Must have fanfic. Spirk/Snarry/both ...



No matter what anyone other than me says, Herschelle Gibbs is a darling.

And Graeme Smith is a nasty piece of work. Was, Is and Will Always Be.

Everyone should follow Albie Morkel's twitter, only for the inadvertent Super-LULZ --- both pics and tweets. A real trueblue entertainer, albeit involuntary :D :D

Graeme Swann's twitter is very pleasant to read :)

Dalai Lama's is one twitter I will never, ever 'unfollow'.

And finally, Finally, I have got the twitter I had even opened that damn twitter for. The moron I was interested in following/terribly worried about only opened his this week, that unmitigated nitwit ! Don't ask !



Now, to fanfics ...

So. I was away on farmville ... and some rl things ... for a month. And my lj's been getting spam, eh ? I hope the spammers enjoy it when I get all the ip-s and post them public.



Btw, must share this :-

“On this Memorial Day,” said Barack Obama last Monday, “as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today…” --- it would seem to be somewhere at http://www.steynonline.com/

Twitter material

Is my mind permanently in the gutter/USpolitics/both gutter-and-USpolitics or is this twitter update I just read - from a slightly oblivious silly ass - 'If you love the bush follow @kingscamplodge for daily sighting updates..' really hilarious ? Especially as I have no doubt the post-er didn't think it funny :D

Thank heavens for the Dalai Lama ... At least his twitter updates are comparatively sensible. Like 'A holistic view brings realistic action'.

Still giggling about the update about the 'bush', though :D

*Severely Confused*

Add to Memories Tell a Friend

I opened a twitter to follow some people of interest to me. Like the ST-TOS people, Graeme Swann, Carrie Fisher, PTerry, Neil Gaiman, Fred Flintoff, the Dalai Lama and so on. I don't tweet. Nevertheless, I seem to have gained two followers. Why ? :D

Why on the blessed Earth would anyone follow my twitter ? Weird.

Ah yes, it was IE

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
...


And all this time, while I fretted over the problems I had whenever I tried to post in ij, or open specific friend's pages in ij - forget posting comments ! - it was 'Internet Explorer' messing with the process. The difficulties happened intermittently for dw as well, and it all made me slightly unhappy and unable to interact in those places. And now I am using 'Safari', and I can actually do all that which were being stopped up by that damn 'IE'. Well ! I am using Windows, and I expect IE to behave ! If it doesn't, and I find out, then I don't have any qualms about abandoning it. Not at all.

My oven has died. I want to get a new one. I don't know whether to get a plain oven or one of those new-fangled microwave-and/or-oven functional thingies. I must decide before it is Monday morning. I can't live without a functioning oven ! A steamer isn't quite the same, though 'twill do in an emergency such as this for a day or two.

April 16th, 2011

I wonder ...

Add to Memories Tell a Friend

I wonder if my ij problems were browser - read 'Internet Explorer' - related ...

I'm on 'Safari' now, and it seems pretty smooth :)

I have missed ij :) I'm happy to be able to be back on it :) :) :)

Things in my mind ...

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
...


Google is really, really all kinds of wonderful in many ways, and the translation system is totally awesome - for my particular needs ...

... but, ...

whenever I type in something to search for, it comes up with all kinds of suggestions by itself, and if I'm careless in clicking, something in the subcategory of my search begins to happen. This wasn't bothering me till yesterday - much, that is, except the occasional swearing on my part - ...

... but then, there is this person I'm googling by full name (let's say 'X Y'), and I google him frequently, and suddenly yesterday I see - for the first time - an option which is 'X Y dead' as number 3 ... and this being not actually the case, I ... Dammit, that just hurt ! Why on Earth doesn't google just suggest the correct spellings while something is being typed for a search rather than suggest options like ... like that !?



Btw, one out of two ain't bad :D *Evil Cackle* And it's the one I wanted more if it had/has to be a case of 50% of what I wanted :D :D



I'm developing a really serious soft spot for Eric Bana. I actually watched ST2009 the other day because of him :D (I'd resisted watching it till before that because I couldn't acclimatise my mind to watching completely different people playing the characters I grew up watching). I loved his 'Anchor' in 'Finding Nemo' too. He really does a great caricature of the Australian accent there :D :D And of course, I find him devastatingly lovely to watch. Somewhat disturbingly lovely ... er ...



