Kurt's dad is the best thing about Glee. Along with some of the performances. My mom and I are agreed on this.

Spoilers for tonight's episode, Theatricality )

Before that, there was NCIS.

Talking to my grandma about NCIS is so funny.

"If they ever got rid of Gibbs and put Tony in charge, I'd stop watching. He irks me so much sometimes. And the way he teases poor McGee..."

"He means it with love! Besides, McGee holds his own."

She's got this thing about how Tony is too old to act the way he does. It amuses me. I think we all know how I feel about their teasing. ;)

SG-1 came on after Merlin. Mom made the observation that they have a good budget. They could've done the apocalypse up real good.

ME: Supernatural had a good budget. What did they even spend all of it on?
MOM: I think they spent it all on nose candy.

Makes as much sense as anything.

The SG-1 episode is "Redemption, Pt. 1." McKaaaaaay! Also, hi Jonas! Hi!

01. The other day [ profile] sdrohc_ratiug were texting each other what it would be like if Eric Kripke did Buffy and Joss Whedon did Supernatural. Then there were crossovers. It was entertaining.

[ profile] annundriel: If SPN were done by Whedon, Dean and Cas would make out.
[ profile] sdrohc_ratiug: Haha it's true. But he would also break everyone's heart and EVERYONE WOULD DIE.

It's a win-lose situation.

02. Just want to send a big thank you to [ profile] wynna_pendragon for the v-gift! I've been in a bit of a rut lately and it totally made my day. <3

03. Writing briefs is not my favorite thing to do ever.

04. Finished reading Joe Hill's short story collection 20th Century Ghosts. Really enjoyed it. Got it from the library and may have to buy my own copy. I'm still trying to figure out all of the implications of "My Father's Mask." (A story which you should not read in the middle of the night because you may be woken up an hour later by the dog barking and the sound of doors opening and closing and start thinking about how in-the-middle-of-nowhere you are and people in masks and so-on.)

05. There is no 5.

MOM: Me? I just like saying shuttlecock.
ME: Heh.
MOM: I am my daughter's mother.

Happy December holiday of your choice!!

If there isn't one, Happy December!

My own Christmas was fairly pleasant and low-key. Save for the horrific headache I had most of the day. But painkillers and a nap mostly took care of it and eventually moving stopped making me feel nauseated.

Most fun was probably getting Grandma's Wii set up.

And flailing over District 9 with my brother.

Last night, Dad, Grandma, and I went to mass. (I hadn't actually been since last Christmas. But I still knew it all. Like riding a bicycle.) It was...Well. It was. Typical of our really, really tiny English speaking parish. The music was decent and there was a very nice feeling of camaraderie!

Beforehand, a friend of mine said hi. She has a daughter who is just over two years old. She was explaining to me that she's really been emphasizing that Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ and it's not about Santa and presents. To help, she's told her daughter that if she's not good, Santa won't bring her presents because she hurt Jesus.

"You could tell her that Santa brought Jesus presents when he was born," I said, thinking of the three wise men and their gifts. Y'know. Just trying to be helpful and integrate the different aspects of the holiday.

She just looked at me, wide-eyed, like I was crazy. "But...Santa came after Jesus. Didn't he?"

"Yeah, but...I mean...I was joking. You know, the wise me--Never mind."

I kinda wanted to facepalm right there.

Mom just realized she maybe should have taken Sheppard's gun away from him in these pictures. Otherwise, she points out, it looks like they're grappling and John's about to shoot Rodney.

I maintain that John is going off to sacrifice himself bravely (like he does) and Rodney is telling not to be stupid and and get himself actually killed. (Ala this scene from "The Prodigal.") So his gun is drawn as part of his action man status and instead of handshakes there are revelatory kisses and desperation.

Also, haha, I was looking for something SGA-related and found this conversation in my post about "Whispers":

ME: John's uncomfortable because he's scared of girls.
MOM: And bugs, right?
ME: Yeah.
MOM: He must be really scared of girls with bugs then.
ME: And girly bugs.
MOM: So put a tutu on a beetle and he must go apeshit.

Which reminds me of the dream I had once where John and Rodney had a beach house and they went out and came back to find a Wraith in it. John wanted Rodney to kill it with bug spray and wouldn't get out of his truck until it was dead.

Sometimes I miss these guys like you would not believe.

So Thomas Kinkade's Christmas Cottage is on Lifetime right now. But I am watching Muppets: Letters instead because OMG Jared. I'm sorry, but I just can't.

But talking about Jared filming it led to this conversation:

ME: I think Jensen was doing A Few Good Men on stage at the time...That. Um. Doesn't sound right.
MOM: Has Jared ever done A Few Good Men?

We're horrible. I love it.
annundriel: ([cplng] Feel Pretty)

But, oh, the crack she inspires.

Tonight we were watching the newest My Fair Wedding with David Tutera. (A sneak peek of the show. Not the episode we just watched, but it was a really good one.) Each episode begins with David meeting the bride and groom. Then he sends the groom away and we usually don't see him again until the day of.

Anyway, this new episode began and David's partway through the sit-down and Mom goes, "Is he flirting with the groom? I think he's flirting with the groom."

I wasn't paying complete attention at this point, but anything is possible. "Was he?" I asked. Then, "Oh god, that gives me fic ideas."

And Mom gets this look on her face. I asked her what she was thinking and she tells me, "I was just trying to figure out what a wedding between Dean and Cas done by David Tutera would be like."

