Because what else do you do at 7am when you haven't slept yet but have run out of things to clean?

Onwards to questions! )

A meme!

If I haven't responded to a comment, it's because I haven't responded to it yet, not because it's wrong. So don't assume that because an unanswered comment has your guess that your guess must be wrong! :)

World Book Day is coming up on April 23rd. I'm not sure why this meme is going around now, two months in advance, but I'm down with it anyway. Basically it is an opportunity to me to be all "BOOK PR0NS!!!" at you, and any excuse to do that is awesome.

The book I am currently reading: Cat Valente ([ profile] yuki_onna)'s Habitation of the Blessed, though I have had to pause to mutilate the book with scissors. I really really really hate the deckle edge on it, and it is making turning the pages annoying, so while I appreciate the stylistic choice to use it, I am still painstakingly cutting the edge off every page. (YEAH, YEAH, LAUGH AT ME ALL YOU WANT. I really am that fucking neurotic.) Once I am done that, I will resume reading it.

The books I am currently writing: Hahaha. Haha. Ha.

The book I love most: I refuse to answer this on the grounds that it is a dumb question. I am not aware of anybody who really geeks out over books who has a One True Favourite, and I hate this question more than any other question I have ever been asked in my life. (Other stupid questions: "What is your favourite song?" and "What is your favourite food item?" ASK SMARTER.) But if somebody wants me to talk about some of the books I love and why -- apart from the ones in this post, obviously -- then just ask. I can do that.

The last book I received as a gift: Mris ([ profile] mrissa) sent me Paolo Bacigalupi's The Windup Girl and a De Lint novel that I didn't own my own copy of. Until now. :D :D

The last book I gave as a gift: Just last night, I sent Emily ([ profile] skycornerless) a copy of Jo Walton ([ profile] papersky)'s Among Others. Before that, I think it was the Christmas present books I gave to Rose ([ profile] unintendedmuse), which were the two Cherie Priest 'Clockwork Century' novels that are currently in print and Juliet Marillier's Daughter of the Forest and at least one other book that I forget now because I suck. (I also gave my brother my first three 'The Dresden Files' books by Jim Butcher just last week, but since my brother and I treat our libraries as interchangeable, it doesn't really count. I currently have Elizabeth Bear's All the Windwracked Stars on my shelf, for instance, and have since mid-January, even though I got it for him as part of his Christmas present, because he said he had too much other stuff on his list first and wouldn't get around to it for awhile, so I yoinked it back.)

The nearest book on my desk: China Miéville's Un Lun Dun, which I have been carrying around in my purse all week but haven't actually had a chance to start on yet.

And a question I am adding:

What is the most recent book you bought for yourself: The most recent book purchase I made for me was four copies of Emma Bull ([ profile] coffeeem)'s Finder. Yes, four. Two hardcover with the pretty Richard Bober illustration, and two paperback (one of which is also with the Richard Bober art, and is signed by Emma inside). WHAT? Don't give me that look. It's out of print and I found some at a local used bookstore for a great price and I know I'll wind up sending some to people as gifts, so I figured I should stock up while I had the chance, yeah? In fact, three of them already have people they're meant to go to... So I guess actually I wasn't really buying them for myself. Uhhhh. Okay, I know! I pre-ordered Cat Valente's Deathless, because I read the excerpt up on Tor and loved it.
moiread: (GEEK • talk nerdy to me.)
Inspired by TK ([ profile] lokabrenna), I have for you a meme. What is your computer named? What about your peripherals, workgroups, etc?

My workgroup is Valhalla. My router is Bifrost. My wonderful shiny desktop computer is Freyja. My old clunky, churning laptop (the one that, against all odds, completely refuses to die, even after the adapter socket came loose inside the laptop itself so by all rights it shouldn't even be able to recharge anymore, and now it lives in my parents' basement in "my" room, which never even sees light most days) is Hel. My awesome mighty little internet tablet was Valkyrie, before it died. My external hard drive is Mimir. My mp3 player is Bragi.

