T - 4 months and counting...  
I cannot even BEGIN to tell you how stressed out I am (so I won't!), but whenever it does get to be too much, I take a "time-out" and make an icon :-D or search for pictures :-D  My life will be changing in so many ways within the next few months that the pressure is starting to get to me ... WHY can't i just stay in school forever?? WHYYYYYYYYY!??????? 

Enough ranting!!! ONTO OUR ITINERARY!!!!!

OK, today we have

1) A piece of Helen randomness and a piece of school randomness that MUST be shared!!! (promise they'll make you laugh!! - well, i hope!) 
2) BIG pictures - have we seen them before? no idea! but they're huge and i just found them, so i'm posting them anyway! 
3) GETTY IMAGE PICTURES WITHOUT WATERMARKS!!!! AHHHH!!!! (I literally FREAKED OUT when i found these!!!) - (actually I was thinking twice about posting these, but our ever-so-amazing HNG (crown_the_queen) told me you guys might like "savable" versions of these photos without ugly white marks across it! - so here they are!); and 
4) Prime Suspect 5 - Most Memorable Moments - Part One 

So without further ado!!!!

1) a)  Apparently these two movie studios hired the same Poster artist!!! LOL!!! (so who do you think'll win? Personally I think the Queen can whoop Hannibal's butt with one frosty glance!! (but then i haven't seen Silence of the Lambs or Hannibal so what do I know?) 

1) b) Whenever someone is sent a funny law-related email it basically circulates around the law school (via email) like WILDFIRE.  This next one was just SOOOO hilarious I just HAD to share it with you all!!!  It made me laugh IN CLASS!!! 

Just FYI (in case you don't know) a "deposition" is the recorded testimony of a witness given in preparation for trial (and is usually quite thick!)

LOL!!! This REALLY happend!  Whenever something like this tales place the attorney or judge requests the transcript from the court reporter and sends it to Judge Buckmeyer who then weeds through them and publishes the best ones in a segment at the back of the Texas Bar Journal called et cetera!!!  (basically the ONLY part of the TBJ i actually read! *evil grin*)


I left the tags on cause they asked me so politely! :-D (that and i was lazy! tee hee)

This is the "whoosh" picture i posted more than a month ago... just supersized!! 

At the Beatle's LOVE by Cirque de Soleil 

3) GETTY IMAGES WITHOUT WATERMARKS!!! (Ok, now, i have over 200 of these, but CLEARLY I can't post them ALL at the moment ... so this is part 1 of ... 3?) Enjoy!

Awwwwwwwwww!!! Aren't Deb's parents PRECIOUS!?!?! ;)

PHEW!!!! Ok, that was just over 1/3 of them!!! Want the rest? - if you do TELL ME (otherwise i really won't post them!) 

4) Prime Suspect 5 - Memorable Moments - Part 1 !!!  (A lot of us seem to be on quite the PS kick lately so I knew the next "memorable moments" would have to be a PS... and I chose PS5 for one reason... FOR MY WONDERFUL SIS maggiesheridan!!!!!! (who happens to be obsessed with it right now)

Jane:  I don't know what you've heard about me... but, 
Balinger: What have I heard?
Jane: That bloody Jane Tennison she'll be storming into your nick, the balls of your best officers trailing from her jaws, spraying people with claret, calling people masons, threatening resignation, ... well.... well, I just wanted to tell you that I'm not a complete maniac. 
Balinger: Aren't you? How disappointing. 

The Street: Now, I didn't actually hear you read me rights.  Did I miss that? Am i under arrest? 

Jane: Oh no, if you want me to leave just say so.  I won't actually go, but I know saying so will make you feel like a big boy. 

Jane: Rankin, when I say 6 o'clock I mean 6:20 I don't mean 8 o'clock.  However, I will take your apology for granted as i can't actually be bothered to sit and listen to it, so just tell me what you've got and pray that it's worth me being mildly pissed off about. 

Balinger: It isn't just your reputation for snootiness that precedes you. 

Michael: Who is it? Who have you got? 
Jane: Oh, it's your girlfriend's little brother, Campbell. 
Michael: What? [starts laughing]
Jane: [laughing] It's pretty funny isn't it? .... You know what's even funnier? He says it was all your idea. 

