"I didn't eat them! Who said I ate them?"

"Oh... that's not right!"
linauri: (Fantastic!!!)

"Normal specs?! What do I look like, a dork?"

"Does this person ever shut up?"
linauri: (you know you want to...)

"I think the cloning went a bit wrong on this one, mate."

I couldn't resist! I saw this, and the running commentary that was going in my head while I browsed pics of David suddenly had me laughing out loud. And yes, I admit, without shame, that I was deliberately searching for pics of this delicious and delightful man. I mean come on, it's David bloody Tennant!
Someone, please tell me I'm just hallucinating. Seriously. I can't possibly have this much back luck. I mean... 3 papers in one weekend? And one of them for Professor Aneurism, too. Gah! No way that's gonna happen. OK, it will happen, but not very well. And it's not for lack of working on them all week, either. OK, maybe a little. But I couldn't very well write a review paper on an article without an article to review, now could I? And of course, I had to be all silly and insist that the article be ineresting to read in teh first place, so... *Sighs* I hate my life right now, can I just say that? Seriously hate my life...

Elizabeth Bennet

Often called Lizzy, Elizabeth is the heroine of Pride and Prejudice. The seceond eldest of five sisters, she is witty and intelligence, though her prejudice prevents her from recognizing her true love when he appears. However, Mr. Darcy, though he appears proud, wins her love and respect, but not before she believes she's lost him forever.

Which Classic Heroine are You?

54% Elizabeth Bennet
53% Emma Woodhouse
48% Jane Eyre
34% Jo March
26% Maid Marian
26% Wendy Darling
19% Anne Shirley
15% Juliet Capulet
8% Helen of Troy
7% Eowyn of Rohan

Oooh, I identified with Helen! Yeah, I know, only 8%, but still. Helen! The face that launched a thousand ships and all that. Talk about an ego boost. :D

Scary Schizophrenia

Sunday, March 4th, 2007 08:22 pm
linauri: (Beyond Words)
OK, so I'm sitting here reading my homework for psych class, and the more I read, the more frightened I find myself becoming. Tomorrow we're going to have an ethical discussion using an article about schizophrenia as the central point, so I'm currently reading an article that was assigned for preperatory purposes. My cousin, who's only a year (two?) older than me was diagnosed with schizophrenia about two years or so ago; paranoid schizophrenia to be precise. Just his afternoon, while discussing my homework with my mother, I found out that one of her younger sisters (my schizo. cousin is on the same side of the family) is also schizophrenic. After reading about the symptoms, I can't say I'm surprised any longer. Now, getting to the frightening bits. First off, I'm not sure I want to have kids anymore. Ever. According to this article, schizophrenia is hereditary. The closer the relative with it, the more likely a person to develop it themselves. Secondly, I'm frightened for my cousin's new baby. The poor thing is barely 7 months old, and while schizophrenics are not considered dangerous without secondary stimlus (ie. drugs, prior violent behavior), paranoid schizophrenics are a higher risk than any other type. The most frequently targeted in such cases are family members and friends. The minute I read that sentence, I had the sudden urge to call up my cousin and tell her to pack off her little girl to her mother's house right now. Maybe I'm just all jumpy from caffeine and fatigue and stress over my assignment schedule for the next couple of weeks, but dammit if schizophrenia doesn't scare the shit out of me now that I know more about it. Someone tell me that any kids I may have will be normal. Tell me that they won't end up as screwed up as the rest of my parents' families. God I'm scared now.

Fun with Icons

I call this one "Fantastic!!" And yes, I'm a little Who-crazed at the moment. Just got my hands on the soundtrack for newer series. I keep listening to the "Doomsday" track and getting all sniffly. But it's a great soundtrack. (Psst... DP, the album's on bearshare!)

Love and huggles all!
So, for my psych class on Wednesday, the professor has asked us to do this Jung Typology Test and bring in the results. Only takes about 15 minutes. Having just finished it, I'm not sure how accurate it is. Then again, I haven't read the text assignment for the week, either, so maybe that's my own fault. Anyway, the whole point of this little babble-fest is to post the link with the test on it. Thought you all might enjoy an insight into your personalities. There's more than one test on the website, too, so I'm posting the home-page link, rather than the specific link for the test we were assigned. Go, take the test. *Makes shooing motions* And no skiving off, either. Kitty's watching. Heh heh heh.

