So these got lost in the shuffle of the spring break trip! I know you've all been waiting on the edge of your seats LOL!

Oh and I also wanted to say, it's been a month or so now since the MEGA FRIENDING of 2016. If we're not clicking, feel free to unfriend me, no worries. I know my flist is very active and I'm having a hard time keeping up. So, yeah, no hard feelings if you want to take my off your list.

ANYWAY! On to the final 3:

29. [livejournal.com profile] eowyn asked: What's your all-time favourite R and R activity?
Hm, I guess snuggling up on the couch with a good movie and some popcorn, maybe a classic Disney/Pixar or Star Wars, something with a happy ending. (I'm realizing how little I actually R and R haha)

30. [livejournal.com profile] rogueslayer452 asked: What is the most obscure thing you own?
I have a Yoda backpack that was only made in the UK and my ex bought it for me off of eBay. I love it because it was a very limited run and it's just a damn cool backpack. (I'm trying to find a photo of me wearing him, but it was clearly before I knew how to tag stuff on Flickr...you can kinda see him here) I like him more than the Yoda backpacks that are out now because he is actually *in* a backpack, just like he is on Luke's back, not just Yoda hanging on like a monkey.

And then there is my Buffy academic books, which are pretty obscure because who the heck reads that stuff but us hardcore nerds? :)

31. [livejournal.com profile] icecoldrain asked: Do you have any tattoos? If you don't, have you ever considered getting one? NOPE! NOPE! I am a wuss. I have commitment issues. There is no way I would get a tattoo because I know I would immediately change my mind about it seconds later. Plus, I'm always afraid the moment I get a tattoo, the thing I tattooed will suddenly go evil. Like, if I did a Joss Whedon thing, Joss would turn into a crazy person and then I'd be stuck with it forever!

The only thing I think I could ever get tattooed on me would be "orangerful" because it's my other name. I've had it since 1999 so I guess I'm sticking with it?
orangerful: (Default)
We went hiking today. I actually felt pretty good when I woke up. I'm in the super-fun drainage portion of this cold so my nose was running and I kept hacking up yellow gunk BUT I FEEL NORMALISH!

Anyway, we hiked for most of the afternoon in beautiful Rocks Park (clever name...there are rocks there). Saw a lovely waterfall and a really cool rock formation that was apparently featured in 'Tuck Everlasting' for anyone who has seen that.

Only bad part is that I appear to be very sunburnt on my face. *FAIL*

anyway, on to some questions! Going to do a few ahead since we are driving to Wisconsin on Monday and I won't be able to post (well, I could post via my phone but we all know how fun THAT app is!)

25. [livejournal.com profile] stydia asked: What book would you like to see turned into a movie/television show?
I'm still waiting on my Y: The Last Man tv series! I know it has been optioned a few times now, but nothing has come of it. Right now, FX has it "in development" but there are no details. It would need to be a series though, there is FAR too much story to cram into a movie. It would be hilarious if they could do 'Transmetropolitan' as a TV show but I'm not sure they can legally show that stuff on tv...then again, there is a Preacher show that is supposed to come out later this year and that comic was banned (and not because of the weird scene where that guys has sex with an armadillo...).

26. [livejournal.com profile] rachg82 asked: What would you consider to be your spirit animal?
If I had to go with an actual animal I'd probably go with a dog (and now all I can think of is the Parks & Rec episode where they pick spirit dogs for everyone). I had an Australian Sheep Dog when I was a kid (well she was part that and something else, mutts 4 life). She was the best dog, so sweet and loving and fun. I think Australian sheep dog would be my spirit animal.

27. [livejournal.com profile] verdande_mi Favourite fandom-memory/happening?
All of my adventures at Dragon*Con, but especially getting to meet and hang out with [livejournal.com profile] faeriesfolly and [livejournal.com profile] jellibean for the first time after being LJ friends for so many years. And meeting up as the wild party that is D*C made it even more fun.

