All that no-one sees, you see what's inside of me. Every nerve that hurts, you heal.

15 days...

I just finished reading some entries from way back in 2004/05, before moving here. What a frickin' DORK!!! Geezus! My life's goal was to make friends with people on the internet. I'm so incredibly thankful for what has transpired in my life over the last almost 6 years. I have the most amazing group of friends! Just sayin'.

I stitched the ribbon onto the neck line of the dress and promptly decided it looked awful. So now's the fun task of ripping black thread out of black velvet ribbon. It's actually going much easier than I thought and I can spend tomorrow night at Peter's sewing it on by hand. It's the only way to get it right. I think it's going to be quite lovely.

Watched this today:

Daniel Radcliffe made me cry. Also got a lovely bit with Alan Rickman and David Thewlis on their last day on set. I imagined myself standing between them. A nice little Severus/Remus sandwich. *giggles* I get such a kick out of pictures of Alan in costume and he's smiling or laughing. Happy Snape!

I want to broach the subject of buttons. Lots and lots of black buttons. Neck to waist. Wrist to elbow.
This picture is especially nice because you get a good look at the buttons on his left arm and that wonderful cuff. The sliver of white and just visible fingers is so incredibly sexy. Also, that glimpse of white at the collar. Just a hint of what's underneath layers of black on black. Absolutely perfect. The man in black. There is a wonderful book, which I've been meaning to re-read called, Men in Black by J.R. Harvey.
It deals with the color black and men's clothing with an emphasis on the Victorian era. What I found interesting was the discussion of different types of black; professional, ecclesiastical, scholarly, and mourning. For awhile after reading the book, I would have to decided exactly what kind of a black a character was wearing. Good fun! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Back to buttons... I still feel the one scene we were (I was) robbed of due to it's not being included in the movie is the scene where Severus shows Cornelius Fudge his Dark Mark at the end of Goblet of Fire. In the book, Rowling only says that Snape raised the sleeve of his robe. On screen, though, we would've seen Severus undoing buttons, many, many buttons. The buttons that keep his secret hidden. That would've been spectacular! It certainly would've helped what is probably one of my least favorite of the movies. Maybe if David Tennant had been in it more. Or if they hadn't cut the scene where Karkaroff confronts Severus in the snow during the Yule Ball. That would've helped. Not saying it's bad, per se, it's good, just not my fave.  

Snape Tape song for tonight is:

Again, purely atmospheric. There's drama and a sense of urgency ( you push me up to this State of emergency). I was never a Sugarcubes fan, and was leery of Bjork when she went solo, but Homogenic is an amazing album.  This song really fit in nicely with the aural atmosphere I'm trying to create. Clean and cold.
Oh, sweet Morpheus, I am SLEEPY!!!!

sleep tight don't let the bed bugs bite!
