Thanks to [ profile] chickadilly look what I found out! I don't know if I should be amused, thrilled or actually SCARED by it! XD

However, since I have this UNGODLY muscle pain and headache since yesterday - it's gotta be a nasty flu, it can't just be my allergics acting up - this actually put a smile on my face. :P

But what really seems to be cheering me up - my loving and funny boyfriend not withstanding - are four things:

1) the fact that now I have SCI FI CHANNEL! YES, I can watch dubbed SG-1 now! XD Too bad they don't seem to have any Farscape reruns! :(

2) Dr. Horrible's saga. It's so funny and quirky and great! Really, I can sense the nerd inside joke citations list growing! "PhD of Horribleness" is going to be right there on the nerd citation list, togheter with "May the Force be with you"! And is it wrong of me to be cheering for the villain instead of the cheesy superhero?

3) Another thing, my boyfriend's brother is in town with his family and his kids, a three-year old girl and a one year-old boy are SO CUTE! They are eletric, and cute, and laugh at whatever silly thing you do, and the boy eats with his left hand while holding the spoon with his right hand, and the girl keeps saying "games, games" whenever she wants to play with her uncle's Wii - and since he was working, I played with her and she was so happy and SMART - she is only three and managed to play Wario Smooth Moves! AND she never had played any video game before! Her uncle - my boyfriend - says she has the "gift" of the family for playing games. :P Her brother warmed right up to me, much quicker than usual with him according to his mom. We spent part of the afternoon with them playing Wii - actually, the boy only watched, he is too young, and he prefered to chase the dog around the room! The dog was actually afraid of him! LOL! The girl gave me a hug and a kiss yesterday before I left, and I'm sad that I'm so sick I can't stay close to them for fear of giving them my germs.

4) Also, THE DARK KNIGHT tomorrow night! Sure, my sister and her lucky boyfriend managed to see it last MONDAY, but...I get to see it with a real nerd crowd! ;)

I finished it. All ten seasons. Actually, I finished it a bit over one week ago, but didn't have the time to post about it.

The End of SG-1 - Season 10 )

The Ark of Truth )

As for SGA...yes, I finished season 2 and started season 3, but I'm way too tired now to post any kind of coherent review about it. But it's been good so far! Even thrilling in some parts! ;)
Hi! No, I'm not dead - yet, because I've been trying really hard to end up dead, what with working 48h straight on weekends...*sigh*

I've sat in front of this computer for a quite a few times this past weeks, but didn't have any disposition to write anything, because the beginning of the year was quite controversial to me, since some great things happened but also some terrible things.

Bad things )

However, I can't deny that my life has been good - and I feel guilty for being so blessed when people are having so much pain to endure.

Good things )

Ok, I think I talked WAY to much about my life right now! I've been very thoughtful about it, and I if I already talk too much when I'm not fully thinking, imagine when I AM thinking?! :P Sorry...

Anyway, about totally superfluous things now, before I cut my wrists! ;P

SGA S1 and beginning of S2 )

SG-1 beginning of Season 9 )
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!

Yep, more SG-1!

Just one quick comment - ok, not so quick:

YAY! DANIEL IS BACK! Yes, I did rush through season 6 just to have him back as quickly as possible. Not that I didn't like Jonas, he is cute, but he is not Daniel. So...YAY, DANIEL!

On another subject:

YAY, H/G!!!! :D And word about R/H!!! :DDD

Last friday I finished season 4 of SG-1! There are episodes that are priceless - like Divide and Conquer, 2010, and a few others - and the season finale was at the very least audacious! I mean, they actually blew up a star to create a supernova!

During the weekend, apart from 36h working, I managed to watch two episodes from season 5 - and arrived to the conclusion that Teal'c is boooooooooooooooring! I love the trio Jack, Sam and Daniel - I love trios by rule - but Teal'c just...bores me. And the fact that Jack/Sam never becomes a reality in the show makes me sad...

And in a Farscape related note, look at the T-shirt my boyfriend made for himself and I stole from him because *I* was the one who introduced him to Farscape for me!

