Well, I passed yesterday's driving test with flying colors and a cute DMV employee. Yay!
In celebration, moss6886
and I went thrift shopping, where we found books, CDs, pewter cups (which are only useful at Faire or similar, but there they're necessities), cute Beanie Babies (I don't collect, but I do have a serious weakness, plus one of them was a little lion that I gave to my dad), cool clothes (but the little leather skirt was too small ::pout::), and miscellaneous jewelry. Then we went to Pizza Hut for large Meat Lover's Pan (kind of a treat for us), and even after giving a few slices to the small cousins there was enough for snacking and breakfast (yum!).
When we got home, I was faced with questions: Do I have enough energy to post, and if so what icon do I use? The answers to these were "maybe" and either "Snoopy Dance" or "::facegrass::," which posed a problem. That problem being that neither of those icons were uploaded, and changing that state would involve getting rid of one or two of my other userpics. The only possible solution was paid time.
In an (unsuccessful) attempt to dissuade myself from spending more money, I decided that I didn't want to post and that I should instead rewatch Sid & Nancy. I'd first watched it on Thursday (Netflix, I kept it because there were a couple screencaps I wanted to get), and my initial reaction was basically "yeah, pretty good, nice cinematography, can see why it kick-started Gary's career," and that's it. But there are some bits that just won't leave me (in a good way). After the rewatch, I've come to realize that I think I might love that movie. I don't know if it's the acting or the visuals or the music or maybe the glorious trainwreck effect, but it just worked. Although I did end up ogling Gary Oldman at some points, which is just... weird. I mean, I love the guy to itty-bitty bits, but he's someone I don't find at all hot even if I enjoy looking at him (a few others like that are Adam Baldwin, Humphrey Bogart, and everyone of the family DeLuise).
I don't know what made me think of this, but... did any of you watch Andromeda? I didn't think so. Anyways, I did. It was total crack (profoundly stupid at points, which made the really cool and intelligent bits that showed up occasionally all the more entertaining), and the fifth (final) season was the most cracked of them all. Some good moments, but generally it sucked. Except for one thing: the fandom implications. Meaning that the fifth season was almost designed
for crossover fic (it even eliminated timeline issues!). I mean really, if Moya accidentally Starbursted into the Seefra system, I wouldn't have been surprised. Teleportation spell gone horribly wrong? Why not? A Stargate on 4? Sure. Hell, the Colonial Fleet might make an FTL jump in, but that might be a little harder to work.
On a Stargate-y note, I feel I should mention that there aren't any whistling ducks in Northern Minnesota. My theory is that the good General knows this, and was simply trying to drive Cameron insane. That is all.
See? See my new iconses? Aren't they pretty? They raise the dead!
