The kids don't have school today (teachers' convention), the weather is lousy, and one of them is still on the mend from the flu, so we're watching the LOTR trilogy back-to-back-to-back.

I'd kinda forgotten how much these movies are the Epic Saga of How Much Sam Loves Frodo. (It felt weird to put "Frodo" instead of "Dean" there, btw.)

So. How are you? Any interesting plans for Halloween? Cute pics of yourselves, your offspring, your pets, or your (other) I need to see?
ella_menno: (scruffy sam)
Re: Supernatural and the big what is Sam doing that he won't admit he likes but Ruby knows he likes and he also won't tell Dean about question.

My theory: cut for those who avoid not only spoilers (of which there are none, since I myself am spoiler-phobic), but also speculation (of which there is lots. )

Okay, I had to get that out before tonight's episode - not that I think they'll touch this point - if it's even close to correct, which given my track record, it almost certainly isn't - until nearer the season's end.

NOTE: As mentioned, I'm spoiler-free, so please refrain from referencing spoilers in comments!

Hi. My name is Jenna, and I own the entire Twilight saga.

Also, I kind of <3 it.

If you need a primer on this series, or just want to read some really funny commentary on such, I cannot recommend [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda's Twilight journal entries highly enough. Everything she says about these books is ‘zactly what I would say about them, were I as funny and smart as she is.

DISCLAIMER: My shameful love for this series should in no way be taken as my endorsement of any of the following:
* weepy emo clingy teenage girls whose lives have no meanings outside of their boyfriends/soul mates, whether said boyfriends/soul mates are alive or undead;
* the setting up of the above type of girl as a role model;
* the egregious overuse of mostly unnecessary adjectives;
* werewolves in love with persons other than Sirius Black.

I do, however, endorse sparkliness in all types, shapes, and forms.


Innyhoo! I kind of RILLY LOVE MY SPARKLY VAMPIRE BOOK, and I haven’t even BEGUN to sing the praises of Edward’s sister Alice, who is OMG BEYOND COOL, and she would be even if she DIDN’T sparkle, which, fortunately, she does.

So that’s that, the story of my shame, and the TRUE REASON I have been so absent for the past few days. (All the days before that were due to the usual (i.e. non-sparkly) reasons.)

(Just to be clear: I have no official info on JP's marital status. Though I do think the matching rings are mighty interesting....)

I cannot tell you how much my new default icon amuses me. Perhaps by tomorrow I'll be able to look at it w/o giggling.

Then again, perhaps not.

OMG somebody comment before I die of boredom, all alone, by myself, abandoned out here in the hinterlands....

1. Okay, so I understand why, when I Google "Jensen Ackles," I get "Jared Padalecki" listed as a related search. But why do I also get "Wentworth Miller"?

2. I have officially eaten pizza for three of my last four meals. Clearly, I fail at being an adult.

3. Is it wrong that my sole purpose for going shopping today is to procure frames in which to ensconce all my photos (INCLUDING THE SIGNED ONE) of Jensen and Jared from last weekend?

4. Maybe later on I'll post a list of all those Sandman-related ideas I was talking about yesterday. It's probably a good idea to have them all in one place.

5. Holy crap, I need to think about hauling that turkey (a/k/a "Birdzilla") out of the freezer pretty soon.

6. I'm feeling the itch to write something. Hmm. *thinky face* Perhaps post-bedtime.

Totally Necessary Introduction and Summary

Chapter One


So Dean and Sam and the Impala are right outside these crumbly old gates, and Dean is all "whatever, this sucks, lets find some girlz!!" and Sammy is all "NO DEAN MAYBE THEIR IS INTRESTING STUFF HERE" and the Impala is all "vrrrroooom!" and then they hear a NOISE and they look over past the crubbly old gates and they see ANOTHER CAR driving right TOWARDS THEM and it is TURKOYSE.

And so Dean is thinking 'OMG I could totally fix that up' and the Impala HEARS HIM becuz they share a PSYCHIC LINK, and she (pfft, the car is so totally a girl, like NE1 doesn't know that) gets all MAD and JELLUS, and Sammy is all "OH NOES DEAN WHAT HAVE YOU DONE NOW" and Dean is all "bwuh?" and the car STOMPS OFF on her TIRES TYRES and that other strange TURKOYZE car goes WITH HER and the last thing the Brothers see is BOTH CARS and they are headed towards a LARGE BODY.



And now for something completely different:

If anyone would like to leave me an opening line in the comments, I will use it to create a drabble. *smiles*

Tell me about the best thing you've read.
ella_menno: (dean and bobby by keb91)

Yeah, so, a little trouble with the connectivity earlier this week. Hmph.

Item the first: boring financial stuff. )

Item the second: not only did I miss Smallville’s season premiere on Thursday night – I didn’t even care about it. Really, the only thing I actually missed was talking to my girls during the commercials. [Which I would’ve done, had I
a) not been at a fundraiser;
2) remembered it was Thursday;
and/or D) received your voicemail prior to,oh, about an hour ago. Pfft.]

It’s kind of amazing to me when I remember a few years ago, how SV was, like, the Huge Fannish Love of My Life*, and now I’m not only not watching it, I’m not even trolling around online so that I can catch up with what happened. (Though I do gather that rumors of Spoilery! ) were greatly exaggerated, to which I have to say: wow. Could I be less surprised? *thinks* Nope; not really.)

Item the third: Mom and I joined an exercise program. Yay, us. Not that y'all really care, but I do have to mention this one teeny fact – on the information sheet we had to fill out before joining, the very last question was along the lines of “give two reasons you want to get into better shape.”

