Tinkerings on my blog. . .


The Goethe Monument, by Carl Gustav Carus

Hey everyone! I've put together a playlist of a few of my favourite Christmas carols. You can see it on my sidebar, next to the Shoutbox. So, I now have two Playlists - the Christmas one, and the "other" one, which you can see if you scroll down to very bottom of my blog. Oh, and just to warn you - at the beginning of "O Holy Night" there is some loud clapping - so you might want to turn your speakers down just before that track begins, lest you be frightened half out of your wits like I was!

Also, I added to my sidebar my result from a fun quiz I found recently - "What LOTR character are you?" My result was Arwen. I can remember doing another similar quiz a few months ago, and I was told that I was Samwise Gamgee. . . so who knows which LOTR character I am really most like!

I have also *finally* updated my Shelfari widget - have a look to see what I'm reading at the moment.

Last night we all went for a drive through town to see all the Christmas lights. There weren't quite as many as there were last year, and I was feeling rather tired, but we all had a good time. I think I'm finally beginning to get into the Christmas spirit - up until now I just haven't thought about Xmas that much, but now it's starting to sink in that Christmas is just a few days away - and yes, I do believe I am starting to get a little bit excited about it. 

So--have a merry and blessed Christmas! And in the meantime, enjoy the weekend. ;-)

By the way - no particular meaning is meant to be implied by the painting I included above - I just felt that it seemed to communicate the way I felt while listening to some of the Christmas songs from the that playlist I mentioned. . . silly, I know. :-)

When I took a Lord of the Rings quiz I came out as Elrond. *heavy sigh*

Hey, there. :) I found your blog via a comment you left on A Maiden's Wreath. :)

Hi Delaney! Oh well, Elrond isn't too bad - better than Gollum, for instance! :P

By the way, I LOVE your profile picture! :-)

When I took the quiz a couple of months ago I was Galadreil. I wonder what I would be now? :) I finished "Wuthering Heights" yesterday. It got better, but it is still not one of my favorites.

Congratulations on getting all the way through Wuthering Heights!! :D No it's not one of my favourites, either, but it's still worth reading, IMO.

Sorry, I'm text messaging illiterate. What does "IMO" mean? :)

In My Opinion! ;-) Sorry - I was being lazy - I had a cookie in one hand so I could only type one-handed. . .
