“Poor old 1861 just going. It has been a gloomy year of trouble and disaster. I should be glad of its departure were it not that 1862 is likely to be no better.” —George Templeton Strong

In random news, I appear to be 28. Quite tired today. Kind of figured that bit started at a slightly more advanced age, but then, I’ve always been a tad broken. Anyway, let’s quote some bear emails, in which Sarah is funny. From: Erik Subject: Now With 100% More Bears Date: Thu, 11 Dec 2008 01:42:36 To: Sarah http://www.thingsbearslove.com/ The boomboxes one is made of pure genius and win.

In which I’m going to ramble a bit about blog design issues, because I’m in that mood right now. Issues with current MT install (3.34) 1.

For our special end of Season 2 episode of exploring certain bad costuming decisions on the part of the Highlander crew. Because, while on the whole this show is filled with epic levels of awesome, and Duncan MacLeod runs around generally looking like the awesomest man on the planet (ask my girlfriend if you doubt this), some days, his dress sense is…off. Wifebeater Mac drinks beer, then beats his wife. On his apparent crack barge. Some days, the period flashbacks involve awesome costuming, such as this one of Amanda and Rebecca, which made my girlfriend swoon. Other days, not so much. Here is Romance Novel Mac, dressed in his Romance Novel Scotsman garb. With a headband. It would be easy […]
