Is by Meimi, that wonderful Goddess who brings joy and happiness to the hearts of Ingrids.
This time, Meimi brought joy by doing a layout of Isumi Shinichirou and Waya Yoshitaka, of Hikaru no Go. It is full of wub.


Insert something utterly Wodehouse-ian here

"Shakespeare said some rather good things." - Bertie Wooster, Jeeves and the Tie that Binds, P. G. Wodehouse.

I was lucky enough to find The Hat Sharpening Shop yesterday, which has an excellent Jeeves and Wooster site, although I can't tell if it's still being updated or if it exists in stasis.

Still, it appears to be very useful, as it exists now. It's primarily concerned with the television show that starred Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, but there's also book-related stuff, including an impressive attempt to organize the stories into some kind of chronology.

I note that I now need a copy of The World of Jeeves and Wooster, which collects all the short Jeeves and Wooster stories. It would be very useful, and mean I would eliminate the problem of possibly getting books with the same content (because I love Wodehouse, I really do, God bless him, but the fact is if you try and boil a story down to a simple plot summary, everything gets mixed up -very- quickly, and it isn't helped by the fact that so many of the books got slapped with different titles when they were published in America).

I am disappointed to see that the mp3s of the soundtrack are down, though (which is why I hope the site is still being updated and there's hope that they'll come back up). I wasn't even aware that there was a soundtrack. Possibly because it is, apparently, the most difficult album to find in the history of all time. It'd be nice to hear, though. I remember the music from the show being absolutely delightful (don't give me that look - it has been over ten years, after all). And, well, Hugh Laurie singing.

It'd be nice, is all.

I think I just realized that I don't think I -know- any Wodehouse fans anymore. How very peculiar.

Simply finding it odd,
Almighty Ingrid, Signing Off
