% Gryffindor, and 32% Hufflepuff!

Are you sure that you belong at Hogwarts? You show no defined personal characteristics and therefore no house preference. Perhaps you should seriously consider a lucrative career in dentistry or tax preparation -- or allow the Sorting Hat to redetermine your place at a later date.

Link: The Sorting Hat Test written by leeannslytherin on OkCupid Free Online Dating, home of the The Dating Persona Test

Apparently, I'm not meant to be in Hogwarts at all. On the other hand, this is the result I got when I skippedthe question of which House I want to be in. If I choose that I want to get into Slytherin, I score significantly higher (56%) on Slytherin. If I choose Gryffindor, still a squib.
Yep, I can just see myself sitting there with that stupid hat on my first day.

Hat: "Either you choose Slytherin or you'll go home."
Me: "But I don't want to live in the dungeons!"
The fictional TV character/fictional film character/celebrity/ I would most like to...

20 Questions meme that [livejournal.com profile] malnpudl posted a long time ago and that I've been planning to steal ever since. But as you know, a good heist takes some preparation. ;-)

Here we go: )

That was fun. :-) I'm just kidding about the Jensen Ackles thing, you know that, don't you? I mean, it's not like I spend all day phantasizing about Jensen Ackles. It could just as well be Michael Weatherly.
I haven't come home before 10 p.m. once this week. No, wait, I haven't left the office before 10 p.m. once this week.
No wonder this journal is lacking any fannsih content recently, apart from the random OMG Jensen! Stop keeping me awake with your prettiness! entries!

So, here's your chance to get me back on the fannish track. If you want me to talk about fannish things, which, well, I refuse to believe that you are all here because of my really exciting real life...

Give me a prompt, a picture, ask me a question or tell me a story, or whatever else you think will inspire me, and I will do my best to post something fannish about it.

1,2,3 go!
Will I watch another episode of "The Unit"? Or should I read more sad Stargate fics? Or should I steal a meme from [livejournal.com profile] trinityofone and post it?
Meme it is:

Name a fandom and I will tell you what I think I know about it, derived only from my LJ experience.
(this works, of course, best with fandoms I don't really know, but I will try my best to give you an lj version of the fandom I know.)
Create a playlist with all your music, set it on shuffle and then let it predict your year...

My 2007 will be... )

My Top Ten Shows of 2006

This was a hard decision, because I think that other seasons, particularly season 2 of NCIS was a lot better than the current season. But I still enjoy the hell of the show, and I love them for never neglecting the characters, always revealing something more, funny, absurd, personal,about them. And compared with The Unit, which made second place, I still love NCIS more. It's not a rational decision, it comes from the heart.

2. The Unit
I love this show so much. The shows keeps getting better and better, even though they continue to hint at things and then not tell us, which drives me insane. It helped, of course, that 2006 was even more The Bob! show than before, but even apart from that, I loved each and every episode. Well, except for the season 2 opener. I'm still not over the shock.

3. Stargate
Okay, so it's not the show we knew and loved all these years anymore. But it's still a good show, and there are still aliens and Stargates and spaceships, combined with action, humour and our favourite characters: Daniel, Sam, Teal'c and surprisingly also Vala and Cameron, who have really grown on me. Vala, because she is cute, Cameron, because of his huge crush on the whole team and the wa he worships them with practically everything he does. Of course, you gotta wonder if they ever taught him what it means to be in command, but I like it when he watches SG-1 play with alien toys, not even trying to be in charge. And let's not forget that there is still Jack to love, who is sitting in Washington pretending that being without Daniel doesn't break his heart every day. It's so dramatic.
*loves SG-1*

4. Numb3rs
Had I made this list after two episodes into the new season, Numb3rs would have made the first place. I still can't believe how good the two-part season opener was. I love this show very much and they did some really great things with some of my favourite characters this year, but it continues to lose points with its "One outstanding, one boring episode" policy. Just throw out the boring plots this year, please?

5. Smith
This was such a great show! It would have made #1, if it hadn't been cancelled so brutally after 3 episodes. What a great , great show. My heart's broken. BROKEN!

6. Veronica Mars
Judging purely from how much I'm looking forward to shows every week, Veronica Mars is at least #6. I wasn't happy with everything that happened this year, but it wasn't unhappiness from a TV POV, it was a personal unhappiness: some things I wasn't so interested in, some I found stupid. And that, given that the show is now set in college, is quite clever, really, because a college show could not be realistic if I were interested in everything that happened in it. I'm just too old for that. But overall, Veronica Mars continues to grow up with its characters, who are still some of the most human and real characters on TV. And the scene with Veronica and the phone in the cafeteria (I'm not going into details to avoid spoilers) is one of my favourite TV moments ever.

7. Doctor Who
I never expected to love the "new" Doctor so much, but I did. I loved the show, I loved the Doctor, I LOVED Rose, and then they made me cry, so now I don't think I'm ever going to love them again as much as I did this season, but I will also never forget how much I loved them.

8. Bones
Surprise! Yes, I enjoyed Bones quite a lot last year. It has gotten much better since the first season and all the characters are just..loveable. Even the Bones equivalent of Madame Director.

9. Eureka
Well, that was fun. ;-) No, really, this is the only thing I can say: fun. It's not a great, innovative show, but it is well-made fun with some nice ideas and sympathic characters. I can't remember one episode that disappointed me.

10. Torchwood
I already said once that I love Torchwood because it is clumsy, not despite of it. And yes, maybe I enjoyed parts of Torchwood more than Bones or Eureka, but parts of it were also horrible, that's what it is only #10. Bones and Eureka were more consistent, even though they didn't have the highlights Torchwood has. It's a close race. I think it was episode 11 of Torchwood that gave the decision. Still, love the show and its clumsiness.

Shows that almost made it into the Top Ten )

Other shows that I watched, that I didn't make it anywhere near the Top Ten )

Most Disappointing Shows of 2006 )

I think that's it. Quite a lot of shows, I know, but it's not like there was a new episode of each show every week, and besides, I was without work for half of the year. What's your excuse? ;-)

Hope you all had a wonderful New Year's Eve party and will have an even more wonderful new year!

So, it's 2007: please welcome [livejournal.com profile] enigel to the European Union!
Everyone: Welcome Enigel!

I was going to do memes, you know, the whole "This was 2006 for me" thing that you all love so much. But I have the old from hell, so I opted for drinking tons of herbal tea and watching music vids instead. But before I return to that, let me quickly post my

New Year's Resolutions )

Seriously, though, I don't really do New Year's resolutions. But I do plans, and I have plans for this year.
1) find appartment (this is unavoidable, so it will be done. Soon. I hope)
2) Don't let work drive me crazy (and isn't it great how I already worry about this, when I haven't even started working yet?)
3) Don't get fat. Which means that I will have to take up yoga again. I hope I can find a nice place in F.
4) Travel! This should be easy to do, because I will earn money that I can spend. I'm planning to go horseriding somewhere in Europe, maybe a trail or so. Anyone want to come along?(seriously, wouldn't it be fun?)
5) Convince S. that she wants to be my girlfriend. Okay, this won't work, but I can dream.
6) Start new life in F.
7) Maybe give up smoking. I'm not sure if I want to, yet, since it is so easy for me not to smoke for a few days that I kind of don't want to miss it when I go out. Then again, why smoke at all if it is so easy to give up? Will have to think about this and have resolved not to smoke in February to see how it goes.
8) Wait and see what happens.

And while we are at it, let's take a look at last year's plans and how they worked out, shall we? )

*runs away to watch more music vids*
