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! ♥ ♥ ♥

Day 17 → An art piece

(I couldn't resist having a Kara icon.)

Day 13 → A fictional book

I don't... get it? A fictional book that I liked? That I hated? That I'm currently reading? That I last finished? I NEED MORE DETAILS PLEASE.

So I'm just... going with one I like.

Whenever you touched me, I knew you were comparing me with Rebecca. Whenever you looked at me or spoke to me, or walked with me in the garden, I knew you were thinking, "This I did with Rebecca, and this, and this." It's true, isn't it?

I was a really warped little kid, and I read this book when I was like... eleven. And I have read it about a hundred times since then. The writing is so fluid and beautiful, and you can picture everything so perfectly. I love the plot and the characters, I love how Rebecca never shows up, I love that the narrator is never named. I love speculating on the narrator's name. I love that it was made into a wonderful Hitchcock film that actually does the book justice (for the most part. Moral codes in Hollywood were lame at the time and changed the ending, BUT IT'S STILL A GREAT FILM.) Anyway, I highly recommend it.

Day 11 → A photo of you taken recently

Well, I don't... take pictures too often, apparently, and very rarely are they of me alone, I cropped Mel out from this year's Christmas card photo shoot in late December, so here you go.

I'm also extra super pale, in case you hadn't noticed.

Who is a big old nerd?

I am!

I was like, I want to paint my jacket! I want to show my devotion to television! I know: I'll paint the Eye of Jupiter! And it can be like a litmus test for fellow nerds- if they recognize it, they watch too! If they can't identify it, well, it's not incriminating on it's own!

Stealth geekage: it's all I ask for in life.

I skipped a day! Lo siento. I know you guys were all just dying for it.

Day 09 → A photo you took

I take a lot of pictures of flowers. )

I think is one of my favorite entries for this meme, because I love seeing pictures of people when they were younger.

Day 10 → A photo of you taken over ten years ago

I couldn't choose between these two, and they're both... oh, way older than ten years ago. Also, if you'll notice, I look EXACTLY THE SAME as I did twenty years ago. It's a bit unsettling.

It's like I'm stuck in a timewarp. )

Day 08 → A photo that makes you angry/sad

So, here is the dealio. I had a really hard time thinking of an image that made me angry or sad that didn't veer into weird places. Like, I could post the picture of Ellen and Saul Tigh right before he tragically kills her and she gracefully accepts it and it's the saddest thing ever, but that's not... taking the meme seriously! On the other hand, the picture that legitimately makes me sad is at my parent's house, and it's of the sister my dad had who died before he was born of leukemia, and she's two and looks so precious, and on the back my grandmother had written about Mercy sending besitos and it's just devastating. So nether of these are things I want on my LJ, despite the instructions from the meme (and I really don't want to google search pictures of things that make me mad). So I'm taking this in an entirely different direction.

I want to preface this by saying that I really do love Katee Sackhoff (and Kara!) and I think she's a great actress and quite lovely to boot, but KATHRYN ANN SACKHOFF, WHAT IS GOING ON HERE. This is her attending a legit event IN 2009 but for some reason it looks like she thought it was happening in 1995? That dress. The choker. Those shoes. (Those... stockings? Is she wearing frakking stockings? Katee, honey, no.) The hair and the lipstick and, god bless her, the whole ensemble is a lot of look and she is a sweet girl but no. No. She looks like a Russian prostitute in the mid-90s and that is a look that is suited to no one. This picture makes me sad, sad, sad.

Day 07 → A photo that makes you happy

This may not be the most attractive picture of my sister or me, but goddamn do I love it. It was our 2008 Christmas photo shoot, and when we were getting ready to do it for some reason Mel and I were sniping at one another about stupid things, and then we went outside to take pictures and my mom got all snitty, and in response, Mel and I got... giddy? EVERYTHING WAS FUNNY. We were in hysterics the whole time and enjoying ourselves and then Mom got happy too and it was just the best. Just looking at it reminds me of that afternoon and it makes me smile.
