quiz: what ancient language are you?


Your Score: Hieroglyphics


You scored




You are Egyptian Hieroglyphics! Monumental, ornate and even in technicolour! Your users contributed virtually all ancient knowledge on inks, dyes and writing surfaces - to the point where the popular reed of Papyrus became the universal name for organic, manufactured writing surfaces in the western hemisphere for thousands of years. Proud, upstanding and dignified.

memorial day 2008

as always a time to remember, not just BBQ.
so here's to those who served, those currently serving & those who will serve in the future.

BTW don't drink & drive this holiday (or any other time) & remember that "buzzed" driving is the same as drunk driving.

we'll never make it on the food network


so my mother got it into her head to make rice crispy treats, but with melted chocolate rather than marshmallows. so she gets the giant box of r. crispies & a bag of chocolate chips. plus a big bag of mini marshmallows to make the regular ones.
in the we got to work greasing a 13x9 baking pan with butter. and following the directions, melted the butter & then all of the marshmallows in a large ceramic roasting pot in the microwave. we quickly stirred crispies, shoved the stuff in the baking ban. batch #1 complete.
for batch #2 butter & chocolate were melted and a goodly amount of crispies were added. a problem quickly appeared; not enough chocolate. PANIC! a quick trip to the store provided the solution in the form of more marshmallows and for some reason another bag of chocolate. the marshmallows were added and melted an put into another pan. with the result of a s'more like concoction. it was good. so we have a bag of chocolate & some leftover marshmallows. will there be a sequel?

five things #42

Five things Vala most regrets Qetesh did while occupying her.

1. the torture. it's necessary to keep them in line. qetesh told her. but why did she often do it in front of the victim's families?
2. the destruction of a planet. usually when the naquadah ran out. especially since the people were often still on it.
3. the rape. qetesh saw it as seduction, but the person didn't have a choice. it was "do or die."
4. the killing. usually it was if the person didn't please her in bed. other killings she had her first prime do.
5. the terror. she park her ship in orbit over a planet, unload the death gliders & grin as the planet's leaders begged for mercy. when she got tired of them "sniveling & wetting their pants" she'd threaten to come back and wipe them out for no reason they could figure out. then pack up and move on.

saturdays

this is what my brother said to me just a few moments ago;
"remember when saturday was your friend? you looked forward to saturday morning cartoons. ghostbusters & whatnot. now it's stabbed you in the back and joined forces with monday."

to quote firefly; "curse your sudden, but inevitable betrayal."

IT'S A MIRACLE!! (sort of)

yesterday we went to wash some clothes & towels at a laundromat in town. somehow we left a load of clothes there. we just wrote them off. most hare second-hand anyway.
today we went back into town for some stuff. i had this feeling that we should check the laundromat, just to see if they were there. low and behold, there they were! on top of the bigger washers. (you know what people do) they were still wet, so we threw them in a dryer for a while & took them home.
three cheers for women's intuition!!
