He bought me two late Yule gifts last night, when he found out I spent one of my gift cards on stuff mostly for other people. So now I am the proud owner of the Neverwhere DVD and the limited edition Return of the King Soundtrack. Very excited about both!!

The DVD remains in its package; I will watch it next week, probably, and post a review. For those of you who have no idea what Neverwhere is, you can find a synopsis here: http://www.neilgaiman.com/books/neverwhere_pb.asp It's an excellent book, so I have high hopes for the BBC miniseries DVD.

The ROTK soundtrack looks to be fabulous. I am extremely pleased to note that the song "The Steward of Gondor" includes Billy Boyd singing. There is also a track Viggo Mortenson was involved with, which I will listen to later today and report back on shortly. I'll just have to remember to remove both of those items from my Amazon list.

My husband is the greatest husband ever.
1. What does it say in the signature line of your emails?
Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained. -- Marie Curie (1867 - 1934)
Marie Curie was one of my first heroes and I believe strongly in the sentiment behind this quote.

2. Did you have a senior quote in your high school yearbook? What was it? If you haven't graduated yet, what would you like your quote to be?
I didn't graduate, hence I never had a senior yearbook. However, when I still thought I was graduating, they fought me on EVERY quote I suggested. I eventually decided to go with "Go in peace. I will not say do not weep, for not all tears are an evil." That's Gandalf's last line in the book of The Return of the King. The yearbook committee accepted that one, grudgingly.

3. If you had vanity plates on your car, what would they read? If you already have them, what do they say?
If I had them, I would want them to say NonMuggl (Non-Muggle)

4. Have you received any gifts with messages engraved upon them? What did the inscription say?
I used to get engraved jewelry from one of my Great Aunts all the time, but nothing else for a long time.

5. What would you like your epitaph to be?
Well, my big fear of dying involves not being remembered. So I think I would like it simply to be something like "We will remember" or "Her stories will live on."
