This has always been a favorite picture of mine. I discovered it in an art book some years ago and was able to find it at GettyImages (so I apologize for the tag.) I could go on forever about this photograph, but you'll see for yourself.

I went looking around FictionPress.com, trying to see if I could find a story to read that fit my fancy. Checking out the reviews of one story, I found this:

so THATS y the ppl in this story talk funny. dont worry i understand elizabethan, but its stilla little bit confusing. example: wat does ZOUNDS mean?! wat is that some type of curse word? or is that someone's name? this story would b better if gabrielle didnt act so innocent all the time. NOBODY'S that innocnet. but besides that this story isnt so bad.i lyk the idea of the story. it reminds me of this other story that i was reading.

All I can say is, zounds!

I probably don't even have a right to complain about this, but I feel like it, so I apologize for bound over-stepping.

I found this new RPG, it hasn't even begun yet and has almost the perfect plot for what I'm looking for... so I wrote out an application. Before I was going to send it I decided to look at already taken characters, to see who I might be playing with, right? I could forgive Su Li being Japanese, that's not SO bad. But there's a character whose mother, brother, and boyfriend have all died, is described as having 'Elvish features,' whose middle name comes right out of LotR, has a 'dancer's build' and 'Porcelain skin,' and whose profile can't seem to decide if she's in Ravenclaw or Slytherin...

I don't think I'm going to send my app in. I know I should be giving her a chance, it's completely possible she's not played as badly as her bio sounds but... I've just gotten so, I don't know, pessimistic? judgmental? arrogant? I feel so bad at cringing when I see 'silvery blonde' as a hair color.

I feel like such a bad roleplayer...
