Just something to do while feeling bored and sickly.

Album Cover Meme
Stolen from </b></a>kaladhwen


1 - Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop (or similar) to put it all together. Doesn't have to be snazzy.

5 - Post it and these instructions in your LJ and tag the friends you want to join in. (I'm not tagging anyone, I'm just bored.)



I know it said last four or five words, but really this one was too good not to use the whole thing.

And then there's this.

That album cover is awesome!!

1. Can you cook?
Yup. It's a matter of wanting to that always hangs me up. When I'm hungry, I need/want food now and don't have time to really cook much.

2. What was your dream growing up?
When I was really young I wanted to be a vet or run an animal shelter or something. When I was 12 I realized I wanted to be an actress. Still do.

3. What talent do you wish you had?
Flirting. I do not has it. (Mia still surprises me.)

4. Favorite place?
California or Florida. Or my hometown where I grew up. I miss it.

5. Favorite vegetable?
Hmm. Broccoli or sugarsnap peas.

6. What was the last book you read?
It's really sad that I can't remember. My textbooks, for sure. For personal reading, I think it was a Narnia book.

7. What zodiac sign are you?
Leo

8. Any Tattoos and/or Piercings?
My ears are pierced.

9. Worst Habit?
Time management. Flawed. Horribly. Takes me forever to leave my home but I'm not high maintenance or anything. I don't know what takes so long! And I suck at managing my time in general.

10. Do we know each other outside of LJ?
:( Outside of LJ yes, not in RL though.

11. What is your favorite sport?
Swimming. Martial arts.

12. Negative or Optimistic attitude?
Realistically optimistic.

13. What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
Talk about some fandoms! Maybe start to co-write another crazy holiday SW story!

14. Worst thing to ever happen to you?
My mom dying.

15. Tell me one weird fact about you:
Only one? Hm. I think I've discovered I have this weird compulsion about buying food even if I already have plenty.

16. Do you have any pets?
Not really. And our family dog was put down last year. :( There's a family cat but he's not really... yeah.

17. Do you know how to do the macarena?
Yup.

18. What time is it where you are now?
7:51 p.m.

19. Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
Freakin' scary!!

20. If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
My front teeth. Determined to get that done within the next month. Or so. I hate my nose, too.

21. Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?
Probably both. Try to talk both of us out of it and then do it anyway. Depends on what crime's being committed, too. ;)

22. What color eyes do you have?
Blue-gray.

23. Ever been arrested?
Nope.

24. Bottle or Draft?
Neither.

25. If you won $10,000 dollars today, what would you do with it?
Pay off some debt and invest the rest.

26. What kind of bubble gum do you prefer to chew?
Right now it's usually Trident. Juicy Fruit actually lasts longer before it gets to that nasty taste.

27. What 's your favorite bar to hang at?
Hahaha.

28. Do you believe in ghosts?
Sorta kinda?

29. Favorite thing to do in your spare time?
Roleplay.

30. Do you swear a lot?
Maybe a little bit, in my head, when I'm really angry.

31. Biggest pet peeve?
Inconsiderate people who don't think about how their actions affect others or their feelings.

32. In one word, how would you describe yourself?
ADD-prone?

33. Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?
Already did!

It's funny how the picture actually goes kinda with the quotation I got for the name of the album. And really, "Octanol" isn't a bad name for a band, lol.

I love our crazy holiday SW story . . . this past Christmas I unlocked and upped it for some holiday reading, but it didn't get much attention :(

I remember when all I read was textbooks and that was so horribly dreary . . . my last semester which was all practicum and no reading, I devoured like, 6 books in the first month. It felt glorious to read for enjoyment again!

I so get you on the time management thing, too. I'm so ridiculously low-maintenance it's not even funny, and I'm uber-organized at work, but organizing/time management in my life? Hah! Good luck!

Now I know how to get band name ideas, at least!

Awww. I still love it too. I still giggle too much whenever I read it.

But college reading has ruined my enjoyment reading! I had to slow down to "comprehend" the textbooks, and now I can't turn off this mind voice that reads everything aloud in my mind. It drives me INSANE, so I don't read anymore. :(

Haha! I'm the same way at work!! Soooo insanely organized at work, and in public areas of my apartment, but my room? Always a struggle.

Hello. I am reading your marvelous story, "Whispers" on seven_seasons and have come over to friend you. I also recommended your story on my LJ and plan to do the same on the CDS fic rec board. I will comment on the story there but want to rush through the posted chapters (selfish of me). You are a fabulously talented writer and I am delighted you have ventured into our fandom.

Kathleen
Don't know if you wish to archive but I highly recommend you post your story (and any other Buffyverse tales you have or create in the future...particularly Spike/Buffy centric) at Bloodshedverse, Elysian Fields and Spuffy Realm at least. The readers are wonderful on all those sites and the sites themselves contain some of the very best being written.

Hi! Thanks so much for your note and expect a friending in return! Thanks too for your recommendation and compliments - I'm totally thrilled about the response I'm getting to this story. This is my first posted story in the Buffyverse, though I'm not new at all to the fandom or to fanfiction. I can't tell you how great it is to feel inspired to write again.

I have Whispers already on Elysian Fields and just added the first chapter on Bloodshedverse, but I thank you for the suggestion and I'll certainly check out Spuffy Realm. I didn't know about that one.

Do you have any stories? If so, I'd like read them :)

Yes I have several at all those sites and others (and on my LJ). I need to have my muse behave because I am committed to writing for another community you might enjoy called seasonal_spuffy. That site runs a couple of times a year with authors or visual artists being assigned a "day" for their posts. There might still be openings should you wish to participate. I highly recommend the site.

I have recommended your story as I said I would and you will likely have more people pop in to read.

You really are a fine writer, polished and articulate, with a great insight into our characters.

Kathleen
