Just some more of the photos I took on Day 1.
It's nearly 2:00AM and I should be in bed so I apologise for lack of commentary.
These haven't been edited. Only resized for fast and easy uploading.

There are more photos which I'll upload later in the week along with larger versions of these ones if people want them.

Feel free to link or take but please credit me if used or reposted. Ta.

Enjoy. :)

The 'Getting to Know You Meme'.
Tagged (by default) by [livejournal.com 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...  )

☀ Here I am on Day 2 of my annual leave (not including the weekend) and all I've done is watch Martha Stewart, Ellen, The View, Ready Steady Cook, old episodes of A Country Practice, and the occasional episode of Leverage. *is being lazy*

☀ Victoria was on 'Fire Alert' again today because of the high temperatures and high winds expected. Around 300 schools across the state were closed as a precaution, including the school across the road from my house. *gulp* Can you believe it? While school kids across the other side of the world were having a 'Snow Day', kids here were having a 'Fire Day'. Luckily, it was nowhere near as hot as expected and the wind seemed to have less impact than expected.

☀ Speaking of wind, let me share with you this little bit of advice:
If it hasn't rained during the past 13 years and it's a really, really, really windy day, you probably shouldn't rely on a screen door. This is kinda gross but... )

☀ It's raining now and has been for the past four hours. \O/ I moved my car out from under the carport into the rain so it could have a shower. I'm hoping some of the dirt and grime that's accumulated on it will wash off.

☀ It's Tuesday but there's no Leverage. :( Is it June yet? Apparently they are filming the new season in in Portland, Oregon. Does anyone live in Portland? Can I come visit? Please?

☀ Once upon a time I used to watch another TV Show which starred two extremely talented guys, who also happen to be extremely hot, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padasomething.

It seems like only yesterday I looked up a new show called Supernatural on IMDB.com and said, to no one in particular,
"Hey, Jared, you're that dude from Gilmore Girls and Jensen... sorry, dude, I have no idea where you're from."
Hard to believe it was almost four years ago.

Today, I still watch Supernatural and I still talk to myself. Just ask work!bff. ;)
Jensen and Jared... Don't try to deny their epic romance. )

☀ Happy Tuesday!

Supernatural Season Five.

Well, if that hasn't just made my fudgin' week.

More Jensen. More Jared. More JensenandJared. Oh, and Misha better cancel any gigs he's got lined up for the new season because from what we've heard, he's a regular cast member now.

In addition to Supernatural being renewed, it rained in Melbourne overnight. The real honest to God wet stuff. Today is just like Christmas! \O/

★ Another Tuesday, another pig 'n a poke. \O/

★ Things have cooled down here in the last couple of days. Thankfully! Starting last Tuesday we had four days of over 43°C (110°F) in Melbourne. *dies* I've never been so glad to go to work, if only to sit in an air conditioned office all day.

Hot in the city... )

★ The battery in 'Dean the Green Machine' (my laptop) is dying. I had to order a new one today and those things are definitely not cheap. On a positive note, when fully charged, my new battery should last me 3-4 hours. My current battery lasts 40 minutes; if I'm lucky.

★ I may have already posted about this but Leverage has been renewed for a second season. \O/

Supernatural. Just thought I'd throw that in because I'm beginning to feel a little guilty with all the love I'm throwing Leverage's way.

★ It's 'Winchester Wednesday' tomorrow. Don't forget to send me a photo of your cat or dog or guinea pig if you want them to be 'Guest Pet of the Week'. :)

★ Happy Tuesday!

This morning I was thinking about what I should include in my regular 'Pig 'n a Poke' post entry. I formulated a mental list of sorts, with the highlight being me whining about the hot weather. Just before I left for work I read the news that Kim Manners had passed away. What existed of my poorly formulated post was immediately forgotten and all that was left held no relevance. After all, the weather doesn't really matter.

In between thinking about Kim Manners and how the people who knew him were coping and trying to concentrate on work, I didn't give my post much thought. Driving home, I realised I'd like to say more about Kim but I wasn't sure what, or how. When the going gets tough, words and I don't get on very well. That's when I realised I could hopefully honour Kim, in my own way. Hopefully this post will do that.

