Today’s Things Come In Threes.  
1. DUDES. ranua went to Planet Comicon and while she was waiting in line to meet Adam Baldwin, she snuck a photo of him and sent it to me. Like a real photo! Of Adam Baldwin! Who I basically have crushed on since like age 14 after just hearing his voice. And now I have a photo of him propped up on my bookcase! I would have slept with it on my pillow - (what? I don't care, I was very excited!) - but I was afraid Buddy would drool on it. I wish there was an audio recording of the noise I made when I opened the package, because it was kind of inhuman. She also sent me a Barbie zombie head, as one does, and I am going to hang it from my light cord in my bedroom. It's very cool! You can see the picture and some cosplay characters at her journal entry, here. I have the best friends, you guys!

2. I need to talk about last week’s Psych, because omg...

...Okay so, the week The Nephew was here, I dreamed three different times about Psych and every time, I woke up in a mild panic about what will happen when Juliet finds out Shawn is not a psychic. Like, what is he thinking?! How does he think this is going to go - a) he tells her that he is a big fat liar for the past like seven years or b) he what? Marries her and has kids with her and keeps lying? And then...it happened on the show! After all these years, she found out - (weirdly like the week after I dreamed about it). And omg, what is going to happen now?! I can’t even. But the best part? After Juliet walks away from him, the first thing Shawn does is turn to look for Gus. And then he looks right at Gus, and from all the way across the room, Gus sees his face and he just knows. He knows. With no words and from across the room, just from the look on Shawn’s face, Gus knows. This fucking show, man. Every now and then it kills me dead. I am a little surprised that it wasn’t the season finale. That moment seemed very finale-esque.

Also, Henry is so awesome and that talk he had with Shawn was just so.../sigh/ I want Henry to be my dad. Not when I was a kid or anything. Just...now. He can do that, right? I don’t even mean that in a perverted way at all. I just...want him to give me advice and bail me out of jams, okay?!

3) My brother came in today to do yard work and apparently The Nephew was throwing up last night (poor little guy) and so he stayed home today. But he was better this afternoon so he came to help his dad pick up sticks. I got out of the shower to an answering machine message saying, “Call me right back, real quick!” and then he was like, “I want to come in,” and I was all, “Come in where?” because I had just gotten out of the shower and didn’t realize they were in the backyard. So he came inside but we only got like 15 minutes before his dad was finished and they had to go. Still, it was a nice surprise - since they moved out of town, we rarely get the pop-in visits anymore. Unfortunately, I forgot that one of The Nephew’s birthday presents was sitting on my dresser and he went in my room and saw it, so now he knows he is getting a Hobbit poster for his birthday. Damn.

It was a therapy day today, so I'll probably turn in early. Hope your days were all lovely!

LOL, zombie Babrbie head, I love how that doesn't surprise me one bit :-D

Poor Nephew :-( Hopefully he will get well soon, tell him I send him warm hugs (with gummy bears, there always have to be gummy bears) :-)

LOL It didn't surprise me that much either, that someone made them or that someone saw them and thought, "Dodger needs one!" Apparently the vendor had done zombie Barbie arms and legs turned into earrings as well, but I don't have pierced ears, so she sent me a head to hang in my room. When I get the hookup for my phone-to-computer I'll take a picture!

Hmmm, gummi bears as a cure for throwing up. Man, if that worked, it would be awesome 'medicine'. I talked to the little man today and he sounded all better.

It's so weird to me that you don't have pierced ears, here we get ears of girls pierced while they are babies (which I personally am happy about TBH), parents can decide about it in the hospital and the docs will do it.

Well, there are lots of pierced ears here, and some babies have them as well (though they don't offer that service in the hospital!) but it seems to be a general thing that girls get their ears pierced between like 11 and 16 over here. If you're under 18, you must have a parent with you - which was funny when I took my little brother to get his done and I flashed my ID and told them I was his legal guardian, which I was not, and they did it. But I think most adult woman probably have their ears pierced these days - it used to be a big deal, but now even having your belly button pierced isn't a big deal anymore. I got my ears pierced when I was, uh, 10 maybe 11 and I had them for two or three years but they kept getting infected for some reason, so I just gave it up. But then I was like 13 and punk rock and not in the least bit a girly girl, so it didn't bother me at all not to have pierced ears. I'd like them now but it's just not worth the hassle.

