A goofy meme picked up from [livejournal.com profile] rachel2205. Some of it makes little sense, but it's still funny.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, lemonlye sent to me...
Twelve soundtracks publishing
Eleven stars reading
Ten cosmetics a-skywatching
Nine clouds kissing
Eight linguistics a-cooking
Seven sociolinguistics a-writing
Six geeks a-dabbling
Five pre-e-e-etty boys
Four used bookstores
Three northern lights
Two sparkly earrings
...and a bioluminescence in a david bowie.
Get your own Twelve Days:


And for the many Jewish folk on my list, a very happy Chanukah! I have no particular familial ties to Judaism, but have long had ties of friendship and respect. Also, yesterday I heard a podcast story about Aaron Lansky, the man who rescued and collected 1.5 million books written in Yiddish, and it warmed my linguist/librarian-wanna-be heart. Apparently he has a book about the whole experience.

Must get back to watching old Buffy episodes.

"a bioluminescence in a david bowie" is my favourite, I think! LUMINESCENT BOWIE!

On Bowie, bioluminescence wouldn't even look weird. He could totally wear it and look great doing so.

My goodness, when I tried the generator, it told me:

(This user doesn't have enough friends or interests to fill their song, today...)

What cruel, insensitive software... ;-)

Hehe. Indeed, how rude! Don't see why the "friends" part should matter; it obviously uses the interests list to fill in the meme... *shrug*

It does use the "friends" list as well. For example, it offered me "Four lemonlyes". Very silly - I mean, I barely know what to do with *one* lemonlye. What would I do with four? Keep some as backups in case of a power outage? ;-)
