For anybody who ever imagined Paul Bettany as Aziraphale in "Good Omens"...
... apparently Paul Bettany is currently filming a movie called "Legion", playing a character called Michael, and this is the movie synopsis:

"When God loses faith in humanity and sends his legion of angels to take care of business on Earth, humankind's hope lies in a group of misfits holed up in a desert diner -- where the archangel Michael happens to be as well."

Whoooooooot!!!!! Paul as an angel - it had to be! *G*

p.s. Been absent for a while again; started when I went to Sanibel, FL the middle of last month to rekindle that little flame of hope that there really was life out there, that spring would come, and all was not snow-covered and bleak (i.e., not everything looked like Chicago in winter). Whew, it has been a long, tough winter. But the snow is almost all melted, and I may even be able to clean up the yard this weekend, and put some stuff on the lawn. Yay!

When is the next new "LOST" going to be on?

For ELIJAH WOOD FANS IN BRITAIN: TORN says they're looking for EW fans for a TV show audience for a taping on April 10. Details here: http://www.theonering.net/torwp/2008/04/03/28599-uk-fans-needed-for-the-audience-for-elijah-wood-interview/

Oh, tootsiemuppet! I have a theory about midshipman Ellis! See, I recently re-read "The Colour of Magic", and it said that when people move between alternate universes, the receiving universe changes to fit them in, giving them identities, past histories, etc. and making the people around them think they've always been there. Then, an episode of "Futurama" stated that, whenever you time travel and accidentally create an additional "you" (by going into the past and meeting up with yourself in the present), the additional "you" is doomed to die.

So here's my theory: Ellis discovered a rift in time and space that allowed him to go back into time, via an alternate universe. He meets up with himself when it gets to the present, and he and his extra self trade off watches, so they can get sleep. But the new Ellis is doomed, and falls overboard, drowning. The old Ellis is afraid to come out of hiding, because he doesn't know how the crew will react. After a day or so, though, he comes out, and... the crew automatically adjusts their memories, such that they forget that "he" died!!!

There... now wasn't that simple? *ggl*

The brilliant part of all of this is that they do mention Jack having to have dinner with his parents, but it doesn't explicitly say that it's because their boy died... so it still works!

*is a mad genius and proud of it*

p.p.s. Did anybody in your reading club come up with clever explanations for Midshipman "Lazarus" Ellis? And how many noticed it?

Wasn't Sanibel pretty? I went there last Summer (even though I already live in Florida, lol).

Lost comes back April 24th at 10 PM EST.

Ah, but Sanibel is what everybody thinks Florida looks like... but, sadly, not all of it does look that way! *S* I wasn't a fan of Florida until I went there. Beautiful beaches, gorgeous wildlife, and lots of pretty shells!

April 24? Thanks! BTW, I'm reading comments backwards and somebody else said it's the same week, but on April 23, and at an hour later than usual. So make sure you check beforehand to see if they're right, or you might miss it.

*L*! Waaaay wrong...

What about a younger Alan Rickman? After all, he's played an angel before. *G*

No new 'Lost' until April 23rd - not only is it moving back to Wednesdays, but also to 10pm! Not happy about that.

I could absolutely see Paul Bettany as Michael, and as Aziraphale - LOVE that book!

And i'm still trying to find someone to sponser me so I can fly out to the UK for that interview with Elijah. :D

Back to Wednesdays??? Thanks for the headsup on the date and the changes; I hadn't seen any of that.

*L*! Good luck! *G*

OOooo, Sanibel! LOoooves Sanibel Island. (-: Was last there 2 years ago mid-March. Where did you stay? We stayed out toward the north end at some cottages way out by the State park--it was lovely.

Mid-March! Exact same time that I went. I usually stay at the south end, away from the people, at Blind Pass (the bridge between Sanibel and Captiva). This time I was a little more in the middle of the island. I try to stay away from the top of the island because of the traffic coming off the causeway, and because I spend a lot of time at Ding Darling, the nature preserve. Did you get some great shells? What place did you stay at? My places have been:

-at Blind Pass: Castaways (cheap and small and good location, but not great rooms, window A/C)
-on Captiva: Tween Waters (expensive and hotel-style and good location, nice rooms with central A/C)
-middle of Sanibel: West End Paradise (cheap and small and moderate location, cute but small rooms with window A/C, nice owners)

Ahaha that is brilliant! XD XD That explanation is now canon in my mind!

And the news about Paulie B made me so happy you have no idea. :D

Somebody misses me! Somebody misses me! Whooooo hoooooo!!!!!

I swear, every other day I think of getting back on LJ... and then find I have something else to do. Between gardening and working on the photos from my niece's graduation and enjoying nature in spring, I just haven't. I really hope to find a way to get back on again - I miss you all!

Oooh, Bettany as an angel, that's perfect!

Hi! *hug*

Well, needless to say, I think I can relate on being gone from LJ for a while. ;) Thank goodness for the Friends List Filter, so I can first catch up with folks like you who have been there from the beginning. :) (and not get overwhelmed by the many posts in communities I've recently joined...)

Glad you got a chance to visit warmer climes! I think I permanently turned into a polar bear this winter. And just a couple nights ago, right after I'd bought my petunia and geranium, I had to put them in the garage because we had a frost forecast (heehee, & the "f" key on my computer has started popping off again... any suggestions for fixing it?)

OK, long rambling comment. I'm just so glad to "see" you. If we go to Chicago this summer, can we look you up?

Well, that was April 3, and I don't think I've posted since then (sadly). I really miss you guys, wonder what you're up to, and think of thing I want to post on LJ all the time.

I know - the late cold around here can really drive you crazy if you garden. Luckily I was farther south, so I didn't have any damage.

Sure - just call me or send me an email first. If you have my number on your phone, it's probably still my current one. I haven't changed it for years.
