Subject:Is it 9 pm yet !?!?!?!?
Time:03:26 pm
I am probably one of the few people anywhere in the world right now that hasn't seen the second half of Season 3 of SGA.  It has been a long, long, long, long, long time since I've seen a new episode.  It's been almost as long since I've seen any episode of SGA, especially Season 3 since Sci Fi doesn't repeat them, and aside from the marathon they showed yesterday while I WAS AT WORK, if they do repeat it's from Season 1.  WHY?????  Why didn't they show it during prime time last night?????  Because I couldn't go without seeing Kaw for the second time in a week??????

I am beyond boggled by their scheduling department.  At least tonight I get to watch a new ep, even if I have to barricade myself in the bedroom to keep the kids out to do it.

On other fronts, progress is being made on the Cabin Fever fic.  I got distracted by the slash (it happens, what can I say?) and a challenge over at sga flashfic.  But I have been making progress although I've been a weeeeeee bit obsessive about some of the multimedia items that will be included which is slowing me down some.  But I'm plugging on.

I was also delayed by taxes.  Sigh.  I have **NEVER** filed so late in my life.  Stupid German inlaws with their stupid German mutual funds they gave us and then closed out this year and the stupid German bank's even stupider paperwork that tells me FUCKING nothing that I need to know.  I swear, as nice as it is to have a little extra cash, I would have been happier without the headache it has caused.

Okay, I'm going to go breathe now and wait until it's time for Stargate.

You are not alone! I have refused to download the second half of Season 3, and I've tried to remain as spoiler-free as possible. I am so very excited for tonight's episode. Right now SciFi has a "Mythology of SG-1" on. It's amusing.

Also, I highly recommend a TiVo. I have all the rerun eps from yesterday (while everyone was at work) saved so that I can savor them slowly over the weekend.

Let's hope tonight's episode is really good.

I actually have a DVR and once again Friday 13th struck and I bought the wrong disks to keep new recordings. Fortunately I still had room on a few of the ones from the first half of the season.

But the ep definitely made up for the pain in the ass day I had, that's for sure!

Well, it is Friday the 13th. At least you got the taxes done now, so you can thump your head against the wall in preparation of next year without worry. You're going to love the new episodes. And I hope they give you many, many new ideas for stories. Take care!

Oh, I really did enjoy the episode! It made all the crap from the day worth while. Can't wait for next week. From what I've heard it's a great John and Rodney ep.

MAY!!!!! Moan in sympathy for you. Well, it looks like you've got great things to look forward to if last night's ep is any indication.

Welcome Sister!

Ummmmm... Let me rephrase that:

I haven't seen the new ones either. Just got the 11s tonight, and will be not be seeing the 12s 'til Sci-Fi shows them next week. I've been avoiding spoilers like the plague but it's been hard and not entirely successful. It's nice to know some else is in the same boat.

I have to admit I've read a few spoilers... and I couldn't resist looking at some screencaps and skimming the transcript for Tao of Rodney... but honestly they just made me want it to be April that much sooner. But there is just something about that anticipation of is it 9 oclock yet???? It's kind of like a little bit of Christmas each Friday.

I hate that too. I got so used not to having SGA on that I completly forgot to watch it tonight.

Well, for your own sake, I hope you've downloaded them and this was just going to be a chance to rewatch for fun. I was worried to death that my family chaos was going to hit the week it premiered again. Fortunately, they moved it out a week and I dodged that bullet. Whew!

I'm going to download them later, since I already saw parts of SG-1's episode and have a general idea of what happens in Return Pt 2. I just don't have the time to wait 10 hours for it to download or the money to get it off itunes (which is the most reliable download).

Plus I'm a little peeved at the fact I can't get them to play on my DVD player.

I didn't manage to stay away from the spoilers (I'll admit I'm the type that will read the last chapter of a mystery first to find out who did it), but I managed to miss most of the episodes. It is kind of annoying that the SGA marathons are on during the day (I'm not counting the bait and switch when they said they'd do mini-marathons at night).

Just mailed my taxes (I think the post office hates this time more than the holidays). I have an international stock mutual fund, so I've gotten a small taste of the fun you had, along with the joys of converting a traditional IRA to a Roth. I'm tempted to write a ficlet for SGAHC in honor of April 17th.

Yesssssss. That is so annoying when they say they're going to show the mini-marathon and then decide to re-air some horrible sci-fi original movie. I think what annoys me most is that they *never* repeat SGA. If you miss it, forget it. I had one where I had other plans for Friday night, set the DVR, and the power went out and the clock reset. Fortunately we got home before the reshowing later at midnight, otherwise it would have been lost to me until the DVD set came out.

You should write the fic, relieve some tension or at least redirect it into a more creative outlet *G*.

Understand the wait completely, it's like being a kid again on christmas eve. Had to tape it myself but just finished watching it...going to be watching it again and again.
Looking forward to the cabin fever fic and intensely curious about the multimedia you're playing with. can't wait.

I have to admit, parts of this Cabin Fever fic make me think I might have bitten off more than I can chew. And it really is just my obsessiveness and inability to find an appropriate Cosmo quiz (let that pique your curiosity) *G*

Here in Australia, Season 3 hasn't even started yet. It's getting very annoying to not know what any of the fanfiction I'm reading is talking about... but at least I can count on yours always being good anyway! Keep up the great work please!

You have my deepest sympathies. I think I would have turned to downloading by now. So glad you can get something out of my fics even if you don't always know the eps that are referenced. *G*

I tried downloading, but with my computer, my pathetic internet provider, and really bad phone lines, a single episode can take me 30 hours of solid downloading, with no guarantee on quality. Though it was quite entertaining to watch 'Runner' (before the DVDs of season 2 were released) with all the sound about four seconds out of sync. Kind of ruins the fight scenes though.

Ouch! Although watching the ep with the dubbed kung fu movie effect could be fun, I suppose. LOL!
