Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

Last week [ profile] moveoverramsey and I robbed a bank (-50 points). In January I got in line at the supermarket at the same time as someone else and I didn't yield (-8 points). Last Monday I ruled Canada as a cruel and heartless dictator (-700 points). In October I gave change to a homeless guy (19 points). In November I bought porn for [ profile] thecesspit (10 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-729 points). For Christmas I deserve a lump of coal!

If you see this on your friends list, quote some Shakespeare.

I am mad but north-north-west
When the wind is southerly, I know a hawk from a handsaw

Hamlet, Act II scene II

...this time started by [ profile] tyrell and has already appeared on a selection of other journals on my f-list while I was out at lunch. And in lieu of working...

list 5 things you *actually* did today, even if they're too small to normally mention.

1. Lay in the bath with a crap book for half an hour. This is a fairly normal morning thing for me when I'm working at home, doubly so when my legs are in post-refereeing ache mode.

2. Picked tomatoes. They are red and plentiful and yummy. And many more to go. Hurrah.

3. Unloaded the dishwasher. Eight years on the novelty of having a machine that does my washing up has still to wear off. I hate washing up that much.

4. Teased Bruce in the ticket office at Hither Green station for having a very pink face after two days out in the sun. He claims his wife looks even sillier - apparently she has a red face and panda-eyes from her sunglasses.

5. Declined a second bottle of wine at lunch. Only because I've got to drive to the printers to pick a job up later. Not because I'm losing my touch. Honest.

As spied on [ profile] stu_n's journal. And because I'm bored of reading newspapers.

Look at your LJ "interests" list. If you have fewer than 50 interests, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five interests, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five interests, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em.

List them in your LJ, and tell everyone exactly what it is about these things that interests you so much.

As thieved from [ profile] 1phish2phish.

I'll post a lyric to kick it off. Post other song lyrics in response--one line, a chorus, however much it takes to say what you want to say. The lyrics you post must have some relation to the lyrics you are responding to. Post as often as you like, to as many different responses as you like. All responses should be song lyrics, with the band identified in the subject line. Let's see how many different songs we can find; feel free to be obscure; try to infect people with earworms.

To start (since it's a glorious sunny day out there and I'm about to drive up the M11 with the roof down)...


Sun is shinin' in the sky,
There ain't a cloud in sight
It's stopped rainin'
Everybody's in a play
And don't you know
It's a beautiful new day.

Nicked from [ profile] 1phish2phish

1) Pick your playlist of 10-15 songs
2) Set to shuffle/random
3) Choose your favourite line from each song (excluding the title)
4) Write down in a list and have other users identify the song...

(my modification: set iPod to random shuffle and pick first 10 tracks)

EDIT: answers added...

1. Respect yourself and all of those around you
Prince Charming, Adam & the Ants
2. But as dead, dead as a can be by his feet; de ya ken?
Several species of small furry animals, grooving in a cave with a Pict, Pink Floyd
3. You know that I've been drunk a thousand times
Size of a cow, Wonder stuff
4. Why pamper life's complexity
This charming man, The Smiths
5. Eyes move, this can die
Take me out, Franz Ferdinand - actually the Scissor Sisters' cover
6. And we won't be together much longer
Ever fallen in love, Buzzcocks
7. Where the books were found by the golden ones
Oh you pretty things, David Bowie
8. And through the slippery city we ride
Metal Mickey, Suede
9. All of my resistance is lying on the floor
Way down, Elvis Presley
10. I told them, 'Drink something new'
Mandinka, Sinead O'Connor

Not quite the first 10 in my iPod's random shuffle: number 3 was Hocus Pocus by Focus which isn't exactly stuffed with lyrics, and number 8 was in Norwegian so a little unfair...

Have a feeling that too many of these will be too easy! Maybe I should have waded through it to increase the Weird Shit quota.

Since I'm on a mission for snail extermination in my garden, I'm alarmed snail came this far up the list. And I'm not remotely a dog person. It's clearly rubbidge.

I'd much rather be a cat.

You scored as Dolphin.
