The (Cyber) Bag of Weasels

bread and puppet




"About as much fun as a bag of weasels"...when I first saw this Irish adage, it made me think of the life of a writer: sometimes perilous, sometimes painful, certainly interesting. My paper journal has always been called "The Bag of Weasels." This is the Bag of Weasels' online home.

Life Update and Wicked Long Meme!

Well, Bobby is away until Thursday, leaving me home to be "bored" by myself. I say "bored" because the second I clicked off the AWAY message on YIM, I had four IMs, so I've not been very bored tonight!

(Thanks to the friends who have so kindly kept me company!)

I will be on YIM again tomorrow, though probably a little later, since I need to get some things done around the apartment. Then, on Thursday (which I just typed as Turdsday for some reason), we will be leaving to go "down the ocean, hon!" the moment that I get home from work. For that reason, I will be posting "By the Light of Roses" a day early, on Wednesday evening at some point, probably late since I am having dinner and going to the movies with my mother- and sister-in-law.

A few minutes before I left for work today, the network finally came back. But in the meantime, I managed to pawn some off the warrants off on the officers today, convincing them to "start them and let me know what needs to be run." Which means that they will check the address like they always do and forget about them, like they always do, and I won't be stuck with gobs of catching up. I hope.

So I've seen this ginormously long meme just about everywhere but wasn't tempted to do it until my sister did it. I guess it's like being a kid and hating a toy until your sibling gets a hold of it....

(Btw, since this confused me, the red underlines mean that I answered "yes." The blue X means "no.")

(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

I miss somebody right now.  (Bobby is away until Thursday) I don't watch much TV these days. I own lots of books.
× I wear glasses or contact lenses. I love to play video games.  (Some....) × I've tried marijuana(I work in law enforcement. Mine and Bobby's jobs both are in part contingent on not having had fun as a kid. :^P)
× I've watched porn movies.  (Sadly, no, I'm a pr0n virgin...but I've written pr0n stories!) I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship.  (I'm sure HE would say so....) I believe honesty is usually the best policy.
I curse sometimes.  (Erm...more like "a lot"....) I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.
* * * * *
× I have broken someone's bones(No...but my sister still has scars from a fight we had when I was 12....) × I have a secret that I am ashamed to reveal. × I hate the rain(I'd rather not be in it, but rain gives life, so I recognize the necessity.)
I'm paranoid at times.  (I'm involved online. Everyone online is a bit freaky and paranoid, I think.) × I would get plastic surgery if it were 100% safe, free of cost, and scar-free. I need/want money right now.  (More money is never a bad thing. It would pay for SCUBA lessons!)
× I love sushi(I've only ever had the vegetarian kind.) I talk really, really fast.  (...because I'm afraid that if I don't, people will stop listening.) × I have fresh breath in the morning.  (Probably not. Ask Bobby!)

I currently like/love someone. × I have no idea what I want to do for the rest of my life.  (I have too many ideas about what I want to do with the rest of my life!) × I want to have children in the future.  (Not at all.)
I have changed a diaper before. × I've called the cops on a friend before. × I'm not allergic to anything.  (Unfortunately, I'm allergic to dogs and cats.)
I have a lot to learn.  (I never want to stop learning.) × I am shy around the opposite sex. × I'm online 24/7, even as an away message.

× I walk barefoot wherever I can.  (I would but I'm afraid of stepping on things and getting an infected wound. (Really.)) × I have jumped off a bridge. I love sea turtles.

× I hate office jobs(I love office jobs, especially when they're boring enough to let me write all day!) × I went to college out of state. × I am adopted.
× I am a pyro. I have thrown up from crying too much.  (...and a piece of green pepper came out of my nose! o.O) I have been intentionally hurt by people that I loved.
× I fall for the worst people. I adore bright colours. × I usually like covers better than originals.

I have ridden/owned a horse. I still have every journal I've ever written in. I talk in my sleep.  (...or so I've been told.)

× I have a tattoo(No, but I want a Star of Feanor on my left shoulder.) × I can't stand at LEAST one person that I work with.  (I think that "can't stand" is a little strong, but there's people of whom I'm not fond at work, sure.) × I am a caffeine junkie.  (I actively try to avoid it to prevent that actuality....)
I am completely tree-huggy spiritual, and I'm not ashamed at all. × If I knew I would get away with it, I would commit at least one murder(I'm a pacifist.) × I will collect anything, and the more nonsensical, the better.  (Nope. Just fridge magnets from places we visit and those squashed pennies!)

