1. The Writer's Guide to Character Traits by Linda N. Edelstein
- Bought it at Barnes & Noble.
- It reads like a Psychology textbook.
- It's helping me understand my fantasy novel MMC.
- It has an entire section on sexual abnormalities.
- The picture on the front is frightening.

2. Goldfish "Colors"
- I call them the Gayfish.
- They have the "same great cheddar taste!"
- There's green in there . . . weird.
- Zero grams of trans fat!
- Contains onion powder.

3. Nintendo 64
- We bought it used for $20.
- It came with a blue controller.
- I use it more than my younger brothers to play Zelda and the Ocarina of Time.
- I recently pwned my cousin on it in Super Smash Brothers.
- It's pretty much the best game console ever.

4. What Would Your Character Do? by Eric Maisel
- Anne Maisel helped.
- It contains personality quizzes for analyzing characters, and various scenarios to put them through in order to learn more about their behaviour.
- I've only read one of the thirty scenarios ("Family Picnic") and it's already inspired a short story spin-off and a sequel.
- Scenario #7 is entitled "Flirting."
- Initially, I didn't think these scenario things were going to work.

5. My laptop. Lappy.
- It's an Apple iBook G4.
- I got it for Christmas this past year.
- The keyboard came off during April (April Fools, incidentally).
- On it is saved everything I've written in 2006.
- The keyboard's coming off again.

4. cat
-her name is Dancer

5. Laptop

Oh boy. Nothing really interesting around here, but okay.

1. HP 7500 monitor
- It came with the computer that my mom bought from her work (HarperCollins).
- It's mostly gray... or is that silver?
- The screen is probably incredibly dusty.
- There's a stuffed dog sitting on top of it.
- I got it as an Easter present. Sort of.

2. Air Conditioner
- It's like 80 outside, so it's running right now.
- It makes a heck of a lot of noise.
- It kept me up all night last night until 3:00, which is why I'm not working today.
- I broke the dial on it last year, so the only way to turn it off is to hit the power switch.
- Since the dial's broke, the setting stays on high.

3. Blue Cup
- It's blue. (Haha, sorry.)
- It's sitting on a Penn State paw print cup-holder-thing.
- It's empty.
- There used to be orange juice inside of it.
- It's plastic.

4. Clock
- It's sitting on a shelf on the desk.
- It's black, with red numbers showing the time.
- The time is usually always wrong, it's extra fast.
- I have to reset it about once a week.
- It's a radio, too.

5. Phone
- It's green.
- It has a cord.
- It's our second phone line, the one the computer uses.
- As such, since I'm always online, I never use it.
- It's collecting dust like everything else.

There. :) That was interesting. Now I have about 600 more posts to catch up on.

=) Me too~
that's an idea...

New location (friend's house, using his laptop), New 5x5

1. laptop
-it's not mine
-i enjoy typing on it with the smooth keys
-it's pretty much silver and black
-i'm not use to the mouse square thingy in the middle, at the bottom of the keyboard
-i prefer plugging a regular mouse in

2. pop can
-it's Nestea Iced Tea
-i've only sipped it twice
-it's almost full og liquid
-there's condensation on the side of it, making it look like the can is sweating
-it's super cold

3. bracelet
-i bought it from Richmond Night Market about a year ago
-it's a large silver chain design with a single charm attached
-the charm is the "male" sign, a circle with and arrow attached
-on the circle, the words "I Love You forever" are visibly engraved
-it was because of the above phrase that made me think it was cute and the reason why i bought it

4. The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
-it's one of the two books i'm currently reading
-i've only reached one-fourth of the book
-i'm caught up in it, enjoying it immensely
-the cover has a dark, long-haired female astride a pure white horse while she's holding a glowing sword (presumably Excalibur)
-it's from a female's point of view about the take of King Arthur (GO GIRLS - hahahha...)

5. curtains
-the sun is somewhat shining through it
-it appears a bit old and yellowed (unless it's suppose to be a light shade of yellow)
-there are flowers depicted on it with fancy strips of grey in between
-they are about a metre long, hanging down
-it doesn't really appeal to me which is why i was hesitant to put it down on this list (but i realized that it just challenged me to write down 5 things about it *shrug*)

Five things to avoid doing REAL work (at work and my writing)

1) My Post It Holder
- is actually two holders combined into one
- the big one is made of cardboard and the smaller one is made of plastic
- the big one has Tony Stewart's car and picture all over it
- the small one is made of clear plastic
- it has three pads of post its in it: blue, purple, blue

2) My stuffed bunny
- I bought him to support March of Dimes
- His name is Plot
- He's white, and has a red and black plaid bow around his neck
- He has had emergency bunny surgery twice (once on his paw, and once on his bottom because beads were falling out)
- He usually has an annoyed bunny-look on his face

3) Nohohon
- Looks like this because it is WAAY too hard to describe what he looks like.
- His name is "Smilin' Bob" (yes, after the guy in the Enzyte commercials on American TV)
- Is also known as a "Nidamari no Tami" or "sunshine person"
- Sits on my desk smiling away so I can stare at him while having bad calls
- Continually bobs his head to the left and to the right (until I shut him off)

4) My Incense Holder
- Its circular with a cover
- Its made of soap stone
- the holes in it are carved to look like simple flowers
- its tan, pink, and brown
- it actually doesn't hold incense...it holds Dragon's Blood scented fragrance beads (again for the relaxation)

5) My Plant
- He's named Leafy
- he's a bamboo plant, with several stalks combined to look like a pencil holder
- I bought him, nearly dead, from Walmart, and brought him back to live
- He sits in a tan pot with a maroon ribbon around his base
- I have no idea how I'm going to bring him home and then bring him to work in two weeks and take care of him when I'm going to be gone to Florida, because I know my cats will snack on his leaves.
