MSN Whiteboard.. something else that can be fun! / Quizzes

Corey and I are having lots of fun with this! Boobs, bears, booty logos (don't ask :P), people peeing on trees, etc. :D

If you have MSN, go to Actions ----> Start Whiteboard. It might be fun to doodle away with your friends, and see what demented stuff you can come up with! :D

Take the quiz:
What style are you?

All right... you are a goth. Your color is black! That's all right because I know you are being yourself, but just try to lighten up a little. Chances are, you are a lot like everyone else, and you just don't know it. Try dressing in.... dark blue for a change, just to see how you like it. It could work for you!

Name Meme / Disability

My middle name does NOT start with an I. ;)

Name Meme

I know people whose names are...












This explains perfectly what it feels like to be disabled / ill.

Found this in someone else's journal.

I don't have lupus, but I have a mild form of cerebral palsy.

My best friend and I were in the diner talking. As usual, it was very late and we were eating French fries with gravy. Like normal girls our age, we spent a lot of time in the diner while in college, and most of the time we spent talking about boys, music or trivial things, that seemed very important at the time. We never got serious about anything in particular and spent most of our time laughing.

As I went to take some of my medicine with a snack as I usually did, she watched me this time, with a kind of stare, instead of continuing the conversation. She then asked me out of the blue what it felt like to have Lupus and be sick. I was shocked not only because she asked the random question, but also because I assumed she knew all there was to know about Lupus. She came to doctors with me, she saw me walk with a cane, and throw up in the bathroom. She had seen me cry in pain, what else was there to know? I started to ramble on about pills, and aches and pains, but she kept pursuing, and didn't seem satisfied with my answers. I was a little surprised as she'd been my roommate in college, and friend for years; I thought she already knew the medical definition of Lupus. Then she looked at me with a face every sick person knows well, the face of pure curiosity about something no one healthy can truly understand. She asked what it felt like, not physically, but what it felt like to be me, to be sick with this disease.

As I tried to gain my composure, I glanced around the table for help or guidance, or at least stall for time to think. I was trying to find the right words. How do I answer a question I never was able to answer for myself? How do I explain every detail of every day being affected, and give the emotions a sick person goes through with clarity. I could have given up, cracked a joke like I usually do, and changed the subject, but I remember thinking if I don't try to explain this, how could I ever expect her to understand. If I can't explain this to my best friend, how could I explain my world to anyone else? I had to at least try.

At that moment, the spoon theory was born. I quickly grabbed every spoon on the table; hell, I grabbed spoons off of the other tables. I looked at her in the eyes and said, "Here you go, you have Lupus." She looked at me slightly confused, as anyone would when they are being handed a bouquet of spoons. The cold metal spoons clanked in my hands, as I grouped them together and shoved them into her hands. I explained that the difference in being sick and being healthy is having to make choices, or to consciously think about things when the rest of the world doesn't have to. The healthy have the luxury of choice, a gift most people take for granted.

Most people start the day with unlimited amount of possibilities, and energy to do whatever they desire, especially young people. For the most part, they do not need to worry about the effects of their actions. So for my explanation, I used spoons to convey this point. I wanted something for her to actually hold, for me to then take away, since most people who get sick feel a "loss" of a life they once knew. If I was in control of taking away the spoons, then she would know what it feels like to have someone or something else, in this case Lupus, being in control of your life.

She grabbed the spoons with excitement. She didn't understand what I was doing, but she is always up for a good time, so I guess she thought I was cracking a joke of some kind like I usually do when talking about touchy topics. Little did she know how serious I would become.

I asked her to count her spoons. She asked why, and I explained that when you are healthy, you expect to have a never-ending supply of "spoons." But when you have to now plan your day, you need to know exactly how many "spoons" you are starting with. It doesn't guarantee that you might not lose some along the way, but at least it helps to know where you are starting. She counted out 12 spoons. She laughed and said she wanted more. I said no, and I knew right away that this little game would work, when she looked disappointed, and we hadn't even started yet. I've wanted more "spoons" for years and haven't found a way yet to get more, why should she? I also told her to always be conscious of how many she had, and not to drop them because she can never forget she has Lupus.

