Well, now that the initial shock has worn off, I'm actually pretty excited for the Atlantis movies. In the movie format, there'll be more time to focus on character interactions rather than just plot. Hopefully they'll be just as good as the show, if not better!
I think this Stargate news has affected my health... a few days ago, when the decision to axe Atlantis was apparently being made, I started to feel sick. It progressed painfully swollen lymphnodes in my neck and extreme irritation in my... head. I had a perpetual headache and all day yesterday would get shooting pains from the back of my skull whenever I touched the right side of my nose (or whenever I breathed). Talk about bizarre! This morning I woke up without the nose-sensitive shooting pains but with a lingering general "tightness" in my head and phantom sinus pains. Hopefully this is just a retarded virus that I'll kick ASAP.
For a while, when the base of my skull was hurting, I was worried about Meningitis, trying to convince myself that I was too old to get it. Common sense tells me that you're never too old if you're exposed! And that's the sad part -- I've been a troll as much as possible lately and haven't gone out, so unless I picked up something babysitting, I don't know how I caught this bugger. Here's to hoping I'm even better tomorrow!
School starts on Monday and I am not looking forward to it in the least. The worst part is, as my sister keeps reminding me, "What are you doing? You don't even have to go to school -- you're done! You chose to go to grad school!" I always forget that I already have a degree. But hey, I've been going to school since I was 2 1/2 - 3 and don't know how to stop! I also have arrested development. I still live at home and... I don't want a "real" job!
And in case anyone's wondering, I'm still planning on contributing to the SGA fandom after the last episode airs, and my sister and I will certainly be doing more fan films! I hope you're all coping well.
Mackenzie's Momma - I definitely hear ya. And I think I also have the curse! Except instead of killing TV shows, I killed characters. I liked this asshole on ER and he got booted shortly after, then my best friend and I loved Jonas on SG-1 and he disappeared, too! I guess I shouldn't say that Teyla is probably my favorite on Atlantis... but that's only by a fraction. I love the whole team. Maybe that's why it got canceled -- your curse and mine combined?
Tracie - Thanks for the recommendation, and sorry to have been the bearer of bad news! I have heard nothing but good things about Eureka and it's nice to have it recommended by another Stargate fan. One of the main reasons I said I didn't intend to watch it is because I only seem to have so much time for TV, and getting into a new show takes some effort! But now I'll make more of an effort if I happen to get the TV when it's on. ;)
