It's September! It's September! Fringe and Chuck return, and The Event premieres. Only three weeks until the joint birthdays of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. Only thirty days until my favorite month of the year. Starbucks is serving pumpkin lattes again, and Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is selling a limited edition pumpkin latte fragrance that is out of this world, and so it smells like the best season of the year, even if the thermometer doesn't quite yet reflect the feeling of fall.

Happy birthday to marthawells and aragornlover! May you enjoy many happy returns of the day.

I have some links to share:



I'll leave you with the "Particle Physics Song" interpreted by the CERN Choir, performing in the CERN Control Centre:




"By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer."
- Helen Hunt Jackson, September

I can't wait for this new season. The casting of Linda Hamilton is inspired (though I'll miss Scott Bakula).

I think Scott mentioned he might be brought back a few times, though he wasn't sure. It was a question brought up at a panel with him and Dean Stockwell :) Was a very fun panel :) Though they weren't able to confirm any rumors of a movie on Quantum Leap... but they would like to be part of such if it occurs!

Gosh, I love that bracelet. What a perfect quote to pick.

Sep. 4th, 2010 11:51 pm (UTC)
Aw, thank you! She's incredibly talented, and I'm just thrilled with it. That quote - the whole song, really -- is one of my favorite things ever. :)

And have you seen the the Higgs Boson? If so, please report it to your nearest physicists :P

Just in case you missed it, I would appreciate some shoggoth prayers in support of the possibility of the U.S. premiere of Shoggoth on the Roof. Note that it's a Friends Only post, so be sure to be signed in.

wellinghall is devising his own list of Best Fantasy Novels in answer to the various lists making their way around the blogosphere. And he seeks your input! Please drop by his LiveJournal and share your picks for the best fantasy reading for adults and children. Pass the word!

I'm more a scifi person, but I did manage to come up with a few. :-)

And, yeay, October is almost here!

Love the bracelet and tempted to get one, myself! Great idea... inspiring.

Thank you! I can't take any credit. That song is one of my favorite things ever. Inspiring, indeed. I collect musical interpretations of it, as a matter of fact - I think I have six or seven different versions. At any rate, I'm so thrilled to have found such a talented artist to translate it into jewelry! :) I think she's added it to her main shop now as a regular item, FYI.

*hugs*

What a wonderful choice of quote for the bracelet! I've always loved that moment in the story, but to see the quote taken out like this, and put on something you'd wear with you everywhere --- what an inspiring thing.

Nice!

Thank you! It's one of my favorite verses ever, and I'm just amazed at how she translated it so beautifully into the bracelet. Inspiring is the perfect word. :)

Oh, lovely bracelet! And yay, Sept 1. Time to pull my Halloween shirts out and air them out while I wait for the Spook-Me contest to start sign-ups....
eldritchhobbit
Sep. 4th, 2010 11:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I can't take any credit, of course. I just love how she turned one of my favorite verses into a bracelet.

The Spook-Me contest is such a great idea. And three cheers for your Halloween shirts!

Much, much love for your icon, as well. That's brilliant. ((((Vincent!))))

I'm so glad you had a good one! How are you liking your iPad? What a lovely gift!

The iPad is very neat, I'm enjoying it a lot. We just put a protective skin on it yesterday, so I'm having to leave it alone until it finishes setting.

Awesome! I've been looking at the iPad with lust, I must admit.

Your enthusiasm delights me! Though I still feel like you only like September because it's almost October... Hehe.

That bracelet is AMAZING! I love Etsy. Now I'm going to be looking at that artist's stuff and everyone else's stuff for the rest of the day probably.

LOL! :)

Well, I do happen to know several very brilliant people were born in September, so these days I have to give the month its own props.

Etsy is incredible. And this artist does amazing work. I PMed her about my idea, and the very next day, she'd created this lovely piece. Every time I look at it, I feel inspired. I love all of the creativity and innovation and energy that Etsy represents, and how it lets people connect and work together to create.

In honour of your wonderful self, I'm going to darken the doorstep of a Starbucks while I'm in Seattle (they'll be hard to find, right...?) and get a pumpkin latte.

And actually drink it.

If we're not BFFs after this, I don't know what it'll take, A...

YES!!!!!!!!!! I think that's the modern version of becoming "blood brothers," or some such ritual. Our lives will be forever entwined thanks to the magic of the pumpkin latte. I had one just a couple of hours ago, in fact, imagining you with yours across the continent... :)

I do hope you're having a most excellent time!

What a happy bracelet! It's September, but it's still in the 90's in Florida. *sad face*

That bracelet is love, I'm telling ya. :)

It's actually getting down into the forties tonight here, if the news is to be believed. I'm sending you virtual cool breezes!

Something we came across once more this year was a pumpkin spice coffee that Witchcat really likes. Called Ichabod's Dame by the Coffee Shop of Horrors :) I can't give you a personal opinion (really dislike coffee :P), but Witchcat says it is the best pumkin flavored coffee she's ever had :)
