The rules: All characters depicted in my icons are listed and paired off in alphabetical order. I've arranged them by surname. A couple of icons are a bit too weird for inclusion (e.g. Hulk Smash) and for those with two people on them, er, it's a threesome?


Well, that was weird o_O But a good example of Things I Will Never Write though I could be persuaded about the last one because Mimi in hanfu unf

From the PA wire (also now on the BBC site):

The BBC will scale back its Formula One coverage next season after a deal with Sky Sports which has secured the rights to show every race live.

The move follows speculation the corporation would pull out of the motorsport altogether for financial reasons.

Under the terms of the agreement it will broadcast half the races and qualifying sessions live - including the British and Monaco Grands Prix - and cover others on a highlights programme.

The six-year deal, running from 2012 until 2018, will see Sky double up on the races shown by the BBC and screen others exclusively.

BBC Radio Five Live's coverage remains unchanged.

Barbara Slater, director of BBC Sport, said: "We are absolutely delighted that F1 will remain on the BBC.

"The sport has never been more popular with TV audiences at a 10-year high and the BBC has always stated its commitment to the big national sporting moments.

"With this new deal not only have we delivered significant savings but we have also ensured that through our live and extended highlights coverage all the action continues to be available to licence fee payers."

Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports, said: "This is fantastic news for F1 fans and Sky Sports will be the only place to follow every race live and in HD.

"We will give F1 the full Sky Sports treatment with a commitment to each race never seen before on UK television.

"As well as unrivalled build-up to each race on Sky Sports News, we will broadcast in-depth live coverage of every session."


Fuck you, F1. Fuck you, BBC. Fuck you, Sky. If ever I had a reason to stop watching the sport, this is it. Congratulations. Not even that wanker Vettel and that disgusting bag of slime Horner had managed to completely put me off F1, but that's it. I am fucking done with you.

I just put the central heating on.

It's July and I no longer live in the southern hemisphere. WTF.

Today for the first time ever I actually physically ROFLMAO.

Okay I probably did that many times when I was younger but the days of pre-internet acronyms don't count.

I was a bit 'meh' over a fic title and so I asked [ profile] diagon's advice, and we threw a few ideas around, and then she came up with a suggestion that was so funny that I couldn't breathe with laughter and did actually have to roll on the floor laughing my arse off. For about five minutes. Sometimes fandom is so hilarious.

Blue has been chosen to represent the UK in Eurovision.

BLUE. One of the most mind-numbingly bland and tedious boybands ever to walk the earth. Purveyor of dull ballads. And even better, they're singing a song they wrote themselves. Hurrah. I can't contain my excitement.

This time last year the committee had only just announced that Pete Waterman was writing the song. We didn't get to choose the representative until the middle of March. Obviously since Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Pete Waterman did such sterling jobs over the last two years, the UK public are no longer trusted with voting for which representative we want to send to Germany. So instead we get Blue and their new single.

I say unto you: WTF.

Though I wonder if it's not a smart attempt to land us with 0 points again, because Lord knows with the Olympics etc next year it's not like we can afford to host Eurovision.

lf you are a disregarded entity with a single owner who is a foreign person and you are not claiming treaty benefits as a hybrid entity, this form should be completed and signed by your foreign single owner.


So I have this one page form to fill out for the IRS and it has eight pages of instructions that all read like that. Lovely.

Oh, and my left shoulder is completely out of alignment. I actually feel sick with pain because it's grinding in the socket. Ibuprofen and bed, methinks.
