dannysgirlsg1: (HG - Peeta Interview)

So I saw The Hunger Games at a midnight premiere last night, and then again this afternoon (and am already planning on seeing it again tomorrow...so yeah...you can kinda see where my thoughts will go). And I have thoughts. 

Note: This is the same post I made on my Tumblr.

SPOILERS AHOY (for both the movie and the books) )

So here's things...


~ Have started a new book (well, started it last week, but that's neither here nor there). If you couldn't tell from the subject line, it's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. And I'm absolutely loving it! I'm not quite halfway through it yet (doing stuff for French class takes up a lot of free time). It was mostly the premise and cover that caught my attention since I've never read the original (not really a big Jane Austen fan), and I'm very satisfied by what I'm getting from it. The one downside is it makes me want to slaughter some zombies myself in L4D2, but I can't do that until Smurf gets a hold of all the stuff to upgrade Lord Danny so the game is actually...ya know...playable on him! Otherwise, the book is fantastic.


~ HOE-MG, how much do I love Gibbs and Tony?!?! Like for seriously, they are just amazing. It was that very Jack/Daniel familiarness about them that made me fall in love with the show to begin with and that's what we got in tonight's episode. *sigh* Such love for them, Tony/Ziva, and the show as a whole! Sad there's no new episode next week (but also glad that SYTYCD is over right now so I can watch the episodes when they premiere).


~ I really hope the NHL big wigs don't frell up and do what's right in the whole Burrows debacle that came out of last night's game. I'm not going to get into much detail about it here, but lets just say HOPEFULLY the bad ref calls that have been going on for some time now will be taken care of. Last night it was just beyond ridiculous. If anyone is interested on reading up on what I'm talking about, you can find three different posts about it HERE, HERE, and HERE. I'm taking the side of Burrows, of course. Biased as a Canucks fan aside, fans and those connected to the NHL all over have (for the most part) been siding the same. When even the broadcasters for the WINNING TEAM (b/c the Canucks did NOT win the game last night - mostly because of those BAD calls) say it was the worst refereed game they had seen, you know something hinky is going on. So the NHL is deciding on it now. We'll see how it goes.


Alrighty, I have a little bit of French work to get done. *sigh* Back to the school-time grind. ;P


~Pip


P.S.: You know it's bad when I, with the house I live in, can't concentrate on what I'm trying to post because a roommate is being SO FUCKING LOUD! My door was already closed so I couldn't just slam my door or something like that. I had to put my headphones on and turn on music - ridiculous.

P.S. (squared): *points to song* SUCH a DV song! That is all.

dannysgirlsg1: (Nucks - VanCan)
Got to watch Between Two Fires tonight. It's the first SG-1 ep SyFail has shown in the normal slot since September. So that was very pleasing, especially since it's such a great Jack/Daniel episode.


But that happy YAY feeling is gone now...In a horrible mood, and it doesn't help that this game is terrible tonight. Nucks are only down 1, but still...there is NO offense tonight. They've spent almost all night in their OWN zone. So being down 1 is actually pretty grim. They still have time - they just need to pick it up the 3rd period.


I started the 'His Dark Materials' series for my Religion class. Now halfway through The Golden Compass. My goal is to finish it by the end of this weekend and hopefully get The Amber Spyglass started. I don't have a lot of time until I have to do the paper for this one, so I want to get as much textual evidence as possible. What's helping me get through it so fast is that I'm liking it very much (and that it reads a lot like LOtR, IMHO).


And yep...that's about it.

OH, and

GO CANUCKS GO.

So I just got back from seeing Angels & Demons at the SLC...


...Yeah, to say I'm disappointed is an understatement! I'm just...idk how to describe it.


See, I can usually go into a movie like this objectively. I understand there will be differences between film and novel and try to think of them as two separate entities.


But coming off of The Da Vinci Code, I had HIGH expectations for this movie. Ron Howard was pretty damn true to the Da Vinci Code book, so I figured he'd do the same with Angels & Demons.


WOWSERS...yeah...nevermind.


