[Error: unknown template qotd]Sweet asses of Kobol, do you guys really not know?!?!


Why do I freaking love her like woah? She is EPIC. She was a former science teacher, now she's a freaking rock star of a best friend. She gave me an autographed photo of Mary McDonnell (and really, I think Mary could totally play her in some movie of my life. :P

Anyways, she likes BSG. That officially makes her one of the best people in my life, because she's someone who understands my insanity. She makes science fun and awesome and she references Cylons a lot (especially since she has 26 of them and one of them is named Liam (after her son, of course, but skipping that idea and the fact that he's the captain of an airline). How awesome is that? And she airlocks students (by making them go outside). And wears reading glasses and white crossover blouses and Wigs of Sad (because she had breast cancer).

And besides, her hubby read LotR and once served in the military and his name is Bill. That is awesomesauce right there because hers is a dimunitive of Laura. They met on a frakking plane.

Besides all of the awesome BSG references, she's a great friend and you can always trust her to keep secrets and cheer you up.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Being the shallow teenager that I am, I'm quite unhappy with my body right now. But still, there are some things that I like and I hope they stay that way. :]

I love my fingers. Not really how they look, but how flexible they can be. Piano's to blame, of course, but I suppose someone will find out one day that I'm very good with my hands. (that's what she said!)

I love my calves. I think they're quite shapely. I bet if I woke up in the Colonial period tomorrow all the guys will kill for my calves. After all, back then padded stockings were very popular for a reason.

I love my eyes. They're a very dark brown and you can only see the brown if you stare for a looooong time.

I love my lips. They're very full and sometimes I wish they were a little thinner. But then I see all of those other girls trying to get bee-stung lips and I can't help but laugh.

I love my figure. I'm rather pleased that I don't grow sideways (yet), so there's no spoiling it. It's kinda pear, kinda hourglass. More hourglass than pear, though. Right now I'm still a little on the plump side, but as Mrs. F puts it, I've got "quite a body" and maybe someday "those boys at school will be lining up" for me.

(why yes, she does flatter me a lot.)

[Error: unknown template qotd]Watch Battlestar Galactica. Get Mrs. F into it before Halloween so you two can dress up as Laura and Billy.

Tell Mrs. F you love her. Because you do.

Don't be ashamed of being different.
lily_winterwood: (my spy cameras bsg)

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me!"
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will post the answers to the questions (and the questions themselves) on your blog or journal.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions. And thus the endless cycle of the meme goes on and on and on...

[ profile] angiescullygave me:
interview me! )
In other news... Mrs. F said something totally epic today.
"You can mess with me - but leave my kid out of it."

EPIC WIN. It's so badass. ;]
lily_winterwood: (me and mrs. f heart)

Got another awesomesauce email from Mrs. F! *happy dance* There were some interesting links in there; I thought some people might like to take a gander at them. :P

Pure prevention is a campaign to raise awareness about how our environment might lead to breast cancer. There's some interesting stuff in there about how our makeup and food and stuff could lead to the Laura Roslin Melancholy Situation if we don't choose the right ones. Wonder if Madame President knew?

Camaron Ochs is Mrs. F's niece! She is a pretty darn good singer and there are clips on her site. It would be soooo epic if Mrs. F asked her to do a cover of "All Along The Watchtower"... folk style, lol.

Anyhoo... Mrs. F might be getting that Twitter any day now. :D
lily_winterwood: (happy happy joy joy bsg)
I'm BACK! What did I miss? ;]

Camp was... okay, I guess. Great food, frendly people, but terrible weather! And the mosquitos are evil! Evil, I say. Grrrrrrrrr, evol mosquitoes of evollllll.

Hum... I'm missing Mrs. F again. Tried to induce the Gaius Baltar Complex, but it's not working. :[

Another thing... I'm thinking about changing my journal header and layout. I've changed my layout and I'm thinking of getting another header. Any ideas?
lily_winterwood: (you call this coffee garfield)

Welcome to my lj, my newfound buddies[info]own_the_sky (*bows to thy epic icon-making skillz*) and[info]outintherain! Hope you've got your seatbelts fastened; it's going to be an insanely bumpy ride. :D

And for my other flisters, it's going to be the same insanely bumpy ride you've all undertaken so many times before. Heh.

I've been reading BagEnders - for all you psycho LotR fans who don't mind crackfic, GO READ IT. It'll make you double over laughing. Seriously. What's not to love about the Fellowship in the houseshare from hell? Kinda makes me want to write a drabble of life on Earth v.2, with immortal BSG characters all stuck in the same hous. Starring Colonel Tigh as Gandalf, Adama and Roslin as Aragorn and Legolas (kinda shows you how slashy BagEnders got), Starbuck and Leemo as Merry and Pippin (ditto), Billy as Boromir, Chief as Gimli, and I guess Gaius as Frodo, suffering from Post-Tool Of God Syndrome and still seeing Head!Six all over the place as he tries to cook dinner and act all housewifey over everyone else.

