Longing for what used to be, Still it's hard, hard to see, Fragile lives, shattered dreams  
I'm sooo hungry! I should have gone to Starbucks this morning. I had time, but...Okay, I know what you're gonna say ("You're sick"), but another car was really pissing me off. On one road, he was cutting in and out of different lanes. Oh you're one car ahead, BFD!!! Then, he took a right to go on a background to avoid a busy light. As I hoped, I caught up with him at the intersection that connects the two roads. And HA HA! I got in front of him! Suck on that, tail-gating douchebag! I had to stay in front of him as long as I could, so I took a left at a light to go to work, rather than straight to Starbucks. Yeah, I am just that twisted.



You scored as Rogue. Rogue is a strong but tragic personality. She loves Gambit. Because of her mutant powers, she cannot touch anyone without hurting them. Therefore, she longs for human contact. However, this southern gal's strong personality has allowed her to deal with this. Powers: Absorbs lifeforce and powers by touch, Super strength, and flight

For this week, choose a character. It doesn't have to be your favorite or least favorite, just whoever pops into your head :D
Because of the recent discussion about him, I chose Percy Weasley! The Jan Brady of the Weasley Clan!
1. What are your three favorite moments for that character?
- When he was the only one in CoS to notice something was amiss with Ginny.
- Although I do feel kinda bad for him; when he is the butt of Fred and George's jokes, it's pretty amusing.
- I may not agree with his opinions; but to stand up for his heartfelt convictions, even at the expense of being a black sheep of his family...that takes guts. I have, and I am sure many of you have as well, pondered on how Percy might have been placed in Slytherin, much like Harry. It is my opinion that he probably asked the Sorting Hat to place him Gryffindor in order to please the rest of the Weasleys. I can't help but imagine a young Percy, already feeling like an outcast from the rest of his family, just wanting to be accepted. Not that I think any of the Weasleys intended for Percy to feel this way; but in a house of seven children, it would be easy to feel slighted in some way.
2. What’s your least favorite moment? Whenever he is called "Weatherby". I feel so bad for him! It's like he can't get respect anywhere!
3. What’s your favorite quote by that character? "Well, er, if you must know, er Ginny, er, walked in on me the other day when I was - well never mind - the point is, she spoted something and I, um, I asked her not to mention it to anybody. I must say I did think she'd keep her word. It's nothing really, I'd just rather -"...so flustered and cute!!!
4. What is one thing you hope happens with your character in Book 7? He gets accepted back into the Weasley-fold. And not at the expense of his dignity. "Look, I was wrong. Please let me stand beside you and fight."
5. What is one thing that absolutely can’t happen to your character in the final book, APART FROM DEATH? Percy can and will NOT become a Death Eater. Just no.

I found a really interesting essay on his character.

Fannish 5 (linking it directly is apparently where I am screwed up. So, go here to get to the community.
What are the five coolest gadgets, in any fandom?
- Oddjob's Bowler (James Bond): Talk about a concealed weapon!
- Magic Carpets (HP): Can you think of a more luxurious way to fly!?!
- The Batman Tool Belt (Batman): It's like Mary Poppins' bag, it holds everything!
- the Firefly model spaceship, most specifically Serenity (Firefly/Serenity)
- The Batmobile (Batman): talk about pimpin'!


This vid...never have I been so confused, yet amused at once.

I know I said this yesterday...but the new way to embed things...SO FUCKED UP!!!!!!!!!! To embed a widget or media such as videos, slideshows, or countdowns into your journal, grab the code and click on the little CD icon on the Update page. The icon will open up a box where you can paste in full embedding codes. Don't worry, your embedded content will show up in an iframe with a placeholder WRONG!!!! IT DOES NOT WORK! I have to edit my entry over ten times to "fix it". I still don't know how I've fixed it...I have to first save the entry as "Just Me" in order to get a true preview. Am I the only one having problems? Am I just some lone idiot?

You scored as Iceman. Iceman is one of the most powerful X-men. However, his immature impulsive personality hinders him from achieveing his full potential. His ego and reluctance to follow orders means that he often clashes with Cyclops. Despite being immature sometimes, he's very popular with the ladies and is an extremely powerful X-Man. Powers: Can lower the temperature in areas around him. Basically, he has a near limitless ability to freeze things and make massive amounts of ice.
