Re: Un**ding

Did you blitz the show? I did in 5 wips. But I actually saw a bit of season 10 including that episode before blitzing the rest, when season 10 was new to dvd. Sort of. One of the TV channels here has been steadily playing through them at one episode a day, 5 days a week, for most of the past year, ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I recently watched the last episode of Stargate: SG1 (excluding films) for the first time. That involved lots of time dilation: Our resident OTTer DrSamCarter puts their ship in a time dilation field to stop it getting blown up by a giant Ori plasma cannon. They are then stuck inside it for the next...

*phew* that was a close run thing. It appears I have managed to escape the wrath of the Bridezilla and am now able to return here!

Re: 1190: "Time"

Pro-tip for a molpish life: if you are ever in charge of room bookings for a building, make sure you never double-book events. Especially if one of those events is a wedding. Sadly, I don't think I can avoid unmolpishness by hiding somewhere :( If I don't post again, you'd best send Neil looking for...

No, seriously, there's a slippery slope heading towards the basement. We really should fix that.
