KITTEN!

Hi, people that have friended me recently! I am not usually this absent from the internet. It's just that recently, I've been taking some time off for other things. Things like...

KITTENS.



Well, one kitten. ) Me and my sister drove out into country today to get her, which was interesting, because apparently there are places in the world that look even more serial killer-y than Adelaide. Seriously, the whole trip was exactly like the start of one of those redneck horror movies. I feel bad saying this, because the people did end up selling us a kitten at a fair price and everything, so I won't go into details. But I'm just saying, it's lucky we didn't bring our boyfriends with us, because inevitably they both would have died gruesomely before we got back to the car. And then one of us would have had to die.

Luckily, my sister's better looking than me. Usually the the slightly plainer female gets to be the final girl, that's all I'm saying.

Anyway, I am trying to think of names. I'm tossing up between:

- Something really obscure and pretentious, possibly involving Scandinavian mythology or Tolkien villians

- Something from Battlestar Galactica, or

- 'Princess Sparkles'


Any suggestions?

KITTEN!

It's a good thing all the regular television shows are starting up again, since I was running out of old stuff to watch. I tried Jericho recently, but I couldn't make to the end of season one: by two thirds of the way through I was just skipping to the bits featuring either Richard Speight Jr. or the romance between the IRS chick and the corn farmer dude.

Seriously, that was the cutest romance since season one of BSG. Why aren't there more TV romances set in post-apocalyptic wastelands? I don't like romance novels (and yes, I have read them: people leave them around in youth hostels) but if there was/is a romance novel subgenre dedicated to unlikely people falling in love during nuclear/zombie/cylon/Götterdämmerung/whatever apocalypses, I would so read it. Hm, this may be a possible marketing niche!

Anyway, I like this picture I took the other day, because you can see the exact spot where they shot the hippie:



Yes, hippie. Somebody 'stopped.'

Speaking of hippies, I was clothes shopping the other day and saw women's underwear with the following message written across the front:

STOP DESTROYING THE PLANET.

(I didn't take a picture. Because taking picture of women's underwear is weird, even if it's in a store.) Anyway, I don't get it. I mean, were the makers thinking 'Hey, let's put that on underwear! Because nothing gets a person in the mood quicker than being personally accused of destroying the habitation of seven billion people!'

Or I don't know, maybe it's some sort of metaphor. Kids these days.

Oh, and also, kids? If you're going to have someone over as an English tutor for two hours, please don't let your brother watch 300 really loud in the next room for the entirety of the lesson. Especially when said tutor has been wanting to watch it for weeks but accidentally deleted it off her computer. It's just impolite.

[Error: unknown template qotd]

1. Create the skeletal remains of several gigantic, horror-inducing cephalopods and bury them under soon-to-be-construction sites around the world. Just to fuck with people.

2. Appear to Richard Dawkins in a vision. Tell him to wear more hats.

3. Create entire planet of small kittens wearing costumes. Then push it into black hole, before reanimating the kittens and being like 'just kidding'. Possibly film event and show to Richard Dawkins.

My back has been killing me for a few days now. And I'm hungry, like, all the time.

What's up with that? Do you think I could have spontaneously conceived while viewing the Watchmen trailer?



Note: I like this picture!

While looking through the hundreds of pictures inside my phone in order to find a suitable pic of myself to submit for Zombie Squad membership, I found some Australian wildlife.

Steve Irwin eat your fucking heart out. )

Dear Supernatural writers,

Please stop killing off Ben Edlund's characters. Thanks.

love,
seph


Dear Ben Edlund,

What's your position on groupies? I mean, technically it's against my religion to be a groupie outside of marriage. But I've written a formal letter to the pope about making an exception, tentatively titled "Come On, It's The Guy That Wrote The Tick." I expect to receive his assent shortly.

lots of love,
seph


Dear 'Extraordinary Ministers of Communion' or whatever they call you these days,

Look, I appreciate what you're doing, I really do. But if you're going to react in shocked fear and anxiety whenever someone wants to receive communion on the tongue, maybe you shouldn't be administering communion. Also, please try not to shove your fingers in my mouth, I don't know where they've been.

Thanks!
seph


Dear LJ,

Am I really the only active user interested in 'grave desecration'? How the hell am I meant to make friends this way?

yours in disappointment,
seph


Dear Pope,

Did I mention that Ben Edlund also wrote the Puppet Angel episode? And that Firefly one where everyone sings a song about Jayne? C'mon.

keep up the good work,
seph

P.S. THE TICK!!!
