I thought I'd do that meme thing where you post pictures for seven days of what you made for dinner and the preparation. So, here goes; tonight I made Mr. Bojangles, which is the Crazy Plates ladies' way of saying bowtie pasta with chicken, sundried tomatoes and broccoli. It's my favourite dinner (and [livejournal.com profile] heartsways' too, once I made it for her) and there's a great farmer's market on Saturdays where I can get the proper sundried tomatoes so I can make it whenever I want.

The preparation.

come on, you know you want to click )

Paying forward from [livejournal.com profile] alaskhah

Pay It Forward: I will send a small gift to the first 10 people who leave a comment here on my LJ.

I don’t yet know what that gift will be - it could be anything: cloth, metal, paper, wood, a crystal, jewellery, silk painting, a story anything goes - but you will receive it within 365 days.

The only thing you have to do in return is "pay it forward" by making a similar agreement on your blog.

Ha! The Grey's Anatomy official site has been revamped and they've updated the personality quiz. I did it, hoping that this time I wouldn't get Meredith (Little Brother mocked me mercilessly for that one). And low and behold, who did I get but my favourite character!

ooh, clicky )

Also, we went to the zoo again today. These memberships were one of the best presents I've ever had. Every time I've gone I've seen something I've never seen before. When we went in the winter it had just snowed and we saw the Siberian tigers wrestling and frolicking in the snow. I patted sting-rays last time. We've seen tons of things because we just go for a few hours at different times in day through the year. It's fun.

This time we were in the Aussie Walkabout (where you walk this little path and you're actually in the enclose and unseparated from the emus, wallabies and kangaroos) and all the kangaroos started going nuts and jumping around at the birds. I got several videos of them hopping around. Ooh, and the Macaques were entertaining themselves by chasing each other then surprising all the spectators by throwing themselves and the glass. It was pretty funny.

Yay! I am back in Toronto after a very long drive. Why must Canada be so big, I ask you? It takes forever just to get out of the province. Anyway, Quebec City was delightful. 2008 is the city's 400th birthday so there were all sorts of decorations up and they were doing a massive cleaning of the Chateau Frontenac. I'll do a big post with pictures once I upload the pictures of Little Brother's camera.

But for now, the Seven Things meme that's been floating about:

I have spent FAR too many hours at the library in the past couple of days. To the point that I feel weird when I'm not looking at obscenely tiny type in periodical indexes or photocopying. Also, microfilm/fiche is the DEVIL! So annoying and not great for actually finding things! DAMN YOU, PRIMARY SOURCES!

Anyway, because I just spent three hours at the library (I would have spent more but the stupid university library closes at 5) I'm watching The West Wing and going to do a tv meme I zoinked from [livejournal.com profile] illusory_thrill

television meme )

thoughts on recent SGA episodes )

And on the gay front, I downloaded a copy of Loving Annabelle and I highly recommend it to everyone. It's very short and could have used a little bit more plot in places but the lead actresses are very talented and have fantastic chemistry. It ends just like you expect it to but for some reason it's not as depressing as all the other lesbian movies I've been forced to watch against my will. I hate gay cinema 98% of the time for being utter crap but this was quite good although not as good as Imagine Me and You. But that had GILES.

• 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 a lot of televisions )

I'm a little creeped out that I've seen at least three episodes of NINETY SIX different television shows and I've seen every episode of eleven of them. To be fair, most of the ones I have seen every episode of are either new or short (Dead Like Me, Grey's Anatomy) and some I am awful close to but jeez. There's been almost 200 epidodes of SG1, pretty close to that for The X-Files and a whole bunch more than that for ER.

Let's look at this a little differently. I've seen every episode of Stargate SG1 Seasons 1-8, which is - more or less - 132 hours of television. I would say I've watched Seasons 1-5 AT LEAST twice, as well. Having watched through the entire series of Buffy at least twice (I've only seen Season 7 twice), I can categorically say I've watched over 300 hours of that show as well. I need a new life.

Music meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] rangergirl

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your Livejournal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

1. Neighbourhood #1 (Tunnels) - The Arcade Fire
It's so beautiful. I've listened more than a dozen times in the past day I love it so much. Also, everyone, please note how "neighbourhood" is supposed to be spelled. The Arcade Fire is Canadian and so, that is how you should spell it.

2. Crown of Love - The Arcade Fire

3. Take It Easy (Love Nothing) - Bright Eyes
Guh, just guh.

4. We Used to Be Friends - Dandy Warhols
I first heard it because of Veronica Mars but I love the longer version even more. So applicable to my life.

5. Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
I don't know why but I am really just completely in love with The Who this week.

6. There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - The Smiths
Because I'm always always digging Morrissey. And the Sassy Fashion Squirrels but that is another matter entirely.

7. In the Sun - Joseph Arthur
For some reason this song just resonates with me.

Honourable Mentions: Summer of '69, Bryan Adams; Killer Queen, Queen; Road Trippin', Red Hot Chili Peppers; Rebellion (Lies), The Arcade Fire; Under Pressure, David Bowie and Queen.

Meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] wickedlygilmore

Look at your LJ "interests" list. If you have fewer than 50 interests, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five interests, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five interests, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly what it is about these things that interests you so much.

fifteen obsessions: explained )

It's sad because all my favourite interests didn't come up. It would have been way more fun to explain my love of 'wordsex', 'leather corsets', 'boys in glitter', 'feather boas', 'gay hobbits', 'kates', 'ot3!', 'triple crosses' and 'thick rimmed glasses'.
