othercat tagged me on this one: 'List five songs that you are currently digging ... it doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words or even if they're any good but they must be songs you're really enjoying right now. Post these instructions, the artist and the song in your blog along with your five songs.'
Such Great Heights ~ the Postal Service as covered by Iron and Wine
The Blower's Daughter ~ Damien Rice
White Flag ~ Dido. Shut up.
An Easy One ~ Hem
Mom's Comin' To My House ~ 3 Dead Trolls In a Baggie
'Then tag five other people to see what they're listening to.' Nuh-uh. I tag everyone.
This from journalkitten most recently: 'Whether it's "in addition to" or "instead of" the sort of entry you'd post in your lj, try posting one happy memory (without also putting in the doom and gloom "balance") and come up with one productive thing you have done in the past 24 hours. It doesn't have to be something huge -- if getting up and washing your face and brushing your teeth constitutes a big accomplishment, because you've been in a depressive funk for days, then that counts!'
Memory: Watching sarabi hyperventilate after having had her picture taken with Sylvester McCoy at Visions 95. Well, also while having her picture taken, but it was more pronounced afterwards *g* Also the shocked repetition of "I touched Brian Blessed. I fucking touched Brian Blessed."
Accomplishment: I have been wearing a red clown nose for the last half an hour and no one has noticed.
'The point is to aim for positive actions. Spread the word.'
Also from journalkitten, and this one I won't cut:
'List 5 reasons why you are a dork. And make them good reasons. Justify them. Explain them. Be loud and proud about how big of a dork you are! Then pick the 5 biggest dorks you know and
1)Every morning when I leave the house, I say to the cats, "Be good. We love you. We'll be home later. Everybody stay safe."
2)This was my bedroom wall when I was 13 only that picture was taken less than a month ago, because I never actually bothered to take the pictures down, and now the house is falling down around them. Yes, off to the left, that is a Max Headroom bumper sticker that says "Don't Say the P Word." (P = Pepsi. Max Headroom shilled for Coke.)
3) I once participated in a conversation regarding just how many timelines were created in the Back to the Future series, and whether any of the characters at the end of the third movie were actually the same characters (as in, from the original timeline) we started with. DAPOL Daleks were among the items used to represent the various characters as we sketched out the timelines on the banquet table in the state dining room at Harlaxton college. Nor is this the limit of my dorkdom, for lo, maeyan, sarabi, mr_sarabi and I recreated this conversation many years later on our back porch, using saltshakers and butter tubs.

5)Despite the fact that journalkitten mistyped her codes so her tags just say [Bad username in LJ tag], I know one of them is me.
I tag maeyan, sarabi, zortified, wolfling, and thebratqueen. Participation completely optional, of course. Not that your dorkdom is optional.
