I filled this out over on [livejournal.com profile] ozqueen's journal, and decided to post it over here too, for the heck of it. :)


about me )
ndnickerson: (Default)

1: When you have a container of Neapolitan ice cream, what flavor do you leave for last?

2: Would you rather be caught in a thunderstorm without an umbrella or a snowstorm without boots?

3: Let's say you have access to a time machine, but it can only go either backward or forward. One or the other. Which do you choose and where do you go?

4: If you could choose to have any superpower ever, what would you pick?

5: Tomorrow morning, you wake up in the body of a celebrity, like in a '90s body-swap movie. Who is it? How do they react to your life? What do you do when you're "them"? Would you choose to switch back?

6: Any allergies?

7: What would you be more embarrassed to buy: sex toys or adult diapers?

8: Did you get enough sleep last night?

9: You're the sole witness to a Mafia murder. Witness protection has to set you up with a whole new life in a totally new country. You have to leave everything behind, but you can pick where you move to. Where do you go?

10: If you could star in a biopic about any famous person ever, who would it be?

11: What's the biggest animal you've ever killed? Bugs count.

12: Would you rather have millions of dollars but always feel nauseous when you go outside, or be dirt poor forever but never get sick again in your life?

13: A wizard offers you immortality in exchange for your two front teeth. Do you take it?

14: Could you win the Hunger Games?

15: What was your favorite Halloween costume as a kid? How about as a teen/adult?

16: Do you bite your nails?

17: What was the first movie you remember seeing in the theater?

18: Do you prefer music with male or female vocalists?

19: You and the love of your life are having a baby, and you get to choose the name! There's only one catch: your partner INSISTS that it be the name of a place, real or fictional. What do you name your baby?

20: If you could reboot or remake any movie, what would it be and who would you cast?

21: If you could automatically know how to speak any language or play any instrument, which would you choose?

22: For you, would getting amnesia be a good thing?

23: If you curse loudly and then realize that there are children nearby, what is your reaction?

24: Of what animal are you most afraid?

25: Pizza or oral sex?

26: Without looking them up, can you explain the rules of football? How about Quidditch? What do you think that says about you?

27: You're in the car, switching channels on the radio when you hear a song that makes you go "OH SHIT, THAT'S MY JAM!" What song is it?

28: Have you ever paid to see a Step Up movie? If not, how much would someone have to pay YOU to see a Step Up movie?

29: If you were being executed tonight, what would you choose for your last meal?

30: Have you ever bought an item of clothing because it reminded you of something a fictional character would wear?

31: If you were invisible for a day, what would you do?

32: Have you ever been punched in the face?

33: How do you take your ramen noodles?

34: Do you ever rehearse or plan conversations before you actually have them?

35: How much black do you wear on a regular basis (not counting funerals)?

36: Do you have any tattoos? Do you want any?

37: If someone offered you a free pet snake, would you take it? It's not dangerous or really big or anything. They're just moving to a place that doesn't allow pets.

38: Do you know how to pronounce the word "pinochle"?

39: Can you think of anything more boring than birdwatching?

40: Are you better with numbers or words?

41: At the movies, do you stay for the credits?

42: Is morality universal or relative?

43: Let's say you're getting married to someone you absolutely adore. The only catch is that you met them through a Craigslist hookup ad that was supposed to be just for one night of casual sex. Would you tell your friends how you and your fiance met?

44: What's the worst name you've ever been called?

45: Would you eat human flesh if it had been harvested and prepared humanely? (Say, from someone brain-dead who had marked him or herself down as an organ donor - same difference, right?)

46: At what age did you stop believing in Santa? Alternately, if you never believed in Santa, did you ever ruin Santa for anyone else?

47: Do you get along better with old people or little kids?

48: If you had to choose, would you rather become a nun/monk or a drug dealer?

49: What's your best bodily feature, objectively speaking?

50: Who is your favorite late night talk show host?

1. OH MAN I HAVE AN IDEA FOR A NEW STORY! It would be an AU futurefic.
2. THIS IS GONNA BE AWESOME.
3. But it's AU enough that I could eliminate the canon references and make it an original fic.
4. But... the scenario doesn't have enough plot to make it interesting if it isn't fanfic.
5. So I need more plot.
6. BUT IT SOUNDS SO UNORIGINAL AS ORIGINAL FIC.
7. Also I love the fandom characters so much that I'm super invested if I'm writing about them. It's not nearly as exciting with original characters.
8. But it could be. If I bring in that other fandom element and tweak it enough to make it original.
9. But what if no one wants to read it unless it's fanfic.
10. OH GOD WHAT SHOULD I DO.

Rinse and repeat.

My jury duty has been postponed! To next summer!

