I just had to do this, seeing as how so many on my flist are doing it! I left answers on [ profile] ithildyn, [ profile] winks7985 and [ profile] strangevisitor7's pages, and you can leave yours here, I'd love to know more about you:

Hey Flist!
Some of you I know extremely well (you know who you are), but others I know very little about. But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so... she likes office supplies." I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. (Yes, even you people who I know really well.) Then post this in your own journal. In return, ask me anything you'd like to know about me and I'll give you an answer.

This is so very true - the first time I feel one of these online things was accurate in evaluating me! It's a strange feeling.

You Are An ISFJ
The Nurturer

You have a strong need to belong, and you very loyal.
A good listener, you excel at helping others in practical ways.
In your spare time, you enjoy engaging your senses through art, cooking, and music.
You find it easy to be devoted to one person... a partner who you do special things for.

In love, you express your emotions through actions.
Taking care of someone is how you love them. And you do it well!

At work, you do well in a structured environment. You complete tasks well and on time.
You would make a good interior designer, chef, or child psychologist.

How you see yourself: Competent, dependable, and detail oriented

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Boring, dominant, and stuck in a rut

I got this from [ profile] tamrinm

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well. We all can make stuff!

Oh I have to do this! I think I first saw it on [ profile] kayim's LJ, and now [ profile] dixid posted it. Not surprisingly, most of my faves are canceled shows! :(

Here we go (with pictures):

Name your top six TV shows right now, before reading the questions.

1. Magnificent Seven
2. The Invisible Man
3. Prey
4. Homicide: Life on the Streets
5. Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles
6. Eureka

The shows... )

At first I was just going to answer the questions in [ profile] conjured_1 s journal, but I though, what the heck, I'll post them here.  So, with the caveat that I might not be able to ask you questions right away (or have any smart questions to ask):

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by asking you 5 questions.
3. You should then update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You should include this and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed you should ask them 5 questions.

Answers for [ profile] conjured_1 :

1. Who is your favorite painter? If not one, give me three.
  • Even though I spent a lot of time drawing when I was younger, and had planned to go to art school, I didn't really learn all that much about artists and history of art to know.  The war broke out just as I started secondary school, which pretty much dashed all my aspirations.  I guess I could say that I like Leonardo da Vinci the most, because of his ability do draw the world around him in such detail.  

2. Favorite comfort food? Recipe?
  • Mmmm!  Fried green bell peppers (which we call paprikas), and you make them like this:
    • First, you bake the peppers in an oven, or better yet, on a plate, turning them over so they don't burn, until you can peel their skin easily. 
    • Then you put them in a frying pan, either chopped up or whole, add some oil, salt and various spices, and fry them. 
    • Just before they're done, you can add some sour cream, but they're delicious either way.  It's eaten using your fingers, like most dishes in Bosnian cuisine are.  My mom bakes fabulous bread, and there's nothing better than dipping some warm bread into hot fried peppers and licking your fingers clean!  Are you hungry? ;)
3. Look behind you. What's the first thing that grabs your attention? Describe it.
  • It's a model of a horse, white (Clyde), standing next to another one, chestnut, I suppose (Chaucer).  Still no Peso in sight, dang it!
4. Who's your favorite actor?
  • Christian Bale.  He's a master of his trade, the same way that his character in the movie Equilibrium, Tetragrammaton Cleric John Preston, is a master of the Gun Kata.  Luff me some gun totin', katana wieldin' Bale!
5. What's the one night time ritual you can't do without?
  • Lately, sharing a warm glass of milk with some honey in it with my aunt before going to bed.  It works wonders for me, as I'm usually not able to fall asleep for hours.  It's also a quiet moment between us, after an exhausting day at work/caring for my uncle.

Ok, so I've been tagged by [personal profile] quietcontrary to do this meme, which is good because I haven't posted anything in two weeks (not surprising since that's how long it's been since my uncle was released from the hospital after his second stroke, and he's not doing well). 

My desktop picture is a photo of Stari Most (The Old Bridge) that I found online.  "The Old Bridge (Stari Most) constructed by the Mimar (architect) Hajruddin, a pupil of the famous architect Sinan (Mimar Sinan), in 1566. It consisted of a humpbacked arch with an opening of 27 metres, and was 4 metres wide and 30 metres long. It stood 20 metres above the Neretva River. Traditionally the local young men of the town used to jump over the bridge to the River Neretva to prove their courage before the wedding ceremony.

Unfortunately, The Old Bridge was totally destroyed in 1993. Through international financial aid managed by the World Bank, UNESCO established an International Committee of Experts to reconstruct The Old Bridge and The Old Town of Mostar. The Bridge reopened on 23 July 2004. In 2005, The Old Bridge and the old Mostar city announced as a part of the World Heritage by UNESCO." (credit)

I try to keep my desktop clutter-free, so I use a neat little program called Object Dock.  I place icons of frequently used programs and folders on the Dock (you can see the shortcut to my Mag7 folder, as well as some of the programs I use often). 

Um, well, let's see, who should I tag?  It should be seven, right?  Here goes:
