Sinric is practising a song he's been working on.

For those familiar with the works of Gilbert and Sullivan, they may recognise the tune as being A wandering minstrel, I from The Mikado.

Only in medieval Frankish. And in a slightly different tempo to suit the change of language.

Okay, here goes my first daily entertainment post. Since no one did one yesterday, I guess I ought to make sure we don't miss two in a row.

If your pup could have any theme song, what would it be?

Multi-pup post: sparring grounds

ostro_goth: (Valentinian the droid)
[personal profile] ostro_goth posting in [community profile] milliways_bar
At the sparring grounds this morning, there are several people around. It had been raining in the night, and the morning is cool and invites exercise.
  • Teja is having an all-out axe fight with his sparring droid which he calls Valentinian, given to him by Atton Rand many years ago. This droid doesn't talk, as Atton had ripped out the talking module just in case the rest of the re-programming wasn't complete enough; but for all these years, Valentinian has done nothing but spar when told to.
  • Galen Erso, on the other hand, is sitting on a tree trunk and watching the Goth proudly denting the ancient, priceless antique some more. As far as he is concerned, this droid belongs in a museum; but as he got here from talking to Teja about his irrigation system and the parts he needs for it, he's not going to offend the smith who has offered to make things for him.
  • Dr. Hannibal Lecter, at the same time, is going through his kendo moves, fully suited up despite the fact that he has no opponent, a situation in which usually, kendo-gi and hakama are considered to be enough.
  • Dorian Gray, on the other hand, is perched on a hurdle, a blue Wedgewood mug of tea in hand, and just observes the sparring warriors with unashamed fascination.
  • Father Pearse Harman, finally, is walking back and forth between the bar and Javert's little church in the woods, getting the Sunday service ready.

Yamato has, after several long, long days in his world, found his way into the corner of the Milliways couch, and ended up sprawled on the sofa on his back, half asleep, one arm thrown over his eyes.

If asked, he is definitely going to say that it's just the heat getting to him, not -- not exhaustion or anything like that. Totally. Totally.

Eden enters with Chirithy (a small, blue-eyed, grey kitten, sharply watching the bar) nestled in his hair and a head of dandelion seeds in his fingers, which he's spinning by the stalk as he meanders over to Bar.

The order he gives to Bar is dizzyingly long, entirely precise, and delivered in a word-a-minute rapid fire barrage, but eventually results in a grotesquely large ice cream sundae, situated in a glass tall enough that it could probably qualify as a large vase.

OOM: A mission goes slightly sideways.

Cassian carefully pushes open the door, one hand pressing on his side as he leans on the door jamb, his jacket zipped up tightly as he realizes this isn't the building lobby. The strip of his shirt that's showing below his jacket is darker than normal and anyone who's aware of blood will smell the bleeding wound on his side.

With a small relieved breath, he stands up, scans the Bar before making his slow way to the counter and asks in Festian, "Could I have a few large bacta patches and something to clean myself up with?"

When they appear along with a note that is an arrow pointing to the infirmary, he turns the note over as he looks around to decide where will be safest to patch himself up.

OOC: Warning in the OOM for violence, drinking, echoes of war and a child who's being watched over but in a hard place. Catch him at the door or counter.

{So Pam stopped by and frightened Eric and once she left, Sookie had to coax him down the stairs to his cubby.

There, he fell asleep and slept like the dead. And then he woke and climbed through the door at the top of the small ladder

The door opens and Eric hoists himself up and onto the floor,
He is dressed in washed out shorts (they're meant to be long, but they stop a little higher than they're supposed to. Awkwardly) and a just as worn t-shirt.
His hair is a bird's nest and he is blinking sleepily and a little dazedly at the scene in front of him.

Why is he back here?

Well, close enough. :) Stella Jaye Floyd arrived earlier tonight. Mom, kidlet and dad all doing fine, so far as anyone's told me. 7 pounds, 13 or 14 ounces (speaker phone made that blurry), and my conversions are rubbish, so... 3 kilos and change?

