i didn't think it was going to happen any time soon. it usually alternates between summer & fall and the last one was in jan. & feb. 2018 (according to wikipedia)

no sure i'm all that interested in this one as it is contestants from CBS' reality shows. but it's on the DVR list and i will reserve judgement until after watching the first episode.

a few months ago i posted, wondering why i've been seeing so many designer bags lately. well i've solved part of the mystery, specifically (possibly) i see so much coach stuff.

i discovered the coach outlet the other day that not far north of me. so that's where some of this might be coming from.

burberry should being doing this instead of burning stuff that doesn't sale (although they're supposed to be stopping that) to "preserve its reputation of exclusivity." joke's on them, i see their stuff on shopgoodwill all of the time.

in other designer sighting news; i saw my first kate spade bag last week. a couple of weeks before christmas i saw a woman with a small bag for one of the KS stores that she was stuffing into a small box, so someone got a wallet, or phone cover for christmas or a birthday.

I overheard that my job's pediatric clinic is running out of books and there's very little room in the budget (we are a community health center and are publically funded!) to buy more books. So, without the knowledge of the pediatric clinic, as I want to give their incredibly stressed supervisory staff and the patients a really great surprise, I'm organizing a little book drive.

If you have any books in your home that are:

appropriate for English or Spanish speaking kids

who are the ages of 3 - 17 years old

in as new, fine or very good condition (good condition possible, but we will need to discuss exactly what isn't in very good condition about it)

that you don't want in your home anymore

Could you consider giving them to our pediatric clinic? I am broke as all get out, and not able to pay for anything, so I'm asking for people to donate the shipping costs (to NYC) as well out of the goodness of your hearts. All of our patients have some kind of mental health issue and many have chronic illnesses as well. Our books are used in the waiting room and in therapy sometimes, but the most important thing about the books is that kids who love a book can take it home.

but i was going though my "pointing" tag, thinking to reduce it some (spoiler: did not do as much as i hoped) & in the process found that all of those texts from ____ things are inactive. except for one [tumblr.com profile] textsfromthe-avengers

i haven't checked it out in a long time, but found some knew stuff that i keep trying to imagine actors' voices for. so if you have a LOT of time to kill check it out.

also, some time ago i found [twitter.com profile] textsfromthe4077th (don't think i posted it) it appears to be defunct now, but they have some good ones too that i keep trying to imagine actors' voices for.

Deep Space Nine is described as “dark,” “edgy,” and “the black sheep” of the Star Trek family – a show that did not fit in Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future. 20 years after it left the airwaves, fans all over the world continue to watch Deep Space Nine with the same affection they feel for the other Star Trek series.

Through extensive interviews with cast and creators, show footage presented in HD for the first time anywhere, and brand-new animated storyboards showing what could have been and what still might be, directors Ira Steven Behr (showrunner of the original series) and David Zappone (Star Trek docs The Captains and For the Love of Spock), bring you What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, an in-depth look at this beloved show, its fans, and its ongoing appeal to Trekkies of all ages.

This one-night event will include an exclusive two-sided poster (11x17, limited quantities) as well as a roundtable discussion on the making of the documentary.

from amazon;

When Carrie Fisher discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved—plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naiveté, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Before her passing, her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon was indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a teenager with an all-consuming crush on her costar, Harrison Ford.

With these excerpts from her handwritten notebooks, The Princess Diarist is Fisher’s intimate and revealing recollection of what happened on one of the most famous film sets of all time—and what developed behind the scenes. Fisher also ponders the joys and insanity of celebrity, and the absurdity of a life spawned by Hollywood royalty, only to be surpassed by her own outer-space royalty. Laugh-out-loud hilarious and endlessly quotable, The Princess Diarist brims with the candor and introspection of a diary while offering shrewd insight into one of Hollywood's most beloved stars.


more kind & genital than shockaholic, this book is mainly "i accidentally starred in one of the biggest movies of all time & (sort of) accidentally had an affair with my marred co-star.

and you'd think that the behind-the-scenes crew would want to stay close to home & have dinner with their families when they could. but no, most would rather be on location, getting on location Per diem & trying to hook-up with the locals.

it also goes into how weird it is to make personal appearances & sign stuff (which she called "lap dances") and was honest in saying she was doing it for the money.

