Reasons That Today Doesn't Suck  
  • It's raining outside and Ms. Lois loves a rainy day. There's nothing more calming in the world to me. Especially when I'm home to enjoy it.
  • Ms. Laurel is caught up on her assignments, which means shiny on the way for me and our fans. :D The ones she made this morning smack of fabulous and we found some new pics the last couple of day that should be awesome.
  • Saw Star Trek on Saturday and was floored by how much I liked it. Seriously. Never really been much of a fan (only ever got into DS9 and I didn't even watch the whole series), but I'm extremely fond of this new franchise already. It doesn't seem anywhere as dry and confusing to me. And Spock, no matter what version, is love. You should have seen my face when I saw Nimoy! XD I hadn't read any spoilers before seeing the film, so that was a thrilling surprise for me. And the new Kirk? I loved him as much as I couldn't stand Shatner's version. Chris Pine, thank you. You and the rest of the cast did the impossible. I'm a fan of Star Trek now. I'm still surprised. Wow.
  • SOMEONE ELSE KNOWS ABOUT MARGOT'S PYGMALION! *dances around* I myself have only seen it once, on late-night on A&E when I was about 15. And it's pretty hard to find these days and, even then, just on VHS. But at least this person got some screen caps. :D And she does such an amazing job as Eliza. I've always adored Audrey Hepburn's take on her, but Margot breathes such snarky life into the character. *loves* I so need to get all of these performances.
  • A day off all alone at the MIL's house just before she gets home. We'll be packing up to go home tonight, but for now, it's all me me me.
  • And the new chapter is set for beta by tonight, so we can actually give saavikam77a little breathing room. Also, for those worried about how dark the story seems to be getting, keep in mind that we did say that it was going to be a multi-layered storyline. It's all about how a family, even a Super-Family, has to cope with changes. And the biggest part of the plot is coming up now. It's not all going to be darkness and angst. Promise. Just give us time. ;)
  • This video is love.

Dammit. *headdesk*

Give me a break: it's my day off, it's raining, and I'm relaxed. I'll worry about spelling tomorrow. *LOL*

One of us! One of us! One of us!! XD

Welcome aboard the crazy train, dear! :D Now, tell me, did the new canon pairing win you over? Huh? Huh? Huh?

*bounces* ^____^

I'm going to be a watcher, but not a writer. Done this way, I can totally see the appeal.

I love the Spock/Uhura, seriously. But it really and truly was the whole cast. I didn't have a moment I did like at all, start to finish. It was just a hell of a lot of fun.

*bounces with you*

No way! *gasps incredulously* Wild horses couldn't drag me away! My ficcish input might seriously be cut for a little while, but that's only until I recover from the squee of Trek. ^_~

*glomps you*

*considers* Okay, I think I might be able to handle that...

...just don't be too long.

glad you liked Star Trek - I liked it much more than I expected. I went into watch Simon Pegg and Leonard Nimoy and came out loving all those actors in their roles. It is just perfectly cast and it had just the right tonality throughout - that makes me very happy. And its made me go back and dip a toe in Star Trek fandom - especially TOS. I've always wondered how much Vulcan is like Krypton which is often portrayed as a society in check with its emotions too. Or more to the point gotta love an alien who has lost his home planet ;)

I actually thought of you the minute I saw Simon! He was so awesome in that! I heard fuss about his Scotty, but they can shove it. I loved his spark of humor throughout. I especially freaked when they first showed him because I wasn't sure when he'd pop up.

And I hear you with Vulcan. The entire storyline for Spock was love. Especially since I had somehow forgotten that he was a half-breed. Which, BTW, hurt my brain. It's hard to think that Winona Ryder is old enough to be someone's mom. *winces*

The hilarious part is that we've had it for days now. And more rain is projected for tomorrow. Not that I'm complaining. :D
