Killing Atlantis Made Me Sick

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!

Teyla the Toot is wary of Friday nights without Atlantis

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.

Eating some yogurt that she probably shouldn't've had!

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!

I was eating string cheese and she was hopeful

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!

If that isn't the cutest little yogurt-covered dog, I don't know what is!

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. ;)

I start school on Monday too, I still have to pay my tuition and buy my books, but I was on Vacation in Vancouver so.. :D (Also, Cliff Simon smells like Sex)

I agree on the front of Atlantis being Cancelled! I found out on my blackberry while in Vancouver, and was in shock. I do however plan to buy the movies and hope that Moe Jacuzzis counterpart will live up to his expectations and do 3 a year! ;)

I'm not an Eureka fan either, but I dont get Sci-Fi, I get the Space Channel and they play good things, most of the time!

Now, I wish I could have arrested Development. I go to school full time in my UG, work 2-3 days a week at a Liquor Store....maybe that is why I never have time for my boyfriends...or friends.... I've only been in school since i was 5; we didn't have pre-school and I was raised by my Nanny until I was 7 so I like to say I've been in school my entire life, due to the fact that my Nanny did 'school days' with me and my little brother when my sister and my older were in school. Just tell Alex that school is fun and that you're allowed to complain because you pay for it, its like voting.

I'm sorry to hear that your sick, I hope you get better. I'm not sure about yogurt as a cure though.....

That's the CUTEST darn dog, what kind is he/she?

You know Amazon is having a 40% off on box set sale right now. Season 1 of Eureka. You almost have to watch that from the beginning just to get the feel for the characters. The one liners in it are almost as good as Col O'Neill's though. ALMOST . They run a close second.

Check out this site for O'Neill one liners.

Speaking of being upset something was cancelled "Sigh"
