Why are all my dreams demented? I dreamed that the kids that play Harry, Ron, and the Weasley twins were all children of Stephen Colbert, and I was trying to catch the eye of another of his sons that looked like a mini version of Will Bailey on West Wing.
A few nights ago, I dreamed I was Jack Sparrow and I wanted to make myself a salad, but then a bunch of people joined me, so I gave my salad to an old lady, then made salad for all the other women present, then everyone else, and by the time I was able to make my own salad, Barbossa and his gang came around and started acting all intimidating, so I gave Barbossa my salad and ran away.
Part of my Book 7 dream centered around horcruxes that reflected each of Harry’s 7 Defense Against the Dark Arts teachers. Lockhart corresponded to a flamboyantly gay dance instructor Voldemort once had, as he had a passion for musical theatre (and a crush on McGonagall).
My brain is a scary place to live.
I’m HOME! Actually, I got home yesterday, but I just couldn’t be bothered to blog. :D
Saw Memoirs of a Geisha with Mom (which was awesome), and I look forward to (hopefully!) seeing King Kong, Brokeback Mountain, and The Producers before heading off to Greece with Chungy on the 27th. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. I cannot get over how cool that is going to be! I’m planning on bringing my body weight in film.
Mail call: Got Christmas cards from Heidi, Renata (actually it was a belated birthday card, but whatever), Natalia, and Sannali! Alas, as I feared, my dad’s Christmas gift didn’t arrive in time. And if you want a postcard from Greece, send me your address at priscellie (at) gmail.com.
Also, from Gneil’s blog:
Terry Pratchett and I have written Aziraphale and Crowley’s New Year’s resolutions. They’ll be up somewhere at HarperCollins.com just after Christmas.
I noticed an ad in the Daily Pennsylvanian advertising an apartment with C/A. Now, A/C I get. But C/A? Does that mean that the inhabitants ship Carrot/Angua? Or Crowley/Aziraphale or Cordy/Angel? C/A already has far too many fandom associations. Why must housing ads tread already trampled turf?

Done! Physics was just about what I expected. Now off to Cosi with Ko to enjoy Spinach and Artichoke dip and other type goodies.
I have to leave for the airport at 4-4:30 tomorrow for a 6AM flight. Originally I was thinking of just staying awake, but now I’m thinking not so much. So tired. ZZZZZZzzzz.
Ah, Tucker Carlson. The Daily Show is going to have so much to talk about when it comes back from its holiday break! Last week, MSNBC host Tucker Carlson, a well-known conservative pundit, let loose with a string of anti-Canada rants.
“Anybody with any ambition at all, or intelligence, has left Canada and is now living in New York,” he said. “Canada is a sweet country. It is like your retarded cousin you see at Thanksgiving and sort of pat him on the head. You know, he’s nice but you don’t take him seriously. That’s Canada.”
Carlson also said it’s pointless to tell Canada to stop criticizing the United States. “It only eggs them on. Canada is essentially a stalker, stalking the United States, right? Canada has little pictures of us in its bedroom, right?” … “It’s unrequited love between Canada and the United States. We, meanwhile, don’t even know Canada’s name. We pay no attention at all,” he said.
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. Hot Topic now carries Serenity merchandise. Of course, I already have my own handmade version of the Medallion tee and I’m not as fond of the “My Turn” design, but still. Look at some of the potential designs we may see in the future! Glee! Our first real official merchandise. I wonder what effect this will have on the thriving fan-made merch economy?
(And of course, today I happen to be wearing my “I can kill you with my brain” tee from Shiny Shirts, in hopes that it will help me to thoroughly pwn my physics exam!)
DUDE. I just dreamed that I dreamed a huge chunk of the 7th Harry Potter book. If the real ending is anywhere as cool as my dream-ending, it’s going to ROCK.
So much Joss Whedon love today! (Have you bought your copy of Serenity yet?) One post on the joys of “Release-of-Serenity Day” and the other correcting Entertainment Weekly assumption that Joss would not be returning to the Firefly ‘verse.
“I hate Serenity, I hated Firefly, I think my fans are stupid and Nathan Fillion smells like turnips.” and “It’s like Christmas in July–in December!” (reg req)
Also, here‘s a really fun interview with Nathan!
