What the merry heck???

A lunatic with a gun has gone on the rampage in Cumbria.

These are villages I know really well, it's the least likely place I can think of for something like this to happen. Tragic and horrible and bizarre.

ETA: The guy may have shot himself. Gods, this thing is horrific. ):

In other news, I have been striken by the Gods in the form of a very bad back. I'm in quite a ludicrous amount of pain and am not supposed to spend much time on the computer (looks shifty). The one good thing about this rather unpleasant state of affairs is the bad-ass drugs the lovely NHS has provided me with. They don't look like a carrot but have tended to make me extraordinarily high and this is by way of an advance apology for anything I might say or do for the next several days - it may not go well. You have been warned.

About Doctor Who? Rather brilliant, is my initial opinion, nothing more to say right now as I'm about to drink some rum and watch I Love You Philip Morris

I shall let you know.

The Guardian asked people for their messages to Our (two new) Great Leaders and upload them to Flikr and here they are. This is ongoing, so if you've got a message for NicknDave, feel free. Needless to say, this is causing a buzz on certain coms I might have mentioned yesterday which should lead to some interesting messages (hopefully).

I particularly like the peas in a pod one because it is slashy, satirical and deeply pertinent in a political way, all at the same time (and you can't say that very often).

This is all just too naughty good not to pass on

There's now a com (of course there is!): [ profile] clameron - for all your C/C shipping needs (not sure I have the strength to sign up for that one yet, to tell the truth).

There's also [ profile] uk_lolitics  and some delightful news and features:

A Star Crossed Coalition

The BBC looks at the body language

What Dave and Nick said on the steps of #10

And omg! the more you delve the worse it gets - Election fandom, Boris Johnson slash? (my eyes! My eyes!!!)

Many, many thanks to the delightful [ profile] omphalos for finding most of the goodies listed above and starting the ball rolling. The slashtastic icon is by [ profile] shazz_chan and [ profile] omphalos .

Nick and Dave, can their love last? Watch this space...

'Displays of affection'? - Nick and Dave, the slash is just writing itself, isn't it.

Need icon? Or is that just that  touch too disturbing...

ETA: Love ins, wedding cakes - C4 News is going with the same theme, Jon Snow's hearing wedding bells. This is getting scary.

Your goodbye was dignified, graceful and moving.

Twitter's (rather predictably) on fire... )

No doubt this one will run and run, but I have an appointment with Chuck and a very stiff drink

Anyone else watching BBC1?

This series of Doctor Who just goes from strength to strength, reminding me more and more of old Who - only better *  If next week's outing is even half as good as the trailer, it's going to be spectacular.

And who didn't give a little piggie squeal of joy when the Doctor's 'papers' had a picture of One? I know I did, quite startled the cat.

*though I can't help thinking the estimable Toby 'Being Human' Whithouse has read Jonathan Strange. Just a feeling. ;o)
