What I’ve Been reading

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

It’s been slim pickings lately, I’ll tell you that much. I’ve been reading, but nothing that’s really caught my fancy. Still, I wanted to post something, so here’s a story I read yesterday: Strangely Attractive, by kijikun It’s about Gwen and John Hart (yeah, that’s Gwen/John, and it earns its rating), and I wasn’t going […]

Job saga day eleventy-million

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Last Tuesday: offered full time job at higher pay & easier hours than current job (also shorter commute); celebration ensued, along with nervousness (how to tell current fun job that I’m leaving) Last Wednesday: call from soon-to-be-boss begins with question, “Have you given notice at your current job?”; job I was hired for eliminated in […]

Sci-Fi Friday: SGA 5.3

Monday, July 28th, 2008

Hooookaay…. See, here’s my problem with this episode: unless I’m misremembering (which is certainly possible), I thought the whole reason Ronon was a Runner was because the Wraith *couldn’t feed on him.* It’s not like they picked him because he was pretty or anything. So, since the entire premise of the ep seemed both bizarre […]

Sci-Fi Friday: Doctor Who (2nd to last)

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

Companion love! Yay! Things to Remember From This Episode: 1. When the government has *absolutely* no idea what’s going on, or what to do, they’ll tell people to “stay inside.” Seriously, how is that going to help? 2. If you can tell something bad is going to happen to someone in their future, telling them […]

Warning: RPS ahead!

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

Every once in a while my feeling of deep weirdness regarding RPF and my feeling of wanting to read absolutely everything that certain authors write conflict. At those times, I find myself thinking things like, “I didn’t even *watch* American Idol, so to me, it’s like they’re fictional!” Anyway, I really liked this story, so […]

Movie Review: Step Up 2: The Streets

Thursday, July 24th, 2008

If you watched Step Up (1) and thought, “Gee, this would be better if there was, you know, more *dancing*” then the writers read your mind. All in all, I liked 2 better. Great things about 1: -the final dance sequence — it was super-cool, and worth watching several times. sadly, it was one of […]

Torchwood Rec-O’-the-Day

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

Series: Yours, Mine, and Ours, by robling_t I’m not even sure how to describe these stories, but I’ve enjoyed reading them so much, I thought I should share. (Word of warning, though — the most recent one is still a WIP.) Um… basic plot: Martha turns herself into a sort-of Time Lord using the Chameleon […]

SGA fic -Clubhouse

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

Apparently, despite hearing me read large chunks of text out loud, my sister has never actually read the “What Happens in the Clubhouse” stories, so I am posting the links here. What Happens in the Clubhouse, by skoosiepants (the original!) The Knights of the Pegasus Galaxy vs the Chicken Pox, by devildoll (Kids to the […]

Movie Review: Robots

Monday, July 21st, 2008

It was cute, as long as I didn’t think about it too hard. It had the obligatory cute message (“You can shine no matter what you’re made of!”), and a plucky hero (who, along with his kooky band of free-thinkers, free Walt Disney and wrest control of the movie studio from the greedy corporate suits!). […]


Sunday, July 20th, 2008

I wrote a fic, because SGA is just like fanfic on screen (it’s that fun!), and that makes it way easier to write about. And I posted it over at SGA Flashfic (my first community post! I’m excited and full of glee, but I didn’t say it was my first post over there, because whenever […]
