Oot!

Not pleased with the results of the election. Every frickin' thing I voted for failed yesterday. Ohio now has an ammendment to our constitution which reduces the rights of Ohioans. Ohio now has 4 new Supreme Court Justices - three of whom don't give a rat's ass about Ohio's schools. (When I said "every frickin' thing" I was exaggerating a little. The people who ran unopposed that I voted for all got their positions. At least one of the 4 Justices that I voted for was unopposed.) And of course you know the results of the Big Daddy of elections.

So what does Trina do in times like these? Watches Sylv! Last night I watched "Oot," the episode of Still Game which guest-starred Sylvester McCoy as Archie, a man who's been in his apartment since 1966. He finally has to come oot because his building is being demolished. So the lads show Archie what's become of Craiglang and the local pub while he's been in. The series itself is very funny and this episode is no exception. The story of how Archie became a hermit is cute - and the bit with the "moose" that becomes his housemate is quite hysterical.

As you might guess, I nabbed a few screen captures from the show for your enjoyment. And you'll note my new LJ icon. (It isn't animated - amazing!)

Archie comes oot.

I think I'll manage to survive these trying times as long as I keep watching my DVDs. DVDs are my friends. I love my DVDs.