(A part of me hopes, just a little, that they'll forget about it in the meantime...)
ndnickerson: (Default)
Chuck fic is done and has been sent to be beta-read! Just got a great idea for a Lois & Clark fic! [livejournal.com profile] het_bigbang deadline for both those stories is in 16 days!

And what doc do I have open? A Nancy Drew porn battle (amnesty-round, no deadline) entry in progress.

Yep.

My priorities are totally in order.
ndnickerson: (Default)
just bought

• 3 pencil skirts (one yellow, one mustard and black, one deep red)
• 3 dresses (one red, one black, one grey)
• 4 pairs of pants (brown, black, black pinstripe, and khakis)
• 3 cardigans (mustard, black, and a cropped grey to match the grey dress)
• 7 shirts (2 white button-downs, 2 patterned, 3 basic solid scoopnecks)

I still need some shoes and possibly a black pencil skirt, but I'll check... and a big red belt would be awesome.

--

ETA: well, I checked my closet and I have a few black skirts that I can still wear (and a navy one, too), so I'll hold off on the skirt buying for a while.

also bought:

• 2 dresses (one brown lace, one brown patterned with a belt that is SO CUTE)
• 4 tops (nude, red, 2 patterned)
• Clinique bonus time WOOOOO!!!
• two pairs of shoes from Nine West: a pair of nude mary janes and a pair of turquoise peep-toe pumps

Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint - I'm super pale (like a shade below albino or whatever) and I thought this was a little too orange for me (the shade in the box was called glow). I prefer the Dr. Jart's I tried a while back to this. (Apparently Clinique also has something close to this that I might try because they actually seem to carry my "barely pigmented" skin tone.)
blinc Mascara - The fun thing about this is that the mascara turns into tubes around your lashes and after that it's supposed to be waterproof and smudgeproof. However, if you're like me and you apply mascara with hands as steady as those of an alcoholic coming off a three-day bender, you'll have to keep a tissue ready to wipe off the mistakes (mine gets all over my cheekbones, my already-applied eyeshadow, etc). But it gives my lashes great definition and I can confirm that at the end of the day, when I went to take it off and splashed my face - it didn't go anywhere. I kind of pulled it off like spidery false eyelashes, and that was fun. I do recommend it.
Tea Forté® minteas
Alterna BAMBOO® UV+ Color Protection Fade-Proof Fluide - Eh, this seemed okay but my hair has two textures: oily and frizzy. This seemed to help it go from the latter to the former.
Harvey Prince Hello - this smells really nice and summery. I like it a lot.
Birchbox Exclusive Earbuds
ndnickerson: (anchorman-scotchy scotch scotch)
had a bacon cheeseburger (minus the bun) for lunch and sashimi for dinner - tuna, salmon, red snapper, octopus, tamago, and surf clam. it was really good, although i had way too much wasabi with the first bite and thought my head was going to catch on fire. whew. also, one of the things in there (wasn't the tuna, salmon, or octopus, and probably wasn't the red snapper; it was yellow and had an almost spongy consistency) was really delicious.

Damn my decision to write in relatively non-active fandoms. (I'll look up my password for the Lois & Clark fic message boards if no one here volunteers, but I don't know where the Chuck fandom is hanging out these days.)

I need a beta reader for a Chuck post-series fic, 25k+ words, rated at least R.

I need a beta reader for a Lois & Clark post-series fic, 10k+ words, rated at least R.

They can be beta read by the same person, I don't mind. I do ask that whoever takes the job on a) is good at catching grammar/spelling problems and b) has at least seen the entire series once the whole way through and/or has access to episodes if he or she isn't familiar with the whole thing. If a) is the only one that applies to you and you're still interested, let me know.

I've started both but I'm nowhere near done, so it's not an immediate need. Fics are due August 26, which means I'd want to get the fic read and returned a week before that. If you'd need a certain amount of time, namely more than a week to beta-read, just let me know.

Feel free to share with other people who might be interested as appropriate.

Apothederm™ Stretch Mark Cream - I'm about to run out of cocoa butter so I'll be trying this soon. It's thinner than cocoa butter and it's supposed to dry before clothes are put over it, which is kind of irritating. I think it's hard to evaluate stretch mark cream unless it's over a long period, because there is no immediate miracle when it comes to stretch mark cream.
John Varvatos Star U.S.A. 1.7 oz - This is man cologne so I'll give it to my dad tomorrow.
Scalisi Skincare Anti-Aging Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30
theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac - The other stain I have (benetint) is also this shade of candy-apple red, and my lips are naturally pink. It gave a nice subtle color to my lips, although the stain felt like a clear gel, and I didn't really like that feel on my lips. I liked it better once I put lipgloss over it, and I don't really like having to use two products when I can get away with just one.
CleanWell Hand Sanitizing Wipes - Two individual packs came in the box! I've used one and liked it.
BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages by Cynthia Rowley Bundle - I can't wait to need one! They're so cute.
