LJ 20th anniversary

You can get your own card here!

the amazing race is back

i didn't think it was going to happen any time soon. it usually alternates between summer & fall and the last one was in jan. & feb. 2018 (according to wikipedia)

no sure i'm all that interested in this one as it is contestants from CBS' reality shows. but it's on the DVR list and i will reserve judgement until after watching the first episode.

mystery (partially) solved

a few months ago i posted, wondering why i've been seeing so many designer bags lately. well i've solved part of the mystery, specifically (possibly) i see so much coach stuff.

i discovered the coach outlet the other day that not far north of me. so that's where some of this might be coming from.

burberry should being doing this instead of burning stuff that doesn't sale (although they're supposed to be stopping that) to "preserve its reputation of exclusivity." joke's on them, i see their stuff on shopgoodwill all of the time.

in other designer sighting news; i saw my first kate spade bag last week. a couple of weeks before christmas i saw a woman with a small bag for one of the KS stores that she was stuffing into a small box, so someone got a wallet, or phone cover for christmas or a birthday.

found via [Unknown LJ tag]
I overheard that my job's pediatric clinic is running out of books and there's very little room in the budget (we are a community health center and are publically funded!) to buy more books. So, without the knowledge of the pediatric clinic, as I want to give their incredibly stressed supervisory staff and the patients a really great surprise, I'm organizing a little book drive.

If you have any books in your home that are:

appropriate for English or Spanish speaking kids

who are the ages of 3 - 17 years old

in as new, fine or very good condition (good condition possible, but we will need to discuss exactly what isn't in very good condition about it)

that you don't want in your home anymore

Could you consider giving them to our pediatric clinic? I am broke as all get out, and not able to pay for anything, so I'm asking for people to donate the shipping costs (to NYC) as well out of the goodness of your hearts. All of our patients have some kind of mental health issue and many have chronic illnesses as well. Our books are used in the waiting room and in therapy sometimes, but the most important thing about the books is that kids who love a book can take it home.

more about what they're looking for at the original post.

but i was going though my "pointing" tag, thinking to reduce it some (spoiler: did not do as much as i hoped) & in the process found that all of those texts from ____ things are inactive. except for one[Unknown LJ tag]

i haven't checked it out in a long time, but found some knew stuff that i keep trying to imagine actors' voices for. so if you have a LOT of time to kill check it out.

also, some time ago i found[Unknown LJ tag](don't think i posted it) it appears to be defunct now, but they have some good ones too that i keep trying to imagine actors' voices for.

Deep Space Nine is described as “dark,” “edgy,” and “the black sheep” of the Star Trek family – a show that did not fit in Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future. 20 years after it left the airwaves, fans all over the world continue to watch Deep Space Nine with the same affection they feel for the other Star Trek series.

Through extensive interviews with cast and creators, show footage presented in HD for the first time anywhere, and brand-new animated storyboards showing what could have been and what still might be, directors Ira Steven Behr (showrunner of the original series) and David Zappone (Star Trek docs The Captains and For the Love of Spock), bring you What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, an in-depth look at this beloved show, its fans, and its ongoing appeal to Trekkies of all ages.

This one-night event will include an exclusive two-sided poster (11x17, limited quantities) as well as a roundtable discussion on the making of the documentary.

tickets go on sale april 12

The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher

from amazon;

When Carrie Fisher discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved—plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naiveté, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Before her passing, her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon was indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a teenager with an all-consuming crush on her costar, Harrison Ford.

With these excerpts from her handwritten notebooks, The Princess Diarist is Fisher’s intimate and revealing recollection of what happened on one of the most famous film sets of all time—and what developed behind the scenes. Fisher also ponders the joys and insanity of celebrity, and the absurdity of a life spawned by Hollywood royalty, only to be surpassed by her own outer-space royalty. Laugh-out-loud hilarious and endlessly quotable, The Princess Diarist brims with the candor and introspection of a diary while offering shrewd insight into one of Hollywood's most beloved stars.

more kind & genital than shockaholic, this book is mainly "i accidentally starred in one of the biggest movies of all time & (sort of) accidentally had an affair with my marred co-star.

and you'd think that the behind-the-scenes crew would want to stay close to home & have dinner with their families when they could. but no, most would rather be on location, getting on location Per diem & trying to hook-up with the locals.

it also goes into how weird it is to make personal appearances & sign stuff (which she called "lap dances") and was honest in saying she was doing it for the money.

R.I.P ms. fisher
