Ok, a couple of you should have replies asking for clarification, but here are the answers to the rest of the prompts I've gotten thus far:

Those Five Things... )

I never realized that the opening title sequence to BSG uses an operatic version of the Gayatri Mantra. 

Beyond that, I was surfing around reading fanfic, and therefore was stumbling across events of the last half of season three (BSG, of course) and even though I haven't seen it yet, I do have knowledge of the major events of the end of season three.  (I know tiny bits and pieces of the first half of season four, but not a whole lot and am trying to (mostly) keep it that way.  The reason for this is primarily that I have three (at least) fics going that were started before season three really got going and which vere off from canon around that time.  So the characters voices are radically different than they are in the series now.  At least one reason that I stopped writing them for awhile was that the voices of the present show characters were different enough to give me trouble, and ultimately I decided that I should wait and finish the show (I didn't have cable anyway at this point) when I was done writing.

Apparently, I managed to delude myself as to what the rest of my reasoning was.  

Oh my god this show fucking *HURTS*. 

I was reading the summaries for Maelstrom and Razor (Razor in particular) and it was almost enough to make me nauseous.  Not the "gross out" kind of nauseous, but the "your gut is tightening up so much that it makes you feel like you're sick" kind of nauseous.  It's the feeling you get when you know horrible, tragic things are happening, about to happen, or are creeping around the edges as being likely to happen. 

Beyond that... due to a number of things I was poking back through the Farscape Shippers List Archives, and people: I MISS YOU GUYS!  I miss that list!  (Looks at [livejournal.com profile] tnbella , [livejournal.com profile] elflore , [livejournal.com profile] chickwithmonkey , [livejournal.com profile] comedownstairs , [livejournal.com profile] zeplum , [livejournal.com profile] icepixie , [livejournal.com profile] tarzanic , [livejournal.com profile] ladysorka , [livejournal.com profile] aquariusfire , [livejournal.com profile] nickless , [livejournal.com profile] saimhe , [livejournal.com profile] spleeny , and [livejournal.com profile] serendipityxxi )  And the missing has very little to do with Farscape (like, not at all) and everything to do with all the rest of the discussions we had.  And the quotes, because ohmygods.

a plea...

I miss Farscape. I miss my show something awful. I *still* haven't seen Peacekeeper Wars, despite having owned a DVD copy for over a year. The main reason? I don't have half of season 3 or any of season 4 on DVD. I've seen all of 3, of course, and the first half of 4, as well as "Bad Timing", but it was 3-4 years ago. Right now, I'm too broke to afford even the starburst editions (not that season 4 is out yet, but I digress.) So.


Does anyone out there have copies I could borrow - either VHS or DVD, I don't particularly care which? Since I don't own them, and they are available on DVD I don't want to download them off of a bittorrent site (it's my own little qualm) but I don't mind just borrowing and then returning them to someone else?

Hep?

First, and please keep in mind that I do this with a great deal of trepidation,

The first 10 people to comment on this post get to request a drabble on a subject/character of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal.

Fandoms within which I have muses (or have ever *had* muses) are as follows (and I'm not trying to be persnickety guys - the stuff I'm excepting here I simply haven't seen):
X-Files (a tiny little slice of it, anyway - and particularly Wintersong's AU world of "Lost", "Found" and "Alphas")
Buffy (seasons 1-3)
Roswell
Farscape (anything season 1-3)
LotR MOVIEVERSE, and no LoTRips
Harry Potter
Doctor Who Circa 9-10. ::cuddles her new lovely::
Lost (Season 1 only)
Witchblade (Season 1)
Charmed (Seasons1-4)
X-Men
Anita Blake
Eve Dallas


In other news:

my car is dead. There was a wreck, and she didn't survive. :(

my hours at work are very sparse - I can't decide if it's a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that I have to spend less time there. Bad in that it's less pay.

Dr. Who is my new crack. Blame [livejournal.com profile] black_magdalene.

The DaVinci Quest on Google is my other new crack. Love it. Want to win a replica cryptex, damn it.

My birthday is in 3 days. My family has all chipped in to get me an ipod. I have to decide what to name said ipod. (I'm currently leaning towards Rose. I'm a fangirl. Shut up.)

If anyone were to be curious as to what to get me for said birthday, ipod-type accessories (fm receiver, fm transmitter, etc. etc. etc.) (except for those knitted sock-let things, cause I can make those) would be welcome - as would La Femme Nikita DVDs. Or whatever really. I'm not really interested in getting music off of Itunes though, because their proprietary format sucks.

(I'm amused that I can spell "proprietary" correctly, but not "receive" or "different".)

Imps or bottles from Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs wouldn't go amiss either. ;)

We're still trying to move. We have until the end of June... I'm not sure we're going to get it done the way we want to. I don't *WANT* to live with boxes stacked to the ceiling anymore... but I'm also too damn depressed and tired to do anything other than.

:(

Well, off to go see if I can find some Doctor Who vids...

OT3 anyone? ;)

PS - LJ paid time wouldn't be turned down... ::blatant hint... hint... hint...::

Yes, yes I have beaten IE into submission. I have *GOT* to get Firefox. Gah.

Not thrilled with the bloody emmys. Well, ok, I lie - I'm ecstatic that Naveen and Terry got noms, and that there were many lots of sci-fi show noms in general. The three issues I have with it are a. HOW THE BLOODY FRELL DOES PKW ONLY GET ONE NOM? Come *on* people - even if it didn't have the "best" prosthetics come Emmy night, how does it not even get NOMINATED? (Only one category among many that they got robbed on.) b. 93 nominations? I know that HBO does good stuff, even if I don't have the channel and don't get to watch the shows - but dude! That's almost as many as two network stations put together! One category has nothing *BUT* HBO movies in it. ::boggles:: c. The lack of fictional TV show categories. Reality TV has at least two different category *types* for best show. But they don't divide Drama into more than one category. Which is ridiculous, IMO. Thank god Desperate Housewives is considered a comedy.

So, in other news (ie, life as I know it - mundanely): serious financial issues. Several checks decided to dress-up as red rubber balls. ::headdesk:: Luckily, Brian worked some this week w/ Jim on a woman's house (doing dry-wall) and got paid. (I don't get paid 'til *next* friday.) Lemme put it this way - I went on Amazon yesterday and tried to cancel my pre-order HBP. 'Cause I couldn't afford it. (It was too late though.)

I adore my future father-in-law. Brian called him to see if we could have/borrow $20 so that I could get gas to go to work (the tank is currently in the lite-bright "empty" status). He said ok, and came over when he was done with work. Instead of pulling out a 20, he brought us $100. No, really. He said that part of it was the gas money, part of it was because he hadn't actually gotten us a hand-fasting/betrothal present yet (not that we'd actually asked anyone for anything, cause we hadn't), and that the rest was because he remembered what it was like starting out and being really, really, really broke.

Suffice it to say, I now have enough to deposit into the bank that it'll take care of the overdrafts, the fuck-you-fees *from* the overdrafts, and enough in the black so that when Amazon charges me for the book that it'll go through w/o a problem (I think). Brian's got one more check that needs to be cashed, which should take care of gas money middle of next week when I need it, and groceries. (We have food in the house - it's just the little odds and ends like oh, say, milk to *make* the mac and cheese we have several boxes of that was gonna be tricky. This way we don't have to worry about that.)
