No Quiz

Alias was very good as usual. Jack's effort to expose Lauren may have been made harder but you and I both know he will not give up. I was shocked when Lauren went to kill her father and it wasn't her who actually did the killing. (I'll refrain from saying who did in case someone hasn't seen it.) This actually explains perhaps how Lauren got involved with the Covenant in the first place.

During that fabulous scene, a little news preview box came up in the corner of the screen to tell you Shatner has indeed joined the cast of the as-yet-unnamed Practice spin-off. I'm so excited. I almost fell off the furniture I was sitting on twice from laughing so hard during Sunday's episode. "I do not like being talked about when I'm in the corridor and last I checked I was in the corridor." This new show has potential to be my favorite since James Spader also cracks me up as Alan Shore. I see it as a more coherent Ally McBeal.

Comment on Average Joe: What was the point of the challenge to put together a basketball hoop? I couldn't give two craps, with or without toast, if a woman I might want to date could do this.

Night of Colin Firth

First, a quiz:

The sixth book written, you're nevertheless the first chronologically. You not only describe the creation of Narnia and tell where the White Witch, the lamppost and the wardrobe came from, you get to bounce between worlds with the help of Uncle Andrew's weird magic rings.

Find out which Chronicles of Narnia book you are.

Last night, I saw a surprisingly good movie. What A Girl Wants with Amanda Bynes and Colin Firth. I was afraid it would be too much of a teen movie but it really wasn't that at all. It was a father-daughter bonding movie which is much better. There was several scenes with Amanda trying on clothes and there were a few outfits she looked very good in. Once again, I'm going to hell... My new favorite quote is now: "Oh, poop on toast!"

After, I went down to the TV room where Shakespeare in Love was just beginning. Colin Firth appears as a real ass.

Too bad, SNL wasn't the one he hosted. We might have made a complete night out of it...

Let's See if This Image Actually Works.

What Type of Villain are You?


Hmm. I was just thinking about Soran the other day. How odd. I took this quiz because I was cast as the villain in another quiz so I thought it was fitting. Another comment about it: Lexx was a horrible show.

Take the What High School
Stereotype Are You?

Fairly accurate although my family is more functional than most.

Not that anybody will read it but I started a piece of original fiction today. It's posted at Fiction Press. Readers of this blog will immediately recognize at least part of the basis of the story but I don't care. Read it!

Hmm I Don't Remember This Coupling

Your ideal Middle-Earth parents are Faramir and
Eowyn! Do you have any idea ho difficult it is
to find pictures of your mom and dad together?
That's because Faramir usually holds the camera.
Anywho, they are the prince and princess of
Ithilien, which will naturally give you some
sort of impressive title. Your uncle omer is
the king of Rohan, so when you were little you
actually got that pony you asked for. And a
beautiful Mustang on your sixteenth birthday,
too! Considering who your parents are, you'll
probably be tall and attractive.

Your Middle-Earth mama is Lady Eowyn of Rohan.
she's one of the coolest women in the history of
ever! She faced down the Witch-King of Angmar
and his fell beast for her uncle, so you know
she will do just about anything to protect you.
She will probably teach you to ride a horse and
use a sword and spear properly, not to mention
letting you visit your uncle Eomer and aunt
Lothiriel all the time.

Your Middle-Earth dad is Faramir of Gondor. He has
a lot of official duties, but when he is
finished for the day he'll will spend quality
time with his family. Faramir is very
intelligent, so he can help you with your
homework. If you are rambunctious it will
probably remind him of his brother Boromir, so
he lets you get away with an awful lot. Word
of advice: don not mention your grandfather
Denethor. Your dad doesn't want to talk about
him. Also, insanity runs in your family.
(Maybe you will get lucky)

I hoped you liked my quiz. Please rate it, okay?