× I sleep with so many stuffed animals, I can hardly fit on my bed.  (Nope, just Nelyo (the unicorn) on occasion.) × If it weren't for having to see other people naked, I'd live in a nudist colony. × I have terrible teeth.
× I hate my toes(I love my feet, but they are atrociously ugly!) I did this meme even though I wasn't tagged by the person who took it before me. I have more friends on the internet than in real life.
× I have lived in either three different states or countries. I am extremely flexible.  (Yep, I can proudly still lift my foot above my head to the back *and* side!) × I love hugs more than kisses.
I want to own my own business. × I smoke. I spend way too much time on the computer than on anything else.
Nobody has ever said I'm normal. Sad movies, games, and the like can cause a trickle of tears every now and then.  (...but I usually do my best to hide it!) × I am proficient in the use of many types of firearms and combat weapons.  (No. I can't stand guns. To quote the band 311, "Guns are for p*ssies.")
× I like the way women look in stylized men's suits. I don't like it when people are unpleased or seem unpleased with me. I have been described as a dreamer or likely to have my head up in the clouds.
× I have played strip poker with someone else before.  (Isn't "with someone else" a bit redundant? Or maybe you can play strip poker online with yourself? :^D) × I have had emotional problems for which I have sought professional help. I believe in ghosts and the paranormal.  (Paranormal activity isn't something in which you "believe." It is something that exists and cannot be explained. *facepalm*)
I can't stand being alone. I have at least one obsession at any given time. × I weigh myself, pee/poo, and then weigh myself again.  (WTF?! LMFAO!!)
× I consistently spend way too much money on obsessions-of-the-moment. × I'm a judgmental asshole(Not at all. Sometimes I'm too tolerant.) × I'm a HUGE drama-queen.

× I am a Libertarian. × I can speak more than one language(Not fluently....) × I can fall asleep even if the whole room is as noisy as it can be.
I would rather read than watch TV. × I like reading fact more than fiction. × I have pulled an all-nighter on an assignment I was given a month to do.
× I have no piercings(I have one in each ear, but I can no longer put in earrings because of my stupid blood/injury phobia.) × I have spent the night in a train station or other public place. × I have been so upset over my physical gender that I cried.
× I once spent Christmas completely alone because there was a miscommunication on which parent was supposed to have me that night. × There have been times when I have wondered "Why was I born?" and may/may not have cried over it. I like most animals better than most people.
× I own a collection of retro games consoles(Nope. Just original NES!) The thought of physical exercise makes me shiver.  (...with delight!) × I have hit someone with a dead fish(WTF?)
I am compulsively honest. × I was born with a congenital birth defect that has never been repaired. × I have danced topless in front of dozens of complete strangers.
× I have gone from wishing I was a girl to revelling in being a boy to feeling like a girl again in the span of five minutes, and not cared a whit for my actual sex. × I am unashamedly bisexual, and have different motivations for my desires for different genders. × I sometimes won't sleep a whole night or eat a whole day because I forget to.  (Not forget so much as being too lazy or too involved to.)
× I find it impossible to get to sleep without some kind of music on. I dislike milk. I obsessively wash my hands.  (...sort of. I have to wash my hands after coming in from outside, before touching any sort of food, and after handling a lot of paper.)
I always carry something significant around with me.  (My first Silmarillion, in which I have tucked love notes and such from Bobby!) × Sometimes I'd rather wear a wig in day-to-day life than use my own hair. I've pushed myself to become more self-aware and thereby more aware of others.
× Even though I live on my own I still cry sometimes because I miss my mother. × I hand wrote all the HTML tags in this document.  (Ummm...did it require HTML tags?) I've liked something which a majority of people claimed was either bad or weird.
× I have been clinically dead for a brief period of time. Instead of feeling sympathy/empathy with people and their problems, I simply become annoyed.  (...sometimes.) × I participate/have participated in auto drag races and won.
× I do not 'get' most comedy acts. I don't think strippers are money-greedy or slutty for dancing.  (To each his/her own.) I don't like to chew gum.
× I am obsessed with history/historical things and can't wait for someone to build a time machine so I can be the first to use it. × I can never remember for the life of me where I parked the car(I'm the one in the marriage expected to remember because Bobby never can!) × I had the TEEN ANGST thing going for at least 2-3 years.  (Not. At. All.)
I wish people would be more empathic and honest with each other. × I play Dungeons and Dragons weekly.  (...but I would like to!) I love to sing.  (...but I suck at it!)
× I want to live in my mother's basement when I grow up. × I have a custom-built computer. × I want to create a certain someone's babies, even though there's a 0% possiblity of ever achieving it.
× I would be in a relationship with one of my pets if they were human.  (Do muses count? :^D) I've gone skinny-dipping. I've performed in three plays.  (...in elementary school!)
I enjoy burritos.  (Mexican food is fartfully delicious in and of itself.) I'm Irish and loving it.  (Only 12.5% Irish, but I'm fine with all of my many ancestries!) I have a thing for redheads.  (One word: Maedhros.)
× I am a twin! Most of the times, I'd rather do something intellectual instead of doing something generically 'fun'. × Once I set out to finish something, I always stay at it until it is completed before I move on to something else.
× I wish there were a way to erase past mistakes.  (No...I'd be afraid of inadvertantly erasing the blessings in my life.) × I sleep more than 12 hours a day. × I wish I could be prouder of what I've accomplished, but it's never enough.
× I need more time to myself. × I wish I was more open-minded. × I hope that I go really prematurely grey.
I download songs from the internet.  (...but I pay for them.) × I've just reenacted chapter 58 of Death Note with my best friend.  (WTF is Death Note?) × I say random things to freak people out.
× I'm still a little mad about the ending of Death Note. × I love playing Truth or Dare. × I love listening to slow music, but I hate singing to it.
× Music helps me remember that I am not alone. Playing my favorite sport makes me temporarily forget my problems. I think this survey is particularly long.
I prefer my LJ friends to my real-life ones.  (...some of them.) × I can only hate someone that I love. × I've ordered an extra two shots of espresso to an Americano at Starbucks.
  • I say "bored" because the second I clicked off the AWAY message on YIM, I had four IMs, so I've not been very bored tonight!

