While dragging a couple of our websites kicking and screaming into 7.x territory, I am reminded of this module (which some of you might find useful):

Misery

Boo Frickety Hoo!

Misery is a module designed to make life difficult for certain users.

It can be used:

Martha was annoyed to discover that the #7 bus, instead of taking her to bridge club, had dropped her in yet another damn fantasy world.
The fauns in the last one had been very polite, but she’d had to fight that thing with the tentacles off with her handbag.
-Ursula Vernon

Can I reblog my own art? Is that weird?

I reblog quotes from my own books, so I say go for it.

80S FANTASY

WHERE GORGEOUS SOUNDTRACKS AND AMAZING CONCEPT DESIGN LIVE AND DIE

My childhood.

Willow? Cheesy?

Peck! Peck! Peeeeeeck!

Very cheesy.

Ugh I love them all.

Some of my most favourite movies.. can’t be any cheesier than the movies today, at least they are lighthearted and fun :)

The Dark Crystal is really Jim Henson’s masterpiece.  If you haven’t seen it, do…and then remember that it was all done without computer effects.  

Also, the soundtrack is finally available on CD, etc.  

I love Return to Oz.  Of course, I also love The Princess Bride, but everyone loves that. :)

My friend Maggie, at the young age of 34, just found out she has a twin, and now it’s up to all of us to help her find them!
I love a mystery!
Please share this photo!

Worth a share.  Good luck, Maggie!

That one time Dorothy Sayers wrote Sherlock Holmes self-insert kidfic where her original character Peter Wimsey consults Sherlock Holmes over the affair of a missing kitten.

Click to embiggen image to get the full fanfic, or purchase the book it’s published in, Sayers On Holmes.

dduane - I think you’ll like this one!

I love Lord Peter just a shade less than Dorothy did. Which is saying something. :)

Reblogging for my friend Alison. And I will have to email it to my mom, who doesn’t do Tumblr.

Yes.

I am a princess


Whenever the subject of furriness comes up, I usually find myself saying something along the lines of “I like animal people, but I don’t, y’know, think I have the soul of a wombat or anything.” Then I started thinking about this statement. And I suppose, assuming the wombat drank tea, lounged around reading books on wombat evolution, and had a secret weakness for Flavor Blasted Goldfish, and generally acted like a human all the time, that it might be possible. But I’m not holding my breath. -Ursula Vernon


I could be this wombat.

Funniest blog ever. I haven't laughed so hard in ages - your sarcasm is a thing of beauty!
