1. Another Stargate SG-1 random marathon! Hells yes! And they're playing the very first episode! HOORAY!! I haven't seen this episode in forever. I love Dr. Daniel Jackson's floppy hair!

2. I totally just wrote "After he says this, Stingo feels like an asshole." Then moved on, wrote the rest of the paragraph, reread said paragraph and was like "Probably shouldn't phrase it like that in a paper." Stingo totally feels like an asshole at that point of Sophie's Choice that I'm talking about though.

Hello totally random Stargate SG-1 marathon! I will watch you!

Goodbye finals! I will ignore you until tomorrow, when I freak out over having very little time to write my final paper for Southern Renaissance.

Seriously though, SyFy (I miss the days when it was Skiffy) is just playing random episodes of Stargate SG-1. I feel like there is no rhyme or reason for which episodes their playing. I remember the days when I couldn't watch a Stargate SG-1 marathon without seeing that one Hathor episode at least once.

Oh, Stargate. How I've missed you. Too bad I could never get into the spin-off series.

I'm pretty sure the only thing that kept me watching was Dr. Daniel Jackson. He's awesome.

I just really do not want to write 4-6 pages about Faulkner, O'Connor, Welty, and/or Styron. Especially since I spent all of yesterday bullshitting my way through a final almost completely based on Dracula and King Solomon's Mines, which I did not read at all for Victorian Lit.

Why aren't you over yet, semester!

ETA: Eww... A Season 6 episode just came on. I guess this is the universe's way of telling me to get to work. :-(

1. Mumford & Sons, where have you been all my life? I'm freaking in love with this band right now. I just want to listen to their songs 24/7 forever and ever.

2. Am I the only person in the world who hates River Song from Doctor Who? I honestly feel like she is the worst character to ever be on the show, including Series One!Mickey.

Part of this is because I still ship The Doctor/Rose. Listen, Rose was my first companion so she will always be awesome in my eyes. And since she and The Doctor were in love their story will forever be better than any other romantic story involving The Doctor. Also, every female The Doctor has ever met has fallen in love with him, with the exception of Donna (which is why I loved her oh so very much), so that storyline is a snoozer.

Then there's the fact that the audience does not actually know River Song, and will never know her really because she's been introduced backwards. Which I understand is the point of her story, but it just hasn't been done very well in my opinion. It's all like "She's awesome, so think she's awesome!" but we're not shown why she's awesome. Oh so she has a gun and shoots things. Great. So did everyone on Torchwood and I hated 75% of the cast on that show. And then I see people shoot stuff on every other show that's on American television. Not very impressive.

And the only character I've ever liked on Doctor Who that was an out-and-out flirt was Captain Jack, and well, River Song is no Captain Jack Harkness.

I just don't see the point of River Song and she's already dead in my mind and I wish she would just be dead.

She's ruining the show for me. I'm not amused by her.

And that is my rant.

Back to studying for finals.
