Writer's Block: Hello, World!

What is your earliest memory?
I have 3 memories from when I was 3-years-old:
1) folding laundry with my sister and putting it away in our dresser drawers
2) my sister making coffee in the morning before she went to classes
3) going with my sister to pick up her fiance at his apartment and bring him back to our parents' house for supper.
My sister married and left home in December 1967, so I know these happened before that date, but I don't remember in which order.  (Yes, my sister is quite a bit older than I am.)

Hawaii Five-O quotes that make me happy

sheafrotherdon  has a great post here, soliciting her flist's favorite lines and memories.  I'm making this list, so I'll have my own thoughts in a convenient place.

Steve: I am sincerely sorry. That is what I was trying to tell you, last year, when this conversation started.

Malama Ka Aina
Steve: It's good to meet you Gracie; your daddy talks about you all the time.
Grace: He talks about you a lot, too.

Steve: I like pancakes.
Danny: You do?
Steve: Yeah.
Danny: Seem more like a 'napalm in the morning' kind of guy.
Steve: Well, that, too.
Doctor: Anything traumatic recently?
Danny: Yeah, actually, I got a new partner.
Doctor: I was thinking more of a physical injury.
Danny: No, no, this guy is like a physical injury, Doc.

Steve: There was no surfing accident.  He, ah, he, ah, busted his knee getting out of bed.

Steve: When I say, 'Book 'em, Danno,' it's a term of endearment.
Danny: Ok. Do it every day. I like it.

Danny: You miss me, don’t you?
Steve: Oh yeah, I wish you were here.
Ed: You talking to your wife?
Steve: I’m talking to my partner.

Steve: I know you.

Danny: You have got to start doing a better job picking your friends.
Steve: Tell me about it. I chose you, didn't I?


Adam Lambert

I just want to say, "Yum!"

SGA 5:19 & 5:20

I know these episodes haven't officially aired, yet, but I saw them anyway, and I had to write about them.

I love my new President-elect! From Obama's press conference today (during the Q&A):

"With respect to the dog, this is a major issue. I think it's generated more interest on our Web site than just about anything.

We have two criteria that have to be reconciled. One is that Malia is allergic, so it has to be hypoallergenic. There are a number of breeds that are hypoallergenic. On the other hand, our preference would be to get a shelter dog, but, obviously, a lot of shelter dogs are mutts like me. So whether we're going to be able to balance those two things I think is a pressing issue on the Obama household."

He's such a good sport about the balancing act between choosing Cabinet Secretaries and Pound Puppies.

Ben - Crisco

I've been trolling old Ben Browder interviews, from his Farscape days, and found this fabulous quote about living in Australia: "And I can't find Crisco. You can't make biscuits without Crisco." This immediately put me in mind of  synecdochic 's Broken Wings 'verse Cameron Mitchell, who loves to cook & bake. Check out the series, if you haven't already.

Full interview article posted here.

24 April wikipedia

I've seen this in other people's LJ's and I thought it looked fun.  The deal is you go to wikipedia and search on the month and day of your birth.  What you get is a list of events, births and deaths for that day.  Choose 3 events, 2 births and 1 death that you find interesting or significant and post them to your LJ.  I, of course, can't follow directions, so I have chosen 4 events, 3 births and 3 deaths.

1184 BC - Greeks enter Troy using the Trojan Horse (traditional).
1704 - The first regular newspaper in the United States, the Boston, Massachusetts New-Letter, is published.
1915 - The Armenian Genocide starts with the deportation and murder of the Ottoman Armenian intellectuals.
2005 - Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger is inaugurated as the 265th Pope of the Roman Catholic Church taking the name Pope Benedict XVI.

1905 - Robert Penn Warren, American poet
1934 - Shirley MacLaine, American actress and author