They basically ass-raped one of my favorite books.

I've started considering just having a little notebook with me at all times so when I hear good quotes for subject lines, I'll have a nice collection to go off of. LoL!

Have a cut to spare the flist space! ;) )


Alrighty - I think that's it for now. I need to go wash my dishes (exciting, huh?) and then possibly study. I kinda know I'll end up NOT studying, but I'm gonna TRY to at least! XP


~Pip


P.S. - October is my LEAST favorite month on SyFail. SG-1 is showing a total of FIVE times all month - all of them in the late slot on friday nights. I'm sorry, but it's really NOT necessary to show horror movies ALL through the month of October. The last week, sure. But not for 31 fucking days! GRR!

dannysgirlsg1: (Michael - Canucks Adorkableness)
Oh, how Glee just kicked it off fucking fantastically tonight. That show really is such a fantabulastic fun amazing thing. LoL. I may need to go and download tonight's episode. What I wouldn't give to see an actual football team go and do that in the middle of a game! (I could see it happening - like as a Senior prank or something like that).


Finally watching some Canucks! XD Well, actually I'm listening to it at this exact moment since I can't really update my journal AND watch the game. But I'm happy I finally get to WATCH some hockey rather than live vicariously through NHL.com and my Google desktop. Even if the Canucks are kinda losing right now (that's how it goes, though, isn't it?), I don't really mind. It IS still pre-season stuff.


Now I won't lie and say I'm ignorant to my own writing ability. It's one of the things, even if I say otherwise at times, I know I'm pretty damn good at. But even I impressed myself today. That paper on Narnia is due tomorrow. 1500 words. Nothing hard, really. But I felt more than unprepared and figured I'd have a hard time getting any coherent argument going. I only read L,W,W and part of Voyage of the Dawn Treader, so definitely felt unprepared. And then, all of a sudden, I found my argument and got the entire paper knocked out in an hour and a half. For some comparison, my roommate started the paper on Sunday and read ALL the required reading for it, was still working on it earlier this afternoon. But yeah...I'm really surprised. I was worried I'd still be working on the damn thing by this time. And yet, I'm not. LoL.


I, sadly, have decided I won't be rereading LOtR for this same religion class. I need to get a headstart on the Harry Potter reading, and I know LOtR well enough to not NEED to read it again (five times already). I WANT to read it, but she's not making it required to read it all and I want to enjoy the books and read them right. Maybe by the time summer comes around again, I'll find the time to give LOtR my sixth read. I hope so. I sooo love the serious.


Alrighty, before I forget, I wanna go check out iTunes and maybe incorporate some new tunes into Remmie. ;)

Just a few updates on things and such:


- Haven't heard back about the whole major change/advising situation yet. Figured I wouldn't, but I was still hopeful. I'm gonna wait, see what happens this week. I have too much to do to deal with it directly right now. By friday, if I haven't heard anything, I'll go to the advising first directly and see what's up.

- Because I have completely AWESOME friends on twitter, I now have the means to pay for the first month of GameCenter. I can't watch the game going on right now b/c the transfer of funds from my paypal account into my bank account hasn't gone through yet (paypal said by Wednesday, it should be there), but I will be able to watch games once the season officially starts! *dances* And it gives me plenty of time to save up money for when it'll come out next month. Still considering getting rid of netflix, too. It's a hard decision, though.

- NCIS tomorrow night! Have been waiting anxiously to see what happens, and from the preview I've seen, I think my shippy little NCIS brabbits are going to be pleased. Honestly, even if it's just the usual UST between Tony and Ziva, I'll be happy. Going all summer without it in a new form was torture!

- I haven't forgotten about the vids from D*C that haven't been posted. Or other various things I never got posted (pics and such, con-related and otherwise) - I'll try my best to get those types of things posted asap. Probably not until Thursday, right now, at the earliest. I have too much school work to deal with, on TOP of other fandom obligations.

