02:00 pm - Books! Books! Books!
What should i read next? I'm between books. Yes, i know i should be working, but if i read nothing but scientific papers all the time my brain will collapse.

I finished reading The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield a few weeks ago (it was fun, by the way) and I've been in book limbo ever since. It's not a good place to be. My supply of back issues of The New Yorker is dwindling...

Help! I'm looking for something light enough to be restful but substantive enough to hold my interest and well written enough not to annoy me completely. Suggestions?

01:34 pm - Kinda Big Request...
Does anyone have a laptop running Windows that i could borrow for a few weeks?

It needs to have at least:
PC Pentium 4 processor (or AMD processor with similar benchmarks)
Microsoft Windows 2000 or Windows XP operating system
256 MB RAM
40GB Hard drive

I would need it this weekend, next weekend and possibly for a week around Thanksgiving...

05:18 pm - I've been tagged!
Seven random things about myself:

1. I don't remember a time in my life when i didn't know the story of The Hobbit. I was a hobbit throughout much of my childhood and, when i couldn't fall asleep at night, I would pretend that i was Bilbo Baggins waiting in the eerie silence at the mouth of the dragon's cave, deep within the lonely mountain. (This is, of course, entirely my father's fault.)

2. When i was really little my favorite color was red. Late in high school some time i decided i liked purple the most but i'm beginning to rediscover my love of red.

3. I'm still bitter that i didn't get to play Titania my senior year of high school. (Going into our senior year my friend and i discussed how, in an ideal world, we would do Midsummer in the fall so i could be Titania and then Annie in the spring so she could be Miss Hannigan. That these are the plays the director chose isn't that random -- we had some inkling that he would. But we had no idea that he would pass both of us over for our dream roles and cast younger students in a "show them they aren't entitled and recruit new players" sort of move.)

4. I'm still maliciously happy that the sophomore who did get the part of Titania flaked out and left the production without a major lead mere days before opening night. Ha!!

5. Winter is, without any doubt, my favorite time of year. I love the cold, i love sweaters and bundling up and i LOVE snow. (In an amazing bout of self-absorption I often secretly think that it snows just to make me happy.)

6. I get incredibly motion sick on swing sets but i love swinging on them anyway.

7. I actually like being tagged for these meme-y things 'cause i can then fill them out without feeling like i'm taking up more than my share of the lj bandwidth. I know that's silly but still...

And now i get to tag 7 other people! Wheee.... LJ users apintrix, merinslips, elizabif, allium, bloodstones, monkeygod and killer_mango, I Choose You!

05:32 pm - ARRRRGH -- Gremlins in my phone.
My phone isn't working. It keeps saying "call failed" when i try to call out, even though it also claims it's at full connection strength. I tried going outside. I tried going down the street. I tried shutting the phone off. All to no avail.

The Verizon website says to try calling *228 but that call fails too. The website also told me to try "power cycling" -- turn off the phone by taking the battery out. That doesn't help either. If those things don't work the website says to call them. I can't call the Verizon help because my phone doesn't work.

Anyone have any suggestions???

05:27 pm - Welcome Back, Phoebe!
Hoory for the return of Phoebe, the little green Saturn! I picked her up from the shop this afternoon.

Also, hooray for the shiny new sofa and love-seat that were delivered this morning. No more sitting on the floor (unless i choose to!) One step closer to having a visit-able apartment.

Finally, anyone need boxes (or anticipate needing boxes in the near future)? We have many and they are in very good shape. Depending on where you live i'll even bring them to you!

Hello friends out there in LJ land!

Anyone interested in subletting a very nice room in a Porter Sq apartment? It is mere steps from the T! Rent is low, the room is big, the apartment is clean!

The apartment is available now, with the option to renew the lease in August.

Please, pass the word. If you can think of anyone who might be interested let me know!

12:58 pm - Nifty Movie Meme!
Go to IMDB, pick out five favorite movies, and then click on the "plot keywords" section. List three of the keywords for each of the movies, and see if people can guess which movie you're talking about.
(Thanks orichalcum)

1. Growing Up / Forgiveness / Castle (Labyrinth -- eeyorecol)
2. Child Nudity / Male Nudity / Balcony (Romeo and Juliet -- orichalcum Bonus points if you can figure out which one...)
3. Famous Score / Princess Diana / Fish Out Of Water (Amelie -- apintrix)
4. Performance Artist / 1990s / Left Handedness
5. Child Hero / Father Son Estrangement / Breaking The Fourth Wall (The Neverending Story -- apintrix)

(For all but #5 I used the first 3 key words that imdb provided. #5 needed more detail...)

You scored as The Hazel. In Celtic astrology, you're a Hazel. The animal symbol that accompanies this tree is the salmon. The ancient Druids say Hazel people are creative, artistic, expressive, imaginative and perceptive. They often make good teachers. However, Hazels may be prone to being overly analytical, morose or preoccupied in their own thoughts.