    See? You should be online more often!! *wink wink nudge nudge* (You can leave Finrod on the balcony)

    Does writing left handed and using sharp objects (scissors, knives...) with your right count as ambidextrous?

    Hehe, turtles..

    Oh dear, I'm off to (try to) write!
    • I would like to be online more often! But 99% of my computer time happens at work and there's no YIM at work.... :((

      And why leave Finrod on the balcony? He's so much fun! :^D

      Does writing left handed and using sharp objects (scissors, knives...) with your right count as ambidextrous?

      I would say "yes"....

      Hehe, turtles..

      Oh, dear. Turtles don't always work, btw, as a deterrent to sex. *wink wink*

      Oh dear, I'm off to (try to) write!

      Maedhros/Finrod/Meryth? :^D *hides*
      • But 99% of my computer time happens at work and there's no YIM at work.... :((

        *tear* And now we can't even comment-chat. Stoopid guvment compooters. :(

        And why leave Finrod on the balcony? He's so much fun! :^D

        Because he sleeps with furry mortals? Ok, I guess we can amend that to No Alcohol for Finrod. ;)

        Turtles don't always work, btw, as a deterrent to sex. *wink wink*

        *snerk*

        Maedhros/Finrod/Meryth? :^D *hides*

        Hehe, no...Not quite for lack of trying (sort of). Caranthir/Turgon? Maaaaybe.
  • (Sadly, no, I'm a pr0n virgin...but I've written pr0n stories!)

    I saw my first porn movie at the age of 23---"Deep Throat." I remember feeling totally embarrassed. But hub and I watched it a while back and howled with laughter...and then had hot snuggle bunnies. So I highly recommend it.

    (No...but my sister still has scars from a fight we had when I was 12....)

    I stabbed my little brother in the hand with a paring knife when I was 11 and he was 9. It was an accident, but I had been screwing around, cutting up creepy crawlers (remember those? Naw, you're too young) and his hand sort of got in the way of the knife. Boy howdy did I get in trouble that night.
    • Bobby and I own a pr0n--on VHS and all!--that we got out of the bargain bin because I've never seen one and that seems pretty unacceptable given that...well, it's me! But we've yet to watch it and we've had it for two years now.

      The only creepy-crawlers I remember were those automatic vacuuming systems that people used to clean their pools. And I got into trouble too, for tearing my poor sister's arm to pieces with my fingernails! Though, to be fair, she was trying to hit me over the head with a tennis racket....
      • Creepy Crawlers were little rubbery plasticky weird bugs and spiders & stuff that you baked in the oven. You poured weird colored rubber goo into metal bug molds and baked 'em and, voila: creepy crawlers. Disgusting, really, but we loved 'em. You can't find them these days because what kind of parent would want their kids poor rubber goo into metal molds and baking them in screaming hot ovens? Sheeeeee....
    • Oh, and I trust that since you're LJing, that your hubby is doing well? :)
      • He's doing great! This is our last night in Tijauna. It's also our 9th wedding anniversary so I need to get offline and cuddle with him. *hugs*
  • × I have hit someone with a dead fish. (WTF?)

    I assumed this was an almost reference to Monty Python. I could be wrong... ;-)

    ✓ I love sea turtles.

    This *so* reminded me of 'Finding Nemo'!! I almost popped it in the DVD player after I finished the survey... LOL!
    • Oh, Finding Nemo! I've always wanted an LJ icon of the little octopus that says, "You made me ink...."

