Zachary Quinto is gay

There are some times when a man comes out as a homosexual and the women of the world are sad, because it ruins whatever fantasy they had with one day ending up with him (see the Sean Maher response). But today an actor has 'come out' to the world and the opposite reaction occured: women kind breathed a sigh of relief. 
This is because Zachary Quinto, fine actor that he is, is freaking terrifying. Don't believe me? Look here



You might think he's sexy or whatever, but whenever I see that face I plan on running for the hills for fear that he's going to kill me. He plays creepy so well that it's kind of hard for me to see him any other way. So when he came out, I was grateful that I no longer have to have the nightmares of Quinto/Sylar attacking me. Men, you can have him.
Just to be clear, I'm having a bit of a joke. Quinto is such a great actor that his 'Heroes' character scared me so much that I have trouble watching Star Trek 2009. And I'm not saying that I'm scared of him because he's gay or that I'm scared of gay people in general, because I'll have you know that I was scared of him well before I knew he was homosexual thankyouverymuch.
So Zachary Quinto; I don't care that you're gay. You're a great actor anyway and don't let anyone tell you other wise. And maybe you'd look less creepy if you smiled. 



Ah... maybe not.

More Once Upon a Time Goodies

We're just about a week away from the glorious first episode of Once Upon a Time, and we have been given some great new images from ABC. These are some of the best promo shots I've seen in a while, so sit back and enjoy:


BAMF
 I have more but the uploader isn't working so I'll have to add them later. The photos obviously don't belong to me and are the work of the great artist who created them. I found some of them on the wonderful site http://once-storybrooke.net/ which has a lot of cool news about the show. 

Enjoy, Kathy

Horror

I don't normally post two days in a row unless it is a special occassion and, well, I count this as special:
Koala Shot In Every Limb
Serious people? Someone SHOT a Koala in every limb. This means that the shooter just didn't shoot at it once to scare it away but they kept on shooting even when the Koala was leaving.
World, today you suck.

Cookies

The other day I went to a showcase at my sisters univeristy and I was given a free copy of a Bella. It's an interesting magazine along the lines of Dolly but Bella has less of an emphasis on gossip. Aimed at young women and it has a lot of interesting articles about being yourself and planning for the future. I found it a really great read, especially the page where they had a recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies. 
Since I have a lot of peanut butter and the rest of the ingredients, I decided to give it a go. It was written by Linda Moes.


The first thing was to grab the ingredients and put them all in a bowl together. 
1 cup of peanut butter
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of cinamin
1 egg


Then you mix them all together and then lay them out onto a baking tray.
Bake them for 8-10 minutes at 180 and you're done!
Yummo
This was a really great treat that I'm sure isn't very healthy. It was easy and quick to make so if you want to give them a try you should, and let me know how they went. I'm off to eat more cookies.

Top Female Characters on TV #5


I don't own this image (but I wish I did!)

 I can't believe how long it's been since I've added one of these! I bet you're all going crazy wondering who my top 5 are (or no one is actually reading my blog because no one comments). But anyway I'm going to continue with my list here with the Awesome Christina Yang (Sandra Oh) from Grey's Anatomy.
I don’t like a lot of people to know that I watch Grey’s Anatomy, mostly because the storylines aren’t as in depth or thought provoking as the other series that I watch, but watch it I do, and mostly for Christina. Christina is my favourite character and the main reason why I watch the show. Her character growth every season always amazes me, yet it never seems fake. As much as she’s grown and changed, she is still true to her core self. There are things about her that she will never change for anybody no matter how much they try to make her.
Like every other character on my list, she is strong (are you sensing a pattern here?), but there are times when she has changed for the better. For her love of Burke Christina agreed to a big ridiculous wedding that she never wanted. She lied for him and put her own career on the line for him earlier on in the series, but it was the wedding that really displayed her affection for him. To make matters worse, Burke didn’t realise how much she had changed for him until the last moment, and then decided to leave. Not good for someone who already had difficulties with emotion. Nonetheless, in the later seasons Christina has met and married Owen, who seems to have the unique ability to see through her crap and know when she’s putting up a front and when she’s being honest. I can’t wait to see what they do with her next.
Christina Yang got six votes on my Favourite Female Character on TV poll on FaceBook.  
Does anyone else like Christina? Should she be lower or higher on my list?

Queensland Drivers


For my international readers, you can take five on this one, because this post is mostly aimed at Queenslanders. It’s a good idea that everyone brush up on their road rules from time to time so you can stick around and see how the rules differ from country to country.

Okay, Queenslanders listen up: you don’t know how to drive on a roundabout. I lived in New South Wales for the majority of my life and didn’t become a Queenslander until almost a year ago now but I have lived near the border of the two states forever and I have driven in and been driven in both of them. I didn’t really notice the difference in driving between the two until recently and now it has become clear to me that Queenslanders don’t know how to drive at roundabouts. Maybe you aren’t taught this in your lessons or maybe you just don’t care but it’s getting very dangerous out there. I have a friend who was struck from behind on a roundabout and I almost got side swiped the other day. Driving is dangerous enough without people who don’t know or who don’t follow the rules. So here they are:

When you’re on a roundabout-Indicate!

This applies to whatever you’re doing no matter what you’re doing. If you’re turning left then you indicate left. If you’re turning right then you indicate right. If you’re doing straight then you indicate left when you are in the final approach. It’s really not that hard, and you can’t get in trouble for over-indicating.

Also, don’t assume that the other drivers know what you’re thinking. Sure, technology has come a long way, but we still don’t have an app that will let us know that the person without their blinker on is turning.



See this picture? Car B doesn’t know if they can turn if A doesn’t have their indicator on. Without signalling it seems that A is going straight, so B has to wait. Imagine if this happens three times in a row on a busy day with a long line of cars behind you. When car four enters the roundabout without their blinker you probably think that they are going to turn too, but if you pull out too quickly you could get hit by A who is actually going straight.

We have rules for a reason folks. And no, the reason isn’t so that police can fine you and get money, it’s so that everyone is safe. And I don’t feel safe driving on roundabouts at the moment.

Please forward this blog to everyone you know who is a driver no matter what state they are in and urge them to be smarter when they are driving. It’s not just their life in their hands and I would hate it if I were killed by some idiot who refused to indicate on a roundabout.
