as was demonstrated in an interview with katie couric, sarah palin is unable to name any supreme court case other than roe v. wade.

the rules: post info about ONE supreme court decision, modern or historic, to your lj. (any decision, as long as it's not roe v. wade.)


okay, i know i haven't posted in forever, but i couldn't resist this meme. one of my absolute favorites:

hustler magazine, inc vs. jerry falwell: in order to protect the free flow of ideas and opinions on matters of public interest and concern, the first and fourteenth amendments prohibit public figures and public officials from recovering damages for the tort of intentional infliction of emotional distress by reason of the publication of a caricature (such as the ad parody at issue) without showing in addition that the publication contains a false statement of fact which was made with "actual malice," i.e., with knowledge that the statement was false or with reckless disregard as to whether or not it was true.
enkeli: (missed you)
'sup, y'all? how's tricks? :)

okay, i've got like five million half-written posts that i've been trying to finish since like, *looks at lj calendar* ... uh, yeah. obviously, if i wait until i finish any one of them to post anything, well, who knows when i will post again?

so, to get back in the swing of things, i found a meme (somewhere? i don't know where...) that looks like it could be fun for all (read: you get to do most of the work!):

all you have to do is comment to this post with questions you'd like to know about me. whatever strikes your fancy. it can be as simple as "what's your favorite movie?" (actually, if you know me at all, you know that's not a simple question) to "how old were you when you got your first kiss?" or whatever. fandom-related questions are allowed, of course!

it's like spin the bottle, but with no bottle. and no closet. and no kissing of any kind really. and the non-existent bottle is pointed forever at me.

*closes eyes* *clicks post button*

let the games begin!

eta: just a quick note - since fandom related questions are allowed, comments might contain spoilers. :)

... but it's only magic if you USE IT. (PSST- I THINK FIVE MIGHT STILL BE MAGICAL THOUGH!)

1) went to the comic book store last night to pick up issue #5 of buffy season 8 and issue #4 of spn: origins. i'm glad i waited to get buffy #5; they always hold both covers for me and dark horse only had one cover at comic-con. i have the most awesomest #5 cover ever!
1a) ended up having a very lengthy discussion with the comic book boyz re. comic-con. one of them mentioned going to see the documentary "the king of kong" panel and a heated debate over level 2 and level 3 of the game ensued. CURSE YOU FOREVER LEVEL 3 ELEVATORS OF DOOM.
1b) comic book boyz have basically taken to SHOWING ME THEIR ORDER CATALOG to make sure i have all the stuff i want in my pull bin. *squishes them*
2) i attempted to drive to the office today and was thwarted by the gold line. seeing as i was trying to get to the office in time for a series of back to back meetings, i promptly turned around and headed back home. it was sorta like a do-over!
3) i am trying to hold out until september (and expected announcements re. new ipods) before i get an iphone BUT I DO NOT KNOW IF I AM THAT STRONG? i do know that my ever-abusive bf steve has called the press to cupertino on 7 aug. HMM.
4) twin peaks gold box set WITH BOTH THE US AND EUROPEAN PILOTS on october 30! (don't worry, season one and two sets, i will still love you the same!)
5) thanks to [livejournal.com profile] bigboobedcanuck, i will soon be the proud owner of friday night lights - season one for USD 19.99. la la la, do not need to wait for repeats, LA!
6) THEY TOLD ME BOURNE WAS COMING HOME TODAY WHERE IS HE ALREADY?
7) we're starting to hit the best part of summer - the part where SUMMER IS ALMOST OVER HAHAHA. o, october, how i long for you and your new episodes of supernatural!
8) dinner with billie rae tonight. i wonder which justin ringtone she is using this week?
9) man, i really need some new icons.

must finish sending out meeting requests so i can get on the freeway!
enkeli: (HOORAY)
man, you guys!

as most of you know, i'm not one to make a big fuss about my bday (mainly because i suck so bad at remembering everyone else's bday). so, imagine my surprise to log on last week and see so many bday wishes for meeeee! as per usual, my mum sent a ridiculously large bouquet (she's a leo, what can you do?), which was awesome except that it was a bouquet of chocolate covered strawberries that i didn't get until almost 6p. yeah, that's right, no one around to help me eat them. and i just changed the weight on my dl, too.

and then if that wasn't fantastic enough, around 11pm i started seeing loads and loads of jared picspam because HIS birthday was on the 19th. so, you know, thank you jared. :)

in conclusion: flist, you are AWESOME! thank you for all of the birthday wishes!

more soon re. hp book 7 and my whirlwind july. no really. i swear!

interview meme!!!eleventy!11

1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favorite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.

2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.

