It's incredible. Every time I flist, there's a meme to be done. Amazing! *grins*

Tagged by Noka.

20 random facts about myself:

*deep breath* Oh, my. I don't know if you guys already know these things, but anyway...

1. I'm addicted to buying books and (this obsession is more recent) DVDs. It's tragic. I spend most of my allowance on them (what little doesn't disappear when phone bills arrive, that is), and now my bookshelf has no more space. =/

2. My parents never got married, but they both have new partners now. He has three other children; Mum, two.

3. I have a Macintosh and am very much emotionally attached to it. *hugs* I get kind of lost when I have to use a PC nowadays.

4. I've always dreamt of studying in France.

5. I don't watch TV. I used to watch a few series, but, these days, I only turn it on to watch DVDs. (The one exception is Lost, which I download.)

6. There are never lights on around the house when I'm home alone.

7. I love playing with candles, matches, lighters--fire in general. (Yes, I've been burnt. Several times.)

8. I'm a typical, textbook Scorpio.

9. I was raised a Bible-Thumping Bitch; I left my mother's loony sect missionary group and got interested in Wicca for a long time. Now, I'm happily agnostic. (But I still wear a pentacle.)

10. I finished reading the Bible for the first time when I was eight, and have lost track of how many times I've had to repeat the feat since then.

11. I have never read Jane Eyre, Lord of the Flies or Huck Finn, and that depresses me for some reason every time I look at my bookshelf.

12. Alexander Dumas (The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers) taught me to love books and thoroughly enjoy reading. Nowadays, it's immensely hard for a movie to get me half as satisfied as a chapter from any of my favourite novels.

13. After watching a movie, I tend to babble about, criticise and/or praise its screenplay, cinematography, art direction, costume design and whatnot. Please ignore me.

14. I met Harry Potter fans in person for the first time this year. (Incidentally, my Brazilian fandom family is much more complicated than the TGB one.)

15. People seem to think that, just because [livejournal.com profile] nancy_downs and I are dating, we have to like each other. You're They're all crazy. o.O'

16. I'm an incorrigible perfectionist, and immensely more worried about college than I tend to let on.

17. My name means 'ancient', 'elder'.

18. I'm a major sponge, i.e., I absorb other people's habits and quirks with extreme ease. And I love it.

19. I just came back from the dentist. I don't know why people dislike them so much!

20. I love multitasking. For instance, I am currently speaking to my brilliant daughter ([livejournal.com profile] paradoxo_mental) on AIM/iChat, with a friend from uni on MSN, on the phone with my grandmother, having dinner, and watching Trainspotting. xD

I tag: Nai ([livejournal.com profile] paradoxo_mental), Ash ([livejournal.com profile] worstangel), Runi ([livejournal.com profile] firstlightofeos), Arch ([livejournal.com profile] ladyofmasbolle), Anne ([livejournal.com profile] toasterobsessed), Anna ([livejournal.com profile] pink_pudding), Patricia ([livejournal.com profile] cherrychalk), Titou ([livejournal.com profile] titou_moony).

Tomorrow's a holiday in Brazil! \o/ It's raining; I'll hide here with some three or four movies to watch. =)

I've been getting strange plot bunnies... starting one one-shot per day... *blinks* I've... learned to enjoy writing again.

Oh yes, and the next chapter of Hopelessly Addicted is ready and beta-ed.

*will go upload it now*

*is amused*

15. I wonder who you were talking about. Absolutely crazy.

11. You haven't read all of the three? *falls over* *dies* You must. It's...like...blasphemy if you don't.

Thanks for doing the meme, love.

15. *grins* Am I being too transparent? *winks* Very.

11. Good girl. *pats*

*laughs* I think it's getting quite scary, really.

Nice facts, I need to get on that meme myself.

Yay! for holidays. =) (And multi-tasking)

Right now I'm reading about Farewell to Arms, finding binder covers, and writing an essay about Cold Sassy Tree. I shall never finish now that Hopelessly Addicted is being updated. Damn you, Chris. Procrastination is not a good thing right now. *pouts* (But other than that, yay! for updated HA.)

Yes, three times actually. XD It'll have to wait. *sigh* There should be a check-list, or at least some kind of "check in" saying, "yup, I got tagged. Boo on you." ...But not really. Ugh- I don't know what I'm talking about.


But I want to read the silly chapter, ma'am. I assure you, it will be much better than the items I'm suppose to be doing. Yea, that didn't make sense. Anyway, I shall read the chapter... in the morning! And then review it during lunch at school (if I can) and it won't be one of those reviews I've left before with nonsense. [I just looked back and it made me cringe, really.] *nods*

See this? This is procrastination, the long comment, that is. Rather, the-long-comment-that-makes-no-sense-what-so-ever-and-is-taking-up-time. =D Yes!

*grins* I'm getting it done... PATIENCE, young one. That way it wouldn't be so confusing.

Memes come FIRST! ^^

Well, I got the HW done, and I just reviewed HA. And, um, yea. It was quite senseless and I sort of just... rambled. =D You should be proud. *grins* [Oh, gawd. It was awful, I was all, "OMGLIEKWHOAYOUTOTALLYROX!11!!!" Or something. Eh, I hope I've grown a bit since then. *wonders*]

Any type of procrastination is love. :D I've never thought of it like that--- pretty bored, I'd say. But it is quite fun. XD

Why do you remind me of me? :)

-Scorpios. And I noticed you have my birthday too, Nov. 5th, we're twins! (except I'm born a year after).

- Parent situation. Mine eventually got married (when I was 3)...then divorced (when I was 15).

- No TV watching.

- The book situation. *sigh* Autobiography of a Yogi, The Satanic Verses, and Wide Sargasso Sea never cease bothering me on my bookshelf (when will I have the time?)

- Went through my wicca phase. I don't wear the pentacle anymore(I am far too loyal to my silver ankh) but I have it painted on my notice board (and occasionally henna it on my hand).

- Dentistlove :)

- The fire obsession. I have a lighter collection.

Off to read HA (while completely forgetting about my Lit. essay).

You remind me of Phoebe's brother on Friends. Both of you.

*shakes head*

*glares* I have no time. You are evil.

(Can you make a note of all the memes for which you have tagged me and I haven't yet filled out?)

*rolls eyes* How kind of you. I must apologise to her for not being online today.

(You'd better make me one, or I won't do any of them.)

I love you dear.

And you may have to excessively poke me to remind to do this meme.

Eek! Yessss. Fire. And I absorb other people's habits very, very easily. Very. And did you know dentist's have a sixty grand starting salary in their first year. And there are a lack of dentists in Australia. And I have a weird interest in them for somebody with no ambition to become one...

Am I vaguely stalker-ish because I know all these things?

You forgot pictures.

Fire. Fire scrying. Sweep. Morgan. Wicca.

It's all linked.

Pffft. I know that, Mum. *snort*

Hm. I think so. I'm pretty sure you mentioned the Alexander Dumas thing and the fire thing to me before. Muahaha.

*raises eyebrow* Riiiiight.

Oh, but she actually likes diet coooke. *wrinkles nose*

..That you don't exactly have to like Mama Lu. xDD
