Patrick Doyle Concert part II Oct. 30th, 2007 @ 08:35 pm
I know you all went crazy with anticipation, so I´ll save my ramblings to one of the next parts of my posts (probably tomorrow), although grigorisgirl did an outstanding job already. And please take a look at hikity_2001 (that´s if you´re friends with her) for some nice pictures.

For now, enjoy Alan´s introduction for My Father´s Favourite from Sense & Sensibility as I know you all have been waiting for that.

Thanks a bunch to catsplay for helping me out working on the Goodies! I love you! Screencaps are available (within reasonable time) at her LJ.

Patrick Doyle Concert part I Oct. 29th, 2007 @ 10:55 am
Hi All,

Just a quick post from the hotel to share that we attended the Concert last evening. It was such an amazing experience. Actors who performed or introduced something were: Alan Rickman, Robbie Coltrane, Sr. Derek Jacobi, Emma Thompson, Greg Wise, Kenneth Branagh, Dame Judi Dench, Imelda Staunton, Patrick Doyle and his daughters and some others.

I will make time to have a full report when I'm home. I have some lovely vids which I will share with you but you have to be patient (sorry about that).

I met a bunch of Alan fans yesterday and we've had a drink with a couple of them afterwards. Thanks to all for a memorable evening. It was worth every penny.

Hugs Peek

MUM - JOB DESCRIPTION


This is hysterical. If it had been presented this way, no one would have done it!!!!




POSITION:

Mother, Mum, Mama, Mummy, Ma.

JOB DESCRIPTION:

Long term, team players needed, for challenging permanent work in an, often chaotic environment. Candidates must possess excellent communication and organizational skills and be willing to work variable hours, which will include evenings and weekends and frequent 24 hour shifts on call. Some overnight travel required, including trips to primitive camping sites on rainy weekends and endless sports tournaments in far away cities. Travel expenses not reimbursed. Extensive courier duties also required.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

The rest of your life. Must be willing to be hated, at least temporarily, until someone needs £5.Must be willing to bite tongue repeatedly. Also, must possess the physical stamina of a pack mule and be able to go from zero to 60 mph in three seconds flat in case, this time, the screams from the backyard are not someone just crying wolf. Must be willing to face stimulating technical challenges, such as small gadget repair, mysteriously sluggish toilets and stuck zippers. Must screen phone calls, maintain calendars and co-ordinate production of multiple homework projects. Must have ability to plan and organize social gatherings for clients of all ages and mental outlooks. Must be willing to be indispensable one minute, an embarrassment the next. Must handle assembly and product safety testing of a half million cheap, plastic toys, and battery operated devices.. Must always hope for the best but be prepared for the worst. Must assume final, complete accountability for the quality of the end product. Responsibilities also include floor maintenance and janitorial work throughout the facility.

POSSIBILITY FOR ADVANCEMENT & PROMOTION:

Virtually none. Your job is to remain in the same position for years, without complaining, constantly retraining and updating your skills, so that those in your charge can ultimately surpass you.

PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE:

None required unfortunately. On-the-job training offered on a continually exhausting basis.

WAGES AND COMPENSATION:

Get this! You pay them! Offering frequent raises and bonuses. A balloon payment is due when they turn 18 because of the assumption that college will help them become financially independent. When you die, you give them whatever is left. The oddest thing about this reverse-salary scheme is that you actually enjoy it and wish you could only do more.

BENEFITS:

While no health or dental insurance, no pension, no tuition reimbursement, no paid holidays and no stock options are offered; this job supplies limitless opportunities for personal growth and free hugs for life.

Forward this on to all the Mums you know, in appreciation for everything they do on a daily basis, and let them know they are.

this guy is amazing Oct. 15th, 2007 @ 03:57 pm
Since a couple of months I am looking at the works of the amazing artist Julian Beever. Not only does he make astonishing pavement drawings but also oil paintings and wall murals.

Look what he has done in Edinbourgh for Live8 (Make Poverty History).

Sheena from NY posted this link over at ARDLHGB. It´s the speech by the Head Boy and Head Girl on September 27th. I´m impressed by their way with words and their wit.

When I saw this for the very first time I had to laugh... immediately followed by saying "how sad." I couldn´t help laughing though I felt guilty doing that. Anyone else who feels the same?

These are very mean questions! What did you answer to this question?

If you could only pick ONE of the following items in the next six groups, which would it be? (i.e. by picking the ONE, you can no longer have/possess the others, EVER)

Group 3...
Internet
Sex


These are the first necessities of life and they let you choose. *duh*
On the other hand, questions like these;

Do you have any books by Carl Sagan in your bookshelf?
Bookshelf!? Bahahaa, you make me laugh!

I have many.
I have, and have read, them all!

You know he smoked pot, right?
Er, huh?

Do you care that your socks have holes in them?
Let me check...
Yes, it is really annoying to have holey socks!
Like I have time to care!
