Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

The Third Horseman (reprise)

I have several empty files which think they are The Third horseman. Now I have an extra full one, with the watermarks on. I think some didn't make the transfer, but I chose quite a few I'm sure I've never posted before, and some lovely profiles.

Thanks to the Ebay Troll

There's a troll on Ebay who's selling other people's screencaps. She steals them from blogs and websites. Some are clearly watermarked and she doesn't even have the intelligence to crop that off. I think some are mine, but as I don't watermark, I can't tell for sure. I have no desire to make money from my pictures, I want everyone to be able to enjoy them FREELY. But I would like to know if someone else tries to make money out of my hard work and VIncent-love. So here's my first attempt at watermarking a set of pictures. I have no idea how it got to look like this, but I'll probably try to do a few different things before I decide on a final version.


Impostor was on BBC1 on Monday and I missed it!

OK, I have it on DVD, but only once - what if something went wrong with it? I need a belt AND braces (in the US you call them suspenders, but the alliteration of the "real" English is more pleasing) so I would have made my own copy. IT IS NOT FAIR!

BT and Sky - a study in ineffectiveness

I have a BT (British Telecom) phone line. When I signed up with the satellite company Sky, they offered free evening and weekend calls on my BT phone line.

Today I got a BT phone bill with THEM charging for those very calls. I phoned them. There were long queues and a call-back facility. I opted for it. Fifteen minutes later I got the call-back. She had to pass me on to someone else. OK. This person had almost lost her voice (ideal for answering queries on the telephone). She said she had to contact someone else. After a few moments of awaiting her return, I found I'd been put back in the queue. I decided after a few more minutes to hang up and try Sky.

After more than 30 minutes of "We are sorry you have been waiting longer than we would like. Please hold the line till an operative is free to talk to you," my meal was ready and I hung up in a second wave of disgust.

I have emailed both. The automatic reply says Sky hopes to get back to me within FIVE DAYS! Superquick, then. Did you people want me to change my broadband account to you? Apparently not.

Good news but...

Channel 5 is showing Malignant next Friday 7th December, out of absolutely nowhere. I love this episode. I'm glad they are showing it. But some rhyme to your reason, please, C5!

Tomorrow night there is a parents' evening at school, so I may not get a chance to post. If I miss Friday as well because of my friend coming for her usual visit, please forgive me. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

I've fallen

If I could just change the "shes" and "girls" the song would be perfect for the first time I ever saw Vincent as Bobby.

A quick recce of my Photobucket albums indicates that I previously made no fewer than 12 slideshows from Seizure. I thought I might reuse one or two.

Faithful Forever

Faith was on last night. I don't much like the subject matter, but it is a glorious episode for eyelashes. I can't guarantee I have displayed many of them here as the screen on this work computer is dark, but has reflections from a window on it. I CAN see that they are all beautiful, though.
