I really, really love The Thick of It

Really love it.

I just watched the first two seasons and...

Wow.

(My brother told me to lay off it just before Christmas guests came, because apparently I swear 150% more in the hour following any exposure to that show)

Is there fic for this, somewhere? I mean, there has to be. Seriously. Not least because Malcolm is a crazy electric storm of sexual tension, but because Olly is such an adorable little bastard ("Shagging your way to the top?" "I'm not Scottish, I've got to get there somehow.") and the pinning against walls I mean come on

... and even better, the movie is coming soon and has Tom Hollander in it. I adore Tom Hollander.

I finally got around to watching the pilot for White Collar, and I remembered how someone on my flist said it was great and fun and sexy and just screaming OT3, among other things.

They were so right.

I mean, it's terribly silly but it's fast and kinda funny and I really like it. I'll probably get really boring about this real fast, so I'll just say this: Matthew Bomer's eyes. Oh dear god, his wide beseeching mischievous cocky vulnerable beautiful damn eyes. And the way they change from when Peter is saying "I'm putting you back in prison" to when Peter's half-smiling and telling him to stop dancing in the office.



Also I got a snow cookie thingy. I don't know what that is but THANK YOU :D (you know who you are)

  • Exams are upon me, officially, from today. Study break has begun, and I remember why study does not agree with me. I cannot focus on one thing for more than a few... I'm sorry, I lost the end of that sentence, I was thinking about Batman.  And if I fail because I'm writing genderswap fic, blame [livejournal.com profile] _lady_vanilla_and the ridiculous amounts of win she is made of.
     
  • [personal profile] oni_butterflyis awesome. ALGERNON THE NINJA KATANA OF DOOM  SAYS HI, BB.
     
  • I found out there are two schools of thought regarding Lou Reed's 'Perfect Day'; 1) that this girl is the only thing that 'keeps him hanging on' to life and all that, in a very sweet simple way, and 2) the ironic version, as backed up by the ending 'you will reap just what you sow', in which this girl gave him a perfect day and yet keeps him hanging on the edge. I can't decide which one to go with.
     
  • THE ABOVE HAS BOTHERED ME ALL DAY. I HAD TROUBLE TALKING TO PEOPLE. I WAS TOO BUSY WORRYING ABOUT LOU DAMN REED.
     
  • I have found myself watching Rush solely because I find Samuel Johnson utterly adorable. He's all scruffy. And alcoholic. And socially impaired in the most charming way possible. Basically, he has my look - the beaten-up-puppy-dog look - and I cringe at the plot and the dialogue but I keep watching. Hello, Mr Shallow, come sit in the Character Flaw Room, you'll find many firends to talk to. (Also, seems every cop show on Aussie tv has a lipstick lesbian. Interesting. I did not know that was now a genre requirement.)

I just got home yesterday to discover my brother had stolen my phone and changed the ringtone to the Colbert Report theme tune, and because mum is out tonight dad picked up a film on the way home and he picked Watchmen. The boys of my family: currently being rather awesome. And in other news...
  • I sort of feel like playing the old put-itunes-on-shuffle-and-see-what-you-can-write-in-a-song game. So... um... if anyone wants to give me a pairing, or fandom, I'll write you, say, three song drabbles from whatever my itunes throws at me? If anyone wants? Just for laughs.
  • I was guided to this by the lovely [info]butchiemcgee (the mighty ruler of the land of gifs and Matthew Goode) and find myself... amused and highly, highly disturbed. That might just be a little too much information about The Bear Jew for me to handle. But I have now made myself a Basterds icon...


 
  • I WANT MORE ICON SPACE. SADFACE.
  • Everyone in my family loves Glee. Which is good. Less all-out no-mercy blood-and-tumble battles for the remote. At least on Thursday nights.



 
  • It is impossible to feel threatened by Cary Grant, even when he is trying really really hard.
  • Oh yeah, and the Emmy's! I missed them. I saw maybe the first half hour. I never cared before, but I sorta wanted to see if Jon or Stephen won anything :D. I did notice there were a ridiculous number of Australians. Neil Patrick Harris, why don't you like women? *sighs* Because I want to take Dr Horrible home. Just a little bit.
