The Only Way To Live in This World...

...is Without Rules!


July 11th, 2011

Hogwarts Sorting Meme @ 10:37 pm



What sort of profession in the wizarding world would you choose and why?
An Auror, or a place in the Department of Mysteries.
I just love excitement and mysteries and stuff like that! :D 

You have to venture deep into the Forbidden Forest one night. Pick one Harry Potter character other than Hagrid and one object (muggle or magical), besides your wand, that you'd want with you.
I would definitely bring Remus Lupin! Not only would I feel super safe with him, but he's my favorite character so I'd love to spend time with him XD And I'd bring a broom for a fast getaway!
 
If you had the opportunity to live forever, but your family and friends did not, what would you choose? And if you did choose to live forever, what would you do with eternity? 
As much as the idea of immortality interests me, I would not want my family and friends grow old and die while I stay the same. 

If you could travel back in time to one point, when and where would you go? Why? 
To pirate times!  
  
What HP character do you identify with most and why? 
There's definitely more than one that I identify with...but probably Lupin the most. I'm shy and often an outcast, but fiercely loyal to my friends and a good friend in return.

What would you see if you looked into the Mirror of Erised? 
Oh, goodness...me being famous XD lol
 
Do you believe that moral actions should be judged by the intentions behind them, or by the consequences they create? 
I can't say both? Because that's what I think. And really, it does depend. Because sometimes a good-intentioned-thing has bad consequences, and sometimes bad-intention-things like murder fail--but they still deserve to be punished!
 
What was your ideal job as a kid? Has that changed? What is your ideal job now?
It always changed, but the most recent ones I've thought about were: A Forensic Investigator, and Actress, and a Writer. The Forensic Investigator has been thrown out of the window because it's too time consuming and I wouldn't have time for a life. The other two I am pursuing in college right now. 
 
If you were able to invent one spell, potion, or charm, what would it do, what would you use it for or how would you use it, and what would you call it? 
I would invent a potion to completely reverse those infected by a savage werewolf like Fenrir. They deserve the life that was so brutally ripped from them by that bastard. As for what I would call it...IDK. haha Any suggestions? 
 
If you were to face a boggart, what would it turn into? And what does it turn into when you throw the counter-spell, Riddikulus?
It'd turn into either a giant spider or a dementor. The counter spell would turn the spider into one of those money-stealer dusty things that blow away, and the dementor into an empty pile of robes
 
What do you look for in a friend? 
Oh wow, well-- a sense of humor, trust, loyalty, support, the same interests as me, etc etc...
 
What trait most annoys you about other people?
Ignorance/intolerance. UGH
 
What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?
1. I am very compassionate to everyone.

2. I've always been rather low maintenance. (It doesn't take much to please me and I never make a big to-do about anything.
Wardrobe? Jeans, t-shirt, and converse. Friday nights? Board games or going to a movie is all I'm looking to do.
Want to get me a birthday present? I'd take a new book or CD over expensive jewelry any day.)

3. I like to think I'm pretty talented!

4. When it comes to the things I care about the most, I am fiercely passionate.

5. I'm a huge nerd. Star Trek, Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, Hiddles, you name it! But I loooove being a nerd. Also, a bookworm to boot!
 
What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?
1. I am an awful procrastinator. Like, seriously awful.

2. And I am rather lazy

3. I'm pretty darn  passive, tho sometimes I explode at the build-up of emotions... 

4. Speaking of which, I'm really not very emotional and I'm afriad I come off insensitive a lot of the time.... 

5. I am very self-conscious, altho I'm getting better at it!!
 
Define in your own words the following key traits: 

Courage: The ability to put aside your own fears to help others in more need than you.
 
Loyalty: Unfaltering dedication to what you love.
 
Intelligence: The ability and capacity to understand... 

Ambition: The driving force to set pretty high goals and also, achieve them!

