Wanted: An Italian Lady
Author: countessmedusa (alias Medusa, SirJames, sirprongs)
Rating/Warnings: G, mild language (if the word ‘butt’ constitutes as mild language)
Genre: Gen, fluffy humour, with a tad of seriousness
Characters: Sirius, Lily
Era: First War Against Voldemort
Word Count: ~ 900 words
Summary: Originally to a challenge, but there was a maximum of 600 words… So now it’s just a tiny story. James is on a secret mission for the Order – so Lily is bored out of her mind, scared and generally irritated and irritating; Sirius on the other hand is too proud for his own good. This was betaed by my Mum, the greatest Mum in the world! Critique is always welcome.

It is after all just a sport, right? But see, that's the point. It is not just a sport, and why did I have to become a fan of a sport that puts huge emphasis and emotions and artistry? On the one hand I love the artistic part, on the other hand it drives me nuts and I wish I could simply return to Chess being my favourite sport. I do love Chess. And the judging system in skating is so screwed up! It is not logical and it's math is seriously flawed. I hate it if the numbers don't add up. But enough of that.
So, this is me being back. I cut down a lot though, I barely have a look at the main skating forums any more; I keep myself informed by reading auntjoyceicecreamstand.blogspot.com/ and thexpuzzler and a Figure Skating Board founded by some other people who hated the outcome of the Olympics; euroskate.newfreeforum.com (I did the banner!).
Any interests apart from Figure Skating. Well, a few. Chess. Politics. Already mentioned those two. Actually, Politics is essentially the same as Figure Skating, just with much less attractive people in it. Also literature, languages, music, traveling, geology, mathematics, chemistry, art, architecture, football, hiking, palaeontology, cooking & baking. This list is not complete.
This post is getting far too long. My last journal consisted of my posting my artwork, nothing more actually. So one last thing:
This piece of music has been haunting me all day long. It's very close to being cheesy, but so beautiful, so touching, so emotional. Maybe I am getting cheesy in my advanced years.
