It's Why I Do These Things I Do.

Sibling (*sharing something he read on the 'Net with me*): "HAHAHA! 'I'll be the Obama to your Hilary!'"

GUYS, GUYS, I've just watched this movie called Stormbreaker and it is the MOST HILARIOUS SILLY-RIDICULOUS parody of British spy movies I have EVER seen. It stars Ewan Mcgregor, Stephen Fry, Bill Nighy, Mickey O'Rourke and the prettiest beautiful new blond thing I have ever laid eyes on. Pretty Blond Thing's name is Alex Pettyfer, and I would choose him for Tidus for the way he makes me feel, except he is (a) too pretty for Tidus, (b) too smart for Tidus, (c) too serious for Tidus, (d) just wrong for Tidus. The only thing he has in common with Tidus is that he is (a) very blond, (b) very pretty, (c) very young. His mother was a model, and he was a model for Ralph Lauren and GAP, which explains why he looks so ridiculously pretty in all his movie shots. He turned down the role of Eragon. ... HOW MUCH PRETTY are we missing out on that we could have had because of that decision!? (Shh, don't tell me it was smart of him to turn down Eragon. I just want PRETTY. I don't NEED smart!)

... he's too young! for lines like:

This is after the Supervillain (who killed his uncle) saves him ... IN THE SAME MANNER as he KILLED HIS UNCLE.

Him: "Why did you do it (save me)?"
Supervillain: "I have displeased my superiors."

[some talking later]

Super-redheaded-supervillain: "You're not meant for this life (of espionage). Leave it. Forget about me."
Him: *fierce glare* "I'll never forget about you."
Supervillain: *shrugs* "It's your choice."

Speaking of FFX, elvaron has just linked me the MOST AMAZING Auron/Braska fic ever. You know there are those stories where you know you'll love them within the first ten lines? Yep! This is one of them. It's by ciceqi, whose FFAC work I adore, and I loved it even though I barely know anything about Braska yet (THAT WILL CHANGE).

Also, kotomine and I are trying to find as many badly+hilariously subtitled movies as we can, and between us we have:

Prisoner of Azkaban Bad Subs
AND the Yu-Gi-Oh Movie Bad Subs - which was WRONGLY subtitled with the SAME MOVIE POA got badsubbed with.
Star Wars: Backstroke of the West Subs
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Bad Subs
If you know of any more, please feel free to share! ;)

What Seto Means

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

The Yuugi/Yugi answer was really wrong, though. Totally off.


Today I met lonedreameryaoi for the

My City By Day Tour

(1) Since she's a movie fan like me, I had to show her The Cathay (my favourite cinema in the country), and warn her away from Golden Village for its thirty-minute ads of DOOM.
(2) Walked to the Singapore Art Museum (it is selling the loveliest stuffed toys for charity)
(3) Walked through the very pretty SMU - all the gorgeous water fountains
(4) National Museum: this was an AMAZING trip: even the free version is amazing! They have a Louvre Treasures exhibition on now that is totally ♥!
(5) Fort Canning
(6) past Stamford House (very pretty), to
(7) CHIJMES; and
(8) Raffles Hotel by day (for photographs, a new perspective!)
Stopped for lunch at a Vietnamese restaurant near Raffles Hotel and then went to Bugis to meet nescienx.

Met up with nescienx, who very kindly put up with me going cloth shopping at Arab Street (God, I love Aik Bee Textiles). We tried out the Fabric Flash Test: trying out how fabric looks under camera flash (you have got to know before you buy it!). nescienx came up with the idea, WHICH IS BRILLIANT. The very nice uncle was incredibly tolerant, many hearts to him!

Then to my place to meet up with aingeal_isilme. ♥ I honestly can't think of a better way to spend a torrential rainy afternoon than indoors with tea and two computers and anime and two of my most favourite people in the entire world. Especially since nescienx will be leaving again on Monday (cries!)! But I cheerfully subjected them to substantially the whole of Gurren Lagann, and and and: nescienx gave me The Office and Dexter *THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH ♥* and I gave her Supernatural and I AM SO HAPPY AT THE FANDOM EXCHANGE.

ohmyGod. nescienx showed us The Fire, from The Office, and

IT WAS EVEN BETTER THAN I IMAGINED IT WOULD BE.

For the longest time now I've been terrified that when I finally saw The Office, I would actually dislike Dwight, but to my COMPLETE JOY, I ACTUALLY LOVE HIM EVEN MORE NOW that I have FINALLY got to see him! I laughed so hard - he is an AMAZING character and his actor is an AMAZING guy for playing that character so damned well!

OH GOD AND THERE WAS SO MUCH MICHAEL/RYAN. SO MUCH. So much INAPPROPRIATE TOUCHING and Michael always wanting to BE ALONE with Ryan and shoving Dwight off for Ryan and hurting Dwight's feelings because Michael was SO OBVIOUSLY RYAN ♥, DWIGHT WHO?!

I wanted to hug Dwight all the time. Especially when he went into the car after Michael said Ryan knew more about business than Dwight did. And then he played EVERYBODY HUUUUUURTS.

And Jim+Pam were nice to him and then laughed about it afterwards.

... Jim's girlfriend looks SO MUCH LIKE PAM. It is a pity we cannot remember her name. Neither nescienx could remember the name of Ryan and Michael's girlfriends off the top of our heads. I thought Ryan was dating Kelly, but I wasn't sure.

OH RYAN. I think I've met too many people just like you to ever be able to like you.

I just want to make this massive Office post with screencaps everywhere going MY OTP, THIS OTP TOO, THIS IS MY OT3, ETC. ETC. ETC.

This episode of the Office is full of so much sad unrequited shipper moments for the slash fandom! Michael is crushing so hard on Ryan and Ryan is ^^;;; "Eheh. Uh." *edges away* Ryan is such a bad actor. I don't mean the actor is a bad actor, but ARGH, IT IS SO PATENTLY OBVIOUS what he is REALLY THINKING that I wonder how he's ever going to do in business.

I ship Dwight/Michael so hard. Also it is so unrequited, I cry! Just like Michael/Ryan is unrequited! But it is so sad, really!

Therefore I conclude that Dwight and Ryan should totally get together. ♥

AHAHAHAHAHAHA, and that scene where they all answer the "Who Would You Do" question had me hysterical. OF COURSE MICHAEL WOULD WANT TO SLEEP WITH RYAN. WAS IT EVER A QUESTION.

GOD THERE WERE SO MANY MICHAEL/RYAN MOMENTS, and I just went "OH GOD THAT IS SO WRONG" when during the fire, Michael went off with Ryan ALONE, and then got RYAN CORNERED IN HIS CAR. It was so POTENTIAL TEENAGE DRIVE-IN MAKEOUT SCENE except Ryan REFUSED TO PLAY ALONG.

... God, if you get off on Ryan's discomfort... this is such an AMAZING show. ♥

... I laughed so hard at the RYAN STARTED THE FIRE ~ song. SO GOOD.

... now I really want to go and watch that episode where Dwight takes Ryan off for a sales training course and then ties him up in the cornfields. ♥!



... WHY is it that it seems like at least 30% of YOU GUYS were into YGO long before I ever heard of it? If I go back through playthedamncard's entries to 2006, I FIND SO MANY OF YOU THERE?!
