Comment on this entry and I will give you a letter. Name 5 songs you love starting with that letter.

It's a difficult concept, actually, picking songs that aren't necessarily your favourites but are your favourites beginning with a specific letter.

I was given the letter 'A'

I should be doing something productive. I did this instead. [livejournal.com profile] elaby gave me these five things to write about:

Holmes/Lestrade, Tim Stamper, Clive Merrison, icon-making, Russian!Holmes-and-Watson.

Lots of writing!

Holmes/Lestrade )

Tim Stamper )

Clive Merrison )

Icon-making )

Russian!Holmes and Watson )

tl;dr? I really like those five things!

Been working in an office. Office work sucks! I admire anyone who can work as an administrator and not go completely bonkers. Truly, they are the bravest and hardiest of our species and the Brits really excel at administration. If the French are a nation of waiters we are a nation of administrators. Administration saves the nation! (for the Yes, Minister fans).

Not this Brit though, I hate it. Hate hate hate it with all my soul. It pays the bills but it drains the intellect out of me. When I worked in an office full time a few years ago my IQ (admittedly not the best measure of true intelligence) actually went down a few points. I am chronically alergic to office work.

I do get Mondays and Fridays off though, so that's nice.

In other news, I have mostly been watching The West Wing and classic British comedy from when I was wee, some of which is still hilarious and some of which I can't actually believe I used to find funny. That's a bit sad, finding out the shows I remember with fondness where a mere load of old poop. Alas.

I've also been trying to articulate my thoughts on why I love The Ladykillers. So far I have OMG ALEC GUINNESS AND OTHER MEN I CAN SLASH HIM WITH!!!!11! That's about it. Not good enough really, but it might have to suffice.

Oh and the other day [livejournal.com profile] ceilidh_ann did a post about what wallpaper you have on your computer and I uploaded the pic but never got round to posting because I never do today what I can put off until I'm nearly middle aged.

Oh well, must be off. Time and motion wait for no man.
