Time:6:01 pm.
Mood: thoughtful.
Oh, who was in the groove this morning? This girl, baby. This girl. I love the new navy skirt suit. That's 2 for 2 with it - Career Fair and then this interview. I'll be working in Gov. Romney's Press Office 3 days a week next semester. BOOYAH! :-D (btw, thanks amidala2 for your advice. it definitely helped the groove)

So I came home and did some work, studied, and checked email. The Troy trailer is now available. Suddenly I realized as excited as I am about this movie, it may be one of those ones that I get pissed at b/c they're going to mess up The Iliad so much. Then I thought, "Gee, you read The Iliad in 5th grade for Odyssey of the Mind. How much do you remember?" So yes, I began rereading it online. And it's funny, because as things happen in the real book I remember our 5th grade interpretation... Mike Schamann as Paris (later in the skit he played Zeus, too) and Julie Brylinski as Aphrodite and Jess Bissett as Hera (I was Athena)... Julie chanting "I wo-on, I wo-on I wo-on!" when Paris had to decide between Aphrodite, Hera, and Athena as to who was the most beautiful... Sara Schonour as Homer, who did our own original poem... we reenacted 'Zeus calls a meeting of the gods and goddesses and tells them to end the war' - that'd be in Book 20 for those of you keeping score at home... I still remember lines - "Daddy didn't help me either!" "Who will join Hera, Hephasteus, Hermes, and me?"-we played Athena as the spoilt daughter, which was fun cause I got to whine a lot... and then we sang "Take Me Out to the Battlefield" to close the skit...
Take me out to the battlefield
Take me out to the war
Buy me some olives and fetta cheese
Greeks or Trojans choose who you please
And it's root, root root for your favorite team
Win or lose it's the same
It's not if you win or lose, it's how you play the game -TIME (because every OM skit ended with TIME)
Oh boy. Hilariousness. Oh boy oh boy. I wonder if any of this has crossed Mike, Jess, Julie's minds? Or Sara's? Or Nick and Melissa, our non-long-term skit members? Like I almost want to randomly call people and be like, "let's all go see this together. because we read it together." But since I haven't talked to most of those people in years, that might be strange. (Nick and I did go to a dance together way back junior year of HS - he was my emergency date) I wish I had a good tape of that performance. Like our Worlds tape. All I have is a crappy one from before regionals when we performed at South Davis.

The point is, wow, good memories of reading The Iliad in friggin FIFTH GRADE. Thank goodness we had my dad the english teacher or we never would have made it through. Woah memories. Woah.

Time:10:34 am.
Mood: confused.
Music:POTC soundtrack.
Hello LOTR buddies
Anyone know the difference between the 3 soundtracks that are being released for ROTK?

I understand that 1 has 3 CDs

What's the difference between the ROTK Enhanced ($14.99 on amazon.com) that comes out Nov 25 and the ROTK Enhanced Limited Edition ($26.99 on amazon.com) that comes out December 9th?

Anyone?

crossposted a whole mess of places - sorry if you get this a bunch of times

Please join! It's very flexible, lots of icons to be shown - LOTR icons, LOTR actor icons, LOTR actors in other movies icons, people who acted with LOTR in other movies, etc...

Time:9:45 am.
Mood: amused.
Amusing little stuff I found at http://www.thelastlaugh.net/



Men of Gondor:
Probably not very reliable, always off fighting some sort of war. Fairly manly looking in armor however.
Chick rating:

Excellent: for a booty call.
Fair: one night stand.
Poor: in the commitment arena.
Good: for taking as dates to weddings and the crowning of kings.

Wizards:

Not as bad as you would think. If looks don’t mean anything to you, most are dead useful in obtaining extra help to build things around the house or. say, to mass an army, depending on whether you are suffering from That Time Of The Month. They live forever so commitment is, refreshingly, not an issue. Just be ready for lots of travel and some differences in opinion on local politics.

Chick rating:

Excellent: in the commitment arena.
Poor: one night stands aren’t their thing.
Fair: for a booty call, as long as they are in town or not in the middle of plotting to Destroy the World of Men.
Good: for taking as dates to weddings and crowning of kings, depending upon their politics of course.

Elves:

Lust, lust, lust, you tarty thing YOU. Elves win the Middle Earth date of choice hands down. You can take them anywhere, they tend to live a long time, look good after a wild night of sex or battle, and all your friends will be green with envy.

