Vote for #Jamie and #Claire! #Outlander on IMDB!

our loversNow, I know this is a tough one for anybody who likes stories set in Scotland and/or starring Scots, but come on. JAMIE & CLAIRE! The greatest love story ever told (yeah, I went there. And I believe it, too!)

So tell the world that we love our favorite couple, and they are the best (even though Claire isn’t TECHNICALLY Scottish — she just has a little Scot in her. Heh. Dirty joke. *G*)

It’s a quick sign up, if you don’t already have an account — and you can use your FB if you want.

Yes, I KNOW Inebriation is spelled with an I, thanks!

And in today’s whiskey, how about one of Sam’s favorites?

Lagavulin_bottling

This, my friends, would be varied versions of Lagavulin. I wasn’t sure exactly WHICH one Sam liked, so I just posted a few. The 16 seems to be the most popular, from what I’ve seen. However, being the cheapskate that I am, I think I’ve only had the 12. The taste (of the 16) is described as follows by The Whiskey Exchange.

“The Islay representative in the ‘Classic Malts’ series is a deep, dry and exceptionally peaty bruiser. Probably the most pungent of all Islay malts, Lagavulin is not for the faint-hearted but inspires fanatical devotion in its many followers.”

I don’t really know about flavor beyond “good,” “yuck (I’m looking at you, gin),” and “I’m So Drunk I Don’t Care.” I somehow think that Scottish whisky (apparently I spell it wrong — when it’s crafted in Scotland, it should be whiskY, but when it’s made in the States, it’s whiskEy. Whatevs.) was WAY stronger in the 18th century, so while I’m sure quality still could vary, I don’t think Claire cared. Plus, there’s always the Rhenish. Or the Claret. Whatever’s around!

Another one I need to attribute -- anybody want to claim, or know who's it is?

(c) Killing Time aka atom1cflea@tumblr — HILARIOUS recaps!

Let’s see, how much time do we have left? I’m trying to put in a countdown clock on my blog just to depress myself every day, but WordPress is really difficult to add outside apps to. So, right now as I’m typing this, we’re looking at a desert of:

180 Days, 8 hours, and 29 minutes. Oy.

A Slow Day in Hiatus Land… #Outlander #OutlanderHiatus #HORRIBLEHIATUS

First, I have to share this pic by the awesome @TribeTobias, because… yeah.

Bys1z9nCIAAIhmkShe needs to have a large bottle of something in her hand. For me, it’s Drambuie.

ckhovOkay, as I said, mine too.

Seriously, I just started A Breath of Snow and Ashes (ABoSA for the n00bs), and plan to read the final two main books, then the short stories that I missed, then the Lord John books. THEN I have a really ambitious reading plan that I may or may not pull off in six months, if I plan on writing as well.

I don’t know how much people who read this blog really care about the process of writing, but if you want to follow around, stop on by Bloodthirsty Muses.

AWESOME NEWS for our beloved Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe! Their IMDB popularity is through the ROOF! Sam is NUMBER TWO!!!

I feel all proud and proprietary, like they’re actual friends of mine or something! LOL I feel like they are — they are so open and generous with their time and dealing with the insanity that is fandom and sudden fame. I just love them so much, and I’ll keep hoping for all the success they could ever dream of… with a minimum of suffering.

I’ve always wondered… what role does IMDB play in the industry itself? I can’t imagine it’s like a resume or catalog where a casting director is just cruising around looking for a type or something, is it?

Anyhoo… dinner to eat, writing to do. Maybe more later, because I can never really stop fangirling, no matter how much I say I will or can.