Alrighty, I have to go wash my dishes and then I'm hoping to finish The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. I have less than a 100 pages to go, and the book is so easy to read that I have NO EXCUSE for not finishing it tonight! I might even start Voyage of the Dawn Treader as well (yes, I know i'm skipping a few, but i need to read the ones relative to the class and PAPER - due Thursday - first).

To all who know what Skittles is...Bacon is an equivalent! ;D

So I figured I'd post a little bit since I have a little bit to post about! Yaaay!

In which I ramble...such a shock, I know! )


Okie donkie, now that I've rambled on about nothing imparticular, I'm gonna head off and probably have a good ol' time catching up with my Tweeps, who I have selfishly ignored today. ;P

To start, Happy Independence Day to all my fellow US flisters! Hope you guys had a good one!! And too all my non-US flisters, happy 4th anyways! XD

It's weird...for the first time in months, I had a day with nothing posted on it since LT took a dive. I was really hoping to get to posting yesterday, but I really didn't have much to post about to begin with. I DO need to catch up on reply to comments (apologies about that! You guys know how I get sometimes!), so I'm gonna get that knocked out after this post.


I DO have something exciting to post about today, though! (And the 4th of July, of all days. Rather awesomepops in my opinion) - WE GOT A POOL!!! *dances* It's one of those above ground ones, but it's not one of the dinky cheap ones either. It has an 18 ft. diameter and is 4 ft. deep. Smurfinator went out and bought it today...why TODAY out of the last FOUR years we've been bitching about not having a pool he decided to finally do it, idk. But I'm not complaining. I was in it already...straightening out the wrinkles in the bottom as they were starting to fill it up with water. Unfortunately, I have to work tomorrow so I won't get to enjoy it until tomorrow night, but still...OMFG. We ACTUALLY haz a pool!!! XD


The results of the video poll are in, and Stand is the definite winner. So tomorrow while I'm in the box, I'll burn a copy to send of to Creation for Chicago Con. I'm not sure how well it's gonna do, but it's better than sending nothing at all.


I think I might have given up on the Victor Sketch. You may have noticed I haven't posted an update on it in a while, and today I started to work on it some more and the inspiration/skill wouldn't come to me. I might pick it back up or just go with what I have already. But I've already started putting effort into another 'project' to take the place of the Victor sketch, so don't expect much right now for said sketch.


Oh, I have decided after a lovely conversation on twitter that I am going to be getting Mega Snake signed by Michael. And while he's signing it, I'll kindly inform him I was the one who got it at Wal-Mart....and did it with massive glee and bouncing. Yes, I know I'm an evil fangirl.


Expect some pic posts soon. I've got a handful of what I snapped in S.FL, and I've also got lots of new pretty to decorate my room with (thanks in large part to [livejournal.com profile] belisse ! XD), so there will be more update room pics coming too (b/c my room is a damn art project all to itself and needs updates just like any other project of mine!).


Alrighty, I've got comments to reply to, a list to update, and then the previous mentioned project (Victor sketch replacement one) to bitch over some more, so that's it for tonight.

~Pip

P.S. - The name of that book I was too lazy to get the other night is 'Adventure! Thrilling Tales of Discovery'. It's a collection of adventure tales (both fiction and non) in an Indiana Jones-esk type way...it was the Indy lettering on the cover that caught my eye to begin with. I'm excited to read it...if I ever get to it through my massive to-be-read list! *sigh*

Yes, I did watch Ghost Busters. *snirk*

We are back home now from vacay...twas fun and went by too damn fast, but I'm glad to finally be home. It's so exhausting going on vacay (like right now, I'm wicked tired and there's really no reason why I should be. Totally vacation's fault), which is ironic when you think about it. How are you expected to completely relax when you're not at home sleeping in your own bed? 

But it was good to go back HOME, as in HOME HOME. It didn't actually FEEL like vacation since I lived there for 16.5 years. Getting to see a lot of the people we know from there and knowing that people are actually missing us was nice. Here, in Louisiana, it doesn't feel like people really care...they don't really invite us anywhere or want to do things with us. Whole different story back in FL.

