Katie made super fantastic amazing huzzah muffins yesterday, mostly by accidentally putting in too much margarine and not enough milk and oh my gosh they were so amazing. (Chocochunk Cherry). Today I am making multiflavours of biscotti for a pick up order tomorrow. Split pea with ham soup for lunch. Keith and Paul came by [...]

I am heading back to the cafe with Katie this morning. Real Humans, the SVT show from 2012, is the best sf show I’ve seen since BSG came out. It is filled with beautiful and nuanced performances, amazing photography, whip smart writing EVEN IN TRANSLATION, deft and surprising plotting, great background music, hat tips to [...]
I may have mentioned Jeff and I are working our way through the entirety of ER (when we need a palate cleanser, 2nd season SG1). We’ve had 8 seasons of getting to know, love and hate various people. I took a book out of the library about Must See TV, the part of the nineties [...]
So I completely blew the interview yesterday – fell apart during the test. I solaced myself with beer and lobster afterwards, so thoroughly downcast was I, and my Lumosity score fell like a rock this morning subsequent to me having two beers, so, note to self – alcohol does make you demonstrably dumber, please avoid [...]
I’ve but one summer, I’ve more than one name I can’t abide courts with their whispering games My mind is ice and my heart is a flame Loyalty kills you more swiftly than shame Gods hear my cry Traitors must die Stone, steel and sky We claim this vengeance, my Needle and I We claim [...]
I also CANNOT STOP THE SIGNAL In ¾ time The stated goal of SGC is acquiring alien tech For which we risk our hearts and minds Not just our pretty necks Woolsey and Kinsey on the earth The Gou’ald in space to vex But I know it’s true, and I know you do too What’s [...]
I watched the helicopter video of the assault on the Oakland OWS folks Gas. Un fracking believable. And oh look. http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/blogs/citydesk/2011/10/26/oakland-police-love-kittens-teargas/ So instead of showing the veteran who was injured by the assault by the police on peaceful protesters, they show an Oakland cop petting a kitten. If you see the video, you will be [...]
Considering that I think marriage is a crock I don’t know ‘zactly how to feel about this. Disturbing pic of a kid done up Clockwork Orange style. I’m only posting this in the hopes that pOp will forward a story about his childhood, maybe with an optional explosion. Man, I didn’t know there was a [...]
I remember him from Torcon II. I saw him at a Toronto Star lecture, and I’ve seen his ‘biopic’. I loved his television criticism. I squirmed to “I have no mouth and I must scream.” He’s only 76, and he will be missed.
Sheldon would be so pleased.
… and I lived in Ottawa, somebody came door to door asking my parents what they thought about contemporary television. My parents said they hated Disney stuff because parents were characterized as idiots, and preferred The Addams Family because the parents were actually parents, and there was love and affection and mutual support in the [...]
Katie got the job, she starts today at 9:30 am. It is ONE 20 minute bus ride from her house. Unless the traffic is bad, then it’s about half an hour. Commuting in the GVRD is hellish, so Katie well knows what a good deal this is, especially since her last interview was in North [...]
We’re blasting through Season 7… Keith is watching with us when we can. Ten reasons I love the show: The writing. It’s true that the Season 7 stories get more and more oddball, but the writing all the way through is top notch; each character is differentiated and given ample scope. The location work. Baltimore [...]
Check it out! It’s interviews with huge names in US TV. In other news, Tommy Douglas is the man, and the US health care system is in CRISIS. This article flat out disgusted and angered me.
