First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR dear flist! Hope 2009 was good to you, and 2010 will be just as good if not better! ;)


Been busy the past couple of days and keep forgetting to post here...which is why there ended up being three twitter posts back to back to back. *shakes head* Hate when I let that happen. Major fail!


So some of the things that have been going on:


- Got my hair cut...It's a lot shorter than it was and the shortest it's been in a long time. I did take before/after pics, but won't be posting those until I get pink back into it and have a final pic. Had a set back when I tried to put it in the day I got the haircut. The pink (it's a different brand b/c Hot Topic stopped selling the stuff I've been using for years) didn't take. I'm not sure why it didn't. I'm gonna try again tomorrow. If it still doesn't wanna work, I'll just have to wait until I get back to school where I still have enough left of the brand that DOES work. And I found it online so I can definitely order more.


- Put away the Christmas stuff yesterday and ended up with many battle wounds. O.o The trees just didn't want to go quietly after surviving the onslaught of cat attacks they'd gotten for a week. This is why I didn't take any pictures of them this year - they were kitteh jungle gyms almost immediately. The only minions of mine that didn't surrender to the attacks were Jack Sparrow and Indiana Jones. Even Yoda couldn't keep the cats at bay! LoL.


- Team U.S.A for hockey was announced today and Kesler is on the roster! XD They are the underdog team, but now I have a definite reason to root for them!


Alrighty, think that's it for now.

Just wanted to make a quick post and say I hope everyone had a good Holidaymas!


Mine wasn't anything to get all excited about. The highlight was going to see Sherlock Holmes (after an impromptu trip to the bowling alley, where Smurf beat me by FOUR PINS! O.O). It was an AWESOMEPOPS movie! Everything I had hoped from it was there....all of it was awesomeness. That was some GOOD casting, putting Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law together. They had the banter down PERFECTLY...made the WHOLE movie (that and the amazing OST!). It was very, very, very reminiscent of Jack and Daniel. For seriously. If you are a fan of the J/D banter, methinks you'll love this movie!


I need to make a list of the small pile of shiny I got this year. I think I'll do that tomorrow night after I take one thing back and exchange it for a few smaller things (including the Sherlock Holmes OST). Definitely didn't get as much this year...not that THAT matters. It's just interesting to see the contrasts of one year to the next!


Alrighty...time to watch some more Canucks awesomeness.

(Those who know me well enough know who I'm talking about)...


But yeah, as to why I'm placing blame again...


Got to open the traditional Christmas Eve gift...


It's Left 4 Dead 2! 


XD XD XD XD


Installing it now...Madre figured she'd let me open this one tonight so I'd have fun with it since I can't really tomorrow with all of Smurf's family coming over.


I'm tres excited to massacre some zombies...and it's all his fault!

dannysgirlsg1: (Serenity - River Point)
~ Got all the way through my Firefly rewatch today. Took me just over a week (since I spent most of my free time when NOT at work doing those damn holiday cards). All I have left is Serenity (which I didn't have time to watch all of before my shift was over). I think this is the first time I've ever watched all of the episodes on the DVDs...I know i've watched Serenity six million times on the DVDs (ironically, it was the FIRST this I ever watched in the box), but not much with the Firefly eps. Anywho, I'm very happy I did this. Reminded me why I love the fandom so much! :)


~ We're gonna have a rather enjoyable X-mika after all! I know the last thing I mentioned about it was we were getting funds and I'd be getting my jersey. Well, things happened and it looked like we wouldn't be able to have any kind of holiday at all....and then...we DID get the money we were hoping to get. So X-mika, and ya know...lasting from week to week....is back on! Huzzah!


~ Cannot wait for the [livejournal.com profile] dv_exchange  to bust wide open!! I'm soooooooooooo hungry for lovely DV-ness in vid and fic form!! I'm getting impatient, I'm so excited!! I hope I'm not the only one!


~ Kittehs and X-mika trees do not mix well. Kittehs are winning the battle AND the war...they've ambushed the angel and taken out Frodo, Christopher Robin, Bugs Bunny, and one of my 'year' bears. I'm fearing for Jack Sparrow, Indiana Jones, and Gandalf. (Also, don't you just LOVE all my ornaments?! Such geek love for my tree!)


~ Just a funny observation: Love how I get a whole slew of new followers (and I mean legitimate 'I will definitely follow back' followers) after tweeting with Lexa. As taraleesg1 put it, I'm in the in-crowd. It's a weird feeling...I'm not THAT interesting, am I?? Alrighty, think that's it for now. Hoping the Canucks can take this game back.


~Pip


P.S. I've put a link to my formspring in the links menu, if you'd like to ask a question (any question), just go ahead and click.


P.S. (squared): HOE-MG, SOOOO many 'Penance' shiny icons to choose from! It's TORTURE!!! They're all so prettehful!

So, here's things:


- FINISHED my assignment for the [livejournal.com profile] dv_exchange . I am VERY happy about this for a couple reasons. First is I like what I did with the assignment I received. Not that I HAVEN'T liked my past assignments, but considering how I went in expecting to do one prompt and randomly did another is...weirdly satisfactory. The second is because it's DONE, out of the way, ready to be posted when posting opens. Means I can focus on these damn holiday cards!


