Yesterday I woke up from a dream where Neil Gaiman inadvertently set a cadre of supervillains loose at my high school. I was charged with the two-tiered task of saving the rest of my classmates, and
stopping school administration from badmouthing Mr. Gaiman about the somewhat unfortunate events that had occurred while he was there. Not to mention the guest appearance by Captain America and trying to figure out whether or not we were still going to have Q&A Time with Neil when all of the fighting was done. So many questions I had!
I went and saw Termintator: Salvation
at a midnight screening, something I haven't done since Lord of the Rings, and I had a lot of fun. I'm am officially all about some Sam Worthington, and can't wait to see James Cameron's Avatar
now, whenever that's supposed to come out. Still, I felt the movie itself was somewhat lacking. I dunno,--I mean I enjoyed it, but, I go into pretty much every highly anticipated flick thinking it's going to be my favorite, and as the movie progresses I deduct points. I found myself deducting a few points, but I still had a good time. Know what still in the top spot for me though? Star Trek
. It's gonna take a movie of badass, epic proportions to knock it off it's perch, but who knows? There's stil time.
While I'm waiting... seperis
had this to say about the relationship between Kirk and Spock in the reboot: This is two people who can compare and contrast their juvenile arrest records. This is two people who already have a habit of fighting personally and escalate each other to violence. Their intial reactions to being challenged by each other is already set in the habit of going for the throat first. It's like they were looking all their lives for the one person they can't break, and lookie here, there you go. Jim Kirk, who doesn't know how to lose, and Spock, who burns down the village and salts the earth when he goes to war. They are going to have some epic fights, and some epic angry sex.
I wholeheartedly agree, and cannot wait. Can anybody point me in the direction of some kickass reboot Spock/kirk fic yet?
In other news, this whole 'getting married' thing is just too much. My bridesmaids are killing
me. I know they're meant to mean well and be sort of a support and everything, but no one told me I was getting like 5 additional mothers. You know what the problem is? i'm letting them get too involved
, I think. I've tried like 17 different kinds of dresses on these broads, of several different colors, and I just keep getting emails and texts like about how fat they look in one style or how washed out one color makes them. At this point, I'm this close to sending out an email saying, "Attention, bitches in my wedding. You will wear whatever unholy nightmare I unleash upon you and you will try your damndest to look pleased and happy whilst wearing it. That is all." I think that would solve a majority of my problems, don't you?
