Ok, so from now on, I'm making this friends only. If you want to be added as a friend, leave a comment here saying who you are. I rarely friend random people who just stick me on their freind list. If you know me... I guess you can friend me.. but please tell me! It's creepy when some random person comes along and friends me!!!

I'm sure you know the rules, but just in case: I put my music player on shuffle, type out the start of the lyrics of the first 30 things that play, you guess the song, I cross it off the list and put your name by it.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I'm currently an atheist. I don't believe in any god or deity and I don't follow any religion. But I don't entirely reject the idea of some sort god. I just don't believe in one currently, as I have no reason or evidence to believe in one - but I would be open to the idea of one possibly existing. I would go as far as to say I entirely reject the idea of the god of classical theism (a single omnipotent, omniscient, benevolent) as I don't believe that an all loving, all knowing and all poweful being could exist in this world (because of the inconsistent triad). So, to sum up: I would consider converting to a religion if I could be shown sufficient proof or at least extremely good evidence that that religion (as opposed to all the others) was actually correct... and didn't contradict itself about 300 times. In fact, I very much enjoyed this video, How To Convert an Atheist (and here is part 2)

[Error: unknown template qotd]What a stupid question. What type of animal? Some certainly do - humans do. We're animals. Non-human animals? I don't know. Again, it depends on the animal. I doubt my goldfish regret much. A gorilla might feel regret in a less complex way to a human. My dictionary (I know I'm looking too much into this) says regret is to "feel sad about the loss or absence of" something. Dogs get sad when you go away. Hey, even my rabbit gets sad when we go away. So in answer to the question: Yes. At least some animals. Humans at the very least.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I always use the landline at home. And I almost always use the home landline if I want to telephone someone. I rarely use my mobile at all really. I just generally keep it with me in case I really need it, though I usually keep it off. I also know this question was written by someone american (or at least someone who speaks american english) because they called a mobile a "cell phone"

1. Randomly pick a song from your music library.
2. Find the lyrics for the first four verses/chorus
3. Go to Google translation and translate the lyrics into German.
4. Take the new German lyrics and translate them into French.
5. Take the new French lyrics and translate them into English.
6. Post the NEW English lyrics and have people guess the original song.

The spring is here, the spring is there.
Life is from police, and life is pint.
I think that the nicest period of the year is the spring.
I make it, that it agrees?  Lesson to make.
But it a thing which comes out again ended for me,
and made each on Sunday a pleasure for me.

Everybody seems in air, the Spring of afternoon,
if to poison us of pigeons in the park.
Each on Sundays, you will see
My darling and me,
as poisoning it to us of pigeons in the park.

When they see us to come, all try hides,
but they are still for peanuts,
if angestrichen, by potassium cyanide.
The sun shining clearly,
Each seems completely correct,
if poison us of pigeons in the park.

Wow, I think it worked pretty well!

[Error: unknown template qotd]I don't really agree that there are "some of the best LJ moments" taking place in the comments... I'm not sure what an "LJ moment" is and I also don't think many people remember specific comments. But as it turns out, there is one that I remember which I found very funny, and it's from Minnie:

I tried it to see what would happen.

Turns out, yeah, you get the fish.

I don't think many people are going to understand that. But I think even funnier than the comment was her userpic of that fish head and also the fact that she couldn't remember how to change userpics and got stuck with the fish.

Put your knitting on the shelf
And go out to fetch your food
And continue on row twelve
When you are in the mood

Make sure you get enough to eat
Of pizza full of toppings
Then come and take a seat
And knit your dragon with no wings.


What I mean to say is:

[Error: unknown template qotd]Not exactly recurring dreams, but I've recently been having a series of dreams all about being late for things / missing things. They range from missing my exams entirely to being late for morris dancing. From missing the last rocket off the earth as the planet is destroyed to being late for meeting friends in the park. But they all have the same panicked feeling as I try to move but somehow every thing is clumsy and I'm unable to get dressed, get my things together, or move very quickly at all. Funnily enough, in my dreams, the end of the world is as scary as being late for dancing.

Apparently dreams about being late mean that I'm either neglecting responsibilty or would like to avoid what I'm dreaming I'm late for. I'd like to avoid my exams, and I guess I'd also like to avoid the end of the world...
Apparently these dreams could also mean I'm experiencing or fearing a loss of control or fear of being controlled by outside circumstances. I think this is probably more fitting to me than the other explanation.

So there are me dreams.

[Error: unknown template qotd]For Gecko there once came a time
When she was finding it awkward to rhyme
On Limerick Day
She had nothing to say
Her poem's so bad it's a crime!

[Error: unknown template qotd]Wear 'girly' clothes - dresses, skirts, etc. I now wear skirts as much as I wear trousers, and I have 'girl' shirts. Though I still have plenty of generally unisex t-shirts and trousers. This vaguely remind me of Cams's rection the other year when I was on webcam with her and she said "omg! you're wearing a girl's shirt!". This prompted me to make that avatar that some of you people on my f'list may have seen with that quoteon it.

That's about all I can think of...