Other than that would be the time I met Joss Whedon, but I've blogged about that adventure a few times now because it makes me happy every time I think about it. :)

28. [livejournal.com profile] kaitydid33087 asked: If you could meet anyone, real or fictional, living or dead, who would it be and why?
Well, as I mentioned above, I met Joss so I'm good. :) I guess the next person on my list would be Steven Spielberg. I'd love to sit at a table with him and listen to him talk about film and directing and storytelling. I feel like he has a good grasp on where he came from and where he is going as a filmmaker.

Wait, no, Oscar Isaac. I want to sit and drool next to him. He so pretty.

(yes, I went from lofty fangirl to horny fangirl in the middle of writing that response, I blame the fact that I had tumblr open in the browser behind my LJ editor)

#20 [livejournal.com profile] dontjudgeme asked: What fictional animal would you want as your own pet if you could? Like...specific fictional: "Garfield" would fit here but just "unicorn" would not.
I'd say Buckbeak but there were far too many safety issues with that pet and I don't need the Malfoys sueing me! :P
Right now, because this is where my mind is, I would say Dogmeat from Fallout 4. He was a good companion, never judges you, goes and kills badguys for you and also brings me stuff. Also he is IMMORTAL!

I kept thinking of other creatures but they weren't really "pets". Like Falcor from Neverending Story. Or Jake from Adventure Time. Or R2-D2...they are companions more than pets.

#21 [livejournal.com profile] phenomenal asked: What do you do in your free time?
Well, if judging by today is anything to go by, nothing. But I was home sick with some kind of sinus thing so you can't blame me!

Freetime usually is spent goofing around online, watching tv or movies, and playing video games.

Oh and reading, though that is usually only at my work lunch break and before bedtime.

When the weather is nice, we do tend to plan weekend hikes or at least nice walks around the park. And if I can get the time off, I like to go on trips and other adventures that tend to leave me less rested than most other people's vacations LOL.
orangerful: (doctor who too normal // orangerful)
[livejournal.com profile] rogueslayer452 asked: In your opinion, which show (past or present) do you think was completely overhyped by the media (note: not horrible, but just overexposed)? What show do you think was completely overlooked?
The Walking Dead.

Happy Endings. This show cracked me UP almost every time, was far too clever for it's own good. It could have been so much more but the network didn't really give it a chance. I think some of this was because it wasn't streaming on Hulu or there was an odd delay or something. I remember trying to watch it on the network app while getting lunch before a meeting and just having an awful time streaming it.

[livejournal.com profile] dontjudgeme asked: You've been tasked with creating a fandom-related theme park. You get to choose the fandom, the location of the park, and the first 2 attractions. What are they?
I want to say Star Wars but Disney is already got that covered for me. I'm not sure a Buffy theme park would work LOL, it's kinda like Hunger Games, we'll all end up dead at the end!

OH How about a Doctor Who theme park? It could be fun and educational, travel to different time periods and explore, just like The Doctor and companion.

The main attraction would be a ride in the TARDIS! Marvel at how it is bigger on the inside! Feel it get wibbly-wobbley as you trave through space and time!

The second attraction...hm...I feel like this would be a good daring escape. Escape from Pompeii!...no wait, I think that is an actual ride at Busch Gardens...how about escape from the weeping angels? It will be a ride on rails that takes you through the underground lair where the angel Bob and his group are awaiting you. Don't BLINK! (seriously, don't, the cart will inch closer any time you blink)

[livejournal.com profile] night_owl_9 asked: What subjects were your favorite in school? Your least favorite?
Wow, you know what, I don't really remember? I enjoyed most of my classes in school. I know the class I had the worst time in was Geometry in 10th grade. That just did not click with me at all. And the last semester of Chemistry was rough. Otherwise, I had a good time. My very favorite semester was when my English and History/Social Studies classes actually lined up and were covering the same time period (yes, imagine that, reading Great Gatsby while studing the 1920s! And reading Grapes of Wrath while learning about the Great Depression, crazy!)

