sivaroobini: (that damn enormous fiery eye again)

I was playing around with this Mary-Sue generator and the results were hilarious. Basically, you input things like the names of your Mary-Sue, her love interest, another male, colours, numbers, various place names and races, weapons, female body parts, types of clothing etc, and then it generates this astounding piece of literature. XD


Sparklypoo sighed heavily as she threw her velvet cloak to the floor. Feisty anger flashed in her fuchsia eyes... )

 Last year I took part in the first GISHWHES (Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen) organised by Misha Collins (Castiel from Supernatural), had a lot of fun, and helped break a Guinness World Record. I'm taking part again this year; does anyone want to be in my team? :D

Goddamn, it's FREEZING inside my house and pleasantly warm outside, and it's two in the afternoon. I love my place, but it has no heating and I can't stay in my blanket-nest on my bed all day.  Sometimes I bring my laptop and a cup of tea outside and sit at the porch, facing the lovely garden, but the battery dies fast. (I am dreading the start of morning classes next week. Or classes/SCA training that last late into the evening. On the plus side, I have to wear at least four layers during rapier practice. :D)

When I went back to Singapore I told my dad I was going to buy a portable space heater for my room and he said, "No, no, I have a Philips infrared lamp that I never use, you can bring it back."

Me: *looks at box* Pa, this is for muscle aches, not heating up a room.

Dad: No, it'll warm up the room, just switch it on and leave it for a while and then switch it off once the place is warm.

And I was pretty much forced to pack it, so I did, and now I'm back in the Perth winter and 2°C nights and I tried switching on the infrared lamp and the part of my body/the bed next to it gets warm, but that's it. I'm back to wrapping myself up in like five blankets.

(My welcome-back-to-Perth gift from an aunt here was a 'Couch Cosy' which is basically some local version of a Snuggie. I regret ever poking fun at Snuggies. THEY ARE AMAZING AND MAGICAL.)

^ That's me at night. Except with more blankets.

[20:32] Me: Out of curiosity. Sex... ... der Sex. Male.
[20:32] [personal profile] glacialphoenix /Myst: Huh?
[20:32] Me: Nouns have genders in German
[20:33] Me: Der shows it's male
[20:33] Myst: Ah.
[20:33] Me: Sex in German is male
[20:33] Myst: ...well, that was to be expected? XD
[20:33] Me: XD
[20:33] Myst: I keep thinking of Nanny Ogg
[20:33] Myst: "Names have sex in foreign parts."
[20:33] Me: LMAO
[20:33] Me: Thank you, now I will never complain about the genders again.

^ Gytha 'Nanny' Ogg.

I kind of want to quote the conversation about Easter that Wednesday and Eostre have in American Gods, but sadly I did not bring my copy with me. Also, I had an absolutely delicious hollow Cadbury's Easter Egg today. :9

  For the Myths of the Greeks and Romans unit I'm taking for Classics and Ancient History, we've got to do this digital project thingy, so two friends and I are filming the Greek myth of Hades and Persephone. I'm playing Hades, and also filling in for small roles like Hermes since my face can't really be seen as Hades; since we can't pull off the blue-flame-hairdo like in Disney's Hercules, I just wear black clothes and my black cloak and pull the hood down so it mostly covers my face. Anyway, last Thursday we were about to start filming a few more scenes and were discussing how they should go when 'Persephone' commented that I looked like Darth Vader. We promptly filmed this for the blooper reel. :D

[16:49]  [info]nevermore_1106 : Oh, that reminds me of this old BBC series, "I, Claudius". Where Caligula (brilliantly played by a youngish John Hurt) gives the leaders of the guard these ridiculous watchwords just for fun.
[16:50] Me: Well, it was Caligula. xD
[16:50] June: Yep.
[16:50] Me: The guy made Incitatus a consul. Hey, bet you one watchword was a neighing sound.
[16:50] June: But like. He goes, "I do it to annoy him. Now every time he addresses the Captain of the guard he has to say 'Give us a kiss'. Yesterday, I gave him 'Touch me Titus'!"
[16:51] June: And then collapses into giggles.
[16:51] Me: OMG LOL
[16:51] Me: "Halt! Who goes there?!"
"[neighing sound]"
"Oh. Come on in."
[16:51] June: I KNOW
[16:51] June: I died.
[16:51] June: ROFL
[16:51] June: okay now I'm DEFINITELY  dead

Photoshopped by yours truly, original image taken from Crystalinks.

