Double Trouble

| | Comments (1)

I got the new Harry Potter Soundtrack yesterday. Very exciting. There's a whole new verse to the song "Double Trouble". If I had the time I'd go find the lyrics to try and learn them...

ah screw it, that's what google's for right?

Double, double, toil and trouble. Fire burn and cauldron bubble. Double, double, toil and trouble. Something wicked this way comes!

Eye of newt and toe of frog,
wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
lizard's leg and owlet's wing.

Double, double, toil and trouble.
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Double, double, toil and trouble.
Something wicked this way comes!

In the cauldron boil and bake,
fillet of a fenny snake,
scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
witches mummy, maw and gulf.

Double, double, toil and trouble.
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
Double, double, toil and trouble.
Fire burn and cauldron bubble!
Something wicked this way comes!

Dead Body? :(

We think we saw a dead body this afternoon. There was a campervan stopped in the middle of the road, and we could see some legs sticking out of the drivers side door. We just thought it had broken down, and the dude was under the front, or under the steering wheel or something. But as we drove past we saw the guy's face was covered in blood. There was a ranger that looked like he had been there a short while flagging us past. We figured he must of been dead because noone was giving him first aid. It was really strange because it wasn't a car accident, as there was no damage to his van. All we could think of was perhaps a road range incident, as he was stopped next to an intersection. It would also explain why he was partly out of his van. It was very disturbing. I've never seen a dead body before. Well I've seen bits of bodies in the uni's anatomy and pathology museums, but not a whole complete dead body that's only just died.

My favourite memes keep dying. Ok so only two of them have - this or that tuesday and friday five. Theme Thursday is good but takes too much thinking about. Anyone know any good memes?

To reiterate...

As I said in a previous post, all you need is Jason.. was feeling like crap after a wine-induced crash (wine and cheese night at work which was lovely, and ended up being the core four of us - luc, jim, john and I after everyone else left).. but feeling like crap when I got home and like I was going to throw up.. so put on Peter Pan and drooled over Jason Isaacs and felt immeasurably better after.

Sorry no Theme Thursday this week. Actually took a photo for it, but it was crap, and didn't really have anything else that suited the theme. First time I've conceded defeat since I started doing Theme Thursday. I promise I'll try better next time :)

Go Amber

Although I'd rather have seen Rupert win. I just didn't want Rob to, although it seems he did by default by proposing to Amber! I was looking at pictures of her in the Australian survivor - she looked so *young* then!

* I didn't get up for the eclipse this morning. Well actually I did set my alarm and got up, but I looked out the window and couldn't really tell if it was cloudy or not, plus it was cold and I would have had to get dressed and go out to the back lane, plus I'd probably only had about 4-5 hours sleep by that point, so I gave up on the thought and went back to bed. Pity really because apparently it was fairly clear.

* I checked the packing slip for the tiger lego mosaic, and there was really only meant to be six packets of black. So the problem was further upstream. They simply didn't pack enough black to complete the mosaic. Pretty tragic really. I'll see how I go with the other ones - there may be enough to complete the tiger with leftovers from the other sets.

* the husband of that ebay seller that stole my postage money mailed me back this morning to tell me that his wife had been in a serious car accident and was basically disabled. I had a look, and there's been no feedback for over a month, so it's quite probably true. Pretty sad really. Makes quibbling over $30 seem pretty insignificant in the grand scheme of things.

So today Peter Pan was released on dvd. Naturally I went out as soon as I could to go looking for it. Didn't see it at EzyDVD, so tried K-mart. Walked all around their dvd section, thinking it should feature relatively prominently, being a new release and all. Nothing. Had almost finished walking around when I saw it. Three dvds tucked in a corner of a shelf. Of course I took the nearest one and went straight for the checkouts :)

Got home, and put it on after Survivor. The dvd was actually poisoned with an advert for another movie at the beginning of it!? What are they thinking? Only vhs tapes hired from video stores are allowed to have those! I just wanted Jason dammit!! So anyway. Jason is, of course, lovely, although he simply cannot shout. It doesn't work. He is so softly spoken and is at his best when he's whispering menacingly. Which he does several times and I melted into a puddle. Can't help thinking of him as Lucius though. Comes from watching Chamber of Secrets too often.

Other than that. The Patriot which I ordered on dvd for $13.95 turned out not to be the right movie and they "apologise for the inconvenience this causes" and said the actual price is $31.95. Can prolly buy it in BigW cheaper than that, will keep an eye out for it.

Also accidently touched the lens of my camera today. Pissed off at leaving a smudge. I do have some lens cleaning tissue, but no fluid, and breath condensation just leaves streaks :(

Once again it's entirely way past my bed time. Especially since I want to get up at 4:30 to look at/photograph the lunar eclipse. hrm. This is not looking good. I'll think about it in bed :)
