So I already failed posting about something that makes me happy. Ah well.

Day Two in things that make me happy:
I like my uni and people in it. Just in general.
As for fannish stuff, I really like good (fan) art. I recently finished a Jeeves and Wooster book and I just had to check if Rule 34 is true. LOL, it is, Jeeves/Wooster fanart exists XD. Also, it's all cute and fluffy fanart, haha. In case you didn't know, these books are about a clueless British gent and his genius butler. Here's a very awesome fanartist who did this, this and this. She also did this pretty cool tired!House and coffeeproviding!Wilson fanart and this very swirly Samurai Champloo fanart. All art is worksafe.

Also, I have cracked. I'm going to watch Merlin even though I'm generally suspicious of Arthurian adaptations and even though the advertising gave me a BBC Robin Hood vibe (Robin Hood sucks). But, well, I can be pretty shallow and the actors are kind of hot. Also, people say it has some gay vibes? I'm down with that. Fanart that finally made me decide: this and (don't click this if you're at work and can't handle blood and homoeroticism) this. Ninjas of Camelot made me lol.

A. People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blog and replace any question that they dislike with a new, original question. B. Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

More than 21 questions because I also did Kim's questions.

01. What are your nicknames?
Saar, Saartje. Oh, and Stuud (Dutch word for girl nerd)

02. How do you style your hair?
Fairly long, in a braid or a plain chignon. My hair's too curly for a ponytail, and I'm to comfort addicted to bother with loose hair when it's not a special occasion.

03. Do you have any phobias?
Moths frighten me. I hate mosquitoes. And I'm scared of tripping on the stairs and smashing my teeth on the floor. Yeah.

03. What's new in your life right now?
Nothing really. Everything just started to calm down.

04. How many colours are you wearing now?
Two. Dark denim and green.

05. Are you an introvert or extrovert?
Mostly introvert. I can get along with people but I can't deal with people around me all the time.

06. What are you doing while filling out this meme?
Worrying about my exam on friday, downloading tv shows for the holidays.

06. What was the last book you read?
The Farthest Shore by Ursula LeGuin. She's a wonderful writer with a beautiful style and I love her themes. Also, as far as crown princes go, Arren>>>>Rhaegar.

07. Do you nap a lot?
No. I'm jealous of my dad, he naps all the time. I just can't.

08. What music do you enjoy listening to?
Everything, really. I love classical music and rock and pop and I tend to like everything the least bit catchy. Oh, current music addiction is still the Manic Street Preachers. Smart Brit Rock, ftw.

08. Who is one person you wish you could be more like?
Hrrm. My uncle Siavash who now lives in Canada. The smartest, kindest, friendliest person I know. He truly cares about people and about freedom and equality, that's why he joined the Student Revolution. The fact that he's such a well adjusted person even though the regime put him in jail for five years when he was 18 is amazing. Also, he's a computer programmer who travels around the world. Also, he's good with computers.

09. Is there anything that has made you unhappy these days?
Racial intolerance? Always a issue for me.

10. What's your favorite dessert?
Italian iceeee. In 50 different flavours, you gotta love that.

11. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
Half an hour. I don't really like to fuss around. An hour if I'm washing my hair *sigh*

11. If you had to get new pet tomorrow, what kind of pet would you choose?
A rat. They're so cute. Dogs are too big for me, even though I like them.

12. What websites do you visit daily?
LiveJournal, the ASOIAF board, fandom_wank and email. I try to stay away from TVTropes. That place just sucks you in.

12. What are your favorite forms of physical exercise?

13. Do you ever think about the race of the people on your flist (who you've never met in real life)?

13. Are you a writer?
No. I wish I could write well.

14. Do you like to clean?
Yes, actually. Just not my room. >_>

15. What's the last song that got stuck in your head?
All those Christmas songs they keep playing on the radio. :(

16. What's the last movie you watched?
Hou Holland Schoon. "Keep Holland Clean", it's about a boy with a black friend and a skinhead brother. Sadness ensues.

17. Have you ever done anything not many people have?
Duh, I play the viola :P And I suppose some other things too.

18. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

18. What is your least favorite thing to do that you have to do everyday?
Getting out of bed after I woke up. My bed is so warm and comfortable and aargh

19. Best time of your life?
Holidays with my parents and little brother. When family visits. Second and third year of secondary school.

20. What are you most looking forward to in the coming month?
Holidays. Jesus, I haven't had a proper holiday since summer vacation. I wants.

21. Who do you tag?

You're a Samurai Champloo fan? Awesome.

I love that pic. Anything with shirtless!Jin is a good thing.

I think I've seen like one episode (because of that fanart XD). I'm going to watch more, when I have more time. That would be after my exam.

You should definitely watch the entire series. There's only 26 episodes.

So very, very true! (Although that books always makes me sad. I know there's life after magic for Ged (Tehanu and beyond), but, dammit, I love young!hotshot!Ged and I'm so sad to see him grow up and, well, die.)

11. If you had to get new pet tomorrow, what kind of pet would you choose?
A rat. They're so cute.

That's my answer, too! Rodents FTW! :D
(My brother and his roommates have two rats now. I'm hoping he will be the one to keep them over the holidays so I can come play with them.)

Oh, and speaking of Merlin, have you seen/read this ( (the "Merlin was written by frat boys" fic) -- I've never even watched the show, although I did read [profile] mistful's m15m-style recap of it (, and I thought the fic was absolutely brilliant and hilarious.

XD is right! I went over to that fic just to take a cursory look, and ended up reading it straight through to the end, giggling like mad. It even briefly made me want to watch the show -- briefly, because I generally dislike Arthuriana (although it sounds like that might not be much of an issue with his particular show XP)

Yeah, I generally dislike it too, but this show really looks like they made up some characters and just pasted Arthurian names on it. LOL

Ged is awesome when he's a young hotshot. I also love how he's Arren's mentor. I love how he cares for Arren, knowing that he'll be king. And Arren is just so cool, I love his transformation (The rowan with shallow roots will bear no crown, I loved that, I love all those wise sayings Ursula LeGuin comes up with).

Also, rats are easy to take care off, that's a big plus! :D

It's crazy how much this survey changes as it goes around. This barely resembles the one I took. XD

Dude, now I'M scared of tripping on the stairs and smashing my teeth.

Sorry :(

Having one passable actor does not make a show awesome, Lina! It sucks! :P

(Okay okay, I like some bits, mostly the Sheriff, Will and Djaq. It still sucks, though.)

I love that the Dutch have a word specifically for female nerds. Lol.

Also, are you sure you can't write well? It seems like you would, just from your lj and community participation stuff.

Nah, too scared of tenses, I'd never do that right.
