Pick five of your favorite TV shows in no particular order:

1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
2. Charmed
3. Supernatural
4. Criminal Minds
5. Firefly

1. Who’s your favorite character in 2?
Piper! orrrr Paige. Depends on what season we're talking about...

2. Who’s your least favorite character in 1?
mmm probably Angel.

3. What’s your favorite episode in 3?
Ohhh dear. I have a few. The Benders (1.15), What Is and What Should Never Be (2.20), Bad Day at Black Rock (3.3), and A Very Supernatural Christmas (3.8)

4. What’s your favorite season of 5?
...1. Mostly because it's the ONLY ONE :(

5. What’s your favorite ship in 2?

6. How long have you watched 5?
Um, the first time I watched it was in 2005 & I rewatch it at least once a year. Because it's awesome.

7. How did You become interested in 3?
My little sister's friend Alyssa harassed me until I agreed to borrow the first three seasons & watch them. The only reason I finally agreed was because she was so sick and I wanted to do something to make her happy. She died the summer after. Now whenever I watch SPN it makes me think of her.

8. Who’s your favorite character in 4?
Oh geez. Probablyyyy Garcia. Except I also love Morgan. And Reid. And GIDEON. Favorites are too hard to choose.

9. Which show do you prefer, 1, 2 or 5?
Buffy. Hands down. Pretty much favorite of ALL TIME.

10. Which show have you seen more episodes of, 1 or 3?
1, because SPN's season 3 is shorter than average and the 7th season isn't out on dvd yet. And I'm not even sure I want to watch it.

11. If you could be anyone from 4, who would that be?
Garcia. I would LOVE to be that awesome with computers.

12. How would you kill your favourite character in 2?
I wouldn't?

13. Give a random quote from 3.
Sam: You're bossy. And short.

14. Would a crossover from 3 and 4 work?
I feel like it would certainly have potential. If the FBI got called in on a serial case only it was really a supernatural killer. OH WAIT that does sort of happen in SPN except Henrickson thinks it's S&D doing the killing. Silly man.

15. Pair two characters in 3 that would make an unlikely but okay couple.

16. Overall, which cast do you prefer, 3 or 5?
Ummm. 5. Mostly because I feel like the SPN cast goes downhill after season 5. EXCEPT FOR BOBBY \o/ until he dies.

17. Which has the better music, 2 or 4?
Charmed! I love their soundtrack. It's all indie folky women's music.


I was just fb'ing with my cousin Tory, and we ended up talking about Nana a little bit. I said that Nana had had to sit through Remember the Titans with me, and Tory asked me how Nana had liked it. And I didn't really know how to respond because I know Nana enjoyed watching it, because there were good looking people in it doing interesting things, but she didn't really understand the story and when the commercial comes on she thinks we're watching a different show. And I don't really know how much Tory knows about what's going on with Nana. I mean, before I had experience with it, I didn't really understand Alzheimers. It's not just forgetting things - once it gets bad enough it's forgetting everyghing all the time. She can't remember what happened five minutes ago let alone what the tv was trying to tell her. Sometimes she thinks she's still really young and she wants to know where her mother is, and then she'll realize her mother is dead. And I can't imagine what that must feel like, discovering over and over again that your parents are gone, that your sister is gone. And then forgetting, and wondering where they are and why you're alone (because she doesn't know that mum & I are her daughter & granddaughter) and then finding out again that in your view, your whole family is dead. Not knowing where you are, not being able to prepare your own food or even bathe yourself, or at this point even leave the house -! we got a special lock on our door so you have to have a key to get out the door because Nana kept leaving and we were afraid she was either going to fall down, because her legs aren't that steady anymore, or she would get lost, which was likely because even when I went on walks with her, she always thought other houses were ours and never recognized ours even with my car in the driveway - by yourself... I feel really bad sometimes when I look at how I react sometimes when she's being mean; I mean, yes, it can be irritating when she's purposefuly being mean. But looking at it from her point of view, she cannot leave this house. She can't even go for a walk by herself. And this was a woman who lived by herself for... since before I was born!  So I can understand why she would feel unsettled and lash out, because she's afraid and doesn't know what's going on and she's so off kilter she can't help it.
I can't imagine how scary it must have been when she was living on her own and she started showing signs of Alzheimers, she was so afraid of being "put away" she hid it from everyone for a long time. Mum ended up having to step in to help her, and I can't imagine how she - such an independant woman - must have felt knowing you were losing it, but not feeling like you could tell anyone, in fact feeling like you had to hide it, and then having your child come in and have to take over and take care of you.

OK I made myself cry. I'm done now.


Day 23 | A YouTube video

Day 22 | A website

Uh. Hm.

Well I really like

Bejeweled 2

...look, don't judge me just because I'm easily amused, ok?


Day 21 | A recipe

Uh... well, for a DELICIOUS treat that I usually make for Christamas:

You need

1 stick of butter
1-1 1/2 cup(s) of brown sugar
box of saltines
bag of chocolate chips

You put the butter in a pot, wait til it's a little melted, dump in the brown sugar, stir it all around so it's all fully mixed. While you're waiting for it to get to an almost boil, lay down a layer of saltines on a pan. Sometimes you need to add a little more brown sugar to the pot, to get the right consistency; I don't like a lot of butter staying at the top so I add more brown sugar until there isn't as much butter laying on top. Then pour the melted butter & brown sugar over the saltines, spread it evenly, then pour the chocolate chips over it as well and smooth those out; the heat from the butter & brown sugar will melt the chocolate chips.
Wait for it to cool, then you can snap it apart.
Sometimes I just dip saltines in the concoction.
All in all,


Day 20 | A hobby of yours

Uhm. Hm. I... don't know?
I don't have many hobbies. Does listening to music count as a hobby? Becuase that's what I'm doing most of the time; I always have music on in the background, and whenever I'm shopping or anything I always have my mp3 player on and I'll be dancing down the aisles and lipsynching words and other people start to look at me funny...


Day 19 | A talent of yours

A talent. Well, I always remember where the car is parked. Even when I am drunk out of my mind and wasn't even the one driving and everyone else thinks that the car is in the opposite direction, I remember where the car actually is. My mum finds this particularly helpful because she never remembers where the car is. Even if there are only like two rows of parking. She just has NO sense of direction. SO... yes. I am AWESOME at remembering where the car is parked. A most helpful talent, honestly.


Day 18 | Whatever tickles your fancy

Let me introduce you to THE LOVE OF MY LIFE. No lie; this cat owns my soul.

Just Breathe x Pearl Jam

Keep Me In Your Heart x Warren Zevon


Day 14 | A non-fictional book

cunt: a declaration of independence x inga muscio

Unless otherwise stated, throughout this book the words "gentleman," "man" and the like are used to refer to the tightly knit, male social power structure as it is recognized in American patriarchal society.
Let it be know that the author is fully cognizant of the fact that many men in this world strive for women's rightful place in society. Without the work, study, love and support of certain members of the male sector of humanity, this book would not have been as thoroughly articulated as it was.
The author is grateful and indebted to many members of this sector of humanity, both living and dead, of which her loving father, brothers, nephews, Malcolm X and Robert Graves are merely six.
The author would also like to acknowledge that masculine and feminine nouns and pronouns impose unrealistic limitations on lived human experience. The author looks forward to the time when our vocabulary reflects the reality and complexity of our multi-gendered human nature.
All that said, the author continues to be free to talk some serious shit.
