I'm spamming mostly to see if I can, since LJ's being a dork, or possibly it's TSCITW, or my lousy connection, or the weather, or... hell if I know. Hopefully it'll be more cooperative tomorrow, since I have comments and email and whatall, but heck, by now you guys know what a slacker I am about that. So, tomorrow. And I was going to spaz about tonight's JoA, but I don't have the energy anymore. Perhaps it's the "my show was disappointing for much of the season but I still love it and I don't know its fate and that was the ending we got" blues (diddy wah doo). I need to rewatch it, plus the pilot and this season's premiere, I think. I will say this- I hate cliffhanger finales. On any show. But especially on shows which have not yet been renewed. That's dirty pool, Ms. Hall.

Anyway. I quite liked this quiz result. Don't know how accurate it is, but she's always been one of my favorites, and whether or not she fits me, she certainly fits my type. Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] devinharris, which goddess am I? )

That dead celebrity soul mate thing is addictive, but I'm so bad at committing. How do I choose between my dream guys, Genghis Khan and Leonardo da Vinci? Holy wacky juxtapositions, Batman! On the distaff side, I get to choose between Mata Hari, Lucrezia Borgia and... Joan of Arc. Hee! Without even cheating! I had to chuckle at, "The celebrity I resemble most... Keira Knightley." Riiight. Oh, even better! "In my home you will find... Farm equipment; butter; a poster of Creed before they broke up (why, Scott Stapp, why???!?)." Bwahahahahaha! Oh dear, oh dear.

"What your date might be like... Joan enjoys describing her visions, praying, and instigating uprisings; it's not unusual for a typical date with her to contain elements of all three activities. In addition, you might find yourself riding on horseback across France and/or attacking English tourists. Joan is slow to anger but single-minded about her interests, so give her plenty of room to make her own decisions. You should also be warned that things often don't end well with religious martyrs. Know your rights and be sure to let people know where you're going." Sounds great! As memes go, this is quite gigglesome.

I was also pretty amused by part of today's Writer's Almanac. It was the last sentence that got me:

"It's the birthday of poet Edwin Markham, born in Oregon City, Oregon (1852). He was famous for his poem 'The Man With a Hoe,' based on a painting by Millet. It was about the brutality of harsh work, and includes the lines:

Bowed by the weight of centuries he leans
Upon his hoe and gazes on the ground,
The emptiness of ages in his face,
And on his back, the burden of the world.

It was a big hit when it came out in 1899."

And my "I love the mail!" giddiness from earlier in the week (eeee, Miracles!) hadn't even worn off yet before it was refreshed today, when my shiny new copy of "Bye Bly/ Ned Zed" arrived. At last, I have all of the Columbia House videos of Brisco County. Huzzah! Watch, any day now, they'll announce DVDs. Heh. And yes, I know that the whole series is downloadable these days, but heck, most of the time I'm lucky to get into my email. You kids today, with your torrents and your high-speed connections and your "rock" music and your Beatle boots... Ahem. Yay, Brisco County! Eet... ees... mine!