R.I.P ms. fisher

i don't think i've ever had an NCIS: NOLA dream before in the five-ish years the show as been on. i've had dreams about scott bakula, but that doesn't count.

anyway, it was inspired by recent episodes because it had something to do with hannah's latest mess. there was a box with a bunch of junk & tree electronic devices of some sort in like evidence bags that she needed. but some other agency (FBI? CIA? NSA? IRS?) came and took two, but missed one for some reason.

i took that one & slipped it into pride's suit jacket pocket when the other agency people weren't looking. not much more happened other than some flirting with pride.

yes, it's that time again were everything gets messed up for the sake of some BS thing that; 1. should've never been implemented & 2. should be discontinued.

most electronics will do the time change automatically.

some bboards have an option for daylight saving time, just look in your settings for how the date & time is set up.

there's a scene where they're chasing after the bad guy's henchman in an abandoned parking garage.
lasalle picks up gregorio, who was after him on foot, in a car. as they go down the ramps, i think is this a tokyo drift reference? (lucas black was in the fast & the furious: tokyo drift in '05)

gregorio then says something like "your getting too close." (meaning the walls) lasalle says: "i know what i'm doing." i'm like: it is a reference.

just outside the parking garage lasalle slides, dare i say drifts, into the running henchman. gets out of the car & says: "yeah. i still got it." *facepalm* even the car he was using looked like the kind of car they use for that.

to be honest, i'd rather have star trek references. i mean you have a trek captain as the star & a producer, lavar burton directs episodes & guest stared. tim russ guest stared once, but the only reference i can recall is sebastian's phone ringtone being the TNG theme.

👦🏻🧙🏻‍♂️👓⚡ & ✨🔮 (The Philosopher's Stone) couldn't find a rock or stone.

👦🏻🧙🏻‍♂️👓⚡ & 🏠🤫 (The Chamber of Secrets) the closest to chamber or room is a house.

👦🏻🧙🏻‍♂️👓⚡ & 🧔🏻🚓🏛 (The Prisoner of Azkaban) the closest thing to prisoner i could work out.

👦🏻🧙🏻‍♂️👓⚡ & 🍷🔥 (The Goblet of Fire)

👦🏻🧙🏻‍♂️👓⚡ & 🏅🦅🔥 (The Order of the Phoenix) the closest thing to a phoenix is an eagle on fire.

👦🏻🧙🏻‍♂️👓⚡ & ➗🆎🤴🏻 (The Half-Blood Prince)

👦🏻🧙🏻‍♂️👓⚡ & ☠✏🧥💍 (The Deathly Hallows) the closest thing to a wand & a cloak are a pencil (it's wood) & a coat

saw an episode of how it's made that had a segment on something called vinobrew.

it's a mix of red wine 🍷, cold-brew coffee ❄☕ & beer 🍺.

the guys involved looked like hipsters 🧔🏻👓.

and they mix the stuff buy taste. they mix a little of each thing in a pitcher, taste it & if they like it they write down the percentages of each thing & then mix up a big batch.

see my last update for more info

i've read 15 books on 17 US presidents (one covered something on 3) & it's slow going. no only are books on booklender hard to find, but this is not a very interesting subject.

when i told my brother that he said: "there are only 4 or 5 that are interesting, that's why you hear so much about them. on one cares about the rest."

archersangel: (food)
i like cats. 💙 🐱

i do not like coffee. 🚫 ☕

these two subjects are from [personal profile] sara's list of topics for frivolous febuary. but they're just suggestions & are not mandatory.

archersangel: (birthday)

1. Do you make up a dinner plan for the coming week?

no.

2. Do you make up a shopping list and stick to it when shopping?
yes & i try to.

3. What is one thing that you always buy, but never put down on a list?
i don't know, bread?

4. Is there anything that you always think you are out of and come home with it to discover you already have a year’s supply on hand?

5. Do you get your groceries delivered?
no. like someone said somewhere, can you trust these people to pick out a ripe mango?

see what others said over here.

i believe that it was samantha carter in the sg-1 episode ripple theory who said; the theory holds that anything that can happen, will happen. if not in this reality, than in another.

if you believe in that theory, then you most likely believe that for every decision there is a reality/earth where the other choice (or one of the other choices) has happened. for example, there is a reality/earth where tom selleck is indiana jones & some other guy was magnum p.i.. maybe kevin costner, who knows?

with me so far?

i recalled that chelsea field, scott bakula's wife, was considered for the role of captain janeway*. so IF there is a reality/earth where she got the role, and in said reality/earth scott bakula was still captain archer and the show got 7 seasons, it follows that in some reality/earth SOMEWHERE, captain janeway is married to captain archer.

and that kind of blows my mind.
