quiz: what season are you?




You Belong in Fall



Intelligent, introspective, and quite expressive at times...

You appreciate the changes in color, climate, and mood that fall brings

Whether you're carving wacky pumpkins or taking long drives, autumn is a favorite time of year for you

five things #33


2 books & 3 magazines sam wouldn't want anyone on her team to find at her house

the 2 books:
pride & prejudice. yes, she pictures herself as elizabeth bennet.
little women. some part of sam wanted sisters.

the 3 magazines:
cosmopolitan. she reads it for the articles on sex. sadly she rarely gets to test those theories.
glamour. because sam doesn't live in BDUs.
brides. because maybe, someday......

the oscars

more commonly known as the academy awards were on last night. which is why i'm so tired today. it was an ok show. kind of thrown together at the last minute because the writers strike ended just a couple of weeks ago. it was a foreign invasion of sorts because the the actor categories were won by non-american people. my fave moment is when the host brought out the female half of the writing team for best song because she didn't get a chance to say anything when she won. then later he said what they did back stage after winning. him: "lets make them (the statuettes) kiss." her: "but they're men." him: "well, it's hollywood." LOL

fan confessions: pt. 3


this one is about star wars.
  • in the middle of all that action/adventure was the love story of han & leia. it got snuck in when no one was looking. very sneaky mr. lucas
  • i never noticed how clean everyone/thing is in ROTJ until i read it somewhere. now i notice it all the time.
  • as much as i like the millennium falcon, it's an odd design. the cockpit is on the side of the front for crying out loud!
  • han shot first! i'll believe that until my dying day.
  • jar-jar could've been worse.
  • i liked the ewoks.
  • i liked the music they originally had at the end of ROTJ.
  • i didn't like the fact that the ending of the DVD version of ROTJ was changed it have young anikin instead of the old one. he was old when he died. they still had old ben & yoda.
  • the costumes for amadala in episode 1 were too much IMHO.
  • i wish the special editions had translations for the aliens & r2-d2

fan confessions: pt. 2


this is the star trek instalment, not doubt it will be a long one. as there are 5 series & 10 movies. these aren't going to be in series order, more of a stream of consciousness kind of thing.
  • i never thought that kirk & spock were so great. i'm starting to think that mccoy was though.
  • i'm glad that riker and troi got together. now that i think about it, they were my first ship.
  • the death scene in the wrath of khan still gets to me.
  • i got choked up when the enterprise was destroyed on the search for spock.
  • but i didn't too much when the enterprise-d was in generations. it wasn't the enterprise of my childhood.
  • i think that voyager was underappreciated.
  • i think that kes got the short end of the stick.
  • i wonder what would've happened with yar if crosby didn't quit TNG.
  • sometimes i think that DS9 was too heavy.
  • i didn't think that the search for spock, the final frontier, generations & insurrection were so bad.
  • i think if ENT had been delayed a year & had new people at the "helm," it could've went for the full 7 years.
  • i don't like nemsis & will never watch it again.
  • i hated the "big shoulder" look the romulans had in TNG & for a while in DS9.
  • i thought that wesley wasn't so bad.
  • i think that they made sisko "hawk in space" on the later seasons of DS9. he even had the same look.

fan confessions


on some live journal blogs they are doing post secret style confessions about their fan fic or what they think about a series. i liked the ide so i stole it borrowed it without permission. so here's the first instalment about stargate. since most of the ones i read were about that series.

  • i started watching sg-1 for jack, ended up sometimes watching for daniel. i ocasionaly feel guilty about that.
  • i hate that they changed the wormhole to the one they use for atlantis. it's a different galaxy, it should be a different wormhole.
  • i hate the fact that the goa'uld talk "normal" sometimes. they are goa'uld, they are supposed to sound different.
  • i don't like vala. i never will. i don't like her pig tails or the stupid white streaks she had in her hair. i don't like her attitude. i wish they never made her a part of the team. i really don't like that she might have a relationship with daniel in the movies. if amanda tapping wasn't pregnant at the start of season 9, she wouldn't be there.
  • i miss jonas quinn.
  • i hated the final episode & will never watch it again.
  • i'm not too happy with what they did with sam, but at least she's there. kicking ass & saving the day.
  • i can't get into SGA.
  • i have a (not so) secret desire to see a musical episode of stargate. i think it would work out in a way that a star trek one couldn't hope for.

five things #32


Three photographs on Jack's mantel, one in his wallet, and one hidden in his bedroom.

the 3 on the mantel:
a "team photo" taken at a 4th of july picnic.
his graduation photo from the air-force academy.
a photo of cassie with the frame that she gave every member of sg-1 her first christmas on earth.

the 1 in his wallet:
a picture of the first person killed under his command. so he's reminded to never let his guard down.

the 1 hidden in his bedroom:
his son at age 6. it's a school photo & jack can't get over how much charlie looked like himself at that age.

getting the band back together

this is a different take on the "random wikipedia articals band stuff" idea.

1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.
(I think you have to click '10 new random quotations' at the bottom of the page to get something different)

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

not very good IMHO

five things #31


Five things Daniel won't miss when he finally leaves the SGC.

1. the coffee in the cafferteria. actually all of the cafferteria food.
2. the blaring alarm that announces an incoming wormhole.
3. how nasty some of the gossips can be.
4. the inadequate little library set up for the people there. for when he wanted something non-work related to read.
5. the feeling of dread that would sometimes come over him for no apparent reason.

BTW there's another "anonymous" posting at the site now

superbowl 2008

THE GIANTS WON!!!!!

i usually root for the underdog anyway, but the patriots were arrogant asses this year. or maybe they have been for a while & i haven't noticed. now i'll admit that i don't follow football (or sports in general) too closely. but when someone want's to copyright 19-0 because they're so confident that they'll win. or record the other team's signals to figure out what they're saying, makes them the bad guys in my book. their whole season should have a notation (an asterisk) that at least one of their wins was achieved by shady (if not illegal) means.

3. something about jello & wrestling?
4. some kind of movie about a war among the stars.
5. a place called vegas
