Well, to be accurate, yes, numbers should be able to "predict" the future. Everything is applied mathmatics if you go deep enough - from the development of life to the movement of the planets, it all boils down to maths. Theoretically, the whole universe should be able to be defined by one equation. Of course, that is assuming that the human race's "destiny" is predetermined, which is another argument all together; but assuming this equation does exist if we knew it we would know the future of the entire universe - maybe even beyond - down to the last sub-atomic particle.

However, numerology is simply looking for patterns, often in completely arbitory man-made devices such as the calendar. Today is 10/10/10 - that doesn't mean something important will happen, it's just how we've decided to measure time. Today could be the 27th day of the 39th month, year 5971. How we've chosen count the days and months and years doesn't change anything, and definitely won't allow us to predict the future.

I don't really want to get into it, but basically a girl I knew when I was 15/16. We were really close... and then everything went wrong, she turned out to be a bitch and made me very unhappy :(

Writer's Block: Another country  
[Error: unknown template qotd]
Sure - I think most of my flist is from the states/Canada. The ones I'd actually consider friends though (and who I talk to off LJ) are:

[ profile] smthwallflower - We talk pretty much every day, because the time difference, me getting up early for work and her staying up late aligns perfectly for MSN chats while I'm on the bus to work ^_^ We talk about crazy stuff that it is wayyyy to early for, it's fun :)

[ profile] jamie55  - I think she was the first person to friend me on LJ? We can't talk that often because of the time difference and she's usually busy, but I do like chatting to her :) Although last time we talked things went a bit... I mean, it was my fault, but... yeah :/ We're still friends though I hope

I would like to meet them both, but they live in Canada so... If I ever go to Canada though (or if you guys come to the UK) we should meet, it'd be cool :D

Edited because LJ ate the bit about [ profile] smthwallflower . Sorry, dude, I guess LJ just doesn't want us to be friends xD
I feel: happy

Well, my first name is Sarah, but a few of my older friends and my family sometimes call me Sazz; and my surname begins with a K. So, in answer to the second question, no xD

Writer's Block: Top ten playlist  
[Error: unknown template qotd]

1. Daedalus, by Thrice. This song is absolutely beautiful. It's the Icarus myth from his fathers POV.
2. The Last Song I'm Wasting On You, by Evanescence. I love this song. It makes me feel happier when things are getting me down.
3. The House Of The Rising Sun, by The Animals. My dad loves The Animals, this song always reminds me of being a child and hearing it play. Plus it's awesome.
4. We Came To Dance, by The Gaslight Anthem. Seriously, everyone should listen to The Gaslight Anthem, they're amazing. This song always makes me want to go out with my friends and just have fun.
5. Propane Nightmares, by Pendulum. I'm not really one for drum and bass, but I love this song SO much. Probably because it's more of a rock sound than their other tracks... Anyway, it's very catchy and so much fun to dance to xD
6. The Islander, by Nightwish. This song doesn't sound much like any of their other stuff (although I love them too), but it's fantastic. They played it when I saw them live, I was so excited when it started xD
7. Welcome To The Black Parade, by My Chemical Romance. I actually have a Black Parade jacket... This song is really great. I find it weirdly uplifting lol.
8. Even Cowgirls Get The Blues, by the Gaslight Anthem. This song is wonderful, I listen to it all the time.
9. A Song For Milly Michaelson, by Thrice. This song is really simple but beautiful. Apparently it's based on a film. It's about a boy (who can fly) and how he loves this girl more than anything and will always be there to save her. Awwww.
10. Bliss, by Aiden. So this song's a bit depressing, but GOD I love it. They played this when I saw them live too :) It always reminds me of when I went on the school trip to Venice, because that was the day after I went to the Aiden gig and I was completely obsessed with this song.

So that's the top 10. Although there are so many other songs I love.... LOADS of other Thrice and Gaslight Anthem tracks, Evanescence, Nightwish, Kill Hannah... It was a hard descision.
As for the songs I loved as a kid... they would have all been S Club 7 and Spice Girls. Not the sort of thing I like now.... xD

I feel: happy

Writer's Block: Book worms unite!  
[Error: unknown template qotd]
Ohhh, that's hard.

Favourites (in no particular order):
  • Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, by Haruki Murakami - This book is amazing. Murakami is one of my all time favourite authors and this is the first book I read by him. It's amazing, I've read it so many times.
  • His Dark Materials, by Phillip Pullman - Okay, it's three books but I'm counting it as one. These books are brilliant. I wish I had a daemon... Also I like the digs at the church ;) Oh, and it's set in Oxford (well, bits of it are in Oxford, or at least a parallel universe Oxford) which is about ten miles from where I live :)
  • Kit's Wilderness, by David Almond - We read Skellig (also by Almond) at primary school (I think I was about 10 at the time), and because I enjoyed that so much my Dad bought me Kit's Wilderness. I've read it so many times since. I love the way it mixes the stories of the mines and the story Kit's writing in with the "reality" of the book.
Not sure if I have three least favourite books. If I don't like a book I tend to forget about it. I didn't really like We Need To Talk About Kevin though... I'd heard it was really good and I just couldn't get into it. I didn't like or care about any of the characters, and I had to force myself to finish it. The end was pretty good though, I didn't see it coming at all.

1. Yes, if it was the home of my dreams. In fact, I would even if it wasn't my dream home, but still nice - I'm not superstitiouss.
2. DEFINITLY YES, I'd live almost anywhere if it was rent-free.
3. No, I don't believe in ghosts.
I feel: indescribable

Writer's Block: Concert mania  

[Error: unknown template qotd]EVANESCENCE! I've loved them for the last 7 years. I have about a million Amy Lee posters in my room. Seeing them would be a dream come true. And if they were playing anywhere in the UK, I'd travel to see them, no matter how long it took. (I'd also probably queue up hours in advance so I could be near the front. The Evanescence love runs deep xD )

I'd also quite like to see My Chemical Romance and Muse because I'd heard they're both awesome live.