I don’t remember what I ACTUALLY wrote down, but I do know that my immediate impulse was to write down Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. Now you tell me – is that so wrong?

Erm. Maybe?

Item the fourth: I tend to jot down stuff in a variety of notebooks that end up scattered all over everywhere. Just found one that must’ve been stuck somewhere for a couple of months, ‘cause it has a bunch of ideas and such that were obviously sparked by AHBL ½, at the end of last season.

Here are a few:

- is a soul a “good” or a “service”? a piece of property? a state of being?

-in general, who is the legal owner of a soul? Who owns Dean’s soul right now?

- does the demon have the right and/or authority to purchase and/or barter for souls? For that matter, does Dean?

- what are the exact terms of the deal Dean made?

-what can invalidate a verbal contract of the type Dean made with the demon?

-what law, if any, is the contract subject to? Is there any higher authority that can be consulted if any part of the deal is in question?

Which reminds me, I would really love to read a story wherein the demon comes to collect and can’t (I know, you’re thinking there are a hundred of those already!) – except the reason the demon can’t take possession of Dean's soul is because it legally belongs to the Impala. *smiles*

Back to your weekends, people!
ella_menno: (ouch harry)
I bring you this meme, nicked from [livejournal.com profile] musesfool.

The mysterious dark gothy one whom you used to sit up with talking until 3 a.m. at weird coffeehouses and with whom you were quite smitten until you realized he really was fucking crazy: Star Wars:TPM

The one you spent a whole weekend in bed with and who drank up all your liquor, and whom you'd still really like to fuck again although you're relieved he doesn't actually live in town: Oz

The steady: Supernatural

The alluring stranger whom you've flirted with at parties but have never gotten really serious with: SG-1

The one you hang out with and have vague fantasies about maybe having a thing with but ultimately you're just good buddies 'cause the friendship is there but the chemistry ain't: Buffy/Angel

The one your friends keep introducing you to and who seems like a hell of a cool guy except it's never really gone anywhere: Due South

So. Everyone Wang Chung tonight?

*You know, I really have to cultivate some self-discipline if I'm going to keep to my goal of posting every day.

*It's eleven a.m., and I'm still in my jammies. Woot...?

*Nothing much going on today. Must call Fed Ex, again; they have two packages that were supposed to be here on June 18th and have not yet arrived. My patience, she grows thin.

*Ideally, the third LotR movie will be Netflixed to our own very mailbox today. The kids are getting antsy to see how the story ends. I have this odd feeling that they aren't going to be too thrilled with Frodo sailing off to Valhalla (or whatever, details, pfft) at the end.

*We went to the park earlier this week. Oldest wanted to play "Lord of the Rings" with his brother - he went on and on about how "I will be Gandalf, and Mom can be the Despair Lady, and (sister) can be Gollum (hee!), and you can be Frodo, and-"

And his brother cut him off, saying "I can't be Frodo."

Oldest was chagrined. "Why not?"

Middle looked at him as though he was addled. "Because there's no Sam. Frodo can't be Frodo without a Sam."

The best part? Oldest didn't even argue - just shrugged and agreed with him.

*sigh* The fanbabies, they are so wise....

If anyone wants to ask me questions, or play "Marry, Shag, Cliff" (or whatever that game is called), or pass along questions for me to ask the kids, or, you know, anything - that'd be great.

As seen a whole lotta places:

Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal pseudo-canon.

ella_menno: (cookies!Dean by sinister morgue)
Here is the scoop: I have DISCIPLINED myself to NOT CLICK on ANY of the spoilers that are out there seemingly EVERYWHERE, because I'm enjoying watching my show and being unspoiled for it.

But. BUT. Even though it's Thursday, and there's a new episode tonight, and it's now a mere matter of HOURS until I get to WATCH IT, I am becoming weak.

WEAK. For, lo, there is abundant squee (pre-squee?) raging over Teh Internets, and people are saying things like OMG TONIGHT TONIGHT WIBBLE WIBBLE SO EXCITED - which I'm not cutting as a spoiler, because I think we should ALL feel like that for EVERY SINGLE NEW EPISODE of our show - but it's making me think something HUGE is going to happen and, as I am spoiler-free, I am completely clueless about what that might BE, and it is GETTING TO ME, YO, as should be apparent by all of the rampant capitalization around here.

So what I'm saying is that AT LEAST one of you needs to come HERE, right NOW, so you can knock me down and SIT ON ME so I can't accidentally-on-purpose go spoiling myself after being SO GOOD for SO VERY LONG.

Seriously. I'll provide snacks and drinks, even. Just. LET NOT MY UNSPOILEDNESS BECOME TAINTED.

*totally unnecessary dramatic flourish*

Oooh, HEY! Maybe I can work it out of my system by getting OTHER spoilers. YES. That will do. Go ahead and spoil me for something I don't watch (which would be 'pretty much everything that's not SPN or SV.)

Tell me the about the big showdown on "Heroes" (do they HAVE big showdowns on that show? All I know is that Hayden Panini-teri or whatever her name is plays a cheerleader, and there's an Asian guy who wears glasses. Also, judging by the commercials, things catch on fire a lot.)

Or, or, or, you could spoil me for "Lost"! (That's the one with people on an island, except it's not a reality show, right?)

Or! You could give me spoilers for LAST YEAR'S episodes! Or spoilers for cancelled shows! Or reveal the endings of books! Heck, tell me what happened to the Titanic!

Spoil me for something (except SPN and SV, of course)! Give it your worst!!!
