Survived a 2 hour float trip on the Kenai River in drizzly, sporadic rain. It was quite lovely and very peaceful in many places.

Deadliest Catch! )

Behind the cut for spoilers. Seriously. Don't look if you didn't see it.

R U kidding? )

Well, that was quick. Silver turned down "Passage." She said she couldn't connect to the story or characters. Huh. Well, on to the next I guess.

It's been really quiet here and I'm wondering if it's due to the DoS attacks or am I just boring?

I have my kid's cold. Or maybe it was someone elses'. Not that it matters. I'm just miserable.

Weather is still chilly but sunny and most of yesterday's snowfall has melted off since yesterday morning. The DH has my car and is going to take the studded tires off so it better not snow again!

In honor of ComicCon opening, I give you proof of my sordid past. They say tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. I say it's better to have been thought of having been a bimbo than never having been a babe at all. Here's to all the current booth babes; may you live long and prosper!

I thought I'd post a few of my favorite moments in my favorite movies and see if maybe they resonate for you too.

1) Rudolph: "Bumbles bounce!" Hee!
2) Rudolph: When Santa comes to get the Misfit toys. My heart just shines.
3) Scrooge the Musical: Best ever end scene. Albert Finney makes me believe Scrooge has changed when he's crying and shouting, "I'm alive! I'm alive and I will not be the man I've been!"
4) Santa Claus the Movie: When Burgess Meridith as the Old Elf comes to proclaim Klaus as 'Santa Claus.' So moving.
5) Santa Claus the Movie: The 'elf' puns throughout the movie. "He just needs a little elf-control." *snort!*
6) The Santa Clause (1): When Tim is undressing in his North Pole room for the first time and the Punch and Judy dolls start screaming when he drops his pants. I laugh every time!
7) The Santa Clause (1): When Judd Hersch as Neal looks at Scott and realizes he's really Santa. His eyes get big and he says 'Santa?' in a 3 year old's voice. It's one of the most amazing pieces of acting I've ever seen.
8) The Santa Clause 2: The vintage toy gifts to the teachers. Rock-em Sock-em Robots! Toss Across! I want all of them!
9) The Santa Clause 2: Lucy and Tooth Fairy. She's just so sweet and he's a total hoot! Molinator. *hee!*
10) For the non-religious, skip if you wish. Ben Hur: Not usually considered a Christmas movie and yet in the scene where Ben is dragged off in chains to become a slave and the man at the well risks his life to give him water moves me every time. This is the Christ whose birth I celebrate...one who does a small act of kindness at great personal risk. That's the true meaning of Christmas for me.

You got a favorite moment or two you can share with us?

Pissy little rant

Dear SGA fanfic writers:

If I have to read one more fic about how the Tauri need to be kicked out of Atlantis because they don't belong, I will spit.

A) It was said very early on that the reason some of the humans have the Ancient gene is because the Ancients interbred with them. Therefore they are the descendants of the Ancients and DO have a valid claim to Atlantis.

B) Most of the other races are not at the same technological level to make use of the Ancient devices so if they can't use the city, even if they have the gene, then what the hell do they want it for????? Don't give me 'sacred, so kill the blasphmers' because the Athosians thought it was sacred too but they still had no problem living there sometimes or turning it over to the Tauri.

C) The Tauri offer to help defend using the Ancient tech so it's a good trade off that can't just be ignored.

D) The Ancients themselves were not from Pegasus so they were intruders too. What makes them any more deserving to stay?

Get with the program damn it.

Meantime, I am sad that I am running out of good long SGA fics to read. I can see the fandom winding down. I don't care for most of the AU fics altho I have read some and like them. But most of the "John is whore and Rodney his client" or "John/Airline pilot and Rodney/millionaire playboy" type AUs just do not appeal to me.

Work time. Sigh. (I did add to my NaNo word count today tho.)

My day off

I was mostly AWOL on Sunday altho I did peek in and read a bit here. I was feeling crappy and had a sore back/shoulder which left me unable to raise my left arm to shoulder height even, so I skipped out on everything, even Mass. I sat around and watched the telly and looked at some picture drooly-type books from the library. You know the kind: dream houses, gardens, cookbooks with food you will never cook or probably never eat either. We watched a DVD from the library too. I think it was called When The Rains Came or something like that. About a Brit in India who is doing his servant girl. Ho-hum. Can't rec it. The DH made dinner and did his own laundry while hobbling around on his bad knee. The brace he got doesn't seem to be doing the trick other than keeping him upright when the knee goes out which I think is points in its favor.

Got up this morning with back/shoulder feeling fine. (WTF) It was pea soup fog outside when I staggered to the kitchen for coffee, but glorious sunshine by the time I left for work. It was up in the low 70's today. (Bleah!) I only worked 4 hours but spent most of the time shelving so I'm frazzled.

No work for the next 3 days, so I'm determined to do some writing. And maybe go catch Harry Potter before it leaves town.

There's a pot of homemade chicken soup on the stove just waiting for the old guy to get home. Rumor has it my AWOL child is coming with him. Must need a shower and a change of clothing. :oP

ETA:I'm sure I've recced this before, but page 5, Pierce Brosnen totally slayed me!

My 15 minutes of fame have started and the clock is ticking. I like to make comments on news stuff occasionally and I have much fun reading and commenting on MSNBC's Test Pattern column which discusses tv/film stuff. They are doing the yearly rake over of commercials, the good, the bad and the ugly and they took one of my comments for a post about some of the most hated/loved ones. I'm kenaiqueen there and it's here:

If you loved me, you'd go vote hate for Flo of the Progressive ads and prove me right. :o)

Merry Christmas!
