The Davsters just got another girlfriend. I don't even hope to compete. He moved her into our flat, and with one glance I know she's here to stay. I don't even try to compete for his love and attention when he has her out, for I know there's a chance I might lose ;)

Say hello to my competition, ladies and gentlemen....

EXCUSE ME!? Bilbo Baggins on the front cover of Empire? Wait, no... holographic Bilbo Baggins on the front cover of Empire?! As part of a five-cover series?!?!

"5 Covers to Rule Them All"

Cooler words were never spoken.

Mah new best friend. I LOVE THESE THINGS!!

Happy Movember!

See, now I don't get this. Here we are, standing face to face with one of the greatest performers ever (seriously, my mind was blown tonight. Jack White is a musical genius. Probably a few other kinds of genius, too)

But anyway. Here we are. We are here. And I swear, if this guy took one photo, he took a thousand. He spent more time with his nose stuck in his camera than he did with his eyes on the stage. So, you know, he could show people what an amazing time he had.

...but besides the clueless fool in front of me, definitely the best way to spend Halloween. For reals.

IT'S GONNA BE A VERY JACK-WHITE HALLOWEENNNNNN

The Davsters found this hilarious. I think it's eloquent.

We make a good team. When I'm not on facebook. (em.barrassing.)

The Davsters found this the other day... amazeballs! I don't even remember the last time I saw one of those toy gun things.

I do, however, remember how much I loved the smell once they were fired.

:D

Neighbours havin' a party on the next roof over (I actually think they're filming). Music is awful but it looks savage!

I am usually a happier (and more in focus) Canadian than this. :)

New nighttime treat: camomile tea with a basil leaf.

Deeeelish.

(Jack Kerouac's On The Road)

Read underlined.

But please do me a favour. Read it. Don't just read it, but read it. Feel the words. Each one after the other. There for a reason, in that particular order.

Then tell me how long the shiver remains in your spine.

And tell me. Please tell me. How how how how how how did Kristen Stewart get cast in this piece-of-beauty-turned-film?

It is not often I am so utterly disappointed in something.

:(

Tried a new lemon meringue pie recipe and it was D.I.S.A.S.T.E.R.O.U.S. I mean, the meringue part was fine (though there wasn't enough.. but when is there ever enough meringue?!) but that's only because I didn't go by the recipe for that bit.

The lemon curd was a dull grey (ew)
The cornstarch didn't cook out properly (double ew)
Which meant it didn't set (sad face)
I stretched the crust too far so it mega-shrank in the oven (my fault, I know)
... aaaand it was late at night when I took it out, so I was tired and it made me pout (embarrassing)

I wanted to cry. I know not every bakescapade is going to end in success, but I was so disappointed! Please send me good lemon meringue pie recipes so I can redeem myself, people!

THIS IS THE COOLEST GUITAR EVER EVER EVER EVER EVERRRRR.

... you bend the strings with your knees.

Far. Out.