Chick rating:

Excellent: in the commitment arena, they honor their alliances, even if they are Ages old.
Excellent: one night stands aren’t a bad alternative if you are sluttish by nature.
Excellent: for a booty call, nothing like an elf to make a fat thigh day just melt away.
Excellent: for taking as dates to weddings and crowning of kings, could anyone look hotter at your side? We think not.

Dwarves:

If you are vertically challenged or very self-confident, then this is the Middle Earth Species for you. Loyal, staunch, proud, Dwarves make Excellent Providers. A lot of pretty women, with nothing else going for them, could do much worse than hooking up with a dwarf, that much is for certain.

Chick rating:

Excellent: in the commitment arena, they will stand by their commitments even when up against overwhelming odds.
Fair: one night stands aren’t their thing but they try and please by nature.
Excellent: for a booty call but they can get a tad bit possessive, just be sure you have The Talk beforehand.
Good: for taking as dates to weddings and crowning of kings. Your friends won’t be jealous. Until they get a load of the rock on your ring finger of course.

Orcs:

At heart, aren’t most males really just fighting the urges of their inner Uruk-Hai? Not good for your self-esteem and they tend to be very argumentative. Fights won’t end well so don’t nag if they are out late partying with the boys. On the plus side, running one over with your brother’s new SUV when the scum cheats on you won’t land you in the slammer.

Chick rating:

Poor: in the commitment arena, one female is just like another to them.
Excellent: one night stands are their thing, they are male pigs at heart.
Fair: for a booty call but only because they have plenty of…stamina. Bring a large paper bag.
Out of the question: for taking as dates to weddings and crowning of kings. Your parents will never forgive you. Don’t even think about doing it just for the shock value.

Riders of Rohan:

Delish. They tend to marry women who have trouble keeping their make- up on straight but aside from that, think of all those hours on horseback and those well-muscled thighs…plus, oh where were we now…oh yes, most are blond and hunky and that’s never a bad thing now is it? A Rider of Rohan also can be the perfect Rebound Relationship after you and that horrid Uruk-Hai finally Break Things Off For Good. Think of the Rohirrim as the Boy Candy of Middle Earth.

Chick rating:

Excellent: in the commitment arena, they treat their pets well now don’t they?
Fair: one night stands aren’t their thing but you might try that: come to my rescue because my nasty ex boyfriend the Orc is bothering me again act. It’s been known to work before.
Excellent: for a booty call but you might have trouble getting them to see the need. Or the point. Try the Orc rescue scenario listed above.
Good: for taking as dates to weddings and crowning of kings. They clean up well, look smashing in armor and are courtly by nature. Date hint: Never, EVER make a Rider of Rohan choose between you and his horse. You won’t win.

Hobbits:

Always an interesting date choice. If you can get over the height thing (reference Dwarves) then you might do well for yourself by choosing yourself a Hobbit as a beau. They are always up for a party, love a good time and do well in pubs…its rather like fraternity boys all over again, isn’t it?

Excellent: in the commitment arena, they are loyal to a fault and will do their best to see a relationship through to the bitter end. Poor: one night stands aren’t their preference but you might have better luck if you lure them with promise of a second breakfast.
Fair: for a booty call but only if you ply them with lots of ale.
Good: for taking as dates to weddings and crowning of kings. Your friends won’t be overtly jealous. In addition, Hobbits tend to be well connected politically speaking which is always good for getting the future kiddies into Good Schools.

I watched The Bumblebee Flies Anyway today... I'm not sure I liked it. I mean, I do. But... it was confusing. If you've seen this flick, let's get into a comments discussion.

After watching the TRL performance (which I missed but just found on KazaaLite) with the Fellowship, I have to say I think Lij is picking up a British accent there for a bit. Amusing.

Subject:Hmmm...
Time:8:44 pm.
Mood: happy.
Music:ash wednesday movie.
So I did it. Went to Blockbuster and bought Ash Wednesday. However, I am proud of myself that I bought the video and not the DVD - a whole four dollars difference in the used video/dvd sale. There weren't really any fabulous features, just a director's commentary, and since I didn't know if I liked the movie, I just went with the cheap video.

It's pretty good so far - it's 23 minutes into it. Lij is hot and adorable in the first scene, but I'm just waiting for him to come back. However, I admit that it's also a pretty interesting little independent movie. Esp. if you're fascinated by the small Catholic parish culture that is slowly dying in cities (as I am). Amusing reflections for life.

Anyway, yeah. I also ordered Bumblebee Flies Again, because I've rented it about six times from Blockbuster since it came out a while ago (I love Rachel and Lij, so it's a fabulous flick for me even though cheesy).

Bout it for now. Back to AW.
