A New York accent? Seriously? *is floored in hysterics*

What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on

New York City. You are most definitely from New York City. Not New Jersey, not Connecticut. If you are from Jersey then you can probably get into New York City in 10 minutes or less.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

Hee hee!

I'm goofing off for a few minutes here at the library, so I thought I'd mess around with the Map meme that's going around.

visited 6 states (12%)
Create your own visited map of The United States

To clarify: Washington - Seattle and Bothell, visiting my wonderful online friends Cathy and Donna; Ohio - visiting [ profile] alryssa a whole five years ago! *snugs* Miss you, sweetie; California - a weekend convention in LA with [ profile] alryssa before popping back up to Seattle again; West Virgina & Kentucky - in the car with [ profile] alryssa and her DH, when they collected us from the airport, so we could cross the tri-state boundaries *grin*; Illinois - a half-hour stop-off at the airport in Chicago on the way home from Seattle the second time. I can count that, right? ;-)

visited 8 states (3.55%)

This map makes me look far more travelled than I actually am, so again needs clarification :-)

The British Isles - duh! *laughs* Not been to too many places around here, but I've seen a few.
Spain - coach holiday with [ profile] thaya_rayal and her family, and a trip to the island of Majorca with my mother, aunt and cousin
Italy - a coach trip organised by my High School
France, Germany, Switzerland & Belgium - you can't get to Spain by coach without going down through France, and similarly you can't get to Italy without going through all the aforementioned countries. I stepped foot in France and Switzerland during scheduled rest stops at motorway service stations, but the rest of the time we were merely driving through.

Right! Spot of lunch, then back to the books!

Ha ha ha!

Rowan finally succumbed to the family cold at school today - poor love is very pale, and completely not himself. He's barely moved from the sofa all evening, and that's totally not him.

This means it's very unlikely I'll be at work tomorrow, despite the fact it's Dad's day off work. In point of fact, that's going to make things even more unpleasant as Dad's going to be very disgruntled at having company for the second week in a row...*sigh*

He was bad enough on Sunday, when I could do little more than lie prone on the sofa myself.

I don't know how work's going to react, as I'm dealing with a replacement manager (Louise is on maternity leave) and I am supposed to be working all five days. However, they don't pay you when you take a 'Care of Dependant' day anyway.

I'm also a little frustrated as there's a project at work I'm taking part in, and we're supposed to be meeting tomorrow afternoon. I've worked an extra hour and a half this week 'cause it's not entirely work-related and will take up pretty much half my working day, and it didn't look like I was going to be allowed 'time out' to attend. Not that they have much work for me to do these days anyway...

On a positive note, my name got drawn in a competition to win two cinema tickets! You had to not take a single sick day during October to qualify, and the winners were announced during the 'Employee Of The Month' awards meeting this afternoon - I wasn't expecting to win anything, as they always schedule these for times when I'm not in the office anyway, so I had my back to the meeting helping clean up some spilled Sea Monkeys! You can imagine my surprise when my name was called out! Also came this close to winning £80 in the bingo game too! *makes "Rats!" fingersnap*

My username is ______ because ______.

My username is 'Gothams3rdRobin', because I originally created this journal to interact with my roleplaying friends. I haven't done any roleplaying in way too long, but when I do, I play Tim Drake, the third young man to bear the mantle of Robin The Boy Wonder. The Gotham part, for those who do not know, is because Batman's base of operations is Gotham City, New Jersey.

My name is _____ because ______.

Gothams 3rd Robin - because I am unoriginal. *grins*

My journal is titled ____ because ______.

The title is a line from a Brian May song called 'Let Your Heart Rule Your Head';
"If you've got time, stay and listen to my story.
Just a moment of your life is all I need.
Don't say we should be parted,
'Cause we only just got started.
Let your heart rule your head tonight."

For those of you familiar with Queen's back catalogue, the song's a kind of country and western version of 'Tie Your Mother Down'. Which gives me slight pause about Brian's psyche, but I love the song anyway.

My friends page is called ____ because ______.

I have a number of filters in place - mostly to help me cope with the number and variety of communities I watch. My actual friends page is called 'Ffrindiau' - the welsh word for friends (well d'uh!)

My default userpic is ____ because ______.

This is supposed to be a representation of me. How accurate it is, it's hard to say.

