Animated Movie Meme

Okay, something a little lighter today. Found this on Antick Musings and shamelessly grabbed it for my use. 🙂 Go ahead and grab it for yourself.

Meme: Every Goddamn Animated Movie Ever Made (Almost)
I got this meme from a new source, Warren Peace Sings The Blues, and, as usual, it’s one of those long annotate-this-list things:

All the animated movies in the world, sort of

– X what you saw
– O what you haven’t finished/seen or saw sizable portions
– Bold what you loved
– Italicize what you disliked/hated
– Leave unchanged if neutral

A bit of Nano Wisdom

YOU KNOW YOU’RE AN AUTHOR IF…

You talk to yourself a lot.

You talk to yourself about talking to yourself. (e.g. ‘Why do I constantly ask my self random things?’)

When you talk to yourself you often talk to yourself like you’re talking to someone else. (e.g. ‘Have you ever noticed that deliver could mean someones liver?’)

After uttering a profound peice of wisdom like that above, you stare at the cookie in your hand with awe and say, ‘Holy crap, this stuff is great for sugar highs…’

You live off of sugar and caffeine (the two greatest things ever discovered!)

You’ll check your e-mail every day of the week and then disappear off the face of the earth.

You’re e-mails tend to be pages long and incredibly random.

When replying to an e-mail, you’ll never actually address the point of it.

You tend to collect Bic Sticks off the ground like picking pennies off the ground.

No matter where you are in a room you never have to get up to find a pen/pencil and paper.

The letters on your keyboard are wearing off.

Your friends and family think that you have carpal tunnel syndrome.

People think you have A.D.D.

You think it’d be cool to have A.D.D.

You constantly start talking in third person, present or past tense.

You start thinking about making lists like this and start giggling for no “apparent” reason

Your friends stopped looking at you funny for no apparent reason a loooooong time ago.

And FINALLY, the one way to tell if you’re a good writer: You failed English 101.

(copy that into you’re profile if you fit one or more of the descriptions)

If you’ve ever talked to yourself, copy and paste this into your profile.

I call BS on all the situations below

I found this randomly on fanfiction.net. I think it needs to be spread around some more:

I am the boy who never finished high school, because I got called a fag everyday.

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.

I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

We are the couple who had the Realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised.

The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

I am the woman who died when the EMT stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn’t have to always deal with society hating me.

I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don’t believe, but because they closed their doors to my ‘kind.’

I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love. I am the person ashamed to tell my own friends I’m a lesbian, because they constantly make fun of them.

I am the boy tied to a fence, beaten to a bloody pulp and left to die because two straight men wanted to “teach me a lesson”

124 SciFi/Fantasy Novels Everyone Should Read

A Meme from Stainless Steel Droppings that I just have to do.

(Edited Sept. 2012)

Evidently Guardian has been running a series called 1000 Novels Everyone Must Read.

They have broken these out into various sections, including one for Science Fiction and Fantasy that contains 124 Must Reads. Lists of this sort always generate controversy and this one will probably be no different. I imagine that, like me, you will be surprised at some of the books that are categorized as ’science fiction and fantasy’. No complaints from me, though, there are some great books on this list.

Just for fun I decided to do the meme myself. Bold titles are those I have read, and, to throw a twist in, italicized titles are books I actually own and have on the to-read shelf.

Get a Life Meme -76

Okay, I had to do this one. I scored a 76, which somehow means I have a life. Who knew?

If you do it, give me a heads up so I can take a look.

It was originally posted by Miles Kurland.

I found it on Greg Laden’s Blog.

SUPPOSEDLY if you’ve seen over 85 movies, you have no life. Mark the ones you’ve seen. There are 219 movies on this list. Copy this list, then paste it on facebook or on your blog. Then, put x’s next to the movies you’ve seen, add them up, change the header adding your number, and click publish at the side.

5 Budget Busters Meme

Debt-Free Revolution did an open-tag on this meme. Basically, you list the five things that drive you over budget, keep you from meeting your budget, or otherwise make you spend your money when you don’t need to.

For me?

Number 1 has to be books – Whether they’re graphic novels, hardbacks, or paperbacks, I love books. I have manga subscriptions. I have an ever-growing list on Amazon. The only mitigation I can see is that I’m going to the library more often and I’m now selling books on Amazon as well as buying them. It doesn’t keep me from wanting more of them though.

Netflix – I don’t always watch my three movies a month and so I’m probably over-paying on this. I just refuse to give the service up. It keeps me from buying three movies a month and having them gathering dust in a corner. I know people keep crying about cutting out subscriptions, but I just can’t give this one up. It’s still cheaper than going to the movies or to Blockbuster. I haven’t seen a movie in the theater since Pirates 3 came out.

Buying my lunch – I hate taking my lunch to work. I forget it, don’t want it, or I forget to bring the things home to wash them. (I can’t conscience using completely disposable things for lunch when I have the option of using real silverware.) So, I buy my lunch. It’s built into my budget. Still, I could save a lot of money by bringing my lunch every day, so it’s definitely an indulgence.

Traveling – I love to travel. My family (my parents and myself) take at least one if not two trips per year. We end up spending money in Disney or Vegas or somewhere else all because we just can’t stand being at home for one more minute. I’ve got a case of wandering feet that I have to slake or else I’d probably sell almost everything, but the rest in storage, quit my job and take off on a road trip doing pick up work, writing books and articles, and generally saying F-off to the world. (Only to be cruelly reminded that I really like the house I’m living in right now and I like having a steady paycheck.)

My Alice in Wonderland collection – If I see something, I usually get it because it’s incredibly hard to find things for this. I do try to keep it within reason. A five dollar purse or a ten dollar figuring as opposed to the two-hundred plus dollar Toby mugs that I really, really, want to get.

So, really, that’s it. And how I ended up posting two personal-finace articles in a row as opposed to clearing out my Boing Boing feed and bitching about the TSA, I have no idea.

Consider this an open-tag to any non-Personal-Finance bloggers out there. Leave me a comment and a link if you decide to take me up on it. I’d love to see it.
