Why do you keep winking at me, Mama?  

I never realised that Fabian and Gideon Prewett were Molly Weasley's brothers.

I can be such a dumbass some days. Like all the ones with a 'y' in them.

Time to propagate the art-meme!

After lanitha created my purtyful cat icon *points* I feel obliged to inflict this on ye all. Besides, if anyone takes it up, it'll give me something to do at, you know, art college.

- Comment and I'll pick one of your LJ interests and draw you a picture. You lucky, lucky people.

- You have no say in what I draw. Which seems rather cruel, but there you go; life is full of hardship, particularly if you happen to be called Annie.


- Put this in your journal. And the picture someone drew for you. Because lj is all about blatant blackmail.

...the enrichment of her mind by extensive reading.

Despite many worthier books, such as Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell (yes, and does anyone else think that reads like Jane Austen trying to write Harry Potter?) staring at me from my floor (I've run out of space on my bookshelves, even two-deep) I've started reading one of Patrick's Christmas books, The Children of the Lamp. Hmm. Reserving judgement until I can decide if John and Philippa are Sue/Stues or not... Oh, and The Time Traveller's Wife? Or should I say 'Traveler'...worth going past page thirty-seven or what?

Oh! Oh! Oh!! I want a picture!!

Of course! Ooh, nice icon, too. xD
Insufferable, man.cynicalpirate on January 8th, 2005 06:42 am (UTC)
Is it just me, or is Jane Austen writing HP not the best idea ever?
*coughs loudly* You'd better not choose my interest 'having people's babies'. Or maybe you should. 'Twould be amusing...

I can't recall the HP books ever mentioning that they were siblings, but then again my mind has been severely screwed by fanon. I just tend to accept things now.

Hermione's an American pureblood? Snape has a long-lost werewolf daughter? Sure, whatever you say. *nods in agreement and smiles serenely*

Yes. It's not just you.
Yes, because my knowledge of giving birth pictorally (pictorily?) is so extensive. Wait, you actually have that listed? o.O

No, I think 'twas her website actually.

ARE THEY NOT CANON?!!!?

Put what in my journal? *is confused* ah well. But pictures, yay! So then will I have a new icon? Coolio.

Hang on... days with a y in them. That would be... *counts* uh. all of them? Now that kind of disproves the argument, no? If you're clever enough to realise that all the days have 'y' in, you are surely no dumbass. Or maybe I'm just too easily impressed.

Right. I'm off to sharpen up my LJ interests in readiness. Or not, because I am lazy.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 8th, 2005 09:13 am (UTC)
No, I can't actually make icons, I just wish I could. I'll just be drawing you a picture based on one of your interests. Again, to re-iterate, you LUCKY PERSON...

Naw mate, that's a standard rip-off quip. I steal them from all over. I have no scruples when it comes to (potentially) making people laugh. xD

I started Jonathan Strange the other day, but got distracted by The Best of Sci-Fi 2003 (because it has a story by Neil Gaiman in it ><)... But yes, your description seems pretty accurate.

And do me a picture! Pwetty pweeze (come on, how can you resist such atrocious spelling? :P)!
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 8th, 2005 12:16 pm (UTC)
I got distracted by ...And that's when it came off in my hand. It's an easy book to get distracted from!

Of course I will, mate!

Oh, bone to pick! Bone to pick! Where are the promised Shoebox icons, hmm? And your hamster is scary today! I think even R/S kissing would be better than a glowy eyed rodent.

Does this mean I get a drawing? :)
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 8th, 2005 12:17 pm (UTC)
Sadness! For the person who will tell me how to inflict - I mean, apply them, has gone off until Tuesday.

Very...keen, aren't we? *g*

If you want a drawing, a drawing you shall have!

Don't feel dumb about not knowing the Prewett connection. I didn't either until I read it on J.K.'s site.

Hee hee! I love the cat with the... what is it, a lime rind on its head? Hee!

I'm desperately thinking now if I mentioned them in a fic without realising...oof.

A melon, I think! lanitha had an obliging cat, a melon and a sharp knife one boring night...and the rest, as they say, is history...

I've started Jonathan Strange as well, but I think I'm only on page 40 or something of a gajillion. I hope it picks up.. I'm sure it will. It has to.

anyway, I would love it if you would draw a picture! :D I wish i had more abstract interests, but alas.. have fun :p
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 8th, 2005 12:22 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I have to say it's not immediately gripping...but I reckon it'll be worth the opening slog!

Sure thing, mate!

? I wasn't aware "dumbass" had a "y" in it . . . ? Wait, what? :(?

AND OMG DO ME.

(. . . uh.)

*g* I read "JSaMN" (I am not typing that name out.)
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 8th, 2005 01:08 pm (UTC)
All the days with a y in, hon. *pets*

I will, er, do you, begad. A picture, that is. xD

Bit of a slow starter, innit? I'm thinking...

every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 8th, 2005 01:41 pm (UTC)
Absolutely! *goes off to scan interests* This is rather fun...although less fun will be having to draw stuff that people will not cry at the sight of. Heh.
Liz_eliza_b on January 8th, 2005 01:54 pm (UTC)
Don't think there's anything embarassing in my interests... well, nothing too embarassing...could I have a picture?

Love the icon, especially the WTF part.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 8th, 2005 04:04 pm (UTC)
Absolutely! Don't worry, I don't think I could draw anything embarrasing anyway...*g*

lanitha must be worshipped!

Just can't resist replying to anything involving tolls and cars. Worried about the lack of Sirius/Remus respect on your friends' list, Scoradh. You are going to have to do something about this. Or not. ^_^
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on January 8th, 2005 04:06 pm (UTC)
Haha, one of my RL mates thought she had to pay a real toll! V. amusing. To me, anyway!

I KNOW! In fact, at least half of them are more Discworld than Potterverse *cue shocked gasps*. I think I'll have to go through the R/S on interests and go on a friending spree...xD
