So, as the title of this post suggests, I'm now a fan of Sherlock (BBC). Watched the whole series in less then three days, though considering there's only nine episodes that's not that big of an accomplishment. Still, LOVED the show to pieces. (Am I the only one who thinks Sherlock would be good friends with L Lawliet and who's reminded of Donna Noble every time Watson scolds Sherlock?)
In other TV show related news my husband and I just started watching The Office (US) together. Am I the only one who fears the consequences should Dwight ever procreate? Seriously, despite his good taste in television and movies, the guy is a total suck-up and an uber a-hole. And Lord forbid he reproduce with the ice-witch Angela. The only thing good she has going for her is her love of cats and baking skills.
I feel SO BAD for poor Toby, always getting bullied and with nobody genuinely seeming to care for him. Sometimes I just wanna hug him and tell him everything will be okay. Also, how is that Michael has lived this long or gotten this far in his field? Half the time he's a total tool and yet the other half he somehow makes me feel sorry for him.
Last night I watched Bad Words with my mother-in-law. It was surprising that she's the one who picked it out, as dark humor usually isn't her favorite, but then again she did sleep through most of the movie so she undoubtedly missed all the bad/funny parts. Despite the fact that it just jumped into the story without first setting the stage--a minor annoyance in the long run, it was an overall good movie.

Twitter Fun

Saw Tom Hiddleston's post on Twitter the other day, couldn't resist posting this comment.
Tried to attach the following pic to my reply Tweet, but Twitter kept saying it was having an "Internal System Error" every time I attempted doing so. So I'll just add it here:

Cartoon Mice, Superheros, and UNICEF

So my husband and I celebrated the eight-year anniversary of our first date the other day. Every year we do exactly what we did on our first date (sans the group of friends who "chaperoned" us the first time*), catch a movie at the same theater and follow it up by a trip to the same Chuck E. Cheese for pizza, arcade games, and our yearly "sketch pad" photo. Depending on our schedule each year, sometimes we may go on a different day then our actual anniversary and at times we go to CEC first.
*Note: My husband and I first met on MySpace and as such our date was the first time we'd met in person. So, given the dangers of meeting someone you've met online, I decided to be cautious and take a small group of (3) friends along and hold the date at a public venue.
Anyway...This year we saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It was awesome, but why shouldn't it have been? It has Chris Evans, and Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson all reprising their award-winning roles of Steve Rogers, Black Widow, and Director Fury respectively. I also enjoyed the addition of Anthony Mackie as Falcon, hopefully he'll be in more Marvel movies. And of course, let's not forget the supporting cast of Hayley Atwell, Frank Grillo, Robert Redford, Cobie Smulders, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, et al. All tremendous talent who I wish to see in future films. Only down-side was having to listen to my husband comment on how Captain America should be "totally banging" the Black Widow. -_-' (Heterosexual) men...
Then today I watch About Time with my mother-in-law. Another good movie. LOVED the one song "How Long Will I Love You" performed by Jon Boden, Sam Sweeney, and Ben Coleman. Listen to it in the video link provided below.
In other news, I'll be partaking UNICEF's "Live Below the Line" challenge on April 28-May 2. Live Below the Line deals with the problem of extreme poverty and inequality by demonstrating the problem in a concrete way, while raising money to address the problem. Part of LBTL is challenging people to live off of £1 ($1.68 USD) a day in food/drink. In preparation for this I went to Target and bought and bought 10 packs of Maruchan ramen for $0.22 each, a box of Pop-Tarts (8 count) for $1.97, and an extra 2-pack of Pop-Tarts for $0.70. (For those who care about the math, that's about $0.50 for each pack of Pop-Tarts in the box.) That's around $0.94-$1.14 a day for breakfast and dinner (I usually don't eat lunch). With all that I've still got $0.54-$0.74 a day to splurge on at the vending machine.
If you'd like to sponsor me, and thus donate to the cause, please click on the link in the paragraph above or on the one located on the right side of this page under "Linkage." From what I understand, all donations are paid with PayPal and you can donate in increments of £10, £20, £50, £100, £150, or "other£." One person already donated £1 ($1.68 USD), presumably by clicking on the "other£" option and typing in a 1.

Steel City Con

Went to Steel City Con over the weekend with my husband and our friend Renee. Got to see Brent Spiner and Jonathan Frakes do a Q&A and had a BLAST.
^Me after seeing Brent Spiner & Jonathan Frakes.^

Drove over an hour away to Cleveland to see 9:30PM showing of Return to Nuke 'Em High the other day with my husband and our friend Renee. Husband ended up winning a lithograph signed by the director and cast members and a photo of the director that he signed. Also got pics taken with director and Toxic Avenger, so that was cool.
Tried going to get coffee afterwards but nowhere was open, we even hit three potholes and as a result had to refill one of the front tires with air. Gas station we filled the tire at was tagged with butt-loads of graffiti and sold bowls and other drug paraphernalia which made us feel über safe. So now the car might need a new tire. Joy.
^Out reaction to the gas station.^
Anyway...Saw some previews for a few movies that looked good: Bad Words, Under the Skin, Cheap Thrills, Short Peace, and my fave by far--Only Lovers Left Alive. Planning on seeing it with a friend hopefully by the end of the month.

Argh...That time of the month, again. *WARNING: TMI incoming.* For some reason whenever I'm on my period, or just about to start, I have to shit like it's nobody's business. *End TMI.* It's times like this I HATE being female. But alas, que sera sera.
Anyways...Just found out you can get a Blizzard® in a waffle cone at DQ now. Mind=BLOWN. There goes my diet. lol.

It lives!

So it turns out I'm not dead...yet. Which, to me and anyone who actually follows this, is a good thing. Hmm...what to say next?

Well, my husband plans on taking me to the Steel City Con in April to see Brent Spiner and Nicholas Brendon. *SQUEE!* I get to meet Data and Xander! *Insert happy dance.* So if you plan on attending maybe we'll bump into each other?

Rented Thor: the Dark World a week or so ago and have been on a Loki/Tom Hiddleston kick since. Mostly spending my free time reading Loki/OC fanfics and watching Tom Hiddleston interviews on YouTube. I particularly enjoy the ones where he does impersonations and/or dances. I've also made it a point to add any and all of his available movies to my Netflix list. (Something I do for all actors/actresses I particularly enjoy.)
OH! I also saw The Lego Movie last weekend with my husband and mother-in-law. Good times, but now I have "Everything is Awesome" running through my head over and over. T_T' Just makes me want to bust out my copy of Lego City: Undercover and play some more.

Did anyone else FREAK OUT when they watched Once Upon a Time this week? Not only is Rumple still alive, but the connection between the Wicked Witch and Evil Queen was shocking to say the least. Not as shocking as Peter Pan being Rumple's father, but a surprise none the less. (Felt like a pedophile being so attracted to Pan but was relieved when I found out the actor who played him, Robbie Kay, is 18.)

Speaking of surprises, this week's Teen Wolf and The Walking Dead episodes were shockers as well! I did NOT see either of those plot twists coming. I knew someone was supposed to die in Teen Wolf, as they teased it, but I didn't expect the person to die would be Alison. She was one of the main characters! Her poor father, loosing another family member to such tragedy...

I knew Lizzie had a few screws loose, but DANG! It's also a good thing for Carol that Tyreese is so forgiving. Though considering how he reacted to Karen's murder when it first happened I'm surprised he didn't just off Carol the second she told him the truth. Maybe his forgiveness was meant to show how he's grown as a person, or maybe he figures he still needs Carol's help to survive. Dunno...

Can't think of much else to say here, so for now I think I'll go.
