Now i'm not much of a Facebook user, i'll admit that, but last week Stargate actors [Garry Chalk] (Colonel Chekov) and [Dan Payne] (Many different Wraith and Supersoldiers) added me as friends on there. And you know what? That really made my week.

I get home from work just now and in my email inbox is a friend request from [Erick Avari] (Kasuf). I love Erick. I met him in 2006 and he was such a gentleman. He also has the softest cheeks i have ever known and he added me as a friend on Facebook. He. Added. ME. I am really fighting the urge to cackle loudly and madly especially since my profile picture is of Erick, my brother and myself from the 2006 Gatecon. This has made my YEAR.

"Erick Avari added you as a friend on Facebook. We need to confirm that you know Erick in order for you to be friends on Facebook."

Naturally, i confirmed.
According to Gateword, Don S. Davis (General Hammond) died from a heart attack on Sunday.  I was actually really shocked when i found out, because although i knew he left SG1 due to heart related issues, i guess i assumed he was doing okay now, especially since he's in the new Stargate Continuum movie.  I think i'm going to find it strange watching the film now i think...watching it and knowing that that's the last time i'm going to see him in anything.  (Like watching the new Batman film with Heath in).  He was definitely my favourite Stargate Command boss. 


My personality type: the good-natured realist

Good-natured Realist (GR)
Good-natured Realists are warm-hearted, helpful personalities. They do their work conscientiously and have a pronounced organising talent. They often feel they are committed to traditional values. The family in particular is extremely important to Good-natured Realists. Their greatest pleasure is making themselves useful and taking care of other people. But they do not like pushing themselves to the fore; they prefer to fulfil their tasks out of the limelight. Good-natured Realists are real workaholics; they are very reliable and nothing is too much for them when it is a question of completing a project. Thoroughness, conscientiousness and sense of duty are their strongest points. They prefer established and familiar situations to new and unknown situations.

In dealing with others, Good-natured Realists are considerate and obliging; they are always happy to put aside their own requirements in the interest of their family and friends. Their home is mostly very well cared-for, cosy and tidy. Their perfectionism on the one hand and their aversion to delegating tasks on the other hand often lead to them taking on too much both professionally and privately. They cannot stand discord; conflicts make them very unhappy. One could almost describe them as being harmony-addicted - and this sometimes leads them to strongly neglecting themselves and their own wishes because they are unable to bring themselves to put up a fight.

Good-natured Realists dream of a stable and trusting relationship for life. Marriage and family are very important to them. They take care of their partner attentively and lovingly and put up with a lot for a harmonious relationship. They are also loyal and reliable friends. However, they can be very hurt if their interpersonal commitment is taken for granted for too long.

This is scarily accurate i think.
I'm back! Had an absolutely fantastic time in Switzerland and have literally taken about 600 photos - i'm hoping that some of them will actually be decent...i've taken enough! But the whole country was brilliant...spent a couple of days in Ouchy (Lausanne) and Geneva and a week each in Interlaken and Susten, and we spent every single day outside doing things like going up the Jungfraujoch and Saas Fee and swimming in Lake Thun (bloody freezing). But it's so beautiful there! And the cows really do have bells on (i took so many recordings of the sound). And the mountains really do have snow on them in the summer - and i got a suntan while having a snowball fight...how cool!! And...and...and....wait for it...they have whole towns where cars aren't allowed! For those that don't know me in real life - i'm a bit of a greeny...so the whole no car thing was incredible, and the air was so clean!

I'm ready to go back.

But it seems that all the good stuff happens while i'm away! I come back and Cassie Claire has finally finished the 'Draco Trilogy'. While i've grown out of that story...it was nice to finally have closure for it, knowing there's no more chapters coming - i mean 'Draco Veritas' was started back in 2001 - so it's kind of nice being able to close the door on that particular fic.

And Lance Bass from *NSYNC has come out as being gay. Why did i have to be away when he announced that? I love *NSYNC. I used to read slash about *NSYNC (albeit, none about Lance)...but i came across it completely by accident! If i hadn't gone far enough back in someone's journal to see what i'd missed i'd never have known (and what sort of fan would that have made me?) But anyway....go Lance! Which reminds me in Geneva, i saw two biker men (you know the kind: long beards and leather) holding hands walking down the street...and that made me smile :o) Although...whether the smile was in support of two men holding hands in public or because it was two biker men - i'm not sure.

And i've caught up on the last three weeks of SG:A and SG1. I take back everything i said about Atlantis in my last post. The last couple of episodes of it were really good...and then you had Sadeta. I'm not a big Ronan fan (heck i think everyone knows i'm a Sheppard and McKay girl) - but that episode completely blew me away. Possibly my favourite episode of the entire 3 series, it was that good. And SG1 has so far remained the same standard which i'm surprised about. I'm really enjoying this series a lot more than the last one. It's Stargate SG1 again. Remusly...they've all gone back to the beginning - back to what i loved about the show.

Gatecon in 4 days!
People know i'm a big Stargate fan right? And that since SG:A began, my loyalties from SG1 have shifted over to the Pegasus galaxy...because SG1 has frankly become quite boring.

But after watching the series premiere's for season 10 of SG1 and season 3 of SG:A - i have to say i preferred SG1's opener. I've read so many reviews of people saying how much they loved Atlantis' opener - but i really didn't like it. I think i must be the only person who didn't like the opener. The acting seemed off to me, and scenes seemed stilted, and Rodney seemed too forced like they were trying to hard to make him funny. I honestly didn't like it. SG1 on the other hand: okay so there were two moments where i thought WTF?! (namely Daniel and Cameron abandoning ship without even trying to save anyone else), but i enjoyed it so much more than Atlantis. Which is rather strange for me nowadays.

Maybe i just wasn't in the right frame of mind when i watched Atlantis...

Am off to Switzerland on Saturday, so this will be my last post for a couple of weeks. Not sure whether i'll post again before or after Gatecon, but we'll see. My german is improving! I've decided not to let it slip again, and will probably try to hunt out some german lj's so i can keep brushing up on it.

Hope everyone is enjoying the weather!