, you're now logged in!

Below you'll find your test result. After, continue on to your homescreen to discover what we're about.

Hmm… Who’d have thought?

The Sonnet
Deliberate Gentle Love Dreamer (DGLDf)

Romantic, hopeful, and composed. You are the Sonnet. Get it? Composed?

Sonnets want Love and have high ideals about it. They're conscientious people, caring & careful. You yourself have deep convictions, and you devote a lot of thought to romance and what it should be. This will frighten away most potential mates, but that's okay, because you're very choosy with your affections anyway. You'd absolutely refuse to date someone dumber than you, for instance.

Your exact opposite:
Genghis Khunt

Random Brutal Sex Master
Lovers who share your idealized perspective, or who are at least willing to totally throw themselves into a relationship, will be very, very happy with you. And you with them. You're already selfless and compassionate, and with the right partner, there's no doubt you can be sensual, even adventurously so.

You probably have lots of female friends, and they have a special soft spot for you. Babies do, too, at the tippy-top of their baby skulls.

ALWAYS AVOID: The 5-Night Stand, The False Messiah, The Hornivore, The Last Man on Earth

CONSIDER: The Loverboy

I suppose that sounds about right. Now, if I can just find that Loverboy…

And on that lovely note, I'm off to see if I can find him in Dreamland.

Lov and huggles all!

Messed Up Thinking

Saturday, February 24th, 2007 03:23 pm
OK, so I'm browsing the news sites, looking for an article that would make for a good ethical review subject in my pysch class and I come across this little blurb on Now, initially, I'm thinking about the tragic end of it. Until I get to the end. Am I the only one who wonders what the parents were thinking to leave the child in her care in the first place, knowing what they did? Seriously.

CENTENNIAL, Colorado (AP) -- A 53-year-old woman who claimed she received spiritual messages from geese before allegedly stabbing her toddler granddaughter to death was found not guilty by reason of insanity Friday.

A judge ordered Carol Lynn Pappas committed to the state mental health hospital, where officials will decide "when and if she will ever be released," said Kathleen Walsh, spokeswoman for the district attorney.

She faced life in prison if convicted.

Authorities said Pappas called 911 from her son's home October 29, 2005, and said, "I flipped ... the baby was crying and I couldn't handle it."

When police arrived, they found Pappas holding a phone. Both her hands were stained with blood, and an 8-inch knife was found near the body of 21-month-old Madison Pappas.

Madison had been stabbed numerous times.

Authorities said Pappas had told her son she had been receiving spiritual advice from geese flying over his house, where she was living.

Court records showed she had been admitted to hospitals for psychiatric care at least six times in 2005, including six weeks before the slaying.

So... this is a *really* majorly totally bad time for me to be avoiding my homework, seeing as I have a four page paper due in the morning that I haven't even started writing (don't worry, I've got like 6 pages of notes for it, just need to pick my points and flesh them out), for a class that I've missed half the lectures for in which half the grade is dependent on attendance (really, she couldn't have like, reminded me after I started skipping?). Anyway, I'm doing better, and I just had to post up some of my icons. I really hope this works, I'm not so good at this whole picture-in-post thing. *Crosses fingers* OK, so I can't figure out how to get the actual icons attatched, so you're just gonna have to suffer the originals from my comp. :p


OK, so this is the best I could do for now. Now where did those other pics go? *Wanders off in search of more icons*

5 More Minutes Ma

Tuesday, February 20th, 2007 12:22 pm

WHEEE!!! OK, so I'm totally knackered, but I just found out that my userpic limit doubled, so I had to upload a few that I've been stockpiling. And no, I did not make any of them. With the exception of the one currently on display. That's my baby. One of the first pics with my new digicam. Anyway, after adding a few pics, I found out that I could then triple my allowance if I upgraded. Had to allow ads on my page, but they're pretty unobtrusive so far, so no big. Now I can have 15 icons instead of only 3! *Happy dance* More of my loverly collection after class.

Love and huggles all!

Christian Humor

Monday, February 19th, 2007 09:44 pm

You don't have to be religious to find this funny.

 Jesus and Satan were having an ongoing argument about who was better on the computer. They had been going at it for days, and frankly God was tired of hearing all the bickering. 

Finally fed up, God said, "THAT'S IT! I have had enough. I am going to set up a test that will run for two hours, and from those results, I will judge who does the better job."
So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away.

