Have been writing - which is lovely - mostly due to a wicked case of insomnia last night - which was not. Still, it's nice to have the words flowing again, if still a bit haltingly (just minifills so far).

University Challenge final is tomorrow night. My beloved UCL went out in the semifinals and I lost my favourite player, UCL (Jamie) Karran, he of the massive hair and hilarious answers. :( Oh, Karran, I shall miss you.



The final is going to be Manchester, my second favourites, and one of the Cambridge colleges. Manchester's captain is (Tristan) Burke, who's hilarious in a completely different way from Karran. A lot of people hate him, but I think he's awesome, in an arrogant annoying Christopher-Bryant kind of way. xD And come on, how can you not love someone who recited "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day" to Paxman? ("First-round flirtation", declared one of Burke's teammates.)


Of course I am now shipping Burke and Karran. xD This isn't out of nowhere - they did play a match against each other back in an earlier round (Karran & co won), and they seem to be friends (or at least they talk to each other on Twitter, and Karran wants Manchester to beat Cambridge). And Karran is canon gay - I don't know about Burke.

Still, this is completely a fandom of one. xDDD

Anyway, I need to run to the shop before it closes, so I'll stop here.

Or rather, I don't NEED to, but I want Pepsi Max and chocolate. xD

Love you all.

EDIT: Ahahaha, I have found a video of UCL Karran! Not from University Challenge, though, from another of my favourite quiz shows, Pointless (which he was apparently on last year).


I love you, Jamie Karran.
