A meme and more...  
Another meme, this time swiped from amazonqueenkate.

1. My username is ___ because ___.
2. My journal is titled ____ because ____.
3. My subtitle is ____ because ____.
4. My friends page is called ____ because ____.
5. My default userpic is ____ because ____.

1. My username is seftiri because about ten years ago I had a very vivid dream where my best friend and I were inside a glittering glass pyramid. We were not a part of the group inside the pyramid. They were somehow wrong or off in some way. They were roasting meat taken from female sacrifices and they offered some to me, but I refused. My best friend and I could speak telepathically and we spoke in a language that was comprised entirely of musical emotional resonance. I told her, via the language, to refuse any offers of food and she did. Then I was branded a troublemaker. A small, dark man in regal robes began to taunt and belittle me. I became enraged and he gave me a wooden sword to fight with him. I, of course, was losing. He had a steel sword and my wooden sword was good for nothing. Then I was overcome with a feeling of peace and incredible power. It was as if the musical emotional resonance language had enveloped me. I shouted the words "Seftiri Amahit!" and my sword became the most beautiful silver sword with a gold hilt and I drove it through the heart of the dark man. As he died, I became aware that I had killed the evil within myself. Since that dream, I have used the name 'seftiri' as my username for a lot of things, hoping that one day I will find out its meaning. It sounds Egyptian to me and the dream had definite Egyptian overtones, but I'd like to know what it means. :)

2. My journal is titled DiNovia Drones on at the Limer Lounge because I originally started my LJ as a place to post drabbles and bitty bits of stories I was working on while I was recuperating from surgery. It was just called DiNovia Drones On... at that time, which was a reference to Seven of Nine. DiNovia is my fanfic author name and is the bastardization of the Italian for "Of Nine". Drone of course refers to Seven's Borg nature. I added "at the Limer Lounge" when it bacame clear to me that I was head over heels for Diane Neal and had become a C/O junkie. :)

3. My subtitle is "hey, you feel like a cup of coffee?" "every second of every day" because that is the last exchange between Casey and Olivia before Milan Zergin beat Casey half to death in the episode "Night".

4. My friends page view is titled The Limerie because that's what you call a group of Limers and most of the people who have friended me did so because they like Diane Neal too. :)

5. My default userpic is a pic of Casey Novak with the words "Limer by the grace of God" because it was the first icon I made for myself with the word "Limer" on it. :) And, well, yeah. You were expecting? ;)

As for my days of late. Well, I'm sick. I've been battling a migraine since my birthday as you all know and now I have the flu. I've been basically dead in the water for a few days, with fever, etc. Spacey head is the worst because I can't get anything done. And it's coming back now...

I did have a weird illness dream that somehow involved Casey Novak and the word aneuritic but I'm not sure how, exactly. Those are the only two things I remember.

Yeah, I'm losing cohesion. Sorry I haven't been more productive, guys. This flu should be called Dead Man Walking flu because once the spacey fever feeling returns, you can only sit and stare at nothing.

Hopefully, I'll be feeling better soon and can get some C/O work done.

I have four stories in the works now. Four. :)

Casey Love to all!

YOU'RE apologizing to US???

Yipes. Your days must be crap. I do not envy your health. *Hugs* For what it's worth, I hope you feel better soon. You're sick way too much. No one deserves that, least of all you.

Aww, ::hugs:: sweetie. Thank you for your well wishes. I am sick too often. I just wish I knew how to fix it...or at least control it more reliably. I'm immune deficient because of the ammount of prednisone I was on. I was on the maximum dosage for over a year and corticosteroids wreak havoc with one's immune system. That's why I catch so many bugs and so quickly. :/

But I will keep working at getting well because giving up is just a little too fatalistic for me. :)

You're very welcome. I got pretty lucky with my health, all things considered. Aside from ADHD medication from ages five to ten, which wreaked all sorts of havoc on me, physical and mental, I've been fairly healthy for most of my life.

Never give up. (Can you tell I'd be a lousy motivational speaker?)

Why is everyone sick?? :(

Feel better, sweetie.
seftiri: DiMar Friend Loveseftiri on December 4th, 2005 04:27 am (UTC)
::snugglehugs:: back. I read your LJ post. Here, have more ::snugglehugs::. The good thing about these? You can't catch the flu from ehugs. ;)

You feel better too. And pronto. :)
Danielle: Casey - Smilingdani_ellie on December 4th, 2005 01:59 pm (UTC)
Yay! No catching the flu!

*snugglehugs back*

I'm working on it. ;)

Aww, hope you get better.

You know, when your lemon mood theme dude is sick, he looks like a lime? Yes, I just recently noticed that. ;]
seftiri: DiMar Friend Loveseftiri on December 4th, 2005 04:28 am (UTC)
Thank you!

And yes, I did notice that. I only wish the entire mood theme was reversed. All the other emotions as limes and being sick as lemons. It would match my review theme so much better. /geekiness

Poor Baby!!! I am so very sorry that you have been feeling so badly, for such a long time!! Hopefully soon the bugs of the flu will grow tired of you and head elsewhere!! Feel better soon, my dear!!! We miss you!!
seftiri: DiMar Friend Loveseftiri on December 4th, 2005 04:31 am (UTC)
I miss everyone too! I want to be writing and squeeing and kvetching like I was before...and yet, the level of concentration required just isn't there...

I tell you what, though. I am darned tired of the "illness nightmares". What is it about having a fever that makes the brain show you wonky "The Ring" type pictures?

I just gotta say I'm proud to be part of that Limerie! And I dunno why, but I've always felt... special... because you friended me before I friended you. ::shrugs:: That makes me infinitely cooler than I really am. :D

I had a funky dream last night too. It had Sara in it; however, it took place like I was back in high school. I'm not sure if it qualifies as a nightmare or not. LOL

BTW, bored, so consider the meme swiped. :D

Feel better babe! ::more hugs::
seftiri: DiMar Friend Loveseftiri on December 4th, 2005 04:35 am (UTC)
Babe, you are way cooler than you think you are! LOL I am so glad to have you as part of the Limerie. :)

You had a dream about Sara? Saratastic Sara or CSI Sara? Either way, I am asquee for you!

I look forward to reading the meme. :)

And ::hugs hugs::!

Tiffany: life excitingpiekid on December 4th, 2005 04:45 am (UTC)
::le sigh:: Saratastic Sara, though you're right, either one is awesome! ::drools::

I have a feeling that you will find the meme to be nothing more than a repeat of stuff you already know... LOL
