Hmm

Melancholic
Melancholic: You are melancholic. The element that
you are associated with is earth, and your
endocrine system is dominated by the thyroid.
People look to you for answers, and you have an
analytical way of looking at things. You are at
your best when you are feeling creative, and
you tend to withdraw when sad. If you are
feeling unwell, you should probably eat fewer
carbs and more protein. You probably sleep very
erratically, anywhere from 5-10 hours a night.
You probably tend to snack, and eat a lot of
vegetables and pasta. You are most attracted to
people with a sanguine temperament. Jungians
call you a Sensory Extrovert. You comprehend in
the mode of "I Know", and your mode
of being is Feeling.


What is your Humour?

I did it. I'm going to still try to talk with her in person but this afternoon I sent her an e-mail. I admit some things that are wrong with this such as how unromantic it is how well it didn't work in my favor in the past (Although they could have been coincidence.) You also don't need to remind me of what happened when I sent such a message to my first love. I have a fallback position this time. She goes to the same school I do not one eight hours away.

I'm relieved I finally got it off my chest but I still worry about her reaction. I'd like to be able to quote Sheryl Crow and say "I've gotten used to Crash and Burn" but I can't. Does anyone really?

A Jumble of Stuff

Because of my going out to dinner with another woman, or a woman other than Her at any rate, I didn't watch Enterprise last night so I can't tell you what I thought of it. (Not that anyone cares. Truthfully, I don't.)

Going out to eat was as fun as I thought it would be. Tracy and I haven't a chance to talk much of late. We tried messing with her boyfriend's alcohol-hazed brain by telling him she was going out with a another man but he guess it was me immediately. So? I can be dangerous! (Ah, who the hell am I kidding...) I had red wine. Why? I don't know. I prefer white. Leftovers, yay!

I thought about the consequences of going out with Tracy in my plan to tell Her my feelings because I'm like that. Do you tell a woman before, which is no longer an option, or after you go out to dinner with another woman? As I said, it's too late now but in future?

Watched Forrest Gump last night. That movie is so good. Tell me why I don't own it? I had forgotten that Haley Joel Osmett was in it.

While doing so, I was IMed by Smonkess who I went to St. Joe's with. (I previously referred to her here as Jackie O.) I hadn't talked with her in months. She has her culinary degree and works at a restaurant in Vermont. She also showed me picture of her boyfriend and has been accepted at Brown. She's not sure what she wants to do there though. (This is typical of her.)

Watched the last 20 minutes of Billy Elliot and Saturday Night Live with Her and others. Two things occurred. She cried which is so like my mother. (Actually, I've noticed this before and have even mentioned it to my mother.) The second thing is she apparently loves the band T-Rex which is my uncle's current obsession. (I like them too.) These two things have led me to believe she would fit in my family so well. My question is: why can't I just focus on the first step of finding out if there's chance of anything between us before I look at larger ramifications?

Langdon Auger!

~*Definitely crushing on you!*~
She is DEFINITELY crushing on you. She calls you as
much as possible, and you call her a lot too.
Sometimes she might not call you as much
because she worries that she might look a bit
too obsessive over you, so that's why you need
to call her. If she's going out with somebody,
that doesn't mean she doesn't like you. Because
she does! Flirt with her as much as you can...
Hug her, put your arm around her... you'll win
her over!! If you ask her out, you will
DEFINITELY get a yes! Trust me! Good luck with
her!!!


(FOR GUYS!!) IS SHE CRUSHING ON YOU AS MUCH AS YOU ARE CRUSHING ON HER?

I found that amusing. Accurate? It's a stupid quiz, hello!?! Also, she has never called me nor I her.

Oh, I actually went up to her room to talk with her this afternoon. Unfortunately, she wasn't there...

My alcovemate is interested in going out to Bertucci's this evening. I think this will be fun. I had invited her after "my crush" had said she was going away that weekend but before my accident. Recently, I felt bad about pushing her aside so I reminded her that I still had the certificate and tonight we're using it.

