1. List some things you want to say to 15 different people but you know you never will.
2. Don't say who they are.
3. Feel free to comment, but don't confirm or answer anything.
4. Never discuss it again.


1. You shouldn't talk about living in Japan together because I take things at face value and you only half mean it. Knowing me, we'll drift apart after high school and never speak again.

2. No, I don't actually want to fuck you. I don't quite know what I want.

3. I want to be invited to your gay wedding. I promise I'll get you something good.

4. I really don't like your new boyfriend. I love you hon, but then you know that.

5. I wish we would talk more.

6. What happened to you?

7. You're a really awesome person. Don't get too sad, cause you make lots of people happy.

8. I like you, but you make me nervous.

9. You're the reason I'm going to study history in college.

10. The biggest doubts I have about leaving Albany are about leaving you. And you don't exactly make it any easier.

11. I think you're rather dumb.

12. I'm sorry I didn't mail that letter. I'm sorry I was such a screwup. I'm sorry you died before I could grow up and make something of myself.

13. You're going above and beyond the job description, but I don't know if I'll be able to work you into my first book.

14. It's too late, because the Harry Potter books have gone on pre-sale already. I hope you didn't kill Harry off. I want to see him in the end surrounded by lots of red-haired, green-eyed children.

15. I'm kind of attracted to you, but I won't do anything about it, ever.

Food meme from [ profile] ms_beeblebrox.

Basically, the meme is called "You are what you eat." You list ten of your favorite foods (cheese is practically on everyone's list) and tag five people. I'm kind of lazy, though, so if you want to, I tag you.

1. Tea. Any kind. Especially black, or spicy chai. With lemon and milk. I have a couple cups when I come home every day.

2. Coffee. When it's good, it's really good. And when it's bad, at least it has caffeine.

3. Chocolate. The good stuff, rich and jelly filled. Especially from that corner store in Brighton Beach.

4. Rice, made like the Chinese place five blocks away makes it, with onions and fried a bit. Crispy green beans with garlic and red wine.

5. General Tso's chicken. If I could recreate the sauce used in this dish, I'd save so much money over the years. I love this stuff so much, I could eat it every week.

6. Tomato soup with loads of hot sauce. Grilled cheese sandwiches made on an actual cast-iron grill.

Oh gosh, I can only think of six. I'm really picky.


I'm almost done with college stuff, and maybe I'll hand it in to my guidance counselor this week. :]

S songs. Tagged by [ profile] deryckak

I'll upload on request.

1. Samson - Regina Spektor.

I love this girl. Her quirkiness, the words. Oh and also the fact that she's multi-talented. She plays the piano on most of her songs.

This one's haunting and lovely.

2. Someday - The Strokes.

Can't have a song meme without mentioning the Strokes. I've been a fan since [ profile] whammybar999 got me hooked four years ago. I don't really like their later stuff as much, because it's darker and harder than it should be. Still v. cool though. And loads better than most of the music out there.

3. Smut - Tom Lehrer.

Very funny love song to smut. I have certain parts of this song memorized, and if I like you enough, you might hear me sing it someday. Or maybe not.

4. Start Rockin' - someone.

Because techno always makes me happy. That's really all the reason I need. :)

5. Somewhere Over the Rainbow - Me First and the Gimme Gimmes.

How cool that someone did a ska version of the classic Judy Garland song?

Meme gacked from [ profile] fernwithy

You move into a completely empty house and start over from scratch-money is not a consideration. Write down twenty specifics for your ideal home from architectural features to furnishings that are "must haves" for you. They can range from a window seat in the upstairs hall to an English club chair with a tufted ottoman beside a fireplace.

The first thing's actually in my bio. A library. One of those old fashioned rooms full of books, and comfortable chairs, good lighting. Cherry wood finish on the bookshelves.

A nice kitchen. Green and yellow color scheme. An oven that doesn't go 'whoosh' when you light it. Red appliances.

A dog for my mother.

Enough room for all my knicknacks.

A mudroom.

A backdoor.

Nice tan furniture. No leather. Again, good lighting.

Bedroom painted with the constellations, in glow in the dark paint.

Window seats that lift up to form drawers.

Big windows.

Beds with drawers underneath for linens.

An ottoman in the den/living room.



Lots of shelf space.

Someone special to share it with. Husband/boyfriend/life partner.

It's only sixteen things actually. But I don't really need much more. A small tv in the kitchen, a telephone, and I can't think of much more.

Ten things I've done that you probably haven't:

1. Run into a park bench, split my head open, required stitches. That I never had put on. Still have the scar on my forehead, btw.

2. Lived in Ukraine for seven years.

3. Started, and then stopped learning French.

4. Attended private school for eight years.

5. Got hit on by a fourteen year old boy. Last month.

6. Eaten cow's tongue, with mayonnaise.

7. Ice-skated since age eleven.

8. Missed every possible school function, incl dances and plays.

9. Flew to California (LA, and San Francisco) in sixth grade, w/grandfather.

10. I can't think of anything else really. I've been realizing lately that I'm really a boring person. *sigh*
