So because Gmail said they made a few changes to their design, I was looking a bit closer, and that's when I noticed the current ad at the top of my inbox:

Voodoo Masters - www.voodoomasters.com - Expert In Love Spells.Serious Calls Only 35 Yrs Exp.

I think my favourite part is "Serious Calls Only".

So it seems LJ is running a script in the background whenever you click on an outbound link. There's more details here, along with how to turn it off.

Etsy!

Just so's you folks can all take a look and buy stuff, Ali and I have an Etsy account!

You can find us at SpykerCreations.etsy.com!

Right now it just has some awesome jewelery that Alison made, but when Jolynn gets home I'm going to get her to teach me how to use curves in photoshop (well, gimp, really) to adjust colours and do prints of my art. I'll also start selling originals when I'm happy with something I've done (i.e. consistent surfaces, etc.)

So yes, take a look! tell your friends! buy awesome stuff!

This amused me greatly. David Tennant and Catherine Tate awesomeness.

So after being tragically half entranced by facebook, it occurred to me that the things I really want I can find at lj, and facebook can't do the things I really want. That being the freedom to post what I want without having to worry quite so much about who will see it.

So I am here to say, to you my two readers, that I may well be back to more than just reading my friend's page.

Galileo was not on trial for science? WHO KNEW?!?

Actually, it pleases me that such a book might get popular attention as it may save many migraines of dealing with wannabe intellectual atheists who rail against religion (i.e., Christianity) and pull out examples such as Galileo to show how the Church is anti-science, etc.

That said, the first comment I saw read as follows: ".....yes right!...and the Inquisition didn't really happen...it was all a myth...."

I'm probably being overly optimistic.

So this is from my semantics textbook:

"At first glance, this may seem to be an unnecessary complexification..."

Complexification, eh? Because 'complication' would be too simple?

So I have today been shown proof that if you can imagine it, it automatically exists somewhere on the internet. What proof you say? I present you with Elizabeth Bennet/Captain Jack Harkness fanfiction.

Oh, and while I'm at it, Doctor Who and the Golden Compass.

This looks like it could be a lot of fun. It appeals to my love of Pride and Prejudice, as well as my love of absurdity. I think I will have to look it up when it comes out.

Boots!

So I bought boots today! I am very excited as they are made of awesome and weren't even all that expensive!

Today is a good day.

And tomorrow I shall go to the library to look all dignified in my new boots with my coat and only wanting a pipe and a glass of port or scotch.

So tonight I went to the Newman Cabaret, In the Mood. It was spectacular and awesome. The music was really well done and a lot of fun, and the food was good, and there was dancing. Oh how I love dancing. All in all it was an amazing event and I hope I can go again one day, or even better, if I must live in this city for another year again someday, to sing in it. Yay swing!

This image pleased me: link.

I found it at the Globe's daily pictures.

I spent part of this evening looking at pictures first of malamute puppies, and then of cairn terrier puppies, and then pictures of Simon when he was a puppy. My brain 'sploded from the cute O_O

Today I picked up Irina Metzler's Disability in Medieval Europe (also, parts are available here) from interlibrary loan. I started reading the introduction and at one point she says, "Questions this book addresses with regard to medieval notions of impairment, for example, revolve around ideas concerning the liminality of impairment..."1

Oh how I love the notion of liminality and it fills me with glee when I run across it elsewhere...

Just because there are some people on my list that are not on hers,

CALLING ALL CANADIANS! I need help with my Canadian English class!

The question is, 'What do you call an evening meal?' Unless you're over 30 and you tell me, I'm going to drop you into the 'under 30' category of the chart thingy.

And Esther, same to you as to me!

Gurgle...

I no brain Latin today. And I said I'd go in to sit the semi-sight test thing today in the MA Latin class. Blahhh... hopefully he chooses a passage we've done in class before Wednesday, and not the passage I'm trying to read now that is just words before my eyes.

* Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

Winnie Ille Pu, Milnei

"'Quonam eram iturus?' Lente exsurrexit.
Et tunc illico in mentem ei venit: 'Natalicium Ioris manducaverat!'"

I largely only did this because I looked over and this really was the closest book on hand.
