YOU GUYS. LUCAS IS BACK. HE'S BACK AND HE WENT STRAIGHT TO SAMI AND THEY'RE TALKING AND BEING HONEST AND BANTERING AND HUGGING AND SAYING THEY LOVE EACH OTHER. IN THE SWEETEST WE'VE-FINALLY-LOOPED-BACK-AROUND-TO-BEING-BEST-FRIENDS-AFTER-ALL-THE-SHIT-WE-PUT-EACH-OTHER-THROUGH WAY.



THIS IS BASICALLY MY REACTION:


(And not because I just chloroformed someone.)

I CAN'T EVEN PROCESS THIS YOU GUYS. I just...it's hard to explain if you've never fallen in love with a soap couple. I've been shipping these characters since 1997. That's literally half my life. It's close to half of *their* lives. Soaps have a lot of issues (shit, I haven't even watched Days regularly since 2004 because I couldn't stand it), but they are unrivaled in the amount of history that can be brought to a single scene, just because their characters have been on for *so long*-- it's amazing.

I honestly thought I had this out of my system. Like I said, I haven't even watched since 2004. But then I watched today's show (and Monday's, since they air a day ahead in Canada and the Canadians are a kind and generous people) and I wanted to hop up and down with how excited and happy and thrilled I was. Seriously, in just these two days, we've gotten more than we used to get in *years.*

So basically, HEARTS. HEARTS IN MY EYES.

Scenes from today's and Monday's shows under the cut, plus screencaps. So technically spoilers for Monday, I guess )

Soooo, as some of you know, my friend [livejournal.com profile] miana_dude is a film student. Back in February, she needed a couple actors for one of her class assignments, so [livejournal.com profile] sirrogue and I helped her out. I would describe myself as a marginally competent theater actress, but this was my first experience with film, and it was kind of weird, you know? Very very very different from theater. Anyhow, Rachel cut together a blooper reel from the film, and it made me giggle, so I thought I'd share with y'all:



I'm only sorry that the camera wasn't rolling when Rogue completely lost it during a dead-serious take. That was some good stuff. :)

YOU GUYS OHMYGOSH. YOU GUYS.

Okay so. Greg Grunberg has this band, right? Band From TV. It's a bunch of actors (plus a core of actual musicians, cause, yeah) and they play charity events and stuff. GG plays drums, Teri Hatcher sings, Hugh Laurie plays keyboard, Adrian Pasdar plays guitar-- and. And and and. Jesse Spencer plays violin. And/or fiddle.

EEEEEEEEEE. I didn't have any particular like or dislike for him before this, but a man who plays the fiddle? YES PLS. Just call me Martha Jefferson.

Lookit, lookit, lookit, here's them playing "Devil Went Down to Georgia," which is only like one of my favorite songs EVER, and he is wearing a freaking cowboy hat and trying to sound all country. *dies*

OMG Y'ALL. ESPN Classic is running old American Gladiators episodes!!! Today I saw the last bit of a very early episode (wikipedia informs me it's the second half of season 1) and OMG YAY! Even though the two events I caught were boring (Human Cannonball and Breakthrough & Conquer) and the Eliminator was awfully lame back then. I liked Powerball and Assault. And the one where they were on bungee cords. And Atlasphere, of course.

I'm sad that we don't get ESPN Classic at home. I want to see Wesley Berry win his million championships again! Two Scoops! (Why yes, I am a ridiculous geek.)

They cancelled my gymnastics class tonight! This means I get to go home right away after work and watch the Netflixed Dark Angel DVDs that arrived in the mail while I was at GenCon! And that I don't have to do the forward handspring drill when I'm still totally wiped from this weekend! Exclamation points are great!

YAY!!!!

I almost skipped gymnastics tonight to go see Superman again. I'm seriously contemplating going afterward. And then seeing a matinee tomorrow.

Please send help. Or cookies.

Holy crap, you guys! I have had a revelation over dinner!

I LIKE BROCCOLI!

I LIKE A VEGETABLE THAT IS NOT ALSO A STARCH!

HOLY CRAP! THIS IS SERIOUSLY EARTH-SHAKING!

Perhaps there is hope for me yet.

(but keep that lettuce crap away from me. let's not go crazy here.)

ETA: Yay, the za'tarc episode of SG1!!!

I may possibly have bought a pair of capri pants today. And a toe ring a couple weeks ago (but that one was totally [livejournal.com profile] blusurfer's fault). Next thing you know, I'll be wearing flip-flops 24/7.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME!?

Also, GIP. The hotness!

I had a very-not-fun gymnastics class today, so instead of wallowing (which I did on the bus home) I am going to list things that have made me happy recently:

  • Chuck Norris reads Chuck Norris Facts! SO FUNNY.

  • I made [livejournal.com profile] mary_linton's chocolate-chip-sour-cream coffee cake last night and took it into work and people loved it again. Mmmm.

  • Perri's Gilmore Girls fic recs reminded me why I loved Luke and Lorelai in the first place and took me back to a happier time in my GG watching. You know, like two three months ago, when we were still catching up.

  • My Jersey Boys Original Broadway Cast CD arrived today. It's not quite listening to the show from up in the shop, but it's close. The memory of making my wedding dress is inextricably tied to the songs from this show, wafting up from the stage. (Endless repeats of "Who Loves You," that's usually the song it triggers.) *loves on Jersey Boys*

  • We've been Netflixing Season 1 of Justice League-- we started watching JLU a few years ago, so now we're going back to the beginning. It's very very happy-inducing. (Batman/Wonder Woman 4EVA!!!) Except you don't get to see the total animated hotness that is Shayera, because she's wearing that dumbass mask and costume. (Note to self, make Shayera icon.)

  • The icon in this post, both because it's funny, and because I am currently desperately in love with Nine. (That's why I haven't been watching the new-new Who along with the rest of the flist; if I only get thirteen episodes with Christopher Eccleston, I'm going to make them last, dammit. David Tennant will still be there when I'm done.)

  • And the husband made me a hamburger for dinner. Total comfort food, yum. And he just put in The Hunt for Red October, which has SAM NEILL YAY.

Well. Feeling much better now. Think I'll go find some fics. (So many fandoms, so little time!)

I did lots of shopping today. I got stuff. It was fun. I still have no new shoes, but! I have a purse. I've been looking; I needed a new one. And I found:

OMG this is such a girly purse, what was I thinking??? )

ETA: YAY! I found those adorable wedges that Maria was wearing the other day: clicky me. But the review says they're really narrow, and my feet are wide. Phooey.

I wish I were not so scared of calling people on the phone.

Why can't everyone use email, like sensible people?

WHY GOD WHY AAARGH.

ETA: You know, I really need to stop freaking out about these things. It went fine. It went better than fine. It's just that initial hurdle of dialing. (I always try to write an outline of how I want the conversation to go, when I'm calling a business, or a stranger, or whatever. Is that weird?)
