* Yesterday's workday shall not be mentioned, or hopefully, repeated. The cyclical nature of this industry means that mistakes tend to coalesce all at once, biting you repeatedly on the ass until you just want to offer up your throat and say, "End it."

I compensated with a nap, a bath, a glass of wine, and "Gilmore Girls." Which was charming, and made me miss it terribly, and still sort of hate the middle of this season. Then I went to rehearsal, and there was no screaming, but I find that blank cow look that some of my dancers get because they cannot remember the step we just frelling did to be more than a little frustrating. Still. There was no yelling.

* I have never seen the "Prometheus Unbound" from SG-1 S8, and would sort of like to for the story I'm writing for my Sweet Charity winner. Anyone able to point me to an ahem of any sort? Particularly an avi or zipped ahem. Or, at the very least, a transcript?

Semi-rant about girls. And fandom. Stop me if you've heard this before. )

* And finally, on a random note, [ profile] minervacat mentioned a desire to write about the other DRD's that Crichton programmed to play music, and I offered the following:

"The Nutcracker Suite, because he misses Christmas, clearly. And some Rachmaninoff because you know that he's already blown stuff up and was dying for a soundtrack. And I bet he also taught them some Skynyrd, so you know somewhere running amok is the poor lonesome DRD playing Freebird and Sweet Home Alabama, while John sits on the floor, drunk on homemade moonshine, waving his lighter."

Except the more I think about it, I feel like I stole the Skyard thing (possibly from [ profile] rubberneck which would not be a surprise to me:)

So, other potential musical options? A little Don Ho? I can see a ukelele theme'd DRD complete with tiny bubbles coming out of one of its implements.

* I'm back on the fighting sleep as a disease track (meaning I go to sleep too late and wake up dazed and cranky). This is hardly new behavior. Still, I wish I had the will power to go to bed at normal hour since they still except me to come to work at the same time every morning.

* I have yet to either purchase Turbo Tax or do my taxes (obviously). My mother sort of bites her tongue with these little panicked eeps for me. The problem is that I know the worst thing that can happen is that I'll owe the IRS MORE money. If they owe me, I don't get anything extra for filling late and easing their burden.

* The gas pump today was leaking so in addition to not really getting gas, I also now smell vaguely like gasoline. It's fabulous, let me tell you.

* Krull is as bad as it deserves to be. Possibly worse than original Battlestar Galactica. I'm not entirely sure why this was a surprise.(Possibly because we saw this in the theater, my dad and I, and he was constantly ragging on my unholy love for BSG and this was so much worse!! So much. And yet I remember being sort of scared and shocked and effected by this. Of course, my dad also took me to see 2001 in the theater when I was about six, scarring me for life, so you know, his judgement? Not always so stellar). More of a surprise to M. who taped it for me and didn't remember doing so. (This is a movie that would benefit from a remake, I think. Or at least an acknowledgement of every single source it ripped stuff off of. Was this a book? A graphic novel or something first? C'mon Flist, you must know.)

* The fabulous [ profile] minervacat has posted a new story in her Valentine 'verse, pre-series, actually, about Sam at the end of S8. It is, as always, beautifully written, effortless and totally insightful and drew me into thinking about Sam in a way that the show really hasn't, and now I want to watch it again through this lens. Go read and tell her how marvelous it is!! Must Have Learned Them From A Million Stars.

And finally, as a shamless, pimptastic reminder, The Reunion Drabble Challenge is in swing. I'd say full swing, but so far we've got fabulous prompts and nary a response. I know y'all are working on Remix fics, and other things, so I'll forgive the slow start. But drop on by and leave 100 words on reunions, unexpected, delightful, bittersweet, surprising, ridiculous. You know you wanna!! It'll provide that extra push you need to finish your longer fic!! (Takes off pimp hat, and settles back down).