This morning at work I spent all morning tabulating the results of a survey we actually still have in progress but many have already come in so my supervisor wanted to start now. I'm in the middle of the non-open-ended (Is close-ended a word?) opinion questions answered by students taking classes during the day. (Other categories include Evening Students, Day and Evening Faculty, Staff, and Other, which is mainly what appears to be students who are too immature to fill out a survey properly.) So far there really is no prevalent opinion, positive or negative, on any area of library service we provide although I have a good feeling on the reference service portion which, since February or so, has been me...

Created with quill18's MemeGen 3.0!

Both quotes are from one the best episodes ever. Oddly, I think it was the first episode... By the way, their commentary on steroid use in last night's episode was rather poiniant in their own special way...

Finally saw the Enterprise episode "Chosen Realm" last night. Frankly, I didn't miss much. The plot of religious fanatics taking over the ship has been done at least twice. ("Way to Eden," TOS and Star Trek V) This time, though they were dressed like Native Americans for some reason, they were more like Christian Right religious than hippies. They didn't want transport to the "12th Sphere." They wanted to use the ship to destroy people who don't believe as they do: that the Expanse was created in 9 days not 10. (I'd comment on how completely inane that is but I'll refrain.) Strangely, since this seemed like commentary on the current administration, complete with "Pro-Life" commentary, Trip "GW Bush" Tucker had maybe one line the whole episode... Having Archer play on the doubts of the bad guy's right hand man in order to get the other man's help was already done in Star Trek: Insurrection. The best part was when Archer IMed Phlox or at least it would have been if it hadn't already been done, more effectively I might add, in Star Trek: Nemesis. I know it's rare nowadays to have a Star Trek episode that's completely original but they have redressed plots better than this before...

So I had busy day at work today. There was one lazy ass woman I had "the privilege" to to help all freaking morning. First, I helped her find a book in the catalog which is fine then I helped her find the book on the shelf which is also fine. Later she needed to make photo copies so was just going to show her how but then she just wanted me to do it! During this, paper fell behind the copier and she wanted me to get that. If I wasn't the nice person that I am I would seriously tell this chick to fuck off.

Tonight, there was a informational meeting about commencement. No tickets so if you're not doing anything on the morning of Sunday, May 16th, feel free to come up, down, or sideways to see me get a fake diploma which will then be exchanged for a real one later.

Alias was very good. You knew as soon as the group started talking about the mole Lauren would walk in. I mean it's so corny it's cool. Even though, she did it for her own ends, alerting Vaughn of her father's plans was a rather shrewd move on Lauren's part. They're more likely to trust her now, or so she thinks... Jack's on to her now. While it may seem strange to many that it would be he that actually believes Sloane, he has known him the longest. Frankly, the mole being Sloane seems way too obvious a conclusion for them to make. Personally, I think Jack could have shot Sark and still gotten the collar off before the toxin fully entered Sydney's system since it took him only two seconds to get it off anyway but he's not about to risk his daughter's life needlessly especially since he didn't even want her there in the first place.

A word or ten on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony: I didn't really care for the editing. Everybody had one song interspliced with their "acceptance speech" except Prince who had two songs unfucked with and he got to show off some more during the George Harrison tribute jam. (I swear Alicia Keys was going to give him a blow job or something...) I kinda understand only having one song from the Dells since who are they but Traffic should have had two. Bruce Springsteen's speech was very funny but he should have cut it in half. I love Keith Richards. Was he just drunk or was he stoned and why was he inducting ZZ Top anyway? I love the fact Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne came on stage to the Wilbury Twist though am grateful they weren't actually performing the dance...

Seeing Shatner on The Practice was very entertaining. I hope they use him more.

Ok, I was interested in two basketball games last night and they didn't show either of them much. CBS stopped showing the UConn-DePaul game presumably because a blowout was in the making but the fact that DePaul's head coach was an assistant under Calhoun at UConn just last season I think is an interesting story. UConn did win though so that's good.

