In no particular order.

1 - Tim DeKay. For his kindness and generosity. For his smile and all the little faces. For making Peter Burke so much more than he was on paper. For his talent to make you feel. For his chest that you want to cuddle against.

2 - Family and Friends. You know, those people you grew up with, who love you, don't question you, but understand you and take you for who you are. The people you can always talk to.

3 - Summer in the garden. For the cherries and raspberries from the garden. For the breakfast with fresh pastries in the garden. For the late dinners outside until night.

4 - White Collar. It's a fact, watching an episode - or 5 minutes - of White Collar brings a smile to my face and makes me all fluffy inside. It doesn't matter that I know the episodes all by heart.

5 - Books. Way before the internet (and actually quite some times after), I was spending ALL my free time reading. Still today, I can't travel without a book. If I know the doctor will likely be late, I take a book to read in the waiting room. Books are like windows to other worlds and other lives, that you open and close as you open a close the book. In Paris I was reading in the subway. Not so easy to read while walking (though I've actually done it), so I don't read on my way to work anymore. But I read in the plane instead. Good thing with a book, you don't need to switch it off during take off and landing!

And I'm tagging all of you on my flist, who haven't done the meme yet! Consider yourself tagged.

Oh and also, I'm thinking of doing a White Collar meme. Anyone would be interested?

Liz Climo's cartoons are absolutely adorable. And Rory and his dad are the most adorable of all. And of course, they totally make me think of Peter and Little Neal.
I've bought both The Little World of Liz Climo and Rory the dinosaur - Me and my Dad, and that's just ♥♥♥.

The Great Book of Little Neal - Master Post

On April 1st, 2004, was shown on the very serious French/German channel Arte, a documentary named Operation Lune (The Dark Side of the Moon), which you can find in English here, and in French here.
As the airing date should have suggested, this was a very elaborated April's Fool joke. The documentary tells the "real" story behind the Moon landing and how Stanley Kubrick filmed the images of the landing in a studio in London, using the set of 2001, Space Odyssee.
If the documentary starts rather believably, it escalades rapidly into a mountain of (hilarious) nonsense, spreading clues here and there that it's all a joke (inacuracies, names from movies, unbelievable details...).

You can read a bit more about it on Wikipedia.

But, to Arte's big embarrassement, this joke, taken out of context, was later taken seriously by a lot of conspirationists, and its fabricated arguments about the fake moon landing are often cited as proof that it was all staged. I have even heard fellow scientists - people that work in planetary science! - telling me very seriously that, yes, Stanley Kubrick himself directed it! I hadn't heard about that fake documentary at the time, I thought that was just silly.

And years later you have Mozzie watching "Moon Landing: fact of fiction"... LOL

Note that the fake documentary doesn't go as far as saying the landing didn't happen, but just that the images were staged.
We did bring rocks back from the Moon, and they've been thoroughly studied for 40 years, so it's hard to say the landing didn't happen...

But that's okay, Arte, it was a AWESOME joke!
