Book Meme  

I got tagged by [ profile] idioticonion  

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people.

"The torch of piety, that is, as weilded by Shell, the Apostle Emperor. Younger brother of Elphaba and Nessarose. He swore he was divinely positioned by the Unnamed God. For all I know he is his, he is his-" She nearly gagged at the thought, and rotated her hand in the air, a forward roll. "He is history."

- A Lion Among Men, Gregory Maguire.

Awesome Christmas Presents  
I meant to post this months a go, but only just got round to it now. Anyway, look what my lovely friend Sophie made me for Christmas:

(Ignore the dodgy camera-phone quality of the pics)

She painted these herself. They're amazing ^_^ I thought I'd share so everyone else can see the awesomeness of her mad art skillz :D
I feel: impressed

Christmas was fun :)  
So far I've got to episode 5 :) It's just so awesome and amazing and stuff :D Kaylee <3 And Mal is brillaint, and so is Wash, and Inara and I love this show wayyyy too much already.
My uncle gave me a £15 amazon voucher, so I've ordered the latest Wicked bok and Dollhouse season 1 :) I'm in a bit of a Whedon mood lol.
ITV4 didn't show Dollhouse on Monday... don't know why... it's not like they had anything better on, it was 'Cops with Cameras' xD
At least when I have the DVD I won't have to put up with ITV's unreliable scheduling.
Looking forward to the book too, I absolutely LOVE Wicked and Son of a Witch. Wicked's really nothing like the musical - a lot darker, and more political too. I do love the musical as well though :)

I got the new Legend of Zelda DS game and the new Jak and Daxter game for Christmas too, so that's fun. Haven't played the Jak game all that much yet though, but Legend of Zelda is good :)

It was nice having a few days off work, but I had to go back today. And then the bus was an HOUR late at the end of the day, so I was waiting in the rain for an hour and twenty minutes :( I'm so cold. Stupid Stagecoach. When I rule the world, they'll be the first to go *evil laugh*

Anyway, I hope everyone had an awesome awesome Christmas :)
