Look! I'm posting again already! :O Could this be a renaissance?!

Let's talk about some fun movies and teevee! Last night I went to see Thor with Josh because he's a big ol geek, and I had heard it's fun. It was fun! The visuals were awesome, Thor was charming and ridiculous, Natalie Portman was a kickass lady nerd - you don't see those very often! I loved when Thor kissed her hand and she was like fuck that! and kissed him, haha. I would so do that. I knew that everyone on the internet loved Loki and I had gotten the impression that he was funny and/or endearing, so I kind of spent the movie waiting for that and was a bit disappointed? I wish I hadn't had that mistaken impression because I think I would have really enjoyed his fucked up conflicty character, doing all the wrong things JUST TO BE LOVED! *hands* I did enjoy Tom Hiddleston's face, as I know many of you do too. :P Overall it was a delightful piece of fluff that I enjoyed quite a lot.

When I was looking up times for Thor, I saw that Kyle Chandler is in JJ Abrams' new movie, Super 8, so I checked out the trailer. It looks pretty cool and I thought I might see it. But then I saw EW's review which called it "loving, playful, and spectacularly well made" and I simply can't NOT see this film now. I mean. KYLE CHANDLER. Eric Taylor from Friday Night Lights! As a sheriff! With his gravelly voice and his sweet eyes on the BIG SCREEN. Obviously I am seeing this film ASAP.

As for The Tee-Vee, I have been keeping up with the fantaaaaastic Game of Thrones, but I am one episode behind so please don't spoil me for that one! I have read the books so it's an interesting experience watching such a tense drama when I already know most of the twists. It's still incredibly engaging and compelling so major kudos to the creators and writers for that. My favorite casting is by far Daenerys, she's otherworldly and young yet has this incredible steel thread running through her, she's breathtaking. I also love little Arya, and Jon Snow (KIIIIT <3), and I also like Catelyn a lot because I feel much more sympathetic to her than I do in the books. Tyrion is, of course, magnificent, and Jaime? Screen door, hurricane, etc. Yummm. Lena Headey is not at all how I envisioned Cersei, but she's doing a brilliant job. So yes! Thank you to HBO to bringing this massive series to life, it's such a delight. If you haven't read the books, I'd be very curious to hear what you think about the series! (You can point me to posts if you've posted about it, trying to catch up around here is tough!)

I am SO HAPPY White Collar is back. sdlfkjlsdf. I don't really have much else to say because it's not the most thinky of shows but NEAL AND PETER AND EL AND MOZZIE *grabbyhands* Also the internet has erupted with THE BEST CASTING SPOILER OF ALL TIME EVER, and I will die when episode 3x09 comes out. *______* I also watched Castle eagerly every week and I'm quite sad it's over for now. That was a super epic finale and I can't WAIT til it comes back. Bones... I still love Bones, but the finale made me roll my eyes and go "really?". Unfortunately. :( We can talk about that if you want but I'm sure it's been hashed over many times.

DOCTOR WHOOOOOO. Ahh it is delightful. Ten is still my favorite, but Eleven is delightful and whimsical and HIS LITTLE BOWTIE and yes. Melikey. I grow fonder of Amy every day and ROOOOORY. ♥ That was a pretty epic midseason finale, I must say. The other night, my friend (who has been watching the whole series from the beginning, he LOVES it) asked me to watch the season 4 finale with him, so of course I did and had my heart born and ripped to shreds again. SO AMAZING/HORRIBLE AT THE SAME TIME. *flails*

Man I have missed just flailing about in blog posts about this stuff! It feels good to be back. ♥

And to round this post off, I simply have to gush about Josh a little bit. Feel free to skip. ;) As I mentioned, Josh and I went to see Thor last night, our first movie together, awww. At one point I mentioned that I had seen both The Notebook and Boondock Saints in my freshman year of college, but I liked Boondock Saints much more. He looked at me seriously and said "Have I mentioned I love you?" Heeheehee. (For the record, no he hasn't, and that was a total joke. Don't want to alarm anyone, lol) Our fondness for movies with lots of guns and fast cars will mesh quite nicely, I feel. :D So he enjoyed the movie too (mostly he's really really looking forward to the Avengers, which - JOSS WHEDON. So am I!) and then we went home and had another lovely evening and for the first time, I think, I sent home a boy before I headed off to work in the morning. :D He requires much more sleep than I do and I, cough, kept him up rather late so he didn't get much sleep, and he apparently went home and took a nap before going to work, aww. Poor baby needs his beauty sleep.

