please don't drink & drive. and remember; the "buzzed" driving is as bad as drunk driving.

quiz: what magical symbol is connected to you?



An orb is the magical symbol that connects with you. Time after time, we associate orbs with reading the future and mysterious gypsies. Well, because of this stereotype, orbs do represent a high factor of wisdom, but at the same time, their shape and elegance bring upon a new aspect of fascination and interest. Beautiful, solid and graceful, orbs have been carried on through centuries, and to this day still remain as a strong symbol of mystical magic.Happy quizilling,Goddess

the 5th harry potter movie

warning! spoilers for the 5th harry potter movie & book. possible spoilers for the other movies/books



yesterday i saw the 5th harry potter movie & it was great! a damn good book too. however, 4-7 should come with a hanky warning for the end.
of course it couldn't cover what the book did, that would be a 9 hour movie. for example: the whole hermione crusade to liberate the house elves plot thread was dropped.
i didn't like the fact that cho change was made the informer of the group (even though a potion was used on her) in the book it was a friend of her's. but it's better for the character than crying over cedric (her boyfriend who was killed at the end of 4) like in the book.
they keep talking about you-know-who causing trouble 14 years ago. but harry's about 16 & i thought he was just an infant when all of that happened. but i suppose he could've been a bit older.
i like the little thing with hermione's cat playing with fred & george's "extendable ears" but it would've made more sense, IMHO. to mention that the weasley twins went into a joke/prank business with harry's winnings from the wizard tournament in 4.
they made sure that kreacher didn't look like doby lest you tink that all house elves look alike. they should've explained that the woman's voice that he was talking to was the picture of sirius' mother. a anti-mugle.
evanna lynch was wonderful as luna, just what you expect. i wonder if she sounds that way in real life? or was it something for the movie?
helena bonham carter chew the scenery for the brief time she was there. i don't mean that as something negative, you expect secene-chewing from bad guys.
i don't know why people are going on about natalia tena as tonks. she had all of maybe 6 lines. and honestly didn't strike me as something great.
michael gambon was good as dumbledore. nothing against him, but i will always see richard harris in the role. his granddaughter called that one right.

unintended dirty moment: when fred & george apperaite behind their mother: "just because you're old enough, dosen't mean you can whip out your wands when ever you want!" (or something. you get the gist)

five things #19

Five SG-1 team nights (in or out).

1. they had a welcome-to-the-sgc thing at o'malley's for mitchell that nearly got out of hand when some drunk guy told teal'c that star wars was "a stupid movie"
2. jack tried to do monthly poker night at his place for sg-1 when he could.
3. they had an occasional "movie & pizza" night at sam's.
4. whenever they had to "pull an all nighter" someone (usually jack) would "stage a raid" on the cafferteria for stuff to make sandwiches with.
5. the "guys" would go along with sam to the big sales at the mall because she usually didn't have anyone to go with. she would always buy them a beer afterwards.

well that's odd

i was sort of watching pirate's of the caribbean: at world's end last night. my mom & brother were watching it while i was on the computer. lame-ass ending by the way. anyhow, that reminded me of a dream that i had after sort of watching the last POTC movie.

in this dream i was a cousin of elizabeth's who was causing trouble because i didn't want to wear a corset or marry who my parents wanted me to marry. somehow i ended up on the same ship as elizabeth & captain jack. for some reason he let me hold that compass that points to what you want the most. the needle was spinning around & around. "you're confused. you don't know what you want." the captain told me. then the needle stopped & was pointing northwest. "but whatever it is, it's to the northwest." he amended. then he took the compass away from me & walked off. i woke up after that.

that's was an odd one & not just because of the POTC thing. what would be in the north west? if you're in the U.S. (like i am) it's seattle or vancouver Canada. if you're in australia, there's not much in the northwest. if you're en europe, england is the northwest. so i'm almost just as confused as i was in the dream.
the only thing that comes to mind is i'd like to go to a big stargate convention that creation (or someone) has up there in vancouver every year.

quiz: what kind of pie are you?

You Are Apple Pie

You're the perfect combo of comforting and traditional.
You prefer things the way you've always known them.
You'll admit that you're old fashioned, and you don't see anything wrong with that.
Your tastes and preferences are classic. And classic never goes out of style.

