Because it feels like a while since I've done a meme, even though it probably isn't.

More than you ever wanted to know about how I feel about books )

Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!

From [livejournal.com profile] oursin:

# Reply to this post with 'Icons!', and I will pick five of your icons.

# Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.

# Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.

# This will - allegedly - create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Here are the ones she chose for me to talk about: )

In other news: Grundys at Grange Farm again! I will admit to shedding a tear.

Also, today as I was driving up the A14 I was struck by the number of familiar names on the roadsigns. So, a quiz! Drabbles for anyone who can identify the people (real or imaginary) I associate with these road signs:

1. Hemingford Grey
2. Barham
3. Molesworth
4. Titchmarsh
5. Cranford

Your result for The Jane Austen heroine Test...

Elinor Dashwood

54% romance, 33% sauciness, 64% etiquette, 72% intelligence

You're always aware of social obligations and have more than your fair share of sense. You would never say something out of anger or in poor taste. This may lead some (like, perhaps, your saucy little sister) to accuse you of being cold. Nothing could be further from the truth! It's just that you don't believe in making a scene. Respectable gentlemen everywhere swoon for you (though you'd never admit it). But you only have eyes for one. He is lucky to have you.

Ideal matches: Edward Ferrars, Mr. Knightley, Captain Wentworth

Guaranteed heartbreak: John Willoughby, John Thorpe

Not worthy of your affections: Frank Churchill, Captain Benwick

So, I know many on my flist will be laughing hollowly at the distant recollection of life before 40, but I still have 6 and a bit years to get some of this done.

I have only just noticed that the HP character meme which was going around a week or so ago is actually called 'The Harry Potter Combatibility Test.' So clearly I win as Bellatrix Lestrange. Unless anyone got Molly Weasley?

Here's how it works:

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."

2. I will respond by asking you five questions.

3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.

4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.

5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Here are the questions Frankie asked me: )

At the start of the year I did two writing memes here.  And while I'm not quite ready for a round up of 2007 (there are still 4 good writing days to go!) I was interested to see what I was thinking about a year ago.



There we go.  It's interesting to see how focussed I was on fanfic a year ago and now my original stories have taken higher priority.