Saturday Morning Post

Stargate SG-1 finally had a good episode last night. It seems, with the exception of a few weeks ago, their best episodes are written by either Michael Shanks or Chris Judge who both happen to be castmembers. Of course the NID would try to access the Go'auld memory any way they could. Reasons for O'Neill not to be in episodes have just been getting stupider. He was "still recovering?" From what? Has the quality of the medical staff dropped that severely since Janet's death? The series has always lacked an epilogue but this week I think it was sorely missed. It was not clear to me which personality was in control at the end of the episode. Despite all my complaints though, this was a very good episode and sorely needed.

Scorpio Drinking style:
Don't ever tell Scorpios they've had enough, for
they'll smirk at you and quietly but
intentionally keep tippling till they're hog
whimpering drunk, out of 100-proof spite.
Scorpios like to drink, and screw you if you
have a problem with that. Most of them see the
sauce as something to savor in itself, and not
as a personality-altering tool -- though if
depressed, self-loathing Scorps seek total
obliteration. But generally, they're
fascinating drinking pals, brilliant
conversationalists and dizzying flirts. They
also remember everything -- especially what you
did when you were blitzed. Only drink with a
Scorpio who likes you.

I'd say that's fairly accurate. MMM...Alcohol...

I was reading some of my old posts this morning before work. A previous Fruit Quiz pegged me as an orange. (Guess who eats 3 oranges a day...)

I wouldn't say I'm a completely different person I was in September and October but I've since forgiven my ex for her lies. We actually had a very pleasant conversation the other day.

You'll also notice I've really not blogged in depth about any of the courses this semester and really don't plan to. They seem to be the least interesting part of my life right now.

I also complained frequently about being unemployed. Hee Hee! Today, Mark was at a conference and Rosa was out sick so it was just Marie, myself and the workstudy student. Oddly, the library was ridiculously quiet anyway. Fatima and I basically surfed the internet all morning. Oh, the student who I have been tutoring on her writing came in today. Thankfully, she didn't need much help today since we were so short staffed. Another student came, used a computer without signing in and then wanted to print. Fatima wouldn't give him the papers because he didn't follow procedure. He turned to me for help but I backed Fatima's decision. If I was alone at the desk, I probably would've let him have it but charged him like twenty or twenty-five cents a page instead of the usual fifteen. Apparently, this was the fourth time this moron has done this.

OK I Have a Screw Loose

Lady Vader once asked if she had one for being attracted to Jesus, or the actor who plays him at any rate. Really that pales in comparison to the stupid move I made tonight.

I decided I'd rather have "Me Time" that I never have on Thursday nights due to class. I really wanted to watch Survivor: All-Stars because I really enjoyed the first episode of this installment that they showed after the Super Bowl. I was not disappointed. Jeri "didn't want to be screwed by" Colby again. or at least that's what she told Richard. I'm shocked they voted Richard off so soon. Did one win make him even more the cocky bastard? Hmm.

Anyway, my stupid move? Deciding to stay home alone instead of going to the intramural basketball game that a few of my fellow North Hallers are a part of with several more members including again you gotta know who by now going as spectators.

I seriously doubt anything would've happened on that front and I had turned down someone else before I knew she was going. If she had asked me herself would I have said yes? Frankly, the world will never know and this'll finally be a question I won't stay up thinking about. What is the point?

I really don't recall if I ever took this quiz or not so...

I'm finding making these things so much fun. Sure, I have a ton of other things I should be doing but, if you were me, you'd want to find some way to escape too and it's not like I've become an alcoholic or drug addict so what the hell?

Smallville wasn't the greatest but they've done much worse. I think Clark and I are alike in some ways. If my father was in the hospital, I'd do anything I could to help even it meant putting aside things I had a better chance of really helping with. In fact, I think many others could also agree with the sentiment. I was disappointed that more wasn't done with the angle of Lionel re-animating dead people but I have a feeling this will continue indefinitely so it's ok, I guess. I liked the scenes between Clark and Lana. The tension is so thick you could cut it with a knife.

