2 - Associate you with a song/film.
3 - Tell a random fact about you.
4 - Tell a first memory about you.
5 - Associate you with a character/pairing.

7 - Tell you my favorite user pic of yours [if it pertains].

I've been saving these up...  Meme spam ahead...  skip if you wish.  My haikus are awesome, though!

Which Mix of the Hogwarts Houses are You?

You're a Slytherclaw!: By nature you are rational and a realist. Some people may call you cynical and elitist but this doesn't matter to you. You don't depend on other people's opinions to determine how you live your life. You are generally cautious and prefer to weigh the consequences before you act. In conflicts you prefer to remain neutral and aloof. You value intelligence and you are a natural diplomat, you can convince people to do what you want them to do. Your weakness is that you sometimes think more with your head than with your heart and it leads to isolation. With the intelligence of a Ravenclaw and the subtlety of a Slytherin you will be sure to achieve all your goals!

I love meme's. They are a sad fun addiction.

Re: Comment!
My eyes are green, with thick black rims. They turn Gray when I am angry, bright green when I am sad, celery green when I am happy, and are usually a gray/green color with flecks of gold outside the pupil.

Was that a good enough answer? :p
shady121 on April 7th, 2007 12:22 am (UTC)
I would like to participate in number 1 please.
Carrie Leigh: pretty ginnycarrie_leigh on April 7th, 2007 12:58 pm (UTC)
1. I found out (somehow) that you'd snagged a meme from me. I thought, Hey, why not?
2. I associate you with neither a song nor a film; the street my high school boyfriend lived on was Shady Grove. =P
4. Finding out you live in my state!
5. D/G?
6. What University do you go to?
7. Izzy. Definitely. Too precious.
Ayla: Izzyshady121 on April 7th, 2007 01:54 pm (UTC)
*hearts her Beatles* Yes I do love them.

6. I don't go to a major university... yet. Right now I'll be going to Jacksonville Baptist College here in Texas. But after 2 years there I will transfer over by heyurs and go to NCSU.
Numbaby: troyboynumbaby on April 7th, 2007 01:21 am (UTC)
Oh, I'm a Slytherclaw! Go me.
I can't be bothered doing that 10/20 years ago meme, because 20 years ago from today I was still in the womb. So that one would be boring. Some guy is doing a dodgy French accent on the radio - I'm sure my dodgy French accent is more fun!
Carrie Leigh: pretty ginnycarrie_leigh on April 7th, 2007 01:13 pm (UTC)
1. I friended you back because I LURRRRVE you!
2. Otis Redding, Sitting on the Dock of the Bay? Maybe because of your Vox.
3. We have the same body type, I think!
4. A personal message in the Forums. An offer to beta... the rest is history.
5. R/Sirius. BWAH! D/G.
6. Wow. I know a LOT about you. Last name?
7. Draco Potter puff "plot". Adorable.
Numbaby: tojourspurnumbaby on April 7th, 2007 04:17 pm (UTC)
Oh, honey. I don't *do* slash.
My last name is one of the reasons I need to get married - I need to change that sucker!
Carrie Leigh: pretty ginnycarrie_leigh on April 7th, 2007 05:57 pm (UTC)
Me neither. Ick.

I made a total lateral move in the last name department. One is absolutely no better than the other.
(Anonymous) on April 7th, 2007 01:39 am (UTC)
oh, yes, please. i can't wait!

Carrie Leigh: pretty ginnycarrie_leigh on April 7th, 2007 01:21 pm (UTC)
This is my SISTER, folks! The blonde, pretty one.
1. I haven't friended you because you aren't on LJ, but I do leave comments on your blog as often as possible.
2. The Batman theme song... we used to drop everything we were doing, and race home or inside to watch that, remember? Dununununununununu... Batman!
3. You keep a glass full of mismatched silverware next to your stove to use while you are cooking, which I find BRILLIANT.
4. I remember you lying on Mom and Dad's bed, only a couple of months old, and SCREAMING your head off. I looked at Mom and said, "This was your idea."
5. We are Marianne and Elinor from Sense and Sensibility. I'll let you decide which one is which.
6. What's your favorite movie? You probably know mine, right?
7. You don't have userpics, although the pics on your blog are cute, cute, cute.

Comments *grins*
Carrie Leigh: pretty ginnycarrie_leigh on April 7th, 2007 01:30 pm (UTC)
1. I friended you because of Dragon and Angel, and A Not So Simple Kind of Life. I looooove those stories!
2. This will sound weird. For a while there, a lot of you Aussies were saying how hot it was... and I kept thinking back to the Movie 'Priscilla, Queen of the Desert'. Just because of the weather, not because I assosiate you with Drag Queens. =P
3. You like Austrailian Rules Football? You definitely like some kind of football.
4. You *waving* at me after I friended you!
5. D/G, baby!
6. What did you want to be when you were a little girl?
7. "Shut up! My dad gave me this hat!"
dragonsangel68dragonsangel68 on April 7th, 2007 01:37 pm (UTC)
*giggles* I can see where the heat association comes from with Priscilla, Queen of the Desert ;) Yes, it's Aussie Rules football I like *there is no other code*

I actually wanted to be an Occupational Therapist *g* It's something I could have done, but the lure of earning money got too strong and I went to work instead ;)
(Deleted comment)
Carrie Leigh: pretty ginnycarrie_leigh on April 7th, 2007 01:36 pm (UTC)
1. I friended you back!
2. An American in Paris. I know, I know, you're not in Paris. Still.
3. You currently reside in Germany.
4. Being on the Forums with more posts than me and I'd been there 6 months longer than you...
5. D/G
6. What's your favorite subject?
7. Remus Lupin's answer to life!
dLdieloreley on April 9th, 2007 06:13 am (UTC)
#1, please?
Carrie Leigh: harry flirtcarrie_leigh on April 9th, 2007 02:50 pm (UTC)
1. Because you were the sweetest girl ever on the forums!
2. Live and let die - The Beatles (makes NO sense, except for the 'die' part =P)
3. You have a little brother that would get along swimmingly with my eldest son.
4. I *think* it was you posting in Person Above You, and you said,"Persephone33 is a mum!" Like it wasn't a death sentence, and you actually thought it was something to aspire to. Must go find that. ;)
5. D/G, baby!
6. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you like to go?
7. "Ten points fron Gryffindor."
dLdieloreley on April 11th, 2007 01:50 pm (UTC)
Hmmm... that's an interesting question. I want to go to heaps of places. I'd say China. We apparently have a house with one wall completely made out of oyster shells there. I want to see it.

Of course it isn't a death sentence! Although, you sound like my mum. I don't think she ever wanted kids, and now she's stuck with 3. :P And yeah, I think that was probably me.

Love your icon, by the way. It makes me giggle.
