See JQ, I think you're the type to rarely be taken seriously. I can usually read your intended sarcasm and jokes in your posts...even when you cross the line. If you were all of a sudden to decide that you are brow-furrowing serious about everything, I would have a very hard time switching gears to reading you like that.

But whatever.

And Ha! to this:

I've been getting them too. I thought it was just the crappy computer at work, but I guess not.

Have decided to resign from crappy job. I do need the money right now, but I also need my mental health, which is in extremely short supply. Will hopefully find something soon.

I hope my serious side, when it does come out, is as easy to tell, if not to take. Really though I take a lot of things very seriously and when I get passionate about something, I blog! If I'm really mad I might write a letter to someone. I don't use inflamatory language because it very effectively turns off the listening switch. As for reading me, bring your own subtext, as Joss has said.

Not to bum you out more or anything but I'm totally going and this reminds me. CK, should I expect to see any CK relatives at the drafthouse this Saturday? It's the last weekend of the downtown location in case you didn't know. Luckily they are just moving to a new location. Still sad to lose the landmark though.

It's funny how I can actually get all excited to see a movie I've seen a ton of times already.

Were you a late comer to the browncoat community or just a lot of stuff going on when it was in theaters?

And don't worry too much I'd guess we'll be seeing another round of charity screenings next year.

Heh, yeah, I know. Stylist, top of the line styling products, maybe a good perm, perhaps even extensions. But in my quest to be lower maintenance, I wonder if I grew my hair out and got a perm, then found a styling product I could put on right out of the shower, if I could get my hair to look curly and tousled like that on an every day basis. Perms I could do. Curling my own hair every day (much less hiring a stylist, ha!), not so much. It does remind me a bit of this video though:

I can see how people could throw this back in my face; setting up an image of myself as a chauvinist through jokes, and then wondering why people get offended when I make a legitimate argument that seems to be based off of that same chauvinism. Personally, though, I expect people to have a more developed ability to decipher jokes from reality. I refuse to cater to people's misinterpretations of who I am. If I take an optimistic look at it, it's actually resulted in filtering out people I probably wouldn't have gotten along with anyways, and put me in the good graces of people that appreciate my type of personality more, such as Tristan, JQ, and more recently CK.

I'm not sure if I've recently started to "get" your humor and posting tone, or if you've changed since you've been away, or a bit of both, but I definitely feel like I understand you a bit better this time around. I don't always agree with you, but then I don't know a single person that I always agree with. Whether it's you or me that's changed, I'm finding talking with you and being "around" you in the virtual sense to be a much more enjoyable experience than before you left for this last tour of duty. So I for one will try to assume that smirk more often, just as I often read JQ's posts as being followed by a 'ba-dom-chshhh'. And I hope that you'll read my posts to you as friendly and interested, rather than judgmental or mean-spirited.

I don't *think* so, but I haven't actually asked them. One of my sisters is going to Germany next week, and the other is working insane hours, so they probably won't be going. Dad hasn't said, but he didn't plan on going last year and ended up getting a ticket from a friend at the last minute, so he may get to go again this year. CSTS totally snuck up on me this year -- how the hell did it get to be late June already?!

*hug* Meant to comment earlier, CK.

***Please skip over this post if you aren't interested in a hair discussion. Thank You!***

If that was you in the pic you posted earlier, your hair appears stick straight, like mine. People like you and I, despite perms and what not, do not have those pretty flowing curls unless you've just come from the hair dresser's, as voiced by Rugbug.
My stylist used to call that sort of hair a "done 'do."

I have long hair...and long hair is actually more work than shorter hair. I try to air dry my hair at least 2x a week, to reduce damage. The longer is is, the older it is, so the ends get brittle without constant upkeep. It can take 3 hours for my hair to air dry thoroughly, or up to 15 minutes with a hairdryer.
Products only work so so on long hair, as gravity is a cruel mistress and straight long hair is not meant to have that tousled look.

Sorry!

I worked nights when the show was on (if you can really call it on with the crappy programming) and had no clue what Serenity was when it came out. I am actually a self imposed fan. I ran into the show at Ballbuster and was hooked.

Thinking about prejudice, I was wondering about some of y'alls. I hate Science Fiction. After being disillusioned by Trek it has been a hard road in finding pieces of the genre I liked. I finally saw Logans Run all the way through two years ago and was mainly annoyed with the 70's styling and mentality. But it was still mildly intruiging. I also hate alot of romantic comedy and movies/shows drawn from romance novels. I was shown flicks based on the Janette Oke's books shown on the Hallmark Channel. Love Comes Softly is the only one I haven't seen. Very heart felt, set in the West, but includes some religious over tones. Not pushy on the religiosity, but it is obvious.

Lost my point. Yeah. Is there any recommendations for either genre that I might enjoy?

I actually saw Love Comes Softly. I'm not the type to watch Hallmark movies (too much with the sappy resolutions), but that one wasn't half bad.

