I appear to have Carry on wayward son by Kansas going through my head at the moment.
Not complaining, just an observation. :o)
Right, I'm off Shrove hunting.
Doubt I'll have any joy, on past experience they're as hard to catch as real live Haggis. But I'm determined that one year I will be successful in my quest.
In 2011, I am...living in Hemel Hempstead with my lovely wife, Sarah, and working in Milton Keynes.
In 2001, I was...living in Chelmsford with Tim, having left university and London a couple of years before, and working in admin at the local hospital.
In 1991, I was...living in Chelmsford with my mum, stepdad, and sister, and working at my stepdad's company in London.
In 1981, I was...living in Chelmsford with my mum, stepdad, and sister, and going to Meadgate school in Chelmsford.
In 1971, I was...living in Chadwell Heath with my mum, I think, my dad having left us a few months before. I was too young to remember anything from that period of my life, but I know that the UK currency went decimal in February of that year. Do I get bonus points for knowing that?
In 1961, I was...nonexistent.
I was confuseded. Because 24 Hour Panel People was on over the weekend just gone, I foolishly assumed that Comic Relief was on this Friday and was puzzled that I couldn't find it, or the Only Connect Comic Relief special, listed on the Sky+ programme guide. But now I see from the Radio Times that arrived this morning that it is in fact on next week. So that's okay.
Although isn't there a cover feature about Comic Relief in this week's Radio Times? That probably doesn't aid my state of confusion. Seriously! I am Very Easy to confuse - you don't have to try anywhere near that hard!
The context isn't terribly important, although it will probably form another post entirely, but...over the weekend, Sarah and I and a friend were discussing firearms. Specifically American 19th century firearms. And every time the name "Winchester" was mentioned, the fannish part of my brain went "wibble".
I now desperately would love to see an animated .gif userpic with a picture of Dean and the caption "Knows how to use a Colt," followed by a picture of Castiel and the caption "Knows how to use a Winchester."
I may well end up downloading GIMPShop for my laptop to do it myself (it really is high time), but if anybody fancies being generous..?
This is a fabulously funny song and video - musically it's not great, but hey, I'm not complaining. And it's just been twittered by Morena Baccarin, so watch the views go stratospheric.
Contains a spoiler for Serenity the movie. If you've not seen that and are likely to want to.