It's actually kind of cool that they offer that service to newborn in the hospital over there - I imagine that if ear piercings are that common in small kids, that rebellious teenagers have to find other things to pierce?

Huh, we learn new things every day :-D

LOL, nose, mouth, eyebrows...Both my sisters for example have additional holes in their ears as a sign of rebellion, one of them has a tattoo on her back (it's in chinese and I keep on joking that it says "chicken noodles" :-D)

ahahahaha That's hysterical! I bet that joke drives her nuts too.

It's not uncommon for men to have pierced ears here, though it's more of a high school/college thing, or for women to have two holes in their ears. And belly piercings (especially in teens/college kids) is no big deal anymore. Nose piercings are still a big thing though, that's how kids rebel (nose and tongue piercings are rebellious). I just remember one of K's kids wanting to get a belly piercing in high school and he asked me what I thought and I was like, "Dude, it's common place these days. If you let them have pierced ears, belly piercings aren't any different anymore." I mean, it's not a tattoo, it's not permanent.

Yay picture and visit! I tried Psych a couple of times, though, and never did get into it. I mean, I liked it, but I didn't seek it out. Still, that's a neat moment.

I am very excited about my ridiculous Adam Baldwin picture. Clearly, if I get that jazzed over a sneaky candid (or maybe, that someone thought of me in the middle of getting to meet Adam Baldwin) I can only imagine what would happen if I ever met him myself.

It was so long ago that I can't even remember what made us start watching Psych, but I've been in it from the beginning. That said, it really is one of those shows that you don't have to know that much about and you can just watch it when you catch it and have literally no trouble following what is going on. I watch it in reruns all the time and the only way I can even guess what season (because every episode is so very similar) is by Juliet's hair.

We just watched this week's episode and Juliet asked Shawn to move out! My heart is on overload from that. /clutches Shawn to my bosom, my little woobie/

I think it's hilarious that hairstyle can pinpoint a season that exactly!

LOL Well, there are a couple seasons where her hair is the same but then you just look at how much salt'n'pepper Lassie has going on and you can tell which season you're in that way. (or, you can look at the kid actors in the flashbacks because the little boys kept getting growth spurts and had to be recast).

Also, Friends, that was a show that you could tell by the girls hairstyles. If not Rachel's, then Monica's. Yep.

Good point.

I'm so glad you liked your con gifts :D I just couldn't resist. (also, I fixed the link to my twitter, I always forget to add the 02 after my name)

I tried watching Psych, but it just didn't hold my attention very well. I adore the premise and the characters, especially Shawn and Lassiter, but for whatever reason it didn't click for me and that bums me out.

Boo for The Nephew being sick. (tho I'm sure he's fine now since it's taking me forever with my flist currently :p) I'm finally over a bout of the crud myself. Yay you got to see him at least for a little bit tho.

I totally did, babe! The zombie head is hanging from my overhead fan cord in my room and Adam Baldwin is propped up on my bookcase. If I can ever bear to take him down, he'll end up with my personal conventions photos! YOU ARE THE BEST!!!

also, I fixed the link to my twitter,

I saw the girl!Cas. It was a pretty good outfit.

I love all the characters so much, but the thing about Psych is that it is really over-the-top and ridiculous, and if that isn't your sense of humor, it's not going to click. But it's too bad you couldn't stick with it cuz I could totally see you becoming as Lassiter-fangirl all the way. ;)

Boo for The Nephew being sick. (tho I'm sure he's fine now

He got better, yes, and I haven't heard about him being sick again. I hope it was just a one day thing because my brother reminded me of how very similar it was to something that he had wrong himself as a kid that ended him in the hospital, that I was very cautiously waiting to see if the throwing up happened to The Nephew again. Anyways, he seems to be doing well now and he'll be turning 7 on the 13th - SEVEN! What even is happening, how can he be seven?
