Ack! I've been meme'd!

8 facts. Did you know...?

I've been tagged by pat_ace87! Let's try this...

Each blogger starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

* Bloggers that are tagged need to write on their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
* At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

1. My favourite word is 'Vesuvius'! For those that don't know, this is the volcano that destroyed Pompeii.

2. I have developed a strange phobia of light fittings, after every light fitting in my old house tried to drop on my head and kill me. The fan cover in the shower had a go at me too.

3. Everyone on my friends list would already know that I'm an avid anime fan, but you might not know that I have an especially bad case of chronic OST collection. Not so much character albums or openings and endings, but more the background music for just about any anime or game I come across. Sometimes even shows I haven't seen (I like Yuki Kaijura, but I'm not suffering through Madlax just for her music.) x_x

4. I've been to every Disneyland in the world! Even Euro Disney. But then they had to build Disneyland in Hong Kong, ruining my great achievement. -______- (<<Doesn't even like Disney that much).

5. I lived in a share house with eight other people for a year. I managed to go the whole twelve months without talking to one of them once, ever, unless you count this one time I nodded hello in acknowledgement. I'm not entirely certain if he ever even learnt my name.

6. The very first anime and manga I ever read/watched was Oh My Goddess, some twelve or thirteen years ago now. Yet somehow, I am still reading this series today. Hurry up and finish, Kosuke Fujishima!

7. I really like walking. I once walked forty kilometres for no reason at all. Though admittedly the last ten was spent looking for a bus home. :P

8. When I had all four of my wisdom teeth out, I distracted myself from my misery by spending an entire week speaking Huttese. Only one person realised that this was intentional.

Now to pass the disease meme on! Let's see... faire_estela, kaorismash, whiterose0328, umarekawareru, missselarne, miminekochan, nerfracket, and roseofthine! Now it's your turn. (Apologies if anyone has already been meme'd, I did try to check first.)

Your lighting experiences amuses me. It shouldn't, but it does. So does your housing experiencing. If I ever live with you, you will not get away without saying at least ten words an hour. :3

HUTTESE? *looks up*

And Kaori's true sadistic nature is revealed! ^_^

Ten words an hour? That's crazy talk! Can I just say a whole lot at once and then leave it for the rest of day? O_o

I admittedly didn't speak in proper Huttese, rather than just repeating and mixing up all the lines I remembered from Star Wars. You would have thought people would have twigged at the 'Solo' or 'Jedi', but no.

*pokes* Now is your turn, okay?

Sadistic? Me? D:0 My halo is offended. 0:|


They're probably not Star Wars fans! :P

*pokepokepoke* ALRIGHTY. 'bout time I did a RL post actually. |D;

You win at many, many levels. I love you for this. =D

*hugs fellow Star Wars fan* I hereby challenge you to write an entire LJ post in Yoda-speak. :P

Jan. 18th, 2008 12:41 pm (UTC)
>DDDD I ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE. Like Yoda I'll have nothing to say, but I'll say said nothing in a very fancy way. Just like him.

(I'd challenge you to convert Kaori to SW, but it would be a bit unfair. I've been trying to for ages...)

You've been to all the Disney parks! *_* YOU ARE NOW MY HERO!! (<--Is crazy Disney fan)

Vesuvius looks all calm now. It's creepy.

But it's gorgeous. *_______* If I still have my vacation photos...

Five is hilarious. xD

I've only ever been to the one in my state. 8D;; (concerning Disneyland, I mean. xD)

You counted? xDD I can't calculate kilometers (or miles) when I walk. .___.;;

I guess I could calculate feet, if I had my pedometer, but. xD;; -lazy-

Huttese? What is that? *______* Is it beautiful?

OST? How interesting. xD

But I didn't know you were an avid anime fan. 8D;;

I've already done it, but~ 8D

-goes to do it again-
Jan. 20th, 2008 05:19 am (UTC)
Oops, sorry, I even recall seeing it. :S

Didn't count the kilometres while walking - rather, looked up my route on a map afterwards and figured it out from there, at which point I was like 'no wonder I'm still tired'. XP It would be a useful skill, though to calculate distance in such a way.

Huttese is the language spoken by Jabba the Hutt from Star Wars. As such, I probably wouldn't call it beatiful. It was just the easiest thing to manage with a swollen face. ()^-^()

What, the fact that I recognised Lucky Star didn't give me away? :D
Jan. 20th, 2008 07:29 am (UTC)
Don't worry~ It was fun doing it a second time. >3

Ahaha nicee.

...I don't know Star Wars, though. xD;;

And nopeee. Almost everyone I know likes Lucky Star (though most, I think, prefer Haruhi). No doubt it's Sama's fault, but...x.o;;

I assumed it was similar elsewhere.
