pieces of me… flickr style!

The flickr mosaic meme: (filched from cleo)

01. Answer each of the questions below the cut using the [Flickr] search engine. (ETA: I’ve changed the URL so it will automatically search “Most Interesting” for you.)
02. Choose a photo from the first three pages.
03. Copy the URL of your favorite photos [here].
04. Then share with the world.

01. First Name: Gricel. Kind of hard to find, so I searched for “graceful”. I love that this image is all green and serene.

02. Favorite Food: Cold sesame noodles. I love noodles in general, but these are a special treat.

03. Hometown: Miami, FL. What does this poor bedraggled bird have to do with Miami… absolutely nothing! But it came up in the search and I thought it was fantastic.

04. Favorite Color: Purple. I love purple, it’s such a rich, ostentatious color.

05. Celebrity Crush: Kate Winslet is my celebrity girlcrush. Why not a male crush? Because I don’t particularly admire any male celebs :/

06. Favorite Drink: tea. It’s what makes you British when you’re not πŸ˜›

07. Dream Holiday: Edinburgh, Scotland. I spent a day there during the Great British Adventure of ’05 and can’t wait to go back.

08. Favorite Dessert: Pumpkin Pie. Like the sesame noodles, I eat it so rarely that it’s extra special to me.

09. What I Want To Be When I Grow Up: I want to a) be surrounded by books, b) write.

10. What I Love Most In The World: I can’t say exactly, but I love reading in the sun on a lazy day.

11. One Word That Describes Me: Bookish. Well, I am.

12. My LiveJournal Name: _acciobrain. From the scene in the Department of Mysteries when Ron says, “Accio Brain!” so Weasly cakes were apropos.

1. Meeting the pregnant princess of the forest, 2. Cold Sesame Noodles, 3. Are you friend or foe?, 4. he loves me/he loves me not., 5. Metamorphosis, 6. coffee & the city, 7. Victoria Street, Edinburgh, 8. early Thanksgiving, 9. bookshelf spectrum, revisited, 10. 366/16 Saturday morning sun, 11. heaven on earth, 12. Weasley cakes!

berries and sillies

berries 1Though I like the look of strawberries, I’m not much of a fan of the actual fruit. Mostly because I tend to have very bad luck when it comes to picking strawberries, so I usually end up with a really sour batch. Not so, today! These may be the best strawberries I have ever had (which makes me wonder just how modified they may be… best not think about that).

And onto other silly things… Didymus has found a new bed. My grandmother’s nightgown. He attacks anyone who dares take it away from him, but he behaved very nicely while I photographed him… He’s a bit of a cam tart.
