Big Bang Theory Season 3 promo

You know, it occurs to me every once in a while that a bunch of you are A) not on Twitter or B) not members at sheldon_penny. So I want to make sure you get to see this!

It should be obvious which part I'm ignoring. Or more like, putting up with until it's over because I just like the show too darn much to care. :)

Also, I made a littleway too many frames animated GIF for the 20 day countdown, which was very shippy, but you might still like it... :)

I'm on Twitter and sheldon_penny and I *still* missed this.

The Internet. I'm doing it wrong.
Sep. 2nd, 2009 01:14 pm (UTC)
LOL, no, I think it's more like: the Internet: a full time job! :D

19 more days!
Sep. 2nd, 2009 04:48 pm (UTC)
Well I have to say I'm excited for the show to start up again.

Maybe 'the incident' is a fantasy or dream or something?
Sep. 2nd, 2009 05:47 pm (UTC)
I'm SOOOO excited! :)

I wish I could say that, but people who were at the taping say it's real. :( I'll live though!

I bet the beards are not because they forgot razors or anything but Sheldon like threw them out because it was more practical for them to have 'facial insulation' or something...
Sep. 4th, 2009 04:05 pm (UTC)
LOL I bet you're right. Can't wait to see what the reasoning is...
Sep. 4th, 2009 04:54 pm (UTC)
Three men frantically search the room while one sits calmly with a comic book. All four are sprouting a few days worth of facial hair.

"I don't get it," says Leonard. "I'm sure I packed razors."

"Me too," say the other two in unison. "What could have happened to all three of our raz-"

As one, the three turn to the odd man out, still calmly perusing his reading.

"Sheldon," says Leonard.

"Yeees?" Flips a page. "It's individual relaxation time, Leonard, and if you choose to waste yours that's fine, but I'll thank you to make it quick so I can use mine to the fullest."

"Sheldon," asks Leonard, ignoring the comments, "where are our razors?"

"I threw them out, of course."

"Oh of course!" says Howard. "Of course... WHY???"

"We are in sub zero temperatures. Shaving would be inefficient. Better to grow as much facial hair as you all can, to conserve heat. Heaven knows your brains hardly function well enough when they're heated properly, let alone if you're chilling yourselves too much!"

a few weeks later...

Three full faces of hair and one groomed goatee sit around the dinner table. "I still don't understand why we can't at least keep them trimmed," complains Raj. "I'm going to get ARRESTED trying to fly back home like this!"

"Oh don't be dramatic," dismisses Sheldon. "I need to maintain an air of professionalism as the team leader, especially when I make reports. We're the only ones up here, the only people who have to see you are in this room."

"I guess he's kind of got a point," temporizes Leonard.

"Besides," adds Sheldon, "You all can carry off the neanderthal look just fine."

LOL, I love it! ♥ I am totally linking my Twitter buddies to it... ♥
Sep. 2nd, 2009 05:30 pm (UTC)
*hee*! Love the beards. Wow, that kiss?!! I have the final disk for season 1, but now I have to catch up on Season 2!! I need to get cracking.

"Sidereel" has all of S2 episodes right?

I adore this little show! :D:D
Sep. 2nd, 2009 06:35 pm (UTC)
The beards are epic! :D And yes, season 2 is SOOOO wonderful. If Sidereel doesn't have them, PM me. I'll hook you up. :)

*squeaking sounds*

Eeeeee! I can't wait! I can't wait!
Thanks for posting it.
Sep. 3rd, 2009 02:36 am (UTC)
I'm super excited, too! ♥
Sep. 4th, 2009 12:38 am (UTC)
So exciting! Thanks for posting! I wish I had TV but I guess I'll wait for the DVD!
Sep. 4th, 2009 10:23 am (UTC)
Aw! Do you have the ability to watch online? Because I could find you a way once it premieres. Let me know!
Sep. 4th, 2009 12:20 pm (UTC)
I would love that! Thank you so much!
Sep. 4th, 2009 07:24 am (UTC)
Meh! L/P is so gross. But Sheldon's goatee is all kind of evil!Spock awesome.
Sep. 4th, 2009 10:26 am (UTC)
I agree! :P And LOL, I actually made an icon (by request) from the promo pics of this episode you might appreciate:

You're on Twitter?

I don't go to sheldon_penny anymore-They aren't very friendly and I got updates in the mail about new additions to that "libido enhancer" drug fic.

I'm indifferent to Leonard and Penny. I can tolerate it, it's just not that interesting and he just doesn't seem man enough for her. I mean, he did fine with that Stephanie chick and even he and Leslie were cute. Why does he have to get Penny?


They didn't work out last time solely because of her being offended about him giving her that community college info. They didn't work because they didn't work-They're awkward together and just don't have enough chemistry. Even that hug last season was so awkward. She probably kissed him because she's lonely.

p.s. Is it just me or did Sheldon look hawt with his beard? It doesn't suit Raj or the others, but it looks good on Sheldon.
Sep. 10th, 2009 01:20 am (UTC)
I'm on Twitter! :) Same username.

You don't find sheldon_penny friendly? Maybe it's just that I've been there a while and the people I interact with... Sorry, though. :(

Anyway, yeah. I just can't support L/P at all. And Sheldon was TOTALLY hawt. :D
Sep. 10th, 2009 01:42 am (UTC)
You don't find sheldon_penny friendly? Maybe it's just that I've been there a while and the people I interact with... Sorry, though. :(

I made an intro post and considering how opposed to the ship people are,you'd think they'd be more friendly. However,I got bitchness for no good reason. I'm new there and just got into the ship-How would I know anything?


