narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (rex)
"A book unwritten is a delightful universe of infinite possibilities. Set down one word, however, and immediately it becomes earth-bound. Set down one sentence and it’s halfway to being just like every other bloody book that’s ever been written. But the best must never be allowed to drive out the good. In the absence of genius there is always craftsmanship. One can at least try to write something that will arrest the readers’ attention, that will encourage them, after reading the first paragraph, to take a look at the second, and then the third."

- Harris, R. 2007. The Ghost. P. 153. New York: Simon & Schuster.

As recommended by [livejournal.com profile] blasphemiliar, Omnia’s reading of Poe’s The Raven which at the start reminds me a little of the Potter Puppet Palls’ Snape.

Courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] sf_drama the old argument that you can’t look things up yourself with a side helping of needing to be taught everything about life at school and this, which the linked commenter sums up better than I could.

Also, a meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] nekonexus: Were I a summonable creature, what kind of ritual would you craft to summon me?

In other news: having wound up with a Jelly-Belly selection box boasting forty flavours over the holiday I’ve started experimenting with some of the ‘recipes’ that came on the little insert card. One was a combination of cream soda and root beer jelly beans to create a taste like a root beer float which unfortunately for me tasted like Pepto-bismol or possibly Germolene. Likewise the lemon meringue pie combination tasted like hairspray. Though at least the jalapeño favoured jelly beans did taste like jalapeños… jalapeños with a really bizarre texture.
And I found the strawberry mochi that followed after much too sweet.
