If your life was a movie, what would the soundtrack be?

Open your music library (iTunes or whatever), put it on shuffle and press play. For every question, type the song that's playing. When you go to a new question, press the next button. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool and choose songs to fit with the setting.

Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] angelskuuipo:
* With a twist. Since I have both paper and audio books in rotation, I'm going to list both.

Book I just finished:

Physical: I've been reading my current book since December, but the last physical book I read was Kept Tears by Jana Denardo. I won the book from Goodreads and this is the review that I left for it: I very much enjoyed meeting Aaron, a man who lost an arm and suffered other injuries in Afghanistan and is struggling to overcome his PTSD while going to grad school, and decides to approach a gorgeous man at a Steampunk event. While Rhys is a little too good to be true, we learn that he has learned patience in his long, fae, life. He's exactly what Arron needs, even if his baggage is not. The secondary characters were all wonderfully supporting in the roles they had to play. Everyone needs a Corrine in their life.

Audio: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. A story we can all relate to. A young introverted fanfiction writer starts college and has to come to terms with how her life is changing and how her writing is changing. And how fanfiction is viewed by those outside the community. I will admit that I went in search of fanfiction for this story when I finished it. This is also one of the few books I've listened to as an audiobook that I am greatly tempted to get a hard copy of so I can re-experience it, in a whole new way.

Book I'm currently reading:

Physical: The Constant Princess by Phillipa Gregory. The story of Katherine of Aragon before and after she married King Henry VIII.

Audio: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. I am completely engrossed in this mystery. I think I'll be done with it this weekend, depending on how much time I spend in my car.

Book I plan to read next:
Physical: Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1) by Marissa Meyer. This is a futuristic Cinderella retelling that I picked up when I visited [livejournal.com profile] angelskuuipo.

Audio: Not My Father's Son: A Memoir by Alan Cumming. What theatre geek doesn't love Alan Cumming? Looking forward to hearing him read his memoir.

My computer is having low disc issues. I finally set up my new 1TB external hard drive on Sunday, and have slowly been transferring all of my music and image files to just live on the external drive. Yesterday it said I had 10GB free again, then today it was back to just a couple hundred MB. WTF? I couldn't even crop an image in Photoshop tonight. Last night I did a Defrag and I've run the Disk Cleanup several times.

Do I need to upgrade my computer's internal memory too? It currently has an 80GB hard drive. Or is this not a hard drive issue? Is there some other trick I don't know about that will get it to run better?

This brings me to an announcement...

I won't be closing nominations/opening voting at the SunnyD Awards until Saturday, April 18th. So if there are any stories, authors, betas or websites you'd still like to nominate, now is your chance!

If someone happens to think my recent Willow and Angel and/or Oz and Angel stories deserved a nomination, I'd give you a cookie for nominating it/them.

Part of being on Livejournal [or IJ] is inevitably gaining a number of LJ buddies. Unfortunately, as time wears on, it's easy to forget where all of them came from. Post this in your journal and have your friends respond with how they recall first 'meeting' you.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

The Northeast
North Central
The South
The Midland
The West
What American accent do you have?

Although I did drink soda, not pop, growing up.

I think it was the last question that sealed the deal for me: When you say "bag" does it rhyme with "vague"? YES!

Got this from [livejournal.com profile] cornerofmadness. This is different. YOU fill in the blanks about ME. But first post a blank one to your LJ so we can return the favor to you. Be honest --they're really FUNNY to get back.

Come on, you know you wanna do it. )

Explain your LiveJournal name and its meaning. When you're done, tag as many people as there are letters in your name.

The short answer is that I picked my LJ name, dragonydreams, because that's what my fanfic email address ID is and I wanted to be consistant.

The longer answer... )

I'm not tagging anyone because I have 13 letters in my LJ name and I can't think of that many people to do this. Either I already know why you chose your name or I don't think you'll answer. So do it if you want, no pressure from me.

Ground rules: The first player of this "game" starts with the topic "Five Weird Habits of Yourself" and the people who get tagged need to then write a LJ entry about their five quirky little habits as well as state the rules of this game clearly. In the end, you need to list the next five people who you want to tag.

1 - I get to work at least half an hour every day so that I can have coffee and breakfast while checking my Yahoo accounts (2 of them at any rate). They have free coffee and milk in the "kitchen" so I just keep a box of cereal - or oatmeal - in my desk drawer.

2 - I get crabby when my schedule is upset (at work). If something isn't ready on time, it throws me off and I find myself not knowing what to do - so I usually check my email and/or LJ.

3 - I put off going to the laundromat for as long as possible, despite the fact that it's the only time I really read books anymore.

4 - I won't eat fish because I can always picture them all scaly and staring at me, but I have no problem eating meat or poultry. I blame it on being dragged to the fish market when I was a kid and seeing the fish being sold with their heads still attached. ::shivers::

5 - I'm sure I have other quirky habits, but I can't think of anything now.

I'm also not tagging anyone. Do this if you want to, or not.

New icon!

See the pretty icon with this post? *points at icon* [livejournal.com profile] mara_sho made it for me because I love that line of Mal's (in Serenity) so much.

This icon also brings me up to 100 total Userpics. I had been trying not to be a total glutton and keep it around 95, but this icon, and the holidays, have bumped me up to the maximum.

Which brings me to... the icon meme (gacked from [livejournal.com profile] just_feen): (I really wasn't going to do this, but it just ties in with my post so well.)

Take a look at my icons.

Comment with the following:

1.] One that makes you automatically think of me.
2.] One that you think I should use more often.
3.] One that you don't get/needs more explanation/you have no idea why the hell I have it.
4.] When you comment, use your favourite icon of yours and tell me why you love it!
5.] Your favourite icon that I currently have.
