Hoist the Colors

Not that I'm playing D&D or anything...

Ganked from lell

Wizards are scions of arcane magic. Wizards tap the true power that permeates the cosmos, research esoteric rituals that can alter time and space, and hurl balls of fire that incinerate massed foes. Wizards wield spells the way warriors brandish swords.

Magic lured you into its grasp, and now you seek to master it in turn. You could be a bespectacled sage searching for dusty tomes in forgotten sepulchers, a scarred war mage plying foes with fireballs and foul language in equal measure, a disgruntled apprentice who absconded with your master's spellbooks, an eladrin upholding the magical tradition of your race, or even a power-hungry student of magic who might do anything to learn a new spell.

A cloak of spells enfolds you, ancient rituals bolster your senses, and runed implements of your craft hang from your belt. Effervescing arcane lore pulses through your consciousness, a constant pressure craving release. When will you know enough magic to storm the ramparts of reality itself?

Carol of the Bells

Wow. Just wow...I'd love to be able to play piano like this. I'm gonna have to dig out my old (very easy, somewhat boring, after this) sheet music for this song...it's my favorite carol.

Win No. 5

I know I haven't been on here much, but this deserves a mention. For five years, I've been doing NaNoWriMo, and every year previous I've won. Well stick a fork in me, I'm done, again. And two days early. Thanks, lell, for putting me up to that "oh, finish on the 28th because you're 28" challenge. Huzzah. This is a historic day, my friends. YES WE CAN.

"But I am the chosen one!"

International trailer for HP 6. The last few seconds are quite funny.

It's a love story



Yes, the writing is pretty juvenile. Yes, it's pretty much Mary Sue. Yes, it's vampires and werewolves and teenage angst. But at heart it's a love story, and that makes me smile. So yes, even though I'm way out of the target range for the books, I'll see the movie, and hope it isn't horrible. If nothing else, I can look at Robert Pattinson for a few hours.

I should clean it sometime



What Your Fridge Says About You



You like to be surrounded by things you love. You aren't exactly greedy, but you can be materialistic at times.



You tend to be a fairly thrifty person. You splurge occasionally, but you're mostly a saver.



You don't tend to be a very adventurous person, but you do surprise everyone now and then. You have a bit of a wild side.



You try to be responsible, but you don't always succeed. Your heart is in the right place though.



You are likely single - and a workaholic.
