Hard At Work?

Hardly working.

Here is a bunch of stuff to distract you from the fact that I did nothing all day yesterday.

“Private Eyes”

I see you, you see me
Watch you blowin’ the lines
When you’re making a scene
Oh girl, you’ve got to know
What my head overlooks
The senses will show to my heart
When it’s watching for lies
You can’t escape my

Private Eyes
They’re watching you
They see your every move
Private Eyes
They’re watching you
Private Eyes
They’re watching you
Watching you
Watching you
Watching you

You play with words
You play with love
You can twist it around, baby
That ain’t enough
‘Cos girl
I’m gonna know
If you’re letting me in
Or letting me go
Don’t lie
When you’re hurting inside
‘Cos you can’t escape my

Private Eyes
They’re watching you
They see your every move
Private Eyes
They’re watching you
Private Eyes
They’re watching you
Watching you
Watching you
Watching you

[Instrumental Interlude]

Why you try to put up a front for me
I’m a spy but on your side, you see
Slip on into any disguise
I’ll still know you
Look into my Private Eyes
They’re watching you
They see your every move
Oh, babe, Private Eyes
They’re watching you
Private Eyes
They’re watching you, yeah
They see your every move
They see it
Ooooh, they’re watching you
Private Eyes
They’re watching you…

Gnomes

Gnomes are distant relatives of the fey, and their history tells of a time when they lived in the fey’s mysterious realm, a place where colors are brighter, the wildlands wilder, and emotions more primal. Unknown forces drove the ancient gnomes from that realm long ago, forcing them to seek refuge in this world; despite this, the gnomes have never completely abandoned their fey roots or adapted to mortal culture. Though gnomes are no longer truly fey, their fey heritage can be seen in their innate magic powers, their oft-capricious natures, and their outlooks on life and the world.

Gnomes can have the same concerns and motivations as members of other races, but just as often they are driven by passions and desires that non-gnomes see as eccentric at best, and nonsensical at worst. A gnome may risk his life to taste the food at a giant’s table, to reach the bottom of a pit just because it would be the lowest place he’s ever been, or to tell jokes to a dragon—and to the gnome those goals are as worthy as researching a new spell, gaining vast wealth, or putting down a powerful evil force. While such apparently fickle and impulsive acts are not universal among gnomes, they are common enough for the race as a whole to have earned a reputation for being impetuous and at least a little mad.

Combined with their diminutive sizes, vibrant coloration, and lack of concern for the opinions of others, these attitudes have caused gnomes to be widely regarded by the other races as alien and strange. Gnomes, in turn, are often amazed how alike other common, civilized races are. It seems stranger to a gnome that humans and elves share so many similarities than that the gnomes do not. Indeed, gnomes often confound their allies by treating everyone who is not a gnome as part of a single, vast non-gnome collective race.

Today I am really going to get stuff done. No seriously. I am going right now to get stuff done.

See ya’ tomorrow.

More soon. ~SC
