From [livejournal.com profile] goldjadeocean 

One little compliment can make you feel amazing. So give me a compliment, anything in the entire world, even that my shoelaces are pretty. Put this in your journal. And once you get some comments, put that entry in a memory or tag and when you are feeling down, just go to that entry and this will remind you how great you are.

Comments are going to be screened so none of you will know if I'm the über-popular kind who gets over 100 comments on this or a total loser who doesn't get any.

I am SO TIRED. Which is why you're not getting any real posts today. Instead, I give you this:



If they told you I'm mad, then they lied.
I'm odd, but it isn't compulsive.
I'm the triolet, bursting with pride;
If they told you I'm mad, then they lied.
No, it isn't obsessive. Now hide
All the spoons or I might get convulsive.
If they told you I'm mad then they lied.
I'm odd, but it isn't compulsive.
What Poetry Form Are You?


Also, it would seem the director of Under the Raven's Wing commented on my lesbian film list post to give me details about it. Uh, wut? How did she even find my blog in the first place, and don't directors have better things to do than comb the internet and comment on posts that barely mention the movie? 

Weird.

Your result for The Six Wives of Henry VIII Test...

Anne Boleyn

Witty, Sophisticated, Passionate, Emotional, Stylish, Intelligent, Outspoken.

"The Most Happy"



Anne Boleyn is one of the most infamous women in history. She is also probably one of the most misunderstood. Many myths abound, including that she had a mole on her neck, and a sixth finger. This is highly unlikely, as such things were seen as signs of witchcraft, she probably would not even have been allowed in court, let alone be chosen by Henry as a mate- he desired a male heir above all else, and would never have risked a 'bewitched' son.


Anne was the second, possibly third, Boleyn woman to pass through Henry's chambers. Her mother was rumored to have been young Henry's mistress, and her sister Mary was without doubt. As their father, Thomas Boleyn, was a man with more ambition than honor, he engineered both daughters relationships with Henry, and probably did the same with his wife. But Mary Boleyn's relationship with Henry ended with an illegitimate son (probably Henry's), a sad marriage, and the nickname, "the Great Whore".


Anne was engaged to Henry Percy and had no ambitions to join in the family's power games. But as a lady in waiting to Katharine of Aragon, Anne caught Henry's eye, and Henry, had Henry Percy banished from court. Thomas Boleyn missed nothing, and set Anne to seducing Henry.


Anne was charming, witty, sophisticated, and talented in music and dance- all things Henry liked in a woman. She had no trouble bringing Henry to his knees- she knew what he wanted became all the sweeter to him when he couldn't have it. She demanded he seduce her with letters and poems, he sent her royal jewels, and she rebuffed him, refusing to give him her virginity outside of marriage.


Sometime during her father's scheming Anne fell in love with Henry. They resided together in the castle, held court with her in Katharine's throne. He granted her noble title. Finally, after being refused an anullment, Henry divorced Katharine. Henry was excommunicated from the Holy See- the beginning of Restoration.


Anne and Henry wed in 1533, and Anne gave birth so soon to the infant Elizabeth I, it's believed that the two had been secretly married in 1532 in order to consumate their union.


The marriage lasted three years. Anne failed to deliver the promised heir, which Henry saw as a sign from God that his marriage to Anne was impure. His eye was wandering, particularly to Jane Seymour, and Anne, ever so passionate, would not tolerate any straying from her bed. If she had taken the king from Katharine, who had been with him for decades, then her position was just as precarious. She had gotten Henry to declare Elizabeth the one heir by bastardizing Mary, daughter of Katharine, but no one outside of England recognized the child as sovereign heir, refusing Henry's offers of betrothal. That Anne requested the deaths of Mary and Katharine is rumored but not evidenced.


Following the death of Katharine, who had suffered in isolation, Henry became more convinced that Anne was a mistake. She miscarried a few days later, and it was over.


Henry accused Anne of witchcraft, questioned her virginity at the time of marriage, and high treason- adultery. The men of her court were questioned and tortured, the women of her court were largely disloyal- many of them having been in service to the beloved Katharine of Aragon before her- and gladly spoke against her. Anne was imprisoned, and there wrote letters to Henry begging for the freedom of her innocent friends and family (her brother was accused of having relations with her.) and begging for the future of her daughter. It was all for naught- her accused lovers were tortued into admission- even though some of them were quite homosexual- and murdered. Elizabeth was declared illegitimate. Anne saw the beheading of her brother George, her best friend, and probably also homosexual, through the bars of her tower window.


Anne Boleyn was executed May 19, 1536. Laying her head on the chopping block, she repeatedly commended her soul to God, and then, the scandal of christendom, the woman who caused the birth of a new religion, the second wife of Henry VIII, was beheaded.


Henry married Jane Seymour eleven days later.

