I've been feeling tremendously motivated to do creative things lately, but strangely not so motivated to study security laws. It's...it's like I'm a stranger to myself!

Must really get back to doing massage regularly, but not until I've worked out the nasty neck and shoulder issues that have been plaguing me lately. A word of wisdom to body workers; get massages, don't just give them! Your body is your toolkit, and it needs regular maintenance. I haven't had a full massage in a year, but that will change this weekend. Oh, yes.

E and I have been watching Rose Red this week (it's being shown as part of the Sci Fi channel's "We Got Nothin'" month). I don't know how close the mini-series is to the book, but it sure seems like a tribute to Hill House. In fact, Shirley Jackson is even mentioned.

I've never been a big fan of Julian Sands, but I really like him here. I think age has improved him, as it so often does with actors. E points out that he would have made a brilliant Constantine (*sobs for lost opportunities*).

E's remark about Sands' character's demonstration of his abilities: "Oh, look. He's scrying in his beer again." *rimshot*

OK, here's a question. I'm too lazy to make a poll for you to fill out, so just comment if you have an opinion. Should my new Ghawazee coat be in shades of red and orange or purple? And should I go with velvet or some kind of brocade? I'm stumped.

I think red and orange; I'm basing that entirely on the time you dyed your hair the color of autumn and it was so beautiful. Implies that those are your colors. Also, brocade is nicer, I think, but velvet more comfy to move in.

When my folks were massage therapists (they have now become social workers. if they were in a movie everyone would roll their eyes and say it was ridiculous) they would do trades with other massage therapists to get regular massages. (That's how I got a massage every week in my adolescence... one does not get a massage from a parent, but from a parent's colleague. [did I appreciate this? did I realize how wonderful a weekly massage was? nooooo of course not. I was sixteen; it was like going to the doctor]) I bet you can find a MT who would give you a massage every other day in return for a massage ever other day. Also keeps your hand in.

Red and orange, firegirl. :) Instinct says brocade, though I like the idea of the velvet, too.

I hope you feel better soon, hon! I can sympathize with neck/shoulder issues!

Red and orange in a combination of brocades and velvets.

depends on whether or not you're actually going to match it w/ the mask or not. if so, i'd say burgundys and silver, and maybe stick to velvet w/ a little bit of metallic trim? although brocade might work, too.

if not, reds & oranges, definitely brocade. >:D appropriately enough, you look fantastic in fire colors!

oh, also, back stuff: you probably already know this, but i'll say it again: find somebody nearby who you know does good work, and see if you can exchange massages at least once or twice a month. it'll be a mutually beneficial arrangement! >:D

Make 2! One red & orange brocade for Beltaine and a purple velvet for faire.

I was going to say what kitteblue said - make TWO!

bucking the trend, i vote for purple velvet, even though i have no idea what a Ghawazee coat is.

any chance i could pay you to make me a cloak?
