Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] joshuwain who got it from [livejournal.com profile] bigtig...

Grab the book nearest you. Right now.

* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence and these instructions.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST book.

Mine: Among flippant people, the Joke is always assumed to have been made. The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewis

Disclaimer: This could be the sixth sentence, as the page started with a sentence that began on the previous page.

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.

Here are the words [livejournal.com profile] equusmaximus gave me:

Well, deer. And the related hoofers thereof. On Furrymuck I'm Sorien, who is normally an antelope-ish centaur. I've always liked centaurs, and Sori was made due to that and my desire to do something a little bit different on FM. :)

One of my primary beverages of choice, the others being beer and milk. I've been drinking tea since I was about 8 years old, and my main brand is Lipton- note that Lipton, at least in the US, is JUST tea leaves, no fillers or flavors. I can't vouch for elsewhere though. It isn't the best tea, but I like it. I generally prefer strong black teas (China and Russian Blacks, Assams and similar), but I do drink green teas from time to time. I don't use sweeteners or anything else- just the tea and hot water. And I drink a LOT- if it's cold out I can go through 15 cups or more in an evening. The warmer it is, the less I drink, though I never quite reach zero intake.

L. Frank Baum's lasting creation. Mostly I just like the original movie, especially the Art Deco and Modern styling of the sets. I really need to read the books!

As I said under the Cervid entry, I like centaurs. I've played several equine-based centaurs in role playing games, with the first being my fighter Dior. His name came from the SIlmarillon, and he was supposed to have been a Grey Elf who'd been changed into a centaur who was furred over the entire body; not my most imaginative creation. He ended up as a sort-of scholar and collector of knowledge. I had several more over the years, notably Roland (a great-grandchild of Dior), Lathan (in [livejournal.com profile] joshuwain's Twin Empires world), Several Avatar characters usually named Mara, and a feline centaur, also named Mara, in Jim Felling's PAWN campaign... Oy. Those were years back. Now the only active centaur I have is Sorien, but I likely will create and play another someday.

... What can be said? I've a lot of friends, Many on line and many "RL"; I DO count [livejournal.com profile] equusmaximus as a friend, though the odds of a face-to-face meeting in the near future is pretty damned slim- they're in Canada and getting settled in a new home and business(es), and I simply don't have the cash (or the passport!) to travel all that much. What I count as a friend is a person I can talk to, have fun with, and who can take the time to understand (and accept) me as ME. As who I am, not who they think I should be. A friend is there for you when you need them, if they can be without ruining their own lives, and is someone who you'd be there for when they are in need. Friends stand up for each other, understand that bad moods happen, that stupid things get said occasionally, and the nobody is perfect; a friend will mend the fences when they make mistakes or hurt those they know whether on purpose or by accident, and will forgive when the reverse occurs. Friends will also overlook the foibles that people possess... To a point.

And that's the five words. :)

Meme thingie! )
realsorien: (Default)
Here's a meme-thingie Several people I know have done, including [livejournal.com profile] danshrugs and [livejournal.com profile] feezlekahn.

Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test...

HFPS - The Humanitarian

Humanity, Foreground, Big Picture, and Shape

You perceive the world with particular attention to humanity. You focus on what's in front of you (the foreground) and how that fits into the larger picture. You are also particularly drawn towards the shapes around you. Because of the value you place on humanity, you tend to seek out other people and get energized by being around others. You like to deal directly with whatever comes your way without dealing with speculating possibilities or outcomes you can't control. You are in tune with all that is around you and understand your life as part of a larger whole. You prefer a structured environment within which to live and you like things to be predictable.

I've some disagreements with this list... 'The DaVinci Code' should NOT be on here, and some, like Hamlet are in collections previously mentioned! They really should have included the Divine Comedy, and there's no representation of Agatha Christie (Thanks [livejournal.com profile] ataramos, Poe, Dashiel Hammet, Asimov, or MANY others I can think of that had the requisite 'impact' on the world. Hell, they missed 'Frankenstein, or A Modern Prometheus'! O well. Its all opinion I guess.

... But they're wrong. ;)

First, the problems recently described in previous posts have been resolved for the most part, as far as I know. Thanks to all who offered advice- some of it was useful!

Second... [livejournal.com profile] prismo stuck me with the letter B for a little meme thingie- you get a letter and find a bunch of songs (five at least) starting with that letter. So...

B is for...

Black & White- Three Dog Night
Billy's Bones- The Pogues
Big Love- Fleetwood Mac
Babylon- Don Mclean
Bohemian Rhapsody- Queen
Built to Last- Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)- Nancy Sinatra

In other news, I made dinner last night for myself, [livejournal.com profile] joshuwain, [livejournal.com profile] foeclan, [livejournal.com profile] feezlekhan, [livejournal.com profile] khirsahdrgn and [livejournal.com profile] zxizaraxii- [livejournal.com profile] mirrdae had to work late and missed it. The menu was breaded chicken breasts, kernel-corn, steamed broccoli and italian bread. I'm pretty sure people enjoyed it. :) We also watched 'NightWatch', an interesting little film about a battle between good and evil. VERY Russian, and pretty good. Other than that things are pretty quiet.
