First there was this:

"The result of the US election will affect the lives of millions around the world but those of us outside the 50 states have had no say in it - until now. In a unique experiment, G2 has assembled a democratic toolkit to enable people from Basildon to Botswana to campaign in the presidential race. And with a little help from the folks in Clark County, Ohio, you might help decide who takes up residence in the White House next month. Oliver Burkeman explains how."

Then this:

"Dear Clark County voter: three prominent Britons reach out."

And then this:

"Last week G2 launched Operation Clark County to help readers have a say in the American election by writing to undecided voters in the crucial state of Ohio. In the first three days, more than 11,000 people requested addresses. Here is some of the reaction to the project that we received from the US."

Two weeks today until the election. *is scared*

When you read this, post a poem in your own lj. (Last seen with nandamai.)

Ask Me

Some time when the river is ice ask me
mistakes I have made. Ask me whether
what I have done is my life. Others
have come in their slow way into
my thought, and some have tried to help
or to hurt: ask me what difference
their strongest love or hate has made.

I will listen to what you say.
You and I can turn and look
at the silent river and wait. We know
the current is there, hidden; and there
are comings and goings from miles away
that hold the stillness exactly before us.
What the river says, that is what I say.

William Stafford

I first read this poem thanks to runpunkrun.

Pinched from nostalgia_lj and other people, and someone before that. ~ ...list all the first lines of your fics and then people write drabbles in the comments with the same first line."

But most of my fics are drabbles (or less!). Heh.

Anyway, I was interested to see what my first lines were - it's been so long since I've written anything I'd forgotten.

First lines:Collapse )

Hmmm. And can I just say? New Black Books series 3 DVD. Here. Now. Sitting next to me. *licks* But, ack, alas, no episode commentaries :( but other than that, SQUEEEEE!

Ah, what a wonderful day of golf. Yes, my friends, Europe totally thrashed the USA in the opening day of the Ryder Cup.

Winning is always nice, but when you beat the Americans on your way there, victory is just that bit sweeter. ;p

Obviously there’s still everything to play for. Don’t count your chickens and other clichés. But whatever happens, today was beautiful.

(p.s. I’m going away for a bit and will be sans internet. See you lovlies when I return. Have a great weekend!)

Okay, I was just reading the Altantis twop board/forum thingy (even though they're all mean to Weir over there *thwaps*) and someone mentioned who Sheppard sounds like. It's Owen Wilson! Yes yes. That's it exactly! I cannot tell you much this has bugged me. I knew he reminded me of someone but I coudn't figure out who it was.

*sigh* Such a relief.
