Okay, so this is the first time I ever shot a video (well, okay, hubby shot it) and uploaded it to youtube. It's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long, so feel free to not watch the whole thing. Just thought you might enjoy a little vid of me feeding my birdies.

That noise you hear is them crying for food. :-)

One canary baby and two cockatiel babies were born last night! Awwwwwww! Yes, I remember the debacle I just went through with my other bird babies. But birth always makes me smile.

Had a big scare today - my Zune froze. Yes, I nearly had a meltdown. Luckily I got online and found out how to reboot it fairly quickly. *wipes sweat away from brow*

Here's my Jim Beaver pic if anyone's interested ...

And last, but not least, please fill this out and let me know what you really think of my writing. I'm DYING to know! :-)

[personal profile] jya_bd_cp_ttgb is a genius!! She took on the challenge of my Dark Angel prompt at [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic .  Go!  Read!  Laugh yourself silly!  It's HERE

My bird club was rather amusing tonight, like it usually is. The old dude who runs the raffle had a conniption fit over somebody touching his ticket box thingy and then he cussed out everybody for talking too much.  When they're not being disgusting or slow I find ornery old people amusing.  I wonder if I will become one ....

Spoilery squee-harshing for the Supernatural finale ... )

Wow, I posted 3 times today. I think that's a record for me.

Okay, so now we're on hiatus and I'm back to the love of my life: Alec. Poor Alec happens to have appeared in a show that, let's be honest, wasn't really very good. But I keep watching and watching and watching it just for his sake. And desperately looking for fic that features him. Well, I found a bonanza, my friends. *flails* Behold ... da da dum dum ...

[livejournal.com profile] comment_fic

There is A WHOLE LIST of Dark Angel ficcies!! YAY!! You can find that list HERE, along with the fics of many, many other fandoms. If you don't feel like sorting through all those, and you'd like some recs of good ficcies, feel free to access my delicious account HERE for ones I liked.

Not only can you READ some very entertaining fic (most of it Alec/Logan), but you can PROMPT people to write it for you, or WRITE it yourself! Ain't that awesome! HERE'S the list of lonely prompts that are dying for you to write them. Alas, this list includes one of my prompts - for a Max/Alec fic - Alec manages to consume such an epic amount of alcohol that he gets drunk and says something inappropriate to Max. Somebody please write it for me? And please put more Max/Alec prompts up? Cause, you know, I need to cherish my other heterosexual ship (the first being my marriage, lol).

Lastly, I wrote a little comment fic of my own:

Title: Untitled
Rating: PG
Words: 541
Prompt: [livejournal.com profile] downfall35 wanted Alec/Logan, night terrors
 


Now I'm off to a meeting of my bird club, which is always entertaining because apparently, people who go to bird clubs are ... unique.  What does that make me?

Hello lovelies!  Some piccies from my animal kingdom below.

Oh, wow! Somebody left me a Valentine over at the Valentine's Day Game.  Thank  you, anonymous person!!!!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day! 

My second gleeful flail is that my first baby cockatiels have started to be hatched!!!!!! I just peeked in the nest box of one of my hens sitting on eggs (I have 4) and saw two tiny little gray chicks!! One didn't appear to be moving, so it may not have made it, but the other was quite alive.  The hen is still sitting on two more eggs, so hopefully there will be more chicks soon!  I'm so excited!!!! 

Also, I am flailing with glee because[livejournal.com profile] fanfic_read_by  just posted the podfic of one of my favorite Dark Angel Max/Alec stories - The Hubbert Peak by[livejournal.com profile] musesfool .  YAY!!!!  It's wonderfully well done, and HOT like burning.  Plus, Alec.  *slobber slobber*

Saw Friday the 13th and found it to be "boobalicious" which the hubster liked.  I really liked Jared in a tight t-shirt.  And Jared on a motorbike.  And Jared running through the woods.  And Jared just basically breathing and looking constipated concerned.  YUM.  Anyhow, I liked the movie okay. It was less dumb than most slasher pics. High praise, huh?

Also, the hubster and I finally watched Transformers this morning.  I really liked the first half of the movie, even though the pacing was so frenetic it was like a hamster on speed, but the last half of the movie was excruciatingly long and confusing and I just wanted it to be over.  Couldn't the producers have saved about 100 million dollars by making the dang thing shorter?  Then it might have actually made sense.  But whatever.  Shia LeBouf is AWESOME and I say this in a non-lustful way, lol.  My daughter used to watch him on that Disney show where he had a sister.  He really stood out as amazingly talented (much like Michael J. Fox when he first hit the screen) so I figured I'd see him in the future and I'm so happy he's on the silver screen. 

Also, this pic?  Priceless:

Love to all!!

[livejournal.com profile] parisindy turned me on to the following very relevant quiz. Don't you feel somewhat comforted by the results?

37%
 


Brings to mind the time I taught about the Donner Party to my California History class. I made the class watch a detailed video about it. Some of them were none too pleased with me about that. Oh, well. What can I say? I used to read survivors' accounts for FUN.

