LJ Daily Quiz: 17 May 2005 aka ljdq
1. General Zod hailed from which distant world?

2. What device was first applied to the island of Eniwetok on 1 November 1952?

3. What cable television network, founded in part by Geraldine Laybourne and Oprah Winfrey, is on a mission "to bring women... the edgiest, most innovative entertainment on television"?

4. Name that song and artist!
"Sky blue gets dark enough
To see the colors of the city lights
A trail of ruby red and diamond white
Hits her like a sunrise
She's always buzzing just like ..."

5. What is the technical term for the virtual intoxication, sometimes called the "Rapture of the Deep", that divers may experience from breathing compressed air at great depths?

6. What special element are you made out of?

My answers...

1. The White House of Zod mentions Krypton a few times in its many press releases. I would look some more but I have bad knees, so I can't properly kneel before Zod, which is required.

2. That's some kind of anagram for Ewok Net I, so I gather a gigantic electrified rock proof net was deployed and all the rogue ewoks were rounded up there and shipped to zoos for proper display.

3. Oxygen, we're not Lifetime, but we do have the same battered woman freeing herself stories that you've grown to love there.

4. Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem's Animal's Woman Anthem.
Best known for the catchy refrain, 'Woman! Wo-Man! Woman!'

5. In the Abyss, I think they called it Compression Dementia, course they were all miners and military, so what do they know. Steve Zizzou's buddy called it Diving Madness, and I'm much more likely to believe him.

6. We are all made from starstuff.
smack to da head

Don't miss it

One of the things I don't miss about the semester ending and summer is moving. Luckily I'm no longer living in a dorm, so I don't have to move out in the hot Texas sun. Nor do I have to move back in 102 degree August heat as well.

Walked around campus a bit, and met with my GUEST group that I'm a VP of today talking about events for next semester. I want to do a thing at Gina's Kitchen where we all take a class.
Fun ideas for trips and such were bandied around. We came to the conclusion that Brenham's a bit to far for a trip. I'll keep on the lookout for festivals and such in little towns.

Paid for parking for next semester at the church. Nice people at St. Austin's church. Parking is relatively cheap there too, but they are filling up so I had to make sure to get things arranged early.

Doing a bit of planning for my trip as well. I'm going down to Houston this weekend. Luckily my friend Eric is handling most of the boardgame and RPG arrangements, and letting me stay at his place. I'll see Riley for Breakfast Saturday, and hopefully Jessica sometime as well. Eve stuff will be more spontaneous maybe.

Found La Dulce Lecha or something like that again today. Nice gellato ice cream and pastry type stuff on 43rd and Duval. Ate lunch at Julio's there which is a pretty good Mexican joint. The food was quite tasty.

Watched The Contender I had taped today. I like Gomez. Ah well.

I also looked over the specs of the next generation gaming consoles and stuff at E3. Read some misc. news. Looks like I'll probably be sticking with a PS3 when I upgrade.

I had a discussion on what I was looking for with a friend recently, and they narrowed down all my qualifications to 'A Beautiful Mind, and a Caring Heart' which sums it up pretty well I think. My biggest turn off is probably intolerance. I think that goes for friends as well as potential girlfriends. I'm somewhat shy, so I tend to develop a rather small circle of good friends rather than a large circle of more shallow friendships. I'm working on being more sociable, so hopefully things will work out better as I improve.
