Happy birthday, handsome! Remind me, I have a present for you and Suzie. Oh, and if he's not already, I'm going to talk Owen into taking you out tonight. You understand why. ;)
I'll see you at home after work.
You Are Kayaking
You have a competitive spirit, but you don't like to compete alone.

If you have the right partner, nothing can stop you. Your energy is infinite!
You are The Wheel of Fortune
Good fortune and happiness but sometimes a species of
intoxication with success
The Wheel of Fortune is all about big things, luck, change, fortune. Almost always good fortune. You are lucky in all things that you do and happy with the things that come to you. Be careful that success does not go to your head however. Sometimes luck can change.
What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.
... Well, yeah. I guess I am. ;)
Okay, I guess it's creepily accurate. But I don't know ... Am I really that much of an attention black hole?
Groundbreaking Thinkers are charming, enthusiastic persons. They really bubble over with energy and like to take centre stage. They love variety both professionally and privately. Groundbreaking Thinkers tackle changes consistently with their optimism and firm belief in their own abilities; they are always on the look-out for improvement possibilities. Their excellent communication skills are of great advantage to them here. They approache the world with curiosity and openness and master new situations with a great deal of talent for improvising and with resourcefulness. Their spare time is taken up with a large number of hobbies; most Groundbreaking Thinkers like to travel in order to gather as many different impressions as possible. This personality type is unbeatable at discovering new possibilities.
In their work, Groundbreaking Thinkers highly rate challenges and diversified tasks. They cannot stand routine and too detailed work. They love to astound others with bold ideas for an original, new project and then leave it up to the others to implement them. Hierarchies, rules and regulations arouse their opposition and they love outsmarting the system. It is vital to them that they enjoy their work; if this is the case, they quickly become a pure workaholic. Their creativity best takes effect when they works independently; but they are very good at motivating others and infecting them with their optimistic nature. Conceptual or advisory activities appeal especially to Groundbreaking Thinkers. It can happen that some people feel somewhat duped by their flexible, spontaneous nature.
Their sociability and enterprise ensure that Groundbreaking Thinkers always have a large circle of friends and acquaintances in which activity plays an important role. As they are mostly in a good mood, they are popular and very welcome guests. Grumbling and peevishness are unknown to them. However, they do tend to be a little erratic and unstable when it comes to obligations and this makes them appear to be unreliable to some. Groundbreaking Thinkers are very critical and demanding when it comes to picking a partner because they look for the ideal relationship and have a very concrete picture of this ideal relationship. Mutual aims in life are very important to them. They do not like compromising and would rather remain alone. For the partner, it is often a challenge to have a long-term relationship with an Groundbreaking Thinker. Groundbreaking Thinkers need a lot of space and diversity or otherwise they become bored and feel cramped. Types who are rather more traditionalistic often have problems with the willingness of Groundbreaking Thinkers to take risks and their often crazy, spontaneous actions. However, if one can summon up sufficient flexibility and tolerance for them, one will never be bored in their presence and will always have a loyal and faithful partner.Adjectives which describe your type:

I'm behind in these things that I continually call teambuilding in the back of my head to justify spending time on them at work. XD I blame it on Ianto locking me out of the office the last few days and my just getting back.
I'm going to describe myself in 6 words. Please respond to this message with your own 6 word description of me. Then post this in your own LJ and see if people can describe you in ONLY 6 words.
Handsome rogue with too much time.
Also, because it was a brilliant idea, thanks Sarah Jane ... ;)
Marry me, shag me, or throw me off a cliff?
" ... how about your favourite 21st century foods? I'm totally devoid of inspiration as to what to cook tonight ... Scrap that. You know what I want you to write about now. Explain to me, in minute detail, why you've chosen to settle with this boring old 21st century bloke." - Ianto
I said I'd do both.
My favorite 21st Century foods would probably be fish and chips, pizza, any kind of Indian, and steaks. If I could eat nothing but for the rest of my life, I would be a happy man.
As for the other part, Ianto Jones, as an old acquaintance might've said, how do I love thee? ( Let me count the ways.Collapse )
" ... I would be interested in learning more about your past. It seems to be something you're rather quiet about." - Sarah Jane
I am quiet about my past. I tend to be ... rather guarded about things that have happened to me, where I've been, things like that. I think sometimes I just don't think of it, and other times I think it's because I don't really want people to know me that well. There are parts of me I just want to keep to myself, I don't know how else to say it. Also, a lot of it is my training kicking in. As Hugh might be able to sympathize with, I don't always want to let slip too much future, just because you're just not supposed to know, really. Still, I'll give you a bit of my past, with what detail I'm comfortable with.( So here's my story, at least, in summary. You're not getting everything by a long shot, okay? I still want to keep some secrets. But for those of you curious about the general story of my life so far, your search ends here.Collapse )
"Blog about a moment from our past, something that sticks with you, something you'd share with your team." - Prof. Harrow
Hmm. Something from our past that sticks with me, about you and me, that I would be willing to share with them. I'll tell you guys, the Professor and I go back. I was there when he first was brought to Torchwood. Although he himself may not know this, they brought him in in much the same way I was brought in many, many years earlier. But up until our meeting, I'd only worked as an agent for them in the field, never as a part of the team.
As it turns out, I got to be present the very first time Ewan was introduced to Torchwood House and the main body of the Torchwood Archives. It was like watching a kid on a Christmas where he unexpectedly got everything he ever wanted. Considering the last guy to take care of the archives was rather ... undead and had since been done away with by some nasty dematerializing aliens, I thought Ewan was a great choice for the assignment. But the whole place was in quite a state of disarray. Still, it was like a kid in a candy store. He walked around, discovering each thing like it was brand new with a sense of awe. And the house itself ... We spent a whole two hours as he went from room to room practically communing with it.
Secretly, I think one of the reasons he doesn't visit me more is that he's actually in love with the House. ;)
The reason I bring the whole instance up isn't just the fond memory of Ewan's first real enjoyment of working for Torchwood. It's because the moment he was done and shook himself out of it, he looked at me and said, in that emotionally drained voice he gets when it becomes all too much, "Jack, get me drunk. Now."
That? Was one of the best drinking nights I've ever had in my entire life. I think we were banned from six different pubs, two for drinking them practically dry and four for either starting massive brawls or getting dragged into massive brawls. Not to mention what came later ... Definitely one of the best nights of that decade for me. A great way to round off Ewan's first evening as the new head archivist of Torchwood Two - at that time, the only archivist of T2. How times have changed, eh, my friend?
