Your Cute Monster Says Your Inner Demon is Sensitivity

You are a giving, open, loving person. You truly want the world to be a better place.

You appreciate what you have in life. You are very content.

You are very sensitive, and your sensitivity can be a double edged sword.

People think you're cute because you're generous. You are easy to love - it's part of your charm.

hahahahaha, hahaha, haha, ha

Stolen from [ profile] fiannaharpar:

Describe me in one word- just one single word. Positive or negative.

Leave your word in a comment before looking at what words others have used.

Copy and paste the meme to your journal to find out how people describe you when limited to one word.

Don't feel obligated. I'm just curious. :)

The first seven (7) people to respond to this post will get something made by me.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year (2009).
- No requests-- it could be anything. It may be a mix CD. It may be a poem.
I may draw or paint something.
I might bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows?
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch is that if you don't re-post this offer, the bargain is void!

In other news, today has been exceedingly productive. I caught myself before I got miserable and bored and depressed, so I've checked my job websites and confirmed references. I've played Puzzle Quest and been in a scene on WantonWicked.

I would be bored, except that my friend Dan who is no longer on LJ has given me a silly challenge: I am to write an epic poem about Reese's Pieces.

Here we go! If it doesn't totally suck, I will post it here afterward.

Also that reminds me in a roundabout way: VARIS, I NEED TO ASK YOU A QUESTION.

More interesting things later, but:

Your result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test...

Modern, Cool Nerd

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!

I will be getting my cardmaking materials this weekend, making them, and mailing them. Ergo, cards will be late, but they're handmade, so that makes up for it a bit I think maybe?

I'm debating doing some vocal challenges on Rock Band, but eh, I dunno. We'll see.

oh, and re: meme: I'm not tagging anyone, so whatever.

Meme thing:

Yesterday I got cuddles. I like cuddles. They make me happy. I also got to go to [ profile] valancy17's Christmas party, which was awesome. [ profile] blackpaladin and I watched more West Wing, and it was crackalicious and awesome and augh I need to watch episode 2.02 asap.

In other news:

[ profile] blackpaladin finally discovered that Noah Wyle looks like Nathan Fillion today, while we're watching part of The Librarian series. I am amused.

Anyway, it's [ profile] blackpaladin's birthday, so I'm going to go hang out with him. Have a great day, everyone.
cassildra: A silver pegasus on a purple shield. (Default)
So part ... four, I think, of that meme.

Last night was date night! [ profile] blackpaladin and I went to Max & Erma's for dinner, before we got a text from [ profile] fiannaharpar, inviting us to meet her, [ profile] lrstrobel, and the little one for ice cream ~9. We finished up at the restaurant around 7:40, and went to hang out at the Barnes and Noble at the Waterworks. They were at the theater watching Bolt, see.

But, yeah, we wasted time there, lusted over various DVDs that [ profile] blackpaladin couldn't get because of the Moratorium, and minorly broke [ profile] fiannaharpar by showing her The Beatles and Philosophy. Then it was off to King's for dessert!

Mind you, I'd had a Godiva Chocolate Peppermintini with dinner, and since I have no alcohol tolerance whatsoever, I was extremely giggly. When we got to King's for dessert, I decided that damn it, I was going to get a chocolate overload! So I ordered a chocolate milk to start, and then got the Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream Cake with a Frownie. I didn't even make it through the ice cream and cake! I hit the chocolate wall with about three bites to go. :(

And then we came home, played on our computers, and ended up having a long, important conversation. Last night was good!

Today's plan involves going to Giant Eagle and then hitting [ profile] valancy17's winter holiday party. There will probably be a bit of cleaning as well, seeing as tomorrow is [ profile] blackpaladin's birthday party!

Between coughing my lungs out and my right breast being exceedingly itchy, I've been awake more-or-less since [ profile] blackpaladin left for work this morning. Nosir, I don't like it, and ergo will probably be dozing off and on for the rest of the day.

I played a neat little game last night called "Black Death". I got a bit cranky because omg, Messina wasn't a city on the board, but that was my inner bitchy historian talking more than anything else. It's a fun game, and even though I tied for last, I was in the lead there for a while--until [ profile] blackpaladin hedged me in, leaving me in fucking Lubosk with no way out. There are no friends in gaming, just people you're temporarily letting slide.

