[Error: unknown template qotd]Hildegarde Withers   by Stuart Palmer. I love the novels and the short stories, and the movies (when I can get them)  Murder on the Blackboard i had on tape for a while and is actually brilliant and still feels fresh after 70 years, which is saying something. 

What I found particularly intriguing is that in the books Piper and Miss Withers have a very very low key relationship, you know they care deeply about each other but there is a sense that sexuality is something that happens to other people. In the movies there is sexual tension and actual innuendo and it works. Edna May Oliver and James Gleason play off each other perfectly it's a real treat to watch.

::::sigh::: Still waiting for the DVD:::::::

I love poetry.

So this topic kind of kills me because I have so many favorites. However I think I'm going to pick Robert Frost’s "Death of a Hired Man" It’s a conversation between a farmer, Warren and his wife Mary about a hired man they’ve employed in the past whose come to ask for work (or to find a comfortable and familiar spot to die) Warren and Mary debate the meaning of the word “Home”. Warren, in the most famous line of the poem, says that “Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.” To which Mary replies, (and I always get goose bumps when I read it)

“I should have called it

Something you somehow haven’t to deserve.”

The idea that a place of comfort and peace is perhaps the one thing you shouldn’t have to work for or measure up to…makes me cry every time.

With all that's been going on lately,

And all that I expect to be going on after tomorrow's episode, I thought now would be a good time to lose ourselves in some excellent long fic. So once again I urge everyone on my flist (who hasn't already) to head over and enjoy the House Big Bang stories

In particular I want to rec Adagio by [livejournal.com profile] kimbari  an excellent love triangle between House, Cuddy and an OMC. Don't let the omc put you off.  the story is Huddy, and excellently written with snappy IC dialoge it made me laugh and cry (at the same time). Don't miss it.

I also want to rec [livejournal.com profile] cryptictac 's Lead you into the Night, another excellent Huddy fic that shows what happens when Cuddy's vision of life as it should be crashes into her reality with her new daughter.  Excellent fic

So far I keep reading these two stories over and over but I know there are more excellent stories with great authors out there that should be enjoyed at House Big Bang

Fic Pimp!

Ok guys I was in the enviable position of being a beta to the Big Bang Fic Adagio by Kimbari

Which can be read here, http://housebigbang.panfandom.ca/fiction/adagio.htm 

And I can't recommend it more highly. It is the story of a love triangle between House, Cuddy and Julian a 30 year old ballet dancer who has the good sense to fall in love with Cuddy at first sight.  

Seriously guys, excellent LONG work (30k words) and complete. I admit I'm biased, I tend to volunteer to beta for really excellent writers (which makes gushing about what they write easier) but I you'll love it.  snark, sex, drama, dancing, sex, fighting, Jewish mothers, baby's...  I cry (and laugh) every time I read it.   

There are 14 other excellent fics at the archive to be read and enjoyed (and I'm looking forward to all of them, but no time to read and rec all tonight) and there are another 13 from last year so if you are looking for long fics of all descriptions this is very entertaining archive.

So, avidreadergirl, your LiveJournal reveals...


You are... 4% unique (blame, for example, your interest in stewert granger) and 14% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy wine). When it comes to friends you are normal. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are keen to please. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is conventional.

Your overall weirdness is: 24

(The average level of weirdness is: 29.
You are weirder than 53% of other LJers.)

Find out what your weirdness level is!

Ok I am not the only person in the world who has heard of Stewart Granger, who was a great actor, though he got typecast as swashbuckler, King Solomon's Mines (original), Prisoner of Zenda (remake) and Scaramouch were probably his most successfu films. Though he had a slew of others in England. Besides being a great actor he wrote an amazing autobiogrpahy called Sparks Fly Upward, where he talks about growing up living in the same house as his sister, his father (an army officer) his mother and her lover (a general practitioner). About his plan to murder Howard Hughes (with photos of the cliff he was going to push him off of) Hughes was trying to blackmail/coerce Jean Simmons into bed with him (she was Mrs. Granger at the time) about filming King Solomon's Mines in Africa and having to help smuggle camera equipment past a pissed hippo (apparently hippos can be quite aggressive) Strongly recommend that book to everyone.

Under the cut is a long movie mem.  It proves I have no life. (Tell me something I don't know! )

no life movie mem )

Last year I signed up for two fics for the Cuddy-Fest.  The first, "Living the Nightmare." I finished in time. Yay me :)  The second, barnburner for the prompt "Five times Cuddy really wanted to hit House and one time she did."  Remains unfinished and at this point it probably won't be. I figure if canon Cuddy has enough self-control to not punch House when he says "You'd make a great mother." in Joy or after the boob grab in LTEC, she isn't going too.

Since how Cuddy was compelled to use the password "partypants" for the PPTH main frame relates to the time (in my fic) that she did hit him and it came up in a discussion I'm posting it here.
This is a vignette, unfinished and unbetaed, and since I'm dysgraphic and have a doctor’s note that says punctuation is optional, when I say unbeated I really do mean read at your own risk.  You have been warned. 

Barnburn unfinished and unbetaed. )

I always have problems traveling, mostly because the instant I get on a plane I seem to get a head a cold that makes the ensuing flight an exercise in torture and the vacation itself somewhat lackluster, because I'm sick.
The worst was coming back from a cruise I took that left Galveston and went to Merida, Cozumel and Belize. It was a theme cruise and I was able to meet several authors I like including Mary Higgins Clark, Jo Beverly, Kat Martin, Vince Flynn, and Lee Child, and to attend readings and panel discussions and etc. Plus dinners with several authors.

It was a nice vacation but I was ready for it to be over. So when my flight was canceled (moments after being assured it was "just late") I was in tears. I was whisked off to the Houston Hilton and assured they'd get me home the next day.

When I went back to the airport the next day I found out that they'd accidentally scheduled me for a flight the next month. More tears, and I was being hustled to another airline, in another airport, and had fifteen minutes to check in, which I did. I then got the full "search" treatment since I was a late addition to the flight. The security staff were very nice, but kept asking why I was so upset after coming back from such a great vacation? All I could say was "I want to go home." 

bubbleigh: (Clever House by Missbutterfly)

"Either the drugs kill me or he kills me, doesn't seem to make a lot of difference." 

Maybe I'm just stupid. But shouldn't it make a difference?  The whole reason the idiot has been forcing 13 to take the drugs is so he can see if there are any interactions since she's taken all the drugs he has.  However, he's aware that she has Huntington’s that she is reacting badly and differently than him to most of the medications so far. He's been told outright she will die if she takes the last med.

So if she's gonna die from taking the last med how can he tell if she's going to have any interactions? She's gonna die. End of story.

Is it just me or is this a huge logical problem the show ignored?  It could be just me I can miss the forest for the tress sometimes.
