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*

star wars


the 30th anniversary of star wars was on may 25 & i forgot to post about it!
(bad star wars fan! bad!)
anyway, 30 years! it seems like last week it was the 20th anniversary. (yes, i saw the special additions. have them on tape too) they still hold up as cinema classics IMHO. something that will be tested on the afi 100 years, 100 movies special on wednesday.
can you believe that there are people on this planet who haven't seen star wars?!
here's the link to a story on a first-time star wars viewer

EDIT: han shot first, damn it!

some things about me


i try to keep myself to myself (did that make sence?)
anyway, here's some stuff about me.

  1. i H-A-T-E fruit in jello. i'm not a big fan of jello to start with, but put fruit in it & that's a deal breaker. an don't get me started on "jello salads"
  2. on the subject of food; i HATE creamed corn, peas & most vegetables. mostly i'm a meat & potatoes gal. or is that hamburger & fries?
  3. i don't like dogs for the most part, i prefer the company of cats. i've "known" 1 or 2 good dogs in my time, but still not a fan of dogs. maybe it's because i was bitten by one when i was 6.
  4. i read a LOT. well over 400 books in my life. mostly star trek, star wars & mysteries. i went through a "teen romance" phase & a sweet valley phase (all the series) but am TOTALLY over them (thank the gods)
  5. i've been a star trek fan for as long as i can remember. i watched TOS in reruns & recall looking forward to TNG ("hey! Q's eugene from days of our lives!") i watched stargate: sg-1 from the start (didn't see the movie until about 2 years in. it was ok) i started watching it because rda was in it & continued because the stories were good.
  6. i don't have political opinions or try not to. because if you voice them it leads to trouble more often than not. (see: rosie on the view)
that's enough to qualify for "some" IMHO.

new addition to blog

you may have noticed a new addition to this blog; a picture under the header. at first i tried to get one from my imageshack account, but it didn't work. then i got one from my computer file (the one you see) but that puts the picture behind the words in the header, not under them like i thought. you can remove the words, but i guess that's only good if your picture has the words you want on it. AAAARRRRRGGGGG!!!! so then my brother did some arranging of the template & the result is what you see.
BTW that banner was made my my brother at my request because of stargate sg-1's "non renewal." cool, huh? i used it as my signature at the bboards of scifi.com for a while. i might change it at a later date.
