"The world turned upside down..."
How bizarre! I'm watching "The Daily Show", which, [is responding] to a speech from the Senate in which a Senator was making an analogy between The White House and those against the Iran War, and Romulans and Klingons. Yes, this is true. And now Jon Stewart is talking on the phone to Nimoy and Takei to ask them their opinions of the analogy. *G* Such lovely men. Nimoy starts out acting resentful of being asked a Star Trek question... and then pretends to start spouting all sorts of trivia about an episode (like a true nerd), telling the entire story of an episode... while Takei calls up and complains about that fact that Jon obviously thinks Nimoy's voice is more distinctive than Takei's, and how could he think that? *ggl* It was great.

What else...? Everybody knows that "The Dark Tower" is coming out as a graphic comic, with the first volume coming out Feb. 7 - and it will give the genesis of The Gunslinger? (Strangely enough, I haven't read that particular book, but know the character from an AU MonaBoyd story which combined "The Stand" with that character, with The Gunslinger played by Billy... *G*)

And, if you live in the Chicago area and are a fan of Chris Thile (mandolinist/singer of Nickel Creek) or Edgar Meier (bassist), they're doing a show this Saturday, general admission, at Dominican University. Tix still available at www.dom.edu. (DOM! *G*)

And I feel so sorry for Evangeline Lilly, what with her rented house burning down just before Christmas, but I haven't heard anything since about it. I hope it wasn't too terrible losing whatever she lost there. Just reminded of it by an article about how she didn't stick around to answer questions after a press conference up in Canada this last weekend - but perhaps she was rushing to get to LA for the Golden Globes?

Just the usual potpourri, folks!

Oh - cat update: my brother's family say they're okay with taking the new cat back, and I think I will give him back. He's really wonderful, but my guys would be much happier without him (and back to their quiet life), and he needs an active playmate. Apparently the approx. year-old cat back at my brother's house has been rather down and missing his playmate, which is what I suspected would happen. Ah, well - I tried! Now I know that, whenever the first of my elderly cats passes away, the remaining one would be happier on its own. My boy cat is happy as long as he has me (to himself), and my girl cat is happy if she is warm, well-fed, and on a comfy cushion.

*G* I knew I'd hear from you.

Whose in that cool icon (Not all who wander...)? It's not Viggo, is it? Oh - is it Chris?

Yeah, that's the boy's album cover for The Deciever, my favorite.

I love him.

Is is just him or his band as well? I wish I was in Chicago.

Just him and Edgar Meier. Might want to check the net to see what he's up to. This is at Dominican University (an odd place to have it), so it might be some special one-off.

Oh man, I'm sorry I missed that Daily Show. Love Jon Stewart. Also...

*whispers from behind hand* Looks like The Flying Scotsman may be released(again) on April 20. Just so you can plan ahead, you know. ;)

Well, someone on the IMDB board said they heard perhaps May, after Cannes. But we'll just have to wait and see. :)

*whimpers*

Although... perhaps that means it's good enough to go to Cannes? We can always hope!

{Smile} I'm glad the little tyke will have a playmate again. It does sound like this arrangement will be happier and more comfortable for at least four kitties. {BIG SMILE, REALLY BIG GRIN, HUMONGOUS GRIN}

Cats are just damn finicky about their friends. I have three who have been around each other for over 6 years and two of them STILL don't like each other. And yeah, from everything I've seen and read, old cats do NOT appreciate a new playmate. Ever.

(re-reading that post and - whoa... apparently I can't write! *L*!)

I know... it's sad! Because, at the same time, a cat alone gets rather bored. Silly things!

p.s. The station I listen to down here, WXRT, plays a lot of The Cure - I think of you every time they do. *G*

Awwww, cool! I wish I had a station anywhere near me that plays the Cure. *sigh*
