Welcome to my Dreamwidth journal!

I started this so that I could read friends' entries on DW. Dec 5, 2013, I most recently imported my LJ entries so that I have a backup in case anything should go haywire at LJ. Livejournal is still my main journal, however; I'm aelfgyfu_mead over there as well.

Happy belated Thanksgiving to all those who celebrated it yesterday! May you have leftovers only as long as you want them, and much to be grateful for another year.

We had an excellent meal, cooked by Brilliant Husband, and a lovely quiet day at home. We have more of the same today!

I hope it's kosher to post a copy of a publicly posted picture. The CWRU Robotics Club (CWRUbotics) had this float in their university's homecoming parade this week; it's available to all on Facebook, but if you don't have FB, FB will want you to sign up for an account before you can see it.

I originally wrote: And all you fellow Stargate fans should enjoy this photo, because even though SG-1 ended their run eight years ago, college students are still watching:

CWRU Stargate

Daughter insists that it's Back to the Future, and certainly the font on the side of the float is, and I'm sure she's right about the silver car on the lower level being a DeLorean. But the car in BTTF just disappears; it doesn't open a wormhole! Brilliant Husband thinks the upper part is a wormhole with a MALP. It doesn't look like a normal MALP (Google Image results for Stargate MALP), and there aren't any symbols on the black circle. But I still think it's a Stargate! What do you think?

Here's a link to their Facebook page where the photo appeared yesterday.

Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] sg_fignewton, champion of SG-1 gen fandom! You probably won't see this until after (if you see it at all), but I hope you've had a good birthday!

Y'all know about my toilet obsession, right? I bet not many people have an LJ tag "bathrooms"! That includes showers, bathtubs, and sinks, but really, toilets are my top priority. Always know where your toilet is.

There's a little piece on Medievalists.Net: Public Toilets in the Middle Ages. It's short and only covers late medieval England, but it's reassuring to see others worrying about toilets. It matches up nicely with the details of public toilets found in Bruce Holsinger's Invention of Fire (about which I wrote briefly here).

I still wouldn't want to live in the Middle Ages, but at least I know later medieval England would have public toilets waiting for me.

I heard about that author suggesting that Idris Elba was "too street" to play Bond. (The author has apologized.)

I was thinking, "Wasn't Sean Connery pretty street when he got the role as Bond?", so naturally I went to IMDb. It's a big of a mixed bag: Connery was doing some Shakespeare in the 50s but also something called "The Boy with the Meat Axe" on Armchair Theatre.

And then I found Hell Drivers. Seriously? It sounds pretty run-of-the-mill, but look at the cast!
Stanley Baker: Mr. Rochester from the 1956 Jane Eyre
Herbert Lom: Dreyfus from the Pink Panther movies (and a whole lot of other roles in other things)
Patrick McGoohan!
William Hartnell!
Jill Ireland
David McCallum!
Sean Connery!

It looks like a fan girl's paradise! Has anyone seen this?

(For that matter: has anyone seen "The Boy with the Meat Axe"?)
