the less gripey anecdote part

Anecdotes continue to accumulate mostly unposted, but I did wanna mention a few things.

Front page of the Metro today included that it's the two-year anniversary of gay marriage today.  (And that's of the ruling taking effect -- which was 6 months after the ruling itself.)  Wow.  I totally hadn't realized it had been that long.  I keep forgetting I was a junior and thinking it was only last year.

From the Metro Da Vinci Code movie interview with Ron Howard, Tom Hanks, and Sir Ian McKellan.
Sir Ian McKellan: I'm very happy to believe that Jesus was married.  I know the Catholic Church has problems with gay people, and I thought this would be absolute proof that Jesus was not gay.

I really should have been LJing before TV tonight so I could actually get to bed at a sane hour, but I was playing with iconning instead.
I made a violin icon -- which I've been talking about wanting for some time now.  I would kinda rather an icon from this picture, but I can't get it to crop in a way that I like (and that still looks good resized).

I've also been playing with picspam from helholden for an androgynous icon (which has also been fun with cropping -- would anyone wanna see the ones I don't use?), but I went to upload the one I decided I wanted and it seems to still have the greenish tint from before I upped the red.  Not fair.

Okay, okay, bedtime.

Oops. Closing your door -- because you're trying to write and any sort of vocalized conversation is distracting -- means everyone goes to bed without saying goodnight to you,
hipster me

I saw that in an e-mail. No lie. Rock on, Royal Bank of Scotland. I've seen confidentiality notices as well as notations that a message was sent from a Blackberry, but this one is new. Auto-inserted into a message Prof.B. sent to them.

Lorraine, wanna posit Giles-in-love-with-a-penguin here? ("Name the weirdest fanfic premise you've ever seen - that worked.")

Eric says he could outdork my friends. Even limiting this to X-Men I think he's wrong. (Also from him: Win a free computer.)
