How do I compete?
How do I compete? After my last termination around 10 years ago, I fell into a personal great depression. Even now there are days where I just want to cry. I do not have any relatives or friends who could help me find work. I don’t have a face to face network of any kind. All of my friends are anonymous online chatters, and even they only think about me when I am online. When I am not...
My 2013 New Year's resolution
On December 31, 2012 I made a snap decision on what I wanted to accomplish on a daily basis in the New Year when I decided I wanted to have a cleared counter top and a clean sink before January 1, 2013. So, each evening or night before midnight, I go into my kitchen and load the dishwasher and clear the counters from the day’s food and drink. It may sound like such a small thing to do, but...
My life on the internet started humbly.
(I apologize in advance, this is disjointed. I have been writing it in stages throughout the evening. I think it has morphed away from what it was originally intended to convey and has turned into a bit of a rant. If I missed anything, c’est la vie.) My first foray onto the internet was not through the World Wide Web (WWW), which was once known as the Information Super Highway. No, I...
So you want to save your favorite TV series.
I have seen a lot of groups popping up to save their favorite cancelled television series. I wonder if those that are pushing for the series to be saved know just how hard it would be to bring them back. So, if you want to save your favorite television series, here are a few things you need to address. Sets are probably the biggest hurdle to bringing a cancelled series back to life. The closer to...
I don't like Facebook
Over a year ago I had a Facebook account and was building a nice little community of friends there. I was having a good time chatting with my friends, playing with the various modules I could add to make my profile more informative, and more. One day something went wrong, so I reported the problem to them. The next day I could not log into my account without any warning. I contacted them to find...
Coming back home from the past is not as easy as...
Whenever you make a decision, the option you did not choose spins off a parallel universe. The more options there are the more parallel universes will be created. Now you might be wondering what that has to do with time travel and coming back home from the past. Since there are uncounted decisions being made across the universe every nanosecond, are you sure the home you came back to is the right...
A few writing tips
I am currently proofreading something written by a friend on Twitter, and I have come up with a few writing tips for him and will now share them with you. The first thing you should do is to at least mouth the words you have written to make sure that they flow when or if what you have written is read aloud. You do not have to use your vocal cords, but sometimes the best way to find flaws is to...
Dear Big Media Companies: It is not up to the...
Dear Big Media Companies: It is not up to the taxpayers to protect your copyrights, trademarks, and patents; it is yours. You are responsible for hiring your own investigators and lawyers to take on those pirating your material. If you are unwilling to take responsibility for protecting and pay the price to protect your copyrights, trademarks, and patents; why should the taxpayers care? The...
My Twitter lists
To those who have Twitter accounts and like any of the series listed below, please subscribe to the applicable lists. You will need to be on a desktop computer using a web browser to subscribe, as Twitter does not allow for lists on mobile devices. Also, if you subscribe to a list, you will get followed by the account it is attached to with some exceptions. Have a nice day and thank you. The...
When you should turn the music down
A conversation with my favorite tiara maker manthamac got me thinking on the most polite times to turn the music down that you have been blaring all day. The first thing you have to look at is your environment. If you live in apartment (flat), a townhouse (row house), or a duplex you have to be especially careful to not annoy your neighbors. If you live in a single family home, you can be a...
CL+O+K+B, a complicated crossover cosmology
If you liked Crossing Jordan you probably already know that it crossed over with Las Vegas. Crossing Jordan “What Happens in Vegas Dies in Boston” continued in Las Vegas “Two of a Kind”. Crossing Jordan “Luck Be a Lady” continued in Las Vegas “Double Down, Triple Threat”. There were episodes of each series which had appearances by characters from the...
Who are you? (Create your internet identity)
Hello. I am Lady Aleena, Lady_Aleena, LadyAleena, or ladyaleena; LA for short. I sometimes use O or Olara as a “last name” filler. You can find me on a lot of websites very easily by just searching for me. Actually, I have a lot of them linked in my description of this blog. However, a Google search will also show you where I can be found, here let me Google that for you. There are...
