Random Saturday Morning Thoughts

Um... Mr. S isn't getting home until Wed. Normally he'd be home by now. Aaaaaand the kids are out on Spring Break. I'm a married single lady. BOOOOO. But on the plus side, my in-laws want to visit! Um, yay? Which means I have to mop. I loathe mopping. Unless there's good music on - mopping requires Motown, I've decided. Like, Gladys Knight and the Pipps. but #2 was sick all last night, so I may beg off their coming over to relax. MIL is majorly germ phobic.

Little things that amuse me: I mentioned that Will/Jack broke up in our RPG. Check out both character's user info pages for the "interests" that have changed. Strindberg minus helium!! Bwah! WHY AM I SO AMUSED sad by little things like this??? ( _willferrell and tropnevad: click on the head to go straight to user info) In other RPG news: I am ignoring that someone is leaving. I accept it, but I do NOT. Woe. ALSO: we now have a DOLLY PARTON. Ahem. ddd_dolly Are you kidding me? COME ON! Hilarity? ENSUE. Still taking applications for new celebs, preferably big name stars in USA or UK. Sorry CANADA. Boo-yah! note to someone: such as a Matt Damon. Or Megan Mullaly. Or other.

I have plants and flowers and buds and hummingbirds and a cool, breezy gardening day ahead of me and I am looking forward to it. Nothing cures winter blahs like being outside and hearing birds. Just me? Am I secretly an old lady? My Japanese Maples are leafing out and they are eggplant, almost black and underneath is my ajuga that puts out indigo blossoms and there will be pictures because the color contrast is STUNNING. *happy sigh*

I hired the quasi-homely neighbor girl (this is key when obtaining babysitters. Pretty girls have dates. I want a troll with a hump and an extra arm. Possibly a limp. She'll ALWAYS be free on Friday nights!) to sit with the cheerins today so I can go see "The Libtertine" with Johnny Depp. And Jack Davenport. WHAT?!

Next week I will be conducting an experiment in porn/vs. humor. Yeah, this is SERIOUS HIGH BROW EXPERIMENTATION. (My theory? No matter what, people on LJ read porn. 'Tis all they care about. Harumph. Isn't this a SHOCKING theory?)

FINALLY: (for about five of you) "I looked out the window and what did I see?"
(you!)

I have about fifty red-winged blackbirds living in the oak trees. They've been there since December, eating the black sunflower seedand doing their John-Cage-Meets-John Galloway massed choral song. The chickadees think they are rather unnecessary.

Spring was zooming right along, forsythias in bloom and all, until the weather patterns in the North Pacific decided to get creative and dump a wide variety of frozen and semi frozen and just very damned cold precipitation on us, with periods of gale force winds to up the amusement value.

Oh, looking forward to seeing the bovines. Saw some baby porcine this morning on my walk at the ranch up the way and about melted.

My tomatoes are sitting in a sunny spot on top of the fridge waiting for the Date I Have Been Trained To Wait For: March 17 - last average frost of the season. Today is all about preparing my rock gardens for the cool sedums I bought this week. And another thorny, sweet smelling thing that gets a place of honor at the front of the house. :)

Dear Jesus,

May I please be Lily Tomlin so I can fulfill my fanstasies of getting naked and sweaty with Dolly?

Yours eternally,

Mother Mary

Seriously. I'm applying. Just try to stop me.

check out the user info page at a_list_celebs for what's needed for application, see the character list, figure out if you really wanna dive in, then SEND THAT PUPPY to celeb_letters2U [at] hotmail.com.

there's a strong emphasis on ensemble play - it's what makes it so fun!

HE IS. I swear, one day that man needs to wake up and get some personal representation and get his NAME out. (He does everything by himself, so as to not "go Hollywood." Aww! *thumps his head* He could be the next Hugh Grant! Erm, sorry Hugh!)

Seriously: babysitters need to be ugly. And poor. Lotta rich kids around here that don't work!! What? I swear, my kids are gonna be rollin' in cash and jobs when they get old enough to babysit. Because I believe in putting kids to work! What the hell?

