Third time changing this entry :)
This WAS a drama filled post about why this journal became friends only but after talking to person in question I realized that I might have jumped the gun so changed it just in case I did. I will stick to my plan to keep journal friends only just in case my open journal entries were adding fuel to a fire. And that's all I'll say on the matter :)
Third time changing this entry :)
It only snows every five years in the South where I live but today it did! Not enough to make a snowman but enough to dust the ground with powder sugar :) I stayed indoors all day and watched Alias episodes as well as played in Second Life. There were treasure hunts to track down and blog entries to catch up on :)
In other news, Singin' In The Rain has come to my town :) The broadway version of my all time favorite musical. The guy who I thought would be in it is directing it so I'm not too sure how great it will be. Some of the pictures weren't promising though the set looks great :) Maybe it's time to break out the old tape and watch it again. I love Donald O'Connor.

I miss you all and send lots of hugs!!
Unfortunately, nothing good to see on TV tonight but hopefully that means I can get some graphic design projects done. Something Martha/Aaron related since I promised the FLOSS girls some icons for awhile now, especially clementine_lime . Good time to fulfill my promise! Now let's get to the music meme that xandra73 tagged me with. Thanks, Xandra!
Well, one of my favorite groups put out a new CD recently but I'm saving it for Christmas so I'll highlight some of their older songs. The group in question is Il Divo and the songs are "Everytime I Look At You" and "The Man You Love". VERY romantic songs and here is how they apply to the Logans. The first one talks about how love changes a man and I think that was true of Charles. He was a better man when Martha was there and he knew it. I love how the singers says "let love be blind" and "I used to think that I was strong...I realize now I was wrong" Falls right into line with how I see his character :)
This last song is so beautiful instrumental wise that I could hear the music alone without any singing. However, the words are lovely as well as they describe a man who just wants to be there for the woman he's in love with. Now we know Charles was not this kind of guy from the start...however, people could change and maybe after he's lost everything he suddenly realizes what he DID have and this changes him into this type of man. One can only hope!

Ok, time to unveil another great 24 website. Many of you are already aware of this site if you're a diehard 24 fan but those of you who don't know about it, here's your chance to find out. I discovered this site while a member of the 24 community and it is really a great place for all things 24. Cute commentaries, great source for promo pictures and the like, regularly updated, and nice layout. Just a great place to share your love for this show and find useful information such as spoilers!!
Great resource+Fun Blogsite=Perfect Place for 24 Fans To Gather!
Sleeping in is a wonderful thing :) Especially when it's cold and the covers are so comfy! This is the start of a FOUR day weekend and I'm going to enjoy every minute of it. So last night I watched Numbers and it was REALLY good about a painting the Nazi's had stolen from a Jewish family and then the patriarch of that family then make a copy so the original would be preserved for generations to come. Quark from Deep Space Nine was on there and did a VERY good job...he should be on 24. What I liked best was the idea of family and how the oldest son wanted to know why they didn't have any religious traditions. It was a very moving episode :)
Most of the day I just sat around being lazy. I caught up on LJ entries...now that I'm a member of fandom icons there are TONS of posts to reply to. Kept me busy for an hour or two. Then I got sucked back into Second Life. There was a sale at one of the shops as the designer is discontinuing some of her clothing lines and hair styles. Therefore I spent a ton of money snagging all the ones I liked...and still have loads more to get. Boy, if I'm not running up a hefty bill over there *sigh* However, the clothes and hair styles are SO nice and I hate to think that they would be gone forever if I don't. Later I went out with my Mom to pick up dry cleaning and...Smallville season 2 & 3 for $15.99 each!!! Normally they are $50 each so this was a bargain that could not be passed up. I also bought some holiday baking goods for December at Aldi's. Boy do I love their prices :) Then Mom and I jived at home to the tunes of Tony Bennet's CD: Duets. Man, they don't make music like that anymore!
Too bad the icons on the left and right are too large to use here :(
If I had to choose what kind of candy I would be, then I would say I was an Oreo cookie: Creamy inside but tough cookie outside :)
I want to thank you, Aaron...for being the man my husband couldn't be...for being the man I wanted him to be.
Eeeeek!! I forgot the most important thing!!! Some sweet sweet SWEET person was nice enough to anonymously pay for my account time here on LJ and whoever you are I just want to acknowledge the wonderful gesture for what it was: an unexpected ray of sunshine! You didn't have to!! But the fact that you took the time (and money) to do this brought a smile to my face and added a little bit of magic to an otherwise perfectly normal day. Thank you once again, secret Santa! I have my eye out for you *wink*
_ila_and she assigned me with the letter N. Now I must find songs that begin with said letter and of course you know how I will choose these songs. *evil cackle* Unfortunately, I'm not very good with any of the upload sites (just at downloading :P) so the names of the songs will be displayed with the artist next to it if you want to find these songs. Sorry about that :)
Ok, I'm breaking the schedule again *hears a collective gasp* Yep, something in another journal caught my eye and I must follow suit. This was found in the journal of the lovely

