kaizoku: Doctor Who: get in human womens (03)

This afternoon, I was listening to a long Clark/Lex podfic and started to drift off (the fic isn't boring, I was just sitting in a warm room.) So, I went to lie down in the bedroom where it was cooler and lo, several hours later, I woke up all discombobulated and headachey. Note to self: you're supposed to be sleeping at night! I seem to have trouble with this concept.

Jean Auel (Clan of the Cave Bear author) has the final book of the series out. I think I read the first three books and then got a bit bored, but I might check out it because... CAVES! I was amused by this part of the interview:

GR: Describe a typical day spent writing. Do you have any unusual writing habits?

JA: A typical night. I'm a night person. Generally what happens is that I get up about two in the afternoon, and I make what is my husband's lunch or dinner and my breakfast, and we spend some time together in the evening. Then he goes to bed and I go to work. I often catch the sun rising. Mornings are terrible for me, so I'd rather sleep mornings.

I haven't become that extreme yet but there have been a lot of days where I go to bed just as the boy is getting up. (He points out that you can really only do that if you're a best-selling author. Or unemployed.)

Speaking of the boy, he discovered a new source of amusement that rivals lolcats: British Royals Hats. OMG, so ridiculous! The Ascot seems to draw the most awesome/awful hats. This is Princess Bea in what is colloquially known as "the guitar pick."

Princess Beatrice hat perched on forehead

If you want to see more, the Mad Hattery is a blog dedicated to crazy royal hats. The most recent posts are not that interesting but I knew when I saw The Queen's pimp hat that we had stumbled upon something truly amazing.

There's this pink monstrosity and something that is possibly the ugliest hat I've ever seen (it looks like pieces of lemon peel glued together.) And hey, Princess Anne giving the camera a very we are not amused look. :D


Oh, my. How did she ever think it was a good idea to attach that to her head?

After you look at enough of them, you start to get desensitized and something like this seems fairly normal (despite looking like a spaceship and covering half her face) just in comparison. Then it takes something truly bizarre like The Queen of Denmark in costume to really make you rofl.

I have no idea what's going on here.


I'm looking forward to the Yuletide stories featuring Old Spice Man.

You know what? I think that I didn't tell you all my awesome Chuck Norris fact that I made up. Yes I made up a Chuck Norris fact and yes, it is awesome.*

Ahem. Here goes.



*By the way, without Chuck, I don't have any power. But with Him, Stephen Colbert tells me, I really can do all things - and so can you.

P.S. Yay for new Magnetic Fields!

P.P.S. I found out that Marina left Bonde do Role and this makes me very sad. Pedro and Gorky are looking for a new female singer - in fact they're going on some show in Brazil to find one - but what are the chances she'll be a kickass riotgrrl with pink hair, a raspy voice and the ability to make up songs about how James Bond is gay?! nada, meus amigos.
All you people doing NaNo think you're insane? Well, count your lucky stars that you're not doing the Three Day Novel-Writing Contest... "one of the most grueling, self-loathing, perfidious experiences one can be put through in a 72 hour period, comparable in many ways to protracted, non-anaesthetized dental extraction at the hands of flatulent Satanic nuns or repeated forced exposure to televised glow-in-the-dark bowling."

Somebody called my house around 9:30 this morning and left this "message":

"Over here, over here. Don't touch that! Put that down! Get the telephone book, over here. Underneath, Marcus. Right in there, there you go. Right to that book, right in there. No, no, no, right there. Yup. Let me see it, let me see if that's it. Is that it? Let me see. Let me see it. Show it to me. Is that it? No, no, no, no, no. The one on top, right there. The one on top. Right, right - Marcus, Marcus... (Little boy's voice: Yeah?) No, down, down, down. Up. Up! Right there. Marcus, right in there. Down. Look, Marcus. Marcus. Go down inside that shelf. Reach your hand in there, reach your hand right straight. Up, up! Up! Up! Right there. Oh, that way, that way, just a little bit that way, that's it, right there. Bring that. Bring it, bring it. Is that it? Let me see it, let me see. That's it, that's it, that's it. Good boy. That's it. Good boy. Just a minute. That's a telephone book. Let me see, you can have it right back, put it right back for Grampy. Here. Yeah, you can put it right back. Let's see, Elmore Store. Elmore Store. Elmore. E-L, E-L. Just a minute, E-L, E-L, E-D, E-L, E-L-L, E-L. El-more, El-more. E-L, E-L, E-L-M, Elmore Store - 2296. Okay, put it right back where it was please. Please?"
