Two words:


River and the doctor are my official OTP.

I mean, look at them!!

I can't figure out what I think of this episode other than OMFG and FANFICTION so we just get gifs.


This whole weekend has been a lazy one. I did the grand total of very little yesterday. Actually, slept in (admittedly only to six-thirty but beggars can't be choosers), went out for breakfast with F.S, walked along the esplanade, drove up to a little cinema that still has canvas seats and saw 'Red Dog', drove back down, saw my grandparents and then went out for dinner.

Altogether - a lovely day.

But, F.S is at work today so I've got the flat to myself until at least five o'clock.

Shouldn't be ecstatic about that. Kinda am a bit. lol. I do love F.S but it's lovely having time to yourself.

My enormous, ridiculous essay for my management diploma is finished (finally) so that's a huge relief and I suppose I do the readings for the next section but that is so horrendously boring and the PO has been slow enough that I've been able to get ten minutes of reading done here and there while behind the counter.

Of course, this week will no doubt be flat out now I've written that. lol.

I need a poem or a song or something for my latest fic.

The Good Wife, main character Alicia as she unravels, builds herself up, bla bla bla.

I have all of these sections that I am happy with but there needs to be something that joins them all together.


Shall now go and hit my head against a desk...

An Unexpected Alliance
book 5; Minerva McGonagall, Remus Lupin
Minerva McGonagall, the Weasley twins, Peeves, and a common hatred of Dolores Umbridge? Things do not bode well for Hogwarts' High Inquisitor

Okay, so I love memes and novindalf currently has the great icon meme.

- Reply to this post with ICON ME! and I will pick five of your icons
- Make a post (including this info) and talk about the five icons I chose
- Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts
- This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee

She chose:

The Ros-in-Red icon!  I made this on a whim because I have a thing for red dresses and Ros is ... well, Ros so putting the two together just seemed like the thing to do. 

Lawrence Olivier and Maggie Smith behind the scenes of Othello.  The reasons:  one, its Maggie Smith.  Two, its Maggie Smith... lol. 

The 'slap scene' from the pilot of The Good Wife.  He cheats on her, is the cause of her public humilation, and then has the gall to ask 'you okay?'  And she slaps him!  Which made me very happy.  It's also the beginning of Alicia 'breaking free' of the constraints she's put on herself.  And I like the idea of women breaking free of those constraints. 

Calvin and Hobbes!  I love the comic strips.  I always have since I was a little kid.  I even have a framed pic of these two in my hallway.  lol.

Well, on the shallow side, I love sunglasses.  But I love the composition of this icon.  It is brilliantly done and works incredibly well.


Comment to this entry and I'll give you a letter. List ten things that you love that begin with that letter and then post that list on your journal.

novindalf 8 gave me the letter S:

And this is surprisingly difficult.

- Shakespeare sonnets (yes, I am a nerd)
- Stereo speakers (the big ones that make music go BOOM!)
- Stone pavers
- Scarves
- Stonefruit
- Stars
- 'Set Fire to the Rain' by Adele
- Stagecoachs (yes, I'm serious)
- Shoes
- Sweaters (specifically, my big woolen sweater I wouldn't dream of wearing outside the house but which is toasty warm and snuggly.)

My reaction when I realised I was totally, utterly and completely hooked on the wonderful program that is Offspring.

Main character - Nina Proudman; neurotic, day-dreaming obstetrician. Played by the amazing Asher Kuddie. Has a fantastic wardrobe which I intend to somehow replicate (yeah - I like clothes - my wardrobe keeps expanding).

Also has a totally bonkers family. Always a plus.

Chris Havel - the amazingly sexy paedetrician with issues of his own.

And that's the FIRST season! Urgh! Three days of finding time to marathon afore-mentioned first season - and now Chris Havel is my ultimate crush.

SECOND season! No Chris Havel but Nina was still there, still neurotic, still hilarious.

In comes Patrick; very attractive anaethetist.

Patrick: "I killed a bear... then wrote a poem about how sad it made me."

Come on! Lines like that!

More issues, yada yada...

I just get comfortable and in walks Chris!

Why, show, WHY?

Making me pick between... I can't even think it.

Patti Nyholm - the original Will/Alicia shipper. 

Season 1: episode 5

“Oh, Mr Merrymen's is upstairs.”
“Yes, I thought I'd sit in on this one today. Get to know you better.”
“Great. Please.”
“Actually, chairs aren't really my friends these days. I'll think I'll just stand.”
“So, you're Will's 'new one.'”
“Yes, I'm his new Junior Associate.”

“Yeah. That's what I meant. The way he looks at you, that's what I meant. I guess he finds you a challenge. Too many blonde gigglers running around. Why not go for someone more substantial? Someone with an interesting history?”
“Mrs Nyholm. I know how this works. We're going to try and get into each other's heads. Try to unnerve each other? Can I give you a piece of advice? After the past seven months, I'm vaccinated.”
“Fair enough. Let's get started.”


Season 1: episode 17

"You two make a cute couple."


Season 2: episode 21

“Hello. Phone your boyfriend. Tell him I need to ask him something.”
“My boyfriend?”
“Will Gardner. Tell him I want to see him in thirty minutes or I'm onto the next.”


I love Patti Nyholm. She's so calculating and absolutely hilarious.  And that "you two make a cute couple" - way to make two people uncomfortable.  lol

This is belated seeing as I watched The Good Wife finale on Wednesday but I - person who has the ability to just not shut up for several hours - have no words to describe it.

... you have an idea for a fanfiction piece but are well aware that next week's episode might ruin it and you also know that you won't be able to finish it before the episode airs.


Also, should start a 'reasons to love *insert character name*' meme thing. With pictures and gifs...