Well that's it for now, stay tuned for the next episode of "A Day In The Life" *giggles*

Quick little snippet about things happening right now. I got up at 4 AM. Yes FOUR!! It wasn't even light out to go shopping on this wonderful day of days. So many things to buy so little time before work. I don't know how I got through the day with only 5 hours sleep. The lines were amazingly long for this time of year, especially at Best Buy where it snaked around the middle of the store all the way around in a circle. Target wasn't that great either. Circuit City better because more registers open and scattered throughout the store. Word of advice if you decide to shop Black Friday: go to the department that sees the least action that day and you'll find shorter lines (for example, the car radio section at Circuit City). In the end, I came home with a bucketload of games, DVD's and a PSP. Is this a great country or what? And my Amazon package came in with the COMPLETE collection of Alias DVD's. All shiny and new in its cute box! I love the holidays!
Ok, first a little commentary on spiritual matters. I adore our praise and worship on Friday Nights. It's a chance to kick back and just have fun. I've never danced at a club but I have just as much fun dancing in church. It's so refreshing to really feel what the songs are saying and just let it all go. Anyways, first we did the fast songs and it was fun doing alot of spins and leaps. Normal stuff really but then our worship team did the slow songs and oh my gosh it was wonderful. I just wanted to stay all night in that wonderful presence. Awesome awesome stuff. And my brother drove me there and was nice enough to wait on me. Sole thing I need to focus on is getting back on track with God by developing that personal relationship but events like all night worship and ladies prayer meeting help in a BIG way. Can't wait for tomorrow's worship!
Now on to less serious but nonetheless fun things...like TV shows *giggles*
And now...the moment we've all been waiting for...ok, I've been waiting for :) Discussion of the AMAZING new Bond film!
Well, today is Saturday so time to put some graphics on display and I have the perfect piece by cnnjunky.
Ask me for a direct link to her post by commenting here if you want to use this wallpaper! And can't end an entry without adding the usual screenshot from Season Five of either Martha or Charles. Let's just hope he looks this good when Season Six swings around *sends up prayers to TPTB*
( Brothers and Sisters *squeeees*, Heroes *double squeee*, and CSI: Miami... )
Aaaah the sweetness of love in the Air. Shakespeare is my favorite poem of all time so I was really excited when this poem came next on my list. If you've had British literature, then you're VERY familiar with this poem. I particularly love the line "but thy eternal summer shall not fade" because Martha most certainly shares many characteristics of a summer day...warm, inviting, and beautiful :) Maybe if Charles had quoted more poetry,they would have had a stronger marriage *wink*

And so dear friends, I leave you with this parting screencap of 24 Season Five in hopes Season Six will hurry its butt up and get here *grin*

And since it's Saturday, time to reveal some Martha/Charles graphics. I'm still experimenting with Paintshop and Photoshop so I'll display three banners a wonderful person named The24UmKing at the 24 Insider board made on request. I really like the different shots used in each one :)
And that's all for today. Will be back with more musings on Monday *wink*

Well the blues of yesterday have disappeared as I refocus on what I love to do most: writing, internet surfing and graphic design. Putting aside what someone said to me yesterday I am determined to focus on what I think is important. If they don't like it, fine! Let them deal with their own issues. As for me, I'm going to revel in this current obsession of mine till something better comes along :) For everyone who has been understanding of this fandom, I thank you. Your withholding of criticism has been GREATLY appreciated :) More than you know!
So today I will be promoting the 24 forums at the Television Without Pity website. There are four main subforums: 24 General Gabbery, Kiefer and Kompany, Terrorists, Targets and Kollateral Damage, and 24 Kreative Efforts. The first has a ton of threads on everything about the show from what the actors are doing now to spoilers for next season to reflections on all seasons. The second has threads devoted to key players in the 24 universe while the third covers everyone else. My favorite is the last forum because it has threads discussing fan fiction, forum games, and other creative ideas. Right now the boards are little quiet due to the show's hiatus but they pick up speed as soon as January begins. Check them out if you have time.

And that's all, folks!
Well enough about me and more about Charles and Martha. I did it again. Filled out a blog quiz for our couple. Enjoy the results!
RESULTS FOR MARTHA LOGAN
|Your Love Life Secrets Are|
Looking back on your life, you will only have one true love.
You've been deeply wounded in the past, and you're still recovering from that hurt.
You prefer a quirky, unique person to be your lover. You're easy going about who you're with, as long as they love you back.
In fights, you speak your mind and don't hold back. You know you're right, and you can get quite angry about it.
A break-up usually comes as a shock to you. You always think things are going well.
If you want the results that came up for me, you'll just have to keep waiting because that's private *wink*
What is going on! Someone please tell me!
