I'm actually starting to answer my character meme comments without letting months go by, go me!

First one, from [ profile] lucifuge_5 (HI, LUCE, HOWTHEHECKAREYOU?): Geoffrey Tennant!

* How I FEEEEEL about this character.

I love him, which is obvious. I love his talent, his eccentricity, his devotion to Ellen and to his art, his dry wit, his intellect, his hair, his clothes, that little-boy-lost look he has. Oh, and he is so, so pretty and doesn't even know it.

I'm with Leonard Cohen: I know that he's half-crazy, but that's why I want to be there. Did I mention I love him? I do, so very much.

* All the people I ship romantically with this character.

Ellen, period. Sure, there's obvious unrequited Geoffrey/Oliver, but it's one-sided on Oliver's part, so it doesn't count for the question.

* My non-romantic OTP for this character.

Geoffrey/Anna is my platonic OTP for the whole show. They are so very good for each other in a BFF way. And in an AU where Ellen doesn't exist and never has, I would ship them romantically.

* My unpopular opinion about this character.

I think he's straight. As in not gay, not bi. That being said, I still like the idea that he and Darren had a thing back when they were in university. ;)

* One thing I wish would happen/had happened with this character in canon.

SEASON FOUR, DAMMIT. I would have loved to see him and Ellen trying to run Theatre Sans Argent together.

Day 03 → Your favorite television program

no contest whatsoever )

If I ever, ever find a show out there that's this well done, I'll be seventeen kinds of surprised. More surprised than when I found ZERO bad reviews, even after a LOT of looking--like Google out to, I dunno, something like twenty places.

Reminder and update: Tonight we'll be watching the first three episodes of Slings & Arrows, starting at 8 PM EST.

We'll be using Y!M, so come on over up to a half-hour before the ep, and we'll invite you in. Whee!

*crossposted to lots of places*

ETA: Just IM me (primrose or primrosetrail--try both, not sure which works) when you sign on, and I'll let you know what room.

So. [ profile] andeincascade, [ profile] tibbystardust and I decided it might be a nice idea to have a Slings & Arrows night, and we thought this Thursday would be a good time to do it! So this is your Official Announcement:

S&A Night
Thursday, Dec. 10

We'll be watching the first three episodes, so if you've never seen S&A before, this is a good time to start! It's also good for people who've seen it a bazillion times before, because more S&A is never not a good thing. Yay!

Oh, and I'm not sure what chat medium we'll be using yet, but we'll work it out and let you know here and at [ profile] ds_noticeboard ASAP.

On the one hand, its...but on the other, I just. And then there's, well. And, um, yeah.

*throws up hands* What do you guys think?
primroseburrows: (SA: gtpoint)

Geoffrey = Kermit
Ellen = Miss Piggy
Oliver = Fozzie Bear
Darren = The Great Gonzo
Richard = Scooter
Nahum = Rowlf

Am I right or am I right?

But who is Anna? And Maria? Hmm. I'll have to think about that one.

Okay, finishing packing now because I'm leaving in something like TWO HOURS OMGOMG.

I started writing this, what, a couple of weeks ago? Grr.

Comment if you want to do this and I'll give you a letter. Then you go and list ten things you like starting with that letter.

[ profile] malnpudl gave me G, because she's all subtle and random like that.

This post is brought to you by the letter G and by the number 10! )

I wanna be [ profile] _scally when I grow up. And learn to vid. And speak Russian.

I mean, just look at this gorgeous thing:

primroseburrows: (SA: against their own succession)
I either want this:

Or something like it. Like maybe the same style, only with Anna Conroy instead of the Karate guy. Because she kicks bigger ass anyday.

I do not have an Anna icon. I will fix this egregious omission later. Now I'm off to the wilds of Tewksbury, where it's probably even colder than it is here (which? Is damn cold).

Also? I'm getting a massage tomorrow. And a pedicure. Oh, bliss.
primroseburrows: (SA: gtheaddesk)
Someone might could maybe should try and talk me out of this.

On second thought, don't bother. Probably wouldn't work, anyway.

Up from Work-and-Potterdom for a PSA!

Scott Simon talks S&A with Paul and Martha on NPR.

Nothing new, but. Paul AND Martha. On National Public Radio. National as in America.

"Alas, poor world, what treasure hast thou lost!"

All in all, I'd say it's been a good, long run. The reviews all seem to be raves. I only wish I'd been there for more of it.

Here's to you, sir. May flights of angels sing you to your rest.

*raises glass, drinks heartily*
primroseburrows: (SA: gtpoint)


Also, [ profile] patchfire and/or [ profile] peacey, I'm running out to the store (well, walk out to the store, as opposed to driving, since Ellen is in car!hospital), then I'll be back. If you're around, we can discuss Travel Plans.

Yay, I have Travel Plans to discuss, whee!

Mom update )

And because I need an injection of good moodiness,here's some

post-as-you-go picspam! )

Well, okay, it started out random.

I'm suddenly craving a smoothie. Mambo smoothie, to be precise, from the Garden Grille.

Oh, and also, does anyone get the Hallmark Channel? Because, I'd really like a clear recording of this.

I'm ecstatic (and very unsurprised) that Slings & Arrows is getting yet another rave review.

But, um.

The main player in ``Slings'' is actor-turned-director Geoffrey Tennant (Paul Gross, a Canadian Tom Hanks best known in this country for the TV cult claassic ``Due South''), who became interim artistic director of the festival....

