Boredom owns.

(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

× I miss somebody right now. I don't watch much TV these days.  (mostly it's shit, anyway.) I own lots of books.  (and feel bad because i haven't read them all.)
× I wear glasses or contact lenses. × I love to play video games. × I've tried marijuana.
× I've watched porn movies. × I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship. × I believe honesty is usually the best policy.
I curse sometimes.  (actually, a lot.) I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.

belle of the bullshit.

Literature meme.

What are your five favorite books, and how have they influenced you?

1. The Mists of Avalon, Marion Zimmer-Bradley - this always made me feel real, for some reason. It's remarkably odd. The earthen-ness of this book has always felt so much more natural to me than computers, iPods, cellphones have made me feel. This has influenced me in a creative fashion because of the fullness of the story, how so much is revealed but not revealed. And in a personal way because it has always been apart of my life; my mother read it to me when I was very young.
2. The Godfather, Mario Puzo - this is actually the most recent book that I've read, so I'm not sure how it will affect me. However, there is a mastery in Puzo's creative voice. He tells you what's going to happen, so you're prepared for the emotional blow of certain deaths. But he also keeps you in the dark with some of the most important parts of the plot. Also, the masculinity. While the above book is matriarchy, this is clearly patriarchy. It's interesting.
3. Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen - I love this story. It's corny, it's predictable, I know. I don't care. Mr. Darcy is a really cool character and always will be. He's a quiet aristocrat who is in love with a shrewish woman well below his birth. Madness and wit ensues. Nothing too serious, but has some really wonderful moments. This hasn't necessarily influenced me in anyway, but it has made me want to write about a couple of such passionate disagreement (see, Much Ado About Nothing.)
4. Wicked, Gregory MacGuire - The musical brings me great pain. This book, however, explores both the good and evil parts of Elphaba's psyche. It's never clear whether she is a good witch or a bad witch (like how in The Wizard of Oz, she's a bad witch; in Wicked (the musical), she's a good witch.) This has definitely influenced me creatively in that I try not to paint any character as good or bad. There always is a grey area. Though, I will say, none of them have ever committed murder.
5. Fight Club, Chuck Palaniuk - Distinctively masculine and very well written. It's honest, it's brutal, that's always great. There's almost something like an omerta in it (the first two rules of fight club.)

What about you people? Just curious.

Stolen. Why? Boredom.

Your Personality Is

Rational (NT)

You are both logical and creative. You are full of ideas.
You are so rational that you analyze everything. This drives people a little crazy!

Intelligence is important to you. You always like to be around smart people.
In fact, you're often a little short with people who don't impress you mentally.

You seem distant to some - but it's usually because you're deep in thought.
Those who understand you best are fellow Rationals.

In love, you tend to approach things with logic. You seek a compatible mate - who is also very intelligent.

At work, you tend to gravitate toward idea building careers - like programming, medicine, or academia.

With others, you are very honest and direct. People often can't take your criticism well.

As far as your looks go, you're coasting on what you were born with. You think fashion is silly.

On weekends, you spend most of your time thinking, experimenting with new ideas, or learning new things.

Stolen from Lindsay.

You may ask me three questions, no matter how personal, dirty, or strange, and I will answer them honestly. However, if you ask, you must repost this in your journal so others may ask you.

My art history teacher decided to go crazy on us for 30 minutes yesterday. We handed in our teacher evalution packets (which are annoymous) and apparently she's been getting calls from the school. I guess everyone told the truth, or something? (You know: how she digresses for the majority of the class time, how she is really degrading to the students, etc.) Karma comes and goes. :D

EVERYBODY WHO IS CURRENTLY READING THIS, LJ OR NO: Give me a word. I do not want an ordinary word, I want an extraordinary word which I can actually utilize. My favorite word is desideratum, but where the can I use that outside of haiku? (See, it has 5 syllables.) Look in my userinfo to see if it's a possilbility that I already have the word you're giving me. Consider this a Christmas/holiday/whatever present because it really, really will be. You are thanked beyond all possible measure. *worships* *annoints your feet* *bows down and says random things in a chant-like voice* You're beautiful, I tell you.

Tag Katie, Rebecca, Desirae, Dianna, Hannah, Georgia, Diana: you're it! :D

As for you, Rebecca... I will give you all the info when I have more than a few moments to myself. From last Thursday until now I have been exceedingly busy, but I should add that I am FIST tonight as well as teen/senior class. Tomorrow I have class and then, after class, I will be leaving for Baltimore, MD and be coming home either on Saturday. However on Saturday I may be heading to Katie's (? Katie, have you figured that out yet?), which means I will not be updating until after December 4th, most likely. I will try and sneak in an update here and there. (However, Rebecca! My mom was talking about *you know who* and she was like, "She's *you know what*, right?" And I'm thinking, "REBECCA! MY MOM'S PEGGED ANOTHER ONE! AHAHAHAHA!" However, no, I had no such act of bravery as you thought. :( However, it was pretty obvious to me that... well, you know. I really, really hope you see this. And get it, which I think you will.)
