zombies, fire, actors  
I saw a zombie this morning. He had the vacant gaze of the damned, and was lurching, shambling, staggering, arms splayed, legs jerking. This wasn't the disordered movement of someone drunk or disabled, and I didn't fall for that. This is always how it starts. You see one zombie and dismiss it as something else, and then one day you walk into a semi-deserted supermarket and one of them shuffles up to you and eats your neck.

TIP: Watch out.

In other news, I was lighting matches last night for no reason, as one does, and dropped one on my bare thigh, and then gave a comical girly scream and brushed it off before I could set myself on fire. Because thighs are flammable.

TIP: Take care of your thighs, and only light things on fire that are meant to flame.

I hope I don't mess with anyone's head, but I have to share my actor confusion. For a long time I couldn't visualize Michael Shanks's face because I always overlaid it with Ben Browder's. I've gotten over that, I think. But now I have a problem where I often envision David Deluise (Samantha's "Pete") instead of David Hewlett. IT'S SO ANNOYING. DH has a much more distinctive face, more animated and expressive, and far, far more lovely. This problem interferes with the satisfactory progress of sex scenes.

TIP: Do not go now and find a photo of David Deluise. Why would you do that to yourself? It might be catching.

I'm sorry. No offense to David Deluise or anything, but seriously.

I KNOW! It's so utterly wrong and sad. An affliction.

Personally, with Stargate shooting in Vancouver, I'm waiting for the first reports of Ben Browder surfing at the Westport Jetty...

Julia, for his body it doesn not look at all like Michael Shanks...

this is a completely random response, because your match story made me laugh--have you seen Pretty In Pink? (ah, teen movies of the eighties! ah, John Hughes!) do you remember Annie Potts' confession that when Jon Cryer's character kissed her, her "thighs went up in FLAMES!" the memory of this as I was reading your story only made me laugh harder.

so, there. Evidence that thighs are indeed flammable.

Reading your journal is so much better than work.

It's Monday. Zombies happen. If you listened closely, you may have noticed that the typical "Braaaaaains!" was most likely a gutteral plea for "Coooooooffee!"
