The 'Getting to Know You Meme'.
Tagged (by default) by [ profile] annella


The one which appears on my birth certificate. It's not short of anything. I haven't forgotten the 'h'. It's Katie with a 'Y'.

User/screen name and nickname given to me by my mum. It makes more sense if you know my middle name is Samantha.

Nickname which came about on a road trip I took with one of my rl!bffs back in 1999. At the time, Tristo (or more accurately, Tristan) was a player for our favourite sporting club, Melbourne Storm. A fictional conversation between Lisa and I, pretending to me Matty Geyer (another player) and Tristan Brady Smith, lead to me being called Tristo and Lisa being called Matty. For some reason, Tristo stuck. It could be because I often refer to myself as 'Tristo' in the third person. Or it might not. :) Even Lisa's three year old son, Ryan, and his three year old cousin, Campbell, call me Tristo. Well, Aunty Tristo. :P

I probably wasn't meant to be sharing this much detail, was I? Nevermind, I'm redefining the rules of this meme! Read more...  )

Premium Hollywood interviews Christian Kane.

He talks mostly about Leverage (there's a casting spoilers for the finale), answers one question about Angel, and speaks, somewhat confusingly, about his music career.

He says he'll have a song out before they begin filming season two of Leverage in April but he can't talk about it because he's not on his own?!?!?

Awesome! If there's a song before April, I'll be happy as a lark but...

Huh? What?
Not on his own in the room where he's giving the interview?
Not on his own in Nashville?
Not on his own in the Studio?
Not on his own in life?
Not on his own because some intelligence organisation has 24/7 surveillance on him?
Not on his own because the rest of the team are only ever as far away as the other end of a comm?

If anyone can get anything more from that last paragraph, please share. LOL.

“It’s an evolving thing. It’s so interesting to see how people have reacted to it … his fighting powers come from his hair … opponents are so dazzled by his pretty hair that they don’t see the punch coming…”

- Dean Devlin, creator of Leverage, on Christian Kane's hair.

We all knew Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane) must have a trick or two up his sleeve when it comes to his ability to take down the bad guys but who guessed it involved a bottle of Pantene and a hair straightener? *g*

Dean Devlin was interviewed over at Cliqueclack and, among other things, he discusses the casting and development of each character, including why Eliot Spencer has that hair. Incidentally, it was Christian's idea. :) It's also interesting to hear what each cast member brought to to each character during their audition for the role.

The interview is mostly non-spoilery, however, towards the bottom there are 7 bullet points under the heading "A few little gems:" which do contain very minor and vague spoilers. They will be easy enough to avoid as you read the rest of the article.

My brother sent me the link to an entry on Wil Wheaton's blog and from there I found the Dean Devlin interview. Both Dean and Wil talk about a what they both refer to as the "Great Wheaton Hockey Scandal of 1991." On a side note, I used to read Wil's Wheaton's blog, WWdN: In Exile all the time and will be forever grateful to him for introducing him to one of my favourite bands ever, The Shins.

★ *ignores the fact that it's now Wednesday and posts Pig 'n a Poke post anyway*

★ On the train on the way to work today I was re-watching the first episode of Leverage and completely missed my stop! When I first watched the episode months ago I don't remember being all that fussed about it but this morning I was totally engrossed in it. All of a sudden it was dark outside the train and it took me a moment to realise we were in The Loop already. *facepalm* I'm totally blaming geeky!christian for that.

Can anyone tell me when the next episode of Leverage airs? Is it tonight? Or next Sunday or Tuesday? *is confused*

★ I filled up my car with petrol yesterday and only paid 99.9c per litre. \O/ It hasn't been that cheap in months. In October we were paying up to $1.50c per litre. It's so ace filling the tank and only having to hand over $40.

★ Wow. This is the post in which I talk about the price of petrol. This isn't going to go down as the most exciting post in the history of posts, is it? Sorry about that. *sigh*

★ Winnie is currently snoozing on my foot. I'm very grateful she's not biting it like she normally does but she goes from sleep to full power in less than 1.3 seconds so my toes are still facing imminent danger. ;)

★ Happy Tuesday!Wednesday... see you later today for Winchester Wednesday #2 :)
Check out what was waiting on my desk when I got to work this morning:

Kane Kane Acoustic Live in London

Lisa ~ I'll bring your copy to the game on Sunday, 'kay.

Friday tomorrow. Yay!  That is all.

EDIT: There was one more thing I wanted to say: Andrew Johns, you really are a dud boy!  *roll eyes*  What a dick!
