  • Mood:

meloni madness

So we scrubbed and brushed and broomed all night and all morning. It was like boot camp. I just love that new orange cleaner though. Did the whole kitchen in a quarter of the time without scrubbing my fingers down to the bone, my elbows into carpel tunel sydrome and without fainting and clocking myself on the the stove on the way down from the fumes. Yippee. I'm in heaven. It even got that yellow stain off the side of the fridge - the folks at home never wipe up their spills, all the better to stain the cupboards.

So the vistors arrived. They weren't exactly awful (rascist comments notwithstanding), but I had to much of a headache to really deal so I took kitchen duty. I needn't have fretted over the house passing muster though because as they were leaving they asked if the plaque on the lumpy stone in the garden was where my dog was buried. No, Dad. Heh, there's no come back from a faux paus like that. Advantage, me. Dear old Dad, still having the last, wicked laugh on mother's hideous relatives. I love it.

After that I sank down into bed for my weekend headache and my monthly ordeal. So, onto the telly watching:

Stargate: Absolute Power. First we start off with the kid who makes even less sense than Master Po. "First you must take the pebble from my hand..." It doesn't take long for me to slither from the Kung Fu place down to Shit Scared to the whole Budgie Bottom skit. Much tittering. (Sorry, you need to be familiar with Oz comedy from the early 90s).

Then Daniel goes all super villain, complete with super villain lair and super villain chair. Oops, too late, we've hit the Dr Evil place.

Daniel, lookly suitably manical in his Big Chair: "I'm going to hold the world to ransom with my super spacey satellites. I demand ...one million dollars!"
Much tittering on screen from the suits and uniforms.
Cranky Daniel: "Hey, I've been on an alien desert planet for four years, throw me a frikkin' bone here."

Chortle. Guffaw. And Why did Jack look so reticent as Daniel urged him to step closer, and closer? What was he expecting from Daniel? One down the throat for old times sake?

Raffles: The Silver Chest. Poor Bunny, playing the bunny again as Raffles ties the poor lad up in knots with his tricks and lies. This leads to poor Bunny sobbing drunkenly on his bed and Raffles trying to comfort him. Raffles promises he'll never lie to Bunny again, then the very next morning sets poor Bunny up so that Bunny, in such a state, begs Raffles to lie to him from now on. Poor, needy Bunny. Wicked, amoral, sociopathic Raffles.

Stargate: Chimera. Frell, another Deluise. They're like plagues, hire one, get the rest of the family free. It was like that on 21 Jump Street, Seaquest and now Stargate. Only NYPD Blue escaped unscathed, I think. Sammy has aparently given up the Jack for a Deluise. Yay! I'm pretty sure she decided on this course of action when Jack announced he was off to the MacGyver Jungles to rescue Daniel. The sour, shrewish look Sam gave him, as if to say so that's the way it's gonna be, huh? Next we see Sam rubbing it in Jack's face by humming in the lift. The minx. Notice how Non-makingcoweyesatJack!Sam is back to her old cheeky self. Meanwhile Daniel is making time with Mrs Toby Stephens again, having night time visitations. Sleepy Daniel is cute Daniel. Jack meanwhile offends Teal'c by refusing his selection of doughnuts. I'm sure refusing the offerings of a First Prime is not good etiquette and liable to the loss of a body part somewhere down the line. I'm just sayin'.

Wild Wild West. Saturday's episode featured lil miss minxy librarian herself, Yvonne Craig as a not very good assassin. Sunday's featured naughty men in silver suits.

Woke up on Sunday to discover Kung Fu: The Legend Continues on Fox Campy, sorry, Fox Classics - and that's stretching the definition of 'classic' to near breaking point, methinks. I mean, this show is so bad it's hilarious, and there's a young Chris Potter, pre QAF with all his clothes on. Yikes. It's so, so very bad, yet we watch and laugh like hyenas. I was really in the mood for Kung Fu, too. The only thing that would make my day complete would be...

Big Trouble in Little China. This is a deeply, deeply silly film, yet I deeply, deeply adore it. I certainly wouldn't recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it, as the oh so 80s production values will no doubt offend, but I just love it to bits. And is it just me or does Jack get into a really embaressing position when he skewers that guy?

It's a great shame that Angel never did a Big Trouble in Little China episode, because they seem just made for each other. Pity. I shall have to write it myself.

SVU: Twho hours of Munch and Meloni. Excellent.

Parkinson: Everything seems to be last Sunday's program on Foxtel. At first I think I'm looking at the wrong page, but surely a timeloop is the more sensible answer. No matter, cause I get to tape a very young and cheeky Ewan on Parky. This is before the Star Wars films made him all bitter and twisted. Sigh.

Henry VII: Sean! Sex on a stick Sean! Woof! Woof! Man of conscience and man of action Sean, and no puffy pants for our hard man of the north. Poor Sean gets offed too soon, weep, and bad Sean, for he falls heavily onto his wounded arm. We dispute whether anyone would really do this except to look overly dramatic. Tsk. You'd think Sean'd know how to die shot full of arrows on screen by now.

Oz: At bloody last. I'm not sure if this is the first episode and it just jumps in with characters referring to events I've never seen, or whether Fox8 just picked up where Optus left off (ack) or just threw on any old episode (also ack). I'd check on a net guide but alas the ol ISP is as slow as a very slow thing but it was very 'previously on episodes you've never seen'. So I'll assume it was either a conceit of the series of the incompetence of Fox8 - both likely scenarios.

Anyways, did it live up to the hype? Yes, it did. It was actually much better than I'd been led to believe. Those overly squeamish reviewers obviously never lived through my first year of kindergarten (three fractured skulls and rape by a fanta bottle), so I was like, whatever, re the violence. I was actually moved and gripped by the characters and the dark humour. I was really, really into it (and playing spot the Law & Order guy, not just Chris) and the end credits popped up too fast.

I watched the 5am Monday repeat, because I was all crampy and oogy, and agan I was gripped. I think I have a new show. well, new for me, 'kay?

Cue six hours of violent throwing up and agony cramps, then finally a drugged out haze and Quincy, SVU (more Meloni!) and Relic Hunter. More cramps and Angel and Buffy and Doctor Who (Paul Darrow got zapped in the last episode) and then I just went to sleep for weird zombie nightmares. Gotta love them mersyndols.

I am so my worst enemy. Obviously I was demonstrably too sick to go into work on Monday, but Head Office had called, demanding I present myself to Head Office for Urgent Ministerial work. Only I wasn't there to take the call, was I? I am sooo very in their black books. I am sooo getting binned come June. It's not fair. I worked through pneumonia. I worked through Dengue fever. I hobbled to work on crutches. I decided to take one day off, and it's The Day they decide they need me. ack. I am sooo screwed. I knew I should have dragged myself to work, regardless. And don't you go saying 'but you were sick'. You know by now these are not reasonable people. Damn damn damn. I shall be pounding my head on my desk betwixt drinking cups of this gawdawful cinamon tea I have to drink to stop me bleeding into the carpet. Such is my life.

And finally, speaking of old Oz skit shows, etc, can people just not write slash that involves David Wenham or Eric Bana? Please? Cause all I can ever see is Spit and Poider when I try and read 'em, and that's just not good. It's not fair, none of you dang Yankees have the Wenham or Bana baggage I've got to carry around. Cause you know while I'm watching Troy, all I'll be able to see is Bana as Ray Martin. Too sad and creepy for words. Mutter, grumble, gripe. Oh, mein gott, now I'm seeing Spit and Poider slash. Mullets ahoy. Aiyeee, my eyes, my eyes....I hate youse guys. 8p