Those who like you crave security.
People can rely on you to be true to yourself - and true to them.
You're loyal, trustworthy, and comfortable in your own skin.
And because of these qualities, you've definitely earned a lot of respect.

Five things Vala has stolen on Earth.

1. a bathrobe from a hotel in washington d.c. from when she testified to keep the stagate program going.
2. a napkin from the fancy restaurant daniel took her to in memento mori.
3. t.p. from every public bathroom she's been in. and she can't figure out why
4. sweetener from starbuck's. she likes it better than what's on the base.
5. an occasional artifact from daniel's office. it reminds her of what she often did in the past. vala always returns the stuff, so she sees it as "borrowing without permission"

some changes & a random thought

i put a new banner at the top. star trek: enterprise that i snagged/snurched from somewhere.



i added a scrolling video thing at the bottom of the blog.
i named the area where i have a link to answers.com (& hope to add more)
and for a limited time, a link to the people's choice awards at the top.

the random thought:
i'll never be a "blog of note" here at blogger.com, probably because i never say anything interesting. if you think i do, comment. you can be "anonymous" i just have to approve it first.

five things #15

Five times Daniel danced in front of his teammates.

1. in various tribal ceremonies on more planets than anyone wants to think about. sometimes half-naked.
2. once when urgo was in their heads. urgo didn't like the way daniel danced.
3. when machello took over daniel's body. of course sg-1 didn't know it wasn't "daniel" at the time.
4. when they went back to 1969. the night they had dinner with the hippies. which lead jack to think they put something in the food.
5. about 5 years after being stuck on the odyssey vala put together a party to take everyone's minds off of things. mitchell had made some "home brew" & daniel thought "what the hell" & had some. he danced to the motown music that vala had playing. he told everyone how much he loved them & missed jack. he told them it was his fault for bringing the ori to this galaxy & not finding a way to stop them. he cried after that & had to be put to bed. daniel didn't remember anything in the morning and no one ever, in all of those long, empty years, brought it up again. now teal'c is the the only one to remember and he will never say a word.


this is the only one from this set of "prompts"

halloween 2007

halloween is the worse night for drunk driving accidents? even more than christmas or new years. according to the national highway traffic safety administration 41% of all traffic accidents on halloween night involved a driver with higher than legal blood alcohol limit. so keep that in mind. also remember that "buzzed" driving is the same as drunk driving.

{end of public service announcement}

so go, have fun & don't eat too much candy.

five things #14


Besides having a son, five things Jack and Daniel's parents had in common.

1. both sets of parents belonged to "the fruit of the month club." in both cases it was a christmas present.
2. they met their future spouses in places where few people go. daniel's parents met in a library basement where the old & rare books were stored. jack's on a small mountain in a state park.
3. both sets of parents went to yard sales on the weekends in the summer.
4. they all got along with any in-laws that there were.
5. they were married on the same day, but daniel's parents were married in greece & didn't get the proper papers for americans getting married in a foreign country so it wasn't legal. they did get married as soon as they came back to the states though.

thinking of you

there's a poster on the sg-1 board at scifi.com that i know. (as well as you can know a person on-line, i guess) anyway, she's been suspended for five days. no one's exactly sure why & we're all afraid to ask.
i'm not sure if she reads this blog (i have the link in my signature there) but if she does i'd like to say that our little group over there misses you & thinks of you often.
which you know if you've been reading the posts over there. i thought i'd just put it out there.

Five things Jacob and Selmak disagreed about.

1. american sports. selmak didn't see the point. on most planets the loosing team in such a competition was executed.
2. food. slemak thought jacob ate too much of the wrong kinds when he visited earth.
3. movies. jacob liked old westerns & war movies. selmak preferred documentaries.
4. jacob's children. selmak had been a parent by way of a host several times & had experience that jacob often refused to listen to.
5. TV. selmak didn't care too much for it, but found the infomercials interesting. jacob thought that they were garbage.

Five true things about Sam Carter that she doesn't know about herself.

five things #10


Five times Sam dreamed about Daniel.

