Last one was too easy. Let's see if I break a sweat on this one.

10 Days, 10 Prompts
Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.
Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.
Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.
Day Five: Six things you wish you'd never done.
Day Six: Five people who mean a lot (in no order whatsoever)
Day Seven: Four turn offs.
Day Eight: Three turn ons.
Day Nine: Two images that describe your life right now, and why.
Day Ten: One confession.

1. Willful ignorance. And by the way, we have the Internet these days, so there's really no need to be ignorant unless you're doing it on purpose.

2. Droning on without a point or at least occasional punch lines. I like to interact: engage me, and I'll be happy to listen and participate; straight out lecture me (outside of an actual lecture), and you've lost me.

3. Emotional games. Life's too short: if you're angry, tell me, and maybe we can work it out. No passive-aggressiveness, please.

4. A lack of a sense of humor. Best advice I got while I was teaching in Japan was to avoid poison apples: those individuals who are going to have a bad time no matter what and are determined to drag everyone around them down with them. I've gotten pretty good, over the years, at identifying, quarantining, and ultimately dropping people like that.

Next up: a lighter note!

My dear friend and fellow pirate, [livejournal.com profile] therobbergirl, recently shared a meme listing a bunch of movies ("Mark the ones you've seen"; you know how these things go); we agreed that the list seemed pretty random. Here, by contrast is a more arbitrary list: Roger Ebert's List of Great Movies (last updated in 2005).

There are 334 movies on this list, and, since it's Ebert, the list presumably includes films you can't stand and excludes films you thought were the bestest thing ever; one of my favorites, The Princess Bride, for example, didn't make it. Bold the ones you've seen and post your numbers: I've seen 104 of these.

Looong list of movies behind the cut. )
