So, is it just me, or does the new home page just come off as a paid advert for the ONTD! group and it's related journals? cause that's almost all I see on the "top entries" part of the page.




Anyhow.

Why I really made a post... )

As to the subject of my post, I know what the Urban Dictionary says it refers to, but I think of it in more of the endearment form. My grandmother on my mothers side used to use it interchangeably with calling one a rascal or a chatterbox(or a 'pooper').

The other day, I was reminded that I want a copy of the Hunger Games trilogy, so I checked out Amazons price, cause they're trustworthy, and usually have the best, if not almost best price available, for a starting point.

I checked a few other places, but the shipping makes it not worth it, with Amazon's free super shipper savings or whatever its called...

so I cruised over to eBay, and dug around a bit. it seems that someone got hold of a case of the paperback sets, and with the release of the movie this Friday, has unleashed them on the masses at eBay starting at a penny bid. good business practice, considering the first batch jumped to $15 or better within an hour of when I found them.

Here's where my post subject comes in. Most of these lots of the trilogy seem to be selling about 5-10 dollars under the amazon price, so, about even with the cheapest price I could find it outside Amazon/eBay. still a deal, since the person who has this case of book sets is offering free shipping.

But this one set last I flipped through the lots still active, was at $10 over the amazon price.....

and it just made me wonder if some people just don't comparison shop, or are just that loyal to eBay....

Yes there's always been that small part of me that hoped that they'd bring Ianto back. I've always known they wouldn't, but it doesn't mean that little corner of my mind didn't hope.

Today after I finally got around to getting my Audible trial credits sorted, I bought a copy of the Torchwood : The Lost Files set of radio plays. As usual they're good and all, but listening to The House of the Dead, it's been so long since I read reviews on them, that I forgot that one was set after the end of CoE....

I'll try not to spoil it much if you haven't listened to it and wanted to without spoilers, but because I forgot that little tidbit, the end of that...episode I guess you could call it, hit me full force, so now my itchy allergy eyes are sore and puffy from crying, but I'm kinda glad a little that Jack got a bit better closure.

But that little corner of my brain where the small hope that they'd find their loophole to bring Ianto back is screaming at the top of her lungs for the writers to get their asses back here and rewrite it, cause they had their loop hole dammit!

All this on top of seeing that set of the "original" Torchwood I posted about a couple weeks ago has left me feeling a little empty, because now there really is no hope for Torchwood to go back to the way it was.

I knew it all along, but now that the small corner of hope has been crushed its different.

last night I had the weirdest dream that I've had in a long time.

Me, my parents, and siblings, their family, my dads siblings, and all their kids and so on and so forth, gathered at some house, that was familiar, but yet one that I've never been to, so I'm really thinking my brain mashed up pieces of houses I've been in to create a whole new one.

what was odd about it, was that we were all gathering together, to spend time with my grandmother, who'd been gone for just over 16 years.

We were gathering to spend time with her, because she was dying, but in a slow, but not really painful type of way, which would actually match up with the way that she did pass away, of cancer...

I'm not entirely sure what to make of it, and I'm not entirely sure where it came from, its not as if I've been thinking about her recently or anything....

The other part that struck me as odd was that she seemed to be acting very melodramatically to the fact that she didn't have long to live, and was making people do things that she could still have easily done for herself, and things like that, very outside of her character.


As you can see, this is one of those dreams that stuck with me well after waking up, and has stuck with me all day, and will probably hang around in the back of my mind for a few days as well.

and the fact that my neices and nephews seemed to be there as well as my other cousins who's kids are all under the age of 10...the only great grandchild to my grandparents that was around back then was my oldest nephew, who was only about a month or so when my grandmother passed away.

just weird, very very weird.