[ profile] seablue_eyes/Lucy is writing a fantastic Good Omens fanfic called A Diamond Sky Above Titanic, and in Chapter 12 there's this gem of a quote: “As in... As in the Metatron? The Voice of God, the Chancellor of Heaven, the Great Celestial Cheerleader, etcetera?”

“Er. If you say so,” said Aziraphale, hastily banishing the image of gaily twirling pompoms in the highest Heavens from his mind.


Lucy: Haha, I couldn't resist the Celestial Cheerleader bit after reading about seraphims spending all day singing 'Holy, holi, is the Lord' or somesuch all day. It would be just like Crowley to skit their worshipping :D (and yes, I looked it up: cheerleaders did exist in 1912!!)

Me: I think it's 'Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty', and YES, that is so Crowley! XDD Though now I am picturing angels in little frilly white cheerleader uniforms and silvery pom-poms doing their routine to harp music and this is such a ridiculous mental image. XD (Now I'm wondering when cheerleaders started.)

Lucy: Teehee, perhaps cheerleading started at the DAWN OF TIME!! :D Who knows what those seraphim get up to. Perhaps that's their thing.

Me: Oh god, I wish I could draw.

Lucy, you are a genius. ♥

Quick summary: On January 31st I will be flying to Perth since my university term commences in February. I will be studying Classics and Ancient History at the University of Western Australia. My beloved hamster has cancer. ;_; I've got a persistent sore throat and PCOS. My sister is engaged, and I am so happy for her. ♥

In 2012, sirius_luva resolves to...
Go to magic every Sunday.
Spend less time on gabriel.
Drink four glasses of apocalypse every day.
Find a new yoga.
Cut down to ten norse sagas a day.
Lose ten vikings by March.
Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

I wanted to spend MORE time writing Gabriel! XD He was sadly neglected in 2011. And I'm not sure Apocalypses are vegetarian. XD Magic on Sundays works, I guess, maybe I should cleanse my crystals then. I like the yoga I do now, thank you very much. XP Man, I'd love to be able to read ten sagas a day in the first place. And I don't have ten Vikings to lose, sadly, though my doctor says I need to lose about seven kg. D:

Happy Christmas/Yule/Saturnalia/Midwinter/Hogswatch/non-denominational commercialised obligatory-gift-giving holiday of your choice! :D Note the holly attached to that scythe.

^ A card I made for a friend. XD That cute bundled-up guy in the corner is the PB for my roleplay character, the Archangel Gabriel.

^ Gifts and cards I made/bought for my friends. ♥ Hope the mail is kind to them and that they all arrive safely, if not on time. >_> (I mailed them at the beginning of this week, but international mail...) For some reason I really enjoy wrapping gifts, too.

Also, in 2008 I wrote a crack fic that mixed two carols together called Angels We Have Heard Get High. The lovely [ profile] sttq has actually recorded it for me! 8D Link here, if this embedding doesn't work.

You'll have to turn your volume up to hear as it's really quite soft, but it features a bunch of angels, completely random pairings, and Crowley and Aziraphale! 8D

Have a great Christmas, everyone. ♥

Gandalf would totally get him into hobbit pipeweed

SavioBriion says: (PM 11:59:44)

SavioBriion says: (AM 12:00:24)
Rosmerta's oak-matured mead

SavioBriion says: (AM 12:00:32)

sherbet lemons!

Hey, maybe this explains my fascination with the full moon. XD

You were born during a Full moon

- what it says about you -

You've spent your life in the middle of things, whether it's between people who oppose each other, ideas that oppose each other, or places that are very different. You're very aware of perspectives outside the norm and good at anticipating how different people will see a situation. You value second opinions, because they give you a feeling of balance. You don't have a single group of friends and the people you spend time with may not have a lot in common with each other.

What phase was the moon at on your birthday? Find out at

And that is kind of true. :D

sivaroobini: (corridor monster)

It is Hallowe'en! Aka Samhain, All Hallows Eve, Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead and so on. It's even one of the Ancient Egyptian feast days of Bast, Sekhmet and Ra.

Sigh, I wish Halloween was a bigger event here. I'd LOVE to don a costume and scary makeup and have fun with friends, but when I asked Mum if I could just have a Halloween party at home, with costumes and friends and scary movies, she was like, "And invite trouble?" She seems to think it'll attract evil spirits or something. Augh. ><

So as usual, I simply lit a candle (scented, this year!) and put it in the skeletal-hand candleholder I think of as my Hand of Glory.

Also, on Saturday I was going to a friend's house and stopped to run an errand first (had to buy my tickets for a horror writing workshop), and met a zombie at the mall! :D He kindly agreed to pose for a picture instead of eating my brains.

