24 - Abandon by schmiss

Che cosa c'è di più celeste di un cielo che ha vinto mille tempeste?

I spoke to God today. And he spoke back. (It's addictive, I warned ya.).

I stumbled across this website. Is it just me or it kind of looks like my SC website? Even the descriptions of the categories match perfectly (minus the typos - I spellcheck, dammit). It kind of amused me. Oh, but I'm changing layout. Burn, bitch!

Last time I posted I forgot to write about something, now I don't remember what it was, even though I've been telling myself 'remember to talk about this next time you post'. Go figure.

Today's useless post ends here.

ADDENDUM: Why, oh why, The Sarah Connor Chronicles' season finale is already next week? Was it supposed to be a 10 episodes season from the beginning or it was affected by the WGA strike? Or it's being axed/cancelled? I just might cry.
Life - Badass by intodelirium

Promise to take me back to the tune we played before you went away.

So, apparently "Life" got a full season order. YAY! (So now Sarah Clarke's character can come back and marry Crews or something. :D Now that I've mentioned SC I feel a lot better.) NBC does make some good decision, sometimes. "Journeyman" got the two weeks notice instead... Just when I was starting to like it.

Anyways.

Reunion dinner with my middle school friends was awesome. Someone couldn't make it, but the most part of the class was there. It was so weird seeing how time has changed some of them and how others haven't changed at all. Like, the boys where exactly the same. I won the award for the one who changed the most. Didn't have the courage to ask if it was in a good way... :P
It was 8 years since we last saw each other. I mean, I personally kept in touch with a bunch of them, but lost contact with most. And was just so cool to get back together after so much time and find out what we've been doing all these years. 
We left promising each other not to wait another 8 years to get together for another reunion dinner. :)

The other day I called my denstist cuz I haven't been seeing her in two years, so it feels like it's time for a check up. Actually, I've been having this feeling that something is somehow wrong... I mean, I don't have any caries or anything, never had one, but I don't know. It's a feeling, you know. We've been working so hard to get my teeth pretty and shiny and we wouldn't want it ruined just because I noticed something was off and didn't say anything. Besides, I trust her with my life. If she said "we have to remove all your teeth cuz it's best that way", I'd be like "Yes ma'am. Let's do it."
So I called the dentist's office and I spoke with the secretary. It turned out to be most embarassing conversation ever.
SECRETARY: So, you're already scheduled for an appointment next year, around June.
ME: Yeah, I know, but it's been two years already and I just want to make sure everything's alright.
SECRETARY: What, is anything wrong?
ME: No, no. I hope not.
SECRETARY: So, what's up?
ME: I don't know, it's just a feeling...
SECRETARY: A... feeling?
ME: Yeah, like... I just wanna make sure.
SECRETARY: A feeling like... a sixth sense?
ME: (I don't see this ending well...) Sort of. Maybe.
SECRETARY: What kind of sixth sense?
ME: (Look, I'd REALLY really love to tell you everything about my feeling, but) I'm sorry, I'm calling from my cellphone and I'm running out of money, would you please--
SECRETARY: Sure, of course. Lemme see when the doctor has a free hour for you...
Awkward. She must have thought I was on crack or something. Or she was.
The funny thing is I lost the post-it where I wrote the day of the appointment, so I'm gonna have to call in again and ask when was it. I just hope there's another secretary today.

I'm writing an imaginary essay called "Truths about TV". It's nothing serious, don't worry. I started writing it while analyzing my dad's crazy zapping. Hopefully it'll turn out silly enough and I'll post it here.


P.S: Those of my fl who are fans of Sarah and considered sending something in for the Sarah-Clarke.net calendar project, now's the time (or it's the time to start working on something and send it soon :P). There's also the chance to win pretty things. :)

I'll try to do it right this time around.