To think that this episode of Angel was written and planned before the announcement of cancellation is mindblowing. They're canceling this show because? Amy Acker is such a good actress but her approach is very subtle. The first other example of this I can think of is Holly Marie Combs. I love that the whole office was so into saving Fred. Wes and Gunn simply are in love with her, Angel doesn't want to lose another person and Spike, I suppose, wants to repay Fred for her efforts to corporealize him. Even Lorne was getting vicious. That scene with Eve was excellent. This show deserves to live.

Ok, so we lost the Cookie Thing. How you ask could we lose to undergrad women? No one told us one of the judges was allergic to nuts but apparently either the undergrads knew her better, which is entirely possible, or have allergies themselves. I have never heard of an adult with that allergy anyway...

Something else happened at the Cookie thing I'm, not proud of. I experienced intense jealousy when another guy from the dorm was showing Her his new I-pod Mini. There was nothing going on yet, I was so angry about it. I wanted to throw or crush the paper cup I was holding. I don't think anyone noticed; which in itself may give you insight into my world.

Since Lady Vader hasn't said anything about wanting to know what I thought of Charmed this past weekend, I'm not going say except, why don't people just leave Wyatt, who's become a Low Matinence Baby this season, alone?

Work was ok. I did more research into the nursing database issue I mentioned before. We have re-evaluated how we teach bibliographic instruction to Nursing students. Helped a co-worker with Access. A student came into the library wanting to do her assignment for a computer class. Two problems. The assignment was to install a non-existent printer. You can't, of course, install hardware on a library computer anyway. The second problem was the text was geared for XP and the computers in the library are running 2000. This is a major problem for people who are in a class to learn how to install a printer...

A subway car broke down in front of the one I was riding and we hung around the Copley stop for what seemed like forever. The bright side of this was that You Know Who was just returning from shoe shopping around the same time. Too bad we weren't alone or I might have been able to get that monkey off my back...

Which Disney Character Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla

It was the freakin' library option I know but what can you do? I want a big library in my dream house, ok?

I started a Smallville story this afternoon. I seem to have gotten a new muse even if it only inspires fan fiction. I think I prefer reading fan fic rather than original fic on the internet anyway so I might as well write it.

Not a Bad Evening

Enterprise was pretty good last night. It wasn't a sweeps episode really but what can you do? John Billingsley is a fabulous actor. (Why are the doctors of Star Trek almost always the best characters?) To that I must also add that wasn't it convenient that the one crewmember who's immune happens to be the doctor? Oh well... Was that scene with Phlox naked necessary? Why would his hallucinations tell him to sleep when we know Denobulans don't sleep aside from hibernating for like 48 hours every so often? If T'Pol was just a hallucination then what if there was a medical problem with the real one? Phlox apparently wasn't checking her. I'm not saying that's not realistic but I was just wondering. I loved that scene with Archer waking up and Porthos hoping up to see him. I could swear he was saying "That crazy man almost shot me!"

Guess what? I wrote like 1500 words last night! Hey! Considering I haven't written a word since the death of my muse in October I'm impressed and you should be too. I finished my "Loki's Revenge" story. Click the "Fan Fic Written By Me" link and check it out.

So I watched Saturday Night Live last night with friends, including Her, in the TV lounge in the basement. Christina Aguilera was actually pretty funny. (Or at least the writers were.) I absolutely love Horatio Sanz as Ozzie. Sanz isn't funny most of the time in my opinion, I reference the Walgreen sketch last night to give an example, but he was dead on there. And who knew Amy Poehler, who also isn't funny most of the time either but still hot, could do Sharon so well?

Ok, more comments about my love life. Just when I'm content to just let the matter drop, she appears everywhere. She appeared in my bathroom last night while I was brushing my teeth. Ok, she was in the TV lounge so that was the nearest bathroom but I didn't know that at the time. Are these signs from God or something or am I losing my mind?

Every name I tried I was I woman but, when I tried my full real first name, me and my love interest were the two actors I thought about starring in the movie version of the novella I wrote. I thought Lisa Kudrow would be perfect to play the star and Brad Pitt was an early thought for the love interest although I seriously doubt he can play good Ukrainian.

