Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you for wanting to write in one of my fandoms. Yuletide is one of my favorite things during the year and I am always so happy to participate. I've also been told that I'm easy to please when it comes to writing for me. I hope you find that to be true!

The thing I want you to remember the most is to not stress over it and have fun with whatever you write for me. I'm pretty laid back as far as what I get and I promise I will be thrilled to get anything written for any of these choices!

After watching 1995's "PERSUASION", I noticed that director Roger Michell shot a lot of scenes featuring the main characters either eating a meal. Because I found myself bored at the moment, I decided to post some scenes from various Jane Austen television or movie adaptations with her characters enjoying food: Read more... )

The brutal truth is that my current graphics card (AMD Radeon HD 6900 series, don’t remember the exact iteration) doesn’t like Warlords of Draenor very much. The fan races crazily like a hamster on amphetamines in a wheel when I play the beta.

So now I am facing buying a new card (and possible total reinstall of Windows and all associated games) within the next month. It takes me at least a week to download all the crap I like to play or otherwise need. To call this a major disruption to my normal life would be … an understatement.

I prefer to do a wipe and reinstall when putting in a new graphics card. If I switch to an nVidia card, that becomes a certainty.

Ugh.

"TOWARDS ZERO" (2007) Review

When it comes to the television adaptations of Agatha Christie’s Jane Marple novels, I tend to stick with those that featured the late Joan Hickson as the elderly sleuth. However, my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to watch a movie that starred Geraldine McEwan as Miss Jane Marple. And this movie is the 2007 adaptation of Christie’s 1944 novel called "Towards Zero". Read more... )

As done by Three Wyrd Sisters. I found out about this song only last night while roleplaying in WoW, when a speaker at Storyeller Circle recited the lyrics.



Covered in dirt and mud,
Aching and splitting blood
Cursing, you stir to rise and groan
Muffled in yet-to-come
Mutters a battle drum:
Werewolves don't usually walk alone . . .

Chorus:
Think on the battle-cost;
This time, the wolf has lost
Beaten and broken and blind
Better beware, my lord
Better prepare, my lord
I was the least of my kind.


Prying my switchblade cold
Out of my fingers' hold
Pause to take stock,
Reflect and rue;
Look on the damage done
Here by a single one
What do you think a full pack will do?

Chorus:
Think on the battle-cost;
This time, the wolf has lost
Beaten and broken and blind
Better beware, my lord
Better prepare, my lord
I was the least of my kind
.

Careless, I came by chance
Joining in battle's dance
Slain in a fight I could not win.
-- Far off, a wolf pack hears;
Heads turn with pricking ears
Thought you, my lord, that I had no kin?

Chorus:
Think on the battle-cost;
This time, the wolf has lost
Beaten and broken and blind
Better beware, my lord
Better prepare, my lord
I was the least of my kind!



(As often happens, I meddled with the punctuation for drama. No, I don't know why a werewolf would use a switchblade.)
