You know who would make the BEST best friends? DR. REID OLIVER and HAN SOLO, that's who.

The quippiness would reach epic levels.

Crazy shit like this is why nobody talks to me anymore, isn't it.

If you need a laugh, go here now. It's a literal video of "Total Eclipse of the Heart," and it made me giggle hysterically.

I am back from watching my sister graduate. As she said, she now has a piece of paper* which proves she is officially more edumacated than am I.

Apparently, I’m traveling to PA to watch the Stanley Cup on the 31st. Erm. That’s hockey, right?

So I missed some wank this weekend? I kind of want to know, but then again, maybe I’m better off staying uninformed.

You know, it’s not like it was tough to cross over SPN with Sandman before the finale, but now it seems all I can think about is different ways the universes could intersect. I would say that I want to write some of these, but that isn’t true: what I really want is to read them.

You know, I could be writing right now...I have a story plotted out, and I think I finally have a handle on how I'm gonna tell it.

And yet here I am, reorganizing my iTunes playlists and wandering through my memories section.

Clearly, I fail at being motivated.

God gave us fingers - Ma says, "Use your fork."
God gave us voices - Ma says, "Don't scream."
Ma says eat broccoli, cereal and carrots.
But God gave us tasteys for maple ice cream.

God gave us fingers - Ma says, "Use your hanky."
God gave us puddles - Ma says, "Don't splash."
Ma says, "Be quiet, your father is sleeping."
But God gave us garbage can covers to crash.

God gave us fingers - Ma says, "Put your gloves on."
God gave us raindrops - Ma says, "Don't get wet."
Ma says be careful, and don't get too near to
Those strange lovely dogs that God gave us to pet.

God gave us fingers - Ma says, "Go wash 'em."
But God gave us coal bins and nice dirty bodies.
And I ain't too smart, but there's one thing for certain -
Either Ma's wrong or else God is.

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.

*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.

1. The HP #7 nerves have officially set in. On each of the past two nights, I've had dreams about the upcoming book. I don't remember much about last night's - mostly, it was me trying to keep the Oldest Child away from a caffeinated beverage at the midnight release party - but the previous night's dream was a doozy.

I was standing alone in the middle of my local Barnes and Noble. It seemed to be open for business, yet nobody else was there. I had my brand, spanking new copy of Deathly Hallows (btw, do book titles get italicized or quotation-marked? I never can remember....) and started reading it, not even bothering to find myself a chair.

And it sucked. It sucked. Somehow, right off the bat I could tell that none of the plotlines got any resolution, plus, only the first half of the book was actually about Harry et al; the remainder was a long list from JKR of all the other books, plays, etcetera that had influenced her writing over the years.

Very unsatisfying, I must say. Happily, I think my actual experience with the book will be much better. *g*

2. After holding out for Lo These Many Years, I have finally seen the first two Lord of the Rings movies in their entirety. (The third one is making its way here even as we speak.)

The fanbabies and I are watching it together, which (much to my surprise) isn't irritating me at all. I told them going into it that they should feel free to ask any questions that they wanted to, and that I'd pause the movie to answer as best I could.

This was a boon to them, or so it would seem from their expressions; then again, I am the one who enacted the ABSOLUTELY NO TALKING DURING SMALLVILLE UNLESS YOU ARE ON FIRE AND EVEN THEN IT BETTER BE A BIG ONE rule, so perhaps it’s not so surprising.

Anyway. The first movie, which runs for three hours, took us nearly four to get through, what with all the questions. It was quite interesting to note what kinds of questions each of them asked. (For the record, the Oldest had the fewest questions, which were most often variations on ‘which character is that again?’ Middle’s questions were along the lines of “is he a bad guy or a good guy?” and “is that a computer special effect, or a filming trick?” Smallest, of course, just wanted to know “is this a scary part?”)

I think I’ll wait to give my opinion until I’ve seen the third film. I will say that I’m enjoying them far more than I expected to, which is a pleasant surprise. (I’ll also say that I’ve found yet another actor who does nothing for me in stills, but makes me slightly breathless whilst watching him in action: Viggo Mortenson. *swoon*)

3. In perusing my LJ profile today, I realized I have an odd number of communities friended, which bothers me. (I don’t know why. Yet another neuroses, I’m sure.) I’m not willing to dump any of them, so I need to add another comm: who wants to suggest one or two three?

*Come on: TENTACKLES. I know there's tentacle, ahem, fic out there - someone, somewhere, simply MUST have written RPS tentacle fic. Or, if I could just be honest here, RPS tentacle porn. Therefore, there must be at least one story extant that could rightfully be labeled "tentackles."

Had several consecutive minutes to myself today - a miracle, I know - and this is how I amused myself.

*shakes head* I am an odd little duck, y'all.


1. SPN/SG-1: Sam Winchester and Sam Carter hang out in a bar, bitching about their siblings/colleagues, and how much each of them hates being called "Samantha."

2. HP/Friends: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Luna, Neville, and Ginny go through a door in the Department of Mysteries and end up at Central Perk.

3. SPN/ER: Dean Winchester goes to his first "Womanizer's Anonymous" meeting; Doug Ross offers to be his sponsor.

4. Homicide/SVU: Pembleton teaches some sort of procedural class to the detectives of SVU. (Okay, so that's not all THAT cracky.)

5. SPN/HP: (afterlife fic) - John and Mary Winchester have coffee with James and Lily Potter.

6. SW (fic)/SPN RPS: Padme/Padackles (Yeah. I don't even have an idea for that one; it's just there for the pairing line.)

7. generic celebrity RPF: Hayden Panetierre/Hayden Christianson

8. Spongebob Squarepants/Wall Street: Mr. Krabs and Gordon Gekko. (NOT SLASH, people. Yeesh.)

9. SPN/SVU: Agent Henricksen enlists the help of Stabler and Benson to track down the Winchester boys.

10. SW/SGA: Jar Jar Binks ends up in wherever it is the SGA folk congregate. (What? I'm not even marginally into SGA! Cut me some slack!)

And, what may be my personal favorite:

11. HP/SPN: Sirius-as-Padfoot gets taken in as Bobby's junkyard dog. Dude. I know. Different continents. Did you miss the "cracked" part of the title?

I. Need to go find a hobby, I think....

I'm almost done tinkering with my LJ layout; I'd work faster, but I'm having the giggle fits whilst I'm working on it.

Does it matter to me that only two other people are going to understand the humor?


Nope. Not really.

EEEeee, hee hee hee hee....

ETA: Here's a hint, for anyone who's wondering....
