(no subject)

This is an Angel spoiler so minuscule that only absolute commitment to protocol makes me hide it behind a cut.

Meanwhile, consider me to be making that noise the bully in the Simpsons makes.
Michael Howard, haw! haw!
The Conservatives have chosen, of their own free will, to be led by a man who reminds everybody of why we voted them out of office in the first place. In my Liberty days, I used to start each year with predicting reactionary Michael Howard measures and each year people would say I was paranoid and each year he would do most of them. Now, it is true that we ended up with a backlog of things too outrageous for Howard, and it is also true that Jack Straw and David Blunkett have done, or tried to do, most of them. Somehow, though, Howard's peculiar brand of lawyer's untruth, sanctimoniousness and arrogance annoy me still in a way that even the creepy homophobe Blunkett doesn't.
It is honestly not his fault that his father came from Transylvania, but it is still jolly funny that the British politician most often accused of looking like Dracula actually has that background.
So, today to the Comics thingy to meet up with Wendy and dolores and faithkitsune76 and Adi and Alex and various others like the Knockabout crowd and Jonathan and so on. David did the whole 'what's the difference between a heterosexual man and a bisexual? about eight pints' joke, and I asked what the lesbian version was and Selena said 'three days serious listening' which wasn't bad off the cuff.
We bitched about the fact that 'The Bill' has killed off the current lesbian character, while squeeing over the moment when closeted butch Gina Gold walked over and patted the dead Juliet's hair. We also did the Cathy Bradford best soap psychopath ever! fannish moment and tried to work out if the current storyline is her nemesis or whether she will get away with it again.
I also came up with my very silly Angel S.5 speculation.

If I am a bit quiet and subdued and not posting, it is because my father is very ill and I expect to get summoned back to Cardiff at any moment. I went down on Monday and things were not good. I am not going to say any more about this at this point.
