I've had several very annoying days at work so I'm in the mood to do something mindless for a few minutes, therefore you all are getting spammed with a ... A MEME!!! ::cue ominous music:: Gakked from [livejournal.com profile] scriggle.

Make a list of 5 things you can see without getting up.
1. A platform for hanging stage lights
2. Bookshelves full of notebooks
3.Filing cabinets
4. The other wing of my building
5. Cthulhu. (No, seriously! He's on top of the shelf keeping watch over the financial report notebooks!)

Picture meme, taken from everyone

* Take a picture of yourself right now.
* Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair...just take a picture.
* Post that picture with NO editing.
* Post these instructions with your picture.

Okay, I cheated a bit, I had someone else take the picture because when I take it myself it ends up looking like I took it through a fisheye lens. And I resized the photo smaller so it's not so obnoxious. But I didn't zap any zits or wrinkles or anything. :D It's behind the cut. )

Your result for The Fashion Style Test...

Catwalk God(ess)


[Flamboyant Original Deliberate Sexy]

You know fashion inside out but you're far from being its slave. To you fashion is what you decide to wear. You've got great, if unconventional, taste and plenty of courage to put your ideas into practice, which inspires admiration; but few have guts to copycat you. I suppose it doesn't worry you because to you originality counts. You are self-confident, perhaps even arrogant, and consider a day wasted when no one gives you an interested or shocked look. Great job.

The opposite style from yours is Librarian [Tasteful Conventional Random Prissy].

Your Score: Linear B


You scored




You are Linear B. Even those who can follow you think you're all Greek to them. Which, after all, is true - Linear B being the first known text for written Greek. To most people, you're incomprehensible. But what do you care? You're tough, hard, long-enduring and have greater nobility than most. Naturally, you don't admit to borrowing extensively from your brother Linear A.

I'm just a posting fool lately, but I had to share this. The northwest corner of our yard is overrun by concord grape vines-- they've climbed up and around every tree and bush within reach, and this year they are bearing like crazy. Usually I leave them for the critters (of which we have many) but there were so many this year that I went out the other day and picked a couple of pounds of them for myself, and there was still a lot on the vines. Then I realized I had no idea what to do with them.

I didn't want to make jelly since the one time I tried that before I failed miserably (I got grape syrup, pretty much), so I went online and looked for non-jelly concord grape recipes. Well, there are about a million recipes for grape pie, which, um, sounded kind of nasty to me. But scattered in amongst the pie recipes I found one for a chutney and one for a conserve. The chutney sounded good but called for an ingredient I didn't have on hand and I didn't feel like going out for. The conserve, on the other hand, I had all the ingredients for except Ruby Port, but I had a bottle of Dubonnet which is kinda-sorta similar so I went with that recipe, but added a couple of ingredients from the chutney recipe (more spices) just because they sounded good.

It was kind of a pain slipping the skins of 2 pounds of grapes but OMG, so worth it! The fragrance of the conserve as it cooked was like perfume, and it tastes amazing, too. Tonight I need to make some fresh bread to eat it on, though the original recipe was supposed to accompany duck. Anyway, just in case some of you have concord grapes you need to do something with, here's the recipe: )

Also, I took that Flesch-Kincaid thing that I saw over at [livejournal.com profile] aukestrel's and now I feel like I ought to be using more and bigger words or something. ;D

Those, at least, were solid enough to hold his weight, unlike the cloth stretched between them. He was committing the same sin he'd accused Jack of, speculating on small and circumstantial evidence, looking for a monster to explain away what was most likely mere human veniality.

I've had a the last few days off from work and have pretty much ignored LJ. (I needed to use up some vacation time or lose it.) I spent a lot of it cleaning house, which badly needed it and I feel pretty happy with the results. Still a lot to be done, but a good start made. [livejournal.com profile] theamusedone came to visit on Saturday, and we had a really nice time. Or I did. I hope he did. :D Somehow it turned into Nostalgia TV Time. Since he'd never seen a Man from UNCLE episode I showed him "The Strigas Affair," and he was vastly amused by the pre-Star Trek presence of both William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. not to mention Werner Klemperer (Col. Klink!). After that, we went to dinner at the Brasserie 1010, wherein the star of the show was the amazing dessert shared by [livejournal.com profile] theamusedone and my kidunit (a flourless chocolate cake accompanied by bourbon-vanilla ice cream topped with Frangelico wafers that were kind of like hazelnut brittle).

