SG-1 almost-end-of-season 8 SPOILERS )

I had a FANTASTIC Christmas! Had supper on the 24th with my mother and sister, without any fights, and then on the 25th I had lunch with mom, my boyfriend, my sister and her boyfriend, two aunts, my uncle, and two cousins. We had all sorts of delicious food - my boyfriend actually asked my mother if she had made a buffet for someone who then had it cancelled, because she cooks divinely and there was so much food - and all sorts of family jokes and old stories. It was fun and everything that Christmas should be. :)

I hope everyone had a great Christmas - and thanks to everyone who wished the same to me and my family!

I feel confident about New Year's Eve as well - actually, about the entire next year! ;)

ETA: Just watched the last couple of episodes from season 8!

Spoilers for Moebius! )

Now I'm divided between watching season 9, SGA season 2 or sleeping.

Hum....I guess I should go to bed. :P

OH, one last thing, I remembered what I was going to mention before - Rya'c is BORING, can he be gone already???
Quick post to wish everybody on my flist a Merry Christmas! I hope all Christmas truly means reverberate throughout next year in all your lives! Happiness, family, love, all that!

And, as I have done in every entry lately, I must speak of SG-1...and this time, also, SGA!

Cut for Tati's sake! SG-1 )

Stargate Atlantis! )

Now, off to finish SG-1 Season 8 before Christmas supper! Only then I intend to finish SGA S1!
I watched SG-1 season 7 up to episode 14 - most of it during the past couple of saturdays with [ profile] dtissagirl and [ profile] jujubinha, and I have to say two three four things:

1) I missed Daniel SO MUCH on season 6!
2) Poor Jonas...loved by a Goa'uld? Hey, that sounds like a corny romance novel!
3) Sam, COME ON! Grace is your daughter with JACK and she wanted to tell you that you two have GOT TO BE TOGETHER!!! Very cute and emotional episode, though I didn't cry. I like Sam.
4) I LOVE JANET! I do have a tendency to like characters that are doctors, but hers is special. AND he told that alien who was possessing Daniel's body that she would have him back, so, GO JANET! XD

The last couple of weekends were half fun, half tiring - saturdays were fun because were spent at [ profile] dtissagirl's house watching SG-1 and FARSCAPE but sundays weren't because I spent them working - especially yesterday because it made me miss [ profile] priwskywalker's birthday party - again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Priw!

Christmas is next week. AND I haven't bought any gift for anyone. GAH! ¬¬"

And the week after Christmas is New Year's Eve. So, that's a nice prompt to evaluate this past year - especially since I don't know when I will be able to come to the internet, let alone post at LJ, again!

This was a rough year.

I had some great things happening to me, like finally getting to be on the medical residence I really wanted all along, but I also had nasty things happening in my life. People I knew died and/or got very sick, among them my future-to-be father-in-law, who FINALLY seems to be fairing better, but still has much on his plate to deal with, like hemodialisis.

I once again was reminded that I'm a fool who thinks everyone is good and fair but life isn't fair, let alone good, and people can pretend to be your friends just to get whatever it is that they want and then ditch you. But at least that served - I hope - to help me learn from my mistakes.

However, even with all that was bad, it was a good year. I realized I need to focus on who and what give me something back in return - like work, since I need the money to buy my oh-so-dreamed apartment. My family and boyfriend are also in my list of priorities, because I love them to pieces - yes, even when my mother nitpicks about one thing or another - and they are the only ones who will forever be by my side when and if I need them.

I just know, more fiercely than ever before, that I love who I am, that I love my family and my boyfriend [ profile] rjann, that I love the career I chose, and that I NEVER wanted nor I will ever want to be someone else.

I love my life.

Yes, it needs some improvements here and there, but nothing is ever perfect - unless you live in a fairy tale. And if anyone tells you differently, it's a lie.

Here, a toast to a better 2008 than 2007 was! Enjoy Christmas, concentrate on what it truly means, and prepare to a blasting 2008!

First of all, belated thanks go to [ profile] julie_weasley and [ profile] priwskywalker for their Christmas cards. I was not too Christmas-ey this year, that's why I didn't send any cards. Sorry guys, I will try to be more excited next year.

I know I've been MIA this past few days, but first, it was Christmas, although a quiet - and thankfully also peaceful - one spend home with my mother and sister, and then, there was book reading.

Since there was a movie adaptation of Eragon going out this Christmas, I decided to buy the book and read it a few weeks ago. Midway through it I got bored by it, but eventually finished, saw the movie and bought book 2, Eldest.

The book is NOT OMGTHATWASAWESOME and it's NOT a total FAILURE either, it's just...ok. That probably means a lot, becase as [ profile] rjann always says, I either LOVE stuff or HATE them, and this was one of the few things that was simply ok. Yes, it's a fantasy book, and one with dragons, but there was a few things that annoyed me. Mainly, the fact that it feels to me as a copy of various other fandoms/stories/books/movies. Come on! It's like reading a LOTR fanfic! AND I have never read any of those famous dragons books, but I'm sure if any of you have - [ profile] starpiper you read some, didn't you? - you could point out similarities to those as well! Just read the following (incomplete, for sure) list and tell me if you agree with me or not!

Similarites between Eragon, LOTR and SW. Spoilers up to the middle of book 2, Eldest )

The second book is better than the first - at least so far - because *gasp* of Roran's side story. I love secondary characters! And his, Katrina's, and Carvahall's story are very interesting!

And the movie was enjoyable - they shortened Eragon and Brom's journey, which to me was the boring part with they going around in circles and solving nothing, and I liked what they did with spoiler inside ) but not so much what they did with Murtagh. And Arya is completely off character. But it's entertaining. :)