On a serious-ish note, I have to say that when we were first going to meet, I didn't know if he would find me attractive at all because he is so incredibly in shape and serious about being in shape, and on his OK Cupid profile he had answered a question of preferred female body time as "thin" or something, so I was like... is he gonna think I'm a fat slob who never gets off her ass (mostly because lab keeps me too busy)? And obviously he finds me attractive enough (er, to the point where he can't keep his hands off me haha) but last night he said a couple things that made me smile - he said I'm the perfect size, and that I'm a "little thing" that he can lift with one arm. Now, it's not really true that I'm a little thing (150 lbs) but it IS true that he can lift me with one arm (dear god his biceps) and mostly I'm just chuffed that he doesn't like me DESPITE my not-quite-model-type body but rather because of it. Or something. Anyway, it was all very affirming and sweet and ummm I enjoy him greatly!

Okay that's enough babbling for now. I'm at the stage where I want to TELL THE WHOLE WORLD HOW I FEEL!!!!! and LJ is an excellent outlet for that, where no one's really obligated to listen but you still feel like you've gotten it out of your system. *g*

I'm glad you liked Thor and sorry with messing up your Loki first impression. I might have been part of that. *hides* Some people are going overboard with with Loki!Obsession, they're even scaring me! But Jane was awesome, go her for just planting one on Thor.

Hiddleston is sad we ruined your experience with him.



Lena Headey is not at all how I envisioned Cersei, but she's doing a brilliant job. YES! She is so different from the book but I kinda like it too.

Oh and don't worry about Josh, he did go on a date with you even if he says his type is different. He was out with you. That means he in interested in SOME WAY. *hugs* I know its hard to think that way, I mean, I'm seeing a counselor who tells me that on a regular basis and it still doesn't always sink in.

I have to be honest and say that I haven't read my LJ flist in a while, so I promise it wasn't your fault! I'm slowly trying to get back into that. My impressions were based off a few random comments on Twitter, it's my fault honestly! But awwwww look at Tom's face. I'M SORRY TOM. YOU HAVE A NICE FACE.

Lena is somehow.... warmer than I expected Cersei to be, and less stunningly gorgeous, you know? She's looks more like an accessible woman. But I think that makes her cruel words and actions even that much more startling, so it's effective. Also I know she has the acting chops to handle everything Cersei goes through!

I'm slowly coming around to the realization that Josh is pretty into me. It feels great. :D

I was supposed to go see Thor with my guy friends but we waited too long and they replaced it. :( I wanted to see Nordic gods! I don't exactly have warm feelings for Natalie Portman but she's a good actress, so I need to get my hands on that movie.

I sooo need to catch up with Game of Thrones. I will tell you all my thoughts once I see it because I haven't read the books!

YAY WHITE COLLAR AND DOCTOR WHOOO. ♥ I don't understand people who don't like Amy! WAIT IS THIS CASTING SPOILER ABOUT THAT BADASS WOMAN WE ALL LOVE?

Josh is sounding better by the minute, bb. I'm so happy for youuu!

I should feel more conflicty about Natalie Portman but I always just want to give her a hug when she's on screen (no I didn't see Black Swan, lol) so *hands* I'm sorry you missed out on Nordic gods! Brother gods, more importantly! You should see it at some point, it's fun!

YOU DO YOU DO! TELL ME ALL YOUR THINKY THOUGHTS.

UHHH YES THE BEST CASTING SPOILER IN THE WHOLE BLOODY WORLD. ALSO SHE WILL BE IN THE SAME EPISODE AS A CERTAIN EASY COMPANY SOLDIER. SLDKFJSLDKJFLKJSLDFJSLDFKJSDL I WILL EXPLODE INTO A MILLION TINY PIECES OF GLEEEE.

Josh makes my heart do a squishy thing. :D I can't stop smiling when I think about him. Thank you bb! <333

I enjoyed Thor too. Sorry you didn't like Loki as much as I did. I think I have a thing for bad guys. Plus, his face is quite delicious.

So glad to hear things are going great with the boy. He sounds awesome.

You can babble at me any time you want. <3

His face WAS delicious, I was just derailed by my expectations! I'm sure if I saw it again I would appreciate his woobie face much more.

Aww thank you. :D He's pretty awesomesauce, yeah. <3
