Gakked at random from http://community.livejournal.com/surveys/12957189.html, and notably for the books it leaves out - Blade Runner, Maltese Falcon, any noir at all frankly, any of John Huston, any Hitchcock, Naked Lunch, The Prestige, any Wyndham, any Clarke, any Christie, any Doyle, pretty well any crime aside from one Hiasson and one Grisham, etc

This has been doing the rounds on another social utility - so I thought I'd have a go. Name the fifteen books that will always stay with you - first thoughts, what you think of in fifteen minutes, that sort of thing.

I'm not entirely surprised that only two books by women appeared (The Teddy Robinson books should be there), and I was looking for the theory book that made me quiver, but it's pseuds corner. Many of these I read for the first time between 16 and 21 (or younger):

Cheap suspense )

The interesting question would be why these fifteen...

Drown in a pool of Diet Lemonade

For many years you have been trying to warn people about global warming, but no one ever listened to you. One day you will realize how to solve the problem. One day a friend will suggest a diet lemonade drink to cure a fever that you will get. You realize, "Hey if that drink can bring my temperature down, maybe it will work for the Earth!", so you start emptying your life savings to lemons, which you hand squeeze into your pool. Unfortunately, one day when you're pouring in your sugar substitute, a random Velociraptor runs out from the bushes and knocks you in the pool. You try to swim out but your hand is caught in the straps of the bag of sugar substitute. Down you go.

A number of people seem to be posting a New Year's Resolution for 2008 meme - which strikes me as being a little bit late in the day. On the other hand, resolutions made in advance are all about the fail so:

In 2008 I shall:

  • finally read the Inspector Rebus novels
  • buy a megarider gold rover ticket and explore Kent
  • finish editing two books and do another edition of a third (but not prof raed it)
  • give a conference paper that's not on sf
  • go to the Edinburgh Festival
  • see more comedy
  • bring world peace and an end to poverty
  • tidy up.


    One of them will not come off.

    What Your Taste in Chocolate Says About You



    You are sophisticated, modern, and high class.

    Your taste is refined, but you are not picky.

    You are often the first to try something new.



    You are passionate and full of life.

    You fall in love easily, and you tend to have whirlwind relationships.

    Your passion sometimes does get the better of you. You have a crazy temper!



    You love being around people. Friendships are important to you.

    You feel lost when you're by yourself... so you tend to avoid being alone.

    Sounds more like my therapy sessions. I always think of myself as Pooh but fear I'm Rabbit...

    (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] maryread)



    Your Score: Piglet


    You scored 12 Ego, 17 Anxiety, and 9 Agency!



    "It's a little Anxious," he said to himself, "to be a Very Small Animal Entirely Surrounded by Water. Christopher Robin and Pooh could escape by Climbing Trees, and Kanga could escape by Jumping, and Rabbit could escape by Burrowing, and Owl could escape by Flying, and Eeyore could escape by -- by Making a Loud Noise Until Rescued, and here am I, surrounded by water and I can't do anything."

    You scored as Piglet!

    ABOUT PIGLET: Piglet is a Very Small Animal, who used to live in his own house, a nice big tree. However, after Owl's house was blown over by a storm, he "found" Piglet's house, and Piglet didn't want to tell him that the home was already lived in. So he went to live with Pooh.

    WHAT THIS SAYS ABOUT YOU: You are a rather nervous person, and you tend to worry about The Worst happening. You don't really feel capable of dealing with the things that life could throw at you, and so you tend to fret about it. You are one of those people who seems to think that worrying actually accomplishes something... and your friends can't help but love you for it. Your humble manner and self-deprecating ways make your friends feel good about themselves. They want to help and protect you.

    Your loving friends are always trying to encourage you to be more independent, and they are right. You need to develop a bit of self confidence and stand on your own two feet.

    Perhaps this explains why most of the people I hang out with are in their twenties.

    You Act Like You Are 23 Years Old

    You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel like an adult, and you're optimistic about life.
    You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

    You're still figuring out your place in the world and how you want your life to shape up.
    The world is full of possibilities, and you can't wait to explore many of them.
