 I loved everyone in the movie; the Hulk was hilarious, Natasha was kickass, everybody was sexy hot and oh my god so many gorgeous butts and biceps, haha.

Matt Bomer is guest starring as Blaine Anderson's (played by Darren Criss, who I will always remember as Harry Potter from the Potter Musical Parody) older brother on Glee next week. I think they're also doing a mashup of Duran Duran's 80's hits, plus this lovely duet of Gotye's "Somebody I Used to Know".  This will have to satisfy me until White Collar comes back.

 That really was a great episode, especially the interviews.  The ending had me on the edge of my seat and I can't wait to see what can come after this.  Also, so much new background info on Neal and all the other characters too.  Where are the fanfic people?!?!!?

1. OMG Sherlock season 2 was hilarious, thrilling, and very very fun to watch.

2. Yay!!! Season 3 of Sherlock confirmed!!!   

3.  Yay!!! Benedict Cumberbatch as villain in new Star Trek sequel!!! It's like a double dose of awesomeness, because of more Kirk/Spock + bonus! Sherlock!

4. Seriously, WTF, CBS doing another take on modernized Sherlock living in New York? Noooooooooo!!!  No one can top historical version RDJ Sherlock or modern version BC Sherlock!!  What's that saying, two's company, three's a crowd? I like my current Sherlocks and Watsons and their epic romances as is, so no thank you.

5.  Wheeeee!!!!!!! White Collar is back tonight!!!

New episode of BBC Sherlock season 2 has so much innuendo on John and Sherlock's relationship! Can't wait for next week's episode. ^_^

So, I just got hit on by a guy who is 30 years older than me............I'm not sure what that says about me......or him....

The new year is almost here and I am sadly not going anywhere because it's cold and I don't like to drink. Thus I'm cooking a juicy tri-tip and roasted vegetables to console myself while reading Star Trek fic ^_^. And maybe work on those new year's resolutions.

Oh my God, I just spent over an hour helping my brother trim the back of his head with a Schick razor because he wanted to *experiment* with shaving his own head. He came out of the bathroom while I was mashing potatoes for dinner with the sides of his head closely trimmed and the back of his head still full with hair.......it was so funny I couldn't look at him without laughing. Anyways, he apparently couldn't see the back of his own head well enough with the mirror so I, as the helpful older sister, was conscripted to help finish off the job. The only time I've ever helped cut somebody's hair I was using an electric hair groomer with attachments, not a battery-operated razor, a comb, and a pair of school scissors, so I'm sure no one can blame me if it's not all completely even or straight. On the other hand, he's a teenage boy and he can just go to the barbers and get his whole head trimmed professionally. I can't wait till the parents see him.

Haven't had much time to go online lately. Just got back from my sister's college graduation and it was so very painful for many reasons:

So, one down, one more to go on Friday for my younger brother's high school graduation......this time, I'm bringing a hat.

Am being peer-pressured by my geeky friends to go see the new Star Trek movie even though I really know absolutely nothing about the entire franchise....seriously, I barely remember the original Star Wars Trilogy and didn't bother to check out the new prequels.......

It's so horrible that I'm now browsing around for Merlin fanfics even though I have a hard time even trying to watch the tv series. It's just that I have a really hard time imagining the actors who play Merlin and Arthur have sex of any kind...it's so awkward somehow.....and yet some of the Merlin fics I've come across have been really awesome and I am able to ignore any squeamishness I have concerning the characters.

Finally got the season finale schedule, so many shows to watch...

Feeling so much regret right now.  Yesterday I told myself I had a price limit for an item I was buying on Ebay.  Then during the last 5 minutes of the auction I found myself competing with this one bidder until the final second.  In the end, I went over my limit by 10 bucks and what's worse is that the person I was competing with has no feedback history at all.  I also happened to find another seller who is closer to my location, offers free shipping, and buy it now option, which means I could've used live search cash back and gotten the stupid thing for even less.  Am also frustrated at spending hours a day trying to figure out how to set up and increase our wireless network to over 100 feet and multiple walls.

So many hassles this year it's hard to enjoy the holiday season. But my new year's resolution for next year is to try harder and if i do as well as i hope, then as a reward/belated bday gift to myself........the freaking awesome amazon kindle, which i really want but don't really need ^_^

I'm still waiting for the supposed big storm that's coming towards us, but so far, the weather reports have lied. Still cold tho, so i'm discovering sentinel fanfic without ever having seen the show, heh.


Something to look forward to tho is cross country ski trip! where are my snow chains?!?

On the one hand, Obama actually won, but on the other hand, people are still scared of "nontraditional" marriages.  Sighs, people are weird and irrational.  I'm sorry for those who will be affected by the new laws, but hope that Obama will make good on his promises and make some real changes.

Why is it that the only two shows which provide me squee-worthy moments and awesome awesome stories are ending after their 5th seasons?  I mean, I can understand the reasoning for Supernatural, not wanting to drag out a pretty linear storyline and ending while still on top, but Stargate Atlantis is freaking sci-fi with a pretty big cast and still has so many unresolved issues and new directions it could go.  I know I'm probably overly influenced by all those colony!Atlantis and stories such as those by Domenika Marzione, which focused on the military side of Atlantis that we never see...........which made me realize that there's so much that we never see about what's happening on and off Atlantis. 

Ah well, at least fandom still lives on even after shows end. 

So, tried watching Dark Angel and Gilmore Girls.........and kinda just skipped forward a lot since they just didn't appeal to me.  Which confirms that I probably won't be seeing Friday the 13th or My Bloody Valentine, even tho I like Jared and Jensen.........just not in roles other than Sam and Dean. 


Saw Tropic Thunder, and OH.MY.GOD.......the last fake trailer in the begining of the movie.....most hilarious parody ever.....it was just so freaking cliched/corny.....heh, it could totally be a yaoi manga.........

Just reading the excerpts from SGA BigBang and seeing how long the stories are - seriously 100,000+ words- is making me excited about the SGA fandom again.  Lately I've been more into the SPN fandom, because their BigBang stories are being posted but the two fandoms aren't really comparable.  SGA really has SPN beat on epic AUs, but SPN has more love and angst, lol.

Hmm, I used to keep a list of all the books I read starting in 8th grade (which is when I discovered science fiction and fantasy - thank you Tamora Pierce and Raymond E. Feist). After that I jumped into romance novels, and updated the list until I I graduated high school (after which I moved to college and lost the list). During that time I read on average 3 books a week; I carried a book with me everywhere and read during my lunch period. I don't think any of the books on my list are in the top 100 books list......but at least I enjoyed them, which is more than I can say for most of the books on the following list^_^


According to The Big Read, the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books on their list.

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've only read 6 and force books upon them ;-)
