Or I should rather say - cultural reference. Because I too often lack those, for obvious reasons =)

One of my prompts for [ profile] art_bingo is JACK FROST.

First thing that I though of, was the movie. But the guy there was simply a snowman, right? I thought it would be a litle too easy, so I read "jack frost" Wiki page and then googled it, for a good measure. And ended up knowing even less than at the beginning.

So, when you say "Jack Frost" - what you actually mean?

It's snowing! And it doesn't look like it's gonna stop anytime soon...

I have a sudden craving for a Spike icon.

Preferably a smoking Spike icon.

What the hell is happening with me??

I feel funny and not in a good way. I was alright in the morning, even went to the cemetery, to visit my grandparents (I do it quite often, it's close to where I live and I like going there).
After I got back, I started watching "The Fountain" (got bored pretty quickly, too). And then it kinda hit me - the dizziness, like I was on some drugs or drunk. Except I'm not.
I have no idea what brought this and what is wrong with me. I even ate proper breakfast, with tea (which is quite unusual for me).
I guess I'll try to take a nap and let's hope it'll pass come evening.

I'm unusually cheerful this morning. No idea why - it's Monday, after all, plus I've already found several mistakes  in March's  production usages. Mistakes worth about 50,000 USD... And yet - still cheerful.

It may have something to do with the whipped cream cake I'm currently eating. *g*

But I'm prepared for the other shoe to drop. Any minute now...

The snow is falling of and off all day (more on).  Few times  it was even something close to a blizzard! 
This is ridiculous.  Someone up there  apparently don't know that last week the spring begun...
I was lucky and sneaked to work and then back home in moments of relative calm. Thank God I work pretty close to home. People living on the other side of Warsaw (or outside) were hours late at work. I don't envy them the way back.
And it's a good thing I'm lazy and didn't pack my winter clothes yet...

I'm testing new face mask today.
In the description of use it says: Leave it on for about 10 minutes.
And: Does not require rinsing off.

Silly things like that always make me go "Huh? So what exactly am I supposed to do after those 10 minutes?".

What they did to poor Paul McGillion in latest "Sanctuary" episode??


I was so waiting to finally see him.

I'm disappointed.

Off to watch "Hotel Babylon" instead.

So, "Supernatural" finale... Phew.  Anticlimactic as it ever could be.  It actually felt like watching "Eureka" finale, only in slightly different  set. 
I expected  better, although after last three episodes  I'm not really surprised.

Edit: Apparently, I'm more  detached from reality than I thought, because - as  [personal profile] aizjanika kindly pointed  - this wasn't the finale. Now I'm wondering where I get the idea that this was supposed to be the end?...

A guy sitting across me in the bus, was reading a Harlequin.
Not your everyday view.
And I kept sneaking glances at him and wondering, whether his flush was purely natural, or an effect of what he was reading. *g*

Last Friday came information from HQ, that my company was sold.
We're (not so small) US corporation, with divisions all over the world.  But apparently,  our TPTB decided we have no chance to stand the competition. And sold everything to one of our biggest competitors.
There won't be any changes until the end of the year, but I'm scared already. Because even if - in Poland- this other company  is doing totally different stuff than us, there's pretty good chance  we'll get closed. 
I'm SO not good with changing jobs. I've tried this two years ago, worked in three different places within 14 months, and eventually came back here.
I don't even have any money to try my own business (I've lost it all  during this "experimental" faze, on a shop and a partner that stood me up).

This is exactly what I need now. More things to worry about.

from_the_corner: (I spy...)

I vaguely remember this fic, which ended with team going to some planet, when they met with folks who turned out to be pretty much advanced.
One of the last lines was something like this:

"Dude!" said Rodney. And hugged him..

Now, I pride myself having quite a vivid imagination, but I'm actually, absolutely unable to imagine Rodney saying "dude". Ever. Because that would be so hilariously wrong.

He never did it on show, did he? 'Cos if he did, someone please, point me to this ep, so I can have my crack up moment of the day.

It's pretty possible, that I just broke up with my... lover? (too big word). Kinda accidentally, but even if, probably for the better. This "relationship" is so not good for me.

And I can't wait to get home. 'Cos, you know - "Sunday"! Yay!

One word: the fog.
The type you see in those really bad horrors. I'm actually waiting when it starts to creep through the closed windows...
from_the_corner: (didn't see it coming)

I went to bed around 1:30 a.m., with my computer on, playing SG-1's "Flesh and blood". When I woke up, the monitor was turned off, and not because it was saving power, but because the button was pressed. The program I used to play the file was also turned off...
I was alone in my apartment and the cat is not allowed to the bedroom while I sleep (not to mention that it's virtually impossible that he actually did it).

Was I sleepwalking?

Any ideas?...

I'm in the mood for some Lorne slash so I' ve checked Wraithbait. Guess what - with one exception, all is there is either Lorne / Parrish (which was to be expected) or... Lorne / Kavanagh...

*is surprised*

For five years I was "happily" stuck in working for one company.
Then everything went to hell and now I'm facing third job in ten months. Funny - I'm not scared at all. Not like me at all. I only wish I knew if it's because I really changed or simply stopped caring.

Never run a restaurant before, buy why not? It's a nice place. Can be fun.

Just watched "Atlantis: Rising" and got a little confused.
First - Tollan-born, oh-so-in-love-with-Sam, supposedly-killed Narim appears to be Weir's boyfriend/husband.
Second - the whatsisname guy from "Revisions", who as far as I know was relocated courtesy of Jack & Co. - shows up on a planet in a galaxy far, far away.
It's weird, really.
I mean - did they thought we did not notice? Or was it a part of some "bigger plan" (yeah, suuure...). Lack of possible actors? Or what?
And does it gonna happen often?

Imagine me, in a bus or a train, sitting somewhere in the corner (where else?), big headphones covering my ears. Reading. So caught up in what I read that I do not pay any attention to "outside" world. I bite my fingers or chuckle or even laugh. Not very loud, but still. And muchh too often, if I catch a glimpse of a look from other peaople - it is dissaproving look.
Why? What is wrong with having fun while, otherwise quite boring, trip? As if I was offending them with my behaviour. Or as if they were jelaous.
