Meme from bookshop:



FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER:

Current DVD to Watch: I don't have one yet. I'd go buy Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, but I put it on my wishlist, and, well. Can't buy ANYTHING from my wishlist.

Current Movie to Watch: I was going to say Alexander, but the reviews coming in are so bad I don't know if I'll see it. Maybe Finding Neverland?

Current Actor to Watch: Probably Johnny Depp, although Ewan is always first. *g*

Current Music to Hear: Tossup between Elton and Bernie's Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy and the Flash Girls' Play Each Morning Wild Queen.

Current Book to Read: Perdido Street Station by China Mieville.

Current pastime to commit to: Writing. Must. Make. Time.

Current song to sing: Whatever I feel like at the time. My singing is mercurial.

Current food: Nime Chow. I can't stop!

Current drink: Coffee.



Oh, and:

American Gods
You are American Gods! You are mysterious,
intelligent, and creative. To the rest of the
world you may seem a little standoffish, but
really youre just a quiet person. Youre sort of
bookish and are intrigued by mythology and
fairy tales. You might be Wiccan or Pagan,
either that or youre unreligious. You have a
sarcastic sense of humor and are the kind of
person people like to talk to because youre
such a good listener.

I always thought I was Neverwhere. But it's accurate except the part about being quiet. Am not quiet. Mneh.

Stardust
You are Stardust! You are whimsical, creative, and
spirited. You might be seen as naive and
foolhardy, which is a little true, but it can
also be called bravery. Youre idealistic and
people might think youre a little off because
you talk about some strange things. You
probably love nature, whether its you love
animals, nature walks or just admiring it from
afar. Youre a creative person and like to write
short stories or poems and draw and paint. You
have a sly, self-depreciating sense of humor
and are a blast to be with because of your
adventurous personality.

What does this mean?

By the way, it's only and solely because of that link you linked on my LJ that I went out and bought Enigma two days ago. You don't even realise what a landmark that is for me. Me, buying a comic book. adsjf;lkjfs;klf.

*reads Amazon's description of Enigma*

Ooh, this sounds good!


I own exactly two comic books graphic novels--Preludes and Nocturnes and A Doll's House (Sandman vols. 1 and 2). I'd never read any other comics either. I figured the little pictures clogged up the (more important) words. But, I figured if Neil wrote it, it's worth a look, and surprise! I found that comics aren't just Archie and Batman. Sandman, at least, is a lovely new mythology. It's no wonder there are people going to conventions dressed up as Death. You should read these. *nods emphatically*


And, alas, I have never read Stardust. I've been looking for the illustrated version and can't find it for the life of me, so I gave up and put the un-illustrated version on my wishlist, and of course, I can't buy anything on said list until after Christmas.

I really do wish I hadn't put Coraline on the list, because wah, I want to read it Now!

I mean, gee:

"'The reason you cannot see the mouse circus,' said the man upstairs, 'is that the mice are not yet ready and rehearsed. And they refuse to play the songs I have written for them. All the songs I have written for the mice to play go oompah oompah. But the white mice will only play toodle oodle, like that. I am thinking of trying them on different types of cheese.'"

Why yes, I can be ten when I want. It's loads of fun *g* Is it Christmas yet?

Neverwhere
You are Neverwhere! You are dark, intriguing, and
lenient. You might make people feel
uncomfortable, either because you are
intimidating or you dress differently possibly
both. In reality you are a nice person, but
people tend to make snap judgments about you
and think they can push you around. You
probably are idealistic and dream of a utopian
society. The friends that you have are the kind
that last forever and you are fun and
easy-going when people bother to get to know
you.

Just had to share...

Lord of the rings
J.R.R. Tolkien: Lord of the Rings. You are
entertaining and imaginative, creating whole
new worlds around yourself. Well loved, you
have a whole league of imitators, none of which
is quite as profound as you are. Stories and
songs give a spark of joy in the middle of your
eternal battle with the forces of evil.


Which literature classic are you?

*giddy* Oh isn't that just grand??? I'll take that as a sign that I'm on the right road with my writing (which I haven't done in a week *curses damnable necessities of daily life*)

Re: Just had to share...

I thought I might get this one, but I tend to cringe at elves and the like, the only exception being this story. The problem with LOTR is it's often copied, and badly. *coughTerryBrookscough*
