[personal profile] roane was kind enough to give me seven things to ramble about. Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

I will spare my f-list lengthy rambling and hide the whole thing behind a cut )

First off, thanks [livejournal.com profile] zooz ! ;-P

A. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
B. Tag seven people to do the same.
C. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it."

1: I hate washing and polishing windows with the passion of a thousand fiery suns. So mostly I look out at the world through a nice thick layer of filth.

2: I don't shave my legs more than twice a year. I don't see the point, TBH.

3: I love, love, love the movie Wing Commander. No, I don't know why.

4: I re-read Frank Herbert's Dune-series every five or ten years. I always see something new that I hadn't noticed before.

5: I hate having my face under water - and even in the shower, I try not to have the spray running down my face.

6: My nails, especially my thumb-nails tend to split in two, thickness-wise. I can often peel off a whole layer off of the top of the nail. (Fortunately only the tip, though).

7: I have big dark birth-marks around my body that I take great pains to cover in sun-lotion before going out in the summer. Even if I'm only going shopping.

I tag... oh, well, here goes: [livejournal.com profile] b_sweens , [livejournal.com profile] fabularasa , [livejournal.com profile] green_grrl , [livejournal.com profile] ph290 , [livejournal.com profile] m_dk , [livejournal.com profile] psychedk , [livejournal.com profile] pepper_field 

Enjoy, you guys. Or, y'know, ignore... ;-)

[livejournal.com profile] pepper_field had this thing, and I wanted in.

Although... looking at my options, here, I'm not sure why... ;-)

1. John Sheppard
2. Spock
3. Jethro Gibbs


Okay *takes deep breath*.

Cliff: I want to say John Sheppard here, 1) because he's really got a significant death-wish, 2) he's so much into his self-sacrificial head-space he'd jump if I gave him half a chance and 3) despite 1 and 2, he always survives! I dunno... maybe the Daedalus would swing by and transport him out of thin air or something. But, well, the thing is - much though I love Spock? I wouldn't want to marry or shag him, so... bye-bye Spock *dropkicks Spock off the cliff and watches a transport-shimmer pick him up* Oh, well, I guess he's going to a good home. :-)

Shag: Decisions, decisions. Hmmm.... For sheer hotness-factor, I'd have to go with Gibbs. Also... wouldn't want to be married to the man. Gentleman, he may be, but he's gone through a bloody awful lot of wives...

Marry: Although I'd have a pretty good shot with Gibbs in this category (yes, I'm actually a red-head), I'm going to have to go with John Sheppard on this one. He's so cute - and deadly. Good combination in my book.

*wanders off happily to shag Gibbs and marry Sheppard*

*limps back, sad and alone*

Damn it! You could've told me! Not only did DiNozzo catch me shagging Gibbs (and kick me out of his house rather... forcefully), Rodney caught up with me at the altar and threatened - in front of God and everyone - to get rid of me with a nuclear bomb if I didn't get my paws of his man. *sighs* Oh well... back to the drawing-board.

Drop me a line if you want three to play with. :-)

2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
4. Tag 10 friends.
5. Everyone tagged has to do the same thing.
6. Have Fun!

Behind a cut... )
Whosoever wants to have fun with this - gank away! I'm too lazy to tag anyone this morning. :-D
