These are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing’s users. As in, they sit on the shelf to make you look smart or well-rounded. Bold the ones you've read, underline the ones you've read for school, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish.

And that's all I've got to say about that.

My favorite meme is going around again. It's been awhile, and I really enjoy this one, so let's give it another whirl:

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, (even if we don't speak often or ever) please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and me.

It can be anything you want - good or bad - BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE.

When you're finished, post this little paragraph in your LJ and see what your friends come up with.

I purloined this meme idea from [ profile] cakeface:

Cite a year between 1967 and 2007 in your comment, and I'll tell you how I remember it. If it's too far back for me to clearly recall, I'll fill in the gaps with family lore and/or plausible surmises.

Hint: election years are good. I've been paying attention to those since I was in single digits.

For those unfamiliar, the Rules:

1. Leave me a casual comment of no particular significance, like a lyric to your current favourite song, your favourite kind of sandwich, or maybe your favourite game. Any remark, meaningless or not.
2. I will respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in your own post.
5. When others respond with a desultory comment, you will ask them five questions

So there's this career meme that's going around:

1. Go to
2. Put in Username: nycareers, Password: landmark.
3. Take their "Career Matchmaker" questions.
4. Post the top umpty results.
5. Bold the ones you've done, and italicise the ones you've considered.

My Results )

Well, at least the first few are pretty accurate ...

Meme, per [ profile] aztecson:

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now, SHAPING YOUR SUMMER. Post these instructions in your LJ along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they're listening to.

7 Songs, 7 Tags )

Meme Rules: Go to & look up ten twelve of your favorite movies. Post three IMDB plot keywords for each movie, and have your friends guess the movie titles!

1. Nostalgia / Buxom / Crazy Uncle ([ profile] dlasky fondly remembers Amarcord)

2. Family / Genius / Lesbian (Not The Royal Tanenbaums, although I gather that it could be, but Antonia's Line)

3. Army Life / Nuclear / Nymphomania (Not Dr. Strangelove, but Blue Sky)

4. Penis / Frog / Hairdresser ([ profile] jmargethe knows all there is to know about The Crying Game)

5. Post-Apocalyptic / Snail / Musical Saw ([ profile] uniquecrash5 wrapped up Delicatessen)

6. Father Daughter Relationship / Cooking / Baptism (Eat Drink Man Woman)

7. Dysfunctional family / Political Intrigue / Christmas (Nope, sorry, not Die Hard, but The Lion in Winter)

8. Satire / Widower / Ranting (Network)

9. Ashes / Road / Teacher (The Opposite of Sex)

10. Home Movie / Amnesia / Two Way Mirror ([ profile] jmargethe knew these two people from Paris, Texas)

11. Mute / Caress / Mutilation ([ profile] jmargethe correctly keyed The Piano)

12. Wedding Party / Fork / Flying Woman (seriously, if I had to choose one favorite film of all time, it would be this: Time of the Gypsies)

Clues: Movies are listed alpha, by title. And, much as I love my gangster and noir pictures, there's really none belonging to those genres, up there.

Buena suerte. :)

According to Beliefnet's Belief-O-Matic, I'm basically a secular humanist, but have strong affinities for Unitarianism, liberal Quakerism, Theravada. Which sounds about right, I guess:

Listing My Religions )

If I'd taken this a few years back, I suspect that Mahayana would have scored higher. But I'm more comfortable with that ol' time Buddhism, at this point in my life--if it was good enough for ol' Gautama ...

I've been scoring the same thing on (varioius iterations of) the Myers Briggs personality test since I was 17. I guess I'm not that likely to change, at this point, eh?

I'm always amazed that anyone can tell that I'm from the Deleware Valley, because I spent my entire childhood trying to sound unlike the people I grew up with. Also, I haven't lived there in over twenty years!

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: Philadelphia

Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you're not from Philadelphia, then you're from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you've ever journeyed to some far off place where people don't know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn't have a clue what accent it was they heard.

Mind you, my TV's just a DVD monitor, so I'm not all that up-to-date on what's on the tube, these days. Apparently, I more than made up for that in years past, though:

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now (even if we don't speak often), please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE-UP, FICTIONAL "memory" of you and me. It can be anything you want - good or bad - BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE.

When you're finished, post these two paragraphs on your blog and be surprised--or mortified--about what people DON'T ACTUALLY remember about you.
