I got [ profile] evilsherbear and [ profile] featheredraven 's postcards this morning! They're so brilliant, I love the little drawings you did me :D (and HOLY CRAP A WONDY POSTCARD WHERE ON EARTH DID YOU FIND IT). Thank you so much! They brightened my day considerably (we have roadworks going on outside the house atm and the drilling. Will not. END.). I hope that mine got through okay too.

In other news, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood continues to be entertaining (I have recruited all my bb assassins! They are so cute) although I remain terrible at stabbing dudes in the neck. I thought I was okay at multiplayer buuuut apparently not any more? I spent most of my last few matches hiding in a haystack. This was alternated with playing Space Marine which.... eeeh. It's mainly for Warhammer 40k fans and no-one else, although it has an amazing female Imperial Guard called Lieutenant Mira who is, shock, fully clothed, non-sexualised, badass and competent. She even ties her hair back for combat. I am in love with her.

7 Days of Happy/Good/Generally Joy-Inducing Things

day 01 | a song
day 02 | a picture
day 03 | a book/ebook/fanfic
day 04 | a site
day 05 | a youtube clip

day 06 | a quote
day 07 | whatever tickles your fancy

So! In light of my previous post, I'm going to put up this quote.

Passion and prejudice govern the world; only under the name of reason. It is our part, by religion and reason joined, to counteract them all we can.

John Wesley

I never expected people to reply to that post, much less in the thoughtful and sympathetic way that you all did. I should have known better- one positive  thing that the internet has taught me (especially over recent days) is that the human capacity for empathy and understanding is much greater than you can ever imagine. And that whoever you are, whatever's got your goat today, it's never just you. Thanks guys.

And because I know religion isn't everyone's deal, here's some quotes about creativity courtesy of Jay Smooth (and some other guys).

p.s any suggestions for tomorrow? I was thinking of maybe doing a voicepost Q&A thing but I don't know how many of you are interested in hearing my outrageously posh British accent. Maybe you don't want to hear that! Maybe you have other things you want more of! Let me know, please!
So, rather amazingly considering timezones and all that jazz, I got my fill today. (Don't panic! I'm not going to post it! I'm not THAT daft) and the lovely, lovely person who wrote it didn't leave an lj name or anything so I could contact them, but they do have my lj name, so, Hildegard? if you're reading this? THANK YOU. It was everything I imagined when I requested it, plus a whole lot more (tying it to the Yukon was amazing and a really neat trick). Your America is spot-on. And I completley lost it when I read the bit with the cabbages.

Also I just realised I could have waited until this fill was posted on the comm but dammit I want to tell them nooooooooooow

America and I are not unalike in some ways.