I died.

Um. We may have spent parts of the rest of the episode then figuring out how David would plan Dean and Cas' wedding. And who David would send away after the sit-down. There was much laughter involved. Imagining their faces should such an event occur just made us laugh harder.

So yeah. I love my mom.

I also love [ profile] dailymisha.

I feel as though I should note that the fic idea I was inspired with did not involve Dean or Castiel. And, come to think of it, actually resembles the plot of The Wedding Planner. Except less JLo and more gay.

I love talking to my mom about stuff.

Fire district meeting tonight! I am bound to be awkward! Woo, awkwardness!

I've got $10 that says Ryan Seacrest is standing on a box in that new Scope commercial.

A few weeks ago I was at the library and Shannon was telling me...something. "I heard that on NPR," she said and then paused. "Or read it in People."

"Yeah," I said, "because I get Ira Glass and Ryan Seacrest confused all the time."

Okay, back to NCIS. I want to do things to Tony's hair. Geez. And, okay, Tim's, too. That's not spoilery at all. That's probably my default setting for the season.

I love watching TV with my mom.

Last night the CW finished their repeats of SPN season 4 by showing the final two episodes. We're watching the finale and this happens:

DEAN: You can take your peace and shove it up your lily-white ass.
MOM: How does he know what color Castiel's ass is?
ME: ......I was just thinking that, too.

It's good times.

Oh, God, and then she went and inserted Dean and Castiel into the promos for The Vampire Diaries. "They'd fit in that plot, don't you think?" she said.

"Which one's which?"

"Well, Dean's the girl. Obviously. And Castiel's the vampire."

"Because he's otherworldly."


Those commercials have suddenly become really hilarious.

I am not in a particularly good or charitable mood, but instead of focusing on that I am going to focus on things that make me happy.

Like watching Shelter yesterday, which I really enjoyed. Not all of the acting was great, but Trevor Wright and Brad Rowe were very good. And then I had to go poking around the internet for the music because I liked that, too. So yes, thoroughly enjoyable. It was something I'd been interested in seeing for a while and found it on YouTube. Though I'm thinking of adding it to my Netflix queue so I can have a little better quality.

Then there was Supernatural last night and "I Know What You Did Last Summer" which had some things I enjoyed and some things I didn't. )

Okay, actually, relating that conversation has actually cheered me up. Yeah for ridiculousness. Except now I want to write something where Castiel does warn Dean to keep it in his pants.

EB: ::answers the phone:: Joel, it's for you.
MOM: Did you ask who it was?
EB: ::into phone:: May I ask who's calling, please? ::pause; to Dad:: It's a public opinion survey.
DAD: Tell them I don't have an opinion.
EB: ::into phone:: I'm sorry, Mr. W says he has no opinion.

It successfully derailed the woman on the other end. And amused the rest of us.

The Summer Reading Program has officially started at the library. This is great for the kids, but a nightmare-like zoo for the librarians (zombie orangutans! oh no!). Subs get 40 hours of extra work-time to come in and assist. I felt like Sisyphus today, only instead of a boulder I had a never ending stream of returned books and DVDs to reshelve.

But it had it's moments of amusement.

When the kids sign up, they get a reading log where they write down all of the library books they read (they can't count books they own or get elsewhere) and then keep track of the time in 15 minute increments. For every hour, they get a prize. (I got smarties and a tootsie roll just for being awesome.) But the kids aren't all entirely honest about how much they read and how much time it takes. The smart ones would realize that we can tell when a new library book has been returned unread. If you're going to lie about it, check out a book that already has a cracked spine. We might never know you're lying! Though we probably will.

These two brothers came in several times throughout the day (and never remembered to actually collect their prizes) and their claimed time kept changing. Shannon gave them new reading logs because they'd included non-library books. The younger brother was standing at the desk, refilling his out and this conversation occurred:

KID: Which ones did I really read?
SHANNON: What did you just say?
KID: Uhhh...
SHANNON: Did you hear him?
ME: Maybe he meant which did he read most intently?

Which I just explained to Mom like this, "'I really read that book,' not just, 'I read that book.' Y'know, like, 'I read that book so hard I kicked its ass.'"

It gave me a much needed laugh.

Later there was talk about a crawdad convention/lecture that would have Ted Nugent in attendance. I...don't even know. There was sarcasm and silliness involved and at one point I said, "Oh yeah, I'd say crawdads and me are like this ::crosses fingers:: except that would be gross."

ME: ::opens Red Vines:: These remind me of Jared being Twizzlered by Jensen. ::nom nom nom::
MOM: ::snags vine:: How old are these guys?
ME: I don't know, but they're pretty soft.

It wasn't even completely out of my mouth before I realized she meant Jared and Jensen and not the Red Vines' shelf-life.

MOM: What's the alternative, "I don't know, but they're pretty hard"?

We amuse me.

Oh, John

Well, yeah.

This morning while I was eating my bagel, my mom came through the kitchen to do some laundry in the backroom. "Hey," she said, "isn't Atlantis on tonight?"


"You don't sound that excited."

I told her, "Well, Fraser and Ray have kind of taken over my brain."

"Yeah, and they make no bones about - Um. Heh." She laughed. And then I joined her, because that's just waiting for a "that's what she said" kind of follow-up and we're on the same wavelength.

"No bones about what?" I asked.

"They make no bones about the homoerotic content."

It was a good laugh early in the morning.
