In 2012, ebony14 resolves to...
Take evening classes in earthdawn.
Take macgeezel reading.
Go to the conventions every month.
Find a better conan.
Give some mysteries to charity.
Cut down to ten blues a day.

Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

Hmph. There is no better Conan....

So, I'm killing a few minutes until my chiropractor appointment...

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people.


"All I know is that spinners went wild and I must've copped a load when one of 'em went overspeed," said Shoblang. "But, hey, what about that kid, eh? Look at the way he's making the buggers dance! I wish I'd had him training under me! What am I saying? H could give me a few tips!"

Death looked around.


I suspect that I'm the last person who actually knows Marco Soto to read Thief of Time. Except maybe his parents, because they don't really go into that kind of book, in my impression.

Whoever wants to be, consider yourself tagged.

I yelled at a fork in your bathroom because the voices told me to.

In other news, a happy birthday to my brother in Misrule, [ profile] simacct, who appears to be quite scarce on the Intartubes these days. Kaos, you out there, man?

From [ profile] telophase:

Grab the book nearest you. Right now. Turn to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post that sentence along with these instructions in your LiveJournal. Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

"The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed."
1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Strike out the books you have no intention of ever reading, or were forced to read at school and hated.
5) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them ;-)

Cut for the sanity of others )

Shakespeare meme, ganked from [ profile] telophase.

When you see a Shakespeare quote in a journal, post one in yours.

O for a Muse of fire, that would ascend
The brightest heaven of invention!
A kingdom for a stage, princes to act,
And monarchs to behold the swelling scene!
Then should the warlike Harry, like himself,
Assume the port of Mars, and at his heels
(Leash'd in, like hounds) should famine, sword, and fire
Crouch for employment. But pardon, gentles all,
The flat unraised spirits that hath dar'd
On this unworthy scaffold to bring forth
So great an object. Can this cockpit hold
The vasty fields of France? Or may we cram
Within this wooden O the very casques
That did affright the air at Agincourt?
O, pardon! since a crooked figure may
Attest in little place a million,
And let us, ciphers to this great accompt,
On your imaginary forces work.
Suppose within the girdle of these walls
Are now confin'd two mighty monarchies,
Whose high, upreared, and abutting fronts
The perilous narrow ocean parts asunder.
Piece out our imperfections with your thoughts;
Into a thousand parts divide one man,
And make imaginary puissance;
Think, when we talk of horses, that you see them
Printing their proud hoofs i' th' receiving earth;
For 'tis your thoughts that now must deck our kings,
Carry them here and there, jumping o'er times,
Turning th' accomplishments of many years
Into an hour-glass: for the which supply,
Admit me Chorus to this history;
Who, Prologue-like, your humble patience pray,
Gently to hear, kindly to judge, our play.

Henry V, Prologue
