Today’s inane conversation with my Japanese girlfriend:
As we pulled into the underground parkade…
Akemi: That looks like zombie car (indicating an old, tarp-covered sedan).
Joe: What’s a zombie car?
Akemi: A car that zombie hide in so it can eat people. (Obviously).
Joe: What do you mean? They drive around offering lifts to people and then when someone gets in the car with them, they eat them?
Akemi: Of course not. Zombie’s don’t drive. They walk ten kilometers every day. That’s why so thin. Try to be healthy I guess.
Joe: Also, their eating habits. They’re on the paleo diet.
Akemi: Like Ivon. Just fresh meat.
Joe: No processed foods.
Akemi: What about sugar?
Joe: No sugar either.
Akemi: That’s tough.
That’s the price of looking so good.
Bubba is practically back to his old self. Akemi lent him her hair band to ensure he doesn’t scratch at his stitches. Very stylish. And he seems to like it!
Continuing our Stargate: Atlantis re-watchwith…Identity!
Ah, now this is one of those instances where past Stargate-watching experience paid off. The second Neeva looks in the mirror and sees Keller’s reflection staring back at her, Akemi shouted: “The communications stones!”. And then she was onboard for the rest of the fast-paced episode.
When Neeva comes across the framed picture of Jennifer and her father: “What the f*ck! Carl Binder is Jewel’s dad!”
When Ronon Shoots Neeva, saving McKay in the puddle jumper: “Heh heh.” Much excitement here.
On the gorgeous establisher of the city at night: “Wow. Beautiful.”
As the magistrate delivers Keller’s death sentence: “Why accent?” And, later, when he is overseeing her execution: “Why British people so evil?”
After Neeva outruns the Atlantis team in the forest and Ronon loses her: “But he is runner! Not as good as Mike Dopud I guess.”
Although she didn’t like Keller’s outfit in Brainstorm, she had high praise for the one she wore in this outfit (actually Neeva’s): “I don’t know if it’s efficient, but very nice. I like a lot.”
During the McKay and Keller moment at episode’s end: “Love. I feel like I’m watching Disney movie!” ???
