I forgot to say that when trixieleitz and I were sampling chocolate at the market before buying, a middle-aged tourist couple turned up and were both offered samples. The guy said indignantly in what sounded like a French accent, "I am not a woman!"

"Chocolate is for everyone," said Chocolate Man, a burly fellow with tattooed arms. We both agreed, possibly laughing at that point.

"No," said Stupid Tourist, adding proudly, "I do not drink wine either." Yeah, only hard liquor would be manly enough. Was he called Jarvique by any chance?

Last night trixieleitz chose The Day the Earth Stood Still from our DVDs. It's an excellent film with a very good female character (a rarity in old SF), but I can't help thinking that the deterrent at the end assumes that political leaders are sane. Besides, stamping out violence by threatening to blow your planet up if you're naughty doesn't seem a very thoughtful move. Knowing humans, they'll band together against the common insult, then come visiting with a bigger Gort, possibly called Gabor.

The costume designer was called Travilla! That's right, the famous one-eyed artist with the delicate touch, specialising in suede.

House episode meme

Snurched from spacefall.

Using the electronic TV listings source of your choice, obtain a list of programmes with 'house' in the title or subtitle, then write a plot outline for an episode of House, MD inspired by that title (perhaps drawing on the synopsis for guest characters and other inspiration).
Delta House - House overdoses on painkillers and has a dream about his descendant Gregri who succeeds as a diagnostician despite his lowly grade. His patients include Space Commander Travis (headaches due to eyestrain) and Vila Restal who has a puzzling array of symptoms.

Desperate Housewives - House goes home for a Thanksgiving family reunion and the big snark guns are brought out during grace around the table. The women in the family are as renowned for their sarcasm as the men and several injuries occur when the multiple arguments come to blows and inappropriate use of cutlery--and the cry goes up for a doctor in the house.

Dog House - a dog follows House in the park and refuses to go away. House is considering putting it down until he reads that dogs can sniff out autism and breast cancer, though his efforts to train the dog in the latter cause problems with Cuddy and several patients.

Little House on the Prairie - A flashback episode to House as a child in the Midwest. When he successfully diagnoses a local farmer as having a severe gopher allergy, he is inspired to become a doctor and decides to practise on his friends, family, and assorted livestock. Note that the experimental cow breast implant scene is not recommended for sensitive viewers.

The House of Windsor (AKA Buck House) - Impressed by his reputation, the Queen hires House but he has to contend with the hostile Prince of Wales who wanted a naturopath who can speak plant. Warning: contains corgis and stiff upper lips.

Wodehouse Playhouse - no, he wouldn't--to Cameron's disappointment.