ESPN2 didn't show the UMaine/Texas Tech woman's game in it's entirety for reasons I don't understand. Until like the last minute and a half Maine was right in it. If Maine's 3 seniors could have started scoring, they would have beat the 4th seed. As it was they only lost 60-50. ESPN instead decided to show a game that was a complete blowout from the get go.

Many times with quizzes you can click to see all possible answers. The quizzes that have this are usually ones, such as The Political Spectrum quiz we all took awhile back, where the possible answers are fairly obvious.

Here, we have a quiz where only two answers come to mind yet who would be so lazy to do a quiz with only two possible answers? Can you see all possible answers? No.

As Promised.

Stargate SG-1 could not have been much better last night. Dr. Weir, at least the Jessica Steen interpretation, fits into the role of SGC head very well. In some ways it might have been interesting to have a civilian at the helm. We'll never really know. Too bad.

That was a nice send off for the General Hammond character actually giving him something to do. That battle sequence was awesome. My question is though where did the Pentagon get the money to make all those X-302s?

Kinsey exited sooner than I thought. He was the VP for what, a few months? Spiro Agnew lasted longer. That was one of the best scenes of perhaps the season though. "Shut up!"

O'Neill's transformation was much more pronounced than the first time he "took a download." Was it because he had previously done so and this was a second dose or was it just this particular incident? There were rumors that he would Ascend. He didn't. He appears he was just was encased in carbonite or something...

It could be argued that SciFi lied to us. We were told that the Lost City would be found on Earth. They also told us, simultaneously, it would be found on a planet in the Pegasus galaxy. (Which is true.) Which is it? Shouldn't they have found some kind of clue at least in this episode? We have to wait until freakin' July for this minor detail?

"You don't want lose your loved ones so you try not to lose them." Good plan, I say.

Ok, I was going to start today only blogging about things that potentially make me happy like television or the Red Sox but I must discuss what happened on my way to work. I get on the train at Fenway as usual. The driver comes on the PA to say that Kenmore, the very next stop, is the last stop and everyone must get off. The train was having what, I swear, he said was "modem problems." (Like I care if he can't surf for porn while he drives...) Another train finally comes and we all cram in like sardines. I'm trapped on the stairs, again, for i think two stops. Here I had a choice of reading some guy's newspaper or fondling some fairly cute Asian woman. I choose the former for some reason. (Damn conscience!)

It doesn't look good that Trot Nixon will play soon, if at all, this season. Back (bulging disc?) problems are nasty and don't heal well at all. Thankfully, Gabe Kapler and David McCarty, to name two, seem to be having good springs. If they can keep it up, we may do alright.

Again, a quiz that makes little sense.

The internet is freakin' slow today for some reason. It's a nice day, school's in session, so, WTF?

OK, I have my stereo set on random yet this is the fourth Dido song it's played in a row... Still, "Here With Me" is a good tune so I'm not complaining too much.

Actually, that song is a good segway into another comment I want to make. The last few days, I've been fairly rude to Heather. She's said hi or goodbye and I've given her only a weak smile if not ignoring her completely. Why can't I put the past behind me? Especially since this is the first time, and maybe the only time, a woman has said she'd like to remain friends and actually means it.

Oh, this is slightly related and slightly amusing: Remember during the Cookie Bake-Off, when I became really jealous when another guy was showing her his I-Pod mini? Well, I met his girlfriend last night...

Pirate Monkey's Harry Potter Personality Quiz
Harry Potter Personality Quiz
by Pirate Monkeys Inc.

I don't know how scientific this test is but I have never been a J. I'm always a P. I should also note I'm a weak N. Once I had a U for "undecided" in that category. I guess I should be happy with this though. The INTP is Lord Voldemort...

