3 DAYS TO STARGATE : ATLANTIS, SEASON 2...
4 DAYS TO HARRY POTTER.
Uhhhm... yeah. Anyone know what kind of laptops they use on SGA? I know its Dell, pretty sure its Inspiron, but what model? *is a nerd and loves the SGA computers* Birthday coming up, its as likely a time as any to ask for a new compy. *sigh* A girl can dream.
Bertie Bott's has a new flavor! Two, actually. Bacon, and rotten eggs. Ugh. No one's eaten the vomit one yet, though there is a $15 bidding pool in it for them. Who knows, maybe it'll turn up in the 'grab bag' at Books-A-Million! Goodiness!
BUT ITS 3 DAYS TO SGA.
||[07 Jul 2005|09:49am]
Hi guys! This is my first time posting in some communities, and for that I'm sorry. (Introduces self : "Hi, I'm A.K., and I have a McKay addiction problem." "Hi, A.K.!")
I have a problem! Stargate : Atlantis, Season 1 is being reaired tomorrow allllll day, and for that I am infinitly grateful. Unfortunately, thats where my infinite gratefulness ends. I will only be home on Friday for the first half of the day, seeing episodes which I have already seen this year. Why haven't I seen the last half of the season? I am a very, very bad squee-ing fangirl. The second half of the school year was the beginning of my pre-cal class, and math is infinitly harder for me than it should be for anyone. :-/ I did not keep up with watching SGA.
Soooo, looking here at the Sci-Fi schedule, I will be out of pocket on Friday for these episodes : "The Storm", "The Eye", "Before I Sleep", and "The Brotherhood". I can catch the last four when they come on later in the night.
What am I asking?
Could anyone tape these episodes for me and upload them so that I could watch them? I have looked everywhere on the Internet for those sites where you can download episodes, but to no avail. :(
If it is too much trouble, I understand! But I would appreciate any help I can get- maybe you can point me to a site I might've overlooked.
Like I said, any help is appreciated, and I certainly hope to be more active in these communities now that summer is here!
(P.S. - Please post replies on my regular journal (octobersend) so I can have them all in one place, thankyou!)

...or as we say incorrectly to annoy The Frau, FROELICHES DANKESGEBEN.
Dankes = thankyou
Geben = to give
Incorrectly throw them together and you get a dumb-American, Frau-annoying, newly coined word for Thanksgiving auf Deutsch! Oh, the possibilities.
Anyways - meme from lots of journals.
There isn't a book around. Oh, wait, theres one stuffed down in my backpack.
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your own bulletin...along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the "coolest" book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.
(seeing as this book isn't long enough to have 123 pages, I will settle for page 23)
"As to the Males of every class, it may be roughly said the the length of an adult's sides, when added together, is two feet or a little more."
-"Flatland" by Edward A. Abbott
W00t, fun book.
Anyways... I'm working on "Leviathan"! Dontcha folks worry, nah, ya hee-ya?
Ok, Froeliches Puten Tag (Happy Turkey Day) and chow down, me hearties, yo ho!

Taken straight from Mikala's journal, since I'm so lazy and have no time to type my own sweet intro.
- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.
- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:
- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.
You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.
There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special."
( All I want for Christmas is...Collapse )

|Propaganda Project, Piece 1 - Pro
||[21 Nov 2004|07:26pm]
This is the first piece for my propaganda project in debate class.
We had to pick a controversial issue, write a paper on it, and create 4 pieces of propaganda on the computer using text and images, and utilizing two forms of propaganda in each one. There had to be two pro-issue pieces, and two con-issue pieces.
Me and my partner chose the topic of abortion... so did half the other groups. Oh well.
In this piece, I used the techniques of transfer ("Transfer is a device by which the propagandist carries over the authority, sanction, and prestige of something we respect and revere to something he would have us accept. For example, most of us respect and revere our church and our nation. If the propagandist succeeds in getting church or nation to approve a campaign in behalf of some program, he thereby transfers its authority, sanction, and prestige to that program. Thus, we may accept something which otherwise we might reject." - www.propagandacritic.com) and testimonial ("There is nothing wrong with citing a qualified source, and the testimonial technique can be used to construct a fair, well-balanced argument. However, it is often used in ways that are unfair and misleading. The most common misuse of the testimonial involves citing individuals who are not qualified to make judgements about a particular issue." - www.propagandacritic.com)
**** NOTE NOTE IMPORTANT NOTE*** - I have nothing against the ACLU. I just picked them for use as the "transfer" technique because they are a very active pro-choice union. However, they were formed to protect CONSTITUTIONAL rights. Abortion is not in the Constitution, so frankly, I see it as them sticking their nose where it doesn't belong. THIS IS MY OPINION, PLEASE DO NOT ENGAGE ME IN DEBATE ON MY JOURNAL. I respect your opinion, whatever it is, and I'm sorry if this offends you. But please, here is not the place.
On the same note, even though the name "The ACLU" appears on there, it IS NOT an official ACLU poster. I didn't even consult them. I don't work for them. Heck, why am I having to explain this? You people should know. Oh wait, yeah... law suits.
What a sad little world we live in.
So, without furthur ado, I present to you the first Pro-Abortion Propaganda Piece for my project.
Look out for the others soon!

I did like I've seen some other people do, and I got an LJ specifically for my artistic and literary endeavours. Here you'll find pieces of art at various stages of development, as well as rough drafts, ideas, and finished pieces of writing.
Please note : Some entries may be friends only! These are most likely writing pieces I am working on that I don't want too many people to be looking at and possibly picking up for their own. Most art will be publicly displayed.
So, bookmark this if you want the most recent updates of my writing and especially my art, because once I get my site up, only finished pieces will go on it.
Das ist alles!
