No, at least, not that I know of. It could be that I'm colorblind and can't see my eyes for the purple that they (hypothetically) are, but as far as my experience can be trusted, my eyes simply fluctuate between green, blue, and gray.
Before you ask the next question, no. Born and raised here in Canada, family comes from the Netherlands and, if you go back far enough in the family tree, France. Definitely not Middle Eastern, though. As far as religious belief, I don't see that there's that much difference between Christianity and Islam (or Judaism, for that matter), and until the different factions of the coming one-world religion come to some sort of agreement, I refuse to get involved and have to hear the anti-Muslim rhetoric from the Christians and the anti-Christian rhetoric from the Muslims... although I will admit that my Islamic acquaintances tend to follow the "teachings of Christ" (ie. the tenets of both religions) much more closely than do most of my Christian acquaintances.
No offense taken at all. I just wanted to make sure that I was taking your comment the way it was intended. I seem to have trouble deciphering the meaning of written communication with people who I'm not acquainted with.
Ummm... Melkor's on my page, like you said. What the hell do I do?! Am I allowed to approach him? Is that wise? I've left him standing there for hours and I think he's getting agitated. Or does he normally twitch like that?
.... um, I don't think that is what I mean, I am just talking about what ever it is this conversation is being taken place on. I had no name so I gave it a name, which when I name stuff people get confused, so my error.
Yeah, what ever this speak notifications thing is that are messages to visitors or what ever. Seems something like what facebook was when I was in high school, but never used it because I couldn't grasp the idea of what it was for.
Well, I originally met Jim in Louis Stevenson's classic, but as a character, I identified with Treasure Planet's interpretation more-so. Rather liked the film as well, even if it's 'world' didn't make much sense (and the Disney label, but sssshhh). Like in the opening, when young Jim is using the book like a television screen: how the hell does he know when to turn the page? And what would be the point of pages if it's all motion picture now? Lol. And just later on, why is the space port shaped liked a lunar crescent? What practical use could that be? (Except for an awesome scene transition.) Did the space station need a disguise? Why the moon?
How about your name? Do you have a particular affiliation with the colour? A skin condition perhaps?
Thanks for the hello though! I can stand tall now, no longer a visitor message virgin. (Edit: Too embarrassed to leave this bit un-edited, whether you found it offensive or not! Could've been misconstrued. Wasn't intended. Sorry. :)? )
I had to go check out some of the comics just now. They're much funnier...not that my intent was to make anyone laugh besides myself, of course. I've lost far more good, random ideas than I've ever remembered, so every now and then I just have to try to and express one while it's still fresh in the noggin.
I think I was lying in bed one morning when this current one popped into my head.
Pearls of Lutra. I thought that the scene with the pearls was really deep and touching. I've read all but 2 of the books so far (the two newest). It's been years since I've picked them up, but it was awesome to find someone else who likes the series :D
I love the humor in it. It's definitely my style; kind of anti-climatic I can't really describe it so here's a quote:
Zaphod: "Did you think of that, Earthman?"
Arthur: "Well, all I did was..."
Zaphod: "That's very good thinking, you know. Turn on the Improbability Drive for a second withou first activating the proofing screens. Hey, kid, you just saved our lives, you know that?"
Arthur: "Oh, well it was nothing really...."
Zaphod: "Was it? Oh well, forget it then. Okay, computer take us in to land."
Zaphod: "I said forget it."
I can't get enough of this stuff. Luckily the book is full of it.
