  1. Grab the nearest book.
  2. Open the book to page 123.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
  5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
  6. Tag five people.

The closest book that's not Kevin's calculus book:


"I am the less surprised at what has happened," replied Sir William, "for her superior mastery of the deadly arts and high breeding are known throughout the courts of Europe."

Scarcely anything was talked of the whole day or next morning but their visit to Rosings. Mr. Collins was carefully instructing them in what they were to expect, that the sight of such rooms, so many servants, a personal guard of five-and-twenty ninjas, and so splendid a dinner, might not wholly overpower them.

When the ladies were separating for the toilette, he said to Elizabeth:



From Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which I have yet to actually read through because despite zombies and ninjas, it does a good job of reminding me why I never made it past a few pages of Pride and Prejudice in the first place. Did yield a pretty kick-ass excerpt though :D

Heck, let's try this.


"The first 10 people to comment on this post get to request a sketch of a subject/character of their choosing from me. Post all fandoms you’re willing to draw for."


Fandoms I'll draw for: Zelda, Sailor Moon (anime/manga/live action), Harry Potter, Pokemon ('mons only, no people), Okami, Smash Bros., Soul Calibur II (...maybe?). You can also try suggesting any other anime/cartoon/game series and see if I find it interesting enough. (Though just to be clear, that's more of a "oh yeah how did I forget that one?" thing rather than "draw me anything!" so don't rely on it.)

Disclaimer: No guarantees on how long these'll take to draw. ^^;; I'm not a good doodler

Am I even going to get 10 people...?

I agree with the analysis, but I dunno about the creature. (With a name like Aerodon you'd think it'd be a bird.) See if you can make it better! :3

I am nerdier than 65% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

I am ashamed.

From my computer networking textbook:

We would like to be able to give you a one-sentence definition of the Internet, a definition that you can take home and share with your family and friends. Alas, the Internet is very complex and ever changing...

But what will my family and friends do without Distilled Essence of Internet? ::cry::

Anyway, here's a bit o' progress. Despite appearances that I'm getting closer to finishing the shading, there's still a lot of costuming and background details that aren't even drawn in yet. Look for the finished product around, oh, end of March ^^;;

Ganked from [ profile] ctrl_a who drew me this, and [ profile] erichowens who drew me this.

1.Comment here and I'll pick LJ interest(s) and draw a picture using the almighty MS Paint.

2. You have no say in what I draw for you, or in how much it will suck!

(Don't expect masterpieces from me just because I'm an artist! My drawings really suck when I'm not trying. ;D)

3. Put this in your journal along with the pictures other people have drawn for you.

(But don't let it stop you from asking even if you don't want to draw. ;))

Edit: [ profile] ajoreilly drew me this which doesn't look at all familiar. ;)

You're a Fluff writer!

What kind of writer are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

Teehee. No doubt, but is there really nothing more enjoyable than good fluff? Don't think I've yet seen a fluff of the quality that rivals the best epic-sized stories I've read. If you have, please point me. =P

Of course, most of the time I'm no writer at all. But I have been making little bits of progress lately! ::eyes txt files in the corner of My Documents::

Everyone who reads this:

Ask me three questions. Anything. I promise I will answer.

Well, actually I can't promise I'll answer anything, but if I won't then I promise I'll give a good (and hopefully witty) answer as to why not.

I'll probably put this up on the About page for my website later. Save me some explanatorial time =)

I think I'm coming down with allergies again. I've never been significantly allergic to anything in my life, but upon coming down to LA last year I had itchy eyes that made me sneeze a lot during the winter months. Winter months, but more like spring weather. Whatever. XP

Ganked from Elwen: The ultimate Nerd Test. I got 54.76190476190476% - dangerously nerdy ;) You'll have to work hard for the score, though.