1. after seeing him in the flag after he de-acended the second time. these were of the x-rated nature.
2. several times when he was ascended the first time. he'd tell her to help jonas adjust to earth.
3. after being injured when the prometheus was attacked & she hallucinated grace. sam had odd dreams about all of sg-1 for a month after that. mostly of jack.
4. while she was working at area-51. she dreamed about their lunches together. sam missed those.
5. the night before she agreed to go to the sgc. she had no idea who he was, but when she saw daniel's picture in his file sam knew she HAD to accept the assignment.

blog changes

a new banner. a super star destroyer. i don't know where i found it, but it's cool. IMHO




a answers.com thing that allows you to find the meaning of any word on this blog. just double-click the word & presto!
several posts now have labels now to find thing more easily. see box on the right. some could be crossed indexed. some quizzes are stargate related & all of the "five things" are.

quiz: which member of the a-team are you?

I am Murdock


They call him "Howling Mad" and with good reason. Once a top notch pilot, the pressures of war left Murdock mad. He is known for his smirk, variety of personas and overall mental instability. When he isn't spending time institutionalized, Murdock is using his flying skills for the A-Team, driving B.A. nuts and talking to his imaginary dog.


Which A-Team member are you???

five things #9


Five times Jack was glad he wasn't going on missions anymore.

1. when vala stuck around. jack was sure he would've smacked her.
2. the mission with the galarans memory device. there are many things he'd rather forget.
3. when all of those sg teams from other universes came through the gate. jack didn't think he could handle all of those versions of himself. especially those that still had families.
4. dealing with the ori. all of those religious fanatics set his teeth on edge.
5. eating weird food & sucking-up to the leaders of various worlds. actually he still has to do that sometimes in washington d.c.

the emmys

they were on last night, i don't know why i watch these kind of things but yet i do watch.
first; the host (that guy who hosts american idol) did ok, no one wants to do these things anymore. one of the truly thanksless jobs in show business.
second; the set stcked big time. it was "in the round" which meens that the stage is in the middle & everyone has seats around it. the presenters only faced one way. making for a crappy view for those in the back. or as (winner for best actor in a drama) james spader said "i've been to 1,000s of conserts in my life & these are the worse seats i've ever had." the whole thing was suspose to be enviromently friendly. here's an idea; the host said that 65,000 people where there. everyone buys a carbon credit & they don't have to do that crap next year.

stargate season 10

i have been watching season 10 episodes (thanks to netflix) with my brother. my mom isn't usually interested, but today she watched the last 1/3 of bounty & all of bad guys with us. a few minutes into bad guys she says; "he looks familiar" about ms. i explained he was on an episode of csi: miami & i always point him out as someone from stargate. a few moments latter she remarks again how he looks familiar & asks if any to the actors are from the movie. i explain that daniel is the same character & about the 2 actors/characters who were on the show, but aren't on any more. i also explain the ms was chosen for the part because he looked like james spader. my mom looks at me like that the craziest thing that she ever heard. i then launch into a brief thing of how he tried to sound like him in the early years, but i eventually gave up. i then mention how some fans want ms to be on boston legal as spaders' brother. she looks at me like that's the second craziest thing she's heard, shakes her head and says; "his 4th or 5th cousin maybe"


i posted this on the sg-1 board at scifi.com & thought it would be an interesting post for here.

Five places on Earth that Teal'c wants to visit.

1. vatican city. to see what the big deal is about the pope.
2. hawaii. to see this thing called "a bikini" first-hand.
3. las vegas. because jack says he should go.
4. the library of congress. just so, hopefully, daniel will shut up about it.
5. the swiss alps. because they remind him of a place on his home world.

