Diary of a Madwoman
Spending a Tuesday evening snuggled up with Stephen Fry

It's honestly delightful to sit on my couch and have a mini Stephen Fry Fest. I don't do it nearly often enough, I've got to tell myself that sometimes I need to do something for me. It's odd that his voice and glorious use of language is one of the few things that has a calming effect on me.

I'm starting with the re-run of Bones in which Stephen plays Gordan Gordan Wyatt
-I am now remembering why I was so furious at my husband for deleting Stephen's guest starring role on Bones.

Followed by Part 2 of HIV and Me.
-I cannot recommend this documentary any more strongly. I spoke at length today about it at work. We literally had an hour discussion and I haven't even viewed Part 2 yet. It is a brutally honest, unflinching and caring view of the state of the world in regards to AIDS and how today's youth, as represented by the younger British population, really does not comprehend or seemily care about what unsafe sex/drug use/etc can do to you. It gives you a life sentence, it is NOT glamourous and NO ONE is immune.
*It's especially heartbreaking to watch Stephen with his former partner from his Cambridge days that is now infected and mostly blind due to the disease. 

bonorattle I am running behind my dear, Still finishing Bones. Mikey just went down. It'll be after 10 if that's ok?

He really does have a beautiful, soothing voice, doesn't he? One of my fave "Bits" is the "Tricky Linguistics" sketch, because Stephen really gets to show off his way with words.

And bravo for bringing up the AIDS documentary. I really do need to get around to watching it.

His voice is really un-rivaled in my book. I showed my mother "The LEtter" (my ultimate favorite) and "The Lovliness" sketch and turned her into an ultimate Fryphile

The documentary is difficult to watch because of its in-your-face approach but should really be something everyone views. The world's ignorance towards AIDS astounds me.

I, too, love spending an evening with Stephen. Lately I've been downloading episodes of QI and they are perfect to watch just before bed ... they are light and funny yet informative. I agree with you on the HIV documentary too -- it should be obligatory viewing for everyone! I was shocked at the part about some people getting infected deliberately so they could be part of the group or whatever.

I need to find QI episodes to download.

The documentary seriously needs to be shown in Health classes. God knows her einteh US they would never allow it but people forget.

When he was talking to the pink hair guy about the 5 infected guys who share "The Gift" with others, *shutters* just frightening.

Stephen is so refreshingly honest about everything, it's impossible NOT to adore him.

*interupts conversation*

I can help you with QI episodes. The Facebook community posts links. I also know the super sekret downloading community...

Stephen is love. That is all.

He makes it impossible not to love him.

Thanks sweetie!
