I'm so glad I didn't see the promo for tonight's Lie to Me until just now.

I would have been freaking out ALL week.

Check it out

Stargate Open is all about inspiring your muse, not winning a challenge.

For one month we'll focus on one episode of either SG-1 or Atlantis;
anything you want to post that relates to that episode is fair game.
Icons, fanfiction, thoughts, theories, picspams... whatever you want!

The month of May is the SG-1 episode 'Grace'

Updated my profile.  I might actually be motivated in the future to add some favorite quotes to it.

I also found a cool twitter background and color scheme. Link is now in my profile.

In other news I've started watching Legend of the Seeker.  It's super pretty and has a pairing that can't get together but at least they talk about it.

If you too want to see the pretty, all of the episodes are on hulu.  (must be in U.S.)

So a couple weeks ago my dad decided he wanted to use his Christmas money to get the family a Wii.  We've got WiiSports, WiiPlay, MarioKart, some sort of outdoor adventure that uses a pad to jump around on, and we borrowed Rayman Raving Rabbids from my cousins.

I'll edit this post with our Wii friend code later when I get home.

19. What states or other places do you wish to visit in 2009?
I really want to take a road trip through Washington, making stops in Seattle (science fiction museum!), Forks (this is optional but would be so awesome to be able to say to other fans), and up into Canada preferably to go to gatecon.  Is this going to happen?  Probably not.

New layout from [livejournal.com profile] thefulcrum 

Now I'm contemplating going either to Basic or Paid account because the ads are atrocious.   The larger quantity of user pics is very appealing.
holdmyheart: ([ncis] kate 'call of silence')
As Valentines Day approaches I find myself with feelings, emotions and opinions that I want to share, probably more accurately is that I need to get off my chest some things, even if no one cares/reads it.

I have always been a firm believer, that while Valentines Day is a fine holiday; you shouldn't need a "special" day to do something nice for the person you love.  However, I in no way feel like I can preach this or even back it up because I've never had anyone to do something 'special' for me.  In fact i've never had a "special" person do anything 'special' for me on any day regardless of the holiday or lack thereof.

I'm 19 years old, going to college and I've never had a boyfriend, been on a date, or even been asked out.  Which is not great for the self esteem.  I don't want to be the initiator.

Right before Christmas we got a boat load of snow and were stuck at home for a couple weeks.  The only times I ventured out of the house were to take pictures.

All my life I've never really liked my name. 


There's no good, likable way to shorten it although people try and even though I have always felt this way I've never done anything about it.  People continue to try and shorten it, (Kel, Kels[which if you have to shorten it this one is the lesser of two evils]) as well as just saying it incorrectly, Chelsea being the most common mistake.

I know at least 6 Kelsey's/Chelsea's off the top of my head.  We may not all spell it the same but it sounds the same(except for Chelsea).

I've also noticed that students and teachers alike might remember me but they rarely remember my name from week to week.  I've been called Ashley, Stephanie, Caitlyn, etc.

For years I've played around with going by my middle name, Nicole.  I don't know many Nicole's. 

It's french and actually has a "meaningful" meaning.  'Victory of the people' as opposed to 'from ceol's island'.

There are at least three valid nicknames for Nicole, [Nic, Nikki, Cole]

Next term I'm thinking about going by Nicole.  On that first day in class when the teacher is going through attendence and they ask if you want to be called something different that what's on the paper; I'm going to say, "I go by Nicole."

Don't even get me started on my out of date username.  Anybody have ideas for me for a new username?

Top 10 Worst Stargate SG-1 Episodes by Kelsey and Hannah

1. Icon [If you’ve seen this episode you don’t need an explanation.]
2. Ethon [Since this is a follow up to Icon you understand why it’s here.]
3. Torment of Tantalus [BAD we don’t understand what the writers see in this episode but there are certainly better season 1 episodes than this.]
4. The Scourge [Bugs, bad bugs, lots of bad bugs that were borrowed from the Mummy.]
5. A Hundred Days [Kelsey’s “favorite” episode. I can’t watch this episode without cringing to the point that I look like I’m having a seizure.]
6. Season 1 [Not all of season 1 just well…. most of it.]
7. The Warrior [ Jaffa, Teal’c, Jaffa honor, just lots of Jaffa. ]
8. Disclosure [Boring clip show, with the exception of one scene at the end where Thor embarrasses Kinsey.]
9. Politics [Kinsey and Samuels in the same room for a clip show.]
10. Inauguration [Once again, Kinsey in a clip show trying to shut down the SGC blah blah blah.]

Runners Up
Past and Present [Follow up to Prisoners, another questionable episode, that is just a little more wacked than it’s predecessor.]
Unnatural Selection [Hannah’s “favorite” episode, only redeemed by ONE good scene.]
Threshold [Teal’c, brainwashed, being un-brainwashed. Yeah]
Pretense [A claim or accusation not supported by fact. Just plain not good.]
Orpheus [Jaffa, lots of Jaffa]
Fallout [Jonas and his “girlfriend” have matching haircuts. Sad but true.]

There you have it. Some of the episodes that after seeing once or twice we decided didn't deserve to be viewed by our eyes again.

But that's just us.

1. Window of Opportunity [it just is okay.]
2. 1969 [time travel, hippies, Woodstock, going to the moon, skywalker, luke skywalker, captain kirk, what more could a girl ask for.]
3. Wormhole X-Treme!!! [Martin, Murray, Dr. Lavant: Damn it, Colonel, just because they're aliens and their skulls are transparent doesn't mean that they don't have rights!]
4. The Other Guys [How can you call yourself a scientist and not worship at the alter of Roddenberry!]
5. Urgo [blue jello…. And pie]
6. Foothold [Sam: Maybourne, you are an idiot, every day of the week! Why couldn't you have just taken one day off?!]
7. Crystal Skull [Now we wait for the giant aliens…. That just has a nice ring to it.]
8. Moebius part 1 & 2 [time travel, good excuse for Sam/Jack kiss, dorky!Sam and dorky!Daniel]
9. Fragile Balance [mini!Jack]
10. Ripple Effect [Janet, Martouf, blue jello lots of blue jello]

Runners Up
The Ties That Bind [Vala]
Upgrades [diet coke]
Nightwalkers [toast and the lollipop plus Sam smacks Jonas]
Bad Guys [Daniel attempting to sound like a “bad” guy over the radio…. Yeah]
Threads [monumental episode, Sam breaks up with Pete yay, Jacob dies boo!]

So these are the best of the best in our book. We've watched these episodes multiple times and still like them.

But that's just us. =P
