Taking a break from Attack of the Clones to eat a sandwich, so here's an entry while I chew:

I metaquoted Teh Snack today. You must read it. It involves a bag of margaritas.

I haven't read the first installment of catvalente's serial, but I'm hoping I'll have time after class tomorrow. It's $10 for a six-month subscription, which goes to help move her dog Sage when she and her husband leave Japan (the alternative is to leaf the doggeh, as Carlotta might say, behind). She's a great writer, and 10% of it is also going to tsunami relief, so give it a try.

Also, if you haven't friended/joined m15m, keep an eye out there--I'm going to do a round-up post of Phantom/Phantom in 15 miscellany. Oh, and I keep trying to sing along to the soundtrack, and I'll get to one of Christine's parts with the really, really high notes ("Thanks, that narrows it down"), and I'm telling you, nothing but air comes out. I'll be trying, and it's just this silent whoosh. Man, I suck. (Sadly? I can sing the Phantom's part. Movie!Phantom, anyway. Bless.) I've also been practicing my French accent in hopes of being able to record some of the parody as an experiment, once 1) I have the time and 2) my throat isn't sore, which is kind of putting a dent in things. Although I think I have Madame Giry's spiel about rescuing Erik ("With a c or with a k?") down pretty well.

And while I'm at it, here's the movie quotes meme everyone's been doing:

1. Pick one dozen movies that are ones that you have special feelings about.
2. Pick a few lines of dialogue that mean something to you.
3. As people guess the film, strike out that entry.
4. If possible, after the film is guessed, explain why that movie made the list.




1, You're passing up a swell chance, honey. Where I spit no grass grows EVER.

2. A woman should never learn to sew, and if she can she shouldn't admit to it.

3. Last week he wanted to marry her. Now he wants to have her committed.

4. I will have one mistress here... and no master.

5. But he has made many sacrifices for his family, and put away many dreams. [...] He put them in a drawer. And sometimes, late at night, we take them out and admire them. But it gets harder and harder to close the drawer... and he does. And that is why he is brave.

6. Please tell me you're not one of Toulouse's oh so talented, charmingly bohemian, tragically impoverished writers?

7. What care I for colds when there is such a man!

8. Is it true what they say? That he's some kind of vampire?

9. I think the greatest harm done the human race has been done by the poets. [...] They expect kisses to be like lyrical poems and embraces to be like Shakespearean dramas.

10. I think if you're going to kill somebody, kill them, don't stand around talking about it.

11. I will speak for you, Father. I speak for all mediocrities in the world. I am their champion. I am their patron saint.

12. I wish the wolves had eaten you! Then maybe I could've found a real husband.


ETA: Y'all are fast. Also, the_wanlorn either just won the internet or cheated like crazy. ; )
