mokie: A package of meat wishes you happy holidays (holiday of the day)
It's Mozart's birthday. You could make peace with your inner Salieri.

It's Thomas Crapper's birthday. You could find an inventive solution to a problem everybody else has written off as a necessary evil.

It's the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, otherwise known as Holocaust Memorial Day. You could weep in a corner over the horrific things human beings can do to one another.

But it's also Lewis Carroll's birthday, and still Gothivale! And since I'm stuck in that awful, stressful pre-February stretch of work where everything is terrible, nothing goes right, and the cracks are starting to show, I'll be having a Mad Tea Party, complete with Black Raven Tea, mini devil's food cakes, striped fingerless gloves and stockings, and my Hannibal dolls.

About dream/reading tags

y-* tags categorize dreams.

For types: beyond the obvious, there are dreamlets (very short dreams), stubs (fragment/outline of a partially-lost dream), gnatter (residual impression of a lost dream).

For characters: there are roles (characters fitting an archetype), symbols (characters as symbols), and sigils (recurring figures with a significance bigger than a single dream's role/symbolism).

x-* tags categorize books.

Material is categorized primarily by structure, style and setting. If searching for a particular genre, look for the defining features of that genre, e.g. x-form:nonfic:bio, x-style:horror, x-setting:dystopian.
