mellicious: Yoda: "Post every day you will" (yoda)
It's Christmas, as far as I'm concerned. We're even having Chinese food afterwards.

(We work til 9:30 on Friday so that left a tight window to go to any movie then. We just got the tickets for 7:00 Saturday instead.)

I don't think I mentioned that I actually read the Rogue One "prequel" book that came out a month or so ago. It's called Catalyst. It's not a great book but it was pretty interesting. I wouldn't recommend it to anybody but rabid Star Wars fans, really. It's the backstory of Jyn's childhood and how her father - who wasn't at all interested in weapons design - got roped into the Death Star project. It has a lot of back and forth between Galen, her father, and Orson Krennic, who's trying to get a weapon built for the Death Star. Kind of the most interesting part was a lot of detail thrown in here and there about the building of the Death Star. It took them years and years to build it (which is logical but I've never heard anybody say so before) - they started out with a flat circle and built from there, and the early part all had to be done by robots since there was no air. That was honestly the part I liked the best, not all the bickering and politics between Galen and Lyra (Jyn's mother) and Krennic and Tarkin. I'll be interested to see how much of that backstory made it into the movie.


Added after seeing the movie: having read the book did help me understand why Krennic pretty clearly went into the confrontation at the beginning of the movie planning to shoot Lyra unless she shut up and came quietly. He blamed her for - well, basically he was trying to pull the wool over Galen's eyes about what he (Krennic) was trying to do with Galen's research, and she kept making Galen wake up and see. And she masterminded the getaway scheme that resulted in them escaping the Empire (temporarily) and taking up farming.


I went and looked and Rogue One made $29 million on Thursday night previews, which is not surprising, really.

I watched "The Force Awakens" just now, since I am so firmly in Star Wars mode. Oh, and also I put on my Star Wars nail polish - which I actually forgot about last year. It's called These Are Not The Droids You're Looking For. I was already wearing dark-blue polish so it goes really well over that.

Okay, I said I was sort of "meh" about Shadowhunters the TV series, but I actually watched it again and I was still (mostly) interested, so I guess I liked it more than I thought, really. So I have Thoughts, which are not going to be really deep or anything, most likely. I was thinking about the cast of the movie vs the cast of the TV series (vs maybe also the books), so let's see...

and oh, right, SPOILERS (if you haven't seen Shadowhunters pilot, or y'know, read the books - I guess I'll put the rest it behind a cut, just to be polite)

I said I was going to use my LJ to try to keep up with movies, but maybe I'll talk about TV also. I haven't been watching a lot of TV lately, in general, but this week while Rob has been gone I've done an unusually large amount of binge-watching, spread out among several different series.

1. Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell
This is a 7-part miniseries of a book that I've read and re-read over the past few years. I had seen the first episode and liked it, but I failed to set the DV-R and I didn't get episode 2 when it was on BBC-A last summer, and I refused to watch it out of order. So finally I saw that it was available on Amazon (I think it's on DVD as well) and caved and bought it. I started to buy one episode at a time, but I figured I would end up watching it all and I did. It got the gist of the book quite well. It's a big book and it took some telescoping of events to fit it into 7 hours, but basically I think they did it justice. I have plenty of small quibbles (for example, it's repeatedly said in the book that Jonathan Strange is not handsome, but here he rather definitely is. But that doesn't really especially affect the plot, I have to admit) but no really gigantic ones.

2. Mozart in the Jungle
I had never even heard of this until it started winning Golden Globes the other night (I believe my actual comment to Col in Trove chat was along the lines of "wtf is Mozart in the Jungle?") but it turned out to be about classical musicians in NYC. I have a music background and so this right up my alley. I loved it. It's on Amazon Prime, which I already had, so it didn't require any additional cash layout.

And then that made me think of the other Amazon Prime series I was already aware that I hadn't watched, and that was (of course)...

3. Transparent
Honestly, I had a mixed reaction to this. I loved Maura and wanted the series to spend much more time with her and much less with her whiny children. I watched the first three or four episodes (I forget; it was late) and I'll keep going but I really only love about 25% of it.

