Another excellent meme swiped from [livejournal.com profile] ciliandis:

-BOLD the ones you ARE. (I took this to mean bold those that could or have been applied to me, not those that actually do apply to me.)
-ADD stereotypes that you've heard but aren't here.
-PICK the stereotype that fits you the most, and put it in the SUBJECT when you re-post this. (I went for the one that has been applied most often.)

behind a cut for friend-list brevity sake )

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In February I gave [livejournal.com profile] vireo_blues a Dutch Oven (-10 points). In May I helped [livejournal.com profile] specieszero hide a body (-173 points). Last Sunday I invaded Iraq, broke it, and couldn't glue it back together before Mom got home (-1012 points). In July on a flight to Colorado Springs, I stole the emergency flight information card (-40 points). Last week I caught a purse-snatcher who stole [livejournal.com profile] futuresuperhero's purse (30 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-1205 points). For Christmas I deserve a spanking!

Sincerely,
srturtle

I also swiped this meme in which one post's the first sentence from the first post of every month for the year from [livejournal.com profile] fossilapostle :

January:
In case you didn't catch the reference (and because it's appropriate for the holiday), watch the video and listen to the song!

February: Later when I have more time I will definitely post an awesome recap of hanging out with [livejournal.com profile] ciliandis.

March: Sorry about not posting much lately.

April: It seems like yesterday was Crazy Monday.

May: I am now employed part-time to build and operate the new government access television channel for...

June: Okay, I'm going to try another approach, though still not as optimal as having insurance cover my transition therapy.

July: I have two answers for this one...

August: Just a few quick updates:

September: I've started to regard my transition as somewhat stalled.

October: Let us count the ways in which McCain-Palin will bring us change according to her performance in the debate tonight:

November: This weekend I finally hooked a video monitor to the VCR so we could watch television.

December: It was a thoroughly enjoyable mini-vacation, but I'm definitely glad to be home after four days away.

Dice Meme

Dec. 13th, 2008 12:19 pm
mandysee_mandydo: (Evilman)
Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] fossilapostle and [livejournal.com profile] specieszero:

Do you re-roll cocked dice?
Yes, unless they're only very slightly cocked.
Do you re-roll floor dice? Yes.
Do you roll where everyone can see it? Almost always. If playing a game in tight quarters or a crowded table, I might roll my dice in a box to prevent ruining the game board state or losing dice, but usually I roll my dice in plain site on the table.
Do you feel betrayed by your dice when they roll poorly? They're dice. I might bemoan a roll and feign betrayal or hurt, but honestly they're just dice and can't seriously betray me.
Do you have a favorite type of die? What is it? Not particularly. I mostly play board games so I use the d6 most.
Do you have different dice for different functions? Not particularly. It depends on the game, but I mostly play board games so all dice are fine.
Do you have different dice for different games? Most board games with dice use d6, but I do play some board games that use other dice. When roleplaying then yes, of course, because there are a variety of game systems out there that use a variety of dice. Do I use any particular dice specially for any particular game? No.
Do you have more of a single type of die than the others? What is it? Probably d6s or d10s.
Do you have FUDGE dice? Yes, several sets. I bought a GM pack, but most of those ended up confiscated by [livejournal.com profile] painted_wolf  because she runs FUDGE a lot and I rarely roleplay. That's okay, though, because I swiped her purple set.
Do you have scatter dice? Probably not. If I have to ask what scatter dice are then I probably don't have them. What are scatter dice?
Do you let other people touch your dice? Yes.
Do you have dice superstitions? What are they? No.
Do you buy more dice even though you don't need them? Yes. It's an addiction. I commonly refer to dice as "gamer candy" or "gamer crack."
What's your favorite die? I think my favorite would be the big doubling die I use as a d6. It is totally geektastic to use as a normal d6, especially when I roll a 2 and say 1. People look at me like "WTF?" and I explain that two is 2^1, therefore it is one. Same thing when I roll a 4 and say 2. 4 = 2^2. People get especially confused when I start rolling 8, 16, 32, or 64 on a d6.
If you were to put custom symbols on a die what would they be? I don't know. It might be cool to have a set of braille dice. I wonder if they make those? ~off to google braille dice~ Well, kinda... thought I want dice with the actual braille symbols.
Do you have dice made of anything particularly different than normal? Unfortunately no, but at one time I was considering commissioning a friend of mine to make me dice from pretty rocks. I want to get one of those really cool metal and/or glass carry cases they make for cosmetics and use that for dice. I've seen a couple of people do that, too, and it orks really well.
What do you keep your dice in? I found this really cool clear plastic paint can container at Staples and it's just barely big enough to hold all of my dice.
Do you have more than one dice container? No, I keep all of my dice not specifically associated with a board game in my dice can.
Do you keep dice in your pocket? Your glovebox? Your workplace? No. Just the paint can.
If you have a partner that games, do you have separate dice? Yes, although she frequently urges me to comingle dice with her or just give her my dice, or we swipe dice from each other (see above) or we might occasionally trade dice.
Do you have any of the first dice you bought or received? I do believe I still have my first set of translucent blue dice.
Do you play certain games just because they have you roll lots of dice? No.
Do you love your dice? How much? I don't "love" my dice but I tend to have obsessive collecting fits.

"Sarah Palin married her high school boyfriend, Todd Palin, on August 29, 1988. The Palin family lives in Wasilla, about 45 miles (72 km) north of Anchorage. The Palins have two sons (Track, 19, and Trig, four months) and three daughters (Bristol, 17; Willow, 14; and Piper, 7) [ages as of August 2008]. Todd Palin has said Track's name came from the interest Sarah's parents had in the sport and the fact that he was born in the sport's season; Bristol was named after Bristol Bay in Alaska, where Todd grew up and where he does commercial fishing; Willow was named after Willow, Alaska; Piper got her name because it is uncommon and "a cool name"; Trig's name is Norse for "strength".

1)Your first-born will be named after your parents favorite sport:
Football. (No flipping way!)

2)Your second-born will be named after a nearby area that you're not from but you like the sound of part of the name, and maybe you have nostalgic memories of said place:
Ash.

3)Your third-born will be named after another nearby place, for no reason other than you already have two children and don't have time to put much thought into another name:
Lincoln.

4)Your fourth gets a "cool" name:
Sable.

5)Your fifth gets something mythological, possibly straight out of Lord of the Rings:
Eowyn.
