Turns out my uncle dated a former Olympic gymnast
She didn’t win any medals, but still. My dad went to school with her too. Her name is Suzanne Dando.
I have the weirdest crush on Clare Balding.
Happy Birthday, Mr Potter.

Should’ve been silver, that was totally ours.

Honestly, I felt that the inclusion was the perfect nod to the Doctor. Those who...– A really nice comment on this article mentioning the TARDIS noise during the Olympic Opening Ceremonies (via notdoingmywork)
Me: Can I have a Cosmo please? And that is the gayest thing I've ever said.
Claire: I'm sure it's not, but it's certainly up there.
Not been on Tumblr in a few days, and can’t be bothered to scroll through 100+ pages. Just give me the gist, have I missed any huge memes or jokes?
I have found it! The greatest line in all of fiction, I have found it! Page 206 of ISBN 978-1-84529-779-4, The Mammoth Book of Alternate Histories. “Alan felt randy as a hat rack…” Brilliant!
A friend of mine, aged 24, has started dating a man aged 37. While obviously we are all grown ups and this actually doesn’t mean anything at all, there’s a considerably large part of my brain going, “Oh my God! That’s so weird!” It just seems a mind-bogglingly huge age gap.
The best lies to tell are the ones people want to believe– Jasper Fforde (Shades of Grey)
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.– Tom Clancy (via gaywrites)
Have today purchased a book called: How To Bag A Jabberwock: A Practical Guide To Monster Hunting It’s basically what it says on the tin, a field guide for tracking down, hunting and killing the greatest monsters of our time - vampires, manticores, yeti, the snark and, of course, the jabberwock.

Population vs. Area
I got thinking about how Russia and Canada are two enormous countries, but have a relatively small population given their size. And then I got thinking, what if we made everyone move to the country - that is, keep the borders identical, just move the people - around so that the biggest country also had the biggest population. Understand? So, for example, China would take over Russia, since Russia...
I’m playing Sims 2 again, in the Pleasantview neighbourhood, just carrying on the stories already set up when the game begins. It’s kinda weird … some of the original teens are now elders, and all their parents are long dead. Some kids born in game are now parents. Sheesh. For Sims experts and nerds who want to know the deal in this town: * Mary-Sue and Daniel Pleasant...
Louise: He was going on like we'd been together for years, saying, "Oh we've been through so much!" It was six weeks!
Me: Christ, I've had longer, more intense relationships with novels. Hell, I've had more intense relationships with chocolate bars.
Louise: Isn't it weird how someone really wanting you is a complete turn off?
You can't please everyone, so you've gotta please...

teapayne: take a moment to realize you have never seen your face in person, just reflections and pictures
sonofasenorpickle: “I’m gonna write today!” I say as I continue to browse Tumblr and sob into my keyboard at three in the morning when I realize I haven’t done anything.
It's been one of those days. And there have been...