[livejournal.com profile] dontjudgeme asked: What are different ways that you categorize yourself? (i.e. sister, daughter, INFJ, star wars lover)
My profile on almost all of my social sites now reads "librarian. blogger. gamer. geek. girl." which probably sums me up the best.

I geek out about a lot of things, though Star Wars and Joss Whedon would probably be at the top. My facebook used to list my religion as Whedonist LOL (Whedon fans never had a cool nickname as far as I know...).

Oh, I like this quite from Mike Myers, which is "I am a site specific extrovert". I can be a total spaz but I choose my moments wisely. I'm definitely more extroverted than I was as a kid, but I think that just comes with being more comfortable in my own skin.

[livejournal.com profile] xfirefly9x asked: What is your favourite word(s)?

perfunctory - used to describe something that is done without energy or enthusiasm because of habit or because it is expected.

(Found this word when reading 'Hitchhiker's Guide' and I've always loved the sound of it...wish I could use it more often)

shenanigans - a devious trick used especially for an underhand purpose

(We say this at work a lot, usually "NO SHENANIGANS!" when we talk about what the evening shift will hold. It's fun to say)

and also "frak"
orangerful: (Default)
[livejournal.com profile] qwentoozla asked: What books and/or movies have you reread/rewatched most?
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams (my all time favorite)
Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton

Both of these I fell in love with during middle school, when I had more time to read for fun but wasn't quite into exploring books yet, so I just read them over and over.

Movies would probably be:
Star Wars trilogy (but probably RotJ the most of those)
Lord of the Rings trilogy (FotR the most)
Indiana Jones trilogy (ToD the most)
Fantastic Mr. Fox (probably the most recent rewatch)
Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
Little Mermaid/Beauty and the Beast/Aladdin - the movies that saved Disney in the 90s so they were on a loop during my childhood

[livejournal.com profile] dontjudgeme said: Tell me about one of your favorite people (that you actually know, not a distant person that you know of).

The older I get and the more I work in the public library and interact with other parents and families, the more I appreciate my Mom and how awesome she is. While nobodies childhood is perfect, my negative memories of the past are very small and pretty fleeting. She and my Dad did a fantastic job of making sure I would have everything I needed as a kid and into adulthood. She's always encouraged me to be myself, have fun, explore, create and just live life to the fullest. And while I may have been sheltered from some of the darker parts of life, I never felt completely naive. She never censored me from books or movies, but she did gentley guide me. She had enough faith and trust in me to let me decide what was appropriate. For better or for worse, she let me make my own decisions and my own mistakes, but she never held it against me either.

And she's still pretty great. I mean, she just gave me all my Star Wars toys, which they have been storing for over 10 years since I moved out! And she crocheted that Ewok scarf for me and then bought me an R2-D2 purse for my birthday. She is a geek and raised a geek.

Cliche but true. :)

And now I must go shower! This whole daylight savings thing has thrown off my whole morning! I was late for things before I went to bed last night. :-\
orangerful: (music beatles wave  // marshmallow)
[livejournal.com profile] eowyn asked: What 3 CDs would you take to an isolated island with you? They're the only CDs you can listen to for the next 10 years.

GAH this one is tricky...

Beatles - Hard Day's Night. It's my favorite album, the only one that is all Lennon/McCartney. I feel like if I was trapped on an island, I'd need a Beatles fix every now and then.

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back soundtrack - if I can't have the movie with me, the soundtrack will do. ESB has all the great themes - the imperial march, yoda's theme, han and leia's theme...if I can't watch the movie, I can watch it in my mind! Plus, sometimes you want just music, no words.

Bastille - All This Bad Blood (is this cheating? It's a 2-disc album...) I have listened to this album SO MANY TIMES since I bought it and I love it. This was the hardest one to pick because it is new to my collection but I think I'd want something new. But I really love the sound of this band. Plus, i have an image of me burning stuff and dancing around to 'Things We Lost in the Fire' as part of a very cathartic experience after getting stranded.

