Have a bad case of the Mondays? Need a guaranteed pick-me-up? This is one of my favorite bits from one of my all-time favorite shows: Whose Line Is It Anyways?

Holy cow. Ever think you'd like the harmonica? Neither did I. But check out what this kid can do.

It helps that Rhapsody In Blue is one of my favorite pieces of music.

Get this.

Just had to share. So, I'm kind of dabbling in a new pairing - Tony Stark and Pepper Potts from the Iron Man movies. And the pairing is called Pepperony. Ha! I love fandom.

And now I want pizza.

Oh God, I have a new ship. Took me long enough, and of course, the show's long gone, but I don't care because I LOVE having a new ship.

It's Battlestar Galactica. I started watching about 2 months ago, and then I found my ship and went a bit nuts. I watched all of season 3 in less than a week. I'm head over heels for Adama/Roslin. Like, marathoning episodes like an addict looking for a fix. Grinning stupidly at work because I can't wait to get home and watch some more. And the sad thing is I'm on the last season and then it will be DONE and I'll have no more to look forward to. :( But for now I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts, and maybe look for some good AR fic.

By the way, I blame all of you. You know who you are.

I was at doggy daycare today when my boss, who drops the dogs at home at the end of the day, called and said one of the clients was going to see Wicked tonight but couldn't go, and wondered if one of us wanted the tickets. YES. Yes yes yes. So I got last minute free tickets to Wicked, and more than that they were in the 8th row. I've wanted to see Wicked since I first heard the soundtrack, and this is the first year it's been here but tickets cost an arm and a leg. But I got FREE TICKETS. In the 8TH ROW. And it was AH-MAZING. Amazing, amazing amazing. I'm still on a high. I call Best Day This Year!

So, uh...anyone got some free web space? I was making my entry for the X-Files Advent Calendar (10 years! Can you believe it?), and I noticed my website, and old host, have been down for a while. So, is there any kindly soul out there who could perhaps host my battered old site? It's mainly my old collages, icons, and artwork related things (tutorials, resources, etc.). You can see some of it on the Wayback Machine. I only update it when I make new art, which just isn't that often anymore, but I like to have it up for old times sake. Just thought I'd ask. :)

I think I broke my Kindle. My birthday was 2 weeks ago and my mom got me a Kindle. And I've loved it. Aaaand, I just had it on my bed and leaned back with my elbow accidentally on it. I heard a crack. And now it's got a crack in the image, with most of the screen unresponsive. Just because I haven't had a crappy enough summer. I suck.

Why yes, it is me. Just thought I should post...something. Anyone still remember me? *L*

Yeah, so, I had something happen that made me not want to post here anymore. And it was stupid, and silly, but I lost my trust in being able to be totally free and open here, which was the main reason I used LJ. So, I haven't given up on it, and probably never will, but I can't promise I'll be terribly active in the near future either. I hope to someday take it up again, because I miss that outlet it provided. I honestly think my life has been poorer for the lack of it. But, we'll see, and this is all sounding terribly depressing, and I'm not really (just haven't had a day off in over 2 weeks and feeling kinda trapped). SO, here's hoping you're all okay out there in cyberspace. I miss you all so much. *hugs*

Good times

Okay, it's late late late and I know I haven't updated in forever and there's a lot to update on and I even owe some people e-mails, but just a quick update before I collapse of exhaustion (5 hours of sleep last night):

Today I got to hold the bald eagle. By accident. I work at a bird show, and I don't yet handle the bald eagle, Chinook (and with my horrid boss, never expect to). But today I was wheeling her up the hill and her crate door just popped open. She flew out and landed next to th pathway, with zoo guests watching. I only had a hawk glove with me (usually you need a second, larger sheath to handle an eagle), so I asked her up on to it and (thank god) she did. I got her back in the crate, but not before she bated once (when a bird tries to fly off the glove, it's a bate). So, uh, it was unexpected and slightly terrifying (all the things that could have gone wrong...), but also just a bit exciting. Chinook is huge (10.5 pounds, which is big for a bird) and majestic and just plain a sight to see, so it was a thrill to have her on my glove, even for just a second.

And that was the fun today. I've had a great few weeks, as my boss was away on vacation. It's been freeing and fun and reminds me why I really do love this job. And as I said, there's a lot more to say, but for right now I need to go to bed before I fall asleep on my keyboard. Miss you all, love you. *mwah*

So I just got back from about the most awesome thing ever - Kooza, my first Cirque Du Soleil show! I've ALWAYS wanted to see a live Cirque show, and it was as good as I hoped. Better yet, FREE! My spring intern at the zoo came from Las Vegas. Her husband works for Cirque, and she's been ushering for the touring show in town while interning with us. Today was her last day, and she got free tickets to see the show with her family before she leaves tomorrow. By chance she got an extra free ticket and offered it to me since I'd been saying how much I wanted to see it. So heeeeeee, I got a FREE Cirque show, with a friend, and it was so completely awesome. It was funny, and awe-inspiring, and breathtaking, and really just an all-around fantastic show. I feel blessed.

Wow. Crap-tacular day. Had a horrible day at work and then my favorite contestant is kicked off Idol. And honestly, I have no hope for Bones tomorrow raising my spirits. If I drank I'd be getting drunk tonight. As it is, I'm just going to go to bed. This day needs to end.

Is it Thursday yet? Can I have another chapter of Murder in the Marriage? Tim and Casey won at Idol tonight. David and Emily on Idol! So strange. 2 hours of Beatles music is my idea of awesome. The sun needs to come out more. I need to buy milk.

...Is it Thursday yet?

ZOMG OMG OMG!!!! [ profile] bloodwrites updated The Murder in the Marriage! That's the third in her series that together may make my favorite fic ever. It's tied with Parabiosis (*gasp*, blasphemy!). I had an absolutely craptacular "weekend" and was feeling down in the dumps, and that totally brightened my entire outlook. Not just one but TWO new chapters! I'm reading one tonight and saving the other for a down day. Having something to look forward to coming home to can brighten any day.

It's really sad that this is a big deal to me. And I don't care. Hee!

Holy SHIT can Siobahn Magnus belt it.

She caught my eye last week and this performance just knocked it out of the park. She is a strange little thing, with the dreamy, spacey way of talking and everything, but she's got TALENT, dude. I want to see much more of her. My other favorite is Crystal Bowersox, who has been consistently amazing. Katie Stevens had me from auditions, and though she has the voice, she just has not been delivering in these live shows. Ah well. Bring on some Siobahn, dude! I'm a fan.
