For both my Grandfathers;

In memory of family and friends who have lost the battle with cancer; and in support of the ones who continue to conquer it! Post this on your LJ if you know someone who has or had cancer. 93% won't copy and paste this. Will you?

and on to the Bookshelves Meme )

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.

Interesting meme snatched from [ profile] sharpiefan. Tell me what's on your mp3 player, and I tell you who you are... kinda

You can learn a lot about someone by the music they listen to. So here is the game! Hit shuffle on your ipod or mp3 player and write down the first 26 songs. No cheating or skipping songs that are shameful. That is the fun!

On to lala )
But I had to stop at 20, by battery ran out...

You're the type of person who finds most mental tasks to be easy. You love to stretch your brain.

• Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.
• NO CAPTIONS!!! It must be like we're speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.
• They must ALREADY be on your hard drive - no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you've saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.
• You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don't want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like.

This was... intersting. It made me realise that I have 14GB of pics I took myself on my harddrive, but only 6MB downloaded images...

But fear not, I'm not going to bore you with my vacation pics... much. It's alternating my own/other pics.

not very artistic )

[ profile] rosinarowantree gave me five prompts...

and a while back I read a journal entry about how we only see small slices of each others personality, only the bits and pieces that make it into our journal entries... without seeing the whole person...

...and rosina managed to give me prompts that are such a HUGE part of my life, of who I am, that I'd need to rant about it for pages and pages to properly explain what these things are to me.

But I'm not eloquent, so I boiled everything down to a sentence or two.

King's German Legion

v Lossow should be in more books, and it's a shame he never made it into the movies

Terry Pratchett

a keen observer of human nature; any literate person should have read Good Omens, and at least one watch/witches novel each... and Pyramids... and Reaper Man... and Interesting Times... and Small Gods... and...


15 years of competitive swimming and 15 years of scuba diving

Heavy Metal

of University Graduates with academic degrees (doctors, phd's and the like) a higher percentage listens to Heavy Metal than to any other kind of music. I am in the Sweden Death Camp, myself


got me used to having a different point of view than 90% of the people I talk to. More access to facts, or a different way to process the available info, I guess. Also: Headology, yes I do.

from Sharpiefan:
You Are a Calculator
No matter what someone tells you, you're likely to focus on facts and data.
You're a highly analytic person. You are only concerned with what you can know for sure.

You look at situations objectively, and you have no problem approaching problems from multiple angles.
You would make a good analyst or investment banker. You are confident enough to make tough calls and hard decisions.
