Fool's Wisdom

Aug 21

So I’ve taken another long leave of absence.

Man, I have no idea how all of you young people (who are, incidentally, even now ON MY LAWN) manage to handle school and social media, including Tumblr, at the same time.  I went back to TAFE (that’s community college, basically, Americans) several weeks ago, and I have discovered several things in that time:

1. Apparently the same part of the brain that’s responsible for organizing and reblogging ten zillion Tumblr posts a day is responsible for even attempting to do schoolwork.

2. There’s this thing called Steam, and — get this — they sell you video games over the Internet.  You don’t even have to leave your house.  (It is a really good thing no one told me about these people sooner.  It’s entirely possible my body would even now be fused with this desk and keyboard.)  I’ve been spending all my spare time gaming — I do not care what anyone says, the entire Lego Star Wars franchise is the awesomest thing ever — since discovering Steam via my saintly wife, who has had to put up with me rediscovering Star Wars fandom (my very first fandom, incidentally — as in, from when I was four or five on) in the bargain.

3. Being sick sucks.  Apparently you can learn you have diabetes and have the world’s worst flu in the same few weeks, which seems unfair.  I honestly don’t think an illness has made me this miserable since the chicken pox when I was a little kid.

4. Damn, I really miss you guys.  I’ll try to make a proper comeback soon.

WHAT TUMBLR USER DO U SHIP ME WITH

I’m not gonna lie here, elidyce, I kind of ship you with me.

…on the other hand, given that our tenth wedding anniversary is coming up in September — in almost exactly a month, in fact — I am guessing that seeing this will not surprise you.

Middle Earth Meme: 3 RACES
2) Nazgûl

And one by one, … they fell under the thraldom of the ring that they bore and under the domination of the One, which was Sauron’s. And they became for ever invisible save to him that wore the Ruling Ring, and they entered into the realm of shadows. The Nazgûl were they, the Ringwraiths, the Enemy’s most terrible servants; darkness went with them, and they cried with the voices of death.

Las Pozas, Mexico

Las Pozas dates back to 1947 when Edward James was living in Mexico, in semi-exile. Deep within the rainforests of Mexico, seven hours outside of Mexico City, lies a magical hidden gem that very few have had the pleasure of stumbling across. It’s called Las Pozas and it is a sculpture garden, tucked away from prying eyes and at one with nature. It was created by a man named Edward James, an eccentric man who spent millions to create this magical wonderland that’s comprised of 20 acres of natural waterfalls and mountain springs.
