Netflix movie Telstar: The Joe Meek Story )

Nothing much happened this week because I kept getting up in the morning and going back to bed an hour later to sleep most of the day away. I have no idea why I was so sleepy. I did, however, at one point make the best chicken stock I’ve ever made.

Meme, cause everybody’s doin’ it.

Book #8 - Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bront
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë


I don't think I have to say much about a classic like this. Here's my short summary anyway:

Jane Eyre gets sent to an orphanage by her ill-meaning aunt. After growing up, she applies for a job as a governess. Jane immediately falls in love with her employer, Mr. Rochester. But not all is as it seems at Thornfield Hall.

I hadn't read it before, and when I saw the adaptation with Toby Stephens, I wanted to know how it differs from the book. I threw out another book from my challenge (Mirage by Matt Ruff) and added Jane Eyre instead. It think it's only slightly cheating, since it's been on my bookshelf for ages, so definitely part of Mount TBR in that sense. ;)

cut for rambling, and 'spoilers', if you can call it that, of a 200-year-old book )

Just not my thing. 2 out of 5 stars.

The story of the Lost colony was one of the first things I remember learning about in school. There is always interest in this unsolved historical mystery and recently, there has been even more interest. I ran across this article from Robeson County that claims that Virginia Dare is buried there.

This Is My Son, In Whom I Am Well Pleased

Do take a look. He's a handsome one, he is. )

My son turned 33 on Friday. I told him I loved him, and I told him not to get crucified, because that's the kind of disrespectful lapsed Christian-type joke that he appreciates (and hence the title.) We both snickered. We're both probably going to hell. 

He is wonderful. He is talented, creative, gentle, empathetic, kind, handsome. He sings, he writes radio plays. He writes songs for pantos. He is hard working, loving, and fannish. Oh, so very fannish. 

(And yes, he's enraged and frustrated me over the years. What child hasn't done that to his or her mother?)

He is, quite simply, Andy. I love him, and I am so very lucky he is my son.

You, 
[personal profile] owlboy , are amazing. You are a polymath, a wild person, a writer, an artist, and someone who would be mad, bad, and dangerous to know, if you weren't not bad, and a delight to know. I'm glad I met you here on the Intarwebz, and here's to a very, very good year for you. And I hope your birthday was fantastic.

Late In The Day Birthday Wishes

I am so very lucky to know all of you out there in journal land, and two of the people I am particularly happy to have met celebrated birthdays today. What with cat purgatory, that almost slipped by me. 

[personal profile] a_phoenixdragon  is an adventurer in life, taking on journeys, challenges, setbacks and battles that many people would find impossible to undertake or survive. She is also one of those remarkable humans who can find beauty and good in the tiny corners where many of us would forget to look for them. She is creative, funny, a lover of knowledge, a woman who fights for the people she loves, and somehow finds time to create; she has never let her muse too far out of her sight, even if there are times she thinks the creature has escaped. I am so lucky to have met her in RL, and can report that she is one of the sweetest people I've ever met. And she talks more than I do - which is so cool! My dear, I hope your loved ones showed you how much they love you, and gave you a very good birthday. And may the coming year be better than you could dream of!

[personal profile] editrx  is another adventurer who has dealt with challenge, setback, and the fuckwittery of the world with more bravery and determination than I could ever imagine. In the midst of all that, she's generous with her time. She's funny, fannish, extremely good at what she does, and if I were the kind of fairy godmother I wish I could be, I would wave a wand and make sure that this happy birthday wish was accompanied by more than friendship and respect. May the coming year be thrice as good as you want it to be!

But wait, there's more!

The remarkable 
[personal profile] elisi , who celebrates on Oct. 22, is someone for whom I have so much respect that it's impossible to truly describe it. She writes fiction and non-fiction, meta and life observations, while raising a family of remarkable young women, and staying in touch with the world with intelligence and grace. Thank you for being you, and thank you for broadening my world in so very many ways, all through your love of a madman with a box, one that's bigger on the inside. If I am ever on your side of the Atlantic, it would be my honor to take you out for a drink of whatever might be your pleasure. Until then? Continue being awesome, and have a fantastic birthday.

Just an alibi sentence for me in the morning, I've been too tired for more since my MIL left.
Edit 1: forgot that I finished the edit of my orig fic and sent it out after I got the second round of beta during the day.

Edit 2: I just noticed that since yesterday, the crossposts to LJ don't work any longer as the entry has become too large. Since nobody is reporting the tally on LJ, does anybody mind if I continue this on DW only?

My novel might changed from "mixed fantasy" genre to "urban fantasy", or just "YA fiction". The characters are staying the same in any case, though; I've gotten really invested in them already! So I wanted to share some information on them. Mostly just personality outlines. It's all under the cut!

Ah ha ha.

Halloween # 21: Theodosia Burr

I remember reading My Theodosia by Anya Seton when I was in high school and it fascinated me. Another true mystery story...

~~

The Dramatic Life and Mysterious Death of Theodosia Burr
From Atlas Obscura
The fate of Aaron Burr’s daughter remains a topic of contention.
by Hadley Meares
October 07, 2016

The Nag's Head Portrait )

Today the legend of Theodosia lives on. The Nags Head Portrait now hangs in the Lewis Walpole Library at Yale. Her ghost is said to haunt her plantation The Oaks, the Outer Banks, Richmond Hill and Bald Head Island, where it is said her spirit is chased by three headless pirates. In the late 19th and early 20th century the mystery was spun into several novels and countless magazine articles. Many little girls were named after her—including Theodosia Burr Goodman, who would become famous as the silent screen vamp Theda Bara. Her story was a favorite of poets, including Robert Frost, whose poem Kitty Hawk includes the line:
Did I recollect how the wreckers wrecked Theodosia Burr off this very shore? T’was to punish her, but her father more.




But perhaps the impact of the mystery of Theodosia is best summed up by her friend Margaret Blennerhasset in her poem On A Friend Who Was Supposed To Have Suffered A Shipwreck:
And now I wander all alone, Nor heed the balmy breeze, but list the ring dove’s tender moan, and think upon the seas.

I've been considering doing Nano this year, even though I haven't done any meaningful writing in a lot longer than I care to admit. So, I'd like to see if my muse can be teased into some fun practice. I'm asking for help in the form of some prompts. They can be one word prompts, first line prompts, or "5 times" prompts. For now, I'd like to stick with the following pairings/no pairings:

SG1: Sam/Janet
SG1: Janet/Kris
SG1: Janet/OFC
SG1: Janet - no pairing

X-Files: Dana/Jess
X-Files: Dana/Nicole
X-FIles: Dana/OFC

I might not manage to catch up with comments over the next days, and just post the daily entry. Tomorrow's my mother-in-law's birthday, so we'll be first going out for dinner with her, then we have coffee at our place with my mother joining us, and in the evening I need to cook and bake for friends coming to visit on Sunday for a Munchkin and Cards Against Humanity half day. I've spent most of today with shopping, baking, and cleaning, and still have to clean the bathroom. *g* At least most of the house is clean enough and it smells deliciously of apple cake.
A handful of words from this morning from me so far; I might add a few more later, depending on how tired I'll be.
