Bookchallenge round-up  
I can't seem to get the hang of keeping track of these challenges. Since my last entry was once again in May I can't remember what I read this year, especially the ones that I borrowed from the school library, but these are the ones that I could either remember or could piece together from my Amazon account. HTML

I left out re-reads if I read them more than once this year and some books by Terry Pratchett, and as always everything I read for school.

Music and moustaches  
I wish I were done for today. But no, there's still the oral report waiting to be finished and that other oral report and I haven't heard back from some of the people who volunteered yet.

Ever since I found this dub of 'We Didn't Start the Fire' set in Stormwind ) I've rediscovered Billy Joel, especially:

Thin And Happy  
Via [livejournal.com profile] sf_drama . That community is full of win sometimes.

The eight "equally important" parts of  how thinness and happiness can be achieved:

1. Honesty
2. Physical appearance
3. Exercise
4. Mindset
5. Sex
6. Food
7. Men
8. Faith

You say it as though it's a bad thing...  
"A new way of thinking"? Now, we can't be having with that, indeed.



Best laugh I had since NOM's Gathering Storm ad with their rainbow coalition - the ads this organisation makes increase my suspicion that they are an organisation of IRL trolls who are secretly supporting LGBT people.

The Fantasy Novelist's Exam  

I found this today:

The Fantasy Novelist's Exam, by David J. Parker
Additional Material By Samuel Stoddard

Ever since J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis created the worlds of Middle Earth and Narnia, it seems like every windbag off the street thinks he can write great, original fantasy, too. The problem is that most of this "great, original fantasy" is actually poor, derivative fantasy. Frankly, we're sick of it, so we've compiled a list of rip-off tip-offs in the form of an exam. We think anybody considering writing a fantasy novel should be required to take this exam first. Answering "yes" to any one question results in failure and means that the prospective novel should be abandoned at once.
 

The exam: my last NaNoWriMo novel scored 4/75. )

Bingo!  
Some good things do come of reading texts for education courses. I proudly present: the education buzzword bingo!

Create your own buzzword bingo cards here.

Also, feel free to add education buzzwords. I realise some of these are not really that inventive, but I found it hard to come up with 25 buzzwords, after all.

I am torn between "OMG! How awesome" and "OMG! How scary".

If they really do that, I am so going to buy that.

Bad joke  
Ok, ok, this is only funny because I have been awake for 36 hours and had just survived six hours of kindergarten - when it struck me - you know what?

LORD VOLDEMORT IS A RETRIBUTION PALA!

Why?

Because he has to let others do the damage for him?
Because whenever he tries to deal damage he needs to apply himself to the services of the guild healer instantly?

No!

Well, not only.

Because he placed Nagini in a friggin' BUBBLE!!!!

That absolutely killed me when I thought of that while cooking my lunch. I had to share with my brother, who raised an appreciative eye-brow at the giggling heap that was his sister and then launched into this great big explanation on why he could also be a mage and how this and that class was more likely but no, no, I was quite right, a retribution paladin he could be.

Awesome.

My brain is melting. Will now go and get some sleep.
And then finally go and catch up on all your entries! I really haven't been around much, reading, for the past weeks. Sorry about that. And I have to find out what that recent LJ suckage was all about.

Gummy Bears  
Do you remember these guys )?

Singing along is fun, of course, but its even more fun to watch them in other languages, such as German, Latin Spanish, Japanese, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, French aaaand, the one you absolutely have to watch, Swedish )


Let's hear it: Hipp hurra!
För här kommer bumbibjörnarna
studsar fram igenom sagorna
och vi får följa med!!

I absolutely LOVED that one. Seriously, that's the greatest version EVER.

Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] angie_21_237, this is for you: )
