Nicked from [ profile] harmony_bites. And while I'm generally wary of asking for prompts with a promise to actually write something, I am determined to manage this time. ;-)

To the first ten people who comment, I will write a drabble. (Well, I promise at least a drabble; I won't promise not to write a ficlet if I can't manage a drabble.)

You must give me:
* a fandom option: in my case, Harry Potter (for this challenge only, I'm going to say I'm open to trying also other than SS/HG), Doctor Who (no Eight or audio/book companions, please, as I haven't read any EDAs or listened to any audios), and Babylon 5.
* a character (for genfic) or a pairing (if you want a little romance)
* a keyword to use in the drabble or a color or other prompt.

In return, you must post this meme yourself and take on the first 10 requests.

Nabbed from a lot of people, most recently [ profile] ayerf and [ profile] dickgloucester, as this might be quite a bit of fun.

If you could force me to write anything, what would it be? One story only per person.

I'm putting the same disclaimer they did up – this does not mean I'm going to write them. I just want to know. And if I'm inspired, well... then I'm inspired.

Snagged from [ profile] keladry_lupin. And no big surprise - in fact, I'd have been surprised to get anything else!

Cut for the Austen quiz result. )

In other news, I've done over 26,000 words of the new big work thing since Friday, so I'm rather pleased with myself (to be fair, there are a LOT of repetitions there, which pleases me to no end). Plus over 1000 lines of the other work, which I was supposed to leave aside for now, but as it seems to be going extremely badly otherwise, I felt like being nice and doing a bit. Now, what to do next... *ponders*

First, happy birthday to [ profile] phistolemon_!

Second, my holidays are over and it's back to work today. Grrr. Nasty weather, cold and raining. Don't wanna go out at all, never mind to work... ah well. There'll be holidays again.

Third, HP meme, nicked from pretty much everyone. )

Fourth, I'm not panicking hugely on the Exchange front any more. Have something done - not something absolutely amazing, but it's a start. I hope. Unless it sucks completely and shouldn't be shown to anyone, ever. *wibbles*
kribu: (Kribu haigutab)
Weird weather today - rain/sunshine/rain/sunshine/rain and so on. Am somewhat wet, but also a bit baked.

Still wibbly about the prompts, but have a few semi-coherent ideas. Not very good ideas, but it's a start. *nibbles on [ profile] ayerf's arm for moral support*

And nicked this from [ profile] keladry_lupin. Definitely something to be tried again.

Your result for The Commonly Confused Words Test...

English Genius

You scored 100% Beginner, 100% Intermediate, 100% Advanced, and 100% Expert!

You did so extremely well, even I can't find a word to describe your excellence! You have the uncommon intelligence necessary to understand things that most people don't. You have an extensive vocabulary, and you're not afraid to use it properly! Way to go!

Take The Commonly Confused Words Test at HelloQuizzy.

It's a whole lot easier though when you're actually asked to think about certain words, instead of randomly inserting them in a sentence.

I tried this little test thingy, which is apparently looking at one's browser history and then deciding whether you're likely to be male or female.

Not very surprisingly for me...

Likelihood of you being FEMALE is 39%
Likelihood of you being MALE is 61%

Random stuff about my day. )

Also, finally picked up mine and Chilli's plane tickets to Paris. Just over two weeks, yay! Can't wait.

Yesterday was a lovely warm sunny/cloudy summer day, without rain for a change (for this week), and as mum had realised that the Tallinn Town Hall is open for the public in the summer, we decided to go. I've been inside a few times over the years, but she never has.

Town Hall pics. )

Off to see Prince Caspian now - have been meaning to go for weeks, but haven't got around to it until now. Not having any huge expectations, so I'm hoping I'll like it - didn't have any expectations for the first Narnia film and ended up being reasonably entertained.

And last but not least:

If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and who you would not have met "in real life or not) without the Internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

Your result for The Personality Defect Test... )

And with that, I shall carry myself off to bed - just one more workday left of this week, yay! Am totally exhausted once again; have also got soaked on three days this week (we've entered rainy times, it seems). And there were no strawberries left at the market today by the time I got there.

Have done this once before, I seem to recall, but things might have changed a bit since then. And [ profile] ayerf made me do it.

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed. Well, let's see.

Am wondering if I've missed something due to not remembering, but ... if I don't remember at all, then either I haven't read it or it wasn't worth remembering.

Have been having a rather eventless holiday weekend so far. Did some work on Saturday and yesterday, should do a bit today too - raining quite heavily, so not much else to do anyway. I am thinking it's better to do a bit of work every day instead of lazing around doing nothing for a few days and then exhausting myself trying to catch up.

Am starting to give up on hope of ever writing something creative again. Perhaps if a period with less work comes around again, but as things stand now, that's not very likely for at least another year. Work's just completely sapped me of any creative thought I might occasionally have had. A pity, but what can one do?

[ profile] phistolemon_ tagged me for the "what's in your bag" meme, so here it is. Very boring, I'm afraid, but this gave me a good reason to clean out some of the trash in the bag and to test the new 30mm lens, too.

The contents of my bag. )

Tagging... whoever wants to put the contents of their bag on display.

Went out yesterday - visited grandma's grave at the cemetery and took a short walk at Pirita afterwards, from the river to a supermarket and then home. As I had the small Pentax in my bag, there is also some random picspam.

Picspam. )

It's odd how I don't even remember having the W10 for half a year and then it's summer and lots of light outdoors and I fall in love with that little camera all over again. Of course, the recently announced W60 is even more appealing with its even higher levels of waterproofness and ruggedness and more zoom... argh, must stop desiring more cameras. *slaps self*

Did a "how many countries can you name in five minutes" quiz thing... amazing how the brain tends to go into lockdown mode when you see the seconds ticking away! And having to try and remember the English spelling really isn't helping with the speed, either.


Also, a couple of springy pics. Willow catkins. )

More Doctor Who tonight. Yay! And Sendit's posted my Black Orchid DVD - one of my favourite Five stories, as I recall. Yay again!
