Dreams of visiting Corey in Colorado, plus water waves / Lip gloss flavor, birth month meaning

I had a dream last night that I visited Corey in Colorado. My mom was there too for some reason, which was highly disturbing. I remember sitting on his bed (with a flower print bedspread?!) and staring at his computer screen, as well as talking a lot to him about stuff. Heck, I even remember the brown table with a white vase in the hallway near the soft pink wall. (man, this sounds as if he's a "girly man"... *laughs*)

Then there was another part to the dream where a bunch of people from church were walking around in a grassy field, and then a giant wave of water came up and threatened to suck them all away. People were even pushing people into the water so that they'd die... but I escaped unharmed. o_O

I don't want to know why, but then I kinda do... the first part's likely explained by all the hypothetical discussion this week of what Corey and I would do if I visited him. (checking out the spelling of the Pepsi Center sign (trip isn't worth it for that!), Six Flags, rollercoasters, staying at his place, stuffing pucks into our mouths, etc.)

I wonder what he'll say when I tell him that he made an appearance in my dreams again.... :P

For those of you who don't know, he's the Internet friend that I've known the longest... we met on ICQ on November 2001. :D

Note: LJ Friends Death Order blogquiz, by Cheezer.

Your Lip Gloss Flavor Is
Pineapple Pin-up

Revivification vs. being unkilled / Jasmine getting my book / Tonks and YM / Quizzes

I say that "revivification" sounds better than "unkilled." Corey takes the opposite stance... too bad for him, since at least 24 people agree with me, versus only about 10 for him. I'm going to make a couple of other polls too... :D

Yay! Jasmine got the Princess Jasmine bookmark and the Middlesex (Jeffrey Eugenides) book I sent her! :D

I got an unexpected buzz from someone named "dreampsixi" on YM. After breaking out my "belligerent mode" since they answered "who are you?" with "I am me, lol"... I finally got answers. Turns out she's Sarah (Tonks) from Our Place... haha, cool. :D

You Are Marsha Marsha Marshmallow Ice Cream

Outdoorsy and gluttonous... yup, that's you!

Mmm, this quiz makes me want some ice cream. I think I'll have some Breyer's mint chocolate chip... yes, again! :D

Your Winter Look is Urban

You can't imagine spending your winters any place but the city!

Your Christmas Costume Should Be
Red Nosed Reindeer

How appropriate, since I picked the reindeer over the snowman. ;)


You scored 76% Sociability and 23% Sophistication!

Yes, you're the period. You are the end. If there is going to be a beginning, it means you will be there, eventually. Without you, we'd all run out of breath. You love hanging around with simple, fun people -- you just don't get tired of them. Oh, sure, occasionally, for a brief time, you might have to stand aside for a question mark or an exclamation point; but how can you begrudge them their time in the sun? Everyone will always come back to you. And if you are often taken for granted, well, that just naturally goes with being the sort of person who is invariably there, doing his job, and making no fuss. You are a good person; never forget it.

My test tracked 2 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

evil again and again. Keep that arm cannon blasting!

Rob McVicker gets a chance in goal / Quizzes

The Canucks scored just 18 seconds into the eventual 5-3 game against Edmonton tonight (Josh Green's second in two games), but it was practically all Edmonton after that. Daniel Sedin scored for us and Ohlund had three assists... Jarret Stoll scored twice for them, and almost had a hat trick but for his stick breaking! There were no penalties in the first period, which doesn't happen too often. The Oiler dressing room attendant got hit by Cory Cross' flying puck, but he's okay: heck, Joey got his wisdom teeth pulled today too! (talk about playing hurt)

Alex Auld allowed 5 goals on 28 shots, so he got pulled in favor of Rob McVicker from Manitoba with 5:12 remaining. Carter scored after that, but it was a bit too late. Then McVicker went to the bench in favor of an extra attacker with 2:15 remaining in the game, so he had a brief NHL debut in relief for Vancouver. Speaking of goalies, Cloutier could be ready when the team makes their trip east. The team played with urgency in the last minute... why they can't do that on a consistent basis, I don't know. The three stars were Jarret Stoll, Raffi Torres, and Jussi Markkanen (their goalie).

