While I pondered, weak and weary

Random things:

This blog is currently 477th in the Wikio Rankings for general UK blogs. (Er, that list only goes up to 200, but I have been Reliably Informed.) W00t? I suspect this is miss_s_b's fault for linking to me, so thank you, I think! Lookee, a badge:

Wikio - Top Blogs

I *just* failed to buy the Wil Wheaton-designed shirt on shirt.woot today before it sold out, so will have to buy it tomorrow for $5 more. Boo. I did buy a very shiny Nevermore raven shirt, though:



Click to see detail. I...have no words for how awesome that is. Yay. Still on t-shirts, I found the Sheldon Shirts site, where you can buy most of the t-shirts that Sheldon wears on The Big Bang Theory.

Play have the Rocky Horror/ Shock Treatment Lips Boxset for £13, RRP £70. I'm trying to persuade myself that I really don't need it.

I'm off work with irritatingly non-specific illness today (sore neck, weird head-pressure thing, no appetite *at all*) and couldn't get a doctor's appointment due to them being utterly crap, so will probably be off tomorrow too. My plans involve more BBT, and BSG season 2. Hurray!

Edit: And we were being very scathing at work yesterday about the idea of Lenny Henry playing Othello, so it's interesting to see that he's mainly getting good reviews. The Telegraph one in particular adores him, despite not being a fan at all, and having been cynical about the casting.

Apparently, if you go here, you can get them the day after they went up, although I'm not sure about how official it is. And Wil's will probably get on to the Day Of Reckoning chart too, which is official and means it'll stay in print till it drops off the chart.

Ahh, then I don't feel bad that they just told me it is too late to redirect my order to Maclean. (You'd have had to wear it as a nightshirt, rather than a shirt, though, as I'd ordered a 3XL).

Ha, enormous t-shirt! Nah, should be able to pick up a normal one, hopefully :)

Y'know the annoying thing about all the coverage Lenny's getting? The theatre company he's with is based just up the road from us, and we'd like to go to their stuff anyway.

Odds of getting a ticket, at all? Minimal. Even if one becomes available, affordability=none.

I've always known he could act, I've seen him in stuff before, and he did go off to do training and similar. So I don't find it at all surprising, and it's a good company.

Re Wikio, You also get links coming in from LibCon, Who Daily, me (when I can be arsed) and others. IIRC, Who Daily is fairly high up, and LibCon is top three. It's a nice little gadget, and it ought to encourage more interlinking from non "top" blogs, which is good. One of the "drawbacks" of LJ is the very discursive nature of the comments box, a lot of other blog platforms would encourage long comments (like this) to be made on your own blog, with a linkback in the comments. We tend to just reply, so we don't get all the interlinking, but we do get much better quality discussions.

I like our way, but it does mean we're not as noticeable at times, not sure if that's good or bad overall.

Bah. It's always annoying when people keep going on and on about something you want to go to, but can't! I don't think I've seen him in anything except bad sitcoms, and I don't find his comedy funny, so...

And ah. I read Wikio's blurb about how they worked, but didn't really grok that that meant commenty blogs are less likely to be featured - I still like them better, though!

Ah, no, blogs with lots of comments still do well (politicalbetting comment threads are a horror to behold), it's LJ that sorta suffers.

Partially as a lot of the time posts are f-locked, so great posts are just hidden by default, but even then we have massive threaded conversations in one post, but rarely if ever go back to our own journals and link to that post at all.

I might get into the habit of linking to substantive conversations actually, given people seem to like reading what I write (loons), letting them know where I'm doing it might make sense, given it's rarely at my own place at the moment.

I *LOVE* the Sheldon Shirts site. Thanks for that! :)

Great, innit? Although a bit disappointing that most of his shirts are from Urban Outfitters, since I always think of that as super-trendy (and way too expensive)!
