Freaky accurate meme (rare, I know)

[001] The character decriptions for Stargate: Universe are out. Please do compare it to the earlier ones for Stargate: Atlantis.

For the new show, we have your Head of operations with a (tragic!)past, Mary Sue healer, rich girl with a (super!tragic) past, slacker!geek from broken home, newbieish jock!leader and the Tank.

As one of the commenters pointed feels a lot like Stargate: 90210. And with Gossip Girl, The Hills, Privileged, The OC etc. do we really need ANOTHER one of those?

[002] Haven't looked it up in ages but the friends of friends list is awesome for finding stuff:

For instance, the latest wank on harrydraco which resulted in a poll. I've always thought the point of the community was its fic searches and open policy to any/all H/D questions. Wouldn't say no to tagging though.

Also, I don't know why but I'm surprised when HP fen fall in love with anime. I'm just used to a lot of HP peeps not doing multiple fandoms *shrugs*. Or just being into one fandom (Prince of Tennis, Death Note, Hikaru no Go etc.). I guess with closed canon, peeps are branching out more now.

And lastly, fanart being used for profit on porn websites? Yup.

[003] I just noticed you can now get a comment notification for when someone's lj has been purged o_o

[004] Eoin Colfer will be writing the sixth book for The Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. While most fans will regard Colfer's book as nothing more than fanfiction or almost!canon, I'm still interested in getting a resolution that is not as bleak as book 5 (which is basically, "Rocks fall, everybody dies"). I especially liked the following:

The book will "make no claims for Eoin being Douglas", according to Prior. "It's not Eoin Colfer writing as Douglas Adams [...]It's absolutely about him being himself – Eoin the author, but with the cast of Hitchhiker."

[005] Snagged from bzzinglikeneon - yeah, she posts the most interesting memes XD.

This is the two question Enneagram test and yeah, it's FREAKY TRUE for me. I bolded the bits that I kept nodding to:

Your Enneagram type is NINE (aka "The Mediator")

"I am at peace"

Peacemakers are receptive, good-natured, and supportive. They seek union with others and the world around them.

If you want me to do something, how you ask is important. I especially don't like expectations or pressure.
I like to listen and to be of service, but don't take advantage of this.
Listen until I finish speaking, even though I meander a bit.
Give me time to finish things and make decisions. It's OK to nudge me gently and nonjudgmentally.
Ask me questions to help me get clear.
Tell me when you like how I look. I'm not averse to flattery.
Hug me, show physical affection. It opens me up to my feelings.
I like a good discussion but not a confrontation.
Let me know you like what I've done or said.
Laugh with me and share in my enjoyment of life.

being judged and misunderstood for being placid and/or indecisive
being critical of myself for lacking initiative and discipline
being too sensitive to criticism; taking every raised eyebrow and twitch of the mouth personally
being confused about what I really want
caring too much about what others will think of me
not being listened to or taken seriously

I only just started SG-1, but man, Stargate:90210 sounds TERRIBLE. It's like "Young Stargate" that that guy suggested in the 200th episode.

I was number nine as well!!!! <3!!

I want the day off too. stupid work D: D:
I must've missed the wank? All I could see from your link was comments supporting fic searches and one against. The poll does seem rather extreme. An agreed short header and everything under an LJ cut would work best, and delete those who do not tow the line, IMO.
As much as the fanart-for-profit thing sucks, I've checked out the comments, and now I can only hope these people aren't really serious about contacting WB to help them protect their HP porn...
Oh wow, that's so exciting about Hitchhiker's (assuming it turns out to be good), because, yeah, the 5th book was way too depressing. When I reread the series I sort of start slacking off after the 3rd book and never quite reach the 5th.
Heh. I thought the Hitchhiker's Guide ending was awsome. XD; And really, the later books were so much worse than the first ones that by the time I got there I just wanted it all to be over.
