…So many lessons to learn...?
This is the clarifying LJ meme, which everyone else (most recently, um, epicflailer
?) has done. I am doing this at the insistence of fakeplasticsnow
, who has since clarified her name is “Fake Plastic Snow” (from the Radiohead song, and the title of her favorite Ugly Betty
episode), as opposed to “Fake Plastics Now” (a homage to fake resins, nylons and other polymers, or a slogan for the same). Good to know that, bb.My username: Jehane18
. Jehane is the female protagonist from The Lions of Al-Rassan,
a historical fantasy novel by Guy Gavriel Kay set in Moorish Spain. I loved this beautifully written book, and I identified so much with Jehane: smart, principled and passionate. Read an extract here
. My profile name:International Woman of Mystery!
This ass-kicking persona was born one day when we decided to form a superspy group, the Girls of Ultimate Hotness (“GoUH”). The other GoUH members were lire_casander
’s persona Sarcastic Journalist from Heck, and motherendurance
, the Fabulous Girl Sleuth. We’re still taking members, so feel free to pick a superspy persona and sign up ;)My journal title: Grounded Here With You
. From “Be My Downfall”, by the awesome, ageless Del Amitri. “Be my downfall be my sweet regret
Be the one thing that I'd never forget
Be my undoing, be my slow road to ruin, tonight
Well, the bus is pulling out, and I’m grounded here with you
And I want to say the sweet things babe I always wanted to
So tell me now the tail-lights have gone out of sight
Baby won’t you be my downfall once again tonight”.
This was the song which played when I fell in love with Hub, and will always be the song of my heart, and when I heard it sung to me by the phenomenal frackin_sweet
in her epic story “Patron Saints”, I knew somehow that she was...my density
. ILUBB ♥!
Original song here
, circa 1992; and then again, the boys older, wiser, more full of time, a decade or so on
. New version includes a lovely version of "Drowned on Dry Land".When your world is full of strangers, when your nights are dark and dangerous,
there's a place where you can hang and just let it go.
When your eyes see only sorrow, and your life seems somehow borrowed,
and those long promised tomorrows never show.
Well, come on down we're waiting for you;
We got a special evening planned.
We're gonna push the boat out or you might get drowned on dry land.My journal subtitle: ...though we share the same city, and feel the same sun...
. Another Del Amitri song, "Always the Last To Know" “Though we share the same city, and feel the same sun/When the winter comes, I’ll be the last to know”
. This ironic song, with its killer guitar line, is about how you'll always love the lover whom you did wrong.
Oh my heck, this is becoming a Delboys fan journal! We need some David Cook right away. Here!My friends page: “I know your name, I know your skin, I know the way these things begin”
. From Suzanne Vega’s “Caramel”
- “It won’t do to stir a deep desire, to fan a hidden fire that will never burn true”
. Cool and lovely, with a slow bossa nova burn underneath – I love Suzanne’s voice, and the longing in this elegant, restrained song, and the love that I feel for all of you.