I need to find a figurine, and by that I mean a proper marble or similar carved one, not a rubbishy plastic one, of a Stellar's jay (I believe that's the name of the bird in question) and present it to her. Not to her folks, although they'll see it. The figurine will be hers.

Leetle not-feathery feathery star baby. :D

The Pasadena Folk Music Society is very pleased to present the US debut of a fine new Celtic group, The Recollective, who are beginning their first American tour here at Caltech on Saturday, July 8 in Beckman Institute Auditorium (Little Beckman) at 8:00 PM.  The band consists of Calum Morrison, (Glascow, Scotland) on vocals, guitar, banjo, tenor guitar, bodhran and Highland bagpipes, Karen Hickey, (County Mayo, Ireland) on fiddle, Michael Coult, (originally from Glossop, close to Manchester, England) on traditional Irish flute and whistles, and Kieran Leonard, (now living in London, originally from County Fermanagh) on drums, percussion, & bodhran.  All of them have previously performed in the United States in other configurations, but they formed The Recollective in the past year after playing together in the Celtic Legends traveling show that has appeared for a million people worldwide over the years.  As Kieran explains, their name, The Recollective, is meant as a double entendre, firstly that they are a group that sings and plays music inspired by the past and secondly, that they are as a 'collective' play in a contemporary and edgy style.  They wanted a name that reflects both the traditional roots and the modern aspects of their music.  Their brand new debut recording is about to be released, and should be available for purchase at this show.  Hear Karen's beautiful fiddle interplay with Michael's flute, along with the perfect understated percusion of Kieran on the medley, Vals Til Mor Og Far/The Midge and Calum's vocal and guitar on Gin I Were a Baron's Heir. Help us welcome this fine band to our side of the pond!    

Tickets for the show are $20 for adults and $5 for Caltech students and children.  You can order them on the phone by calling the Caltech Ticket Office at (626) 395-4652.  Online tickets are available here.  You can avoid the service charge by purchasing tickets at the door on the night of the show or by visiting the Ticket Office in person at the Caltech Ticket Office in their new location at 1200 E. California Boulevard in Pasadena (Southeast corner of Wilson Avenue.)  Their usual hours are 9AM - 4PM, Monday through Friday.

iprotectyou: An animated gif of Baze smiling (smile)
[personal profile] iprotectyou posting in [community profile] ways_back_room
Despite Baze's initial protests, he and Chirrut have erected a sign warning bar patrons in several languages that the sun burns. The sign is located on the border between the lake and the beach.

The languages are as follows, courtesy of Google Translate Bar's help:
Aurebesh (Galactic Basic): Beware of burning from the merciless sun
English: Beware the burn of merciless sun
French: Méfiez-vous de brûler du soleil impitoyable (Beware of burning the ruthless sun)
Russian: Остерегайтесь ожогов от беспощадного солнца (Beware of burns from the merciless sun)
Japanese: 無慈悲な太陽から燃えることに注意してください (Please be aware that it burns from a ruthless sun)
German: Hütet euch vor dem Brennen von der gnadenlosen Sonne (Beware of burning from the merciless sun)

ETA: Maru has kindly provided a more accurate German translation: "Hütet euch for der Glut der gnadenlosen Sonne," which translates via Google as "Beware of the glow of the merciless sun."

My sister's in the hospital having kiddo the second. :) It's early days yet, so say my mother and other sister, but...

EeeeeeeEEEEE! :D

Campfire plans for this weekend are thoroughly scuttled, as we knew they might be. Oh well, this is more important. I'm not going up to visit until everyone's home and settled in, which probably means either next weekend or for part of the weekend of the Fourth. But, oh my gosh! :D

I am going to laugh my butt off if it's a boy. Ultrasounds may be highly accurate, but they are not perfect. I know Jordan had them check twelve times, and whether that's hyperbole or not, I don't know; I wasn't there. My point stands.

