the crossover we deserve

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

Having watched exactly one (1) episode of Rise, I have learned exactly zero (0) of the characters’ names. But that’s okay, because there were a LOT of similarities to other stuff. [I was expecting Glee, but Glee had that weird ‘we’re a serious teen drama BUT also a comedic parody of teen dramas’ thing going […]

Monday, March 19th, 2018

I’ve entered the part of March where I’m just 10,000% ready for it to not be winter anymore. Unfortunately, New Hampshire winter could easily last for anywhere from zero to eight more weeks. Even more unfortunately, it’s probably not a good idea to spend every day of those weeks ignoring everything by reading fanfic all […]

I have Some Thoughts

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

::deep breath:: I have Some Thoughts about the upcoming MCU Infinity War movie. And also fun thoughts. Let’s go with those. 1. A huge shoutout to that tumblr blurb about Shuri and Peter Parker pulling the “what’s updog” joke on Thanos. I chortled through the entire trailer thanks to that, and enjoyed it immensely. 2. […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

Since it is unseasonably warm at the moment, a post about going outside at work! 1. I work near an airport, which means every once in a while a very low-flying plane will go over while I’m out walking. This constantly gives me the urge to throw my hand up in the air, Free Willy […]

year of movies

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

Movies I’d watch in the theater: *Avengers Infinity War (ugh, I guess, I feel committed now) *Black Panther *Pacific Rim Uprising (!!!) Movies I’d rent to watch at home: *Incredibles 2 (never heard of this before, but google says it’s happening) *Oceans 8 (willing to see in the theater, but if it’s like the other […]

more Florida ADVENTURE notes

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

1. Pandora really doesn’t feel like the rest of Animal Kingdom. Then again, Dino-Land doesn’t either, really? Actually, it’s sort of an unusual mishmash of a park all over, so maybe Pandora fits right in! 2. Three people today told me they had no idea what Pandora was. (But there were commercials on tv! I […]

Shadowhunters fandom, r u ok? I only ask because I’ve recently been reading some fic (thanks blueMeridian!) and it seems to be approximately 90% ‘everyone is happy and gets enough sleep and eats pancakes.’ Which is totally up my alley and awesome, but I worry your show isn’t treating you right. In light of that, […]

fic rec Friday

Friday, August 4th, 2017

Uh, well, see, my new schedule is going to prevent me from reading a bunch of fic this morning to find one to rec here, which is actually often what I do on Fridays. But I do have something to say about fic in general, which is that I have seen a lot of posts […]

I was charmed and intrigued by the google doodle for Oskar Fischinger this week. Oskar Fischinger’s 117th Birthday Very fun to play with, plus I always enjoy learning more about the backstory behind the doodles. “I feel incredibly proud of my family and am delighted to be the daughter of Oskar and Elfriede Fischinger. It […]

distracted by Power Rangers

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

No work thoughts right now, still trying to figure out the Power Rangers movie. Here’s what’s tripping me up: there were other spaceships. (Okay, I’m only guessing they were space-flight-capable. But it seems like a safe guess.) When Zordon does his flashback explanation, multiple ships fly overhead. So who were they? Not Zordon’s team. They […]
