I know I should finish and post this meme first, but I'm a meme!sheep. (plus, [livejournal.com profile] jem0000000 egged me into it!) I do have like 5.5 of the 7 question sets from that mystery characters meme that I linked to completed though, so I will try to finish it up and get it posted.

---

NOTE: This meme has been heavily edited so I *THINK* it makes a little more sense

ASK A CHARACTER A QUESTION MEME!formally known as: Character Questions Meme)

1. Choose a character from any fandom that I know (even if it's one of my OCs). My *MAIN* fandoms are Ninja Turtles and Kino No Tabi, but I'm not going to limit your fandom/character choices, though. However, if I do not know the character, I may ask you for another choice.

2. Go here and generate 10 random numbers between 1 and 100.

3. Comment with the character and the numbers, and then I will answer the corresponding questions from this list here AS THE CHARACTER! YAYNESS! XD (I will prolly make a new post answering the questions for each character I get)

Feel free to pick a character that someone else already asked about, as the questions will most likely be different this time around.

--

Also, I don't really care if you randomize the question #s or pick them deliberately - it's a long list, so you'll probably save time randomizing, but if you want to know specific answers, go for it!

You can ask about more than one character, but please do a separate comment & number list for each character.

Wow... lots to update, but I'm lazy. :p

A) I had a BLAST in california with [livejournal.com profile] cynlee, [livejournal.com profile] hamatokameko, [livejournal.com profile] brinatello and Christine. However, I have pics for that, so hopefully I will post those later :D


B) Jenn's dad is prolly going to get heart surgery, so Jenn is leaving tomorrow (May 5th) and will be in Utah for THREE WEEKS! D: I am going to miss her SO much!! :(


C) Osama Bin Ladin is DEAD! O_O This quote from Mark Twain sums up my feelings on that quite eloquently "I have never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure." (quote stolen from [livejournal.com profile] neuronautica) hee hee. I hope this clears up all the annoying "birther" nonsense about our president. I SO want Obama to tell the public "Oh, sorry I couldn't get a copy of my birth certificate to you quicker, I was kinda busy tracking down and killing Osama Bin Laden. But next time I'm working on a important matter of national security which my predecessor ignored and you want to quibble with me over schematic details, I'll get right on that." I know he won't, but it would still be EPIC. ;D


D) Jenn & I picked up her xbox while we were in Utah. XD Feel free to add me if you feel so inclined! My Gamertag is "MicaTurtle" :D (Jenn's is "Soliloquy79") Does anyone on my Flist have an xbox? Nyar?
I've been having fun playing some games on the xbox. However, I'm wondering a few things:
1) Is there any cheaper way to buy/earn/get "Microsoft Points"? If you buy thru your xbox, it ends up being like $21.19 for 1600 points (which is roughly 1.4 cents per point, and since a rockband song "costs" 160 points, it's kinda a ripoff :p If I buy the prepaid cards is it a better deal?
2) Does anyone here have an xbox gold membership? Is it worth the price?
3) Does anyone know of any good free downloadable games on the xbox marketplace? Also, is there some secret way to sort by price?

Hi All!
I am wondering if anyone has any answers/thoughts/suggestions regarding this question:

Are there any generic personality types that are NOT covered by the 4 turtles? Every "type" that I've thought up is already covered by a turtle (or in some rare cases, Splinter).

Can anyone help me out here?? Please let me know your ideas!

Thanks!

Hi all,
I've got an idea for fanfic, but I'm terrible at getting things ACTUALLY written. However, I love to edit the sh!+ outta things. So, I was thinking, what if I took one of these random harlequin romance books I get in all the time at work, steal the smex scene, change the character names, and then edit the nyar outta it until it's barely recognizable?

Would that be considered plagiarism? What if I said I did it and actually scanned in the pages I stole from (and linked to the book)? Would that still make it extremely uncouth? Would you read the fic, or would you avoid it and why?