Six Degrees of Hitler Meme, stolen from [profile] ironychan:

Click "Random Article" on Wikipedia's main page and by only navigating via hyperlinks in whatever articles you may venture through, make your way to Adolf's article. Then post how many clicks it took you to get there. Try to avoid the 'easy' route of clicking on country names.

1. Alcarràs
2. Municipality
3. Political Science
4. Roman Republic
5. Jewish-Roman Wars
6. Jews
7. Adolf Hitler

Ok, it took a little more than six, but that's mostly because I didn't want to copy [livejournal.com profile] ironychan and do it through political parties or be lame and do it by country.

Your past life diagnosis:
I don't know how you feel about it, but you were female in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern Romania around the year 1675. Your profession was that of a leader, major or captain.
Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
Timid, constrained, quiet person. You had creative talents, which waited until this life to be liberated. Sometimes your environment considered you strange.
The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
It always seemed to you that your perceptions of the world are somewhat different. Your lesson is to trust your intuition as your best guide in your present life.
Do you remember now?

Now I tag:

Today I went to a picnic with a few of Jasper's friends. Who are now also my friends. Well, Phil is, at least :D We ate a LOT, played cards, took many, many pictures (well, I didn't, but since everyone else did I figured there was no point), and, best of all, played tag. AND I WON! Even though I was wearing the most brightly coloured clothes and I can't run very fast, very far or for very long. Maybe all those sprints for the bus are doing me good o.O

Jasper and I randomly burst out in dancing though. And either I can't lead the Charleston to save my life, or Jasper sucks at following. We were recorded. We also got into like, five tickle fights and everyone else sat around watching, taking pictures and going "Awwww! They're so cute!"

Then we left, Phil gave me a ride home which was made of awesome because it was raining and cold out. My mom had made a big chicken for dinner, along with potatoes and veggies and stuff. Jo complained about lack of wine, so after we all had some rum. Jo mixed it with coke while mom and I had it with guava juice. I like guava juice, but I don't think I like it much with rum. I do like rum though. Anyway, I drank it pretty fast and now I'm happy :) I'm such a cheap date -_-*

While we were eating mom randomly asked my brother if he'd been to the strippers yet and he said no. I told him I was probably going next week and that he could come and he still said no. He also said it wasn't just that he didn't want to go with me, he just doesn't want to go at all. And I've already asked his girlfriend if I could take him out and she said yes, so maybe he's just a straight guy who doesn't like strippers?

I'm actually not really 100% sold on the idea of the drunken stripper-fest just because I don't really like large crowds of people I don't know in an unfamiliar location. Especially if everyone's drunk. I'll probably end up going anyway, though. I didn't think I'd have that good a time at the picnic, but I had a blast. We'll see. Plus everyone talked about going to the zoo and going rollerskating, so clearly these are my people.

nifty

The Everything Test

There are many different types of tests on the internet today. Personality tests, purity tests, stereotype tests, political tests. But now, there is one test to rule them all.

Traditionally, online tests would ask certain questions about your musical tastes or clothing for a stereotype, your experiences for a purity test, or deep questions for a personality test.We're turning that upside down - all the questions affect all the results, and we've got some innovative results too! Enjoy :-)

Personality
You are more emotional than logical, more concerned about self than concerned about others, more atheist than religious, more dependent than loner, more lazy than workaholic, more traditional than rebel, more artistic mind than engineering mind, more cynical than idealist, more leader than follower, and more extroverted than introverted.

As for specific personality traits, you are romantic (71%), greedy (55%).

Stereotypes
College Student88%
Young Professional88%
Hippie83%
 
Life Experience
Sex25%
Substances3%
Travel14%

Politics
Your political views would best be described as Socialist, whom you agree with around 83% of the time.
  Socioeconomic
Your attitude toward life best associates you with Upper Middle Class. You make more than 0% of those who have taken this test, and 87% less than the U.S. average.

If your life was a movie, it would be rated PG.
By the way, your hottness rank is 71%, hotter than 96% of other test takers.

Tired *yawns*
First day of school went Ok. I don't like Mondays, though. My first class starts at ten am, my last class ends at nine thirty. Blah. And half of my religion lecture yesterday was disclaimer: "you can be whatever religion you want, but we're not here to talk about what God says, we're here to study an ancient text (the bible)." Well, duh.
The outline for my Renessance history class is totally screwy.
I also found out the school has a meditation room.
Oh, and there're posters all over the place of two guys kissing, advertising the GLBT club. Why do gay guys make me so cheerful?
I should go get dressed and start doing homework *sigh*


And I don't care if I know you personally, I still want you to fill it out! (That includes you, Janine).

EDIT: Here's a pic of m, although it's kind of old. Just imagine me with chin-length, purple-streaked hair.
