I've had a the last few days off from work and have pretty much ignored LJ. (I needed to use up some vacation time or lose it.) I spent a lot of it cleaning house, which badly needed it and I feel pretty happy with the results. Still a lot to be done, but a good start made. theamusedone
came to visit on Saturday, and we had a really nice time. Or I did. I hope
he did. :D Somehow it turned into Nostalgia TV Time. Since he'd never seen a Man from UNCLE
episode I showed him "The Strigas Affair," and he was vastly amused by the pre-Star Trek presence of both William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. not to mention Werner Klemperer (Col. Klink!). After that, we went to dinner at the Brasserie 1010, wherein the star of the show was the amazing dessert shared by theamusedone
and my kidunit (a flourless chocolate cake accompanied by bourbon-vanilla ice cream topped with Frangelico wafers that were kind of like hazelnut brittle).
After we got home, I inflicted an episode of U.F.O.
(link goes to pix from it) on him, and then he mentioned he had never seen any Sapphire & Steel
so I got out my boxed-set and showed him the first few chapters of "The Railway Station." Since we didn't have time to watch the entire thing, I ended up sending the set with him (with a warning about the stupid duct-tape and fake-fur 'creature' in "The Creature's Revenge.") Next morning we met ruthless1
for breakfast at the Original House of Pancakes (not to be confused with IHOP) where theamusedone
and I both had a Dutch Baby pancake (which is amazing and yummy), the kidunit had their strawberry Belgian waffle which had about half a pound of strawberries on it, and poor ruthless
, who had a bad cold, fed her cold with a nice traditional eggs & pancakes breakfast. After breakfast theamusedone
left with ruthless
to head to Denver and the Tragicially Hip concert.
Yesterday I mainlined my Space: Above & Beyond
DVDs. God, that show holds up well. It was such a great show and Fox was SO stupid the say they treated it. I am feeling semi-inspired to write a fixit. Which is amazing since I've had writers block going for months now. Maybe I should try and run with this to see if it jumpstarts my Muse.
And here's a bit pf memeage gakked from juliabkWhat does your drawing say about YOU?
The results of your analysis say:
You are driven and ambitious and tend to make radical moves to reach your goals.
You are a direct and forthright person. You like to get to the core of the issue right away, with few signs of hesitation.
You like following the rules and being objective. You are precise and meticulous, and like to evaluate decisions before making them.
You feel morose and are prone to lethargy.
I'm not driven or ambitious at all. The rest though... yeah, sounds like me.
