Coast to Coast Walk [Jul. 3rd, 2008|07:58 am]
llightfoot
I've always wanted to walk across England, from St. Bees to Robin Hood's Bay, through Yorkshire and the Lake District. This plan is tentatively scheduled for Fall of 2010 when archerpren and I are going to Bath, for Jane Austen festivities, then we're going to split up--she's going to go off to play with Chad, and I'm going to head to Northern England. I thought some pictures of how lovely it is might be of interest.

AFA's Search/Replace Function Works Perfectly

Category: Politics
Posted on: June 30, 2008 9:30 AM, by Ed Brayton

This is absolutely hilarious. The American Family Association has a policy at its new outlet, OneNewsNow, never to use the word "gay" but to replace it with "homosexual." And that works absolutely perfectly until they write an article about an athlete whose last name is Gay, as in Tyson Gay, the fastest man on the US Olympic track team. And then you get this:

Tyson Homosexual was a blur in blue, sprinting 100 meters faster than anyone ever has.

His time of 9.68 seconds at the U.S. Olympic trials Sunday doesn't count as a world record, because it was run with the help of a too-strong tailwind. Here's what does matter: Homosexual qualified for his first Summer Games team and served notice he's certainly someone to watch in Beijing.

"It means a lot to me," the 25-year-old Homosexual said. "I'm glad my body could do it, because now I know I have it in me."

List ten fictional characters you wouldn't kick out of bed (in no particular order) and tag five people to do the same.

1. Let's start with the obvious--Mr. Darcy.
2. Newland Archer -- The Age of Innocence
3. Tom LeFroy -- Becoming Jane
4. Laurie -- Little Women
5. Holden Caulfield
6. Minister Ramberti -- Dangerous Beauty
7. Guy Bennett, Tommy Judd, James Harcourt -- Another Country
8. Jesse Tuck -- Tuck Everlasting
9. Cary Grant -- Charade -- he had so many names in that movie, I can't remember which one stuck.
10. This one is really embarrassing, but I read it because of a boy. Mitch Rapp from any book by Vince Flynn

"Mrs. Hall of Sherbourne was brought to bed yesterday of a dead child, some weeks before she expected, owing to a fright. I suppose she happened unawares to look at her husband."

Jane Austen
