Reply and I'll give you four fandoms. You then have to make an entry writing about your favorite character from each fandom, and why.

Feeling nostalgic.

I miss these guys.

You know what I kind of miss?

Stargate Atlantis.

When it was awesome. And fun.

Colin Morgan and Bradley James have the best facial expressions.

Right up there with Joe Flanigan.

They are distracting.

- Thank you to whoever sent me my anonymous Valentine and left me such nice words at the Valentine's Day Game. Gave me warm fuzzies. I've got a pretty good idea just who's behind it. ;)

- [ profile] olivelavonne came to visit me this weekend. We finally exchanged Christmas gifts and, boy, do we know each other well. I got her seasons five and six of Smallville and she got him these guys:

There was much flailing. And then action figure manipulating. Natasha is awesome.

And just because I had my camera out, nothing says giant literary dork like Jane Austen action figures and James Joyce fingerpuppets. He spent senior year on the refrigerator next to the magnetic poetry.

- Had lots of fun. Valentine's we had dinner with Grandma and Mom, since the guys are on their roadtrip. Then Natasha and I watched Wilby Wonderful. Yesterday we saw Confessions of a Shopaholic, which was a lot of fun. Another book I want to reread now. Came home and watched Pineapple Express. Good times.

- The newspaper will be publishing my first anonymous article soon. The events I'm writing about are ones that could get myself and my family unwanted attention from the big fish in our little pond and that is something I would like to avoid.

- Have not watched the finale of Stargate Atlantis. And I'm still unspoiled for it.

- Saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button )

- Finished reading John Connolly's The Book of Lost Things. If this book were a movie, Terry Gilliam would be the director. I am completely enamored with it. From David to Roland to the Communist dwarfs. (omg, the Communist dwarfs.) And while I'm done with the main part of the book, the last hundred or so pages are fairy tale background and writerly thoughts and that makes me happy. Especially from an intertextual point-of-view.

The stories in books hate the stories contained in newspapers, David's mother would say. Newspaper stories were like newly caught fish, worthy of attention only for as long as they remained fresh, which was not very long at all. They were like the street urchins hawking the evening editions, all shouty and insistent, while stories - real stories, proper made-up stories - were like stern but helpful librarians in a well-stocked library. Newspaper stories were as insubstantial as smoke, as long-lived as mayflies. They did not take root but were instead like weeds that crawled along the ground, stealing the sunlight from more deserving tales.
- John Connolly, The Book of Lost Things (p. 9)

What a great book to start the year with. It was one of those books I had no idea I was looking for, y'know?

- Hey! Amber from House is on this repeat of How I Met Your Mother!
annundriel: ([ds] Partners)
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.

When you see this, post a quote from Stargate Atlantis.

Choosing just one SGA quote is like trying to eat just one potato chip. Nigh impossible. So I went with two.

McKAY: You see, the thing is, Colonel Sheppard and I have sort of gotten into this habit of saving each other's lives, and it's my turn.


SHEPPARD: Well, then I would be the Man and who would I have to rage against?

I am feeling sentimental and mushy about them. Going through episode quotes just makes me realize how much I'm going to miss these guys.

Meanwhile, old PR contestants on Top Design )

And, holy crap, I just figured out who Jonathan Adler's husband is - Simon Doonan! I had no idea!

I had a dream this morning in which John and Rodney were staying at a beach house, Wraith showed up, and John wanted Rodney to use a can of bug spray to deal with them.

They'd gone someplace and came back only to find several unknown vehicles parked outside. I guess this meant trouble and they immediately thought Wraith. They had a can of bug spray with them and John wanted Rodney to handle it. Without getting out of the car. So he drove up really close to the house and Rodney rolled down his window and started spraying.

They either figured that they were wrong or that they were at the wrong house because as they passed the parked cars they saw a couple of people sitting inside. NID? Wraith? Bodies the Wraith propped up? Who knows. But John and Rodney decided they needed to leave, so they turned around and drove away, waving at one of their neighbors in passing.

Weird, right?

Though John wanting Rodney to kill bugs makes a lot of sense to me.
annundriel: ([csi] In the Lab)
Today I got to thinking, thanks to WaT, about how much I want CSI to lock Wendy and Hodges in a closet in the lab until they crack and just make out already. Geez. And then I realized that Hodges and Wendy? Totally McKay and Sheppard. )

Stargate Atlantis has been cancelled.

