Thurdsay 13 Supernatural quotes


Thirteen quotes from SUPERNATURAL



For those of you who don't watch this show, you should give it a shot. Supernatural is such a well written, well acted show, and is a breath of fresh air among the dozens of crime and medical dramas on out there. If you were a fan of Buffy/Angel/Charmed and are looking for some awesome paranormal entertainment, Supernatural is worth checking out. (plus...2 hot guys...) I thought I'd scrounge up some quotes from the show for this weeks TT since new episodes start up again tonight.



1. From the pilot episode
Sam: Dude, you gotta update your cassette tape collection.
Dean: Why?
Sam: Well for one they are cassette tapes. And two, Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Metallica... its the greatest hits of mullet rock.
Dean: House rules, Sammy, driver picks the music, shotgun shuts his cake hole.
Sam: Sammy is a chubby 12 year old. It's Sam okay.
Dean: Sorry cant hear you. The music's too loud.

2. From "Wendigo"
Haley: You're rangers?
Dean: That's right
Haley: And you're hiking out in biker boots and jeans?
Dean: Oh, sweetheart, I don't do shorts

3. From "Dead in the Water"
Andrea: (to Dean) Must be hard, with your sense of direction, never being able to find your way to a decent pick-up line

4. From "Skin" which, BTW was directed by Robert Duncan McNeill who was Tom Paris in Star Trek Voyager
Dean: I really wish things could be different, you know, I wish you could just be Joe College.
Sam: Nah, that's okay. You know, truth is, even at Stanford, deep down, I never really fit in.
Dean: Well, that's cuz you're a freak.
Sam: Yeah, thanks.
Dean: Well I'm a freak, too. I'm right there with you, all the way.

5. From "Hook Man"
Dean: I told him you were a dumbass pledge and that we were hazing you.
Sam: What about the shotgun?
Dean: I said that you were hunting ghosts and spirits were repelled by rock salt. You know, typical Hell Week prank.
Sam: And he believed you?
Dean: Well you look like a dumbass pledge.

6. From "Hook Man"
(at a frat party)
Dean: Man, you've been holding out on me, this college thing is awesome!
Sam: This wasn't really my experience.
Dean: Let me guess - libraries, studying, straight A's.
(Sam nods)
Dean: What a geek.

7. From "Bugs"
Sam: Well, Dad never treated you like that, you were perfect. He was all over my case. You don't remember?
Dean: Well, maybe he had to raise his voice, but sometimes you were out of line.
Sam: Right! Right, like when I said I'd rather play soccer than learn bow hunting.
Dean: Bow hunting's an important skill!

8. From "Home"
Dean: Listen, Jenny, it's important, Ow!
(Missouri hits him on the back of the head)
Missouri: Give the poor girl a break, can't you see she's upset. (to Jenny) forgive this boy - he means well, he's just not the sharpest tool in the shed.

9. From "Simon Said"
Sam: The demon said he had plans for me, and children like me.
Dean: Ya...?
Sam: Maybe this is the plan. Maybe we’re all a bunch of psychic freaks. Maybe we’re all supposed to be...
Dean: What, killers? (off Sam’s look) Gimme a break. You’re not a murderer, Sam.
Sam: No? Last time I checked, I kill all kinds of things

10. From "The Usual Suspects"
Sam: I needed some time off. To deal. So, I'm taking a road trip with my brother.
Ballard: How's that going for you?
Sam: Great. I mean, we saw the second largest ball of twine in the continental U.S. Awesome.

11. From "The Usual Suspects" Dean is being interogated by the police
Sheridan: Talk directly into the camera, start by stating your name for the record.
Dean: My name is Dean Winchester. I’m an Aquarius, I enjoy sunsets, long walks on the beach, and frisky women.

12. From "Hunted" This one had half a dozen good quotes and it was soooo hard to pick
Sam: These are .223 Caliber, subsonic rounds, the guy must've put a suppressor on the rifle.
Ava: Dude, who are you?
Sam: I ah...I just I...I just watch a lot of TJ Hooker.

