Hot well written

We're going to see Star Trek---FINALLY!!!

Fandango tickets confirmed for 105PM at the Metreon.


Happy Pink Saturday! It looks like we're having good weather, so all the folks who've come into town for Pride can be out in the street and appreciate the glory of our beautiful city. I hope it holds for tomorrow. I won't be out for the parade itself, but it can either be miserably cold or miserably hot, neither of which is generally conducive to a happy, healthy pride celebration.

I'll be at the Mint in the afternoon to party with all the celebrants and take note of how many Michael Jackson do or do not get sung.


Did anyone watch Countdown last night? There was no Rachel Maddow show and therefore no Ana Marie hosting the Rachel Maddow show, but Keith was on, doing a lot of Michael, but also back to crucifying Mark Sanford, Coultergeist and the wench down in Missouri.

Keith had an interview with Deepak Chopra talking about Michael ("he was like a brother and I loved him.") but mostly about the whole Hollywood culture of providing drugs to celebrities etc etc. Keith seemed way more upset about this than I would have thought, only because it's not like this is a big surprise. Then he seemed pretty giddy when the show got back to "normal" Coundtdown stuff, including the five legged puppy, and the chance to trash all the potential Republican nominees. (Sanders, Gingrich, Palin, Jindal, etc etc.)


OK, the big reveal...after the first season of Buffy, my ship is.....(drum-roll please).............Giles/Angel. (That scene where Angel showed up at the library....mmmrrrrrow.) I'm thinking this is a mixture of "shipping the pretty" along with my prejudice for "grown-ups," plus the obvious tension in their positions, and the sheer unlikeliness of anything happening, "canon" or otherwise.

I'm still futzing around with chapter 5 of my novel and I'd been having trouble "hearing" one of the character's voices because I haven't seen the person I based the character on for quite awhile. But I've had a bit of an epiphany that this character can also sound like Fornell, so now things can proceed. Except I'm caught up in the mental writing of the last real!Jack fic I'm going to post next Sunday before the LJ vacation and the CA&C, however that's a ficlet and I'll probably just get it down in my notebook when I'm at the Mint tomorrow.

You could buy me diamonds
You could buy me pearls
Take me on a cruise around the world
Baby, you know I'm worth it.

Well, now we know which sex the finch is.

Some small, white things, which we first thought were stones have appeared in the cage. Only they're not stones. Birdie has been alone for over a year, since the others died (and we definitely suspect --ahem-- foul play) so it's not like there's going to be baby finches, but at least we know it's a girl.

But I'm kind of freaked out wondering if she's going to be expecting baby finches that aren't going to be happening. I don't see her building a nest or anything, but I'm always worried about what animals in my care are thinking.

At least with a puppy, you pretty much know what's on its mind, right?