After we got home, I inflicted an episode of U.F.O. (link goes to pix from it) on him, and then he mentioned he had never seen any Sapphire & Steel so I got out my boxed-set and showed him the first few chapters of "The Railway Station." Since we didn't have time to watch the entire thing, I ended up sending the set with him (with a warning about the stupid duct-tape and fake-fur 'creature' in "The Creature's Revenge.") Next morning we met [livejournal.com profile] ruthless1 for breakfast at the Original House of Pancakes (not to be confused with IHOP) where [livejournal.com profile] theamusedone and I both had a Dutch Baby pancake (which is amazing and yummy), the kidunit had their strawberry Belgian waffle which had about half a pound of strawberries on it, and poor [livejournal.com profile] ruthless, who had a bad cold, fed her cold with a nice traditional eggs & pancakes breakfast. After breakfast [livejournal.com profile] theamusedone left with [livejournal.com profile] ruthless to head to Denver and the Tragicially Hip concert.

Yesterday I mainlined my Space: Above & Beyond DVDs. God, that show holds up well. It was such a great show and Fox was SO stupid the say they treated it. I am feeling semi-inspired to write a fixit. Which is amazing since I've had writers block going for months now. Maybe I should try and run with this to see if it jumpstarts my Muse.

And here's a bit pf memeage gakked from [livejournal.com profile] juliabk

drawing personality

What does your drawing say about YOU?

The results of your analysis say:

You are driven and ambitious and tend to make radical moves to reach your goals.
You are a direct and forthright person. You like to get to the core of the issue right away, with few signs of hesitation.
You like following the rules and being objective. You are precise and meticulous, and like to evaluate decisions before making them.
You feel morose and are prone to lethargy.

I'm not driven or ambitious at all. The rest though... yeah, sounds like me.

My other superpowers are:

The ability to ensure that when I watch a TV show that I don't watch regularly, no matter how many years that show has been running, the episode will be a rerun. And it will be the same episode that I saw the last two or three times I tried to watch that TV show! (I share this one with [livejournal.com profile] highnez)

Momness. Yes, I am actually a mom, but my friends all called me that long before I had a child. And I am also mom to an entire department. Sometimes it feels like I am mom to the entire university. In addition, I am mom to all my kidunit's friends (I diagnose so many minor ailments I should get an MD...)

The power to cause the phone to ring simply by getting up from my desk and going into another part of the office.

The power to always choose the slowest checkout line in any store.

We're closing the office early today, and I am trying to kill time in the last fifteen minutes, so... gakked from [livejournal.com profile] aukestrel and [livejournal.com profile] brynwulf:

Things you may not know about me )

Happy Turkey Day to all my fellow Ammurikens. My brother is smoking a turkey (man, that conjures up a weird image!) and I'm making dressing, and pumpkin and bourbon-pecan pies. Mom's got the traditional green bean casserole, the housemate is making mashers, and kidunit wants to bake something in order to try out the new piping set we got at BB&B the other day. Pumpkin bread with a cream-cheese frosting might be nice. Since the turkey leftovers will be going home with the brother, I bought a small one to cook for us on Friday.

Personally, I'm thankful for many things, including decent health, a decent job, and a roof over my head, but at this very moment, I am most thankful for 4 days off in a row. :-D
Tags:
My excitement for the day, since I already voted {and if you are eligible to and haven't done so yet, GO DO IT!) is that the housemate is treating me to a belated birthday-dinner tonight at Jazzy's Crab Shack which has all-you-can-eat crab on Tuesday nights. I used to get snow crab until I tried the Dungeness, which I now realize is far superior. :)

And now, since I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] cedara I am listing six random facts about myself

1) I have acrophobia and claustrophobia, which makes it really hard to go see an Avs game at the Pepsi Center. :) (The acrophobia I have always had but I developed the claustrophobia-- and a nice case of PTSD-- a couple of years ago after getting 2 un-drugged MRIs.)

