A-Z Books read meme Apr. 6th, 2008 @ 10:02 pm
Thanks to mollydot, here's a simple meme — for each letter of the English alphabet, name a book [edit: that you've read] whose title (not counting articles) begins with that letter.

bored yet?Collapse )

…it's funny how titles are distributed; I couldn't find anything for G, K, Q, X and Z, but plenty for others, such as C, H, S and T. Oh well.

You Are Bert

Extremely serious and a little eccentric, people find you loveable - even if you don't love them!

You are usually feeling: Logical — you rarely let your emotions rule you

You are famous for: Being smart, a total neat freak, and maybe just a little evil

How you live your life: With passion, even if your odd passions (like bottle caps and pigeons) are baffling to others

Room service by haiku Aug. 28th, 2006 @ 09:33 pm
What follows is all mollydot's fault — she challenged me to rewrite the conversation in her posting in haiku. Although she was probably joking, I couldn't resist. And damn, now my brain is wired in haiku so I cannot read anything or say or write anything without counting the syllables first. Wibble.


[Room Service]: (click) "good morning to you / this is room service- how may / we help you today?"

[Guest]: "oh! sorry, I thought / it was room service I called / is it really you?"

[Room Service]: "yes! very good morning / this is room service, it is / do you want something?"

[Guest]: "ah yes, indeed, um / I'd like some bacon and eggs / yes I really would"

[Room Service]: "tell me please, how would / you like them done, will you? / yes, we need to know"

[Guest]: "I beg your pardon? / I seem not to understand / I am confused"

[Room Service]: "how would you like them / done - eggs fried, boiled or poached? / all of those are good"

[Guest]: "the eggs, oh, the eggs / how do I like them, do I? / ah, scrambled please, yes"

[Room Service]: "how would you like the / bacon done - is crispy good / or don't you like that?"

[Guest]: "my bacon? oh that / - yes, crispy will do just fine / yes, I think it will"

[Room Service]: "Very good. And how about / some toast - would you like some toast? / everybody likes toast"

[Guest]: "What? toast? what is that? / I have never heard of toast / it sounds very strange"

[Room Service]: "Some toast. Surely, dear guest / you would like some toast, please do? / toast very nice, alright!"

[Guest]: "um, well perhaps so / but really? I am not sure / I don't understand"

[Room Service]: "No? You wouldn't like / some yummy toast for breakfast? / you must be crazy!"

[Guest]: "I feel really bad / about this, but why on earth / must I have toast now?"

[Room Service]: "Toast! No toast today? / Why not? How about English / muffin with butter?"

[Guest]: "English muffin! Ah! / You were pushing toast! Very / well, English muffin!"

[Room Service]: "Butter. Do you want / some butter with it, on it / near it? Or jam, even"

[Guest]: "No no, thank you - just / put some butter on the side / that would be quite nice"

[Room Service]: "I beg your pardon / please say what it is that you / want. Is it butter?"

[Guest]: "Yes, butter, just put / the butter on the side please / It's complicated"

[Room Service]: "Finally, to drink / would you like some coffee now? / it is very good

[Guest]: "Sorry? Why are you making / this so complicated, hmm? / I just want breakfast"

[Room Service]: "Do you want coffee / then, or tea, even, with milk / or something else - chai?"

[Guest]: "Sigh. Just coffee for / me, please. Is that alright or / are we done yet? Please!"

[Room Service]: "Just a second now / scrambled egg, crispy bacon / muffin and coffee?"

[Guest]: "Yes yes, just bring me / some breakfast, maximum speed / if that's possible"

[Room Service]: "Thank you, thank you, dear / customer we have, thank you / dear dear customer"

[Guest]: "Oh my goodness - now / what could it be next - more food / or more damn haiku"

[Room Service]: "Thank you, thank you, dear / customer we have, thank you / dear dear customer"

[Guest]: "ah, oh, I'm very / sorry - you are very welcome / now bring me my food!"

From http://www.electricnews.ie/frontpage/news-9679512.html :

"Irish bloggers can face legal action for defaming people online, according to a media law expert from McCann FitzGerald's Litigation Department in Dublin. A senior lawyer at the firm is advising bloggers and people who post comments on their sites that anonymity is no defence against legal action."

Somebody with no name told me that I was an idiot. Should I sue, or was I dreaming? :)

aside: what is the definition of defamation, and how does Irish law apply there? And what legal protections do we have for free speech, satire, and lampoonery?
