2012's so far most often asked question: WHY AM I STILL AWAKE? Closely followed by, HOW COME IDIOTS ARE RUNNING THIS COUNTRY, which seemingly can apply to any given country at this moment in time. But let's talk about that other one, the still awake one, because I am wondering--why AM I awake, and why aren't I asleep? I have to wake up tomorrow. What is keeping me from sleeping? This is a very interesting query. One day I hope to master the brainpower needed to accurately answer this extremely complicated and delicate issue.
For now, I'll tell you about some very exciting things that are happening in my life. I ran into Elijah Wood and we had a drink, no I'm lying that never happened instead I now have a thyme, rosemary and mint plants. But it's okay, because they're AWESOME. No I seriously love these plants, they're adorable and yummy and very very healthy. It's okay to judge me at this point. I JUDGE MYSELF. And then I remember how much I love my plants and I stop giving all the shits
NOW, THIS IS A JUICE BAR IN OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD!
I'm saving going there until I've thought up enough lame sherlock puns to say when I order whatever
Speaking of Sherlock, I'm kind of--part thrilled and part uncomfortable by this gurruila reaction to the last episode? I mean, it actually reached my
university--in, like. NOT THE UK OR THE US. And I've seen it all over the city, too, scribbles of 'I believe in Sherlock!' And the thing is, and I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking this, while it's really cool that the show has this brilliantly creative fanbase, and that emotionally it's really getting to people, I would also like to see the same huge mass reaction to, aaah--real-life issues? And I know that happens, to a certain extent, but it's just this demographic that I think could make such a huge impact, this creative collective that designs posters and slogans and I would love to see messages of social awareness and not-taking-bullcrap-from-narrowminded-as
sholes written bathroom stalls, plastered all over the university wall, shit like that! I don't mean to, you know, undermine fandom or trivialise it, and I know we are not a collective in the sense that we are all similarly privileged or from the same background, so everyone's experience is wholly unique etc etc and many of us may already be doing influential work re: social criticism, but I'm just saying--I REALLY like this movement. I do. I just love it so much I'd like to see more of it. In a different context.
ANYWAY SOMETHING ELSE. Did I ever tell you guys my dad's a huge Dr Who fan? He is. Since he was a kid! He's the dork who got me into it in the first place. THIS WAS HIS CHRISTMAS OUTFIT:
Also, the fest is not over yet! YOU CAN STILL COME AND JOIN IN THE FUN! There's loads of prompts still waiting to be filled and loads of fills just waiting to be read. OFF YOU GO THEN OFF WITH YOU *shoos*
AND THEN I ALSO MADE A DRAWING. Based on these FHKJDFHKDJFH cute puppies
You know how I feel about drawing, no need to repeat the self-deprecation act, PLEASE CONTINUE WITH A SPOONFUL OF SUGAR SET TO NO-PRESSURE-THO MODE :DMerlin | M/A (OR BJ/CMORG, same diff, really) | PG | ( Read more...Collapse )
