captjamieway: John and Aeryn are frelling hot! (sga - lost city)

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.

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.
