seriousmoonlight: (gone fishin')

This weekend The Robert Shaw Film Fest goes on (so far Jaws [naturally, since Quint is my main man. And I'd dislike him like whoa in real life but watching him do his thing in the movies is great -] and From Russia With Love (first non Daniel Craig Bond film! Now the floodgates are open and I plan to try and watch the Dalton movies soon) with The Taking of Pelham One Two Three orginal style, and Force 10 from Navarone (hey baby faced Harrison Ford! And Bond Girl/Mrs. Ringo Starr Barbra Bach!)

Friday Reads )
seriousmoonlight: (for serious; the world is crazy)
Woke up this morning at 4:30 to the sounds of my dog vomiting all over my slippers. For an encore she vomited on my WCA: Family Ties hardback. Thankfully that was brand new and hadn't come out of the shrink wrap yet so it was okay. (Yeah, I was so tired when I got home yesterday I got my comics from the mail was all; 'yay' and then dumped them in my room without looking at them.)

Had a really bad nightmare last night about my skin falling off .... so you know I'm feeling great right now. I love hormones.

Anyways, Happy Valentines people. Here Housewares Employee from the Evil Dead: the Musical. The big epic love song between Ash and Linda

Happy Halloween!

I'd give you all real treats but you know ... so instead virtual treat bonanza :P. Less filling, but less fattening so ... win? :P

Annnndd now for something completely different:

Am so looking forward to seeing Kevin Smith :D
seriousmoonlight: (languish)
Cold has moved from my lungs back into my sinus. Not as bad as it was this time last week, but my voice sounds all weird, and kind of like Krang's. I feel I should be barking out orders at my clueless minions, and cursing those meddling turtles.

Also I'm laughing so hard that the local radio station was posting all day about their "zombie plan".

The finalized plan was:

A Recap of our Zombie plan.Base is the Costco in Dartmouth Crossing,on route grab; Booze, Banjos, Weapons, Go Carts and Cricket bats. Then when we need to make our escape (Costco further North) we take 18wheelers, RV's, Metro Buses and the Harbor Hopper with our set list (bellow) and never look back. Phase 5 is simple. We all make a copy of this plan, hide it, and never speak of it again. Deal?

I can not even put into words how excited I am for 4:30. This has been a trying week, and I am ready to close the book on it. Actually last Saturday and Sunday were the start of the "urgh", so I'm hoping that at 4:30 today I can just slip into weekend mode and relax. And enjoy. That be nice.

Also. I was out shopping last night and I came across a display of school supplies out in a store already. Fuck you school supplies! I'm not ready to see you on display yet!
seriousmoonlight: (gone fishin')
I have a problem using guns in games where the game doesn't like target for me. I'm all "SCREW THIS -- PUNCHY TIME!" or "ALTERNATE FORM OF COMBAT TIME." Which is why I was having some issues last night when I started playing Uncharted 2 again. But also why I just won two more bare knuckle bruiser trophies in Uncharted 2 [or whatever it is they are called the message flashed up on my screen during play but I was kinda busy ... hitting the square button]. So in honor of that .... Punched!.

Now I just gotta figure out what I'm meant to do (not run around and punch people obvis ...) and save Sully.

I did this last night and then ... whoops! forgot to post it. So last nights random meme of random.

Instructions: answer these questions, and replace any question you dislike with a new, original question. Then tag some people Meme if you wanna, I'm not tagging anyone..

"The Canadiens and Bruins will meet for the 33rd time in the playoffs, the most of any two NHL clubs. Montreal has won 24 of those, although the Bruins swept the Habs in the last series in 2009."

Come on Montreal! Come oooonnnn.

This weekend was awesome (is awesome actually as it is still going on ...) but hectic as hell. With the first nice weather we've had since ... well since the winter hit, it was the weekend of the yard work, and trying to prop up / fix the fence, washing the car, ect.

