Which Characteristic From the Samurai Code Matches You Best? (You may find out your best trait)
brought to you by Quizilla

Four things to talk about in this post. First, on Friday, my parents and I went to see Something's Gotta Give with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton. Hilarious movie although I didn't need to see Jack's ass or Diane naked. I was also disappointed by Amanda Peet's strip tease. Ah well.

My mother's birthday was yesterday so my dad has taken her out to see Harry Connick Jr. this evening. I meanwhile I'm running Windows Update and such on their computer. My parents are dial-up in a T1 world so this is taking forever of course.

In case you are keeping score I will be working at the Roxbury Community College starting next semester. Wheelock turned me down today. This will be three mornings a week for a total of 10 hours and does not pay so I will continue to have no money coming in.

Speaking of no cash flow, I haven't finished my Christmas shopping. I will finish it tomorrow if it kills me.

~*~What Simpsons Character Are You?~*~
brought to you by Quizilla

I was looking for something holiday themed but I was distracted by this.

Anywho, I might not be posting for awhile as I am going home for a well deserved break. Truthfully, my posting may become more sporadic next semester ( They'll still happen don't you worry.) due to a full load of classes and a job. (Wherever it may be.)

If I can't continue with my reviews, I just want you all to know I enjoyed writing them probably more than you enjoyed reading them.

Happy Holidays

It Continues

I had my second interview today. It went better than I feared last night and my possible supervisors are very nice. They did not hire me on the spot and, frankly, I'd be surprised if I'm not working in Roxbury next semester but hopefully I'm wrong. I think I accurately portrayed that I know many of the skills and am a quick learner. Again that teacher's name was brought up, this time not by me, with a similar reaction.

Last night, I played Trivial Pursuit with Her and a couple other friends. I won, although, I think on some level, I was trying to let Her win. Instead of "Harlem," I said a street was named after Malcolm X in SOHO.

It Has Begun

Today, I had the first of the two interviews. I had allowed myself an hour and forty-five minutes to get there and it took only an hour- fifteen. The interview, including tour, took twenty minutes. I was hired on the spot which makes me question just why I want this job. It certainly isn't the money... So anyway, I'll have a job next semester no matter how well it goes tomorrow. During the interview, I name dropped the professor of my Online Information class and the two people interviewing me exchanged the funniest look: I'd categorize it as the "poor child" look. It was all I could do not to crack up.

Busy Week

Well, the plan to go home tomorrow is shot to hell. Wednesday and Thursday I have job interviews. The first interview will require me to change subway trains twice. I've never done this let alone by myself. I think this makes me more nervous then the actual interview itself. The downside to this job is the long trip to get there and not getting paid.

The other interview on Thursday is just next door and pays but I think these people may be more picky since it involves money.

Tomorrow, I have errands to run. I need laundry detergent and a birthday present for my mother. I'm also going to apply for another job here at my school library. I'm not sure when I'll be able to fit in an interview though. It'll have to be Thursday I guess.

When I go home on Friday, I'm going into a coma. (If you look at my entries before previously going home, I'm sure I said the same thing.)

The super-amazing which Family Guy character are you quiz!!! Sixteen different outcomes!!!
brought to you by Quizilla

With the fun stuff out of the way, let's get serious again.

So here I am, alone with her, or at least as alone as one can get in a busy cafeteria, and all we talk about is when we're going home for break; a conversation we already had of course. I suck.

I got a phone call from my father earlier this evening. Because of a death in the church, of a high ranking member, if you will, no less, I could be going home on the bus on Tuesday or getting picked up Friday. Neither option really appeals to me.

Before you all are like "You are narcissistic!" I'm upset by this death as well. When I worked in the office, we worked very closely on a few projects and he taught me how to make mailing labels. (I'm now the only one who'll be thought of when this needs to be done.) He will be greatly missed.

Which Harry Potter character are you? With Pics
brought to you by Quizilla

I know we've all taken a dozen Harry Potter quizzes but I thought, what the hell...

I don't really have much else to say. (Mwahahaha!!) Saddam has now been captured. If this was accomplished ten years ago under Bush Sr., I wonder how our lives would have been different.

