starting rumours

This week's redesign is in honor of Syttende Mai, the Norwegian version of Cinco de Mayo, but not as much fun, and on the 17th of May. Eat pickled herring (or lutefisk if you're hardcore), practice your rosemaling and be generally stoic and unemotional. I'm trying to tap into my Nordic half but the Irish keeps seeping through.

Isn't Crown Prince Haakon a høttie? He has a bit of an adorkable element to him, and oddly hazel eyes for a Norwegian.

Thanks to all you killjoys who crushed my hopes of a Kylie Minogue appearance on Dr. Who. Can't a gay geek have a little hope? I've decided I'm going to start similar rumours:

- Olivia Newton-John joins the cast of Battlestar Galactica in Season 4 as Lucy Lawless' skinjob replacement, the most evil Cylon yet: Kira. Not even Six can contend with her fierceness;

- Stevie Nicks guest stars as a long-lost great aunt in a two-hour Charmed reunion to engage in a massive spellbattle against an evil reincarnation of Shannen Doherty;

- Whitney Houston stars in a revisit of the Touched by an Angel series as Della Reese's illegitimate crack baby, all grown up and saving souls;

- Cyndi Lauper reprises her role from Vibes as Sylvia Pickel, mentor to Patricia Arquette's character in Medium. Jeff Goldlbum makes a guest appearance.

Did anyone catch the cast of Heroes on the Today show this morning? Adrain Pasdar had a big black woofy goatee. Grrrr.

So like Hiro showed us all how easy it is to become a Kensai sword master tonight, as long as Mr. Sulu is your sensei. It's that easy. George Takei has experience you know.

And based upon my research, you and Prince Haakon are very distant cousins!

Isn't Adrienne Barbeau also guesting on next season's BG?

>>>" you and Prince Haakon are very distant cousins!"

No wonder I'm so hot.

I celebrated seventeen May with fiskebolle (my mum sent me a can) and I tried my hand at a vegetarian dyresteg, replacing the venison with tempeh. It was so, so. Finally, some grøt which was absolutely horrid.

I don't know why it was horrid, but it was. Something must of spoiled.

Damn, how many evil reincarnations of Shannon McCarthy does the world need to suffer through?

Nathan Petrelli with a bushy goatee? Gads! Normally, I'm all for the woofy look, but I just can't approve of covering that amazing jaw line.

George Takei rocks. Enough said.

And I've always thought ONJ was a toaster way back when she made "Twist of Fate." A movie of pure Cylon evil if there ever was one.

Jimbo - OMG you forgot the 80s sci-fi tart/slut Erin Grey.

Gø Nørsk!

OMG, Scandinavian royalty is fantastic. My personal favourite is Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, but chacun à son goût. Unfortunately CPFoD (as the kids call him) is married to a most unfortunate Australian skank. One day he will be mine. One day...

Did you see Kylie on my favorite Aussie sit-com Kath and Kim? - hysterical!
