First a couple of LJ housekeeping matters ...

I was tagged a couple days ago by egirl for a quote meme (random quotes can be found here.



You have not converted a man because you have silenced him. John Viscount Morley

Beware so long as you live, of judging people by appearances. La Fontaine

You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom. Malcolm X (1925 - 1965), Malcolm X Speaks, 1965

Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young. J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, 2003

Be not ashamed of mistakes and thus make them crimes. Confucius (551 BC - 479 BC)

Now to other matters ...

My mother has decided to stay where she is. Someone must have been able to talk some sense into her.

Still bogged down trying to write my 100 word thesis summary - better get back to it.

Good quotes. I'm at home trying to write today too. How about I do the 100 word summary, and you do the introduction to a special issue on Gender and Violence Prevention in a planning/geography journal?
Well considering your "work in Toronto has been cited as ‘best practice’ by the United Nations Commission on Housing Services (UN-Habitat) and the International Centre for the Prevention of Crime", I don't think I'm qualified to write that particular intro!

I'm this far with my stuff:

Title: Buffy and Veronica: Female Heroes? Genre, Gender & Identity in Teen TV.

Summary: This is a comparative study of two characters who break the traditional televisual representations of gender and trangress familiar generic signifiers of feminine weakness and victimhood.

Heh, back to the books.
Oh, and congrats on not having your mom breathing down your neck!
Oh, thank you so very much for the birthday wishes! I'm having a great day thanks in large part to LJ friends like you. I love your quotes. The Confucius one sort of speaks to the week I've had. I think I'll keep it in mind. Thanks again for the kind thoughts.