Jerry: I'd like permission to put armed response on standby, they can sit two minutes away.  You never know. 
Jane: Hmm... two minutes.  Well, let's hope Tony's gun shoots slow bullets. 

Jane: How many TV appearances have you made?
Balinger: Don't be silly

Jane: I'm not being silly ... how many?
Balinger: I've done seven.
Jane: Yah, well I've made nine so I win.  Anything more to discuss? 


Next time... "THE KISS"!! hehe.. YES that sure as heck was a memorable moment!!! (plus Meg would kill me if i leave it out!) 

sorry about the length of the entry, but when I tried to cut it, it started yelling at me!!! (stubborn little bugger!)

I have faith in you! You will move on to really make something out of your life. You can do it!!! I can imagine how stressful it is, but just know that we're all rooting for ya, honey. :) Feel free to rant. Let it out. Lord knows I do it all the time....

You have officially conquered Getty Images. Kicked their ass completely. And now we all will be kissing yours for these fabulous pics posted here. I FREAKIN' LOVE YOU MAN! Well...WO-MAN! That Hannibal VS. The Queen pic is too funny. Hehehee.

PS 5 - YESS! I love all of the PS, but 5 has got to be an all-time favorite. You included some great moments. I totally forgot about the "It isn't your reputation for snootiness that precedes you" line!

So, as usual, I bow to you. You rock at life, and I thank you kindly, m'dear.

I told you: pom poms at the ready!
So, first things first: I know I'm just some random girl you know from LJ, but PLEASE feel free to "dump" your real-life issues on me any time you want or need to! Seriously! I really DO understand how you're feeling (although I seem to have taken the option behind door number three: stay in school forever. It's not always that reassuring, though, let me tell you).

Your posts would render me speechless if I weren't so damn wordy. NOT WANT the rest of the unwatermarked photos? You're just being evil, aren't you? I almost DIED when I saw the ones you just posted from the Costume Designers Guild. Even feeling under the weather Helen is lovely.

And thanks so much for the PS5 memorable moments! It's really my favorite (despite the fact that, as you know, I'm currently having a love-hate affair with PS6). I love EVERYTHING about it. To me it's PERFECT!

You're awesome, Liz! I curtsy daintily (and narrowly avoid tipping over -- close call) to your amazing-ness! Baci ed abbracci,
Idiosyncratic Stanwyckalataye on April 12th, 2007 09:23 pm (UTC)
Re: I told you: pom poms at the ready!
And now I'm replying to my own comment. How deeply saddening. But I forgot to mention the deposition. Of COURSE it's from Alabama. Like, obviously. I'm not sure whether I should be faintly embarrassed, or just laugh!

You have done it yet once again.....you have made Deb squeal, scream, get teary, almost faint......*THUD*

Ok, so I need to know......how did you get getty pics without watermarks?? I thought you have like a professional photographer liscense to get in there. hmmmmm


The first one.....ADORE the Emmy gown and wedding jacket!! FAB!!!!

And the ones where it says San Fransisco Film Festival behind them....I was literally right there when those were taken....and in the white gown with Tay....right there.....then there are the Las Vegas ones (purple dress, flowered top)......I was there for those too.....they bring back soooo many amazing memories!! Thank you for that My Love!! It makes me soooo happy to see those again....so clear and with NO watermarks!!

You are a legend Doll and I thank you SOOOOO VERY MUCH FOR THESE!!


Love you!
xoxo Deb
screen_queen: BAFTA - soft green-orangescreen_queen on April 13th, 2007 02:56 am (UTC)
AWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! that's quite the reaction hon!!

MUHAHAHA!! you want to know the extent of my deviousness huh? Yah, I didn't get them FROM Getty, it's more of a derivative sight... but they don't let you "save" ::wink:wink:: so I had to break out my nefarious side (It was actually a lot of work!)

Yah, those pictures always make me think of you! :D I'm glad you like them!! :D And it's my pleasure to make them available to you sans watermark!!!

A LEGEND? Wow ... *THUD* hehe... you be the goddess and I'll be the lengend ;) ... although I'll tell you right now I don't think I can live up to that hon!!