Long time no post! :D

Well, you know the, work, WORK! :D But I'm happy with my life, I wouldn't trade it with anyone else! ;)

What have I done apart from work? Hum, let's see...I've watched SG-1! I'm up to episode 3x11 now! Yeah, I watched almost an ENTIRE season since my last post! Here goes what I have to say so far in bullet points:

- I still like the Tok'ra :P
- I LOVE the Asgard! The Fifth Race is one of my favorite episodes so far! :D
- 1969 was great! Hammond RULES! :D
- The 2nd season finale was not as agonizing as some finales I've seen *cofBSGSEASONONEcof* but it was a nice finale nonetheless. For a moment I was like "What? They are in the future?" but pretty soon I caught up and realized it could only be a Goa'uld squeme. And I was right! :P
- Why didn't they explain Daniel's new hair? Btw, he is SO MUCH BETTER with cropped hair! :D
- Fair Game was another nice episode, and once again, I LOVE THE ASGARD!
- Point of View was SOOO bittersweet! Poor AU!Sam...and I wonder what Sam thought when Jack kissed AU!Sam! Nice episode - plot wise and SHIPPER wise! XD Also? KOWALSKI! I love him! :)
- Yeah, I have to admit, I think I've become a Jack/Sam shipper. :P
- Finally, there were two things that made me fall totally crazy over Stargate: The Movie. A geek, AKA Daniel Jackson, saving the world, and the Daniel/Shau'ri relationship. This relationship had already being ruined in the tv series, but her death was sooooo anti-climatic! At least to me, I didn't like that episode. :(
- That said, I still love Daniel Jackson. Daniel, Sam and Jack are SOOOO the new trio of my life! In case you didn't know, old trios are: Luke, Leia and Han; Harry, Ron and Hermione. Still very important to me. I think now I have a trio of trios! XD *is lame*

I think that's it about SG-1 for now! :P

About Heroes I have much to say, but I will resume it in two things: 1) I think I've become a West/Claire shipper! :P and 2) Are they going to use the Luke Skywalker cliché? ;)

I have two good news!

First one, my boyfriend [ profile] rjann has finally finished Farscape and he liked it very much! He even recommended it to [ profile] ricardosolo and that's a great victory for me! :D Hehehe...and I think I deserve a plush DRD now for introducing him to the show! ;)

Second good news: Tomorrow I'm going to the Brazillian Infectious Diseases Congress at Curitiba, and I will be there for four days! I've never been to Curitiba but they say it's a beautiful city!

See you when I get back! ;)
First and foremost, thanks go to Tissa for making me a new LJ header - as much as I love Heroes the black was starting to annoy me, and I wanted a brighter layout.

And so, my wish for a new layout combined with my refuelled excitement with Farscape due mainly to so many people close to me who are FINALLY watching it - namely my boyfriend [ profile] rjann and a few friends like [ profile] weirdgirlie! - I have a brand new FARSCAPE layout! :D

OH, and I think some hard evidence that [ profile] rjann is really liking Farscape is the fact that he found out that Scorpius was no other than ADMIRAL TARKIN in Episode III! Possibly one of the very few highlights in those three poorly written movies. Next thing we know, we will find out that Delvians are related to Chiss! Well, at least Zahn is, in a way...XD *silly*

On the "catching up" ground re: SG-1. [ profile] wikkibird I'm still on season 2 of SG-1 because I had never watched it, nor the movie, until the end of last year, when I finally saw the movie and became completely NUTS about it.

Anyway, I watched up to episode 2.14 - my 2.15 file is corrupted! :( - and I have to say that I'm beginning to get really excited about it! Past doings are beginning to have consequences in the present - and more will have consequences in the future, I guess!

I finally watched both Tok'ra episodes, and I still like them! It was pretty obvious what would happen with Sam's father, but nevertheless it was a nice predicted twist.

But I do agree with Jack when it comes to Maybourne - I hate that guy's guts!

At last but not least, HEROES IS BACK! And I loved it! spoilers under the cut )

As for Prison Break...yeah, I watched both episodes but no, I don't think I will be following this series anymore...too far-fetched, and I miss Sarah!

