Last night I watched a very boring episode of Stargate.
I really didn't want to continue watching, nothing was happening, it didn't even have any of SG-1 in. The episode was Disclosure and it was clearly season 6's version of Politics. Just a bunch of people sitting around in a room talking and loads of flashback scenes. If I want to watch clips of other eps I can just put them in the DVD player and I can choose which clips to watch that way. I ended up wandering out of the room during the episode, something I never normally do and I was sitting singing "boring, b b b boring" to the Star Wars music for a large portion of the episode. It wasn't just boring either, it was also irritating because of the accents of the people, I mean there was a guy who was meant to be French, I don't know what he was, but he wasn't French and the English ambassador's accent was really annoying too. All in all I think that was quite possibly the worst ever episode of Stargate. Yes, worse than Politics and worse than Emancipation. Oddly as Helen was pointing out, the only SG-1 actor that was in the episode apart from in flashback, was Michael Shanks as the voice of Thor, that's interesting, the one actor that's not in this series is the only one in the episode. Weird. Why must they make these episodes, surely there's other ways of making money without having a whole episode of flashbacks and ambassadors sitting around talking, I mean SG-1 sitting around talking would have been more interesting, were they saving on salaries? Were all the actors off on holiday? Did they accidentally film one to few episodes and have to make one up? I don't know, I don't know why I'm using my blog to whinge either, I should really do this at my Stargate site, I haven't updated that in a couple of months, silly me.
Anyway, I think I'll go now, I still feel kind of ill, I keep just wanting to stay in bed and I don't really have any energy to do stuff, I couldn't even be bothered to come online the last couple of days, weird. Oh, on Tuesday I took three of my ECDL
modules, so I've passed four now, they were very easy, I did the basic concepts of Information Technology, managing files and Word, I'd already done the internet one. I thought the basic concepts one would be harder, 'cos I had to learn stuff like the data protection act, but it wasn't on the test, it was just stuff like what's the difference between ROM and RAM, what is applications software, what's an operating system, what health and safety issues should you think about etc. I probably waffled too much, but I passed easily. It's kind of frustrating, because I end up feeling guilty 'cos everyone else is struggling, but it's hard to hide the fact that I'm doing the 40 minute tests in 5 or 10 minutes when other people are doing them in the same room. I shouldn't have to feel guilty though, I mean it makes sense that I can do them, I use the computer all the time, it'd be ludicrous if I failed, there's stuff that doesn't involve computers that other people can do that I'd be lost at.
I've got a kid's club on this Sunday. I run them once a month at my church, we have music, games, lots of mess and noise, puppet shows etc. I'm having a slight worry because the guy that was going to lead worship phoned me last night to say he's strained his voice and can't sing, I'm hoping Andy can do it, but he might have to lead worship in the main church service which is on at the same time, and he's ill, so if he's not well by Sunday he won't be able to anyway. Oh well, if it comes to it I'll just have to sing and they'll have to put up with me being out of tune, I've done it before and they don't seem to notice that much, it's just that I do. Oh well, I jump around so much that my singing probably can't be heard anyway. It probably just becomes out of breath noises.