You're VERY VERY welcome!!! Hope you like the second batch as much!!!

Take care!!!

hanny_backwards: Eeek!hanny_backwards on April 13th, 2007 02:06 am (UTC)
Wow, thanks so much for those pictures - they are amazing! I absolutely adore her expressions in the costume designers awards set of photos. (A sort of 'up yours' to that botoxed collection of 'actresses' (Read: celebrities) who couldn't make any of those expresions if they tried). And what's more, Helen's expressions are totally genuine. So adorable! TO Oscar ones are also beautiful - I can't get enough of that dress. So, so, so beautiful.

I love how you do those 'best of' picture series with quotes! They are so fantastic -sort of like watching the movie in a super-condensed version. Perfect for the times when I really should be doing something else, but can afford ten minutes procrastination ... ;-)

And that law thing was funny too! I'm doing law as well, but I'm only in first year so I think I have a long way to go (four and a half years to be precise!) before I feel qualified to 'get' that sort of humour!

(And I'm using one of the icons you posted in the last post - hope that's ok! They're BRILLIANT!)

Ok sorry about my incredibly long winded comment! I hope you feel less stressed soon. Obviously I have no idea about what's happening, but I sympathise with the not wanting to leave school thing. Just had that myself! Anyway, hope it all gets better soon. And until such time, just keep distracting yourself with as much Helen-ness as possible (icons, if you like - that way we all benefit ;-)). I'm sending good, un-stressed vibes your way...
screen_queen: B&W - Dame - w/blue lightscreen_queen on April 13th, 2007 02:48 am (UTC)
YAY!!! You're actually using one of my icons!!! I can't tell you how honoured if feel!!!! (OF COURSE it's ok!!) thanks :D I aim to please!!

REALLY?!?! You're doing law too!?! (FIVE years for law? Where ARE you?! - It's three in the U.S. - thank heavens!) Was it too difficult to understand? I tried to choose one that was obviously funny and that you didn't have to have any legal knowledge for. But sometimes I can't step outside of my brain enough to get a layman's perspective. I'm glad you liked it though!

AMEN SISTER!!! hehe... HELEN is a healthy weight, with no cosmetic surgery and IN YO FACE 20 something starlets cause she looks BETTER THAN you EVER will!! HA! ;) The woman is an inspiration! (and I agree - her expressions are PRICELESS!)

I'm so glad you like the "Memorable moments" section!! Muahaha! I'm an enabler for procrastinators! hehe ;)

**receiving un-stressed vibes** THANK YOU!! (well the short version goes something like: finishing two grad degrees, exams, group projects, graduating (invitations GAH!), job-hunt in two cities, family pressure/insanity, BAR exam, etc, etc, etc, :D)

yup! working on icons and headers and wallpapers :D !! And you've just inspired me to continue!!

Thank you for your incredibly kind words!!
You seem very sweet!!
Take care hon!!!

;) LOVE LOVE long comments!!

Sorry Screen_queen :-(
Hello Screen_queen!

You might remember me by my YouTube username: Starlight Melody.

You generously gave me the link to some interviews I was looking for. Since two of them didn't work out, I sent you an e-mail asking if you could upload the last two.

Now, I'm reading that you are anxious and very busy with your studies at University...and I feel quite ashamed of having asked you more. I hope you'll forgive me about that.

Don't be anxious about leaving university. Everything will work out all right, you'll see...;-D

Remember what Helen Mirren said about having panic attacks as a young woman...afraid that things wouldn't turn out alright...It is a time everybody goes through but have faith in yourself and things will work out fine.

Lots of good vibrations and positive thinking to you.

Starlight Melody

OMG!! did you send me a message back!?! I'M SO SORRY!!! I haven't really been on YouTube for weeks now. Haven't been working on any videos either :( ... LJ is enough to keep up with for now.


Which ones didn't work? I'll see what i can do ;)
If sendspace doesn't hate me too much today (which it often does - so don't hold your breath!), I'll be posting them here on helenmirren so keep an eye out!

Thanks SO MUCH for the encouraging words!!
I had a very productive day yesterday so i'm feeling a bit better today! :-D
