sunshine_queen: Tricia being fierce, as always. (SpyFam- india- _ladydisdain)
Those of you who are friends of facebook might have been all, omg, why is Madi suddenly a young blonde girl in 1973? And the answer is "I put up a picture of my mom for mother's day because my mom wanted to do it and because there were some awesome pictures."

And because it's not mother's day year round, and because I expect everyone in my family to return to their normal pictures tomorrow, I decided to compile them here.

old timey photos of my mother and grandmothers )

In conclusion, happy mother's day to all! ♥ ♥ ♥

So, Tricia and Katee have announced that they're going to be doing this motorcycle ride for charity from Los Angeles to New Orleans, because they are awesome in many senses. In a the car today driving back from grocery store, while behind a motorcycle, I mention this to my mother, who promptly starts to frown.

"Well," she says when I ask her what her damage is, "it's very difficult on the kidneys. Riding that long. Something about the vibrations."

"Oh, well then," I say easily, "I'll make sure to warn them."

"You don't want anything to happen to them! The girls should know!"

My family: making celebrities sound like personal friends since 1996.

Real text messages between me and my mom:

Mom: Is Gaius in Bridget Jones?
Me: Yes.
Mom: AHA! I knew it! Mel said it wasn't him. I AM KING OF THE LAB!

There were very, very dramatic events that unfolded last night involving text messages, and I kind of want to post an entire entry about it, but right now I'm so drained after talking about it all day that I can't bear the idea of writing it all down. Rest assured, it is very dramatic and unbelievable, and, spoiler alert: I had to call the police at 5:30 in the morning.

So, my mom knows... next to nothing about BSG. That's kind of a lie. She knows a lot of random bits and pieces of BSG that I don't think she should know (like Kara Thrace's actions in Unfinished Business, which she can recount in detail many months later, the fact that Caprica and Tigh had a thing HOW DID SHE REMEMBER THAT?!) and then totally can't remember things that I think she should know (more important details than that, like the fact that Cylons download.)

We just had this conversation that made me legit LOL like five times.

In which I explain how a lack of ~*~love~*~ killed Liam, how Ellen is Caprica's Cylon Mom, and wind up talking about Cylon incest. It's awesome. )

Moviemaker James Cameron has confirmed he will bring Titanic back to the big screen in 3D in 2012


In related news, yesterday in the car with my mom and sister I heard "My Heart Will Go On" for the first time in... months. When it came on the radio, I was happy, and we all listened to it in contented silence.

Then we got to Target, and this happened while waiting for the elevator.

Me: That was... kind of awful.
Mel: Oh my god, I thought the same thing but I was scared to say it!
Mom: I can't believe what I'm hearing.
Me: No, but it was actually horrible. Why was it so popular?!
Mel: Right? It won awards!
Mom: Who are you two?
Me: [getting an unstoppable giggle fit] And the worst thing is, James Cameron did not want a song.
Mel: Oh my god, so-
Me: [near hysterics] THAT CONVINCED HIM. They wrote that song and played it and James Cameron thought, this! This is perfect.

Why don't I have a Titanic icon anymore? Oh, I remember, BSG obliterated all other interests from being represented. Way to dominate, team.

Mom: How did I know [Boomer] was an eight?
Me: Because she a Cylon.
Mom: [happily] I like the Sevens.
Me: Um. how?
Mom: [like, 'duh'] Um, she's Tricia Helfer.

Which lead to the singular joy of explaining to my mom about the miscount, and the final five and whatever (her reaction was: YOU HAD A PICTURE TAKEN WITH A CYLON?! ... ... ... Oh wait, you also had pictures taken with Tigh and Mrs Tigh) and about the Caprica/Tigh/Liam debacle (which had my mom all indignant that Caprica had a baby not with Gaius, and all concerned about Tigh, who was married to "the beautiful lady!"

I know I say my mom is awesome a lot, but sometimes she proves it so thoroughly. Example: tonight she sent me a link to a drag queens' dressmaker who specializes in sequin gowns. So we're talking about the gowns and stuff and discussing sequins and the like, and this happened:

Me: there are so many of these dresses i want
Me: i was raised by a pack of drag queens
Ma: you were raised by me is that almost the same thing?

Soooo... I kind of started watching Dollhouse today. I really didn't know what to expect going in- mostly because I've been reviling/relentlessly mocking the premise since before it premiered- and I'm still as confused now as I was before. Adelle DeWitt? Totally awesome. Laurent Dominic? I could totally start to dig him. African-American Gentleman who is Not Dixon but Should Be (and who I've been referring to as NotDix)? Nice. MORALLY UPSTANDING GENTLEMAN CAPTAIN KARL "HELO" AGATHON? DELIGHTFUL AS ALWAYS. (Yeah, he has another name on this show. No, I don't foresee myself using it.) The girl whose face I thought was really weird but who, upon watching her act, has won me over a bit? ... Okayish. Echo? Shut up. Shut up always. Clients who know what they're doing and then are weird? Shut up. Creepy mind erasing? Shut up. The fact that I can't seem to get it through my head that there is only one Echo and one Sierra etc etc and not multiples and if they die, that is, in fact, the end for them, aka, THEY ARE NOT CYLONS? Shut up, Self.

IN CONCLUSION: Nita told me it gets better further in, so I am going to get the second disc and... might just keep watching for Adelle, because she wears elegantly foxy outfits and has a very pleasant voice and looks like a very classy, very British AHC, which, win, AND ALSO ONE DAY BAMBER AND HOGAN WILL COME :-D. So yeah. That's me and Dollhouse.

(Also today it came out that my mom apparently has a thing for James Callis as Gaius? She really only saw him in the miniseries and then when he was on trial. I don't even know.)

Me: [explains why tricia wasn't the best hostess for canada's next top model]
Mom: And, she's a cylon.
Me: Right, I forgot about that.
Mom: No one taught her! It wasn't her fault!

Me: all i can think is "get in, loser, we're going shopping"
Hannah: ahhahaha
Me: lauroslin is totally the queen bee, don't even
Hannah: dude, i am aware
Hannah: (Gaius is Gretchen)

Hannah and I love making it Mean Girls: BSG )

Real conversations with my mom:

Ma: "humans have to eat. but cylons don't. do they?"
Me: "yeah, they do, ma."
Ma: "oh, i guess they do. can they have babies?"
Me: "... dude, you really have never seen this show, have you?"

Ma: "the guy who loses an eye, he was a cylon, right?"
Me: "you mean the badass colonel tigh? yeah, he's a cylon."
Ma: "there are alcoholic cylons too!"
Me: "cylons come in all shapes and colors."
Ma: [accusingly] "you said they only came in certain flavors!"

Ma: "if i could be a cylon, i'd want to be red."
Me: "me too, ma."
