house, bones, SG1, and some general ranting

the first time I took the test, I was Einstein. how did I go from Einstein to HILTER? I totally want Einstein.
made my brother take the test though. it said he enjoyed power because it increased his sexual opportunities.... >.> in other words, he was JFK.
so, I am that much closer to moving back into my old room. my closet is now totally organized (ya know, in my messy only-I-can-understand-my-logic-and-find-anything kind of way). I moved my computer in (and am now typing this on it, sitting in front of the window, on the floor... I like this much better without a desk), and even after I move my old bed back in, I'm going to have a fairly good amount of space, the way it's set up. I even have my lucky yoga mat, so my relaxation shall not be disturbed by the fact I'm too terrified by what I might be lying/sitting on on the floor. (which does need to be vaccuumed, as some of the meal from the mealworms spilled. luckily the case was empty)
Stargate: SG1 - Okay, I admit it. I only recently discovered Stargate mondays. But who cares. tonight's episodes ROCKED. Totally loving the Carter/O'Neal action in 'Beneath the Surface'. It has inspired me... to find some good fanfiction online somewhere, and if all else fails, write some myself.
I have to say, I never had Michael Shanks figured for that good of a actor, but when he was switching between personalities, it turned out I was very wrong; and while I still refuse to accept Michael Shanks as a better Daniel Jackson than the original from the movie (the oh so beautiful James Spader), he moved up two notches on my list. Also improved is Teal'c, played by the brilliant Christopher Judge... if his ability to keep that one specific look ever fails, you can always count on a change in hair color in the next season! or, you know, a beard.
I will say though, Richard Dean Anderson is much better than Kurt Russel in every way. Okay, I know, his... >.> girlfriend/wife/domestic partner-type woman just had a child and he wants to take time off and spend time raising his kids (like every good father), Stargate is just not the same without him, and there is no way Ben Browder (loved him in Farscape, not so much as Mitchell on SG1) can ever fill his shoes.
I'll also mention I miss Janet Fraiser and General Hammond
"I keep remembering this guy. He's bald and wears a short sleeve short, and he's really important to me. I think his name is Homer..."
Okay, enough Stargate babbling. It's official, I've gone from casual-don't-really-care-to-catch-it to completely-obsessed-and-will-become-a-fanfiction-fiend. Moving on...
WHOSE BRIGHT IDEA WAS IT TO BUMP HOUSE FOR A FULL THREE WEEKS FOR AMERICAN IDOL? because whoever it was, should be FIRED. the erratic time changes for the Fox hits is stupid, and a bad move. Is anyone even still watching Simon? ISN'T HE DEAD YET?
Last Tuesday's was, as usual, awesome. House's character evolution continues to be amzing. Slow, and very subtle, but masked by sarcasm with a hint of a humor. Actually, the humor's in the sarcasm. In any case, I'm still a firm believer that Stacy belonged with Mark (simply because he was willing to beg House for help and set his physical therapy back three months to be with her; how many men exist in today's world who're willing to do such a thing? that alone completely disqualifies House. I mean, I love him, but face it: Stacy and House were never going to end up together), and I'm starting to see very subtle hints of Cameron/House within each case - though the brilliant writers never let up on the mystery of each case and will always have another twist to keep you on the edge of your seat.
I have to say, it was perfect justice what happened to Wilson.
He's had how many wives? That many divorces... and with marriage he has how many affairs? Come on, we've seen it during season 1. Finally, as he's going to talk to his wife, he discovers, she's having an affair... and is kicking him out.
Maybe next time he gets married, if they decide to write that in, he won't be so stupid to screw it up by sleeping with someone else. At least, I hope. I refuse to put that much faith in anyone, let alone a television character... but it would certainly be nice.
So, now, Wilson is bunking with House. Which leaves much to play with in future episodes. I'm dying until the new one.
Okay, one last rant. ^.^ Since I got started on Stargate, I figured I would go all out. Last, we have Bones, based on Kathy somebody-or-other, a real life forensic anthropologist. I was so mad on the forums for the show. Nobody liked Emily Deschanel, but they all loved David Boreanez. I'm sorry, Angel was good, but he was far too... brooding. I don't get all the hype that continues over Buffy and Angel. actually, angel I can understand. Buffy died like... three times during the show. Can she ever STAY dead? the beginning was awesome. I was addicted. After she died, had been replaced by Buffy bot, but brought back from her eternal slumber in heaven by Willow (who just COULDN'T leave her dead), it was still good. But when they brought in all those other slayers....
I'm off-topic. Anyway, Emily Deschanel was the perfect choice for Bones. Last Wednesday involed a plane crash of politicians. Upon finding the body of a passenger who wasn't supposed to be on the flight, it becomes their top priority. Until Bones finds three small bone fragments that didn't come the plane crash victims on the sight.
Having been deprived of Booth for a few weeks, she calls him first. Of course, it's got to be a murder, right? Funny dialogue of how Bones missed him, etc. etc. yadda yadda yadda....
Anyway, I love how the jealousy is just so completely obvious when a man (who specializes in missing persons cases) shows up claiming the bones are probably from his missing father. Perfect for Bones, seeing as her whole problem is that she's cut herself off from society and human emotions since her parents mysteriously vanished as a child, and her older brother left to work, leaving her in the foster care system. (see previous episode for full story)... right?
Okay, so there's... something between her and this one-shot character, but he is a one-shot character, and the writers are obviously putting a lot of effort into setting up a Booth/Bones relationship, so the odds of anything happening are... none. Which is pretty much what happens.
Overall, Emily Deschanel... not too bad. David Boreanez.... best I've seen him yet. Hugh Laurie......... absolutely brilliant (and the winner of an emmy, so a big congrats to him)
...I've bored you guys enough. I shall leave now....
but seriously, whoever decided to put on American Idol instead of House should be fired. and the people responsible for hiring him should be fired as well.... just for good measure
I feel dirty

