Oof

Man, I did not sleep well last night. And when I did, I was having all these weird dreams about Homer and Bart Simpson dumping people into storm sewers (at least it was pretty funny at the time) and Brennan showing off her foster home scars to Booth and something weird about Sheppard that I don't even fully remember. I just know it was weird. The funny thing is that for me, these dreams were still more lucid than usual.

Oh, I also dreamed I was watching 24 and somebody nuked LA (but Jack and co were still alive) and I was chatting with people and I was all, "Ha, LA just got nuked, snicker snicker".

Yes, I changed my layout again, mostly because I really missed my links list. Other than that, Novel is a pretty cool layout.

Anyhoo, I should go get something to eat. Today is a staff development day at the school, which aren't nearly as fun when you're on the teacher side of the desk as when you're on the student side. Alas.

Shock of the week:

Nope, it has nothing to do with anything on SciFi: Torri, Amanda and Rachel are mentioned in an article on Netscape Celebrity called Sexy SciFi Babes:
Of course we can't leave out some of the Sci-Fi Network's other leading ladies - Amanda Tapping of "Stargate: SG-1," who first got hersci-fi feet wet with "The Outer Limits" and "The X-Files," RachelLuttrell, best known as a member of a fallen alien world on "Stargate: Atlantis," and last but not least, Luttrell's co-star Torri Higginson, who takes great pride in playing the woman in charge on her hit show, Dr. Elizabeth Weir.

Says Higginson of her character, "What I originally liked about her most is that I thought her politics were sort of similar to mine, which is fun to play in a genre which usually kind of embraces the whole Manifest Destiny ideas, which isn't one of my politics," she tells us. "I liked that she was anti-military and really fought for a universal, global community. But when you're dealing with aliens that want to suck the life out of you, politics shift a bit." Indeed.

Reliquary update

So I'm about five chapters into the book now and it's gotten a little better. Still a little clunky, still not terribly impressed with how Teyla and Ford are written, although the OC's are pretty good so far. Finally got some peril, which kind of helped things along.

(no subject)

Why is it that basically every night I make an effort to go to bed early, I end up not being able to sleep at all?

Reliquary has gotten surprisingly interesting all of a sudden. Almost too all of a sudden, actually, although it's a big improvement. The annoying thing is that it took them so long to get to the peril!

UPDATE: Okay, I have taken advantage of my insomnia to write a couple pages of... tennisfic! Yay! I'm only now discovering how fun it is to emotionally whump Sheppard.
