New West Wing Walk & Talk

One more West Wing Walk & Talk .... oh how I still miss this program! This brings back sooooo many memories.

And the behind the scenes...

Hopefully I correctly embed the links... we'll see

John Spencer - you are missed

When you see this quote Leo McGgarry

LEO: "Cloak and dagger."

JORDAN: Look...

LEO: "Cloak and dagger."

JORDAN: It was one sentence in a two-page note.

LEO: And you sent me a note.

JORDAN: I was asked here on business which I usually conduct at my office.

LEO: I was going to come there but then I thought, between the lobby, the elevator, the reception area,
the paralegal's area, the associate's area and the coffee room of a Washington DC law firm, there
was an outside chance that somebody might recognize the White house Chief of Staff.

JORDAN: All I meant by cloak and dagger is that I'm not cut out for the security meetings and the secret
this and the back channel ambassadors. It's like your in the Mafia.

LEO: Well, it may be like I'm in the Mafia, but I'm not. I work for the good guys.

JORDAN: It was one sentence. The problem was, you were never at the other end of the phone.

LEO: That's an entirely different kettle of beans and we can have that discussion but history's shown
that if you just wait and tell it to a divorce lawyer, you can have half my stuff.

JORDAN: I don't want half your stuff.

LEO: You don't know-- some of it's good stuff.

I always loved how no matter the topic he was flirting with Jordan. Loved that John Spencer charm. I can't believe it's been 5 years.

Gov. Sarah Palin

While I don't agree with her on every issue, I have to say the more I see Sarah Palin the more I respect her, like her and am excited to vote for her in November. I always figured that the Republicans would be the first to actually elect a woman as VP or President.

Doesn't hurt that the more the left and the media go after her and her family the more I want to defend her.

I may actually volunteer for this election.
I'd like to beat the crap out of them! 

Seriously am I the only one sick to death of seing these mindless things cluttering up my flist? Why on earth would I or anyone else care what someone things are the perfect songs for insert-fandom-here ?  Does coming up with a list of songs written and recorded by other people really take any skill, talent or original thought? Why do people think they've done something special and feel compelled to share this list of what are most likely their own favorite songs with others?

Okay, rant done. I return you all to your regularly scheduled flists.

My God Aaron buy a new title already!?

Just checking the TiVo for upcoming "Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip" episodes in my continuing bizarre need to watch a show I don't like 
and saw that next week's episode is titled..... 
are you ready for this.....

What Kind of Day Has It Been?

What's the theory if it worked for "Sports Night" and it worked for "West Wing" it must be right for "Studio 60?" As if he hadn't copped enough from the other two shows already. 

Oh and BTW I have 3 on my TiVo that I haven't watched yet -- 
basically everything after Allison's appearance.

Greek Mytholog Mem

Copied from lifeasanamazon  and it seems mostly true except for the tact part. I'm sure my Flist will see that part right away. 

FF Insanity and Horse Racing

Went to night racing tonight at Hollywood Park for a friend's birthday and actually won about $50. 

I still have major cleaning and clearing up work to do around the house before my house guests arrive Thursday night and I have been procrastinating by writing another Gilmore Girls story featuring Richard & Emily. Climbing the Staris 

New FF

Okay, so I wrote a new story, though I know most all of my FList aren't Gilmore Girls fans. I'm still happy to be writing again. 

I have a few ideas for other stories in the West Wing, and Battlestar Galactica fandoms. I'm hoping this will help me jumpstart the writing muscles again. 

If you feel like checking out a Richard & Emily Gilmore story, it's called "Fingerprints & Mug Shots" and can be found here.

ETA: Not that my FList doesn''t know this already, but clearly I have lost my mind. I was talked into posting the story on FF.net. I think I'm going to be sick to my stomach. I've never posted anything there. I don't know why exactly I find it so daunting, but I do.
The FF.net link is Fingerprints and Mug Shots 

For the Love of Allison!

Really not much to say except still basking in the warm glow of Allison from last night's Studio 60. Anyone heard anything new about the sitcom? 

Because there were so many lovely Allison moments from last night, I just had to make some new userpics.


For those of you keeping score, sweetly_savage, this makes 61 of my 107 userpics.

I'm a pathetic Gilmore Fool

I just watched the last Gilmore Girls, which by the way until last week I didn't know was going to be the last Gilmore Girls and cried. Maybe it's my general mood of late, or my 2 hours of sleep in the past 24 hours, or maybe it's that I connected with that show a lot more than I ever thought I did. It wasn't until about 3 years ago that I even watched it, but thanks to the Family Channel I've seen every episode many times. While the show was supposed to be about Lorelai and her daughter Rory, Rory usually annoyed me and to me it became much more about Lorelai and her parents, the elder Gilmores Richard and Emily. Especially the volatile relationship between Emily and Lorelai, which reminded me quite a bit of my own relationship with my mother (though I often identified more with Emily). Lately I've been trying to emulate Lorelai's polite responses to her mother's criticisms, not that I've been succeeding. 

Anyway... it was a sad farewell for me tonight. There was a brief tender moment between Lorelai and Richard and also between Lorelai and Emily, but we didn't get the hug at least I've been longing to see between mother and daughter. Oh well, at least they finally got Luke and Lorelai together in the end and that's something.