We have company today - Isaac's come over to play. We're currently waiting to hear if Mam needs us to go over to her place again, so they're messing around on the desktop PC. I also have yesterday's Astros/Padres game on the tv.

Final Torchwood episode of the season tonight! *bounces and sobs simultaneously* And Doctor Who's back tomorrow! *excited and reticent simultaneously* They better make Donna a less annoying character this time...

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick four of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee!!

[ profile] phoebesmum asked me to talk about these ones:

Joe Talbot sceptre (or 'giant phallic symbol', as Hilary describes it *chuckles*)

This is from the movie 'Crossworlds' which, if you haven't seen it, I recommend it. It's a cheesy mid-ninties sci-fi flick, most notably staring Rutger Hauer, that probably didn't last long in the cinema, but I find it thoroughly entertaining. Plus it has the gorgeous Josh Charles as the film's lead character, JoeJoseph Talbot *grins*

Agent D!

I'm kinda pleased with this self-made icon, as my normal attempts at text and stuff look awful, but this was such a simple thing it could hardly go wrong! It's taken from 'Muppets From Space', wherein Josh Charles plays an evil secret agent who promptly gets his arse handed to him by Miss Piggy! *grins* Classic! I also couldn't resist it, due to the interest in Sports Night fic staring secret agent!Dan Rydell at the time.

Dan & Casey - working

One of my many, many Sports Night icons. The idea with this one is that I would use it whenever I made a post from work, along with it's sister-icon 'Hard at work pantsless' for times when I was bored...

Garfield cooking

This is an icon I use when I want to talk about food-related things (I am nothing if not predictable! *chuckle*). I am a (quiet) member of [ profile] geek_cooks, and I would like to have more time/energy/enthusiasm to cook more than the pasta and noodle dishes that I can persuade Rowan to eat. Membership of the community encouraged me to experiment with herbs and spices a little more, and hopefully will continue to help me learn to cook!

There you go!

I Am A: True Neutral Elf Bard/Sorcerer (2nd/2nd Level)

Ability Scores:







True Neutral A true neutral character does what seems to be a good idea. He doesn't feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to good vs. evil or law vs. chaos. Most true neutral characters exhibit a lack of conviction or bias rather than a commitment to neutrality. Such a character thinks of good as better than evil after all, he would rather have good neighbors and rulers than evil ones. Still, he's not personally committed to upholding good in any abstract or universal way. Some true neutral characters, on the other hand, commit themselves philosophically to neutrality. They see good, evil, law, and chaos as prejudices and dangerous extremes. They advocate the middle way of neutrality as the best, most balanced road in the long run. True neutral is the best alignment you can be because it means you act naturally, without prejudice or compulsion. However, true neutral can be a dangerous alignment because it represents apathy, indifference, and a lack of conviction.

Elves are known for their poetry, song, and magical arts, but when danger threatens they show great skill with weapons and strategy. Elves can live to be over 700 years old and, by human standards, are slow to make friends and enemies, and even slower to forget them. Elves are slim and stand 4.5 to 5.5 feet tall. They have no facial or body hair, prefer comfortable clothes, and possess unearthly grace. Many others races find them hauntingly beautiful.

Primary Class:
Bards often serve as negotiators, messengers, scouts, and spies. They love to accompany heroes (and villains) to witness heroic (or villainous) deeds firsthand, since a bard who can tell a story from personal experience earns renown among his fellows. A bard casts arcane spells without any advance preparation, much like a sorcerer. Bards also share some specialized skills with rogues, and their knowledge of item lore is nearly unmatched. A high Charisma score allows a bard to cast high-level spells.

Secondary Class:
Sorcerers are arcane spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no theories just raw power that they direct at will. Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards do and acquire them more slowly, but they can cast individual spells more often and have no need to prepare their incantations ahead of time. Also unlike wizards, sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain their powers without undergoing the years of rigorous study that wizards go through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and are proficient with simple weapons. Charisma is very important for sorcerers; the higher their value in this ability, the higher the spell level they can cast.

...funnily enough, that's more or less the kind of character I used to choose when I played AD&D. Though I think I leaned more towards the rogue/sorcerer.

Conventional, huh? Wonder if Batman would be pleased with that?

Interesting how the pie-chart's so evenly split though.
