x_los: (On A Ship)
Spent today mostly rereading/editing episode one, narrowly avoiding a Racist Moment because I didn't know enough about a character's black hair. Worked a dropped joke back in, made final corrections, made pronunciation notes with the help of a documentary and someone with a UK accent, so I could 'transliterate' to RP.

* Showed house a final time, and at last secured a new tenant!
* Looked over bank statement, marked discrepancies, and reminded everyone to pay me council tax.
* Called Tamara's employers and gave her a reference.
* TRIED to chase a company for more info about a position, but to no avail. Finally just emailed the parent company that's bought out their UK division. Maybe that will do something. :/
* Cleaned up emails.
* Made plans to go with Jon to the Victoriana/Sentimentality lecture Thursday night (possibly valuable for PhD in September), and
* researched SH's MASSIVE new booklist, identifying the sequels and the things I'm interested in. Wrote Abigail to that effect.
* Did a fair amount of cleaning/related house chores.

Marvel Adventures Presents... The Avengers! in "Frog-napped!": "“My friends,” Thor says, addressing the Avengers assembled in Tony’s suite, a row of dogs, pigs, bears, two people, and a few whatevers standing behind him, “I’m afraid that I am the bearer sad tidings.”

He pauses dramatically before continuing, because the God of Thunder is nothing if not dramatic.

“My friends,” he says, “Kermit the Frog has disappeared.”"

Don't look too closely at the picture of Fury carrying baby!Loki and you will probs be fine.: "Unluckily Tony's reaction to babies coming towards him was to run away really fast and call a lawyer."--very, very true.