I'd totally see them reminescing over dinner about how we've progressed/recessed, complete with stories about Adama being in the US navy as an Admiral, how they all fought in the Civil War except for Roslin, who went to live with the Sioux/Comanche (total Dances With Wolves reference there), how, before that, how Gaius made a total fool of himself in Ancient Rome... :P

Anyways, I'm going to cut off my rambling. Why?

Cause I'm going CAMPING. Again. In the friggin' desert. There's no sense of temperature in this, is there?

Of course, there probably won't be intrawebz, so I'll be gone for the weekend starting Friday afternoon. I think.

But Friday's the seventeenth, so...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY (in advance), MRS. F!
(and a happy belated birthday to [info]julyflame and [info]lil_ani and everyone else on my flist who had a birthday recently!)

I hope every single one of you birthday kids (and kids-at-heart) have a frakking awesome day! Don't eat too much cake! I ate too much ice-cream cake at my cousin's b-day party and I've renewed my hatred for whipped frosting. Especially the awful pale green sort that looks fit for Cake Wrecks. And speaking of wrecked cakes, hope you didn't have to send a photo of your cake over to that awesome blog because someone mispelled your name/mispelled "happy birthday"/had bad grammar/inappropriately decorated the cake/used incorrectly placed quotation marks/created a fugly cupcake cake (ptooey!) with four-inch thick frosting/etc.

Many happy returns! If you have requests for a sticky note doodle, don't hesitate to ask. :]
(confound it, where did I put the Doc Cottle one that I drew three months ago?)

lily_winterwood: (mary envelope screening bsg)

and I still freaking miss Mrs. F. :[

Mrs. F, wherever you are, speak to me!!! I need to know if you're still out there or if the past two years (the best years of my childhood as far as I'm concerned) have just been a strange dream that ended after my time at our school ended. Or if likecut for Daybreak spoilerphobes ) the moment I walked away.

At least you haven't magically disappeared from my yearbook and drawings... that would be depressing.
lily_winterwood: (everything i do is presidential bsg)

Happy Fourth of July!!!!!!!
(to my flisters/RL friends in the U.S., of course)

What are you guys up to today? I just came back from a parade and I'll be going to a concert later today featuring the music of Billy Joel and ending in fireworks.

Don't blow yourself up trying to light a firework or stuff your face so full of hot dogs that you can barely walk the next day! ;D Especially you, Caitlyn. Don't get hurt and don't eat too many veggie dogs.

And Mrs. F, I really miss you! How are you today? Are you watching the parade at Huntington Beach? The one the radio calls "the biggest Fourth of July parade this side of the Mississippi? I hope you don't blow yourself up with the fireworks either, but knowing your healthy eating skills, I don't think you'll get bloated by hot dogs. Unless your husband can grill up some nice ones.

I seriously miss you! Did you get the promotion pictures yet? And the icons? They're all true. Sending my love over...

I ♥ you, Mrs. F! Take care and have a happy Fourth of July! :]
lily_winterwood: (me and mrs. f heart)
First of all, yes that icon shows me and Mrs. F.

I'm feeling depressed. STILL. Argh, I need fic!therapy. Any help?

At least I might have a Vienna Teng concert to look forward to and also a day with a friend from elementary school, Christine (aka Christianne)
lily_winterwood: (7th grade science teacher bsg)

So today's the end-of-the-school year ceremony thing (aka promotion) and I didn't get my tearducts functioning until lunch, an hour later. :[

cut for overemotional wangst. :*[ )
lily_winterwood: (alter-ego is prez grey's anatomy)

And it's also the saddest, cos after this I'm going to a different school and I won't see Mrs. F the Awesome anymore! *sniff* I think I'm already exhibiting withdrawal symptoms. :[

epic story is epic )

Today was totally epic. :] :] :] I'll miss everyone at my school so much. Especially Mrs. F.
lily_winterwood: (mary mcawesome is awesome bsg)

Best. Present. EVER.
It's an AUTOGRAPHED (it's real, I have the certificate and stuff!) picture of Mary (as Laura)!!! *squees like a fangirl* And she's wearing THAT SHIRTTTTTTTT! *drools like a fangirl*

It's also officially obvious that this time around, the gift is a bazillion times better than waiting for it. Totally.

I love Mrs. F. so frakking hard it kinda hurts. ;] She's such an awesome person and I'll miss her so much. (and I hope she gets a Twitter soon!) She's my sine qua non. :]

(crossposted to [profile] mary_mcawesome.)
lily_winterwood: (vienna teng)
Holy crap. School's out on thursday.


That's kinda freaky.

