Congratulazioni agli italiani....

...Désolé à mes amis français.

Yesterday afternoon I went into the deli downstairs from our apartment and I promise you, you could have loaded up a shopping cart and strolled right through the front door any number of times. *g* They were glued to the security TVs. Which were not showing the store, I promise you.

I can't believe this sport gets decided on penalty kicks. And sorry about the icon, but hey, football is football, right?

Yay OMG Kermit

Wow! An anonymous friend sent me a box of virtual chocolates!

The very best kind. All the sweetness, none of the calories. *g* Thank you so much, whoever you are!

In other news...Sleep! Shopping! Cinema!Collapse )

FIC: Because I have nothing else to do...

...I thought I'd post something out of my ordinary vein.

This is not X-Men. This is Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I have really no idea if anyone here is into that, but I wrote this a long time ago and it still rather amuses me. And I miss Douglas Adams.

I thought about updating this in view of the recent movie, but I decided it was a period piece so I left it as it was. This is based on the characters as I knew them from the radio series (and the old BBC TV series, though I liked that less), and of course the books that followed. (Oh yes, that was the order.)

It will probably be obvious from context, but at the end I've given a relevant cast list in case anyone is confused. *g* And if you never read or saw the thing, you will probably not really get this, so don't worry, I won't feel bad if you skip it.

Well Fuck Sir

Okay, is it just me?

Or has LJ gone nuts?

This is twice I've gone to look at my LJ, which I might add means clicking on a bookmark on my bookmarks bar, and I've been taken to someone else's LJ entirely. No one I know, either. Not even anything interesting.




It's devildoll's birthday?


*throws confetti*

Happy Birthday, DD!

Till Human Voices Wake Us--Logan

We're just waitin' for it to come around on the guitar...

....all right, jengrrrl, I said I'd do it, and you *almost* convinced me with that gorgeous piece you posted to do it without the cut, but....

Couldn't do that to people. Here's the mission, should you choose to accept it:

Please post a protest song or ANYTHING THAT MEANS NO MORE WAR to you in your own LJ. I'd like to see this grow, for people to see the words that inspired a generation to rebel against the forces in their government that war-mongered and caused the deaths of so many.

So here it is, folks...the ultimate No More War Song:

Absolutely unbelievable....

...finished Renal/Endocrine.


One block to go and then it's on to the wards. Do you people understand that I'm going to be a *doctor* in two more years?

This is totally nuts.

I'm inventing the jengrrrl Anti-Massacree Meme, because seeing her post the full lyrics to "Masters of War" has inspired me. Such a great song.

When you see this, quote either Bob Dylan, or anything else that means NO MORE WARS to you. (I was gonna do "Alice's Restaurant", but I figured no one would get through the whole thing. :-/)

It is time for this bullshit to stop. I'm so tired of this. How did we learn nothing from Viet Nam? Or since? How is it that since Watergate we still believe politicians have the nation's best interests at heart? It makes me sick and sad to think about how much more I should be doing, but maybe continuing the thread is some small effort.

I give you Phil Ochs, a great young folk singer who unfortunately killed himself at an all-too-early age. This is one of my favorites of his songs.

I Ain't Marchin' Any More

Oh, I marched to the battle of New Orleans
At the end of the early British war
The young land started growing
The young blood started flowing
But I ain't marchin' anymore

For I've killed my share of Indians
In a thousand different fights
I was there at the Little Big Horn
I heard many men lying
I saw many more dying
But I ain't marchin' anymore

It's always the old to lead us to the war
It's always the young to fall
Now look at all we've won with the sabre and the gun
Tell me is it worth it all

For I stole California from the Mexican land
Fought in the bloody Civil War
Yes I even killed my brother
And so many others
And I ain't marchin' anymore

For I marched to the battles of the German trench
In a war that was bound to end all wars
Oh I must have killed a million men
And now they want me back again
But I ain't marchin' anymore

For I flew the final mission in the Japanese sky
Set off the mighty mushroom roar
When I saw the cities burning
I knew that I was learning
That I ain't marchin' anymore

Now the labor leader's screamin' when they close the missile plants,
United Fruit screams at the Cuban shore,
Call it Peace or call it Treason,
Call it Love" or call it Reason,
But I ain't marchin' any more.

-Phil Ochs, December 19, 1940- April 9, 1976

Death Kiss


Judgement Day, indeed.

The creators of this show are bound for the special hell for leaving us hanging like this.


And no one better post to complain I'm mixing my fandom metaphors.

On a lighter note, I love how they felt the need to indicate the passage of time by making everyone grow their hair longer.