      I have an abiding love for all sea creatures, even jellyfish! Though I hope never to be stung by one all the same!
      • The turtles are my most favorite, of course. And I do have one icon of Bubbles, the fish in the tank who love bubbles... LOL!

        I love sea creatures... I just don't eat them beyond shrimp and scallops (must needs be wrapped in bacon) and crab salad (which is often the imitation stuff anyway).
  • You're going away to have fun this week-end! Squeee! That's surely going to make up for Bobby's absence.

    I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship. (I'm sure HE would say so....)

    O_O! He, he!

    I like the way that I look. (I could look worse....)

    *snort* Well, if you put it that way... we ALL could! :)

    I think Halloween is awesome because you get free candy. (Halloween is my favorite holiday but not so much for the candy. I'm a confectioner; I can have candy whenever I want.)

    *pouts* Lucky you... But then, even if I could make candy as awesome as yours, I'd probably be too lazy to get off my ass and actually make it.

    I love my job(s). (...because I can write and screw off all day!)

    Ah, now if only I could find myself a job like that!

    I have a tattoo. (No, but I want a Star of Feanor on my left shoulder.)

    OMG! That's exactly what I want: the Star of Feanor and Feanaro written in Tengwar somewhere on my lower abs. Sweet!

    I have a thing for redheads. (One word: Maedhros.)

    *grins* Really? I never would have guessed.

    Ya know, it's no surprise that, perusing your answers, I kept going "Me too, me too!" most of the time. :)
    • You're going away to have fun this week-end! Squeee! That's surely going to make up for Bobby's absence.

      I know! Yay! Though I've discovered that my exhaustion last night was less YIM-overdose and more some sort of strange virus deciding to pay me a visit and make me shiver and ache all day...and not in a pleasant way either! ;) So I'm hoping to dispatch of that before the weekend!

      *pouts* Lucky you... But then, even if I could make candy as awesome as yours, I'd probably be too lazy to get off my ass and actually make it.

      Yep. Sounds like me lately! I haven't made candy since...Mother's Day. I've made a couple of new and exciting ice cream flavors, though, so I feel a little bit excused. ;)

      But believe it or not, the best way to develop a hatred for candy is by making it. Around the holidays, my apartment smells of either chocolate, peanut butter, or caramel almost constantly. And staring into the depths of a double boiler filled with chocolate will do you in too! It's a candy overdose, I guess. Anyway, I rarely eat candy, my own or otherwise.

      Ah, now if only I could find myself a job like that!

      I would give all of my LJ friends a job like mine, if I could. Think of all the fun we'd have!

      OMG! That's exactly what I want: the Star of Feanor and Feanaro written in Tengwar somewhere on my lower abs. Sweet!

      Hey, that's awesome! The Star of Feanor was actually Bobby's idea. A few years ago, we were floating in his parents' pool and discussing how we would both like small tattoos someday. (He wants a hammerhead shark on his shoulder; he's going to get it as his reward for getting his Open Water SCUBA certification!) Only I didn't know what I wanted; I didn't want something like every other girl has. (A tramp-stamp, I've heard them called. That made me chuckle!) Bobby said, "Why don't you get a Star of Feanor?" and this was me: o.O. Oh, and then I was forced to concede that my husband is a genius!

      If he does in fact reward himself with a shark for SCUBA certification, then I might get mine then too. We'll see.... *is slightly skerred*

      *grins* Really? I never would have guessed.

      Though it seems that of the oldest four Feanorions, Maedhros is the subject of my stories the least. How weird is that?

      Ya know, it's no surprise that, perusing your answers, I kept going "Me too, me too!" most of the time. :)

      I'm not surprised! You, me, and Jenni form a triangle of insanity between Toronto, Baltimore, and Romania! :^D

      (Although I find myself hoping that you weren't nodding along to the one about the green pepper coming out of my nose.... :^P)
  • You don't like milk? I'm addicted to milk. I go completely cranky if I can't have my glass of cold milk in the morning. But I only like whole milk that's completely pasteurized. It may sound absurd but I can't stand it when my milk tastes like cow. ;)
    • Nope, even as a wee lass, I wouldn't drink white milk. Now chocolate milk I like fine, but if the chocolate is weak or settles to the bottom...bleh. >:Þ

      I don't even pour milk on my cereal. Nopes. I eat it dry.

      But I only like whole milk that's completely pasteurized. It may sound absurd but I can't stand it when my milk tastes like cow. ;)

      It doesn't sound absurd at all! But then, I'm pretty sure that over here, it's illegal to sell milk that is not completely pasteurized. Though 2% milk seems to be the most popular by a wide margin, and whole milk is harder to come by.