Stargate SG-1 was better than last week but still sucked. Dr. Janet Fraiser, played by the attractive Teryl Rothery, was killed off in like first five minutes and the whole episode pretty much dealt with the cast grieving but without clips (As much as I hate clip shows, it seems like it could have been used well here) and no Cassie. (Frankly, watching this episode, I'm shocked they remembered her at all.) Curiously, Sam asked Hammond how he was doing and he seemed really bummed more than someone who was just a superior would be. Was there something going on between Hammond and Fraiser that just was always edited out of final drafts? Hmm. In addition to the grieving, they continued the boring documentary angle from last week and added the obligatory investigation into the death of an officer. (Although, the NID agent who conducted this was Robert Picardo and wasn't shown enough.) A question I have is will Rothery continue to do the voice of the Asgard scientist, Heimdall? (Not that he, or she, has been seen in awhile...)

Good News: I saw the orthopedist today and I'm all better! Yay! No more brace for me. He says that "No one should touch my knees" as far as surgery goes because nothing can be done about them anyway. He also says I'll have arthritis when I'm in my fifties but I've known that for years.

Bad News: The mail I received from the RMV wasn't the police report I've been waiting forever for. They wanted more information. I understand, now that I know it's the state handling this not the local police, that they need the city the accident occurred in but I explained clearly to them on the phone I don't have the registry number of the car that hit me. If they can't do it with the information I gave them, they might just have to pay my medical bills themselves.

Bad News: The Spring Breaks of my school and my work do not coincide. This means that I'll have to settle for another long weekend but...

Good News: During that long weekend, I can go to the silent auction event put on by my mother's church and get totally drunk off my ass as I did last year...

Ok, so I just found out today that there'll be yet another CSI spin-off starting next fall. This one apparently will take place in New York. I think New Orleans was a better possibility but I hardly ever agree with these things. I guess there will be only two regulars as opposed to an ensemble cast like the other two. I'll interested to see how they pull that off.

I don't understand the rush. CSI: Miami will only be in it's third season and the original will be in it's fifth season. Frankly, this is the time for the first spin-off not the second. There running the franchise into the ground faster than Star Trek has done. They had only two series on at any one time and then cut back to one again.

Law & Order started off fine with their spin-offs waiting nine years before doing a spin-off then got greedy and added a third hour only 2 years later with more to come don't you worry. Oh and CBS is prepared for the 9th and 10th installments of Survivor. At least they waited for Friends to end before spinning that off...

My point? I really don't have one except is Hollywood that hard up for an original idea they have to just immediately go to the spin-off or the remake? (Don't get me wrong. I am looking forward to the new Battlestar Galactica)

What Romantic Comedy are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

Smallville was interesting. The psycho woman angle has been done perhaps one to many times but the episode had many things that intrigued me. I loved the scene where Jonathan walked in on Clark and Alicia. That doesn't happen enough on TV these days. I was intrigued by Alicia's powers. Nightcrawler can't teleport somewhere he's never been but she can. Cool. I also like that there was a special room that blocked her from teleporting. You knew she'd find out about the kryptonite and go after Lana but those are probably minor nitpicks. Everyone goes after Lana on this show. So Adam was sent by Lionel to spy and Lionel's using Clark's blood to bring people to life. That's totally awesome. I honestly didn't see that angle.

Angel totally rocked. Even as a puppet, he kicks Spike's ass. Great scene. This episode reminded me of Meet the Feebles bit much cooler. I'm glad Nina returned. It's been too long since there was a werewolf character.

Odd how art, sort of, imitates life. Fred practically threw herself at Wes and he didn't notice until she came right out and said it. Nina was the same way with Angel although it was the whole office not her that pointed it out to him. Now, these instances aren't really connected to my situation but I found it odd nonetheless.

I received advice from two people on what to do. Thank you both. One suggested that I tell her immediately while the other suggested I try again with inviting her on a non-date outing. Here's the latest: last night, I arrive at the cafeteria and see her and one of my other dormmates. She tells me that they were just leaving because she had to get to class. She knows that I know her class didn't start for another hour. If she was interested in me as something more than a friend, I would think she'd stick around longer...This means she isn't interested or the thought never occurred to her which, in my experience, means the same damn thing.