My mother is apparently getting antsy about Christmas dinner, and has gotten my brother to ask me about when the boy and I are going over. :/ If she was so upset over it, why didn't she call or email? It isn't like I would have had an answer for her anyway, but the principle of it... blah. I guess this means that we need to talk about Christmas plans, [ profile] blackpaladin.

Oh right, that meme thing. Day three. What made me happy...

I got to play a game called Black Death. I also got to throw a necromancer at my boyfriend a few times before he refused to give the plush back to me (probably because I was threatening to give the toy more lovin's than him last night. I was a bit cranky.)

And now, I am going to try and sleep again, because ugh.

oh, remember Alex, those of you who were around when my brother got married? The guy who told me, the day before the wedding, that he couldn't go because his mommy thought he had too much schoolwork? He left me a message on Facebook. I'm debating not answering him at all, because, damn, acting like nothing happened two years later? Not kosher, dude. There's a reason I stopped talking to the kid.

Seriously going to crash now. Laters.

I've used computers literally as long as I can remember. I vaguely remember using a DOS machine to play the original version of Sid Meier's Pirates! around age 5. I didn't know what I was doing, but the graphics were pretty and omg color! Not that I remember how to use DOS, but the point here is kind of moot.

I've used Microsoft products since the beginning, except for a brief stint in elementary schools when Apple was still the king of education machines. It took me a bit to get used to using Mac OSX when I was messing around on [ profile] chapelski's computer, but it came to me quickly enough.

Windows, in its infinite (?) glory, never really seems to make any radical changes to how it works. Oh, sure, a lot of the back-end stuff that the user rarely sees changes, which forces hardware and software companies to scramble around and change stuff on their end, but the user doesn't have much of a learning curve when it comes to installing the latest WinOS. (Granted, I haven't played with Vista much--if at all--but from what I hear, it's basically XP with the neat little Mac OS thingy at the bottom. Correct me if I'm wrong, please.)

Now, we come to the Eee PC and Linux.

The OS on this thing is incredibly easy to use. It involves looking at icons, choosing which you'd like to use, and clicking. If what you want isn't on that specific tab, well, there are more options at the top of the display. Really, you'd have to be an idiot to not find what you wanted (as long as it was pre-installed, of course).


I've been spoiled in a lot of ways. I tend to jump into things feet first, never reading the manual, because--shit, dude, I've been playing with computers all my life! Why should I stop and read the fucking manual? Pfft.

Now, however, I'm finding with the Eee and Linux in general, I tend to need Shroud on so I can look things up as I go. I'm so afraid of breaking something that I double, sometimes triple check what I'm doing (and I ask [ profile] blackpaladin all sorts of stupid questions along the way, let me assure you). Linux doesn't exactly intimidate me--in fact, I rather like the advanced setup [ profile] blackpaladin has on his Eee, and hope to have that figured out by the end of the week (with lots of help, of course). I guess I'm just kind of saying that while I'm comfortable using the OS as-is, I'd like the advanced set-up a lot better. It doesn't hurt that it reminds me of Windows XP.

I don't think I'm computer illiterate. In fact, I've been called on more than once to use my (somewhat questionable) tech skills to troubleshoot someone's problem. I think what I'm trying to say is that I am excited to learn more about Linux and how it works, and I won't be intimidated by something as silly as this (kind of) idiot-proof interface I've got going right now.

In other news, I was tagged to do a meme: For 8 days, post something that made you happy that day. Tag 8 people to do the same. I'm going to do things a bit differently, though--since I tend to blog in the morning, I will mention something that made me happy the day before. I also don't feel like tagging anyone specific, because I know my flist--if they want to do it, they will. If not, they won't.

Anyway. Thing that made me happy yesterday.

Apart from the usual waking-up-next-to-my-love thing, yesterday was Tuesday Night Dinner. I tend to enjoy TND as a way to hang out with a group of people who are a lot of fun, and who have accepted me for who (and what) I am, quickly and painlessly. Plus, I got to play Fluxx while playing on my new computer, and I got to watch a group of people play Dominion for the first time. :D

I also got my new computer, [ profile] blackpaladin's Christmas and birthday gifts, and gave him his birthday present. (For the record, it was the Kung Fu Panda Pandamonium pack.)

Today's plans involve... I actually don't know yet. I'll probably just chill out for a while.
