David Tennant and The Proclaimers

Spanning David’s first meeting with the Proclaimers to them presenting him with a special National Television Award.

Excerpt from the Graham Norton Show “Uncut” (April 2007)

Graham Norton:  You were in a fantastic video, the Proclaimers video
David Tennant:  I was
GN:  …and of course the Proclaimers are going to be playing for us in a few moments. They’re here.  The Proclaimers are in the building.  Was it all filmed in one day?
DT:  No!  I got a phone call… Matt Lucas phoned me up and said, “I’m gonna do this thing.”  He knew I’m a big Proclaimers fan.  He said, “Oh come along.  Join in.”  I said of course I will! I’ll get to meet the Proclaimers! But they’d been and gone when I turned up!  They’d filmed their bit, and I’m just stuck with Johnny Ball and Rod, Jane, and Freddie up the back!  And Dusty Bin.  Not that there’s anything wrong with them, they’re lovely people (especially Dusty Bin), but I was devastated.  So to find that tonight I might actually get to meet the Proclaimers… I’m a little bit over-excited.
GN: I hate to break it to you, but we did tape them in the afternoon.  They’re not here.
DT: <long pause> I wouldn’t have a sense of humor about that.
GN: They are here, they are here.  Don’t worry.

"Studies reveal that women bring new knowledge, skills and networks to the table, take fewer unnecessary risks, and are more inclined to contribute in ways that make their teams and organizations better. Successful venture-backed start-ups have more than double the median proportion of female executives of failed ones. And an analysis of the 1,500 Standard & Poor’s companies over 15 years demonstrated that, when firms pursued innovation, the more women they had in top management, the more market value they generated.

Some men might wonder whether these benefits for the organization, and for women, might come at their individual expense, and ask, will I end up lower on the corporate ladder?

No. Equality is not a zero-sum game. More profits mean more rewards and promotions to go around. The risk is in not including women. Teams that fail to leverage the skills of a diverse work force fall behind. Two chief executives, John T. Chambers of Cisco, and Carlos Ghosn of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, have said that they can’t be competitive in the global economy without increasing their percentage of female executives.”

"If that isn’t exciting enough, try this: Couples who share chores equally have more sex. As the researchers Constance T. Gager and Scott T. Yabiku put it, men and women who work hard play hard.”

mayor commissions

ok how would you all feel about some acnl character drawing commissions?? i have up a regular commission post but ive only gotten one response so i figured id do something special for this animal crossing blog since u guys helped me out w/ sketch commissions when i was saving up for new leaf

so like… $5 for your mayor in animal crossing style, like this:

and $10 for your mayor in my style:

(but i did these fairly quickly so the lines and color would not be as sloppy) i can also add a villager in for like $3 extra. tho they might look odd in the second style since thats more realistic.

they’d be about 400 by 500px for the first style and 500 by 1000px for the second style on a transparent background w/ an optional white outline if u wanna put it on ur blog or something.

message me if ur interested!! and reblog to spread the word if u’d like!!

It's in the details

I couldn’t help but smile as I plunged my knife into the man’s neck again and again, knowing that it was finally almost over. Knowing that it would all be worth it.

I dipped my hand into his blood and drew the pentagram on the floor, as I had been instructed to. As I had done over and over for the last 2 years, 4 months, and 27 days.

I hardly noticed the sulfur scent anymore, didn’t even blink when the flames shot up and the demon emerged. I just stared into his cold black eyes as he snapped his fingers and the man’s soul was drug down to hell.

"It’s done", I shouted. "500 souls in exchange for her, returned to me just the way I remember her."

The demon nodded his horrible head towards me, and there she was, just as I remembered!

She didn’t look a day older than the last time I saw her. The pink-tipped fingernails. The red and white ice cream shop uniform. Her hair in a ponytail, pulled back through the hat with the cone on the top. She was even lying on the floor with the bullet hole above her left eye where the robber had shot her. Just the way I remembered.

I could only scream her name as the demon disappeared back into the flames.


Box Office: 'Fifty Shades' Becomes 6th R-Rated Film To Top $500M

Fresh off the presses, Fifty Shades of Grey has officially passed the $500 million mark at the worldwide box office. The Universal/Comcast Corp. film has earned $150m domestic (an impressive feat in-and-of-itself) and has earned $352m overseas for a $502m worldwide as of yesterday. As you of course know, the Dakota Johnson/Jamie Dornan erotic drama opened with a bang worldwide last month with a $93m four-day Fri-Mon domestic debut and a record-breaking (for an R-rated release) $266m global bow.

Stuff and fluff
  • I’m in week 10 of the Hanson’s Half Plan. 4 Tempo miles were run before work this morning. Nothing too exciting to report about this week’s runs except that I’m at 18/40 miles for the week.
  • I got a call from another sponsor this morning and they committed to $3,500, up $1k from last year. I was pretty excited, and then about 30 minutes later, the phone rang again. It was a brand new sponsor, who told me he was so excited to talk about sponsorship that he couldn’t wait to call me! He committed to at least $5000, but would like to leave his options open to adjusting that level to $10,000 as the year goes on. Um, yes please!?
  • So then I totaled my committed levels and I’m at $35,500/$50,000.  BOOM.  Feels good. Feels real good.
  • I’m having dinner with a college girl friend tonight. We lived next door to each other our freshman year and have been friends ever since. She has lacked some direction in her life and next month she will join the Air Force. I’m proud of her, but don’t think I could do that!
  • In other news, I made an effort with my appearance today and couldn’t quite put a finger on who I reminded myself of:

And then it hit me: 

Minnie Freakin’ Mouse! (Minus the yellow shoes and hair bow!)

Halloween Costume ideas?!?!

Happy Friday Eve everyone!

Enhanced Color Caloris

The sprawling Caloris basin on Mercury is one of the solar system’s largest impact basins, created during the early history of the solar system by the impact of a large asteroid-sized body. The multi-featured, fractured basin spans about 1,500 kilometers in this enhanced color mosaic based on image data from the Mercury-orbiting MESSENGER spacecraft. Mercury’s youngest large impact basin, Caloris was subsequently filled in by lavas that appear orange in the mosaic. Craters made after the flooding have excavated material from beneath the surface lavas. Seen as contrasting blue hues, they likely offer a glimpse of the original basin floor material. Analysis of these craters suggests the thickness of the covering volcanic lava to be 2.5-3.5 kilometers. Orange splotches around the basin’s perimeter are thought to be volcanic vents.

Фотографии на ходу 😁
Пишу пост в троллейбусе по пути домой
Жизнь пролетает мимо меня…
На самом деле, нас просто задержали на истории, а у меня скоро репетитор по общаге 😒
Наела всякой фигни на 500 ккал (шоколадка с ромом огонь 🔥)
Сейчас пообедаю чем-нибудь, а уже после репетитора буду рассчитывать, что захавать на ужин по калориям 🙈

Успевайте наслаждаться всеми моментами жизни, ведь они больше не повторятся 😊

Out with the old, in with the new.

The white bike seat has 12,500+ miles on it and has been ridden 525+ times. 

Here I am riding it when it was still new and the price tag is still on the first bike I rode with it:

I don’t know if Adamo bike seats wear out, but given my prolific (and well documented) us of chamois cream, I decided to get a new one. So far the new one does seem more comfortable so I’m glad I made the switch.

Where will the next 12,500+ miles take me?
