Happy-Thanksgiving-Day.-Picture-Card-1

By some quirk of fate, my beloved Steelers play tonight, Christmas Day and New Year's Day \o/

Now that's a holiday celebration!

What I'm grateful for this year is that I'm spending this holiday with not one person who voted for Trump! My family is of above average intelligence ;)

Cons

So, this year I was originally slated to attend 8 cons.

Cleveland WW was cancelled due to weather. I did go to Sherlocked. Star Trek in June was cancelled because Karl Urban cancelled and Colm Meaney was appearing too late on Sunday evening (my flight home was at the same time and would have cost $400 to change).

I went to Shore Leave and Stargate Chicago. I did not go to WW Chicago because Matt Ryan and Arthur Darville cancelled :(

Dragon Con is coming up this weekend. Really looking forward to seeing John Noble, Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie from Sleepy Hollow, as well as my favorite person, DAVID HEWLETT :D

Then, more disappointment, because Colm Meaney cancelled his appearance at WW Pittsburgh....

However!!!

They added Mitch Pileggi and David Duchovny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, this is the best news :D I can't wait!

And in October, it's off to London to see Benedict in Hamlet (twice), Mark Gatiss in Two Days in the Country, and John Finnemore's Souvenir Cabin!! Also Madame Tussauds, London Eye, Speedy's and Stonehenge are on the must do list. And the National Gallery to see any Van Gogh they have, and the Celtic exhibit at the British Museum.

P.S. So happy with the Cumberbaby info: Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch, born 6/1/15 \o/ LOVE the alliteration, the use of Ben and his dad's middle name, and the connection Christopher has to Ben's career. Perfect choice :)

This is my favorite time of year. Football season is underway, hockey is not far behind, the weather is perfect.

I am still working on home renovation. Finally got a decent quote for flooring, now I just have to find time to have it installed, lol. Kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanity are next on the list.

So, what are you all up to?!

Tonight my beloved Steelers play for the AFC North Title, and a home game in the first round of the playoffs, against the Cincinnati Bungles Bengals! Unbelievable! I thought they would be 8-8 at best, not in the playoffs (they are whether or not they win tonight). YAY! It's been 2 post season droughts for our team.

GO STEELERS!!

And here is a funny email my mother forwarded to me, lol


Second Female POTUS

The year is 2024 and the United States has just elected its second female President of the United States.
A few days after the election, the president-elect calls her father in Pittsburgh and asks,
"So, Dad, I assume you will be coming to my inauguration?

"I don't think so. It's a long drive; your mom isn't as young as she used to be,
we'll have the dog with us, and my arthritis is acting up in my knee."

"Don't worry about it, Dad, I'll send Air Force One to pick you up and take you home,
and a limousine will pick you up at your door," she said.

"I don't know. Everybody will be so fancy. What would your mother wear?"
"Oh, Dad," she replied, "I'll make sure she has a wonderful gown custom-made by one of the best designers in N.Y."
"Honey," Dad complained, "You know we can't eat those rich foods you and your friends like to eat."
The President-elect responded, "Don't worry, Dad. The entire affair is going to be handled by the best caterer in D.C. And I'll ensure your meals are salt-free.
So her parents reluctantly agreed, and on Jan. 20, 2024 arrived to see their daughter sworn in as President of the United States. The parents of the new President are seated in the front row. The President's dad sees that a Senator is sitting next to him and leans over and whispers, "You see that woman up there with her hand on the Bible, becoming President of the United States?" The Senator whispered in reply, "Yes, sir, I sure do."

Dad says proudly, "Well, her brother played football for the Pittsburgh Steelers!”

haha

Last night I was lucky enough to see The Imitation Game presented by the Three Rivers Film Festival.

It was wonderful. Benedict was perfection. It was funny and suspenseful and heartbreaking. I cannot recommend it more highly; go see it when it's released. I will definitely be seeing it again!

A powerful film with a message that the world needs to hear.

And now I'm going to watch the Steelers beat the Jets to remain in first place in the AFC North :D

Of course, the Steelers lost to the worst team in the NFL. Typical. Inconsistent as always :/

So...

The Steelers are in first place in the AFC North.

LMAO, how did that happen?! We have no defense. We take too many penalties.

The rest of the schedule is in our favor; if they win the games they should, and Cincy continues to bungle their way along, the Steelers could make the playoffs!

I would be happy to be wrong in my prediction of an average season, lol

:D

As a treat to myself because my new job is going so well and I'm making so much more money now than I have for 3 years, I bought these:

http://www.bigchiefstudios.co.uk/store/sherlock/sixth-scale-figures/sherlock-holmes-and-dr-john-watson-numbered-pair

product-feature-sh-1_6-john-watson-side
product-feature-sh-1_6-sherlock-holmes-side

Ridiculously expensive and unfortunately not the signed versions that are sold out, but awesome \o/

I also preordered the box set of Blu Rays/DVDs with the busts, lol.

