prydain fan discussion: posted for adoan45

(syringaxpersica: because of some trouble posting this entry here, i'm just posting this for adoan45)

In the interest of revving up our discussion, I’d like to ask a question similar to one I saw on a Harry Potter site for grown-ups. The question there was “How do you know when you’re a Harry Potter fan?” The answers were hilarious—things like “I want to practice legilimency on my elementary-school students to see if they’re lying about their homework.” OK out there, how do you know you’re a Prydain fan? As you go through an average day, what kind of Prydain-related thoughts do you find yourself thinking?

This reminds me of my (now long-ago) youth. When I discovered the series at age 11, I was so utterly enthralled I wrote a little piece called “A Touch of Prydain,” in which I imagined jazzing up otherwise dull days in sixth grade with all kinds of Prydain-related imaginings. I’d wear a pin and pretend it was Adaon’s brooch, or I’d tell the school bullies loftily that they should “Go jump in the Marshes of Morva.” (OK, it didn’t do much good, but it was fun for me.) So what “touches of Prydain” light up your life? Do tell . . .

well, if people ask me for free stuff my usual reply is:
"nothing is given for nothing; not in the marshes of morva-or anyplace else, for the matter of that."
or something along those lines
I used to wear a crescent-moon pendant. Although it annoyed me no end that it was impossible to find one that didn't have that "man in the moon" face in it.

I have been known to tell my husband I needed to go "meditate", to which he responds, "When do you want me to come wake you up?"

And we occasionally refer to upcoming meals as "crunchings and munchings."
This is really random, but I'm fortunate to get to work with really fabulous cloths. Sometimes a piece will come in that just looks Prydainian. I'll label the garment/accessory accordingly (Taran boots! (actually bought these))as long as we have them on the floor. NO ONE I work with has any idea what I'm talking about.
("eye-lon-wee? [KJ] this is Channel.")
It always makes me happy when I see something that reminds me of my favorite series.
I always tell my friends, "(Friend), I am not speaking to you! At least, not for a little while." And I stamp my foot sometimes in a Eilonwy fit of rage.
