My new TV husband

Okay so we all do it. We plop down in front of the TV on any given night and just let our brains wander off unsupervised to wherever it is that they go.  I am no exception to this rule.

In the past I have admitted to being a SCI FI junky. I have no problem admitting this. I love me some SCI FI.

Now you may remember way back when I started this blog I wrote about my first SGA love. His name was Peter Grodin.


I thought he was HAWT. The only issue was that when I came into the fandom(near the end of season 3) his character had been dead for a long time.

This wasn't an issue nor did it deter me from falling madly head over heels nuts about his character(I think that may have been the accent talking). I could NOT get enough of 'Grodin' wherever I could find him.

That was until recently. I was sitting re-watching one of my SGA disc's and happened to catch a cute looking character in the 'backround' of the episode.


That is Kavan Smith he plays Major Evan Lorne. *shivers* and I think he's HAWT. Yes I am admitting it. I don't care what the world thinks. Maj. Lorne, is my brand new TV husband. If he were 'real' I'd snatch him up and cart him off and reproduce with him. But alas he isn't so I will have to survive off adolescent daydreams.

Oh and I think the DELL might get a wee bit jealous.

And the award goes to

So since I don't have any awards for my blog currently and didn't feel like going and stealing one from somewhere, to award my new favorite blog, I figured I'd make one up. I have no clue how acceptable this is but I'm sure that they won't turn down a blog award(cause really who would)?

I'd like to introduce the Smokin' Hot Blog Award.


There is only one real 'rule' for this award. It should be given to a blogger who makes you laugh/snort/chuckle, on a regular basis.

Now without further ado, I'd like to hereby present my new award to

*Drum Roll*

Law Student Hot Mama

Are you reading her blog yet? No? Well why the heck not?

She is seriously funny and when she recently went on 'vacation' I missed her witty blog so much that I kept re-reading her feeds. Make sure you check out her T.I.T's  series she runs every Tuesday that is guaranteed to make you at least a little peeved about something.

Prom Memories

Tonight I was reminded just how long its been since I was in high school(really not THAT long but long enough). I was down picking up some stuff from the gas station when my favorite checker mentioned that last night was prom, so all the kids were hanging out trying to buy beer *rolls eyes*.

When I was a senior in high school, I actually strongly considered NOT going to prom(I only went to a total of 3 school dances- homecoming, Tolo, and Prom). That is until, all my friends basically told me that I HAD to go. So I agreed(seeing as I was a follower and all). I took my 'long time' boyfriend(my now ex), which was a big pain in the rear as we had to go through the whole 'permission' process involving him going back to his former high school and getting them to sign off and yada yada yada. Looking back I actually regret taking him to prom with me, as he was CONSTANTLY comparing it to his prom and how much mine 'sucked' in comparison.

Now don't get me wrong as far as it went my prom was pretty crappy. First off it was held at Qwest Field in one of their banquet halls(the meal portion) and also in the 'breezeway' overlooking the field that they just so happened to be holding a soccer game on. The meal was pretty bland and unmemorable, the entertainment shoddy, boring and slightly offensive, and the music? Lets just say the music SUCKED. I clearly remember everyone requesting 'good' music(a lot of country{don't knock us we're rural kids}) but instead the DJ's insisted upon playing rap, techno and other such garbage. They played 1 country song and when they did, it should have been CLEAR that was what we wanted as a line dance broke out(seriously a LINE fricking DANCE, at PROM). It was crazy. We ended up leaving early stopping at Dicks(my favorite Seattle eatery) on the way home and arriving back before 1 am(the prom didn't even end till midnight).

Just to complete this story I'd now like to share some of the horrid pictures from that evening/night. Please turn away now.

Fight the Frump- Nails, Nails, Nails

Time again to fight the frump. This week I would like to share a new favorite product I found.

Now as we all know, I am NOT a 'girly girl'. I am a down and dirty, covered in mud, Farm girl. I live in a barn part time, and am usually more at home in a pair of knee boots, than High heels. Plaid over Prada you might say.

That is until I discovered THIS product line.

More specifically Nic's Sticks. The easy to use fast and quick nail polish. I happened to stumble upon it shopping at MalWart*.

I picked up a Nic's Stick in "Red Eye to New York". Now we might remember that back at the beginning of April, I actually got a mani/pedi. That was the first time in about 2 years(I got one the day before I went into labor since then? Nothing)

On the website they have a really neat tool:


This neat little thing lets you find you're skin color, and than try out different shades of polish. Its really nice!

The Sticks, promise to be quick drying, and fast applying, which it really lived up to.

I think I'll be picking up some more of these little inexpensive cuties. Seriously I got this for under $2. That is cheaper than a soda!

Now go check out the other frump fighters at fussypant's blog.

I will snap pictures later and post them so you can see my prettified nails.

Meet the Hulk.

Here are pictures of the new kid on the block. I have affectionately nicknamed him the Hulk, as he weighs in at approximately 9-10 lbs, and is almost as tall as my 2 week old kids outside.

He is HUGE. In the goat world he is the equivalent of the TV newborn. You know how when on TV you see a 'newborn' but they are HUGE and you can tell that they aren't really 'newborn'? Well that is this kid.

The 'kudos' go to... and more kids

First off I'd like to congratulate the following readers for getting my song reference in yesterday's post.

- you were the first to get the reference. Oh I LOVE An Officer and A Gentleman too.

Rebecca- *nods* yup yup. I love the picture of the keyboard!

Secret Agent Mama- you get extra points because you completed the stanza and then some


Now on to the other news of the day. Star, our singular alpine doe kidded this afternoon with 2 kids. Unfortunately we had to have the doeling put to sleep almost immediately, as she was born with little/no eyes. She had sockets, but nothing in them. I am a firm believer in kindness to animals but there would have been no way that in nature this kid would survive on her own and I don't have that much extra time to put into a 'special needs' kid. Thankfully from the research that the vet and I did, it looks like this may have been one of those '1 in a million' things that just happen. He's going to talk to his colleagues tomorrow and get back to me with more. I promise I will have pictures later of the little black buckling later.

Oh and tonight I'm going out to a friends house to see a movie(a REAL movie that was released recently) I am SO excited. The last movie I saw in theaters was Enchanted, and before that I think it was The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. We're going to watch JUNO, which I have been dying to see as it hits kind of close to home for me.
