Writer's Block: Significant Change

Have you ever tried to change yourself for someone you were in a relationship with (or wanted to be in a relationship with)? Did it work?

I'm trying to recover for my boyfriend. :)
I'll tell you later whether it works. At the moment... things ain't so shiney.

Writer's Block: Seven

Which of the seven deadly sins—sloth, greed, lust, gluttony, anger, envy, and pride—are you most likely to commit?

Lust hands down
closely followed by gluttony and greed
then sloth
then envy
then anger
and last pride.

I'm gonna go to hell, kay?

Writer's Block: Resolved

A lot of resolutions, from the mundane to the truly ambitious, are being made today. What are your New Year's resolutions? Do you think you're likely to stick to them past the month of January?

Here are my New Years Resolutions, I will damn well try my hardest to stick to them all year:
1. Lose weight
2. Revise for and pass my exams
3. Stop going to the chemist across the road from college
4. Do the things I'm supposed to when I'm supposed to XD

Writer's Block: Smoked Out

Beer and cigarettes once went together like bread and butter, but now smoking in bars is banned in many cities. When you see smokers standing outside bars in the cold and rain, what is your first reaction? Walk on by, join them, or scorn them?

Either join them or go in, have a couple of drinks (alcohol jacket dontcha know) and then join them.

I think, because of the smoking ban, more places should have a small smokers shelter set away from the door. I wish our college had one. Because if I go out to smoke I am aware of the effect on others, and at college and some bars we have to stand near the entrance or tend to stand near the entrance so we're not randomly standing a few yards down the road. But I always feel so bad for the people walking past. I know I'm killing myselft I don't want to kill them. Makes me feel a bit like I'm cutting them or making them overdose just because I do.

And I feel horrible for asthma sufferers. My friend has asthma and I'm always terrified of setting her off because she'll come out to check on me every so often when I smoke. Even though I tell her not to.

That was a ramble. Sorry,

Writer's Block: Wild Rumpus

A lot of characters in kids' books have it pretty good, from calling the start of the wild rumpus to ordering room service from their hotel suite. If you could be any character from children's literature, who would you be?

I wonder how many people have said Bella from the Twilight Series? eurgh
I'd rather not. ><
Yeaaah... I'll go into that later if you want to know.

For me I'd like to be one of the kids in the Narnia books or maybe someone from the Darren Shan series. That would be nice.
Narnia because I'd love to just slip into another world and not be bothered by anyone. Not be told to do homework or to eat this or that. I'd love that.
And Darren Shan series because I loooove vampires and Anne Rice didn't write children's books ;) It'd make me happy to be with vampires, real, dangerous vampires who'd sooner rip your throat out than kiss you.
Holly Short is also ace. Artemis Fowl <3 :)


Writer's Block: Costumes

We have to ask: What are you going to be for Halloween this year? And can we see a picture?

A sexy devil ;)
pictures will be forthcoming but they'll be friends only =P

Writer's Block: Live Music

When it comes to bebop, you want to take it straight, no chaser. And a smoky jazz club is the best place to get it. What’s your favorite kind of place to see live music?

I love all the Student Union venues and places like the Manchester Academies.
Anywhere small and intimate.

As well as local clubs and gigs. Just a room, the band and all your friends<3

Writer's Block: Google Founded

Ten years ago today, Google was founded. In that time, how has Google changed your life, and do you ever go out of your way to avoid its omnipresent power?

It makes homework so so sooooo much easier ;)

Writer's Block: The Expendable Sense(s)

If you had to give up one of your five senses, which could you live without?

Acually on QI Steven Fry said we had more than five ;)
But I'd give up taste or smell.
Sound and Sight and Touch are highly important to me.

139.6 baby :D
If you were stranded on an island with a fictional character, who would it be and why?

I can never pick just one thing with these (I'm far, far too indecisive) so you're going to be subject to a list. ;)

1. Hellboy. Just because... yum. Also I think he'd be interesting conversation what with all the things he's seen and done. And he'd probably be able to get us off the island.

2. The Joker. Kay, he'd probably kill me eventually but I want to have a conversation with either a sociopath or a serial killer before I die, and he ticks both boxes!

3. Harley Quinn. Because you can't have Mistah J and not have Harley too. 'Sides, we could swap stories about love and maybe she could teach me some gymnastics moves.

4. Spike. Provided there was a blanket so he didn't turn to dust immediatley. Again he's someone I could invisage being fantastic conversation.

5. DOCTOR WHO! Do you really need to ask?

other fictional characters I wouldn't mind being stuck on an island with & PICTURE SPAM!Collapse )

Why yes, this is indeed just an opportunity for me to shamelessly list all the fictional characters I have ever had a crush on or thought would be interesting conversation ;)

Ho Hum

First off.
My icon = YUM <3

ramblingsCollapse )

Anyhoodles, I managed to organise some stuff.
My CDs are now organised alpabetically by artist then chronologically by release date. That took hours. I never realised how many CDs I had!
Then I organised my pokemon cards lol. Those I have millions of, and loads of sets with a suprising number of first ed.
If anyone wants some I can send you a bunch (like 10 in an envelope) for a small donation of poastage fee.
I have poke cards from: base set, jungle, fossil, base set 2, team rocket, gym heroes, gym challenge, neo genesis, neo discovery, neo revelation, neo destiny and the legendary collection.
And of course loads of energy & trainer cards from many different sets.
I'm happy to send some out if you message me, if there's any specifics you're looking for ask and I'll see what I can do. Some cards I won't let go of, and the gym & neo collections I'll ask for a couple more pence for because they were a bugger to find here.
Seriously though, 50p or so to cover shipping/postage costs and I'll send them out.

Message me :D or e-mail: carpenoctem@hotmail.co.uk

If you want to donate some money anyway:


I also started whittling down my magazine collection. I buy fashion magazines and keep them until I've cut out pictures I like. Now I just need a quicker, less messy, way of getting them into my scrapbook than just gluing them down with pritt stick. Hmm...

Writer's Block: The Meaning of Love

What does love mean to you, and why? Have you always felt this way?

Love, to me, is like a connection deeper than anything you can express in words.
I've never really been in love myself, although I guess I'm kinda in love with one of my friends.
And I've never been able to put what love is into words.

to everyone who replied to my last entry. Your kind words were much appreciated.
I'll post another entry in a second.
