Quote of the Day!

Saturday, May 24th, 2008

“I’m sorry, what was that?” Rodney was asking. “I could have sworn you just said, ‘Rodney, spend less time on your galaxy-changing research and more time fixing the ship that I broke’.” This totally wins for the day! It’s from a story called Birds, Bees, and Related Fauna, by slybrarian. It’s part of a group […]

Some fic recs…

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

… not compiled by me! This very nice list of fanfic recs is by xela. Thanks xela! (“Thanks Ace! Thanks Doctor! Thanks for saving my life and getting me back home!”) I especially like the selection of SGA fics — some of them I recognized right away (Academic, by rageprufrock), and some were brand new […]

Is it still Thursday? It felt like Friday *all day* to me, and I kept realizing that no, it’s still Thursday. Like when you wake up and think, “It’s Saturday, no work!” and then you realize it’s actually still Friday, and your alarm’s going to go off any minute. ::sad face:: Anyway, here’s a cute […]

Bee Movie

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

Yet another bizarre animated movie — is it so hard to make an animated film that doesn’t end up making you feel weirded out? “Bee Movie” was *nowhere near* as weird as “Happy Feet,” but tried a similar tactic in trying to make it relate to the real world — and not just relate, but […]

Yay Kristi!

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

Just a quick “hurrah!” for Kristi Yamaguchi, as well as her partner Mark Ballas, winners of the esteemed mirror ball trophy on Dancing With the Stars season 6! Kristi is the first female winner since season 1 (and I voted for her 10 times last night) so I felt very invested in the outcome tonight. […]

100th Post!

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

Woohoo! 100 posts! PS: starandrea says I’ve never posted about this story by sardonicsmiley, so here it is: Sophomore Slump. It’s like SGA and Sky High combined, with important social messages! As a warning, there’s six parts, and part six ends pretty much in a cliffhanger. The series continues in Dog Days, which is a […]

Ooh, timely…

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

Here’s an interesting history lesson disguised as a humorous look at things younger than John McCain! (which include Cheerios, and chocolate chip cookies!) Things younger than Republican Presidential candidate John McCain (discovered through a link on caitirin’s lj)

What I’m Reading

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

I have no idea who these people are, or why they’re pirates. This story showed up on Overheard Fanfic, and it looked funny, so I read it. The person who posted called it a “Bandslash AU of hilarity.” Dance Upon the Waves, by ignipes “When Brendon was a kid, he used to daydream about running […]

Where’s my soapbox?

Saturday, May 10th, 2008

Here’s the thing: I love the internet. I love watching tv, watching movies, reading endless fanfiction based on tv and movies (and books, and everything else). I love that on the internet, everyone can say what they love and what they don’t. Yeah, that’s pretty much all I’ve got. Share the love! Oh, I also […]

TV Night

Friday, May 9th, 2008

I ::heart:: The Sarah Jane Adventures. Here’s why: 1. They have a cute message, which is essentially “keep trying.” Who can’t get behind that? 2. They model good behavior — seriously, in the one with the nuns? Sarah Jane, Luke, and Clyde were surrounded by *nuns,* and not even a huge number of nuns, just […]
