Deathly Hallows predictions meme, from [ profile] buttfacemakani

5 things you want to happen that probably will happen
  1. RAB was Regulus Black

  2. Snape was working against Voldemort the whole time

  3. Draco is redeemed

  4. we get to see Lucius again

  5. re. Dumbledore's reason for trusting Snape: we find out that there's more to it than Harry thought (Unbreakable Vow!)

5 things you want to happen that probably won't happen
  1. Snape survives

  2. more flashbacks of young Snape

  3. Sirius just remains dead, damnit

  4. in the movie, Hermione actually gets credit for saving Harry's ass almost as often as Snape does

  5. Hagrid gets to do something awesome

5 things you want to happen that definitely won't happen
  1. I'm going to steal Makani's idea and say PIRATES!

  2. Lupin and Tonks figure out that they're both gay, but they remain friends

  3. Snape actually gets to have a relationship

  4. ...with a man

  5. ...named Lupin

Even though it's Saturday.

1. Who is your favorite HP couple? (And I mean ACTUAL couple, not ship!) I assume that by "actual" they mean "canon". Does Snape/Lucius count as canon?

2. Which would you rather see: a continuation of Harry's life post-Hogwarts, or a prequel about the original Order of the Phoenix? PREQUEL! Unless Snape survives, then seeing what he does later would be nice. I'll pick whichever one has more Snape. Harry who?

3. Who is the bigger jerk: Fudge or Scrimgeour? I don't know if we've seen enough of Scrimegeour to hate him as much as he deserves. I have a feeling he'll turn out to be the greater of two evils (between him and Fudge). They both deny reality (just like Neo-cons!) but at least Fudge was so ineffectual he was easy to get rid of.

4. What form would your Patronus take? Something aquatic, which would be totally useless in most situations. Maybe a sea otter. I could smash small objects on my tummy with a rock!

5. Which of the Weasley twins' inventions would you most like to try? I don't know if I remember them all but the head-disappearing hats are cool. Definitely not the Skiving Snackboxes.

I'm going to omit the ones that include personal info. That's most of them, actually.

3. YOUR RAP NAME (first initial of first name and first three or four letters of your last name):
G-Rhe. Pronounced "G-Ray," it sounds cool. Pronounced like it's actually pronounced in my name, "G-Reh," sounds dumb.

4. YOUR GAMER TAG (a favourite colour, and a favourite animal)
Purple Monkey (Dishwasher).

9. SUPERHERO NAME: ("The", your favourite colour and the automobile your dad drives)
The Blue Rav4 EV. It's electric! He even got the charger modded so he could take it with him and plug it into a regular outlet. And he has solar panels in the back yard (he mostly charges the car at home, the portable charger is for if he's going an unusually long way).

10. YOUR ACTION HERO NAME (first name of the main character in the last film you watched, last food you ate)
Joe Black Bean Soup and Cornbread. It would've been Joe Sushi if I'd done this before dinner. I also had this awesome eggplant dish. It was just half an eggplant, cooked in some delicious miso sauce. The movie was Idiocracy. I liked it. Especially how with a lot of the stuff in the future, I thought "yeah, it's pretty much like that now."

At least it wasn't Joe Dirt.

Someone sent me the following e-mail:
Subject: this test sucks

Me and my flatmate have taken your test about harry potter to find out that the test doesn`t have anything to do with it!!!!!! What`s wrong with you. Please if you can give me back the time i wasted!!!!!!!!

So I replied:
Not sure what you're talking about: it does have to do with Harry Potter in that it tells you which character has the same Myers-Briggs type as you.

Please find enclosed a full time-refund. Be careful you don't spend it all on hitting the ! key.

[ profile] stanharding did this and I thought it was cool so I'm going to copy him.

If my life were a series of books a la Harry Potter:
  • Gillian Rhett and the Heiroglyphic Stamps - Elementary school. I was totally into ancient Egypt and I had these stamps...

  • Gillian Rhett and the Total Lack of Motivation - Junior high. Deepest pit in hell.

  • Gillian Rhett and the Blue Hair Dye - In high school, I dyed my hair blue. It's on my driver's license photo.

  • Gillian Rhett and the Grilled Cheese Sandwich - uni year 1. Mmm, dining commons food.

  • Gillian Rhett and the Roommates from Hades - year 2

  • Gillian Rhett and the Double Major - year 3 - declared my anthro major

  • Gillian Rhett and the Five Subject Notebook - year 4 - upper division p-chem!