FLOWERS. (Did you ever see that email I sent you about planting creeping phlox in your daylily bed? You'll love the look, promise.)

I saw the Libertine. Do not go see that movie with your parents; it's embarrassing. It's good I think, though I felt like the plot had lots of trouble. Jonny Depp is freakin' amazing (like, even more amazinger than usually) and I don't see why they didn't wait to release this so it'd have a better chance at getting him an Oscar. It was only toward the end I was like OMG Norrington. What a hottie he is. I didn't know he was in it.

hahaha! Like I'd see a movie with JD or JD in it with my parents! They'd get uncomfrortable with all my moaning. :D

I've been waiting for this movie since... September? T-minus three hours! (And if I can get ass in gear, I should have something to send you this weekend for beta? *large watery eyes*

*SIGH* I thought mornings were s'posed to make everything more clear. Have fun at the movies ~ I may end up going to see it tomorrow, because my gawd! how long have we been talking about this? Also, love the new user info (a little surprised there was no coke/pepsi references though. I'm just sayin') although the one of Dav's about upstaging Johnny Depp made me snort coffee, because come ON!

I know!!! We've talked about it for MONTHS. I'm even putting off seeing Winter's Passing to see The Libertine first! (such a bad fangirl.) COKE/PEPSI, you GENIUS YOU!!

*cough* remember what I said about the whole... changing your mind thing. BUT I UNDERSTAND. But I'll miss you. BUT I UNDERSTAND.

Ahem.

You are an old lady...but one of those ones doing crazy things that you see in greeting cards *g*

It is BEAUTIFUL here, Laura. The birds are tweeting outside my window, and the sky is blue. All the trees along the boulevard are blossoming. Makes me forget that two days ago it tried to snow.

See, I like a story that's porn AND humour. That is the holy mecca of fanfic. But given a choice between good porn and good comedy, I choose comedy. I have an imagination. If push comes to shove, I can use it.

And, if you were lokking for a celeb like, say Alex Trebek, would you hold it against him that he was Canadian? *g*

Porn vs humor? I say, get right on it!

(And really, do you want your ILs over?)

stoney321
Mar. 11th, 2006 12:14 pm (UTC)
Ha! The humor is up already (I mean, it's more than that - I'm pretty proud of how that fic turned out, actually, but people here want the unf and the ungh and the spurt. *shrugs*)

NO TO THE ILs. And they are not coming, haha! The fear of germs was enough to drive them away, and I'm off to grab the homely teen! (And it turns out #2 just snuck sweets into her room and engorged, hence the... sick. No germs to fear, woot!)

*clings*

I don't get to watch The Libertine until at least Sunday nightish. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! *sniff*

I'm saying that a lot lately

No matter what, people on LJ read porn. People are just too afraid to let loose their inner prudes.

Also: *pines!!!!*

I think I'm going to slip out for a few hours tomorrow and see Winter's Passing. I'm getting all of my fannishness in!

(You gonna be around any tonight?)

Japanese Maples? Wah. So sorry. I can't grow them here. They'd get fried. I want one.

Yep. Came to LJ for the porn. And well, the fic. The fic with porn in it.
stoney321
Mar. 12th, 2006 05:41 am (UTC)
Oh, they get FRIED here if you don't plant them in shade. Has to be full shade in Texas. *pokes you* If we can grow them, you surely can. You just have to put them out of the wind and afternoon sun.

Hahaha! Well, that answers my theory! :D

Hi, Anne! (That last line was the intro to a children's hymn in the Mormon church - about spring blossoms. VERY inside, that was. :* )

And I ended up canceling as Emily started throwing up, in addition to her sister. So. No movie for Laura - just more playing nursemaid and making everyone drink clear liquids (ugh).

I called Mr. S, and he's coming home TODAY. (I'm getting into the cycle of NEED MY HUSBAND and his work-ethic can take a blow for a few days, you know? I was quite awful last night and put myself to bed without supper. :)

How did it go? Have you posted?

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
