icewolf: snowy wolf (I speak in Latin because...)
Okay, so I belong to this community called [ profile] brigits_flame. It's a nice writer's community which has a monthly contest that I haven't gotten my act together enough to participate in yet. Every day there's a "chatter" post which gives general updates for the day and also has little things that make you go hmm. Not fully blown writers' prompts, but something to get the old juices flowing.

Today's made me think of my friends list in particular. Here it is, as written by [ profile] tigerstriped86:

I really like the idea of Nerdy Personal Ads. It tailors itself to the notion that not only are nerds surprisingly social creatures, but that we share a lot of the same habits. When I finished hearing his list, I thought about making a list all my own. And I kind of came up with what I wanted.

Original Blue Power Rangers seeks Yellow or Red ranger to discuss favorite Sondheim songs, break out into classic Disney tunes, and debate the merits of the Whedonverse. Green Rangers and dessert sharers need not apply.

I think that pretty much sums up a lot about me, but it leaves a little bit to be desired. I think variety is great in a relationship, so here are a couple of other things to know about me:

-Family Guy is a guilty pleasure
-I enjoy a good game of Clue
-The first book I bought for myself in college was a Poe anthology
-I like dogs
-I liked the movie “The Truth About Cats and Dogs”
-I love performing Dreamgirls at karaoke
-I watch Friends reruns when they are on
-I sing in a church choir
-Anthony Bourdain on Deadliest Catch would be the most awesome show ever!
-The music in Glee makes me happy

So that's my ad and a list of things that you'd probably learn about me on the first date. What about you? Even if you're in a relationship, think about this as a fun exercise in learning about who you think you are! Give it a try!
What would your nerdy personal ad say?

The italics are mine, because I think that the original ad gets lost in the list of other stuff.

I'm still working on mine, but what would your nerdy personal ad say? And make it an actual ad, not just a list!

Okay, so [ profile] theferrett posted this on his LJ today:

Yesterday, my friends list was rife with tragedy: breakups, financial heartache, cybercrime, serious medical issues, dying relatives, serious differences in established relationships, fights with lovers, surgical complications, and of course the inevitable demon ponies.

This LJ needs a smudge ceremony. So come on in close, smell the sage, get a little ash on your face, and to help dispell the demons, post something awesome and wonderful about your life. I will use the little-known CSS property "border: 1px magic joyful" to set this HTML so that you may only discuss nice things. There will be no disclaimers about how you've lived underneath a sewer ever since you lost your job but yesterday you found a wet muckrag that might serve as a dress; no, for the smudge ceremony to work, you must only post a thing of purest joy.

So, it occurs to me that my own Friends List is experiencing its own troubles. So I'm doing it, too. I'll even go first. And it's not even Herself-related.

I am wearing purple argyle underwear. This puts an extra, silly spring in my step for some reason.

Who's next?

First, because my friend [ profile] tx_cronopio, asked, here is a Friday Meaningless Poll (TM).

[Poll #1233472]

Secondly, because it's Friday, and Rose asked for them weeks ago, here are some baby pictures!

Have a happy baby! )

P.S., dragons:

Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

The lovely and brilliant [personal profile] margoeve is doing a survey. Here it is! I'd do it, but I don't have a "workplace" as such these days. Unless you're feeling chatty, it only ought to take about 10 minutes.

[ profile] commodorified, I'm looking at you...

"If there is someone on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal."
