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!.
