Rewatching Season 6 Episode 16 - damn, I miss Rufus and Bobby! The CW definitely missed  a trick not making those two their spin off show. Just think, we could have had Rufus and Bobby sassing each other on hunts while Jody and Donna did the same but different - it would have been kickass and hilarious, and the Winchesters could have dropped in occasionally so that Bobby could call them idjits and Jody and Donna could talk about them taking their shirts off. Awesome!

Went to see Lion today - now that's more like a film! It had a story that you wanted to follow, characters you sympathised or empathised with, it was wonderfully acted - child actor, little Saroo, you are effing AMAZING! In addition, it had some mightly fine eye candy in the shape of the beautiful Dev Patel *melts in those dark, dark eyes; longs to run hands though that glorious hair...*

So yep, I enjoyed that one ten times more than LaLaLand.

Totally unrelated but amusing - Paul's bother came round the other day and mentioned that he now works with a chap called Andrew Violens (pronounced violence). Sadly, Brian D'eath and Phil Fear have both retired, so Tony can't tell VAT defaulters he will send round Fear, Death and Violence to sort them out.An

And another unrelated aside - I had a stupidly emotional moment this morning, parting with all my sporting paraphinalia but in particular, my hockey sticks and bag. The charity shop came round to pick up seven bags of clothes, bedding and suchlike, and for a brief moment I clung onto my stick bag and nearly didn't hand it over. Even though I know damn well I'm never going to play hockey (or squash, or badminton, or cricket) ever again. Doh. What an idjit.

Well it's all gone now.

Isn't miscellaneous a lovely word? Anyhow, my mini knight has arrived. He seems to be made out of ceramic and is eminently breakable as well as rather small. Painting a mock up of my design is definitely going to be challenging!Read more... )

Mum's garden is looking glorious, and her vegetables are growing well. So well that she is affronted at their abundance. She came to me with two fistsful of broad beans and a look on her face that rivalled Sam Winchester for bitch-faced exasperation. "Look at this, MORE beans! Isn't it ridiculous?" Her face said. I restrained my reply of - you planted the little green feckers, you must have expected this! and just agreed when she said she'd maybe take some when we go see my aunties tomorrow. She already got rid of four bags full of beans yesterday, leaving them on the driveway with a please help yourself notice.

Myself, I'm affronted that she's already given away bags full of gooseberries instead of saving them for me! LOL

I went to Cambridge today to meet up with my JIB roomie, Ana and on the way home I spotted this JDM-alike! So of course I had to take a sneaky paparazzi picture of the poor unsuspecting yet devilishly handsome chap.

He is rather like our Jeff though, don't you think?

Two dreams I had recently, and I don't think I wrote them up so here they are for posterity.

Yep, I know, I'm all out of order, but better late than never, hey.

Day 10: In your own space, post a rec for fannish and/or creative resources and spaces. Tell us where you go to dig up canon facts for your fandom, or where you get all the juicy details about your favorite ship. Where do you like to hang out and squee like a squeeing thing?

Obviously I use superwiki for research, and google images, but there are a number of websites and communities I've collected over the years, so I'll stick them here in case that are any that might be of use to anyone else. Um. This got a bit long. Sorry about that LOL

Yep, it's that time again! I have c 8400 words of spn_cinema fic in need of a beta, if anyone has time? It has to be posted before the end of the month so we have a few days to sort it out.
All sorted, thanks!
It's Supernatural, Gen, based (quite loosely) on the film Warrior. There is talk about brain injuries, and some fairly graphic brutal fight scenes (or at least I kind of hope they are!) so if that bothers you, you won't want to do this one.

Today at breakfast we met up with Brit friends we haven't seen for about 3-4 years which was lovely. Breakfast in this hotel is interesting - we have potato salad with chopped gherkins, egg mayonnaise with chopped peppers, scrambled egg with bacon, salad bits, rice pudding with sliced apple and raisins (which is delicious) and lots of different breads, smoked cheeses and other stuff I haven't really looked at because it's meat.

A day late (again) - this one's for sw0rdy What do you think Dean would love/hate most about the UK?

Dean would LOVE that we have two kinds of pie. He could have meat & potato pie for his main course followed by apple pie with lashings of custard for desert. Within a week he would have put on two stone and Sam would have to wheel him from pub to pub in order to sample steak & kidney pie followed by blackcurrant and apple, or pork pie followed by strawberry & gooseberry...
"Oh fuck, Sammy, I think I'm gonna burst!"
"For god's sake, Dean, I told you to go easy on that lamb, pea and mint pie."
"Yeah, I think the peas and mint tipped me over the edge..."

And Dean would hate that he'd have to leave his Baby behind - but I suppose that would be the same for anywhere outside the continental US so... Ok - he'd probably hate the fact that Sam would be geeking out all the time about the history. So much of it, everywhere you look - old buildings and old stuff. Probably full of old ghosts too, you know? just because it's old doesn't mean it's interesting, Sammy.

Oh lord, this is a fun one. For yohkobennington - Talk to me about notions people have about the British that are true and not true.

Actually this phrasing hits the nail on the head, because most of the things that are true are also not true... and obviously, the notions I will discuss here are my notions about other people's notions, so may not tally with your own, so bear with me. I've just picked ten things at random, feel free to ask me about any notions you may have that I don't cover here!

Thought I'd put both my recordings in the same place. Why not.
Maichan had a different set of questions so I thought I'd do that one too.
So here's the 'official' LJ one which is more about fandom except I forgot to answer the question about how I got into fandom...

Audio recording software >>
and here's the tumblr one which is just random.

Record music and voice >>

Oh, and for all you Yanks who love a British accent - check out this Jaguar advert - it cracks me up every time I see it on telly (and it has Tom Hiddleston so obviously it is made of win)

A random ficlet that came out of a nightmare I had about rescuing a drowning child and having half my fingers severed.  So of course, I had to try doing something similar to Dean.  As you do.

Maybe one day, if I keep working at it, I will be able to write porn like this...

or maybe not!
I can't believe a) this is for real and b) it is actually published!!! (And according to the author's website, award-winning???)

In searching for something else I found something very silly.  And then this story happened...read at your own risk!

Warnings: extreme silliness in spite of it being a death fic. Evil!ducks. Unrequited love. Yeah, IDRK.
Characters: Sam & Dean

It all started when our overrated adventurer, Dean Winchester, woke up in a frantic pumpkin patch.
