Jealousy

I really wish I was at Eastercon, like half of you lot seem to be. Must try and go next year.

In the meantime, have some Great scenes from TV and music, told using typography. Hee.

And Arthur C Clarke's tombstone reads:

Here lies Arthur C Clarke. He never grew up and did not stop growing.


At work today, doing the Guardian quiz (I think) on our lunch break:

Questioner: "Who was Adam's first wife, according to Jewish teachings?"
Me, immediately: "Lilith."
Everybody else: "...!"
Everybody else: "...?"
Me: "..Mother of all vampires."
Everybody else: *sigh*

(Also, it turns out I wouldn't have posted yesterday anyway, due to not being on the computer. Heh.)

Yeah, I think I mixed up a couple of different bits of "real" and roleplaying mythology there, but it worked...

Doesn't everyone know who Lilith was?

Ah, wait, my first real girlfriend studied the bible properly, I remember.

That Clarke quote? Genius.

I didn't think it was that obscure, but my office tends to win every pub quiz we go near, so to have them all gaping at me was a bit unexpected!

It was, I was just surprised they didn't know!
