Stealing memes like it’s 2005

I saw this on inkstone‘s journal and liked the look of it. Tell me what to blog about!

Rules of the meme:

Pick a date below and give me a topic — it can be anything, from fandom related to life related to art related to whatever you want.

They will probably be brief, or not, depending on the subject.

Also, I reserve the right to decline prompts that I don’t feel equipped to meet.

Topics: you can get an idea from my tags/from the stuff I usually ramble about/from things you maybe wish I talked about more but don’t.

You can request multiple topics (as long as they’re on different days — one topic per day!).

        So do a lazy version :)
        All you have to do is use the words, not necessarily the meaning of the words.
        Heck, if you a character reading a book on Ada Lovelace stuck in traffic in Oxford because of roadworks…see where I’m going with this?