:) :) Updates to follow.

Sahaal recently came to the revelation that he can't sit in his room and watch films all day as "cultural research", so he's taken the Friday Happy Hour slot, and is currently behind the bar, setting up some bottles on the racks. He found a chalkboard next to the corkscrews, and he's used some white chalk to write out the specials:

[Millitimed to after Cassidy is released from the cells (threads still in progress)]

"Are there any windows in there?" Cassidy asks one of the waitrats before he enters the kitchen for dishwashing duty. "Cos I can't-- y'know, it'd be a great favor if you could like pull down the shades, see, I'm kinda-- the sunlight, it hurts me eyes and I have a skin condition, y'know, and, like-- yeah, wouldja do that? Oh, that's right nice of you, thanks muchly."

He can't believe he's talking to a rat. But, he's at the end of the universe, so, why the hell not.

Ambling into the kitchen, he casts his gaze around the room, with its shiny, fancy appliances and a pantry that he could probably get lost in. At this point he's just, like, fuck it. Might as well make the time pass. So he rolls his shirt sleeves up past his elbows and sets to washing the stack of dishes already piled in the sink.

Eventually he starts humming and singing softly to himself,

"In Dublin's fair city
Where the girls are so pretty
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone
As she wheeled her wheelbarrow
Through the streets broad and narrow
Crying 'cockles and mussels, alive, alive-oh...'

Is there some bit of canon or plot that you are ignoring as it is a stupid-assed decision?

Bonus question: I recently noticed my profile for a pup was woefully out of date and needed reworking. Post in with your pups and we'll review their profile and offer any suggestions we might have.

Oswin has a plate of cookies. They're actually not bad cookies - chocolate walnut, if we're being precise. And not even burnt.



She has a plate of cookies (she may have accidentally doubled the recipe, but at least it seems that she got the ratios right across the board), and a lemonade, and...


She'll enjoy the summery weather from the booth near the window to the back.

That's... close enough. For now.

Guide enters the Bar today covered in blood and gore and wearing his battle gear. The war with the Alterans is going badly, but he was alive at least, his brother was not so lucky.

Guide stomped through the bar and out into the darkness of the back yard trailing droplets of blood and gore, that the rats scurry around to try and clean.

Sherlock has been very useful lately, and also full of interesting information.

Jim is not liking any of it. Something is definitely afoot. And normally it would be none of his business, except it's Sherlock so it is his business. With Mary Morstan in the picture, and Magnusson coming over the horizon - followed by his assistant, who will be lucky to get out of this alive - Jim is done sitting on the sidelines.

It necessitates doing something he does not want to do. But when has that ever stopped him? So he takes Mycroft's business card one day, and touches it to the handle of the front door. It opens. Jim looks out on the view for a long few moments, then stretches his neck to the side, and closes it again. 

The suit he's wearing is impossible. So he comes back ten minutes later in skinny jeans and basketball trainers, with a zip-up hoodie and dark shadows painted under his eyes. His skin looks whiter than normal, because he's made it so. He doesn't hesitate again. This is a trip that has to be made, so he's making it.

[OOC: First link has NSFW content, and a lot of conversation about various things. Also, angst. Miscommunication. And mutual admissions that there's still something they're rubbish at.]

Coral is settled in a booth, with a big box of plastic beads, which she is painstakingly arranging onto a plastic frame into a pretty picture for the fair. Once she's finished, she'll ask a grown up to iron them for her.

It's best to do this away from little siblings who might try and go grabby hands at it.

I hope that the heat isn't being too difficult for anyone, heat and humidity are awful.

Pam is angry, Baze and others don't help.

Hera and Kanan try to get ready for what might happen next.

Eden tries to improve.

Now what are you loving and finishing. I had a wonderful family visit but I'm glad to be back.