[Error: unknown template qotd]It would be cool to try out any time period for the novelty but if I actually lived in it, and had all my life, there would be no novelty about it. It would just be normal and since I wouldn't know any different, I wouldn't have anything to compare it to or prefer it to. Of course, this doesn't really answer the question. But anyway, it would depend on what status I had in the society of whatever time I choose. So I don't think I can really answer this... Or, my answer will have to just be this era. Since I'm already here and it seems to be going ok. Maybe I'm a bit boring and/or over-analysing this. But that's what I so.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Nothing immediately springs to mind... though the zipper on my trousers often slips down - I have 2 pairs of jeans from M&S that do this all the time, and people are constantly like, "Emma - your fly's undone..." I also put my shirt on inside out the other day and walked around town with it like that until a) I noticed and b) found a toilet where I could go and fix it. Oh, and I once put a sweatshirt on right over my bra and forgot to put on a shirt. Plus I've forgotten knickers before. It seems I'm a generally forgetful person. Also, going on swings and various climbing equipment while in ladies' morris dancing kit means people get a nice view of my bloomers. That's about it!

[Error: unknown template qotd]No.

Interesting thing about locus of control (Rotter 1966). People who have an external locus of control (believe in fate, luck, etc) tend to be more likely to be criminals than people with an internal locus of control (believe they control/guide what happens to them through their actions). People with an external locus of control are less likely to feel guilty for doing 'wrong' things if they felt that they didn't have a say in the matter. That they are 'just that way' or that it was inevitable. If people believe it's going to happen anyway, they won't bother trying to stop it / not do it.
So there's another thing badly explained and possibly mangled by the Gecko.
geckoface_eater: (Default)
[Error: unknown template qotd]It depends. Some things really do need do be planned while others work fine, or even better, when they're a spur of the moment thing. If you've got a big group of people doing something, it's usually a good idea to plan it. If it's just a couple of people, it's easier to just go and do something. Also, if you're travelling a long way, it's better to plan in advance. Plus a lot of things cost less when booked in avdance.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Ohman, do I have to hear about this everywhere I go? It seems you can't have a conversation lately without swine flu bring brought into it. Talking about it all the time is hardly going to help anything. There's a differentce between making people aware of it and going around shouting "swine flu!" at everyone. I can't go anywhere without being assulted by people trying to warn eachother about swine flu. Even LJ isn't safe it seems. There'll be T-shirts next: "SwINE FLU IS COMING FOR YOU!"

[Error: unknown template qotd]"In the wild" where?

It depends on the location, what's available, and what I have with me and various other circumstances. If I was dropped in the middle of the arctic with nothing, I'm pretty sure I'd freeze to death pretty damn quick. If I was dropped in the middle of somewhere with no reachable water source, I'd be pretty screwed also. If I was somewhere with a whole bucnh of dangerous wildlife, I also would be a bit of a goner. If I was stuck in a vaguely deciduous forest I think I'd be ok for a while as long as there was water available. And some form of food source. Nice catchable animals might be ok and various planty things though I'm hardly an expert when trying to decide if my meal looks poisonous.  I might even be ok in a different climate. It also depends on what sort of supplies I had with me, if any. Just as long as you don't drop me on some island with a bunch of boys. I don't want a real life Lord of the Flies.

If you want a brief answer to this question: I know basic survival skills. All that shelter building, fire starting, navigation stuff.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Or any of the Little House books, but I thought I'd recomment the first one (especially since anyone who reads it will then want to go and read all the others!). Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 and wrote the Little House series based on her childhood in a pioneer family. The books are about herself, though she refers to herself in the third person.

I read it because I just found it mixed in with some books that were my mother's. This was about 4 or 5 years ago. The only bad thing is that I didn't read it sooner!

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee

Mine are chosen by [info]bluebeing


Good Ideas: This is a picture of a foot that I drew freehand on Paint (which explains the deformed-ness of it) with a not-quite quote from Blackadder. Baldrick tells Blackadder that having a good idea is dangerous because it may cause your foot to fall off. When questioned further, he says that his uncle had the good idea of cutting is toe nails with a scythe and his foot fell off. I use this icon when I'm writing about an idea or plan for something, something new that I've tried, something that didn't quite go as planned, or anything else that I think fits with this quote.

PAIN: I originally made this icon to use as an avatar in the Steelsings chat when Beca and I briefly became GekklesBekkles (or: Doctor Bekkles and Nurse Gekkles) and operated on people with the Crapulator. The Crapulator was operated by Beca, and I, as Nurse Gekkles would clear up the Crapule afterwards. Then I decided I should have some sort of thing to use on people, so I decided on the Pointy Abrasive Injection Needle or P.A.I.N. I use this icon if I've hurt or injured myself or done something very tiring or painful.

Ukulele: This is a picture from a sleepover at Leila's house. I just quite liked the picture and decided to upload it as an lj icon. I also like the hat which belongs to leila. The ukulele is mine, and I can't actually play it I'm just pretending for the purpose of this picture. (The other picture of me taken at this time is one with me wearing the same hat, and in the same place on the sofa, but with my eyes closed, a cigarette in my mouth and a vodka bottle in my hand. For the record, I didn't actually smoke or drink anything). I like this icon because it looks like I'm just generally having carefree fun, so I use it when I'm in a generally happy mood or have had a generally happy day, or just done something that's just fun.

Pirate: This is a picture from when I went to see the 3rd Pirates of the Caribbean movie while dressed as a pirate. Like the Ukulele one, I'm just looking pretty cheerful and carefree in this one. I use it for entries when where I want a userpic that basically says "tada!" or "hooray!" or when I'm in a cheerful / excitable mood.

Gingerhouse: This is a picture of me with a gingerbread house that I made around September 2008. I was using my fingers to walk along the path, while going "la la la la!". I use this icon for entries where I'm writing about something a bit silly or also for ones that are quite fun or happy. I think of this icon as saying "tralalalala!".
