perverse paragon ruth/harry love

Outside the gates of heaven, there lives a unicorn

Ah, Modern Talking.

Ooh, so many things to report. Let’s get the ranting out of the way first.

Have spent the last two days in my parents’ office, helping out and trying to set up a wirless network. TRYING. Two days, two fucking days, on the phone to PC World, AObloodyhelL and Netgear, and the eventual conclusion? The router was faulty. MOTHERFUCKER. FUCKING HELL. FUCKING HELL.

Yeah, so. Router faulty. Arse arse arse. One the other hand, easy to sort and not my fault. Just GAH (though I did have done from Efes for lunch yesterday).

Also, this all meant I was in an office with broadband for two days and didn’t get to download a single bloody thing. While I was up in the offive, I used skype for the first time. I was speaking to China so it was a fuzzy line.

Also, the screen on my parents’ laptop is fabulous. It’s got really clear definition, and a complete keyboard which is always nice.

Waking the Dead was great, as per usual, and yay Stephen Moyer!! Looking very thin in the face and mm, nice arms.

I actually had last Monday’s episode recapped the other day, but didn’t get a chance to post it. Still, I'll post it today. I was hoping to get my Spooks 406 one done last night, but no.

One of the most frustrating things about recapping Spooks is that so much happens, and you recap it, and the plot moves on A LOT, and then you look at the timer, and only five minutes of the episode has passed since you last checked. *dies* Still, plenty of H/R to keep me going. Oh, and it took me till episode 7, but I managed to hold off watching the BBC3 ep, so I shall be watching tonight. And hopefully finishing the 406 recap, because I am very behind. I’m aiming to recap two episodes of WTD too over the weekend, so that should be fun! And I have to try and make a not-too-shabby icon tonight for spooks_creative, because the subject is Adam Carter and I can’t pass up a opportunity to make an icon about his obsession with his wife’s underwear, can I? Also if you are joined up to spooks_creative, make sure you post stuff this week ;)

Tomorrow I am going to meet Claire up in town, where we will have dinner, and cocktails, and then go and see Night Watch woo. And this weekend I am mostly spending at home, typing. *headdesk*

I close my eyes to seven, oh this world is not my own

Ok, well, fine. Am pissed off. Have left WTD recap on laptop. Fucking moron. GAH. Still, hopefully two recaps to post tomorrow. And I might post some spooks fic today.

Also, I just had a crunchie blast (they’re new, they’ve got chocolate and crunchie bits and cereal bits and popping candy bits) and now the inside of my head is popping. Who invented popping candy stuff anyway?

Pop pop fizz fizz

Paul at work has just informed me you can get cadbury’s fingers with crunchie bits in them. Oh. My. God. Mustnotbuymustnotbuymustnotbuy.

Ah, my flist tells me that delgaserasca has posted fic. Yay!

‘Cause I’ve got a paper bag and you’ve got the one with all the holes

Check me spamming. That was on The Vault the other night. Yay for having a bajillion music channels. Also, the new El Presidente song Rocket is tres cool. I like them.

I almost forgot! New Girls Aloud video. Pretty dresses, crappy dance routines, song a bit crap. Not the train wreck that was Long Hot Summer, and Kimberely looks good in her dresses. Hell yes. Maybe I should make an icon (aargh, I was going to do Night Watch ones too, but they’ll have to wait till the weekend, oh, and there’s the mOnica ones I wanted to do…damn the BBC schedulers). Oh, hang on, this means I get to play with CS2, oh yay.

I am going to spend this while weekend on my computer, aren’t I? And in the midst of all this, I am going to attempt to watch an episode or three of The Wire, because I haven’t even made it past the fourth episode yet *sigh*.

Played with http://www.sloganizer.net last night (followed a link from delgaserasca’s userinfo). Oh, the fun. And German too! Yay.

Dear LTC2,

If a site you are looking for has disappeared off the database, might I respectfully suggest YOU ASK ME FIRST before you go to the ACE? Because, hello, I am the only one with power to remove things from the database!!! And for fuck’s sake, stop bothering PB with every little query you have.

Just shut up, please.


I could rant a lot more about her, but I’m restraining myself because there is another long rant to come first. You lucky people.

Hey, you know what? While I’m here, have some German song lyrics (written by Germans, in English, so 80s and so worth it):

Collapse )

And another thing, yay for noisy shoes. It’s really very difficult to clomp about loudly in wedge sandals, but now it is cold and I’m wearing proper shoes again, it’s THUNK THUNK THUNK THUNK THUNK THUNK all the way!

And as a final random thing out of the dark recesses of my brain, I don’t know if you’ve seen and advert for a magazine called Psychologies, but the line on the tube adverts is: Would you like you if you met you? To which I say: yes.

What about the rest of you?
