Random bullet point post, because yay for learning something new in html! Wait 'til I tell croosa. :)


  • I was going to see Twelfth Night in Providence this evening, but my friend got sick and so now I'm not. *sigh* I've got my pretty dress on and everything.
  • This is a galaxy of wrong. *headdesk* You'd think a store specialising in "sacred" items would notice the problem. (link from dragonflymuse)
  • sharon28 makes pretty vids. You can find them through this post. I'm partial to "Everybody Hurts" and "Something Stupider" (because it's RayV and Sinatra, which go together like gnocchi and gravy).
  • Happy Belated birthday to Neil. I can't believe I forgot to mention this yesterday. Cry your pardon, sai Gaiman. *g*
  • Apparently a whole entourage will be going to see mr_t00by play Mackers. I'm not sure if he's happy about this or freaked out.
  • I've decided to definitely plan for Celtic Colours in 2007. Will I need a passport by then?
  • This is interesting. UC isn't for everyone, but this post is a good illustration for comparing homebirth to hospital, with or without a midwife.
  • I feel like writing, but I need to clean before I can do that, and I don't feel like cleaning. I should, though, before my house is condemned.
  • Chasing Rainbows is melodramatic, hokey, stereotyped, and overblown. In other words, it's a nighttime soap opera. I'm hopelessly addicted and utterly charmed nonetheless. may just be in danger of losing my heart to Booth Savage. At least the part that isn't already gone to the guy with the braces.
  • Tomorrow is Remembrance/Veterans/Armistice day. I feel like I should do something to commemorate it, but I don't know what. My father was in WWII and Korea. Suggestions?


In other news, malnpudl? I get it now. Oh. My.



In further other news,I now have pictorial proof (thanks to sam80853) that over forty and hot!female is anything but an oxymoron:

Chasing Rainbows is everything I loathe in a television program. Thus, I'm completely confused by the love I have for it. :-)

God, Martha looks amazing! She's only got hotter with age.

I dunno. I find myself smiling through the whole thing. Maybe it's the w00bie factor of the characters. I love Benny Rose so much it isn't even funny. And if I had to fix Jake up with someone besides Chris a female? It would SO be the (grownup) whore with the French accent. She's snarky. And interested. *g*

Also, it's like looking at scrapbooks of baby pictures, only really, really not.

And yeah, um. Oh, Martha. I'm now fully convinced that it must be only safe to look at her kids through a special telescope, because they've got to like, outshine the sun or something.

Oooh! Thanks for the vid link! I hadn't seen that one before. That was VERY good for what ails me. *thigh sweats* I've said it before and I'll say it again: Gordon Downie can fuck me through the floor any time he wants. *happysquirms*

BTW, I'm entirely too excited about having just bought one of Rob Baker's guitar picks. It's embossed with his name and everything. *is hopelessly lame fangirl yay*

How's your supply of TTH? For reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, I somehow ended up with two copies of their Fully, Completely CD. In honor of your epiphany (*uses sparkly pimp crown icon for the occasion*), I'd be happy to send you the extra if you don't already have it. Just e-mail me.

I saw Chasing Rainbows several months ago and adored it entirely too much. The soundtrack is unforgivable, but other than that it's a happy-making thing, imperfect but, as you say, charming -- and slashy as hell. Not to mention featuring shirtless baby!Paul in his nipple-frame suspenders not once but twice. *rrowrr*

The Hip are obviously the love child of U2 and R.E.M., which is a very good thing.

I don't have any whole CDs, just a bunch of random songs (I'm madly in love with "Thompson Girl"; it was one of the first I heard by them). I'd love to have the CD! I'll email you later tonight. :)

Chasing Rainbows is a little gem, is what it is. Highly flawed, but who cares? It's entertainment that works. And like I said, it's exactly like and not at all like looking at baby pictures. And Booth Savage makes me smile, although I worry for him (Do NOT tell me anything, not even a word, I'm only on episode 8 and refuse to be spoiled).

I'm getting some stuff packaged up for a Post Office run on Monday or Tuesday. If you still want the Hip CD, could you e-mail me with mailing instructions? LCBERGSTROM at COX dot NET

Absolutely! The credits-tune is bearable, but the stuff they accompany the romantic or angsty scenes with? Makes me squirm, really.

Not to mention featuring shirtless baby!Paul in his nipple-frame suspenders not once but twice.

You just had to repeat that, hadn't you?

Fine, I'll talk to your journal instead of you! :P

I wrote last night - yeah, yeah, I posted something but it's not all that good. I wrote some other stuff, though, and I'm pretty sure it's GOOD, y'know?

I have alcohol and an open evening... get on, already!

I'll get on in a little while, I promise! I have no food and alas, no alcohol. Must rectify this.

Remembrance day. Do as we Brits do. Two minutes silence at 11am. Probably best to do it at your 11 as ours is in 2 hours and you probably won't have read this by then!

Martha is gorgeous. Damn her eyes.