~ My TV died (meaning the dorm room TV, not the home TV. THAT would be epic!tragedy!). I turned it on this morning JUST to see what Gilmore Girls ep was ending (so I knew which would be on later), and it kinda spazzed out (sound wise - no picture ever came on the screen) and then just...stayed off. I tried unplugging and replugging it. Nothing. The thing is ded. D-E-D, ded. The good news is we have a spare tv at home that I can bring back after Christmas break (if Smurf can't fix it), and thankfully this TV (now dubbed 'Kawalsky' by a loyal Twitter follower) decided to kick it two days before I go home. Also, isn't nice to know i can have a pretty decent sense of humor about it:






- The one thing I REALLY wanted for X-mika (a Canucks home jersey, customized with Kesler's name)?? I'm going to be getting it AFTER all. With Madre's surgery (which is tomorrow, at 7 am...JOY! *sigh*), it didn't seem like we'd have much of a X-mika. And I know it's not about the presents...it's never BEEN about that. Still I know Madre felt bad about not getting me what I wanted (of TWO things, the other being the Farscape boxset). But, we've come into some money and Madre has informed me my jersey, whether it's in time for X-mika or not, will be the first this she gets with this money. THIS is why I love my mommy. She really is the bestest!


- Found THIS watching Under the Mistletoe Sunday evening, and I was greatly pleased:

Cutted for size... )

Alrighty, I think that's it for tonight. I volunteered to polish off the last of the undisclosed beverage drink in the freezer, so the world is a bit spinny right now and brain is a bit mucked up. ;)


~Pip


P.S. - With all this L4D gameplay (all Kilplix and friends at this point) I've been watching lately and seeing how tied in these guys are to specific characters, I have to wonder - What character does Shanks like to play most?? Does he have a preference (and I'm assuming he would)...it's something to ponder, I think. *shrugs*

Yeah, I won't be getting much time of that in the coming weeks...let's see here:


- I have 21 Holiday Cards I am hand making and sending out to people. I will be cutting down on some of the work by making copies of some of the pieces. There is NO WAY I can hand draw this stuff 21 different times. It's just easier to pay the money (since my printer is out of ink) to make the copies. Less stress on my sanity...since I have so many other things to rip what's left of it away.


- There's my [livejournal.com profile] dv_exchange assignment that needs to be finished. That, to my complete surprise and relief, is coming together with very little hassle. There have been a few problems, but nothing that couldn't be solved with a little quick thinking. My GOAL is to maybe, hopefully, perhaps have it finished before I go home next Thursday.


- When I DO go home, I'll have to help take care of Madre. She is going in for surgery Wednesday morning for a hysterectomy (this is that personal issue I mentioned a while back that I never actually elaborated on). This means *I* will be the main house-keeper-upper while I'm home for X-mika. Add on top of that the fact that I'll also be WORKING over X-mika break. I can't just go three weeks at home without working. I NEED the dineros. Oh, and as a side note, SyFail in all it's EPICLY FANTASTIC TIMING is showing MERIDIAN on Wednesday. Way to make sure I'm a worried mess that day!


- Finals are next week. The fact that I feel I'll do the best on my math exam frightens me a bit. I am so completely unprepared for the other two, though I'm hoping to rectify that problem this weekend with mucho studying (much like I did last year for my physical anthro. class). On the plus side, this means I have NO CLASSES until January. HUZZAH! Of course next semester's schedule, as y'all have already seen, is gonna be crazy. It's very unlikely I'll get to do what I want for my birthday because of it, but nothing can be done about that. Three of the classes I'll be taking are required (including that French class). *shrugs* Oh well.


Alrighty, want to crack down on this assignment. I may just be able to get it finished tonight if the proper flow and drive from the brabbits comes nicely!


~Pip


Also, with Lu's amazing performance and deserved shutout tonight, using that icon to celebrate him! Because...ya know...he rocks awesomepops!

Was just over checking Lifetime's schedule for December with the intent of finding Under the Mistletoe listed somewhere...


And I found it! XD


Under the Mistletoe will be shown Sunday, Dec. 6th at 5 pm (EST) on Lifetime.


Make a note since that's still a bit off, though I'm sure it'll be repeated again (the announcement, not the movie...it's not showing up again in the schedule as I keep going through it) by me (and probably on MSOL).


Just thought I'd get a jump on it and give a early heads up now before I forgot to.

Yeah, I don't even know if I spelled those right! *snirk* But why did I just use a holiday song for my subject line??


Because, like last year, I am making the offer to send out Holiday cards to all who would like to receive one. I didn't end up making any/sending them out last year b/c I didn't have enough interested to really put any effort into it. But after asking first on the Twitterwebz, I have enough interested this time to make it actually happen. So now I'm bringing the offer to my beloved flist on LJ!


They are strictly 'holiday season' themed cards - more for the celebration of warm fuzzies and good friends and family than any strictly 'RELIGIOUS' holiday. SG-1 is the general theme of the cards, of course, but if you'd like a specific sub-theme within it (Daniel/Vala, Daniel/Jack, Original Team Only, S.10 team only, etc...) I would gladly accommodate.


Now I am not expecting anything in return - this is the giving season after all. Of course, if you want to send a card or whatsuch back, I am not one to turn down an offer. LOOOOVE getting mail (who doesn't?! It's so damn exiting!! XD), so yeah...I'm totally up for the idea of you sending one back.


Anywho, just drop a comment here if you'd like to receive a card and if you have a specific theme you'd like to get, mention that in the comment to. Don't need anything else right now - when the time comes to get everyone's address, I'll just PM you. ;)

 
So please, I wanna send all my lovely friends something for the holidays! Take up the offer if you wanna get some awesome SG-themed holiday artwork stuff. I promise you my idea this year is pretty epic... XD

Okie donkie, I was gonna do this whole big post about how my X-mika went (it was fantabulastic, btw) in detail, but I'm too damn tired to drag it all out. So instead, I'm posting a list of stuff I managed to obtain this year (and yeah - I definitely cleaned up! She can work the corner all she wants if you ask me! XP) - and I've decided to add some commentary to stuff that has a fun story or what to it... (though the main reason for this list is for records sake).
