I'm not pregnant guys, this is just a meme. [03 Mar 2007|03:25pm]
What are everyone's top 5 names for both genders and why do you like them so much? Are there any in your top 5 that you wouldn't use for a first name - why?

And because it bears repeating, this is just a meme.


Girls:

Aurora- I've loved this name since I saw Sleeping Beauty as a child. It has very cute nicknames, like Aura and Rory, and it has a lovely meaning and history behind it.

Lily- I will probably wind up using this as a middle name because so many other people love it too! Lillies have always been my favorite flower, and I like the association with Princess Lily from a favorite childhood movie, Legend.

Serena- Embarrassingly, Sailor Moon is probably an influencing factor here. Still, I think the name is so lovely, and again, I love the meaning and history.

Tessa- I've thought a bit about using this one as a nickname, but Teresa just doesn't feel the same to me, and Tessera seems a bit too out there. I think it can hold up find on its own. Anyways, what I love about this one is that it sounds both spunky and like it has some sparkle, if that makes any sense at all.

Annabelle- I like pretty much all the -belle names, but this one is my favorite. I love the Edgar Allen Poe reference, even if it is an unhappy poem, and I think this one has the best nickname options out of all the names like it.


Boys:

Elijah- This is hands down my favorite boys name. I love the way it sounds, and I love what a different feel the nickname Eli has from the name.

Dante- Alighieri's probably to blame for this one. I'd probably like it even if I'd never heard of him, though. I also like Durante, Dante's actual name, but I don't know that I would use it.

Gideon- I'm probably not the only person who has a fondness for pronouncing this name like it in The Beatles classic "Rocky Raccoon", and as thus I'll probably never use this one. It's a great name, though.

Luther- I really don't know what attracts me to this one, aside from the very nerdy nickname option "Lex". I know that Lex spells it Luthor, but still. ; ; It's very rare and it just sounds great to me.

Lucian- I like Lucius too, but that one sounds a little too much like "luscious" to me. Lucian of Samosata is a pretty awesome namesake. It also helps that I know a little boy with this name who is pretty much the cutest thing I've ever seen.

I love seeing what names people like, so I hope this one catches on!

The other night I had a dream about someone who probably hasn't thought about me in a long time. I haven't really thought much about that person in a long time either, truth be told, and realizing that made me sad.

This person isn't a part of my life at all now, but some of the best memories in my life involved them. My head is full of wonderful memories that I treasure, but many of the people involved in them don't play a big role in my life these days, if any. It's what comes of moving to another state, I guess.

I don't mean to say that I regret moving to Massachusetts, because I don't at all (even if I do hate it here). I was an absolute mess around the time I left, and I think that I would have continued on that downward spiral if I hadn't forced some change into my life. It was one of the best decisions I ever made, even if thinking about it right now makes me sad.

It's easier to imagine that all these people would play bigger roles in my life had I not moved then that possibility would be in reality, of course. The person that I dreamed about had ended our relationship before I moved, and there's another person who I probably got closer with after leaving. But there are certainly some people who are pretty neat that I would've stayed friends with, so I guess this entry is me mourning losing them.

Like I said, I don't regret moving, but I do regret not treasuring all these people like I should have. It's not as easy to find people who make life feel magical as it used to seem. I guess that's part of being young and foolish, eh?

I don't think...that the person I was back then was a very good person. I still don't know that I'd call myself a good person now, but I know that I appreciate people more then I did then. I still push people away, and I probably always will, but I like to think I have more regard for their feelings.

I wasn't a good person, but there were a lot of people who loved me in spite of that, and since I didn't treasure that then, I'll treasure it now. I'm probably always going to be weird and introverted and push most of the people who I admire the most away, but at least I hope they know how much I think of them now.

This is what I get for reading weepy shoujo manga all night. ;)

People are mean jerkheads and have entitlement complexes.

I bet magical ponies never have these problems.

The amazing and talented rezo came up for the idea for a bunch of people at a forum we frequent to try and make something totally silly into an internet trend.

