This is [livejournal.com profile] _missmargaret_ 's fault. She posted about this Public School choir  from Statten Island and I thought Mmmm cute kids, so what. But then I listened. Take 8 years off the Glee kids and look at the talent here. YouTube phenomenon too.


 

I also recommend the Crowded House number Don't Dream It's Over.

First of all, AOL seems to be very choosy about which comments it is notifying me about so I apologise if I don't acknowledge any comments until ages later if it's on my journal and not at all if it's on yours.

More importantly I thought I'd pimp somebody I've enjoyed reading recently. She writes in Buffy/Angel and also Bones. It's the latter I want to draw your attention to if you aren't already aware. [livejournal.com profile] bite_or_avoid  I hope you don't mind me pimping your latest fic but it deserves it. Post Goop on the Girl ficcy goodness

In other news, it has snowed today Bwah ha ha.

Dear me it's hot. I'm all red faced after sitting in the sun at the cricket yesterday - which Durham won in the last over. This was good as the other two games we'd been to last week were defeats *pout*

Speaking of hot, cop this....



You know you want him to.

mistletoe: (Hello)
Yes it's me. I am back from the swamps of snot to near normality, Been off work since last Thursday when the voice went and since then I've had a couple of days without voice but lots of sleep, a two day sneezing fit and a day of just feeling meh. But today, today I am lert. And so what do I do? I sign up for a ficathon. Clearly my brain is lagging in the fevered realms. Still, I want to write. I have no time or ideas but so what?

So this is a pimp for [livejournal.com profile] grazieprego  run by [livejournal.com profile] lynnenne  and [livejournal.com profile] kita0610 to celebrate the FIFTH (I know, omg, 5th) Anniversary of the first showing of TGiQ the most Spangelicious episode ever. Needless to say it's Spangelcentric. You know you want to read (and write) more Spangel, it's been a while I'm sure, but we love them. So get on over there and sign up. You know you want to.

No other news really 'cos, well, I've been in. So here's a middle aged moment from Jack Barry:
Middle age is when your wife tells you to pull in
your stomach and you already have.

 Does SAD affect you even when you're at home? Any way, what news?

1. I have just finished this month's quiz which was a bit of a drag to be honest; hardly any exciting little nooks to get lost down. It was mostly google, wikipedia, write answer. Incidentally while looking for the German for cross country skiing I came across an inexplicable reference in the wikipedia entry on that topic, which would probably offend [profile] kita0610 immediately. Not being a member I couldn't remedy the slur but if you want to look for yourself it's here under 'A Hobby and a Sport'.

2. Went to a 40th birthday party last night. Nothing too remarkable you might think but the 40 year old was a former pupil whose daughter I now teach. To add to the surrealism of the whole thing another former pupil was there who said I taught her 20 years ago and I look exactly the same. She didn't, as I have no idea who she was. Anyway, the evening was very splendid with the fp's hubby fronting Trevor and the Negatives in a trip down memory lane of Beatles and other 60s standards. Maybe I am old as I remember all the words, but not the former student's names. I met a lot of old friends, most of whom have retired, so that was depressing.

It was all for a good cause though. 15 years ago The couple's first baby, Matthew, was born with a genetic disease which is incurable and cuts the child's life to less than a year. I will never forget his funeral, particularly as the baby's grandmother, a colleague who had just retired was the organist of the chapel where the service took place and had to take part in the service in a way she would not have wished. 

So last night was a fund raiser for the Jennifer Trust Charity that supports families of children with the same disorder. Happily, Trevor and Jane have two beautiful daughters as the disease only affects males although females can be carriers. Strangely, Jane is from a family of girls only.

3. Christmas shopping in Durham went remarkably well with jumpers for dad and a makeup box for Louise as well as sundry little treats including a white Christmas cactus to grow. Obviously the Newcastle experience last month was an aberration.

4. Sport was OK, though it was sad for Scotland to go out in the way they did. Let's hope they get a decent Group for the World Cup qualification as their exploits this time round will have moved them up the rankings. McClaren seems to be carrying Sven's luck. Still Croatia could beat us and then the fat will be in the fire.

5. I have read some very good fic this week, almost all from the IWRY marathon. If you don't mind Bangel, give it a whirl.

6. As mentioned on the day, Thursday was the anniversary of the operation to remove the non-malignant meningioma from my brain but since Thursday 2007 was the crappest day of my life I am not going to dwell on it. Hopefully the anniversary of the operation to repair the hole left in my skull the following March will be better.

7. Talking of skulls, Bones was no more than average this week.
8. A day at Bowburn Hall hotel on Friday for the annual standardisation AQA meeting was only cheery in that I missed the Children in Need day at school. I said quite a lot though and it sounded as if I knew what I was talking about as the other people there were tres impressed.  And we got the grades right. So there.

 Go here. Go now. Do not delay. I have commanded.

In other news, I just watched Bones: the story so far on Sky HD1 and they had Dr Zack Addy on the strap. Is that official then?

I'm on  [info]su_herald and I had a fic dedicated to me caused by a little bunny I mentioned in a comment. Don't know if that is self pimping or not but go look on  [info]bugs_n_slime for [info]lostakasha 's Booth and Hodgins in the SUV. It's excellent. If this is what happens when I start thinking and writing then let it roll. Heee.