More of my 'vacay' goals were accomplished on Sunday. I knew the latest issue of SG magazine came out last Tuesday, so I kept going around looking for it. Of course every Borders I checked had the previous issue only. But Sunday, I was able to get into a Barnes and Noble and they had it. Also picked up the latest Scifi Magazine, which I've been meaning to get for weeks now (there is a brief interview with Michael about being on SGU, so yeah...had to get that). And of course, being the avid book addict I am, I had to check out the bargain section (which, in B&N, is always so huge and orgasmic!). Managed to get a book of 'adventure stories' for $10 (I would tell y'all the actual title, but it's upstairs and I'm being too lazy to go and get it).

Well, I was going to head over to LoudTwitter to set up automatic cuts with my twitposts (b/c I can't have a repeat of Sunday night's post...I had forgotten about it before going to bed, and then was too busy with getting back home to get on and take care of it - MAJOR APOLOGIES for that!). But alas, LT's site won't work, so I have to do the cutting manually until the site is back up. So obnoxious.

Alrighty, I think there was more, but Smurfinator jumped on the comp and now he is watching one of those annoying 'ticker channel' where all they do is talk loud and argue at each other...and the worst one of the channels at that. So now I've kinda lost the urge to post more... I do have a few other things I wanted/need to post, but their more of the individual posts type things.

Managed to get a book of 'adventure stories' for $10 (I would tell y'all the actual title, but it's upstairs and I'm being too lazy to go and get it).

Well, I was going to head over to LoudTwitter to set up automatic cuts with my twitposts (b/c I can't have a repeat of Sunday night's post...I had forgotten about it before going to bed, and then was too busy with getting back home to get on and take care of it - MAJOR APOLOGIES for that!). But alas, LT's site won't work, so I have to do the cutting manually until the site is back up. So obnoxious.

Alrighty, I think there was more, but Smurfinator jumped on the comp and now he is watching one of those annoying 'ticker channel' where all they do is talk loud and argue at each other...and the worst one of the channels at that. So now I've kinda lost the urge to post more... I do have a few other things I wanted/need to post, but their more of the individual posts type things.

Yesterday's back to back tweet post was, as the last one, not intentional. I had really planned to be home in time to post before the tweet post was...posted (I fear there is too much use of the word 'post' in that sentence!).

But as usual, my original plans never go as...planned.

In which I rant about nastiness *bleh* )


Now for other news:

We have lost one of our kittens. Think Nanny laid on top of her poor little baby and killed it. So sad, too, because it was such a sweet little kitteh. Named it Nemo. *sniff* In other kitteh drama, Sikozu has not been being nice to Fiona. No idea why, really. I honestly think Fiona is instigating it, and then crying like a baby when Sikozu tries to show her who's boss. I know it's just normal cat stuff, but seeing as we go on vacay in a week, I don't want to come home and find Fi bleeding to death b/c Sikozu showed her who's boss just a little too much while unsupervised!

Have started up reading the Burn Notice novel again. I went back and decided to just start from the beginning (wasn't very far in, so it's not like it's a big deal). And it's not that the book is horrible - it's actually very good and very in character. I just got swamped with RL stuff and the Twitterwebz this past month...plus trying to stay on top of other things. I plan to do some serious catch-up reading this week and hope to have the book knocked out by the time we're ready to head off to FL.

I think I've decided to vid Rock Star. I'll have to see what Madre has decided about me using her laptop to vid, and if I have the right selection of clips to do it, but it's definitely what I'm leaning towards at this point.

SPEAKING of laptops, another new plan concerning Lord Danny's wellbeing. Smurfinator is taking me to Sam's tomorrow (which is where I got Lord Danny) since my warranty is still good. We are going to see what they say. I think what they'll probably tell me is it's just worth it to invest in a new laptop (possibly replace Lord Danny). At this point, I don't really care. As long as I get my own laptop back within the next few weeks, I'll be happy with whatever is decided on. I can't do this sharing business for much longer or I'll go wonko!

Okie donkie - there is something else I need to say, but it is of a PSA-nature, so it deserves it's own post altogether!
