Must remember to return to this journal at some stage. Difficult to find time for things, but I need to remember to come back, if only to write about my OTPs. :D

Writer's Block: She's the Best

Who is your favorite actress over the age of 40?

Maggie Smith is brilliant, such a talent and such a great lady generally, nobody could play Professor Minerva McGonagall like he could and she's always one of the highlights of anything she's in (and she's Scottish, which never hurts!)

My favourite actress who is no longer with us would be Margaret Rutherford, because she reminds me of my Nannie, with a lot of her facial expressions and mannerisms, I always find her comforting to watch.
What genre of books are you most drawn to? Do you stick mostly to one type of book with your reading, or do you like to mix it up?

I'm into anything supernatural, the best one I've read for a very long time is Superstition by David Ambrose, that was awesome, if you get a chance, read it! :-D

Come Dine With Me Update

Erm... Well, truth be told, I've been planning this one for a while now (the idea came to me while I was watching that wonder of nature the thunderstorm and had Come Dine With Me on in the background, in mid-late 2010, so the five chapters are sort of set then.)

I can put the synopsis up if you like:

Alison Mundy (Afterlife), Dr. Ciaran O'Keeffe (Most Haunted), Connor Temple (Primeval), Gwen Cooper (Torchwood) and Steph Haydock (Waterloo Road) all take part in the show Come Dine With Me, narrated by Dave Lamb and filmed by a few bemused cameramen who saw the whole thing and still don't know exactly what happened.
Note: Not one for Gwen fans.

I did notice on CDWM that they always have these types: The Flirty Mature Woman, The Psychic Medium, The Geek, The B***h/T****r, The Bohemian and a few other character types come up from time to time like The Snob, they're better than you and they won't let you forget it, The Loud One and The Normal One. This is beginning to sound like a poor man's Major Arcana (Tarot reference there. ;-) )

So, Cast:

Night 1: Steph Haydock (The Flirty Mature Woman)
Night 2: Connor Temple (The Bohemian)
Night 3: Gwen Cooper (The B***h)
Night 4: Dr. Cairan O'Keeffe (The Geek, and that's not a criticism)
Night 5: Alison Mundy (The Psychic Medium)
Dave Lamb (The Narrator)
A few cameramen (The Eyes)

Eh? "Life?" Never heard of it... [Whistles]

The Rosenheim Poltergeist

Hello! I've been a bit caught up with real life for a little while and took up a new voluntary position at Preston Manor just before Christmas (get in! :-D )

I have also been reading about Hauntings in Europe and have come across a very intriguing case that's not very well known: The Rosenheim Poltergeist!

The Rosenheim PoltergeistCollapse )

Writer's Block: Meow vs. Arf

Cats or dogs-- which do you prefer, and why?

I suspect you already know what my answer is going to be. ;-)

CATS! (Funny that.)

Writer's Block: Kiss me, I’m Irish!

How are you celebrating St. Patrick’s Day?

With a nice Baileys. Mmm... ;-)

Writer's Block: Multiple Personalities

Introduce all your different personalities.

Dear me, how long have you got?

Writer's Block: Socially Active

What are your favorite LJ communities?

Anything to do with Most Haunted (and Jack/Ianto+Tosh in Torchwood)
but I've always had a particular soft spot for MHOTP. (^_^)
Do you have a blog? Do you support the fight against injustice and wish to help us prevent a Miscarriage of Justice against a UK Family?

Then if you are on wordpress you can ‘reblog’ this with two clicks. If you are not on WordPress you can copy and paste it and then share it with all your friends.

#FREEGARY NEEDS YOU! We need you to help us during the upcoming Presidential visit to the UK.

Let me explain – during the Presidents visit – theres a very high possibility that the #OBAMA hashtag will trend here in the UK and we want to get as many #Freegary tweets into the #Obama stream as possible.

In order to do that we need to spread the word and time is getting short. This is a great opportunity to end Gary’s mental suffering and the agony his family have endured, and continue to endure, under the threat of Gary’s extradition to the United States where he faces up to 70 years in a US Max Security prison.

Nick clegg himself said ““If he boards the plane to the U.S., it is almost certain he will never set foot on British soil again, doomed to pass out the rest of his days in shackles on a foreign shore. This is nothing short of a disgrace” ….(August 2009)

Gary will not come home- we need to ensure he never gets on that plane!

So, we need you to blog this and get the word out – and for those of us on twitter – we need you to tweet and retweet all of the #Freegary #Obama tweets which will be appearing in the ‘Freegary’ stream during President Obama’s visit.

David Cameron – “It should still mean something to be a British citizen – with the full protection of the British Parliament, rather than a British Government trying to send you off to a foreign court” ….(July 2009)

Once you have blogged this on your own blog site – send a link – and we will retweet it amongst the growing army of #Freegary supporters on Twitter and on Facebook.

You can start by retweeting this blog – using the buttons available – please share it far and wide.

#Freegary is NOT Anti-American -it is Anti-American policy and believes that the 10 years Gary and his family have waited is 10 years TOO long! Please join us – and help us to Keep Gary Home! You can get all of the information and background to Garys case from the Freegary website – http://freegary.org.uk

You can also send tweets of support to Garys Mother on twitter.