And I'm going to go to bed now and probably wake up at 3am and think "NO WHAT AS I THINKING, NOT THOSE CDS!"
orangerful: (Default)
[livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon asked: If you could choose to be anything, anyone - who/what would you be?

Despite the state of the world right now, I think I would like to remain human LOL.

I've always thought working in the creative arts in some way would be fun, but I was never brave enough to go into it. That fear of rejection and such. But if I had a way to magically wish myself into a successful career as a performer, that might be fun for a bit. :) I'd love to try it out, putting on a rock concert for people or being on stage.
orangerful: (laugh with bubbles // orangerful)
[livejournal.com profile] verdande_mi asked: Do you have an reoccuring dreams?

It's been awhile since I had it, but I used to have a dream where my teeth would fall out. It was never to the point of being a nightmare (even though it sounds like one) but in the dream they would just come out and I would sorta view the whole thing like the guy in 'The Fly' when his parts start to fall off LOL.

If I'm having a rough time, a theme that comes over is still being with my ex or that my ex shows up on my front doorstep and for some reason, in my dream, I feel obligated to let him stay. I find these dreams are usually triggered by general stress.

I still have a few dates left !!! New friends **waves** feel free to ask me anything!
orangerful: (say cheese // orangerful)
[livejournal.com profile] spaciireth asked: What countries have you visited/want to visit?


  • United States (obviously, since I live here, but I am counting it because I have visited several places around the country!)

  • Italy (well...I was like 3 so I don't remember it at all, but I was there dammit! NAVY BRAT FTW!)

  • England (I went to London and Liverpool with brief stops in Mildenhall because our flight was through the military)

  • Australia (with the People to People Student program when I was 17)

  • Canada (brief hop across the border for Niagra Falls and my family went to a casino but I was too young and had to sit outside with my grandma)

  • Bermuda (because friends went there and invited us)


I cannot wait to add more to this list! I have my passport ready to go. I want to get Tim and Sylvia set up with passports over the next few years so we can all go on adventures together.

[livejournal.com profile] 1_rhiannon_1 asked: What has made you smile today?

We went to Skyzone for Sylvia's birthday party and I really wanted to give it a try, so I bought myself a pass and spent about 30 minutes jumping around like a dufus. It was insane but really fun.

#Skyzone is pretty much a bouncy house for adults.  #birthday #exhausted #fun


To top it all off, I had my brand new R2D2 purse that my parents gave me for my birthday yesterday and the girl at the counter liked it and asked me about it and even took photos of it.

And in about 30 minutes we are going to get sushi! SMILES ALL AROUND!!!!!!

[livejournal.com profile] icecoldrain asked: If you could go anywhere in the world in the past, present, or future, where would you go? Why?

This is a tough question! I think people tend to romantacize the past and I can't think of any historical events I might want to witness that probably wouldn't end up letting me down in the end (I always think of that scene in Timeline by Michael Crichton when the businessman is trying to charge people to travel back in time and see events and they show him Washington crossing the Delaware and, of course, he's not poised on the end of the boat like the famous painting, but hunkered down and keeping warm...anyway, I digress)

So if I had the ability to transport myself anywhere, I'd like to visit Australia or Japan right now. If I could travel back in time...maybe a fly on the wall during the filming of ESB or RotJ...maybe at ILM during Jurassic Park or something like that. Or maybe Henson studios during the hayday of The Muppet Show. They all seem like good people LOL.

STILL HAVE FREE DATES FOR MORE QUESTIONS!
orangerful: (one girl // orangerful)

December 8th: Your most favorite food! [livejournal.com profile] thistle_chaser

This is another tough question but I think I'm going to have to go with sushi. I don't know why, but I crave it constantly! (I tried to use this excuse as a reason to go get some but, alas, the holiday shopping is crimping by restaurant take-out style this month)

Untitled

I do love a good medium rare steak though...talk about opposites!

