Put your MP3 player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results.

I could talk to you for days
I traded fame for love without a second thought
Sucker, love is heaven sent
I comb the crowd and pick you out

It's been the longest winter without you
I can see it in your eyes, you're scared
You're showing in your face
Time here all but means nothing

From the moment the lights went off
Sat outside my front window
Mr. Maker, he's gutting me
I treat this like my thesis

Your heart's breaking in rain
There's always cracks
There's traffic in the say
Back to the street where we began

You can keep your black tongue
Can't you see that it's just raining?

Well. That made absolutely no sense. This is why I shouldn't do memes.

From the lovely [livejournal.com profile] ignipes . Comment if you'd like 5 questions of your own!

1. Do you prefer coffee or tea or something else?

 Hmmm. I'm a whore for herbal teas, the more obscure and weird sounding, the better. Right now, I've got this liqorice root and celery tea. It sounds... iffy, but tastes divine!

2. Where do want to be in ten years?

Ten years from now, I want to be working abroad. Specfiaclly in Chicago. I have no idea why Chicago holds so much appeal for me (and I HATE cold weather. The desert spoiled me) but there you go. Or Japan. Japan just fascinates me because it's so different from everywhere I've ever been.

3. What's your favorite dessert?

It used to be anything chocolate related, until my horrible nutritionist was all "o hai, ur allergic" So no more. DDD: But, I'm huge fun of malva pudding or roly poly pudding. Basically, if you can pour custard over it, I'm sold.

4. How did you get into fandom?

My all-knowing sister got into it after she started listening to MCR (on MY suggestion. My wisdom knows no bounds) and she told me about it. I was all, RPS: DO NOT WANT. Then I read the Holly Golightly Club around November last year. And the rest, as they say, is history. I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to bandom.

I was into lotr fic for a while a couple of years ago, but I'd let my sister slog through all the... not so good stuff, and just read the gems.

5. What are you favorite kinds of stories to read?

I love love LOVE angst. The more angst, the better. Angst and UST and boykissing. And I like happy endings, or at least, I don't like devastatingly sad endings. Also: LOOOOOOOOONFIC. I love those long stories, I love settling in for an afternoon and just immersing myself in the world someone else has created. This is my very subtle way of telling [livejournal.com profile] ignipes  that "OMG ilu! slavefic!" Definitely in the top ten stories I've read all year. I don't know if I mentioned that in the comments to the actual story, but hey, I'll just shove it in here.


"Hey, why don't you do a meme?"
"But everyone's already done this one!"
"Hmmm. You make a good point there."

Welcome to my brain, Population 2 (apparently) Does anyone else have weird conversations with THEMSELVES?

Here, have a birthday meme, stolen from the infinitely cheery [livejournal.com profile] mysteriouswolf1 

* Pick your birth month.
* Strike out anything that doesn't apply to you.
* Bold (or italicize) the five-ten that best apply to you.
* Copy to your own journal, with all twelve months under a lj-cut.

DECEMBER: Loyal and generous. Sexy. Patriotic. Active in games and interactions. Impatient and hasty. Ambitious. Influential in organizations. Fun to be with. Loves to socialize. Loves praises. Loves attention. Loves to be loved. Honest and trustworthy. Not pretending. Short tempered. Changing personality. Not egotistic. Take high pride in oneself. Hates restrictions. Loves to joke. Good sense of humor.

Hee, I giggled when I read sexy! Not gonna cross it out though. Why yes, I don't have any shame! Thanks for noticing!

Looking for the rest? Under the cut! )
I COULD do a real post, but I'm honestly too tired. I had a long day on campus, so I'll write something meaningful tomorrow. 

For now, have a meme! Stolen from my darling . Fill it it, then post it into your journal!

Dear Ndapwa,

I _____ you. You have a nice _____. You make me ____. You should _______. Someday I will _____. You
