Damn you Michael Shanks! Why'd you have to go and make a movie in Germany?!

While college shopping with my mom, we ran into another mother and daughter college shopping in the detergent aisle, and the girl was also headed for UO. Just like 40% of Oregon, but it's still fun.
On a related note, I have Apple Mango Tango laundry detergent. I'm going to have the fruitiest-smelling clothes in Carson.

And finally the hairpins I've been looking EVERYWHERE for.

The Stargate magazine assures us that Carson Beckett will return for TWO EPISODES this season. Woot!
All the news on the TV movies for SG-1 points to some pretty awesome shit happening. I wish they'd quit taunting us and show them already.
Michael Shanks and Christopher Judge are developing their own tv show, called Rage of Angels, and I damn well better get to see it. Shanks is playing Luficer. (!!)
I so want a Col. John Sheppard action figure, because he's got the smirk and the messy hair and is just so funny to look at and yet so perfect. If they havent made Rodney yet they need to put on his "I'm a genius and you're an idiot" face.

I'm happy I'll be living on the fifth floor, because I can take the stairs and fit back into all my jeans in no time. I'd just better remember to do my inner leg exercises so I don't get freaking runner's knee again. That was such a bitch.

Alas, I have no more white mocha. But I do have chocolate-covered pretzels!

Midterms are over! Okay, so I only had one, but it wasn't a complete breeze. It was also at 9 am. So I got up at 7 to study, and went back to bed at 7:30. On the bright side, it was the only school-related thing I had to do today. A nice, early end to a very interesting week.

Last weekend, video games. Mostly Mario Kart; I suck at driving, partly because it goes much faster than the old Super Nes game, but I'm pretty good at sitting on the back and throwing shit at people when somebody else is driving. Seriously, I tried Rainbow Road and I fell off about twenty times. And always in the same places on DK Mountain (the damned bridge!) and Bowser's Castle. I really can't get the hang of turning. And also we were at first playing three people on a 13 inch screen, and I had the hyper-sensitive controller, and it just made for a lot of losing on my part. But anyway: it was fun. Jessica also has the old Sonic games which I used to play all the time when I had a Sega (back in the day).

The first part of Monday was lame, all my classes were a waste of time. In history we had discussion gorups, which are useless because the students don't really know anything. And even if they did, I am not in the mood to talk to people at nine in the morning. Especially on a Monday. In Longsword we had a sub, and in German we had a sub, and learned nothing new. Work was about the usual (note to self: if working at the library next year, break up shift). Michael Shanks was bizarro on 24 (and is returning to Stargate tonight after three weeks, so excuse me if I bounce off the walls), and I missed everything he said in his first scene because I was trying not to laugh my ass off. Jessica had the same problem. It's a little weird when you see somebody playing the same character for so long, a nice character, and then see him play an evil sneaky bastard. It was interesting. It's just like James Spader: the first time I saw either of them, they were playing this awesome, sweet character (the same one, actually!) and later I discover they can be downright creepy when they want to.

Wednesday, I skipped class. I woke up with my alarm at 8, and decided the hell with it. Nothing important was going on in classes, and I was just too damn tired to get out of bed. I think that part of that may have had something to do with my allergy medicine, because I ran out of the good stuff and have been forced to take Zyrtec, which makes me drowsy. But in any case, I took the day off, slept for three more hours, and spent the day doing homework. I spent yesterday afternoon and evening watching a hell of a lot of Voyager on the internet.

Stargate is tonight! and Daniel is back! and I can't remember what the hell is going on in Atlantis, because I never do. I have homework to do this weekend and I'm not happy about it.

Reasons I'm happy today (despite it being Monday and work being more boring than usual):

 - I'm a brunette again (my roots were clashing with the red)
 - I have a white hot chocolate from Starbucks
 - Michael Shanks will be on 24 next week (!!!)
 - I have manageable homework now that I dropped Old English (honestly, I can translate Beowulf on my own at this point)
 - I know it's spring, because my muse has woken up and is poking at me steadily saying "write...write...write..."
 - Stargate is so BACK (and soon to be whupping ass in as many as three galaxies - once Daniel's back in the show, of course)
 - I read an excerpt from the third book in the Inheritance trilogy (Eragon was the first) which made me remember, GOD, just how much I love those books and I really hope it's coming out this summer, because that would be kick-ass if I got that AND Harry Potter. . .but then I would be out of things to read

Speaking of Eragon, I had the most bizarre dream about the movie, but it wasn't the movie exactly and for some reason Ben Browder was in it. Saphira wasn't, and neither was Eragon, actually, although Jeremy Irons did make an apperrance. I don't know what the hell that was all about, but now I want to read the books again. They are, unfortunately, a good 70 miles away at the moment.

Jessica and I finally finished watching SG-1! Okay, we skipped two episodes. But they were clip shows and one of them is my absolute least favorite episode. Onward Atlantis! (And after that, Firefly!)

Yay, new icons. Because I can only have six of the damn things at once, being too poor for the paid account and too stubborn to show ads, and I was getting kind of tired of the old ones anyway. Also when icon-hunting last night (which always makes me hyper to begin with) I stumbled across some interesting SG-1 spoilerish things. I already knew about the prior thing, but these pics actually have me looking forward to the episode instead of dreading it. Partly I just want to see Vala sitting on Daniel's lap and Jack rubbing his hair (glee!). I am so damn excited for the rest of the series. I'm going to miss those guys.

I finished another video today (woot!), which wasn't easy since the gorram thing crashed on me every two minutes. Windows Movie Maker will be my undoing. But, I haven't been this proud of a video since my Drunken Pirates one and next on my list is a Firefly/Serenity to Bon Jovi's Blaze of Glory. Should be fun, once I spend five days or so gathering the footage.

Hooray for cheesy low-budget made-for-tv Canadian flicks with Michael Shanks! (as well as a gaggle of other Stargate alumni). Well. At least it had acting.

Now to figure out what to do with the rest of my night.
