Hello, Mr. Cumberbatch

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

(*Forgive me, Wordpress isn’t co-operating and I can’t get the photos to position the way I want them. GRR!)

I can’t help it; I have a crush. On Benedict Cumberbatch, to be precise.

Here he is in his Sherlockian glory.

I really, truly dislike the process by which one inserts photos into Wordpress blogs. Part of me wants to go back to Blogger again, but I don’t want to do that to you dear readers!

Ooo…and beneath that, looking naughty and…bad. Heh.

And one more down below, just for fun.

No, no. You don’t have to thank me. Just go on and have yourself a great day, okay?

Later, gators!

Friday Footage — Colin & Brad!

*SQUEE*

I am in total FanGirl mode today, gang — I just purchased tickets to see these guys:

(No, not in Toronto, but up here in Northern Canuckland. This is just the best promo spot I could find.)

I am so psyched! I’m a HUGE Whose Line is it Anyway? fan, and these guys were two of my favourites. My dream lineup would also include Tony Slattery, Greg Proops, Ryan Stiles, Josie Lawrence and Steven Frost. Mike McShane, too. Oh, and Steven Fry. Ha! Oh, just bring ‘em ALL back! What the hell!

*Happy Snoopy dance*

Crap On A Cracker

The week got away from me.

I’m so sorry for being quiet, folks. I did mean to come back and post all week (or at least most of it) but life just got in the way. :P I didn’t even find anything for a Friday Footage post. Oy.

On the plus side, I Tweeted (politely, of course) at author-extraordinaire Jim Butcher…and he Tweeted back at me! It was a fangirl moment and it made my day. Heh.

Anyway. I’m still impersonating that headless chicken, so I must away. Be good, and if you can’t be good, be careful.

Is there anything Hugh Jackman can’t do??


Thanks to the Smart Bitches for sharing this with the world. :D

No Pictures, Please!

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

Out of idle curiosity, I just spent a few minutes browsing entertainment news sites, absorbing the wild media frenzy that’s all over the next Twilight movie, New Moon, and I actually can’t help but feel somewhat sorry for Pattinson and Stewart and the rest of them (but mostly those two). Frankly, it’s almost frightening just how obsessed the entertainment media is over this whole franchise to begin with.

There are uncountable photographs out there — taken with super-expensive telephoto lenses — that seemingly poke into every single private moment. I can’t imagine having to be on one’s guard all the time, just in case there’s a paparazzo (or more) lurking around. *shudder*

But then, I’m a rather private person, myself. I can’t even imagine putting myself into their shoes, being hounded and photographed all the time. Yeesh. No wonder (some of) these people can’t have normal lives. The rest of us won’t let them. Pretty sad, actually. :(

It’s probably a good thing that writers aren’t hounded like that. Unless one’s name and face are very recognizable — a la Stephen King, or such. Anonymity can be a good thing. :)

(Ha. She says, knowing full well that fame of Mr. King’s caliber is a million light-years away…*sigh* Oh, well. But that doesn’t mean I’d turn it down if it came knocking, though… *ggg*)

Seeing as how I’ve gotten hooked on playing Lego Indiana Jones on the Wii, I was beyond excited to learn about this:


Yay! I know it’s goofy, but it’ll be so much fun! And even crazier? There are rumours about Lego Lord of the Rings for Wii, too. Too! Fun! Hehehe.

I Adore YouTube

I’ve been glutting my inner historian watching Marilyn, Elvis, Beatles and Jim Morrison videos and being reminded about how some days I think I was really born in the wrong era. Oh, well. It is what it is, no?

(And no, there are many, many modern things that I appreciate very much and would not give up for love or money. I’m not pining. Not really. Just imagining.)

This weekend is absolutely insane.

Fun, but insane.

Today I’m having lunch with my bestest cousin (no offense to the other cousins, they all pretty much rock the party :D ) for a good catch-up. Then after that, I have a hair appointment — nothing dramatic, just a bit of a trim and slight reshaping. Post-hair, I should probably run to the one shoe store that I have the best luck in and see if I can find some low boots for driving. (I have my high-heeled, essentially useless but hot-looking dress boots, and I have my clodhopper ultra-warm Sorels for bus-waiting, but nothing in-between. I need something between the other two extremes for day-to-day commuting, etc.)

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND, after that — it’s a double-date of dinner with Rella and hubby, and then James Bond - Quantum of Solace!! W00T!

Tomorrow has its own schedule of busy-ness, but that’s tomorrow’s post. :)

Mine! Mine! Mine!

I NEED this. You have no idea. The very thought of it makes me all squirmy with excitement.

The only question is, where’s the Turbo Boost button…?!?

*Note: While I SAY I need it, I don’t actually NEED it. It’s just one of those things that I’d get if I had wads of cash to blow on anything. Yanno?

Hat tip to the bro for informing me of this device’s existence. :)

Let me tell you, folks, that close to three hours of listening to this:

was well-worth the price of admission.

Follow me down and I’ll tell you about the evening…
