More

Not much been going on. Been loafing around while I wait for Taylor/Cargill to call. I was supposed to start next Monday, but I haven't heard anything yet. Trying not to worry, but my last paycheck from the Daily is this Friday...after that, nada!

I've been watching a lot of Stargate SG1 on Netflix. Loving that! The feel of it changed in season 9 when Ben Browder took over for Richard Dean Anderson. I kind of like it a little better. But then I liked Farscape a lot, so I'm not surprised. I'm still warming up to Vala, her's is a harder character to read. She's cute though, that 'innocent - who me?' smile makes me laugh every time!

I find the religion of Origin interesting. I can't help but wonder if it's meant to mock Christianity. I'm never quite sure. Perhaps it is the Catholic church? Idk. A lot of religions today focus on the deeds...live the right way etc...and ignore the saving grace of Jesus' blood.

Track Change.

The more I watch the last Star Trek movie, the reboot if you will...the more I like it. It's a lot deeper than I would have given it credit for before seeing it. I don't think they altered the "real" time line though. I think it was an alternate reality, but that's just me. I thought for sure that Sam Kirk was Jim's older brother...in which case he was forgotten about for the movie. Oh well.

I've also been reading alot. Last time I was here at the library, I picked up "Wicked: the life and times of the Wicked Witch of the West" and I must say that I wasn't that impressed. It didn't stick with the history established in the original book "The Wizard of Oz". Tin Man did a better job at creating an alternate reality for Oz. I also picked up an Eve Dallas book, by Nora Roberts as "J.D. Robb". Those I adore! A police murder drama set in the future? What's not to love! lol! I'll probably pick up a few more of those today.

OK, signing off to read some blogs and look for books.

Season 9 & 10 are good. Vala was a great addition, and features a lot in season 10
