|11:08 am - 8 Things on 8 September|
1) I hadn't quite realized how difficult it now is for me to post every day! Good night nurse, it's tricky.
2) Pursuant to yesterday's conversation about Ruth Wilson (aka Alice on Luther, aka my favorite television Jane Eyre), I searched Pinterest and found this image of her, in dapper Edwardian(ish) drag. With a bowler hat.
3) Which immediately made me yearn for a gender-flipped film remake of The Avengers -- 60s TV, not comics -- with Wilson as Jane Steed and Tom Hiddleston as Mr Peel.
4) I can't decide what his first name would be (because the name Emma doesn't gender-flip as easily as the name John). Edward?
5) But not the nicknames Eddie or Ed, because Mr Peel doesn't work that way. Hmmm.
6) Cool article about Carine Roitfeld in the Observer today. I don't entirely know what I think about her work/style, but she's certainly interesting.
7) My own style at the moment is best described as Post-Workout/Post-Outside-Work/Post-Cleaning Slob.
8) I should go shower and change. And wheee, I hit 8 things! :)
Cheers to all, and may you have lots of good things to talk about today.
No kidding, the posting-every-day thing mostly makes me feel so incredibly boring.
We're going to go see The World's End today, so there's that.
You always seem to have cool things to talk about, Cronopio! :)
(And enjoy the movie, too.)

Too many syllables for a good transposition! Alas. How will I manage my goofy dream-gender-flip without a name??
Hugs, and a great Sunday.

Still three syllables instead of two! (And also I'm now thinking of Emerson Cod -- wasn't that a character on Pushing Daisies?)
I've set myself a difficult problem! I appreciate your help, though. :)
Cheers and a good Sunday!
Let's see - how about Elliot? :-)
Another three-syllable name! I am now working under the assumption that most men's names that start with E have too many syllables. :)
But I did start playing around with spelling, and Elyot might do anyway. :)
Thanks, Cindergal! Happy Sunday!

Eric or Edmond?
I don't know how you come up with something different every day, but I'm having fun reading it :)
I'm now leaning toward Edmund or Edward, for that nice Old English resonance.
But never Eddie or Ed!
(I'm far too invested in this...)
Cheers and many thanks, T, and thanks for commenting! I appreciate you!

Emil Peel? Not very euphonious, though... :-)
Emil seems too... German. Which, if it's set in the 60s, seems unlikely for a very very British person --
WHY AM I OBSESSED WITH THIS??
Hugs and thanks, Gwynne, and a nice Sunday evening.
I am also attired in a post-outside work/post-cleaning/mid-laundry style. Sadly, except for the braid and the potting soil under my nails, I don't think I look all that different than usual.
What have you been planting? :)
And Emmet makes me think of Emmett Kelly, which seems wrong. But it probably is the closest analogue...
Hugs hugs and thanks, S!
Emrys? or Emrick? (Emmet makes me think of Queer as Folk which is also wrong.)
I was repotting some plants for a friend. I fully expect that they won't last the month, as I have a black thumb and no idea what I'm doing. I also trimmed shrubbery, dusted and cleaned the glass on assorted photographs and hid assorted things in assorted closets.
It's much more interesting doing chores in someone else's home.
Goodness, you were filled with energy! Cheers to you!
(And I hope the repotted plants live. I could kill the hardiest specimen, so I hope your thumb ISN'T as black as mine. :))

Male equivalent of Emma, hmmmmm. Edgar or Ethan, maybe.
Edgar does work! Now I have the King Lear problem, in that Edgar is much nicer but Edmund is more interesting.... :)
Cheers and hugs to you, A, and a good start to your week!

I'd go with Edward or Edmund. An old-fashioned nickname for Edward is Ned, which might work. A young(ish) adult in the 60s would have had a fairly traditional name (unless he was Morse *g*).
I was thinking Ned would be an acceptable nickname, too. :)
Thanks, K, and cheers, and no, Mr Peel would not be named Endeavour! :))
And a happy transition into 9 September for you! :))
Great picture of Ruth Wilson. And getting really slobbish can make the following shower so nice--and so well-deserved!
I definitely worked for my shower today. :)
And cheers for Ruth Wilson and for you! Happy rest of your Sunday!
I'm sure your version of #7
is more stylish than mine. ((Hugs))
I can assure you otherwise! It's a thing that actually bugs me -- all my workout/work-around clothes are old, tattered castoff T-shirts and inexpensive, fraying sweats etc. I'd like to upgrade, but a) I feel weird throwing away 'perfectly serviceable' clothing that's going to get grubby anyway, and b) I feel weirder spending good money on workout clothes when I could buy shoes instead.
We will persevere through these feelings. :)
Hugs and a great Monday, Roguedemon!
She is fierce and fabulous!
[hugs] Happy Monday, Stevie.
