all in one place

[Untitled]

Yesterday I got a card in the post and my mum guess nearly everyone but the person who actually sent it, which was [info]krazycat! I wisely did not point out that the handwriting did not match any of the people she guessed and neither did the postmark. BUT YAAAAAAY for [info]krazycat!

Also yesterday we went to the Star Wars Exhibition in London which was cool – there’s a lot of stuff to see there and they have a “jedi school” thing. It is slightly surreal to see a stormtrooper striding down one of the hallways in County Hall, but perhaps no more surreal than Darth Vader battling Optimus Prime.

a place where i can die

Also, when the hell is this film getting released on region 2 dvd? I would get the region 1 after waiting since I saw it last September in Portugal (I don’t think it ever got shown here, which is a shame because it’s a kick ass film) but I don’t think my poor little 14+ year old tv could hack attempting to display NTSC.

you used to be my romeo

Randomly, one of the houses in my road was on fire today, though as only my dad was at home I have no idea why it was on fire.

Also, I have tickets for this Star Wars thing on Saturday! Yay!

There were other things, but I can’t remember them now. Somehow I am busy, but have no idea what I have been doing. Hm.

we will miss Angus tonight, we will miss his sword

Memetime!

Pilfered from [info]static_nebulae ๐Ÿ˜€

Leave a comment and I’ll pick 3 of your interests and 3 of your userpics that I want to know the who, why and whatfor about.

This is what [info]static_nebulae asked me:

1. BPAL

The acronym for Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. They make perfume oil with hugeass, flowery descriptions to go with the different scents. I like it, it makes me smell like cheesecake or apples or stuff and I use it in an oil burner too. It’s a bit like pokemon really. Gotta catch ’em all.

2. Helm’s Deep Throat and 3. Ulmo in Furs

These are both references to the sadly missed MESPT rpg that I had a bazillion cracktastic characters for. Helm’s Deep is a fortressy thing in Rohan mentioned in The Two Towers by Tolkien and Ulmo was like a demi-god being from The Silmarillion and Ulmo in Furs was like…a reference to Velvet Underground’s “Venus in Furs” as far as I remember. Only with Ulmo. And yeah. I think for a lot of it, you really had to be there and immersed in the whole thing to still find the stuff that pops up in [info]mespt_quotes funny. Ah. Nostalgia.

Iconses!

OTP = One True Pairing, a fandom term for like… your ultimate ship.
The icon shows Monica Bellucci’s boobs from the second or third Matrix film. Those two were kind of interchangeable. It is I think, in the top 3 of my icons featuring Ms Bellucci’s bosom.

I just liked this picture, even though I do not like red. I found it when I was looking for pictures to do with prayer for an Easter booklet thingy. Also, I remember visiting a place like the place you can see in the whole of the picture when I was little. Only it was a snake temple and when I went back recently, didn’t look the same as I remembered. Anyway. Yeah.

This is what Scully says to Mulder in a season 3 episode called “Pusher” which was about this guy who could make people do stuff that he wanted. Mulder says that he puts some kind of “whammy” on them and Scully, ever the sceptic says the quote from the icon. I really like the end of this episode with the Russian Roulette with Mulder and Scully and the bad guy. It roxx0rs. I’ve been on a huge X-Files kick for the last few months and only have season 9 to watch from the box set I got at Christmas.

what you need is what they’re selling

On Saturday I zooomed off to Walsingham and did stuffs there. And I don’t remember what I did yesterday or really what I did today so it can’t have been that important. My OU course has started so I’ve been reading The Taming of the Shrew and various other course texts and stuffs.

Also, I got a nice pay rise, which I wasn’t expecting.

Next weekend, hopefully, we’ll be going to that Star Wars Exhibition. Should really sort out the tickets for that at some point.

What did you do this weekend?

Blogger is hate

It really is. Somehow, whenever I log into blogger and make the slightest change to my settings or anything, it respacks everything out into the rss feed. Which republishes it on my reBlog and thus again on to facebook. And necessitates deleting of duplicate material. Bah.

i’d miss all the people and places i love

On Wednesday I went to see Paolo Nutini with my dad. It was pretty fun. The first support was some woman that I don’t know the name of and her songs weren’t that memorable other than me thinking that “well, at least she can sing.” The second support were a band called “Ghosts” which I only know because it was on their drum kit and the singer said it a whole bunch of times along with “This is a song called Ghosts. Like us.” They were more or less an indie-rock Duran Duran lite. Although when they came on stage some kid next to me exclaimed “OH NO! They’re EMOS!”

Which is an easy mistake to make with the hair and the clothes and the mooching.

Paolo Nutini was Paolo Nutini. Considering he’s only got the one album, (and I think Ghosts have just the one album too) he managed to make it last a pretty long time. There was a cover of “I wanna be like you” from the Jungle Book in there and for some reason I remember a Radiohead cover but that one might have been a hallucination. Ghosts did a couple of covers too – there was that Pussycat Dolls song and some song from some band that must be fairly popular at the moment, but because I don’t listen to radio one or capital and rarely get the chance to listen to xfm anymore…. i had no idea what it was.

๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway, my OU course starts this week and I’ve checked that the software I got sent in the post all works fine. Just gotta get on with the reading now, which theoretically shouldn’t be too hard. However spending most of the day at work has severely impeded my aimless loitering time, which is when I use to fit in the whole reading for fun and profit malarkey. At least now that the days are getting longer, I’ll be waking up even earlier and be able to get some reading time in then. It’s times like this when I miss dial-up – I used to keep a stack of books next to the computer back in the day so I’d have something to do while pages were loading. Now… the waiting time is gone and I kind of miss it.

Mmm nostalgia.

There’s some kind of Star Wars thing going on somewhere in London in a couple of weeks so really, if I want to go check it out, I guess I should find out what is actually happening with it.