1. Sarah Clarke's fans: Calendar Project everybody!

2. I'm learning new Swedish words reading the IKEA catalog. Except, I don't know what they mean. So if I say "hej, I saw your nmoln today. It looked very bekväm." would you just nod, please? Thanks.
What I like about IKEA is that everything is pretty cheap but looks very stylish, so you could invite your friends over, show them your new furniture and say "that couch was designed by a very important French artist, the name's Ikeé-Ha." and the smart one would be like "yeah, I've heard of him" and since you're always smarter you'd say "Her. It's a woman." and the apparently-not-so-smart friend would reply "Right. Ikeé-ah. Of course" and you'd win anyway. If I could I'd really fill my house with IKEA's stuff. And I'd feel very Swedish then.
Yes, that's what I do when I'm in the bathroom: I read the IKEA catalog and imagine showing my friends my non-existent IKEA furniture and making up that that is a couch by a famous French artist.

2b. Question that have been torturing me ever since that IKEA thing: why pretty much all famous Swedish people don't look Swedish at all? Lena Olin? Peter Stormare? Hello, blond hair, blue eyes anyone? Oh, and above all, soccer player Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He looks terribly Swedish.

3. I bought Isabella Rossellini's book "Some of me". Ok, this of no interest for any of you but whenidream maybe. I was curious how she would explain her dressing like she does and looking very gay. She writes how one day she was at the Lancôme's boss (or something, can't remember exactly) house, having dinner and at some point she needed to use the bathroom and so passed by his bedroom and saw his closet open and took a look inside. It was all graysh suits. And realizing her current wardrobe was all jeans and tshirts and she was getting famous so she needed something else too, right, she suddenly thought "wow, I want something like that, too." Except, hello? Isabella, you're a woman.
I remember I read somewhere online that when she's at home she likes to wear French pajamas that everybody thinks are clothes. I guess that explains why she goes at public events wearing dresses that look like pajamas. There is a logic here.

3b. Remember not to invite Isabella Rossellini over: she'll snoop around in your closet.

4. I forgot.

5. I'm pretty sure I had somehting else to say.

6. Well, I was wrong. Heh.

I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules.

Oh man, global warming kills. Lemme switch on the air conditioner. Please. *cries*

So, this morning I realized I haven't updated the website in two weeks. I'm that bad. *shakes head* I felt that guilty that today I wrote down Sarah's season 2 interview from "24: The Official Companion season 1 and 2" and did an update with that.
"I loved the airplane scene! The sequence where I killed Faheen with the gift card was so complicated. I remember the actor playing my bodyguard on the plane marveling, because, at one point, we have this conversation going on betweem Jack and his daughter nad Mason; then we have my Arabic going on with Faheen. There was no way for the director to cue us because I was supposed to be saying these things that are being translated, so everyone had to be doing this weird listening. Meanwhile, Faheen has no idea what is being said. I'm shackled and I had to lean down and tap his knee to cue him to get really upset. I remember my bodyguard was going, 'Whoa, there's all this communication going on and I have no idea what's happening!'
"Those scenes in particular are when Kiefer is really good. What I loved playing in Nina was when Jack would get really mad and I would get even more liquid and pay it blasé, and it would just get him even angrier," she laughs.
More...

And since we're at it, her season 1 interview is pretty cool too:
One of the more low-key, but incredibly important confrontations of the season was the conversation at the safe house between Nina and Teri. Previously friendly with one another, their conversation quickly goes downhill when it comes out that Nina had an affair with Jack during the Bauer separation.
The subsequent tense tête-à-tête between the women became a favorite scene for the actresses. Sarah Clarke says, "We were very proud of that scene and really happy that the producers realized that it was necessary." Leslie Hope concurs, "It was one of my favorite scenes, so watching Sarah play the scene, and what she did with it, was so good!"
More...

Sarah needs to be on TV soon wtf. She is supposed to be in a play in LA but I still can't find anything about it. And it's in LA so I can't go there anyway, so TV's better. :P

Not much to say today... I'm just waiting for the F1 Grand Prix to finish so I can go and watch some episodes of MillenniuM. Watched yesterday probably the best episode ever "The Curse of Frank Black" and the key character was played by Oz's Dean Winters. So good.

And downloading Battlestar Galactica.

There are more links than words in this post. I think I set a new record. Bye.
