1. Post about something that made you happy today even if it's just a small thing.
2. Do this every day for a week without fail.
3. Tag 8 of your friends to do the same.

#1 [ profile] anher made sure to grab and hug me before I sat down to read livejournal just now. ^.^

Um... [ profile] prester_scott, [ profile] gen, [ profile] copperwolf, [ profile] silussa, [ profile] xaq... I would tag [ profile] drewtiggy, but he's driving pretty much this entire week and will probably not be able to post every day.

So, that's five people... for the rest of you, do it if you want to! I wouldn't mind seeing more happiness on my friends list.

While we await election returns...
1. Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.
2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.
3. Include these instructions, and share the love.

This red panda was among those that inspired Garanemu.

I will remind folks - nothing of any importance will be settled until tomorrow morning, at the earliest. Many polls will be open a little later, and will be counting absentee ballots well into tomorrow. Take time away from the returns and relax. I'm about to go watch Dirty Jobs and maybe read a book.

Since other are doing this, I thought I'd contribute as well. Below are the first lines of 10 books. I had to hunt around a bit to find ones with distinctive lines but not ones that gave it away entirely. It was hard to find books that were common enough to be pretty broadly recognized, but hadn't been quoted already by other folks on my friends list.

See if you can guess the title and author.

1. "The Mole had been working very hard all morning, spring cleaning his little home."

2. "Once upon a time there was a Martian named Valentine Michael Smith."

3. "In that pleasant district of merry England which is watered by the river Don, there extended in ancient times a large forest, covering the greater part of the beautiful hills and valleys which lie between Sheffield and the pleasant town of Doncaster."

4. "The Nellie, a cruising yawl, swung to her anchor without a flutter of the sails and was at rest."

5. "The unicorn lived in a lilac wood, and she lived all alone."

6. "The last drops of the thundershower had hardly ceased falling when the Pedestrian stuffed his map into his pocket, settled his pack more comfortably on his tired shoulders, and stepped out from the shelter of a large chestnut-tree into the middle of the road."

7. "Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun."

8. "It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen."

9. "In the year 1872, the house at number 7 Savile Row, Burlington Gardens - the house in which Sheridan died in 1814 - was lived in by Phileas Fogg, Esq., one of the oddest and most striking members of the Reform Club, even though he seemed determined to avoid doing anything that might draw attention to himself."

10. "This is my favorite book in all the world, though I have never read it."

In 2008, stryck resolves to...
Give some girl scouts to charity.
Cut down on my swimming.
Find a better umc.
Backup my piano regularly.
Find a new beowulf.
Pay for my cub scouts on time.

Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

Yeah, I bought those cub scouts on the three year finance plan, but it's worth it. Now, if only I can find a good home for these old girl scouts I'm not using anymore...

I've been trying to find a better umc for a couple of years, now. Maybe this year I'll finally manage it.

What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)


("Midland" is not necessarily the same thing as "Midwest") The default, lowest-common-denominator American accent that newscasters try to imitate. Since it's a neutral accent, just because you have a Midland accent doesn't mean you're from the Midland.