... yes, I look far too happy to be standing next to a zombie.

I will end with icon-quotes from one of my favourite chapters of The Shoebox Project, involving a very... interactive Halloween.


sivaroobini: (Angel)

It's Michaelmas! The feast of St. Michael the Archangel, and also of the Archangels Gabriel and Raphael. :D (Poor Uriel, always being left out just because he's not canonical.) So it's also called the Feast of the Archangels. I usually focus on Michael for this though.

Sancte Michael Archangele,
defende nos in proelio;
contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium.
Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur:
tuque, Princeps militiae Caelestis,
satanam aliosque spiritus malignos,
qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo,
divina virtute in infernum detrude.

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle;
be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray:
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Field Commander of the Army of God, One of the Chief Princes, Advocate of Israel, One Who is Like God, Angel of the Presence, Chief of the Virtues and Archangels, Angel of Truth, Defender of Christians, Patron Saint of Chivalry, Patron Saint of Warriors, Captain of the Host of the Lord, Prince of Light, Viceroy of Heaven, Prince of Israel, First of the Seven Who Stand Before the Lord, Archistratege of God, Prince of
Primordial Fire, the Expeller, Supreme Commander of the Heavenly Host, Prince of the Seraphim, the Right Hand of the Lord, Conqueror of Satan, Saint Michael Mikha'el the Archangel. ♥

Was clearing some old Facebook notifs in my inbox when I came across this post of [ profile] fantasybookworm's.

[ profile] fantasybookworm/Kelsey: I don't see much of a difference between books and sex. Both are...
       -Best enjoyed in bed
       -Improved with chocolate
       -Rude to be involved with over dinner
       -Both involve Mr. Darcy if you're lucky

Me: Well, if the dinner is a private one at home, it's perfectly permissible to have books or sex as dessert...
       And mmm, Mr Darcy :9 ♥

Your result for The Sorting Hat: A Comprehensive Harry Potter Personality Assessment [Test/Quiz]...


38% Ravenclaw, 44% Hufflepuff, 45% Slytherin and 68% Gryffindor!

You might belong in Gryffindor,

Where dwell the brave at heart,

Their daring, nerve, and chivalry

Set Gryffindors apart;

Gryffindor's cardinal traits are bravery, pride, stubbornness and impulsiveness. Most people in the house of Gryffindor will be extraverted. (Remember, introversion is different than being shy: you can be a shy extrovert.) Gryffindors gain energy and life by being around people, grain strength from friends and enjoy working with those close to them. However, they are also emotionally volatile and can experience a wide range of feelings in a short amount of time, from unbridled happiness to deep depression to unrestrained rage. They are less emotionally stable than some of the other houses (such as Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff); Gryffindors are also impulsive. They're also generally good-hearted and trusting, and for the most part like people at first sight unless they are given a reason not to. Gryffindors are Prideful, bad at taking criticism and easily get into conflicts with others—this is the main trait that would bring their overall level of agreeableness from high to average.

A Gryffindor's prideful nature coupled with their sense of justice and stubborn behavior causes them to be extremely set in their ways. They have a difficult time backing down from a fight or admitting that they are wrong. It's also very hard for them to get over a bad first impression or change their opinion on someone.

Take The Sorting Hat: A Comprehensive Harry Potter Personality Assessment [Test/Quiz] at HelloQuizzy

On one hand, GO GO GRYFFINDOR! I'm happy with that result (and Pottermore damn well better put me in Gryffindor) because I love the ideals Gryffindor stands for and I always did feel it fit me (although I'm not very extraverted; the Myers-Briggs test has me as an INFP if I recall correctly). However, if I couldn't get Gryffindor, I always felt Ravenclaw would be the next choice. Not Slytherin. D: I don't think I'm cunning.

Ah well. Except for the 'extrovert' part (and the criticism pat; I generally accept concrit), this does fit me. :D

So I was summarising Beowulf for a friend:

SavioBriion says: (PM 11:22:34)
They introduced themselves - Beowulf son of Ecgtheow (I can never spell his name!) and his retainers.

SavioBriion says: (PM 11:23:15)
Aka the band of loyal knights that most young lords gathered to themselves and who proved themselves through acts of valor. He had no problem with his teeth as far as we know.

Eunice says: (PM 11:23:31)

Eunice says: (PM 11:23:35)
thanks for explaining that

Eunice says: (PM 11:23:43)
i was abt to commennt that beowulf had braces???

I hope my explanation was correct, it's been ages since I've read Beowulf. However, the mental image of Beowulf wearing braces just tickles me. XD
