Comment to this post, and I will list five things I associate with you, They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your LJ (or just add a reply back to me). Other people (including me) can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

The words given to me by [ profile] jandjsalmon were:

China Plates - Hm. Though I'm not sure why Jessica associates this with me, I admit that I do enjoy a well set table. I have 4... maybe five sets of China? Nolan got me a set for an anniversary, I got some at an auction, I got one set when we got married (Ralph Lauren Clearwater) and I use Fiestaware for everyday. My favorite is the cobalt blue. And I also have bits and bobs from other services; some from my grandmother, a few pieces from Nolan's grandmother, some I bought at restaurant supply stores and some Tom made in a pottery class. It's all awesome.

Costumes - I love making them, I love wearing them. I costume semi-professionally, being that I get paid for my work, but not on a regular basis. It's something that I really enjoy, putting together a look for a show. I do have to love the show to do a good job, though. But when I do a job, I do it thoroughly and well.

Entertaining - I guess this goes hand in hand with the first one. Basically, I love feeding people. I do it fairly regularly. On china plates.

Boys (meaning your three) - I'm married to a guy, and I have two sons. I often say that God knew what he was doing, giving me all boys, because I'm enough girl for any household. I get along better with men than with women, as a general rule, so it's a good thing that I'm surrounded by them.

Drama - This is drama, not in the negative sense of the word, as in, "This is too much drama for me." My drama is good drama. I have a BFA in Theatre Arts Performance, and I teach acting at a private academy. I'm also a produced playwright, and when I write little scenarios here on livejournal, I tag them as 'drama.' I try to save the drama for the stage, though. I try to only be dramatic for comic relief.

So. That's that. Want to play?

All you girls with daughters, or fancy yourself a princess, go to this site. It's fun. I just spent twenty minutes making myself into a slightly chubby, annoyed princess.

Art imitates life, it does.

I Write Like by Mémoires, journal software. Analyze your writing!

In the interest of being all scientifical, I entered in a few different samples to the "I write like" website. For my current WIP piece of fluffy fanfiction, I got J.K.Rowling. Well enough, I thought, I am trying to emulate her style, there.

For my novel and three other original short stories, I got David F. Wallace. *points up* I have to admit, I googled him. If the website is going to say I write like the dude, I want to know who he is. His best known novel is a mix of hysterical realism, satire and comedy, so I think that pretty much hits it on the nose for me, generally speaking.

HOWEVER, when I put in the last thing I wrote for church - a piece on the Song of Solomon, Mr. Website spat out Chuck Palahniuk. Chuck Palahniuk, author of 'Fight Club.'

Song of Solomon, Fight Club. Song of Solomon, Fight Club. I thought about it for a looooong time (almost 45 seconds!) and I don't see it. Sorry.

And crap, I talked about Fight Club, so.... *looks around for Brad Pitt*

(That'd be cool, wouldn't it? If you broke rules one and two and he showed up? Like some sort of bruised and battered fairy fightmother.)

And then, for a play I co-wrote a few years ago, about superheroes in mediation and counseling, I got Agatha Christie.


So, in short, I don't support this site 100%. I'd say I support it 37%.

But it was kinda fun to analyze it all, nonetheless.

I tagged Mala, ([ profile] 13oct), too, but she got cut off by my awesome photography skillz.
Last Friday, when I was driving the kids to school, I mentioned that we'd be going to a Valentine's dance. I was not prepared for Ethan's reply.

Ethan: Ohhhh! There'll be girls. And cupcakes. And girls.


I'm really unsure as to which he was more excited about. I am most certainly NOT ready for middle school.

In other news, we've made a list of things that the boys are responsible for, with consequences for when the individual items aren't met. Does this seem fair, in your opinion? Other mothers of children on the f-list, I'd appreciate you weighing in.

3. How do you come up with fresh ideas for d/g fic? )

Very thought provoking, Sylvia. Thanks for the questions. :D

Picture requests. Comment with what you'd like me to take a picture of and I'll be your little slave and go take a pic. You can ask for anything. Go. Comment.  Enable me, please.

Also, Write or Die by Dr. Wicked (putting the PROD in productivity) is a writing aid that ranges from helpful ( a friendly window pop up), to mildly irritating (a horrible song plays when you pause), to downright horrifying ( I watched my words disappear one by one when I stopped typing).  I'm glad I couldn't get the electric shock function to work, now.  In any case, it made me bang out 2,000 words, so there you have it.  It works.

Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

My words from [ profile] maureen were:

1. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their livejournal.    Pfft.  Do it if you want to.

2. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

My wallpaper... )3. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!

I read Pioneer Woman's Blog, and one of her regular guest cooks is Pastor Ryan, who also has cooking how-to posts on his blog.  One of his last posts had free wallpapers that I thought were pretty.  So I snagged.  I normally have family photos on my laptop and desktop, though.

So.  I have a question for the f-list.

I've seen memes that have gone around asking "How did you get your livejournal name?" (When she first found my journal, my mom asked me if I thought I was the Goddess of the Underworld, and I was literally stunned into silence for a minute.) But I know lots of your username stories already. What I really want to know is the story behind YOUR name. Like for instance, back in the seventies, my mom picked the nice, old-fashioned name of Carrie, like the baby in the Little House books. Then, the year after I was born, Stephen King comes out with the horror book  about the telekinetic girl that ruins her senior prom because she'd had it with kids teasing her. (I totally don't blame her.  They had it coming.)  To make matters worse, a movie came out three years later.  When you do a google image search of my name, that awful picture of Sissy Spacek in a pretty silk dress with pig's blood spattered all over it comes up.  Ew.  Ew, ew, ew.

I was gonna link to the picture, but... GROSS.  Y'all don't want to see that.  I can't believe I just typed 'pig's blood.'


Anyway, that icky pic comes up, and then to a lesser extent I get links to Carrie Underwood, Carrie Bradshaw, and Carrie Miss California, who totally pissed Perez Hilton off, bless her little heart.

Carrie means 'strong woman' I think, and is a derivative of my mom's name, Carolyn.  Her story is that she didn't pick it because of that, she just liked the name.

What I'm getting at f-list, is this:  Where did you get your name?  What's the story on it? 

And if you're weird about using rl names, you can tell me your username one again.  I love a good story.  Please?

...a [ profile] lyndsiefenele meme.

Spread some spring cheer to your neighbors in LJ land. Maybe you have can make some icons, or tell a fun story, write a poem, or sing a song. If you're feeling cheery, share it!

I'm all out of fun stories, but I tried to make icons this afternoon, with varying degrees of success.

    Name plate              Sweetheart

If you'd like one, I'd be happy to personalize it for you, unless your name actually is Carrie, in which case you just go nuts.

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Is anyone interested? It might be mildly entertaining. )

And I know, I've been miserable with replying to posts and commenting lately. But a personal post is brewing. And, of course, more cooking posts. So off, I go, back into my cave. *waves*
Now behind a cut! )

I have AJ's birthday party today, and I would do just about anything to get out of it and go back to sleep. The show had an awesome opening night and an even more awesome cast party, that Nolan and I even took the boys to. SO much fun!

But birthday parties. Le blech.
Meme fun )
