Interesting tit-bits


Praps I should have named that a bit different. Someone’s going to make jokes.

Still not seen ‘Doctor bloody Who’ from last weekend, but I’m getting to it. More soon on how I’m now online too - the truth may just shock you. Let’s start with a quick recap of shite as I’ve neglected to mention recently (although I’m completely willing to blame this on the lack on Tinternet, caused by my ISP).

Rumours, gossip and generally totally unsubstantiated bollocks about Led Zeppelin doing a few tour dates - which you just know are never going to be anywhere near me. I could never be that lucky. Jason Bonham all ready to go, is he? Hmm... Think I mentioned this in of my Supernatural’ fan-fics, genius that I am. Dunt change the facts that (1), they ain’t going to do it, and (2) even if they did, they wouldn’t be doing it anywhere near Hong Kong.

The really shocking news is that I have a hot date next week - and he knows exactly how to make me smile. He was quite up-front about it, no bashful bollocks like so many men have done. He was really quite matter-of-fact about it. I found it refreshing. He said we could go for a stroll round Tai Koo Shing and the various shops in City Plaza, before going back to his place to watch DVDs and eat junk food - and maybe play with his computer too. How fab is that? Sounds like a perfect evening for me. There’s just one problem. The gentleman in question is four years old. The shops he’d like to look at are model and toy shops (no problem there, then) and then back to his place to watch Thomas the Tank Engine and Scooby Doo. Again, no problem there. I just can’t really see it going anywhere between us, that’s all. I mean, I’ve got twenty-seven years on him, and that’s an age gap I just can’t see us getting over. Ah well. I’ll have to let him down lightly - I don’t want to upset him. I’ll have to be subtle. I can be subtle.

We saw ‘Sex And The City’ week before last, cos Monday were a public holiday. (It were the Dragon Boat Festival, or the Tuen Ng Festival Sunday, we got Monday in lieu.) So a group of about seven of us went on down to Admiralty and that new fancy cinema thing and we laffed our fucking arses off. Well, I did. I found it at times hilarious, at times serious and actually thought-provoking (what does that say about my life?), and really quite enjoyed it. I noticed most people in the cinema were foreigners too, which could have been why the laughter kinda reverberated more loudly than I thought it woulda done. It was good though. We liked.

And so to stuff as you can buy online:

T-shirts that are right up my street: Creationism type stuff. And they have references to ‘Ghostbusters’, Terry Pratchett’s Discworld, and so much more! Ok, so they don’t have stuff for The Flying Spaghetti Monster, but you can get that at His church anyway.

The best damned electronic book, sci-fi style, that is available at the moment: the Amazon Kindle. Is it available in the rest of the world yet? Who knows? Who cares? It’s cool and so very ‘Star Trek’, dahling.

And not for sale, but just as fun: Don’t know how to answer that pub quiz question? Stuck as to an answer to that ‘Do I? / Do I not?’ moment? Despair no more: if yer using an iPod Touch or similar iPhone type wi-fi accessing tool, then this is for you: the Magic i-8 Ball will answer you every time! Just remember, contrary to popular belief, you never actually shake an 8-Ball, you tilt it. And so it is with the online version too.

And news for all:


And I think that’s about it. A big peach and lube to everyone tonight, and I’ll post again very, very soon.

Hi! My name is Jenn and I found your blog while doing a search trying to figure out what Dean Winchester's ring is. I have now added you to my favorites and to my Blog Roll.

I have never met anyone who likes the same shows I do. (Supernatural, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Grey's Anatomy are ones we have in common.) In fact, everyone I know makes fun of me for liking these shows as much as I do. Oh well, their loss...

But when I followed your link to The Flying Spaghetti Monster, I had to send you a note in thanks. I nearly peed myself reading the Open Letter. It seems we share views on many things...

Thanks for making me fel not so alone in this world... *GRIN*

Hey, anyone who reads my blog and doesn't leave spam all over it is a friend of mine, LOL

I have a private theory about Dean's ring, which makes me laugh every time I see it happen in an episode = he only wears it to open beer bottles. I believe Tall Tales is an excellent example of this...

:)

Welcome to the funny farm! Thanks for the fave and blog roll add! We need more like us, LOL!
