For the slash fans, Project Homer, Chapter 9 is up on [ profile] monaboyd

I've been dancing so much this week my stomach muscles ache.
Bellydance frenzy: Bellydance Superstars (Woow!), Sharon Kihara workshop, my teaching being inspected by the education inspectors, performance last night at Cancer Bridge. Maybe tomorrow I'll get time to write it all up, but for tonight I'd better get to bed (alarm will go off in four hours, blech ...)

Silent as the grave for months, then three posts come along all at once.

So, those of you who don't run screaming at the prospect of monaboyd slash might be interested to hear that Chapter 8 of Project Homer is up here . Just sayin'.

Bizarre moment of the week: Helping one of the fashion models backstage at the Cancer Support Group Fashion Show to reposition her boobs.

"I think that one needs to be over to the right a bit."

She peels it off her chest and sticks it back on, further over. I never realised you could get self-adhesive boobs. It was kind of weird to see her chest with no nipples, just horizontal scar lines where her breasts used to be.

"Are you sure? Are they meant to be that far apart? Are yours that far apart?"

I look down at my boobs and come very close to lifting up my shirt and flashing a complete stranger but decide against it and just pull the fabric in closer so she can judge for herself. :)

All the models had cancer. One of them was only 29, and had lost her mother to breast cancer at 32.

Three of us were there dancing as an interlude in the fashion show - one of our troupe has a really close friend in the cancer support group, so it's the charity we always ask for contributions towards whenever we dance. The last time we danced for them, one of our troupe said, quite matter-of-factly, that of course one day it would be one of us. Statistically of course, she was right - in fact, out of the 10 or so of us, it's likely that about 3 of us will develop cancer at some point. It kind of brings it home to you. You always think it's going to happen to someone else.

The commentator said of one model as she was onstage, that she lived for every day. I suppose we all should. You never know how much time you have so we should make the most of every day.

And on that note, I shall toddle off to bed, as it's 5:15 am and sleep might be a good idea at some point ...

I laughed so hard at this, it actually hurt.

The Two Towers ones don't have the knowing comments and so aren't quite as amusing, but still pretty darn funny :D

If "Return of the King" doesn't get every Oscar going then there is no justice in this world.

Finally got to see it this afternoon!

I've just spent half this evening oohing and aahing with owl over our favourite bits. Too much to reproduce here, suffice it to say that Billy was fantastic (*just dies of the cuteness, my hobbit fetish is pretty much firmly established now thank you*) , Sean A was brilliant and deserves an Oscar (and if he doesn't get one I will only be mollified if Andy Serkis won it instead), Peter Jackson - well what can I say (*bows down in awe*). I didn't see a dud performance in the whole cast.

Just a pity that there was so little Merry in the final version (nineteen scenes of his cut - poor Dom) but we just have to hope that they'll all be in the DVD. 5 hours, or so owl heard - yay!

My hobbit habit is getting as bad as owl's ...

I got the 'Fellowship of the Ring' Extended version DVD for Christmas from my sister (*glomps big sis madly*) so I'll be able to drool over them whenever I wish. Or at least when the kids let me anywhere near the PC, since the eldest got a virtual catz game and the Sims for Xmas. Anyhow, I can't get a good drool going until they're off to bed and I get some peace and quiet.

Right, out with the DVDs!
