I caught up with Lost tonight. Spoilers under the cut.

Spoilers up to and including ep 5x05 of Lost )

Oh, and I'm feeling better today, yay. :)

OK, now is SO not the time to get sick. I didn't go to visit my mom at the hospital today, because my throat feels funky and I don't want to give her any cooties. Right now Zicam is my new best friend and I'm going through a ton of orange juice.

I haven't mentioned anything fandomy in quite awhile but I watched "Fringe" tonight and I'll put my random thoughts under a cut.

spoilers for the Fringe episode 01x14 Ability under here )

I missed half of "Lost" last week due to a recording mishap. I accidentally set the recording speed to SP instead of EP and I only got half of the show (because most of the tape was already filled *wishes she had DVR*). So I'm looking forward to both the repeat of that ep and this week's new ep tomorrow night.

*snickers*

I was just checking the i-tunes store, because it's new music Tuesday and I happened across: "Hushabye Baby: Lullaby Renditions of Willie Nelson"

Nothin' quite like having "Whiskey River" lull your baby to sleep.


Update: Ahhh, Taylor Hicks has a new single out (which has apparently been out for a week already, but I often forget to check anything other than the Country section, lol). Yay!

Lol, I finally have a BSG icon. I told myself that I couldn't make anymore BSG related posts until I made one. I'm up to 2x12 Resurrection Ship: Part 2 now. I know I have a couple people on my F-List that are in the middle of Season 2 as well, so I'll put my thoughts under a cut (and if you respond to this post... please don't include any spoilers past "Resurrection Ship: Part 2". I'm trying to remain as spoiler free as possible).

I'm so glad my shows are all coming back on. American Idol started last week. I kind of hate this part of AI... because I don't give a crap about the beginning auditions. I don't want to hear people in costumes singing off-key and then fighting with the judges over how good they sound... But we have to get through this to get to the good stuff.

Fringe also came back tonight. Have I mentioned recently how much I love Walter? And Peter (*melt*) and Walter together is just so much love. The more I watch this show, the more I like it.

And, Lost is on tomorrow!!! God, it's been gone so long. I probably should have been watching episode reruns just so I can remember what the hell is going on, lol.

The rest of my shows (Heroes, TSSC, *cough* Survivor) all come back on in February... and I'm thinking about checking out Dollhouse when it starts.

I'm still in the middle of Season 2 of BSG. The last episodes I watched was the "Home" two-parter, which I loved. I ended up buying Season 4.0 over the weekend and I'll be taping the 4.5 episodes as they air on TV. So hopefully, at some point, I'll be all set and caught up to watch the last few episodes live.

I miss SGA.

And, unrelated, but I love Kelly Clarkson's new single, "My Life Would Suck Without You"!

My whole computer-life flashed before my eyes yesterday, lol. When I turned my computer on before the Atlantis series finale, I heard this god-awful noise from the CPU and started freaking out. In between the *OMG's* I thought about all the fic I've worked on in the past 3 months, including the 9 mini_nano stories I still haven't posted (somebody needs to light a fire under my butt on that) and the 10 or so others I've started since then, none of which were backed up. Not to mention all of the pictures, resources, etc... I have stored on here. Anyway, my father came in (because I was getting quite loud and panicky, lol) and thwapped it on the back, near where the fan is. It stopped making the noise and seems to be fine. It certainly scared the life out of me though and I spent the rest of the night worrying about it. I hope it wasn't something serious... maybe something just caught in the fan?

And, of course, last night was the Stargate Atlantis finale. My stomach was in knots watching it (although I think some of that had to do with the computer problems, lol) and I felt a bit teary eyed in spots. I don't think it's been a secret that there have been a lot of things about SGA post S3 that I haven't liked (*cough-cast-changes-cough*)... but I'm bummed that it's over. I really love these characters and I'm going to miss seeing them every week especially John. I wish all of the cast good luck on their future endeavors and hope that they end up on successful shows. There was more I wanted to say last night after it aired, but I could not connect to the internet at all yesterday... and now I can't remember what I wanted to say, lol. No internet also means I have a lot of F-List catching up to do.

I had a weird dream a few nights ago. Somehow I ended up stranded out in the middle of nowhere with a few people (I don't remember a lot of details, but I get the feeling that there was some type of doomsday and we thought we were some of the last people left on Earth). Eventually we happened upon a big raised house and, after wandering through several rooms, we came upon one with tons of shelves lined with tv series DVD's. Lol, so I mention that we can live happily here... until I notice that *dun dun dun* they don't have Season 3 of Battlestar Galactica, *lolz*. Later, when we were out on the porch we found Rodney McKay, whom I was very glad to see. And I don't remember anything else after that.

