Another Diwali! Mum's cooking, and I've decided to try my hand at Badam Burfi this year. Tried Pera and Gulab Jaamun last year with the sister, came out edible, just a smidge off than what it should look like, but tasted the same... [-.-]

So as long as the burfi tastes, like it should I'd say it would be a success.


In LJ news, gonna be finally getting around to updating icons, and other graphics soon.

Just got done watching it and all I got to say is WTF?!!!

As much as I love watching JB, as Captain Jack, and Eve Myles, as Gwen, and the whole rest of the old cast, I think this is where I jump the 'Torchwood' train, as it seems to have gone off the rails.

My biggest question at the end of all this is:
left with questions... :-SCollapse )

ANNOYED!!!

Technically my area, was designated Tropical Storm Warning. Which ended up being rain, at different intervals and strength, as each band of the Hurricane passed, and high winds. We were quite a bit away from the coast and the eye of the Hurricane.

Now to my annoyance. Lost electricity on Saturday 11:10pm. Then the winds picked up. By Sunday morning 9:00am. Everything was once again calm. Soothing breezes, nothing serious. Still no electricity.

Went out, no BGE (Electrical Company), trucks out anywhere. No trees down in my neighborhood, or for a few miles around. Still by evening NO ELECTRICITY!

Didn't start getting annoyed, until Monday when was updated by BGE that we would get power back ON or BEFORE FRIDAY 11:30pm (w/ Blackouts into Saturday)... WTF?!!!

During the Blizzard, we got power back in just over 24 hours. A Tropical Storm, which they were oh so ready for, is going to take 6 DAYS for them to get us power back. And my annoyance went up.

Trying to hold it together for 2 more days, been getting alot of sleep though. By this weekend I'm going to have some serious internet time, catching up on fanfic reading, and tv shows.

Off to find some happy thoughts... [-.-]

What a week! First a M5.8 Quake, now a Category 1 (as it's classified right now) Hurricane.

I would take a Hurricane over a Quake any day, but really didn't want one of each in the SAME week.

Prepared as I can be for it. Hoping not to lose power, as I will surely go mental, since my ipod won't last but a few hours, and I'm the kind of person who's attached to my laptop like velcro.

So hoping for the best all around. [-.-]

We're basically got the Tropical Storm Warning!

As usual, everyone goes crazy when they tell you to prepare. Went to the grocery with my friend last night after our usual dinner, and the water shelves were BARE!

Didn't brave the groceries today, as my mum is awesome and always prepared. So only had to hit the bulk store and get extra water.

Been raining for the last 6 hours, winds aren't too bad, in the teens. But surely will be getting stronger as Irene gets closer.

So, off to have dinner, then wait it out. Planning to get 'chocolate wasted'... as my friend decided we'd be, since we bought 5 bags of chocolate as hurricane rations. [>.<]

Crazy freaked out! Really don't care to feel another quake (EVER!) or even aftershocks. Felt it at around 1:50pm-ish... First quake I can clearly remember feeling, in all my years. Never felt one this strong.

Apparently most of the East Coast as far as Toronto (North) and Georgia (South) felt it??? Epicenter was Mineral, Virginia.

Got to say took the news near 10-15mins to actually come on and say it was an Earthquake. Facebook friends were quicker.

So, kind of unsure of how I feel about this episode.

It's kind of frustrating with a storyline stretched out over 10 episodes. Couldn't they have an alien of the week episode, with the 'miracle day' effect going on through out the season?

CoE worked better I think because it was shown on consecutive days, even though I didn't like the actual end.

So on to what I thought of Episode 3:

Lengthy, Spoilery, Rambling, Review for...Dead of Night...Collapse )

Definitely better than episode 1, mainly because they're moving along with the story at a better pace. There were parts, that were boring, annoying, and seems to be a waste, though I'm sure it's important to the rest of the story. There were also some bits that I found funny..

So yeah!

Right off I should say, I wasn't really looking forward to the actual series, just to seeing Jack, Gwen, Rhys, and Andy, again.

The whole premise of 'death of death' and all the CIA government shenanigans, kind of put me off as it seemed just too much like political drama, or CoE and not alien involved, that I loved about S1/2 of 'Torchwood'.

But I'd decided to watch it anyway.

So was not really impressed, kind of expected more from the reviews, and all the talk. Though I will be watching the next episode.

Bold words, I amended after watching 'TW' a second time.

My thoughts...SPOILERS!!!...Collapse )

So back online. Back to doing icons soon, but did whip up a new banner. Real life is still crazy busy and confusing, but pushing on.

Anyway, enough of the serious biz. Saw the character introductions (vids) for the NEW Torchwood.

First off I'm already indecisive about this supposed season. I'm not "can't wait, gonna be sitting in front the telly" excited to see it. So everything I see about it I'm very critical of. Really my main reason for watching it would in the end be because of the old cast (Jack/Gwen/Rhys/Andy)

So, rundown of the introductions:

REX: Would possible make me want to watch it. But still on the edge. It didn't pull me in to the premise of the miracle and his character.

JACK: Another one of the vids that would tempt to watch, but still haven't done that. It's like I'd expect to be amazed by his actions and then be dissapointed.

GWEN: Disappointed in it. It wasn't interesting in the least. There's so much more better stuff in her background that could have been used (maybe?). Kind of makes me wonder what 'OMG' moment she's going to have.

OSWALD: Oh creepy much?! Could possible tempt me if I didn't know his character, and how urgh! he really is.

JILLY: Too happy/preppy for me. Will surely drive me crazy. Nothing in the little clip, even makes me want to know anything about her.

ESTHER: From the little clip nothing stands out.

Kind of wished RHYS had an introduction vid. But guess he won't be in much of the series then? or may just be killed off, cause Gwen's intro did say she HAD a husband and daughter... or maybe she means she had to leave them behind or the gov't has them?...who knows.

Hello LJ!!!...*huggles*...missed it.

OMG!...Finally got a laptop again. My Tosh has well and truly had it. I now have a Dell. Don't know what I'll call it yet, we're just getting to know each other...hee!

It feels so good to finally have one instead of trying to read everything from my ipod touch.

Now to once again locate the pics, textures, brushes, and files, I use to have. And reply to comments. That will surely take up quite a bit of my Thanksgiving Wkend.
