Hmm, this might have been true when I was younger, but not so sure about now...

You were born during a First Quarter moon

This phase occurs in the middle of the moon's waxing phases, after the new moon and before the full moon.

- what it says about you -

You test everything. You're sometimes unhappy with what others think is "good enough". You point out things you see wrong with the world, even if others are afraid it may cause some unrest. When something isn't right, you're the one who's not afraid to make dramatic changes. You're good at keeping your head in a crisis and reminding people that it takes a shakeup to fix things.

What phase was the moon at on your birthday? Find out at

So, here's that 30 Days of Buffy meme that went around a while ago, all in one day!

Interesting book meme, snagged from next_to_normal over on DW. :)

1. Favorite childhood book?

I'm not sure I have just one favourite childhood book. I was an avid reader as a child, so I have a long and varied list to choose from. The What Katy Did series of books were huge favourites that were read time and time again, so they would definitely be up there.

I've seen this in a few places, but finally snagged it from [ profile] dampersnspoons. :)

ETA: I forgot to mention on the recording that I'm from Birmingham, West Midlands in the UK.

Here's the words if you want to play along:

Say These Words:

Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting Image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught

Now answer these questions:

What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is the bug that when you touch it, curls into a ball?
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a group of people?
What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

The sound is a bit crackly, so I don't sound very loud on it. Which is probably just as well, as I sound awful with my Brummie accent. *g*

And to those of you who've met me in RL, this is probably the most you've ever heard me say! *is shy*

1 - List your top 10 celebrity crushes.
2 - Put all of them IN ORDER of your lust for them.(10 to 1, 1 being your number one fixation)
3 - Say which movie/show/thing it was that hooked you.
4 - Supply photos of said people
5 - Tag five people. (I'm not doing this part. If you want to play along, feel free.)

I'm not really into 'celebrity crushes' as such, so most of my choices here are influenced by the characters they've played on TV or in movies, rather than by their dazzling RL personalities. I do find them all attractive though... ;)

My Top Ten )

List given to me by [ profile] hobbituk.

If you want to play then leave a comment and I'll give you 10 actors and 10 actresses (or 5 and 5, if you prefer) and in your own journal, post the movies you enjoy most with those actors. No pressure, do it if you want to and don't if you don't.

I've finally watched the latest episode of True Blood. Thanks to everyone on my flist for keeping your reactions to the episode under a cut, so I didn't get spoiled. I really do appreciate it! I'll post my thoughts on the episode later. :)

The first 28 days )

Well, I've finally come to the end of this meme. At least it won't be clogging up your friends pages any more! ;)

Day 29 - Current TV show obsession

I don't think anyone will be surprised to hear that the two shows I'm currently obsessed with are True Blood and The Vampire Diaries. I don't think I'll ever love them quite as much as I love the Buffyverse, but it's good to have something new to obsess over!

Day 30 - Saddest character death

There are two that come to mind straight away: Dr Mark Greene on ER and Charlie Pace on Lost.

Day 28 - First TV show obsession

There have been a few shows I've been obsessive about over the years, where I couldn't miss a single episode, and would drop everything to make sure that I didn't. But the two that come to mind first are ER and The X-Files. I watched them both from the first episode and completely fell in love with them.

Read more... )

But if we're talking about obsession that includes being involved in a fandom, discussing every aspect of the show to death, reading fanfic, and still talking about the show long after it's been off air, then there's only one TV show it could be, and that's Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

I don't think there will ever be another TV show like it for me. The Buffyverse was what first drew me into online fandom, and without it I would never have met all of you. It literally changed my life, and for that I will always be truly grateful.

Rest of the days under the cut )

Last list of the day. :)

My Top Ten Favourite 'Ships (romantic, friendship and other...)

1. Buffy/Spike (BtVS)
2. Desmond/Penny (Lost)
3. Aeryn/John (Farscape)
4. Mulder/Scully (The X-Files)
5. Jason/Andy (True Blood) *g*
6. Erica/Kai (Being Erica)
7. Spike/Angel (AtS)
8. Mitchell/George (Being Human)
9. Jessica/Hoyt (True Blood)
10. Sawyer/Juliet (Lost)

Honorary mentions:

Damon/Elena (The Vampire Diaries) - my favourite new 'ship of the year.
Gene/Sam (Life on Mars - UK)
Eric/Sookie (True Blood)
Eric/Bill (True Blood)
Bill/Sookie (True Blood)

And because I failed to mention them on my favourite male character list, my favourite new characters are:

Lafayette (True Blood)
Jason Stackhouse (True Blood)

To be honest, I can't really think of any characters from True Blood that I don't like - apart from Maryann, that is. :D
caliente_uk: (happybuffy (cheesygirl))
Another list!