On somewhat the same subject (friends, anyhow) I managed to inadvertently anger and hurt the feelings of a couple of you this week. Thankfully, the injured parties contacted me and we worked things out, which I really appreciate, but I thought I would break out the puppy picture of DOOM once again to apologize to anyone who I may have hurt in the past or who I may distress in the future:




According to the quiz results, I may have to eat some of you at some point. But, rest assured, I'll feel REALLY bad about it.

Also, remember when I was all excited that one of my mated cockatiel couples (NOTE TO [livejournal.com profile] lunaste - I'm talking about BIRDS, not COCKTAILS) laid some eggs? Well, they turned out to be unfertilized. BUT something has come over the rest of the birds - maybe the warmer weather we've been having here? - and a bunch of them have been very randy lately. So maybe I'll have some chick pics to show you at some point ... :-)

Also - again - I am quite proud of myself for my icon choice. It's the circle of life, you know? *cue demented laughter*

*big hugs to everyone who has to endure my sense of humor*

I haven't bothered naming most of my 21 birds because, frankly, I may have to sell a bunch of them; plus I can't quite tell a lot of the cockatiels apart, lol.  But, I'm in love with my canaries and have decided to name them.  I named the girl Moe after the Three Stooges character because she has this charming little mop of hair atop her little birdie head.  And I've decided to name the boy ZED after my darling [profile] zed_pm in honor of a generous gift she sent me and because it just seems to fit him. *BIG HUGS TO MY CHRISSY*

Piccy time!!!

Okay, now for some TV stuff!! 

Sarah Connor Chronicles continues to kick ass and take names. I LOVE this show. It's so multilayered and thought-provoking - verging on confusing at times.  But with the exception of that episode where Charlie's wife bit the big one, I've really enjoyed each episode this season.  I especially like the care taken with the characters (and Derek's hot tattooed bod).  The plot and flashy action scenes compliment the characters, not the other way around, which is how it should be in my ever-so-humble opinion.  Anybody want the mp3 of the Sampson and Delilah song that played in the season opener?  Here, have it. :-)

Who's watching Merlin?  I'm really enjoying it.  The latest episode - #12 - was my favorite.  Without giving anything away in case you haven't seen it, it's focused on Morgana.  I think Morgana is my favorite character.  Arthur is okay, too.  But everyone else is rather ... one dimensional.  Even Merlin.  Anyhow, I love that Morgana seems to be flirting with darkness ... I can upload these in Ipod (m4a) format if anyone wants me to.  Just let me know. What I really like about the show is the way that it takes the same old myths we've seen a gajillion times and twists them just enough to make them fresh and interesting. 

Also, I watched the first two episodes of Leverage.  I loved the pilot.  It was smart and fun and I found myself liking all the characters (and REALLY liking Christian Kane's character) with the possible exception of Timothy Hutton, who is okay but rather droll, I suppose.  Anyhow, I found episode 2 to be rather, um, how shall I say this nicely?  Dumb.  My hubby watched it with me (he hadn't seen the pilot) and echoed my opinion although the terms he used to describe it were something along the lines of "wretched and stupid."  Anyhow, I'm definitely going to watch more of it, not in the least because next episode is supposed to focus on delicious Mr. Kane's character.

Apparently, the slashtastic Crusoe has been cancelled, although there are still six new episodes yet to air.  Sigh.  Oh, well.  Hopefully we'll see more of Philip Winchester.  He's quite yummy.

After episode 3 of Fringe, I declared it too stupid to bear, but I've started watching it again.  I watch it at the gym on my Zune, and find that while the gore sometimes causes me to make horrified faces, I nevertheless enjoy it enough to do 48 minutes on the elliptical machine with it as diversion.  I also have most of these in iPod format if anyone wants me to upload them.

I've still got sadiane's recommended episodes of Due South on the Zune, waiting to be watched, and a bunch of episodes of the UK Life on Mars.  I've watched the first 3 eps of Life on Mars.  It's okay, but I sometimes find it hard to understand due to the accents, I suppose. 

I haven't watched this much TV in years.  It's fun!! :-)

Okay, first the important news. My cockatiel mama now has THREE EGGS in her nest box!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Aren't you hysterically excited just like me????  What?  You're not??  LOL  In other bird news, I'm now the proud owner of 4 more cockatiels and 2 canaries after attending the local bird show on Sunday.  It's really hard to take pics of birds through their cage, which is why these suck, but here's a couple of piccies of the canaries:

Along these lines, I've decided to set up a writing community to debut January 1, 2009.  The idea is to support myself and others to write EVERY SINGLE DAY, on any sort of project - fanfic, original fic, nonfic, school essays, whatever.  I'm a writer, dammit.  I have to stop letting myself procrastinate my life away.  I've proved to myself that I can write every day despite the fact that I'm afraid it will be crap, blah blah blah.  Anyhow, please consider joining.  [livejournal.com profile] thedailywriter
