Various and Sundry

Well, I was planning to watch movies with C tonight, but he chose a movie I really don't want to watch ("Time Bandits"), so I'm doodling around online instead. Which, of course, means memes, mostly, although I have something "real" to mention.

I'll start with the cool, non-memey one. (Wow. non-memey is a real word according to spellcheck? O_o). It's really quite a wonderful GTD/lifehack thingy, something I'd forgotten all about until it reappeared for me tonight (right on schedule). It's a way of tagging del.icio.us bookmarks so that you will be sent a reminder whenever you would like one. To be perfectly honest, I have NO IDEA what I did to set it up - it was a while ago, and I've forgotten. It has something to do with adding the tag "tagmindr" to a del.icio.us bookmark, and also a tag which specifies when the reminder should be sent. Then, you need a way to see the RSS feed which will be generated at the appropriate time (easy enough for me; I just added it to my LJ RSS feeds). Um, so if anyone is interested in more details about how to do this, let me know and I'll get the info. It is a really good idea, though. And today I was reminded that I have a bunch of 35mm negatives that I want to send away to be digitally scanned. W00t! (Although, really, I must hang my head in SHAME for the lack of concrete details in this paragraph. GTD? If only I had a photo of Henry Rollins looking angry, I would have GTTFD and found the info before I posted this. ;) I do need to do a big "GTD/what's working; what isn't" post sometime soon, but it ain't gonna happen tonight. :D

Now, for the memeage:

Some WoW silliness - I don't even know what this means in WoW since I've never played, but I love D&D-style druids, (plus, it says I'm sexy! Hee! Of course, I think I checked the box that said "I'm sexy" so maybe that's why, but still. Not complaining. *giggles*). Might be reasonably accurate anyway:

Night Elf Druid


Night Elves are the sexiest of the bunch. They're the hot flower children of Warcraft: at one with nature, and dancing all the while.

As a druid, you tend to be relaxed and accepting - though if there is something you don't want to do, then you won't do it - simple as that. You're an easygoing and versatile person.

Um, okay, so also I have to admit that I'm very boring when I take these quizzes. I never check the answers like "I love to blow things up, or kill small animals." Ah well.

Finally, vivid_cognition - have you seen this before? It went around a few years ago, so maybe you have. But if not? You TOTALLY need to check this out. Just for the heck of it, I retook the quiz:

The Dante's Inferno Test has sent you to the First Level of Hell - Limbo!
Here is how you matched up against all the levels:
Purgatory (Repenting Believers)Moderate
Level 1 - Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers)Very High
Level 2 (Lustful)High
Level 3 (Gluttonous)Low
Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious)Very Low
Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy)Low
Level 6 - The City of Dis (Heretics)Very Low
Level 7 (Violent)Moderate
Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers)High
Level 9 - Cocytus (Treacherous)Low

Take the Dante's Divine Comedy Inferno Test

You are one of the lucky ones! Because of your virtue and beliefs, you have escaped eternal punishment. You are sent to the First Level of Hell - Limbo!

First Level of Hell - Limbo

Charon ushers you across the river Acheron, and you find yourself upon the brink of grief's abysmal valley. You are in Limbo, a place of sorrow without torment. You encounter a seven-walled castle, and within those walls you find rolling fresh meadows illuminated by the light of reason, whereabout many shades dwell. These are the virtuous pagans, the great philosophers and authors, unbaptised children, and others unfit to enter the kingdom of heaven. You share company with Caesar, Homer, Virgil, Socrates, and Aristotle. There is no punishment here, and the atmosphere is peaceful, yet sad.

Ha ha ha ha. I scored high on "lust." Although not high enough to really end up in a lot of permanent trouble, apparently. ;)

ETA: OMG, baroquestar - remember M's suggestion for my book title? I might be able to use it, after all. Sooner or later, I'm going to write a book in which Satan makes an appearance (actually, he'll be one of the main characters), and I'll probably use Dante as a sort of "theme" for the book. Maybe that one could be called "Dis, or That?" or something. Hee hee hee! Your daughter is not only clever, but prophetic, as well. :D

I saw the tagmindr thing a while back and bookmarked it to look into later. YES, I'M AWARE OF THE IRONY HERE.

Also, your quiz said this, which is all true:

"Gnomes are strange little things. Fascinated with gadgets and shiny things, gnomes are often plotting and planning - but are pretty smart, despite all the explosions.

You're a creepy, creepy warlock. You delight in the darker things in life - such as setting people on fire, and delight in the macabre. You'd probably fake your own death just to freak people out by getting up from the casket at your funeral."

I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling ironic about the Tagmindr feature. I mean, come on! Such a great lifehack, and I can only half-way remember how it works? *rolls eyes at self*

LOL! I can totally picture you faking your own funeral. ;)

(Oh, and make sure to see the ETA I just added; as you know the young lady in question personally, you might get a kick out of it).

I wish I had an icon of one of my Oblivion characters, but I don't. WAH!

Also . . . Explosions? I bet you DID say you like to blow things up, didn't you?

Dec. 2nd, 2007 06:05 am (UTC)
Not merely explosions, but also sharp, shiny things and setting things on fire!

Now, my list of things to do today (it's a productive day!) says that I should be asking you how you are getting on with the belly piercing! Has your body just decided that it's not for you, or did you make some progress with the nickel-free jewellery?

Dec. 2nd, 2007 06:48 am (UTC)
Oh YAY that you asked. I've been meaning to say something to you for ages, and I keep forgetting. This is perfect. :D

It is doing fantastically well! It's still not completely healed but it is SO much happier now, and seems to be well on the way to total health. I'm not concerned about it at all now, so thank you thank you thank you for your sage advice! I'm really glad I didn't just take it out and give up (well, I had taken it out; I'm glad I didn't give up, though). :D

Woohoo! That's great news! Most of the problem piercings I've come across (with the exception of the fourteen year olds who keep TOUCHING THEIR PIERCING) seem to be triggered by nickel sensitivity. Yay for the piercing and tattooing knowledge gained at the Office Job of Doom. :D

Because of your virtue and beliefs, you have escaped eternal punishment.

I'll just be down here in the Malebolge, kickin' it hardcore with my fellow sinners homies.

I know, I KNOW! I'm so disgustingly wholesome! (Or maybe I lied).

(Sadly, I don't think I DID lie, come to think of it).

*sobs woefully at being so wusstastically virtuous*

Seriously, isn't a high level of lust good for ANYTHING these days? O_o

I am completely in favour of any title with a pun on "Dis."

No, srsly.
