Ah, three day weekend

A solemn and dignified Memorial Day to all.

The other day coming home from work they played a lovely a cappella version of "The Star Spangled Banner" on the radio to welcome in the Memorial Day weekend, and instead of that warm surge of pride I used to get when hearing the National Anthem, I started to cry a little. Curse Bush to the end of time. Enough of that.

Last night we watched the end of Season 1 of FarScape, and, oh joy!, we had on hand the first disc of Season 2. But it was cracked!!! I have to ship it back to NetFlix unwatched, but I have already reported the damage, so hopefully we'll have the start of Season 2 by Wednesday. I feel for those who had to actually wait a whole summer between 1 and 2. Yikes!

Today was a quiet day. I would have liked to have slept in somewhat longer, but the cats decided it was high time I get up and came in to dance on me until I got out of bed. I did some dishes and sort of got the kitchen cleaned, then we played Baldur's Gate for a while before rahirah had to get back to work on 3D.


You Are The Key Character
"It's what I was meant to do."

You are the true enigma. No one knows much about you, you do not understand much of yourself, and your life seems to carry no purpose. Yet regardless of everything around you - everyone knows that you are here for some reason, even if no one yet knows what that is. Things seem to simply fall into place for you. Almost as though some force is working either through you, for you, or around you. No matter your troubles, you have been sent here to unlock something. This is your destiny.

Which Classic Story Role Do You Play?

Maybe it's because I'm such a dilettante. Me? Have focus?

And between 2 and 3, 3 and 4, and 4 and the mini. I'm grateful I only had the last to drive me crazy. The end of S3 broke (still breaks, every time I see it) my heart.

So I've heard. This was the first of 'em we sat through, and I was sobbing my eyes out (I cry at card tricks), so I know any of those others I've heard described are going to knock me flat.

I was in agony when I took the disc for season 2 out of the sleeve and saw the crack. I prayed as I put it in the machine, but the player wouldn't read it. {big, heavy sigh}

I think "Farscape" did cliffhangers - and paid them off - better than any other show I can think of.

Good luck getting a new S2 disc soon.

What if I don't have the energy to be either solemn or dignified?

Guess you're gonna have to be wacky, then. :D
