I'm poking around the internet when I should be doing other stuff. I missed this first time around, and it's hilarious.

Mr Caz has a cold and it's sent his voice right down into his boots. I reckon he needs to get in quick and do some voiceovers for a few crappy movie trailers.

For the past few hours, the kids have been amusing themselves by getting him to say things like - "there'll be no escape for the princess this time" and - "come over to the dark side."


ETA - Are anyone else's LJ emails travelling by Carrier Pigeon via Outer Mongolia and the Faroe Islands?

- has made my day :-)

I know, I know. Little things please little minds...

But look at those dimples!

(Pic snagged from DT on Twitter)

And seriously - Comic Relief has missed a trick. Given the number of women (I assume they were women!) who had emailed in promising to donate £X in exchange for a wink (and bless him, the boy did 'em proud and got in some tongue action as well!) they could make a bloody fortune by just sticking David Tennant in front of a camera for a couple of hours and getting him to take requests!

caz963: (DW Ten and Donna not from Mars)
Mondays are shitty work-wise, so it was nice to find something waiting for me on my f-list that made me smile tonight.

When Plan C Fails... is a Doctor Who / Good Omens crossover fic by [ profile] oxoniensis that features Ten & Donna and Crowley & Aziraphale (with bonus Wilf and Sylvia).

It's funny, well-written and the characterisation is excellent.

Don't read it while you're eating or drinking though - there are some parts where that could be dangerous!
caz963: (What?)
I'm laughing so hard at this, I had to pass it on. I stole a meme from [ profile] selenak; I had to paste something wot I wrote into a box, push a button and my writing style is analysed.

It's sadly addictive, and it doesn't just have to be fic that you feed in - it can be anything at all.

I got a variety of results - apparently, depending on the fic and the fandom, I write like Stephen King (couple of DW fics), Margaret Attwood, (DW) James Joyce (God help me!), (WW) H P Lovecraft, Chuck Palahniuk (um - sorry, but who he? - and whoever he is, I write like him in both fandoms) and Mark Twain (another WW fic).

But this one cracked me up. I fed in a West Wing ficlet called Syntactical Pedantry and I got this.

I write like
William Shakespeare

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

I don't think I could ask for more than that, really, could I?

I should warn you that that fic contains no women dressed as men, no murders, no ghosts, no witches, no faries and no Princes of Denmark.

And before you ask, no, I didn't feed it any pr0n!
caz963: (DT Hamlet)
I thought these might cheer you up!

Pretty AND funny all in one post! )
caz963: (respect the thing)
Today’s post is about my favourite quote.

Yeah. Another Mission Impossible. As any self-respecting West Wing fan knows, there is a WW quote for practically every occasion, so it’s going to be impossible to choose ONE favourite.

LOADS of quotes under the cut )

It's Towel Day

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.
More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitch hiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have "lost". What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

— Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

This review of The Hungry Earth just popped up via my Google Alerts and made me giggle, so I thought I'd share.

The best bits, IMO are -

is this spoilery? )

[ profile] snorkel_maiden is a truly evil woman. Even though she gave me two goes at this.

1) Comment to this and I will give you three people.
2) Post this meme with your answers.
3) Provide pictures and the names of the three people I gave you.
4) Label which you would marry, shag, and throw off a cliff.

I get to choose between

1) Martin Sheen, Bradley Whitford and David Tennant
2) Meatloaf, Justin Bieber and Justin Timberlake.

1) is ... just mean
2) is ... a real trial because I've got to try to remember who the hell they all are!

So, in reverse order... (drum roll, please)

Number 2 )
Number 1 )

Yeah. You're all really shocked, I can tell :-P
caz963: (donna cuppa)
[ profile] nostalgia_lj will like this one :-)

We've just rewatched The Eleventh Hour. On seeing the interior of the new TARDIS, I remarked that it's very orange. My youngest (aged all of 7) then piped up:

She's GINGER, mum! That's why he likes her!

