keladry_lupin: (Fist Pump (Dara))
I have almost finished a major project that's so far overdue I don't even want to say it for fear you'll all take me off your friends lists on principle because I'm such a flake. I need to proofread it, which will take an hour or two some time this weekend, and then I can send it off.

Thanks, S, for not firing me. Especially since you have your work cut out for you in the proofreading -- I've thrown my hands up and typed "INDECIPHERABLE" or "SHIT, I DON'T KNOW" at least a dozen times.

Yes, it's backed up online. If I lost it now, I'd do myself in. (Not really.)

In my travels today, I found the best thing in the world: Martinelli's sparkling apple cider in little individual bottles. It costs a bit more than the equivalent amount in the larger bottles, but it's perfect! A little six-pack of green bottles with sparkling cider in it. I discovered a month ago that Martinelli's is somehow the perfect thing to drink with chocolate. I like it even better than milk if I have a brownie, so I'm snacking on a bit of lovely dark brownie and a little bottle of apple cider as I transcribe more of QI.

I just set a chicken in the crock pot to cook overnight (thanks for the instructions, [livejournal.com profile] quietselkie), which wasn't an easy task with two felines twining themselves around my ankles. The Beastie Boys are looking up at me with puppy dog eyes and saying, "We smell the chicken. Why are you torturing us with the chicken? We know it's here somewhere; we can smell it, and we wants the chicken, Precious." (Yes, cats can make puppy-dog eyes. If you doubt it, come over to my flat when I open a can of tuna.)

Little fandom rant: )

She's talking about her flat again! Run! )

I like to post my to-do lists after I've actually done some of the items on them: If you click this, you must really be bored. )

The computers are in the kitchen, and the cats aren't allowed on the kitchen table or counters, so I've had to set up chairs on either side of me so the Beastie Boys can be close to me without sitting on the table itself. Boo-Boo is on the chair to my left, mostly curled up, but one of his front paws is stretched out and resting on my knee. The gesture makes me grin like the sentimental idiot that I am.

I was never particularly fond of Lucy, actually. I know, it's blasphemy, but she always got on my nerves.

As for me, I really do have to say it's Bertie and Jeeves. Even though the books only provide the slightest hints that one or the other might be gay, and the 23 episodes that Fry and Laurie did don't even have that much, it's one of the funniest buddy shows ever. And if I read fanfic that shows they're more than buddies, well ... I'm entitled to a bit of smirking when I ogle watch Bertie getting into the soup and Jeeves gracefully pulling him out.

Other favorite TV couples include:
House and Wilson (though I have a soft spot for House/Cameron, too)
Worf/Jadzia
Niles/Daphne
Frasier/Roz
Alan and Stephen
Jean/Lionel

I finished The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society five minutes ago. What a wonderful book! Being me, I zoomed through it to get to the ending (so that I wouldn't read the last page first), and now I'm going to go back and read it more slowly. I've already missed church because I sat down and read this, and I can't bring myself to be sorry at the moment.

Bambu (lots of blessings and good luck be showered upon her for her good taste in books) recommended it to me because I mentioned my liking of stories told through correspondence. I have two WIPs that are part-narrative/part correspondence, but I haven't read a lot of books/fics that are told that way. Thank you, Bambu!

In other news, emphasis mine:

QI has become the first UK's first panel show to have its own pop song and music video.

The pop song, "Peter Cushing Lives in Whitstable", features QI stars Stephen Fry, Alan Davies, Jo Brand, Bill Bailey and Phill Jupitus.

During the third (or 'C') series of QI, Davies recalled seeing a band called The Jellybottys who played a tribute song to the Hammer Horror star Peter Cushing.

After QI was aired, Deek McNeill from The Jellybottys got into contact with QI and gave permission for his song to be adapted.

You can see the video here, presented by its producer Justin Gayner:

Although it is not available as a single, the song will feature on the upcoming QI C Series DVD, available for pre-order from Amazon:


http://www.amazon.co.uk/QI-The-C-Series/dp/B0017I1G48/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1216807100&sr=8-1

Okay, I don't like Amazon, but when it's Amazon UK or when I'm getting my tea (all right, Shiv, it's tisane), I will use them. *jumps about the flat happily*

Edit: I've pre-ordered it! Amazon UK will ship it out September 1st-ish. If they're as efficient as last time, I'll get mine before some of my British friends do, which doesn't make sense at all.
