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.
( Unfortunately I couldn't do several movies I love, because y'all can already recite them chapter and verseCollapse )