The Contest

Ok, now that I got your attention, let me tell you how my life has turned into an episode of Seinfeld and no, not that episode.

Or was it? I'm thinking of the one where his brain and penis play chess. Yes, this seems to be fitting to my life right now. I ate lunch with Her today. It would have been so easy, from certain points of view, to tell her how I felt about her but I couldn't.

Things always have turned awkward after such "confessions" in the past. I'm afraid what will happen if I do. Can I live with eight weeks of awkwardness? Frankly, it seems awkward now especially when we're alone.

Why am I considering this drastic step you might ask? The Bertucci's certificate idea backfired. First, she goes home for the weekend then I have my accident. I considered going this weekend but she has friends coming to visit on Friday and I'm not sure if they're staying. I waited seven years before telling my first love how I felt. I don't have seven years. I have like 7 weeks.

I'm fairly sure she doesn't feel the same way. (Those readers who know me well are probably saying, "Well, duh!!")

It's hard to say if the feelings I feel for her and when I'm with her have much to do with her or is also partly me growing up. I realize now that I was really narcissistic in my approach with past "interests." Not so with her. I actually care about her day and her problems. I look back and I really don't think I did care that much before about anyone else. I also am willing to change who I am (admittedly, to a point) to better fit her interests. WTF?

You cannot imagine how just sitting with her brightens my day. When the possibility was raised that I may have to drop out this semester to recover from my accident, one of my first thoughts was how I may never see her again.

I'll be interested to see by the comments on my tagboard, or probable lack thereof, if anyone actually reads this.

I forgot yesterday to explain the meaning behind the title of the post. Over the weekend, I bought No Doubt's The Singles 1992-2003 and, now obviously, "Hey Baby" was playing at the time.

I never relized just how much I like their songs. I don't know if I like them enough to by any real albums but I should investigate this further. Did you know Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics co-wrote "Underneath It All" with Gwen? It's a good an explanation as any why I like that song especially the line about "using all your coupons..."

Hey Baby!

I come back to school from the weekend and there's a freakin' bird flying around the living room. I have no idea how it got in or why I'm the only who noticed.

I saw Return of the King in an IMAX theater. It didn't fill the screen so I don't know if it was technically IMAX but movie rocked nonetheless. I love Gollum and Eowen! So the "Fat Hobbit" got some balls and the girl. Good for you, Sam!

Stargate SG-1 was incredibly boring. The writers weren't apparently thinking when they had SG-13 who no one gives two craps about with the interesting story. I would have liked to see more of that story and less of the boring documentary scenes. Whomever thought SG-1 avoiding being interviewed would be an interesting story should be fired.

Let's begin with what I disliked about Charmed. Why was Phoebe wearing the blonde wig? My mother asked me, as she's wont to do, if I liked her in it. I said, and still say, no! Why wasn't Richard in a genie costume? They should have at least put him in a fez and baggy pants...Now that he's powerless, he's going to bore me. I loved the scene where Chris wished Piper and Leo "would sleep together" and they literally did. It was predictable but funny nonetheless. Though, also predictable, the plot with Ginny was fairly good actually.

Finally, a new episode of Alias! So not only is Lauren part of the Covenant, she must be in deep to have access to "the man in front of the man." Again, was this planned or the producers caving to fan demand? Speaking of McKenas Cole, I just rewatched "The Box" where he first appeared and he was taken into CIA custody at the end of that episode. How did he escape?

What Nintendo Character are You? (pics)
brought to you by Quizilla

Smallville had three plots last night. Pete drag racing was the main plot and bored me to death. The investigation and confrontation of Lana was better but still didn't go far enough to make it interesting. The final plot of Jonathan recovering from a heart attack caused by his deal with Jor-El was the most interesting but they probably want to drag that out as long as possible so they didn't do enough with that last night in my opinion.

Angel, on the other hand, was very good. My two complaints on the show was that the WWII era sub they were on seemed a little too modern and I still don't understand why Angel just didn't kill him and get it over with since he killed him before he untied his friends anyway...With that all said, though, the rest of the episode was quite entertaining. Notice how Spike would bitch about taking orders from Angel but did anyway? The idea that some of Angel's soul transferred over during the vamping process is an interesting notion that may not have been explored enough here.