I asked her to list off the tasks of her day, including the most simple. As she rattled off daily chores or just fun things to do, I explained how each one would cost her a spoon. When she jumped right into getting ready for work as her first task of the morning, I cut her off and took away a spoon. I practically jumped down her throat. I said: "No! You don't just get up. You have to crack open your eyes, and then realize you are late. You didn't sleep well the night before. You have to crawl out of bed, and then you have to make yourself something to eat before you can do anything else, because if you don't, you can't take your medicine, and if you don't take your medicine, you might as well give up all your spoons for today and tomorrow too." I quickly took away a spoon and she realized she hasn't even gotten dressed yet. Showering cost her a spoon, just for washing her hair and shaving her legs. Reaching high and low that early in the morning could actually cost more than one spoon, but I figured I would give her a break; I didn't want to scare her right away. Getting dressed was worth another spoon. I stopped her and broke down every task to show her how every little detail needs to be thought about. You cannot simply just throw clothes on when you are sick. I explained that I have to see what clothes I can physically put on, if my hands hurt that day, buttons are out of the question. If I have bruises that day, I need to wear long sleeves; if I have a fever, I need a sweater to stay warm, and so on. If my hair is falling out, I need to spend more time to look presentable, and then you need to factor in another five minutes for feeling badly that it took you two hours to do all this stuff because it really shouldn't take you that long.

I think she was starting to understand when she theoretically didn't even get to work, and she was left with 6 spoons. I then explained to her that she needed to choose the rest of her day wisely, since when your "spoons" are gone, they are gone. Sometimes you can borrow against tomorrow's "spoons," but just think how hard tomorrow will be with less "spoons." I also needed to explain that a person who is sick always lives with the looming thought that tomorrow may be the day that a cold comes, or an infection, or any number of things that could be very dangerous. So you do not want to run low on "spoons," because you never know when you truly will need them. I didn't want to depress her, but I needed to be very realistic, and unfortunately being prepared for the worst is part of a real day for me.

We went through the rest of the day, and she slowly learned that skipping lunch would cost her a spoon, as well as standing on a train, or even typing at her computer too long. She was forced to make choices and think about things differently. She had to choose not to run errands hypothetically, so that she could eat dinner that night.

When we got to the end of her pretend day, she said she was hungry. I summarized that she had to eat dinner, but she only had one spoon left. If she cooked, she wouldn't have enough energy to clean the pots. If she went out for dinner, she might be too tired to drive home safely. Then I also explained that I didn't even bother to add this into the game: she was so bloody nauseous that cooking was probably out of the question anyway. So she decided to make soup, since it was easy. I then said it is only 7 PM, and you have the rest of the night. But you ended up with one spoon, so you can do something fun, or clean your apartment, or do chores, but you can't do it all.

I rarely see her emotional, so when I saw her upset, I knew maybe I was getting through to her. I didn't want my friend to be upset, but at the same time, I was happy to think finally maybe someone understood me a little bit. She had tears in her eyes and asked quietly, "Christine, how do you do it? Do you really do this everyday?" I explained that some days were worse then others; some days, I have more spoons then most. But I can never make it go away and I can't forget about it; I always have to think about it. I handed her a spoon I had been holding in reserve. I said simply, "I have learned to live life with an extra spoon in my pocket, in reserve. You need to always be prepared."

It's hard; the hardest thing I ever had to learn is to slow down, and not do everything. I fight this to this day. I hate feeling left out, having to choose to stay home, or to not get things done that I want to. I wanted her to feel that frustration. I wanted her to understand, that everything everyone else does comes so easy, but for me it is one hundred little jobs in one. I need to think about the weather, my temperature that day, and the whole day's plans before I can attack any one given thing. When other people can simply do things, I have to attack it and make a plan like I am strategizing a war. It is in that lifestyle, the difference between being sick and healthy. It is the beautiful ability to not think and just do. I miss that freedom. I miss never having to count "spoons."

After we were emotional and talked about this for a little while longer, I sensed she was sad. Maybe she finally understood. Maybe she realized that she never could truly and honestly say she understands. But at least now she might not complain so much when I can't go out for dinner some nights, or when I never seem to make it to her house and she always has to drive to mine. I gave her a hug when we walked out of the diner. I had the one spoon in my hand, and I said: "Don't worry. I see this as a blessing. I have been forced to think about everything I do. Do you know how many spoons people waste every day? I don't have room for wasted time or wasted "spoons," and I chose to spend this time with you."

