11:24AM - Pretty pretty

"The Stuff I Find At Work" Dept.:

Given how popular the last one was, I can imagine how this might go over:

No cheeky captions, this time, just a straightforward taster:

Brace yourselves, it's a Kay Nielson BLUEBEARD in a pseudo-Aubrey Beardsley style.Collapse )

Crossposted all over and back again - sorry for any FList duplication.

The other day, I was watching "American Inventor" and I got to thinking and remembering about a couple books that I really, REALLY loved as a child.

But unfortunately, I think that over the years, they may have gotten lost or accidentally thrown out or given away by my parents, and for some reason, I can NOT seem to remember either the title or name of the author/authors, so even though I want to re-purchase them, I am having a REALLY hard time locating them, and I am hoping that maybe someone on here has these books and/or knows the title and/or the name of the author or authors and can help me out.

The first book was a big children's soft-cover paperback book (I think it was at least a couple hundred pages) about pet care. It had chapters/sections for each kind of pet, from the usual (dogs, cats, fish, etc.) to the unusual (exotic animals, reptiles, rodents, etc.) It was illustrated but the pictures were not actual photos, but cartoons. The book was about the different aspects of pet care, including feeding, training, medical issues, etc, and dealt with nearly all kinds of pets.

The second book was a big children's joke book, but it also had a section for inventions that "you wish existed" Mostly it was a joke/riddle book. But it had this chapter for crazy inventions.

If anyone can help me remember and/or find these books from the 1980's-1990's, I'd really appreciate it.

I like reading Enid Blyton...it reminds me of the childhood I never had. I blame television.

2:24PM - "Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."

I remember as a kid my favorite book used to be The Tao of Pooh, and even now I still think it's a great book, it still makes me laugh and smile just like it did when I was a child.

6:11AM - Swim along with the snorks...

I am a child of the 80's..and while most of my friends remember the likes of Smurfs(ves?), Gummi Bears, Ewoks, He-man, She-ra and Thundercats, no one can remember the Snorks or The Polka Dot Door. Anyone here remember them? I loved those! Why do they have Smurfs repeats but not snorks?

New harry potter forum if you're interested.

http://www.house-pride.net has a very unique sorting quiz and lots of activity and tons of cool people. For anyone that may be confused, the forum is FOR discussion of all Harry Potter books with divergence into other genres and authors. :) Our members are very diverse and I've already had a few books recommended to me I wouldn't have read before, but ended up totally enjoying. It's a friendly, safe, and intelligent community forum with mail swaps, word games, writing challenges for members diverse in age, talents and interests. The book club has just started reading the first book, and already the first two chapters are up for discussion. We have a diligent staff (which I am part of!) where someone is always online if help if needed, with word censors, locked forums, age restriced access, and other precautions to keep the forum clean for everyone. You should check it out!

7:23PM - Through Dangers Untold and Hardships Unnumbered

In 1986, a fantasy film named Labyrinth was created by the Jim Henson Company, starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly as the two human actors in a magical world peopled by strange and wonderful creatures created by the Jim Henson Creature Shop.
Based on the Fighting Fantasy series of books created by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingston, I have created a role-play game in which you take on the role of Sarah, the film's heroine, and you have to traverse the Labyrinth from start to finish in order to rescue your baby brother Toby from Jareth, the Goblin King! Fight fireys, dance with Jareth, and decide whether you want to accept the Goblin King’s ultimate offer: “Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave!”
But, beware! The route you take will not be identical to the route that Sarah took in the film, and there are pitfalls and red herrings all along the way. Before you begin please make a note of the time you start, the number of times you fail, and the time you finish, as it will be used to determine whether you have achieved a High Score once you have completed the Labyrinth.
Can you defeat the Goblin King?

Wow, I actually have members? Anyone wanna introduce themselves? Maybe I should make a survey or something.

So, anyone into A Series of Unfortunate Events? I read the Carniverous Carnival before the Vile Village and Hostile Hospital (don't ask me why). I am reading HH right now, and am looking forward to piecing some stuff together. I heard that unfortunate events dot net was down. Anyone been there before?

So, any ideas for a community icon?
