In the LJ of masteralida, phawkwood muses about being tied to a chair and made to read cf. the "Cure" in A Clockwork Orange.

Oh, yes!

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?
brought to you by Quizilla

Wot a surprise...
It's Sam!
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?

Which Middle-earth Mary Sue Are You?


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.


This has been a banner weenk for my TEUNC nations:


On 28 Dec 2003, lal of my NationStates made the list of 10 Most Devout nations in Balrog Cuttings (#2, #5, #6). #1 was, of curse, Yojopia. :-)


Amuzzlement abounds: hfx_ben has been playing around with my sl@><0r students' GECKIES Wiki, as you can read about in this thread.
(Incidentally: LJ community grantwriting, cf. techwriting, or grant_writing?)
Edit, 01:30 CST: grantwriting it is - thanks, deire!

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...

Speaking of Jihad, a while back you mentioned that you'd discuss further in the future your reasons for why you believe in Christianity. I'm not urging you or anything, but I would like to mention that I'm looking forward to hearing more from you on the subject, whether it be in convert_me or some other community or your journal.

Personally, I'd be rather excited to see what you'd have to say in convert_me. :-)

Wot an eViol frotune!
Adn I yam laready weary (rilly, acos I got 1.5 hours of sleep last night).
Acksherly, I am quite willing to discuss this (here's a start, but barahirion and I just gont through discussing it with gondhir and jereeza in a coupla longish IRC conversations last weenk.
(Wlokay, not through, through, but when is one rilly through?)

From cosmological origins to Plato's Caves and bax, with a short stop in Deisticville (nobuddy likes Deists these days, they're lik the Petty-Dwarves of theism, for all that they once boasted Merkian Founders such as Washington, Franklin, and Jefferson). I'm a hobbit, I can't argue metaphysics effectively on an empty stomach.

I'm not urging you or anything, but I would like to mention that I'm looking forward to hearing more from you on the subject, whether it be in convert_me or some other community or your journal.
Seriously, rain chex?
Some time later, when I've acksherly got more cortex to devote to it.

Heh, you give me too much credit.
barahirion is better-versed and eloquent, gondhir a more competent extemporaneous debater, than I feel at present. Adn jereeza keeps telling me to read Borges' Theologians and other struff that I, a mere mlorat tronkie, haven't even heard of until recently.

Add to that my pledge to essius to get into Kierkegaard and my urge to reread Bacon and read Descartes, wlel, you get the picutre. Hillman, c'est moi.

Not enough time in the day
acos I got 1.5 hours of sleep last night

You might enjoy this quote I got in an e-mail when I worked for the IRS:

It seemed the world was divided into good and bad people. The good ones slept better... while the bad ones seemed to enjoy the waking hours much more. - Woody Allen

Yee, but that's quality, not quantity.
Sleep of the righteous (or knot) and lal that.

This made me think about Abraham and how often people conclude that Abraham was without moral goodness because of the things he did in Genesis. But what do you mean by Noldo?

Apropos of which: I did not know until 0300 this morning who Ishmael was, if you can believe it. Wlokaz, I had prolly heard the story, but I'd forgotten it - you know how they censor things for lille kidlets?

Hey, spinking of which: why was the story of Lillith omitted from Christian canon? And seeing as it's referred to as "rabbinic legend" - where does it acksherly appear?

Liek, Noldo, yo.

I do. The surrounding context of the reason for the name of Ishmael is rather interesting. It's got a prophetic undertone to it that rings true. Of course, it's easy for someone to call it a self-fulfilling prophecy, too. We have to take it as we will, I suppose.

I think Lilith is mostly mentioned in the Apocrypha and Pseudepigraph, but I don't know for sure. I've seen people discuss Lilith in some LJ communities, but I haven't done any extensive reading on the subject.

From his lips to God's ears, to recycle a phrase I used a couple of weeks ago.

The Apocrypha, I'm vaguely familiar with; what is the Pseudepigraph (specifically, what is the difference between it and the books of the Apocrypha?)

I like the Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry. :-) I mostly use their website for the KJV bible, but they've got a lot of good articles on philosophy and other Jesus-related stuff.

Odd, acos I have a KJV.

A friend of mine said this evening:
i don't think of Bana as a prof atoll.
he's a workaholic who plays with computers.


Yeah, taht's aboat wright ('cept I'm more sl@><0r tronkie than true workaholic, but that's another story).

The Gospel of Thomas - yernow, there's a teunc who is an expert on that.
