Happy New Year to all, and to all a good night.

Or good new year.

Whatever.

What is your must-see holiday movie?

"A Christmas Carol" the 1992 version with Patrick Stewart as Scrooge. My absolute favorite version of A Christmas Carol (though "Muppet Christmas Carol" comes in 2nd.)

Vegan baking=fail
Death Wish

It's the week before Thanksgiving break and the undergrads will be stressed to the max and running on fumes. So I thought I would bake something (fruit bread). But when I baked cookies for Halloween, one of the students mentioned that she was vegan and couldn't eat them (she didn't want offend me if I noticed she avoided them).

I felt bad, 'cause I hate it when someone is unable to eat hardly anything at a meal because they have special dietary restrictions. My mom has always striven to make sure that any guest we have has had plenty to eat--no matter their dietary requirements--and it's something I try to do as well. So, I decided to look for vegan recipes online and try one of them.

Your result for The Harry Potter Husband Test...

Mrs. Lupin

Your perfect HP man is Remus Lupin.

You like a nice, kind guy with a bit of a fierce streak and you don't mind if he comes damaged. Sure, he may take some convincing since his self-esteem's so low, but once you win him over, you know he's yours for life. Unless of course he has an attack of "I'm not good enough" and runs away, but luckily he's also good at making friends who will push him back into line if necessary.

Writer's Block: 9/11

Where were you?
didn't really think it was terrorism until 3rd period (Earth Science for me--we were studying topographic maps) when they announced the second tower had been hit.
At that point they announced that they opened up one of the largest class rooms and said anyone in study hall/lunch was allowed to go up and watch the news coverage. Mind you, most of the teachers let us watch the new in class. The only ones who didn't was my math teacher and gym teacher, who wanted to give us a respite from the coverage.






Just got back from performing in a 9/11 memorial concert. We performed Mozart's Requem as a part of a Rolling Requem (60 chiors across the US performing Mozart's Requem, starting in New Hampshire and ending in Hawaii). It was...a very beautiful concert. We had an essay contest; the winner and 2nd runner up read their essays before the singing and several first responders came to the concert (processed in) and were given a standing ovation by the (large) crowed.

I finally got around to posting my "CSI Cookies" from Halloween on Deviantart: http://deathwarmedover4.deviantart.com/

Incidentally, this is why my mom is usually cautious about letting me decorate cookies at Christmas time...or at least checks over the cookies that we send into the office/to family : )

ThunderCats Reboot

M'kay, so just yesterday I discovered--to great Squee!--that Cartoon Network was doing a reboot of ThunderCats. For those who never saw the original ThunderCats, it's a cartoon that follows the exploits of a group of elite cat people (think Andrew Loyd Webber's Cats, only more 80's Glam Rock) who have fled their destroyed homeworld and found themselves on "Third Earth" where they try to make a home for themselves as they make allies, fight the forces of evil, and dispense morals with the subtly of falling anvils. It very much runs on narm charm and the last time  Iwatched an episode as an adult  I was rolling my eyes so hard they almost fell out of their sockets, but it has serious nostalgia value. So I was excited to see them reboot it--could be cool, right?

The only 2 good things I can say about it is that 1. The character of Snarf cannot talk (so far at least, and he's cuter! :3 ) and 2. The actor who provided the voice for Lion-o in the original cartoon provided the voice of Reboot!Lion-o's father. Nice : )