...this whole photo meme has made me realize how unorganized my Flickr page has become since using Instagram! Apparently my tags were not important correctly and there are 2000 pictures in need of my attention. :(

16 April: What's for lunch?!? [livejournal.com profile] faeriesfolly
I had every intention of taking a photo of my lunch on Thursday. I ordered Jimmy Johns but in a total blonde moment, I set the delivery time for 5pm instead of 4pm (my Linner break...I work 12:30-9 on Thursdays so I just have a late breakfast and late lunch and dinner when I get home). Anyway, I called JJ and they brought my order over sooner. But in the madness I forgot to snap a photo.

ANYWAY, my favorite think to order from Jimmy Johns is the Club Lulu and then I add cheese and cucumbers, pluse extra mayo. OM NOM NOM I can't believe I ate the whole thing!


17 April: What is one thing you always wanted as a kid, but never got? [livejournal.com profile] blizzardskies
A PONY! No wait, that wasn't it...honestly I was a very lucky kid and pretty happy with my things. I guess if anything I wanted a gameboy and never got one. Though I did eventually buy a DS and I never play it so...good call mom and dad, I probably wouldn't have played with my Gameboy either!
orangerful: (one girl // orangerful)
Found my book o' quotes. Most of them are from tv shows, movies, and then random "quote of the day" emails my mom forwards me BUT there are a few quotes from actual BOOKS that I have read and then made a point to write down so I will share then now:

Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new. When it was made, they lay in each other's arms, holding love, asleep.
- from "The Lathe of Heaven" by Ursula K. Leguinn

"What are you doing with that spork?"
"Well, when we find some bad guys, I'm going to spork the fuck out of them!"

- from "Dirty Job" by Christopher Moore

All your life you live so close to truth it becomes a permanent blur in the corner of your eye. And when something nudges it into outline, it's like being ambushed by the grotesque.
- from "Rosezencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" by Tom Stoppard

I think that life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about it."
- from "Lady Windermere's Fan" by Oscar Wilde
orangerful: (one girl // orangerful)
Well, frick, only four days into April and I've already missed a questions LOL! I still have a few open spots if anyone wants to submit a question or request.

01 April: Do you have a favourite quote/passage from a book? [livejournal.com profile] verdande_mi

Someday I will make it a policy to read books with a notepad next to me so I can jot down favorite lines or quotes for later. I very rarely do this. BUT I do love Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, it is my all time favorite book, so any quote from there makes me happy. I love the tone and that dry British sarcasm, and I've adopted a lot of the phrases into my everyday vocabulary:

If I asked where we were," said Arthur weakly, "would I regret it?"
Ford stood up. "We're safe," he said.
"Oh good," said Arthur.
"We're in a small galley cabin," said Ford, "in one of the spaceships of the Vogon Constructor Fleet."
"Ah," said Arthur, "this is obviously some strange usage of the word safe that I wasn't previously aware of."


I do have a little book of quotes at home though...I will look at it later to see which things I've bothered to write down in the past.

02 April: Where would you NOT go back to for a vacation/visit? [livejournal.com profile] blizzardskies

I would never go to Bermuda again. I've been twice now, and while it was lovely, I don't really like those kinds of "sitting around" trips. You end up spending so much money on just sitting...I can sit at home. Also, I have far too many bad memories connected to people I no longer talk to that I associate with that place.

03 April: Favorite/least favorite video game characters? [livejournal.com profile] faeriesfolly

Oooh this is a tough question. Since I just finished my first playthrough of Dragon Age: Inquisition I'm inclined to answer with those characters. I love Varric, he was the best part of DA2 and I was so happy he was along for the ride in DAI. Vivienne, on the other hand, frustrated me no end because I just cannot support the Circles and tranquils etc.