I slept to 6:53 this morning and that ain't good considering I needed to be at work at 8:30. I made it exactly on time instead of ten minutes early without a shower or a decent breakfast. I am also missing my wallet...

I spent most of the morning, after showing my supervisor how to use a touchpad mouse (Did I call it or what?), searching for articles on canceling print serials in small libraries or community colleges in favor of online databases such as Academic Search Premiere that contains 35,000 titles. All I found, using my access to Simmons databases, was the article he showed me as an example of what he wanted. The killer really was the small library bit. I agree with him though. In this time of tight budgets, why aren't there articles on this topic?

I made signs for our suggestion box today. The color printer wouldn't print though...

The big story in Boston is the fervor on both sides on the same sex marriage issue. Republicans should just give up. The issue can't come to a vote until 2006 at which time gay and lesbian couples will already be legally married. Opponents are like well then they just won't be married then. Unless I missed some decision, I still think the marriages would hold up since it happened when it was legal to do so.

The main argument against is that marriage is to bear and raise children. Even when pre-marital sex wasn't commonplace, that wasn't entirely the case. It's a symbol of unity when two people love each other no matter which sexual organs they have.

Besides, it's not like overpopulation in the US is going to stop if couples of the same sex get married. Did I miss the memo that said single homosexuals can reproduce?

I love the "civil union" compromise which, if I understand this correctly, would make it possible for same sex couples to be united for tax purposes but not together "in the eyes of God." Ok, there are Church and State issues with this right off the bat and, really, would God have a problem with this? The New Testament would say no. The Old Testament, yes, but there was a rabbi on the pro side at the rally the other day so there you go...

Sleepy Time Post

Well, I can travel on the T in my sleep so maybe I can blog in my sleep too...

I've already discussed Charmed with my only visible reader but for those "shadow readers" who care, here we go. That was the best episode I've seen in awhile. The story was excellent. The Magic School really wasn't the Harry Potter rip off it appeared it would be. I liked it and want to see more. Some Paige School of Rock action would have been great to see I think. Finally, a Phoebe plot that actually makes sense and didn't make me groan. The morphing from Young Chris to Old Chris was awesome. (I could get into the merits, or lack there of, behind Phoebe being the one to know Chris' secret but I won't.) The dialogue was entertaining. "Maybe if you spent less time contemplating your navel...when you still had one..." Oh, a note to Lady Vader: Victor is indeed alive and will be on the show in like three weeks, I think.

So, "my crush" fell down some stairs and broke her toe. She's walking on it and says it doesn't hurt any more but hasn't tried moving it. Get this. She wanted to tell me especially about it. Her reasoning was that I've been dealing with injuries of my own but I'll take what I can get...

I was bad today, I haven't done my exercises today due to being in class all day. Maybe I'll try to do them now. Once is better than not at all...

What Type of Storybook Character Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla

Enterprise last night was quite interesting. It seemed fairly obvious that the first part was a trick by the crew to get Degra to talk but I didn't see the second ruse coming and I had read spoilers that it was going to be! I wonder if any of the headway Archer made with him would stay with him. I refer specifically to the confession by Degra that he was upset that his weapon killed 7 million people. Was he telling the truth? For storyline purposes the rest of the season, this might be very important. I still think it'll come down to Archer having to choose between destroying the weapon and killing innocent Xindi. I could be very wrong, thinking in traditional Trek terms, but it seems to be where they're going.

A comment or two about next week's episode. Finally the tension between Malcolm and the MACOs! They've been saying all season it would happen and we haven't seen any of that yet.

Now, the Trip and T'Pol thing. They've been hinting at that since the Vulcan acupressure sessions began and furthered still by the events in "Similtude." But what about Archer? There seemed to be some sparks in "Twilight." I hope they haven't forgotten about this or I smell a fan fic coming on...

Which Buffy Guy Are You?

Brought to you by Faytrial

I could list several Buffy characters I'd rather be...

Friday TV Update.

