Too much political stuff on my blog these few days. It’s cooling off day so let’s cool off. Let’s have some eye-candy instead. This is why I watch Merlin (also, silly British humour amuses me + sword fights FTW)
I’ve been in an incredibly good mood these few weeks. It’s a mixture of happiness that the holidays are approaching, of the idea that I may be promoted, of an upcoming trip with the boyfriend and of the awesomeness that Smallville and Merlin have been in recent weeks.
Actually I wanted to write about the SGEM and the current news about various education issues but I’m tired and I don’t feel particularly inspired to write either.
So yeah, perhaps the hiatus might continue for a little while more.
Maybe this is what people mean when they say mid-life crisis (although I maintain that 30 is too young for one).
It is true that I have generally been coasting along in life, allowing myself to be taken wherever life takes me – and frankly, it hasn’t been bad. I have a job I generally enjoy, I live a fairly comfortable life and am quite happy with how things are going.
Yeah, I know I said I would keep my fangirling off my blog but it’s Comic-Con! And from all accounts, it was pretty awesome. I need to figure out a way to go there and keep my job. I mean, life is about experiences and this is really something I want to experience! This year, there was Merlin, Smallville & The Big Bang Theory. I would have loved to be at the panels. And the comics!
That said, I’m very thrilled because I managed to see the s3 Merlin trailer. It was EPIC. Ok, it probably wasn’t that epic but it certainly got me excited. I cannot wait for it to start again. Oh, and Smallville should be starting up as well and that should be fun as well, especially since it would be their last season.
I’ve been binging on FMA: Brotherhood over the past few days. Not only have I watched all the subbed episodes that are showing on Animax, I’ve also been watching the English dubs, which I have to admit, has a charm of its own. Then I sit there and think about how great it would be if I could clap my hands and have cool things happen. I quite enjoy the plot of course and it has both humour and drama but I love the characters more. I like the bond between the two brothers and I really enjoy most of the supporting characters – in fact, I can’t think of any who annoy me (which is more than I can say about some other shows *ahemSmallvilleahem*). And there’s cool fighting which I always enjoy.
In other news, the cast and crew of Merlin are apparently back in France filming and the cast is looking adorable in the pictures again. So I’m a little excited at going there but also a bit wary. I mean, sometimes I think it’s a bit much isn’t it?
Except for some reason, it’s called The Adventures of Merlin. Anyway, this is just an excuse for me to put up more pretty pictures on my blog.
Merlin and Arthur on a break
And Gwen because she is just so pretty (sorry Morgana)
Oh and in case you were interested in my TV viewing habits, I’ve stopped watching Smallville again (because I’m getting really annoyed at how they treat Superman). Let’s see how long this hiatus lasts.
Found it on Science Blogs. Yeah nothing to do with BBC’s Merlin though. :D
King Arthur was in Merlin’s laboratory where the good wizard was showing him his latest invention. It was a chastity belt, except it had a rather large hole in the most obvious place.
“This is no good, Merlin!” the king exclaimed, “Look at this opening. How is this supposed to protect m’lady, the Queen?”
“Ah, sire, just observe,” said Merlin. He then selected his most worn out wand, one that he was going to discard anyway. He inserted it in the gaping aperture of the chastity belt whereupon a small guillotine blade came down and cut it neatly in two.
“Merlin, you are a genius!” said the grateful monarch. “Now I can leave, knowing that my Queen is fully protected.”
After putting Guinevere in the device, King Arthur then set out upon his Quest.
Several years passed until he returned to Camelot. Immediately he assembled all of his knights in the courtyard and had them drop their trousers for an informal “short arm” inspection.
Sure enough, each and every one of them was either amputated or damaged in some way. All of them, except Sir Galahad.
“Sir Galahad,” exclaimed King Arthur. “My one and only true knight! Only you among all the nobles have been true to me. What is it in my power to grant you? Name it and it is yours!”
