Utena: With Sword

Happy Birthday!

Happy eighteenth birthday to The Sister!

Yes, my little sister is 18 today. How terrifying is that?

In any case, I shall be seeing her in a few weeks, when she comes down to Melbourne so we can see Placebo (and afterwards she wants me to take her to some clubs, since it will be all new and exciting for her...)

ETA: Via SMS, I am informed she got a digital camera from the Parentals.

And on another topic, This year's Bulwer-Lytton Contest results are out.

There's lots of funny stuff here, but my two personal favourites:

The official runner up: "I know what you're thinking, punk," hissed Wordy Harry to his new editor, "you're thinking, 'Did he use six superfluous adjectives or only five?' - and to tell the truth, I forgot myself in all this excitement; but being as this is English, the most powerful language in the world, whose subtle nuances will blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel loquacious?' - well do you, punk?"

And just one of the random entries: "Twas brillig, and the toves were not just slithy, they were stinking drunk."
Utena: With Sword

Holy crap!

Was lurking around a few threads on the OG, when I stumbled upon a recent - and rather unexpected post from Teh Moff.

(From here)

In response to a previous commenter's "Writer Steven Moffat has all but admitted that The Doctor & Rose were sexually active as of the 'Doctor Dances' episode"

Teh Moff:
"I say, no I didn't! The whole scene was about the fact they WEREN'T at it - indeed, it was the Doctor being slightly hurt that Rose hadn't even considered him in that light.

There's precious little evidence they ever got up to anything, I'd have said - that it doesn't stop it being a love story, of course (it clearly was) but unrequited surely?

Oh, it's all sex with you lot, isn't it? And when the writer of Coupling says you're banging on about sex too much, it's time to start listening.

Steven Moffat

Did mine eyes just decieve me, or was the word "unrequited" just used to describe the Doctor/Rose relationship by someone in the know?
