current mood: tired

Not much of a real update right now - things are just rather busy and tiring at work this week due to the inevictable August everyone going on holiday stuff. That leaves us short-handed and in the 'care' of a temporary boss who doesn't understand or care regarding just which bits of the job need extra staff at which points. So, stress.

Balloon poll update tonight for sure though. I promise!

Hopefully that'll get done before the 4th ep of Lost turns up on uk tv tonight. Yes, I'm watching. Yes, I might well be hooked. And yes, it was the polar bears that did it.

And ooo! Finally watched the first two episodes of Stargate season 9 - Vala's a hoot! Her and Daniel make one of those superb, bickering teams that's just great fun to watch. Unfortunately, I seem to have missed her first appearence - anyone know which ep that was in?

The de rigeur exclamation seems to be "OMGWTFPOLARBEAR?!?", which I think has enough charm that it should be used more often. So, yes. Watch Lost. We will then talk of Katehate and whether Locke is evil and polar bears.

Shakespear WTF?

Having just seen the 4th ep, and the Locke backstory, all I have to say is OMGWTFWHEELCHAIR?!?!

Heee! I personally love Locke, but it seems like most people think he's an evil bastard.

Vala

Vala Maldoran (at least, that's how I THINK she spells her name) first made an appearance in Season 8's "Prometheus Unbound".

General Hammond was not amused.

EmpressVes Initials [wildecate]

*grins* Skimming these comments, looks like you have Lost buddies already. Always nice...to wander into a fandom and suddenly find people happy to relive all the squealy moments with you.

Sorry to hear work is TEH suck. *hug* You know I would commit arson for you if I thought it would really solve anything.

Faith - Bitch Please [pastelstar]

*raised brow*

No, no. I think this is "See?! I told you Booster would love Vala to little leather-clad bits. He's a straight male."

I have yet to find one of those who dislikes Vala. Of course, then there is a straight female and gay male lobby - we still think she's dishonest and manipulative and, until the most recent epi, doing nothing but bringing out the WORST in Daniel and the rest of the SG-1ers.

And Dude, just because a lot of guys think Vala is sex on legs, does not make me any more thrilled with the way her character is dominating the show right now. /rant

KP - Your Point [rockontheedge]

Speaking as Ms. Perfect Carter channeling her inner-Faith: Fuck off. :P

Which show [icon-lowdownbeat]

And yet, weren't you the one voting for Carter in the Balloon poll?

Have a Vala icon to stare at. *grins*

Alice - Gosh [ghengis@GJ]

I did vote for Carter but that was 1) before we (JC and I) decided that in the grand SG-1 scheme I AM Carter (Guess who JC is...go on, GUESS) and 2) because it was HER idea to get in the balloon.

Oh Lost my new favorite mindfuck of a tv show. The one sterling example of how it's about the journey, not the destination. You'll see what I mean. ;-)

And may I just say that even though I'm not a Stargate fan your icon still cracks me up? Because, yes.

Improved Harvey [kajivar]

Farscape rocks.

Though I must say how impressed (yet again!) I am by the acting of Ben Browder and Claudia Black in SG-1, just for making me enjoy their interplay, but not making me think of Cricton and Aeryn. That's some serious good stuff there.

And Lost is just plain fun!