Mrs. F has something for me. I haven't the slightest clue what it is and she won't tell me. *pouts* Well, they say that the wait is sometimes better than the gift. I've never really believed that...okay, maybe once or twice. :P

it's time I started confessing some stuff... )

The VOTES sim went out predictably - the American Independent Party, which is extremely conservative and the total opposite of Peace and Freedom, won the elections for all three periods. But they're the ones who stride around in suit jackets and ties and briefcases. They look the part. Peace and Freedom had to look casual, which really doesn't benefit our image. I pin all the blame on Mr. W, who is obviously biased and needs to stop putting prejudices and stereotypes on parties. We're not hippies, for frak's sake. We're LIBERALS. Grr.

Anyways. All we get are extra cookies. I'm going to make an icon that says: "I did a bunch of campaigning only to get a stupid cookie." :]

Is there something else I'm forgetting? *scratches head* Well, [info]laurawillows seems to be back for a while. Yay! *squishes* And I did do a bit of shameless flattery of the principal (Dr. T) during break. Tee hee.

We're getting yearbooks tomorrow, which is epic! Glee! :]
lily_winterwood: (flowers stock)

I'm currently reading The Other Boleyn Girl right now and it is awesome. It's been a while since I actually read a book that drew me in with details AND characterization AND actions that look pretty darn natural in that time period.

There are plenty of fics out there that do that, but with books... I guess I should loaf around in Barnes&Noble more. ;]

Anyways... the VOTES sim of DOOM is over! Glee! Our (Peace and Freedom) video doesn't look that great, but it's got a funny blooperreel and stuff. And the Democrats claim that theirs is worse.

Kudos to the Republicans for mentioning (I think they mentioned it, at least) Cylon Raiders and also to the American Independent Party for making shy, quiet Tina beat Patrick up. That was a laugh.

Mrs. F is considering joining Twitter. I hope she does! :]
lily_winterwood: (mary thinks your fic sucks bsg)
[Poll #1414101]In sad news...Mrs. F had to put her dog to sleep. Poor Magsie... :[

In happier news... I am totally obsessed about Dances With Wolves right now. Watched the movie about three times. It's so pretty. *drools*

...crap, I lost my train of thought and Lord of the Rings (the movie) beckons. *disappears*
lily_winterwood: (alter-ego is prez grey's anatomy)
Ah, life is epic.

Over the weekend I drew the same person for about 130 times, running the person through every emotion LJ has a moodtheme for. No reason, I guess.

Probably not going to do it again. :P

Today we filmed a scene for our video. (We only really had an hour) I had this big-ass statistics dump and a few other scenes before I get kidnapped! Haha! We played around with makeup and wigs; Mrs. F let us borrow hers now that her hair's growing out (it's freaking CURLY when it used to be just fluffy and epic!). She has a wavy brown one, a short black one, and two red ones. Rachel and Caitlyn looked awesome in the two red wigs. Rachel moreso than Caitlyn, but Caitlyn's wig had a near-mullet. :P She was all like, "I look like a guy with boobs!" and stuff.

Caitlyn was being pretty frakking perverted. She was laughing at all of the awkward parts and we had a blooper where the camera started and she forgot her lines. Off camera she had a fake British accent. It was epic, haha.

And there was the end part where I'm in the bushes and I get attacked... Caitlyn put on a lot of makeup for that one and wore my swooshy LotR cloak. She then proceeded to pick me up and I was screaming. For reals. ;P

Tomorrow we're doing some more filming. Yay?
lily_winterwood: (better together bsg)

Name your 10 absolutely favorite couples (het/slash/canon/fanon) and ask people to see what trends they notice about your couples. Try to pick different fandoms.

Let's see...
  1. Laura Roslin/Bill Adama (Battlestar Galactica)
  2. Aragorn/Arwen Undomiel (Lord of the Rings)
  3. Caspian X/Susan Pevensie (Chronicles of Narnia)
  4. Harry Potter/Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)
  5. Bella Swan/Edward Cullen (Twilight)
  6. Draco Malfoy/Ginevra Weasley (Harry Potter)
  7. Leland Adama/Kara Thrace (Battlestar Galactica)
  8. Legolas Thranduillion/Arwen Undomiel (Lord of the Rings)
  9. Artemis Fowl/Holly Short (Artemis Fowl)
  10. Samuel T. Anders/Kara Thrace (Battlestar Galactica)
I think there are two seperate trends going on there. :P

In Real Life news...
~We're doing a votes simulation in History class. There are political parties, rallies, Meet the Press, and basically the whole shindig. I'm in Peace and Freedom, which is even more liberal than a Democrat. Go me.
~Our PAF group did tie-dye shirts today and I stained my hands green on accident. I pretended to be Elphaba on purpose.
~I'm not going to be able to make it to the Envelope Screening series because of school issues. Go figure. T.T Mary and EJO, why must you guys come over on a school night? WHYYYYYYY?!? And why Los Angeles?
