Hi everyone

I am sure everyone has seen this already, but:
McKay/Sheppard Fan Awards, 2007
are open for voting.

Click the pic, and head on over to vote for your favourites! There are fantastic stories nominated this year, and even if you consider it for absolutely nothing else, you could certainly consider it a great recs list. :)

Don't you all just love how I say "August Update", like I've secretly been updating all along?

Yeah. I suck.

So - Friday, I should be quitting my job.

This, naturally enough, is pretty scary. I'm doing it so that I will spend the time I should be spending on building my two companies, but in doing so I'm giving up a regular paycheque and my safety net.

But you know - I look at the folks who are my age, who a few short years ago were at the same level work wise as I was. Those people are now a job grade or more ahead of me, and I don't really understand why that is. Sure, they're good people, but not *better*.

Of course, what it boils down to is : those people either took opportunities that presented themselves, OR made their own opportunities.

Well, hell. I can do that.

It may be scary, but that's no reason to not do it, right?

Wish me luck!

Though I am pleased he won.


A (mostly) sad day for human rights in the United States )

What does it take for the general populace to understand that this isn't about 'gay' rights, or 'women's rights. It's about HUMAN RIGHTS, and I find it unfathomable that there is still argument about whether all people qualify.

I have never been so happy to be Canadian as I am today.

Bold all of the following TV shows which you've ever seen 3 or more episodes of in your lifetime. Bold and Italicize a show if you're positive you've seen every episode of it. If you want, add up to 3 additional shows (keep the list in alphabetical order).

I watch WAY too much television.

After the EPIC FAIL that was yesterday, the trip into Toronto today went quite smoothly. I accidentally turned onto the wrong street (that will be the right street tomorrow) but turned around and even found parking without a big deal. One small asthma attack (damned steps) later, I was heading in to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

FanExpo rocks!! )

Simple meme -- answer the questions, pass it on or pick it up.

Wow. See? Now I feel like I've gotten a week's worth of rants off my chest! Awesome.

A) People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

B) Tag eight people to do this quiz and those who are tagged cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by and cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by. Continue this game by sending it to other people.
[Inf] Yeah, uh. No. However, anyone who wants to post answers, have fun.

"The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed."
1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them


The List )

Name 5 characters you didn't like at first, but eventually learned to love.

Well, now... I'm usually pretty consistent in who I hate. More often a character will start out ok and then will slowly grow OFF me (like Logan (DA)). So this might take some thinking.

1. Saul Tigh, Battlestar Galactica
2. D'Anna, Battlestar Galactica
3. Krycek, X-Files
4. Amanda, Highlander
5. Worth, Cube

Happy Friday the 13th!

What are the five most outrageous misuses of science in science fiction?

1. Armageddon. Like, all of it. (still fun to watch, though)
2. SGA, "Adrift", when they blow up the asteroid at the base of the tower... and there is NO DAMAGE. In vaccuum. *shakes head*
3. AHA! Independence Day; the computer virus. Just... DUDE.
4. Warp Speed. (Aside - nevertheless, I *love* warp speed.)
5. How they always make explosions in space have noise.

Name your five favorite fictional apocalypses (or near misses).

1. The destruction of the 12 Colonies [Battlestar Galactica new series]
2. Judgement day [Terminator]
3. The apocalypse [Road Warrior]
4. The creation of the Reivers [Firefly]
5. The biblical apocalypse [The Seventh Sign]

There are so many more I totally love! Hard to choose.

I'm a mild synaesthene. Which is rocking cool and much more entertaining than being a dermatograph, though less noticeable all in all.

What it means (if anyone doesn't already know) is that I experience certain things with senses that usually don't have involvement in . For example, words have taste to me. Not taste as in actual physical drool-inducing taste, so not like a hallucination, but instead in a very visceral, fundamental way that it is extremely difficult to describe. I've always liked Russian because it *tastes good* when I speak it. It's especially applicable for me with names, and it is related to the way things are spelled. The smallest change in spelling (and in the way my tongue moves when I pronounce a word) can completely change the taste.

Neil, for example, tastes kind of icky. Unpleasant when I say it. But Niall (which sounds pretty much indistinguishable) actually is pretty tasty. The word "orientate" is so unpleasant for me to say that I refuse to acknowledge it as an actual word. "Corollary" is tolerable only when pronounced "core-all-ary"... people who pronounce it "coral-airy" in my hearing are taking their lives in their hands.

Other neat things are - people / personalities in my brain have distinct weights and densities that have nothing at all to do with their physical attributes. People also have distinct colours if I take the time to think about it. Strangely, their colours do not match their weights. Like - I know at least one yellow who is a very dense personality, and I would have thought a dark colour for that.

So, yeah. weird, and all.

So - why mention this randomly now?

Well - last week, I was driving my little girl to school, and I had the radio going, and our conversation went something like this:

"Mommy?"

"Yes?"

"This song?"

"Yes?"

"What colour is it?"

"..." *thinks* "Can you repeat that?"

"What colour is this song?"

*Thinks some more* "You know, it sounds orange to me. What do you think?"

"I think it's yellow." She went back to her book. Since then we've discussed the colour of all sorts of songs.

Now... How freaking COOL is that??

Hey everyone

I've signed up for [livejournal.com profile] kink_bingo and was curious if there are any pairings (or more-ings) anyone would particularly like to see?

Such fun!

If anyone requests a particular grouping I'll make sure they're notified when I post.

Cheers