This update I should be able to keep. Honestly the only one that could be in trouble is the one for Sunday. My Mondays are just mucho busy. (Of course, Sunday contains Charmed which my readership seems most interested in.) Again, it may be weeks until I know for sure.

Stargate SG-1 had been rather dull, relatively speaking, the last couple of weeks. Last night, it came back with an episode that will have ramifications perhaps through the rest of the season. For the third week in a row, Carter was central to the story. I'm not complaining. In fact, I wish Amanda Tapping's navel ring was Air Force issue...The camera work in the scene where you see her bleeding and the super-soldier tracking a trail of blood that turns out to be another person, not Carter, was awesome. I do have a complaint, though. Carter had a huge gash in her leg and could barely walk at times. Her adrenaline must have been flowing like mad when she easily leaped over a pile of rocks.

Now, I said this episode would have ramifications for awhile. This is due to the alliance between Jaffa, Tok'ra and the humans coming to an end. This actually makes sense. The Jaffa probably do feel that they traded one master for another even though it isn't the case. They've been trained all their lives to follow the orders of "false gods" and probably view the world as such. Doing things for themselves for awhile may do them some good. Bra'tac wasn't in this episode to give his two cents so we'll have to see what happens.

The Tok'ra are right in their worries that this alliance ultimately affects them adversely. The old Dorito motto in the Jay Leno years, "Crunch all you want, we'll make more." doesn't apply to them because they don't reproduce sexually as the other two groups (Well, they did but the mother is dead.) do. They must stop keeping secrets from their allies, however. The old ways may have worked for them, survival-wise, but as Jacob pointed out they've eliminated more Go'auld in the last 7 years because of the alliance then the previous 700 hundred years by themselves. I find it hard to believe the Jacob/Selmac is the only Tok'ra who notices this. Could this lead to a Tok'ra civil war of sorts? That could be cool.

In other news, I was just watching VH-1's Fresh New Music. I only saw two videos that were actually "new." Not only was the Jessica Simpson video not new, it really makes no sense. Ok, technically I'm referring to the song not the video but whatever. To me, if she was walking around "with only a tee-shirt on," I'd be extra helpful and kind too. That ain't love honey...I mean she took the stand that she wasn't going to have sex until she got married and then suddenly Nick proposes. It's not "rocket surgery" here...

Ok, I must shower and start my day...

The Last TV Update?

Like I said yesterday, I don't know how much longer I can do this as regularly as I am now but let's enjoy it as long as possible.

Smallville was interesting. Parts were predictable such as that kid who's name escapes me losing his premonition power. The actress who played Megan was good. First, she wants nothing to do with the strange new kid but then was obviously worried he was in trouble. It's been my experience that women are like this. Adam's secrets perhaps are coming to light next week. Hmmm.

Angel's 100th episode last night was very good. I was surprised that they seemingly ended the Lindsey/Eve storyline so quickly. I wonder what else they have up their sleeve. I loved it when Lindsey's tattoos were removed and the Senior Partners found him. That was good. I wasn't to impressed by Eve's "comings and goings" line though. Somehow, I feel that the secret revealed about Cordelia was hinted at by the fact she remembered Connor. Comas aren't necessarily permanent so I'd have wiped her memory too.

Three other names I used resulted in my "of course" or "definitely" marrying lesbians: Willow once and her Slayer girlfriend, Kennedy, twice. Yet another name I used I got Cordelia but well, if you watch tonight's episode of Angel, you'll know why that's not likely either...

Oh, by the way, there are male versions available for those who prefer it.

Someone Will Die

One shouldn't blog when they are so angry they're tempted to beat someone to death but here we go.

I started PT today. The evaluation itself went fine. I was given three exercises to do twice daily. (I'll have to do them in the living room since there isn't room here.) Consequently, and I'm afraid I really mean it this time, blogging may fall by the wayside. Certainly, regular reviews of TV will suffer.

That's not, surprisingly considering it's me, what has me so pissed off, though. Someone realized that, because I was hit by a fucking car, I shouldn't have to pay for this. So I am asked to get the "auto information" of the driver. (Why the hell was I not given this information in the freaking first place?)