Speaking of BSG, I've just started watching Season 2 and I think I can officially say that I've been sucked in. I was hoping to be all caught up by the time the series picks up again next week, but I'm not sure if that'll happen. Hopefully not more than a few weeks later than that though.

We all went out for my mother's birthday a few nights ago. My nephew ordered Calamari for an appetizer so I decided to try it (which probably surprised me more than anybody, lol)... and I actually liked it. My sister refused to try it though, which amused me to no end because she's always made a big deal out of my niece and nephew trying something new and even used to pay them $$ to do so. I understand why she didn't want to, there are some things I just wont try... but it was still funny.
captjamieway: John and Aeryn are frelling hot! (tos - hello computer)

My internet has been a bit wonky the last couple of days, cutting in and out, and I couldn't access it at all today until this evening. Sometimes I seriously think I'd be able to take the news that the room I'm in is running out of oxygen and I'll soon suffocate better than someone telling me that I'll be without internet access for an indefinite period of time.

I guess it's not really being without the internet as much as it is not knowing *why* you can't connect and when you'll be able to connect again. It's just such a pain in the ass not knowing what's wrong. Is it the router, modem, computer, service provider...? There are just too many variables... and calling tech support is not fun. Ever.

I assume the problem is on their end because here I am... and I haven't changed anything or done anything differently. It had me wondering if it had anything to do with my Wii though, since it's recently been hooked up. I suppose it was just a coincidence though. The important thing is that you never leave me again, internet!

New Year's Eve was rather uneventful. I stayed in all day and simultaneously watched the ball drop on one tv and the New Years Celebration in my Animal Crossing video game on another, lol. New Year's Day was a little more fun (aside from being woken up from the fire alarm, which proceeded to randomly go off many times during the morning/afternoon until my dad figured how to disconnect it *lolz* most awful sound ever). We went out to dinner with my sister and her family, then back to their house to play with their Wii. We had fun taking turns playing games and laughed as they all made their Mii's. It's funny how they really can look like the person. The Wii really is awesome and brings people in that wouldn't even normally play video games. Everyone from my nephew (22) to my mother (65) was playing, laughing, and having fun.

 Happy New Year, F-List!

I hope 2009 will be an awesome year for us all.

I've been meaning to post the lyrics to this for awhile now, and the song just came on in i-tunes to remind me. A lot of this song reminds me of Season 4/5 John and Sparky.

I'm now completely up to date with Stargate SG-1. I watched "The Ark of Truth" a couple of days ago and "Continuum" tonight. I think that, of the two, "Continuum" was my favorite. I can't believe it's over. I'm so ready for the next SG-1 movie, I want it nao!

You know, when I started out my journey with SG-1, I kept thinking... this is alright, but I don't think I'll ever like it as much as Atlantis (because, of course, I do everything backwards and started out with Atlantis). I was wondering if I'd be able to come to love these characters as much the ones from SGA and you know what, I do. It took me a bit longer with some of them than it did with SGA (because they had me at hello), but I seriously love them, all of them, and I'm tempted to just say the heck with the other tv series I've purchased to watch and just run through SG-1 again instead, lol. *hugs the team*

My father did something that surprised me tonight. He asked if I wanted to watch Atlantis. I was shocked, lol... he's never suggested that before. Usually whenever *I* suggest him watching it... he wants to watch The Outer Limits or The Original Series (Star Trek) instead. We watched "Letters from Pegasus" and he did complain about Rodney the entire time (as usual) but I'm learning to tune that out.

And this is random, but I want to make Ronon videos to Merle Haggard songs, lol.

Oh... and that LJ downtime earlier? So not funny.

A few entries ago I mentioned that I had gotten a couple of Babylon 5 seasons on DVD, so I could check out the show. Well, that idea was short lived, because I took them back the other day and bought a Wii Fit instead. I still have at least 3 other shows to get through, and I figured I could be playing the Wii Fit now instead of B5 just sitting on a shelf waiting for it's turn.

