Copy this sentence into your LiveJournal if you're in a heterosexual marriage, and you don't want it "protected" by the bigots who think that gay marriage hurts it somehow.

To my utter non-surprise, the Sex ID test has determined that my brain is more male than female. I scored much closer to the average male score than the average female score. I was pretty sure that was going to be the result before I started. But still entertaining.

1. Post 3 things you've done in your lifetime that you don't think anybody else on your friends list has done.
2. See if anybody else responds with "I've done that."
3. Have your friends cut & paste this into their journal to see what unique things they've done in their life.

I have:

1. Worn a formal gown into the McDonald's ball pit.
2. Graffitied my high school (the auditorium catwalks).
3. Literally spent my entire paycheck on books (it was Christmas! I worked at the bookstore!).

It's kind of sad that the first two date from high school. I'm not very exciting. Or, my friends are too exciting, cause there was a bunch of stuff that would have been unique in a lot of crowds, but not mine.

What we have here is the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing’s users. As in, they sit on the shelf to make you look smart or well-rounded. Bold the ones you've read, underline the ones you read for school, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish.

Hmm. not doing as well as I thought. Then again, there's a fair amount of recent stuff on here I have no interest in reading ever (Life of Pi, The Historian). There are, I think, 14 I would like to read at some point. 3 of which I already own. I don't think I'm going to add them to my to-read list if they're not already there, however.

Edited to add LJ-cut. I need to remember how to do that without looking it up every time.

    I have always saved any site that looked well-done as a bookmark, in case someone I knew asked me about the topic. Then I became a librarian, and strangers asked me about topics. I have over 1500 bookmarks organized in my personal hierarchy and publicly posted on a web page.

    2. buffy:
    I love(d) the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series, and even have a certain fondness for the movie. And I still read the fanfiction a couple of years after the demise.

    3. csi:
    CSI is also a favorite TV series. I love the building up of the clues to a picture of the event - it's like my favorite mystery novels.

    4. etymology:
    I'm fascinated by language in general, and how words evolve, shifting meanings and connotations.

    5. folksonomies:
    A new online trend of allowing "folks" to create their own categories for things (usually bookmarks), instead of a formal taxonomy decreed by some authority.

    6. liad:
    One of my favorite (and less well-known) SF series is the Liaden books by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. Just amazing writing and world-building.

    7. lost:
    Another favorite TV series. For a librarian, I'm a serious TV junkie. I hope I don't have to explain what Lost is to anybody. However, I will say that survival stories have always been one of my favorites genres - Robinson Crusoe, Clan of the Cave Bear, anything where people are essentially in the middle of nowhere with no equipment or supplies - I love that.

    8. paganism:
    I consider myself a pagan, someone who reveres nature and believe in a mother goddess. I'm a solitary practitioner, since most gatherings of pagans seem to concentrate on stuff I have zero interest in, like tarot or astrology or auras or other new-agey crap. I would say I gradually converted starting around the time I moved to New York, though I had been interested in the idea since high school.

    9. science fiction:
    I've loved science fiction since early adolescence, and keep up with several series.

    10. tivo:
    I love, love my Tivo, though I'm not one of those evangelists trying to convert all my friends. Though I can lean that way if they ask me about it. I only wish they would hurry up with the tape one/watch one ability, for when my shows coincide.

    Gakked from [livejournal.com profile] bastardsnow Take this list and post it into your own LJ, and bold the movies you've seen. Add five more movies to the end of the list. Count how many movies you have seen. If you've seen more than 70 movies, you are a "movie whore". Post the score of how many movies you've seen in the subject line. Use a LJ-cut since you've got at least one LJ-friend who doesn't really want to see an ungodly number of movies snaking its way down the computer monitor. (optional, extra credit) Question your friend's taste in movies. Read more... )

    Ten things that I've done that you probably haven't:

    1) I've been picked to be an audience participant during a David Copperfield magic show.
    2) I have spray painted my name in 5 foot high letters on the walls of my high school (OK, in the catwalks above the auditorium, but still).
    3) I have sobbed my way out of a speeding ticket succesfully (go, drama class).
    4) I've received an email from Anne McCaffrey.
    5) I have driven my car on the sidewalk, on purpose.
    6) I have been the only causcasian person living in my apartment building.
    7) I have frolicked in the ball pit at a McDonald's playground in a formal dress.
    8) I have heard Douglas Adams read from one of his books in person.
    9) I have read three whole books in one day, on multiple occasions.
    10) I have held a job at which my official title was "Oracle" (dot-com, they liked creative titles - I was in customer service, and "had all the answers").

    The Rogers Indicator of Multiple Intelligences
    created with QuizFarm.com

    You scored as Verbal/Linguistic. You have highly developed auditory skills, enjoy reading and writing and telling stories, and are good at getting your point across. You learn best by saying and hearing words. People like you include poets, authors, speakers, attorneys, politicians, lecturers and teachers.
















    We all knew that I would score highest on Verbal/Linguistic, right? Bookworm, librarian, walking thesaurus?

    Actually, I'm surprised that Logical/Mathamtical wan't a little higher. Then again, I don't like numbers, but I do like logic, so maybe that's what it's reflecting. I also though interpersonal would be a little lower.