I still can't even figure out how the breakdowns work,so I felt extremely unwelcome. :-/

It probably is because you've been there awhile and probably know everyone,but I'd like to think that since we're the "Pirate Ship", any and all people who see it would be welcome.

Sep. 10th, 2009 01:55 am (UTC)
AW! Now I feel bad that I don't usually respond to intro posts! (I never actually made one, the first thing I did was post a fic, so...) I always feel sorry for newbies to fandom -- we all were one once!

The Breakdowns are just arabian's specialty - she wanted to do a comprehensive look at each episode with all the S/P interaction and all the geeky references.

Sep. 10th, 2009 02:01 am (UTC)
It's okay-I don't really either unless they ask a question or seem cool,but it's unnecessary to be rude or mean. They have a thread on fanforum and even though I lurk,they're pretty friendly. Granted FF has rules,but still.

Not only am I a newbie,everyone I know thinks sitcom fic is weird and Sheldon/Penny is like Wendy/Cartman on South Park, only less weird, since SP is a cartoon and Cartman is a ginormous asshat. When you like obscure ships or stuff,you need other people to talk about it with.

I got so excited about my discovery and did a little happy dance, only to have some burst my bubble with glee.


I might look at the breakdowns again sometime,just because they're a lot to process,so maybe a slower, more thorogh look would have it make more sense.

Sep. 10th, 2009 01:56 am (UTC)
Anyway, yeah. I just can't support L/P at all. And Sheldon was TOTALLY hawt. :D

I'm kind of mad at Kaley-She said she wants L/P to be like Ross and Rachel and said that Penny would only date Sheldon in a "season 9 nightmare sequence", because "Penny would kill Sheldon".


I mean,we're just fans and no one can make Jim or Kaley support Sheldon and Penny,but Ross and Rachel? SERIOUSLY?!


I watch the show because it's hilarious and not because of shipperism,but if they turn Leonard and Penny into Ross and Rachel,I'm out. It's not because I'm a little kid who can't handle my uc ship never happening, it's because TBBT is not friends, Penny will become Yoko Ono and she'll break up the band, damnit.

Why oh why would the guys welcome her with open arms if she and Leonard keep hurting each other, jerking each other around or being off-on? It's not going to work,but Kaley is incorrect to assume that it would be great because "that's real life".

Um...most people get sick of being in on and off relationships after so many breakups. How the hell would the two of them be friends?


Also,I like Leonard,damnit. I don't want him to be an ass like Ross was and become unlikeable. I don't dig him and Penny because he's too passive and even Leslie was turned off that he wasn't man enough to stand up for her. He's still a great character and Penny is nothing like Rachel; the comparison is horrible.


Besides...Sheldon would never support any of that b.s. He already stated in canon that he's only ever approved of Stephanie,so why the hell would he put up with Penny and Leonard breaking up and making up? God, why would he still be her friend?

The show is adorable because the girl who's nothing like them adores a group of hardcore geeks and they worm their way into her heart. If they make it all about romance and L/P,it'll kill the show and piss off all the loyal Comic-Con people who showed up because of what the show says about geek culture.

Kaley's entitled to her opinion,but Penny wouldn't kill Sheldon, nor would it be a nightmare,because people change when they're dating. He'd never stop being anal or "Homo Novus", but he'd probably soften up and let her call him Moonpie or something along those lines.

They can't have him played "asexual" the entire time, nor can Penny be a waitress the entire series. Every sitcom has character growth and it's ridiculous to think Sheldon would be exactly the same forever. It's not a cartoon and it'll have to move forward eventually.
Sep. 10th, 2009 02:18 am (UTC)
Oh, yeah most people I know feel the same. :( You should have SEEN the Twitter explosion after that interview came out! I could hardly keep up. :O Will add you back on Twitter!
Sep. 10th, 2009 05:15 pm (UTC)
You should have SEEN the Twitter explosion after that interview came out! I could hardly keep up.

...........wait, what? :O


I mean,I'm glad and Kaley should know better than to piss of such a large fan base by not choosing words more carefully the way everyone else probably does,but I didn't hear about it.

Do you think you could link me?
Sep. 10th, 2009 08:47 pm (UTC)
Since none of the conversation used a hashtag, it would be pretty hard! But it was between several of around 35 Paradox members I follow on Twitter. And it happened on Tuesday afternoon/early evening. I can give you the usernames of the main players, if you like, and you can search backward through their updates? It would probably be time consuming, though.

If you start following some of the more active ppl, you'll never miss out on S/P news... But you may have trouble keeping up! I spend easily 1-2 hours combined per day reading and responding in between other stuff.
Sep. 10th, 2009 09:04 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I think I'd like the names. I just read a long thread on LJ and it was interesting to see everyone's opinions.

I mean,I don't know that I'll follow it rightthissecond, but I'd still like to read it when I have some time. Kaley's entitled to her opinion,but it was sort of offensive the way she responded.

I may have trouble,but I follow a lot of celebrity twitters, so they clog up most of my twitter space than my friends and family do.
Sep. 10th, 2009 10:11 pm (UTC)
The main names that I remember in the conversation (and I might forget some):

Sep. 10th, 2009 02:03 am (UTC)
Added you on Twitter, btw-I have the same username.
Feb. 16th, 2012 10:19 pm (UTC)
OMG I LOVE THIS GIF !!! :D It's perfect!
