Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?

I wish I knew more about Star Trek! It's on my vast "To Watch" List.

"The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed."
1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them.

Your result for The Attachment Style Test...

The Exile

50% Anxiety Over Abandonment and 68% Avoidance Of Intimacy

You are uncomfortable getting close to others. You want emotionally close relationships, but you find it difficult to trust others completely. You feel that people don't fully understand you, and to be honest you're not certain you fully understnad yourself. You never wanted it to happen, but now you're an outcast and you're resigned to your fate. They think you're not good enough? Well, you figure, maybe that's true. You don't need them, anyway.



Fictional character with whom you might identify: Elphaba (Wicked), Smeagol/Gollum (The Lord of the Rings)

I tried to a real entry yesterday, and not just that fanmix. But yeeeeah... It obviously didn't happen that way. The mix was just so close to being done, I grit my teeth and just finished it. Then I needed a nap. :P Fanmixes = hard work. LOL!

I hope everyone who celebrates it had a good 4th (and if you don't, that you just had a good day in general). Laura was dogsitting for her parents up in Snohomish, so I went up there to just hang. And I did not get lost! Huzzah! XD I finally met her boyfriend Scott, I was like the last friend to do so. I thought maybe she was ashamed of me (not that I could blame her) LOL! But he is a very nice guy. Bought me a Coke. :) We watched a few episodes of Psych, which I had never seen. It was really good! If I didn't have so many other fandoms going on right now, I would probably get addicted. But I definitely could really get into it. ILU, Corbin Bernsen. Once it was darker outside, the three of us met up with a friend of Scott's at a park in Monroe and lit off a ton of fireworks. I don't really give a hoot about fireworks (if Laura hadn't called me earlier, I would've just been happy to stay in and watch movies), but Laura bought some really good ones.

There was a Percy/Luna fic posted for the percy_ficathon yesterday! Yay! Six Impossible Things (Before Breakfast). I really want to do a Percy/Luna fanmix now! I mean, I've wanted to for awhile, but I was planning on putting off (do it after the fifty other ones I have in my mind). But I may not be able to resist. I plan on doing AT LEAST one fanmix for International Femslash Day (July 19th). Like I was saying to danniisupernova, there is not enough femslash!love in the world of fanmixes. So there will be at least one (maybe two), along with some fic. I am thinking of doing something every day that week, leading up to the actual day. I just need to stop procrastinating.

LOL! I KNOW! Definitely one of my geekies crushes. XD Why does he have to be married?!?!

Sorry I'm not online. I've been off and on the phone for awhile, and I cannot be on the phone and do anything else. Like, I even have to pause iTunes. Seriously. I'll be like, "Mhmm...wait, what?" XD

P.S. Icon love! "Look at me, I'm Chandler! Could I be wearing any more clothes?!"

I have Lord of the Flies, Animal Farm, Hitchhiker's Guide, and Watership Down if you would like to borrow them. I also have Of Mice and Men and at least excerpts, if not the entirety, of A Christmas Carol, which I recommend. And I KNOW that I have 1984 somewhere. Scott gave it to me for my birthday once, saying "Look, the year you were born was so traumatic, they had to write a book about it."

Re: from susan
I have like 50 other books I am reading/need to read. BUT, once I clear through all that, I will definitely take you up on those. I have 1984 somewhere. I think I put it on the bookshelf in our living room, because it looks impressive. :P

They had a Hitchhiker's Guide reference in the last season of Stargate Atlantis. Even though I haven't read it yet, I was happy I still got it. LOL!

P.S. Yeah, I think that the Nostalgia Night will work for me that weekend. The 19th, right? I might be bad company (really tired from the midnight showing of The Dark Knight, and other such fangirl lame-alities), but I can definitely be there. :)

P.P.S. "Lame-alities"? I've been watching too much Almost Live! and their "Lame List" sketches.

Re: from susan
I was listening to a radio show about medicine (yeah, I was bored) and the host mentioned that most people don't know that you can diagnose diseases by looking at the fingernails, and I thought, "I do! Allison told me that white spots can mean arsinic poisoning!"

LOL! I wish I remembered where I learned that from. Probably Unsolved Mysteries. :P

I haven't met Laura's boyfriend, but...I'm less sociable than you Allee.
Allee: mcsheplady_lyca on July 14th, 2008 04:36 pm (UTC)
Well, yeah, I meant out of all her friends she sees on a semi-regular basis. Like Laurie saw her a month ago, and I don't think she's met him.