I've been having a lot of fun with the Wii. The sports games it came with are fun (♥ boxing, suck at baseball) and the Wii Fit is great too. I also got Mario Kart today (been looking for it the last few days, was out of stock everywhere) and I played a little bit of that tonight. Would anybody on my F-List like to exchange friend codes for that?

captjamieway: John and Aeryn are frelling hot! (s/w - christmas)
Well, Christmas is officially over. We got back from my sister's house about an hour ago and I had a lovely time. It was a bit smaller than usual, still about 20-25 people though. As the day winded down, they turned their Wii on (my brother-in-law got it for Christmas) and got out the Wii balance board and the guys and kids did snowboarding, boxing, etc... It looked like a lot of fun (I didn't play because I've never used a Wii before and I didn't want to look stupid, lol), so I'm excited to get the one I got for Christmas hooked up so I can play. I'd eventually like to get a Wii Fit too. That and the Mario Kart game will be my next goals for it, I think.

Other than the Wii and the Animal Crossing game, I got money (whoo!), fuzzy socks (hee), a purse, and a Star Trek pez set from my (oldest) nephew... which I thought was really nice. I actually already have one, lol... but there's no way I'd let him know that. Lol, just knowing that a young cool guy had the guts to go through the line with a Trek item warms my heart. Geek gifts FTW! =D

I watched the last episode of Stargate SG-1 today. I found myself getting emotional at the end... I'm bummed to be at the end, but at least I still have the two movies left to watch. I think I'll watch the Ark of Truth tomorrow. I downloaded and watched "Ascension" yesterday, because I remembered that I hadn't been able to see most of that episode because the disc I had with it on it was messed up. I've heard people talk poorly about the condition of the discs in the complete Stargate set box (which had me kind of freaked out when I read the reviews... AFTER I had already gotten and opened it, lol), but I have to say that out of all 214 episodes, that is the only episode that was unwatchable... and it was an easy fix to just download it off of i-tunes, so I'm pleased I got it (even if the discs are a bit of a pain in the butt to pull out). So yeah, Ark of Truth tomorrow and Continuum the next day and then I can finally say that I'm up to date with SG-1.

I hope you all are having a very merry Christmas! We went to my aunt's house last night on Christmas Eve and in a couple of hours we'll be heading down to my sister's to see the rest of the family. We had our own little Christmas at home this morning and opened our presents. I got my Wii and also the Animal Crossing: City Folk game, yay! Now I'm going to go watch Stargate before I have to get ready.

I forgot to look in the Best Buy circular on Sunday, so I looked today and squeed when I saw that Babylon 5 is on sale for $19.99 a season. I've been wanting to check that out for awhile now... especially since I saw the B5 guests at the last con I went to (still need to post pictures from that), so I went and picked up the first two seasons. I figure I should know by then if I'll like it or not.

I've also been wanting to check out Farscape, but the DVDs don't seem to be available... and the ones on ebay are just a wee bit expensive, lol. I did notice that they're available for download on i-tunes though. Hopefully they'll re-release the dvds soon... I only have 3 episodes of SG-1 (+ movies) left to watch and I need more Ben Browder and Claudia Black, lol. But I still have more BSG to keep me occupied... and I still need to start on Firefly and Eureka. Lol, everytime I've had a chance to watch something, I always pop SG-1 in. Addicted.

I was trying to convince my father to watch SG-1 the other night (he's only seen bits and pieces of a few episodes)... and in trying to narrow down his resistance to it, he informed me that he "doesn't like that guy that played MacGyver." *facepalm* After I picked my jaw up off the floor and uttered different variations of  "ZOMG, how can you not like RDA/Jack O'Neill?!" for the next twenty minutes, he finally agreed to give the show a chance.

My 2nd post in a week, regarding someone's passing. :( Majel Barrett Roddenberry has passed away from Leukemia at age 76. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. I've never met her, but from what I've heard, she seemed like a lovely woman. She truly was the first lady of Star Trek and will be missed.

You scored 86% wisdom, 21% aggression, 44% power, and 91% morality!

Last of the Jedi, you carry heavy burdens and have great potential. Your fighting prowess has only progressed so far, having started your training later in life, but you can hold your own regardless. You have great wisdom and insight beyond your years and experience, and your moral code could not be any stronger. You find the paths no one else can see, and save the galaxy because of it.

I just found out that one of my favorite actors, Van Johnson, passed away today at age 92. I've enjoyed many of his movies and he was in quite a few of my favorites, like "In The Good Old Summertime", "Too Young To Kiss", "The Bride Goes Wild", "Miracle In The Rain", and "Three Guys Named Mike". My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. There aren't that many (classic actors/actresses) left... *has a sad*
