(Started typing this up yesterday, and then got too tired to finish them meme and had to get some sleep. So let's try this again!)
Because I've been sick, I actually ended up not leaving home for the last week. (Aside from walking the dog, that is.) Not actually a big hardship for introvert-me. But then, today, my whole family went out to Applebee's for lunch. Which was lovely. Aside from the reminder of jus why
shouldn't leave the house, that is. *g*
Basically - my meal had french fries with it. If I'm gonna have french fries, naturally I'm gonna need to have ketchup. So, I pick up the bottle, and open it to squirt on my plate. Only, it doesn't squirt. Even before I start squeezing, it... explodes. On my plate, over the edge of my plate, on the table, on my skirt, on the front of my jacket, on the sleeve of my jacket... *sighs* So now I'm in the middle of the restaurant, and I've gotta clean the ketchup off myself. Start looking for a napkin, and... manage to catch my hand on my water glass. My very large water glass, which, since it is the beginning of the meal, is also very full. Water goes flying, ice slides across the table, into the walkway... and, since I'm at the back of a circular booth, there's really nothing I can do to mitigate the damage. Or, y'know, flee the scene. I think we had three servers, all told, helping to clean things up. In the middle of the lunch rush.
Eh, maybe I should just stay home for another week. XD
And now - a couple of memes! First one's a literary one from goldvermilion87
. If there are a bunch of typos in my answers, it'd be because things have been glitching oddly. My browser, my computer, LJ in general... I tried to go through and fix them, but I'm not sure if I caught everything. ( Long meme of longness under the cut! )
And a second meme, this one from hakaisha
-Name me a character and I will tell you:- Why I love them or why I wish they'd go die in a fire.- My OTP for the character- My favorite gen relationship with this character.- An unpopular opinion about this character.- One thing I wish would [have] happen[ed] with this character in canon.- An idea I have for the character that I haven't written yet/won't ever write for whatever reason
Can be for any of my fandoms. If you don't know/can't remember if I like one that you do, just ask. ;D
ETA: Seriously LJ, what is up with this? It seems to be removing the characters immediately before and after any italicized section, even if I go back and fix it. Whyyyyyy....
