Not dead, just teaching. *g* I survived my first week, and will be posting more on my teaching filter once I'm a bit more organized (comment here if you want to be added to it!). I've been wavering between exhausted and overly emotional for good two-thirds of the time and sleeping for the rest. I've also been gradually moving into [livejournal.com profile] narnia_girl's and my new apartment, which is really nice - two floors, lots of space and light.

I had a dream last night that I was walking in France with my mom and we were looking for a bistro called Rue du Bagel to have breakfast in! *g* Along the way, we passed Rue du Cannes, which was a bakery with a lot of fancy cakes in the window. No, I don't know why I persisted giving street names to eateries. In any case, I felt sufficiently European this morning to have a double shot of espresso, but they didn't give me a demitasse (essential for pretending you're in Italy and do not have grading to do, I find), so I added milk and sugar to get a makeshift latte. *g*

But first a warning: HP Spoilers? DO NOT WANT. I will be picking up a copy at a midnight party and reading throughout the night - I am doing my best to avoid spoilers without avoiding the Internet entirely until then!

That said, I'm finally doing this meme:

1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favorite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.


[livejournal.com profile] lynnmonster asked me these cool questions:

1. Do you eat fish? (If not, do you eat any meats? If so, do you like it, love it, or merely tolerate it?)

I used to eat quite a lot of sushi, but I've cut back since I got food poisoning from bad tuna. ^^; I don't tend to like cooked fish, but I eat and enjoy meat (despite having been traumatized by a NYT article years back on how beef is prepared for human consumption). However, when I'm cooking for myself, I find it easier and cheaper to go completely veggie.

2. What would you say is your biggest fannish love of all time, even if it's not a current one?

Methos! Snarky, cute Immortal with a lovely accent (and an angsty past my teenage self just adored), what else could I ask for? I've never written very much Methos (or other HL) fic, but I've read a lot, and I keep coming back to him, despite the charms of the likes of Mckay, RayK, Duo, and so forth! *grins*

3. How long is your hair?

Very short, usually! (And unlike my default icon. *g*) When it grows out to chin length, I tie a scarf around it to keep hair out of my face. Eventually, it'll really start to bother me, and I'll go and get it all chopped off. *g*

4. What's a pet peeve of yours?

Writers who confuse discreet (as in a secret) and discrete (as in not continuous). I see it online a lot, and I'm always afraid I'll start doing it too!

5. What is something you can rely on to lift your mood?

My current favourite music. Beloved fanfic or books, especially if they're funny. Being online, particularly if I'm talking to friends. ^_^

If you guys want any questions, you know what to do!
