Today I love


Rain. It hadn't rained for almost two weeks and I was starting to get worried that winter was coming to an end but the rain graced us with its presence tonight : ). However is was rather brief and it is very dark outside so I wasn't able to get a photograph of it but I will share a wonderful one that I found in Google images and that I'm sure the rain tonight looked very similar to.


New Found Glory which is a rather delightful punk-pop band from South Florida. I am most fond of the song Too Good To Be, which over the past 3ish weeks I have played 300+ times with the rest of the album's play count coming in close to that.

There is just something about it that I keep on coming back to. Every time that I put another band on I get fed up with it pretty quickly and put New Found Glory on again - even Fall Out Boy, who I have had a long living love affair with.

Htebazile Nodsdoh

. . . is my Jedi name.

This morning, on the radio, they were asking what everyone's Chinese Olympic name was (in complete bad taste I thought but still mildly amusing) - the first three letters of the street you live on and then the first 3 letters of your mother's maiden name - and I got to thinking about all of the others, like Rock Star name and Stripper name, and I came across a website that listed a heap of different ones. I'm rather fond of my Soap Opera name - Elizabeth Lawley.

Anyway, I can't even remember the point of this post so I guess I'm just going to have to leave it there.

Oh wait, I remember now.

And I saw the Jedi one and fell completely in love.

The End.

Today I love


Dresses from Mod Cloth. Such as this wonderfully loverly Georgia Peach Dress. It truly is loverly.

and this equally loverly Marmalade Cat Dress. It truly is loverly also.

"C-3PO: He made a fair move. Screaming about it can't help you.

Han Solo: Let him have it. It's not wise to upset a Wookiee.
C-3PO: But sir, nobody worries about upsetting a droid.

Han Solo: That's 'cause droids don't pull people's arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that.

Chewbacca: Grrf.

C-3PO: I see your point, sir. I suggest a new strategy, R2: let the Wookiee win."

Is my favorite beyond favorite Star Wars quote, I even very nearly once got it printed on a t-shirt.

I was reading this post by quietmilk the other day and while I don't agree with her about not liking Star Wars - "I find your lack of faith disturbing." - , as I am a long time lover, I now have a desperate craving for some Star Wars Bubble Gum.

Flickr Favorites III

I appoligise for the lack of posting of late but would like to share with you some more of my Flickr favorites.
I kind of went crazy the other day and went on a faving spree - mainly of the same person as well. Oh well, it's always nice to appreciate good art.