On Fox News Sunday this morning Sen. Kerry was asked by Chris Wallace if this event made him want to retract his statement that Bush's foreign policy sucks. Kerry replied, "Not one word." and went on to list for like five minutes all of the president's foreign policy screw-ups such as North Korea, nuclear waste floating around Russia and backing out of the global warming treaties. Wallace then was like "Well, there's all that but..." It reminded me of that scene in Monty Python and the Life of Brian where John Cleese asks his fellow resistance members "What have the Romans done for us?" "A new aqueduct!" This also goes on for five ten minutes. Hilarious movie.

The more exciting news for me is the Sox signing free agent closer Keith Foulke. No closer is perfect, at least not one playing currently, but Foulke is better than most. At the very least, we won't have to ask this season who the closer is as we did at the beginning of last season.

I guess the plan now is to re-sign Nomar and Pedro before their contracts expire so no A-Rod.

The other day when we were discussing baseball, I didn't realize how close the Yankees were to acquiring Javier Vasquez. This does not diminish the strength of the Sox's staff but winning the division may not be as easy as I originally thought. Again, we will have to see.

I am concerned by the second base hole we apparently have for the hundredth time but there's still time to correct this problem. How freaking hard is it to get a second baseman that'll stick around for a few seasons?

He-man was not very action packed but really good none the less. Prompted by a dream he had, Adam goes to see the Sorceress who tells him the story of King Greyskull, who looks a lot like He-man, and his final battle with Hordak. Meanwhile, Hordak contacts Skeletor and orders the other man to free him from his prison. When King Greyskull died, his essence was imbued in his sword to be used by a new champion when evil returned to Eternia. His wife, who had the looks and power of the Sorceress, was placed as guardian of the sword. After the story is finished, He-man goes to stop Skeletor from freeing Hordak. In a strange move, Skeletor destroys Hordak's prison trapping him forever with no chance for escape. Evil-Lynn witnesses this and seems to be planning something. It would have been nice if the episode filled in blanks such as how the Sorceress got the job and more of Adam's destiny. In stuff I read on the internet, it seems not out of the question that She-ra will appear at some point but Hordak couldn't have kidnapped Adora if he was imprisoned in some other dimension so the origin would be different if it happens. The internet rumors were put up way before the episode aired so things may have changed since.

The Christmas episode of Justice League was fairly lame. Where was Diana? It's not like she can go home to celebrate the holidays or that she does. They said where Batman was and the fact they had a holiday episode of his show after, which was good even the second time, makes it possible not to include him. Another question I have is why is Clark wearing glasses around the house. His parents know who he is or they wouldn't wrap his presents in lead. The scenes with GL and Hawkgirl were probably the best part although the snowball fight went on too long. They could have easily had a plot to this episode but decided not to. Ah well...

More Musings

Now that I have more time to think I have things going through my mind. These will be ignored by the readers of my blog but I need to get them off my chest.

How does one know if someone is worth pursuing? What are traits that are too hideous to ignore?

If we share different politics, for example, will a relationship work? I can think of two examples where yes, they do: one with people I know and one celebrity example. My experience seems to suggest that when politics entered the picture the relationship went south.

I used to be hung up on interests, as Lady Vader may remember. I've met someone here that shares music interests (not all but some) down to favorite song. I don't think even She Who Shall Remain Nameless But Blogged About Frequently and I were at that level. (Ok, yes, we both knew all the words to "You'll Be In My Heart" but who doesn't?)

The downside, in this category, as I can see is that she is not into Star Trek! I know interests aren't important and if it came up, I'm pretty sure she'd compromise but I also miss having someone to talk to about sci-fi and I really can't stand explaining it to people who don't watch it. Could I live without it? Frankly, Voyager and now Entrerprise are disappointments. I, however, loved Nemesis even if no one else did. The occasional movie works on both sides I think. (I can't believe I just said that.)

The paragraph on politics was about another woman. This one seems to share my politics. Being really Catholic, we may have a differing view of abortion perhaps but that's not a big deal as far as I'm concerned.

The biggest problem is that I don't get any vibe she feels anything but friendship for me. Honestly, looking back I've only gotten that vibe from one person, we'll refer to her as "Jackie O.", and until I met her, I didn't even know this vibe existed.

