Hi, Charlie, call me Jack.

Enjoying my "evening" as I knit my purse, eat lukewarm clam chowder (I didn't heat it up hot enough but was too lazy to go finish the doo) and wheat thins, sip decaf tea, and watch my season two discs of SG1. It feels like every evening is just a grand waiting game for my bedtime of four o'clock pee em to occur (though I generally fall asleep hours later - reading and all), though today seems extra pleasant for some reason.

I got to feel like a ninny yesterday as I got my official first lesson in hand jack operation. I'm not talking the regular floor jack wheeled things, I'm talking hard core motorized fork lift doo-hickey. Manager Ted gave me instructions as I wheeled, bonked, squealed, and mechanically sashayed around receiving. It was terrifying and embarassing - I felt as if I were suddenly twelve years old again and my arms and legs had outgrown me. I ended up lifting and placing a bale of cardboard ontop of another without any casualties.

One of our giant, creepy lights went out - which causes receiving to smell like scorched rubber. We have no ladders taller than ten feet, so Ted put a pallet onto the tongs of the jack and had me lift him to the ceiling so that he could unplug the light. About five feet from the floor, Ted accidentally leaned back on the pallet, causing it to shimmy on the tongs and his arms to flap in the air in panic. "If that would have happened at the top, I would have crapped my pants," he said.

I also managed to get the entire first season of Buffy for ten bucks. Score. I've been reading oh so many of you making Buffy references on my friends list, so I have been craving me some.

I still haven't seen that musical episode, dagnabbit.

I keep wanting to watch StarGate (there are two of 'em, right? An older series and the newer one? Or am I on crack here?), but I'm afraid that if I add yet ANOTHER TV show to the list of TV shows I'm watching via NetFlix, I might go insane from the OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF TV SHOWS ON DVD THAT IS AVAILABLE OMG.

That and I'm not done with Star Trek, yet.

Oh, NetFlix, thank you for feeding my inner geek.

Yup, there's the old one, SG1, and the newer one, Atlantis. SG1 has ten seasons, though I stopped watching after season 8. (Atlantis starts during Season 8, I believe, like at the end of Season 7/beginning 8. I'm certain that someone on my friends list will correct me if I'm wrong.) If you ever DO watch SG1, be patient - the first season is ... well, it's super cheesy, almost a'la Hercules or Xena cheesy, but it gets way better. Season 4, I think, is my favorite.

I have a ton of Star Trek on my Netflix list, too, because I so plan on watching all of them one day! And 24. And Alias. And Lost. And and and... *head explodes*

I've heard that about the first season! So I shall remember that.

I'm doing Star Trek: TNG right now, but I wish I would have started with the original. Some day.

I'm doing one better and starting with Enterprise, since it supposedly came before the Kirk saga.

Speaking of Captain Kirk, I so hope my boss (Kirk) gets into checking into getting me more money soon, grar!

Well, Enterprise has a lot of ... stuff that pissed off the Star Trek community. They changed some stuff and therefore made "future" stories make little sense. I can't remember any at the top of my head, though.

I hope he does too! Call him Captain, maybe he'll like it.

I asked him if he hated that name, and he said that he's totally used to it now. People from corporate call and ask for Captain Kirk all the time.

I think I would rather deal with the after effects of a name like Kirk than, say... what Conan O'Brien dealt with after the release of Conan the Barbarian ;)

I like TNG, but Voyager is my favorite.
Jun. 18th, 2007 11:51 pm (UTC)
Is that the one Seven of Nine is on? That is, right?

If so. Yes. Favorite one. 'Cuz damn, woman is HOT.

She is, but not in the first season. I agree with you on the hotness factor though.
Jun. 18th, 2007 11:48 pm (UTC)
I stopped watching after Jack left.

Jun. 19th, 2007 01:27 am (UTC)
I have every single episode of buffy and it didn't cost me a cent. you should let me know. I can help you out

That's such an OSHA violation right there you know....

But at least he had a pallet to stand on, I just had to stand on the tines.

Jun. 19th, 2007 01:15 pm (UTC)
Man, I am the QUEEN of lukewarm soup. That's assuming I heat it up at all. I'm not the most patient person.