Oh, and one more, although this was on network TV (on the former ABC Family, which has some new name that I've already forgotten) and is just starting so no bingewatching:

4. Shadowhunters
I can't say that the first episode was good enough to make me want to binge-watch, anyway. But it was better than the movie (which was The Mortal instruments: City of Bones) - which is to say, not absolutely awful. And I love these books, so I'll keep watching at least for a while. (I guess this is one of those products of the New Age of Entertainment or whatever: has there ever previously been a failed movie which was immediately picked up and made into a TV series? Maybe there has, but I can't think of one, offhand. But then, Cassie Clare's books have a huge and mostly young fandom, and if they can successfully tap into that it'll all be gravy.)

(NOTE; I think this will become pretty clear, but this is nothing to do with the entries I've been doing for Holidailies. I got to poking around, and there are a lot of "Friday five" quizzes about quilting that I did in a quilting community that is inactive and that I thought at first might have been deleted. So I thought I would gather these here, where they'll be archived with the rest of my stuff. There's a lot of information gathered in them that I'm tending to forget, now.)

Here's where the original is.

1. Have you ever participated in a Mystery Quilt project? I started to say "no" - but actually I took a class from Charlotte Angotti once, and that was essentially what it was.

2. What concerns do you have with doing a Mystery Quilt? That I won't like the quilt when it's done!

3. Have you ever finished a mystery project (share picture, pretty please?)? I sure did. The one time I did one, I did finish it. I'll put the picture at the end. (Although I'm sure I've posted this one before - it's kinda my pride and joy.)

4. Do you enjoy reading mystery genre books? Yup. I've been reading Anne Perry's two Victorian-era mystery series for the last several years - I'm finally about to run out of them. I like the Sue Grafton alphabet mysteries quite a lot, too.

5. Do you like surprises? Y'know, I am kinda iffy about them, really. If the person trying to surprise me really knows me well enough to know what I like, then yes. Otherwise, it's a big waste of time and money.


This is available as a commercial pattern called "Faceted Jewels" so I called my purple version "Faceted Amethysts". (That links to the uncropped Flickr version of this picture, in case anybody wants to see more. This pattern is much easier than it looks.)

(ADDED: that last link doesn't work, but the picture is still there, somewhere.)

Apparently I am reading Twilight. I don't know what got into me. I've had it on my Kindle for more than a year, and I basically only bought it to mock it in the first place, one day when Amazon had it on sale for $1.99 or maybe it was $2.99 - and I never got past the first chapter. But tonight I didn't have anything to read and I picked up the Kindle and started idly reading bits out loud to Rob, and I'm afraid now I might be hooked. I'm not sure it's really that I'm hooked on the book per se, but more that I remember the movie from the one time I saw it (with Rifftrax accompaniment) and I know bits and pieces from what other people say, too, and now I'm curious about how it all fits together. We'll see how far I get. Maybe I'll go hunt down Mark Reads Twilight for my edification.

(The writing at the beginning is really not all that horrible, but I've read enough here and there that I know for a fact that it gets worse.)

We went to see The King's Speech this afternoon - I liked it more than I expected to. I liked it quite a lot, actually, and the rest of the audience seemed to too. The theater was almost full, too. I have been looking up various members of the royal family on Wikipedia ever since I got home.

I didn't come straight home, though, I dropped Rob off and went and got a sandwich at Schlotzsky's and then went to Starbucks, where I read about OB/Gyn codes for a couple of hours, in preparation for my interview on Tuesday. (Today I read about procedure codes, and tomorrow I need to do diagnosis codes; then I'll be as prepared as I reasonably can be, I think.)

I've apparently gotten over yesterday's relapse. I'm still sucking on cough drops, but that's not so bad. I always manage to be sick sometime between Christmas and New Year's, that's just inevitable.

I hear that the Texans actually won today - I suppose it taped, so I guess I'll have to watch it this time, instead of erasing it like I've been doing most of the year. Usually I've already heard before I get around to watching that they lost, and then it's too depressing to watch it. I'm just not enough of a masochist for that.