Charmed was really good this week. Though Chris was more interesting with the mystery of his identity surrounding him, it's the correct emotional response not to get close to someone you know will die. On the other hand, the mission to stop Wyatt from turning evil won't take fourteen years to complete therefore he should be happy with this opportunity. I could be wrong, but no one knows that Phoebe and Paige will also die during the event so history isn't totally changed. To me, the Phoebe plot was like a magical episode of TJ Hooker. (I could have just had Shatner on the brain as I will explain shortly.) I agree with Lady Vader, Paige is getting boring. The relationship with Richard and the lame way it ended I think has something to do with it.

Another new Alias? We're getting spoiled! While I will admit that The Office is not one of my favorite shows, Ricky Gervais is hilarious! The plot was highly convincing. At first, I thought it was Lauren who shot Weiss but it was Sydney! Victor Garber is such a fine actor as well. He can torture prisoners, take in red haired orphans and make passes at Reese Witherspoon!

Now the rant. I was under the impression that William Shatner was going to be on The Practice this week. Was he? No! This simply means he will be just in part two of the story which is not how I read the sentence in the article. Oh well. Did I mention how hilarious James Spader is in this show?

Now for good, but strange, news: according to my supervisor schools are closed on St. Patrick's Day. This was not the case in Maine and I'm sure I would have heard if it was in Connecticut. As far as I know, Simmons still has class. Anyway, this means I have day off tomorrow!

Forgot a Few Things

theOtaku.com: Who's Your Anime Girlfriend?

I have no idea who this is but that's really not surprising....

I wanted to talk about what I did last night. I highly recommend the movie A Mighty Wind. I laughed so hard. Actually, the music was pretty good. I may look into the soundtrack. Oddly, PBS was showing a documentary on Peter, Paul and Mary at the same time...

Meanwhile, a dormmate was doing laundry and, somewhere between her room on the fifth floor and the laundry room in the basement, she falls on the stairs and breaks her leg. It sounds serious. I'm told it'll require surgery. Coincidently, it'll be at the same hospital I dealt with. She's now in a commuter room in an undergrad dorm or at least will be. I'm told she's in good spirits.

Everyday is a Winding Road

Ain't that the truth? There are literally days where I either don't even want to get out of bed or days I realize I just shouldn't have.

Right this second, I'm happy but just an hour ago I wasn't. In the shower I pondered the concept of meaningless sex. I mean if I'm not destined to find that special someone until I'm fifty or something that's not going to give me a lot of time for spreading the family name or genes.

This is where meaningless sex comes in. Ideologically speaking, I'm against this concept. Truthfully, I have only considered pre-marital sex (or at least sex with someone I definitely would never marry ever) at my most horniest and even then it sometimes was with a bag over her head...

Then another concept that is more excepted by 1950's society came to my mind. Meaningless dating. You laugh but this concept has always been foreign to me.

The closest I've ever come to it is when I asked Smonkess to the Senior Ball and that was truly meaningless: her boyfriend at the time had just gone home for the summer and she was in no mood to even joke about "fooling around." I think we danced once. Yes, Tracy and I did go out to dinner recently but that was certainly not a date. It was two roommates, if you will, eating together like we have done in the school cafeteria a handful of times before.

For some reason, I have to be emotionally invested before I even consider going on a date with someone. It's like I have to know where this is all going before I even bother.

Generally speaking, is physical attraction, for instance, all that needed?

When You're Gone

No, that's not "If You're Gone" by Matchbox 20, which I also like but the Bryan Adams' song featuring "Sporty Spice" Mel C.

Stargate SG-1 was oh so good last night. Kinsey is an ass and I really don't think he'll remain the Vice President much longer. (Actually, Ronnie Cox himself said in a recent interview that he wouldn't be.) Dr. Weir, if I didn't know that she wouldn't hold the position much longer, I think will do fine has head of the SGC. She can handle Kinsey just fine and that seems good enough. (I much preferred Jessica Steen's hairdo in Earth 2 to the "Sharon Gless" look she sported here.) Here's an odd bit o' trivia: this is the second time Jessica Steen's character had a connection to an "asshole character actor." First, Terry O'Quinn in Earth 2 and now Ronnie Cox.

