Someone, say something intelligent, I... Can't!

Thank you Wolfgang Petersen.

First of the Law exams started today. Contract and Tort is over. *rejoices* I should be studying, but I discovered all the new Troy videos that've appeared lately and I went on a downloading frenzy.

Didn't get to use the case Paris v. Stepney Borough Council. Which involves, not Troy, but tort and employer's liability.

The European Principles of Contract Law are also known as the Lando Principles of Contract Law. It really doesn't help that this guy's full name is Ole Lando. What kind of name is that? More importantly, how I am supposed to study with any degree of seriousness when I can't keep the silly grin off my face?

You know, I can see the examiner's comments on my paper:

"The Judgement of Paris is a painting, not a point of law!"

I'm sure I had something more intelligent to say, but it evades me at the moment.

ranchelle, you have gone and set my heart on fire.

la_muerta, my source of All Things HP, has linked the new Azkaban trailer in her post here. It has French subtitles. Which caused me to see things I shouldn't have.

anyasy's done a delightful assignment for her Creative Writing class: "Think of a poem title, then put it into a search engine and construct a poem out of the results".

Being in the state of mind I was in, I went for, "Hector, why won't you let me -" and found... a shocking number of love songs.

Hector, Why Won't You Let Me -

You see, the thing is - All the stories I have
Won't let me be
For I have a problem and I know you can help
You won't be the last to know, to see

I don't want to fight
What we are fighting for won't
Let me be apart from you
Paris, he won't stand a chance
Strong in spirit, let me lift you up
Let me fight with you

In all these years
I won't, tonight, love you

That's the only reason he married her
What makes you think they will let me stay?

Fighting for this loneliness
It's a lie without you


I just realized that with judicious cutting and punctuation, you can get a very different poem. *thanks Writers' Circle sessions*

What we are fighting for won't let me be apart from you, Paris
He won't stand a chance

Spirit, let me lift you up
Let me fight with you

*laughter* And a wonderfully insane site which seems to be attempting Iliad: The Musical! I can't believe this - It's... It's... like...

Agamemnon: Odysseus.

Odysseus: I know! I miscalculated. By a slip of my stylus I scaled this thing down by 25.

Ajax: It's more like a little donkey.

Antilochus: Yeah. The Trojan A—-

Odysseus: Don't say it! So I made an error. I still did a far better job than any of you could have done.

There's a gloomy silence.

Ajax: Menelaus, I'm frightened.

Menealus: Hush. We have to sit still for a few more hours, and then we can go outside.

Diomedes: How long have we been in here?

Menealus: Not more than a hundred and twenty minutes

Antilochus: It feels more like two hours to me.

Ajax: It feels like forever to me.

Menealus: It will be over soon.

Agamemnon: Can you keep it down? We don't want to be discovered!

Another hush.

Menealus: Can you hear that?

Agamemnon: They're certainly having a lot of fun out there.

Odysseus: In all probability, imbibing alcoholic beverages, too.

Menealus: We can relax a little, then. Come on, all of you! Cheer up a bit. Don't look so glum.

Ajax: Why shouldn't I?

Menealus: Well, Odysseus here is so sorry for making things difficult that he's going to sing a song for us.

Antilochus: Dear Poseidon. Since when can engineers sing?

Odysseus: A sweeping generalization! (Shooting Menelaus a nasty glance) Very well! But if I have to sing a merry ballad, I'm at least going to make it educational.

Menealus: Odysseus... make it appropriate.

Odysseus: Nothing could be more so!

I can hear John Cleese's voice... And of course they break into song about Pi. I never thought I'd see Odysseus say anything beginning with, "Whenever I'm down and start to cry/When I can't deduce the reason why" - But there it is, and... my heavens. There's music. Here's the site. And my favourite line was (Possible spoiler warning):

Priam: "Paris, repeat to me why Hector always said you're the worst archer in the whole Trojan army."



*flees la_muerta, whom I adore dearly, but who may not let me get away with this*

Went into a bookshop to get a newspaper today. Walked out with newspaper and four fantasy books.

Good morning! *waves at you*

OB. is. not. SB!