♥ ♥ ♥

If someone was to ask me, what is the first scene(s) that comes to mind when you think of Supernatural, I wouldn't hesitate before describing this one:

Episode 1x03: Dead in the Water. Directed by Kim Manners

For the first two years, this is how I saw Supernatural. Dean pulling Lukas, unconscious from the water, has stayed with me since the first time I saw it. This was a show about heroes and saving people and the toll it took on these two boys. This one scene summed it up. Kim directed this scene. This image was Kim's vision.

But wait! There's a couple more... )

After all this, what I really want to say is: Thank you, Kim.

♥ ♥ ♥

OK, now it's your turn, dear flist.

What is the first scene(s) that comes to mind when you think of Supernatural?

It goes without saying, it doesn't have to be a scene directed by Kim Manners. :)

★ Spoilers for 4x12 ★
★ Speculation on where it's all gonna end ★

Something Dean and Sam said... )

Holy crap! I can't remember the last time I wrote so much about this show!
Have I ever written that much about it?

If not, here's 10 Reasons why you should perhaps start.

Between the epic love story of Sam and Dean and Misha Collins, there is something in this little show for absolutely everyone.

I'm probably preachin' to the choir posting this here but you gotta do your bit, right? XD

Happy Supernatural Day!

My new icon says it all and I'm hoping Santa knows I've been good this year.

After reading this, I'm really hoping Dawn Ostroff knows I've been good too! )

Warning: Possible spoilers for a possible Season Five. Possibly

...and so do I! OMG! I have so much one thing in common with each of the boys. \O/

At Chateau Padackles there is an unwritten rule which states the Play Station must be turned off long enough for Jensen to watch Dr. Phil and for Jared to watch Days of Our Lives. For what it's worth, Jared started watching Days while checking out the re-runs to see baby!Jensen. And while the show no longer holds the appeal it once did, aka. Jensen, he is none the less addicted.

At Chateau Padackles there is another rule, written this time, which states Jensen must never use any medical knowledge gained from Dr. Phil to attempt to diagnose any illness, psychological or physiological, which Jared, or his dogs, may or may not have.

Yeah, so I'm mildly disturbed about Dr. Phil being Jensen's 'guilty pleasure'... o_O

Chateau Padackles Rules - I may have made those up.

Or, more accurately, today

It's 1:58AM. Why am I not asleep? Oh that's right, I haven't reached the end of the internet yet. So much internet, so little time.

Random stuff today.

  1. Last night's episode of Supernatural on Aussie telly was 4x08: Wishful Thinking.
    Three things about 4x08:

    a). I'm pretty sure waiting for a 7ft teddy bear to pull the trigger is never going to get old

    b). Teddy Bear Doctors!
    best alias ever copy

    c). Does anyone else think that at least one person in the writer's room suggested Todd chase the bullies with a little help from Falkor?
    Falkor copy

  2. The other day I got this comment in response to the Jensen Ackles on Good News Week video I posted on YouTube earlier this year:

    jellahd: Aww i love the video, he's married to stephanie ware, so this video is an fake!!! I've never heard jensen say anything about dating anyone. Everyone knows that youtube carry alot of fake videos, it's sad because alot of people can't separate the fake videos from the real videos.

    A couple of people responded saying it's the real deal to which the user responded with:
    jellahd: I've already did...you pothead. But it seems to me you haven't used your brain to sit here and try and spread false rumors on jensen like that. He's married people , he said it himself all over the interviews and here in canada too.

    That's bizarre, right? I mean, Paul McDermott - the host of Good News Week - may worship at the Shrine of Jensen Ackles's Ass' but I don't think he's going to go through the effort of fabricating an entire episode of GNW.

    The funniest thing is that no where during his appearance on the show does Jensen even mention dating anyone or a girlfriend. *scratches head*

    Demons I get. People are crazy.

  3. This week's photo of Winchester is a little video. )

  4. Happy Tuesday!

Believe it or not I did actually get some work done while I was on my own in the office yesterday but my mind insisted on wandering a little bit during the quieter times. More specifically, it insisted on wandering to Supernatural related stuffs--I'm shocked at this unforseen turn of events!--and I got thinking about 4x04 and Dean's use of a particular nickname. It seems to have caused a little controversy with some people thinking it's kind of adorable while others think it should never be spoken of again.

