Happy birthday to wiccanotwicked! May you have a blessed day, and many, many more!


And a quote for the day:

"Slowly the west reaches for clothes of new colors
which it passes to a row of ancient trees.
You look, and soon these two worlds both leave you,
one part climbs toward heaven, one sinks to earth,...

leaving you (it is impossible to untangle the threads)
your own life, timid and standing high and growing,
so that, sometimes blocked in, sometimes reaching out,
one moment your life is a stone in you, and the next, a star."

from Rainer Maria Rilke, "Sunset" (translated by Robert Bly)

::giggle:: That username makes me wish I had opted for "wickedwiccan." ;-)

(Y'know, I once tried to translate "King of Pain" into Klingon... wonder what I did with my notes for that?)

You know, I respect you even more now, if that's humanly possible.
::does the "not worthy" bow::
Imagining those lyrics from the mouth of Klingons is just too much! :):):)

:::BLUSH::: Thanks! :):):) That means a lot coming from you, my fannish idol!

Of course, my ultimate plan was to do the St. Crispin's Day speech in Klingon. That plan got derailed by-- geekily enough-- a roleplaying game wherein I had to devote a lot of time to my character diary!!! ::laughs::

Brian happily got me a paperback of _Right Ho, Jeeves_ at Hypericon, though, and now my fanly ambition is to secretly rewrite that Wodehouse/Lovecraft crossover book using Bertie's voice throughout, which the author was sadly remiss about IMHO.

TOO... MANY... INTERESTS!!! (head explodes)

Oh, WOW! Talk about a Klingon text! ("Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars, And say 'These wounds I had on Crispian's day.'") *head explodes in geekish delight*

ROFLOL!

Oooo, love that icon. Great movie, and I love Bean. Even before LotR. Great actor, and he was good in The Island.

Thanks! It was great, wasn't it? And I love him -- as the commercial says, "Roll that beautiful Bean footage." LOL. I enjoyed him in The Island, too, which we just saw this past weekend. I'm looking forward to your review of it! What's the next film lined up for you? The next one we're planning on seeing is The Skeleton Key.

Haven't gotten my assignment yet, but I'm hoping for Skeleton Key or Sky High, as I want to see them both. :)
