singular love affair

Woe. In a big way.

You know, sometimes I wish I was like, rilly rilly cool and made insightful posts that create much discussion and perhaps inspire people to do things and therefore leave lots of comments perchance with random declarations of love from perfect strangers who desperately want the next chapter of my novel-length fantastically inaccurate yet popular smutfic to come out.

And then I realize that I just spent a good hour debating the finer points of cheese with one of my friends, including what type of crackers are best served with what kind of cheese, and I know that I can never be that person.

Pity really. Then again, if that were the case, I'd have to be writing a novel-length yadda yadda et cetera adjective smutfic right now, AND I JUST DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THAT!

Ahem. Right then. As you were, and such.

Tutor: What is the name of the 4th Harry Potter book?
Students: *awkward silence, coughing and looking at each other*
Me: (thinking: Oh my god...) Goblet of fire.
Student: Goblin of fire?

Tutor: Who is the author of the His Dark Materials Trilogy?
Student: ...C J Lewis...?
Me: (in my head: *THUD*) @_@

And sooner or later, the stupidness started rubbing off on me:

Tutor: Which planet is nearest to the sun?
Me: Venus! ^-^
Students: *awkward silence* ...

algor's feeling his age:

I find myself spending an inordinate amount of time looking at tweed touring caps. I'm suddenly pondering the virtues of competitive flower growing, antique motorcycle restoration, and assembling a respectable collection of classical music, opera, and jazz. I want to get cardigan sweaters for Christmas. I'm wondering how much it would cost to really do birdwatching right.

I think I should have my own show on PBS. "What to do when you're becoming Richard Attenborough."
