Per her Twitter, Danneel has announced that the coming Ackles is a girl. She also said that Jensen was hoping for a girl. They have a name picked out, but they ain't talkin'.

Yay, BabyGirlAckles! \o/

Jensen should be exponentially amusing at the upcoming convention, should this become a topic of conversation. And you know it will. Hee!

Don't mind me . . .  )

Tell me you want to play and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms. Then update your journal and answer the following questions:

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favorite episodes/books/movies, etc?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think more people should get into this fandom?

My life in fandom: Hercules, Numb3rs, Supernatural )

That looks really cool, doesn't it? 11/11/11=16.

It's been a good weekend. The weather has been gorgeous, so we took a drive on Skyline Drive yesterday. I also made a from-scratch German chocolate cake for a party today.

Today, we worked with the four-year-olds at church, went to an Octoberfest party (lots of German food--though German chocolate cake is not one of them), then worked a fundraising event for the theater. Oy.

Busy, busy week coming up. I'll try to get my long and rambly up at some point this week, but I might have to divide it into acts, like I did with the Still Life recaps.

I also need to write up about our trip to California, the scripture reading, and our trip to Disneyland.

I just . . . oy.


So . . .

So. For the last week, I've had an ache in my shoulder blade. Sometimes it's a dull ache; other times it's a sharp pain and makes me want to cry. Sometimes it just feels like a pulled muscle. Sometimes it feels tired. But it's been an almost constant presence, waxing and waning for a week.

Today I went to the doctor. After doing a couple of muscle and flexibility tests, he said that summertime is prime time for obnoxious viruses. (Yes, that's what he called them.) He said that the obnoxious virus that I've been vaccinated for is polio, but there are a lot of obnoxious viruses that are related to polio floating around, and this one has settled in my scapula. He wrote out a prescription for me and told me to exercise what didn't hurt, and drink more fluids to help flush it out. It should be gone in a week.

This has been your public health announcement.

News Flash:

First pictures of Jensen directing his S7 episode have hit the 'net. Warning: Casting spoiler included.

Please allow me to pause a moment and say, "Guh!" That man. I don't even . . .

Now, about the casting spoiler )

Upon re-watching TS, I've discovered a couple of things . . .

1. Jensen Ackles has apparently ruined me for my previous huge, resource-consuming actor crush.

2. I still find Garett Maggart's hands to be amazingly beautiful.

That is all.

Monday was very windy. Like "Auntie Em! Auntie Em! Toto! Toto!" windy. Our recycling bin got blown across the yard and landed in a bush. Cans and bottles strewn all over. It didn't quite feel like tornado weather, though. Just windy.

We've got the windows and doors open today. The fresh air is wonderful *breathes deep*

Simple things in life make me happy. Like being able to use Dove soap. It's been so very, very long since I've been able to use an "over the counter" beauty bar on my face. Honestly, I can't remember how long it's been since I haven't had to take "special precautions." I love Dove's nectarine and white ginger beauty bar. The fragrance is wonderful, and the lather is rich and smooth. It's kinda silly how happy it makes me.

I've also discovered that I can wear regular lip glosses and lipsticks again. A few years back, I developed a really bad reaction to anything but Wild'Erb lip balm. And I'd have to wear that under the one kind of Mary Kay lipstick I could wear. But recently I've been wearing a L'Oreal lipstick I got at Sundance with no trouble, and the Sephora freebee I got hasn't caused a reaction either. And I've been wearing Bonnie Bell lip gloss. Seriously. Simple, everyday things, but I so enjoy them.

The Amish deli we frequent had Texas sheet cake for sale yesterday. It's been so long since I've had Texas sheet cake, I couldn't resist. Yum!

October seems to be getting away from me. I haven't yet gotten out my harvest spice candle that I always burn this time of year. We haven't bought our pumpkins yet. I've only made two pies, and one batch of pumpkin bread (and that was from a mix), and no Halloween cookies yet. It's been uncommonly warm (to this Mid-Westerner) for this time of year. And I have no idea what I'm going to wear to the Halloween party next week.

I wanted to post last night, but I was feeling kind of mellow and not in the mood to spend a great deal of time on-line.

I always feel mellow and relaxed after belly dancing. It just . . . tends to put me in a pretty good headspace.

Geo and I are starting a country line dance class next week. Should be a lot of fun.

Autumn is in the air. Soon in will be time for pumpkin recipes. YUM!

Health-wise, I think I might have mentioned that we've reached a plateau on the bebe-making efforts. The diagnostics are done, and I've been on a familiar cycle of meds that the doc says I can continue on. Anything more aggressive would cost money we simply can't shell out.

I'm particularly pleased with the fact that my complexion as stayed clear. I've still got scars from the past several years, but those can be dealt with, with tricks of make-up.

People tell me I look like I'm losing weight. The scales, however, does not. So . . . looking good is just as important as what the scales says, right?

Watched The Goonies last night with George. The theater foundation is going to be showing it as a free-to-the-public outdoor movie next month. It's a fun adventure for kids. Came out in 1985 and stars a very young Sean Astin, long before he was a hobbit. (Back when I knew him as John Astin's son.)

Having a Tupperware party tomorrow. Only about 3 people are coming, but it should be very laid back that way.

Two more days until NEW SHOW!

The CBS soap opera on which I was raised, As the World Turns, aired their final episode today.

A lot of stars got their start. (Please note: The caption that accompanies this article is incorrect. The actor posing with Meg Ryan is Scott Bryce, who played Craig Montgomery for several years.)

It was one of CBS's mainstays. (The schedule went: The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful, ATWT, Guiding Light.

I did this meme just shy of two years ago. Given that my f-list has changed a bit, and there's been two years in the meantime, I think it's time to revisit the meme.

What has surprised you the most about me (if anything) since beginning to read my lj? Was anything completely unexpected or have I always fit the picture of me you have in your head?

I usually consider myself pretty easy to read, if one is paying attention. Yes? No? Am I a riddle wrapped inside an enigma wrapped inside a taco? Or am I totally lacking in any mysterious mystique whatsoever?

Today on the way home from church, we stopped at a Sheetz to fill up the gas tank. I went in to get Geo some pop for the ride home, and what did they have in the case?


I haven't seen Faygo in years! It was one of the standard soda pops that we had in the fridge during the summer when I was growing up.

And not only did they have Faygo, they had pineapple Faygo. One of my favorites!

Well, I had to get a bottle. And it tasted like summertime growing up. (It also reminded me of pineapple Dum-Dums.)
feliciakw: (Jensen promo)
. . . to download something before its official release.

Which is silly, because if Jensen were not involved in the project, it wouldn't even be on my radar.

As it is? All the great reviews that Batman: Under the Red Hood is getting is making me very anxious to see this movie. Seriously. Cannot wait.

You're Donna Noble!

Oi! Wotch it, Martian boy! The Doctor thinks he can spout all kinds of ridiculous technobabble and 'Last Time Lord Angst' at you just because he's from outer space, huh? Well, you're not having any of it! You've got a heart of gold and a will of iron, and you're a rather boggling combination of a romantic idealist and a staunch realist. But you never let logical paradoxes get to you; you prefer to shoehorn the universe into a little box of your own perception. More often than not, it fits... probably because the universe is too intimidated to argue!
