Today was a good day!
- I woke up late!
- I helped around the house with cleaning!
- I went out!
- I bought some Asimov! (N. started me on Caves of Steel and now that I know there’s more Baley+Olivaw, I HAVE to read them because robots and detectives and robot detectives. I also got Prelude to Foundation because I read at least part of the series in middle school and I want to re-read it.)
- I had good food! The ramen place I usually went to (that I also took N. to once) looks completely different! They even have a sushi train now! Weird! Their ramen is as good as it ever was, but I don’t be going there for sushi (I have a place I go to just for that).
- N. wrote me more M!Shep/Garrus!!!!!!!!! Highlight of my day!!!!!!!!! ♥
- N. went through the sideblogs I run and gave me commentary on all the stuff he liked! I love it when he does this because we discuss awesome stuff!
- We said we were gonna watch Constantine and Out of the Past, but it got really late while he was going over dangerousmale and writing(!!) noir snippets(!!) on the spot(!!), based on some of the posts! They were fantastic!
- We’re actually watching Constantine now! It’s great!
And that’s how we roll! Pretty much an awesome day. :D
If you’re looking more for a description of his physical appearance, then not really (see this post for information on Sauron’s appearance, though.) However, there is one really great description of Sauron in general, which is found in The Silmarillion:
Sauron was become now a sorcerer of dreadful power, master of shadows and phantoms, foul in wisdom, cruel in strength, misshaping what he touched, twisting what he ruled, lord of werewolves; his dominion was torment.
SOURCES: The Silmarillion “Of the Ruin of Beleriand”
((Also, there’s this great drawing of Sauron by Ted Nasmith. Sauron’s the guy with the horns, not the hound. That’s Huan, we like him.))
OSLO, March 21 - A pre-Viking woollen tunic found beside a thawing glacier in south Norway shows how global warming is proving something of a boon for archaeology, scientists said on Thursday.
The greenish-brown, loose-fitting outer clothing - suitable for a person up to about 176 cms (5 ft 9 inches) tall - was found 2,000 metres (6,560 ft) above sea level on what may have been a Roman-era trade route in south Norway.
Carbon dating showed it was made around 300 AD.
“It’s worrying that glaciers are melting but it’s exciting for us archaeologists,” Lars Piloe, a Danish archaeologist who works on Norway’s glaciers, said at the first public showing of the tunic, which has been studied since it was found in 2011. Read more.
