Hello Hello Hello!

I'm in a terrific mood, even though I slept weird. Intensely detailed dreams, back pain (oy - planted a peach tree and almost too late!) and excitement for Spring. What? Some people get excited about Spring, it's a thing...? :D Also, we had Balloonists overhead all weekend! There's a balloonery (we have no idea what it's called when a bunch of hot air balloon enthusiasts get together, so we chose Balloonery, hee!) near our house, so seeing them off in the distance isn't unusual. But these were DIRECTLY OVER HEAD!! Like, skimming (almost) rooftops!!

I took these from my car's window as I was heading home from the grocery store, but trust me: objects in picture are CLOSER than they appear. I could see the "balloonists?" waving at me and smiling, that's how close they were!


Also, I've been looking for a brand of curry that comes in ready to go blocks for about TEN YEARS, I kid you not, and finally FINALLY found it in Little India (a neighborhood of Botswanans here in DFW - I kid. They're Guatemalans. HA.) and bought all I could. It makes the BEST curry sauce, and it's no fuss! (Apparently I should have had an easier time finding this - believe me, I KNOW.) And warning: hot is FLAMING. And I'd like to think I know from hot. Medium hot is something my kids can eat. So I made a curry last night with sweet potatoes and onions and carrots and chicken over barley, because we're trying to eat healthier. NUM. I'm going to use some to make dal later this week. I LOVE FOOD, zomg.

I'm going to use Invisiotext for the Rome spoilers, since this is embedded in a post about lots of other things. Hit CTRL + A to read.

OKAY. OCTAVIAN. I fucking love him so much. Oh my GOD with the love of hurting people for his sexual pleasure? And his new "wife" obviously A OK with that? *bites knuckle* And MARC ANTONY AND OCTAVIAN. Was it just me, or were Octavian's eyes watering from sexual pleasure at being choked? And do you get the implications of him being turned on by beatings? "She set her lover to beating me!" WHERE IS THE FIC, PEOPLE. Where.

Oh, VORENUS. He made me choke up last night. He really has become that which he despises, huh? And him begging Antony... Basically, I'd like some fic with Octavian and Pullo and Marc Antony and VOrenus, then someone rings a bell and they all swap partners. Pullo losing his wife... I mean, I knew it was coming, but it made me sad and it made me HAAAAAATE Gaia. Oooh, she's fun. Pulo biting out a TONGUE! My husband said last night: "How would you get the tongue? He'd had to lick it or- " Then he turned red and I laughed because YEAH.

Basically, I'm very sad this show is almost over - I love it.

End Spoilers.

Also, i firmly believe that Pullo looks like a Roman version of Henry Rollins. Check it out:

See? Mmmmm, Henry. Whatever, I freaking love that weird, angry man. BLACK FLAG! lml ^_^ lml

And last, but not least, I have music!

Here's a Monday Mix of fun music, some new, some a few years old - ALL GOOD! Some dl'ded from my flist, some from searching the web. I believe in sharing. :D

  • One More With Feeling - Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly (best band name ever)
  • She Is - The Fray
  • Shoot The Runner - Kasabian (bonus for this being from Friday Night Lights - WHICH WAS SHOOTING HERE YESTERDAY. The season finale! And they wanted locals to come to the stadium for filming, but I didn't go because... I didn't want to be spoiled. :( Oh, and they wanted a 10 hour commitment. YIPES.)
  • Dashboard - Modest Mouse (from their new album!)
  • For The Actor - Mates of State
  • Wraith Pinned To The Mist - Of Montreal
  • I'm Not In Love - 10cc (hee hee!)
  • Supermassive Blackhole - Muse (man, I'm loving this song today.)

And so I prepare for library trips, wheee! Happy Monday! ETA Oh my GOD. Richard Jeni! Just.. not what I expected to read today, that's for sure. RIP - his funny Jaws 4 bit. :(

Ha! Good curry sauce needs to come from people who know good hot curry sauce. This stuff will blow away any dust lurking anywhere in your body so unless you want to be dust free use it sparingly and not the whole bottle as recommended.

And yes, I'm totally with you about young Caesar and his "interesting" peccadillos.
Mar. 12th, 2007 04:00 pm (UTC)
Well, unless you've had the curry sauce I'm talking about, I wouldn't be so quick to say it's not good! :) But thanks for the link, I'll definitely give that a shot! I'm a fan of curry in all forms, mmmmm.
Mar. 12th, 2007 04:04 pm (UTC)
BALLOONERY!!! That's my favorite word now. I will use it being as we have much 'balloonery' here in AZ at 5-6am.

Also. CV. Yes. Found on Myspace. found a whole LH forum. It's hilarious. Must chat!

HELLO! Those blocks of curry sound good. I should find the oriental markets in town and Invest. And now I go to finish your ANS fic and leave feedback!

Also I sort of love Henry Rollins too. I don't know why.
Mar. 12th, 2007 04:40 pm (UTC)
Those blocks of curry are AWESOME. You just melt them in boiling water - they taste very "handmade" instead of chalky, like a lot of bottled curries I've had over the years. Mmmmmm.

You love Henry Rollins because he's AWESOME and SEXY. Mmmm. Or is that why I love him? :D

YAY, Spring! All the mountain laurels are blooming and it smells like Grape Bubbleyum all over town. In a good way!

