Please Lando, tell me about your mother.

Warning:If you do not wish to know the random workings of this bloggers mind, do not read. There are somethings one has to get off of one's chest, or out of one's brain.I had the weirdest dream last night.I'm one of those people who shouldn't watch anything on TV too close to bed time.Last night we watched Star Wars the Empire Strikes Back.It's been several years since I've seen this one and it was almost suspenseful.After all that time it was still disgusting when Han Solo sliced open the Tauntaun (that beast they ride on the ice planet, Hoth), and then put Luke in it to keep him warm.Couldn't there have been some other way?The reason that Luke needed rescuing at all is that he ran into a sort of abominable snowman called a Wampa.The Wampa almost finishes him off but is foiled when Luke light sabers his arm off.Anyway, later on in the movie, Lando Calrissian, Han's supposed friend, seems to be working with Darth Vadar (about this time I was in and out…

Take the Quiz here!
You Are...Elizabeth Bennet! You are Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! You are intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. You have a good head on your shoulders, and oftentimes find yourself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of ridiculousness. You take great pleasure in many things. You are proficient in nearly all of them, though you will never own it. Lest you seem too perfect, you have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves you very ill indeed.

Chicken noodle Soup for the Toes

The other night I became adventurous and made chicken noodle soup from scratch. This is something I've actually never done before. Campbell’s has always taken that responsibility off my shoulders. If I'm not mistaken, making stock includes putting chicken bones or parts in water to soak the flavors out. Please correct my not-so-domestic knowledge. Personally, I prefer a bouillon cube. Well, bone's not included, the boys loved it! When this happens, Douglas will always say: Why don't you make this every night?! I rarely get that compliment from the Dougie-bear, so I try to remember the item being served on such occasions.

Somehow that night we got on the subject of tongues (dinner time subjects are always random at our house). What are tongues for? Where does the tongue end (Reed says it goes all the way to the stomach)? After concluding that tongues are where we taste the food we eat, Douglas pointed out to me that if he didn't have a tongue he wouldn'…

Elizabeth Bennet in love with Jean-luc Picard

Over the past 6 years, Chris and I have formed a stronger and stronger “mind meld” as each other’s interests have been shared and understood through the other’s subtle form of indoctrination.Chris is a great fan of Science Fiction and I of Jane Austen and all things Georgian.Chris enjoys a Star Trek/ Battlestar Gallactica/ Star Gate night of entertainment.I enjoy a Jane Austen/Charlotte Bronte/Harry Potter night of entertainment. ( Of course, Lord of the Rings is common ground, who doesn’t like that?!).Being married to the other requires willingness to compromise.“We’ll watch 3 star trek episodes this time and then we’ll watch Pride and Prejudice the next time.” As Mr. Bennet would say of us "I have not a doubt of your doing very well together. Your tempers are by no means unlike. You are each of you so complying, that nothing will ever be resolved on." Because we have shared each other’s preferred entertainment on many an evening, we each have let language from the other’s…
