Me complaining.

Dec. 8th, 2008 | 09:00 pm

I hate having a free account. I hate the ads on my page and the non "my style" page for cut pages and comments. And the not being able to polls. I don't really have any money left on my US check card to pay for an account though. Boo.

Chas found this and posted to his blog but I stole it.

I don't think I have many (if any) Mc Cain/Palin supporters on my flist, but this is not meant to offend anyone. I just think it is amusing that someone put these two characters together like this and thought of the parallel.

Doctor Who Meme from Fran

Jun. 27th, 2008 | 08:16 am

Ok, so it is really hard to narrow it down to one quote because there are so many fab quotes from the show, so I have a bit of a scene here...it was this scene here that sealed the deal with David Tennant playing the 10th Doctor. And this was the Christmas special...not even the start of Season 2.


Harriet Jones: Who is this!?

Rose: That's the Doctor.

Harriet Jones: Not my Doctor! Or is it just an honorary title that gets passed down?

The Doctor: No, I'm him; I'm literally him. Same man, new face. Well, new everything.

Harriet Jones: That can't be!

The Doctor: Harriet Jones. We were trapped in Downing Street, and the thing that scared you most wasn't the aliens; it wasn't the war; it was the thought of your mother being alone.

Harriet Jones: [realising] Oh my God!

The Doctor: [smiling] Did you win the election?

Harriet Jones: [nodding] Landslide majority.

Sycorax Leader: [angrily] If I may interrupt...!

The Doctor: Yes, sorry; hello there, big fella!

Sycorax Leader: Who exactly are you?

The Doctor: [Grinning] Well, that's the question!

Sycorax Leader: [Bellowing] I demand to know who you are!

The Doctor: [Mimicking] I don't knooooow! [normal] See, there's the thing. I'm the Doctor, but beyond that.... I-I just don't know, I literally do not know who I am. It's all untested. Am I funny? Am I sarcastic? Sexy? [winks at Rose] Right old misery? Life and soul? Right-handed? Left-handed? A gambler? A fighter? A coward? A traitor? A liar? A nervous wreck? I mean, judging by the evidence I've certainly got a gob! And how am I gonna react when I see this? A great big threatening button. Ah-hah.

[sees the control matrix and runs up to it]

The Doctor: A great big threatening button which must not be pressed under any circumstances, am I right? Let me guess, it's some sort of control matrix, hmm? Hold on, what's feeding it? And what have we got here? Blood? :[tastes] Yep, definitely, blood, human blood, A-positive, with just a dash of iron. Haagh. But that means.... blood control; blood control!! Awwww, I haven't seen blood control for years! You're controlling all the A-positives. Which leaves us with a great, big, stinking problem. 'Cause I really don't know who I am. I don't know when to stop. So if I see a great, big, threatening button -which should never, ever, ever be pressed- then I just wanna do this!

[Presses the button]

How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?

Jun. 23rd, 2008 | 06:44 pm

Ok, I am NOT the kind to watch reality or eliminations based shows, but this one has gotten my attention, as it has to do with finding someone to play Maria form The Sound of Music, a movie close to my heart. Andrew Lloyd Webber is doing a production of this in Toronto. Anyhow, so they had the auditions and whatnot, then "Maria School" and then a big round of cuts, then a performance in London, another cut, and now we, CANADA, can cast our votes and so on. Anyhow, it has JOHN BARROWMAN from Dr Who and Torchwood among things. *drools*

Simpler things...

Jun. 19th, 2008 | 02:11 pm
mood: melancholymigrainey

Sometimes it takes a migraine for me to see the simpler things in everyday life. For me, today has been one of those days. I decided to let Chas sleep in the bed since he is on the flip side where he is up all night and sleeps in the day (happens every few weeks or so, maybe less) so I slept on the couch while hoping my headache would go away. I just grabbed the eye sleeping mask and pulled a soft blanket over me. I decided against closing the blinds figuring the mask was enough. It's interesting to hear all the sounds that go on during the day here, both inside and outside. And while there was noise, with my eyes closed and covered with the mask, and with the blanket over me, I had a strange sense of calm. So in that way it was simple.

My food today has also been simple. Usually, my migraine food of choice is Campbell's Chicken and Stars soup. I know it's not a "grown up" soup and it is a very basic and mediocre soup, it has a few things that appeal to me. Mainly it is just comforting and tastes good, but additionally, the small bits make it easier to eat and doesn't make me feel sick or sicker. Of course it is easy to prepare and eat on days when the nausea won't simmer down. So that's why I try to have a can or two of that around at all times. But right now I don't.

So I looked at my pantry and fridge for easy to make and eat foods that wouldn't cause more stomach distress. This morning I had some multi-grain oatmeal and I stirred in some peach yogurt. Not amazingly gourmet or tasty, but bland enough to keep down and keep the hunger pains at bay (oatmeal is always good for keeping me full). So it was sorta like my own peaches and cream oatmeal. It could have been a tad sweeter for my tastes but it was still not bad. But it was simple.

For lunch I grabbed a few handfuls of bowtie pasta and cooked in my skillet (boiled for about 10 minutes or so). I know, I should use a pot to boil pasta in but for this small amount my 10" everyday pan works just fine. I drained the noodles the cheater way by placing the lid on the pan, and with mitted hands held the lid on while tipping over the sink to drain the water. I returned the pan to the stove (with the burner off) and added some olive oil (a light quick drizzle), Cavender's Greek Seasoning (a light sprinkling), and Parmesan cheese (a few good shakes). Normally I'd have preferred to use real parmesan and grate it rather than the stuff in a can, but in this case it was ok as it was easy peasy. I didn't really measure the amounts, but if I had to guess, I'd say maybe a half a tablespoon of the olive oil, an 1/8 teaspoon of the seasoning, and a tablespoon or so of the cheese? Really, I just eyeballed it.

Thing is, at least with the last dish, it really is a tasty and simple dish that can be made and eaten whenever...it just took a migraine for me to decide on something so simple like this. And it definitely has that comfort feel too. I think that too many people think that food has to have all these complex flavors and combinations and such...and while that is good to experience, there is something to be said about simple cooking and tasting food.

Well, I guess that is all for now. I think I may go have a hot bath now.
