mostly about Jet
Miracle Max: It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There’s a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive.
For those of you who do not know what I mean, I urge you to read or watch The Princess Bride at your earliest opportunity. You won’t regret it. Bonus: all of my weird Princess Bride references will make more sense.
My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
My father is still very much alive. I was born and raised in Canada and most of my relatives live there – people still hear something of the Canadian in my speech, even after 18 years. Now I live in the Seattle area with my husband and teenage daughter, and a chocolate labrador who purrs. To learn more about my family, click here and here.
Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Writing is a huge part of my life. I am the biggest word-geek I know, although the word-geek I married and the word-geek I birthed might challenge me on that. When Bananagrams came out, my joy was luminous. I hate Scrabble. You’ll find more about my life as a writer here.
Dread Pirate Roberts: Good night, Westley. Good work. Sleep well.
I’ll most likely kill you in the morning.
Photography is a creative passion for me. Where writing is an internal, subjective experience, photography gets me out in my community and is a cooperative venture with my environment. I’m not at all sure what the above quote has to do with camera-work, it just makes me laugh.
Depending on my mood, there is a fluid mix of words and photos here at scatterbeams. For a collection of some of my favourite (digital) photos, check here. I talk about my history with a camera here. (I really need to update that site. Or just get a flickr site, already.) And now that I have a mobile phone with a decent camera, I send the Droid photos here.
Miracle Max: Sonny, true love is the greatest thing, in the world – except for a nice MLT – mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe.
Food is a central part of any celebration, and a delicious way to share with my family and friends. A while back, I flirted with a food blog, but the relationship didn’t go anywhere. I hope to revive my food stories here and here.
My favourite quote from the story:
As you wish.
If you know what this means, then you know something more about me.
