I was attached to this quote, and will probably return it, but I wanted a time with the new sweet one I found, so fare thee well for a little while....

Ah, so true!

But it's time for a change.

Now that the Middle-earth Football World Cup finals have reached the second round, the competition is hotting up. So my new sig takes the opportunity to urge everyone here to get behing their local team.

I watched that movie again last night and remembered how much I love that little miscreant.

I now say goodbye to a sig I quite enjoyed:
Quote:
For the good are always the merry,
Save by an evil chance,
And the merry love the fiddle
And the merry love to dance.
It's from The Fiddler of Dooney, by W.B. Yeates, and rather expresses my outlook on things. The band I linked to in it (which is one of my absolute favorites) recites the whole poem on one of their CDs, and I really love it.

Seeing as it's already getting on to the third Sunday in Advent, it's time I changed to my Christmas sig.

To put to rest my Christmassy one-liner...

Quote:
O hush your noise, ye men of strife, and hear the angels sing...
I don't know, it has always been a favourite hymn line of mine. However, Christmas is past and although advent is still going, I shall put away Christmassy things from my signature at least. I yield it to a few lines from W.H. Auden, whose words were set to music in the lovely 'Hymn To St. Cecilia'. I can't help thinking of the music as I read the words...

Quote:
Blessed Cecilia, appear in vision To all musicians, appear and inspire:
Translated Daughter, come down and startle Composing mortals with immortal fire.

Christmas is over so it is high time I changed my signature.
This Christmas greeting that I send
Comes from a heart that's warm and true.
May gladness and contentement blend
To make a perfect day for you.

Farewell, you shall be missed.

Since it's now Epiphany and Christmas is officially over, I lay to rest my Christmas sig, from one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard.
Quote:
O magnum mysterium / et admirabile sacramentum, / ut animalia viderent Dominum natum jacentem in praesepio. / O beata Virgo, cujus viscera meruerunt / portare Dominum Jesum Christum. / Alleluia!
Since the robotics season started yesterday morning, I'm going to use something more appropriate to that.

I'm retiring my current sig because it is old and I'm sick of it...

The old:

The New:
Quote:
"Azaelia of Willowbottom: To live innocently for a few days, make some major voting mistakes and be lynched by an angry, ignorant mob in the end." ~Cailin, T-I-G Dream Team
The ironic thing is that the new one is old as well, posted sometime back in October. I liked it then, when I first read it, because it's pathetically true, but went on to forget it. I then stumbled across it again today while wandering through some older threads and decided it was time for a change.

  2. Legolas is: a. the Jar-Jar Binks of The Lord of the Rings; b. blonde; c. misunderstood.

  3. Daga is: a. short for 'Depressed Adults's Group Activity;' b. Filipino for 'mouse;' c. something you'll never find out.

Yep, couldn't resist the lure of multiple-choice questions. Unfortunately I ran out of steam and came up with only two . . . until daga'y who be short asked his fateful question. So, I had a third multiple-choice question.

Well, now I'll try to keep this non-Romeo Shakespeare line for as long as possible.

I abandon the splendidly arrogant motto of the de Coucys with much regret:

'Roi je ne suis,
Ne duc, ni comte aussi,
Je suis le sieur de Coucy.'


but since they were Frenchmen fighting under the banner of St Denis they're not appropriate today...to be replaced with

And euer as he rode, his hart did earne/To prove his puissance in battel brave
Upon his foe, and his new force to learne;/Vpon his foe, a Dragon horrible and stearne.

Finally, though I own it for some time, I've managed to actually read Thud!

Therefore, it's time to change sigs, and I leave my Jesus Christ Superstar one to rest here:

Oh, it's fantastic, isn't it? The Vimes books are still the best - I mean, the witches make a close second, but Vimes will always be the best

This seems as good a place as any to put my very first signature:

"Tell them I came, and no one answered, that I kept my word," he said.
Never the least stir made the listeners, though every word he spake
Fell echoing through the shadowiness of the still house from the one man left awake
It's the feeling that there must be some unknown story behind the poem that is so intriguing... A very brief extract from Walter de La Mare's 'The Listeners' - lovely poem, not sure why I like it so much, but it is one of my favourite poems.

It is done. I now retire my
Have you wished someone a HAPPY BIRTHDAY today?!

Fitting to me I started with Durelin and ended with Gurthang a couple of my werewolf playing buddies. I looked at the calendars so much that sometimes I thought people were changing their birthdates on me, a nod to Sleepy Ranger who actually did and fessed up to it!

Doing this for a year was not only to make my mark but an exercise in goalkeeping. I wondered if I could do it for a whole year. I did my best. Sometimes the process became tedious and other times it's what got me popping out of bed. I fretted when I had to go on holiday and didn't have access and I cursed the six weeks when my computer was down (end of April all of May) even though it was beyond my control I felt like I tripped at the finish line.

The Barrow-Wight may be a bit humbuggish about birthdays but to have a glorious death there must be a birth, a beginning for that end. And this is my end. Anyone wishing to pick up this torch I give you my blessings and my sympathies!
