hobbit_feets: (c'lebs || my heart in the speakers)
Letters.  I miss letters.  Proper letters, that is to say.  E-mails are fun too.  The composition of a letter is an art, I think, that's largely been lost.  Besides which, it's a marvellous feeling of accomplishment writing and posting a letter.  I dunno.  My mate Berni moved to New Zealand for a year when I was twelve, and I really enjoyed writing letters back and forth then.  If anyone on my f'list feels similarly, my e-mail is Im.going.nowhere.very.slowly@gmail.com.  If you're adventurous and feel like writing an actual, physical letter, message me and I'll give you my address. 

*snerk*  I feel like a bit of an idiot, proposing to be pen-friends as if I were ten years old, but hey!

The Hypothetical AU Meme:

Take any one of the fandoms you know I write AND give me another time period (Ancient Rome, Regency England, etc.). I will then explain what story from that fandom I would AU in that era.

Dear  [profile] gogogidget

I really don’t know how to tell you this, but our horoscope doesn’t match.  I think I realised it when I saw the shrunken head under the bus, and I saw you sit at the crazy monk.  I’m sure you’re scarred enough to understand that I had a sex-change.  I’m returning your memories from the military service to you, but I’ll keep your photo as a memory.  You should also know that I will always try to forget our friendship.

Good luck on your short-term leave from jail,

We Share Our Mother's Health- The Knife

The music video is creepy as fuck, but it's an absolutely genius song. I've been listening to it for a good two days straight.




We came down from the north
Blue hands and a torch
Red wine, food for free
A possibility
We share our mothers' health
It is what we've been dealt
What's in it for me?
Fine
Then I'll agree

Trees there will be
Apples, fruits maybe
You know what I fear
The end is always near

Trees there will be
Apples, fruits maybe
You know what I fear
The end is always near

Say you like it
Say you need it
When you don't
Looking better
Shining brighter
Than you do

But before I do that:

Casting Call:

I think its inevitable that as we read each other's journals we create mental pictures of each other. Post this on your own journal to find out who your friends see when they read about your life.

Two Rules:
1) The person must be in the movies or on TV (but doesn't have to be an actor/actress). The person can be specific to a role (e.g. Jennifer Elhe's Elizabeth Bennent) or just the person themself.
2) You have to post a link to a picture of said person in the comments.

I tried this once before, but got no responses.  Now, I figure, since I have more friends on here who aren't also friends of mine in real life, I might get some actual feedback, what?

But now I have to biff off to Anthropology.  Hmm.  Dashed pity my mind is stuck on the Master being a disturbingly sensual sadist.  I blame Kat entirely; it is all her fault.  Her and the Master who lives in her head.  *shakes fist*

hobbit_feets: (Quite Clever)
There were only three which remained, not at all bad, really.  They are as follows:

2. 'Television. Television is the explanation for this - you see this in bad television. Little assault guys creeping through the vents, coming in through the ceiling - that James Bond shit never happens in real life!'- from 'Boondock Saints'

4.  'Put a bullet to me.  Bullet in the brainpan- squish.'- from 'Serenity'


10.  'I was staring through the cage of those meticulous ink strokes - at an absolute beauty.'- from 'Amadeus'

1. Pick 10 of your favourite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Fill in the film title once it's guessed.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions

I have to say, once I actually set out to do this, it was ridiculously hard to think of ten of my favourite movies.  Because really, I don't watch all that much in the way of movies.  Most of what I view consists of BBC telly that I get online.  Hu-bloody-zzah.

And now for something quite interesting...

~Did you know that ozone is blue, and smells faintly of geraniums? 

~Tmesis:  The only word in the English language which begins with 'tm.'  Tmesis is the process of cutting a word in half by putting another word inside of it, eg: abso-blooming-lutely, or sen-fucking-sational

~After Henry VII died, the day he was moved to the site of his burial his guts were so rotten, and it was such a hot day that his stomach actually exploded.

~20 countries in the world produce diamonds- of these 20, the top five are Australia, The Democratic Republic of the Congo, Botswana, Russia, and South Africa.

~Michelangelo was a butch gay.  Apparently

~Costa Rica is the only country in the world which doesn't have an army.  It was disbanded in 1949, and they have have no need for once since.  Indeed, their constitution forbids the formation of a national army.

~The slowest light has ever been recorded as travelling at is 38 miles per hour.  This occurs when light travels through sodium chilled to a temperature of -270 degrees, though whether in Fahrenheit or Celcius I know not.

~Barbara Cartland invented the aeroplane-towed-glider

~According to Pliny the Elder, eating the heart of a black jackass out of doors on the second day of the moon would cure one of epilepsy

~The only word in the English language which rhymes with 'silver' is 'chilver,' a word referring to a female lamb

~Also according to Pliny the Elder, the surest way to cure a headache is to tie a fox's genitals to the forehead of the sufferer

~The British bee died out in the first World War, and the bees living in England today are actually Mexican bees, and other bees which were imported to replace the British bees, who- apparently- were wiped out by a pandemic of the common cold.

~The ancient Danish army, between 1104 and 1134, consisted of only seven men

~If one goes by sheer number of boats, Disney has the fourth largest navy in the world

~Switzerland has four official languages, none of which is used on their stamps- for those, they use Latin

~In the Vietnam war, in order to prevent soldiers from swallowing their own tongues, American medics would use safety pins to attach the soldiers' tongues to their cheeks

For this information, I thank Stephen Fry and his wonderful show Qi, which, for those of you who are unfamiliar with it, stands for 'quite interesting.'

Just a note- I love the word "fuck".  It's so entertaining, really- so versatile, so much fun to say.  Fuck. Fucking fuck fuck fuck.  Fuckers.  Whee.
