samantilles_at_lj: (SG Fandom-Jack Alpha Bits)
This weekend was horrible!!  Okay, not totally horrible, because Kevin came over and I certainly enjoyed my time with him.  He even enjoyed participating in the [livejournal.com profile] redial_the_gate  chat and watching a kickass episode of SG-1.  He wasn't that hot though on some of the episodes of season one though!  Anyways, the reason it was horrible is because I came down with a cold--one that hit me really really hard.  It started Thursday with a sore throat, and by Friday I was having nasal congestion problems.  By Saturday I was downright miserable, partially because another little friend decided to visit me, so I was all around uncomfortable.   Its now Tuesday, I still don't have much of a voice, I didn't get nearly anything I wanted to get done this weekend, and still carrying around a box of tissues like a security blanket. 

I was fortunate that I took off half a day on Friday as I worked an extra five hours unexpectedly on Wednesday, so it gave me the opportunity to be less miserable at work and more miserable at home--though I spent the entire time working, cleaning, and doing laundry.  ick.

I did get one thing done, my entry for Jack Alpha-Bits, and knowing that it was written while legally high on cold and allergy medication on top of the constant light-headedness I get when I blow my nose (which is all the time!!) I really need a beta to look over it once.  I just have no idea if it is even good, let alone whether I have their voices or can write in proper English right now...

Oh, and spending all day on the phone with airline peoples when you don't have a voice==bad.  Singing in the car on the way home after spending the day on the phone with airline peoples when you don't have a voice==even badder.  I'm squeaking and losing all voice on the stressed syllables of words.  I think the Grahams find it funny.

I spent most of the weekend choosing to do almost nothing. Why? Because I really wanted to be by the phone in case my best friend needed to talk. His mom's in the hospital and not doing very well at all. (I will not go further into it as it is his family's business, and it should then be only theirs to share further.) So, I just chilled. Oh, except for Saturday evening. I went out to dinner at Chevy's (mexican food) with my family for my sister's birthday, and then she and her boyfriend came over afterwards for cake. I'm very happy my parents decided after 25 years to finally stop singing "Happy Birthday" which sounds pathetic with only three people singing it. I kept forgetting (even until about an hour before we needed to go) that we were going out for my sister's birthday, and while I cannot totally account for this apparent early onset of Alzheimer's at the ripe old age of 27, I have to assume I've partially forgotten because I did not go shopping for her. At all. She wanted a dishwasher for her birthday, and so my mother and she went out and got one. I think I still owe my mother for my portion of it. After all, Kat specifically said in an email that she wants nothing else other than a new dishwasher for her house she bought back in March.
Technically her birthday is tomorrow; I may surprise myself and give into older-sister hovering and do something for her.
So, in my exploits to imitate a vegetable this weekend, I found myself amused last night walking out to the kitchen/family room while cooking today's lunch and doing laundry. I made three trips into the kitchen/family room (all one room, separated only by a rug) and noticed my mother watching a cheezy made-for-TV movie, Aftershock: Earthquake in NYC. The first time I walked out, I caught a look at Sgt. Johnson (from SG-3) and Martouf/Lantesh, and immediately recognized them. Of course, my mother vaguely recognized Martouf, but only guessed him after I mentioned that he kissed Sam and had a "double personality"... (My mother is my Stargate partner--we made it through all ten seasons together in a recent marathon, so it should be all fresh in her mind... more on that later though).
I kid you not, the second time I walked in, there was the head Trust guy right there on the screen, as the mayor's aid. Again I asked my mother if she recognized him, but she did not. Then again, sometimes she doesn't recognize the big actors in movies, let alone one show. I certainly didn't expect for her to recognize Johnson or Trust Guy, but she should have gotten Martouf much faster, given how much she liked him in the series. I was beginning to wonder if I just had Stargate on my mind (which is all thats been up there for five months now, so its a reasonable assumption, isn't it?) when the third time I walked out there, Maybourne and Narim were standing on a ledge of a building in this kind of existential look. It was then and there I walked out for the last time, motioning to my mother that I would not be returning out that evening as I really didn't want to recognize more people! I mean, come on? Maybourne and Narim together in what looked like a "best friends" scene? it was just too funny. Not to mention that Martouf seemed to acting more like a Go'auld than his normal Tok'ra self. Johnson and trust guy didn't seem to have lines. I must assume that the movie was filmed in Vancouver, since otherwise how would five canadian actors ended up on a NYC themed movie?
Anyways... that little bit blew my mind last night in SG goodness. Otherwise the weekend and the updates I got kinda sucked. *sadsigh*
Anyways... I am superexcited for the release of the Hammond Alphabet Soup [livejournal.com profile] sg_fignewton is holding for tonight. Nothing like new reading material!.

I'll post later, but I wanted this up... I'm determined to keep up with this!

If i didn't know any better, I could have sworn that Kevin was watching Fantastic Four with my parents rather than "The Wire" while waiting for me to come home from work! I began him on his journey through the 'gate tonight by watching the first movie, and from the very beginning, he was totally mocking half of what was going on! For instance, when O'Neill and Jackson make it through the gate the first time, they all turn on flares, and his comment was (I kid you not)... if they had gay guys in the military they wouldn't need flares, we would just "flame on!" like Johnny Storm (and then of course he went off on what Johnny storm was actually wearing when he flamed on, including that pink midriff top and spandex bathing suit bikini bottoms *groan!*
Tonight was the first night my parents noticed Kevin's snarky side, graced with the comment "you spend too much time with Sam"... he's always been snarky, he's just comfortable enough in our house to show it even with my parents *happehsigh*
It was by far an enjoyable evening, though Kevin's colorful interpretation made me see SG in a whole new light! I will be forever more tainted *no!no!mustremainasinnocentasfirstseasonDaniel!!*
