I've taken my job back at the library. Boss e-mailed me and said I could set up my schedule after I get on campus. I'm thinking I'll probably still work nights Monday through Wednesday. I *should* work more hours, but I don't want to work more nights and I don't particularly want to work during the day. As far as I know, my coworkers in Circulation will be the same and I rather like working with them. Call nights at the library a comfort zone of sorts. Maybe I'll add an half-hour or hour onto my work schedule. I'd add more, but then I'd have to figure things out food-wise. Which wouldn't be difficult, but I'm lazy.
Tomorrow Mom and I go to Moses, where I will renew my driver's license (and still get a juvenile one, seeing as how I won't be 21 until October) and buy Lost
and possibly House
. We may even see The Brothers Grimm
, which would be cool. I need to get out and do something other than the exact same thing I do every day. Mainly, nothing.
This week, Mom and I watched The Sure Thing
with wee 19-year-old John Cusak. So cute! So feminine! It was decided that he could have been a star in Kabuki theater. Also watched the last hour or so of My Bodyguard
, starring a not-so-wee 19-year-old Adam Baldwin. My god! It was ker-azy. It also had Joan Cusak with lots of hair. Then tonight Mom and I watched Die Another Day
on the Spike channel and I finally realized why Star Trek
is considered enough of a "guy show" to get played on Spike. The women aliens? Space bimbos. Spasluts. Even when they are respected diplomats/scientists/engineers/etc., they are sexy/slutty/wear skimpy outfits. The men aliens? Scary looking. Or Q.
So, yeah, guy show. Why's CSI
on there? Stereotyping of women as people who do not want to see violence and crime-solving? Why am I asking this? *Of course* it's stereotyping; it's Spike TV. D'oh.
Have also determined this week that every show would be better if the actors were replaced with Muppets/puppets. This started while watching The Muppet Show
and getting a particularly vivid picture of Stargate SG-1: The Muppet Show
stuck in my head. OMG, can't you just imagine the puppet!Jaffa! With their wee-tiny staff weapons! (That's kinda dirty right there.) Daniel with his fluffy puppet hair! And wee puppet glasses! Hammond would look much like Bunson, I'm sure. And then Stargate Atlantis: The Muppet Show
with puppet!Wraith and puppet!McKay flailing around like Kermit when he gets frustrated. Puppet!Zelenka would have that really floaty puppet hair that moves even when the puppet's not. And the Sheppard puppet would have stolen his hair from the Angel puppet. Ronon would look something like a miniaturized, human-ified Sweetums. It would be *fantastic* and I would watch all the time.Lost
with puppets! LotR with puppets! Firefly
Funnily enough, the only show I can't imagine working with puppets would be Farscape
. Because, you see, Rygel and Pilot are already puppets and how can you puppet-fy a puppet? You can't. Obviously it would be silly to try.
I'm gonna cut this next part because I'm silly and it's silly and, like, Natasha and Neesha might appreciate it, but other than that, y'all are just gonna think I'm weird. ;)( Everything I watch reminds me of Stargate )
Ahem.( Stargate Fanfiction Recs )
Apparently the first season of SGA will be out on November 15. And then I'll really be able to watch it however, wherever, whenever I want. :) It's the small (but pricey) things in life.