Naturally with my bass ackwardness I saw the last one (Loves Abiding Joy) first. Just had to see the last part first. I hate not knowing the rest of the story.

I really hate the preceptions with romance in all the various media. What really pisses me off is Sex In THe City. It pisses me off so much that I can't even come up with a coherent statement of my anger.

If it helps, I never put too much stock in shows (or books) like Sex In The City. While I'm sure that some women might lead lives like that, the majority of women I know certainly don't. Course, if they painted a realistic picture of most women's lives, no one would want to air it.

*Hugs* Yup, that was me. I don't often post pictures, but I have a hard time explaining what my hair looks like, even to a stylist, so I figured posting a picture might be the easiest way to illustrate. I've had long hair most of my life, and I've had tight spiral perms a couple of times, with varying results. I've really only cut my hair short twice, once after the first round of Alopecia Areata took most of my waist-length hair and new hair had started to grow in, and then again two years ago after dying my hair for 10 years. I like my short hair and I *really* like not dying my hair anymore, but I see those pretty tousled curls and get to wondering, heh. If I went just below shoulder length and got a looser perm, could it work? Probably not, but it's fun to look at pictures.

Hey, so was I! I started working overnights a week before the show premiered, and quit my job two weeks after the pilot was finally aired. To top it all off, I got engaged the beginning of that same September, and got married the next January, so I was working overnights *and* planning my wedding at the same time. I don't think I watch any TV at all for those few months.

Quote:

In just shows and movies, or books as well? I love scifi books, but shows and movies are hit and miss for me. Definitely see Galaxy Quest if you haven't, though it's as much a comedy and a parody as it is a scifi movie. As far as romantic movies, I tend to shy away from anything too sappy, and anything too insipid. I also could not stand Sex in the City (I think I'm one of the only women my age who couldn't, heh), and actually have found some of the best romantic story lines in TV shows that aren't by nature romances (the first few seasons of Buffy, for example). As for movies, Casablanca is of course a classic, and I also love What Dreams May Come and Shadowlands. I also really enjoyed Love Actually and Down With Love, and I'm a life-long When Harry Met Sally fan.

I recently saw The Holiday with (Yuk) Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet and Eternal Happiness of the Spotless Mind (again with Kate Winslet. Strangely I enjoyed The Holiday. Hollywood tentacles reached in on this one but not too deep. Not to mention it had a supporting part for Eli Wallach which was too cool. Eternal was fantastic. I don't see why it didn't do better.

And your right DG. If realistic lives of women were portyayed few would watch it. But luckily I'm one of the few. There is nothing wrong with fantasy. But trying to make fantasy the standard is unhealthy. Just the same as porn, all this overtly romantic BS leaves people with unhappy and unfulfilled expectations. Hell, I feel alot of my romantic gestures in the past were a bit of a waste. Got nothing to show for it but less money and spent creativity.

Hey all...forgive the typing as one of my cats keeps walking past

CMH- Hey what am I chopped liver?? LOL HUGS sweety. OH never never look to teachers for maturity. We're all about 1/2 a step up from whatever grade we teach...( by the way the mental image of your friend trying to freak you out is the best laugh I've had all day)

CK- hmm you're really hot so hair is irrelevant

See this is why I think we need facial expression typing or something...it's also why I never assume someone is saying something to irritate or upset. I just assume that it's their reality ( no matter how it mixes or doesn't mix with mine) Hey we all have our own world... it's the Wyatt/Annie discussion. We can take them out to see Mike's riding lawnmower and Wyatt will look at it and say " tractor" and Annie will respond " No...lawnmower" and Wyatt will smile and say " tractor" (this continues for upwards of 10 minutes sometimes) They each see the same thing, they just see it differently and each thinks their own interpretation is correct... and it doesn't really matter... the item will continue to exist as it always has and Wyatt will always see a tractor and Annie will always see a lawnmower...it's a good thing they don't let this get in the way of how much they like each other.

I can't believe I forgot Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind! I love that movie. And I think their decision at the end is one of the most realisitcally romantic moments I've ever seen in a movie.

I just checked my very limited DVD collection, and I own French Kiss, Notting Hill, and While You Were Sleeping, all quite cute romantic comedies.

As far as scifi goes you can't go wrong with the matrix. Sadly I've seen way too many romantic comedies and might even own a few on dvd though I will neither confirm nor deny that.

*ahem*

Anyway I'm a kate beckinsale fan so I'd recommend Serendipity as a romantic comedy. It's definitely goofy at times and sappy at others, but overall one of the higher rated ones on my list. Even if the plot doesn't do it for you...it's got kate beckinsale!

Ok I must interrupt for the cute baby story ( complete with picture). It was Annie's birthday and we had a party for her which included a pinata. Well Annie got out her little bat and whacked as instructed only to be horrified when the pinata broke. She rushed out and pulled the halves together and cried " friend...friend" Seems she thought the pinata was a stuffed animal and she'd hurt it. She felt awful. We taped him back up and she recovered but still bandaids the pinata each morning and says sorry friend to it.
Here's Annie right before it breaks

Heh...I read the Love Comes Softly, etc books when I was in Jr. High. Haven't seen the movies.

