But anyway, I'll try to keep this updated with rl stuff though.
Lately it's just been dealing with the fallout of my sister eloping with the new guy--which sent my parents each into their own depression and made my mom's health problems worse. On the plus side, Tosh actually seems happy with this guy? I don't know, not holding my breath.
In other news, I'm going to try to go back to school in January. Funerary archeology here I come!
I keep having strange dreams (and I'm going to blame it on the cold meds) but they're all ideas that would make good books, so I've been jotting them down to write later. Missed my window on this, which sucks, but there will be other shots. I don't think they would have picked mine anyway--it's nowhere in the same league as the other authors they publish, and still needs a lot of work before it's a book people would want to read.
In other news They confirmed they're using the Dark Elves in Thor: The Dark World, so I can't fucking wait for that. It was already pretty obvious they were, but I wasn't going to celebrate until I heard for sure. I must be the only Loki fangirl who is looking forward to him getting the crap kicked out of him. Of course, I'm one of the only Loki fangirls who doesn't just want to fuck his brains out but knows he's a batshit insane villain, so...
Stomach people, what's your recommendation for getting flat?
I've been such a lazy ass my entire life that this is all very new to me, and I'm starting to wonder why I never did this before. I've done sit-ups most of my life and weight lifting from time to time, but never running/walking like this. Not since elementary school when I raced cross-country, but that was lifetimes ago.
Anyway, also got a lot done on my novel, and I'm way psyched about working on it. My photoshop muse also randomly came back, idek.
ALSO PYRO SENT ME A PACKAGE OF REALLY COOL WHEDON STUFF FOR MY BIRTHDAY THAT ARRIVED TODAY *FLAILS*
Also I don't understand how anyone can complain about a movie that has Kate Beckinsale kicking Collin Farrell's ass in tight pants. I mean, those two people are fucking beautiful, and to see them fight? Me gusta.
The Avengers: see it before you die no matter the cost. Whedon writing Marvel is inspired.
Prometheus: fucking amazing and an awesome concept for the origin of the aliens. Fassy makes a scary robot.
Snow White and the Huntsman: I love everything about this movie. Some people complained it was too slow, but I loved it for that even, and the score is amazing.
MIB3: Loved it. Epic time travel story of win.
Chernobyl Diaries: lmao stupid as hell but hilarious to make fun of.
ALSO FUCK YOU ANDREW SCOTT WON A BAFTA ♥
This show, I just...I have so many feels already.
That said, my ribcage still feels like a giant bruise (it was violent throwing up, not the simply gagging nonsense) so I've been trying not to laugh or cough, but the frakking cold is still there despite the flu being gone. Idk how I managed to get everything all at once, I guess the Fates just hate me.
In other news Lockout was brilliant (and will probably be a very underrated movie given the poor advertising for it), and I loved the perfection that was Cabin In The Woods
( on Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (spoilers behind the cut) )
Honestly, I think with this one they weren't taking themselves too seriously (it had the same weekend project for fun feel that Jonah Hex did, like a bunch of actors just messing around.) idgaf I loved it, even if there were moments where I was embarrassed for the movie makers.
( on Sea Wall and it's realism (spoilers behind the cut) )
In other news, waking up three hours before I have to go to work just because I crashed early with a migraine is uncool. It's just a run to one of the hospitals in Tucson, however, so I won't be gone all day hopefully. Using the drive up and back to plot/ponder things about my book so that I can get back on writing it again. I've fallen into horrible habits now that I'm catching up on rp of ignoring my own novels, so I may start setting aside an hour each night where I take a break from rp.
We'll see how well that works out I guess.