If I do someday purchase a beautiful high-powered HP Envy laptop, it will be Freyr. I'm not sure what I'd name a netbook, if I got one of those instead, though it might be Valkyrie again. That would be appropriate. And soon I'll be switching to using my phone as my primary mp3 player, at which point I will have to name my phone. (Suggestions? I can't think of a Norse deity or lesser entity that involves both music and communication. Not off the top of my head, anyway.)

I... actually never named my mouse or keyboard or monitor or anything, and my USB keys are named by function -- School, Work, Personal, etc. Same with my hard-drives, which are Programs, Muzzak, Personal, and Design. Which is horribly laaaaaame and now I feel like they all need good names too.

YOUR TURN. Feel free to comment and/or repost.
moiread: (bookish • liv t.)
I've made voice posts here before, and I Skype with a bunch of you on a regular basis, so I doubt my voice is anything new to you. But since I posted it over on IJ, I figure I should repost it here just in case anyone's feeling silly:
We all have different voices and accents and it's always fun to hear what other people sound like. Comment with something you want me to say, a question you want me to answer, a song you want me to sing, and I'll make a voice post/upload it/get around it fucking somehow in the next couple of days for you to hear. It can be anything -- serious, goofy, or something you know will make my accent come out.

For the record, I don't think being able to answer these is really the best standard for whether or not you know me, so it should really be called something like The "Can You Answer Questions About Me?" Meme, but alas, I do not make it up. (Only altered a few tiny things that annoyed me...)

Here's how it works! The questions are listed below, and they are all being asked about me. The numbers next to them are their point value, and I assume they are assigned based on difficulty. Everyone else is screening comments, but I'm not going to. Instead, I want anyone who answers to preface their comment with <font color="white" style="background-color: white"> (and then end it with </font> if they really want to be correct, but you don't have to!) so that, once everybody's done answering, they can go read each others' answers by highlighting them and have a good laugh at my expense! :)

PS: If you go check my About Me page for my middle name, you are a sad, sad cheater and I am ashamed of you.

A few silly, simple questions. )

If you want to, you can totally ask me things on Formspring:

That meme thing:
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. ♥ ♥ ♥

Pretty much all of you could repost it, since you all know me. But I'm sure you've also all had loved ones whose cancer experience was much harder and more harrowing than mine. My heart goes out to you all.
moiread: (hearts! • stock.)
I love you.

Yes, you! You reading this!

I love you.

Everybody is doing this meme but nobody seems to be following through on the reciprocal "I'll comment back" part. Instead of pouting about it, though, I figure I'll just post it myself and fish for 'em that way. ;)

Here it is:
Comment to this post and give me 5 subjects/things you associate with me, and I'll comment back with 5 subjects/things that I associate with you! Then I will edit this post obsessively and elaborate on the subjects given.

Your things can be RL things or RP things; either one is fine with me, though I admit I'd prefer less of the "I associate you with X canon character that you play all the time" RP variety since that's something I probably know already, whereas some of the other kinds of associations I might not, and those are the ones I'm curious to hear! I'll keep going as long as my energy levels allow, though I might save replying back with 5 things about YOU for tomorrow. :3

moiread: (hmm! • kate n.)
Stealing Julie's idea:

#1: Comment here and I'll reply to you to tell you which icon(s) of yours I associate with you. Once I reply, please repost this in your own journal.

#2: Comment and I'll make you an icon of something that reminds me of you. You have absolutely no say in what I make! If you do partake in it, please put this in your LJ, so I can do the same to you.

So, in other words, comment here and I'll reply with both an icon of yours and one of my making! But you don't actually have to do the meme yourself unless you actually want to, because otherwise that would be a bit dumb. Also: I will sincerely try to do everyone who comments, but if there are a lot of you and I run out of steam, please forgive me. I am still le sick!

EDIT: Have stopped to sleep and not feel well. But please keep commenting! I'm really enjoying this, and I'll do yours tomorrow once I'm not so out of it.

EDIT2: Yes, you may use these icons. Any of them. Even if they were in reply to somebody else. I believe in spreading the love, not limiting it!
