Title: Scars
Author: MsJDarcy
Rating: PG
Fandom: Robin Hood
Pairing(s): General
Word Count: 565

Summary: They each bore a scar. Each was different and each hurt in its own way.
Author's Notes: Written for hoodland's We Are Robin Hood challenge. A lack of inspiration caused me to look through an old prompt table where I got the prompt 'scar'. After a quick dictionary check, this is what resulted.

Just a quick note to say that I'm rather excited about seeing Julius Ceasar at the end of the month! Reviews should start coming out next week but the production photos from the previews are up and it looks very promising. I'm not entirely sure why there needs to be quite so many bare abs and tight singlets, but to be honest, I don't really mind!

If it's even half as good as Hamlet was last year, it's going to be brilliant!

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror -
The wide brown land for me!

My Country - Dorothea Mackellar

Three years ago Queensland was brown from drought - everything was dry and dusty. Now over 75% of my beautiful state has been flood affected and declared a disaster zone. Queensland is brown again, but this time it's because of mud, silt and murky flood waters.

For the past two or three weeks, I've been watching the television and seeing the devastation that the floods have caused in the central and western parts of Queensland. Whole towns were evacuated as the waters raged and towns downstream watched and waited, knowing that they were next. From the air it looked like an inland sea. But it was still so far away.

Then on Monday, the rain started pouring down here and then Toowoomba and the Lockyer Valley were hit with the most devastating flash floods I've even seen and hope never to see again. And that all started to head towards Ipswich and Brisbane.

And it became all too real...Collapse )

Mother Nature may have dealt us some cruel blows over the last few weeks but I have never been prouder of being a Queenslander.

"As we weep for what we have lost,
and as we grieve for family and friends
and we confront the challenge that is before us,
I want us to remember who we are.
We are Queenslanders.
We're the people that they breed tough, north of the border.
We're the ones that they knock down, and we get up again."

And because there is humour in every situation...Collapse )

11 Robin Hood icons

These were made for hoodland's Icon Pass It On game.  The first 10 were part of the game, and the 11th was made about mid-game but didn't get posted.

Far out I love being a Queenslander. That was the most stressful last 10 minutes I have had in months but it was so worth it! Now this video was played before the game started and just illustrates why Queensland is so much better than New South Wales...

Queensland - beautiful one day, five in a row the next!

5 series in a row!!!

QLD 34 def NSW 6


Well that was a brilliant game!  Well, except for the last two minutes when the Blues actually managed to score.  Other than that little blip it was Queensland all the way!!  Other terms that come to mind are New South Fails, Blosers, and New South Wails  :)

It started with the Blues running onto the grounds to a roaring ‘Boo!’ and Queensland running on to a thunderous cheer!  I really have to go to one of the Brisbane games because the atmosphere just looks amazing!  Queensland scored in the 3rd minute and we just kept on scoring.  And talk about bringing back the biff!  There was plenty of passion on show tonight.  Well, Queensland had passion, NSW just had desperation.  There was also some underwear and butts on show as well...

More butts and biff...Collapse )

Go the Mighty Maroons!!!

QLD 28 def NSW 24

We're one up and half way to five series in a row!  And the Blues have got the blues again.

But I'm too tired to write more tonight and I can't find the photos I want so I'll just post my jersey instead!

Well the time has come for another review.  This is for the month of February, so I’m more than a little on the late side, but unfortunately, real life occasionally demands my presence!  It’s also just as the new Doctor Who is starting to air, so it’s not the best timing, but if I don’t do this now, it’s not going to happen.  February is for episode 2 of series 4 – The Fires of Pompeii:

Doctor Who Calendar - February

And if my memory serves me correctly, the soothsayer pictured prominently here is none other than Karen Gillan, our new companion!  But on to the review:

This is the first time that Donna gets to travel through time, and it’s quite spectacular.  The huge scale of the sets really impresses me throughout this episode.  And it may be Donna’s first historical story, but the Doctor still gets excited.
