About this particular Goa'uld: Goa'uld aka Tak Simba Pez and her twin sister, Bookworm aka Haras Pickachu Pez aka Tok'ra are my favorite teenagers on this blue world and still would be if the competition were better. In a lot of ways, they're very different but have brilliance, blogging (Goa'uld avidly and Bookworm reluctantly,) brass (or Naquada) instruments, Stargate, a mother and a birthdate in common. Before I followed the links from Dddragon's site, I thought nice, well-mannered teenagers were extinct and had been since at least 1980.
A member of the first family of the Blogosphere, Goa'uld, like her mother and sister, is, um, well-scheduled. She plays trombone in her High School Marching Band; never misses an episode of Stargate so far as I can tell; writes, illustrates and animates a completely charming weblog, and considers a 90 on a test a catastophe. In my case it was always a clerical error. Goa'uld inherited the animation gene from her mother and did the flash animation above. On her profile, she lists her occupation as "Evil Twin" and I've never known her mother, grandmother, sister or aunts to disagree. Evil as she may be and clearly is, when she started leaving definitions here I decided she was my Charlie Bucket and I'm sticking to it. Goa'uld gets Waking Ambrose when I retire. And some chocolate.
About the Pezes, Part III: Goa'uld is the third and, for now (cough*Actonbell*cough*TLP*cough*Haras*cough,) final volunteer from the Pez family to do a guest entry here. It may seem like I'm sucking up to them in the hopes of being invited to picnic or something, but I assure all of you I'm guileless. Besides, Aral eats foliage.