CHARACTER:
 

SHIP:
“…And it smells too!”
“Well, Mr. Scott, she’ll have to do until we return to Starfleet.”
Scotty stormed away down the dark hall. “Damn Klingons…don’t they know how to bathe…and the technology!--”
Kirk turned to find his Vulcan First Officer standing stoically behind him. “Ah, Mr. Spock. How long have you been there?”
“For the entire duration of your conversation with Mr. Scott.”
“Oh. Well, Bridge report?”
“Mr. Chekov and Mr. Sulu are learning quite quickly, Captain. And Lieutenant Uhura has already sent a message to Starfleet Headquarters explaining our situation.”
“Thank you, Mr. Spock.”
He started to walk away but turned back.
“Stay with Mr. Scott, will you? We wouldn’t want him…damaging anything.”
Spock nodded. “That would be the logical course of action.”
On cue, a smash came from behind the Engineering room door, followed by loud cursing and more smashes.
“Might wanna make that quick, Mr. Spock.”

COSTUME:
 Kirk sat on Bones’ bed, tapping his foot on the floor. It had been ten minutes since Kirk sent Bones into the bathroom.
“If you don’t hurry, we’re going to miss the entire party! God damn it, it’s just a costume. No one is going to judge you.”
“But I look like an idiot, Jim!”
“It’s Halloween, Bones.”
“Halloween my ass! This goddamn costume would barely fit you!”
Kirk sighed and laid back on the bed, picking out patterns on the ceiling. There were shuffling and banging noises from the bathroom, accompanied by the occasional harrumph.
Kirk‘s patience was running thin. “Bones! C’mon!”
The thumping stopped, and Bones was silent for a few seconds. Kirk lifted his head from the bed, eyes on the door.
It clicked and opened, revealing Bones …
…as a Chippendale dancer.

Movie Meme! @ 10:03 pm

Stolen from <ljuser="DesLily"> again!

1. The last movie you saw in a theatre, and current-release movie you still want to see.

Last movie I saw in theatres was The Tourist, with Johnny Depp :D And I want to see Black Swan so bad!!!!!

2. The last movie you rented/purchased for home viewing.

I don't rent movies personally, I'm more of a buyer. And when I see a movie I like, I buy it right away without thinking. So I was in ShopRite the other day, and saw the ten-dollar movie rack and was like "Walk by, Katie, walk by it!" but I couldn't! I saw the closing day of RENT dvd and a Three Stooges compilation I didn't have, so I bought those :D

3. A movie that made you laugh out loud.

 

Blazing Saddles! I watched it a few days ago

4. A movie that made you cry.


Oh jeez...Search For Spock made me a little teary because of all the McCoy/Spock love that happened towards the end (I seriously die when McCoy says [not word-for-word, just from my memory] "I never thought I'd be saying this....but it seems I've missed you. And I don't think I can stand to lose you again."


5. A movie that was a darling of the critics, but you didn't think lived up to the hype.

Um...idk. I normally like all the movies I see. Ooh wait! I didn't like The Other Guy, with Will Ferrel and Mark Wahlberg. 

6. A movie that you thought was better than the critics.

There are many in this category!! First off, The Brothers Grimm. Secondly, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. Thirdly, Peter Pan (with Jason Isaacs as Hook). Plus a lot more.


7. Favorite animated movie.

I like all Disney films! But Wall*E and Findng Nemo were adorable! And OMG TOY STORY!!!!!!!!!
 

8. Favorite Disney Villain.

Captain Hook!


 




 





9. Favorite movie musical.

Phantom of the Opera...Hello, Dolly!...and Sweeney Todd :D
 

10. Favorite movies of all-time (up to five).

Oi vey, this is gunna be hard.

1. It's a tie bewteen Star Trek: The Search for Spock, ST: The Voyage Home, and the New Star Trek!!!!
2. Pirates of the Caribbean!!!
3. The Dark Knight and the Brothers Grimm are tied for my fave Heath film!!!
4. All the Harry Potter movies (Prisoner of Azkaban the most!!!!)