They moused.
They faxed.

They e-mailed.

They e-mailed with attachments.

They downloaded.

They did spreadsheets!

They wrote reports.

They created labels and cards.

They created charts and graphs.

They did some genealogy reports

They did every job known to man.

Jesus worked with heavenly efficiency, and Satan was faster than hell.

Then, ten minutes before their time was up, lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, rain poured, and, of course, the power went off.

Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known in the underworld.

Jesus just sighed.

Finally the electricity came back on, and each of them restarted their computers.

Satan started searching frantically, screaming: "It's gone! It's all GONE!  "I lost everything when the power went out!"

Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files from the past two hours of work.

Satan observed this and became irate. "Wait!" he screamed. "That's not fair! He cheated! How come he has all his work and I don't have any?"

God just shrugged and said,



Jack O'Neill: So what's your impression of Alar?
Teal'c: That he is concealing something.
Jack O'Neill: Like what?
Teal'c: I am unsure - he is concealing it.


Narim: No harm will come to you. The Tollan will guarantee it.
Jack O'Neill: Is that a "money back if you're not completely alive" guarantee?

Teal'c: Appearances may be deceiving.
Jack O'Neill: One man's ceiling is another man's floor.
Daniel: A fool's paradise is a wise man's hell.
Jack O'Neill: Never run with... scissors? 

Daniel: Wow, this place is incredible. It's like we just stepped into the citadel at Mycenae.
Jack O'Neill: I thought you said it was Greek.
Daniel: Oh, Mycenae was an ancient city in the Southern Peloponnesian region.
Jack O'Neill: Where's that?
Daniel: Greece.
Jack O'Neill: Why do I do that? 

Captain Kyle Rogers: You are all casualties until 1400 hours.
Jack O'Neill: Would that be Daylight Savings or Standard?

Daniel: That's interesting. I wonder if everyone's coming from some religious event.
Jack O'Neill: Why does it always have to be a religious thing with you? Maybe they're coming from a swap meet.

[Carter and O'Neill lie close to one another for warmth]
Sam Carter: Sir?
Jack O'Neill: It's my sidearm, I swear. 

Jack O'Neill: Teal'c, you don't have to stick around.
Teal'c: Undomesticated equines could not remove me.
Jack O'Neill: Wild horses, Teal'c. 

Teal'c: [in Jack's body] The mission did not go as planned.
Jack O'Neill: [sarcastically, in Teal'c's body] Ya think? 

Colonel Harry Maybourne: If you hit me, I'll have you court-martialed, Colonel.
Jack O'Neill: I'm not gonna hit you, Maybourne. I'm gonna shoot you.

Linea: There are many forms of power, my dear. Some are more subtle than others.
Jack O'Neill: Well, for the moment we just need the electrical kind.

Teal'C and Jack are repeating the same day and only they remember it. They decide to play golf into an active Stargate wormhole]
Jack O'Neill: How far away is this planet?
Teal'c: Several hundred light-years.
Jack O'Neill: That's gotta be a record.
[Jack golfs again]
General George S. Hammond: [They golf again later, and Hammond catches them] Jack, what the hell are you doing?
Jack O'Neill: [Jack screws up his golf swing] In the middle of my BACKSWING!

Jack O'Neill: Just give me some kind of warning.
Teal'c: I'm going to shoot you.
Jack O'Neill: I was thinking more along the lines of "On Three".

Jack O'Neill: Excuse me, I distinctly remember someone saying "We're not gonna make it!" I think we made it.
Jacob Carter: I'm sorry, I overreacted. At the time, it looked very much like we weren't going to make it.
Jack O'Neill: Yeah, well, maybe next time, you'll just wait and see.
Jacob Carter: And blow the last chance I might ever have to be right?

Vala Malduran: I know nothing about your fair planet... other than it seems to have a rather interesting if somewhat limited gene pool.
[looks at Daniel and Col. Mitchell

Cameron Mitchell: Ladies first.
Vala Malduran: [turns to Daniel] Well, then, after you. 

General George S. Hammond: You ever think of writing a book about your exploits in the line of duty?
Jack O'Neill: I've thought about it. But then I'd have to shoot anyone that actually read it. 