I'm a huge romantic movie sap, but I tend to favor the darker ones the most. A Life Less Ordinary is one of my favorites. Home Fries, Garden State, Elizabethtown, etc. I could go check my extensive collection, that has a list to go with, but you would all know what a huge freak I am, then.

I'm also a Kate Beckinsale fan. And a John Cusack fan...so Serendipity scores high marks.

CK, you mentioned a movie...just checked...Down with Love that is SOOOOO great. Totall cheesy but just wonderful. Doesn't hurt that Ewan McGregor is in it.

NVG: for Scifi series, check out The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. Now, you have to give it about 6 episodes before it starts taking hold, and the cheese factor is purposefully high, but I bet at the end you will want to be Brisco...and all the women will want to meet a man like Brisco...chin and all.

Garden State. Incredible. Not altogether believeable that all that stuff could happen in the few days it takes place, but believeable on the human aspect.

ADD: Loved Brisco when I had the chance to watch it (Adds to Amazon wish list). John Cusack is the man! Loved High Fidelity and always revert back to Say Anything... despite its stalkery moments. Going with BabySis and GND (and possibly my Mindy) to see 1408 this weekend. Can't freakin' wait.

I seem to have missed all of last night's conversation so here's a brief catch-up:

I love Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, Garden State and John Cusack but I hate Hugh Grant and Notting Hill.

And Msg- Annie is sooooo cute.

It's an incredibly overcast day. Had to turn on all the lights to keep my mood up.

No responses yet on my resumes. *sigh* Continuing the search today. I have to be picky about which jobs I apply for. I don't want to be put in a position where I'm agreeing to a job that has tons of overtime or would require a huge commute. Commute time is huge factor here in the DC area.

I don't know. But after nearly a week of almost solid rain I say we deserve a little sunshine. And it's supposed to rain for the rest of the week.

Did you figure out why you were temporarily banished?

No clue. I just got a "site unavailable", too. I blame Harry Dresden.

mornin' Mavs *hugs*, Hobbleit, Fly.

I had a "site unavailable" for a short while, but as you can see, that is no longer the case.

It is overcast here today too Mavs, and I love it. 72F and a bit breezy, really can't beat that (though I hope it stays here and doesn't follow me to the beach).

Ola everyone (again if I just saw you on serenitymovie.org).

And there will be no blaming of Harry Dresden, Flyvote. He needs all the support we can give him. *grumble stupid Sci-fi grumble*

Good morning....

It's overcast here in sunny CA as well. But this is typical June Gloom by the beach. People think beaches mean sun. Ha. I think it's a huge joke on all the tourists that come for a sunny beach vacation only to be met with cold, overcast nastiness. Ever heard of the marine layer? Well, now ya know about it.

It should burn off by noon. then we've been having some nice days.

Mavs: don't know if this is something that would work for you, but in my area, we have great luck with personnel agencies. Most of the good companies hire through them...it saves a lot of time and money for them on hiring and if the person doesn't work out, it's not a lot of effort to send them packing. 'Course this isn't true in regards to professional type positions (Lawyers, doctors, CPAs, engineers...the only types to really make money around here) but I can't remember if you fall into any of those categories. It's worth a shot...and could get you some temp work in the meantime, if that's necessary. (I got my current job thru a temp agency...been here almost 8 years...same with th previous three jobs...'course I suck at the whole job search thing).

Hi Rugbug,

I've submitted my resume to a few jobs through agencies. Here in Washington, agencies are usually good, but I haven't personally had luck going through them.
And I'm more of an office professional/admin type. I've managed offices, and have pretty extensive experience in the book business. (Not a lawyer or doctor!)

I'm getting a little disheartened, as I am currently competing against a lot of recent college graduates who can work for less than I can. Also, I have some pretty specific needs in terms of hours and responsibility, as I have a young son - and having a job with too much responsibility/overtime/mental exhaustion nearly cost me my marriage. I won't do that again.

It's overcast and rainy deep in the heart of texas too. Really made it a pain to wake up this morning. What is it about rainy days that makes me so sleepy? Or is it just getting home late from poker nights?

Oh well at least the workday is 1/8th over.

Hey all, I'm back.

Just been doing my nails and watching a Ross Noble DVD.

It's still sunny and warm!

I like rainy days, as long as there aren't too many of them. And the more thunder and lightning, the better. We've gotten one day of rain in about two weeks recently, we could definitely use some more.

Well it's 97 degrees here and cloudless...I may die! No air conditioning...

I don't work in farenheit so I have no idea what 97 degrees is. It's about 21 clecius here; which is far too hot in my opinion.

hey Deep, RugBug *hugs*, MsG *hugs*


The sun came out here too, though there are still lots of clouds. Hopefully the rainy-ness will return before I have to drive this afternoon.

EDIT: 97F ~ 36.1C, unless I did the maths wrong in my head.
