Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates it!  (and the appropriate Passover greeting to those who celebrate Passover...)

Today's off-topic topic:

What do you and your family do for Easter?  Any traditions which persist?

Hi there!  I know it's been a while, but I realized I had a burning question to ask of all of you.

Are you ready?  This is a big one.

Okay, here it is:

Are you alive, dead, undead, or some other description not listed here?

*grin*  Thanks.  As you can see, this is a matter of great importance.

So LJ has been having some issues over the last week, and it brought me to wonder of all of you:

When the Internet goes down, what do you do with the time you would have spent on it?

I have a tendency to dwell on it, and so I keep refreshing the page I'm trying to reach.  Or fussing with my computer and trying to get it to connect.  When I get fed up with that, I try to read, or work on homework that doesn't require the internet, but I'm very distractable during that time.  I guess I'm more bothered by the fact that the internet isn't working, even if I'm not going to use it much anyway!

Whew!  We're finally reaching the end of the heat wave, at least where I am.  It's only supposed to be 84 F today, rather than 90 or 95 (or 99 like it was on Thursday).

Now, I know not all of you were in the midst of the heat wave, but I'm curious.

Are you a warm-weather or cold-weather person?  What range of temperatures is most comfortable for you?  Include notes about humidity, seasons, etc. if you wish!

The house I'm renting with some friends was a bit more quiet this weekend-- one of the housemates was away, and the fourth hasn't moved in yet, so it was just me and my boyfriend.  So what did we do?  We sang.

See, the thing is, we both like to sing but we want to project when we do, so we're always worried we're going to take over the house with the music we're making.  We don't want to overwhelm anything else that might be going on, but we don't necessarily have a good way of keeping the music to ourselves (we're still figuring out how soundproof some of the rooms are, but it's not much).  So we wait until there's nobody else around, and then we sing and project as we want to.

So my question for you is:

What music do you enjoy, and how do you enjoy it best?  Do you sing/ play an instrument or just listen?  Is there any music that you only play when nobody else is around?

Hi all!  Time for another edition of the Sunday Sillies.  I'm hoping y'all are going to chip in this time, else I might start wondering if all 300 of you are dead or something.

SO.

A couple weekends ago my boyfriend/housemate (there are 4 of us in the house) adopted a kitten from the SPCA.  He's so cute... most of the time.  Especially when he's entertaining himself.  But it seems like any time anybody gets out a game he manages to interfere: whether it's Magic: the Gathering, where the cards go flying, or a computer game.  Kitten on the keyboard, anyone?

Needless to say, this reminded me of one of the frequent problems that writers have, where as soon as they sit down at the computer to write, they have an animal begging for attention or just plain getting in their way.

Now, your turn!  Do you have any pets, and how do they manage to get in your way?

It's Sunday, and that means that it's time for the Sunday Sillies!  I'm going to post a topic each week that has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH WRITING.  That's right, something completely unrelated.

Wait, but we're a writing community, why would we do things unrelated to writing?  That's just silly, don't you think?

That's the point!

My housemates and I are all in graduate school for mechanical engineering-type fields (mine's a little different, but that's beside the point), and we all really enjoy the TV show "The Big Bang Theory."  For those who don't know, it's about a bunch of really nerdy male physicists and engineers who aren't necessarily that socially adept, and their neighbor, Penny, who knows nothing about science, but manages to be their friend.  Somehow.

So my housemates and I were watching an episode last night and the quote went like this:

Penny: "Are you trying to get it telepathically? "
Sheldon: "I think you mean telekinetically, and no."

I just had to laugh, tremendously, because I had had the same exact thought as Sheldon right before he said it.

So, there it is.  What TV shows or characters can you identify with so much that you can anticipate what they're going to say before they say it?