Ever since this night, I have used the spoon theory to explain my life to many people. In fact, my family and friends refer to spoons all the time. It has been a code word for what I can and cannot do. Once people understand the spoon theory, they seem to understand me better, but I also think they live their life a little differently too. I think it isn't just good for a better understanding of Lupus, but also of anyone dealing with any disability or illness. Hopefully, they don't take so much for granted or their life in general. I give a piece of myself, in every sense of the word, when I do anything. It has become an inside joke. I have become famous for saying to people jokingly that they should feel special when I spend time with them, because they have one of my "spoons." That should be enough for them.

Bizarre News / Stats / Driver Rant / Music's Bad Boys / Beer / Quizzes

Bizarre News... in case you're wondering why I'm so weird. :P

Rant for Jasmine on asshole drivers with no regard for pedestrians:

I don't know what it is with certain drivers who think that they own the road, and can drive like a bat out of hell. I'd like to think that the majority of drivers watch out for hazards on the road, pedestrians, animals, and all of that. But sometimes, I'm not so sure. Take the time when I was crossing the street on MY GREEN LIGHT and almost got killed! There was this motorist in a white car who apparently couldn't wait an extra few seconds for me to get out of his way before he made a turn. Yes, I know I walk more slowly than others... but the dipwad almost ran me over, and didn't care about it! It wasn't a case of how I should've been more careful, either. I did look both ways before crossing, you know.

I swear, the drivers who don't look before proceeding on their merry way should be forced to take some sort of remedial training, and have their license revoked after another offense. Now, if you cross in the middle of a busy street when there's a crosswalk 10 feet away, that's your own fault. (even if you want to catch a bus) Yeah, I've done this before WHEN THE STREET WASN'T BUSY AS HELL! Sure, you have to learn to pick and choose your time to do this... but combine that with drivers who don't care about others on the road (especially all the legitimate pedestrians), and you have a lethal combination!

Certain drivers seem to have NO regard for pedestrians, children, animals, or obstructions on the road! I've seen them change lanes very quickly, seemingly without regard for the fact that there are a zillion other CARS on the road and IN THEIR WAY! Come to think of it, perhaps it's like a little game to them... "If I dodge this many cars in my way, I'll be at my destination two seconds sooner... it's all about shaving the time off my commute, baby!" Driving is NOT a GAME. You should learn to be more careful... it won't really kill you to wait an extra few seconds for someone to cross the road / get out of your way before you turn! (and if you have a medical emergency, I'd hope you don't choose the busiest roads to get to the hospital or wherever it is you're going!)

IrfanView, nosiness, and Swiss Chalet gift cards

Did a lot of stuff with music files tonight... finally figured out how to save things that people (Tim) send me via email. I thought that I could just download the file and save it to the desktop to play it. Turns out I have to click the "Download File" link, set it to play in a media player, then save the temp file (closing IrfanView first) to another folder. Whew, that can be confusing!

Also talked to my sister tonight... she finally got her Ontario drivers license. She still won't tell me where she got her Palm Pilot a few years ago, because I'm "nosy".. well, so is SHE! :P

At least she came up with a suggestion for her birthday gift that didn't involve money directly... you know, cash or a check. I don't trust my mother with either of those, but then that's the way things are. Steph wants one of these gift cards, preferably the Swiss Chalet or Jack Astor's one. (with Milestones included!) The last time I went to a Swiss Chalet was in November 2003 with Eric, Brian, and Sean... that was hilarious! She last went in December, since they have lots of them over there. The kid also wants me to put at least $30-$50 ($100?) on it, since she's a starving student and all. We shall see if I find them at the store next week, first!

Also, I hope Eric M. comes online tomorrow after work so we can make Friday plans. Was hoping for that tonight, but no dice. Oh well. We've usually managed to cobble together something so far. ;)

Missing someone / Groom of the Stool / Rock Genre, Emo Band, Year, Crazy Quiz

Remnants of Holiday Mail: I got a Russian postcard from Katya last week, and an English "random waffling snail mail" letter from Ann at the University of London yesterday. Very awesome! :D

Note: LJ Valentines Day to Remember blogquiz, by Larinzia.

If you're really missing someone right now,
and you can't stop thinking about them,
and you want to be with them more than they know,
re-post this in your journal...