Why didn't I think of that? *g*
caz963: (doctor donna wtf)
I heard the radio trailer for DW in the car this afternoon. At one point, the Doctor says (presumably to Amy) We're only observers; that's the one rule I've always held to throughout all my travels (Sorry, I can't remember his exact words)

WHAT??? Bwahahahah!

If he were a wooden puppet who wanted to be a real boy, his nose would be about three feet long! *g*

caz963: (Doc me?)
I'm still at school, doing a few bits and pieces before tonight's performance and listening to the most recent DW audio, Dead Air. I dunno what they've done to it, but the lovely Mr T sounds like he's got a cold!

Anyway - the thing that has just made me snort my coffee is this line -

Well. I'm here to save the world. Failing that, Frinton.


(For anyone new to my f-list, that's where I live!)

*punches the air*! YES!! (And when he's finished saving Frinton he can come round to mine for tea).

Good God.

Now I've heard it all.

David Tennant singing the Major General's Song from Pirates of Penzance.

We took the kids to McD's tonight. We don't go often and we haven't been for a while, so we figured it was time for some junk food.

Anyway. Elinor was wrapping her chops around a huge chocolate muffin while Abigail opted for ice cream, when I noticed that Elinor had stopped eating and looked to be completely captivated by what Abigail had. Honestly, her face was a picture. So I nudged Mr Caz and we both sat there watching her, until she noticed and immediately straightened herself up.

Elinor: What?

Mr Caz & Me: Your face, looking at the ice-cream!

Elinor: I wasn't!

Me: Yes you were -

Elinor: No, I was looking at that (points to Happy Meal box). Anyway, Mum, you can talk!

Mr Caz: Your mum doesn't look at food like that - she just eats it!

Elinor: I didn't mean food. I meant when she looks at David Tennant!

caz963: (so not married)
I spoke to a colleague about an hour ago who's at school, and she told me that although the place is open, there are quite a few staff who couldn't make it in. That's okay though, because only about half the kids are in. Somebody phoned the local radio station and told them the school was closed!
caz963: (doc & donna facing)
Last summer, when Catherine Tate was appearing in a play in London, DFGs [ profile] hooloovoo_42, [ profile] zinke and I went to see it, and managed to meet CT afterwards. We chatted for a while, and then Fenny presented her with a DFG T-shirt featuring a mug shot of one Mr Whitford (taken in NY), together with a smaller, heart-shaped photo of CT and David Tennant underneath. Ms Tate seemed a bit bemused initially, but when she realised it was a pic of Brad on the shirt, she whooped with glee, and yelled, "oh, I love him!!!!"

Anyway, this morning on Radio 2, Tate & Tennant were sitting in for Jonathan Ross - and I really think they should do it more often, because they're a fantastic double act - and a listener emailed or texted in to say that they had been given a t-shirt for Xmas which had David Tennant's face on it, and that she was wearing it - and her husband was sulking. Heh.

CT then went on to describe - IN DETAIL - the shirt that Fenny had given her last year! If it's up on Listen Again, it was in the first half hour or so of the programme.

We've gone a bit Doctor Who mad here the past few weeks, because both Watch and BBC 3 have been showing different seasons each weeknight, one a 6pm and one at 7, so it's been a veritable fest of awesome hair and geeky glasses.

But this icon says it all about the one thing I'm not looking forward to this Christmas *sob*

On a brighter note though, if you haven't already seen this post, then I suggest a visit may well brighten your day, as I think there's something there for everyone!

My other selections -


caz963: (wtf?)
[ profile] gatsbyfan posted a fabulous video of Bohemian Rhapsody a la muppets the other day, and it reminded me of something.

Much as I love the song, I can't hear it nowadays without recalling the stupendous version which was released by Bad News in the 90s.

For anyone who's in doubt, it's a spoof by the guys from The Comic Strip, Peter Richardson, Ade Edmondson, Rik Mayall and Nigel Planer - and yes, it is Bryan May totally cocking things up on the guitar! I've just listened to it for the first time in ages, and seriously, I've got tears rolling down my face and Mr Caz has just handed me my asthma inhaler.
