Poem for Wednesday and <lj comm

Collapse )

wednesday100: Ruse, for the blackout challenge.

I have about 30 pieces of mail to answer, 20 LJ comments to respond to and two stories to beta. And my kids are home, and it's raining, and guess what they said they wanted to do today if it was raining and we couldn't go swimming or play miniature golf? Go see Pirates of the Caribbean again. So I am making the great *snerk* sacrifice and taking them to the movies. Will get back to everyone as soon as I can!

You are Jasmine from Aladdin!

POTC Take Two

It's still pretty silly. There are still plot holes I could toss a chest of gold through. But I actually think I liked it even better this time around. The sense of FUN is just incredible. How do movies like Attack of the Clones manage to be so thoroughly NOT-FUN? Everything about Pirates of the Caribbean screams of fun -- not just the actors and the extras, but the costumes, the hair, the hats, the sets, the's pure unadulterated pleasure. More so than Finding Nemo which is about to eclipse The Lion King as the most ridiculously overrated Disney movie of all time. Having sat through a number of Serious Movies With Meaningful Plots recently, I have no qualms about admitting how pleased I am with POTC.

Line from a joke e-mail my father sent me: "Now that food has replaced sex in my life, I can't even get into my own pants." HOWL! In other news, when children eat a lot of popcorn at 3 p.m. they do not eat dinner. And bears...well, you know.

I owe everyone a decent photo but could not resist this quiz, gacked from copperbadge who has a delightful amount of S/R fic on his site. And speaking of HP, everyone go read ashinae's Lucius/Severus story that I betaed line by line, "Taboo"!