(the person is NOT who you're thinking of, either! :P)

In the court of King Henry VIII, the Groom of the Stool was given the job of cleaning the royal posterior with his hand. The Groom of the Stool was both a highly respected and coveted position. For security reasons, only a highly trusted courtier would be chosen. The position was coveted because of the influence he might have with the king, daily having the opportunity to be alone with His Majesty.

From The History of Toilet Paper.

Grunge! You're all about the music and would even
turn your back on fame just to stay true to
your roots... You reached your high in the
early '90s, but you're still making some good
stuff! Keep rocking!

What genre of rock are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

You scored as Alexisonfire. You love to scream. There is nothing better in the world. Okay, for all of you people who think they're emo, but have no clue why I did the whole TBS and Brand New hate thing: It was because of the feud between Jessy Lacey (Brand New), Adam Lazarra (TBS), and John Nolan (Straylight Run).



Coheed and Cambria


Straylight Run


From Autumn to Ashes


Dashboard Confessional




My Chemical Romance


Fear Before the March of Flames


Dead Poetic

Which Emo Band Best Fits Your Personality?
created with

HAHAHAHA... somehow, I'm not surprised!

You Belong in 1969


If you scored...

1950 - 1959: You're fun-loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!

1960 - 1969: You are a free spirit with a huge heart. Love, peace, and happiness rule - oh, and drugs too.

1970 - 1979: Bold and brash, you take life by the horns. Whether you're partying or protesting, you give it your all!

1980 - 1989: Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.

1990 - 1999: With you, anything goes! You're grunge one day, ghetto fabulous the next. It's all good!

Take the quiz: "The Wildest, Craziest, Most Massive Quiz Ever!"

A Burning Burgundy Buttercup
Omigawd! I survived the biggest, wildest quiz on the internet! I thought it would never end! Now I am posting this Tongue-Twisting result to dare you to take it. Can you survive it?

This quiz should really have had multiple choices enabled for most of the questions!

Reminds me of what my friend Denise and Brian's sister Julie said about vending machines at Summer Conference 2000: "Too many choices... I can't decide!" Then Brian told me: "Just choose FOR her!" *laugh*

Funny Things Said During Lovemaking / Intimate Moments, 5000-Comment Fest Finally Done, KISS quiz

I needed a laugh earlier today.... This RQ post reminds me of this Straight Dope thread.

Corey says that Something Awful has really good threads about stuff like that once in a while... and it's a lot funnier. So I told him to send them my way if he ever finds one, hahaha!

(no, I do NOT have a perverted mind! :P)

The 5000-Comment Fest in my LJ is finally done, after being up since last May! Phew!

Farrah and I are truly insane, but it can be done! :D

My friend Steve might be interested in this quiz. ;)

Snake meat soup, beef brisket noodles with various innards, and my evil plans to conquer the world

Just got back from clearing my head, and now I feel a fair bit better about recent events! :D

Went for lunch with my parents at the Public Market: we went to the same place we did in January 2004. (Leung Kee, which specializes in homemade beef tripe and snake meat soup) Had some snake soup, plus some beef brisket noodles with tendon / stomach / lung / spleen. Also had some orange bubble tea for dessert. My mom also gave me some potstickers for later... that should be good stuff. *thumbsup*

I just got some spam from the Malena Mgt. Group: "Let Your House Pay Your Bills." As soon as I saw that, I thought of my friend Laura's sister. (who has the name Malena)

Thanks for this one, Claudia! :D

Congratulations on being the creator of a new Evil Plan (tm)!

Your objective is simple: Widespread Misery.

Your motive is a little bit more complex: Revenge

Stage One

To begin your plan, you must first incinerate a rich and powerful CEO. This will cause the world to slaughter a sacred calf to appease the gods, horrified by your arrival. Who is this demon straight out of hell? Where did they come from? And why do they look so good in your wizard's robes?

Stage Two

Next, you must vaporize the Eiffel Tower. This will all be done from a obsidian citadel, a mysterious place of unrivaled dark glory. Upon seeing this, the world will gibber like madmen, as countless hordes of mutant race hasten to do your every bidding.

Stage Three

Finally, you must reveal to the world your unholy weapon, bringing about horrors beyond man's comprehension. Your name shall become synonymous with sheer dementedness, and no man will ever again dare sneer cruelly at your disfigured face. Everyone will bow before your mind-boggling insanity, and the world will have no choice but to give you control of the planet.

Devise Your Own Evil Plan!
