And, super-sekrit message to Jenn: thanks! I'm already nearly done writing this one, which hasn't been hellish at all. *shrugs*

"Pepper," they will say, "have you finished your [community profile] apocalypse_kree  ficathon piece?"

"Yes," I will reply.

pepper: Pepperpot (Easily Amoosed)

Wow, snow. Ooh.

Am now exhausted, after a long weekend of parental-type visits. Spent Saturday helping my dad to do up his garden (pressure washed the patio! Woohoo!), by the end of which I was muddy, exhausted, and happy (I love all that - miss having a decent garden to muck about in). Then on Sunday, visited A's mum and her husband, and had a very civilised lunch and chat and look at photos of A when he was a baby (so cute! Whatever happened?). 

Oh, watched the '100 Greatest Stand-Up Comedians' on Channel 4 last night. Hmm. Not sure I entirely agreed with the choices made, but hey. And, my god but Jim Davidson's an unpleasant man. As is Bernard Manning (not that this is news...). Was reminded of how much I love Bill Hicks - died at 32, which is sounding younger and younger. And I love Bill Bailey's arcane knowledge. And the way Dylan Moran uses words. And Eddie Izzard's glamorous weirdosity. And Mark Thomas's intelligent activism. And don't find Al Murray funny (what's the point of that frickin' Pub Landlord thing?). And I remember when Jasper Carrott had me crying with laughter, ditto Billy Connolly. And Victoria Wood is a genius, but I wish they'd stop playing that one damn song. And I wish they'd put more stand-up on TV. 

edit: A fun afternoon:

pepper: Pepperpot (Cuddle a Colonel)
It's Friday, I've just joined [profile] kellifer_fic's [profile] schmoop_agecom (because I've thought of a story so schmoopy that it needs to be herded with creatures of its own kind, for camouflage), everyone on my flist seems to be writing stuff that's making me want to simultaneously laugh my socks off and hug you all, it's dark, and I'm wearing sunglasses.
Okay, last two aren't true. But the rest are. And actually it is kinda dark in here. Can't we open the blinds? I feel like I haven't seen the sun in months. *pokes mole-like colleagues*
Lalala, I'm just rabbiting. MS Word is badly educated. My vocabulary is much better than its. (Okay, and more colloquial, admittedly, but it doesn't recognise some words that aren't made up by people on lj, too.) This makes me feel smug, even if it's like proclaiming my superiority over some nerk off Big Brother.
Thank you all for your prompts recently, guys. They were most excellently inspiring. I've done four of six – the other two involve Cam, and I want to watch a few more episodes of him before I try writing him again. Study him closely. Okay, yeah, that's purely an excuse to watch teh pretty, so sue me.
Been watching Green Wing series 2 this week. Dreamed Tamsin Greig was my friend, partly because she really reminds me of a RL friend of mine. Also there were zombies, and I was in a greenhouse, choosing jewellery... eh. And Sue White is teh funny. "Do I look like a mug? Have I got a handle? Am I made of china? Am I kept in a cupboard or on a small wooden tree? Would you like to put your lips on my rim? You may answer that question, the others were rhetorical."
*meanders off again*

Are you tugging my squirrel?

Oh, blast! lj just decided that 'backspace' meant 'go back to the previous page and lose everything Pepper's just written'. Damn you, lj, damn you to helllllllll!!!

Okay. Today I be mostly enthusing about Green Wing. Because I can. And because it's Friday. And because I mentioned it to [personal profile] crazedturkey, and it seemed a bit rude to fill up her comments section with quotes and stuff.

 And just to warn you: if you're of a sensitive nature, some of the quotes may offend. I don't know that it will, I say this just in case your sense of humour is not as sick as mine.

Meh. January. First day back at work. So here's some quotes from Steven Wright to cheer things up:


I'm a happy-go-lucky scamp...

Gloomy weather. Today I would mostly like to be at home, watching Black Books. Because... well, because I would. Okay, these probably won't be funny unless you've seen the series, but they're keeping me sane this morning.