music: breaking benjamin - break my fall
some strange song by yellowcard is playing on the boombox. I'm too lazy to look it up. I feel like a vegetable.
through my human physiology course, I've read about three harlequin novels worth of material specifically about the external organs involved in reproduction.
I feel dirty....
anyway, happily, I'm finally through all that stupid stuff. took my last exam today! YAY! Got an 87%. Not so yay. I hate Bs. I don't understand half of the questions they ask most of the time. Twice they've asked two questions about things they haven't even mentioned once, and I lost points for a diagram that I got RIGHT. I triple checked the darn thing.
ugh. just two weeks. that's all I have left. two weeks to study for the final, then it's all over. it'll end up being a B, if I can memorize the charts. that's a passing grade. I'll hate myself for it, but I'll live with it.
Did I mention I hate BYU? I think we should burn it in effigy. (any ideas on how we could accomplish that, btw?)
so Ryan hasn't been on, which is driving me nuts. he's probably off somewhere laughing about how it's driving me nuts, knowing him.
Shana hasn't been on either, which makes me really.... something. the only good friend I've mananged to make AND keep through-out moving and complaining about church all the time, and freaking out more times than I care to mention, and I haven't said a single word to her since new years. damn. I really screwed that one up. worst thing is, I'm not entirely sure I wanted go to back. how do you tell your best friend that?
ignore me. I'm just being a little self-absorbed.
crush??? god, I hope not

