captjamieway: John and Aeryn are frelling hot! (sg1 - jack bad idea)

Had an amusing moment tonight where I tried to explain to my mother that when Randy Jackson said somebody's performance on AI was "dope", that it was actually a good thing. As far as tonight's ep goes, loved Danny's peformance (as always). I also think that Anoop did a really good job and while I thought Adam's version of "Ring of Fire" was really... odd, he was in good voice. Loved Randy Travis as the mentor, he's one of my favs.

I tried to delete my pic on twitter today because I realized that the small thumbnail sized version might look like Elizabeth is shooting a bird (which wasn't really what I was going for, lol)... and I haven't been able to upload a new one since. I went into the help section and realized that at least it's not just me and other people are having the same problem too. I hope they fix it soon, as I'm currently being represented by an 'x'.

Been watching SG-1 again lately, because I was going through withdrawals. In the past couple of days I've re-watched Children of the Gods, The Fifth Race, Holiday, Window of Opportunity, and The First Ones. Evidently I needed a Jack and Daniel fix.

And if any of you are the one(s) who nominated me for the Stargate Fan Awards, thank you!! Totally wasn't expecting that.

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.

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 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.

Had a nice, easy going Saturday. I slept in late and when I was flipping through the channels I found "Annie", which was one of my favorite movies as a kid. So I watched the first part of that before deciding I should probably get showered and dressed, lol. After that, I watched an episode of Stargate SG-1 (S9's "Stronghold") and then we went to the park for a picnic lunch. When we were walking along the water, we saw a manatee... which was pretty cool. Lol, I was kind of bummed though, because I had *just* put my camera away when it popped up. I would really have loved to have gotten a picture of that. I've lived in Florida all of my life and this is the first one I've seen in the wild.

And tonight I finished another one of my [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo  stories, which just leaves one more to go. Hopefully I can finish that tomorrow, the last day (God, I can't believe it's almost December).

Three things to squee over: David Cook, Brad Paisley, and Stargate.

First up: David Cook's album was FINALLY released yesterday. I've listened to it a few five times already and...

OMG, I love it!

Totally worth the wait! My favorite songs off the album are: Bar-Ba-Sol (Which is kind of funny because it's the hardest rock song on the album and I'm mostly a Country girl. It's a bit of a departure, lol), Declaration, Heroes, Light On, Life on the Moon, Permanent, and My Last Request (which is an i-tunes exclusive, not on the regular album... but it so should have been!)... and I don't think there's one song on the album that I don't like, but I'm going to stop here because I've already named half of them, lol.


Second: Brad Paisley's latest album, "Play", was released a few weeks ago (I can't believe I haven't make a post about it before this). My favorite songs off of it are: Start A Band (of course), Kim (just sounds so sweet!), Come on In, More Than Just This Song (Steve Wariner, yay!), Let The Good Times Roll, and What a Friend We Have In Jesus (I love that Brad always includes a hymn, or gospel song, on all of his cds). And, of course I love Waitin' on a Woman, but I think of that as a Time Well Wasted song, since it originally came off that.

Third: I finally reached the end of Stargate SG-1's 8th season today. Squeeing and other thoughts are under the cut (just in case somebody is actually further behind me and hasn't seen it yet).

SG-1 stuff under here )

captjamieway: John and Aeryn are frelling hot! (weir - fanfic addict)
Well, I'm officially 2 weeks into [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo . So far I have (in various stages of completeness):

3 John/Elizabeth
1 Elizabeth/Ronon Friendship  (which is the only one I've posted so far)
1 Elizabeth/Jack
1 Elizabeth/Daniel
and 1 Gen SGA

(Lol, I believe I see a recurring theme there...)

I'm not happy with all of them (I've been having some days of serious self-fic-loathing)... but I'm really happy that I've actually kept up with this. I don't think I've ever written this many consecutive days before. I committed to at least 100 words a day (because I'm wimpy)... but I've only had 4 days under 400, so on the scale of me, I've been doing pretty good.


BTW, has anybody ever had one of their userpics magically change into something else? Because I went to use one of my Lizzie icons and in it's place was an icon of a man I've never even seen before. Just seems really odd...

OH! And I finally "met" Vala today and I have to admit, she and Daniel are quite cute. :)

captjamieway: John and Aeryn are frelling hot! (weir - o rly)

I finally got around to SG-1's "Lost City" and "New Order" the other day. I've been really looking forward to them and am amazed I managed to wait this long (to actually see them in order).

A couple of stray thoughts, that I don't think are spoilery, no plot details.

- Blonde!Lizzie, ZOMG! Lol, I hadn't seen a picture of her previous to this, so yeah... I was surprised.
- I do like Jessica's Lizzie. Not anywhere near as much as Torri's, but still.
- Elizabeth/Daniel, I could totally see them as a couple. I'd already previously thought they could be kind of cute, but now I ♥ them even more. Of course (IMO) she belongs with John... but that doesn't mean she couldn't have had a little fun beforehand, lol.

And, this has nothing to do with either of those episodes... but, speaking of Daniel, I spent a great deal of time staring at his arms during "Evolution"... They are a thing of beauty. Expect Icons.

I *finally* started watching BSG today. The mini-series was good, very epic. So far my favorites are Roslin, Starbuck,  Adama, and Apollo. Can't say I'm too fond of Baltar... but I'm probably not supposed to be at this point, lol. I hope I can catch up with the series before the episodes start airing again in 2009. I'd like to be able to watch some "live".

And yes, I squeed over the "We need to start having babies!" line. ;-) *climbs aboard the Adama/Roslin ship*



I also finally finished the 5th season of Stargate SG-1. I was in limbo with that for months. Now, if I had known what was going to happen in the next episode in line, "Meridian", I may have stayed in limbo for awhile longer *had a big sad*.
