Day 113. Five guys you find attractive.

Isn't this pretty much Day 45. List five celebrities that you’re attracted to just worded differently? Hmmm, maybe not, but I think my answers would be the same.

So... Let's see... Instead I'll post about five actors whose work I really enjoy.

Day 94. What is one quote that inspires you the most?

I don't have one, but here are some of my favourites:

Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while.
The Princess Bride.

Be patient and tough; someday this pain will be useful to you.
Ovid

Do what you can, being what you are. Shine like a glow worm, if you can't be a star.

Your body is not who you are. The mind and spirit transcend the body.
Christopher Reeve.

Card game: Spider. Board game: Probably Scrabble

1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some TV show idea. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them.
3. Add in any actor photos, character bios and show synopsis that you want.
4. Post to your own journal.

I've already done 2 of these and it's a lot of fun. So, come on, surrender!

In case you don't know it, the I Surrender meme is a creative writing challenge. You are given a premise and have to create a TV series around that idea.

[livejournal.com profile] lost_spook gave me:

A detective (Victorian, Golden Age or modern, as you please) is hired by a very strange client - which leads the detective into becoming the no. 1 consulting detective for all supernatural and mystical beings in the country. There seem to be a lot of them...

[livejournal.com profile] lost_spook gave me:

Okay, you have all the might of the BBC at your disposal and a brief to make a big historical drama of a period of your choice! (Up to you whether it's well-researched and faithful or bears no real relation to actual historical facts whatsoever.) Only qualifier is - not something that's been done several times already.

(Sorry. Is that too evil?)


With that, I give you:

1) If you could hang out with an actor or actress (dead or alive) for a day who would it be, and why?
Una Stubbs. She seems like a sweetheart to me. She's been in acting for 50 years so she must have some tales to tell. I could ask her about being Mrs. Hudson too.

2) What would you do with him or her?
I'd take her to lunch at some cosy cafe where we could sit for hours while she talks about whatever she wants to.

3) Do you have a favorite movie of theirs? If so, name it.
TV series! She's Mrs. Hudson in Sherlock.

4) If you could hang out with a rock star (dead or alive) for a day who would it be, and why?
Freddie Mercury. Apparently he was quite shy in real life, plus, well, Freddie!

5) Are you able to play one of their songs on the guitar, bass, or drums?
Nope. I would have been able to on the piano.

Day 4. What is your best memory of last year?

Oh, easy! *points to icon* 16th June 2016. My friend Christine rang and asked if I'd take in a stray cat who needed a home.

Enter Daisy!

She was supposed to be a quiet kitty who just liked sitting on people's knees.

Nope, she's a total diva who likes shouting, creating mayhem, and much prefers it when there's a tissue spread out on my desk for her to sit on. Apparently her posterior is too delicate to sit on plain wood.

Asked by [livejournal.com profile] leesa_perrie.

Leesa asked about cities but I don't actually like cities. I much prefer towns and villages. So I'm going for favourite cities on TV/in films.

*Not to be taken seriously.*

1. London. Actually, London would qualify as a favourite city based on its history. But it's the city of Sherlock Holmes, The Professionals, Dempsey and Makepeace, with a history of Upstairs, Dowstairs and You Rang, M'Lord? And thousands of other series, films, and books. If it's set in the UK, it's probably in London. I'm surprised tourists manage to find their way anywhere else.

2. LA. I've seen a lot of US movies and shows. If I based my knowledge of geography on them, I'd be convinced the US consists of LA, New York, Washington DC (but only for politics), and tiny towns. I'd also be convinced that everything exciting happens in LA.

3. New York. This is the place where chefs, waitresses, and masseurs can afford really nice apartments. This is where Friends can afford to spend most of their lives sitting in coffee shops and not get fired.

4. Paris (France, not Texas.) The most romantic place on earth.

5. Sydney, Australia. Where everyone drinks beer, wears hats, and has an amazingly casual attitude over the myriad of poisonous creatures, plants, and trees that surround them.
arnie1967: (Cat - IsACat)
Sort of asked by [livejournal.com profile] changeling72.

1. Cats. Always and furever. I love my cats and always have. Until Bel died in May last year, I didn't remember a time when I was without a cat. Fortunately, 3 weeks later, fate and my friend Christine brought Daisy to me.

2. Rabbits. They are unbelievably cute!

3. Dogs. But only some dogs. I like smaller dogs rather than larger.

4. Pandas. Okay, they're not small - but the baby ones are. I love watching videos of pandas playing.

5. Koalas. Apparently, koalas are rather antisocial and tend to bite. Well. It's a good thing they're so cute.

O - Choose a song at random. Which ship or character does it remind you of?
