Friday Five, 2008.02.29

This week’s five is stupid. Why do they assume that most people who blog still use livejournal? Oh well, I suppose I technically still have one…

  1. How long ago did you join LJ?
    Over five years ago, since 2002-12-15.
  2. How did you find out about LJ?
    I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time on the Internet. Might as well ask me how I found out about poop when I was a baby (no, wait – that would be Myspace!).
  3. If someone introduced you to LJ, is s/he still on your friends list?
    According to me of five years ago, it was Sancdar who gave me the LJ code, and though I no longer keep in touch with him he’s still on my friends list.
  4. Have you introduced anyone to LJ?
    No? I don’t know. Maybe Beth.
  5. Is your LJ public or friends only, and why?
    Friends only, because this is my public blog. I’m not special enough to need two public blogs, though in the past I have been known to want a place to vent.

Marriage is for people who lack imagination

I think these guys got what they deserved. The only reason to make a proposal public is to guilt the girl into saying ‘yes’, hence, the only fitting punishment is the embarrassment you receive when she turns you down.


Or maybe I’m just heartless?

What Punctuation Mark Are You?

You Are a Question Mark

You seek knowledge and insight in every form possible. You love learning.
And while you know a lot, you don’t act like a know it all. You’re open to learning you’re wrong.

You ask a lot of questions, collect a lot of data, and always dig deep to find out more.
You’re naturally curious and inquisitive. You jump to ask a question when the opportunity arises.

Your friends see you as interesting, insightful, and thought provoking.
(But they’re not always up for the intense inquisitions that you love!)

You excel in: Higher education

You get along best with: The Comma

Via The Presurfer, whom I would apparently get on well with.

Gambit!

Gambit
Gambit is my favorite X-man. (Totally diggin’ the cajun ;) )

So you can imagine how psyched I am that he finally gets to be in a movie!

Check it out:

Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights) has signed a three-picture deal to star as Gambit (aka Remy Lebeau) in the Gavin Hood-directed film, due out May 1, 2009.
