Re: Some fairy tales thousands of years old

Lisa, thanks for sharing the link! Like MLE, this doesn't surprise me either; fairy tales deal in archetypes, and human beings tell the same stories across cultures and millennia. The example of Beauty and the Beast is great - when I was a kid, I learned the story of Cupid and Psyche before I ever r...

Re: The Worst Thing Today

Thank you, MLE. My stepfather has become so dear to me, and he suffers so bitterly. He has shown immense grace, it's been a lesson to me. Mom, dealing with the onset of widowhood for a second time - just harrowing.

Madeleine, we're getting our first snow today in the mid-Atlantic - shouldn't be much, but it's pretty at the moment.

It's odd she's "peering" at her mirror with her eyes closed, though!

Re: What Movies Have You Seen Lately?

So is anyone else as Sherlock-obsessed as I and many of my writing friends are? This new year began in the loveliest way - PBS was premiering the new special, on Friday the 2nd, and one of my lovely friends and I were texting all "It's coming on!" and ... their PBS streaming service (they can't get ...

Re: The Worst Thing Today

MLE, I am late to offer my condolences, but you gave Josh the kindest goodbye. We all should be so fortunate. My stepfather has been enduring an extremely slow and hideous decline; it feels like he has been dying for a very long time now. Yesterday, having been in bed for four and a half days, he no...

Re: The Most Annoying thing today

I live in an area where people seem to think NOTHING of being on their phones while driving. And I don't mean bluetooth. This horrifies me; what can possibly be so compelling to yap about it's worth risking the lives and property of everyone you're sharing rush hour with, you imbeciles?