We will miss "Hammond of Texas" though. I doubt he'll be permanently posted to the Prometheus since Don S. Davis is leaving the show and I'm sure we'd like to use the ship again but that'll be cool to see.

As much as no one wanted to think about what a second download of "Ancient Knowledge" would do to O'Neill, he was the best candidate to do it here. You need Daniel and Sam to translate whatever he's saying and Teal'c's a Jaffa so who knows if it would even work with him. This might also be why O'Neill is pretty much taken off field duty by being promoted. Hmm.

I was doing so well this past week. I even had a conversation with her about a trip she's taking this summer and was not thinking about "us." Then last night, it just hit me like a sledgehammer. Thankfully she went home this weekend or I'd be liable to do something incredibly stupid.

It's not really the fact I had a relapse that bothers me. It's that I can't figure out what triggered it. I haven't even opened the bottle of chardonnay yet...

Hello, Nurses!

Take the Spirit Quiz and visit Castle Diqueria.

Last night my parents came up to celebrate my dad's birthday which is actually on Monday. We went to the Hard Rock Cafe. We actually found it this time. (We had gone once before.) Even though I had to work this morning, I had to big glasses of guineas draft. That stuff is pretty good. Mother and I tried to surprise my father with the obligatory "birthday spectacle" that oh so many restaurants do but the idiots who work there forgot about it or something. I had to talk to them not once but twice. He ended up with a free brownie sundae instead of a cake but we all enjoyed it. When we got back to my room, I gave him my present: Mystic River, (the book not the movie) and Hootie and the Blowfish's greatest hits collection. (Yes, he does indeed like them.)

Teaching bibliographic instruction to nursing students without the computer projector thingy went quite well I thought.

Topic 1: I found a grade breakdown for that quiz. The majority of the class apparently got between 90-100. One classmate did worse than me and another did almost as bad so I don't feel too stupid but the teacher will not be "brought down" anytime soon...

Topic 2: Today at work, I worked a lot on fooling around with Pagemaker to see if we can revamp our newsletter. It looks more professional but there are more constraints on amount you can say than the method they use now. Basically, it's a quality vs. quantity argument. I'm sure you'll be told how it turns out. I also will note that I never knew anything computer-related could bore me so much...

Move over Dave Navarro...

Hmm Cool. I'm evil and I apparently can electrocute myself. I don't know what "Twink" ranking means but what can you do? What can you do, Marge?

After work, I ate at the Fresh City place at the Landmark Center (had a Buffalo Bleu wrap) and then went over to the grocery store to do some shopping. I forgot juice and vegetables.

I found out my grade this afternoon for that quiz I took the day my heart was stomped on. Not surprisingly, it was not good at all. The fact it was so bad leads me to believe either I'm the only one who did poorly, even though everyone had a bad feeling about it, so she didn't scale it or she changed her mind. If it's the former I can live with that. There are two more tests. I can pull this out. (Wouldn't that suck if I was kicked out of the program this close to graduation?) If it's the other option, she must be brought down.

Well, there goes me not posting on my classes...

What's wrong with the Nacho Cheese Doritos?

Back To Campus

Not missed apparently while I was away. I don't know how I feel about this.

Saw two movies this weekend. My father and I went to see the movie Twisted with Ashley Judd. I found it fairly good but predictable. Every so often , they'd throw a twist in that think the killer was someone else, this happened maybe twice, but you always go back to the real killer.

I also saw bits of Wild Things 2 which is a prequel to that delicious Neve Campbell/ Denise Richards sex thriller. It even included an analogous "threesome make out" scene. Oddly, the actress who played the Neve Campbell character was hotter than the Denise Richards character which is not the case with the "adult versions" although I would not say no if Neve came to my door. The best part of the movie was that there was no nude Kevin Bacon...

