I broke my tooth on some Turkish Delight.

... All right, to be absolutely accurate, I broke my tooth on an almond in the TD.
Didn't hurt, just another bit chipped off an already damaged/de-fillinged tooth.


[happy dance] I haz the Dr Horrible soundtrack!
Doesn't make a lot of sense without the visuals but the Cubs love the Bad Horse Chorus.

Bad Horse, Bad Horse
Bad Horse, Bad Horse
He rides across the nation, the thoroughbred of sin
He got the application that you just sent in
It needs evaluation, so let the games begin
A heinous crime, a show of force
(a murder would be nice of course)

Bad Horse, Bad Horse
Bad Horse, he’s bad
The evil league of evil is watching so beware
The grade that you receive’ll be your last, we swear
So make the bad horse gleeful, or he’ll make you his mare
You’re saddled up; there’s no recourse
It’s “hi-yo, silver!”
Signed: Bad Horse.

(Music by Jed Whedon and Joss Whedon
Lyrics by Joss Whedon)

Itunes now has the show available to d/l but as I don't have a DVD burner there's not much point getting it. I'll just hang around waiting for the store release.

I've got a craving, a twitchy, skin tingly hunger that's making me restless. I know this feeling. Ooh dear, it's obsession.
Sure the show's flawed - plot holes, melodrama and bwuh...? moments abound - but damn, I don't care. More. More.
I really hope there's some good fanfic out there or I'm going to explode. (Joules has already supplied me with a site to browse but I'm holding off until I've finished season 2... and some homework. Curse this streak of responsibility!)

Earlier, in the kitchen.

Me, to Badger, regarding blemishes: Hey, let me squeeze your nose!
Badger: Nooo!
Me, advancing predatorily: Yeees!
Badger, pointing at the kitchen window: Look! A cat distraction!
Me, turning to watch KittenKong pick her way over the sink: Eh?
Badger, running away cackling: Flee! Leg it!
Me: [pause, laughing] Just cos I fell for that doesn't make you clever!

Ah, it's a fun household... : )

(Well, damn, it looks like the draft versions of posts aren't saved indefinitely. Pooh. Eh well, let's see if I can remember what I'd noted...)

I've read about 50 books so far this year.

Schools holidays were fun. As well as Wall-E and Clone Wars the Cubs and I saw Mummy 3. Mr Fraser has certainly matured nicely but the film itself was disappointing. Cubs loved it though.

Last weekend of the hols Soulsis, Niki and I road-tripped (road trip! road trip!) down to Port Fairy. Took us 6 and a half hours to get there but only 4 hours to get back. That was probly cos we came a different, very boring, way home. Nothing to see, no point stopping anywhere except for 20 mins for lunch. Unlike the trip down... 20 minute stop just outside of Geelong for coffee, to fortify us for the gruelling journey through that godsforsaken bottleneck town; 40 minutes in Winchelsea for lunch (smoked trout! Fish caught by Soulsis' chicks, hot smoked by Niki!); then an hour in Camperdown trawling the excellent op shop and bakery.
N, S and I (commonly referred to as The Faeries) shared a cabin in a caravan park. Pete and Alarice were also onsite, along with Waz and Matt. Sam and Al stayed in a B&B a little distance away as they couldn't bring their dogs into the park.
Port Fairy's a lovely little place. We walked a lot, ate well (very well), and socialised. 'twas a lovely, relaxing weekend - and Alarice introduced me to Dr Horrible's sing-a-long blog!. Joss Whedon = fecking jenius : ) (at the link, read the Master Plan, and the Captain Hammer comic!)
Aaargh! Wantswantswants! Eagerly, eagerly waiting for the DVD - the 3 part series was only released for a few day's on Whedon's site, as an experiment - and in the meantime I'm going to buy the soundtrack through itunes. [happy bounce]

Egad, I've got so much homework to do. Erk.

It's the Meccano Club's Annual Exhibition tomorrow. Might let the cubs' father take them to that. I have far too much homework to do! Mwhahah...

(Oh, I ate something evil during the weekend away. From the Time & Tide Gallery Cafe, called a Meringue Stack. Big blob of icecream sandwiched between two big meringues, with cream and raspberry sauce. [drooool] Sugar coma on a plate! Pics when I finally get them off my camera...

... I'll witter about Torchwood later. I'm sure that'll be thrilling. : )
