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

27. Would you break the law to save a loved one?

Save their life? Absolutely.

26. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

I'm guessing this question isn't about my cognitive ability to realise my age, which is how I first read it, but means, "How old do you feel mentally?"

The answer to that is: In my late 30s.

25. When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards and just do what you know is right?

I guess, when the situation is dire.

My loved ones.

I was doing a search on Chrome and realised there was a Google Doodle. It was a row of birthday candles and the little pop up said, "Happy Birthday, Sarah!"

I had no idea they did that.

As you guys might remember, I have 4 layer compression bandages on my lower legs. The top layer of my compression is a bandage called Koflex that's brown and rather sticky. The nurses usually cover my legs with a layer of comfi-gauze (a thin, stretchy gauze bandage) to stop my legs from sticking together (Koflex to Koflex) when I'm in bed.

The districtnurse didn't have any spare on when she came on Tuesday, so she put on a layer of Surgi-fix (a stretchy, crisscrossed mesh) instead. It didn't work. I really struggled to move my legs in bed on Tuesday night so I got the carers to duct-tape a pillowcase over one leg last night. That worked!

Today, all my carers have been saying, "Is that a pillowcase? Why is it duct-taped to your leg?"

22. What would you regret not fully doing, being or having in your life?

I'd regret not writing. I'd regret not having Daisy, Christine, Elaine, and you guys.

21. If you had to teach something, what would you teach?

Basic English writing skills and I'd throw things at the worst pupils.

20. Which activities make you lose track of time?

Playing video games, especially card, word, or puzzle games.

19. If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow this person to be your friend?

Very probably far too long. It took me several months to snap about Claire and I didn't even like her in the first place.

18. Is it possible to lie without saying a word?

Absolutely. Just keep silent when people voice an assumption.

17. What does your joy look like today?

Playing Puzzle Express. It's a simple game: You fit shapes into an oblong grid in order to fill every space. The shapes appear on a conveyor belt and you have a limited amount of single squares. You can easily run out of room before you get the right shapes to finish off the grid.

The grids are all containers attached to the back of a train and you go to different US cities and are shown info about each city.

What I really like is that every completed line shows a bit of the background picture (the completed grid shows the whole picture) and you can add your own pictures to the game. I love completing a line and trying to figure out which pic it is. I get so disappointed when it's not one of my pics.

I've been trying to get an English version of the game for ages now as the CD Rom versions are in German! I finally found it as a download on WildTangent.

Big ugly bugs.

14. What is the difference between living and existing?

Living is when you enjoy life. Existing is when you don't.
