You're A Prayer for Owen Meany!

by John Irving

Despite humble and perhaps literally small beginnings, you inspire
faith in almost everyone you know. You are an agent of higher powers, and you manifest
this fact in mysterious and loud ways. A sense of destiny pervades your every waking
moment, and you prepare with great detail for destiny fulfilled. When you speak, IT
SOUNDS LIKE THIS!




Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.




... um, okay. What book is that, again?

My Japanese name is 石丸 Ishimaru (round stone) 三千代 Michiyo (three thousand generations).

I found [livejournal.com profile] amireal doing this and found it interesting.

There are people whom I do not know reading my journal. *blinks*

Hi peoples I do not know! Want to introduce yourself? Or tell me where you found me? Or something?

And, Barflies? Feel free to contribute! I haven't matched up all the Bar names with the Livejournal names. (Fred, you, the Mahogony Feline and the Ginger Bear are excused, if you wish.)

Arrgh! [livejournal.com profile] brashley46 got me, thusly!

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

As I'm at work, the nearest book is The Barnhart Concise Dictionary of Etymology: The Origins of American English Words, by Robert K. Barnhart.

On page 123, the fifth sentence is ... well, you know how dictionaries are. The word is choke.
-n. 1562, from the verb. -choker, n. 1928 a necklace or ribbon worn close around the throat, developed from earlier meaning of a neckerchief or high collar (1848).

choler n. About 1390 colre, colere, one of the humors, bile (supposed to cause irascibility or temper), also a digestive disorder (before 1382); borrowed from Old French colre bile, anger, learned borrowing of Late Latin cholera bile; see CHOLERA.

Found on [livejournal.com profile] maygra's site:

A lot has been said about how to prevent rape.
  • Women should learn self-defense.
  • Women should lock themselves in their houses after dark.
  • Women shouldn't have long hair and women shouldn't wear short skirts.
  • Women shouldn't leave drinks unattended. Fuck, they shouldn't dare to get drunk at all.

how about:
  • If a woman is drunk, don't rape her.
  • If a woman is walking alone at night, don't rape her.
  • If a women is drugged and unconscious, don't rape her.
  • If a woman is wearing a short skirt, don't rape her.
  • If a woman is jogging in a park at 5 a.m., don't rape her.
  • If a woman looks like your ex-girlfriend you're still hung up on, don't rape her.
  • If a woman is asleep in her bed, don't rape her.
  • If a woman is asleep in your bed, don't rape her.
  • If a woman is doing her laundry, don't rape her.
  • If a woman is in a coma, don't rape her.
  • If a woman changes her mind in the middle of or about a particular activity, don't rape her.
  • If a woman has repeatedly refused a certain activity, don't rape her.
  • If a woman is not yet a woman, but a child, don't rape her.
  • If your girlfriend or wife is not in the mood, don't rape her.
  • If your step-daughter is watching TV, don't rape her.
  • If you break into a house and find a woman there, don't rape her.
  • If your friend thinks it's okay to rape someone, tell him it's not, and that he's not your friend.
  • If your "friend" tells you he raped someone, report him to the police.
  • If your frat-brother or another guy at the party tells you there's an unconscious woman upstairs and it's your turn, don't rape her, call the police and report him as a rapist.
  • Tell your sons, god-sons, nephews, grandsons, and sons of friends that it's not okay to rape someone.
  • Don't just tell your women friends how to be safe and avoid rape.
  • Don't imply that she could have avoided it if she'd only done/not done x,y or z.
  • Don't imply that it's in any way her fault.
  • Don't let silence imply agreement when someone tells you he "got some" with the drunk girl.
  • Don't perpetuate a culture that tells you that you have no control over or responsibility for your actions. You can, too, help yourself.


If you agree, repost it. It's that important.

Repost if you believe that LOVE not GENDER makes a marriage.

Sometimes a sharper wit than mine is needed. I just adore the list.

When you see this on your flist, quote some Shakespeare.

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand'ring bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.

Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me prov'd,
I never writ, nor no man ever lov'd.
