Oh my God.

Remember Sgt Markham?

Well, before he became a good, dead space Marine, he was in a show called Casualty - way, way back in about 1997 - playing the boyfriend of gay nurse Sam Colloby.

Now, thirteen years later, he's back in the role of Canadian George, the Locum on the spin-off series, Holby City.

Julie and I have always loved Joe's adorable gayface. Because it's an adorable, gay face, of course. But there is a long-standing joke about how he simply cannot kiss girls. He always looks awkward and squicked. Even when playing Catherine Cookson's hot bot in A Dinner of Herbs.

But today? Oh, today! Today on Holby he felt up a male nurse and apparently admits that he's bi next week.

I'm fairly sure that our shrieks of squee could be heard in Bristol.

This makes me so deliriously happy. I wub you, awkward!Joe. I wish our website hadn't been lost when the harddrives died...

Catch me if you can...

Well, bugger me sideways.

The video is actually better than the song! This is both shocking (because, y'know: track record=not good) and not (because, y'know: I fucking loathe that track).

I felt that old rush of love I used to feel a few years ago, and slightly fangirly in a way I haven't since before Hurley broke the fourth wall and started trying to get me to introduce him to people I've known for ages. :|

Patrick, who shall henceforth be known as the Bird Man of Boatcatraz, is precious. We knew this, I understand, but he has made sure that we are aware that he's still on his game. Also: still ageing backwards. By the time the next album comes out, the fourteen year olds asking him to marry them are going to be going on the paedo register.

But. But. The giggle - the genuine giggle that you couldn't have scripted, you guys! So precious! Patrick Stump will always over produce your record SAVE THE DAY. For serious.

Okay. All excited out, now, need to lie down. Too old for this shit.

We just received an amazing piece of news direct from the horse's mouth. We think it's the first time it's been said publicly and we're blown away. We don't want to spoil the surprise though so we'll just brag when it breaks. Hahahahaha.

Happiest thing ever.

LOOK AT HIS STUPID LITTLE FACE, U GUISE! LOOK! *flails* I love this kid so much, even if he is kind of awkwardly creepy in person.

I need more Four Year Strong icons.

Yesterday was amazing.

Julie and I got to Hammersmith around noon, with cakes for the boys and a pair of pink panties for Patrick. We queued for a bit and hung out with some other fans until it was spotted - far beyond at the bus stop - that a tour bus had pulled up.

Some people ran up to check things out, and then I spotted Andy, so we ran up to join them. We saw Patrick (who was very cheery) and Joe and then had to wait for ages for Pete.

When he finally crawled out of the bus a bit later someone asked him if we could have a picture, and he kind of jokingly croaked, "But it's so early!" and was ushered inside. Chris took a picture anyway. It's hilarious. He also then took a picture of me imitating Pete in the picture, and you can see the image in the camera phone, and it's... scary. I only have a hard copy (we went to a Kodak kiosk) and Jason has my scanner, so I can't post it yet.

We waited around for hours and hours - which was actually really funny because we met a nice bunch of people - and passed the cakes on to Korean Tom Cruise or whatever people call him. He didn't pass them on, which we knew, because Charlie said he hadn't seen them (we'd been to Soho to specifically get vegan cakes as well, dammit!). He did want shoes, though, so we pointed him in the direction of the shopping centre and off he trundled.

He was a bit gruff and down-played the polite, "I just wanted to say I think you're awesome after what you did at New Mexico" speech. But I think he was quietly pleased. He was nicer to me after that.

The boys came back out again later (they'd been doing an interview) but by that time the queue was pretty big and approaching the doors we were hanging out at, so they were rushed off to a TV studio, with barely time to say hi - although Patrick tried valiantly and sat in his car waving at us all. Pete and Joe just hid in their hoodies... Joe and Andy were actually in a second car, which was odd. Pete and Patrick were in a people carrier thing together.

The show itself was awesome. The Palais is such a beautiful venue - all balconies and bars on several levels. It's so sad that they're knocking it down...

The boys played some brilliant songs - Golden with just Patrick and a guitar, plus Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy and Growing Up. If they played the Music and the Misery, as they'd previously said they would, I blacked out for that one...

Arms Race was excellent - it had a really good vibe and a lot of people were singing the 'Also Into Cats' line. Dance, Dance was one of my favourites - although by this stage I was at the side, rather than down the front, because my rucksack had ripped and I was in danger of losing all my stuff. Dirty did the dance, which was pretty cool - I watched it from behind!

At some point early in the show I threw the fabled pink and blue panties on stage and by some miracle they landed right in front of Patrick, their intended recipient. He did a double take, looked vaguely shocked, and then pouted at the crowd as if to say, "Ooooh, you're so BAD!". That was the best moment of my life for a while. Apparently, according to another boardie, Charlie picked them up and tried to give them to Jeanae, and eventually Dirty took them and sniffed them. *cackles* I can't imagine that guy being someone's daddy.

After the show we went back outside and hung by the door again, meeting some other fans from across the UK - and finally, after a very long time talking to the guitarist from The Pink Spiders, the support band who stole the cakes we bought, Charlie appeared and said, "So do you all want autographs, or what?"

