(Fun fact! For the first eighteen years of my life we didn't talk to my paternal grandparents, so I was explaining this to a friend once, how I only really "have" one grandma, and then I mentioned that my maternal grandmother has a twin sister, and the friend went "But if she's a twin then you have two!" Hahaha OH EMILY, TOO BAD YOU SUCK. /bitterness)
Tomorrow we're driving south of the 49th parallel to go shopping. It will be fun, though I kind of wish I was going with my friends and not... my dad and three of my mom. LIRL But I don't even care, I am so desperaet to get out of this country, even if it is for like five hours and we go to upstate New York. I have not gone ANYWHERE this summer. I have wanderlust like nobody's business. Oh, worldly travellers of my flist, I stare at you in envy! Envyyy!
Before this degenerates into a whine about money, I am going to do some memes. BECAUSE YOU ALL CARE SO MUCH, RIGHT?
Would you do meth if it were legalized?
Um, no. Man I barely even drink.
Are you for or against abortion?
In most scenarios I think it's probably not the best option to choose, but I'm all for women having that option.
Would our country (United States) fall with a woman president?
Okay for one the US is not my country and we've had a female Prime Minister, but no, I do not think a woman president would be ZOMG the death of liberty or, um, whatever. I don't know enough of American politics to make a fair comment on Hillary, but I certainly don't think a female president would be a bad thing.
Do you believe in the death penalty?
Not really. It doesn't do what it's supposed to -- deter -- so it just seems sort of ...spiteful in the worst possible way.
Do you wish marijuana would be legalized already?
No. But I'm apparently the only teenager in the world who doesn't smoke, so y'know, whatever.
Do you believe in God?
No. I am a born skeptic, so this idea really doesn't click with me, but more power to you if you want to be religious. lulz when I was little I used to look at the clouds and wonder why the fuck I couldn't see angels hanging out up there. Apparently I imagined heaven was a lot like those Philedelphia Cream Cheese commericals.
Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?
Yep! Rock on, Canada. Rock on. SPEAKING OF HOW MUCH CANADA ROCKS, the WBC, the crazies who wanted to protest at Heath Ledger's funeral, the ones of "GOD HATES FAGS" fame? They wanted to come up here to picket at the funeral of the man who was killed on the Greyhound bus in Winnipeg, and the border was told not to let them through. Hahahaha suck it, WBC.
A twelve year old girl has a baby...should she keep it?
No, I'd rather it be put up for adoption. (
Should the alcohol age be lowered to 18?
Well it's 19 in Ontario and you can't smoke until you're 19 here either, so I think that's logical enough. However, this survey is Very American, so I will say this: 21 is just a fucking stupid drinking age, I'm sorry. WHO ARE YOU TRYING TO FOOL, AMERICA?
Assisted suicide is illegal...do you agree with this ruling?
Do you believe in spanking your children?
No. I was never spanked and so I guess the entire concept just seems off to me. It's not even that I think it's "abuse" or whatever -- I just think it's kind of dumb.
Would you burn an American flag for a million dollars?
WOULD I EVER!! And to be honest I would even if it was a Canadian flag. ilu, Canada, but a million dollars? I WILL BUY SO MANY FLAGS TO MAKE UP FOR IT. Plus I know it's very symbolic and in general I don't support flag abuse, but it is just some fabric.
A mother is declared innocent after murdering her 5 children in a temporary insanity case. Do you agree?
If she has a serious mental condition she should be hospitalized, not jailed. <-- what liz said. <-- this. And in any case the "temporary insanity" thing is one I have mixed opinions on.
Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answers?
No. I don't really think there's anything inflammatory in here anyway, so whatev.
Hurrah, now you know all about my various social and political opinions! Kind of. Except harmonyjam_07 tagged me for this shipping meme, and so any illusion of me as an intellectual that the previous meme may hae created will now be shattered.
1. List your top seven character ships
2. Put all of them in order of your love for them; 7 to 1, 1 being your main fixation.
3. Name the movie/show that they're in.
4. Supply photos for said people.
There is no 5 because I'm not tagging people.
