Super!

So yeah, I should probably do a post...

Still haven't finished my polishing yet, people. My mops arrived at about 3pm on Wednesday, which meant i got a solid hour of polishing in before i had to get showered an go to J's. And let me tell, you, an hour is hardly worth all the messing about it takes. What kind of crappy postman comes at three?? Managed to get about three hours in on Friday night because instead of going to pub and having a lovely evening with J, he went out with his work mates (can't decide whether I'm grumbly about that or not. My plan is to ignore my indecision til such a time that i forget, thus avoiding the issue altogether). But anyway, my polishing still isn't done because due to the vast amount of soldering i did on each piece, everything is covered in firestain and it takes an age to polish out. The non-silverworkers among you, that probably doesn't make much sense, but trust me, it's a massive ball ache. And I don't even have balls, and it still makes them ache. It's an oxide layer on the surface of the silver that comes from the copper that is in the silver when it is heated up during soldering, and it shows up as a dull grey stain on the silver. Which has to be filed/sanded/polished off. It's tedious and takes forever. Bloody things.

But away with such grump inducing folly! The real important issue is that i have bought the whole of the fourth series of Supernatural on DVD! A-WER-HOO! Cost me about thirty quid, because the money making swines at Warner Bros have split the series into two halves for some reason, and it was 12 quid for the first half and 19 quid for the second half (though in some places it was £22, so a saving of three paaaahnd there), but never the less, it is in the clutches of my dirty little mitts at last! Obviously I'm not going to just watch the last few episodes that i haven't seen, I've started watching the series from the beginning, to get the full moody angsty Dean experience. I've got up to the one where Dean catches the ghost sickness, and is scared of everything, and its perhaps my favourite episode ever. Not only are we treated to the bit where Dean screams like a little girl at a cat in a locker (i nearly laughed my spleen off), but we also get Dean doing the Eye of the Tiger scene at the end. Class. I might watch it twice.

In fact, I think I'm going to get myself a cup of tea, watch a couple more episodes, and then slog through a bit more polishing. Mmmmm Deanio....

Keep on polishing and don't forget to post some photos as well, please.

Dean is too delicious, I agree!

Photos are imminant, just as soon as polishing is done!

Dean is most lovely. I wasnt entirely chuffed about the whole angel thing, but i suppose i can let it slip, because he is sooooo lovely. lol at the episode where they go back to school, and they get a young teen with zero charisma to play Dean!
