Well, I'm jumping on the band wagon because the results are too funny. Snurched from Kazbaby for the fun of it.

I saw the 10 wonderful images of Ben Browder as Cameron Mitchell in Stargate and it has me twitching. He is handsome and "hot" as ever but that image of Merlin is rather cheesy. It scares me that Stargate is going to invade The Matter of Britain because the mythology is so deep. It deals not only with the protection of civilization from the forces of barbarism, but also the death of pagan beliefs and the conquering of Britain to orthodoxy.

So there is Ben Browder/Cameron Mitchell pulling the sword out of the stone. Does he become King Arthur? I read a very interesting thread on Gateworld that lays out the mythology of King Arthur Stargate Style Re: Arthurian Legend and Season 9and I can sort of see Merlin as an Ancient or Ascended Being except that he was supposed to have lived about 500 AD which is waaaay too late. Stargate takes its mythology from all over the place and mixes metaphors terribly. So, I'll wait and see whether I cringe or just sit back and ignore the silliness.

I'm working up a Power Point presentation and outline to teach my first adult ed course. The course is for The Writer's Center in Bethesda, MD and is titled Marketing Your Writing on the Internet. The class is on Sunday and I"m overwhelmed with the amount of stuff I want to cram into 4 hours. I am very nervous about this. I have 11 students signed up. All you teachers out there, how do I do this?
