It’s Saturday! I have a a round-up for you. This is basically the fourth round-up from quarantine. And yesterday we were told by our taoiseach that the lockdown – due to end on tomorrow’s Easter Sunday – has been extended until May 5. No surprise, really. We may have flattened the curve, but the virus is still raging, and I am actually horrified to see the infection numbers now going up by the hundreds every day. It feels a bit discouraging, considering that we have scaled down our public lives so much, and yet the virus is still spreading. I guess it will remain like that for a while. So ‘Project Spring-Clean’ can go forward, as can the experiments with my left-over stash of marshmallows – whatever can I do with those? Hot chocolates not an option – our milk is precious enough.
But first, let’s look at tumblr this week:
- Here is gimmethehobbit again with one of their adorable sketches… toilet humour of a different kind
- Mezzmerizedbyrichard captioned this “sunshine courtesy of…” – apt! That smile really makes everything better
- Did you see Jacob Dudman’s Q&A the other day? Mezzmerizedbyrichard has combined the tweet that refers to Richard with the corresponding scenes in TS. Love it!
- Drledeboer has screencapped a heart-breaking/warming scene from TS for anyone into daddy!Armitage
- There is a bit of an “Ask” back and forth here between fizzyxcustard and dabisburntnut – this was a sweet little drabble, almost, about John Porter
- TBT UATSC in gif-format courtesy of acebodhi
- Riepu10 posted this on Twitter, too, but in case you haven’t seen it. Choose your quarantine house from these 7 options. I settled on #2 and ignored Sir Guy (because I couldn’t deal with *four* overbearning housemates)
- I really enjoyed this quote from the novel, illustrated with the screen caps from NS. Posted by mezzmerizedbyrichard
- Aninomori has posted a coloured version of her Little Dolly fan art. Too cute!
- Fizzyxcustard eulogises Thorin’s eyes
- “Thorin Oakenshield’s smile – Actual Weapon of Mass Destruction”. Truth. Post by darthstitch
- Real or fake? Do you agree with dabisburntnut?
- Sounds like Gizzy alright… What a Guy Wants by nfcomics
Only one more day and I can finally eat some chocolate and crisps again. Not together, mind.
Although there was a short period when they sold a novelty chocolate bar with cheese & onion crisps. Tasted as disgusting as it sounds. I tried. And regretted. But when last shopping, I planned ahead and bought a six pack of little bags of Pombear crisps. And Hari’s massive Easter egg shipment is also waiting for me… Are you all set?
Have a lovely Easter weekend – and continue to stay safe!
