I finally completed the Tri-Challenge Winter Tournament at the WQGL thread. (Here's the link for interested parties). I'm so glad to have that off my plate. RX_Sith PM'd me a great idea for the next competition that I'm inclined to use. I don't know what discussion topic to come up with. I'm hesitant about starting a topic especially as my board access is so infrequent and so off (since most Jedi are American ;) ) that I won't be able to keep the topic rolling... Anyway, I'll sleep on that.

Hopefully, before tomorrow I will ::knock on wood:: complete Week 17 of Cradle to Grave which will leave only 10 chapters to go! And I intend to complete those ten before Wednesday. ::bounces:: Finishing something is such a rush. 

I've finished Northanger Abbey (which for some strange, crazy reason I've been calling Mansfield Park all this while!) and I will properly write something on that tomorrow.

*apologizes for being yet another American* Though I suspect I'm more likely to be a moisture farmer than a Jedi. ;)

I'm interested to see the next bits of Cradle to Grave (after I inundated your ff.n posting with reviews). I rather like your Obi-Wan. He's very personable, in an unusual sort of way. And I'm really loving Kenobi as a Tatooine shop-owner. *snickers*

So... Kaleidoscope?

LOL! Well, the plan is to finish Cradle to Grave this month and it's looking less and less feasible although I haven't quite given up. By tomorrow, I'll let you know if Kaleidoscope will be up this week. You're still good to beta, right? ::bats eyelashes::

Moisture farmer? lol! I think not. More like a Senator, the good kind. :) And thanks for your reviews on ff.net. I keep meaning to reply them. I'd better do that right now! :D

Yup, I'm still good to beta. It will give me an excuse to avoid my Latin homework. ;) Not that I really need one, of course...

A Senator? Hmm, I doubt it. I dislike politics almost as much as Obi-Wan. ;) Maybe some sort of humanitarian aid worker. Or a pilot. Speed is fun. :D

I liked Northanger Abbey. I wish they would make a new movie of it. I've seen the dodgy 1980s BBC version - shudder.
I wish they would make a better movie of Mansfield Park -you know one that keeps to the story of the book & without sex scenes.

There were sex scenes in the BBC version? Austen must have been rolling in her grave. *g*

No it was the Hollywood version. It was directed by an American feminist or something. It totally sucked arse. nothing like the book & the costumes were way too 1998.

*waves hand enthusiastically*

I have a WQGL discussion idea! I was watching ROTS over the weekend, and for some reason decided to listen to the Spanish and French language dubs even though I know very little Spanish or French. The voices were an interesting contrast, particular Padmé's, imo. The Spanish voice for Padmé sounded more girl-ish than the French version which sound more like a woman, if that makes any sense. For example, go to the balacony scene with Anakin and Padmé (I think it is chapter 9 on the DVD) and listen to it in the two languages. Where Padmé laughs at the end of the scene, the Spanish voice sounds girlish and cute, while the French voice sounds considerable sexier and alluring.

I haven't listened to the dubs on the other two films, but it would be a good homework assignment for the weekend.

KA, who won't apologize for being another American. ;)

That sounds interesting. So you want us to discuss the different voices of Padme? It might not run on for too long. What about expanding that to include the different actresses that could have done as good (or better) a job as Natalie Portman.

The idea for the challenge [from RX_Sith] is to do a quote challenge of famous Padme quotes and someone has to write a story from that.