Minor Spoilers for Those Damn Martin Books )

I talked Rob into going out to eat with me tonight, and going to Half Price Books afterwards. I can't ever get him to go anywhere on work nights - I don't even try any more - but since he doesn't have to work tomorrow, I kidnapped him as soon as we got home and we went and ate Italian (just for fun, we went to a different Italian restaurant than the one we normally go to!) and then went book shopping. I completely forgot to buy anything for my father - that tells you how disconnected I've been from my normal Christmas preparations this year, 'cause normally I think of things like that a lot earlier in the process than December 23rd. I almost always buy my dad books, thus the trip to Half Price - they always have a good selection of the kind of thing he's interested in. Don't ask me the name of the book I bought - something about the days leading up to Pearl Harbor. My dad says himself that I have a good track record for picking books he'll like, so hopefully this one will work.

Jay Thomas is on Letterman right now, telling a story that I've heard before, I'm pretty sure. Maybe it's part of the Christmas tradition, along with throwing footballs. (Letterman seems to have a lot of Christmas traditions, after all these years. Wonder if Paul has done his Cher imitation yet.)

I mentioned something about nail polish and small children's gifts, or something to that effect, yesterday. I meant to talk about the highly important subject of my Christmas-green nail polish, I think, which I am now going to have to re-do, or at least touch up, because my nails have pink and purple paint stuck to them, from said small children's gifts. I had to go and buy something that needs painting. (I am still working on this. I'll try to remember to take a picture when I get done. I hope to god these gifts are not totally embarrassing in the end. Of course the kids in question, who are quite small, will probably think they're great no matter what.)

Stuff about A Game of Thrones, with one fairly mild spoiler. )

(Friday)
I just accidentally swallowed a cherry stone, and I'm having this totally irrational fear that a cherry tree is going to start growing out my ears. My grandmother - and possibly my mother, too - used to tell us an old wives' tale to that effect when we were kids. Although I think it was oranges, not cherries, at the time.

I've been doing Jade Quarry all night in GuildWars. I had never done it at all until about a week ago, because when I tried before there were never people available to fill up both sides to do it. (It's a sort of a hybrid PvP-mission kind of thing. You're playing against other players, but you also have an objective you have to do. In this case it's about keeping control of (guess what) jade quarries, and whoever gets a certain amount of jade back to their base first wins.) Columbine may be surprised to hear that I was doing this because we never used to do these missions. But I've been racking up the faction and I may get the Friend of the Luxons title this weekend if I keep it up.

(Saturday)
Rob asked me what I wanted for Christmas. Usually he gets me things like DVDs and sometimes a piece of jewelry, and I usually wrap up a couple of odds and ends I bought for myself, if I suspect I need it to balance things out. (I sort of try to make our gifts to one another match in size, if you know what I mean - I usually buy him a bunch of books and DVDs, and he tells me what to buy there, too. So I figure the expenditure should be more or less consistent for each of us, although I'm not stringent about it at all. In fact I don't really total it up at all except in the very roughest way. Some years my stuff costs a bit more, some years his does.) This year is a bit different, though, because of me not working, and while we're not out of money, we are definitely watching the purse-strings much more carefully now than we were. So when I thought of getting a Kindle I thought no, that's too expensive. Only it turns out that I have quite a large credit with Amazon, almost large enough to pay for the whole thing, if I get the Wi-Fi one. Although I'm thinking I might even go for the 3G one. The amount we'd have to pay in cash to get the 3G version would be roughly in the range of say, the MST3K box set I've got put away for Rob, anyway. Anybody have any opinion on this? If you do, speak up fast, I may be ordering something soon. (Too late, already, that ship has sailed. I got the 3G.) They say "In stock" but I don't entirely trust them. (Late word: I got an e-mail already that says that it has shipped, due in Wednesday.)

Poor Rob got called in to work today. That's been happening pretty regularly lately, at least sort of once a month or so. He went in and worked about 5 or 6 hours, but he told them that if the person who was missing doesn't come in tomorrow, they're going to have to find somebody else to cover then. Which I think is wise. We can use the OT, sure, but he needs a day off, too.


