what holliday drink are you?

You Are Cider
Your holiday personality is cozy.
The holidays are your favorite time to stay home, stay warm, and spend time with those you love.

You don't need a lot to make you happy over the holidays.
Seeing an old relative or favorite holiday film is enough to make your day.

thanksgiving dinner test

You Are Traditional
You are old fashioned and consistent. You don't think there is much wrong with the past, and you are slow to change.
You think the holidays should be all about family, gratitude, and traditions.

You dislike any part of the holidays that is too commercial. You think that too much is made about spending money.
Instead, you like to focus on the spiritual and nostalgic elements of this time of year. It's a time of love and remembering.

this is making me hungry.

Monday, November 11, 2013

what's your thanksgiving personality?

Your Thanksgiving Personality is Rebel
You detest Thanksgiving. All that family drama mixed with unappetizing side dishes? No thank you!
You'll make an appearance if you absolutely have to, but you won't enjoy it. You probably don't even like pumpkin pie.

Your ideal Thanksgiving would be spent completely alone... or with the few people that you can tolerate.
You'd eat whatever you want - even in front of the TV if you felt like it. And there's a good chance you wouldn't be eating sweet potatoes with marshmallow. Gag!

i'm not quite that bad.

burger king's big king

BK has this new sandwich called the big king. which is basically a big mac wanna-be.
so my dad, brother & i tried it tonight. (dad was a surprise, he's a whopper fan all the way) it's so small! for something with "big" in the name, i was hoping for more. the patties are the size of the whopper jr. (which used to be a bit bigger) don't get me wrong, it much tasted better than what i recall the big mac tasting like. (flame broiled vs. fried on some sort of griddle) but it was overall unsatisfying in regards of filling your stomach.
my brother just told me that dad said: "we're not getting anything that small again." to which i replied; "who knew it was that F-ing small?"

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

well, that's kind of neat

five things #195 (1) final

5 times elizabeth felt like she was running a kindergarten

a couple of the exploration teams got into a name-calling match that got childish very quickly.

a few scientists got cranky in the afternoons, until elizabeth suggested naps.

some people had a hard time with the concept of “sharing.”

sometimes a disagreement ended with someone sticking their tongue out at the other person.

elizabeth wishes she had a dollar for every time she heard a “did not!” “did too!” exchange.

5 pegasus dishes sheppard could not eat.

john was told it was a desert. frankly, it looked like crap on a plate. maybe it was like the finnish mämmi, but he wasn’t taking any chances. john snuck his portion back on the platter with the rest of it.

they said it was an ale of some sort. it was like a thick milkshake & smelled like cat pee. john dumped it back into the pitcher when no one was looking.

the stuff looked like a pile of cooked ground beef, but had a grey slime on it. john gave it to a dog-like animal that was hanging around.

it looked like the bowl was filled with very large rice krispies. they were making crackling noises, but no milk had been poured on them & john was sure a couple of them moved. he pretended to trip, spilling the whole bowl on the ground.

the fruit looked kind of like an apple, but had a rind similar to an orange. once peeled, the smell reminded john of diesel fuel & the part you were supposed to eat was sort of fuzzy. ronon seemed to be enjoying his, so john gave it to him.

Five things that happened aboard Odyssey during "Unending" that Teal'c never knew about.

he never knew that vala wanted to throw him a surprise birthday party. daniel explained that it wasn't a good idea to surprise a jaffa.

teal'c never knew that the prank on landry involving shaving cream filled balloons was meant for him. landry gave the perpetrator, mitchell, such a dressing down that he never told anyone about the mistake.

he never knew that vala often took the candles he used for kel'no'reem because she didn't want to bother sam to make some with the mater converter. later when she wasn't busy, vala had her make replacements.

he never knew that sam tried to reproduce his favorite satta-cakes with the mater converter. for some reason they turned out either very dry or hard as a rock. she never said anything because it was one of her few failures.

teal’c never knew daniel was planning to stage a jaffa ceremony to honor teal’c for his loyalty & service to the SGC in their common causes. but he couldn’t recall how it went & didn’t want to offend teal’c, so he dropped the idea.

Five human customs Teal'c doesn't understand

 hugging as a greeting. teal'c sees nothing wrong with hugs, he likes hugs. if he knows the person well.

housewarming parties. is the idea for one to show off one's house? and you're often expected to give a gift of something for the house. when, very often, teal'c thinks the person has enough things.

teal'c doesn't understand most of the customs at weddings. "giving away the bride", the tossing of the bouquet/garter & the couple smashing cake in each others faces. daniel explains the historical significance of most things, but is kind of baffled by the cake thing himself.

he's a little fuzzy on the fine points of tipping. teal'c agrees that a little something extra should be given for good work, but doesn't understand why it should be a certain percent of a restaurant bill.

christening a ship. he understands that people want the ship to stay afloat & all the people who sail on her to be safe. but he thinks the champagne should be drunk by the people present, not smashed against the side of the vessel.

i miss five things

the site officially called it quits about 3 months ago and i'm still missing it. every two week i'd go tackle a new challenge (or two) sometimes i had a hard time keeping up with the ideas as they poured from my brain, other time i had to pull them out with pliers. i liked reading different responses to prompts that i wrote. i'm still amused by the time that every response to 5 languages that daniel doesn't speak & why (or something) included klingon as one of the languages. there will probably never be anything like that again for me.

questions & answers pt. 6

asked some random questions over at joseph mallozzi's blog some time ago. didn't expect anything, but got answers;

archersangel writes: “how many do you read a week? (where do you find the time to read?) and is your to be read pile fairly big?” Answer: I average 3-4 books a week, but it really depends on how busy I am. I make time, usually an hour or two before I go to sleep. And, yes, my to-read pile is insurmountable. And I’m still buying.

Five unusual injuries.

while helping to evacuate a village about to be flooded daniel sprained his wrist while changing a baby's diaper.
"it was a big baby."

mitchell once slipped while getting into his fighter jet, fell on on the control panel & bruised his right nipple.
"it had been raining & that ladder should've been tried off."

sam once sat on her cat, schroedinger, and ended up needing four stitches on her butt.
"he wasn't there when i went to sit down."

at a friend's BBQ jack tripped over their dog, falling face first onto the plate of food he was carrying & getting several baked beans up his nose.
"it was one of those little things that ran around & yipped a lot."

apparently (according to rya'c who heard it from drey'auc) it involved a teenaged teal'c, some satta-cake batter & an in'tar.
"i do not wish to discuss it."

crazy game

the super bowl is often wacky enough as it is, but last night's game had a blackout to add to the madness. they say it was someone in the stadium maintenance crew that messed up. i say it was a ticked off 49ers fan.

what does the chocolate oracle say?

The Chocolate Oracle Says You're Mellow
You are sweet, mellow, and easily satisfied.
You don't like anything too intense and dramatic.
Deep down, you're a kid at heart... and you're nostalgic for the past.

You are laid back and fairly easy to please.
All you need in life is your friends.
Sometimes you go along to get along... but you don't mind.

You love being around people. Friendships are important to you.
You feel lost when you're by yourself... so you tend to avoid being alone.

which big cat are you?

You Are a Lynx
You are a quiet observer of the world around you. Your wisdom comes from listening carefully.
You've always been extra sensitive and aware. And it's made it difficult for you to fit in.

You see past people's outward personas. You are able to penetrate a stranger's soul.
What you've learned about people is both beautiful and ugly. And you keep these secrets to yourself.
