Well, according to Alias Media, the Alias season finale is currently scheduled for the 23rd of May. Just when my exams start - oh joy!

In other news, went to see Hidalgo yesterday, and yes, I cried. But not for the reason that I thought. It was one of those films that you can't help crying at (although my flatmate didn't, but she doesn't tend to cry at films). Seeing as I cry when I watch horse races, then I was bound to whilst watching a film about a horse race!

Although, [livejournal.com profile] kyizi completely ruined my crying buzz, because she was bouncing up and down in her seat at the end of the race, whilst I was wanting to cry with the emotion of it. It's a little hard to cry when the person sitting next to you is bouncing and clapping her hands like a 5-year-old (yes, that's how [livejournal.com profile] kyizi acts when watching a film, and don't deny it!). Still, I got my crying at the end.

It made me in the mood to watch Due South, and although Season 2 has been dispatched, it's not arrived yet! *wail* I want it! Watched Season 3 Stargate instead, and *wail* for Martouf. I love him!

Also spent about 2 and half hours sorting out the Astrosoc bank account today with the help of [livejournal.com profile] loriel_eris. Still have to do the cashbox accounts. Eek! They're going to be the trouble.

I also haven't actually started Wood & Wild Chapter 14, but I have been thinking about it, so I know what's going to be in it, which is more than can be said of about 3 days ago!

I'd better go and get some studying done now, since I haven't done any today, instead sorting out accounts. Grr!

Grr! Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] corngirl_jo mentioning Due South, I've been craving it over the weekend. This led to a search on the Internet for DVDs, and lo and behold, Season 1 and 2 have been released earlier this year. Naturally, I had to buy them. For some unknown reason, Season 3 has been delayed, so I don't know when I'm going to get that.

And Season 1 isn't in stock, so that's awaiting stock, which means I could be waiting *ages*. It took forever for The Faculty to arrive. Season 2 is ready for dispatch, so I'll be getting that in the next couple of days! It's a good job I've seen them all before, otherwise I'd be watching them in the wrong order!

In other, DVD-related news, I am now in the possession of Season 3 Stargate SG-1, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] loriel_eris. Huzzah!

Also, no studying tonight, as am going to see Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind with [livejournal.com profile] kyizi tonight - she managed to get preview tickets. Will also be going to see Hidalgo sometime this week. Although, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] kyizi's suspiciously non-responsive reply to my comment that my flatmate thought it might end badly, ie: the horse may die, I have a feeling that I'm going to bawl my eyes out at it! Or else, I'm going to be expecting the horse to drop dead at any moment! *g* The only thing that will keep me going is the fact that Viggo bought it, so technically it's not dead. That's assuming, of course, that it does die! It may not! And I don't want anyone to let me know!

RE: the music. I *swear* that this is just a coincidence!

Hello everyone, again!

Some of you have checked out [livejournal.com profile] kyizi's new Stargate layout for her LJ and liked it might want to take a look at my desktops. (As far as I've figured out, you should just be able to "right-click, save target as" on them, but let me know if you've snerched.) She gave me her layout to play with and see what desktops I could come up with. She also gave me some screencaps, but since there wasn't much room on the USB drive, I only got the ones she took for her icons and various others from Nightstalkers. Because of this, the desktop is a little limited. There are two versions, because I couldn't decide on the background colour.

Jonas desktops )

I've also done a Sark desktop that I'm very proud of. I got the idea for the theme just as I was out the shower (it just randomly came to me!) and the layout was basically inspired partly by [livejournal.com profile] _projectgalem's Harry/Hermione desktop (at least, I think it was hers! If it wasn't, then it's [livejournal.com profile] stevie_jane's. Once you see my desktop, you'll know which one I'm talking about!) and by my current desktop taken from DA's website (I've changed it from Elijah Wood). Okay, I've just realised that I'm lying, my current desktop didn't come from DA's site (but the guest desktops have been updated and there are some very pretty ones there) it came from one of you posting it!

Sark - Still Waters Run Deep )

It's weird, [livejournal.com profile] kyizi and I were reminiscing about Photoshop, and I was remembering when I didn't know what to do with layers, and the only thing I used Photoshop was for doing cool effects on photos. I ignored layers totally. Then [livejournal.com profile] notasalmon came along and showed me what to do. Now I'm making desktops which have lots of layers. (I think my new Sark one is the most impressive - it's got about 25 layers, plus colour overlays and other such stuff!)

And the time I'm spending in Photoshop is getting more productive - it didn't actually take me that long to do my Sark layout. It would have taken me days to do it not long ago. Saying that, the Jonas desktop took over 2 hours! And I've only added 3 photos and some text! Argh! Although, I had to do some fancy stuff to get the symbol for Earth, since [livejournal.com profile] kyizi hadn't given it to me! Admittedly, Photoshop wasn't behaving itself when I tried putting frames around the smaller photos, but I didn't expect it to take over 2 hours, otherwise I wouldn't have started at midnight!

Anyway, I'm off to see what's happening outside my own little life! *g*

Okay, I've re-recorded Ribbit, and it sounds unbelievably better now, so I've updated the link accordingly. Don't worry, the previous links should still work, since I simply replaced the file. Also, I was thinking, if people were interested, and hadn't run away screaming at the sound of my voice, of possibly reading aloud the whole Bad Wigs series, with [livejournal.com profile] auburnnothenna's permission, of course. :)

Also, I've updated my fic, Wood & Wild at my Yahoo!Group, and also on Schnoogle and Fanfiction.net, for those of you who are interested!

And, now I'm going home to blitz Stargate-SG1, because [livejournal.com profile] loriel_eris has lent me the film and the first season of the series. [livejournal.com profile] kyizi and I were watching Season 6 a couple of days ago, and I had a sudden urge to go and watch the film (I've seen it before) and then I wanted to watch the series from the beginning, since I have only seen random episodes. So yay! Although I won't get any work done!

Also, I've discovered that I can record from tape to my computer, no problem. Which is fantastic because it means that my old copy of The Hobbit, read by Nicol Williamson, I can put on CD and then not have to worry about the tapes finally dying. Hurray!

Right, I'm going now, to play with the new Harry Potter trailer that [livejournal.com profile] loriel_eris gave me, and photos I've been downloading, and then to watch Stargate! Huzzah! *g*

(That's if I can stay awake long enough - I didn't get my full 8 hours sleep last night. Although in a way, this is a good thing, as it means that I will possibly get back into normal people's routine, as opposed to a vampire's!)
