Here's a quiz I took this morning. It was pretty fun and I like the results. I've been feeling more tethered to the earth recently.
Your rainbow is shaded red and brown.


What is says about you: You are a passionate person. You appreciate the roughness of nature. You get bored easily and want friends who will keep up with you. You feel closer to people when you understand their imperfections.

I don't know exactly why, rocks, trees, and my surroundings have kept me quite interested recently. It snowed yesterday and I already want it to be nice outside, I have this drive to go to the park and climb trees.  It could be my new shoes. Dan got me a pair for Valentine's Day and I absolutely love them. Since I am at home most of my days I do run around barefoot quite often. These shoes are the next best thing! I know they look silly but they feel wonderful on your foot. I wore them to the gym yesterday and it was so much more pleasant than wearing my athletic shoes!

Neverwhere is certainly of my favorite books. Neil Gaiman may very well be my favorite author. The thing I love about his writing style is that the pictures in my head become extremely well formed. I see the characters and locations clearly when reading his books, which leads me to want to see them in cinematic form.  Probably my visions of what could be as a film, would be smashed and ruined forever if the books actually became films. I can't speak for Stardust I haven't read the book. Sometimes I run across people or places and I say "Ah Ha!" that would be perfect for_______. I had one of those realizations today. There is much talk on fan boards who would play who and what not for Neverwhere. There is a character in the book Angel Islington, who is very androgynous. Which really an angel should be right? Many have said that Tilda Swinton would make a good Islington but for me I wanted a bit more masculinity and I don't think her voice would do either. I've decided the best person to play the Angel Islington is Brian Molko from the band Placebo.


See perfect! 
Here's my current video obsession and now I really want to see Daybreakers 

I also got the Placebo's album "Battle for the Sun" from the library and I really like it. I realized Placebo has been around for a long time. I've been listening to them since I was in high school!
