We celebrated Library Lovers day today. We had lots of heart shaped food for morning tea and balloons with hearts on them, and heart shaped 'confetti' sprinkled all over the table. It all looked really amazing, and lots of people came. Hopefully l'll post a photo soon.
I've just put a photo up, its not locked so anyone can see it!
Just letting you know that I am fine. In case you forgot.
Thank you dude. I was just thinking about that the other week. It's good to know you're fine :D
I've found that this new Earth Rat Year is turning out a lot happier and wonderfuller for me than last year's Fire Pig Year.
I hope the same happens for you. Soon.
My life's not bad, especially not when compared to the last couple of years of strife, I'm just blue which magnifies things. But thank you :)
Tonight I'm headed to a "subvert the dominant paradigm" v-day dinner ... partners + special friends + etc.
I think the plan is to go out and have awesome Malaysian food, and then go make a 12 person puppy pile in someones lounge room
The Invasion of Time, while not an all-out classic, is a lot better than most fans give it credit for. Discuss.
Can't remember seeing it so I'll take your word for it.
I agree. It has a lot I like about it, and while people may moan about the hospital interior they used, it's not like they had much choice.
I also like that the Sontarans got there ahead of the daleks. And did it by using an entire race as shock-troops/fall-guys. How cool is that?
And Tom plays the serious elements of his taking control of Gallifrey straight.
I love it for many reasons. Tom actually acts his socks off in the first few episodes, as you point out.
And the first time I saw it as a kid (on a repeat - Season 17 is the earliest I saw premiere), the cliffhanger to part 4 blew me away. I'd seen and loved "The Time Warrior" and "The Sontaran Experiment", and suddenly there were *lots* of Sontarans. Even in "The Two Doctors" they only manage a pair of them. The impact of seeing them, little rod guns raised in the middle of the Panopticon, with that fantastic piece of music behind them, was electric.
I'd put it as one of the best Who cliffhangers *ever*, actually.
I've always rather liked it. Flawed, but nifty.
And Sontarans are excellent villains.
I worked out how to use bittorrents and am getting the third season of ARIA as it appears with subtitles. Oh, and I downloaded the OAV this morning.
Which reminds me, must call Slow Glass and see if he's got any of the manga in to send to me yet. :)
It's finally cooler here in Perth! We have been sweltering.
I'm making a Thing every day this month, along with over a thousand other people. It's over here
if you want to take a look, I'm having a lot of fun so far!
And if that's not jolly enough, how about, ummm, CHEER UP OR I WILL KICK YOU!!1!!111!one!!11!!
...Did that work?
I got to pat puppies today and they were really cute.
And my comments about my magical vegan cunt are amusing many people in various lj vegan communities :)
I like puppies. And I love their smell.
As to your cunt's magical vegan properties - prove it! *wicks*
What you want a list of all the omnivores I've fucked who are now veg*an?
Awww... that's the boring way of proving it to me *wicked grin*
hehe, well that's the best you are getting :P seriously when will be the next time I see you in person.
No idea. Probably when you next visit Canberra.
If you wanted to conduct a proper experiment, I'm sure you would have no shortage of volunteers.
LOL... yeah but how many of them would be willing once they know the potential risks...
(and besides I haven't been laid in a stupid length of time and even then I needed to import)
Oh and the best news of the afternoon one of our dogs that has been here for 4 or 5 months got rehomed :)
Stop trying to seduce me with tales of Bukkake Kangaroos!
from your other post today reminded me a line from the movie "South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut."
"I just gave you sweet loving 5 minutes ago. Are you trying to kill me!?" - Chef.

Chef is so much better than me, I need at least ten *grin*
Today was the second Valentine's Day which I've had with my wife Jax that you met last year in Melbourne.
I love it when Lee and I are out in public and my sms alarm goes off. I read it and Lee asks "Well?"
"Danny just cocked me," I reply, in front of anyone who's there, usually the time-weary check-out chick. Lee always hugs me with a smile and answers "He's so caring."
My phone rarely has enough credit to reply (I have teenagers) but I do want you to known I'm always thinking of you.
You're definitely one of the people I "properly" met while running SwanCon last year that I'm really looking forward to seeing again. I think you're a cool guy and hope to get a few more chances to chat with you during this year's con.
I hope your blues are chased away soon :)
All our belongings, including books and CDs and DVDs and DVD player, arrived yesterday. We celebrated by watching the Fast Show and Futurama DVDs. I can't stop laughing over the fast show guy who says "they've got this virtual reality. Its like regular reality, but you're wearing a hat! Brilliant!"
You'd like it out here.
The escalators in the Esplanade station are ridiculously high; as I walked up the escalator, the only person ascending, I had my earphones in and I sung and danced as I completed my ascent, and it filled me with such glee. Perhaps other saw me or heard me and thought, what a weirdo, and for a moment I paused but then I realised I didn't care, and I kept on singing.
I saw a puppet show on the weekend which made a raw chicken dance. It was very athletic.
I also now have official Melbourne Writers' Festival business cards. It makes me feel Important.
I just saw a local theatre product of The Sum of Us. One of the Geography teachers from my department at school played the father. His performance was so moving he had me in tears at times.
Actually, that's not that jolly. Well, sort of. It's been a hard week and the thought of going out to see a play was the thing that kept me going...
My crazy overworked job which has been insanely, unreasonably and unseasonably busy has momentarily slowed down today(tonight). Tonight's shift actually went the way it was meant to, for once.
Which was wonderful.
I learnt how to make origami stars!