( Sep. 20th, 2007 10:20 pm)
Yep, still more SG-1! Spoilers for Season 2 below - since the show is so old, does spoiler warnings still apply???

I've watched so far up to episode 2.09 from the series, and I have a few highlights - and one thing that bugged the HELL out of me!

First, the highlights!

1) I love Daniel! SPACE MONKEY! Nerd saving the world every. single. time! Ok, when it comes to battle, it's O'Neill who saves the day, but when it comes to mind, it's either Daniel or Sam - and Daniel always saves the day when it comes to translating or understanding some ancient culture, and he rocks for that! Like when he figured out the riddle at Thor's Hall - Sam only had to help him with the math, and remind him of Pi! ;) Plus, he still is very much in love with Shau'ri and stays with her even if the Goaul'd inside her could've killed him when she awoke! AND, he is cute! :P I love him - I also love Sam, I have to admit they are my two favorite characters so far! And, as someone said - I think it was [ profile] dtissagirl or [ profile] tatileite - Sam and Daniel are like brothers! Or should I say super brothers, like SUPERFRIENDS Zan an Jayna? "Super Gêmeos, Ativar!" XD LOL! *is silly*

2) Jolinar and the Tok'ra! Yes, I realize I haven't gotten to the two episodes dedicated to them - I'm watching as fast as I can to get to those episodes - but Jolinar's story was great! Can't wait to learn more about the Tok'ra! Great twist, adding a rebellion to the Goaul'd - though not totally new *cofstarwarscof* - but nice twist nevertheless! And the fact that he protected Sam, that he died to let her live, that now she can sense who is Jaffa and Goaul'd, and perhaps use Goaul'd "straps"? GREAT! :D OH, not related, but since we are speaking of Goaul'd...Heru'ur is more evil looking and menacing than Apophis! He should be their only villain, don't you think? ;)


Ok, now for the tiny little thing that bugged me - ok, maybe not that tiny.

WHY didn't they take Shau'ri to Thor's Hammer? Gairwyn said it was going to be rebuilt, after all! OH, and it's so unfair to Daniel and Shau'ri that she was pregnant of Apophis, and not Daniel himself! *snif*

Yeah, I know, those were actually TWO things that bugged me. OH, well.

Talk to you guys later!
I think I've been working far too much. This weekend I actually worked 36h straight! *is dead*

But all is for the greater good - to enlarge my economies, enabling me, in the (I hope) very near future, to buy a dream or two...*ahem*

Today [ profile] hgranado left for London. He is going to spend a few months up to a year there. I wish him all the luck and success a friend can wish to another friend. I will miss him, he was the one who introduced me to [ profile] rjann - yes, Rafael has him to blame for having to put up with me! XD - he is a great friend, a HUGE Star Wars fan, and the only other person I know who was born on February 28th - all the jabs directed to people who were born on this day - people think we are a mixture of quirky and infuriating sometimes - will be directed to me now. *sigh*

Last week - before the long weekend with the 36h of DOOM! - I managed to watch some more SG-1 episodes, and...I'm beginning to like this show!

I think the first episode that really got me interested was Enigma, with the planet Tollan - their leader is the serial killer from Saw! XD Not that I ever watched any of those movies, nor do I find them interesting, but weird connections always amuse me! Anyway, what I liked about this episode was the discussion - or rather, quite the obvious conclusion - that any technology that Earth would acquire could and would be used in war. Another thing I liked was that this was perhaps the first connection between episodes we had when the Nox came to help the Tollans - and those ALWAYS are fun, at least to me.

Solitudes...oh, that was wonderful! And, surprisingly - at least when it comes to me - not because of the shipper side of it, even though the "That is my sidearm" line was HIlarious! (ETA: Thanks for the warning, [ profile] dtissagirl!) I liked it because I did NOT see the whole "they really are on Earth" twist coming. I think it could be one of my favorites so far!

Tin Man was also great, again because of a twist - I did not see the whole "WE really are robots/cyborgs/androids" coming!

