Meme: Comment to this post and I will give you five subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.keksmitmilch
gave me these five: Praelitis, bunnies, family, writing, TV shows.
Without further ado!PraelitesMy favorite game
! It has eaten my soul and made me a part of its nutrition base rather than shit me out unhappy and frustrated like most games do. It's helped me grow as a writer and allowed me to bring characters to life that I would have ignored otherwise.
My characters there, in order of appearance:Rose DaileyNate AldenAaron LancasterFrank AldenIan Choosearandomlastname
Most of them have links to their logs at the bottom if you're curious to read any. I luff them all!Bunnies
You've heard of the crazy cat ladies? I'm the crazy bunny lady. Okay I don't have a HORDE, but I have three and I luff them. They don't give me allergies either so double love for them. I first got Penelope Pip
, when I was still unsure if I should get a bunny. I'd spent about a month reading all I could find about them to be sure if I could handle the responsibility and I was still pondering. Then I saw this white little girl sitting all alone in the pet store. People apparently didn't want her because she looked dirty. She has some grey and pale yellow-brown in her fur and a lot on her feet, people? Are wankers. She's such a lady, very proper, but also brave, curious, strong and funny.
I needed a buddy for her and this was back before there was adoption available for bunnies in Iceland, or at least none I could find. so I headed back and I bought Benjamin Boo
. He was kind of the opposite of Pip. Scared (still is, scaredy bunny, scared of everything), distrustful, grumpy. But they bonded right away and have been inseperable since! He was always sick for the longest time, always something wrong with him. After he got neutered his left hindleg went numb and he couldn't feel it. There'd been a vet mistake (they shouldn't use Ketamine on bunnies but they still do! Their legs are too small for the needle so there's a risk of paralyzis, vets SHOULD use gas like they do on kittens). After dealing with constantly trying to bandage it because Boo kept gnawing on it, it had to be amputated. Today he's far healthier, if a little too fat but he gets a lot of exercise and I don't feed him too many treats... He's just gimpy and fat like his mommy ^_^
My third bunny wasn't planned at all. Broddi Bítukall
. My friend got him for her other bunny but they hated each other. I bunnysat for her one time and when she took him home he was miserable. She asked if I wanted him and sure, why the hell not. He's aggressive, dominant, grumpy and difficult and he doesn't get along with the other bunnies so we have to keep him seperate from them. Still, he's hilarious and snuggly too so it isn't all bad. I've tried to bond the three of them which is tricky since it could destroy the bond Boo and Pip have but it seems to be too strong for that! Yay. He's too dominant and aggressive and he actually made Pip ...whimper. o.O So yeah... let's just keep them apart.Family
Right! My family is huge. But tiny. Yup, that makes no sense does it. Well, my dad moved away when I was three and had a horde of bebes! Okay, four, but still. So I have this giant family on the other side of the planet, literally. Back here at home there's me, mom and my brother, Gunnar. To be fair, grandma's now kind of in that mix too after my granddad died. I have oodles and oodles of cousins and aunts and uncles who are freakin awesome but I'm not freakin awesome so I don't talk to them as often as I'd like. As for family plans - unless something (me) changes drastically in the next 2-3 years, I won't be having kids. I don't see myself in a relationship even, I'll just be that odd spinster with bunnies. This doesn't make me sad either! Sometimes I think it'd be nice to have a partner but I don't feel like I'm the type. I prefer writing emotions over actually having them. Of course I won't rule out that one day I might meet someone and break all my rules- that's what life does to you, it throws you a curveball and whatnot, but right now? Yup, that's the future plan. Bunnies. Writing. Spinster. I'll just be Signorina Bet!Writing
I used to write poetry and whatnot when I was younger and while angsty and teenagery, some of it was apparently really good. Writing is something I want to do for a living, whether it's editing other people's work or writing little articles or actually going ahead and finding an artist to put together graphic novels. That would be ace! I was planning on going into social work but nope. Why deny it. I may not have a talented bone in my body but I have an artistic soul so I'll just have to fake it! ;)TV shows
For someone who never watches TV I sure as hell watch a lot of shows! I download them and if I like them I buy them on DVD. Because I like to hoard good things. I'm currently devouring Being Human, Medium, TSCC, Life and Skins and my all time favorites are Farscape, Firefly, Supernatural, Law&Order SVU... I'm probably forgetting some but yeah, I love TV shows. Movies tend to drag on and on and I'm not always in the mood for that but 40 minutes of compact action awesomeness? I'm in!
