"Here's my royal foot on your royal buttocks!"  
Oh man, I watched the movie Becket a couple nights ago. The one with Peter O'Toole. And dudes. Dudes.

King Henry was so, so in love with Thomas Becket.

And the hilarious thing is that we totally watched this movie in my 11th grade English class. (It was her last year before retirement; we watched a lot of movies.) And, you know, I said the same thing back then! In essay form! Hahaha, some things never change. You can totally tell that I was trying to restrain myself from just typing in, "LOOK, KING HENRY TOTALLY JUST WANTS BECKET TO BE HIS BOYFRIEND AND STAY WITH HIM FOREVER, OKAY? Now give me my A."

In other news, I got new glasses! After four years, new glasses! And I can seeeeee things in the distance and they are so incredibly clear that it's actually disorienting. Also, they took pictures of my retinas and let me see. My retinas are awesome. They're all pink and healthy and you can see all the little blood vessels and they are so cute. Oh, and according to the guy who fitted my frames, my eyes are perfectly centered and... that's very rare or something.

And what do the frames look like? Oh, just a little something like...

I will take pictures when I'm less gross and my hair is clean.

Oh yeah, and the TOS meme:

I know how you feel! I just got glasses for the first time ever, and it's awesome to be able to see things that are far away. I had no idea what I was missing. :D My glasses are no where near as cool as yours though.

Man, for a couple of years I had glasses and never wore them, since I never needed to. Then I started to need to. Then that prescription wasn't enough anymore. :( Sigh, aging. But it's true, you really do get used to everything far away being fuzzy. Which is weird.

Heh, what are your frames like? My first pair of glasses was seriously uncool; I went in and was like, "I don't care if I look like Harry Potter, to be honest." Now I'm almost hipster cool and it is shocking.

I have pictures of them on my journal! I like 'em a lot. They only have frame bits running along the top. They are blue, and then the arm bits are green. :)

Will uploading Evo episodes redeem me? >:D I have them on MegaUpload, I am just a lazy ass about compiling the links for you (and returning emails, evidently, although switching domain hosts sort of murdered all ongoing correspondence I forgot to forward to myself ahead of time *smrt*). Perhaps I will upload them to my site, instead, so I can link you to a file directory and save myself effort. . . . :-?

Ohh, I see. No problem, though, since I do similarly aaallllll the time. Truthfully, whatever is easiest for you; I can work MegaUpload fairly well with my connection, but I may have to experiment a little to see what I'd need to do to get it off your site. Might need to finally get that program or whatever that you recommended before for restarting downloads.

This is a great time for it though, because suddenly I am all about getting tv shows on my computer. And it's very fun.

Well! We are brethren in our laziness. B-) I had started uploading the eps onto my domain, but that seemed to be taking a year and a day, SO by now you have likely begun receiving MegaUpload notification emails by the truckload. :)) Hopefully it doesn't flag them as spam since there are so many coming at the same time. >.> In any case, most of the eps seem to be little files meant for video iPod viewing, but you can still watch them reasonably well on the computer. :D There is one elusive episode from S4 I cannot seem to find, so I will wait until I track it down to do that season. . . .

It is terribly addicting. :| :| I have filled up two 160GB and one 750GB external hard drives full of music, movies, and tv shows, and the percentage of crap I have actually watched is maybe five percent. Maybe. And yet I continue collecting. :))

I miss my Remy/Pole icon. ;_;

Hooray! I've spoken the truth and won a kitten!

... the sad thing is, I really sort of want that kitten. Oh god, so many cats already.

I LOVE THAT FILM. For years I have been trying to convince my family of the tr00 luv of Henry and Beckett. My mum is on board, but the rest of my family remains skeptical. It's so completely obvious, however.

Have you seen The Lion in Winter? It goes down the 'Richard I/Philip Augustus were totally doing it' route. And Peter O'Toole plays Henry again. The dialogue occasionally annoys me (it's way too clever), but it's a good film :)
