        Lately, I have been watching House Hunters and other type shows and devising in my head a good drinking game. They all want "open concept" space for "entertaining" and an "en suite" master and a large yard. Bonus points for "character" and "updated".

          Well no more fire and all the buildings were still standing when I left. Just had to deal with the smell of burnt popcorn all day.

          Did you not say it is played on ice, O'Neill?

            Hi you. Came back for the important discussion I see. Heh.

            My parents' house has popcorn ceilings. OMG. Don't ever try to paint one of those. Very common in the 70s.

              Ewww. One of the saddest and most nose-crinkling smells in the world. All that ruined popcorn.

              Ugh, the 70s had such awful design features. Avocado green shag carpets, anyone?

                At the Maldron Hotel at Dublin Airport... Flight home leaves at 6:40 tomorrow morning. Have to get up around 4am-ish... that's going to be painful.

                But I just found a leaflet about a Game of Thrones tour to the setting that serves as Winterfell. Must keep that safe for next time I return here.

                  Still trying to forget about that horrid smell.

                  On top of that people had to remind me that since the back wall had blown out as well, I could have been dodging shrapnel if the blast had gone a different direction.

                  Please tell me your joking about the bolded part, SK. Not sure I could handle seeing that in a house.

                    Oh young one, sadly she is not joking. And we had appliances to match. Or you could choose harvest gold appliances and do up your place with orange or red accents. In our first house on the Marine base, Mr. SR and I had the green shag rug, a green couch, orange/yellow plaid chairs and orange curtains. After you vacuumed the rug, you had to rake it with a special rake to make the fibers all stand up. Good times. I wonder what happened to my rake.

                      Yup, my parents' first house had that stuff in it when they bought it. Needless to say, they ripped it out ASAP to find some lovely hardwood floors underneath. We still had a few scraps of the carpet for a while to cushion heavy stuff out in the garage, and Mom and Dad still tell horror stories about how hideous that stuff was.

                      Good thing the Ancients never had such awful interior decorating sense, eh? Can you just imagine trying to rip out shag carpet for an entire city the size of Manhattan? Yikes!

                        And add that one extra hour you loose cause of time differences. I don't think it'll be very late tonight for me.

                        Oh, I don't think that will be a problem seeing we'll probably return somewhere around April 2015. Summer will most likely be spend in the UK again, and Roumania. But april's still wide open.

                        They would hire a carpet-ripping team -- or those who misbehave will get send to do carpet-ripping time.

                          Oh my goodness, it's my con buddy Irish Eyes! I've missed you!!!!!!!!

                          And I will admit that my den (that was a converted garage in the early 80's) still has a popcorn ceiling.

                          This house was my parent's house that they bought in 1955. You can tell what decade each room was decorated by the colors. I just haven't had the ambition to fix up all the stuff. While it is really great to get a house that is all paid off, there's the history of 8 different people who lived in this house (grandma, mom, dad, aunt, 3 siblings, and me). There's stuff from all of them in various corners of this house. It's frankly overwhelming to try to redo anything.

                            Hey ya

                            So good to be here again!
                            I came just to share a little moment of joy I had yesterday, while having my SGA fix on Youtube :
                            On the "Related" column, among all the sparky vids, I noticed an old favorite called "Big Iron" (a Shep/Kolya vid). I was like "huh? what it's doing in here, since it's not sparky?" and for the first time I noticed that the author is "southernred" (although I've seen the vid lots of times!)
                            You can bet that I've got instantly bright eyes / bushy tail and start digging through her vids (I just hope it's our Southern Red !)
                            I liked all of them, because all of them told heartfelt stories with some beautiful pieces of music in the background (and god knows how many sparky vids I wasn't able to finish just because i didn't liked the music) but three of them really stood out for me (along with the after-mentioned Big Iron):
                            - "Night Owl" - the story was great and cohesive and matched perfectly the song (a song I didn't hear before, but I'm loving it now) - I really loved how that F302 was "waltzing" in the sky!
                            - "I Will Dream": that song was really a grower for me, and once I got pass the cheesy lyrics I saw the true sadness of the story; it hit me real hard
                            - "Bad Year In Pegasus Galaxy": wow! what a great rhythm! this vid grabs you and not let you go until you see it again and again..

                            So, for the last two days I played that clips on repeat and can't get enough.
                            If these are yours, SR, all my praises for you - those are the work of an artist, not just pictures put together on music

                              Boy am I glad I was born at the end of the 70's. Seeing a house like you and SK have mentioned might make my eyes bleed.

                              I know. Still don't want to think about it.

                              Could you imagine Elizabeth using that as a punishment. Wonder how many towers Kavanaugh would of had to tackle by himself.

                                Hey folks, would like to ask your honest opinion about something:

                                Had Atlantis survived in the Pegasus Galaxy, had Elizabeth survived, do you think she and John could have really sustained a relationship? She's the boss and he's a subordinate and even though there are technically no rules against it, they are required to work together under very stressful conditions. In a similar real-life situation, most would say it's an extraordinarily bad idea. Things could go south very quickly if the relationship soured.

                                So taking away your ship-colored glasses for a few moments, what do you think?
                                (I wanted to answer to this back then, but I couldn't find enough time/energy to do it; and, anyway, many posters already expressed my thoughts, and using a better English).
                                Now I have time and will to post, so my opinion is: no (at least not in that environment)
                                I doubt that any of them would have made the first step and declare their feelings, despite being extremely attracted of each other. He wouldn't dare to dream that a woman like her (a women involved in high politics and a true lady) could love him, and she couldn't afford to show any weakness for anyone of her team (and thus having her motives and reasons questioned)
                                IMO, the "lady and the tramp" story (as I like to label their ship) works great if the two of them are taken out of the establishment. Put them in an unfamiliar environment, where the old restraints disappear and they have to rely on each other, and you have ignited "the bomb".

                                (*cries for Liz ; and for SGA*
                                Last weeks I perused the thread in a masochistic attempt to see the shippers reactions to her departure..
                                Boy, that was hard to read..)

                                But I found also great great stuff. Like the pages around the Valentine Day 2011, where we see how do we know that Shep and Kolya are in love and Shep had all kind of weird motives for his actions (wanting Niam's hair, for example)
