An Old Friday Five

From [community profile] thefridayfive.

What's your favorite cliche? As snug as a bug in a rug. :D

Which poem do you known by heart? "Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost

What is the book that changed your life? The Hobbit and the Harry Potter series because they helped define the person I would become and Gilead by Marilynne Robinson because it helped me define who I am now.

What is your all-time favorite film? This question is nearly impossible to answer, so you get an answer in three parts: a) Jurassic Park because I never get tired of it and it's storytelling at its finest, b) Alien because I think it's an example of a perfect film, and c) Silver Linings Playbook because it resonated with me emotionally more than any other film.

Who is your favorite villain? Another impossible question! Probably the Joker because he manages to be an interesting and always intriguing character while maintaining a mysterious facade.

Who would you like to see play you in a film about your life? Anna Torv

What is your favorite hour of the day? I really love evening, close to when it's getting dark but not dark yet. When I still have quite a few hours left in the day but nothing to do.

Morning Routines

From The Coffee House:

How long do you spend getting ready on an average morning? Since I work from home, usually only a few minutes, which is the amount of time it takes me to put my hair up and brush my teeth. It's sad but true. On the days when I feel like getting cleaned up just for the heck of it or when I'm going somewhere, it usually takes me about 30-45 minutes to shower, put makeup on, fix my hair, and get dressed.

What's your preferred weekday outfit? Weekend outfit? I'll assume this is if I'm going out. Weekday: jeans and a t-shirt/tank top with a cardigan. Weekend: If I'm going somewhere nice, I'll wear a skirt or flowy dress, but I'm very much a jeans girl at heart.

If you wear make-up, what do you wear on an average day? Light foundation, eyeliner, and chapstick are the usuals. If I'm getting fancy, I'll add eye shadow, mascara, lipstick, and sometimes blush.

Do you ever go all-out? What does "all-out" mean to you? Not often. "All-out" would be dressing up for a wedding or some kind of special occasion.

Any products you really love? Alterna Bamboo Luminous Shine Mist. I swear by the stuff.

I'd rather be at E3

I've been following the coverage from E3 2009, and the games I'm most excited about are:

- The Last Guardian -- from Team Ico, who did two of my most favorite games ever: Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.

- Silent Hill: Shattered Memories -- kind of a reboot of the first Silent Hill game, but kind of a whole new game at the same time.

- Alan Wake -- My first impression was Silent Hill + Secret Window, but it looks awesome.

- Mass Effect 2 -- Mass Effect is definitely in my top 5 favorite games and the sequel is looking to be even better!

- Uncharted 2: Among Thieves -- Uncharted is also up there in my list of favorite games, so of course I'm anticipating its sequel.

Project Natal also looks insane. If it works as well as the trailer makes it seem to, then it's really going to start feeling like the future is now.

Creepypasta

I've been getting into creepypasta recently, thanks to the [community profile] creepypasta community. "Creepypasta" is a collective term for short, scary stories found on the internet and usually credited to Anonymous. They're similar to urban legends (i.e. The Licked Hand), but they originate on the 'net. This site gives a good explanation along with some examples and a few parodies.

Here are a few of my favorites:

The Bad Dream
White with Red
The Man in the Snow
The Blind Man's Favor
Last Hope (I like this one because of the ending.)

I've found that some creepypasta stories are just plain bad, but it's fun to go searching for good, bone chilling ones when you're bored.