3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions. (so i edited this question - sue me. that whole "you WILL" bit bothered me, okay? :))

4. You will include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.

5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.

questions from eliste_writes )

sitting at the farm at the grove. where o where is [livejournal.com profile] lenabee? *cries*

also, pistachio-encrusted chicken fingers - very ill-conceived, and not just because of the slight green tinge it gave.
enkeli: (tardis calling)
from today's wsj:

hackers bypass iphone limits - aka IPHONE JIGGERY POKERY )

my question is: why would you pay $600 for what is essentially a widescreen ipod with wifi and bluetooth? the whole reason it's $600 is the phone crap. srsly, y'all, my abusive bf steve will come through NO REALLY HES NOT JUST SAYING IT THIS TIME.

my predicition: widescreen ipod w/ wifi and bluetooth (incl safari etc.) by september at the latest. announcement in august.

my hope: it will also include newton's handwriting recognition technology. (ultimately, i'd hoped for a slot drive to play mini-dvds, but i realise that would go against the whole itunes movie download market. not to mention i heard that sony is scrapping the whole mini-dvd movie thinger; hell, you can rip movies for view on your psp anyway.)
enkeli: (*hides*)
...which has considerably more than five things in. hahaahahah.

fivety! )

harry and the potters tonight! EEE!
enkeli: (2 people + 2 gether = 4EVA)
dear brain:

hey, how's it goin'? long time, no talk, I know. things have been kinda busy around here lately.

so, i don't know if you recall, but we've had discussions on this topic previously. i thought we had an understanding, you know? at least, i thought, we'd agreed to disagree. don't ask, don't tell. that kind of thing.

see, here's the deal: when you decide to dream about jared padalecki, it should look at LOT more like this and A LOT LESS less like jared dressed as the man in the yellow hat. (although, i always liked the man in the yellow hat... and i did, for a while, think the man in the yellow hat was a fireman, which given that i watched "devil's trap" the other night sorta makes sense BUT STILL I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO MAKE EXCUSES FOR YOU BRAIN.)

if this continues, i'll have to take drastic measures.

so, i am on my way back from breakfast with [livejournal.com profile] lenabee and there must be some sort of awful accident on the 134 because i have been at a standstill for almost an hour now. anyway, i just saw this guy get out of his car and not just take pics but had someone else get out of their car and TAKE A PIC OF HIM on the freeway.

of course i'm blogging so i can't throw any stones but STILL! OUT OF HIS CAR! dude.
enkeli: (Default)
dear firefox:

i'm sorry, darlin', but i think our time together has come to an end. it's not you, it's me and my old bf safari, who apparently went away and found himself and is now back and really has his shit together this time, so i'm gonna give it a shot.

dear steve jobs:

why do you look so hot standing in front of gigantic application icons?

yours in lust,
~e

and in conclusion, a meme - from [livejournal.com profile] dionneshea:
1. My username is _____ because ____.
2. My journal is titled ____ because ____.
3. My subtitle is ____ because ____.
4. My friends page is called ____ because ____.
5. My default userpic is ____ because ____.

what's your name, little girl? )

um.

i am posting this from a SAFARI browser window on WINDOWS.

*sobs*

eta: these are tears of JOY AND JUBILEE, Y'ALL.
enkeli: (Default)
i feel it is my duty to post this RIGHT AWAY:

harry and the potters - back on tour for summer 2007! )

i've only posted the socal dates, but you can find the full tour schedule here.
enkeli: (muppetarm flail!)
... she doesn't post in MONTHS and her first post is about THIS?!

that's right, because now it's official:

from marc berman's programming insider:

the cw's fall 2007 primetime schedule )

NOW i can do my spastic dance of joy. *dance spasm*

more soon! like after i have a nap or something.
enkeli: (Default)
i was going to cut this, but how often to you hear from me these days? i think y'all can stand a little enkelispam. besides, i cut SOME of them. consider this a compromise. :)

- 'member how i was going to have jury duty and get lots of things typed up and posted? 'member that? yeah, that didn't happen. but i suppose you all figured that out by now. you're a crafty lot, you are! so, in short, i win! but i also lose. but! i have all of those awesome spn posts written down *waves notebook*. and jury duty was rescheduled.

- joss is no longer doing wonder woman. too bad, so sad. HOWEVER. this means he's TOTALLY free to write an ep of supernatural. puhleeeeeeze? if it's good enough for ben edlund...? i will totally let you stalk me again at comic-con, joss!

- JOHNNY FUCKING MARR IS WORKING WITH MODEST MOUSE. WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THIS!!!11!11eleventyone!!11 just for that, y'all should go and download their new single IMMEDIATELY.

- dear jared: i didn't mean to stalk u baby. xoxo, me. )

- from the spam folders: message subject "fw:Jared getting HOT". um, excuse me, spammers - where the hell have you been? APPARENTLY YOU HAVE NOT HEARD OF THE BINDERS SPAMMERS.

