Okay, memorial done, illness done, flat to go.

So tired. Would be nice if my tastebuds were working properly and I felt able to eat something, too.


Which Torchwood Character Are You?
Your Result: Ianto Jones

You most resemble the team's composed, sarcastic general support. Passionate but excellent at hiding it under a reserved exterior, you care deeply about people and have a hard time letting go. The downside of keeping such a tight leash on your external emotions is that sometimes you lose control and have to let it all out. Competent and hard-working, you like to be on top of things.

And I don't like hot drinks and would rather have a sonic blaster...

Anyway. Work to do.

(Really need to work on the fic situation...)

Anyway. Stolen from [ profile] thornsilver who posts lots of weird and wonderful and very interesting things...

What Flavour Are You? I am a subtle taste, like Pine.I am a subtle taste, like Pine.

I am a quiet, fresh taste, almost more of a scent than a flavour. You will be aware of me, but not quite remember me without being reminded. Not that I'm boring; on the contrary, I'm just a little outside the ordinary. What Flavour Are You?

Apparently I was also almost Menthol, so here's that too:

What Flavour Are You? I taste like Menthol.I taste like Menthol.

I am refreshingly different; some people don't appreciate that. My sharp honesty gets up some people's noses, while others really enjoy it. I am something of an acquired taste. What Flavour Are You?

There we go. Sound like me, people?

... and I've realised something. While I was away at university, there was a gap here at home. A Lali-shaped gap.

And my mum and my brother have successfully filled the majority of it in without me.

You see, even before I left I was changing a bit. For years (and years) I never dared voice any of my opinions on anything because I didn't want to get into arguments (that got me into a lot of trouble at school, actually. I was constantly being told I had to have opinions - I did, I just wasn't vocal about them). I used to never really dare to go anywhere or do anything on my own. I very rarely made decisions for myself - if there was someone else around who had a strong idea what the group should do, then fine, let's do that... But Sixth Form and the summer afterwards (Dragon*Con!) kind of changed that a bit. I became a little more independent and so on.

And at uni that kept going. Much to [ profile] shadowbyrd's dismay, I'm sure, I took over a little bit in the flat and so on. We went places and did stuff and I cooked and cleaned and whatever, and whatever I did was my choice. Great. Fantastic. I can cope! I can pack a bag for an overnight trip or a few days or a week and I can find the trains and ask directions and all that jazz. Egad. I'm practically living my own life...

And now uni's over for the year and I'm back at home, and the only space available for me is the one that fit when I was sixteen or so.

Everything's falling back into the old, old routines. Mondays and Fridays mean archery again. Wednesdays mean Guides. I'll meet people in town, or go round the corner to [ profile] ranamag's house. Just like I used to.

And therein lies the problem. It's all very much as it used to be.

You see, back at the flat, at uni, Fridays meant Writer In A Drawer deadline.

Here, they don't.

So uh... Weekend just gone, I did the one thing I swore to high heaven and back that I would never, ever do. I defaulted. I dropped out of [ profile] writerinadrawer with not a bang but... well, silence, actually. I didn't remember about the deadline until... um... ten to eleven that night.

Great. Believe me, I feel very idiotic about that.

It doesn't help that I'm still not feeling entirely back to myself. I think I'd really prefer not to be sixteen again.

Particularly since my brother's doing his best to shove me back to that. I really must remember that next time he asks me what I think about something, he doesn't actually want to know. He wants me to agree with him, simply and plainly. Otherwise I'm opinionated, right? And if he asks me what a word means, or a detail about ancient history or weaponry or anything else that by pure chance I happen to know, if I actually tell him the answer then that's me showing off how much I think I'm an expert on everything.



On a side note, I took an interesting little online test the other day. Would you make a good 1930s husband or wife (according to your gender, naturally)?

Out of a hundred, I scored 39 for the wife test. Poor, apparently. Well, duh.

Then, for the heck of it, I took the husband test. 95. I'm practically the perfect 1930s man, it seems. With just one problem... ^_^'

I'm on the computer, typing up and editing the last part of Jack's Capture, having finally (temporarily) defeated the headache I've had since last Thursday. Just to let you know that I am doing some work.

Just 'cause.

I'm totally not procrastinating. Honest.

I'm relaxing, having completed my English coursework and handed it all in and everything. How wonderful. I'll put the story up here before long. (It's Beowulf. In space. ;) )

For now, I'm catching up on Bellasianna's memes. Which I keep being tagged for and not getting round to passing on. Tcheh.


Username meme )

Questionnaire )

Seven Songs Meme )

Another Questionnaire )

Right. That'll about do, I think. For the tagging? Anyone on my friends list who wants to can do any of these. I'm not going to force you, but hey, have fun. ;)

And just in case you want to do the questionnaires in the comments, I've screened them all. ^_^ Enjoy.

Well, you know. Never been that good at wooing women.

*snort* Though I'm apparently Mal, second. That's quite cool.

I blame lots of people for this. :D Mostly Shadowbyrd. And, you know, the random person I stole this quiz from. *nods*

Well now

Quizzes. Been a while since I've done these. ^_^ Blame Jayson. (AnneMcCaffreysite, Torchwood fan, Ianto obsessive... *glomps Jays* All in all, cool guy)

Your Blog Should Be Purple

You're an expressive, offbeat blogger who tends to write about anything and everything.
You tend to set blogging trends, and you're the most likely to write your own meme or survey.
You are a bit distant though. Your blog is all about you - not what anyone else has to say.