My top ten favourite female characters (TV shows):

1. Buffy Summers (BtVS)
2. Aeryn Sun (Farscape)
3. Dana Scully (The X-Files)
4. Veronica Mars (Veronica Mars)
5. Erica Strange (Being Erica)
6. Jessica Hamby (True Blood)
7. River Song (Doctor Who)
8. Kima Greggs (The Wire)
9. Alicia Florick (The Good Wife)
10. Elena Gilbert (The Vampire Diaries)

As before this is by no means a definitive list, and is likely to change at any time. If you're wondering why Sookie Stackhouse isn't on the list, it isn't that I don't like her (I do), it's just that she isn't quite as interesting (to me) as the other women on my list.
caliente_uk: (Spike/Eric)
A list!

My top ten favourite male characters of all time (TV shows):

1. Spike (BtVS)
2. Desmond Hume (Lost)
3. Fox Mulder (The X-Files)
4. Eric Northman (True Blood)
5. Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries)
6. Gene Hunt (Life on Mars - UK)
7. The Doctor (Doctor Who)
8. Angel (AtS)
9. Dean Winchester (Supernatural)
10. Sam Tyler (Life on Mars - UK)

And just because I don't want to leave them out, the next five would be:

11. Castiel (Supernatural)
12. John Crichton (Farscape)
13. Bill Compton (True Blood)
14. Sam Beckett (Quantum Leap)
15. Daniel Faraday (Lost)

This is by no means a definitive list, and is likely to change at any given time. The only two that I can't see changing positions any time soon are Spike and Desmond. :)

The first 26 days )

Day 27 - Best pilot episode

This is an easy one: Lost had an amazing pilot episode that caught my imagination from the opening scene. I don't think I've ever seen another series that had such a strong beginning. Most tend to take a while before they really start to show their true potential, but with Lost it was instantaneous.

Day 26 - OMG WTF? Season finale

I'm not quite sure what to put for this one. Last year's Grey's Anatomy finale had a definite OMG quality to it, as did S5 of House. Also the finale of Dexter S4 was another OMG! moment. But the series finale of St Elsewhere has got to be one of the biggest WTF moments on TV, so I think I'll go with that one.

The first 24 days )

Day 25 - A show you plan on watching (old or new)

I'll probably rewatch Lost at some point, and I still rewatch old BtVS episodes from time to time. But the show I'm most looking forward to at the moment is S3 of True Blood. The trailers and minisodes have been wonderful so far, and I'm excited to see what the new season will bring. June 13th can't get here fast enough!

Snagged from [ profile] stormwreath and [ profile] gillo.

This meme has been around for a long time, but I've always given it a miss in the past as I usually have way too many books close at hand. I sit next to a big bookcase, and usually also have a 'to be read' pile of books next to me. But today I actually have just my e-reader and one book on the arm of my chair. The e-reader has more than a hundred books/fanfic on it right now, so I'll go for the single book that I'm just about to start. :)

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).

I have no idea what's going on...(contains bad language) )

I missed a day yesterday as LJ wasn't loading for me.

Day 23 - Most annoying character

This is an easy one to answer: Chloe O'Brian from 24. I will never understand why they kept bringing her back season after season. Not only is she the most annoying character ever, but the actress who plays her CAN'T ACT! She really is awful.

Day 24 - Best quote

From BtVS episode After Life:

Spike to Buffy: I do remember what I said. The promise. To protect her. (pause) If I had done that ... even if I didn't make it ... you wouldn't have had to jump. But I want you to know I did save you. Not when it counted, of course, but ... after that. Every night after that. I'd see it all again ... do something different. Faster or more clever, you know? Dozens of times, lots of different ways ... (softly) Every night I save you.

Thanks to the invaluable Buffyverse Dialogue Database for the quote.

Sorry for the lack of replies to comments. As I said above, LJ has been a nightmare to load over the last few days. It seems better today, so I'll respond to comments as soon as I can.
