five things #37

Five times Sam and Daniel went out together (five things they did as friends or on a "date").

1. they went to an art gallery showing a collection of nudes.
2. they went to see indiana jones and the kingdom of the chrystal skull.
3. they went to a poetry reading. daniel kept himself awake by mentally translating the poems in to goa'uld.
4. they went together to cassie's high school graduation.
5. they went out for pizza most saturday nights.

all of this lead some people at the sgc to speculate on whether or not "the wonder twins" were an item. they weren't.

book stuff

i always wanted to do this ever since i saw it on live journal, i promised myself that the next time i saw it, i'd do it.

1) Grab the book nearest to you (no cheating by grabbing a cool book!)
2) Open it to page 123 (so make sure it has at least that many pages!)
3) Count five sentences down
4) Post the next three sentences

the book is wolfking by bridget wood

"perhaps i should have run away." said portan, sitting up now, her eyes bright. "we talked of it sometimes--those of us who were only deformed in body and no in mind." "you were able to do so?" said amairgen, and was glad to think that she had been able to find a friend or two, kindred spirits in the gealtacht.

quiz: what color green are you?

You Are Emerald Green

Deep and mysterious, it often seems like no one truly gets you.

Inside, you are very emotional and moody - though you don't let it show.

People usually have a strong reaction to you... profound love or deep hate.

But you can even get those who hate you to come around. There's something naturally harmonious about you.

five things #36

Five conversations Mitchell and Jack never had.

*warning! character death*

over beers;
"general um, jack. i don't know if you two have a understanding or'd like to ask out sam sometime."
over the phone;
"yes general, i know it's been 6 months since daniel's been taken by adria." "no sir, still no sign of him. um....the reason i called is to say that general landry, under pressure from the I.O.A., has disbanded the search...."
in mitchell's hospital room (after he was shot down over antarctica);
"i'm sorry mitchell, despite all of the strings i've pulled, i can't get you the leadership of sg-1"
in the sgc cafeteria;
"i know they said it was a joke, but i have to know....are you my father?"
on PX4-037 under heavy fire;
"hold on, general. i want to see how bad you're hit." mitchell pulled back jack's bloody shirt. his right side looked like hamburger. why did he want to come on this mission anyway? cam wondered. and why did this mission, of all missions, go FUBAR? he leaned to sniff the wound & smelled bowel. damn!
"cameron?" jack rasped. "yes sir?" "i'm proud....of the job you've done....with sg-1." mitchell, who had opened his med kit & was pulling out gauze pads, muttered; "thanks." "tell....the others....that i'm proud of....them too." jack took a ragged breath. "tell sam....that i....i love her." "you can tell her yourself sir." mitchell told him, putting gauze pads on jack's wound, a futile effort. "i should've....told her....years ago...." jack took a shallow breath & let it out slowly. "general?....jack?!" shit!

girls and (video) games

there's this community on live journal called fandomsecrets. it's like post secret, but it's secrets about tv shows, movies, books & the like. anyway one secret was that a female in a video game forum had to hide her gender because the males don't take females who are "gamers" seriously. they think they only play "girly" games or are looking for attention.
personally i was never into video games. i play the occasional sports game and i was really into tetris & dr. mario for some reason. i live vicariously through my brother's playing. i give advice along the lines of "RUN! JUMP! DUCK! LOOK OUT!" i offer suggestions that he rarely takes and when he does, he never rarely says thank you.
it's the same for sci-fi, no girls allowed. if they watch a show or movie, it's only because there's a "cute" guy in it.
for the record i've never watched a tv show or movie for a "cute" guy. take star trek for instance; i watched TOS when i was like 5 or 6 & had no interest in that sort of thing. i'm not sure why i like it frankly, but i did. even as i got older, i didn't find any cute guys in it. (although i now think the McCoy was "easy on the eyes") the same for TNG & DS9. as for VOY it wasn't until season 5 that i found paris to be "interesting." ENT is a different story. i was a fan of scott bakula's from quantum leap & it was STAR TREK.
i was about 5 or 6 for for voyagers! (sic), a tv show you've probaly never heard of, & it started my love for time travel.
for star wars. i was fascinated by this movie that everyone talked for years. i finally saw SW: an new hope on tv (with commercials) then a few years later i watched TESB & ROTJ back-to-back on cable. the last hour of which i had to pee so bad that i nearly passed out. i was like 10. it wasn't until later on i came to "appreciate" han solo.
stargate i'll freely admit i got into because of RDA (he was macgyver for crying out loud!) but if the stories weren't interesting i'm telling you right now i wouldn't have watched beyond the 3rd episode. it was later on that i found o'neill to be "interesting" & as for jackson, it wasn't until season 8.

blog change & westerns

first; i'm changing the banner to a DS9 one i snagged from somewhere.

second; we're renting the wild, wild west TV show from netflix. vastly superior to the movie a "what the f**k they were thinking?!" if i ever saw one. we seem to be on a western kick lately. we rented support your local sheriff not too long ago.