Please vote and tell me in the comments why you voted the way you did. Nyar? Please?
micaturtle: (Nyar?)
Well, for those of you who don't know, I got a Wacom tablet (this one in fact) around a week ago. I have played with it a little bit, and I am HIGHLY disappointed. The thing that really bothers me the most is this: in order to move the mouse around the screen, you need to hover the pen above the tablet surface! As you may or may not know, I have tremors in my hands, and holding the pen like that annoys the nyar outta me! I have searched a little bit, but I have not found a way to change this. *sigh* The other minor thing is, my eye-hand coordination is just not what it used to be. :p

In doing a little more research, I have found that the item I *REALLY* want is this:
A Touchscreen laptop *drools* I played with one of these a few years ago at an anime convention, and that's truly what I thought the wacom tablet would feel like/work like. The problem is, it's $979, and although it WILL go down in price, I will have to wait for a while (like prolly a whole year) until I can pay for it.

The question is, what should I do? Should I return the wacom tablet and save up for the touchscreen laptop? Or should I just keep the tablet and hope I will like it? I just worry if I keep the tablet, it will become a $70 dust catcher, because I will prefer drawing the old fashioned way because of the issues I have with it... hmmm

What do ya'll think I should do??

I'm at it again! I got more interview questions to answer! yay!! This is important because ITS IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHAT GIRAFFES ARE THINKING ABOUT!

01. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
02. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
03. You will post the answers to the questions (and the questions themselves) on your blog or journal.
04. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
05. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions. And so on and so on and so on...

[livejournal.com profile] soliloquy asked me these!:

1: If you could have your dream job - what would you ideally be doing?

VOICE ACTING!! :D or hmm.. I really like what I'm doing right now :) Selling books online for a living. If I could do that, have no boss, and have stable health insurance, that would be nice. But Voice acting would be so much fun! Only problem is, I know I'd never survive in that world. I need structure or my brain doesn't work well *hits head* stupid brain!

2: What was your first exposure to the Ninja Turtles. Who was your favorite character then? If it's a different character than it is now, what caused the change?

My 1st exposure with TMNT was prolly the old toon. I remember I watched 1 episode of it and rolled my eyes at it. (I know, I'm a bad nyar I even remember saying "just when you think they couldn't come up with anything worse than Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, they come out with Biker Mice From Mars" .. bad Mica! .. now I shudder the thought and remember that when I get the urge to bash anyone's fandom)
Then when I was 15 or 16 I believe... I was a huge animatronics freak. I don't remember what movie got me most interested in animatronics, but I was on summer break and in the middle of a depressive bout when I saw the 1st TMNT movie (on VHS). It AMAZED me. I was engrossed. I watched it probably 15+ times that first week. The animatronics in that movie are STILL amazing to me.
I know it sounds silly, but for a short time my fanstasy mind had convinced myself that the turtles were real and were IN that first movie (NO ONE is allowed to comment on this part, leave my fantasy bubble alone!)
I liked Raph, and I liked Mikey. As I watched it more, I gravitated more towards Mike. I don't know why, I just did. Truthfully, if my first exposure hadn't been the movie, I may have become a die-hard Donnie fan. But truthfully, until I saw the second & third movie and read a little bit of the comics, I never knew he was supposed to be the "smart" one. Oh the tides of fate :)

3: Who is your favorite TMNT character to role-play as? (Optional bonus question: What was your favorite role-playing experience ever?)

BuG_eAtAH!... Mica, she said TMNT Char, not OC... oops... hmmm.. I like to RP Mikey, because he can say all the snide comments outside the (( ))s and still be in character. Also, in a fight, he tends to look at the humanistic side of things. Sees people as people and not as enemies. But I enjoy doing Raph too because I can beat on things/people and not NEED a reason :D hmm.... my fave RPing experience? I liked a lot of differnt RPs... most of my faves are making fun of the Drama RPs or over the top. I enjoyed sitting in the rafters and dropping water ballons on people in the chatroom with Mona in #TMNT_MM. I think that one and the infamous "I am April O'Neil, Channel 6 News ala Mojo Jojo" (where I came in and stated my name and occupation annoyingly and repeatitively until kicked out) RPs were my faves.