At first I had mixed feelings about it because I've had mixed feelings about the current season. But now I'm stuck on the fact that TV viewing wise I'll be losing two of the characters that I have loved the most in anything. I'm not sure what to do with that. :(

But, as my mom pointed out, there will always be fandom. Which is something.

And then there was last night's Eureka )

Project Runway - 5.06 )
annundriel: ([es] Clementine)
I am more excited for tonight's Doctor Who than SGA.

I might even been looking forward to Joan of Arcadia a little more than SGA. Because I've never seen it before and they're only on the third episode and I like discovering new characters.


Yesterday Mom, Dad, and I saw Hellboy II: The Golden Army. I really enjoyed it. A lot. It was gorgeous visually, though I actually thought the first movie was more comic book-like. I'm wondering if that had to do with the color palette.

I love the relationship between Hellboy and Liz. And I love the juxtaposition between the way he looks and the way he acts. Plus, his "oh crap" will never not be funny.

One of my favorite lines was when Hellboy tried to get Abe to drink with him.

ABE: My body is a temple.
HB: (pushing the beer at him) Well, now it's an amusement park.

Meanwhile, I love this song. Not sure if it's my favorite, but it's the one that gets stuck in my head most often.

So continuing from my last post about the season five premiere of SGA, what I really want to know is... )
annundriel: ([sga] Atlantis 1 v.2.0)
The people who do the promo shots for SGA should be fired. At the very least, someone needs to take their photoshop away.

Some of them aren't that bad, but considering the actors that they're working with the pictures could be so much better.
annundriel: (SG-1)
There was nothing on TV tonight, so Mom and I finally watched The Ark of Truth )

Meanwhile, you know what I love? I love that scene in "Hide & Seek" where John pushes Rodney off the balcony. Do we ever see him smile like that again? He's just so excited and eager and gollygeewhizwow open as he runs down the steps. Not to mention how adorable Rodney is. Plus, there's the whole, "Oh, believe me, that's not the first thing we tried." "I shot him. In the leg." Then the little "in-vuln-erable."

Oh, man. See? This is what I was talking about with SG-1. I don't watch SGA for a while and I forget how much I love them. Which is maybe a good thing. Distance myself and then come back and enjoy it all again.
annundriel: (These Words of War (sga))
Mom brought this up.

Near the end of The Kindred, II )
annundriel: (These Words of War (sga))
There's only so much packing I can take before give up on being methodical, throw up my hands, and yell, "Screw it!" while throwing stuff in a bag.

Okay. That's not true. I don't throw things in a bag. I yell, "Screw it!" and then take a break. Then after some time doing other things (usually goofing off), it's back to packing.

At least I don't have to do the dorm move in/move out thing anymore. Woo.

Back to Teyla and my post yesterday. )
annundriel: (Against Black Silences (sga))
Just a thought about Teyla and season four. Let's see if I can get it out without confusing and/or hurting myself. And maybe it will even make a little sense.

Teyla grew up in Pegasus... )

I guess I should add that I'm pretty unspoiled for the rest of the season as well as season five, so maybe the writers will handle themselves better than I worry they will.

And now that I've written all that, I have no idea if it's clear. But I'm going to leave it and maybe read over it later.

Oh, TV

Feb. 5th, 2008 11:24 pm
annundriel: (More TV (house))
If I didn't already love Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and Conan O'Brien, I certainly would now. Plus, though I missed the fight last night, I did get to see Jon interview Tim Gunn. I can't remember his answer to Jon's question about why we should care about Fashion Week, but I loved it. He's just so articulate and intelligent and put together. Oh, Tim.

I miss Santino and his Tim impressions.

Honestly, I'm finding this season of Project Runway a tiny bit dull. There's just no one that I really love. I like a couple of the designers more than others, but it's not a great deal more. Although I do really dislike Christian. Mostly I want to whack him upside the head. Sometimes he shows signs of being less annoying, but then he goes and does something arrogant and immature and I'm back to wanting to smack him. And while I've liked several of his designs, I'm not blown away or anything. Which is basically how I feel about pretty much everyone so far. Sad.

Meanwhile, that SGA season five casting spoiler? )

Also, House was totally wonderful tonight.
annundriel: (Stained My Eyes (sga))
Carter, Keller, and McKay?

Pre-episode thoughts, aka I have way too much time in which to think about this stuff )

Now I'm going to go watch Torchwood and be wonderfully distracted.