"that day"


yes, it's september 11th again. a tuesday. the day it happened.
like when j.f.k was shot, everyone remembers where they were when it all happened. i hadn't turned on the tv yet & had just turned it on & saw the news report. i thought it was an accident, the towers being hit. i had heard just a couple of weeks earlier that small planes were having trouble with their gyroscopes or something & were crashing. i couldn't imagine that anyone would do this on propose. i was wrong. as a guy on fox news said: "these bastards knew what they were doing"
we had both televisions on and were going back and fourth between new channels & my brother and i would relay info to each other and our parents. "a plane hit the pentagon!"a plane hit the ground in pennsylvania" "a tower fell!" "now the other one has gone." it got to be too much & we turned the tv off for the rest of the day. some radio stations had the sense to go back to music & one said "the only thing good about today is the weather" network news anchors stayed on the air for days. it wasn't necessary IMHO. nothing wasn't said that couldn't be said by the back-up guy. my brother said that poor peter jennings fell asleep on the air.
almost immediately the conspiracies started. some ridiculous things that i won't repeat here. the worse part, is that these people tried to shove their theories down our throats. for the longest time on youtube there were all of these 9/11 conspiracy vids. some tried to trick you into watching. others said what they were. i watched a brief one once. a guy misspoke in an interview & said a missile hit the pentagon, then he corrected himself and said a plane did. big, fat, hairy deal! he misspoke! this is not "proof" give it up already! i don't think this is "helping the terrorists" but it's not helping anyone else either.
there is some good from this; people are now dooing good deeds on this day, but you should do that every day IMHO.

Five odd jobs Jack had when he was a teenager, and how the experiences came in handy when he was on SG-1.

age 13: delivering newspapers. it helped him become an early-riser & to keep going no matter what. through bad weather & even when he didn't feel like it.
age 15: sweeping up hair in a barbershop. he learned to keep his ears open. that ANY piece of info could be important, no matter how insignificant it seemed when he first heard it.
age 16: doing odd-jobs at a veterinary clinic. it helped him to adjust to death. not necessarily to accept it, just to understand that's it's a part of life.
age 18: delivering pizzas. he learned about human nature. to watch for people trying to stiff you on the price & who would be the big tippers.
age 19: busing tables at a nightclub. he got his sense of humor by watching the stand-up comics. he learned how to fight by dealing with the drunks on the bouncer's night off.

quiz: what finger are you?

You Are the Thumb

You're unique and flexible. And you defy any category.
Mentally strong and agile, you do things your own way. And you do them well.
You are a natural leader... but also truly a loner. You inspire many but connect with few.

You get along well with: The Middle Finger

Stay away from: The Pinky



getting along with the middle finger? i wonder what it would say for that result?

monday the 13th

most people don't know this, but monday the 13s can be as bad as their friday counterparts. just ask garfield the cat.
the worst monday the 13th that i remember was in march a couple of years ago. my mom got sick, then later that day my brother did. i got sick the next day with the same flu-like thing. just slept, went to the bathroom & drank water for 3 or 4 days. didn't even think about eating. the sickness made us drag our asses for a month or so. and it seemed like some kind of recurrence happened a month or so later.

five things #4


Five languages Daniel doesn’t know (and why)

1. Xhosa. all of those clicks confused him.
2. swahili. it has no diphthongs; in vowel combinations, each vowel is pronounced separately. for some reason, that bothered him.
3. Hindi. he just never got the hang of it.
4. pig-latin. daniel doesn't consider it to be an actual language.
5. klingon. see above reason.


what's interesting is that everyone who responded to the "prompt" put klingon as an answer. (all of the responses are revealed at once) star trek is everywhere

five things #3

Five times Janet was really surprised during a post-mission physical.

1. she's used to seeing tattoos resulting from off-world partying, but she was REALLY surprised to see her name on jack's ass after one mission.
2. finding pink fungal growth on daniel's feet after coming back from that world in fire & water.
3. sg-6 developed a green tint for a few days once. no one ever did figure out why.
4. sam was pregnant once, but the alien genetics broke down. ok, she wasn't really THAT surprised.
5. sg-3 spontaneously sang happy birthday to her when she walked in to the infirmary. the REAL surprise was her birthday wasn't for another week. she didn't say anything, she thought it was sweet.

five things


someone started this "5 things" about stargate. i guess it was designed to inspire fanfics. but people use them to "flesh out" some back story for the series.
i stumbled across the site & will add it to my favorites. the official name of the site is the pentangular gate. (pentangular means Of or relating to or shaped like a pentagon. which i don't think it was) but in the favorite links list i'm calling it the five things site.
i did one al ready (as anonymous) & i probably do others. i'll post those later.

