Subject:NZ Article about Cillian Murphy
Time:6:22 pm.
It seems to me that Cillian is becoming more and more frank in his interviews. . or maybe he's just becoming sick and tired of the same questions over and over again. Who knows. Anyway, he's the article for those who are interested.

Subject:New Life
Time:9:35 pm.
Mood: grateful.
Finally, I've had time to update this journal since I moved. Man, starting a new job, getting a new apartment and making new friends in another country is pretty tough! But I finally feel now that I've settled down a bit. Life is less hectic and I kind of have a routine (sort of).
Now that I have some breathing room to actually clear my head and think, I have to say that this has been the best opportunity of my life. I really love having a more laid-back lifestyle and taking time to just stop and smell the roses. Okay, that was a corny line, but I can't think of anything clever to say at this moment. My brain is fried from work.
I do wonder, though, why this opportunity came my way, like what is the cosmic, metaphysical reason why this happened. I mean, I never even dreamed in my entire life of living here. It's so strange. I have to believe I came here for some greater purpose. It's got to have some kind of meaning, right?
Well, I guess for now, I'm content not knowing what the purpose is.
On a side note, I'm going to donate money to the Red-Cross for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Now that I'm living in the Caribbean, I do worry about hurricanes so I really hope and pray that everyone in Louisiana and Mississippi is okay.

I did see from the network for good website that they had a pretty comprehensive site on how to help hurricane victims:

Subject:DL, DLR, DLA, and all things regarding D&E
Time:12:59 pm.
Mood: thankful.
Like most LOTR fans, I got caught up in the whole raging debate on whether or not D&E are gay, straight, bi, single or a couple. I have been lurking about the DLA, DLR, and DL for awhile, just simply looking at people's opinions on the subject. I went in with a very innocent mind. What I saw was not exactly what I expected to find. Let's just say, I now have a very cynical and jaded mind after reading the various forum postings.

Regarding the topic at hand, some people have been very strong to argue their point of view. Some are just there to cause trouble or to post their own insane and non-sensical comments. People either fervently believe that they are straight, while others fervently believe that they are gay. Quelle mess! Is there anyway to really stop the insanity? Will we ever find out the "truth", once and for all?

At any rate, I stumbled across this DLA posting which, accurately sums up some of the things that I felt before I "entered" the black veil, so to speak. Before reading this posting, I wasn't really sure where I stood on the issue, after being so utterly confused by all the different points of view. But, after reading this article, I came back to my senses and remembered that this is what I believed in all along.
Whoever this person who posted their comments is, I just wanna say thanks!!

Here's the post.

Subject:April Fool's Day Jokes
Time:4:11 pm.
Mood: bouncy.
Today was a great day for April Fool's day. One of my co-workers played a great prank on our boss today. She informed him privately in his office that she was quitting the Company and taking on a new job in Bermuda. She had him going for a while with it. He was absolutely stunned. he didn't realize it was April 1st because I suppose it was too early in the morning and he hadn't had his coffee yet. One of my other friends told me that she got one of her fellow female co-workers to file a "false" sexual harassment complaint against the Company and had a long tete a tete conversation with the boss about her complaint. She too had him going for awhile. He really took her seriously. It was hilarious.
I partaked in the whole thing as well. I played a prank on one of my friends by e-mailing him in the morning and telling him I was fired. I went on and one about how depressed I was and how life just didn't have any meaning for me anymore. He was almost fooled during the 1st e-mail exchange but then realized that it was April 1st. Oh well!! I almost had him!!!!!
Our Company sent us this e-mail today. I gotta say this is one of the most classic jokster April 1st e-mails I have gotten in awhile. Here's what the e-mail said.

Subject:The Prisoner of Chillon and other poems
Time:9:22 am.
Mood: geeky.
Apparently, Lord Byron wrote a poem about a prisoner at the castle of Chillon in Montreux, Switzerland. I don't know what it is about this poem, but I really like it. I also love the castle of Chillon as well. It is one of the most perfect examples of a Medieval castle, there is in Europe.

Here's a picture of the castle by the artist Corbet and the words to the poem itself.

The Prisoner of ChillonCollapse )



I also noticed that there are some similarities between the "Prisoner of Chillon" poem and the poem "Eloisa to Abelard" by Alexander Pope. There is one line in particular that seems very similar. In the Prisoner of Chillon, Bryon writes "Eternal Spirit of the Chainless Mind" and Pope decrees in "Eloisa to Abelard", "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind". Coincidence? I think not. Byron I think was influenced by Alexander Pope and this very poem. At any rate, here is Pope's poem in its entirety. By the way, Heloise and Abelard were two scholars who fell in love in the 12th Century in Paris.
