Dream a lille dream of me...
Dream, the third of The Endless, you are in charge
of the Dreaming, all imagination and
creativity, everyone knows your beautiful
realm, but none truly understand it. You are
dark and brooding, creative, and spend a lot of
time by yourself, just thinking. You are almost
as serious as Destiny, but not quite. Everyone
is enchanted by you, but you keep them all at a
distance, even when you shouldn't.
Which Endless are you?

Wot a surprise...
You are Sam- heartfelt, loving, generous and kind.
Your view of humanity is, on the whole, good.
You're a genuinely good person and friends and
family mean a whole lot to you.
Which Hobbit are You- Sam, Merry, Pippin or Frodo?

Speaking of hobbit dreams: I had a very odd dream lsat nught; I'd lost my glasses, and was told by a ghostly-looking janitor that it was on the ground floor of some university building (ever have a dream when your university buildings are an amalgam of all the campus buildings you have been in, only larger)?
I kept going downstairs, but when I got to the last two, they were cordoned off because some action film was being shot on the first ground floor. There were extras dressed as students, some as S.W.A.T., and some as elves. Howard Shore's triumphal LoTR theme was playing over the public announcement system, as the elves kept sliding down the bannisters and I wondered whether I should laso do it as there was no other way down.
Finally, Orlando Bloom walked past me and did this little baxflip thing where he went down the side of the railing and landed on the ground floor without touching the railing (just the side of the bannister). I memember thinking, "yeah, but that's going to look silly". That lsat bit is prolly wright fater he came to Merkia oat of istari_ala's dream. Bha, elf gymnastics.
Nazwaz, I blame gondhir for his casting of Scrubby, the King of the Dead, as the janitor of the University of Middle-earth and Legolas as the gymnastics coach.

Pardon my roggish, or the Promised Rant: Macromedia Shockwave, particularly the browser plug-in, is designed by lembas-eating patootie heads. I was in the middle of composing very lengthy and URL-laden comments in the LiveJournals of scionofgrace (here) and phawkwood (here) when I went to check a link, as I am wont to do mid-post. Comes a Macromedia Shockwave install dialog (acos this ThinkPad didn't have it yet), to which I clicked "yes" - much to my chagrin, as it started closing browser windows! To add insult to injury, it quit after shutting down 7 of my 18 MSIE windows, including both of my "post comment" windows and complained, "Macromedia Shockwave Installer has detected that you have other browser windows open - cancel this installation or try to shut them down?" How about "bha, neither of the above, toast me"? Trasking patootieheads.
Last but not least, Happy Birthday to phawkwood! Lamost of age, we hobbits are...
