One of the blogs I read, My Total Perspective Vortex, just posted about her inner battle with a Name Five Things That Make You Awesome meme. Her words, in turn, have made me try to think of things that make me awesome. Which is harder than I thought it would be, for the simple reason of, I'm just me. Looking at it from the inside, I'm no one special.

And realizing I look at myself that way pissed me off.

So, five things. )

So, friendslist. I challenge you. Give me five reasons why YOU are awesome!

Story meme!

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they’ve printed.
1.) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2.) Italicize those you intend to read.
3.) Underline those you love.
4.) Put an asterisk next to the books you’d rather shove hot pokers in your eyes than read or read again.

Ganked from several people on my flist:

Give me one of my own stories (finished or not), and a time at some point after the end of the story or before the story started, and I'll write you at least 100 words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story begins or ten years in the future.

Go look at your blog journal. Find the last Fandom-related thing you posted. The characters in that post are now your team-mates in the Zombie Apocalypse. How fucked are you?

Hmm. Last thing I posted about fandom was asking who's going to SDCC. SDCC versus the zombies... would be an interesting mental exercise, I think. Not enough shotguns, but OTOH you have a massive group of people who know exactly what to do in that situation. Must ponder.

But the last thing I posted in fandom was Transformers fic. Which goes under "If the Autobots are my teammates in the zombie apocalypse, I think I'm set."

Huh. So, inspired by this post (linked to by Sal), here are five things I like about my body.

(1) I have fabulous hair. It's the color of dark honey, light in weight, almost waist-length, and looks good no matter what.

(2) I have good skin. Not saying I don't get spots once in a while, because I do, but it's smooth and relatively undamaged by solar exposure.

(3) I have strong, muscular calves. It means I have to be more selective about tights and nylons and such, but they're strong and firm and when I have to run from the oncoming zombie apocalypse, I'm golden.

(4) I have attractive features. When I'm not being down on myself, in fact, I tend to think I'm pretty. My smile? It is fabulous. Also, dimples!

(5) I may be overweight, but my body carries my fat proportionately. I look significantly lighter than I am, and when I dress in something form-fitting, I look fantastic.

So, anyone care to join me in listing five things you like about your body?

What would you be in a fantasy novel?
Your Result: Healer

You would be the Healer. The Healer, who by the way is usually a female character, is the peaceful sort who probably can fight, but would rather minister to the injured. She or he tends to be calm and collected. And skilled with herbs.

SO, if you start with Diana Comet's Periodic Table of Women in Science Fiction (PDF) from Sandra McDonald's blog. And then you list them out in no particular order, so you have 110 women that are considered important in the SF field.

NOW, bold the ones you own books of, italicise the women you’ve read something of (short stories count) and star (*) those you've never heard of.

The List )

A. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.

(1) I've only ever successfully played four video games in my life: solitaire, minesweeper, computer Tetris, and Oregon Trails. I have some kind of mental aversion to playing video games, though I'll happily cheer others on.

(2) I attended four elementary schools, three middle schools, one high school, and four colleges (two community, two not) to end up with two baccalaureate degrees.

(3) Despite the fact that I work in the cremation industry, I've never seen a dead human body, and I'm quite happy to keep it that way.

(4) I'm named for my maternal grandfather; his surname was "Kristiansen" and after he emigrated to America, his coworkers called him "Kris." My middle names are, I believe, for two of my great-grandmothers. Other names my parents were considering were "Sierra Mist" or "Sierra Dawn" or, if I'd been a boy, "Bjorn." Both my sister and I are remarkably thankful not to have been a boy for that reason alone. I was actually quite happy with my name until I hit middle school and then suddenly there were half a dozen other girls in my class with the same name. I love that my husband finds my name unique because there apparently aren't many Kristins in the U.K. (And, for the record, he's the only Douglas I know.)

(5) I can and do read roughly a hundred pages an hour.

(6) Every year I try to grow at least one new "exotic" thing in my garden. For example, in 2009 I grew beets and turnips for the first time but my exotic was four luffa plants. In 2008 I did heirloom tomatoes and soybeans for the first time, but my exotic was potatoes. Haven't decided on this year's exotic, but I have a couple contenders lined up, most of them in the solanacae family.

(7) My first memory is of being in my mother's garden among the strawberry plants and being stung by a wasp. My mother swears that I can't possibly remember this event as I was eight months old at the time.

B. Tag seven people.

As for tagging people... whoever wants to can pick this up.
