I've just sent this to a friend and it seemed a waste not to also post it here:

He slithered and struggled and slid, until he found a weakness in the suffocating plastic that confined him and hindered his every movement. A brief contortion and the folds of plastic fell away; light and freedom beckoned, and a terrifying plan of revenge began to take shape in his mind.

To be continued...


In conclusion, I'll confess that we had a splendid family lunch today, of octopus stew with spaghetti.

No, I didn't! I'm much to squeamish for anything like that. It's actually very dead in the pic, not to mention only half defrosted. It was all I could do to make myself fish the damn things - there were lots of them - out of the plastic bag so I could chop them up. I couldn't handle them without gloves. :)

"It's alive" refers to me, posting again after so long - but you're meant to think it's the octopus. *g*

oh snap! I actually thought it might be the kitten in your icon... I'm glad you're back.

Rosiesparks, I don't know why we haven't come across each other before (or possibly we have but the mists of time and early onset of Alzheimer's have dimmed my powers of recall...?) but [ profile] msilverstar pointed me to you because we are going to Malta for our holiday this year!

Any useful insiderish and slashy Troy-related culturally pertinent tips???

:-) *waves*

Hi! *waves* I'm glad you commented and let me know you're coming to Malta. Sorry for the delayed reply - it's been one of those weeks...

Do you have any particular questions? I'd be happy to try and help, if you do - and to make suggestions. I have a(n ex-) friend who sat behind Sean Bean on a plane and got his autograph, but that's the full extent, I'm afraid, of my Troy-related encounters. *g*

If you'd like to email me, it's rosiespark at belldotnetdotmt Or comment here again, with when, where and what. :)

PS I have some of your LoTR fic bookmarked and was, erm, generally aware of your existence, even if we've never really interacted. *g* Isn't fandom (and LJ) funny?

Ahem, so I am replying... *cringes in shame* I very much hope to sit behind or in front (or on top of) Sean Bean on the plane. I also saw that a recent Bollywood movie was filmed in Valletta and that got me excited, watching the song'n'dance clips on youtube. So if Hrithik Roshan wanders into my field of vision at any time, I won't be unhappy! Mostly, though, we're going for the sun and the hanging out and the temples and suchlike.
