Hee, haven’t heard this for a while. So very cool. And the clip is educational. No, really!
(Okay, it’s not really, but it is fun.)
The other morning I woke up from a dream where I was planning a two-in- one novel about the characters from a BBC period drama and the actors that portray them.
I blame tumblr.
(I like the idea though, and my brain has been gleefully filling in the details. The novelisation, I suppose you’d call it, of the drama itself is in italics and interspersed through the slightly less melodramatic story of the actors’ lives. The setting is sort of hovering around post-WWI in the UK, with the massive changes in society. Consequently I’ve been idly researching Communism and the Labour movement in the UK. :) As for the actors, there’s two very strong male leads bonding nicely but not slashily, surprisingly. I’m making notes…)
I like gravy. I really like gravy. For dinner tonight I made gravy and ate it with bread.
(It was really nice! Sauteed some tomatoes with pepper and salt, added some roasting juices I’ve been hoarding, bit of cornflour to thicken. Perfect.)
Strength is being able to crush a tomato.
Dexterity is being able to dodge a tomato.
Constitution is being able to eat a bad tomato.
Intelligence is knowing a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is knowing not to put a tomato in a fruit salad.
Charisma is being able to sell a tomato based fruit salad.
I KNOW THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE PRETTY AND COOL BUT I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S FLYING UP AND THEN IT DECIDES IT GOING TOO FAR AND TRIES TO TURN AROUND AND IT KEEPS FLOATING AWAY AND ITS SAYING ‘SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT’
Traveller players are sagely nodding their heads saying: vectors, yes.