Oh and I love Elizabeth and Booker from Bioshock Infinite.

04 April: What made you feel happy today? [livejournal.com profile] coco_waters

It has been a long day at work because I've had a headache BUT I did get to help a gentlemen find more books to read and I think I "got" him, insofar as what he was looking for. He had just read all the "Killing Lincoln/Kennedy/Patton" books and wanted more "readable" history. I gave him "Unbroken" and "Devil in the White City" and explained my reasoning behind picking them out for him and he seemed genuinely thrilled. I love a good reader's advisory session. :)

orangerful: (music beatles jump // marshmallow)
LOL so like 12 days ago I asked for [livejournal.com profile] ragnarok_08 to ask my 5 questions as part of a meme and then I sat here and didn't answer ANY OF THEM. LOL. I am so awful at question memes. But it's 7pm and I'm mentally done with work even though I have two hours left.

1. What do you love the most about Buffy The Vampire Slayer?
The care that was taken with telling a full and complete story. That Joss had a vision and the conclusion to the story felt right. Yes, it faltered every now and then, but the core of the show was always there. Friendship, feminism, and doing what is right.

2. What genre you love reading?
Oooh that is tricky! I can't tell you genres I don't typically read (ROMANCE) but if a book is well written, I will give it a try. I really enjoy Science Fiction that takes a current situation and throws it to an extreme (Hunger Games and reality survival, Unwind and abortion debate) but I've recently really started to enjoy realistic fiction...as long as it's SHORT. LOL. I can't take long-winded realistic fiction.

3. Is there any type of music that you're not a fan of?
Rap and Pop!Country. Both of them tend to represent values I don't agree with (not always, but many times I'm uncomfortable with the things being said)

4. DC Comics or Marvel Comics?
Vertigo! Image! IDW! :) I guess if I had to pick between those two, I would go Marvel's superheroes. But most of my favorite series are Vertigo which is owned by DC...

5. What is your favorite holiday?
Christmas. I love buying presents for people. I love all the little traditions, like making cookies and watching movies. I don't really have any other time of year that I have a traditional activity.

And now, a haiku:

[livejournal.com profile] coco_waters asked Which book(s) have you re-read the most? (or if you don’t like to re-read books, do you have a particular reason not to?)

The only books I've re-read are Jurassic Park and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Both of them were the books that got me back into reading after a long break as a kid. I also had them both as audiobooks so I read them and then listened to them over and over. I have huge chunks of them memorized. LOL. Now I have TOO MANY BOOKS so there is not time to re-read!!!

[livejournal.com profile] thekaiserchief asked What fictional universe would you love to live in and which universe would you not want to live in?

I know I would NOT want to live in Westeros or Panem. I would be the first to die LOL. As for one I would *want* to live in...hm...I am not sure, there are not many fictional universes that don't end up having some evil plot twist to them that would scare me away! Maybe a universe where the Muppets really are just part of the world...though this feels close to Roger Rabbit and toon town and we know there would be Muppets rights issues and such.

[livejournal.com profile] rogueslayer452 asked Who is your current celebrity crush? Decisions decisions! I adore Kristen Bell and Jennifer Lawrence. They both seem to be my kind of ladies, extremely fun and goofy, love food and don't mind making silly faces. As for guys...hm...Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans (after much debate...but the latest Cap movie sealed it for me - I have a soft spot for superhero boy scouts), Timothy Olyphant is also very easy on the eyes and I still love Matt Smith <3 (it's odd but I find I have more lady!crushes now than boy crushes.)

[livejournal.com profile] pleasant_valley asked Which fictional creature would you most like to have as a pet? Maybe it's just because we watched Game of Thrones, but my mind immediately goes to Dire Wolf. I know they are not typically pets, I'd like to have some circumstances, like how the Starks found their pups, bring us together. Then we'd be bonded for life and she would protect me and also be a warm snuggle partner on cold nights.