I really like Tom Hanks (Philadelphia is one of my very, very favourite movies in the world). Very talented guy, and from everything I've heard, a very nice guy. But he and Paul Gross are nothing alike (aside from being talented and, hopefully, nice). Their acting styles are completely different, they don't look anything alike, they don't sound anything alike. WTF? It's also a bad way to promote the series, because not everyone likes Tom Hanks. Not to mention that Tom Hanks as Geoffrey makes me wince a little, no matter how much I like him as an actor. To be fair, Paul Gross as Forrest Gump makes me wince a lot.

Original article is here, but I'm not sure if it's accessible without signing up.

  • I went to bed at 12:30 a.m., go me. Yes, you read it here first, folks. So now I'm trying to talk myself out of talking myself out of going to church. I'm still sleepy like I was last night, and I'm really beginning to think it's Adderall-induced fatigue. I hate that, but darnit, the stuff works for me jobwise. So, anyway, I really should go to church and actually try to be social. I don't have a church up here in the wilds of Northern RI yet, and I've been to this one and I like it (and not only that, they even have a CUUPS group), so, um. Yeah.

  • I have a cell phone again, yay! I was eligible for an upgrade (actually, I used [ profile] mr_t00by's upgrade, since he used mine when his phone broke last year). This thing has all sorts of features, like woah, a camera, which I don't really need, but apparently all the new ones have one.

  • Speaking of cameras, I haven't forgotten the picspam meme. I don't have a camera cable and the port for my SD card doesn't appear to be working, either. As soon as those problems are taken care of, I'll post pictures again. *sigh*

  • The first time I heard about this, I pretty much sat back and waited for this. I'm apparently not the only predictable one in the universe. *loves* Also: Prospect of a S&A spinoff = good. I'm not holding my breath, but still. Much with the yay at the very notion. Also #2: Dear Toronto Sun: Please update your picture files. You can even have one of mine. Honestly.

  • I'd better stop procrastinating and actually get a passport. Trivia: I look naked in my old one, because I was wearing a sundress with no straps, and it was a head shot (and hey, I was twenty years old, I could get away with dresses like that back then). Also, if the US government is forcing me to get a passport, shouldn't they pay for it? I mean, yeah, if I was going to France I'd say fine, because France would make me have one, too. But I'm going to Nova Scotia, fergodssake, and I'm pretty sure it's the US that cares if I have one or not, not Canada. Without a passport I can go there, but I can't come back. *narrows eyes* Hmmmm. "I'm sorry, work/family/etc., I'm not allowed back in the country. I know, it's a tragedy." *buys warm clothes, dresses in layers, enrolls here, joins travelling fiddle troupe, has weekly ceilidhs, wins lottery, imports family, buys us all houses*

  • I finally had to go to the mall last evening, because that's where the Cingular store is. I did my part for Capitalism by purchasing books, how surprising! I got Making Sense of the Troubles: The Story of the Conflict in Northern Ireland (because, y'know, I need another book on Irish history), and also Stephen King's Dark Tower: The Complete Concordance (because the DT owns my soul, say thankya).

  • I never noticed it before, but Stan Rogers? Had a sexy voice (is there another word for "sexy", because I hate that word, and is it okay to say dead people have sexy voices?). I never really noticed it until I put "Fisherman's Wharf" (my current favourite Stan song *g*) on my iPod. Maybe it's just me, because I'm a sucker for husky baritone voices. Here, listen:

    Stan Rogers - Fisherman's Wharf

  • I basically have to go to ComicCon New York, don't I? Because, *sputter*
    Now I just have to figure out what day and buy tickets for [ profile] mr_t00by and I before they're gone. If they're not already.

  • Oh, and [ profile] joandarck? I can't get the whole Barrett's Privateers/Irish Rover/DS/Crossover!Fixit!AU out of my head. I think I might really really have to write it. I'm not sure if I want to thank you for this or run screaming from the room, because I'm thinking serious story, not crackfic, and it's gonna mean research. If I do it, it'll be the first really long thing I've ever written. Now to figure out what's Irish for Kowalski.

  • I've sufficiently talked myself into going to church (because I'm NOT a hermit, honest!), so I'd better go get ready. And then, yay, housework!

I posted this link elswhere (waves to [ profile] malnpudl), and since I finally (re)figured out how to make clips in MovieMaker, I figured I'd post it here, too, because hard work shouldn't go to waste, an' all.

It's from S&A 3.04, so it's got spoilers up 'til then. I think it's my favourite scene in the whole series, although I'll probably come up with others. :D

you dragged me into this and then you bailed on me

*hugs Geoffrey*

ETA: More clips in the comments. It's all [ profile] missapocalyptic's fault, and I love her for it.

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Macbeth, Act V, Scene V

Hello from the night shift, wherein I make twice as much money (if it's a double shift) to be twice as bored as I am on the evening shift.

Entertain me? You know the drill. Drabbles, picspam (fannish and otherwise), amusing anecdotes, meta, tell me about your day, rec me a fic or a movie or a book or something. *asks nicely*

Anyway, so, okay, the play )

As for my wet!room, it ended up being a brief, minor leak, and I actually managed to sleep in my own bed after a fashion. I got to bed at oh-dark-thirty, but when don't I?

And now, a silly meme, because I can:

geek, dork, or nerd test )

Fannish epistolary meme-thing in next post, which may or may not be upcoming. I know, y'all can't wait.

P.S. After seeing a high school production of the Scottish Play, I really do recommend that elementary schools never try it, no matter how much Mark, Susan, or Bob might try and convince you otherwise. So mote it be. *nods*
