I am very sorry to say that my livejournal days are over. I'm very overwhelmed by work at the moment, in love, and I want to turn my writing away from fanfiction and towards something completely original. I feel that this is an important and exciting time in my life and I have to devote more time and energy to new things. I love you all very much, and I will miss every one of you! I am truly sad to leave and I want to thank all my great friends here for being wonderful!!

To anyone visiting this journal: you are more than welcome to all my work. Enjoy!!

I was tagged by sepira for that meme that everyone is doing...

A) People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs & replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

B) Tag 6 people to do this quiz & those who are tagged cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by & cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by. Continue this game by sending it to other people.
</lj>My wishes, desires, and confessions...Collapse )


And here's a meme that I snagged from sophie_lizzie

1. Put your iPod/iTunes on shuffle
2. Press play, and click next for every entry.
3. Post a section of lyrics from that song for your flist to guess.
4. When someone guesses (don't Google the lyrics) correctly, cross out that lyric and put their name and the correct answer next to it so everyone can bow down to them.
</lj>Over here...Collapse )

Also, I recently discovered the wonderful gangster films of the 1930s with the amazing James Cagney. Here's a video for all the other Cagney admirers out there. I claim no credit for the video.

Whaddyou hear, whaddyou say?Collapse )

And as a final not after this ridiculously long post, GOOD LUCK TO OBAMA!!!

I just had to jump on the bandwagon and post the book meme everyone is posting! Apparently, I've read more than the average adult. Very nice to know.

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicise those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you love, and strike out the books you read but didn't like.