Now they're 5-7-2 in Northwest Division games, and 5-8-2 on the road. We still lead our division, but only by one point. Shots on goal: 28-26 in favor of Edmonton. There goes our perfect record when scoring the first goal of a game... now we head east for a change of scenery and the teams we can only see via satellite now. In the first 27 games of the season, we've only faced 12 opponents... ten of those games we've played against Minnesota and Colorado. But we play the Oilers three times this month, and Rob McVicker has a perfect 0.00 GPA for us. (ha, silver linings!)

Yeah, the game was kinda like last night's game against the Avalanche in reverse... o_O

Shamelessly stolen from Spoz's blog:

"A South Dakota teenager has been caught in a compromising position with a female mannequin on display at a Sioux Falls arts center. Specifically, security guards found Michael Plentyhorse, 18, sprawled with the half-naked dummy on the floor with his pants and undergarments down. "There was inappropriate activity between him and the mannequin," said police spokesman Loren McManus. "That's the only way I know how to put it." Guards said it wasn't the first time they had noticed that the dummy had been denuded, either. Plentyhorse has since been charged with indecent exposure. If convicted, he could be registered as a sex offender. "People might say it's relatively harmless," commented Hope Matchan, of the prosecutors' department. "But I certainly would want to know if this person was my neighbor."


Neurocam... weird stuff. Oh, and just to help make things even MORE confusing, here's some snippets of info I've managed to dig up on all this..

1. There's a confusing article from Melbourne newspaper THE AGE that tries to look into it (and gets pretty much nowhere..) to quote in brief..

"Thousands would have passed neurocam's billboard, displayed in November on Alexandra Parade, one of Melbourne's main commuter thoroughfares. "Get Out of Your Mind," it urged. But the cryptic website it spruiked gave little insight, only the opportunity to register with name and email address. Clearly, however, the organisers had gone to some trouble to get their message out. The billboard would have cost about $10,000. Whether the whole thing is hoax, mind game, artistic experiment, sinister front, or clever marketing ploy remains unclear."

2. Here's a blog entry where someone lists an email assignment from these freaks..

3. Here's some images apparently found buried in an unprotected portion of the neuroscan website server..

4. Here's some more confused information..

Is this some kinda screwed-up secret society?
An ultra exclusive intranet cabal?
A deeper conspiracy involving freakish deformed monkey mutants and weather balloons?
Some crazy snuff film / Eyes Wide Shut stuff?
Some kinda retarded cross-platform interactive game, stealing ideas from THE GAME and FIGHTCLUB?
Or just a bunch of college fraternity peeps huffing glue?

All I know.. is it started in December.. in Melbourne.. it's still active.. and now the damn thing's worldwide..

Methinks more investigation is in order..
there's an underbelly of weird stuff afoot here.
If I disappear under mysterious circumstances, then I wanna letcha all know.. it's been fun knowing you guys.. and I'll miss you all deeply. If you receive this video tape, it means I have been assassinated.. there is no spoon.. there is no spoon.. choose the red pill, Neo.. (hahahahaha.. yeah, this IS screwed up)

Oh.. and if this turns out to be someone's idea of ART, then I'm idiotically jealous..

I got a new high score in Bookworm Deluxe: 1,465,020 / Level 32 / Bookworm Supreme on Thursday, 12.01.05! Not sure why I always do better in the action game than in the classic game... maybe I work well under the pressure of constant flaming tiles? *giggle* Oh, wait. I've now figured out why I seem to do better on the action games. It's because the flaming tiles don't come all at once and pile up at the bottom five or six deep. o_O

Must call Sam and Eric later for Saturday ride arrangements... I know Eric has guitar lessons tonight, so maybe tomorrow! It'll be so cool not needing a ride back home after Awana, and getting together with friends... I think this will be the first Fellowship Christmas thing I've attended in at least two or three years!

My sister (or more accurately, her friend Vicki) found a quiz (the SESAME STREET one) that I haven't taken yet.. good job, Steph! :D

You scored 52% Organization, 56% abstract, and 57% extroverted!
This test measured 3 variables.

First, this test measured how organized you are. Some muppets like Cookie Monster make big messes, while others like Bert are quite anal about things being clean.

Second, this test measured if you prefer a concrete or an abstract viewpoint. For the purposes of this test, concrete people are considered to gravitate more to mathematical and logical approaches, whereas abstract people are more the dreamers and artistic type.