Still three or four episodes to go! Soon I think I will need SG-1 icons.
*cofcofRight[ profile] dtissagirl?cofcof* Daniel Jackson icons! *ahem*

OH, and [ profile] rjann has reached Farscape Season 2 and is really liking it! He is even commenting and recommending the series to other people - far away from me and my GLEEFUL nonsense talk about it! ;P AND he has reached the conclusion that he is, indeed, John Crichton. Only [ profile] rjann and Crichton can be in a frelling dead end and laugh their heads off! XD

Kum-bi-yah! See ya later!

( Aug. 27th, 2007 10:49 pm)
Yep, I've started to watch ANOTHER TV series - ANOTHER SCI FI TV series, LOL! XD

After a month dedicated to extra shifts (I worked almost every saturday!), finishing up work stuff, and studying for a test I had at my new residence - we have one every six months or so - I finally had a weekend off!

I spent most of it at [ profile] dtissagirl's place and watched SG-1 up until episode 15 from season one. [ profile] tatileite was also there, as well as [ profile] weirdgirlie and [ profile] jujubinha for a short period of time each. :)

I love nerds who save the future by being so damn smart. *coughDanielJacksoncough* I do have to admit I'm still not totally hyper over it, but they said the better is yet to come - probably like Farscape.

I do have to admit Jack has a very loveable sense of humour, and Sam is a very loveable character, and one we can easily relate to, but nerds with glasses and longish hair like Daniel Jackson - you hear that, [ profile] rjann? - are really my type! XD

I had to tune out Tissa and Tati jokes about poor Daniel :P but I had a blast this weekend! :D

[ profile] weirdgirlie I think you might have someone aiming for Daniel Jackson just like you! :P *runs and hides*

OH, but I haven't forgotten all my other obsessions! Hathor and Daniel reminded me in some scenes - ok, in just their kissing scene because most of her scenes were gross because of her "babies" - of Luke and Mara! XD

Now, back to annoying [ profile] rjann to watch Farcape - only one or two episodes for Huan Reaction!

( Sep. 20th, 2006 11:12 pm)

I watched the tv movie/pilot for SG-1 a few nights ago! And I loved it! Yes, there are a few couple of things that bothered me - the unnecessary nude scene, and those snake-like parasites - but all in all I loved it!

Jack is...well, Jack, typical militar, but with great character development. His regret and sorrow over his son, his worry and attachment with the children of Abydos - especially Skaara - all made for a nice character! I felt more for him in this than in the movie - the focus on the movie was on Daniel, not him, he was just the tough militar guy with nothing else to loose, and who had a suicide mission. They made him more three dimensional in the pilot, and showed more his feelings and motives.

I LOVED DANIEL! He is such an adorable geek! Michael Shanks is definitely prettier than James Spader - especially when I remember him old, fat, and AS A LAWYER in Boston Legal - and he nailed Daniel spot on! Very similar to the character in the movie, but also with characteristics of his own. And I love that he was with Sha'uri, but I saw coming beforehand what happened - the GOODBYE KISS, anyone? - and since I read some spoilers pertaining to the last SG-1 season and Aeryn Sun Vala, I think Sha'uri doesn't have a very long life in this show...and WHAT'S UP WITH THAT GIRL'S HAIR? It scared the living daylights out of me! I DEFINITELY prefer the movie Sha'uri!

The very first scene Sam appeared? LOVED IT! She is a militar, but she is also a astrophysics scientist GEEK! And she gets on Jack's nerves! AND THE UST IN THE VERY FIRST SCENE WAS GREAT!

I like Kowalski! "If we don't go back..." "We go after you to save your sorry a**es!" LOL! I was actually kinda mad at the end of the episode because of him, and Skaara, I hope both turn out ok...I hope!

And at last but not least...The MacGyver reference? - "It took us 15 years and three supercomputers to MacGyver a system for the gate on Earth." - And the LOOK and roll of eyes Richard Dean Anderson gave afterwards? PRICELESS!

It left me hoping there'll be at least ONE Farscape reference when Ben Browder and Claudia Black join the cast in the last few seasons! ;)

Btw, Claudia IS very lucky with the actors chosen to pair up with her characters! XD First Ben, now Michael...lucky girl! XD

Memes! I haven't done thos in a while...;) )

ETA: Take a look at THIS! We should definitely try to do something similar here, in Rio! :D
