Snagged from [ profile] mdemvizi .

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 56.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next seven sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
6. Tag five other people to do the same.  Bueller?  Bueller?

The first lines of the last 20 fics I've posted. )

(Snagged from the intarwebs)

List your top seven ships.
1. Put all of them in order of your love for them.
2. Name their fandom.
3. Supply photos for said people.
4. Tag seven people 
Not tagging anyone; I don't like to irritate people unnecessarily.  Want to play?   Snag the meme. :)

lerdo: (Write)
Borrowed from the beautiful and eloquent [profile] sillysun22 and modified very slightly:

I will write a drabble (100 words exactly) for anyone who the first ten people to comments and asks for one. In return, you must post this in your journal--if you feel so inclined. You may request the character and/or pairing - though I can't promise I will write them in a relationship - for the following fandoms:
  • Bones (I know -- what a surprise! *g*  But feel free to request something besides Brennan and Booth.)
  • Original (No fandom;  just give me a prompt, and I'll see what I can scrounge up.)
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer (I'm a little chicken about writing in this fandom because I have it up on a pedestal.)

Gakked from [profile] linzeems:

Step 1: Put your iTunes or equivalent on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Bold/Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING.

Yikes.  Memories of being a Girl Scout many, many moons ago are coming back to me now.  *g*

I snagged the Buffyverse version of this meme from [profile] chrisleeoctaves.  Then the lovely and witty [personal profile] crankylex modified it. I liked her mods so much I asked if I could snag her version.  I modified it a wee bit further, and now we have this:

Copy this post into your journal (making sure to allow anonymous comments). People will then comment ANONYMOUSLY with the name of someone on their flist that they think others might enjoy reading... be it for their interesting meta posts, fabulous art-work, wonderful stories or just because they are an interesting person who they think others might benefit from knowing. (You can give the reasons WHY you think we should read this person's journal, or just post their name--whichever you feel more comfortable with.) It's probably best not to pick someone whose entire journal is locked because there wouldn't be any point if there weren't any public posts for people to read.

Other members of your flist then copy this into their journal giving you the chance to continue spreading the love by recommending people to them!


* Make sure your recs are done anonymously; this is to reduce any potential hurt feelings for other members of your flist.

* If you want to rec more than one person, that’s great, but please mention each person in a separate anonymous comment.

* If you want to link me to a specific post(s) that stands out for you, I'm cool with that, too.

Ok.  Any takers?

*snarfed from [personal profile] tidbit2008*

Quote a bit of my fic at me? Find that one fic of mine that you really like, and find a sentence or a paragraph that presses your prose-buttons in the right way, and comment here with it? Don't care how long or short.

(Why?  Honestly, because a little validation feels good sometimes.  That's it.)

If you're just wondering what fic I've posted lately, you'll find an update for What Would Happen If We Kissed? here.  Last week I posted a couple ficlets, but I was feeling lazy, so I didn't pimp them in any of the comms.  If you want to read them, just click here and scroll down a bit.

So you tagged me for this meme a while ago. 

Music Meme

[profile] melissa_pbfan tagged me for a music meme.
lerdo: (Lighthouse)
I snagged this from [personal profile] witchofthedogs.  Perhaps you think memes are the scourge of LiveJournal, but I promise that this is a good one.

Reply to this post, and I will list three things I love about you. Maybe more than three. Then repost to your own journal and spread the love.
lerdo: (Lighthouse)
I was tagged by [personal profile] love_kate_walsh & [profile] starlite_diner (Thank you, my lovelies!) , so it looks like I'm supposed to pick 10 people and give them the "You make my day" award.  I doubt the intent of this meme is to hurt anyone's feelings, but I freely admit I'm paranoid about causing anyone to feel excluded, so I'm not going to single anyone out.  Let me just that if we know each other here on LJ or elsewhere, you make my day.

Some of us have only exchanged comments a handful of times, while there are others of you with whom I communicate on a near-daily basis.  I treasure you all because while I don't believe in God, I believe in people.  It's my privilege to share in your joys, struggles, and stories--and to share mine with you.  Knowing each other through this medium isn't the same as sitting face to face over a hot cup of tea (or coffee), but it isn't any less, either. 

So, hugs to you all because you make my day.

[personal profile] siapom tagged me.  If you fall asleep reading this, blame her.

A. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
B. Tag seven people to do the same.
C. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it."

lerdo: (Pictures of You - lerdo)
Snagged from [personal profile] billysgirl5

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. I read your journals, and you update regularly and in detail. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you for your interest in my words.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...they listen in rapture to the love-music of she-turnips."

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who comment all the time. Then post this in your own journal and see what gems of knowledge appear. 

ETA:  Post as many tidbits about yourself as you'd like!  You don't have to limit yourself to one.
lerdo: (Hmm!Booth - lerdo)
Stolen from [profile] reeni928 

Describe me in one word, just one single word. Leave it in my comments section (if you're bored). Then post this original message on your journal and see how many strange and interesting things people say about you.

Yes, damn it.  I am procrastinating.