Third, this test measured if you are more of an introvert or an extrovert.
By definition, an introvert concentrates more on herself and an extrovert focuses more on others. In this test, an introvert was somebody that either tends to spend more time alone or thinks more about herself.

You are somewhat organized, both concrete and abstract, and both introverted and extroverted.

I bet you didn't think you were Snuffleupagus. Let's find out why.

You are both somewhat organized. You have a good idea where you put things, and you probably keep your place reasonably clean. You aren't totally obsessed with neatness, though. Alloyius Snuffleupagus (and all Snuffleupaguses) is not sloppy by nature, but he moves so incredibly slowly that it is impossible for him to be totally organized.

You both are about equally concrete and abstract thinkers. You have a good balance in your life. You know when to be logical at times, but you also aren't afraid to explore your dreams and desires... within limits, of course. Snuffy generally has very basic interests, but he explores his abstract sensitive side when he plays his snuffleflute.

You both are somewhat introverted. Originally, Snuffleupagus was very shy, and was only Big Bird's invisible friend. However, as he has aged, he has started to build new friendships with new characters. Like Snuffy, you probably like to have some time to yourself. However, you do appreciate spending time with your friends, and you aren't scared of social situations.

The other possible characters are:

Oscar the Grouch

Big Bird

Cookie Monster



Kermit the Frog


The Count

Guy Smiley

You Are An Invisible Ex

You're so over your ex, you hardly even remember you have an ex.
You prefer to leave all of the baggage behind you - far, far behind.
As they say, indifference is the opposite of love!

Ed Gein
Your personality matches Criminal Profile 4081643.
Gein's desolate farmhouse was a study in chaos. Inside, junk and rotting garbage covered the floor and counters. It was almost impossible to walk through the rooms. The smell of filth and decomposition was overwhelming. While the local sheriff, Arthur Schley, inspected the kitchen with his flashlight, he felt something brush against his jacket.

When he looked up to see what it was he ran into, he faced a large, human carcass hanging upside down from the beams.


Your personality type matches the criminal profile of Ed Gein. Bizarre handicraft made Eddie into a celebrity. Author Robert Bloch was inspired to write a story about Norman Bates, a character based on Eddie, which became the central theme of the Alfred Hitchcock's classic thriller Psycho.

In 1974, the classic thriller by Tobe Hooper, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, has many Geinian touches, although there is no character that is an exact Eddie Gein model. This movie helped put "Ghastly Gein" back in the spotlight in the mid-1970's.

Years later, Eddie provided inspiration for the character of another serial killer, Buffalo Bill in The Silence of the Lambs. Like Eddie, Buffalo Bill treasured women's skin and wore it like clothing in some insane transvestite ritual.

While shocked deputies searched through the rubble of Eddie Gein's existence, they realized that the horrible discoveries didn't end at the missing Mrs. Worden's body. They had stumbled into a death farm.

The funny-looking bowl in his home was actually the top of a human skull. The lampshades and wastebasket were made from human skin.

A ghoulish inventory began to take shape: an armchair made of human skin, female genitalia kept preserved in a shoebox, a belt made of nipples, a human head, four noses and a heart.

The more the looked through the house, the more ghastly trophies they found. Finally a suit made entirely of human skin. Their heads spun as they tried to tally the number of woman that may have died at Eddie's hands.

While you may or may not be capable of performing the horrific acts he did, you loosely resemble (with some obvious exceptions) his criminal profile based upon your general motivations, preferences and behavior patterns.

Yeah, I've got you pretty well figured out by now.
You're into my style, so check out my fashion.

Sports, Ripley's, and Guinness Books / Questions 1101-1150 of 5000 / Quizzes

Man, I can't believe it's December already... where does the time go? o_O

Translation by Paralink... not much better than AltaVista

I want two sports books: Stephen Brunt's The Way It Looks from Here, and Jim Robson's Hockey Play-by-Play Around the NHL with Jim Robson. Then again, maybe I want too much stuff... I also want the newest 2006 Guinness Book of World Records, and the newest Ripley's book (Planet Eccentric!). :P

Note: LJ MMORPG blogquiz, by Stephanie.

Got these questions from this QuestionClub LJ post by Arthurbulla. I'm going to post the survey in 50-question batches, like the original. No worries there! Five thousand questions and answers wouldn't fit as an entry, anyhow. :P

The only complete copy... you'll have to go around erasing answers.

