<--check out Mr. Nigel Murray there. He is WISE, my friends, wise like a crazy owl. In fact, he totally knew the answers to the five things meme, as posed by insight2
.( Finn, Uriel, language, fleeces, and Moleskines! )
In fannish news: I wroted a drabble for the deancastiel
drabble fire challenge, Secretum secretorum (The Secret of Secrets)
, featuring Dean, Castiel, and the Impala ♥
Also, I will confess to watching a few episodes of Merlin
. So far, I am prepared to grant that Merlin is adorable (aside from the hair, oh my god
please change the hair), Gwen is lovely, and Arthur needs a swift kick in the pants. Also, it is not as boring as 99% of the Arthurian stuff I've been exposed to in my life... Probably this is a bad thing for a medievalist to admit, but most Arthurian literature puts me to sleep. The majority of the Morte Darthur
makes me catatonic, except for the part where Lancelot gropes the open, bleeding wounds of an injured knight. Heh heh heh, wound-groping.
In other news: To quote the BBC Pride and Prejudice, "Damn tedious waste of an evening!" I had to go out for drinks tonight, which is usually not bad, but this time it was because I didn't know anyone outside of two people, and all the people I didn't know happened to be Law and Business Students. We had nothing
to talk about and very little in common. ("So... you want to research medieval literature, huh?" "You're trying to get a job as an investment banker in this economy, huh?") So, I had a glass of wine, made one of the people I knew very sorry he had asked me to come, and left.
Also, all the cretins were out on the road tonight. WTF is up
with that? I arrived at the bar red-faced with shouting unheard threats, advice, and curses at the morons I encountered on the way.
