Hey, Tootsie - Meet The Snack Fairy!!! *G* - "You didn't hear about the polar bear?"
Hey, Tootsie - Meet The Snack Fairy!!! *G*|
I just realized that maybe... just maybe... you weren't aware that Colin Mochrie was doing commercials in the States as The Snack Fairy! Did you, tootsiemuppet
? You can see some small snippets here: http://www.nabiscoworld.com/snackfairy/video1.aspx
It's not the full commercials (I was hoping for the one where he gets mistaken for an exotic dancer at a bachelorette party), but, it'll give you a taste. *G*
And... I'm starting on "The Ionian Mission" - heee!
I'm watching "Ghostbusters II" on TV, and I just realized who Denethor (movie version) reminded me of - the crazy Carpathian who's the villian of the movie. Bill Murray is great. *G*
IONIAN MISSION! I'll start too. Whoot!
ooh, ooh, final scene of Surgeon's Mate. Discuss. I started crying. I couldn't help it. Happy tears! I've never ever wept happy tears for a book.
Well, no, we still need to talk about the entire Temple scene.!!! *glomps you*
(Hehehe, yeah I'd seen the commercials. *L* *loves that man*)
Awwwwwww... I don't know if I cried during the final scene, but I loved things like Jack telling Diana how proud he was of her, the two of them arguing "like hammer and tongs", using that horrible, tasteless, ugly amethyst ring as the wedding ring (*shudders*), Babbington, of all people, doing the service - and wonderful Jack giving away the bride!!!
Didn't you feel sorry for the "widow" afterwards? And Jagiello? He really sounded as if he'd finally fallen in love with somebody!
And dear Diana - couldn't she have started low and bargained up, rather than offer Blue Peter right at the start? *L*! And... *L*! - the crawfish!!!!
I loved things like Jack telling Diana how proud he was of her
I know, I knowwww. Jack's mood changes toward Diana more or less correspond with mine usually, and I was so glad he actually did the good thing and told her. Though really if she HADN'T done that, they probably wouldn't have suspected En Esteve nearly as much. Still she stuck her neck out for him, and she gave up something that was so extremely precious to her, and I just had to love her for that.
the two of them arguing "like hammer and tongs",
Haha! Actually I didn't know that expression, so "at it like hammer and tongs"... I didn't know WHAT to expect there that made Jack leave their room in disgust. *L* Was mildly disappointed they were arguing. Also the one time I honestly rooted for Diana against Stephen. She made a very valid point there about him treating a proposal too business-like. And then he opens up a little, shows vulnerability and she jumps on it.
using that horrible, tasteless, ugly amethyst ring as the wedding ring (*shudders*),
Lol, I know. *cackles*
Babbington, of all people, doing the service
EEEEEE Yesssss! Also he's a post captain! Captain Babbington! Lord! I love that man to bits but I still see him as a spotty little brat sometimes and it's so good to see him all grown up like this. How old was he? eighteen? Something like that?
Wish you joy of your promotion, dear sir!
Didn't you feel sorry for the "widow" afterwards?
Honest? Um. Not really. Does that make me a bad person?
And Jagiello? He really sounded as if he'd finally fallen in love with somebody!
I just saw Jagiello's infatuation as just that, just silly puppy love... He'll mourn and lament and then get over it. Judging from his rant on women as helots, I doubt he'd truly fall in love with someone without even having spoken to her.
And dear Diana - couldn't she have started low and bargained up, rather than offer Blue Peter right at the start? *L*!
Roflol I know! Still, shush, it's a nice gesture. It's what won me over to her ;) Finally something that doesn't bear any hint of selfishness, this was truuuly something she did for Stephen's sake.
Yes, that's bad of you! Poor Jag's heart of stone towards women finally softens, and there she is, having to help them escape, and thereby losing him! *sniffs* It's romantic, dammit!
Absolutely - truly a noble gesture on her part!
(remember? they ate the bad crawfish (all but Stephen) and spent the rest of the trip stopping at evey bush? *LOL*!)
I suppose that might have been why I didn't feel too sorry for her. Because she knew what was happening, and she knew that ultimately she was doing good by him, which would have served as a comfort.
*L* Ahhh, THAT crawfish. XD
I have to admit I laughed out loud as well when Jack kept trying to out-eat the um.. French guy whose name I forget now. I mean, it's utterly pointless and yet SO very Jack.
Yep - Duhamel! *G* Damn, some of that food sounded good... except the "balls of tripe that a man might eat forever". Excuse me while I go get sick...
Clearly it's time for me to re-read these.
DUHAMEL! Haha, that was it. I loved that Jack still complained about the food, too. I mean... a Brit of all people complaining about the French cuisine? That's just funny.
*hides from all Brits*
It isssss!!!!!! "They can't make a decent pudding - all froth!" *L*!!!
You know, it just hit me how funny these books are. I mean without actually being comedy books, and with the general description of them running along the lines of "boats and war", I seem to spend a whole lot of my time reading them laughing.
I can so see that resemblence between Denethor and the Carpathian!!!
And I adore Colin as the Snack Fairy, he's just so cute anyway :) :)
Love Colin - *S*.
Cool, somebody else sees the similarity!