1101. Was 2001 a good year for you? It was okay.

1102. Was 2002 a good year for you? I guess so...

1103. What did you look forward to in 2003? It's almost 2006, but I do remember looking forward to some nebulous trip that John was going to take. Yeah right! :P

1104. Did you know that by 2010, they expect to market a gene therapy procedure that will increase our lifespan by double or triple? Uh, no... that's interesting!

If this happened, would you have it done? Probably not.

1105. Would you rather die tomorrow, or have all your friends die? ME!

1106. I would do anything for love, but I won't do "that." What is "that?" Some weirdly perverted sexual act, I'm guessing... nice Meat Loaf reference!

1107. Have you ever drank the stars and counted some water? Haha, no.

1113. Why do guys have nipples if they will never need to feed a baby? Here's your answer. Basically, all fetuses start off androgynous.

1114. Should there be a test before you are allowed to make a baby? Yes. This Canadian girl that Corey talks to would definitely fail... "Oh, trust me... babies aren't expensive! Besides, I can get $80 from the government and my boyfriend has a job!" Aiyoh. *rolleyes*

1124. Have you ever given away something you made? Yeah, like homemade birthday cards and stuff.

1126. What gets your adrenaline pumping? Seeing my friends do well, hockey games, fight-or-flight situations...

1127. Is hell all fire and brimstone, or is it personal for everyone like in Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey? Bring on the fire and brimstone, baby.

Or does it not exist? Oh, it exists all right.

1128. Do you ever talk about yourself in the third person? Heh, I like confusing my friends sometimes with that.

1141. What are you on about? Right now, I'm talking to Corey about Denver / Fort Collins... and walking / driving times from there. Highly hypothetical visits rule, yo! ;)

1142. Has your diary ever been rated? Um... no.

1143. Do you kiss on the first date? No.

Strongly Cautioned. Some material in your journal may be inappropriate to younger or close-minded people. This signifies that your journal is probably inappropriate for pre-teens. People should be especially careful about adding you because they could possibly be offended. Rough or persistent violent talk is absent; sexually-oriented nudity is generally absent; some talk of drug use may be present from time to time in your journal. You may find a fair amount of sex talk here.

Your serial killer name would be Diablo! You would
be a mastermind in what you do. You would come
up with perfect plans on how to do your bad
stuff, and send out your minions to do it for
you. That would prevent you from getting
caught, because for one reason, they would not
rat you out. Your real name might not be known
and you would be greatly wanted, because as
long as you're out on the hidden streets, there
will still be danger! You're the big guy / girl!

A portrait of William Shakespeare drawn after his death
Your historical dream date is William Shakespeare,
although no one is quite sure who "Shakespeare"
really is..... This man of mystery has a way
with words and would immortalize you with his
pen. Unfortunately, he also likes to give his
children strange names (Hamnet, anyone?)... and
would probably only allow you the second-best
bed in the house. You can look forward to a
comfortable manor in Stratford-upon-Avon, and
some very good theatre tickets.

Katherine Hepburn
Your classic beauty icon is Katherine Hepburn, a
movie star known for her independent spirit and
intellect. Katherine wore pants before they
were in fashion for women, and took challenging
roles on screen rather than simply playing the
ingénue. Her make-up was minimal and her style
was crisp, clean and functional, showcasing her
talents and her determined personality.

Benevolent King
Your leadership style is very democratic, and you
are most concerned with the idea of compromise. You
abhor violence and disunity, and try to bring a
diversity of people together. While this
technique can have good results and prevent
much bloodshed, your compromises may actually
leave everyone dissatisfied... and bring you
unpopularity and rebellions. You can succeed
with this leadership style if you happen to
rule during a fairly uneventful time... but in
times of conflict, you may need to take a less
idealistic approach and get your hands dirty.

Whether your style of humor is gross-out comedy
or the most elevated satire, you like to see
the absurd side of life. You are probably
well-liked because you don't take yourself too
seriously. Of course, people may also think
you're a buffoon, especially if you've modelled
your life on Adam Sandler. You could have
the makings of a comic legend - or some poor
kid's annoying uncle. Avoid pulling quarters
from behind children's ears and Hawaiian print
shirts at all costs. You have a habit of
getting naked at inappropriate times.