Personally, I wanted to pick up Patrick and run, but I thought I'd better not tell him that, so we said 'yes' and were ordered to line up in his usual manner. He wouldn't tell us who was coming out, but everyone was SO FUCKING PLEASED (seriously) that it was Patrick. It's as if, aside from being the second most popular member (probably the most popular full-stop with guys), he's also the most 'value', because he's always pretty up beat and dorky - and seems to enjoy meeting people.

I got him to sign my Infinity on High armband (which meant he had to hold my hand - haha!) and asked if he liked the pants. He said, "I saw them and was like, WHAT THE FUCK?". I explained about the Kerrang! thing and that I thought it would be funny, and he giggled. Then I asked for a hug, and he obliged, and I told him he was lovely, and he was all coy and said, "D'aww... thanks." It was possibly one of the happiest moments of my life.

He actually seemed to want to stay and talk to people, but Charlie bundled him on the bus... He turned back and kept waving at everybody... I really fucking love that kid. ♥ He's so tiny, tiny, TINY and beautiful. ♥

And then, today, I recorded the soundbite for the HIT40 on CapitalFM. They posted a request for a boardie to record a short intro thing saying why we should buy the single (I bought five, today - although I made Julie take two to the till, so they would count in the rankings for the chart). Arms Race already made #6 in the UK chart on downloads alone - with the extra sales from hardcopy purchases, we could easily be looking at a number one. I will be so fucking proud if they get that. The soundbite should be used tomorrow and possibly over the next few weeks. Famous for fifteen seconds.

Oh yeah, and Tom, the guy from CapitalFM, asked if he could keep my number to use me as a Fall Out Boy Fan Correspondant. o_O

That would be so awesome.

Oh! And for those who care, I SAW NOEL FIELDING in Virgin. I do PWN.

God. Oh my god. More coherent update tomorrow. But, essentially, we have a little chat about the pants I threw on stage and I got a hug and told him he was lovely and he said, "D'aww... thanks..."

Charlie is sweet, but I understand why people get the wrong idea about him being an arsehole. He's just doing his job. We fans must seem pretty obnoxious to him...

Anyway. It was awesome and hilarious and, oh yeah, I HUGGED PATRICK STUMP!!1!!!!!twelve

*Yeah, more so.

I got my new tattoo today!

Yeah, it's blurry and my arm looks fat and inflamed, but fuck that.

My new tattooist is really nice. Her name it Lucy and she works at Into You in Clerkenwell - I really recommend her. She has a very steady hand and is just generally cool. She seemed to Know Of the tattooist who did my maple leaf as well. She sounded a bit dubious.

I'm thinking about getting the same effect on the left elbow with hearts. Hearts & Stars!

I might also get her to do a really large, solid red star that wraps around my wrist and some scattered ones around it like on my elbow, over my maple leaf, and then getting her to re-do the maple leaf properly on the other wrist.

I am so addicted to tattoos.

I keep thinking of things I want - but I'm only getting them on places that won't be distorted as I lose weight. I kind of want a red silhouette of a bat (my life-long favourite animal - not a Clandestine reference, thanks) about four inches across on the back of my shoulders, in the middle.

That would be awesome.

But yeah. My new tattoo owns.

And none of you know the seekrit references.

New t-shirt!

I just bought it from the Pegasus 2 Spreadshirt Shop created by [ profile] neth_dugan.

It is cute and awesome and combines the names of my two favourite characters (I've been referring to them jointly as 'Stackham' for years, now - YEARS?! Have I really been into this years?!). I have tags for my Marpat shirt with 'STACKHAM' on them. Those shall be attached before I go.

I've decided that my signed items from Pegasus 2 are going to be auctioned on eBay and the proceeds will go to the Pine Ridge funds. I'm going to buy pictures with the guys which will be signed anyway, and the ones from past cons are just sitting in a folder anyway. And it will help raise awareness. I'm going to take little print-outs for the guests and do my best to explain the situation as I can in 30 seconds.

Who knows? It might strike a chord with someone... To have someone in a cult-like fandom of this nature championing something would be awesome.

I might also see about holding a screening of the documentary - possibly at Treadwell's if I can work out a way to get a projector or TV down there. We'll see...

I got a present in the post, today! It's a book called Powder Puff Derby, and it's about female pilots, but there was no name or card so I don't know who sent it! O_O

[ profile] sassygirl - was it you?! You're the only person I can think of who asked for my address, recently...

Whoever it was, thank you!! It's awesome - very me. ♥

Two things: seeing as every Dogma comm out there is rife with Kevin Smith Worship I have created [ profile] thegregori for people who just like Dogma. Doesn't mean you can't mention Kevin Smith, but you won't die in a pit of 37s.

Also, I bring you this (I didn't fix it):

What Dogma character are you?

Take this quiz!
rosiedoes: (Dogma: Angels)
Did I mention I have a new fandom? *points to icon*

Whoever thought I'd think Affleck was anything other than a complete prick?

I have to thank Helen, Luke and Elise for putting up with my OMGANGELSANDSARCASMANDGAYJOKES hysteria, because it was probably horrifying. Especially for Luke, who is rapidly receiving an education in Fangirls in Action, thanks to season three of Stargate: Atlantis.

I cannot bring myself to shriek until I've seen it again. Which I will have to do oh so soon.

I'll be shopping in Virgin on Saturday I think.