Having been quasi-tagged by [ profile] wormlover (I don't think you're allowed to tag everyone who reads it...), here's a meme wherein I post five quirky habits I have.

1. My cat and I have a rigid morning routine. Get up, pet the cat for a bit (because she waits outside my bedroom door in the morning), pee, flush the toilet (cat must watch the toilet flush and gets upset if I try to shut the lid) wash hands, brush teeth, explain to cat that I have to take a shower now, get cat out of shower, have a shower (in which I must, in this exact order, wash hair, wash body, wash face), blowdry hair, get dressed.

2. Um... I'm already getting stuck. Does being too busy to eat count? I think it counts. How about "hardly eat anything all day then have a humongous dinner to make up for it?" I don't know if these are quirky enough or if everybody does these.

3. I am hyper-organized at work. I love making folders in my computer and organizing everything. Today I made some new folders for the conference I'm going to and for stuff I was cleaning out of my e-mail attachments folder. It was awesome.

4. I don't do my laundry often enough. I've got a big pile of it right now. And I hardly ever fold pajamas or underwear. I just leave it in the clean laundry basket and dig it out as I need it.

5. One more! I drink water out of a giant bottle. I get these 1 gallon bottles of water from Trader Joe's and I refill them with filtered water from home and I bring them to work.

Name 5 of life's simple pleasures that you like most, then pick 5 people to do the same. Try to be original and creative and not to use things that someone else has already used.

1. Taco Bell! I know most people hate it but it's comfort food for me.
2. Watering the plants. Last week as I was watering, I saw a garter snake! Just being around plants and dirt is good.
3. Squirrels. They're funny.
4. On a Friday after work, getting a pizza and ice cream and watching videos and just very deliberately spending the evening relaxing.
5. Yarn! I'm glad I'm getting back into knitting. Also: beads!

the quiz

Your view on yourself:
Other people find you very interesting, but you are really hiding your true self. Your friends love you because you are a good listener. They'll probably still love you if you learn to be yourself with them.

Because in real life, you are not interesting at all. You are very, very boring.

Hardly surprising.

From [ profile] hazlemotes

1. Go into your LJ's archives.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.

Despite getting extra points for being a female geek, to my dismay, I'm only "36.88363% - Major Geek"

Man, I knew my entries from way back then weren't as cool as they are now.

Those bastards at Safeway put onions on my sandwich. The sign didn't include onions in the list of ingredients, so I didn't ask for no onions. And they put a ton of pepperoncini - is that how it's spelled? Those little yellowy spicy pepper slices. Anyway, they put on a few handfulls of that. Are they trying to kill me? And they always try to put way too much cheese and I have to say "half that much cheese, please." See? I'm polite to them and everything. And half the time, they go "no meat? are you sure?" and then they grab another three pounds of cheese to stick on, because goodness knows I have to get my daily cholesterol somehow.

I'm actually working on my site today. Expect an update by this evening. Yay!

Pirate Monkeys Inc. is now back online and with a new update. Featuring...


Here's my result, to get the ball rolling:
Pirate Monkey's Harry Potter Personality Quiz
Harry Potter Personality Quiz
by Pirate Monkeys Inc.

No, I didn't just rig it so I'd get Snape. My analysis of the character has forced me to conclude that Snape is an INTJ.

...also we INTJs kick ass, and Snape kicks ass, therefore the conclusion is obvious.

And now that all the worry is over, I'm going to inflict some meme crap on you.

first, that hearts quiz that's been going around )

and then there's another thing but first:
Holy crap, I have to see this movie Kingdom of Heaven. Look how hot the cast is! Liam Neeson, Jeremy Irons, David Thewlis, overrated-but-nonetheless-hot Orlando Bloom. And... and... Alexander Siddig! For those of you who aren't Trekkie nerds, he was Dr. Bashir on DS9! I had such a thing for him! I read Bashir/Dax fanfics! I hadn't really discovered slash at that point, or else it would've been Bashir/Garak. Or Gul Dukat. Because Cardassians are hawt. Anyway. You know where I'll be, uh, whenver that movie comes out.

Now here's the meme.
thing about which movies you've seen )

Gimli's heart boxers
You are Gimli's white shorts with red heart pattern
boxers. It's traditional, it's cliche, but it
gets the job done!

What Lord of the Rings characters' underwear are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

I think that's not a good sign.

One more PCR to set up and then I'm outa here.
It's like, I'm all busy but there's not actually a lot for me to do. Like I'm supposed to look busy all the time. But it's really a slow week. Since everyone and their mom has to use the 310 right now.