One of the things I've been reading, or re-reading (do you consider it re-reading if you listened to the audiobook the first time?) is A Game of Thrones, and I just stumbled onto replicas of the swords in the book, on Amazon. I guess I should not be surprised, but I am. Wonder if these were around before HBO announced the miniseries.

Anyway, here's Arya's sword Needle, for example. (I've started on the 2nd book but I'm not even far into it. So if you have anything to say about those books, be careful with spoilers, please! I would welcome non-spoilery discussion.)

Anybody want a lemur for their profile page? Seriously, I get some free ones, apparently. (I mislaid the link but you should be able to look in the LJ store if you want to know what they look like.)

I'm back to going to Starbucks every afternoon and sitting for at least an hour or so and studying. Except now I'm working on continuing education units instead of studying for the certification test. I figure if I finally get an interview I need to be able to talk the up-to-date talk, and when I get a job it'll be good to be ahead on the CEUs, because I have to have 18 hours by January, which sounds like a lot to me.

I finished reading North and South - it was 500 pages of small print and I blew through it in two days so I think that tells you I liked it. I was worried it was going to be hard going (I think I was worried that it might go on excessively about the working conditions of 19th-century mill workers) but it wasn't. Now I want to watch the miniseries again. Actually I have threatened to make Rob watch the miniseries but I don't know if I'll follow through on that.

I made some little resin pendants - it's the first jewelry I've made in ages. It's harder to get the resin to work correctly than the tutorials would have you believe, but they look cute, anyway. If I ever get any pictures taken I'll put up a link. Next I need to drag out all of the skull beads that I've been collecting and make some necklaces so I can sell them in the fall. I took down my Etsy store because I wasn't doing the work to promote it and thus I wasn't selling anything, but I think the skull necklaces would sell, if I'll just get around to making them. (Fall feels like a long way away right now but of course it'll be here before we know it.)

(Speaking of Etsy and skulls, I bought these earrings which are the cutest thing ever. They just came today; they are incredibly light and they really truly don't seem to have sharp edges, although I'm not clear on how they manage that.)
mellicious: Narnia witch in a carriage pulled by polar bears, captioned "OMGWTFPOLARBEAR!" (Default)
I'm watching Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which I must never have seen since it was first out; I don't remember much of it. (I got it for Christmas.) (Also, every time they show Dumbledore I think "Groovy new Dumbledore!" which is from [livejournal.com profile] m15m  but apparently not from the Goblet parody.)

I read a book this afternoon - a pretty short one - it was Holes, which won a Newbury (or is it Newberry?) award a while back, and I think was made into a movie at some point, also. It was good, although it was considerably different than I was expecting. Somewhere along the line I formed the impression that it was going to have a lot more fantasy-type content than it actually did. I think I thought they were going to fall through the bottom of one of the holes or something; I don't know where I got that idea. But I liked it, just the same.

It's actually the second book this week which I've sat down and read in one sitting - the other one was a Dresden Files book - I think it was called Grave Peril, and it's about the third one. I've had it for some time, and I don't know why I hadn't gotten around to reading it before. They're always very entertaining books.

We went to Half-Price Books the other day when they were having their sale that they have a couple of times a year, mostly to buy something for my dad, but they had three Anne Perry books I hadn't read - and there aren't too many of those left - so I bought all three. Hopefully I won't feel the need to read any of those at one sitting; I think they take somewhat longer.

(I wrote up some stuff about the Terminator movie last night but I'll put that in a separate post, it got rather long.)
mellicious: Narnia witch in a carriage pulled by polar bears, captioned "OMGWTFPOLARBEAR!" (Dr Who - adipose)
So I finished my Medical Terminology class, and I have a certificate for it and everything (I think my final grade was 98), and now I'm on to Anatomy. I actually signed up for the Anatomy class a couple of months ago, some of you may remember, and I took a couple of tests before I decided that it was too slow to do both classes at the same time, and so I went ahead and finished the other one instead. I think I had already taken three anatomy tests - and last night I took a fourth one. It covered three chapters, all on the nervous system (one chapter on the brain, one on the spinal cord and peripheral nerves, and one on the autonomic nervous system) and so I was kind of worried since that's a lot of material - but it was easy, it turned out, and I got every question right. (If it was not open-book I would not have made a 100, because I just have not gotten the numbering system down on the cranial nerves, mnemonics or not.)

