Mom Update:

My mom's at Westerly Hospital as of this morning, apparently with low BP and messed-up labs/EKG. I spoke to her on the phone, and since songdog's going to go down there, she figured I could go tomorrow. She's getting two more units of blood, which she dismisses as "I've been anaemic all my life", to which I said, "Yeah, but you didn't need to get a transfusion every couple of weeks all your life." She said the EKG is abnormal, but that could mean anything, and she didn't know why, either.

She was doing completely fine until two days ago, so I don't know. I hope it's just meds and there's not anything funky like an internal bleed of some sort going on, because that would likely mean more surgery and that's just not cool. She's got a ton of stamina, so I'm concerned, but not worried at the moment. At least I'm trying not to be.

And because I need an injection of good moodiness,here's some

post-as-you-go picspam! In other words, I'm (fairly) randomly pic-surfing, so I have no idea what I'm posting until I do it. Most of these caps are from the lovely and talented stormymouse's site (definitely an EFS--Essential Fannish Site. Go tell her how much you love her for it). A couple of them are sara_merry99's caps.

Firstly, a fandom gymnastics lesson.

Demonstrated here is the proper presentation of Paul Gross Arms, Modified Form #1:

Paul Gross Arms, Modified Form #2 (AKA Paul Gross Arm). Note placement of legs, as proper leg positioning is essential to correct stance:

Look, it's Baby!Geoffrey with Anna Scorpio:
3.

Baby!Geoffrey does research for a role as a priest without losing his fashion sense:
4.

Baby!Geoffrey angsts very prettily:
5.

OTP OF ALL TIME, YES:
6.

This is Fraser. He wears three shirts, because dressing in layers is warm:
7.

This is also Fraser. Sometimes he doesn't wear as many shirts, like in prison where it's warmer:
8.

Fraser wears blue a lot, except when he's working for Truth, Justice, and the Canadian Way. Then he wears red serge, with a very high collar:
9.

Unless of course, he's wearing this, which he doesn't do nearly enough:
10.

Fraser. Benton Fraser.:
11.

This is the AntiFraser. I don't know how many shirts he wears. I'm not sure if I want to find out but I'm willing to give it the old college try:
12.

My Geoffrey, all grown up. You know that he's half-crazy, but that's why you want to be there [/Leonard Cohen] :
13.

This isn't Geoffrey, he just plays him on TV:
12.

Well, okay, it started out random.

I'm suddenly craving a smoothie. Mambo smoothie, to be precise, from the Garden Grille.

Oh, and also, does anyone get the Hallmark Channel? Because, I'd really like a clear recording of this.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, so lovely. So very lovely.

Oh Geoffrey, be mine. (And several hundred other womenses, I'm not proud, I can share.)

Fingers crossed for your mum.

Best wishes for your mom. Hopefully this will be simple to deal with and she'll be back home quick as a flash.

Yikes. I hope your mom gets better soon. That sounds like one of those situations where you don't quite know if you should just be mildly worried or super worried. Either way - it's a bit scary IMHO.
These pics are lovely. He justs gets better and better looking. In fact - I prefer him now with the little wrinkles and lines. I will examine these VERY closely again before I go to sleep and hopefully he will walk through my dreams tonight! eeeww - I didn't mean that to sound kind of stalkery but I am afraid that it did.
*shudders at own fannishness*

I agree, although people think I'm nuts when I say that I think Geoffrey is more attractive than Alex Bresnyachuk. Alex is pretty and a little gratuitous (and what's with the brown contacts?). Geoffrey is seasoned and gorgeous because of it.

YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM picspam /licks monitor

I hope things work out for your mom ::sends healing vibes:: and that things aren't serious.

And in regards to Paul Gross, I ordered a few more of his... films today. Two aren't, apparently, great works, but they were under $10.

And did you see the preview clip of Trojan Horse?? ::flails:: It looks amazing!

Wait, that's already been established, but still..

It's like saying Sky Blue. It's obvious, but sometimes it has to be said.

And thanks for the prayer. *hugs*

This was really supposed to be a random picspam. I blame Fraser, really.
I like that show where they solve all the murd3rs

*hugs back* I saw my mom this morning, and she's feeling a bit better. They're waiting for her coumadin levels to go down and then they'll do an endoscopy. The suspected problem is a bleed somewhere. Apparently they're not thinking cardiac, so that's good.

I have a potential Passchendaele-linked present for you. I was trying to find some of my relatives who live in Saskatechwan, and came across a Canadian Military Records site...so I did the obvious search and came up with this:

Now I'm not 100% certain that this is the right person - he has an older brother by the same name - but all the details and ages seem to sort of fit, given what we know.