Frankly, I'm worried I'm making a deal about nothing. Am I inventing an interest in someone just to combat my loneliness? Honestly, prior to a chat I had with my mother over Thanksgiving break, I never gave this woman a second thought.

Yesterday, I did a Google search on my first love, whom we'll call "Danielle". As Lady Vader and Deuce both know, I fall back into thinking about her when my mind has nothing else to obsess over.

Topic One: Pettite out of Pinstripes. Sweet! (I'm amused he wants Clemens to join him in Houston.) I'm not worried about Kevin Brown. Yes, he had a good year last season but John Burkett had a good year the season before joining the Red Sox and look how that turned out. I will also point out Brown is older.

Topic Two: Financially, the Red Sox pursuing A-Rod makes no sense at all. Financially was the only reason that made sense in trying to dump Manny but, in pursuing A-Rod, this would mean one of only two outcomes: two contract albatrosses or merely exchanging one for larger one. I'll admit that A-Rod is better than Nomar at short. Nomar has been to error prone the past two seasons and his bat was absent during the playoffs. A-Rod will help with problem number one for sure but we'll have to see about the post season when it comes. A-Rod may choke too. He's out of practice in this area. Things may be interesting this season.

frustrating, you like the excitement of
wrapping and hiding presents, and opening a
single door on the Advent Calendar each day.
You like the traditional carols, and probably
teach the children to sing along to them. More
than anyone else, you will probably actually
have a merry Christmas.


What Christmas Carol are you?

Stick a Fork in Me. I'm Done.

I had my last two classes yesterday and today. Yesterday, I received a care package from my mother's church. The purpose of which is to help college students get through finals. When I received mine, I was halfway finished with the last assignment of the semester due this morning. (That's a fun story but I'm too exhausted to relate it.)

Today, I tried to get boots for the second time this week. The first time, on Monday, I was told they had nothing in size 10. Today, all they had in my size was the boots worth $120, $150. A straight male would never pay that much for boots and a gay male would find them way too ugly. So for the next week or so, I will continue to trudge through puddles and snow in my sneakers. I haven't fallen yet but we're due for freezing rain tomorrow...

I may be going home Tuesday. I was going to stay for the party I mentioned earlier but, as I also said earlier, my friends will all be gone by the 17th and this boot thing makes me not want to stray too far from home.

As promised, let me tell you what I thought of Battlestar Galactica: If the original series was that good, there would be two spin-offs. (There was one called Galactica 1980 that told the story of the crew, minus Apollo and Starbuck and maybe Boomer, adjusting to being on Earth.) My main problem with it, and I've said this at least five times, is that this series was done before, albeit shittier. They may be able to do another couple more miniseries but that's about it. I like a female Starbuck, as I've said, and Edward James Olmos is an infinitely better actor than Lorne Greene, or at least his corpse, and adding tension with son was a good call on Moore's part. I know I said this before, but the actor they picked to play Col. Tigh sucked. The original was tough but this guy was an asshole. (Did anybody else notice that, while adding Hispanics and Asians, they dumped the two black characters from the original?) I also thought that, while, James Callis is a good actor, he was too young to play Baltar. There had to be a reason John Collicos was cast in the original part.

While the idea that the Cylons could look human, sounded cool for a spin-off especially, (::nudge nudge::) the Cylon robots they showed in the first five minutes, and then never again as far as I can recall, were totally awesome and should have been shown more.

Show creator, Glen Larson was listed as a consulting producer in the credits. I believe this is analogous to when Roddenberry would give Harve Bennet suggestions such as "Let's have Spock be the second gunman on the Grassy Knoll." and Bennet would say, "That's nice, Gene." and then usher him out of the office. I say let Ronald D. Moore at Knight Rider and Manimal. I'd watch both of them. We'll get Jeri Taylor to come out of retirement to redo Quincy since she was a producer on the original show but I'm afraid we'll need Ira Steven Behr and Robert Hewitt Wolfe to save Automan from the eternal toilet it's currently in.