That said, omg it is so nice out, I'm going back outside now to just sit on the front steps and enjoy being able to do that without a coat on (and not find myself freezing to death).

In better / lighter topics: These two posts on my FB wall (both from Cinema Blend) made my day:

Warner Bros. To Make Their Own Wyatt Earp Movie, Wild Guns
It's the early 90s all over again.

There is time travel involved.
seriousmoonlight: bookshelf with books, and the text bookworm (bookworm)
I fell asleep at 8:30 last night. Slept right through to 12' (I was on the couch). Then went to bed, and slept until 8:00 this morning. Booo.

Anyways, time for a random ... Book Interlude!

Or in which I bemoan the number of books I wanna read )

seriousmoonlight: (whoa;)
I don't know if love or hate this couch. This is the second time I've been all "Oh I'm just going to sit here and watch a movie--" and then BAM. FAST ASLEEP. I wake up like over an hour later, and the dogs migrated from her bed to the couch, and I slept through half the movie.

(Ripley is not allowed on the couch - or on any thing that is not my bed. This does not stop her from trying to sit on my lap when I'm sitting in one of the chairs though. Also my dad lets her on all the furniture and thinks he's being sly about it, so its like a losing battle here.)

Vacation is wonderful.
seriousmoonlight: (team ups;)
It is rainy and gross out. All I want to do is go back to bed, but alas. I have to do things, like ... clean and go to the grocery store, go to the vet to get Ripley her food, file my taxes, and get ready for my co-workers surprise birthday party tonight. Naturally since I have so much to do, all I want to do is watch movies (The Beast Must Die! and Darkman) or play some video games.

And all I have done so far today is read, and watch YouTube videos. Sigh.

And it's kinda Castle-esque but OMG PEOPLE. VICTOR GARBER ON REPUBLIC OF DOYLE. Am counting down to Wednesday.


Instead of doing all I have to do, I'm so going to go re-watch The Pen Is Mightier Than the Doyle.

I need Doyle icons.
seriousmoonlight: (bad girls have all the fun)
I'm having some shortness of breath, probably because I can't breathe through my nose. I feel pretty miserable and probably should have stayed at home, but alas. I also stayed up late watching The Oscars (crashed out on the couch with a blanket and a kleenex) so I think part of his my own doing, So I'm at work, and thinking that I'm going to have to pass on Chuck tonight, and DVR it for watching some time later in the week. (I just don't see me making it to 10' which is when the show ends my time.)

Consumerisim under the cut! )

To Do

Feb. 22nd, 2011 10:42 pm
seriousmoonlight: (bunny ears!) says I'm a Kinda Dorky Nerd God.  Click here to take the Nerd Test, get nerdy images and jokes, and write on the nerd forum!

So the truth comes out at last ;)

Am looking forward to having the next two days off work (woo!) and hope to make a dent in my reading list/reading pile o books. I also plan on going through the the three boxes of books in the spare room and do some serious letting go. I love books, I have a book addiction but I have run out of room, and I need to acknowledge that I don't need a lot of the books I have.

Also, since I can't find a lot of my DVD's I'm also going to sort out those.

So yes, days off work = days of epic cleaning. Or possibly binging on TV. Sometimes I make epic plans and just ... run out of steam.
seriousmoonlight: (oh my gosh Becky ...)
I am getting my hair cut (and coloured!) today, and perhaps this time I will take decent pictures! Maybe. I'm kind of allergic to having decent pictures taken of me :P. I hope (oh god I hope) that triming up the hair, and getting the highlights put back in, will help perk me up. This winter (as I have mentioned) is dragging me dooowwwn.

Also: thank god they call and remind me a day before my apt. I had the apt written in my Blackberry as next Wednesday, and was planing accordingly. Whoops. I swear, the more attempts I make to make myself more organized (ie: putting apts into my Blackberry) the more disorganized I get.

