triskellian: (patchwork)
I don't much care about Harry Potter. I read the first four; they were OK. I gave up on the fifth 'cos it wasn't, and I'm not planning to read the sixth. The films are good fun, though.

What I do like is stuff in the style of other stuff. And I'm rather fond of the Powerpuff girls, so I love [ profile] potterpuffs, which I've only just discovered. Of course, judging by the length of the user's flist, I'm probably the last person to notice, but just in case any of you are even more behind the times than I am (and cos I know there's at least one HP fan on my flist), I'm sharing. Enjoy ;-)

(Also, GIP. I made this with the Powerpuff girl generator ages ago, and it ended up being part of the inspiration behind my Patchwork character, Abigail.)

"Billie-Jo, who was 13, was found battered to death with a metal tent spike as she painted doors at the family home" (from the BBC)

I think my computer may be becoming sentient. Looking at the BBC News home page just now, I noticed this link: Lib Dems' prescriptions pledge, which naturally interested me after last week's ranting. Clearly it interested my computer as well, since it was a visited link. My computer is worrying about me! Isn't that sweet?

Anyway. The BBC article says that the Lib Dems are proposing* to increase the numbers of chronic illnesses which attract free prescriptions, although it doesn't say whether asthma is included. The press release on the Lib Dems' website does include asthma, but it also says that the government makes a profit on inhalers for asthmatics. Which is a phrase that makes me furious just to read it.

*The BBC implies that 'proposing' means they're making it part of their election manifesto, whereas the Lib Dem website says they're presenting a bill. My understanding of the way these things work is horribly imperfect, but presumably the latter implies a far greater chance of it actually happening?

ETA: [ profile] onebyone points out that the Lib Dem press release I found is over two years old. D'oh.

I just clicked this link: Girls beat boys in infant classes on the BBC home page. I was expecting it to be an article about girls being given rulers and told by the teacher to use them to hit unruly boys. But, as you'll have realised by now if you've clicked, it's an article about girls doing better than boys at infant school level.

Did I imagine the girls-hitting-boys-with-rulers story? I thought I remembered it from earlier in the week, but now I think maybe I dreamt it...
