Stories

Good stories are not always the obvious ones.

I've seen Gladiator probably fifty times or more, and I still become emotionally involved. I can even recite large chunks of the dialogue, but I still root for Maximus, I still argh at the screen when he turns down Marcus Aurelius' offer to lead Rome back to the Republic, and Commodus still makes me twitch.

That is the sign of a good story.

I'm writing.

Giftmas

I will, as usual, address the Giftmas issue after the fact.

Unless you're Jesus (and I don't mean the poolboy) you don't need presents on Monday. It's not your birthday. ;)

That said, I do love the cards and presents I've been getting. Much love to you all.
SGA: look at that! (icie)
