[livejournal.com profile] ladymouse2 emailed me a link to flurrious.com, where you can design your own snowflake and help support The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) at the same time. Visit Flurrious to see my snowflake and to make your own!

Was very depressed last night as I totally 1) missed signing up for [livejournal.com profile] merrypirates, and 2) suddenly realized I'd forgotten to send the photography company the list of our employees for the photo shoot today. *woe* But this morning there was, among other happy things on the flist, this...

I am just familiar enough with Twitter to find this hilarious...

Pride and Twitterverse

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] fabu for alerting me to the link.

Sunday Morning Links...

Johnny Depp in Puerto Rico - still yummy.

Looking for Mr. Goodfish - column by Dave Barry from '04. I'd forgotten how funny he is. So cute!

Twelve Amazing Pencil Sculptures - the artist is...

Jennifer Maestre - and her website is beautiful, created by...

BonsaiStudios - very beautiful work here, design-wise, and they utilize...

Kuler.Adobe.Com - the most fabulous color palate tool I've ever come across! Take a look at...

this video showing some of Kuhler's features - holy cats! Where was this when I was picking paint for my front rooms?

Now I want to do a redesign of the school's website (I'm the office manager and the webmaster, don't you know).

On a totally unrelated note, [livejournal.com profile] alg mentioned she is reading A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett on Project Gutenberg, which has grown amazingly since the last time I checked it out -- they even have audiobooks available! Got to browsing there, of course, and ran across Adventures in the Rifle Brigade in the Peninsula, France, and the Netherlands from 1809 to 1815 by Captain J. Kincaid, who was a friend of that same Harry Smith that Georgette Heyer wrote about in The Spanish Bride, which tells the story of Harry and his young (very young, the LJ PTB would totally flag it) bride Juana's romance during the Napoleonic War. Here is the excerpt from Chapter 8 that tells about their first meeting and subsequent liaison...

Real Romance )

One must have a heart of stone not to be moved by such a tribute. No wonder Georgette Heyer was inspired to write her novelization of the Smiths' lives.

Must get up now, going to breakfast with [livejournal.com profile] weemonkey6 and [livejournal.com profile] gingersnapps. Later, dudes! ;-D

Some of these tabs have been open in my browser for weeks and they're just too good not to share.

Amazing pictures of Waves! I can't remember where I got that link, but big thanks to whoever posted it first.

More water in the world's largest pool!

Great post on period clothing at [livejournal.com profile] perfect_duet, an Aubrey-Maturin comm.

Prose so purple it'll have you rolling. This excerpt of A PUBLISHED WORK, OMG, was first pointed out to me by [livejournal.com profile] hereswith and then referenced by [livejournal.com profile] elspethdixon a couple of days ago. Don't neglect to check out the comments (although there are 17 pages of them now, and a lot of bad-words-of-profound-disbelief therein), and also the rest of the chapter. 0.o

Cotton's parrot is the only icon I have with a bird! What's with that?

A little boy goes to his father and asks "Daddy, how was I born?"

The father answers, "Well, son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway! Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe. We sneaked into a secluded room, where your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later a little Pop-Up appeared that said:

I'd never seen this one before, a rather hilarious interview with Geoffrey Rush, Chow Yun Fat, and Bill Nighy...

State-Tris -- like Tetris, only with states. They have Africa, Europe, France, Netherlands, and the UK, too!

Also, from BBC news, Rabies could be gone, worldwide, within a decade!

Have a good Saturday, you all. :))

-- Unknown wire artist tags workplace of [livejournal.com profile] oiseaurobyn -- so cool!

-- [livejournal.com profile] justawench has established [livejournal.com profile] potc_universe, ...for sharing information about all aspects of the POTC universe - from ships and sailing to period dress and slang - for the promotion of historical accuracy. Very much my cup of tea! Her latest post is "...about breeches, trousers, and stockings" -- [livejournal.com profile] justawench says, Being as obsessive as I am about costuming, it hurts my soul when POTC characters "unzip" their "pants.". Argh! I feel her pain. Join! Post! So much fun to research history for the improvement of Pirate!fic.

Waaaay back when, right after Curse of the Black Pearl made its debut, and long before Dead Man's Chest and At World's End were more than a twinkle in Jerry Bruckheimer's eye, a wonderful artist named P.S. Nim drew this graphic novel...

Pirates of the Caribbean and the Fountain of Youth

Many thanks to P.S. Nim for sharing her work with us and allowing me to post it at [livejournal.com profile] blackpearlsails, and to Ladymouse of Black Pearl Sails (the Yahoo Group) for scanning the pages and preparing them for posting. Comments left at [livejournal.com profile] blackpearlsails will be passed on to Ms. Nim, and will no doubt be greatly appreciated.

Now, cast your mind back four years to July of 2003...
