I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day!

(It was not particularly lovely here, as the beau is half-dead from a cold and is therefore confined to his place; I am coming down with said cold myself; the boy began his day by forgetting to take his gym clothes to school and ended it by forgetting to bring his math homework home from school; and the dog puked up her breakfast. To counteract all this negativity, I made brownies. All the problems solved.)

I <3 you guys!

I got food poisoning on Sunday, from a fresh new carton of Greek yogurt. I feel certain that was the culprit because I let Starbuck lick the dish after I was done, and she threw up too. I'm hoping to get back to work tomorrow, but man. Man.

io9 has the pilot of Ron Moore's 17th Precinct, which was supposed to be on this year, but NBC pulled out on. Presumably to make room for the newest iteration of Fear Factor, or some such.

Too bad. Such potential. Fandom could have slashed the fuck out of this thing.

In a not unrelated note, one of my New Year's resolutions is to get my financial shit together. One of these years, this resolution might actually take.

Not a lot of presents this year, but what we have is all wrapped up. The stockings are stuffed, the tree is decorated, the boy is spending tonight with his dad and stepmom and will be home tomorrow. The beau's playing X-Box and the dog's all curled up on the couch. It's been a long, strange year, but now that we're nearing the end of it, I think we're going to be okay. I have no data to back this up, but I think we're all going to be okay. Could be hope, could be instinct, could just be the thought that life is a pendulum, and once things have swung all the way to the end on one side, they have to come back the other way.

I think we're all going to be okay.

Happy holidays, everyone!

Does anyone remember Beavis and Butthead?

After watching Rick Perry's flub at last night's debate, and his weird speechifying a week or so back, I am becoming increasingly convinced that he was once the inspiration for Beavis from Beavis and Butthead. The way he was squee-bouncing over a bottle of maple syrup? The way he had to be coached like the kid in your sophomore high school English class who sat in the back sniffing Sharpies? That guy's two swigs of Coke and a Snickers bar away from pulling his shirt over his head, jumping into the audience and demanding TP for his bunghole.

How in the actual hell is this guy being taken seriously?

Conversations with a boy about today's release of Battlefield 3...

Two weeks ago:
Boy: Wouldn't it be funny if I got strep throat or something on the day Battlefield comes out?

Me: ...the only way you're staying home from school that day is if you're puking up blood.

Boy: I know! I was just saying...it'd be funny, right?

Two days ago
Boy: There's the level in Paris, and I think there's one in New York, and then when Modern Warfare 3 comes out, it's got one in Paris, one in London, and one somewhere in Germany...

Me: Someday we should visit all the cities you've had virtual battles in.

Boy: ...that'd be a long trip, Mom.

This morning:
Boy: Battlefield is really a multi-player game, Mom. It's a great game, but it just doesn't have the cinematic single-player experience you get with Modern Warfare.

Me: O.o;; *thinks* "...cinematic single-player experience"?

(Lando Calrissian/Neal Caffrey 4ever. I don't know how, I don't know why, but in some universe somewhere there was a con in which Neal's cut was one of the long-lost, fabulously bejeweled headdresses of Naboo's beloved former queen Amidala, worth a cool million Imperial credits, and Lando's cut was the Millennium Falcon.)

(Also, in this universe, Mozzie and Lobot are holed up in a cantina, drinking good booze and exchanging stories that begin with the phrase "That freakin' guy - you're not gonna believe this, but I swear to God it's true...")

The boy is at his dad's house for the next few hours; the beau is with his mom and brother. I have shamelessly indulged myself with store-bought tamales and now must wrap the rest of the gifts before the boys come back. But for right now, there is just enough calm for me to be able to sit down and wish you all a Merry Christmas.

So, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! <3 <3 <3

I haven't said it nearly enough this year, but I love you guys. ^_^ Be safe, healthy and happy.

Not much to report here. Mutant cold still lingering. To quote Greg Proops'"Smartest Man in the World" podcast, I have been "coughing like Doc Holliday for the last three weeks". It's also getting ridiculously cold at night here - I know my idea of ridiculously cold is shirtsleeve weather to many of you, but considering it was 85 degrees a couple of weeks ago...well. I feel justified in my bitching.

Haven't seen Harry Potter yet. >.>;; Hopefully this weekend.

All of you going to Y-Con this weekend: have a marvelous time and take lots of pictures! I wish I was there...maybe next year! But I will be with you in spirit tomorrow when I go to work in seekrit Olivia Dunham cosplay. Or maybe not so seekrit, since I just made myself a fake FBI badge. ^^;;

Also, PSA for anyone interested in San Diego Comic-Con 2011: tickets go on sale at the web site on Monday, Nov. 1. And will more than likely sell out shortly thereafter, so move quickly if you're thinking about going.

And that's all I got for now. The anti-social bug has hit me pretty hard these last few weeks, so I'm laying kind of low. I just realized it's been about six weeks since I updated and even that was just fanbabble. One of these years I'll start posting regularly again.

I'm sorry, but I really need to get this snark out of my system.

*ahem*

What's this I hear? An episode of South Park was offensive? How can this be? Next someone will try to tell me that the most recent Family Guy had a fart joke. Or that Robot Chicken made a Boba Fett reference. Or that J.J. Abrams tried to cover up plot holes with some crap about time travel. Or that Ron Moore occasionally throws religious themes into his work. Or that a Joss Whedon series on Fox had episodes aired out of order and/or never on the same night two weeks in a row.

Shocked. Truly, I am shocked.



tl/dr: I wouldn't need to vent in online journals if I could reach into the screen and bitchslap half the people who turn up on Anderson Cooper. Or, occasionally, Anderson Cooper himself.

2. New Star Wars TV series in the works with Robot Chicken and Daily Show writers in the mix. Here's hoping for a little Tag and Bink action.

3. I just found out that all of Fanboys is on YouTube. The whole movie. Sure, the quality is not the greatest, but it's still damn funny, and it's still one of the funniest movies about fandom ever made.

Holiday pictures!

Thank you all for the holiday cards! I was full of suck this year and didn't manage to get any out. :/ So if anyone wants a drabble, even though I'm stupidly slow at getting them done and probably about 1000 behind, then leave a pairing and prompt in the comments!

Fandoms I know and love: Gundam Wing, Fullmetal Alchemist (no Envy), Firefly, Star Wars (movies and Clone Wars - I'm way far behind on the novels), Ocean's Eleven

Fandoms I'm willing to take a stab at: Dollhouse, Battlestar Galactica (new), Fringe, Psych, Burn Notice, Warehouse 13

Now to put on some grubbies and go attack the gardening and clean the fish tank. Mom is coming over later to have the beau work on her car, and the boy is spending the day binging on his new X-Box. Man, does Santa spoil him. >.>;;

- At the store this morning, one of the tabloids at the register had a headline claiming Paul Newman and Steve McQueen had been lovers. I admit it - I squeed.

- I tagged along with a friend who was going car shopping yesterday and test-drove a Mini Clubman. I kind of loved it. The Honda of Doom needs to last me for at least six more months before I can even entertain the notion of affording a new car, but still.