2) I only have one lung. The left one was removed when I was 21 because it was dead and gangrenous (a benign tumor had blocked the left main-stem bronchus and killed the lung.)

3) My friends all called me "Mom" even before I really was one.

4) I have been to England twice.

5) I have never lived by myself. I have either lived with family, an SO, or a house-mate my entire life. Someday I would like to try it.

6) I once trained a betta (Fin MacCool) to jump out of the water and take his food off a toothpick. Sadly he was killed when the bookshelf his tank was on randomly fell over and his tank broke. :-(

Belated Happy New Year to my fellow pagans. :)

I decided I wasn't going to let another Halloween go by without dressing up, so I borrowed an idea that [livejournal.com profile] the_star_fish did last year and went as the Fairy Gothmother. I did traditionally goth makeup-- white face, black lipstick, very dark gray eyeshadow and purple hair-mascara in my hair. The outfit consisted of a semi-sheer black ruffled top (I had a purple satin corset I wanted to wear, but it was inappropriate for work), a black laced-back dominatrix-style skirt with long jagged lace points at the bottom, a black velvet military-style Edwardian jacket, a lace and jet-beaded choker, purple and black striped tights, black mid-calf granny boots, purple netting fingerless mitts, and a purple and black tiara. And a wand that's all purple and black glitter. People seemed to really like the outfit. :-D (Kidunit took some pics for me but I have to wait for her to get a chance to upload them for me.)

Not many of our students dressed up-- I saw one girl in pink sweats and pink fairy wings, a guy in a bear costume who looked about ready to expire from the heat, and one of our grad students came as King Arthur from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (great costume!) and one of my minions came as a glam witch, so we looked good together. ;D

I was very disappointed last night to get no trick-or-treaters at all. We don't usually get many, but this is the first time we haven't gotten any at all. :-( I am blaming the cold-front that rolled in late in the afternoon and dropped the temps below freezing because I don't want to believe trick-or-treating is dead.

Oh, I did get one really nice treat yesterday! My mom bought us a new clothes dryer. I think she was just tired of us coming over and borrowing hers every time ours decided to quit working. Amazingly, her dryer is forty-three years old! and still running like trooper. My old one was only about 20. Planned obsolescence is clearly at work. The new one has a cool stationary rack that you can put inside to dry shoes and things like that on. Nice. It also has an intermittant tumble setting for when you can't get to your laundry right away.

It's Monday? How did that happen already? Weekends are much too short. It seems like it has just started and bam! its already over. Saturday I drove kidunit, who wasn't feeling quite the thing, down to a con in South Denver which ate up the morning, then we had to rush back through Homecoming Football Traffic to meet [livejournal.com profile] ladyra (who has recently moved to the area) for lunch. We had a great time and will have to do that again sometime soon! Only we need to make sure there's not a football game scheduled to screw up traffic. Then I went home and took a two-margarita-inspired nap. :-) Yes, I am a cheap drunk. I spent the rest of the weekend reading the stack of Sue Henry mysteries I borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] bluster, in between helping kidunit work on costuming, and doing my laundry and some household stuff. It seems like I didn't do anything. I barely got online at all. So that was my thrilling weekend.

The weather this morning is chilly and rainy, very fall-like. Our yard is full of bright yellow leaves from our trees, and the raccoons are making a lot of noise as they raid our rapidly-withering apples, causing the cats to have conniptions. Despite the evening chill, our back-door neighbors are still having Really Loud Parties TM (as in, we can plainly hear them inside our house, even with all our windows and doors closed.) in their back yard until all hours on a regular basis. I'm sure I am developing a reputation as the neighborhood curmudgeon by screaming "SHUT UP!" at them when they're still out there partying at the top of their lungs at 1am. Am I wrong in thinking that it is courteous to one's neighbors to move one's party indoors, or at least try not to scream, after midnight?
