I have absolutely nothing to say, but I haven't posted in a couple of days, so here we are.

Watched Saved! last night, the Jesus high school movie with Mandy Moore and McCauley Culkin. Hilarious! It was a lot more entertaining than I thought it would be. How disturbing is it that that kind of closed environment reminded me of something, but I'm not sure what? Yeah, I'm making *no* sense.

Finally watched the Stargate SG-1 ep I DVR'd on Friday, "Stronghold." I continue to love Mitchell (thanks to Ben Browder's fine acting), but I'm not sure what the writers are thinking. How about less angsting over people I don't know and more bonding with the team? Yes? Yes. Watched last week's Battlestar and OMG, I love that show. Great story lines, great writing. That show deserves every good word I've seen in print, and then some.

Oh! Speaking of SGA, I'm gonna fic pimp. Seeing how once again I'm all about the less popular pairing, John Sheppard/Ronon Dex stories don't happen along that often. Yay! You can imagine my pleasure at finding a small stash of them by Bone. Yes, I continued to be dazzled by the gorgeousness that is Jason Momoa. I'm only human folks, and he is insanely beautiful. *cough* Yes.

On the writing front, yay! I'm kicking a couple of things nearer to completion, even though I'm still thinking about my JuC offerings for JuC Day. A couple of days ago (yesterday?) someone asked how to get through writer's block. I didn't think that I had any advice but now I realize that what I usually do is just start writing anyway. It could be something completely unrelated, or something that sounds stupid, or...whatever. The trick is to set your fingers and brain in motion, to get them doing *something* instead of nothing.

I tried to participate in some kind of meme where you only answer comments using your icons but because I am lame, I screwed up twice. I now understand how it works, but feh. Too embarrassed to play. BWAHAHA, but not too embarrassed to share my shame with my flist! I kill me.

Oh, SG-1, you kill me.

SG-1 whining...AS! IT! HAPPENS! )

Anyone who read all of that ramble deserves a virtual cookie. ;-)

Edited to add: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA! Holy frig, man, what a perfect, perfect show. I can't believe I haven't been sucked in before now. This series deserves multiple Oscars. Yes, I know. Don't mess with my fantasy. ::loves::

So glad I decided to check in on SG-1 last night as I was apparently on crack and it *was* the beginning of the second half of the season after all. Woohoo!

Putting my thoughts behind an LJ cut since at least one person on my friends list is spoiler-allergic to anything after the first season. If you haven't seen the later seasons, don't click the link because...well. Don't. Or do, but don't blame me if you're seriously spoiled after reading.

SciFi Friday thoughts and opinions of Fox X. Monkey.

Stargate SG-1 ramblings. )

Atlantis! I was talking to Dad during most of this so I missed what were probably important plot points. Still, I got to ogle the pretty (Ronon!) for a while. Ronon, Sheppard and Teyla are my favorites (love Teyla!). I can't stand Rodney McKay, so the fact that he wasn't much in last night's show made me happy. I did enjoy the babbling but mostly, I'm happiest when he isn't onscreen being annoying. Dr. Weir! Aiiii, this woman makes Dr. Lam look manic. I don't even think that 'wooden' accurately expresses it. As someone in LJland noted, though, seeing the original Dr. Weir on SG-1 gave them a whole new appreciation for Atlantis!Weir, and I agree - and that's probably why the original didn't reprise the role. Yikes!

Battlestar! WOW, this show has finally snagged me. I've seen bits and pieces and the odd ep here and there, but for some reason I just never connected enough to watch on a weekly basis. Ha! That's changed, because I'm going to be right there waiting for it next week.

Unlike the other Friday shows, I like all of the actors on this show. No one really bugs me, though I can take or leave Starbuck and Apollo. Eh. I love, love, love Mary McDonnell, and Edward James Olmos and Grace Park are my two remaining favorites. There's strong writing and great acting on this show, so again, I'm not sure why I just never really got hooked. I'm looking forward to next week's episode.

And on that note, eeeeeep! Time to call Dad!