No way! Green is good. It's always been green, it stays green!

You Have Low Self Esteem 20% of the Time

Which can be translated to mean, you have high self-esteem and a healthy sense of self worth.
You believe in yourself, and you know how to be the real you. You love yourself, imperfections and all.

That's quite reassuring, considering that half the time when I'm in here I just whine about stuff. And the whole getting-killed-in-dreams thing...

Your Depression Level: 0%

You aren't depressed, and you probably already knew that.
Like everyone else, you have ups and downs.
But unlike most people, you've mastered keeping your mood stable.

Well. I must be in a good mood tonight. ^_^ (Fanfic! 12 thousand words and counting!)

You Are 40% Feminine, 60% Masculine

You are in touch with your masculine side.
You are not overly sensitive and not easily moved.
Occasionally, though, something will get through and touch your heart!

*snerk* Fairly even... But yeah. ^_^ *laughs* I've been writing too much from a male character's perspective, then.

Your Brain is 73% Female, 27% Male

Your brain leans female
You think with your heart, not your head
Sweet and considerate, you are a giver
But you're tough enough not to let anyone take advantage of you!

That actually surprises me a bit. But I think the questions were a little odd - more personality rather than actual brain settings. *shrug* Not that I'm complaining. ^_^

Now I'm gone to watch repeats of Torchwood. Tata!

*giggles* It's the 31st today, and I'm stealing more quizzes from Ranamag (Clarity!) just 'cause. Thought I'd edit them in here and keep them all together, you know.

You're a Tiger!

You've really earned your stripes. People like to sing about your
eyes, which some find to be thrilling. You're rather fond of Detroit, as well as
half the universities and high schools all across America. When people want to calm
you down a bit, they use the word "easy". Overall, you're grrrrreat!

Take the Animal Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.

Whoot! Although that does make me allergic to myself. *stops breathing*

You're the United Nations!

Most people think you're ineffective, but you are trying to
completely save the world from itself, so there's always going to be a long
way to go.  You're always the one trying to get friends to talk to each
other, enemies to talk to each other, anyone who can to just talk instead of
beating each other about the head and torso.  Sometimes it works and sometimes
it doesn't, and you get very schizophrenic as a result.  But your heart
is in the right place, and sometimes also in New York.

You are an assassin.
That means you are a proffessional and do your job without mixing any emotions in it. In your life you have probably been hurt many times and have gotten some mental scars. This results in you being distant from people. Though many think that you are evil, you are not. What you really are is a person, trying to forget your pain and past.

You are the person who never seems to care and that is why being an assassin fits you good. At least, that's what people think. Even if you don't care that much for your victims, you still have the ability to care and to generally feel. It is not lost, just a little forgotten.

In crowds you tend to not get to noticed, and dress in black or other discreet colours. You don't like being in the spotlight and wish people would just leave you alone. But once you do get close to someone you have a hard time letting go and get real down if you lose him/her.

Same as Tinywings 'n' Sneasel!

You Are From Neptune

You are dreamy and mystical, with a natural psychic ability.
You love music, poetry, dance, and (most of all) the open sea.
Your soul is filled with possibilities, and your heart overflows with compassion.
You can be in a room full of friendly people and feel all alone.
If you don't get carried away with one idea, your spiritual nature will see you through anything.

I steal so many quizzes from Tinywings' journal. And I'm pleased with this one - even the negatives:

Your wings are DRAGON wings. Massive and covered in scales, they shimmer with strength and magic. They are the most obvious display of your power - though it runs equally throughout your heart and mind. You are uncompromising and grave, with a profound sense of justice. You have firm ideas about what is right and what is wrong and set out to fix what problems you can. You realize that you are more capable of dealing with life and evil than most, and as such you see it as your responsibility to protect those who cannot defend themselves. You have existed since antiquity and as such you are wise far beyond your years in this lifetime. While you strive for fairness and peace, if someone should steal from your cave of treasure (though not all that glitters is gold) or compromise the happiness of you or one who is close to you - they have signed their death warrant. You have a mighty vengeance and will unleash it upon such people immediately and mercilessly. Arguing with you is rarely back down and are known for holding firm in your beliefs. Sometimes you feel intensely burdened with the troubles of others...acting as a Guardian can get so wearisome. But you never give see it as your life's mission. Often very introverted, you can be so's scary. Such a combination of intelligence, creativity, power, beauty, and magic is often intimidating to those around you - who are also unlikely to understand you. Arrogant, proud, overserious, and sometimes a bit greedy or obsessed with whatever treasure you choose to have enchanted people for centuries, and will continue to do so.

I took another Quiz, from Shadowbyrd's livejournal. This is what I got:

You have a free soul! As all the souls go, yours is the most free-spirited and adventurous. You like camping, hiking, or interaction with other people. You're a social butterfly, but not because of your style, but because of your willingness to communicate with everyone. You probably have close friends who can rely on you because you always seem to know whats going on in the world. You love music and are free-spirited and someone fun to be around. A born leader and great explorer-dont ever change-the world needs more people like you.

I'm not so willing to communicate with everyone, I'm not a social butterfly, I'm not that much fun to be around (I'm fairly boring, actually... :D) and I'm not too sure about being a born leader. Free spirited, camping, hiking and the like, sure! But...

Ah, whatever. ^_^
