« Previous: bob: as seen on TV Next: hooray, evil! »

and in other news

Not so many updates these days. Work and night school are eating my head.

Bob Brier's Mummy Detective: Crypt of the Medici special aired on TLC last Sunday. Pretty impressive stuff, and a happy flashback to when I did Study Abroad in Florence (here's Kitty every five minutes: "I went there!"). Dr. Bob's still sporting the same blue shirt/khakis/sneakers ensemble as in The Great Egyptians. I learned a bit about analyzing skeletons and about the Medici (Cosimo's establishing a public library was news to me), though I would have liked to have seen more about the overall project. Maybe there's a book coming out of it at some point.

Here is a write-up about the show from Archaeology magazine, if you're interested.

In other news, here's what you've demanded
The searches that bring people to this blog ask, and Kitty provides!

naked snape award
Read about the Naked Snape Award and how to get one for your own crazy self here.

randall and hopkirk slash recs
You want a site like this archive, although I can't offer any recs. Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) not so slashtastic in my eyes, and a lot of the fanfic suffers the usual setbacks you get when one of the main characters is insubstantial: the stories end up full of unrequited moping or they're flashback material ("Back in high school, before Project Quantum Leap ever started, a young Sam and Al ...").

fanfic slash hellboy
Damn! That's a new one. But you can find some over at The Wonderful World of MakeBelieve Archive.

He's over on the Sanrio website. I don't want to know why his favorite saying is "a small thing is a good thing."

60 stewardess uniforms
Your best bet is to check out the freaking enormous Stewardess Uniform Collection. I'm speechless.

You're on your own for this one.

The "I wish I'd thought of that" department
And then there's Hellblazer: Hogwarts, a Hellblazer/Harry Potter crossover in which John Constantine becomes the new Defense of the Dark Arts instructor at Hogwarts. Damn, I wish I'd thought of that!

I'm not much of a fanfic person (I tend to look at most fanfiction either with bemusement or outright horror), but Hellblazer: Hogwarts *is* a pretty good idea. John could show that Malfoy rat a thing or two about being nasty!

I still say nothing tops Treebeard/Whomping Willow, which is Archie's pairing. In a way. Meep! :)

Damn, kitty, you've found a fanfic I'll actually read!

The Hellblazer/Harry Potter crossover, not the Hellboy slash.

I still say nothing tops Treebeard/Whomping Willow
I was all "that wacky ellen, ha ha" when I read this. And then I was skimming over Deleterius and found a link to a story called "Treebeard’s Birthday Surprise."

"…hhhhrrrooooomm…who’s your…barrrruummmm.. daddy!" came the voice of treebeard through the forest.
