Happy birthday tomorrow, wiliqueen!
tv_elf, I fitted this mithril chair, from koinonia's collection, with a gravity-defying device cf. wiliqueen.
(See Homecoming: Harmony by Uncle Orson.)
Lesser nut-cases borrow; greater ones steal!
wiliqueen, I present you with this Wormhole of Dead Hero Snatching and one of my spare axolotl tanks. Few weeks and they're good as new.
Here also is a coupon for a free set of Gween Lalien headshots at teunc's Gween Lalien Photographic Agency.

From wiliqueen's blog - the trouble with labels:
You Are a New School Democrat
You like partying and politics - and are likely to be young and affluent.
You're less religious, traditional, and uptight than most Democrats.
Smoking pot, homosexuality, and gambling are all okay in your book.
You prefer that the government help people take care of themselves.
Umm... not really, especially the first two lines. ("... unless by `affluence' you mean `reliable service at a low, low price'.")
Edit, 23:55 CST:
To the pure all things are pure; not only meats and drinks, but all kinds of knowledge whether of good or evil; the knowledge cannot defile, nor consequently the books, if the will and conscience be not defiled.
-John Milton (1608-1674)
This logic should be applied to todays media!
Then again, if John M. was alive today, what would he think of our culture?
to which I replied:
Where there is much desire to learn, there of necessity will be much arguing, much writing, many opinions; for opinion in good men is but knowledge in the making.
-John Milton, Areopagitica
Quoted at the end of my dissertation proposal in 1997.
