Have a great one, my friend. My quickly approaching friend (Fruckee!).

I was going to jot down a few thoughts on sebaceanbabe's birthday post, but it got...longer than I was anticipating. It's a bit rambly and all over the place, I apologize for that, since I have to flee to pick up my pops at the airport in a few, so he can come visit with my boys, who have a full schedule of baseball and soccer, which they wanted to show off. Of course, it's now supposed to snow 6-10 inches through Saturday, so...thanks for coming, pops!

Okay, so I’ve now watched through the 2-parter (19 &20?) of Season One of Farscape and I have to admit that I do a lot of it semi-distracted, which is how I watch television on the computer. I’m contemplating doing Season Two on disc and forcing myself into the basement and the big t.v. with no distractions.

That said, I am liking it a lot, despite the Muppets.

Thoughts on most of the season, and therefore spoilers (for a decade old show) under the Cut...beware of the use of many 'I liked'sCollapse )

Have a great one dorabelle!!!! I hope you're pampering yourself. New teef, new teef!

I just wish I was closer and we could totally drink coffee, or beer!, and laugh and point and make fun of young, defenseless children (even as I send hostile looks towards your friends). Or, you know, compare notes on Rock of Love.

Good times, good times...

I don't know if anyone's still watching...I'm kinda (hey, I keep keeping the faith that it'll get better, but I totally doubt it, plus its numbers suck, so it's done after this season or before anyway), but...

Spoilers for T:SCC under the cutCollapse )

Off to two birthday parties and two basketball games. Good times, good times!

Oh, and YAYS!

Elsewhere, Jonathan Sadowski, Kevin Simpson, Noureen Dewulf, and Ricky Mabe been cast in FOX comedy pilot Two Dollar Beer.

So, back when I was a miserable bitch, living in NEBF, GA, there was a short-lived bar and restaurant in Lake Oconee, called Zac's Place. This guy, Zac Brown and his dad opened it up, right on the lake and it was kind of awesome, cause Zac was a fantastic acoustic guitar player/singer, who would play most weekends. He also had done some minor tour circuits and met some folk, whom he became friends with and who would swing by and sing as well. Zac's mother was also, for a short period of time, my husband's secretary.

One of the guys who showed up to play (and the only one I could point out in a crowd) was Shawn Mullins, he of the one-hit wonder, "Rock-A-Bye" and Shawn would show up to hang out with Zac and play at Zac's Place (for free! and when Rock-A-Bye had just come out!) and it would be totally awesome. Seriously, it was a really cool place in a hick town, with nothing to do at all (embed not from Zac's Place):



Anyways, the restaurant closed right around the time we were leaving (THANK GOD, with the leaving), because Zac wanted to put more time into getting his music career off the ground and just couldn't spend a lot of time/effort on it. I just got an e-mail from the husband that the Zac Brown Band has a CD, is touring and will be here in March. We're going to go see him. I guess he may or may not remember us, but his showstopper from back in the day "Chicken Fried" has apparently been getting a lot of radio play nationally. It's a bit bizarre hearing it in front of a bunch of folk on YouTube, when we used to watch him play in a really small honkey-tonk local bar, where everybody knew your name, you know?



Good for him, Greensboro/Lake Oconee boy!

You know, all with the escaping Greensboro/Lake Oconee.

*shudders*

*waves to all*

I know that this is such old news, but it will never be not funny to me. Apologies.

Not Work SafeCollapse )

So, I went to see Friday the 13th at "lunch" today. I figured that I'd only want to watch the first 10-15 minutes or so, so I picked a time that had another movie that I could duck into, when I inevitably felt like bailing, which I did, 10 minutes in because (well, any of you knowing why I went probably know why I bailed (not much of a spoiler at all really), and I didn't even make it till Padalecki was on screen):

Cut for Spoilers for The ReaderCollapse )

Off to buy some beer for the husband's suprise birthday party, which I totally bailed on hosting. I'm such a good wife. Blah, I knew someone would offer and after having two full weeks of houseguests and being the only working in my department on this lovely Friday, I just couldn't deal with getting the house ready. Plus? I, no lie, just put down close to $300 on a 5-year-old's baseball season (not t-ball, baseball, and they have, like 20 games and he's totally going to support me as a major leaguer some day, right? I'm so not delusional) and another $200-and-change on both boys' spring soccer.

Yay, money! Or lack thereof!

And a Happy Birthday, again, to Brandy. BTW, I'm pretty sure that there were plenty of "anonymice" involved, dear!

Okay, so this may have been posted elsewhere, I'm not on any McKenzie sites, but man...can you imagine?

Question: First-time writer. Long-time reader. Looking for scoop on Psych. Totally love that show. For real. -- Stef
Ausiello: This isn't scoop so much as it is a random tidbit from Super Bowl weekend: At NBC Universal's tailgate party, James Roday, Dule Hill, and Chris Meloni took on Burn Notice's Jeffrey Donovan, The O.C.'s Ben Mackenzie, and an unidentified executive's son in an impromptu game of pick-up touch football. Team Roday-Hill-Meloni prevailed by a score of 21-7. And because I know you'll ask, both teams kept their shirts on the entire game. "At one point shirts and skins were suggested," whispers my gridiron mole, "but it was too chilly."

There's a whole lotta hot for one field, you know? Man, that musta been fun to watch! Iz jeluss!
