Styyyyyylish

MeganWegan tagged me, the flirt.

The rules of the game are thus: all ye who are tagged as stylish bloggers have to spill seven interesting beans about yourselves before passing the baton of nomination on to seven others.  The world becomes a marginally happier, more knowledgeable place, blog friendships are developed and sealed and everyone gets a unicorn.  Well not quite, but it’s a bit of fun at least, right?

  1. I have two tailbones!  They didn’t fuse properly when I was a guppy, I mean infant.  The technical term is occult spina bifida.  For reals.
  2. I still dream of being a writer, which is a large part of why I blog.  But I hate that living in a capitalist society means I only put value on my writing if I could get paid for it.
  3. I have never met my biological father, or “sperm donor” as he was always known when I was growing up.  And you know, after a long time and a lot of therapy I think I can safely say I’ve got 99 problems but missing my “real daddy” ain’t one.
  4. I can’t abide people needlessly trying to maintain some kind of “dignity” in relentlessly silly circumstances.  The typical example involves people being all “I don’t want to play, I’ll suck” during a massive drunken RockBand marathon.
  5. I’m an only child.  Some say it shows.
  6. I do not believe there is an upper limit to the number of polka-dot items one can have in one’s wardrobe.
  7. I think I might be an atheist.  I haven’t really given it enough thought to be certain though.

I tag Tangerina, Ally and Octavia!  Not seven, but I’m messing up your memeish paradigm! Hahaha, &c.

Geekery

Yoinked from Ami Angelwings:

B5 fans, when you see this, post one of your favourite B5 quotes in your journal.

Who am I? I’m Susan Ivanova. Commander. Daughter of Andre and Sophie Ivanov. I am the right hand of vengeance and the boot that is going to kick your sorry ass all the way back to Earth, sweetheart. I am death incarnate, and the last living thing that you’re ever going to see. God sent me.

Best. Episode. Ever.

Aw, shucks

Never let it be said I’ll ignore a good meme (or praise, either!). I’ve been tagged by Deborah (and others) at The Hand Mirror, and darnit if that doesn’t make me go *squee* inside, because I bloody love THM.

The Rules!

1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded it to you.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Add links to these blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.

The nominations for Blogs QoT Likes are:

feminism + fandom = attitude problem – the blog of Bene Gesserit Witch; when I hit the post Where Women Have Gone Before I knew it was true love.

Fetch me my axe – belledame222 rocks my world.

Fuck Politeness – angry Aussie feminist/political rants, and I can’t get enough of the series on the Sydney Morning Herald‘s continuing quest to constantly sexualise athletes.

Questioning Transphobia – it’s all in the name, and I do not know what I did before finding Lisa’s awesome work.

Renegade Evolution – the God Emperor of Rome, sometimes Not Safe For Work but always kickin’ ass and taking names.

And just to fulfil my requisite Geek Quota:

Girls Read Comics (And They’re Pissed) – Feminist critiquing of comics (and related fandom), written by a Kiwi! What’s not to love?

Great White Snark – Okay, I admit, I just love the cakes tag.
