Last post before Butt Numb-a-Thon

By which I mean that I have the DVDs for Freaks and Geeks, and will be inhaling those at an alarming rate. (Dude, I love this show!! I'm only on ep 2, so no spoilers!) I'm kind of digging the WGA strike, because I'm catching up on shows I didn't get to watch due to time constraints. Next up: Battlestar Galactica. Gotta get the DVDs first...

  • Fry's has all of the Angel: The Series sets for 19.99 EACH. Man - where was that deal when I was buying them? (Also check the SUPER CHEAP Supernatural DVDs)
  • If you have a boy you need to buy for (next year) you can take a design they've made, send it to LEGO.com, and they'll MAKE IT FOR YOU. And send instructions for how to build it! How awesome is that? (Check out the house plans there, too. That's what I always did with Legos when I was a kid.)
  • My children have STILL not figured out that I leave clues for what is inside their packages, in the form of the "from" name. (It's never from Mom and Dad.) For adults, it's just random names like Chancellor Velorum or Miss Kitty Fantastico. Why have a normal name when you can be cracked out? <-- my motto for living
  • If you need to buy for younger kids (next year) bookmark WOODKINS - as a mother of three, I can tell you without reservation that everything here is AWESOME. Especially to stow in a bag for unexpected waits, like in a dr.s office, etc. Yay imagination!
  • I want SO BADLY to post our "holiday letter" and photo, but cannot until the actual day of Santamas, because a few of my RL friends on LJ are getting them, and I don't want to... spoil it. *g* I'll post it on the 25th
  • I am going to eat good Southern Indian food today, and I'm very excited. Mmm, curry potato crepes, here I come!

HAVE A WONDERFUL CHRISMAKWANZANUKKAHMAS! (And happy Solstice/Hogmanay/Sanghamitta/Wren/Yule Day to those that observe! And for my fellow atheists, Happy Tuesday! *G*)

It makes me so sad there was only one season and that NBC screwed it over the way they did. :(((

Merry Santamas, Stoney!!! <3 <3 <3

Oh my god, I LOOOOVE this show. And yeah - NBC screwed up. It's perfect!! Waaah.

I so wish my friends would start cranking out the babies, I'm sick of buying prezzies for the teen scene.

"Freaks and Geeks" is fantastic.

Day-um, I've been to Fry's a billion times this holiday season and didn't even look at the DVDs.

Dec. 21st, 2007 06:04 pm (UTC)
Teens are hard - they're so specific with what they want, and surly when they don't get it. :P

Fry's is a GREAT place for DVD sets - they're usually super cheap!

Dec. 21st, 2007 04:48 pm (UTC)
Not only are the Angel DVDs cheap, but the packaging is slimmer! They would take up SO MUCH LESS ROOM now!

Also....the lego thing sounds cool! But link is actually taking me to an LJ.

That's weird - that's a C&P from yesterday. Anyway, fixed now, thanks for telling me!

The packaging is slimmer? That's pretty badass, right there!

::gasps:: Oh, my god. Monkeyboy's head will simply ASPLODE next year.

And damn - I'm still missing Angel Season 4, so this is excellent news. I'll have to grab one when I get back. :)
Dec. 21st, 2007 06:07 pm (UTC)
Dude, SERIOUSLY. Is that not the coolest thing EVER?!?! I've tried to tell everyone I know with boys under 12. My Boy has no idea that he's getting a creation he drew, and I cannot wait for his reaction. :D

Yay for getting DVDs!! (And hey. Season 4 has some of my favorite moments. *g*)

Happy Yule!

Hahahahahaha!! That's pretty much what I do, too! (Except I would have known the Aragorn, because I'm a proud nerd.)

Happy Holidays!

I can't believe it's already another Christmas and I am not able to celebrate it with parents, woe. I want lights, song, and snow, dammit! Here we're on dreary rain season. And you have me craving Indian food now. I've never tasted curry potato crepes and they sound delicious.

OMG I have to tell you, because apparently I have to tell everyone: I'm going to be a writer for a show on ShanghaiTV. Which means I have quit the nightmare pr job with the nightmare boss and am actually going to be working in television. *squees* Best Christmas present I received this year!

That is the BEST news in the history of news!!! How freaking wonderful! I am VERY proud of you, and tchuh - you will be AWESOME.

(And I am so sorry that you are so far away from mom and dad! *hugs* Are they going to try and come out, or anything like that? I send you hugs and smooches for this holiday, regardless!)

:* :*

I've been bouncing high like a kite for days now :DDD

And I'll get to see my parents in February over the Chinese New Year holiday. Yes!

*smooooooooches you* *for being awesomely Stoney*
Dec. 21st, 2007 10:32 pm (UTC)
Freaks and Geeks was I think the most frustratingly unjustified early cancellation *ever*. I love that show so, so much. *hugs my DVDs*
Dec. 22nd, 2007 03:58 pm (UTC)
I am SO loving it. It has so many moments from my high school days, too. (I think we all can identify with it, you know?) WHat a great show.
Dec. 21st, 2007 11:09 pm (UTC)
Om nom nom dosai! I want Indian food, except that my stomach is ooky, so... *mohnches toast*

The Woodkins site looks great! I'm going to try to snag something for Miss C there. :D
Dec. 22nd, 2007 04:02 pm (UTC)
Ooooh, Indian food would be a Bad Idea on an upset tum, for sure! :( I shall send you hope of ginger snaps to settle your belleh, should you still have an ookie tum!

My step-mom - who is one of the BEST gift-givers for children in the history of children's gifts - turned me on to that place when The Boy and #2 were small. The little doll you can dress by laying scraps of fabric down and laying the top wooden piece down? Hands down, the fave. Plus, when Miss C's mom has extra scraps of fabric, you can use little squares of it for the toy! There's a magnet/doll world gift, too, that was a big hit. And it's all self-contained. It's like Colorforms, but chunky magnet pieces! (Man, I loooooved Colorforms when I was a kid!)

Um... my energy levels from a few nights ago haven't dropped yet. *g*

Woodkins is so cute. I am sad that my boys are too old.

My devil spawn ate the last three pieces of your fudge. They are evil.
Have a happy everything!
Dec. 22nd, 2007 04:03 pm (UTC)
Are they evil because they are now filled to the brim with sugar? Or are they evil because they deprived you? Honestly, I'm surprised the fudge lasted that long! It disappears quickly in my house, much to my chagrin. *g* (I'm really glad you liked it - I was talking big, you know? Hee!)

*hugs you*

I wonder if Evan might get back into them, though. My boy went through a similar phase, about 8 years old at the time. When they let go of things you loved to see them love, it's hard. I was sad when Emily called "Dora" a show for babies. :( But... who's that super cool exploradora?

And I'm right there with you on holiday music. Growing up with a choir master, it was ALL about CHristmas music. I still get completely thrilled (and emotionally overcome) by certain songs. "Once in Royal David's City" stands as my all time favorite, along with Berlioz's "The Shepherds' Farewell" as a close second.

I definitely want to hear your tale!! *hugs you* (Also, keep your eyes peeled on a brown package!)

Freaks and Geeks is absolutely in my Top 5 perfect series. I've watched it probably 3 times now and I'm always amazed at the sheer weight of awesome it contains.

Though I can see why it didn't "make it." The viewers who were cool kids want nothing to do with the geeks/freaks--and the viewers who weren't suffer too much from watching their old horrors played out.

Those of us who like torture, however, are rewarded.

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.
