Happy birthday, huzzlewhat!

James Gunn has just posted this on Twitter: First episode of PEANUS should be next Weds, if things go as planned. Tyler Bates, Michael Rosenbaum, Belladonna, Sean Gunn

About time! I'm going into Rosen-withdrawal.

It is very cold here today. To warm up, a photo I haven't seen before of Michael & Chris with a lady on a beach:


I was tagged by dawnybee for the 20 questions meme.

People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blog and replace any question that they dislike with a new, original question.

Tag eight people. don't refuse to do that. don't tag who tagged you.




1)Have you ever broken any bones?

Yep. Multiple toes, multiple times.

2)How do you style your hair?

Sometimes down in a mop, sometimes up in a twirl. I'm not above wearing a scrunchy from time to time.

03. What's new in your life right now?
Financial worry...I'm trying not to let it dominate me.

A good new thing is the return of an old friend I hadn't seen in years. He's come back so much more confident and happy - it's a joy to see.

04 How many colors are you wearing right now?
Red hoodie and blue track pants: Clark colours!

05. Are you an introvert or extrovert?
Introvert is my default mode.

06. what was the last book you read?
"Japanland" by Karin Muller. A fascinating memoir/travelogue of a year spent in Japan.

07. do you nap a lot?
Never!

08. First TV boy/girlfriend
Michael J. Fox on "Family Ties." I was 10.

09. is there anything that has made you unhappy these days?
In Canada, Harper's attacks on Quebec; in the US, the passing of Prop 8.

10. what was the last thing you ate today?
Hot chocolate!

11. how long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
Forty minutes rushing about.

12. What was the last thing you watched?
The S4 finale of "Dr. Who" which wrecked me, in a good way. Donna is officially my favourite companion. If I watch Smallville like a horny teenager, I watch "DW" like an excited little kid, leaning forward in my chair.

13. what relaxes you when you are stressed out?
Going for a run or a bike ride. Eating chocolate. Calling my best friend in Vancouver.

14. do you like to clean?
Nope.

15. what's the last song that got stuck in your head?
"Look good in blue" by Blondie. I loved Blondie as a kid but this song is actually quite naughty:
"I'll give you some head....and shoulders, to lie on."
https://www.yousendit.com/transfer.php?action=batch_download&batch_id=TTZuaUNBUzhrUm5IRGc9PQ

16. What was the best thing you saw today?
Tiny snow-suited children attempting to play hockey.

17. What would your death row meal consist of?
All desserts: butter tarts and chocolate ice cream. Might as well go out on a sugar high!

18. what would you do if you see $100 lying on the ground?
Look around for an owner. If no one's around, I would try and use it for a charitable purpose....since I'm a bit poor right now, I'd be tempted to spend it on Christmas presents.

19. best time of your life?
I'm happiest outdoors regardless of season, either on foot or on bike, alone or with friends. I love both the woods and big cities, just getting out there and exploring.


20. tell me something good.
Leonard Cohen will tell you instead!
"Yeah we're drinking and we're dancing
but there's nothing really happening
and the place is dead as Heaven on a Saturday night
And my very close companion
gets me fumbling, gets me laughing
she's a hundred but she's wearing something tight!
and I lift my glass to the Awful Truth
which you can't reveal to the ears of youth
except to say it isn't worth a dime
And the whole damn place goes crazy twice
and it's once for the devil and once for Christ
but the Boss don't like these dizzy heights
we're busted in the blinding lights,
of CLOSING TIME!"


I tag the birthday girl huzzlewhat, complicat,
tariel22, rosy5000, lonelywalker, drusplace, jh_july001 and eeyore1017.

Nice photo! Also was wondering what was going on with Michael's eps of PG Porn.

Love the woods trail photo. Can't wait 'till the green comes back again. Of course that means tons of mosquitoes and blackflies, but right now I'd take those over the cold and ice.

Are you getting the ice storm? It's supposed to switch to regular rain for us tomorrow.

Oh, that area looks so fun to go exploring in. Of course if I did there'd be a story on the news about a search crew having to go in to rescue me.

Sorry to hear about the financial stress; look at it this way, we are all in together! I don't know of one person who isn't worrying about their finances. Myself included ::hugs::

Hee! That photo was taken probably five minutes before I got lost. I've done so many biking trips and I always succeed in getting myself, and others, lost somehow. But it's still fun.

Awww!! Michael on the beach! :D That ought to be a drink. hehe

I can't wait to see his PG-Porn. *giggles* He'll make it worth watching if if everything else sucks about it.

I'll try to do this meme soon. I got tagged for it by someone else too, but some of the questions are different. :)

Mmmmm, yes! The kind of drink that goes straight to your head.

Only if you want to! And you're allowed to change the questions you don't like - I stuck with dawnybee's version.

Michael and Chris look like they're in some kind of fashion catalogue.

...And what on earth have you been doing to your toes? (Forgive me if the answer is obvious, like you're a world-class toe-wrestling champion, and I missed it.)

Heh, nothing that exciting. Mostly running into door frames, tripping over rocks etc; on a seasonal note, in high school one toe got run over by a sleigh.

They do! Such lovely stylish gentlemen.

"Japanland"? Wow, sounds like a fun read. ;) It's very interesting to see our country through the eyes of foreigners.

The book was also a film - here's the webpage:
http://www.japanlandjourney.com/

I thought it was a very interesting read - the writer starts off in Tokyo but then sets off to rural Japan.

I'd be interested to read about a Japanese visitor traveling across my country (Canada) too!

I just realized I never commented on this entry, even though I did the meme. Sorry about that!

Another lovely pic! Everyone in that picture looks fabulous! I love how Michael's shirt is a little bit snug and a little bit see-thru. Yum.

I'm having a bit of financial worry myself right now. As I imagine many people are, at least here in the U.S., with the economy in the shape it's in. I'm resolved to be very frugal in the new year. I have tons of DVDs I haven't watched yet, so I'm going to take a bag lunch and my portable DVD player to work, instead of going out to eat every day. I even resolved not to buy any new DVDs in 2009 until I had watched all the ones I already own. That one is going to be rough. :) I'm so addicted to DVDs.

Reconnecting with old friends can be wonderful, or it can be awkward and weird. I'm glad your reunion has been a positive one!

Almost everyone on my flist who did this meme described themselves as an introvert. That fascinates me.

The passage of Prop. 8 was very discouraging. That was not a proud day to be a Californian. We're generally thought of as the most progressive state, and we do this? I just don't understand what everyone is afraid of.

That pic looks so inviting! My favorite place to be outdoors is the woods, especially when it's raining, and all you can hear is the sound of the raindrops hitting the leaves. The peacefulness of it just puts all my worries to rest.

I just discovered Leonard Cohen's music for the first time recently, when I found out he wrote Hallelujah, and went looking for some of his other songs. He's amazing.

Thanks for doing this, I love getting to know you a little better from reading your answers!

Sorry, I'm so slow to get this comment!

Here's hoping the picture improves in 2009.

I'm puzzled that a civil rights issue can be put on a ballot. I was very surprised by the result, because I always think of California as very sensible on social issues (and I'm sure the majority of people are.)

Sounds lovely! My solution to stress is always to get outdoors for a bit.

Hee! Well, like you, I can't really be an introvert at work but it is my preferred mode!
