Peaks! Grit! Bodily Injury!

Yay!  In five minutes I am off to meet Matt and start our weekend to the Peaks!

Ok, granted it'll take 3+ hours to actually drive there (if we're lucky), and we won't actually be climbing that scary scary grit until tomorrow, but yay!  It's been ages since I've climbed outdoors. 

We WERE supposed to go last weekend, but someone (not me!) was too hungover to a) drive, and b) lead climb.  

A bit scared as I caught up with a mate last night who was showing me his lovely grazes and bruises from last weekend.  But it should still be fun.  Outdoors! Camping! (Lazeema - I know you were wishing you were me right now) Climbing!

After all, we're off to Kaly next weekend.  Must get some outdoor practise in!  (Even if Peaks gritstone is completely different to Greek limestone).

So y'all have a fantabulous weekend and think of my grunting and climbing up something like this:

*bites nails*

Have a safe and fun trip!

There will be Oyster Farmer Alex pics when you get back. ;)

You've teased me with some Oyster Farmer Alex, where's the rest?! *taps foot*

I need more money to get all those Alex dvds!

And ooh, I read in imdb that he's in Whiteout. It's a great Rucka graphic novel. Go get it if you hven't already. Altho, Kate Beckinsale - too pretty/lithe for the character of Carrie Stetko.

The caps aren't done yet. Be patient. You will have more Oyster Farmer Alex soon. ;)

Yeah, I saw that on IMDB. Alex playing a bad guy? Yup, I'm there.

Alex playing a bad guy? Yup, I'm there.
Only problem is, Antartica - so no naked!badguy Alex *sobs*

Awwww, you'll just have to get the Feed DVD if you want to see naked!bad guy Alex. ;)

waaaahhhh *cries*

I am on a dvd-buying moratorium at the moment! I'm not allowed to spend any more money on dvds. Having just added about 20 new ones to our shelves, which are rapidly approaching collapse. :-S

Sigh, will add it to my want!list and eye it mournfully. And keep returning to your 'Feed' caps for my naked!bad Alex fix.

Beg! Give the sad, puppy-dog eyes, and say "I need Feed." :-P

My shelves aren't approaching collapse, but they are full. I have no room left for more DVDs, yet I keep buying. It might be time to sell off some crap.

Do you have a DVD burner on your computer? If you do, then I can send you the movie (I ripped it on to my computer to make the caps). Or, you can just watch it on your computer. It's not the same as seeing on a TV, but it's better than nothing ;).

Do you have a DVD burner on your computer?
I do! I do!
I will love you forever if you could rip it for me!


We have this 'need' vs 'want' argument ALL the time. I try and bypass it and buy dvds on the sly and just add them to the shelves. In the hopes that he doesn't remember that we didn't get them on an earlier spree.

But I was busted last week as 20+ made too much of a difference! Must be more sneaky and add one by one next time.

It's already ripped. All I have to do is upload it. ;) But you have to promise me you'll buy it when you're allowed to buy DVDs again. :-P

This is a movie you need. It has naked!bad guy Alex. It is a must-own. Same goes for Oyster Farmer. You might have to order them online. That's what I had to do because I couldn't find them in any stores here. :(
Sep. 12th, 2007 02:41 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah, it is totally on my want!dvd list!

As you'd said before 'Oyster Farmer' is not usually my type of movie either, but it does sound gorgeous. (As is Alex of course! thanks to your screencaps)
Sep. 12th, 2007 02:58 pm (UTC)
I'll work on the Feed uploads tonight. Oyster Farmer is also on the computer, and I can upload that for you another time. ;)

He looked sooooooooooo good in Oyster Farmer. :-D

Yikes! Your idea of a great vacation is like my worst nightmare. haha.

Anyway, HAVE. FUN. HUN.

Be safe.

And don't get hurt :)
Sep. 10th, 2007 10:04 am (UTC)

Bit scratched up! But not hurt!

Well, you have the shoes I'm jealous of, I have to pasttime you shudder at!

Hmm, I somehow think you came out better in that exchange.

Have a great time! BE SAFE :)
Sep. 10th, 2007 10:08 am (UTC)

I'm back safe! A bit scratched up, knees banged up and bruised, and sore, but good!

It was great fun. Long drive (4 hrs each way) but worth it. More time needed next time to see some of the sights.

Like Chatsworth (think Pride & Prejudice!). Instead of me saying 'Oooh Chatsworth' every time we passed a signpost, and Matt just flicking a dismissive glance over at me.
