Christmas: tv addict style

It's nearing Christmas, so everything in my life has to be soaked in holiday cheer. Including my tv choices. Sure we own like 15 Christmas movies, but when you want to surround yourself 24/7 with Christmas, you need a few more options. Which is why tv shows have Christmas episodes. Yup.

Lexmas, Smallville. And so, my massive soft spot for Lex/Lana comes out. I still firmly believe that this beautiful, sparkling, Christmassy world exists in some alternate time-line. This may be my favorite Christmas episode of any tv show. Their kids were adorable of course, and it was just so sad! Lex should always be a middle-class dad.

The Man in the Fallout Shelter, Bones. My bff and I had a Bones/Life watch off because we are competitive and crazy, and this was one of the episodes she had me watch. It was all full of Christmas Spirit, the music was awesome, Angela was hysterical. And the case was sad in a good way.

The Christmas Invasion, Doctor Who. Our first look at David Tennant as The Doctor, and he's rude and not ginger! Pretty much, on Doctor Who, London gets destroyed every Christmas. I would think they would have given up re-building, no? It's a fun episode, and has much holiday cheer, and Harriett Jones is in it.

iChristmas, iCarly. So it's just another stereotypical, run-of-the-mill, It's A Wonderful Life parody. But I love anything that has to do with Spencer's utter lack of judgment, and it just makes me really happy. Also, he's a lawyer, duh! And Sam in prison was an odd, yet truthful touch.

How the Ghosts Stole Christmas, X-Files. Mulder catches wind of a ghosts story and wants to investigate. On Christmas Eve. Scully begrudgingly comes along. Exciting things happen, they almost die, and it ends with Christmas morning in Mulder's apartment. But we never find out what they bought each other.

Black Friday, Life. Black Friday begins the holiday season. There are Santas and elves and a dead guy in a Christmas display. Yet absolutely no Christmas cheer, in an ironic way. And Charlie buys Dani sunglasses and Tidwell buys her a fish, and she doesn't appreciate either one. And by Tuesday, I could be saying this to you in Dutch.

The Constant, LOST. This episode has very little to do with Christmas actually. But it takes place on Christmas Eve, and there's a Christmas tree and it's just the best episode of LOST ever. Romantic and perfect. Only the time travel really doesn't hold with the rest of the season(s), but I can overlook the weak sci-fi for the sake of Desmond's happiness.

Come on people, get your Christmas grooves on! Also tonight I watched a Pushing Daisies episode (which has nothing to do with Christmas), and it made me happy. My hot chocolate made me happy too.

Unnatural Hair Colors

I respect my hair follicles, so honestly I'd never bleach/dye my hair. I'm rather fond of my natural caramel hair color, and I'd be a bit afraid that doing something to it would ruin it forever. But people with unnatural hair colors can be so exciting!

Bleach blonde! Which is pretty scary, in an awesome way.

I wanted (still really want) pink hair. But more like streaks over my natural blonde.

My friend Kelly wanted aqua tips for the longest time.

Red streaks, but not like a crazy red.

Rainbow hair. And she has the same Target pj's as my sister.

Have a happy Saturday-after-thanksgiving.

BUSTLES. Fashion's weirdest creation to date. I think they were supposed to be sexy or something.

This is like a wedding dress with a bustle. Surprisingly, lots of wedding dresses still have them.

This is what they look like underneath.

Late Victorian people loved them.

I think that sitting in these would have been crazy uncomfortable.

These are really funny bustle pads.

Bustles do look really cool with corsets though. I mean, sure they are unnecessary and uncomfortable and WEIRD. But they can be pretty.

Okay, happy Black Friday! I didn't shop though. I hung around the house and grazed the fridge all day.

Calvin and Hobbes

Disclaimer: This post does not have a thing to do with Thanksgiving. But Calvin and Hobbes are pretty epic. We own four very beautiful Calvin books, which I always pull out when it starts getting cold/snowy/holidayish.

Most people I know live by this one.