Rob is on vacation the rest of the week, and we are going to see Terminator: Salvation in a few minutes. I know it didn't get great reviews, but most of the people who've actually seen it (the ones who aren't critics, that is) seem to like it okay. I'll have to report back later.

I've been re-reading A Little Princess and now I want to see that movie again. Maybe Amazon has it cheap! But I'll have to look at that later, too, because right now I have to go.


(Incidentally, I wrote this before I saw that Col was complaining about nobody posting. But here you go, Col, anyway!)
mellicious: Narnia witch in a carriage pulled by polar bears, captioned "OMGWTFPOLARBEAR!" (Xmas excess)
Things that made me happy today:
-- coffee
-- the necklace I made to give my mother-in-law (blue and green Czech glass)
-- reading So You Want to Be a Wizard (more A Wrinkle In Time than Harry Potter, but good)
-- shopping, even though I didn't buy much
-- the holiday decorations on the gigantic houses in the River Oaks area in Houston
-- sourdough bread from Central Market


So I made my more-or-less annual trip into the horror that is Houston traffic today to go shopping. The traffic wasn't really too too horrible, and in fact I drove around considerably more than I really needed to, just to look around. In fact, I think it's fair to say that the purpose of these trips is as much to get in the holiday mood as much as it is to actually shop. I generally do get some shopping done, just the same. (See last year's entry for actual numbers, although I didn't spend anything like that amount today.)

I usually do this on a Thursday or Friday, and so I was trying to decide how much of the reduced foot-traffic I saw today was the economy, and how much was just that it was Tuesday. I suspect it was both. There were a lot of parking spaces at Highland Village, but the stores I went in mostly seemed to be doing decent business - except for West Elm, which was almost deserted. There were a lot of people in Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel - particularly the latter. There was an exceptional number of very fashionably-dressed women in Pottery Barn, but that may just be that women like that don't work and so they're free to wander around shopping on weekdays. Or maybe it has something to do with that this particular Pottery Barn is about two doors down from Tootsie's, a very chi-chi women's clothing store. I don't know. Usually I buy some ornaments and stuff like that at one place or another, but today I didn't. That might have partly had to do with the economy, too - or it might just be that I can't really justify buying ornaments for the tree I haven't bothered to put up.

I spent the most money in Central Market, actually. I don't think I'd been in there in a couple of years, and I'd forgotten how much stuff they keep around this time of year that's gift-able. We are supposed to be holding down our gift-giving to the minimum this year, more or less, but I sabotaged that by buying, among other things, a big jug of maple syrup for Rob. (Is that a weird gift? He had expressed interest in having some, and it's very expensive. [livejournal.com profile] columbina has already informed me that giving my father-in-law apples is a rather odd choice, but Rob came up with that idea so I don't take any responsibility. I just bought some nice organic apples that looked like they might survive the trip, and I added some locally-grown honey to it, that seemed like something most people would like.) (Also, I pointed out to Col that if the apples came from Harry and David and cost about three times as much, nobody would think it was odd at all. Which he agreed was a valid point.)


Something I noticed on the tollway coming home - and to a certain extent in Houston proper - is the number of roofs still held together by blue tarps. There are still quite a lot of them, three months after the storm.


Today's Holidailies prompt was "Write the annual holiday card/brag letter for your family." but I have already done that. (And I wouldn't exactly call it a "brag letter" except in the sense of "Can you top this?" -- Which, come to think of it, is one reason I didn't send it to people who are local - because many of them can.)

I don't think I've done this one recently.

