TGIF

Ok, I'm in a chipper mood right now and have no idea why. (Which forces me to use the above/to the side/however you have your LJ formatted icon because it's impossible to look at that image and not smile. :) It's not like anything particularly wonderful happened today. And it's OMG THE LAST EPISODE EVER! of Stargate:SG1 tonight. Which, yes, I have seen it already, but, still! Also, without giving anything away, as far as finales go, it's a pretty satisfying ending.

It is a gorgeous day here and I do get to look out my window at the sun and listen to Snow Patrol and bounce (ok, not really) along as I do my work. Thus far today it has been quite - no emergencies or annoying phone calls or e-mails. The Boss returns from vacation on Monday and I'm sure that will change. This is not me slamming the guy, I just know that after he catches up on e-mail and voice mail he'll have 101 questions and I'll just sit there, nod my head, tell him it's been taken care of already, and if there are any complaints about me they are all lies.

I'm also ridiculously excited because I decided to take July 5th and 6th off. No, there is nothing special about those days accept they are between the July 4th holiday and the weekend which means I'll have five days off in a row! With no plans! Woo! The goal is to watch a lot of DVDs, read the backlog of magazines, and write fic dammit. There also may be some more cleaning and organizing too since I'm nutty enough to enjoy that sort of thing as long as it doesn't involve the bathroom or kitchen.

Oh, there be BSG spoilage floating around which makes me very happy. I don't mean that in the sense that there is news that Ron finally came to his senses about Lee and Laura and they'll be having a passionate affair this coming season, just that there are spoilers. I've missed them and the speculation.

Anyone else go into Target looking for a CD and instead walk out with clothes and almost a piece of furniture? Those damn clearance items always get me. Accept I couldn't rationlize spending $50 on a wobbly table.

Tomorrow I get to see divahag after far too long an absence. YAY!

Hmmmm, I guess I do see why I'm in a good mood. And this post is brought to you by me having way too much time on my hands. Now off to find some chocolate.

For some reason, this amendment cracked me up just now. *g*

Yay for a good day! I could use some chocolate...
Probably too much porn on the brain. ;)

Let me know if you are up for more torture on Sunday. If not, you know what days I'll be available now and you should be free of thesis angst by then. :)
You know, it's sad to me that I nearly forgot the final finale is tonight. I mean, I have been watching this show for 9 of the ten years it was on, and kept my digital cable just so I could keep watching it on scifi after it left showtime. Perhaps it's a good thing that's it's going before it truly nosedives *cough*x-files*cough* but it's still sad to me that I'm not as sad today as I would have been had it ended 3-4 years ago. It just didn't work for me without Jack, despite the Claudia love, and my undying Michael Shanks fangirling aside.

Glad to hear it was a satisfying close, too! I always worry about being let down by series endings. Fare the well, gate -o- stars!
I was just thinking about finales I've watched and how they range from good (ST:TNG)to what the hell were you thinking (a lot - but Will & Grace is still fairly fresh in my mind). The thing about The X-Files is it could have been worse. Imagine if David hadn't been willing to come back and we had a Mulder-less finale? It was his damn journey! And the finale shot of he and Scully lying in each others arms, paralleling that scene between them in the pilot, was pretty awesome. :)

When I started watching SG1 Jack was already gone so I didn't really miss him then. Now, is another story. There are times I really wish he was around. Usually when Landry opens his mouth. :p
Has anyone told you your boundless enthusiasm is contagious? ;)

I will be curious to hear your thoughts on it. Having been burned by far too many series finales I have to say, overall, I was happy with this one. Though, there were a couple things, ideally, I would have liked to have seen addressed, but didn't.
I've often been told I'm "special", but that's another story. To your great credit, you are a rationale THAT PERSON. And I can appreciate your feelings even if I don't always agree with them. I just commented over on danceswithwords LJ that I wonder how I would feel about the end if I had been there at the beginning ten years ago. I came into this fandom for Ben and Claudia and if I hadn't I may feel very different about some things.
I have missed girlie!Jamie!icons! He's so pretty! And you're so freaking cute that you make me need a drink. :) I have yet to watch S3 of BSG. I suppose I should attempt to do that before S4 starts?

*adds SG-1 to list of DVDs to watch*
Someday when we meet, yes, it *will* happen, you and I will be having a little Jamie marathon. ;)

I'd pressure you to watch Season 3 of BSG right NOW, but the two hour movie doesn't debut until November and Season 4 begins in early 2008 so you have a little time to catch up.

You're going to give SG1 a try? Wheeeee!!! danceswithwords got me addicted to it and I suppose it's my turn to pass on the favor. (And it shouldn't be hard to get hooked what with the hot guys in black tee shirts. =)

Excellent. Sometimes the best vacation in the world is just the opportunity to loaf and recharge your batteries. (I'm feeling sooooo much better after last weekend.)

And it's OMG THE LAST EPISODE EVER! of Stargate:SG1 tonight.

SOB.
Glad you are feeling better. Yeah, I definitely need some recharging. And basically having, if I'm lucky, a day a week to do it is not cutting it.

I'm thinking of baking brownies in honor of the finale. Probably during the first airing. Yes, I get to live the trauma twice tonight!

'Window of Opportunity' was voted THE favorite episode. Really? ::does not get fandom::