The balloonery is fantastic. It's like having the Goodyear Blimp fly over your house when you were a kid. Yes, we got really excited.
Mar. 12th, 2007 06:58 pm (UTC)
BALLOONERY! Oh, man, wasn't that the best when you saw the Goodyear blimp as a kid? Now my kids hop on their bikes and race down the street, following the balloons. Last fall we had a very exciting time when one of the balloons landed RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET in the open field my house faces!!

Mmmm, mountain laurels! Oh, I love those.
Mar. 12th, 2007 05:17 pm (UTC)
Oh my GOD, Richard Jeni! Everything I was going to say about ballooneries and curry just fell straight out of my brain. I'm shocked to my toes.

Oh, Richard. Why do comics have to be so stupid? And unhappy? And tragic.

Mar. 12th, 2007 06:59 pm (UTC)
I was so shocked, too! What the hell, Jeni? And in front of his girlfriend. So sad. Such a waste.

*puts the curry and ballooneries back in your head, because it's nicer that way*

Also: hugs.

OMG the tongue!! and the battle axe into Gresius or whatever his name was.

And if Gaia ever lets it slip what she did, he'll dismember her!
Mar. 12th, 2007 07:01 pm (UTC)
DUDE. This SHOW, Irene, THIS SHOW!!!

You know, my theory as to why I'm not freaking out more about this season is because I'm not sucking it all down in one go like I did with S1 - and there's not the fun pop-up info like on the DVDs. Let's just say that I'll probably freak out when I get S2 on DVD and can absorb ALL. *amoebas you*

I have always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon. So cool.

A is a huge Muse fan. And i am a huge Modest Mouse fan, so I ask you - is their new album good? (I am down with any group who sings about Charles Bukowski. Because that's awesome. Especially since they call him an asshole.)

Has Rollins and this other dude ever been seen togther? because I think they're obviously related.
Mar. 12th, 2007 07:06 pm (UTC)
*taps lips* Hmmm, And Rollins is salt-n-pepa like Ray Stevenson (Titus Pullo of Rome)...

And I gotta say, I'm only a fan of certain MM songs - I can't listen to a whole album. BUT. There are some GOOD songs on this one - much more listenable than other albums of theirs, IMO. Check out the song I have here, and see what you think!

I was pretty shocked that my kids didn't think the curry was too hot - but then, I realized that I added a bit too much water, so it was almost soupy rather than saucy. I don't know if that had anything to do with it, but it's a theory. :D I used to make that curry sauce all the time in college (it was great for crock pots!) and have been looking for it ever since. I mean, not SEARCHING like my child went missing, but you know what I mean. *g*

Balloonery! And we see them almost every weekend, just not RIGHT over the roof! One day I will ride in a balloon, oh yes.

(Oooh, and OT, but is that offer for a visit still good? It would just be me and the kiddos, but I was thinking it would be lots of fun to show them Boston and have them meet your kids, etc. Just one night, btw. If not, NO WORRIES. We can always stay in a hotel in the actual city and maybe meet up for food/play?)

Oh! The balloons are cool! That's not something we see in these parts much. I really miss when I lived in New Mexico and could go up to Albuquerque for the ballon fiesta.
Mar. 12th, 2007 07:45 pm (UTC)
Oh my gosh the BALLOONS IN NEW MEXICO! That is such an amazing sight, when they all lift off! The most we've seen at once here is about eight or nine. That's nothing like out in NM!

SQUISH!! Your pretty icon is making me all happy for Spring.

Oh my god, how hot was it with Octavian being choked and TOTALLY TURNED ON?!?! Livia being all, Mmm hmm. I'm so down like a clown with the sound from the underground - Queen, bitchez! *big ups*

Okay, she was way whiter than that, hahahaha. BUT I LOVED IT. Brandi, I fucking love that show.

I have so much love for Henry Rollins. He is my ultimate mate. He is smart, funny and hot. I'm not even going to go there with the whole tattoo thing. He is so beautiful.

*melts into a big ole pile of goo*

I met him briefly about 14 years ago. He was doing a spoken word show at the Birchmere club in Northern VA. He was just hanging out after the show talking to people. My sister and I talked to him for a few minutes. He is so cool.
I just love him.
OOh and I love spring too. It's my favorite.
Mar. 13th, 2007 01:39 pm (UTC)
I love him. I LOVE HIM. I want to run my hands over his big sun tattoo (ahem. I have a similar tat, but elsewhere on my body *wink*) and I want to listen and talk and hang and kiss him, MMMMM.

That is so neat about your meeting him!! JELLIS.
Mar. 13th, 2007 05:34 am (UTC)
Ohhhh, Henry Rollins.


In a baddirtytakemeinafilthybathroom kind of way.

Mar. 13th, 2007 01:40 pm (UTC)
Oh, there's nothing bad dirty about that. That is just GOODNESS. Just don't forget to bring some hand sanitizer for after he's gone.

Hey! The hot air balloons reminded me of a story!

So the second time I ran away from home and made it to Michigan before my parents caught up to me, we stayed the night in Ypsilanti before we started back home the next day. We'd made it through Amish country and all of Ohio, and finally stopped in Morgantown, West Virginia, for lunch. And I KID YOU NOT - there were at LEAST 20 hot-air balloons lined up on either side of the big river that ran STRAIGHT THROUGH the middle of this little city. I have no idea how the balloonists managed to clear all the buildings and stuff, and I have no idea how they managed to get going without running into each other and the buildings, but it was a pretty awesome sight, seeing them all lined up there on the river's edge. Like a flock of birds.

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.