It gets better. (Or worse depending on if you're me or not.) The police, of course, don't just give you this information. You must mail a request for a police report and a check for ten dollars allowing 8-10 weeks for delivery. Meanwhile, I can't schedule my PT appointments until they have this information because they ain't doing anything for free. (Well, this evaluation is at the moment.) I called the PT place to ask them if there was any tricks they knew to get this done quicker but they apparently are closed for the day. (In their defense, it was like ten of 5 when I called. I'd leave ten minutes early too.)

Another Upside to the Patriots Winning the Super Bowl

To accommodate the crowd going downtown to the Patriots' victory parade and Rally here in the city, the MBTA increased train service this afternoon so I arrived home from work ten minutes earlier!

To balance this, however, for the sake of my only regular reader, (Where the hell are you, Deuce?) there was a downside to the Pats' winning although it was extremely minor. Last night, they broke into my Simpsons rerun to have live coverage of the Pats getting off a freaking bus in Foxboro. Hmmm. This was almost as bad as that time Channel 3 in Hartford broke into my father and my past lunch time routine of The Young and the Restless to show our president get on his plane to leave Connecticut. Who gives a crap!!! Of course Al had to describe the moment in detail. ("There he goes up the steps...")

Lady Vader will be the only one to appreciate, even remotely, that I met him once at a Wolf Pack game. In my capacity as Event Staff, I was charged with babysitting a group of Cub Scouts from Wallingford. His grandson kept throwing things over the side of the balcony.

I Will Not Say I Told You So.

Ok, I will. Everybody from Pats fans to Vegas knew the Patriots would win. Now they're calling this a dynasty. Next season they still won't get any respect. I was watching CNN earlier in the week and some stupid anchor woman actually said there was no big name teams in the Super Bowl. How stupid can you get?

It was not Satan. The Pats were just the superior team. They didn't have freezing cold temps or 2 feet of snow to keep Carolina off balance and they still won. God bless Vinateri for making that FG. The Pats defense in the first half was amazing. Deion Branch may be my new buddy and Antwoine Smith finally picks up the running game that he hasn't done all freaking season.

There were some complaints. Vinateri should be able to make 31 yard FG in stellar conditions in his sleep yet he hooked the damn thing. (I'm not going to blame him for the blocked FG.) If he didn't make the game winning FG, I'd have stuck a cleated-foot up his ass.

Another complaint: Where the hell was the defense in the second half that was so dominant in the first? Thankfully, Carolina's fell apart too.

The best commercial was the donkey who wanted to be a clydesdale but the NFL one was second in in my mind. Overall, however, I wasn't impressed with the commercials this year. In most cases the CBS promos, especially the Everybody Loves Raymond promo with Marie complaining she "isn't a trophy wife," was more entertaining.

I'm upset that I have class Thursday nights because Survivors All-Stars last night was pretty entertaining. It took Richard like five minutes to get naked. I can't believe they almost voted off my Jenna!

Ok, so last night at dinner, I see her sitting by herself so I sit down and offer my condolences and help. This isn't the first time I've seen someone in such emotional pain but it could have been the first time I really cared. I still can't believe I brought up the fact I haven't used those Bertucci's certificates yet! What the hell is wrong with me! Tonight at dinner, she didn't make eye contact with me. I'd say any chance I had that this would ever go anywhere is done.

Yay Pats!!!

Musings

Friday, my horoscope, and no, I don't usually believe in that kind of thing but bear with me, said that there would be a major development in the romance department and that "my crush would return affections."

If that refers to the woman I've mentioned before, this wasn't likely to happen and didn't. Her grandmother is either near death or has already died and I don't think she's even on campus.

There's more to this story. The same day, I was IMed by a complete stranger who, after talking with her for awhile, seems to a have a few things in common with me. It was then I discovered she goes to another school here in Boston. That might have happened to me once or twice before but it's very rare. Oddly, she and "my crush" have the same name.

Now, I'm not saying anything will come of this. We may never even talk again but it was odd nonetheless. Just be warned that I may be back here wondering which, if any, to pursue...