I'm just a little obsessed :)

I've also been spending a little here and there on practical items, like new dishes and flatware, cookware, bedding, towels, etc that were sorely needed but I just didn't want to spend money on. I'm saving a lot too, so I can get some new flooring and doors (thanks to my cats who have scratched the hell out of my interior doors). Can't do that stuff until I'm able to take time off next year. My six months probation is up in January, and I've already been told to fill out the health insurance paperwork asap so it will go into effect in January (guess that means I get to stay, lol), so I'll be able to take a couple vacation days to have workers at my house.

I reconnected with some high school friends this week, which was very nice. Spent yesterday at an outdoor craft show (my feet are killing me! lol) and today will be spent watching football \o/

How are all of you?!

Ok, so far the new season of Dr. Who has been disappointing. Apparently, I'm missing the deep, dark meaning of these episodes :/ Capaldi is fine, but he mumbles his lines too much. Clara is suddenly super companion. And don't even get me started on the horrible, forced relationship with Danny, ugh (and I hated the guy who played Robin Hood).

The domestic/child abuse events in the NFL are sickening. I just have to keep thinking that there are hundreds of other NFL players who do not abuse their families, and actually do a lot of good things.

I stand by my prediction of a losing Steelers season.

Pitt is 3-0 though, so that's good :)

I was supposed to have plans today, but per usual, my family never followed through. I am really getting tired of that :/ So, I'll watch football and read today, I guess.

Work is fine. Still settling in, but so far so good.

Just found out that there are going to be several minor cast members (the boys) from A Christmas Story at the Steel City Con in December. This should be awesome, lol. I hope to get a group photo op, because that is my favorite Chrismas movie :D

And if you're still reading, is there anyone who needs SGA seasons 1-3 on DVD? I was given them by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] vecturist, but I got my series set back (long story) and would like to pass them along to someone who would appreciate them (for free!).

Looking forward to the new TV season, but I haven't seen any good new shows coming out. Anyone have a show they've heard good things about and can recommend (NO COMEDIES PLS)?

Steelers!

So, tonight the Steelers play San Francisco on MNF.

If the Steelers win out (v the Rams and the Browns the next 2 weeks) they are the number one seed in the AFC.

Huge thanks to San Diego for making that possible by kicking Baltimore's ass last night \o/





I predicted a while ago that the 2 losses to Baltimore this season would not matter in the long run. I hope I'm right :D

GO STEELERS!!!!!!!!!!!

Yoi!

Unbelievable game.

Didn't think they were going to pull that one out, lol.
ailurophile6: (coach tomlin)
The Steelers took down the Bungles, and the Ravens laid an egg in Seattle.

Which puts the Steelers at the top of the AFC pile again :D

\o/

I timed my LA trip perfectly. The Steelers and Pitt have byes this weekend! I'm hoping to catch the Pens game on Saturday on my I <3 Radio app.

I love this time of year!

I still don't understand how we got a safety from that, but who the fuck cares?!

THE STEELERS BEAT THE NE CHEATERS \O/

What a game :D

This is my favorite time of year :)

Football season is under way; hockey season starts this week (the Pens are undefeated in the preseason and look great!).

Today I'm going to consecutive hockey games for nephews E and S \o/ and nephew Z is home from college for the weekend! :)

So far, Supernatural has been excellent. Really enjoyed the first 2 episodes, although it makes me sad that Castiel is gone for now :(

Fringe continues to be excellent and creepy!

Watched the whole episode of Person of Interest this week. That's a pretty good show! I really like it.

I also enjoyed Terra Nova. I'll be watching that again.

I'm kind of disappointed with Unforgettable (standing around with your mouth hanging open is not a good look, Poppy) and Prime Suspect (please, please, please get rid of the stepkid storyline!!!).

Already stopped watching Secret Circle. May stop watching Ringer. Glee's second episode was not very good either :(

Most importantly, though. WTF HAVEN? That was the stupidest ending. No cop would be taken in by obviously planted evidence like that. Jeesh. But otherwise, an excellent episode. The show keeps getting better :)

And they're having a Christmas episode?! LOL Can't wait to see that, omg.

Best news of all: my younger sister is going to be transferred back to the local hospital LTSR unit and if she makes enough progress, she will be discharged back to supportive housing. She's been in treatment for months since her schizophrenia meds stopped working properly \o/

Hope you all have a good weekend!

It's going to be a long season.

I can't believe they actually pulled a win out of that disaster.

Whew!
