It would be lame of me not to post this having profited by it, so...

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- You will get something.
- No guarantees that you will like what I make!
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done sometime within a year.
- I'll need to know your favorite two colors, and favorite metal color.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to repost this in your journal. (Edit as necessary)

If you feel moved to post this in your journal, do so. If not, then don't.

Had a few minutes to do that song lyric meme - you know, the one where you put your ipod on shuffle and take the first lyric from x amount of songs, where x is some arbitrary number cooked up by someone who wanted to be clever. So anyway, if you know what I'm talking about and feel the need to perpetuate the meme, then go nuts, otherwise, feel free to ignore this.

I am the fountain of affection )

1. If you feel like it, leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. Depending on my mood, how busy I am, if the stars are right, I may or may not respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better. If I already know you well, expect the questions may be a little more intimate!
3. You can update your LJ with the answers to the questions if you so desire.
4. Optionally, you can include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you can ask them five questions if you feel like it.
Edited because I hate memes that are pushy. That and I'm sure y'all have better things to do with your time than pester me with questions.

Out of curiosity, I decided to take the Enneagram test thingy from okcupid. Much like everyone else I've seen take this, the results surprised me. This wiki article on Enneagrams adds some additional insight to the below results. )

Yesterday's experiment, aka my last post, is now over. Thank you to those who played along, that took a degree of courage, even if you used the anonymous option.

A few people have asked me what the point of that was - after all, it could be read as a desperate cry for attention, a not so subtle sign that I'm unhappy in my marriage, or just that I'm a skeevy perv who cruises lj to try and get laid. In this instance, none of those scenarios are true - I know, I know, try to contain your disappointment at the fact that I'm not an attention starved perv who is trapped in a loveless marriage. My reasons for posting the meme were actually fairly simple/straight forward; I wanted to see what would happen if I pushed the envelope in a particular direction. I view my use of memes as sort of this bizarre social experiment and this was just another example of that.

Hopefully, y'all weren't too offended/scandalized.

I'm out.

In my usual belated fashion, I would like to extend a thank you to everyone who played along with the recommendation meme thing. That is all. Carry on citizens.
beled_el_djinn: (Eye2)
Due to an overabundance of time at my desk today, I present to you this little meme. Feel free to spread it if you must.

Recommend to me:

1. a movie
2. a book
3. a musical artist, song, or album
4. a LiveJournal user not on my friends list
5. what I should have for dinner
6. a website
7. a quote
beled_el_djinn: (wild rumpus)
First off, a warm thank you to everyone who weighed in on the last poll. I love these glimpses behind the curtains of your eyes and it is always interesting when an unexpected visitor shows up.

Point the second, mortgage pre-approval papers to sign tonight. Aieeeeeeee! We're on the road to becoming homeowners!!!

Lastly, I've been doing a lot of thinking recently on how I love. Recent events forced me to take a look at myself in the mirror and re-examine some of my longer held notions. Life is a learning process, that is for sure.

There's more to say, but for now, this will have to suffice.

I'm out.

Science )

In other news, I have a new found respect for writers. Dialog is a vexing thing for me and anyone who can manage it rawks the hizaus. Unless I don't like them. In which case, I appreciate their talents, but will not countenance any hizaus rawking by them.
