My parents got a treadmill! and it's built in a way I can put my tablet on it, so now I can exercise and watch mindless tv shows at the same time. SCORE.

So in that vein, I'm almost done with Arrow season 1. It's been more enjoyable since there hasn't been any island flashbacks. I fucking hate the island flashbacks. What's gonna be there next, flying monkeys? Flying ninja monkeys?? Everyone's a damned ninja there, I wouldn't put it out of the question.

I've always been really, really weirded out at how boring I find Laurel. I mean, she's a plucky, daring lawyer who sticks out for people who can't! She's like, the very definition of my kind of beloved character! And yet I find her super dull. I DON'T GET IT. I mean, Katie Cassidy is not the world's greatest actress, but she was actually pretty entertaining as Ruby? WHAT HAPPENED. Ah well.

In any case, Felicity was recently undercover in a casino putting her foot in her mouth and everything is beautiful and nothing hurts.

It’s seriously really weird, but I’m super attracted to Mark Ruffalo - except when he’s Bruce Banner or being himself. He’s - sort of Dad-ish as himself, and Bruce is… Bruce Banner, and doesn’t ping my radar, but in every single other movie he’s ever made? OH YES. Especially in Brothers Bloom, oh my, ngggh. Even in Now You See Mee, which was a craptastic movie, he’s there to bring the hotness. It’s so damn bizarre.

So anyway, I understand north of the border there’s like a tiny celebration or something. I think Eagles and fireworks are involved. Have a good one, folks from the US.

So you should all go read this, for it is beautiful and so well written and a bit devastating. Peggy/Steve, Bucky/Steve. In which Steve jumps out of Shmidt's plane, marries Peggy, and has life and the 20th century happen to him. And life is hard.

A Long Winter

I've seriously been replaying bits of this in my head for hours, it was just really striking.

Yesterday’s Mexico match was crazy tense. One of my coworkers is the most football obsessed person I’ve ever met, and he seemed close to a goddamn heart attack. The memes about Saint Memo of the Goal were the best part though.

There’s now a second dog at work now! DOGGIES. They spend their days rough housing and chasing each other and rolling around in dirt and puddles. It’s so awesome.

Currently reading The Song of Achilles. I swear, this woman has to be writing fic somewhere out there. Probably about her own book. AWESOME. Seriously though, it does have the same sort of cadence as good fic in current fandom does, and I would not be surprised at all to find out she’s somewhere out there on the AO3. So, yeah, the book is all right so far. I do wish it was less coy with the sex scenes though…

Even though I don’t usually do the meme, it’s Wednesday, so:
What I just read: The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August, which was pretty good, though it had some rough patches, and it had the potential to be great, which wasn’t quite fulfilled. Basically, it had such a cool plot, tarnished by the boring white dudes chosen to be narrator and villain.

So you should all do yourselves a favor and watch In the Flesh, for it is lovely and amazing and deep and funny and has great music. I mean, it has zombies, human defense militias, complicated politics, a queer main character, cuckoo undead prophets, sleepy English town drama and adorable Northern accents, what else could you want?

Crossing my fingers and toes and dunno what else for it to get a third season. ♥

Also, dude playing Kieren has the most awesome huge eyes ever, I seriously thought they had him on those extra big iris japanese contacts at first! So he's super cute, and I spent pretty much every scene with Maxine in it thinking 'goddamn, this woman is so gorgeous'. All the shows for her.

Went to see The Grand Budapest Hotel on Friday and it was absolutely charming and adorable and funny and amazing. So recommended.
On Saturday I saw Godzilla, which was… ok. Mostly it made me wanna watch Pacific Rim again, so I did. Ah, Pacific Rim. So awesome. So exciting. ♥

Anyway, so, Godzilla - the monster bits were cool enough that i didn’t feel cheated (that first glimpse at Godzilla was so rad), but all of the human bits were so boring. Also, all they made Ken Watanabe do was look around confused. So, so confused. Poor Ken Watanabe.

Then again, I have a massive soft stop for the 90s movie. So bad. So good.

I was about to order This One Summer by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki, because some comics deserve to be read physically, and I thought, what the hell, let's get some more. I've long wanted to complete my collection of Brian Michael Bendis' run on Daredevil, but it's out of print and it was only when I ordered from three party vendors that I realized they were charging fucking 35 dlls in shipping for a 10 dlls book. WHAT. NO.

I backtracked pretty fast. So I'm ordering Nextwave even though it's unavailable at the moment, but that comes from Amazon and the shipping is like 5 dlls. For whenever it comes, I guess. Also getting some Fables trades. I'm so so behind on Fables, I suck.

UGH. Why are comics so expensive? Why do I earn so little? I really wanna support the new Black Widow series, too, but the trade isn't coming out until July, boo. I dislike paying 4dlls for a single issue with shitty paper and ads enough, I'm so not paying that for digital.

I read this fic yesterday and it just about broke me. Fucking hell, this is so damn gorgeous and well written. READ IT. NOW.

(Bucky/Steve, It's harder than Steve ever expected to bring Bucky home.)

The movie is getting a bunch of well-deserved praise, but the OST is going sadly ignored - it’s such a lovely, well-fitting score. I’ve been listening to it a bunch on spotify. Keep Henry Jackman for Cap, please. Now they just have to hire Ramin Djawadi for Iron Man again (that first movie score was brilliant) and we’ll be set.

We moved to a new office on Friday and it’s all been exhausting. I mean, both the moving and the settling down again too, but mostly the fact that my computer broke or something in the move and while it’s getting fixed I have to repeat all of my files and lost a lot of work I’d already started on that had to be handed in today. So yesterday was crazy busy. But! The work puppy seems to be enjoying the new space to roam!

*That’s from the old office. I haven’t actually taken a photo of the dog roaming the new patio yet. This is false advertisement, I know.

I went to see CATWS again last night and like half the theatre went OMG GASP!! when Bucky
was revealed. DID NO ONE EVEN WATCH THE TRAILERS?? The girl beside me went ‘It’s his frieeeeend!!’ and I giggled a bit. Anyway, it was probably even more fun on the second viewing. :3
