Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] gottalovev.

50 Questions for fic readers. Put a number or two in the comments for me to answer.

[ETA: I found out the hard way that LJ won't let me post comments with hyperlinks in them today, so I am adding my answers to the body of the post instead. ::kicks LJ::]

You can tell a lot about someone by the music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your iPod/iPhone/iTunes/media player and write down the first 10 songs.

1. Offering by Black City Lights
2. In My Room by Yaz
3. Until She Comes by Psychedelic Furs
4. Don't Stop Believin' by Journey
5. Got It Made by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
6. Drag by Placebo
7. Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol
8. Shake the Disease by Depeche Mode
9. Under Pressure by Queen & David Bowie
10. More Than a Feeling by Boston

Geez, this looks like it was done by two different people using two different iPods.

[livejournal.com profile] agt_spooky broadly tagged her flist for this and I haven't been posting much lately, so I'm taking this as a poke with a sharp stick to be more active on LJ. So, 7 things you may or may not know about me:

1. I have the ticket stubs, wristbands, or badges of every convention I've ever attended. The first one was TARDIS 21 at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in 1984. Back in those days, you bought your tickets from someplace like Ticketmaster and they gave you an actual ticket like a concert or theater ticket. My parents bought two tickets and shared the second one between them so they could take turns chaperoning me on alternate days.

2. When I was in high school, the big crushes for girls were Rick Springfield and the members of Duran Duran. My biggest crushes in high school were Lord Peter Wimsey and d'Artagnan of the Musketeers. Yeah, I read a lot.

3. Part of my college graduation requirements for my degree was to do a one semester internship and then write a 30 page paper about the experience. The end of the semester happened to coincide with convention season here in Chicago, so the bulk of the paper was written between panels and while waiting in lines at Visions '90 (coincidentally also at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare).

4. I'm an only child. Both of my parents are also only children. I've never had aunts, uncles, or cousins.

TV Meme

the_other_sandy: Black and white TV (TV)
Filched from [livejournal.com profile] mangacat201.

- Bold all of the following TV shows of which you've watched 3 or more episodes.
- Italicize a show if you're positive you've seen every episode.
- Asterisk * if you have at least one full season on tape or DVD
- If you want, add up to 3 additional shows (keep the list in alphabetical order).

The List )

It appears that I've managed to watch entirely too much television in my lifetime. It also appears that I was willing to watch damn near anything back in the days when we only had 4 channels.

• I re-alphabetized the list because I'm a librarian and it was killing me not to have it in ALA filing order. I also added Max Headroom, QED, and Spy Game because they are criminally underrated shows that more people should have watched.

My LJ is five years old today! In honor of the occasion, here's a special state of the LJ meme:

# Number of journal entries: 976 (including this one)

# Number of people on your friends list: 55

# Person who introduced you to LJ: [livejournal.com profile] viridian5, although it took me something like 8 years to get one after she did

# Still friends with this person: As much as you can be friends with someone you've never met in RL ;-)

# How many people have you introduced to LJ: 1 ::waves at [livejournal.com profile] bit_boy:: Not that he ever posts to it

# List everyone on your friends list who you have met in person: [livejournal.com profile] agt_spooky, [livejournal.com profile] ant3ka, [livejournal.com profile] asyouleft, [livejournal.com profile] awfulhorrid, [livejournal.com profile] bit_boy, [livejournal.com profile] bookwurm, [livejournal.com profile] gonturan, [livejournal.com profile] jennetj, [livejournal.com profile] kb9vcn, [livejournal.com profile] kroki_refur, [livejournal.com profile] loves_bitch, [livejournal.com profile] oxbastetxo, [livejournal.com profile] queeberquabbler, [livejournal.com profile] samazon13, [livejournal.com profile] seesmooshrun, [livejournal.com profile] smallwaldo, [livejournal.com profile] thefannishwaldo, [livejournal.com profile] wilde_moon, [livejournal.com profile] wraithfodder, and [livejournal.com profile] zazreil

# Total LJers met: 20 (technically 19, since 2 of these people are the same person)

# 5 people on LiveJournal that you have known the longest: I'm only going with 3, since they tend to blow away the competition. I've known [livejournal.com profile] bookwurm for about 28 years, [livejournal.com profile] kb9vcn for about 23 years, and [livejournal.com profile] bit_boy for about 19 years or so

# Anyone on LJ you can't stand: Not at the moment

# Name one person on your friends list you would most like to meet: Probably [livejournal.com profile] viridian5 because she's the person I've known the longest online without ever having met

# Ever ban someone from commenting in your journal: Just spammers

# Number of comments: Posted: 3,968 / Received: 3,697

# Biggest pet peeve about LJ: The way they periodically take away a useful feature that works to replace it with a useless feature that no one wants, then insult the users for not falling all over themselves in gratitude

# Do you feel close to most of the people on your friends list: Yes, mostly because I've met about 1/3 of my flist in person

# How many journals on LiveJournal do you have: Just this one

# Communities I currently own/maintain: None, although I do maintain the Hawaii Five-0 page over at [livejournal.com profile] newbieguide

Taken from [livejournal.com profile] viridian5. Films I've seen are bolded, while ones I've seen parts of have asterisks. (That's the way you're supposed to do it anyway. I didn't asterisk anything because I couldn't decide how much of a film I'd have to see to count it. Between my film classes and moving image museums, I've seen from tiny clips to entire scenes of a whole lot of these movies.)

The List )

Hey, Vee, I didn't pan out on it! Total = 153/1079 154/1079.

Since I'm apparently the only person on my flist who hasn't done this one yet:

SIX NAMES YOU GO BY:
1. Sandra
2. Sandy
3. The other Sandy
4. Aunt Sandy

Umm, that's pretty much it. How many names does one person need?

Remember the song lyrics meme I did last week? My flist got 5 out of 20. Usually you guys get at least 10. 8-(

What really surprised me was that 4 of the song lyrics actually contained the song title, but only one of them was guessed (and [livejournal.com profile] viridian5 would have guessed that song even if I had quoted lyrics that didn't have the title in them).

Anyway, I went back and added the answers to the songs that weren't guessed. Feel free to check them out and kick yourself for missing "Zero" by Smashing Pumpkins. ;-)
