little review

Winter Wonderland

We have reached the point in my county where if the kids miss another full day of school due to snow, they'll start adding days to the end of the school year in June. So despite the current snowfall and arctic temperatures, they are refusing even to call a delay for the morning at this point, meaning we have to wake up usual time on the outside chance that they DON'T delay for an hour, probably only to learn that we could have slept in.

It's very pretty and very, very cold. And I am very tired and not very articulate, having spent all my energy finishing my long-overdue Summerland review (appropriate for season?), so I will stick with posting a couple of links and go collapse...

Pointed out by gotham_syren, What if Lord of the Rings had been written by other authors? Hilarious...

Stacie points out these pics of Viggo at the book signing in L.A. earlier today...anyone here go? Would love to see your pics. Made new icon...I love it when my celebrities mirror my political views...

A good but depressing review of Divine Intervention, a film about Palestinian life under Israeli occupation...

And finally, no surprise at all:

So which LOTR woman are you? Hmm??

Poem for Snowy Friday

cinzia and viva_gloria are trying to kill me. I told Cinzia to watch Smallville, and this is the result. Then I begged Gloria to show me what she was writing that convinced Cinzia to finish and post her story, and this is the result. May actually write something else when I can get up off the floor.

msallegro has bigger photos from Viggo's book signing yesterday at Bag End Inn. Oh, and from Stacie again, more Viggo book signing pictures -- you can see the back of his shirt!
