I promised some pictures from my trip to Newfoundland. It was really beautiful, even if it was freezing!

I am here in Detroit, and [ profile] aliasrlm and I are sitting on the couch watching French Kiss, which we both love despite Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline's Faux French accent.

Last night we went out and had a lovely Italian dinner with too much wine. While we had grand plans of going out and painting the town red, we ended up on the couch watching Intervention and South Park's take on 24. "Why do you think I'm talking like this? In a whisper, but a really loud whisper for dramatic effect!"

Today's plans... eating bagels that her man is currently out buying us, shopping, and then Blades of Glory! "I see you still look like a 15 year old girl, only not hot!" Awe-some. If it's half as good as Anchorman, it'll still be a riot.

Fandom news of the day, S2 of SGA showed up on my wishlist at the used CD store in town. I'm on a real SGA kick, especially S/W fic, which I can't stop reading. No comment on any spoilers.

Back to coffee.

I'm off to Detroit to see [ profile] aliasrlm and it's not a moment too soon. I need a vacation, even if it is just 3 days away from here. I'm looking forward to good food, good wine and fantastic company. And probably some Kiefer lusting.

Here's hoping that some time soon we can do another, larger freakfest. *hugs to all*

It's not a good sign when you're having a bad day and it's 6:00 am. I'm working the 6 to 2 shift this week. So I pop out of bed at 5:15, and find something to wear. I go with a purple V-neck sweater I got at Old Navy that looks awesome with my Magneta Lane t-shirt under it. I love the sweater because it's cozy and the sleeves go to that perfect length, right to the middle of your hand. Or at least they used to, before I put it in the dryer a couple days ago. Now the sleeves hit at that awkward 1 1/2 inches before my wrist. Seriously, how did the sleeves shrink 5 inches?! I swear I've put it in the dryer before... anyway, Bad day = 1, Steph = 0.

So me and my shrunken sweater head out to the car. I start it up, and get out of the car and leaned down to reach into my back seat and pull out the scraper to wipe the snow off my car. Except while doing this I somehow manage to bang my mouth into the thingy on the front seat that the seat belt feeds through. Hard. I now look like someone punched me in the mouth. It split my lip, and it's all swollen. Bad Day = 2, Steph = 0.

I get back in my car, lip throbbing, and drive off to work... and my driver's side door swings open. While I'm driving. Apparently the catch that holds the door closed is frozen open. So I had to drive to work with one hand on the wheel, and the other holding the door closed. I still hit the Tim Hortan's drive through, because there was no way I was skipping coffee when all that happened to me before 6am. Bad Day = 3, Steph = .5 (for navigating drive through)

I was explaining all this to my co-worker this morning and he said "well at least it can't get any worse" which of course means that something worse will happen. I will keep you posted.

In other news, I haven't watched Veronica Mars yet, since I had to be in bed by 9 to get up so crazy early this morning. I liked Heroes, a lot. As for 24 )

I want to post some music later, so now that I've typed this in here, I will have to. [ profile] halfway2home has posted some awesome stuff lately, so I want to give her a few of my favourite instrumentals, as well as some Arcade Fire because they are so freaking good. Expect that sometime after 2pm(Eastern) when I'm home.