A Possibly Quick Post Today

Ok, yes, I'm avoidant to a point. I'm half done with the Role of Research paper though. (Still due tommorrow.) I should explain also that I may be highly obsessive but I'm not compulsive. I've compulsively bought one cd but thats it. I am not narcissistic! I care about other people! As far as the histrionic rating, I don't know what to say. On a certain level, I admit do crave the spotlight but on another level I don't want it at all. After reading the definition, yes, I'll admit I'm moderately schizotypal. I guess, on a certain level, I am moderately borderline. After reading the definition of dependent, I should be thankful I wasn't labeled very high.

In other news, Battlestar Galactica will be thoroughly reviewed after it's all done but I will say: Where is Cassiopeia? Will they redo the other episodes?

Many of you who read my blog, and know me well, would you say this is accurate? I am amused by the antisocial level so I guess there's a bright side to this...

Alias:

It was good. Having Will undercover was kinda fun and, even though it's kinda typical TV, having him kill Allison was an interesting twist. I don't have a problem with him going back to Wisconsin. If the Covenent really wanted him dead, they would have found him. Why Sark thought he was dead just implies to me that he's an idiot, one that tortures his own father but an idiot nonetheless.

Not that it's that surprising but apparently "Julia" helped Lazerey fake his own death. Why, I'm still not sure. The fact that Syd apparently willingly had her mind wiped seems to imply Juila is indeed her and did something really bad.

The container of flesh labeled "Milo Rimbaldi" suggests to me that he predicted a time that cloning would be possible although why he thought someone would want to, I don't know but remember both Syd and Sloane appear in his journal.

Poor Sloane, Syd doesn't know Lindsey put a contract out on her. If I were Sloane, I wouldn't reveal this to her either since she wouldn't believe it anyway although Jack might...I honestly don't know where the device is. Maybe Lindsey really didn't give it up...

He-man was very good last night. Of course, if I had to complain about something, it was way too easy to stop the Snakemen and turn Teela, Man-at-Arms and Meckaneck back to normal after being changed into Snake People. I loved how Orko threatened Rattlor into talking by enlarging a mongoose. That was cool. Roboto busting out of his bonds by igniting his rocket hands was cool too. (Yes, I'm a grad student. Shut up.)

Justice League could have been better but was good. Hawkgirl and GL finally acknowledged their feelings for each other and we got to see Shiera without her mask. She basically looks like a cross between Diana and Poison Ivy. The main plot with the Joker taking over the TV airwaves in Las Vegas and having the League have to race against the clock finding hidden bombs while fighting the Royal Flush Gang reminded me too much of the Batman episode "Christmas with the Joker." They really screwed continuity with the Royal Flush Gang. The futuristic version of the group appeared on Batman Beyond and were described there as a group comprised of family members that replace themselves with husbands and wives and children over time. They didn't have super powers, just futuristic weapons. (I did the like Gang's powers here but Ace's secret power was obvious to figure out when they had found the last bomb and thee was still twenty minutes left in the show...) Though, it makes sense that they were recruited and named by the Joker even if they weren't related. Next week is the Christmas episode which should be interesting.

Thanksgiving Weekend

I'm touched I was missed by at least one person. An anonymous reader read one of my stories as well... Thank You Lady Vader for the former. I could have posted while I was home but I went home for a change of pace. I did nothing for days and loved it.

On Wednesday, I went home to CT and saw Enterprise which is unusual for me but the WB decided to start their repeats before everyone else. I thought the concept of the episode was good. Having the Xindi collecting all the different blood types would ensure the whole human race wouldn't be left out of dying when the weapon was set off. Archer was right in suggesting that the Xindi were hiding in the past. They had to pick a time where blood type was kept track of so we're talking twentieth century anyway so why not make it 2004? I liked how they had it in Detroit instead of somewhere in California as it has been lately. (I think the TOS episode "City on the Edge of Forever" was Chicago.) I also loved how T'Pol was around that guy. The interrogation scene was great. ("Do you want to be untied?" "No!") Now, what I didn't like. They didn't spent any time explaining how Archer and T'Pol got back and forth from time period to time period. Apparently, they used some kind of "Time DHD." I would have liked to see it. I would also like to know how Daniels knows the Xindi are in the past but not about anything going on with them in the 22nd century. The writers backed themselves into a corner they couldn't get out of.