And to jump topics ... the whole hair cutting and colouring process can be a timely one (I won't bore you with all the details but it invovles dying my hair one shade, then bleaching part of it out, and then colouring over the bleached portions) I'm hoping that I get home in time for Survivor tonight. Because oh yes, I am not one, but two Survivor pools.

I've got Julie Wolfe in the work pool, and Steve Wright in the neighborhood pool. So that's two people on the same tribe, booo.

Oh well. I'll be glued to the show until my people get outsted, then I tend to lose a bit of interest. (Or so says previous Survivor years).

EDIT: WELL. I guess I'll be buying Marvel comics on a monthly basis again in May. At least for eight issues.
seriousmoonlight: (epic awesomeness)

Tickets for U2 Purchased!

I told the person I'm going with; "We are in green, we can stand RIGHT THERE IN CIRCLE OF THE STAGE IF WE GET THERE EARLY ENOUGH!" and they were all; "Remember how you freak out in crowds?" and I was all "whatevers, we can sit on the hill, and party up there."
seriousmoonlight: (my first comic heroine)
So we got a notice from NS power that we are to experience a power outage at 2:30 AM tomorrow (Friday). This of course means my alarm is going to go on the fritz (I don't have battery back up, my bad). So I've set my Blackberry to be my alarm.

My wake up for tomorrow?

The Ghostbusters theme. I'm such a dork.
seriousmoonlight: (eps;)
I kind of want this T-shirt. And I kind of want to re-read Frankenstein.

There are not enough hours in the day for all the things I want to do, damnit.

Random aside: Whenever I start to get all "i need more time to read!" I think about that Twilight Zone episode with the atomic bomb [I think] and the guy who survives it and now has all the time to read but [spoiler alert!] breaks his glasses. That really, really, really upset me as a kid. To the point I remember rationalizing to myself that he could find new reading glasses [somehow] and be okay. To this day I get a bit agitated thinking about it -- which I guess is the intention of the show. Bravo Twilight Zone. Bravo.

One of the other things that haunts me from my childhood [besides the fear that someday I'm gong to open my fridge and find a zigurat in there] was this episode of [I think] Tales From The Crypt in which a guy gets buried up to his neck in sand on the beach, and then is left there to die/drown as the tide comes in. Then he comes back as a zombie-ish thing ... in my head I see him walking down a hall with seaweed hanging off him. I have no idea if this is from the show, or just something my brain has come up with. Either way I still think about it and go; "Arugh!"

You know from a very early age I've loved the idea of being scared. I like scary movies, scary books, ect. I don't like the aftermath all that much [it really is no fun to lie there at night thinking; "Well I'm freezing but I'm not reaching down to the floor to grab the covers I've kicked off" after watching Paranormal Activity] or when I have nightmares [like last night!] about being trapped at work because of zombies [honestly: I think that dream was more about work stress then the zombies.].
seriousmoonlight: (come from the land of ice and snow)
First up: The snow! Which the city is calling a Snow Event which amuses me.

From The CBC )

Second up: Books!

I finished Fledgling yesterday, and before I start back in on Elfland (and wrap up my book club reading) I am reading Feed by Mira Grant. And I am loving it. So much. [profile] foxe139 and [profile] rose_145 I am going to lend it to you next time I see you guys....

But come on, how can you not love a book that starts out with:

"Our story opens where countless stories have ended in the last twenty-six years: with an idiot - in this case, my brother Shuan - deciding it would be a good idea to go out and poke a zombie with a stick to see what happens. As if we didn't already know what happens yu you mess with a zombie: The zombie turns around and bites you, and you become the thing you poked."
seriousmoonlight: (party is the name of the game)
I am really excited!

My Life )
seriousmoonlight: (meh kind of day)
I don't know what my deal with Nibs are, but man. It is like eating tiny pieces of rubber -- and yet everytime I go to the movies I'm all "NIBS!" and then after the movie I'm all "OMG NIBS BELLY" and feel sick, and awful. It's like ... I think this time it will be different. But it never is.