4: What was the most amusing or frustrating (your choice) experience of your life so far, and what did you learn from it?

DAMN... I dont wanna answer that one! :p Ok... hmm... IN MY WHOLE LIFE? ... argh... I cant say. I DONT WANNA! *whines* Thats an annoying question ... :p The most frustrating RECENT experience in my life is THIS question! So I refuse to answer it! :D Thus, I learned I can be naughty if I want to and not answer your question.

5: What is your favorite smell, tell me about a memory you associate with it?

FAVORITE smell? hmm... I like the smell of Liliac bushes, they remind me of my Grandma Larson because she used to have a row of them in her back yard. I know, boring answer, but it's kinda a blasé question :|

and the evil one! ([livejournal.com profile] mandy_nyar) Asked me THESE strange ?s:

1. Once upon a time there was a king and queen who owned a horse. The horse, Beatrice, disappeared one day and they both looked frantically for him. The horse was never found and the kingdom eventually fell to ruin. So do you think the horse ended up being captured and sold to a glue factory or did it magically turn into a my little pony and live happily ever after?

I like to think Beatrice magically turned into a My Little Pony, but one that doesnt have any powers (like amber) so she's still unhappy with her lot in life (about the glue.. As much as I enjoy arsenic lullaby, I try not to think like them, it's too depressing to believe the world is that mean and stupid)

2. Which is more evil: a marker or a pen?

A Marker!! A marker is not only harder to get out or whiteout over, it sometimes bleeds onto the next page! AAAAHHHH!! THAT'S why a marker is eviller!! ;) .. but they DO smell good...

3. If Giraffes could talk, what would they say?

They would say "HEY! WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT? STOP LOOKING AT MY NECK DAMNIT! .... OOoooOOooOOohh! Leaves! Yum yum yum! I wish I could eat mashed potatoes instead, but I like leaves. ooh! look! Leaves! .. HEY! Stop Looking at me man! I dont like it when you look at my neck!!" .. and so on and so forth. so YAY! now you know what giraffes are thinking! :D

4. If cheese didn't exist; what would the world be like?

That is a moot point, for without cheese, there would be no world. ;)

5. Are stores inadvertently destroying the world because they only want to give you a discount with a coupon?

No, they are destroying the world on purpose by doing that

[livejournal.com profile] paulafrom2son asked me! NYAR!

1) Invisibility, mind reading, ability to fly: which super power would you choose?

Ability to fly. I've read enough MySpace pages to know that I don't CARE what ppl are thinking ;) and invisibility would only be fun for so long... but to fly! yay! it would be fun!

2) What's your favorite food?

Pizza. Although [livejournal.com profile] mandy_nyar and I have had this disscussion before, I don't think I could eat it for EVERY meal. She says that will cause me and Mikey to eventually break up. ("What do you mean you're tired of pizza!?!?! Blasphamy!")

3) What's your favorite decade of the 1900's?

umm.. hmmm.. I really dont have a preference, but I liked the 1990s, because it was all about shiney things, and ppl were uber-into saving the envoirnment.

4) Person you'd most like to meet?

Umm... Cam Clarke? Sam Regal? [livejournal.com profile] amandatello? Dan Berger? People always ask this, and it kinda annoys me. If I REALLY had someone I *REALLY* wanted to meet, I'd find a way. I'm stalkerish that way ;)

5) Ideally, what will your life be like ten years from now?

Hopefully doing this same job, selling books, and my salary will increase :) NYAR! either that or in Japan teaching english! :)

NYAR!! NE1 out there wanna be interviewed?
