Things we said today....

Or at least recently. Most of my rambling randomness tends to come from and go to my Tumblr these days, since so much of the fly-by-night party has moved there. But here are few recent things/facts/thoughts/babblings of interest.


I thought I'd posted what happened last night, but it seems (appropriately) that I did flake it. Basically, I'm here to tell you that boiling eggs and watching Youtube is a very bad combination. An hour later, I had NO IDEA why I smelled something burning in the kitchen.

I won $12.00 in the Mega Millions!
This is the most I’ve ever won on a lottery ticket and the first time it ever amounted to more than the price of the ticket itself, since I usually get five Quick Picks.

The joys of working for the 1%:

Client: Could you please make sure that the vehicle is a big Escalade SUV and the seats are pulled down?
My co-worker: Will there be any other passengers in the car?
Client: No, it's for my 9 suitcases.

What is your Benedict Cumberbatch name?

How psychotic are right-wing republicans?
All of sudden Vladimir Putin is their fucking HERO. Oh, sure, he used to be head of the KGB, and you know an actual communist, (remember, their sworn enemies) but at least he hates gay people!

Thanks! I'm not sure that my remaining LJ-Flist is necessarily interested in the kind of thing I post to Tumblr, but I figure they might find some of it amusing.

Ha. tumblr. too hard. too much scroll. reduced to telegraphic. communication. with inappropriate punctuation.

...I'm surprised your eggs lasted a whole hour. Once I went from, 'hmm, what's that smell' to 'neighbours must be burning something' to 'BLAMMM!'. Then I rememebered. Bits of egg everywhere and one blackened saucepan. Sigh.

I'm surprised as well. The eggs were a loss, but they were in-tact and the pot wasn't too bad. I aired out the kitchen and everything was fine. I did feel like apologizing to the hens for wasting the eggs, since I have been splurging on the organic, cage-free kind.

Tumblr works well to keep me sane during work---although I realize the sanity proposition is questionable. I can scroll through pretty pictures and reblog all the puppies and other things I like.

No, it's for my 9 suitcases.
As someone who's just spent the morning fitting all my and hubby's motorbike gear (helmets, boots, *armoured* jackets), tech, and everything else for 10 days in the States into 2 suitcases and 2 bits of hand luggage, I'm having hysterics right now.

Motorbike travel will teach you to pack economically---and make your saddlebags into the TARDIS---bigger on the inside.

Those vacuum seal shrink bags are great for squashing stuff into panniers:-)
Almost as good as a Tardis in fact.

I'll make sure to wave to your general direction when we're waiting for our connection at SFX on Monday!

you and i are old enough to remember the days when conservatives were dumb enough to associate gays and Commies with eachother.

They know that the people who were being oppressed were likely to band together under whatever flag was offering liberation, so to that extent they had a point, but this embrace of an totalitarian just because he agrees with their psychotic prejudices is hilarious, but also terrifying.

Well, Bush always liked Putin...remember how he could look in his soul or something? Maybe that's what he saw...ick!

And his little nick-names. Putin was Poot-poot. GAH! I'd say calling George Osborne, "Jeffrey" is pretty small on that scale of loathesomeness.

"POOT-POOT"?? WAS BUSH A FOUR YEAR OLD?!?

He was when it came to nick-names. Don't forget that Karl Rove was "Turd Blossom."

I think that is a prep-school thing, which, calling Dr. Freud, I typed as "perp-school", first, but I definitely share your revulsion.

I like seeing posts and they were fun.

My BC name is Backitup Thundercats (wasn't there a TV show named Thundercats? Possibly animated?)

Shipping meme...

Hope it's okay to ask for three? Answer just the first if you like :)

Joan/Sherlock (Elementary - I realise it's probably obvious but...)
I do, because the snark is just so delicious and even if nothing ever happens for various reasons, the chemistry is obviously there and they're both so incredibly damaged it would be right up my angsty alley.



Bobby Darin/Sandra Dee
I do because it's tragic. Again, the damage, the neediness, the way they couldn't fix each other and in her case the fact that she apparently never got over him.

(Okay, I never said I shipped HEALTHY!)


David Tennant/John Barrowman
Not so much now, because they're in difference spheres at the moment, but I think back around Utopia and the two years afterwards, when David was still the Doctor. John's crush was freakin' palpable and while only a crazy woman would tin hat her own fics...let's just say if something had happened, I wouldn't be surprised.