I'm bored and procrastinating, thus, I'm making a new post. ^.^
I've been busy today. I've decided to try and enter lucias-stock's latest competition "Sea and Sky". So I've been working on that.
Plus the weather's been nasty, so we've been inside all day long. I've been blasting music up in my soon-to-be OLD room (thank god, I'm moving back into my original room and will never have to sleep another night in here soon!).
Hopefully I can get a new bed soon. I want to go back to my original room very, VERY much.
so, I talked to Evan.... ^.^ He's going kinda nutty. Sent me a message about Daria saying that his birthday is coming up soon (hinthint). That, of course, means that he wants a copy. Which I'm totally okay with. The thing is... I can't send it through the mail, because then all those annoying people I'm related to will find out, and I'm really not in the mood to endure endless teasing - as I know, they will do. Mother dearest already has this crazy idea that I have a crush on him, which is completely, completely insane.
I don't have a crush on him.
I mean sure, he's nice, he's funny, he's an anime/daria freak (always a plus), and yes, he's cute.
BUT, he lives in Franklin. A few towns over. He has a girlfriend. We only talk on rare occasions. and..... he lives in an entirely different world.
you know.... school, lots of friends, etc, etc, etc.
Having a crush on him would be like.... I dunno. Betrayl or something. I mean, everything that I have come to believe and experienced completely objects to anything beyond friendship; that I just.... don't want to end up getting married during college and dropping out and being the mother of three children, ending up divorced and raising them on my own.
I just don't see myself ever finding love or marital bliss. I don't want to end up like my mom.
so anyway.... I have a new manipulation out.
go look at it!!!
Fairies by the Fountain or Fairies for short. A bit small, but I think it came out really well. And hopefully, I can get something good done for that challenge. SO CHECK THAT OUT AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!

Let's sing the doom song!
..okay, so I did that yesterday, but who cares?
After my throwing up-ness passed (a lost lung and a carpet cleaning later), I went downstairs for a nice, calm viewing of ZIM! Because Zim makes everything better... not so much Zim as Gir, but still... you get my drift.
So, we leave for Atlanta tomorrow. So not exciting. We'll be running around all day today. I'm getting my mom up in two hours so we can start by running to the bank (and getting a very large caffeine-filled soda, seeing as she won't let me drink coffee... grrness... I'm really craving that lately!), then I'm sure we're coming back here. I have cleaning duty, so the entire downstairs is MY responsability (including cat liter, dishes, trash duty, vaccuuming, etc.). After that, we run back out around noon to get to mom's eye appointment (she's getting glasses once and for all... god, this family's eye sight sucks), and that's probably when we'll do the last of our running; unless something terribly important comes up.
It's okay, Kate. Think happy thoughts. HAPPY THOUGHTS! (I don't have any damned happy thoughts! -.- )
So I got my thing to ksenya in! WOOT! I'm on a roll! (also, what exactly does WOOT mean, anyhow?)
I'm also hungry. Grr.... shit, we still need someone to look after the cats & Mnementh.
ANYBODY IN NEED OF A JOB?

And so life continues in a downwards spiral of misery and despair.
...okay, that's a horrible lie. I just like to say the phrase.
So, here's what is currently happening in my life...
I have to clean today because on Tuesday, we LEAVE FOR ATLANTA. Yay... ish? ness... so yeah, not so excited about the cleaning thing.
In other news, the heart stuff is off the table. Now I get to study the male reproductive system. GO ME, right? It even includes some wonderful line art. I'm so (not) excited! (I'm faking enthusiasm for my mom, here... she still holds to that 'you keep saying that now, but somebody I know you'll want kids, and then you'll have to know' theory. god. sometimes moms just suck)
The website-ness is going well, btw.
and... oh, my eyes! Let me tell you this long, boring story.
So, exactly a year ago, we went to a nice doctor to see about my eyes, and she suggested contacts. Not only was I unbelievably happy to be away from the burden of glasses for a while, she said that because contacts actually rest on your eyes, they give them a break and can help keep your eyes from getting worse.
I went in to get a new prescription for my glasses (because I lost them), and granted they're not terrible, but when I picked up the new pair and put them on, it was a VERY different one, way more intense really. on top of that, it took my eyes a lot of getting used to, which hasn't happened since I first got glasses when I was eight.
but here's the kicker! apparently, because my eyes haven't been getting enough oxygen from the contacts, tiny blood vessels have actually started to grow into my cornea.
so, today's lesson:
I have an appointment to see about hard contacts (which WILL keep my eyes from getting worse, because they hold the cornea's shape, instead of the soft ones where it's made to be flexible and such), and I have a super strong set of glasses which, as I type, are giving me a bit of a headache.
