Want this whisky bottle oh so badly, don't you, Captain? ;)
The above mentioned picture shows
Also - never neglect an opportunity to post an excerpt of your current obsession. I've already told you how those (that is - obsessions) tend to affect me, right? Mostly in a positive sense. Obviously, "The Adventures of Tintin" isn't such a good influence as one might expect...
Since my hair is already standing up in a most ridiculous way (due to a misguided hairdresser who apparently had something against me. And the gravity), the Fate (such a joker) had a fresh idea. Nether alcohol nor a smoking pipe but an epic crash down the stairs. It could have been a page out of a comic book for all the banging down. Step for step. Really - I always thought the authors were exaggerating but it certainly is possible to fall down the stairs the "showy" style. Without breaking your neck (don't try it at home, kids!) but only with skinned knees, some fancy bruises and a bit of a shock.
Maybe I should get me another obsession. A really boring one would be nice for a change.
(But the Captain and Tintin being so perfect together makes it hard to resist. I even start lusting after some longish fan-fiction stories or a role-playing full of epic fails, crazy adventures and glorious misunderstandings. Once a junkie - always a junkie >3 any interested parties?)
Also, are there any Jeeves & Wooster crossover with Tintin's 'verse? There definitely should be - just think about how Bertie would have taught the Capitan to act like a proper squire (including playing golf without destroying the whole place, getting engaged a bit more often and bearing with less colorful ties).
I always crave for the wrong kind of crossover - try and find any Weiß Kreuz & Sherlock BBC crossfiction among all the single'verse stories! I ought to start writing again. Beware: According to my experimental reports I tent to amuse my supervisor a lot. Have some quotes:
[German. The next one will be in English due to the American Prof. teaching us. Since he won the Chemistry Humbold Prize he's the boss.]
"... der entscheidende Schritt ist dabei die Zufallsreaktion." [Sollte natürlich die Zerfallsreaktion heißen.]
Und so eine Redewendung wie "... durch die gedankliche Extrapolation der Literaturwerte." ist anscheinend auch nicht Existenzberechtigt ._."
/back to learning. NOW.
PS. Yes, dreamwidth. Because I love to try new, shiny things out? And because of the tintin_kinkmeme. Obviously.
I'm still mostly on the LJ, though. Home, sweet home and all the amazing friends <3
