Ah, that pic. I made it into a cover for 'Frogue'.
Have a fab time away!

Were you? *slaps head* Well, of course! SOMEONE had to have taken the picture! I'll go up there and add your name right away, Peachy. FORGIVE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Peachy, now that you're here, which version of "Morpheus and Iris" do you think is closer to the real colours of the painting: the one I scanned from the art book (the larger one) or the one I got from the Hermitage (the one below it showing the entire painting)? I can't really tell from the photos you swooners took of it because of the glare.

Hmm, hard to tell. I don't know if this shot's any less glare-y. It was fairly darkish I guess.

Oh, that's such a great shot. That's the one I was sent, but mine's smaller. I'd say the colour in that shot is sort of in between the two I posted (according to my monitor, of course; they can be rather different). A good way to judge is to look at Ellin, Ariel and Mariole. I've only met Ariel and she's turned away. To my mind her skin looks a little pinker than I remember, but that could be the lighting in the museum.

P.S. Your "guh" icon is hysterical.

That's me, not Mariole! You can't see my Frodoll with his Aussie map shirt on - he's in my skirt pocket. :D

Oh, for GAWD'S SAKE!!!! I am so screwed up. I think I have been reversing names on you two in your group shots for years. That's what I get for never showing up at a Harem event. Was Mariole in St. Petersburg *at all*??????

(Love that icon, too!)

Yes, I was there! And yes, we all swooned, as per the photographic evidence.

It's easy to keep Peachy and I separate:

Peachy is little, like a peach.

Mariole is big, like a mare.

I trust this will help you with any labeling issues in future.

Hee! Great post.

Ha ha ha. But that's no help. I need a picture of ALL of you at once, so I know who's who. Ellin I knew because she has used her own pictures as her icons. That makes her sort of a "famous face" to me. But even Ariel, whom I met (heck, I shared a room for two days with her and her lovely daughter) looked different to me in the picture. But since she was really tall, I assumed she'd be the tallest person in any picture.

The main thing (which I forgot to mention!) is that you got to see this swoony harem icon--and together! Sort of like visiting a shrine, I should think. ;)

As you can see, my plane hasn't left yet. I haven't packed my suitcase yet, but I've got almost three hours. "Puh-LENTY of time!"

Mariole is not like a mare, she just has a loud laugh (New Zealand will never be the same). She also drinks absinthe on the quiet. Which does not show up in pics, alas. For pics, I think we should wear M and P shirts, a la Merry and Pippin!

Love the WTF Frodo icon :D

[changed to a bigger laugh in the icon, since I did laugh out loud:]

Ha ha, that's great! If Mariole's sipping absinthe, you can tell people it's ent draught. That's how she got taller!

If you'd like to take the icon, feel free. It's just a crop-and-reduction of a New Line screencap. Nothing "artistic" was done to it. The "ARGGGGHHHH" is pure film Frodo, available to all. (The tart.) *g*

Peachy is right. My laugh is loud enough to carry through Internet photos. And I am _not_ drinking absinthe, this is coffee! Burning coffee. Flaming, burning, fiery sugar-dripping coffee. With a kick.

Have you ever _really_ looked at the ceiling?

(Ah, Prague. I miss you!)

Peachy, I just noticed Frodo's drink. *dies* ...or at least gets very schnockered.... :D

Hey, you pack the way I do! :D

Okay, fair enough. I know you won't see this until you get back, but there are several pictures of Peachy and I together in my New Zealand travelogue. There's a good one of both of us about halfway down here:

And of course there are gazillions more throughout our adventure. The chapter list is here:

The lady with us is Ms Maggot, who was primarily part of Merry's Mob at K-D.

Pleasant journey!

And I even read your travelogue (it was soooo good)! How could I mess up? Unless I'd mixed you up in those, too? I'll click these open to Relive The Adventure.

P.S. Finished packing except for my toothbrush, toothpaste (still need to use them) and my pillow (have to have my own top pillow, made of goosedown). My husband says the list for me: "Gotcher money? Gotcher ID? Gotcher phone? Gotcher movies?" etc.
