arnie1967: (Heart - Locked)

My journal is now partly friends-locked. My locked posts are usually just personal ones, but my finished fanfic (which I post under the name of 'Dimity Blue') is posted unlocked here.

New friends are welcome so if you'd like to read, please comment here and let me know.

If you'd like to friend me just to keep up on my fanfic or my advent calendars, feel free! Just drop me a line if you'd like me to friend you back or I'll assume you're just popping by for fic!

Note: If you're looking for Arnie or Arnie1967, that's me! I just fancied a name change. :oD

arnie1967: (Wheelchair)
1. What is your current main mode of transportation? e.g. car, bike, subway, walking etc.

2. Are you satisfied with your current main mode of transportation (answer to question 1)? Why?
No, not really. I'd far rather be able to walk.

3. Do you think you'll change your means of transit soon? e.g. buy a car, get rid of your car, walk more etc.? If so why?
Unfortunately not.

4. If time distance and money were not factors how do you prefer to get from point A to point B?
Carried in a litter by umpteen handsome guys.

5. What was your worst transit experience?
Being in a patient transport ambulance and my wheelchair slid. They strap the wheels down so they're not supposed to move. They had to stop the ambulance and strap my wheels down again.

This has happened to me twice over the past 2 days, so I thought I'd post a warning in case anyone else gets hit.

I was reading a messageboard and one of the pages was redirected to a Firefox warning page with a pop up urging me to "download this security patch". Fortunately, I didn't as I'm extremely suspicious of that kind of crap.

I went looking and found this from Firefox.

The ads on the affected pages are hacked to redirect you to a fake webpage. If it happens to you don't download the security patch.

I've spent most of the day thinking about Manchester.

I hope and pray all those who are missing are found quickly, if only to give their families peace of mind.

Day 113. Five guys you find attractive.

Isn't this pretty much Day 45. List five celebrities that you’re attracted to just worded differently? Hmmm, maybe not, but I think my answers would be the same.

So... Let's see... Instead I'll post about five actors whose work I really enjoy.

1. How did you name your pets?
Sometimes the names just popped into my head. Sometimes I had to think for a bit.

2. Poirot or Miss Marpel?
I like them both. (And it's Marple.)

3. Do you have a FB account too?
Yep, though I don't often use it.

4. Books - hardcover or paperback
Kindle, if I can. It's the easiest way to read for me.

5. Mobile(cell phone): Windows/Android or Apple?
I don't think my phone has either of those. It's a fairly simple one.

Day 94. What is one quote that inspires you the most?

I don't have one, but here are some of my favourites:

Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while.
The Princess Bride.

Be patient and tough; someday this pain will be useful to you.

Do what you can, being what you are. Shine like a glow worm, if you can't be a star.

Your body is not who you are. The mind and spirit transcend the body.
Christopher Reeve.

BBC link.

Researchers are in a race against time to identify over a million Jews who were murdered in the Holocaust.

I hope they manage to identify them all. :o(
