Save the Lost City!

How much do MGM suck?? Very much so is the correct answer! We’re only a few episodes into the new Season 5 of Stargate Atlantis (which is going brilliantly by the way) and we find out that they’re cancelling the show!

Suffice to say I spent a good 15 minutes ranting and raving and generally kicking things in my frustration at stupid greedy corporations!

Basically the ‘powers that be’ decided to drop the very sucessful and brilliant Stargate Atlantis to start a new show “Stargate Universe” where a group of people get onto this Ancient ship that seeded Stargates throughout that galaxy and find that they’re stuck on it with no way to get home. Hmmm…. that plot seems kind of familiar … people stuck thousands of light-years from home … on a ship … maybe it’s Robert Picardo’s sudden appearance in Atlantis but that sounds to me a lot like the plot from Star Trek Voyager!!  

I don’t know about you but do we really want another Voyager????

What the hell is wrong with the existing show? Absolutely nothing! Now all we’re gonna get is a measly few films – did we ask for that? Err.. No … didn’t think so! Argh! Atlantis is my all-time favourite show – I even turf my family out of the sitting room for an hour just so I can watch it!

MGM you seriously suck!!

If this annoys you as much as it does me then there’s a petition site:

They’re even planning to send lemons! Brilliant. Fingers and toes crossed that it’ll make a difference.

Eeeeeeep … how much more scary are Daleks speaking German?!!

How brilliant was the last ep of Doctor Who!! Ooooo I got so excited I ended up watching it about 3 times! I love the humour between him and Donna – can’t believe she’s gone now she made such a brilliant assistant and I loved the humour between her and the Doctor especially in the last episode – Ha, Wizard!

I’m sorry. It’s just… I react to certain doom in a certain way. It’s a bad habit.

So I was trawling YouTube cos I was bored the other day and came across these two excellent Atlantis vids. The one above is a promo for the series which I thought was neat and the one below is some guy rapping about wanting to be on the show! Definately chuckle-worthy… and the thing is that he’s actually won a cameo on the show!!! How cool is that?

Enjoy 😀

Went to the flicks to watch ‘Invasion’ last night … man was that a good film! Really creepy when everyone started turning into aliens and they were just standing still and staring!

It’s right up my alley – I luv all sci-fi films and this one is based on the novel ‘The Body Snatchers’ which is quite similar to another book I read called ‘The Bidden’ -cept in that one the aliens ate peoples faces to take them over!!

I have to say that the highlight of the whole film was definately watching Daniel Craig … mmmm… he can snatch my body any time he wants!!!! 😉

“I want to ride my bicycle”

Ok so I nearly got crushed by a bus today! I was happily cycling along – minding my own business and doing my bit for the environment when this behemoth bus comes speeding past me inches away from my handlebars! I was soooo scared it took considerable self control not to dive into the hedge for safety!!

Not only did it scare the bee-jeezus out of me but then it pulled straight in front of me to get into the ‘bus stop’ and I nearly went up the back of it … which would have been seriously more detrimental to me than the bus! I’m sure I would have hardly made a dent, cept for in my nose!

Ok, so I know that everyone complains about bikes on the road (even I do when I’m driving) but at least I have the courtesy to give them enough space – though I drive a mini which is hardly all that scary looking especially since it’s decorated with butterfly decals! 🙂

Lol,

I’m getting really tired off nearly being flattened by people who drive like the four horsemen of the Apocalypse are on their tails! In fact I’ve started cycling as close to the centre line as I dare just so that they have to give me a wide berth! Ha, take that you silly people who can’t read the green cross code!

Cone-head

So today I got to clean out the suply cupboard at mum and dad’s cafe and I found half a box of broken ice-cream cones … jack-pot!! Ok so some of them were going a bit stale but most were all right, so I sat like a little hamster in the back scoffing pieces of cone! Yay. hehe.

Do you know what though? … I’ve actually lost four pounds in the last few months and I don’t even know how! I mean I’m not the kind of person who would go on a diet .. I don’t have the will-power to keep away from sweet things! 😀 I mean right at this moment I’m writing this blog and singing along to Kerrang in between mouthfulls of dark chocolate digestives! (“’cause I see you lying next to me, with words I thought I’d never speak, awake and unafraid, asleep or dead.”)

 Don’t worry though, I’m not one of those people who is obsessed with their weight – far from it. I’m like 5 foot 2″ and curvy but I’m happy that way, I actually pity these girls who live on celery so they can be a size zero! Eurgh… come on, there’s plenty more to life!

Ooooo Dragonforce just came on…. man there is something definately hot about guys with long hair! Yum, the Chinese guy is soooo the hottest! Hmmm… I’m being distracted …. oh well it’s a nice distraction :p

Virgo’s

Hey what does everyone think of my new jazzed-up blog? Cool huh?

Anyway … so the reason for this post is that I got one of those silly chain e-mails … you know those ones that say stupid things like “if you don’t send this on you will get seven years bad luck and never find your true love” blah blah blah .. hmmm … that might actually explain some things!

So anyway this e-mail was about zodiac and it actually had the perfect description of a Virgo (one of which I am) which reminds me that its actually only 22 days till I’m 21!!! Eeeeekkkkk!

So here it is:

VIRGO – The Perfectionist
>   >Dominant in relationships. Conservative. Always wants the last word.
>   >Argumentative. Worries. Very smart. Dislikes noise and chaos. Eager.
>   >Hardworking. Loyal. Beautiful. Easy to talk to. Hard to please. Harsh.
>   >Practical and very fussy. Often shy. Pessimistic

Sounds about right, huh? Who knew chain-mails could be so accurate … though I’m sure by now I have at least 49 years of bad luck to look forward to … lol

It’s a city not a yo-yo

Yes folks it’s finally almost time to strap yourselves in for another thrilling season of Stargate Atlantis. Ooooh … I’m so excited that I can hardly contain myself. I think I’m going to need a new drool bucket and a diaper change!! Lol.

Sky One has confirmed that they will be airing the first season four episode (which follows on from the cliff-hanger where after escaping from the replicator beam by flying the city they find themselves stuck in space with limited power and no planets or stargates near them … Eeeeep!).

It will be aired on: Tuesday October 9th at 8pm on Sky One and Sky OneHD … YAY!!

There’s some seriously good story arcs coming up – Teyla pregnant, Carter taking over from Weir, finally some Sheppard back-story and a new mysterious race called the ‘Travellers’ . Coooool, it’s going to be great. I’m still thinking the wraith Michael should be coming back -especially now he has a bug army!! I can’t wait 😀

P.s. If you haven’t already been to see the ‘Bourne Ultimatum’ you HAVE to go see it! It’s seriously awesome – we were sat down the front near the speakers and I’m completely deafened from hearing gunfire and smashing glass!!

Rain rain go away

Eurgh, I can’t believe its raining … again. Two weeks of sunshine and now this! Grrr…. I had to walk home from the cafe today just when a huge torrential shower started … yup I have the greatest timing ever!!

*Pouts* I had a teeny little umbrella (you know, one of those “fits in your handbag” style ones) and so you can imagine that I was soaked through by the time I got home. All is well again though because I’ve had a nice big mug of tea and some dark chocolate digestives… yum!

Hmmm…. I’ve just realised how random this post is … oh well never mind….

Ooooooh yeah, I’ve just seen a preview on the net for Stargate Atlantis season 4 and it looks amazing!! Yay… oooo can’t wait till September!

Dude, I just found a marzipan bar – my day is now officially made, hell it can snow now for all I care … sweet sweet chocolate and marzipan!! mmmmmmmmmmm….
