I tried going vegetarian for a while after I met my boyfriend. I suppose I did it because I didn't want him to think I was unhealthy. I think I also did it to try and make myself like veggies. I only stuck with it around him mostly. I'd say the relationship lasted a lot longer than the vegetarianism did seeing as I'm now married to the man in question, lol.

Of course, Lord of the Rings. I think Peter Jackson did a terrific job with a lot of material. I'm also looking forward to seeing what HBO do with George Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series.

Well that word for a start, incentivized gets on my nerves. I can barely pronounce it given my obsessive compulsive need to pronounce things properly, the way they were meant to be. 'Think outside the box' is another one. It's vague and cliche. I prefer to 'use my creativity to come up with new ideas' since that's technically what you're doing when 'thinking outside the box'.

And speaking of my compulsive need to pronounce things correctly, if my mother-in-law tells me one more time about her migraines and pronounces it 'me-graine', I think I may scream. It's a 'mi-graine', there's a reason it's an 'i' and not an 'e'.

Also in the same vein, I can't work out whether David Cameron has been saying 'nuclear' or 'nucular' in the debates, which brings me to another catchphrase - 'War on Terror'. I'm aware of that thanks, now I wish politicians would quit using it as an excuse to pass stupid laws and regulations to do whatever the hell they want.

Out of sheer boredom I decided to go back and read my Livejournal right back to the first post I ever made, over 3 years ago. :P Discovered some interesting things back there, including the fact that I used to curse a lot in my entries.

Just finished watching the debate. I think Nick Clegg came out on top once again. Why was it that he always had to remind the other two what the origingal question was when they wandered off on tangents? He must have freaked them out last week because Brown and Cameron tried to rip him to shreds.

I did find it funny on the immigration that Clegg was the only one talking about what he would do about the illegals already living here.

And how come Sky keep talking to Labour spin politicians and Tory politicians and hardly any Lib Dems? Biased much. :P

Unsurprising, seeing as I plan to vote Lib Dem anyway. Didn't realise I had so much in common with the Green party though.

Just a few random things I've been asking myself in the last 24 hours.....

1. Why did I stay up till 2 am last night reading the final Mistborn book? I haven't stayed up that late reading in a few years.

2. I had no idea how hard it is to start writing a novel, even if it is just for myself. How the hell do you start?

3. When are the tv channels going to stop showing those god-awful reality shows and put on some decent dramas/documentaries?

4. I'm currently wearing a tank top and jeans. So why are my legs freezing cold, when my arms are not?

5. Why does my mum-in-law keep asking me when my parents are coming over? If I've told her once, I've told her at least 5 times already. Write it down!!

That is all.

Bored at home after a nice day out, so took that political spectrum quiz......

My Political Views:

I am a left social moderate

Left: 4.37, Authoritarian: 0.78 Political Spectrum Quiz

On my foreign policy I scored a -4.05, meaning I lean quite a bit toward non-interventionalist side. My culture score was -4.21, also non-interventionalist.

Trance without a doubt, it's all I pretty much listen to anyway. I don't mind other genres like classical and reggae and a bit of rock, but if I had to stick with one it would be trance, I just love the way it makes me feel. :)

It's a stupid, stupid, stupid thing to be doing. First off, you're messing with nature (big no-no in my book) and nature will come back to kick you up the arse for that, it always does. Second, just cloning the sheep had tons and tons of problems, especially with things like disease. You really want a diseased version of yourself running around? And third, you've lost your uniqueness now there's someone else just like you running around. Scientists shouldn't be looking at doing it just because they want to see if they can, there's other stuff they should be doing, like looking for cures for AIDS and cancer.

Well given the mess that Bush left him (two wars, a recession and trillions of dollars of debt and mass unemployment among other things) I think he's done pretty well. I hope he's able to push this healthcare bill through. Compared to Britain, the fact that a good many Americans seem to think it's ok to leave millions of their own countrymen uninsured. It was mostly that and his policies on Iran and N Korea that made me vote for him. I'd vote for him again if he runs in 2012 for sure. I may not live in America anymore but it's surprising how who's in the Oval Office makes a difference on the rest of the world. I didn't listen to his State of the Union address though.

Though more urgently I need to figure out who to vote for in Britain's upcoming General Election. All I can say is it's anyone except Labour. I hate them.

I went to the local public school till about 3rd grade, then my mother got fed up of them treating me like I was stupid and a misbehaving brat, even though I had a known learning disorder. Plus that school didn't have a very good reputation then, so she pulled me out and put me in private school that went all the way up to 12th grade. Unfortunately my time at the other school made me so shy I had trouble making friends at my new school. I think I did ok though, it got better in high school when I began to care less about it.

Sight, definitely. The others I could cope without, but not sight. I would hate to not be able to see the world around me and it would also mean I wouldn't be able to read any more (no way I could learn Braille). I could have more independence as well with just my sight. If I lost my taste, I could eat all the healthy veggies that I hate and be nice and healthy, lol. If I lost smell, I would no longer have to smell it when they do muck spreading around here in spring and late summer. Touch and hearing, I could manage ok without too.

Personally I think smoking is a nasty habit. Why do people wanna make themselves sick smoking something that they know isn't good for them?

I liked the smoking ban that England brought in, meaning that non-smokers can go down to the pub now and not have smoke blown in their faces. Pubs used to be full up of people lighting up, now they're not. It bugs me though that smokers are getting all uptight about it, saying they can't enjoy their time down the pub anymore. Hey if you wanna smoke, fine, you can go outside and not blow your second-hand smoke in my face. You choose to smoke, not me and I don't want cancer because you think you ought to be allowed to blow smoke in my face.

I hate Mondays, always have. Although I don't work or go to school, i just don't like them because hubby goes back to work and I'd much rather spend time with him. Which is why I like the weekends so much. I like being able to sleep in and not have to get up.
