So I share a birthday with Nikola Tesla! (which is amazing). Oddly I spent most of the day reblogging things about him (including the epic news that the CEO of Tesla Motors has donated a Million dollars to the guys salvaging Nikola's lab, turning it into an interactive museum).

Anyway I thought I should probably do a post about my birthday on my LJ :D

Firstly, I got a haul! Mostly importantly I got a new LiveScribe to replace the one that sadly died on me. I also received a beautiful dusty pink jacket, flowers and a teddy (below), books!!! notebook, tea thermos, bookmark and tea strainer.

My teddy is adorable, you can see me hugging him here - as i said to caz, he's so squishy! I spent all of friday asleep on the poor thing.

96

Also I thought it would be a good idea, for the record, to document what I actually look like at 27. Me, below, no makeup. That's it - that's what you get at 27 LOL. Proper skincare routine starts TOMORROW.
27 - come on, I don't remember how I got here...

Goodness... I think I spent 5 hours playing Skyrim today and i didn't even notice. This games is way too addictive. I think I'm going to be all adult and put myself on a curfew. Considering it's an open world game I could be there at it for bloody ever and not make a dent. SCARY.

Also, there is some kind of epic wind storm kicking about up here in the suburbs. Not sure where it came from but it doesn't appear to have any rain to go with it. Just wind. I'm afraid it might knock over my baby basil plant (which I feel too guilty to eat) over! Maybe I should go rescue it...

Have spent the rest of the day on work related, frantic phone calls. *sigh* weekend? what weekend? weekends are a myth!

I feel like a doctor - on call all the time. I should get one of those buzzy-pager things you see in 90's films. Anyone else remember those?

Jonathon didn't win any Jessie Awards this year :(  He really should have got it for Hamlet!

Still, look at that adorable face though - as if it couldn't pout its way to an award...

funny-pictures-lead-the-way

Have decided to come back to Livejournal well - technically I didn't leave I just used my RP account instead of my personal so what I really mean is ELLYMELLY is coming back to LJ. The new team they have in charge is repairing the place we all liked to call our home. We already have back most of the things that made people leave and by the looks of it, the new team is going to start giving us things that we request. Already it is infinitely better than the other shitty sites that I've been forced to lurk in.

Please please please I hope other people start coming back. LJ is a much better platform to share and catchup than the UGLY AS ALL HELL facebook. Tumblr's lovely but it's not a home. Twitter's fun but it's only a noticeboard.

If you left LJ because of the changes they made, try coming back. The more of us that return, the faster this place will return to its glory days as THE PLACE of fandom.

So, on this note, I will resume making icons and layouts.

I love this so much. These two are totally mental - makes me wish I were an actor even though I'd be flat broke!

It cheers me up endlessly when everything else in the world is so shit.

This song is truly an anthem to liberty and love. That moment when Europe said, 'We believe in freedom, be it personal or sovereign.'

I miss my journal - and fandom in general. I don't know what's going on but the world seems to be very quietly lately. Is it because we've run out of good shows or did our entire age bracket grow up and enter full time work :(

EPISODE 1 : CHILDREN OF THE GODS

Things I love:


  • giant lizard costumes - frak yes!

  • Old school credits - the poppy blue guy, you know what i mean.

  • Frosting on things that go through the gate - totally forgot about that!

  • Sam touching the event horizon of the stargate. It's not just an imaginary green screen projection, she makes it feel entirely real like, 'holy shit that is the event horizon of a wormhole'.

  • Daniel with enormous glasses!!!


Things I hate:

  • Jack's backstory - sooooo glad they dropped that fast. They inherited it from the film so I forgive them.

  • THAT speech by Sam, though perhaps I should move it into the 'lol' category.


Things I LOL at:

  • Apophis went backwards through an open wormhole.

  • omg australian mocking in the first ep!

  • Throwing a tissue box through the stargate.

  • The first thing Teal'c notices is a wrist watch.


Quotes:

  • "Let me be the cynic around here." - Jack

  • "You can actually see the fluctuations in the event horizon." - Sam, before Jack shoves her through the gate.

  • "It took us fifteen years to mcguyver a system..." - Sam

  • "The suns are comin' up." - Kawaloski

  • "Many have said that but you are the first that I believed could do it." - Teal'c

  • "I have nowhere to go." "For this, you can stay at my place." - Teal'c and Jack

  • "I am a Jaffa - bred to serve so they may live." - Teal'c


OMFG WOW:

  • Keyboard with stargate symbols. OMFG WANT. I'm a touch typist so I could actually use it.

  • Guys acting like jerks to a professional woman trying to work in a traditionally male field. It was like this in the 90's but shows like this helped to change that attitude.

  • The DHD!

  • The Gate System... and that fucking huge wall of addresses!
