11:28 pm - Even Diamonds Start As Coal
So, I generally eschew those memes and quizzes that pervade my flist because they show up three thousand times and aren't very interesting, BUT I finally found one that's really cool because it's interactive! Instead of telling me what sort of blood diamond I am, you get to put fake gifts in my fake stocking! It's way cheaper than actually buying me a Christmas present, you know?! So be nice to me, as you have been nice before (yes, I have noticed the nice things you people have been saying about me in anonymous love memes, thank you so much!).

Xmas Stocking

Oh, and you know what? Since I'm posting one meme, I might as well post that one where you take the first sentences of your first posts from each month, right? Just for kicks:

January: Three episodes on Saturday.

February: Fight!

March: This Saturday, I'm flying out to the Bay Area for two weeks (March 4 - March 18) in order to learn the medical writing ropes and such so that I can better work remotely as I prepare to move in April, assuming I find a subletter.

April: I came up with a new band name today: Error 404 File Not Found.

May: On May 9, CW will stand for something entirely different: cloud_watchers.

June: There is a moment during "Chicago," by Sufjan Stevens, that I tear up whenever I sing along.

July: Just to shut you people up.

August: So my cousin is showing me the books she needs for English to see if I have any of them.

September: jadelynx is nuts.

October: Have you been to helpmeveronica.com, the very first Veronica Mars alternate-reality game (ARG), which took the Internet by storm, garnering multiple high-profile media mentions and hooking thousands of new viewers with its viral mayhem?

November: I've finally discovered the wonders of Pandora, and I'd like to share a few song addictions it has given me after discerning my particularly awesome musical tastes.

December: In 2003, I unexpectedly met my best friend.

And for those of you who have diligently been awaiting my BSG post, there won't be one. I didn't feel like it was worth writing about. (Sorry, Jane. Not your fault, maybe?) And I don't feel like ragging on the show when other people are still enjoying it. I think it's losing me again. If you want, you can relive my ragging on "Black Market," because it has a joke I really like.

Dude, you gave me an underage Christmas gift.

I'm just giving her to you, not suggesting the usage. I'll trust that you are not going to do anything untoward with her until she is legally of age to do such things.

And....dude, you gave her to me too. I'm like twice her age - at least you can somewhat get away with it. All I can do is ask her to go down to the store and pick me up some Metamucil.

Aww. I'm sorry you don't enjoy BSG so much anymore. It might get more to your taste again, you never know.

Considering your June entry, have you ever posted "Chicago" for download? I have it on my computer for inexpicable reasons, and I just adore it. It's beautiful. Always cheers me up.

I hope BSG gets more to my taste very soon. I don't like not liking it! Especially since all the cool kids love it so much.

Considering my June entry, I in fact posted "Chicago" for download in that very sentence, but the YSI link is now defunct, so I didn't include it. It is a beautiful song.

Also, YOUR GIFT ROCKS.

Yes, we do. Actually, after reading posts on this last one, I'm starting to think I'm the last cool kid.

I like it, too, but I'm crazy rather than cool, so I might be representing another slice of the viewership.

There's a fine line between crazy and cool. Wear black, sit in the back, and no one will know the difference.

I hear.

Hee - looks like you are getting some great gifts. I just wanted to say - what the hell happened Jane? I was sooooo disappointed in this Friday's BSG. I mean it was Jane, I was expecting great things. Sigh!

I can't think of anything original to put in your stocking at the moment but if I do I'll participate. I'm having a hard enough time thinking of RL stocking gifts.

BSG had me weepy. I liked Kat and it kind of broke my heart. I only have one main ship on the show, and I mostly watch for everything and everyone and I was sad to see Kat go. But I was happy she went out as a hero, made peace with Starbuck and had Adama by her side.

Perhaps if BSG went anime? That might be something.

I totally mock you. Especially since you brought me INTO this show and now I'm in LOVE with it and you're all "No, no, I'll be over THERE" and I'm like, "Jeeeez."

There wasn't enough room to say that the Spaced box set would obviously be US format, with all the original music.

I wish. :-)

But what if I WANT to buy you a real Christmas present? =P

Then again, now that I've "fake-gifted" you Appa, nothing can really compare now, can it?

OMG... if that wasn't significantly out of my price range, I would seriously be considering buying that for you. And/or Manuel, the only other friend of mine who likes Avatar.

Or possibly for myself. Cause... APPA!

Le sigh...

They were cheaper when Nick and Paramount were selling them. And then they sold out. Like whoa.
