    Libby got a reaction from kristi in My final 1013 project   
    I don't often visit the Haven these days, but someone started a thread recently about shooting scripts.
    My previous "final" XF project involved collecting all the stuff I had collected digitally over the years and stuffing that into pdf files, one for each season. A very kind Havenite, called philiater, has hosted those on her website. They are huge files, but if anyone's interested in those, here's the link:
    http://www.mitchpileggi.net/The_X-Files/Libby/
    As far as I can remember, those files included typed copies of the main aspects of shooting scripts that I had. But as they were typed copies, they didn't include all the minutiae of the shooting scripts. I didn't have a scanner back then.
    But, prompted by that Haven thread, I have now scanned the twenty 1013 shooting scripts I have here and uploaded them to my Dropbox account:
    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/yqqoh1v6xwh4ofm/AADEMP6uYz1QTytKRuEHLe7-a?dl=0
    There are a couple of MM scripts, as well as HR and TLG, but mostly XF.

    Libby got a reaction from The Old Man in M-TIWWA News - Happy 15th Anniversary to This Is Who We Are!   
    I’ve been mulling over this 15 year thing for a little while. I alternate between “OMG 15 years – seems like yesterday” and “OMG 15 years – seems like half a lifetime”.

    It’s said that time moves differently as one gets older; but I take the optimistic view that being older means treating time as one wishes. And however long 15 years feels like to me, it's the 15 years of quality that really matters.
    So, happy anniversary TIWWA.

    Thank you Graham!

    But five? Only FIVE?!

    Wait a minute. Five is 101 in binary. So I can invite a hundred and one members to my tea party. Much better. (Bit squashed, though.)

    Libby got a reaction from The Old Man in Support for Graham   
    Graham has announced in his status that he's been made redundant from his job.
    Being made redundant isn’t easy. I think it’s about the connotations of the word. But Graham isn’t redundant/not needed, it’s the organisation that’s failed in some way.

    So, can we all show support for Graham, because he’s certainly needed here.

    And maybe donate a dollar or two for the cost of hosting our community here?

    A couple of animal-related pics.
    This one is from a Twitter account. Funny, but not sure if it's true. However, a good reminder that little creatures, either toddlers or pets, can end up in trouble if you're not alert to the multitude of possibilities.

    I used to be owned by cats. I'd like to get another cat, but I know I'd end up with one like this:

    Libby got a reaction from Walkabout in Thread for the Great and the Good who are nameless   
    There are loads of people who are great and good because, even in small ways, they make our lives just that little bit better.
    I went to one of our small local supermarkets today. I would never want to work in retail, because they can get so much abuse from customers, especially the drunks. The young woman on the checkout was lovely, and we had a giggle about how slow the card machine was working, "must be because it's Sunday". Such a tiny little thing but it was just that human connect, if you see what I mean.
    When I developed the rash, and google-diagnosed it as shingles, I phoned my GP practice just after 8 a.m. on the Monday (their busiest day). When I mentioned "shingles", the person on the phone immediately booked me in with one of the practice's nurse-practitioners for 11 a.m. that day. The nurse diagnosed shingles and prescribed meds to reduce the effects, approved the pain-relief schedule that I'd already put myself on, treated me as a sensible individual, and encouraged me to come back if things weren't going well. That's two people who cheerfully looked after me that day.
    The great and the good aren't always the big and the famous.

    Libby got a reaction from The Old Man in Jon Polito (Eddie in Omerta) has died   
    I don't usually follow celebrity news, but I recognised his name in the headline on a news page, and immediately knew who he was. He was so very good as Eddie in Omerta.
    Then I looked at his imdb page:
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0689237/
    He appeared in so many movies/TV shows, which I always think is a sign that he was not only a good actor but also a good guy on set/in real life.
    He was only 65. Apparently, he contracted an infection following melanoma surgery. He's survived by his long-term partner, Darryl Armbruster.

    Examples, should you ever have needed them, of why the English can seem just a little bit odd:
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-4305774/Hilarious-British-situations-caught-camera.html
    I'm currently watching a UK TV programme called "Coast", which is a collection of all the various things that goes on around the coastline of the British Isles, from people to history to geology. This episode had a segment on a jigsaw puzzle competition, which has been going on for years. The winners are whoever manages to put together the most jigsaw puzzle pieces in the time available. It's not easy to describe, but I'll do my best:
    The tables are provided by the organisers, and they're placed on the beach between the low and high water marks. The competitors have to decide when to call it quits, as the tide rolls in and threatens to wash the puzzle pieces away. Some seasoned competitors manage to hold up the floating tables while up to their waists in water, using their skills and knowledge to judge whether it's wise to try to fit in another piece before the next wave hits, or risk losing it all. Totally nuts! But quintessentially funny in that British way.

    OK, pizza for breakfast is standard fare for students. But one of the really great things of getting to that milestone age is the freedom to do what what we [expletive] well like.
    Cake is also good for breakfast. You can trust me on that.
