4/24/11 01:54 pm - Happy Zombie Jesus Day! If you can sit through all my ramblings, you get podfic at the end, I swear.
I was going to do a post squeeing about yesterday's Doctor Who, but then I realized that I basically got all my squee out with moonlingmaid and queelez yesterday when they came over to watch the episode with me (Graham & I definitely were dressed up as Eleven & River, it was pretty sweet). So I shall summarize: IT WAS AWESOME. And very Moffat-y. The end.
Have some thoughts about Easter, instead.
So, unlike, say, Valentine's Day (BOO) or Halloween (YAY), I actually have no strong feelings on Easter. My feelings about it basically consist of:
Growing up in an Atheistic Jewish household, the only actual Easter tradition we had was that my dad would take me and my sister to Camp Snoopy. Sometimes they had an "egg hunt trail" thing there where we would get candy. I would go on the Ripsaw way too many times, my tiny sister would go on the Paul Bunyon Log Ride and get a slightly manic grin to go with her soaking clothes. It was fun.
And it took child!me an embarrassingly long time to realize that Easter was Actually A Thing, and not just like, another federal holiday like Veteran's Day, which Had A Name but did not actually affect my daily routines, aside from maybe a few people acknowledging it, since going to Camp Snoopy wasn't exactly exclusive to Easter.
SO! This means that nowadays, I often forget that Easter = other people cannot hang out, because they have actual Family Traditions, and I can't actually run errands or anything, since pretty much everywhere is CLOSED. Whoops.
After I woke up today, when I saw my roommate (who I met because he is the son of my mom's friend from our religious congregation), this was our conversation:
ME: (mostly sarcastically) "*throws arms up* Happy Zombie Jesus Day!"
ME: "Happy Zombie Jesus Day? It's Easter?"
HIM: "Oh. Really? Shows how disconnected I am from Christianity."
ME: "...I only really know because I have work off."
Oh, us Jewish Atheists. Haha.
Okay, enough about Bess's Bemusement Re: Easter. HAVE SOME PODFIC ABOUT JOHN AND RODNEY BEING ADORABLE WITH SMALL CHILDREN!

*NOTE--THIS IS AN ANTHOLOGY OF THE WHOLE VERSE, NOT JUST THE ONE DRABBLE
When I first found the tag for flyakate's Elementary!verse in the Audiofic Archive, I was highly intrigued. "Oooh, this one looks fun," I thought. So I went looking for the compiled podbook of the 'Verse. Then I realized there WASN'T one, so I just went, "no big, I'll just make one". Except then, when I went to her journal to get the correct order of the stories, I realized that one drabble had not been podficced! And completist that I am, I took it upon myself to podfic that drabble. FOR THE GOOD OF THE ANTHOLOGY! XD
Big thanks to winkingstar and rhea314 for allowing me to include their wonderful podfics (which make up the vast majority of the 'verse!) in the anthology. They are super great, and I recommend you snag the anthology just for their sake.
I decided to use this one for my podfic_bingo square "Read a Fic Cold", so I deliberately didn't read the drabble before I podficced it. It *is* edited to take out verbal stumbles, but I previously had not read the fic at all before I opened Audacity to record it. So...yeah, take that as you will.
Re: the cover, I am totally used to Joe/John's Hair being My Mortal Enemy (and it was, indeed, PARTICULARLY bad on this one), but David/Rodney's hair for this one was unexpectedly persnickety! I keep telling myself to do cover designs that *don't* involve doing cut-outs...and then I end up doing them anyway. *facepalm* Whoops.
I think that's it. Enjoy John+Rodney being overheated, and HAPPY ZOMBIE JESUS DAY! :)
