Today was THAT DAY. All day long. In honor of that, how about a video? Think About It (Flight of the Conchords) (So, you have to be in the right mood for Flight of the Conchords. But I was, and this made me laugh — your mileage may vary, as they say.)

what does one do at an engagement party?

Monday, September 26th, 2011

If you have ever asked yourself this question, fear not! After experiencing one of these cultural milestones as a non-family member guest, I have two suggestions for those who are not party-oriented. 1. Linger by the buffet (free food!). You can always employ the strategy of filling a plate, eating it, wandering as far from […]

a few car notes

Monday, September 26th, 2011

1. Blue car successfully integrated into life! Red car currently in limbo, while we wait to see if the Mom-mobile passes inspection. 2. I really don’t need my speedometer to go up to 160 mph. Who goes that fast? Plus, it means the even mph lines aren’t marked — I keep ending up going 50 […]

quotes from Thor

Saturday, September 24th, 2011

[Upon rewatching — and fast-forwarding through most of the fight scenes, Darcy and Clint really were the standouts, huh? Erik is uber-creepy pretty much all the time, but Coulson was pretty okay.] QUOTES (because quotability is a key factor in a movie’s longevity and overall awesomeness) “I’ve never met him.” “Until she hit him with […]

vid rec o’ the day

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

(Back from the party, and already browsing AO3 to wind down!) these are the days (of miracle and wonder) A multigenerational X-Men ensemble vid by kaydeefalls, to the song “The Boy in the Bubble” by Paul Simon. (It seems like a terrible thing to say, but I think all the X-Men movies are better when […]

[cover me]

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

So, I’m going to an engagement party tonight. Do you know when the last time I went to an engagement party is? That would be NEVER. I’m pretty sure I can dredge up a memory of *some* kind of party, at some point, but it was a long time ago. Like, years. And years. Today […]

fic rec o’ the day

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

One of the most interesting things about reading Avengers fic is that I rarely start by trying to figure out what timeline and/or canon they’re following. I’m really only familiar with the new movies, so all the comic!verse variations are sort of hit or miss for me. Which is a long way of saying that […]

on ‘Thor’

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Current Netflix movie: Thor What I Remember About Thor: There was a lot of boring fighting. Why I Left It In My Queue Anyway: Because apparently what fandom got out of Thor was ‘Darcy and Clint 4Ever’ and I want to watch the parts with them in it again. (It will be a quick re-watch!)

H50 is back… sort of.

Best Line: “You don’t watch the news, do you?” “I try not to. It’s very scary.” -Steve, Max Stupidest Plot Device: Kono being suspended and under investigation (STILL), while Steve is fully reinstated even though he attacked EMTs, escaped jail, attacked a police officer, stole a squad car, and broke into someone’s home. No, Wait, […]