Well, here's my take on it. Sort of.
Warning: Contains spoilers for Superatural 4x04

Did you really just call me 'Cas'? )

In other news--Jared and Jensen are going to be in Sydney, Australia, for a HUB Convention in April 2009! OMG! *does happy dance*
Team!Shortbus - Can we skip the movie that weekend and go see the boys instead? Please? :D

1) Not only is Tuesday Pig 'n a Poke day--which incidentally is aka a sausage in a pancake (Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] angieb5!)--it's also CHUCK day! And thanks to our new super duper fast internet connection I was able to download episode 2x03, and 2x03 of Californication, in less than an hour and a half! \O/

2) Sometimes I feel bad about downloading TV shows but when the alternative is having to wait for a local station here to air them I think to hell with it. You know you can justify anything... )

3) I downloaded Google Chrome last week and I rather like it. It seems a wee bit faster than both IE and Firefox and a little less cluttered somehow. One downside I've found so far is that I can't see my LJ header pic with it. I can see the pic just fine in IE but it doesn't show up in Chrome or, as it turns out, Firefox. Guess I should look at fixing that sometime soon. It's about time I changed my theme anyhow...

4) I've been watching Supernatural and I've loved every episode so far--the odd numbered ones more so than the even-- but I haven't been posting about it. woe is me... )

5) My brother has just recommended I watch, True Blood. I know I've seen a few posts on my flist about the show but I can't remember where. Anyone watching it?

6) I'm on my own at work tomorrow so I'll either, a) Get a ton of work done or b) get very little done at all. ;)

7) Happy Tuesday!

1. Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] ragingquiet26
Hope your first day in your 20's is a lovely one. *hugs* ♥ ♥ ♥

2. 26,500 Supernatural Season Three DVD boxsets will come with a 1:64 scale 1967 Chevy Impala. That is cool as! It's a pity I ordered my S3 DVDs from Amazon on Wednesday and my closest Best Buy store is about 8887 kilometres away. In Hawaii.

3. YKYMWTMSW... you consider the logistics of jumping on a plane to get to the above mentioned store to get the DVDs. Hehehe! Just kiddin' ;) Although, it is kind of tempting because it would also give me the chance to meet [livejournal.com profile] munibunny which I would love to do. :)

4. Does anyone watch Kyle XY? )

5. I had my haircut last night. It's no good. It's short and I can't figure out how to dry it and my new super duper, ionic powered, shine enhancing, frizz reducing hairdryer did not help one little bit.

6. Work!bff and I took a tram into the city at lunch time. We needed to get some stuff... )

7. I'm watching Supernatural 'Bloody Mary' on Fox 8 at the minute. Out of all the Urban Legends, I think Bloody Mary scares me the most. It's not like I believe 'she' exists but if there is a reflective surface nearby I cannot bring myself to say her name once, let alone three times, without getting all cold and shivery. And if someone taunts me and pretends like they are going to say it three times *glares at work!bff* I kind of freak out. *is totally irrational*

Random Episode Observations: Sammy is just a boy in this ep, with bangs. Dean is wearing a red shirt, I thought I was watching Smallville for a second there.
Random Episode Pondering: Will we ever find out why Dean's eyes were bleeding...

8. TGIF! \O/ 'Ave a good weekend. :)

Sam: Hey, Dean?
Dean: Yeah?
Sam: Um, since you got back from, umm, hell, you haven't, umm, been yourself and, umm, I ...
Dean: Sammy, you wanna spit it out some time this year?
Sam: I, umm, just wanted to do something nice for you so I, umm, took your baby in to get, umm, detailed but... but...
Dean: But what, Sam?
Sam: There was a mix up at the shop and, oh god, please don't be mad at me Dean. I don't know how...
Dean: Sam, what have you done?
Sam: I'm sorry.
Dean: SAM!!!

'Back in Metallic Purple' just doesn't have the same ring as 'Back in Black', does it? )
