Update on Rudy. And some random links of interest.

The short version is that the vet thinks he's going to be okay. The long version is longer.

So it turns out I missed Talk Like A Pirate Day. I can't really talk like one, but I love songs about them and I wanted to share one of my favorites: Stan Rogers' Barrett's Privateers, about the "privateers" from Nova Scotia who raided American ships during the American revolution. And here's a live video of Stan singing it (which admittedly I first watched for Stan's sexy brother Garnet ... he's the one with the long luscious hair).

There's a nice interview with Neil Patrick Harris at the Onion's AV Club: I would say I'm about 75 percent technique, and 25 percent Red Bull.

The new Stargate: Universe sounds ... well, awful. Could these characters get any more clichéd? And speaking of Stargate, I think Keller ought to be climbing Ronon like a jungle-gym and bring Rodney in for a threesome. Meanwhile, Shep can find solace with his new Runner. That's how I would write it anyway.

Are you a knitter? [info]sarcastic_jo found this cool Java charting tool that I'm going to have to try out.

And finally, I found this article on white privilege really thought-provoking.

Now I think it's time for a good long nap. I hope you're all having a great weekend!

Recycled links

1) I made a new icon in honour of JKR's announcement that she's publishing a new Beedle the Bard book (for charity, thank goodness) in which she'll attempt an explanation for the complete bollix that she made of wandlore. (Thanks, [info]fourth_rose for the heads up.)

2) I thought everybody had seen Harry Potter and the Deathly Abridgement (courtesy of [info]sdk) but just found out I was wrong, so if you missed it, you must watch. Neither worksafe nor liquid-drinking safe. (Shelly's stalking of Mr. Friskett should expedite part 2.)

3) [info]omarandjohnny graced me with comment links that have made me smile repeatedly over the past few days: a double dose of Neil Patrick Harris and his lovely boyfriend, David Burtka (Part 1 and Part 2)

4) Nathan Fillion is scruffy love. He can bring a big booming cheesy something by my place any time!

5) This wins for sheer kookiness: Simon Pegg and Keith Olbermann on Elle Woods: The Musical. (Thanks, [info]sarcastic_jo!)

6) I have such love for Red State Update, their long-running parody is without a doubt the best thing about the U.S. elections. In McCain and the Internet, Jackie reminds me way too much of my dad.

7) The Hogwarts Reunion Is When Everything Changes was runner up in the Doctor Who/Torchwood Slash Awards. I certainly don't mind being second to A Mischief of Memories, a brilliant DW/LOM crossover fic.

Now back to work, and to the second client I've discovered plagiarising in as many weeks. Time for a smackdown!