Teal'c: If you once again try to harm me or one of my companions, my patience with you will expire. (OK, not so much with the funny, but it just sounds so cool when Teal'c talks that way)

Daniel: I just hope we don't regret giving them those gate addresses.
Jack O'Neill: I don't think we will... the first one being a black hole, and all. They get progressively darker after that.

Sam Carter: The asteroid has an irregular shape, but we've calculated its length from end to end to be approximately 137 kilometers.
Jack O'Neill: I've seen this movie. It hits Paris.

Major Vallarin: Wait here.
Daniel Jackson: Yes, you go down the dark hallway alone and I'll wait here in the dark room alone.

Jack O'Neill: Actually, it's called the Accretion Disk.
Daniel: Well, I guess it's easy to understand why the local population would be afraid of something like that... *what* did you just say?
Jack O'Neill: It's just an astronomical term.
Sam Carter: You didn't think the Colonel had a telescope on his roof just to look at the neighbors, did you?
Jack O'Neill: Not initially.

Jack O'Neill: All right, we came here in peace, we expect to go in one... piece.

Jack O'Neill: What do you want?
Apophis: To live.
Jack O'Neill: I can't help you there. That's between you and your god. Oh, wait a minute. You are your god. That's a problem. 

SG-1 is discussing the 4 of them attacking a Goa'uld planet]
Teal'c: I believe a "medical attack" could be successful.
Jack O'Neill: Surgical attack, Teal'c, it's called a "surgical attack." 

OK, OK, I'm done. :D More at the following link, though.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY TO ALL!!! *Dances madly around the room* For those of you who haven't guessed, I'm completely knackered and avoiding my homework today Hey, after spending the last 24 hours studying for my psych exam, taking the psych exam and trying to fit in a few hours of sleep, I'm entitled to a day away from homework. Course, this means that my usual slack after class Friday is out. *Pout* Ah well. So, in the process of avoiding my homework, and being surprisingly bored as a result, I found a great site for jokes! Don't remember how, sorry, but I'm gonna post the link at the bottom, along with a list of some of my faves so far (There's hundreds, so I've barely scratched the surface) Oh, and of course, I couldn't resist throwing in a quote from perhaps my all-time favorite moment in the TV show Stargate SG-1 (Yes, I've been that bored today, that I actually started reading a list of quotes that I stumbled across for the show) And now, on with the funnies!!

Jack O'Neill: Handing in my resignation.
Samantha Carter: Resigning? What for?
Jack O'Neill: So I can do this...
[kisses Sam

The best way, I've found, to explore this page is to go to the sort by category page. 
Under "blondes", some of my faves so far are as follows: 
     Brunette meets Genie
     Blonde-Elmo Factory
     Three Girls Meet the Fairy
     Two Blondes and a Camel
     Another Dumb Blonde
    Not-so-Dumb Blonde
Under "Men and Women":
     Applying for a Job at the CIA
     Mommy and "Uncle" Frank
     Moon Talking
     Men vs. Women vs. The Short Story
     What do I Look Like?
     Devil in the Church

And that's just the first couple of pages! Enjoy! :D

<a href="" title="My valentinr - linauri"><img src="" alt="My Valentinr - linauri" border="0"></a><br><a href="">Get your own valentinr</a>

Happy almost V-day to all. :D
OK, not really. I just reserved a copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!!! Wheeeee!! *Happy dance* July 21st suddenly can't come fast enough (and not just because it's the middle of summer vacation). OK, I'm done being all randomly happy and weird. Time to put a damper on my good mood and try to memorize some new forms of Latin verbage. :-p 

Love and huggles all around.

Hey Ki! I've posted! Ok, so more like responded to your post, but I couldn't remember the password, so it was the best I could do. And now that I take another look at it, it could definately do with some editing. Still, it's not terrible, and it's better than nothing, yeah?

So... what's taking so long? How come you haven't posted more to it, huh? *Giggles and runs away to hide*
Stolen from Isi:

1. Grab the nearest book
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest."

"Fromation of the perfect tense:
a)The perfect active is formed for 1st and 4th conjugatoins by adding -ui to the stem, e.g. ama-ui, audi-ui. 2nd conjugations verbs only rarely add -ui to the stem (e.g. deleo, delere, deleui); they drop the -e of the stem as a rule, e.g. habeo, habere, habeui."

*Wince* So much for avoiding my Latin a bit longer. :-p
