Poem for Saturday

Today I think we are taking the kids pumpkin-picking at one of those big festivals with hay rides and slides into bales and bluegrass music. Meanwhile a couple of pictures from yesterday Collapse )

And because other people are doing it, in case anyone is interested: Collapse )

hp100: New Age, for the "when in Rome" challenge. lotr100: Evermind, for the argument challenge.

Yesterday I discovered nigellus' vids. I also discovered that she made them by stealing ashinae's footage, including edits and even some glitches that she couldn't possibly have gotten from the original films as she claims. I am all in favor of people sharing things in fandom and have never denied anyone permission to use my ideas, my OCs, my graphics, my scenarios or anything else, but it is basic courtesy to ask and to give credit where credit is due! How hard is this for children to understand? We disclaim what Tolkien and Rowling own, we need to credit for what our peers own as well!

Oh, and a quiz, gacked from much of my Friends list. Not sure why but since I don't 'ship A/L (in fact I run screaming in the opposite direction), this works as well as any, I suppose.

You are Thorongil.

The Woods Are Lovely, Dark and Deep

...and full of plastic skeletons, space aliens and werewolves.

And the sand pit is full of plastic spiders, animals, candy-corn men and ornamental witches.

And the jalapeno mustard is really, really good.

Fic to come. This, from half my Friends list, a perfectly delightful result and in keeping with my various astrological profiles that I don't believe in:

You are Form 0, Phoenix: The Eternal.

"And The Phoenix's cycle had reached
zenith, so he consumed himself in fire. He
emerged from his own ashes, to be forever

Some examples of the Phoenix Form are Quetzalcoatl
(Aztec), Shiva (Indian), and Ra-Atum

The Phoenix is associated with the concept of life,
the number 0, and the element of fire.
His sign is the eclipsed sun.

As a member of Form 0, you are a determined
individual. You tend to keep your sense of
optimism, even through tough times and have a
positive outlook on most situations. You have
a way of looking at going through life
as a journey that you can constantly learn from.
Phoenixes are the best friends to have because
they cheer people up easily.

Which Mythological Form Are You?
