Vampire Diaries - Damon & Elena dancing

Damon Salvatore Icons

I found these icons fairly hard to do - Damon is a great character, who over the season I came to love ... but trying to capture that in 100px squares was hard!  I hadn't thought I could get into The Vampire Diaries as much as I did.

Anyway - here is my entry for round 13 of character20n20 ... all the screen caps are from season 1 ... and let's give you some teasers first -

Day 17 - Favorite series of related movies (for this, a series can be two)

Well in this case it is 3 ... Yes the original series of Star Wars

I was, and am, a huge fan ... and was at college when the 3rd film came out.  I went with friends to see it ... and we all booed at the first sign of Darth Vader!

And - here is the original trailer ... which sums up what is so special about the series -

And - who can't just feel the hairs on their neck tingle at the sound of the theme -

James - Rock On!

Music Meme

1.Put your iTunes, Windows Media Player, iPod, etc on shuffle
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. You must write that song name down no matter how silly it sounds.

I am doing this musis meme that I snagged from sarian71 last week ... while I am editing photos to bore you with ... mmm ...  post here for you to look at!

I haven't done this in the past as I only had James music up ... but my brother Tim, while here, uploaded about 600 songs onto my pc, so adding James ... and putting on shuffle ... abd, who comes first - why, James, of course! (Honext!) ... and second, so it would seem! The songs don't fit, but amusing that 2 of his songs arrive as the first 2 loading.

Liar - Ghost of the Robot

Lullabye Baby Blue - James Marsters

Kiss - Prince (LOL - when will it start?)

James - thinky thoughts

£86,400.00 ... Something To Think About!

Imagine that you had won the following prize in a contest:

Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400.00 in your private account for your use.However,this prize has rules, just as any game has certain rules.

The first set of rules would be:
Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away from you.   You may not simply transfer money into some other account.   You may only spend it.   Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400.00 for that day.

The second set of rules:
The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say,Its over,the game is over!It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.

What would you personally do?

You would buy anything and everything you wanted, right?   Not only for yourself, but for all people you love, right?   Even for people you don't know, because you couldn't possibly spend it all on yourself, right?   You would try to spend every cent, and use it all, right?


Each of us is in possession of such a magical bank. We just can't seem to see it.


Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life, and when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is NOT credited to us.   What we haven't lived up that day is forever lost.   Yesterday is forever gone.   Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time....WITHOUT WARNING.

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?   Aren't they worth so much more than the same amount in ponds or dollars?

Think about that, and always think of this:

Enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.

So take care of yourself, be Happy, Love Deeply and enjoy life!

Here's wishing you a wonderfully beautiful day!!!
