About This Blog
A blog about my life, universe, etc. At any given time you might find something endlessly interesting or just me ruminating on something else, which no one (not even myself) finds interesting. That's the way blogs go, I suppose. Anyway, I was eleventh in line, and you weren't. Hah!

About My Family
My mom is a
lawyer in Pickerington; my stepdad and dad are computer guys, and my stepmom (who works with my dad) is an engineer. My sisters are, in order of age, a photographer, an artist, and a person too young to have her own website. My brothers are, in order of age, living up north, and again, a person too young to have a website. At some point soon I'll be collecting links for my aunts, uncle, and cousins. ^_^

Hey, I could do Song Lyric Tuesdays!  
I like Eugene Volokh, and I think the Song Lyric Sunday thing is cute (especially because it inspires me to play these often really random songs on my computer, which is always fun).

I don't actually think this will be an every-Tuesday thing (I am trying to avoid any promises-of-continuity as much as possible, because it's like setting myself up for failure). It just happens to be Tuesday today, at least on the East coast (and in Ohio, which as I will now remind our California friends, is not on the East coast), and so today's song lyrics are for Song Lyric Tuesday. Just wait until Song Lyric Decembers!

As you go through life you'll see,
There is so much that we don't understand.

And the only thing we know,
Is things don't always go the way we planned;

But you'll see every day that we'll never turn away,
When it seems all your dreams come undone:

We will stand by your side, filled with hope and filled with pride.
We are more than we are -- we are one.

Even those who are gone are with us as we go on;
Your journey has only begun.

Tears of pain, tears of joy; one thing nothing can destroy
Is our pride, deep inside -- we are one

We are one, you and I; we are like the earth and sky:
One family under the sun.

All the wisdom to lead, all the courage that you need
You will find when you see -- we are one.

It's from The Lion King II, and sung by Matthew Broderick (yes, that Matthew Broderick). It's on my "Inspirational and Happy Music for Sundays and Such" playlist. It's really a sweet song, and it appeals to my underdeveloped yet still somehow surviving sentimental side. Sometimes I think that the real reason I was able to fit in mentally at Disney (when I didn't strongly identify with the classic characters or storylines, being a mostly-1990's movies/Disney TV toons/"MMC" fan) was because the music really makes an impression on me. Anyway, this song is a great one for doing retrospective pages about happy experiences in your life (as you might guess, the page I'm talking about is not about my time at Disney). Which is a great way of transitioning us to my announcement: my new Star Wars line page.

Which is right here.

That's where you'll find my Starlight Jar updates, links to all the folks at the Line whose website addresses I actually know, and (eventually) links to all my essays about the Star Wars fan experience (including my much-anticipated philisophical discourse on the True Meaning of Being Spoiler Free). Now, I know that at least one person came here from LUN yesterday, and another person likely from the line (or someone who knows me pretty well -- you searched Google for "Lloannna" after all -- but not well enough to have a copy of my blog address) was here too. I bet you were both here looking for this page, which wasn't technically going to go live until after I recieved some feedback. But you know what? Let's live dangerously. The layout and content may change if someone has noticed something I haven't, that needs, well, to be changed. Let me know if you're that person.
