I'm off to Italy on choir tour in the wee small hours of the morning. No internet access for about a week, I guess...

Cut just in case anyone hasn't seen those Dr Who icons go past yet... )

In Real Life, my brother is the world's biggest pain in the arse. After the incident last week where he came up to Oxford without his asthma inhaler and we had to call out an ambulance, this week's trick involved a bottle of whiskey at the school prom... he's still vaguely conked out on the living room floor. It's almost amusing. He's also the ONLY person I know who would attempt to say the phrase 'my mental faculties have been impared' while falling down drunk...

[profile] we_love_smudger, have you ever read Ivanhoe?

I was already thinking it was probably the best fun thing I've ever had to read for work-related purposes when who should show up and save the day in the final chapter but the Earl of Essex! And now Gary Neville is running around Sherwood Forrest with King Richard and Robin Hood and I am NEVER going to be able to write a sensible essay on this.....

I think everyone I know who applied for a postal vote with the exception of [profile] dyddgu ended up disenfranchised. Le sigh.
D'you reckon Becks, Mikey or any of the other footballers out in Europe registered for postal votes? And if so, do you reckon they arrived? I suspect it would have been newsworthy if they had and they hadn't... but mebbe that's just me.

I had a very long and complicated dream last night, which I'd probably write up as fic if it wasn't for the fact that I'm snowed under with work. It involved Thierry Henry being wrongly accused of murder but having difficulty getting off because admitting where he actually had been at the time the crime was committed would have meant admitting to Teh Slash.

Other news? 2 Longwall Street has turned into feminist boot-camp this week. I'm working on feminist linguistics, and [profile] vampire_kitten has acquired a copy of The Descent of Woman. Plus all the Andrea Dworkin stuff that's been floating around - another thing I don't have time to write is the poncy essay floating around in the back of my head on Dworkin's feminism and slash as the appropriation of the male body...it's been said before in general, but not specifically in relation to her ideas about body-indentity and pornography, I don't think.

Anyway. Back to the revision.