Anyway, after that we watched the UCONN men get their ass kicked.

Thursday into Friday, we were at my aunt's in New Hampshire. Thanksgiving night after most of the family had left. The other aunt and uncle who were also staying the night and I watched Uncle Buck with John Candy. Being written and directed by John Hughes, it was such an 80's film. Another thing that didn't occur to me when I saw it the first time was how Macaulay Culkin got the Home Alone part. He played a similar role here and Hughes did those films as well. Does anybody watch that horrid sitcom Yes, Dear? and wondered who Jeanna Louise Kelly is? She was the rebellious teenage niece in this film.

Friday was dominated by the news that pitcher Curt Schilling signed with the Red Sox. That got me excited for the new season.

Saturday, I think we watched UCONN win. Also watched He-man and more. It was a good episode but I think the B-plot was better than the main plot. The A-plot concerned a man who shut down the power all over Eternia. Man-E-Faces was stuck between faces, Meckaneck's neck was stuck elongated, Trapjaw couldn't open his mouth and Triklops couldn't see. This was an attempted blackmail attempt for He-man and Skeletor to come and move boulders for this guy. (Yes, there was even a "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain." moment.) The better plot was King Randor and Battle Cat going to find Queen Marlena whose aircraft had lost power and crashed. Marlena was hiding out in a cave until a sandstorm passed and was holding her own against a couple of the Snake men. The best part was when Battle Cat had a memory of the particular cave she was in because she had taken Adam who was a boy at the time and his little kitten Cringer. (This is the first episode he was referred to as such I think.) Marlena asked Randor how they found her and he guessed Battle Cat had picked up her scent in the storm which she immediately dismissed. Battle Cat said nothing of course...

My parents and I then watched a video: The Whale Rider. It told the story of a Maori girl in New Zealand living in a patriarchal society. Also prevalent is the Maori legend that the leader their people came to New Zealand from Hawaii on the back of a whale. I don't recommend it to Deuce but the rest of you should see it.

After which, I watched Justice League. When it began with all these supervillains around a table, I was like "Why are they doing another team-up and with 90% Superman villains to boot?" I was pleasantly surprised that that wasn't the point of the episode at all. Having the League deal with the supposed death of Superman was excellent. Diana almost killing Toyman. Batman not attending the funeral because he didn't believe it to be true. As Diana put it, "he doesn't deal was loss well." I loved the funeral scene with Lex Luthor appearing and Lois getting mad although doesn't having the Kents, with cousin Kara and Lana, there blow Superman's secret identity? Admittedly, maybe Lois knows as she does in the comic books but I never saw that episode and what about the press outside? One may wonder why Batgirl, Nightwing and Robin were not there as well when Aquaman, Dr. Fate and the Green Lantern Corps were. ::Shrugs:: If I wrote the solution to the problem of how to get Superman back from the far future, I think I would have had Batman figure it out which would allow more people think he losing his mind.

Sunday after going to church and the Advent workshop where I made two Advent chains and a candy house, the afternoon was all about watching the Patroits get a huge lead, proceed to blow it and then hold on by the skin of their teeth to win their eighth in a row. We also watched the UCONN women play like crap and yet still pound the crap out of Holy Cross.

Alias was kinda weird last night. Yeah, I'm guessing Lauren is not part of it but what if she was? That would be an interesting twist. Obviously whatever is behind that door will require her to look up Will. The biggest mystery is why Lindsey wants Sydney dead. The interrogation scenes the week before made my father suggest Lindsey wants to get back at Jack for something but there has to be more to it than that. The fact he seems to have fallen for the Covenant cover story suggests that he's not in league with them but what if he really is? I have no other explanations. Those watch the show, I'm interested to hear your opinions on this.

And finally, before I went to bed last night, I watched The E! True Hollywood Story on Heather Mills McCartney. Did you know she had not one, but two eggtopic pregnancies before this latest one? Baby, I'm Amazed...It was narrated by Marina Sirtis whom we all know and love.

Well, that was my whole weekend when you add all the Bond films I watched. (Shockingly, Spike TV, the first network for men, is not available at an all-women undergrad school...) I hope you enjoyed reading it.
