ok, *that*'s spooky


"This one's tasty, I'll have lashings of him"

The DW fandom cries out as one...

(PS: *very* subtle with the TV aerials ;)

BETAMAX! I *KNEW* IT! ;)

PS: TENTACTHULU!

What you meant with the tv aerials, did I miss something? And the lashings quote, and the fandom...or was it just an "ooh, er, missus" thing? *whoosh*

The aerials were all this shape:
----
    |    |
    |    |
---------
|   |    
|   |
    |----
    |
    |

Which I suspect actually makes them ayrials...

Maureen's quote was just a "this is going to cause fanfic and excitement" comment. (She was fantastic in that role, FWIW). And it was just a great line.

Oh, you mean like a swastika? I didn't notice that! But I did think the father reporting the faceless people to the police was a good analogy to the communist witchhunts of the era. I love Maureen Lipmann (would have liked to have seen that play she was recently in), she must have had a ball :-)

She was certainly fabulous in Aladdin with Sir Ian...

Which leaves me wondering, what the hell are you doing on a Saturday night?

I don't think I even know what the word means in that context.

With such a silly conversation to be had, I'm mystified as to why I couldn't find you on IM a while ago, but I do now (checking the time)hope you're in bed.

Oh yeah, I remember, I'm supposed to call you this weekend. Shall try to have a coherent thought about it on Monday since tomorrow we're doing Family Road Trip (with hiking through waterfalls).

It's a reference to slash fanfic - as in relationship (according to Wiki). I suppose it sounds slightly better to "ship" a pair of character than to "slash" them. But only to someone who doesn't know the context.
