Meme (Quotes Kind!)  
Taken from aelfgyfu_mead:

Go to Wikiquote.
* Load a random page.
* Pick the third quote.
* That's the tagline on the movie poster about your life.


I kid you not, this is what came up.


Sherry...a silly, sickly compound, the use of which will transform a nation, however bold and warlike by nature, into a race of sketchers, scribblers, and punsters, in fact into what Englishmen are at the present day.  - George Burrow

I like how the quote includes drinking, scribbling, and Englishmen. Three of my favorite things!

Now back to writing...

You're writing!? *high-pitched squeak* My goodness, this really is such a fitting quote. You are like an alcoholic beverage! Reducing savagery in people to giddiness and art! Well done. :)

I said I'd be watching Poirot and Merlin, but I've again failed. I made it through ten minutes of Poirot, then a phone call happened and I'm now too tired to finish it tonight. WHYYYYYYY!? *flails about* I did enjoy those ten minutes, though!

I've got about half of it done. Hopefully I can finish it up after I write a paper. BLARGH.

I did enjoy those ten minutes, though!

Ten minutes should have been sufficient for the whole "THIS MAN IS DEAD HERE ARE THE SUSPECTS" narrative.

Good luck with the paper! I hope it's done (or at least near done) by now! Sleep is a glorious thing.

Speaking of...I should be doing that now. I will be doing that soon. I hope. I seem particularly insomniatic tonight.

And hee! Yes, I did pick up on that narrative. Strange, for it was SO subtle!! XD

I think you mean aelfgyfu_mead; aelfgyfu is someone I don't know, but she calls herself "Elfa" and hasn't done the meme!

That's a great quotation.

I hope you feel terrible for causing the downfall of British civilization. That's at least ten minutes in the corner.
