Do you get crotchety and gnash your false teeth at all those memes that ask, “Have you ever kissed someone?” “Do you have a fake ID?”

Do you want to swing your zimmer frame when you have to try to make a sensible response to, “Do the other girls ping your bra strap in PE class”? This meme is for you. Feel free to answer if you’re under 30 but past spin-the-bottle, obviously.

I quite enjoyed this one! )

1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload, if you feel like it) 5 songs that start with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

[livejournal.com profile] hikariblue gave me Y, which was a little bit tough!

1. Yorimichi - Kanjani8. K8 have such awesome B-sides. And they did a band session version of this song live at the last show at Nagano last year, which I feel privileged to have seen.

2. You've Really Got a Hold on Me - The Beatles. I know it's not their song, but I adore their version from Live at the BBC. Really touches me.

3. You Don't Know What Love Is (You Just Do As Your Told) - White Stripes. This song reminds me of being on holiday in Wiltshire with mother! And also of [livejournal.com profile] zedan - I was once singing the chorus at the top of my voice as I went past his room, and after I sang "You just do what you're told", he said "*I* don't" in a very dry sort of way. It made me LOL a lot. XD

4. You and Me Versus the World - Space. If me and [livejournal.com profile] davechan have a song, this might be it - not cos we're outlaws or anything, lol, but I have a memory of walking down the street singing it together at like 6am in bright sunshine after we'd stayed up all night talking about jam-making with [livejournal.com profile] nichadaemus. These are my university memories!

5. You Never Can Tell - Chuck Berry. I can't remember if I knew this song before I saw Pulp Fiction or not, but I wish I had.

And a bonus to wreck all that cred: Yes Sir, I Can Boogie - Baccara. And another to take me back to high school: You Don't Know Me - Armand van Helden.

That became easier once I remembered a lot of songs that begin with "you". ;) I could've gone for a few more oldies too in the end!

Another meme down, several more to do... lol.

Tagged by [livejournal.com profile] almighty_frog! :D Write about five weird/quirky habits you have, then tag five more people to do the same.

Me, weird/quirky? Hmm... )

...They weren't especially exciting or unusual, but there you go. I'm sure I could think of some weirder ones if I tried... You've probably all already done this, but I tag:

Saw March of the Penguins today, which was probably not the most exciting film ever, but man those bay penguins were cute. *_* The Showroom were giving out free Penguins too. :9 Mmm, tastes like chicken chocolate.

Also had our house Christmas on Friday, which I for one enjoyed a great deal! I thought everything turned out really as well as I could have hoped, and I can't ask for more than that! ^__^ I was proud of how all the food turned out, if I say so myself, and hey, it's what I think that counts, right? I've also bought a lot of Christmas pressies recently, and I must say a huge thank you to [livejournal.com profile] zalia for the present! :D :D :D I've been very lucky this year, but also very behind, so I think there's a lot of people I meant to get/do things for and haven't yet. >.<;; New Year cards/presents OK with everyone? ^^;;

Back to work tomorrow too. *shudder*

Crack quiz nabbed from Alsie... )

I really only wanted to do it to say I've had sex in a tent.

Was going to do that favourite characters meme, but realised it was a) too easy and b) I usually have a lot of favourite characters anyway.

Argh lesson! @_@ Might go somewhere where there's no internet. It's a good excuse to go to a coffee shop, anyway... is there anywhere that does cheap refills? I dunno if the Interval still does, and their mochas are a bit weird, anyway. *cafegeek*

Oo, Densha Otoko alternate ending! With an extra half hour of footage! Er, yay. ^^;;

Meme from t3h robotic one... )

Enjoyed that one. By and large, fairly accurate too, apart from maybe the image thing. I only worry about what people I care about think, lol - strangers can go jump. Though maybe I'm flattering myself with the "people like to talk to you cos you're fun" cos they blatantly don't. XD Also I don't flirt. OK, so maybe not so accurate after all. ^^' But at least that meme doesn't make me sound like a complete loser like that colour one did. -_-

Woah, Shishido's song is actually *good*! o.O It has real instruments and everything! First Sengoku, then Sanada, now Shishido - what's with the sudden increase in quality of PoT music? *hides*

Also, one more day to rescue [livejournal.com profile] 30_kisses. Will I do it? Who knows?!

Now to maybe attempt that haircut, for real this time. ^^'

[livejournal.com profile] robojellyfish, do you want a banana flavour condom for your collection? It's in a rather fetching yellow wrapper. I got it in a random bag that was thrust at me at Freshers' Fair yesterday. It contained a lot of useful things obviously aimed at people living away from home for the first time (which I'm sure I look like *dodders*), such as a lolly, a leaflet about sexual health, a booklet about eating fruit and a teabag, along with the aforementioned. The best thing, though, was a business-sized card bearing the legend "Let's be clear about chlamydia" (spelt that right first time! *proud*) which caused me great hilarity.

[livejournal.com profile] ninjaiguana was talking the other day about a gay character he's made for Five Rings. If I'm not recalling incorrectly, he's called Sanada. Yes, I'm easily amused, what you gonna do.

[livejournal.com profile] avatar1983 is back! So hello to loud music again. ;)

Political meme. I'm not surprised. )
diamondlife: (Presents - xinyu)
Ooooii, RP-types! Where are you all? I'm feeling spammy, but it's no fun alone. :]

Also, this is the greatest icon ever. :9 Yarr! Everyone loves Yukimura's booty.

Nabbed this meme from [livejournal.com profile] dilettantka, amongst others...

Ten of my interests EXPLAINED! )

Oh, another thrilling day in my life. ^^;; Watched ep 49 of KKM, finally! I enjoyed it, but I still feel just a tiny bit uneasy when I think of it deviating from the novels. I want to know what's "really" happening! :/

Watched 11 and 12 of Legend of Duo, too - like [livejournal.com profile] zerotwofan said, it's a funny little series, but I love the 5-minute format - for a start, it fits nicely with my attention span, lol, but I also find it very interesting. Seems like such a different style to a normal series. Wonder where it's going to go from here... It'd be a nice bit of filler for the anime society too, if you need five minutes filled in anywhere! ;)

Even though I didn't really care for Haru o Daiteita, I still dl'ed the movie trailer, and it looked pretty good! The art's still a bit ugly, but somehow the story appealed. I liked the historical-epic feel, though I suspect it may be somewhat melodramatic. ^^' I'll see when it comes out.

Now I think I'll go any work on my [livejournal.com profile] top_cagnotte fic, being as how I actually have an idea of what the hell to do with it. ^^' Not many people seemed to care for schoolgirl Niou. What's that about?!
