No matter which political party forms the Canadian
government during your Administration, Canada will remain one
of our staunchest and most like-minded of allies, our largest
trading and energy partner, and our most reliable neighbor
and friend.

Aw, guys, you shouldn’t have.

I love Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” for many, many reasons. And I’ve listened to many, many versions–as a matter of fact, I don’t think I’ve ever heard Cohen’s version of his own song. One of those cases where a cover outstrips the original version, I suppose.

Maybe that’s why I enjoyed this BBC quiz so much. 🙂 For the record, I got 7–missed the spoken word one. It was kind of terrible, after all.

love is not a victory march
it’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

I think the world record thing is kind of hokey, but… it is Firefox we’re talking about, after all. 😀

Help set a world record. Download Firefox 3.0.

EDIT: I enjoy Firefox 3.0. It’s faster, and I haven’t encountered a single bug so far! It’s like Firefox 2.0… but a little older, wiser, and with a few battle scars. I kind of miss my unbeveled menus.

I have never played D&D, although I do have some experience with computer games based on that kind of world. One day at work, one of my co-workers suggested to me that I might be a Chaotic Evil character (please don’t ask how this got started.)

Anyway, here’s a meme to prove otherwise:

I Am A: Neutral Good Half-Elf Wizard/Sorcerer (1st/1st Level)

Ability Scores:

Neutral Good A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. Neutral good is the best alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias for or against order. However, neutral good can be a dangerous alignment because because it advances mediocrity by limiting the actions of the truly capable.

Half-Elves have the curiosity and ambition for their human parent and the refined senses and love of nature of their elven parent, although they are outsiders among both cultures. To humans, half-elves are paler, fairer and smoother-skinned than their human parents, but their actual skin tones and other details vary just as human features do. Half-elves tend to have green, elven eyes. They live to about 180.

Primary Class:
Wizards are arcane spellcasters who depend on intensive study to create their magic. To wizards, magic is not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art. When they are prepared for battle, wizards can use their spells to devastating effect. When caught by surprise, they are vulnerable. The wizard’s strength is her spells, everything else is secondary. She learns new spells as she experiments and grows in experience, and she can also learn them from other wizards. In addition, over time a wizard learns to manipulate her spells so they go farther, work better, or are improved in some other way. A wizard can call a familiar- a small, magical, animal companion that serves her. With a high Intelligence, wizards are capable of casting very high levels of spells.

Secondary Class:
Sorcerers are arcane spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no theories just raw power that they direct at will. Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards do and acquire them more slowly, but they can cast individual spells more often and have no need to prepare their incantations ahead of time. Also unlike wizards, sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain their powers without undergoing the years of rigorous study that wizards go through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and are proficient with simple weapons. Charisma is very important for sorcerers; the higher their value in this ability, the higher the spell level they can cast.

Fresh from the Golden Compass movie website:

It was originally an ermine, and for the moment, it’s a jackal. Makes me wonder what it will be like in another 10 days or so. XD

[edit] Monday 1 October: Now it’s a lynx!

[edit] Sunday 14 October: Back to being a jackal.

There you are. A Flash test of tonedeafness!

For the record, I got 83%, which is not too bad considering….

Okay, so here from the depths of Harry Potter fandom… (and JKR’s official site)

At least that’s one test I know I did well on ;D

I just thought this was kawaii. (I hear that word so often at work that I’m allowed to use it, even if I don’t speak the language. :P)
