2 Memes for the price of 1!

I just sent off my application to do some voluntary administrative work for an art foundation. Now I'll just have to wait and see if they'll bite.

Carrying on with the movie meme, it's time to discuss my least favorite movie by a favourite actor or actress:

For many years now, Gary Oldman has been my favourite actor, simply because I think he's one of the best and most versatile. He can be a good guy or a baddie, a romantic lead or a scene-stealing support actor; he can be handsome, unremarkable or downright ugly; but whatever character he plays, he plays it with such conviction and aplomb that he is always believable. I particularly like his performances in such films as Sid & Nancy, Prick Up Your Ears, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Romeo Is Bleeding, Léon, Bram Stoker's Dracula and Immortal Beloved; but also in the smaller parts he played in Air Force One and The Contender. I didn't take an interest in the Harry Potter-films until I heard he was in it (and went to see it in Times Square with calove, as we happened to be in New York at the time). But there's one film that even his involvement couldn't save, IMO, and that's Lost In Space. Though I think it may just have been my general lack of interest in sci-fi movies that upon viewing it, left me with a distinct feeling of 'mwah'; as Gary's acting in it -as usual- leaves nothing to be desired.

What's another meme between friends? In the colour meme, enigmaticblues gave me...RED:

Comment and I'll give you a color that I think represents you, and then you list ten things you like in that color! (No need to comment just to get a color...if you don't want one, just say so!)

Funnily enough, there's very little red in my immediate surroundings. Although generally, I like the colour in small doses, and for emphasis, when I think about it, I suppose I also find it rather overpowering. For instance, when I find people have painted their dining room walls that colour. So I've looked, but except for two pairs of shoes, there are no favourite things I own that are red, and that means I really had to put my thinking cap on to come up with a small list of things that I like that are red.

01. Autumn leaves
02. Routemaster busses
03. Red shoes
04. Poppies
05. Strawberries and red berries
06. Foxes and squirrels
07. Sunsets
08. Hair colour
09. Ladybirds
10. Erm...pizza?

I like your list. Oddly enough, I had to work to find 10 things in blue for my list, even though I love the color.

It's clear why anyone would give you blue for a colour (your user name being a dead giveaway), but...I'd be quite interested to learn how you arrived at red to represent me? Do I strike you as that dangerous/angry?

Not dangerous or angry at all. Passionate, though. To be quite honest, orange was my first thought, but I could have sworn I've done this meme before and that I gave you orange.

I think you may be right; there was something slightly familiar about this meme!

And perhaps I should have thought more of vermillion rather than of fire engine red in trying to compose my list -- of all possible reds I think it does come closest to my makeup (you're right, I do identify most with oranges and yellows, but that would have been too easy!).

Ok--I'll bite! Awaiting a color...

Interesting what you say about red. I've just started using it more in decorating the last year or so...but a deeper red, not scarlet. And not on walls--yet

Keeping fingers crossed for success with your apps, whether for volunteer work or no.

I suppose I could just blurt out a colour and be done with it, but the meme quite clearly says "a colour that I think represents you"...

...and you may or may not agree with me, but I think a colour like celadon or sea green would suit you very well...sea green perhaps slightly more so, so SEA GREEN it is!