Went to the silent auction/wine drinking/dinner thing sponsored by my mother's church. I won two items I bid on and drank two glasses of wine. (Can't hold my liquor the way I used to I guess.) To help me get over Heather, my mother tried all night to fix me up with a single mother in her church. Does she want grandchildren so much she'll take them prepackaged? You betcha...

Stargate SG-1: As you all know, I hate clip shows especially where it's actors other than the main cast sitting around discussing episodes but, having said all that, I really enjoyed it. Agent Woolsey may not be such a bad guy after all which I like because you can't have Robert Picardo or any Trek actor as a bad guy. (Ok, Patrick Stewart has pulled it off but that's it.)

Enterprise: This was such a good show. I love how that are doing a cliff hanger, meaning not having the concluding part immediately, in the middle of the season. I've never really seen that done before so well done! I loved the way T'Pol privately showed emotion for Archer. I'd love to see them deal with the fact she seems to have feelings for both Archer and Trip.

Alias: About damn time they had a new episode. Doing the show from first Vaughn and Syd's point of view then from Lauren's was good in parts and boring in others. There were two scenes they redid that they didn't need to since you learn nothing new from them. Again, Marshall rocks. Question to readers who have a SO: if they were wearing a ski mask that showed only their eyes couldn't you still tell it was him or her?

Pretty Woman Don't Make Me Cry

I had hoped to hold off before posting to today to allow LadyVader a chance to read yesterday's post since she seems to read only the most recent post but I must blog now.

From what I saw of Smallville last night. It seemed like a really good episode. The only thing I don't understand is where that "call from the future" came from. My father decided to call me back then so it was hard to care what he was saying and watch the show at the same time. But I did understand Adam went nuts trying get his medicine.

Angel was very cool and had an interesting twist. No, I do not refer to the fact Spike decided to stick around. I refer to the fact Illyria asked Wesley to introduce her to this new world and that she agreed to his condition not to be evil. Basically, instead of bringing Fred back they made her hot and gave Amy Acker a chance to act. What will happen with Gunn I wonder? Will anyone trust him again? Oh and I loved the fact they gave Harmony more scenes. She's such a fun character.

I ate lunch with Heather and others earlier today and there were actually moments where I wasn't thinking about what went down this past weekend. When the radio started playing Liz Phair's "Why Can't I?" that was a different story but lunch was about over then so that's ok...

I was a higher paid smelly porn star with my real name...


Why haven't I blogged in two days? Well, Monday morning, "The Curse of the 'Babe' State" struck (I'm not referring to Babe Ruth. I'm actually referring to the fact all but two of the women I've been interested in have some connection to Massachusetts.) and Heather broke my heart. (And you thought I was referring to her as "Her" for some random reason...) Does anybody feel like doing anything when they feel like they were hit by a Mack truck and left for dead? No.

Stupidly, I decided to check my e-mail before I went to class and, low and behold, she had replied to my confessional missive which she referred to as "nice" and said she didn't want to lead me on and just wanted to be friends. This is better than nothing I suppose but I have enough friends that I never see or won't see after this semester. I really hoped for something more.

Checking the time stamp, I noticed it was sent just before she arrived at the Oscar party the night before. This, of course, means that she probably was indeed avoiding eye contact with me. Did I mention I had a test that afternoon? My concentration was shot to hell with such great tunes as J. Geils' "Love Stinks" and "How Do I Make You Love Me?" by the Corrs running through my head.

So that night, while watching the Average Joe get his heart trampled on again, I seriously wanted Brian (of Boston) to smack that bitch. She got hers in the end though. Heh Heh. Granted, I was in a "women suck" frame of mind...

Last night at dinner, I finally saw her since I received her answer. We were with others so we didn't speak about it. Get this. Fellow North Haller and friend Sarah asked those at the table how to find out if a a guy she liked was interested in her. I wanted to escape. Heather herself took that opportunity to get more food. I wish I thought of that...
