Leonine Behavior

While there are no warm boulders here in the winter, basking on the floor in front of the wood stove is a suitable replacement. Need to find a soft, snuggly basking throw - carpet is too scratchy on my tummy. Maybe a nice, thick sheepskin.

Basking is goodness.

Secret Emails Between Sauron and the Nine

found someplace else, not my work

Secret Emails Between Sauron and the Nine
(Details taken from both film and books).

Sauron@Mordor.net:
"Witch-king & Co.: great opportunity here! Interrogation of Gollum reveals One Ring is in Shire (see attached jpg map). Apparently held by hobbit with last name of Baggins. Hobbits are v. short and not known to carry weapons. Piece of orc cake for you guys. Ride forth; grab the Baggins AND the Ring. Time to earn your keep. End-of-year bonus could be big!"

Ringwraiths@Mordor.net:
"Oh Dark Lord, the magnificent. Can't find the Shire, so went to Saruman for directions. He said your map was not to scale. Shire turns out to be a verrry long way away. How come we're just learning this now? Expect delay in OneRing project. Respectfully, the Nine."Collapse )

Now I await the return of the Very Secret Diaries...

Why is it?

Why is it that those who deserve things the least seem to get the most? Why are those who cannot conduct themselves as adults, who aren't capable of taking care of themselves, rewarded for their incompetence? Why are those who are the most self centered catered to? How is it that the angst and drama are so attractive?

Flowers, jewels, trips to romantic destinations seem to shower from the heavens for them.

Why are those of us who do for ourselves, who care for others, who are polite and reasonable overlooked? Is it because we *can* stand alone? Because we *don't* need the spotlight, need the drama?

Maybe I need to be more dramatic, more selfish, more vocal...