We decided that our trend's slogan would be "poop bus", and that said trend would involve Bill Cosby, and poop bus.

We're in phase one of our internet takeover. We've started invading ytmnd with poop bus related stuff. Here is where I need some help!

If you want to make bill cosby + poop bus the new internet trend, go to these ytmnds and rate them 5! If you are not interested, then please leave them be.

http://flywiththepoopbus.ytmnd.com/
http://catpoopbus.ytmnd.com/
http://poopbusbond.ytmnd.com/
http://waitingforpoopbus.ytmnd.com/

Just think! If this works and people are saying "lol poop bus" left and right you can be like "I knew about the poop bus before it was cool!".

Thanks guys!

p.s. spreading the poop bus is awesome too!

I have been meaning to make some sort of big update here for months, but for some reason I never get around to it.

So I am doing a meme instead.

2) I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.

3) Original stupid question.. i'll just tell you where i think you'll be in 5 years.

4) I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me.

5) I'll tell you my first memory of you.

6) I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.

7) I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.

8) If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal. You MUST. It is written!

NDI: WOMAN WITH AN OPINION ON THE SUBJECT OF THIS COLUMN

my opinion on fruit is that it can sometimes be quite tasty. but only if you are in the mood for fruit.

ALTERNATE TITLE: I don't know what to write in this anymore.

I don't want this journal to go to waste though, so I've come up with something to do with it until I have something worth saying again.

Once a week or so, I'm going to post the 5 songs that I've been enjoying the most lately. They won't neccesarily be great songs, or songs that all of you will like, but they will be songs that have entertained me, and I hope that some of them entertain some of you too.

Cocorosie: By Your Side
Spoon: I Turn My Camera On
The Ditty Bops: Short Stacks
Mates of State: Haha
The Bottle Cap Bandits: Made to Last

Erik, I played your new song for Merl, and he caught me singing along.

I'm at a strange place in my life right now. I don't know what to say about it other then that.

I need to start thinking less about myself and more about other people and how I can make them happy.

For once I have plenty of time to play around on the internet at work, and ffshrine is down.

It is a cruel, cruel world.

So I got the new Ben Folds album.

I'm not that crazy about it right now, to be honest. The rest of the internet world seems to think it's his finest work, so maybe my taste in music is not as good as I thought.

I don't know. A lot of the songs sound like poor man's versions of some of his older songs. One of the songs even starts with the exact same chords as Emaline. Proof:

Emaline

Prison Food

And aside from that, the album sounds pretty same-y.

Nothing is really that catchy. I'm on my third listen through, and none of the songs have stuck out yet. None of the lyrics are really grabbing me.

It's kind of depressing, I guess. He's been one of my favorites since I was in middle school, and this is the first time he's come out with an album I didn't think that much of.

Maybe I will totally change my mind later on. But right now the cd is a big disapointment. It makes me want to listen to Alice Childress or Boxing or something, and hear his voice overflowing with emotion.



The packaging for the cd is totally awesome, though! It's a hardcover book, with photographs of his wife/children, and lyrics on the pages. I tried to get some pictures of it, but they're pretty low quality.

Updating this has gotten a bit depressing lately. I don't mean to sound mopey, but when I go to update, the things I write about really don't seem like they're worth recording to me. Oh well. There are certainly worse things in the world then being boring!

I'm currently making the transition from vegetarian to vegan. I'm trying not to get too excited about it- my doctor wants to make sure I don't lose too much weight before I make the change permenant- but it's still a pretty exciting thing. Mostly, I'm just cutting out stuff with egg whites, but I don't know. I've wanted to do this for a long time, and I finally got the motivation to go through with this.

I had more to this entry, but I decided not to post it!

I'll sum it up for you: No sleep, Skype.

There was a story I started writing several months ago on the bus. I abandoned it, like I abandon just about everything else I write these days.

I have decided that I am going to track this story down, finish it, and post it on the interweb. Feelings of inadequacy be damned!

I'm mentioning it here so that people can harrass me about it if I chicken out and don't have it up in a few weeks.

I feel so strange lately. I wish I was better at talking to people.