the epilogue


spoilers for #7 of harry potter



last night j.k. rowelling was on dateline. she talked about the book & about the epilogue. plus some things she didn't put in. so here's my opinion on that.

what's in the book is this color.
what she said last night is this color.
and what i think happened is this color.

i'm done with the potter book


spoilers for the last potter book!



they had a BIG battle at hogwarts. you-know-who called a cease fire & told them to hand over harry. of course they didn't. the battle then continues. during this time they (H, R & HR) went to where he was. y-k-w had the wand that's one of the hollows. since snape killed dumbledore the wand's loyalty is the one who won it from it's previous owner. y-k-w does killing spell on him & after he leaves harry coms to him & snape gives him memories before dies. (if you've seen/read #4 you know what i mean) in these harry sees that snape has been in love with his mother for years & was really just misunderstood and wanted to be accepted. [kind of like darth vader] dumbledore was going to dieing anyway. when y-k-w tried to kill him as a baby, part of his (y-k-w's) got into harry, making him one of the things that has to be destroyed to kill y-k-w.
harry goes to find y-k-w (after telling his friend nevill that the snake y-k-w has must die) & discovers what was in the snitch, a stone (that's one of the soul pieces which dumbledore destroyed) that can, with limits, bring back the dead. his parents, god father & friend (the werewolf from #3) walk with him to the confrontation. harry let's y-k-w strike him dead, but he's not quite. as a piece of the baddie's soul is in a snake. he sees dumbledore & is told pretty much everything. he chooses to go back.
harry "plays dead" & is taken back to hogwarts. y-k-w gloats, but his magic doesn't work well on the defenders of hog warts. harry "makes his move" & the fight is rejoined. nevill kills the snake & reinforcements come in the form of friends & family of the defenders as well as many magical creatures. harry & y-k-w finally square off. hary tells y-k-w that the wand doesn't work well for him because snape didn't "win" it from dumbledore, draco did. since harry defeated him the wand will work for harry. y-k-w doesn't believe him & strikes with the killing spell at the same moment harry uses a disarming spell. the killing spell is reflected back to y-k-w & kills him. harry goes to to the haedmaster's office & talks to the dumbledore painting. he keeps the invisibility cloak (inherited & one of the hallows) returns the want to dumbledore's tomb. since harry didn't kill to get it & if no one kills him to get it, it won't be as powerful as it was. the stone was dropped in the dark forest (or whatever it is) so no one should find it.
the epilogue is 19 years later harry as married ron's sister & they have 3 kids. the oldest 2 (boys) are going of to hogwarts (the younger's first time) he's worried about being placed in slytherin (the house where most of the baddies go) harry tells him not to worry, he can choose to be in another. he sees them, as well as his friend's kids (ron & hermoninie got married [R & HR shippers rejoice]) off. he knows they'll be fine. [some people think the epilogue felt tacked-on. i agree, but i like it. i hope they'll keep it for the movie]

well that's over. [kind of releived, kind of sad] now i can go back to my semi-happy, semi-safe world of star trek novels, murder mysteries & the occasional fantasy world novel.

potter update


SPOILERS FOR HARRY POTTER #7!!



i only read 9 more chapers. *UGH!* mostly because i felt blah.
the search for the piece of the soul of you-know-who continues. what the "deathly hallows" are was reveled. [i like how rowlling worked in a fairy tale in the middle of all of this] they (H, R & HR) went to visit luna lovegood's [love these names] father & almost got caught by death eaters. harry became obsessed about finding "the hallows" & said you-know-who's name (it had been enchanted so as to find people) they got captured & taken to the baddie's headquarters. bad stuff happens & they are rescued by dobby the house elf (who's killed in the process) *sob, sniffle*
they others recover & harry figures out that there's a soul-piece at gringots (the wizard's bank) the break-in with the help of a gremlin (or something) that got rescued along with them. all kinds of crap happened & the little bugger turned on them [BIG surprise *roll eyes*] they escaped thanks to the help of a dragon that guards the bank. they are now at hogwarts and what's left of dumbledore's army wants to help fight the big fight.

more on potter #7


spoilers for the 7th potter book!



