Sunday Flotsam and Jestam

Wouldn't that be a great name for a band?

ABOUT MEEEEEE MEME swiped from woman_of_, for the "benefit" of my new friends:



1. I like cheese. No, okay, that's a serious understatement. I FREAKING LOVE CHEESE. I live in dire fear of developing lactose intolerance. My favorite cheese is a tie between feta and port wine. I hope in the future to explore some more exotic cheeses, especially goat cheeses.

2. I have Crohn's Disease. It's a sometimes debilitating, always kind of painful intestinal disorder that messes with my life alot. Hence the fact that I get grouchier and more hermit-y as I get older. That is too why! I'm actually lucky to receive good healthcare, and the treatment I'm receiving is keeping me from having to have surgery, or facing some of the horrors others with the disease face. *knocks on wood*

3. When it comes to religion, I consider myself an eclectic. I don't believe in an anthropomorphized deity, but I find precepts of neo-paganism and Buddhism helpful in daily living. Or, you know, in those proverbial foxhole situations. ;) I also believe that although there may be a larger power than ourselves in the universe, I don't think it could possibly be within our limited understanding, and saying that we *know* "God" and her/his/their/its will is the height of arrogance. Mostly I'm an angry agnostic with a bit of a thing against organized religions -- except UU's and Quakers, they're so nice -- as used by humans, usually against other humans. And that includes the aforementioned neo-paganism and Buddhism, which can have their share of oppressive practices.

4. My all time favorite movie remains Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I am one of those geeks who likes to sit and quote the dialogue while the movie's running. The Big Lebowski is a close second, and is becoming the same geeky experience.

5. I wear Birkenstocks all the time. I don't care if they're not in style, or if they carry stereotypical implications. I have a summer pair (the classic hippie sandals), and a fall/winter pair (clogs that serve well as work shoes too). The only time I don't wear them is when it's snowing outside, I'm exercising, or hiking -- I have books, sneakers and hiking boots for those. :D

6. I was born and raised on the Southeastern Connecticut shore, and although I've lived in Upstate New York for longer than I lived there, I still consider myself both an Ocean Baby and a New Englander.

7. I hope to go back to school someday and get a PhD, maybe in Literature. I wish I could stay in school for the rest of my life, because I love it.

Oh, Taylor Momsen, GO AWAY. You keep trying to be a cross between Wendy Williams and Marie Cherie, but all you look like is a typical idiot teenager... but a famous one, being a really loud idiot in a very big public eye.

Beck: 'I Haven't Seen A Half-Monkey, Half-Person Yet'

Oh my freaking God that asshole is an idiot. You know what's more annoying that ignorance, bigotry, and fear mongering? REALLY LOUD ignorance, bigotry and fear-mongering.

But I say that a lot, don't I.

30 Days Memes, DAY FOURTEEN

Your OTP: Romantically, I don't even know that I have one. I enjoy Eric/Godric in fic, and if I had to pick one of the main OTP's it would be Eric/Sookie, but I think I've said before I'm not crazy about Sookie, I just want more Eric, preferably naked. I like Lafayette/Jesus, too. My absolute OTP, however, has to be Eric & Pam Friendship. I just adore them.

a scene that made you laugh: Almost any scene between Angel and Spike in Season 5 cracked me up -- astronauts vs. cavemen remains a favorite. Spike's little speech in "In the Dark" still gives me a giggle, too. OH! My very favorite ever is poor Angel imagining himself dancing in She. Wow, there are really a lot of funny moments in this show. Pretty much the entirety of Smile Time, for example.

a scene that made you laugh: The Mayor's famous checklist: PTA Meeting? Check. Haircut? Check. Become Invincible? Check. And I confess that during season four and five, Spike was just freaking hilarious. In Pangs, for example, him freaking out over Buffy making the bear cracks me up.

UNDO IT! UNDO IT!

BWAH! Spike is the funniest thing about that episode. Actually, Spike is the funniest thing about Season 4. And most of 5, come to think of it. ;)

Try this cheese. I am lactose intolerant and I can eat Goat and Sheep's cheese as they are lactase free. :) And let me tell you, I can eat some Murcia. It is amazing.

When I saw your quote from Glen Beck here, since it just said "Beck" I immediately thought you meant the singer. *headdesk* Tells you how much I don't pay attention to talking heads. And him especially.

HEE! I'd forgotten about Spike and the Bear. Awesome.

Oooh, that cheese looks good, thanks for the rec! ;)

"YOU MADE A BEAR!"
"I didn't mean to!"
"UNDO IT! UNDO IT!" LOL That whole scene with him sitting in the chair shot full of arrows kills me.

Well, I mean, jeeze (heh). It's hard not to be as a free-thinking person when you see how especially the major religions are more often than not used as a weapon to bludgeon and oppress others with.

HULK SMASH.

Or, you know... Einstein smash?