I feel kind of left out of this whole reblogging thing. I do not have any images to post that relate to any of my fandoms. The only time I was ever reblogged was when I posted images of rainbows from my back yard. I wish I had images that I could share, however, I do not. I hope you all are at least enjoying my posts here. Have a wonderful day!
I may have saved a life tonight with my lighter.
I was out grocery shopping for the past couple of hours. While I was pulling out from the Wegman’s parking lot, I had a near collision with another car because I did not see the car coming. Why you may ask? Well, the driver had not turned on the car’s lights. The first thing I tried was to put my lighter out of my window and flick it a few times to maybe get the driver’s...
ETM, an old crossover cosmology
Some may not be aware that a few years ago ER, Third Watch, and Medical Investigation on NBC created a crossover cosmology. The first crossover was between ER and Third Watch. ER “Brothers and Sisters” ended in Third Watch “Unleashed”. Doctor Susan Lewis of ER and Detective Faith Yokas of Third Watch crossed between series. The second crossover was between Third Watch...
So, you want me to follow you on Twitter.
I am very close to the 500 cut off point when autocomplete will not work for those I’ve been following the longest. Once I reach 500, I will not follow anyone else. To follow someone new would mean I would have to stop following someone else. I know being picky about who I follow can lose me followers, however, I do not just follow anyone who follows me. I am more likely to follow someone...
When I quit smoking. (Everyone please read.)
When I decide to quit smoking, I will need something to help take my mind off of my lack of cigarettes. With Twitter being one of the only places where I can type almost whatever I want, I may use it to keep my mind and hands busy and off of my desire to smoke a cigarette. However, this could mean that I will send out a tweet storm on Twitter and maybe a blog storm here on tumblr. I am thinking...
Let's have some fun with Apocalypses?
I think there are only 2 creature apocalypses that @Syfy could do next, Robot Apocalypse & Dinosaur Apocalypse. Then sell an Apocalypse set. I tweeted the above a few hours ago which Syfy retweeted. I got a lot of responses and retweets which made things fun for me. I would like to share some of their ideas for new Apocalypse films. Syfy has already done Alien Apocalypse and now Zombie...
My favorite television series
I was asked for a list of my favorite television series; however the list is rather long. I grouped them by network and listed their twitter accounts if available. I’ve listed related movies with some of the television series. Anything I own on DVD is in bold (if incomplete, the seasons will be in parentheses). ABC @ABC American’s Funniest Home Videos @AFVofficial Battlestar...
Give Chuck a break please?
I have been a fan of Chuck starring Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski, and Adam Baldwin since the pilot aired in 2007. After each season I would scan the internet to see if the show would return the following year, hoping for renewal yet fearing cancellation. Chuck had some really bad luck in it’s very first season with the writer’s strike. It took a fan getting everyone who loved Chuck...
Why I want more scripted television to watch
I watch television to escape the day to day drudgery of my life. I want to see spectacular lives in amazing situations. That is why I drift more towards science fiction and fantasy than anything else. I am almost equally passionate about scripted and reality television series. The difference is my passion for scripted is positive while my passion for reality is negative. When a reality series...

Why I can not watch Terra Nova.
First and foremost, I believe that before we humans go to another planet or even the Moon, we have to clean this one up first. We shouldn’t take our physical and social diseases anywhere. We need to make sure that our planet here is clean of anything that would make us unworthy to step out into the stars. Right now, we are not worthy of leaving our home planet. We still have poverty, famine,...
Why I am for gay marriage and polygamy
Why is a there a debate on gay marriage, and why is polygamy sensationalized. I believe that marriage and a free society can not exist together, but if marriage is to continue to be included in our society, any consenting adult should be able to marry any other consenting adult as long as there is enough of a biological difference between them. A consenting adult is anyone 18 years old or older...
