Japan - Secrets

Wouldn't You Like To Know?

Pillaged from calliopes_pen

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list. Some people I know relatively well. I read your journals, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you for your interest in my words.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself? Any old thing at all, the more trivial and fascinating, the better. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...they have a giant birthmark shaped like a wildebeest on their right buttock."

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal and see what gems of knowledge appear.

No obligation to post it on your journal if you leave a comment. Pick the parts you want to do, the usual :)
Media - Minas Tirith

And There Was Much Rejoicing!

Okay, this news cheered me up considerably!

«   /div> Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema have reached agreement to make J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit," a planned prequel to the blockbuster trilogy "The Lord of the Rings."

Jackson, who directed "Rings," will serve as executive producer for "The Hobbit." A director for the prequel films has yet to be named.

Relations between Jackson and New Line had soured after "Rings," despite a collective worldwide box office gross of nearly $3 billion — an enormous success. The two sides nevertheless were able to reconcile, with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios (MGM) splitting "The Hobbit" 50/50, spokesmen for both studios said Tuesday.

"I'm very pleased that we've been able to put our differences behind us, so that we may begin a new chapter with our old friends at New Line," Jackson said in a statement. "We are delighted to continue our journey through Middle Earth."

Holiday - Xmas Red Balls

My Muse is Wierd

So somehow, writing the silly pointless ficlet yesterday seems to have undone the logjam that was formerly known as 'I Remember You Not Fondly'. How writing a piece of total nonsense leads me to figure out where I'm going with the violent rated R fic is beyond me. I swear, the reason there hasn't been another part isn't due to lack of trying on my part. I've stopped and started and restarted over and over, but just seemed stuck. Now it seems to be moving. Of course, I'm currently working on the QoS fic, so I hope the flow keeps on till I can get back to writing it!
Nature - Winter Frost

Very Amusing

Just finished watching Peter's video diary to the fan club, and the reactions of non-native California residents to the winter weather here never fails to amuse [g] Peter just continues the tradition! Oh, and he needs to go to Home Depot (scroll down to the third line) and get an Outdoor Digital Timer with Dusk-to-Dawn Sensor. I never have to go out in the cold to turn off the Xmas lights!

He probably wouldn't want to know about the winters we've played on the iced over driveway here at work.
