sad but true. Elementary does lit everything better except episode length. I’m always looking forward to the next ep of Elementary, I’m mildly apprehensive for the Sherlock-splosion that is gonna hit Tumblr soon :/
I really should try Elementary again, I found the pilot a bit dry for my tastes but I’ve heard it’s good.
I’ll probably watch the new Sherlock anyway but I just miss being excited about it…
In other news, went to carols at the Sheldonian last night. There is a Gorgon on the ceiling that I hadn’t noticed before, which was pretty cool. Also pleased to note that they still have the same 6 carols and the same solo piece they have had for the last 5 years. Sadly lacking in the guy with the orgasmically gorgeous bass voice who used to sing O Holy Night. You know, that guy whom I described to my God-bothering housemate from two years ago (who has incidentally gone into the God-bothering business, which from what he was telling me on Sunday seems to be distressingly like teaching) as “that guy with the orgasmic voice” and it then turned out was a friend of said housemate and came round for tea later that week. Man, 3rd year was great.
I always find religious services fascinating, speaking as an apatheist agnostic with an interest in folklore. The speaker last night was talking about feeling a hole inside and claiming that this meant there must be something “bigger” that would fill it. While I, standing on the outside looking in, thought it seemed fairly self-evident that everyone feels like that and that perhaps part of the reason organised religion developed was society’s attempts to plug that hole.
I’ll never understand people who don’t drink alcohol
Maybe they know what alcohol can do to people, maybe they fear liver failure, maybe they had a family member or friend that died from an alcohol related accident, maybe they don’t feel the need or desire to drink, it’s really not that hard to comprehend
I’ll never understand people who DO drink alcohol. It only tastes nice if you learn to drink it, so why bothering to learn to drink something that hurts you? I have a terrible fear of losing control over my mind, so the one time I was stoned was extremely scary and I can never understand people that like getting drunk. Seriously, you guys are really fucking scary when you’re drunk. Also, I can’t drink because of my medication, but I never say that, because then people just go ‘Awww, ok!’ and I want them to know that I just really hate alcohol. I can have loads of fun without it and remembering it the next morning and while not throwing up in a toilet. Thanks.
Sorry, but I really feel.. kind of attacked by your comment? I mean, I regularly drink alcohol and I totally get where you’re coming from and why you don’t want to drink alcohol. Still, that shouldn’t give you the right to go and generalize all us alchohol drinkers. I know plenty of people who are hardly scary when they’ve had a drink (including me) and maybe I like the taste, maybe I just like to have a glass of wine during a sunny day because it feels good and makes me feel relaxed. Maybe I like a few drinks when i’m going out because yes it makes me feel more confident to talk to people and less restricted. That doesn’t make me scary and it doesn’t make you any better/any less whether you drink alchohol or not.
I wouldn’t normally get involved but I’d like to elaborate on the “scary” front. Background: I don’t drink, and haven’t since I was fourteen. At that time it was a moral choice; now it’s just habit.
Last year, one of my housemates came back from a party completely gazebo’d. She did have friends with her who were able to look after her, so that was fine. But it was scary as all heck because that was my first experience of being around someone who was really really drunk and she was just so… weird and wobbly and loud and generally not-right and it was extremely unnerving to be around.
I think the person you’re replying to is on a bit of a high horse about it, but I can relate because I sat on that same horse for most of my teen years. I’m a bit more mature about it now, but I still prefer not to be around people who are drinking in any quantity because it really freaks me out.
Do they make you take any psychology tests or anything like that when you want to become a teacher in Britain?
We (by which I mean England, other constituent countries of the British Isles may differ) have CRB (criminal records) checks and take skills tests in numeracy and literacy before starting our courses, but no psychological tests. Is that a thing in other countries?
Hello to all of you joining me because I knitted a voice actor a sweatervest. The most common questions:
1. Can I pay you to knit me one?
No. Remember that thing about not selling NV merch? Still applies. Also I’ve done two of the damn things now and I’m just about over it.
2. Do you have a pattern/chart?
Yes, the pattern I used is Peter (Easy) by Berroco and you can find it for free on Ravelry. The design is two-colour intarsia with the white added in duplicate stitch and can be found on my knitting blog. You can, of course, put the design on any item of knitwear that takes your fancy, although you will need to resize it.
My original jumper (and Cecil’s slightly larger copy) was knitted in aran-weight but the design should work in anything down to DK, I should think. More progress shots can be found on my knitting blog.
3. How did you get it to him?
A nice lady on the Ravelry group knows him in person; I sent it to her and she passed it on.
Having rewatched the first half of the Hobbit, I think the thing that is confusing me the most is not only that I always imagined Lindir to be blond but also that he looks exactly like I always imagined Erestor looking.
The part of me that is still 14 and reading Imladris fic is all mixed up.
