Japan - Autumn Leaves Geisha

Time's Passage

This is very rambleish, so bear with me.

Specifically, I was thinking this in regards to Methos as I was watching the most excellent vid "And As for You" by killabeez, but it applies to Highlander in general. The passage of time. How must it be to not see someone for more than two thousand years, then they're back in your life? Are Immortal's brains different in how they perceive and deal with the passage of time? Would a century seems like a few months? Do they have a more vivid and complete memory system than we do? Methos says his earliest memories are barely there anymore, assuming he's telling the truth of course, so there must be some sort of max for them. So he has vivid memories of four thousand years ago, but not five?

Just for myself, trying to remember people that I was close to twenty five years ago, but haven't seen since, my memory is fairly hazy. But for Immortals, it seems that seeing someone millennia later is like they just said goodbye last week.

The Night's Plan

I'm making two batches of pot beans. One is black beans for refried black beans, and the other is pinto beans for refried pinto beans w/fried onions. The beans are all tender and cooked, now comes the mashing and frying bit. The apartment smells wonderful!

In between, I'll be online, checking email and reading whatever comes my way. When we get to late night, check out all_night_owl.

His Way

Remember William Shatner's epic tribute to George Lucas? Well, you can see it again! [wiping tears from eyes]

Damn, I wish I'd recorded the thing when it aired! For the linked performance, and for Carrie Fisher's and Harrison Ford's tribute -- "the better written, better acted Star Wars movies."

A Cool Idea

This rerunawards is a nifty idea. Sort of a fic version of the Island of Misfit Toys [g] Or maybe not, but it sounded good when I thought it! I know I've read a lot of good fic the last few months, I'm just not sure it it's new enough. Will have to backtrack and see if I can find dates.
