Pretty accurate...
you are darkslategray

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is lower than average - You don't stress out over things and don't understand people who do. Finishing projects may sometimes be a challenge, but you schedule time as you see fit and the important things all happen in the end, even if not everyone sees your grand master plan.

Your outlook on life is dark. You're generally a pessimist and everyone knows it; you're the one the come to when they don't want the sunshine blown around, they just want to straight truth. You can miss good things in life if you make up your mind too early though.

Cookie the Christmas Elf
Went to the Christmas Parade today and there were dogs all dressed up. Naturally, Cookie was the most handsome!

Writer's Block: Bite Me
From Dr. Polidori's Lord Ruthven to Stephenie Meyer's Edward Cullen, the annals of vampire lore are filled with attractive, charming bloodsuckers. Which one would you most want to be bitten by?

Spike. Mmmm, Spike. Not even necessarily Good Spike.

Erm, does anyone know how much it costs to run a website and how many hits you need to be financially viable? A website I work on exists, but is being dumped by its server.

Greatest. Website. Ever.
Because real life idiots will always be funnier than anything comedians or satirists can come up with.


spEak You’re bRanes
A collection of ignorance, narcissism, stupidity, hypocrisy and bad grammar.
All the comments quoted were found on the BBC "Have Your Say" site. Yes, people really have written them. On purpose as far as I can tell.

There so needs to be an American version!

Move over Colbert, this is the greatest remix
Obviously, NSFW. The top and tail is because the BBC Breakfast programme aired what was meant to be a snippet of the bleeped out rant, but forgot the bleeps!

Actual snow in London! With proper trudging through it and causing the travel system to grind to a halt! Unfortunately, this means my planned birthday trip to see a burlesque show tonight has been cancelled, because we can't get in or out of London. :( On the plus side, snow! And a puppy who very much enjoyed the new-look park.

My bloody stairs have bloody collapsed! Well not entirely, but they are hanging by a thread! My brother was walking down the stairs this morning and heard a crack. We thought one floorboard might've cracked a bit. Upon closer inspection, the entire staircase is coming away from the wall! A few stairs are totally out of their hinges, another couple are barely hanging in. We called the home insurance company and they had all sorts of trouble finding someone who could do it, as they need a builder and a joiner, so probably first thing in the morning. Even the builder said it was something they'd never dealt with before. Bloody mad! We're trying to avoid the stairs as much as possible and if going up or down, doing so extremely gingerly. Gah!

Congratulations America!
For once you didn't screw this up. Now stay that way, ya hear?

I tried staying up for the results, really I did, but nodded off at some point with CNN on the telly. I missed the actual call that Obama had won, but at least randomly woke up in time to see his actual speech. I flipped over occasionally to Fox News and was amused they seemed to be entirely ignoring the Presidential race and focusing instead on the local races, as if they had already given up on McCain before the evening began.

Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...

Balanced, Secure, and Realistic.

20 Impressionist, -3 Islamic, -1 Ukiyo-e, -24 Cubist, -14 Abstract and 0 Renaissance!

Impressionism is a movement in French painting, sometimes called optical realism because of its almost scientific interest in the actual visual experience and effect of light and movement on appearance of objects. Impressionist paintings are balanced, use colored shadows, use pure color, broken brushstrokes, thick paint, and scenes from everyday life or nature.

People that like Impressionist paintings may not alway be what is deemed socially acceptable. They tend to move on their own path without always worrying that it may be offensive to others. They value friendships but because they also value honesty tend to have a few really good friends. They do not, however, like people that are rude and do not appreciate the ideas of others. They are secure enough in themselves that they can listen to the ideas of other people without it affecting their own final decisions. The world for them is not black and white but more in shades of grey and muted colors. They like things to be aestically pleasing, not stark and sharp. There are many ways to view things, and the impresssionist personality views the world from many different aspects. They enjoy life and try to keep a realistic viewpoint of things, but are not very open to new experiences. If they are content in their live they will be more than likely pleased to keep things just the way they are.

Do not screw this up, America!
Admittedly, you did a great job with The Office, but this is a whole other kettle of fish. Don't you dare trample all over the genius that is Peep Show.

Halloween Squeeville
Attention all those who can get to London on Halloween! Jeremy Dyson of The League of Gentlemen presents a Halloween all-nighter at the Curzon, Soho, which includes the League Christmas Special, a live performance of Voodoo Lady by Creme Brulee, screenings of I Walked With a Zombie, Night of the Eagle, The Believers and Scream Blacula Scream plus face-painting, DJ and "spooky reading." The films kick off at 11.30pm and it all ends with breakfast included in the £30 ticket at 7am. Yes, I shall be having breakfast with Jeremy Dyson. No sex first, but a girl can't have everything.

I cannot express how wonderful this sounds. I got my tickets, they don't appear to be on the website yet, so call 0871 7033 988 and ask for the Halloween all-nighter. I shall also scan the fabulous flyer in due course.

In conclusion, SQUEE!

Chica, who will Goth up for the occasion

Oh, G&B, I do love thee
I hate me. But Green & Black's hot chocolate with amaretto syrup takes the edge off. It's like alcohol, only without the hangover.

Chica, morose

The Bugle challenge - a sonnet for Obama-Biden
Don't know how many of you listen to it, but The Bugle is the podcast by John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman. They made a challenge this week for people to write sonnets because someone realised 'Obama-Biden' is half a line of iambic pentameter. Naturally, I got out my quill. Suggestions on how to improve are greatly appreciated.

I did two versions, both end with the same joke, cos I can't let go that a place is called the Mile High City.

Obama-Biden were the names that shone
As coloured sparks lit up the Denver sky
Barack told us that all despair is gone
The world let out a great collective sigh

A million songs and speakers warmed the crowd
Would he perchance say ‘hope’ within his speech?
The buzzwords flowed like wine, clichés unbowed
And so around the doubters he did reach

Should John give up the snark, now there’s the rub
Get drunk on hope and join the Mile High Club!


Obama-Biden buttons pinned to breast
The Democrats prepared for their new reign
It was just like a ‘Change’ Oktoberfest
Hangover’s in November, yet again

John thought he’d be immune from cunning ploy
Barack’s Absinthe of hope went to his head
Drunk on propitious words and odes to joy
The skin of British snark then he did shed

The correspondent went to pillory
But joined the Mile High Club with Hillary

Farewell New York, I hardly knew ye
It's official, I'm not going to NYC this year. I had intended to go for Halloween and the election, but it turns out a series of total disasters in planning have led me to conclude this just ain't gonna happen. Plus it is rather my fault, as during my mother's second (maybe third, can't remember) heart attack, I pledged to not go to New York this year if God so wished. He/She is sending me some none too subtle hints. Ah well, I'll just save up and maybe get a R1 Bluray player instead. :(

Cookie encounters a hedgehog
He'd never seen one before, so was a little unsure what to do.

Couple of stories to amuse both sides of the ocean.

First, better late than never: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7517730.stm

And second, how accurate is this? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/7509572.stm

Dick Van Dyke, you'll never live that down.
