Mystery meme

Dear friends,

  1. If fate handed us different circumstances, I'd propose to you already…if, in those circumstances, you hadn't proposed first.
  2. You are everything your namesake promised, and quite a lot more…if you were your namesake, I'd propose to you too!
  3. I'm very well surprised by how much you've grown in all the years I've known you.
  4. May we have lots more deep and meaningful conversations, whether in this life or some future one.
  5. I wish we'd be more compatible with each other.
  6. I'm still too scared of you. (Shit, this applies to at least three people I know. Go Chris!)
  7. I wish you'd respect my space a lot more than you seem to do. I'm too polite to block you, but god knows how often I've been tempted to.
  8. Thanks for rescuing a good friend of mine; I owe you much.
  9. Life has changed so much for you, but please never forget who you are!
  10. I love you so much, and yet so little…I wish I didn't have to hold back so much.

Snarfed from yesmum. This will be interesting: I have 75 real people on my LJ friends list (including deleted users), so it's 1 in 7.5!

Oldie but goodie

Another meme from Special K!

Reply to this post, and I'll tell you one reason why I like/love/adore you. Then put this in your own journal, and spread the love.

Quick question

Poll #521002 Type stuff

What personality type have you?

What personality type would you say I have?

Optional comment

There are fairly decent type descriptions at Best-Fit Type, The Personality Page, TypeLogic, or the like, if you like an idea of what the various types are about. (The fields are wide enough for you to type ‘Don't know’ should that apply to you.)

Why I've put up this pollCollapse )

In other news, I'd like to wish Ruth a kick-arse birthday. :-D

The big speeding debate

Okay, so I'm opening a can of worms here, but what the hell, this journal needs a bit of excitement.

I've been reading the thread on speed radar detectors, and there's a debate going on about whether speeders are killers, or simply cash generators. Definite food for thought.

I dare say that slow drivers cause as many hazards than speeders. I'm talking about the ones who stubbornly drive 80 in a 100 zone (these are in km/h, for readers from Imperial-unit-using countries :-P), regardless of traffic condition. These are just as bad as those who drive 120 in a 100 zone, regardless of traffic condition.

Now, because I'm a sort-of speeder (and sort of proud of it), I'm going to go off into rant mode already. :-P

Come hear me roar! :-)Collapse )

Fun with secret crushes

Originally I published this entry as a contest, asking people who they think my most recent secret crush is. But I thought it'd be more fun if people wrote a little something about their own secret crushes. That'll get the gossip juices going!

Go on, don't be shy…. ;-)

Can't wait, can't wait…

In ten minutes or so, the recipient of the permanent account should have received it. If LiveJournal does its job, that is. :-P

Normally I'd have said nothing of the sort until after the event, because that would blow the surprise. But it seems like she'd be out drinking all night long (it ought to be 11-odd where she is), and I am a bit bored at the mo, so I thought I'd type something.

Not enough of a giveaway?Collapse )

And in other news, I'd like to wish Special K a very special birthday!

Current votes so far

We currently have nominations for (in chronological order):

  • Kari, because her 21st birthday is coming up!
  • Chris (I presume some other account of mine, since hedgee is already a perm), because perms are expensive!
  • Daniel, because he posts practically every day, and he deserves to have more LJ pics!
  • Zeb, because she's a lovely Aucklander whom [the poster] thinks I need to get to know, and that I will love her!
  • Vicki, because she's very stressed about exams!
  • Jen, because I love her and she loves an Aussie, and she can't afford to buy her own!
  • Elanor, because she's got another mouth to feed soon, and she deserves it!

So there we have it. I kinda rephrased things a bit, for fear that they would identify who the posters are. I'm sure you'll all figure out who's who anyway. :-)


So I still can't decide. If I could afford three, I'd get one for each of Charlie's Angels. ;-) (I'm not referring to the characters from the TV series or the films…I'm talking about three very dear online friends of mine.)

Torn (+ meme)

The LJ perm account sale is coming up in a day or so. I can only afford to buy one; for whom shall I get it? Have your say!

Poll #507351 For whom should I get a permanent account?

Username

Reason (optional but helps!)

(This isn't a democracy. The better the reason, the more likely I'd take the vote seriously. :-))

Also, another cool meme from Special K! (Who else?)

Sheep?Collapse )

Pet peeve

What's with sites that ask people to type in their email address twice? It's not like a password field, where presumably you're typing something you can't see, and it's not like people will enter it twice manually…sane people will type it once and cut/paste the second time.

(Of course, if I designed sites for myself, there would also only be one password field. But that's because I cut and paste my passwords, rather than enter by hand. :-))
