For our 17th wedding anniversary three days ago, Husband blogged a similarity analysis of these quilt blocks he programmed for me when we first started dating.  I later turned them into our wedding quilt and some years after that, he chose some of the images for the cover art of his computer programming book.
As part of our artscow.com freebies, I got a zippered pouch printed with his cover art on the front and the quilt blocks on the back, and the cover art on a keychain as well.  They arrived today and he seems tickled.

‘He’s a floppy-haired Hitler, and a nerd’

Philip + Gino + Rupert’s acting: favourite scenes, 1/2

‘Why, when he looked up to begin, was Gino convulsed with silent laughter?’

– E. M. Forster, Where Angels Fear to Tread (1908), Chapter 2

‘I really didn’t want to do another [period film] because I’ve still only done costume. But I got this, and I liked the part of Philip and it was much funnier than the other E. M. Forster films that I did. […] Also, I didn’t want to play another floppy-haired romantic and Philip wasn’t. He’s a floppy-haired Hitler, and a nerd.’

– Rupert Grave on playing Philip Herriton in Where Angels Fear to TreadEmpire magazine (UK), July 1991

I don’t normally do these kinds of things, but I like this one and I think it’s good to make yourself see your cuteness, so …

I was tagged in a “six photos that make you feel cute” meme by dozmuffinxc , so… here you go!

I tag the following cuties… tempestcaliban lestratosphere chibireaper distractmymind earlyquantumstatephenomenon littlecheshirecat

Oh help.  I was not prepared for this degree of cuteness.