i've read 14 chapters since the last post. and instead of trying to remember all the stuff i want to say & do a post at the end of it, i'll do one a day for as long as i'm reading it. (if i remember)
they're (harry, hermineie, & ron) are out looking for the pieces of you-know-who's soul that he's divided & put into common objects. there are 7 in all. 2 have been destroyed at this point. dumbledore left them stuff in his wil. ron got a gadget that takes lights & put's them back. harry got the first snitch he ever got in a game & gryphindore's sword.
hermineie got a book of nursery rhymes written in runes.
they found one piece of soul in a locket, but had no idea how to destroy it. ron got mad & left. the 2 left went to the village where harry's parents were killed & were nearly caught by you-know-who. ron came back [i knew he would] the light gadget helped him find them again. [i won't get in to how] they found the sword of
gryphindore & ron destroyed the locket. [i won't get in to why it was him]
anyway that's more or less where i am now. i can't wait to see what goes on next.

"the book"


(some spoilers for harry potter 7)



i'm referring of course to the 7th harry potter book. i broke down and bought it at wal-mart (only $17.78)

i started reading it this morning. as of now i've just finished the 6th chapter. a somewhat minor character has died (mad-eye) and another has been (george) mangled. & they killed harry's owl!
lupin (form book #3) & tonks got married. bill (ron's brother) & fleur (from the #4 book) got married, but the party was crashed by death eaters. forcing harry, ron & hermonie to go on their quest a little earlier than planed. luckily hermonie enchanted a bag to carry a bunch of stuff, including a tent.

quiz: which tarot card are you?


You are The High Priestess


Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.


The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

my brother's b-day


it's my brother's birthday!
this is a rather unusual fellow (let's face it, we're all unusual). an Anime (he i did it right!) expert (he will dispute this, but he knows more than i do), with the same kind of humor that i have. (most of the time) we like the same things mostly, even though i like star trek & stargate sg-1 a little better that he does, i think.
i was very young when he was born & i was told "you'll get use to him." it's been 28 years, i'm wondering when this is going to happen. (just kidding dude)
he always says that no one "good" was born on his birthday. well here are a few that i think are "good"

Giuseppe Piazzi (he discovered 1st asteroid; Ceres)
Roald Amundsen (the first to get to the south pole)
barbara stanwyck (actress)
ginger rogers ( fred astair's partner. she did everything he did, but backwards & in high heals)
bess myerson (the first jewish miss america)

this day in history:
1790: Washington, D.C., was established by Congress as the capital of the United States.
1808: Lewis and Clark help form Missouri Fur Company
1926: National Geographic takes 1st natural-color undersea photos
1956: Last Ringling Bros, Barnum & Bailey Circus under a canvas tent
1969: Apollo 11 departs Earth. will land on the moon 4 days later
1970: Pittsburgh Pirates replaces Forbes Field with 3 River Stadium

so "little brother" there you have it. i hope the coming year is better than last year & well, that's about it. sorry that i couldn't get you a better present. maybe next year.

friday the 13th update

we survived!!!!!

i ended up with a big headache just before i went to be though. but the next day my brother cut himself on the pull-top from a can of corn. right hand, middle finger & right on the joint where it bends down on the underside of the finger!!!!
yikes and ouch!
we believe it's some kind of holdover from "the bad luck day"

friday the 13th!

tomorrow is one of those dreaded days. believe in it or not, it's friday the 13. some stuff happens to my family on those days. i don't know if it's because of the day or we somehow bring it on ourselves by thinking that way.
i'm not sure if i should go on-line tomorrow. hopefully if i do, the fates will be kind.
monday the 13th isn't good either. (just ask garfield the cat) a couple of years ago my mom, brother & i got sick on a monday the 13th in march & were sick as dogs for a week. and basicaly felt like crap for weeks afterward.

BTW both star trek 10 & the last episode of star trek: enterprise were on a friday the 13th.
make of that what you will.

stargate sg-1 ends tonight



i'm not sure how i feel. kind of numb i guess. 1} i can't believe it's been 10 years. 2} i won't get to see season 10 for a while, because i don't have a dish or cable. i can only wait to rent the DVDs from netflix. *sigh*
