Poem for Tuesday

Collapse )

A short one today, but one of the very, very best ever. I am going out to lunch with gblvr, perkypaduan and vertigo66 -- what could be better? (Other than mamadracula, ashinae and lots of others on this continent and others being able to join us? office_ennui, come back soon so we can go see ROTK together!)

Was contemplating last night the value of People You Know In Real Life versus Online Friends. Sometimes even People You Know In Real Life come across as inveterate bitches when you're talking to them in an online forum. I wonder how many People I Know In Real Life think this regularly about me while reading things I've written online.

musesfool led me to this interesting comment by mousapelli on ancient Greek playwrights as fanfic writers. Oh, I shall enjoy the fic inspired by Troy. I hope Helen gets included because I've always thought she must have amazing stories to tell.

Aragorn and Boromir, Sleepy

TrekToday Rumor of the Day

Two major news sites report that Enterprise may be moved to Friday night, cut to 24 episodes per season and cancelled after its fourth year.

This is not surprising, if true, but it is disenheartening. Ah well, maybe they'll make a DS9 miniseries now with the original cast members, instead of cooking up something like that travesty of a Battlestar Galactica that I had stopped watching long before it ended.

In better news, I had a lovely lunch with my evil local fannish cohorts and then we all went to Barnes and Noble and Target together to look at magazines and action figures...what could be more fun?

Then I came home to fold laundry, and watched the first half of The Sum of Us. Will trade smut to anyone who can provide me with screen caps of 1) Russell Crowe's naked arse and 2) Russell Crowe kissing a boy.

My Barbie dealer tells me that my Aragorn and Arwen are shipping. I am very happy. Laugh at me all you like!

And I forget where I originally saw this link -- fileg, I'm thinking it was you -- but I finally got around to checking out Lego Block Porn. Hee!

The Earth Moved

Minutes after I posted that last, my chair started vibrating. My computer bobbled up and down. The foo dogs on either side of my monitor crept toward the edge. My younger son said that the basement railing was shaking.

I thought, perhaps, that a big pile of snow had crashed off a neighbor's roof and caused something to crack in our townhouse wall. It was scary.

Then I got in the car to drive my older son to Hebrew school, put on the radio, and they were reporting on the earthquake that had just hit Northern Virginia. (ETA: 4.5 on the Richter Scale.)

How do people in Southern California live with this ALL THE TIME?