Quite true. Orlando'd be better as Lupin.

*evil, evil, evil.*


It's probably not a good thing that my first thought upon reading that was, "Punish me..." In a very wrong tone of thought.

Thank you Wolfgang Petersen.

*nodnod* L-look at the expression on Paris's face. *stares for a bit* I love the caption... *pants gently*

*cries with lust over your icon*

Okay, then I tried to get a grip and then read this line from your poem, "Let me fight with you" and just froze with surprise. Why? Because this line is in the fic I'm writing right now. Paris says it to Hector. You can't even imagine my shock at reading this. LOL.

And then the dialogue from the musical is hilarious, especially,
Menealus: Odysseus... make it appropriate.
Odysseus: Nothing could be more so!

*sigh* As for Contracts... I hated Contracts in school, and now, it's what I do for a living. Knock me over with a feather please.
7th-May-2004 09:00 pm (UTC) - Somehow I must remember to breathe...
*cannot breathe* Why is it that every time I read something of yours like this I have to go away and control myself before I can even speak?

*clings to you desperately*

I adore the look on Paris' face. OhGOD. Have you seen this post of ezzvaldez's? That's a completely amazing picture of Paris Orlando. Doesn't help that the colour of his shirt happens to be the shade I mentally call "Trojan blue".

Because this line is in the fic I'm writing right now

*is seized by uncontrollable, unspeakable joy* Oh, thank you.. Thank you. *dies*

*struggling to find something coherent to say*


I'm just completely filled with incoherent wonder and...

*worships you ardently*

You can't even imagine my shock at reading this. LOL.

*goes into convulsions*

Reading your comment has made me so high that I won't come down for at least a week.

*is trembling*

The musical. *huge grin* Is insane. Utterly. *hugs you*

Contracts! *falls over* You're amazing. Right now I'm being utterly confounded by Contracts. And Property. ; ) You give me hope. *smiles*

Knock me over with a feather please.

Surely there are more... interesting... things that can be done with a feather... *slow smile*

*falls to knees and worships you*

7th-May-2004 09:03 pm (UTC)

Wait, OB/EB? XDXDXDDD Not EB/OB? *wild amusement*

*clings to you too* I think I'll be crying as well... *hugs you tightly* I cried at Gladiator. Troy will leave me sobbing in the dust.

*wild happiness* *throws self at you* *cannot stop smiling*

*laughter* Shall I send you Total Film, with Brad Pitt on the cover? I see absolutely nothing with Bana on the cover. Wah. Otherwise it'd be on its way to you. *clings*

Anything you want is yours *evil grin*

4th-May-2004 09:37 pm (UTC)

*grins* Oh that's fine. You forget I would dearly love to wring Sirius's neck off for bullying my dear Sevvie-kinns.
7th-May-2004 08:37 pm (UTC)
HEHEHEHEH... *hugs my Professor* I'm so glad you didn't disown me.


*laughs until out of breath* Oh my GOD... *hugs you again*

Yet another amusing entry~ *niko niko*

Talking of which, shall I send GC vol 2-4 over or shall I just wait till you come back next month? Depending on whether you want to have it in London or keep it in Singapore. I'm afraid your shelves may be overloaded, with the amount of books you're obtaining over there. *chuckles*

ranchelle, you have gone and set my heart on fire.
I don't think I'm allowed to. *runs from your engaged Dae* XD
7th-May-2004 08:36 pm (UTC)
*giggles helplessly* I live to amuse. Or rather, to write down all that makes me go OMG so as to remember it better. ; )

I'd adore having it with me, but waiting will be fine, too ^_^

Oh, my shelves... Are already overloaded. I'm storing books in the closet. ; )

I don't think I'm allowed to.

Pity. ; ) I never let that stop me.
6th-May-2004 12:10 am (UTC)
LOL!! XD : )

bah, I'm jealous. I want the exams to be over too.
7th-May-2004 08:36 pm (UTC)
*hugs you* Glad it amused ; )

And love your poem idea. Am strangely biased towards making it slashy. XDDDDD

Yours will be over soon! *hugs*

I'd love more study time... ; )