7 - Barney/Robin - (How I Met Your Mother)
So ... Barney is the only reaosn I kept watching this show beyond the first episode or two, and he's basically awesome. Anyhow, Barney and Robin are clearly kind of awesome, because she suits up for him and they can play laser tag and just generally be epic. I am not entirely sure if I would want this to go beyond the sort of subtle (well, until the s3 finale) "they'd be awesome but neither of them wants the commitment" thing they've got going on right now, because Barney is awesome because he's such a douche, but... y'know, whatever, I needed a 7th ship, okay?
6 - Jordan/Dr Cox - (Scrubs)
It would be a lie to pretend I ship these two in the sense that most people mean "ship", but truthfully with a few exceptions I'm not really much of a shipper. Anyway, I love Scrubs and it needed representation, and I don't give a crap about JD/Elliot or Turk/Carla, but Jordan/Dr Cox is just this amazing combination of snark and wit and I love them both. They look deceptively friendly in the picture above but it's the only one I could find. Rest assured that they can and will destroy you, which is what I love about them. Behold:
5 - Ned/Chuck - (Pushing Daisies)
These two are just cute and they warm even my cold, cynical heart. For those who don't watch the show, the general gist is that they can't touch because it'll kill her (and I am too lazy to explain why), but they are obviously stupidly enamored with each other. Hence the kissing porcelain owls pictured above. Anyway, these two make abstinence way cuter than Edward and Bella could ever dream of.
4 - Dwight/Angela - (The Office)
I don't see why I need to explain this one. If you don't like Dwight/Angela you obviously suck, because they are epic and worthy only of each other. Andy and his ABBA can gtfo.
I couldn't find an appropriate clip-only for the two of them, but this hits basically every Dwight/Angela clip in season 4, plus it plays Shot Through the Heart, lirl.
3 - Jim/Pam - (The Office)
These two are awesome and they win the award for being the first television couple I gave a shit about. Hurrah! The slightly strange thing is as much as I like the idea of them being happy and whatever, I think the show in general was a lot more interesting during the seasons when they weren't together. Uh, oops. But still, they are adorable.
2 - Lily/James - (Harry Potter)
That's right, I just used the fanart everyone in the world has seen by buttfacemakani, mostly because i was too lazy to go find something else and figure out crediting and blah blah. Anyway, these two were my primary interest for ages and the only reason they aren't in top spot is because I've been neglecting them for the past, I don't know, year or so, but I still have quite a soft spot for them. Their live-fast-die-young messiah baby plotline is just epic, and I love that there's so much freedom because there's so much we don't know. It's much more fun to work with, in my opinion, as far as fanfic and all that goes. I haven't written them in ages but their characters -- or, I guess, my versions of their characters -- are so firmly embedded in my brain, as is their relationship, that writing them is stupidly easy to me. It makes me sad that after DH so many people decided this ship sucked, because... whatever, it's awesome. *waves UR banner proudly*
Unfortunately there is no video of them because those don't exist.
1 - Doctor/Rose - (Doctor Who)
Okay so if this surprised you, you're probably kind of an idiot, given that these two are plastered all over my lj/profile/icons/everywhere, ever and I keep posting fic about them. I don't know, I am a dirty new!Who fan who fawns over David Tennant and ships Doctor/Rose hard and has scarcely seen any of the original series and blah blah, I am not ashamed. They have the worst luck and they fluctuate between giggly twelve-year-old best friends to mega!angst all the time and apparently that's everything I like in a ship. I love that they got a bittersweet ending -- even though I am pretty convinced Rose and human!Ten will be having a blast in no time -- because it's such a bittersweet ship and judging from my top two on here I like tragic ends, or something. Anyway, I'm not sure what it is with these two -- be it Nine or Ten, I don't care -- but they reduce me to a girly mess the way most ships/chick flicks/movies don't. And now an OBSCENELY LONG VIDEO SPAM!
Okay so the ship meme took FOREVER, so I'm done here. Enjoy the videos/graphics/whatev.
