OMG -- my profile is being taken over by ring-tailed lemurs! This thrills me; prosimians are an especial favorite of mine. Love, love, love lemurs. Y'all don't know it but the primatology side of biological anthropology is what sucked me into archaeology. It's especially appropriate to have lemurs cavorting on my profile. :)

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] colls, [livejournal.com profile] casett, and anonymous for the lemurs. A belated thank you to [livejournal.com profile] casett, [livejournal.com profile] hils, and anonymous for the glitterati sunglasses -- and to [livejournal.com profile] ohfreckle, [livejournal.com profile] jehnt, and [livejournal.com profile] casett for the milk & cookies. Sure would be nice to thank those generous anonymous-es by name. Just sayin'.

While I'm dealing with the "I'm running behind" issues, I still owe some comments on the Days 2 & 3 meme entries. I will try to get to it tomorrow but I'm up against a creativity block and need to spend some time working on entries for [livejournal.com profile] starwars_lims and tomorrow is the much anticipated world-premiere of Stonehenge Apcalypse. I suspect I'll be fangirling with [livejournal.com profile] hils and [livejournal.com profile] harper47 in eager anticipation while waiting for news to trickle out from the Supernatural convention happening in Barcelona.

I expect to be less than useless tomorrow.

1) Nine more days until Stonehenge Apocalypse!!! It stars Misha Collins, Torri Higginson, Hil Harper, Peter Wingfield, and Brent Stait. That's a lot of something for everyone. Sadly destined to be a horrible Syfy movie of the week crapfest but it's going to be awesome seeing favorite actors trying their best to convince me that Stonehenge is out to END THE WORLD.

*sigh* Once again the archaeologists are cast as the bad guys as they seem to kick off this version of the apocalypse.

2) O HAI Robert Wisdom! Supernatural's Uriel is now Burn Notice's Vaughn. Nice to see him again, this time in suits properly cut for him. He's looking good but I find it hard to trust him.

3) A Quick Guide to Understanding the Channel Mixer by [livejournal.com profile] nomadicwriter -- Handy tool, that channel mixer. Extra happy making is the Teal'c icon on the tutorial.

4) Spent today at the Houston Holocaust Museum. The architecture, more than reminiscent of a crematorium, was disturbing. That was the point of course, but the psychology of willingly walking into it was unsettling; just the first of many, many disquieting experiences. The audio tour was narrated by Mandy Patinkin and was one of the better ones I've ever heard. No point in lingering on the bad other than to say that it never fails to horrify and depress me. I'd heard about Denmark's remarkable actions before but now I know more. One of the few moral bright spots in a dozen years of depravity.
