Nun of that!

"My last activity was in the Main ballroom, where I saw a chap in leather trousers being cheerfully whipped by a woman in a latex nun's habit.

It seemed fitting to end my Fantasm 2004 experience on that note. Not with a bang, but a wimple.

Last night I had a most marvellous dream involving Viggo Mortensen, a pair of extremely tight jeans and the removal thereof, and the kitchen table. While I appreciate that I should really have spent the night dreaming about choirs of sexless angels and the rolling aside of giant tomb-sealing-off stones, I'm pretty sure that this counted as some sort of religious experience.

"So I realize something as I was sitting here, indulging in a chocolate delicacy that resembles a bunny (it is actually made with a bunny trap and a chocolate ray, but that is another story).

Devouring it. Mmmm, it is so good. Look at the texture of the fur, there is quite a lot of detail in this treat. All of the waves of fur in their tranquil solid states, only to be destroyed by me at some point in time.

Sure it is all sweet and corny and not very thought provoking as it may seem like it was intended to be... but think about it... chocolate fur? How disgusting is that? What is this world coming to?"

"If you ever find yourself in a Baptist church on an Easter Sunday morning, and a congregant approaches and greets you with, "He Is Risen!"

The proper response is: "He is risen, indeed!"

Not: "Really? Cool!"

I swear, one of these days, I'm gonna get my smart mouth smacked right offa me."

The incomprehensible bbblakey:

Sauron is SO Shredder. This means that the Hobbits are the Turtles, Gandalf is Splinter, Orcs are the Foot Clan and Saruman and Grima are Bebop and Rocksteady. Oh, and Gollum is Baxter the Fly.

So there.

From pottersues...

snowyofthenight contemplates Daddy!Voldemort.

Anyway, am I the only one who CAN'T see Voldemort being a Daddy?
"Happy Birthday, honey! I got you a dead muggle!"
"Okay, dear, come here so Daddy can show you how to kill people..."
"Gosh, Daddy, are you really the ultimate evil and most feared person in the wizarding world? Coool! Will you come in for career day?" "Sure, sweety!"

"Oh yeah, I also got 3 boxes of Peeps. I have no clue what I'm going to do with them, but I have them. I think the icon is getting its revenge."

On alan_cumming, discussing how Alan Cumming was among the top 3 actors considered for the part of Willy Wonka (which eventually went to Johnny Depp), daarmey says:

I would definitely prefer Alan to Johnny... but if Sparrow is anything to go by...

We'll have a good Wonka no matter who got it.

A grammar lesson

ohliz takes us all to school in one of the best posts ever:

"Let's get to know our HOMONYMS! For you poor souls who don't know what homonyms are, I will tell you. One definition of a homonym is "One of two or more words that have the same sound and often the same spelling but differ in meaning." For now I'm going to discuss those homonyms that sound the same but differ in spelling and meaning, because the abuse of these words is making me crazy.

It seems that some people think that the different spellings are writers simply getting creative. That would be a big fat stinky no-no.

Here are some of the common "confusables" that people seem to misuse the most. (I am aware that confusables is not a word. I'm being creative, like you homonym-abusers! Hee.)

What's the difference?: YOUR is possessive. YOU'RE is a contraction for YOU+ARE.
Examples of correct usage:
YOUR: Is that YOUR monkey in a bucket?
YOU'RE: YOU'RE a whore.
Examples of INCORRECT usage:
YOUR: YOUR hot with three t's, thus making you hottt. (YOUR cannot be used to stand for YOU ARE.)
YOU'RE: YOU'RE dog ate my prom dress, and that makes me mad. (YOU'RE cannot be used to denote possession. EvAr!)

What's the difference?:AWW! is an exclamation. AWE is a state of being.
Examples of correct usage:
AW: AW! You are so cute!
AWE: I am in AWE of your humongous boobies!
Examples of INCORRECT usage:
AW: I am in AW of your massive Magic card collection. (That is wrong! That is DEAD wrong!)
AWE: AWE! You two are so cute that it makes me want to vomit! (Stop putting an E at the end. If you're not Dan Quayle, stop doing it!)

EDIT: I'm too lazy to do a whole write out for this one, but THEIR/THERE/THEY'RE is another one. If you don't know the difference and you're over ten years old, I'll be by to confiscate your computer shortly."