12: From "Hunted"
Dean: What’s the point of saving the world if you can’t get a little nookie once in a while, huh?

Thirteen cool things about AppleTV


My brother sent me the new AppleTV for my birthday and though I need to get a new airport card, I was just so excited I thought I'd do my TT on how awesome this new toy is.

1. It has the the potential to radically increase my couch potato skills...300 movies, a bunch of TV show seasons all available without having to do more than push a button...wait this one might not be good

2. no more getting up to hunt for a movie on the DVD shelf, just push the buttong and scroll through the menu. Sometimes it takes me ages to find a movie, only to find it under the couch or up in the kids room...or DH leant it to someone at work and forgot to get it back.

3. It's shiny and purty and new

4. The remote is tiny and doesn't have a million buttons

5. The itunes store has shows I love but can't get the newest episodes of. Example Stargate Atlantis season 3 only airs on a movie channel up here in canada that I've ever seen and it would cost way too much money to get the movie package on our satelite just for one show so DH says no way

6. it's wireless, so I don't have cables running all over the place that the bunny can chew or the kids can trip on

7. I can actually say I'm using th HDMI input on the TV which DH didn't think was worth paying extra for...HA!

8. Storing movies on a hard drive takes up WAY less space than 300 DVDs

9. It's a new toy...I love new toys and apple makes the coolest toys around

10. It's super easy to have a movie marathon and not have to get off the couch to switch movies.

11. by storing the kids movies on the computer, I don't have to get upset when they've totally scratched the disk...or snapped it *sigh*

12. it was an excuse to rip all our movies, and now I can put them on the ipod for the kids to watch on car trips...oh wait...no way I'm letting them touch my ipod...

13. someday itunes will have episodes of shows like Star Trek Voyager which, hopefully will be cheaper than buying the DVDs for 140 bucks a season...and I'll still be able to watch them on the TV without burning a bunch of DVD-Rs...which is good since i don't have a DVD burner in this puter.

Past Lies by Kim Rees



The lies were no protection. Not anymore…

Anna Shrewsbury is trapped.

The whims of her sister control her life. She wants to be free…and she thought her brother-in-law had helped her find freedom with his last act. But instead, she seems to be the butt of one of his infamous jokes.

She now has a half share in a company she doesn’t want, while her childhood home and her promised sanctuary is bequeathed to a man who hates her. And then there’s the deal. She has to live a week with him. A whole week with Zachary Quinn.

For six years, a shield of lies has protected Anna. But in beginning a new life, she must break away from those lies. Be prepared to face Zach’s fury. And his passion…

Catching up

Whew! Its been a nutty few weeks. We ran out of water and decided we weren't going to keep doing the cistern thing so we hunted around for quotes to get someone to hook us up to town water...turns out it's way cheaper to do it ourselves, and not as hard as we thought. So we rented a little back-ho and dug the trench (and two of our neighbors as well) and hopefully we'll have lovely, clean non-dead-mousy-water. (Yep, we found dead mice floating in the cistern which is what prompted this whole fiasco. Gross gross gross.)

I've also joined two new group blogs. Paranormal romance, and Fantasy. I'll put the links in the side bar. There are some awesome authors at these blogs, so I'm really excited to be a part of them. Also, the Daughters of Circe blog is up and running, I've updated the Daughters website with some beautiful new covers and new sales, and some other stuff. There will be a new contest running in the next few days.

Other than that, I've been aching to try out my new AppleTV. I just have to wait on the new base station for wireless networking then I can veg and not have to move for days. (until Aline comes down from the frozen north to whap me with a fish) I've been renting the season one disks of Supernatural (LOVE LOVE LOVE that show! Definately one of the coolest, most original shows on TV that deserves WAY more attention than it is getting) The hubby has cut off my spending on TV box sets until I get writing more, but I just couldn't wait to see season one. If you haven't seen this show, definately check it out. New episodes start airing on April 19th, unfortunately at the same time as CSI and Grey's Anatomy...but you can usually catch it other nights of the week too (especially in Canada hehehe)

K, back to writing...Happy Easter
