"They distrust March and declare it to be the most perilous time of the year. These are the stubborn individuals who continue to wear woolen coats on the finest of days, who insist it is impossible to tell the difference between a carpet of snowdrops and a stretch of ice in this slippery season, even with twenty-twenty vision. Such people cannot be convinced that lions will ever turn into lambs. In their opinion, anyone born in March is sure to possess curios traits that mirror the fickle season, hot one minute, cold the next. Unreliable is March's middle name, no one could deny that." --Alice Hoffman, The Probable Future (pg. 4)

Midnight. It can be either a time of sleep, or a time of partying.

if i were a planet, i would be:
Jupiter.

if i were a sea animal, i would be:
I'm a manatee!
-Yeah, whatever, sea cow.

if i were a direction, i would be:
North. Native Americans associated it with thought and wisdom. In Feng Shui it is associated with adaptability. It's associated with the sign of Aquarius, which I am most definitely am. Plus, I am over half-Nordic descent. Yeah I thought about this one a lot, wanna fight about it?

a bookshelf

if i were a sin, i would be:
Definitely sloth.

if i were a historical figure, i would be:
Oscar Wilde

if i were a liquid, i would be:
Champagne. I've been told I can be quite bubbly.

if i were a stone, i would be:
Maybe a tiger's eye. It's a very mental stone, and I tend to live in my own head. Or a pearl. Only because I am very drawn to them, and when you are considering personal stones, instinctual feelings can be important. And I like that they are known for being related to tears. Tears can be either happy or sad.

A maple tree

A sparrow

A cookie cutter. Yes, kitchen utensils count as tools

Candytuft

if i were a kind of weather, i would be:
Powder snow. I can be cold, but fun. ^_^

if i were a mythical creature, i would be:
A fairy or imp. "Dammit, Puck! This time you've gone too far!"

if i were a musical instrument, i would be:
A saxophone.

if i were an animal, i would be:
A house cat. 'Cause I like to lie around all day. :P

Green or yellow

if i were a vegetable, i would be:
An onion? I dunno, I just like onions. :P

Bill Waterson. Okay, so he wrote comics. But Calvin & Hobbes fucking pwns, y'all!

if i were a place, i would be:
St. Petersburg. Or Amsterdamn.

if i were a religion, i would be:
Atheism or some form of paganism (which I like because I think spirituality and scientific are not necessarily mutually exclusive in it).

if i were a number, i would be:
4



Okay, and time for part 2 of the Top 5 Meme!

polaris_86 gave me:
Most Entertaining Books
- Little Altars Everywhere by Rebecca Wells. It's part of the series that is most well known for Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. While that one is my favorite, LAE probably has the most humorous stories.

- Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. It's kind of playing off of the movie The Omen, with there being an Antichrist. But Crowley and Aziraphale are the kinds of people I would want to meet at a cocktail party.

- The Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling. Definitely the one that kept me most entertained.

- Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I read it in about a week. I would seriously speed home (faster than usual I mean ^_^) from work just to get to that book!

- Carolina Moon by Nora Roberts. I admit, I LOOOOVE Nora Roberts. Even though I am definitely not as interested in romance novels as I used to be, I still love Nora. This was the first one of hers that I ever read.

I also mentioned that a lot of my favorite books aren't necessarily 'entertaining', so here's a list of books that could be considered a little dark.

Well, okay Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman isn't necessarily dark, only a couple of her books really are dark. But I don't know, wouldn't say entertaining either. :P

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. Well, she based a lot of it on herself, and she had problems with depression...

Prozac Nation by Elizabeth Wurtzel, it's her memoir about her struggles with depression.

The Virgin Suicides... I think it says it all in the title. LOL!

She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb. Well, it's a beautiful book. I have a hard time believing it was written by a man. Lamb writes really well from a female voice. It's about a girl dealing with all sorts of problem throughout her life. Her parents splitting up, her mom's death, being raped, dealing with those problems with food, gaining weight... I really recommend this book though. You'll cry, but it is worth it.

The Perks of Being A Wallflower. It has its funny moments. But a lot of other stuff too. The story is told through the letters of Charlie to a person he doesn't know. It goes through Charlie's first year of high school.

A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb. Not necessarily dark, but I definitely cried my eyes out at the end.

And I forgot to mention this earlier, but White Oleander by Janet Fitch must be included on the list. I love this so much that in the unlikely event that I ever have a daughter, I am going to name her 'Astrid' after the main character.

And jedipanchan gave me:
Most Under-appreciated Movies
- Angus. I still can't believe this hasn't been released on DVD. I mean it's a funny, but totally honest look at high school. It has a great soundtrack, including tons of Green Day back when they were still kind of raw (in a good way).

- The Mirror Has Two Faces. Okay, I think in order to be listed as a female on your driver's license, you need to see this movie. Even if you don't like Barbara Streisand. Jeff Bridges is cluelessly sexy, you want to smack him and then nuzzle him. This is the movie I put on whenever I need a pick up and there is no liquor in the house.

- Death to Smoochy</i>. Ed Norton, Catherine Keener, John Stewart, Robin Williams, Danny Devito....so much effing talent! And if you like dark comedies (or just phallic-shaped cookies), ya need to see it.

- Back to Beach. Frankie and Annette poking fun at the genre that made them stars. Plus, it teaches us that all of life's problems can be solved by peanut butter, pajama parties, and dancing the Jamaica ska on the beach. Plus, it's why I randomly say "He's battering down the door with someone's head?!" at random moments.

- Sin City. I consider this underrated mainly because their should've been at least a couple of Oscar nods for cinematography, costumes, or for some acting in supporting roles.


Hmmm...should I make some hocho? I think Jacomo (my stomach) wants some cocoa to go with the snow. ^_^

Woot! I enjoyed reading your answers :) Sloths FTW haha :P

And I almost picked Copper for the element one. Not sure why, exactly *shrug*

Hee hee! Sloths rule! XD Like I said, I'd be a house cat 'cause lying around pleases me. XDDDD

I just really like copper! My dream kitchen would be copper and brick tones. I know, very weirdly Gryffindor of me. LOL!

Allee: sylar3somelady_lyca on April 1st, 2008 06:53 am (UTC)
I AM amazed! =D I drew something back! Well, it's more just writing. But there are pretty colors! LOL!
Pan: Claire Heroesjedipanchan on April 2nd, 2008 04:50 am (UTC)
Sweeeet! I am seriously missing that show, especially now that LOST is on a break. I need to get more people into Heroes, so many are missing out on the amazingness! We need season 2 on dvd ASAP!! :D
Allee: HRGBAMFlady_lyca on April 2nd, 2008 05:16 pm (UTC)
I had a Heroes dream this morning! Well, kinda... I don't remember all the details. But the Bennets, and myself, were driving around in an RV... And we were vigilantes or something. Totally weird, I know. I killed this one guy (don't remember why, but I remember I had a good reason), and they came and got me, and we avoided the police, 'cause we were goooood.
Pan: Claire Heroesjedipanchan on April 3rd, 2008 03:39 am (UTC)
Nice! Did you have any super powers?? Although HRG has no powers and still kicks ass, heh heh. :P

I need to re-watch season 1 soon, methinks.
Allee: stoned!hirolady_lyca on April 3rd, 2008 05:35 am (UTC)
I think I did... But I don't remember. Well, I killed a guy. So I know I at least had mad skillz. XD
