My Life According to SG-1

bluewillowtree said she would like to see the meme where one answers questions with the titles from a tv show, posting as "My Life According to name of tv show" done using titles from SG-1. She found the sheer number of available titles daunting. In practice, I wish they'd come up with a wider range of titles, and fewer one word titles (or title parts 1 & 2 episodes).

Describe yourself: Beneath the Surface

How do you feel (right now?): Need (We had veggie soup for dinner. I was full then. I'm not now!)

Describe where you currently live: Homecoming, Off the Grid (I'm not really off the grid, but I am in a rural area. Our plot is 23 acres of field and wood).

If you could go anywhere, where would you go?: The Tomb (I wanted to be an Egyptologist. I want to visit the Valley of the Kings. I'm not morbid.) or Paradise Lost (I always want to be in my childhood summer home in the Adirondacks).

Your favorite form of transportation: Nightwalkers (I like to run or walk, and I'm a night owl)

Your best friend is: Ties That Bind. (My husband. We were friends before we were lovers.)

What's the weather like Frozen

Favourite time of day: Zero Hour (or later. I tend to be up a oh-dark-thirty. As I said, I'm a night owl.)

If your life was a TV show, it would be called: Birthright, Revelations, Family, Learning Curve (all apply. I come from reasonably privileged circumstances, each day brings new things, family is the source of much of my joy, and I try to make my learning curve is ever steeper, not shallower)

What is life to you: Forever in a Day, Affinity, Family Ties

Your fear: Abyss, Fragile Balance, Descent (Is now a good time to tell you about my little problem with heights?)

What is the best advice you have to give: There but for the Grace, Shades of Grey, Show and Tell. (Don't get mad, life is not black and white, share and listen!)

Thought for the day: It's Good to be King (or at least I think it will be, if I ever get there)

How I would like to die: Ascension (Because let's be real! None of us really wants to die do we?)

My soul's present condition: Enigma. Unending (I hope)

My motto: Past and Present (I did train as an archaeologist. I was tempted to say The Devil You Know, because there is a family motto I could use dating from the 1700's on my mother's side - Dakin, Dakin, the devil's in the hemp - but this would not be a devil I know because I've never smoked any of the hemp family!)


ETA: Oh, and btw, one should attempt not to reuse titles if at all possible. I forgot to say that. Ooops!

LOL! What a fun meme.

It was fun, and btw, if you decide you want to do it too, there is an additional instruction, which I forgot to include (I should probably go right away and edit that in) that one should not reuse titles if at all possible.

Way cool. :) I think SG-1 eps works really well for this meme! XD

Well, having 10 years! of titles to chose from really helps. I'm pretty sure that getting something coherent from Star Trek TOS with only 79 episodes would be far more challenging!

That man do love a dog!

Excellent! I enjoyed this very much, especially your "Ascension" answer :)

I'd also like to visit Paradise Lost to drool over Scruffy Jack...

Well, obviously I had to use this icon to reply.

It was a fun meme.

If truth be told, I don't think I'd take well to ascension, for the same reason Daniel didn't. But like everyone else on this planet, I personally am not planning on dying. That only happens to other people!

It is a very, very good icon!

I wouldn't actually want to ascend either, both because I'd be bad at staying out of things and because the concept of eternity kind of scares me...

In mourning or rejoicing, be not far from me.

To Know the Dark

To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is travelled by dark feet and dark wings.

-Wendell Berry


Up in the morning's no for me,
Up in the morning early;
When a' the hills are covered wi' snaw,
I'm sure it's winter fairly.

Visit to the Hermit Ts'ui

Moss covered paths between scarlet peonies,
Pale jade mountains fill your rustic windows.
I envy you, drunk with flowers,
Butterflies swirling in your dreams.

Mistress of high achievement, O lady Truth,
do not let my understanding stumble
across some jagged falsehood.



Every Gaudy colour
Is a bit of truth.

All well defined, and several stinks.