I'm reading f-pages today. After more than a fortnight. I was actually suffering from withdrawal :D albeit a little bit, but still, withdrawal. I have just started reading them, and will try my best to comment as much as I can. I love you all, a lot, and I hope you are all well, and I hope everything with you gets better and better :) :)


'K, going off from here to read f-pages now :) Will check on remaining comments as soon as possible.

I've been having problems with ij in opening, posting in, and the worse of all - with reading entries from f-pages now and then. As a result, haven't cross posted some entries from lj/dw/jf (ajat/ajatshatru). Today ij seems alright. So far. Haven't been to f-pages yet. Let's see.

About me and a rec

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
...

Good Lord, guess where I found a quite young Jude Law ! In Jeremy Brett's 'Shoscombe Old Place'. No wonder he got back on to the Sherlock Holmes bandwagon :) I hated that film, btw. Absolutely. Anyone other than Brett as Holmes makes me feel completely confused and icky. Oh well.

And I am now applying for a scholar's programme anyone in my position would give an eye and an arm for, and have a snowflake's chance in hell of getting through, but I'll finish the application anyway - following which I will get back to being depressed because I don't have the remotest chance of getting through.

I seriously, seriously need to get rid of some comms in lj I no longer want to be associated with. But I have no time to give to doing that nowadays. I can't believe that's actually true. Btw, reccing this lovely post at DW. Go read it, everyone.

"Netanyahu, NKorea on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube where's Ahmadinejad?


Previously North Korea confirmed that they were now on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube which was followed Monday by the announcement that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had done the same.

While that's all very well and good the one we all want to see is that man for all seasons President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran.

Where better to learn about peace and democracy than from a man steeped in the traditions of both.

If the President is willing then these are just some of the goodies Planet Earth can look forward to :

Twitter :

1. Got up this morning in a good mood and ordered security forces to use live rounds on the demonstrators. That should bring peace.

2. Ordered the media to desist from mentioning the opposition - freedom of speech is alive and well in Tehran.

3. Courts have ordered a women to be stoned for adultery. Stopped it immediately. I'm away that week so they can wait until I get back.

4. Media idiot who called Bruni a prostitute shot. I do the jokes here.

5. In order to bring peace I have trebled our military capability and almost completed our nuclear one. Just think how peaceful it will be when I can remove billions of noisy people.

Of course he'll have loads of friends on Facebook :

1. George Galloway - never met a despot he didn't like.
2. Kim Jong-il
3. Roberto "dancing Feet" Mugabe
4. Various Somali warlords
5. Hugo "Happy Cow" Chavez

On YouTube :

1. When I nuke Israel
2. When I nuke America
3. When I nuke Saudi Arabia
4. When I nuke Jordan
5. When I nuke Egypt

Let's face it for good all-round despotic mania you'd be getting your money's worth by just following this ambassador for world peace.

I am re-learning so much

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
...


It is being a difficult time. Mentally, for me, I mean. Me - am fine. Mine - all fine. Except for the normal everyday little contretemps that occur to everyone. But I am having to discard almost everything I have been told since I have seen for myself how entirely wrong all that was. Socially, that is.

I don't particularly want to set out all that I have seen and learnt by myself and which has made me discard most conceptions I was taught since being born ... But it's a big shock all over. Much too big. It's taking a good deal of time to sink in. Not good. Not good at all.

However, I do feel all that had hardened me up a bit ...


And yet, even after all this, I am still capable of worrying sleeplessly for someone I don't know personally (but know a good deal about) who behaved pretty badly (but not criminally) and then, getting caught out, tried suicide. And, I very much fear he will try it again. Still too much of a softie, am I ?



In other news, I have a month old kitten I am doting on. He was born on the 30th of August :) :) :)

'I'm so depressed' ...

Add to Memories Tell a Friend

The bad part of being depressed - for me, that is - is that when those words - 'I'm so depressed !' - are in my mind, I actually hear them in my head as they are said by Marvin - voiced by Alan Rickman --- which makes me burst out into giggles. There is something hugely wrong with this scenario ...

I hope everyone has been well. I was awfully ill last week, and before that things were such that I haven't been able to go properly into lj, ij, jf and dw for a long time. The end result is that my email accounts are a mess and I daren't dnld mails to outlook express till I clean them up online first. I'll be doing that from afternoon today. I feel almost nearly myself today.

Almost.


Also, I plan to buy the paperback of 'Unseen Academicals' as soon as it is out !
