Sheppard-happy hour

New Year's Superstitions ...

And when I read this, all I could think of was... Stargate Atlantis...

First Footing: The first person to enter your home after the stroke of midnight will influence the year you're about to have. Ideally, he should be dark-haired, tall, and good-looking, and it would be even better if he came bearing certain small gifts such as a lump of coal, a silver coin, a bit of bread, a sprig of evergreen, and some salt. Blonde and redhead first footers bring bad luck, and female first footers should be shooed away before they bring disaster down on the household. Aim a gun at them if you have to, but don't let them near your door before a man crosses the threshold.

The first footer (sometimes called the "Lucky Bird") should knock and be let in rather than unceremoniously use a key, even if he is one of the householders. After greeting those in the house and dropping off whatever small tokens of luck he has brought with him, he should make his way through the house and leave by a different door than the one through which he entered. No one should leave the premises before the first footer arrives — the first traffic across the threshold must be headed in rather than striking out.


Wow, hmm, dark-haired, tall, and good-looking. John Sheppard!!! :)



He's currently thinking of what gift to bring me. I'm hoping it's a snow blower! ;)

Since I actually got some e-mail alerts on my YouTube account, I decided to see if anybody was actually looking at them. I’m sorta surprised…

 

1,165 hits on a chipmunk eating seeds underneath John Sheppard action figure.

   363 watched george the slug crawl over Rodney McKay action figure’s face

   918 watched the snippet of David Hewlett from Forever Knight

1,026 watched the snippet of David Hewlett from Night Heat

   495 watched a short vid of someone in VERY tight jeans in NYC

2,860 people watched a 14 second clip of of pure black with frogs croaking!

   140 watched a woolly bear caterpillar flee across the patio

1,842 watched a squirrel eat the pumpkin, which I later dropped on the action figures ;)

and lastly...
     60 people watched a totally black video which consisted of two dogs barking at each other on Christmas Eve
