Killing a wee bit o' time...

Writing to y'all from the Linguistics office, waiting for my Phonetics small group to get here. Whee!

So let's see. Thanksgiving weekend; right. Got to see several relatives and in-laws (including kenshi and family), and ate a fair amount of food, naturally.

Also saw Harry Potter #2. Is it just me, or does Parseltongue sound a heck of a lot like the Black Speech of Mordor? Also, Shelob clearly has relatives near Hogwarts. Ahem.

In related news, I bought advance Two Towers tickets! 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 18, baby. My life feels more complete.

And if I get a chance, I'll scan in a picture of the old medieval-ish cloak I found in my closet back at my folks' house. As it turns out, it's oh so very Fellowship. (Especially with the fake ivy leaf I stole from a flower arrangement...) I put it on, and my relatives started singing "Frodo of the nine fingers..." (I apparently am lucky not to know this song.)

OK, group is starting to coalesce. Bye for now.
