when my husband and i got married (back in the dark ages), we kept our names. the next january when we filed our income taxes, i got a rather condescending letter from the state office telling me that i'd written my own name wrong on our form (i.e., i wrote my own last name rather than his). when i wrote back to tell them that i hadn't changed my name, they asked me to prove it.

it was sort of bizarre, having to prove you didn't do something, but there you have it.

switching gears, karl is getting all kinds of positive interest in the early peeks at his star trek role. BEWARE OF SPOILERS AT THESE LINKS. i just can't wait to see this movie, and i don't care if anyone but bones and nero are in it. perhaps there could be kissing, too. kissing would be fine, yes. ;)

i've participated in my first [livejournal.com profile] lotrips_remix this summer, and the fics were posted this afternoon. i am blown. away. by what my amazing mystery author has been able to do with one of my ficlets. it's so visual and romantic and so very viggo. i'm all a-melt and so happy.

the fics are here; i hope you go read! the authors' identities are secret for a week to give people time to guess who.

***

also, what a great idea: [livejournal.com profile] slashreq_icons is a new comm for requesting (and filling requests for) slashy icons of your favorite pairing! i just joined and am already loving it. more slash in icons can only be a good thing. *g*

***

last, i've taken over as mod at the [livejournal.com profile] karl_stillness icon comm. i'd love to see you there, whether you make icons or just want to enjoy them and vote for your favorites. :)

this week i've done my garage and about 1/3 of my house, so i'm on a roll...

i'm going to try some changes in how i use this journal. instead of doing a second journal as a fic journal (so not prolific enough for that, i think, and also don't want to give lj any more of my money/support than i already do), i'm going to experiment with a filter for personal entries. if we chat at all, you'll be included on personal posts (not that i make a lot of those anyway). the fic and graphics will remain as they are, open to all friends.

i'll also be making some cuts soon. if you feel i've goofed, my email address is on my profile page; feel free to contact me. :)

all from mahatma gandhi.

In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth.

Honest differences are often a healthy sign of progress.

Hate the sin, love the sinner.

One needs to be slow to form convictions, but once formed they must be defended against the heaviest odds.

Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.

You must be the change you want to see in the world.

i can't. stop. listening to viggo singing the tango. even when i manage to stagger away from the computer, it continues in my head, including while i'm asleep. am considering learning enough spanish so i can sing along with him, since currently, i sing this:

Te quiero
duh duh duh duh duh dum duhmmmmmm
buh buh buh buah aaaaaahhhh
Te adoro
duh duh duh duh duh dum duhmmmmmm
buh buh buh buah aaaaaahhhh

etc, until the last line… and then

Una blah blah siniguaaaaaaaaalll

and then i pass out for a bit, which is getting painful, but not enough to quit replaying. hubby's stopped running to check on me when he hears me thump to the floor, though. should I be concerned?

i know viggo is singing for his team, but i have no idea what the words mean. not that it matters. he could be sharing fond memories of obnoxiously snapping girls' bra straps in sixth grade or proclaiming the wonders of smoked sausage and that song would still get me into bed.

i think it's time for a repost of this picture, don't you?