01. What are your nicknames?
Mel is a nickname, as are mellificent and mellicious and all the silly variations. Those are the main ones these days.

Will somebody please tell me what was supposed to be so great about The Court of the Air? I finished it, because I was determined to (and because I paid I-forget-how-many dollars for the hardback), but ugh. It had some good bits in it, here and there, but mostly it was a mess. I totally don't get it.


In other questions, I came in for the end of McCain's speech, and there was a lot of screaming and there certainly are a lot of balloons, but it sounded like a whole bunch of platitudes strung together. Did I miss anything more interesting? (Despite the screaming, the placard-wavers didn't even seem that enthusiastic, to tell you the truth.)

I got tagged by [personal profile] columbina  earlier today, but ignored it at the time, because the books available at work are just too boring. I was thinking that at home I would end up with The Blue Sword or something (which is what I've been (re)reading) but no, when I remembered it, the closest book at hand was not exactly that.

From page 123:

"Place both ends of the chain through the hole in the shell, front to back. Slip the ends through the loop before you pull it through. Tighten the slip knot so that the circle hangs securely."

(This might be much more interesting if you pretend that you don't know it's talking about a necklace. But unfortunately, it's actually from Bead Simple: Essential Techniques for Making Jewelry Just the Way You Want It.)
mellicious: Narnia witch in a carriage pulled by polar bears, captioned "OMGWTFPOLARBEAR!" (VMars - surprise)
I have been reading "Wicked" and I finished earlier. I thought it ended awfully abruptly, although of course you knew all along how it had to end. (Although don't I recall somebody saying that they tinkered with the ending for the musical?) Anyway, I had had a previous try with it as a Book on Tape, and I only got about halfway through - but Books on Tape are problematic for me due to my very short commute. It takes ages for me to finish anything if I'm listening in the car, so I don't think it was that I didn't like it, exactly, I just lost steam. With the paperback I plowed right through it in a few days. I will have to start again and go slower. (I think that means that I liked it, don't you?)

Also, I never got around to saying that we went to see "Sweeney Todd" on Sunday - neither of us had seen the musical so we didn't exactly know what to expect, but we both liked it. But then we have always both been Tim Burton fans, and of course Rob loves things like Hammer films so that kind of Grand Guignol stuff is really right up his alley. I didn't have any problem with the singing - Johnny Depp turned out to be a better singer than Ms Bonham-Carter, definitely, but I thought her little wispy voice worked pretty well, on the whole.

We have shiny new digital cable so we have been watching BBC America and things like Indieplex, some. We watched two Torchwood episodes Saturday night, and then Graham Norton afterwards, which was really a hoot. I am not a Doctor Who fan in a huge way like some of you people on my f-list, so I wasn't sure whether I would get into Torchwood or not, but I like what I've seen so far. More X-Files-ish than Doctor-ish, on the whole.

And then[personal profile] nonelvis went and linked elsewhere to the trailer for the new series, which I couldn't bear not to watch. I know all the big Torchwood fans have seen it already, but there may be some Spike fans who have missed it, so I will see if I can get it to embed correctly (my first YouTube link!):

OK, ok, here's the damn sci-fi meme. Actually I had read more of them than I would have guessed - albeit, for many of them, so far back in the mists of time that I barely remember them. (And a couple of them were sort of wild guesses - "Well, I'm pretty sure I read that one.")

My customary procedure when asked "Did you love this book/movie?" is to use my initial reaction to it. So a star may mean I loved it when I was 13, not necessarily that I love it now.

It might be instructive to add to this, "Which of these have you read more than once?" Let's see, for me that narrows it down to 1, 2 (I think), 3, 5, 13, 23 (to my shame), 26, 27, 29, 30, 39, 41, and 50 - a considerably shorter list. (Also, I have been wanting to read #43 again, but I can't find my damn copy. I'm gonna end up buying it again, I know it.)

I need reading material to take to Ohio with me - something reasonably fluffy and preferably something long. (I keep thinking of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, which probably isn't most people's idea of fluffy, but something of that ilk would do. If there is any such thing.)