Calvin and Hobbes fanart! Future!Calvin is awesome.

Oh Hobbes, please be my fwend!

And his dad is just the best!

Ah, and then there is Susie, who is the only person who can beat Calvin at his own game. She may be a mild-mannered girl-next-door on the outside, but she is a schemer worthy of Calvin friendship.

Calvin and Hobbes: Classic American entertainment.

Holidays: Snowflakes

Today was Christmassy and awesome. We went to the Milleridge Inn and Ikea and Target. And I wore a very pretty shirt. Which has nothing to do with Christmas, but whatever.

Have a great Thanksgiving hons!

Lois and the Legion Ring (a pseuto-picspam)

Yay Smallville! (No one cares) I know! But I don't care what you care about! Really though this is an excuses to be sarcastic, which is just a bad excuses for wit. And no, this big ol' post won't make any sense if you haven't seen the episodes. Multiple timeliness are involved and much plot which I plan on not getting into here.
*Warning: This picspam is rated PG13 for intense
and attractive images of Callum Blue*

"Dude, Clark, we lost Lois."
Yeah Oliver, you never were very good at keeping track of her.

Meanwhile, in another part of town...

"Hack into her brain minion."
Lighten up Tess.

*Flash to the future which happened three weeks ago.*
"You will tell me everything about you like how you got here and other things."
Kandorian obviously like knowing stuff.

"Oh my Zod, help?"
Welcome to the future Lois. It's a dark place indeed.

"I'll help you. Dude, it's like, what I do. Let me enlighten you to our current situation."
Pull yourself together Clark.

Um... yeah.

*Flash to the present*
"Chloe where did you put her!?"
Question: Since when has Clark's mind not immediately jumped to Luthorcorp? It's like in Harry Potter when in every single book it just "has to be Snape and Malfoy because!"

"Blasphemy! I'm your bff Clark! And don't go saying you fired me from that position too. Btw, it was Tess."
Way to keep your cool.

*Flash to the future which happened three weeks ago.*
"I'm Zod. You may have heard of me. Sexy Kandorian with an out of place British accent? I'm your new dictator."
Oh Zod, you can steal my truffles and yell in my face anyday.

"Crap he stole the magic ring."
Course he did Lois, he's Zod!

"Rise Tess. Comrade and partner in crimes. "
Oh she's digging this.

"He likes me, he really does! Also now we can save the coral reefs!"
Seriously Tess, all this to save the fish?

"Thawk. Bam. Boom. Kapow. Battle noises."
Plot happens.

"Some one had to save the fishies."
Actually, this was really sad. So I'm not going to mock it.

"Cries for a long time."
Oliver, you should have loved her when you had the chance. She dumped you for Evil and now look what happened?

*Flash to the present*
"Dude, I DIE at the end of this story? Are you kidding me??!"
Repent now Mercy. Go back to Ollie before it's too late.

*Flash to the future which happened three weeks ago.*
"Impromptu Justice League meeting, 'kay Clark?"
Stop fighting kids, sheesh. And Oliver? Pouting was so last season.

"Oh my freakin' Zod, Lois, I love you."
Then they mack it out.

"Mutual I'm sure."
Avert your eyes young ones.

"Death is upon me."
They try to save the world, blah, blah, blah.

"Haha. I'm Zod, I'm still cooler then you. To prove it I'm going to drag you in circles."
Okay Zod, way to show off.

"Yo, Lois! I'm dying here! Do something!"
She does.

*Flash to the present*
"Scientific nonsense"
Just stop talking Emil. They don't understand you.

"Tra la, you're kinda cute."
Fact: Lois Lane really likes donuts.

"Wow I had my mind wiped and I'm going steady, all in one day!"
Only this will never work.

"I predict dark things in our future. Like death. Mayhem."
That Chole is sharp as a tack.

"Zod! Zod! Zod! Now shut up and bow!"
Oh, Callum Blue, never change.

Lol omg this is even longer then the last one I have NO self control.
Also please excuse crappy screencaps.
