weekend updates

I spent most of the weekend choosing to do almost nothing. Why? Because I really wanted to be by the phone in case my best friend needed to talk. His mom's in the hospital and not doing very well at all. (I will not go further into it as it is his family's business, and it should then be only theirs to share further.) So, I just chilled. Oh, except for Saturday evening. I went out to dinner at Chevy's (mexican food) with my family for my sister's birthday, and then she and her boyfriend came over afterwards for cake. I'm very happy my parents decided after 25 years to finally stop singing "Happy Birthday" which sounds pathetic with only three people singing it. I kept forgetting (even until about an hour before we needed to go) that we were going out for my sister's birthday, and while I cannot totally account for this apparent early onset of Alzheimer's at the ripe old age of 27, I have to assume I've partially forgotten because I did not go shopping for her. At all. She wanted a dishwasher for her birthday, and so my mother and she went out and got one. I think I still owe my mother for my portion of it. After all, Kat specifically said in an email that she wants nothing else other than a new dishwasher for her house she bought back in March.
Technically her birthday is tomorrow; I may surprise myself and give into older-sister hovering and do something for her.
So, in my exploits to imitate a vegetable this weekend, I found myself amused last night walking out to the kitchen/family room while cooking today's lunch and doing laundry. I made three trips into the kitchen/family room (all one room, separated only by a rug) and noticed my mother watching a cheezy made-for-TV movie, Aftershock: Earthquake in NYC. The first time I walked out, I caught a look at Sgt. Johnson (from SG-3) and Martouf/Lantesh, and immediately recognized them. Of course, my mother vaguely recognized Martouf, but only guessed him after I mentioned that he kissed Sam and had a "double personality"... (My mother is my Stargate partner--we made it through all ten seasons together in a recent marathon, so it should be all fresh in her mind... more on that later though).
I kid you not, the second time I walked in, there was the head Trust guy right there on the screen, as the mayor's aid. Again I asked my mother if she recognized him, but she did not. Then again, sometimes she doesn't recognize the big actors in movies, let alone one show. I certainly didn't expect for her to recognize Johnson or Trust Guy, but she should have gotten Martouf much faster, given how much she liked him in the series. I was beginning to wonder if I just had Stargate on my mind (which is all thats been up there for five months now, so its a reasonable assumption, isn't it?) when the third time I walked out there, Maybourne and Narim were standing on a ledge of a building in this kind of existential look. It was then and there I walked out for the last time, motioning to my mother that I would not be returning out that evening as I really didn't want to recognize more people! I mean, come on? Maybourne and Narim together in what looked like a "best friends" scene? it was just too funny. Not to mention that Martouf seemed to acting more like a Go'auld than his normal Tok'ra self. Johnson and trust guy didn't seem to have lines. I must assume that the movie was filmed in Vancouver, since otherwise how would five canadian actors ended up on a NYC themed movie?
Anyways... that little bit blew my mind last night in SG goodness. Otherwise the weekend and the updates I got kinda sucked. *sadsigh*
Anyways... I am superexcited for the release of the Hammond Alphabet Soup sg_fignewton is holding for tonight. Nothing like new reading material!.