- dear earth, i'm sorry about global warming. no really i am. but for serious, if you're going to freeze over in a big snow hurricane tornado thinger, then pleasepleaseplease trap me in a library with jake gyllenhaal. your friend, me.

- I HAVE ORDERED TWIN PEAKS SEASON TWO FROM AMAZON. like, i cried when i clicked on the purchase now button. that being said, FANDOM YOU ARE NOW ON NOTICE. first johnny marr, now this? why hast thou forsaken me, fandom?

- finally, someone explains rps in terms i can understand. *g* (ps. never stop being CRAZYawesome, supernatural fandom.)

- oh! yeah, so there's this book coming out this summer. guess it's sort of a big deal or something because people are already talking about it and like books come out every summer and stuff? yeah. in the immortal words of ron weasley: you're gonna suffer, but you're gonna be happy about it.

- wherein enkeli almost causes traffic mayhem. )

- so, if you don't know what the tca press tour is, you probably won't care about this next bit. but if you doooooo, you might actually petition to have my fangrrl membership revoked after i explain this next bit to you. )

- also, i guess you figured out that holiday cards didn't really happen. but never fear! i've still got something to send those of you who filled out my little poll. i've not given up yet!

- IPHONE. yeah, i think that pretty much nails it.

still to come (some day... er, yeah): enkeli world tour '07: memphis, tn!
enkeli: (xmas!)
i posted this a couple of years ago, but it's always worth sharing again. even if you don't celebrate christmas, i think the sentiment is pretty universal.

yes, virginia, there is a santa claus. )

ps. i'm sure you've all guessed by now that your cards are going to be late. they will still have the requisite holiday cheer, i promise!

pps. don't you wish your middle name was pharcellus? ;)
enkeli: (xmas!)
all right, youse. i have a LOT going on: my current "outage", lots of supernatural to recap, my wife to murder, guilder to blame for it, etc. etc.. but there are only so many more days until YOU KNOW WHEN and i need your address! (granted, i might already have your address, but humor me. even if you KNOW i have it, put it in the poll. don't worry; no one can see the answers but meeeeee.)

[Poll #891589]

so, last year, i let y'all choose what kind of card you want. this year? ITS A CHRISTMUKAHTATORSHIP. besides, if you require something other than a red and green holiday card, i probably know.

ALSO. like last year, if you live outside of the US, DONT BE AFRAID OF MY POLL. just because i screwed up on the postage last year and you didn't get your enkelicard(tm) doesn't mean i didn't try, yeah? (what? i had them in a bundle with a bunch of other cards and maybe they didn't have postage on and for whatever reason they weren't sent back to me. point: they were in the pile and filled with holiday cheer!!)

WHY ARE YOU STILL READING AND NOT TYPING OMG?!?
enkeli: (winchesters are made of awesome)
i am still at work and like a DUMMY refreshed my flist when i KNOW east coasters are going to be posting about the new ep of supernatural right now.

silly silly enkeli. you know better than that.

*bounces* man, i can't even concentrate on my work, i am so excited about NEW SUPERNATURAL YAAAAAAAAY!
enkeli: (cold cruel world (roslin))
um, hi. :) so, i know it's been forever. but seriously, every time i get some time to write in this thing, something work-related comes up. it also doesn't help that i've been working, for all intents and purposes, two jobs since about... may? this year? yeah. more on My Life Since 17 July later.

just to illustrate - paint a word picture, if you will - of how life conspires against my blogging, i give you, gentle readers, exhibit a, in the case of enkeli vs. livejournal: the glorious text you see below? i meant to post it TWO THURSDAYS AGO (along with a little recap of spn 2.01 "in my time of dying") when, you know, it would have been RELEVANT. instead i got stuck in waaaay too much holiday traffic, tried to catch up on sleep (failed), had a week's worth of all-day meetings, bollocks'd up my jury duty (rescheduled for this week, yay), and now can't get my wireless router to work.

but, you know what? in the spirit of POSTING SOMETHING, i say fuck it. you get it now.

so, take yourself back, back, back. maybe you'd had too much turkey. maybe you and your little brother got into a fight with the reddi whip (what, it happens). it was thanksgiving and you were, um, giving thanks. *g*

stuff for which i am thankful )

boy, that's a lot.

and since i'm clearly on a roll, and i've got most of it typed anyway, you'll be getting that supernatural recap, too. but like, not now. i've even got one for "everybody loves a clown". actually, i've got one for each ep this season, just never finished them, because - well, we already went through this, didn't we? also, most of them consisted of "askfs'a;sfkdj'alhkf" and "oh, dean!" i guess it's a good thing i will have a lot of time on my hands waiting in the jury duty green room tomorrow.
