I have a lot to say sometimes but not enough for the different topics to make up separate posts, so that’s when I make up one of these and *babble* from one thing to the other like a little firecracker. Thankfully, I’ve heard you guys like it when I ramble, so this is okay. 🙂
My bathroom was the home of three cockroaches and a scorpion last night. Yeah. *dramatic voice* But then, genocide happened! In five minutes flat. And I was terrified. lol, Well, until I found the scorpion, then I wasn’t really scared anymore. I was just like, “Hey, a scorpion; I’ve killed a couple hundred of these, this is my forte, I know what to do with this; you’ve met your doom tonight you tiny devil!” Anyway … it was disgusting overall. And I want my mattress off the ground for the summer.
I saw Disney’s Alice in Wonderland for the first time this week. I figured before I watch the one with Johnny Depp (yes, I am still going through my Johnny Depp/quirkier movies stage), I better just see what the original story is like beforehand. It was…. strange and in a few ways almost disturbing (specifically the oyster story, ohmygosh, what the heck was that?) but overall I enjoyed it. It dragged in the middle for me but the beginning and end was intriguing enough.
I’m looking forward to watching the live action film. 🙂
It is near the end of May and I would be crazy to not acknowledge that it has been a full year since I first reopened The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and had him walk off the pages back into my life. Thanks to, well, this blog, which I have filled with things that I want to remember, I was able to trace the exact date—the exact Sunday—that Dylan and I—excuse me, The Doctor and I—decided to begin reading the same stories together. I’m pretty sure it was the sixth of May. And after that, a whole year was spent getting back into literature= Dracula twice, Murder on the Orient Express, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and volumes of Sherlock Holmes, including all four novels. It. Was. Amazing. If only we could have finished them together before May was up; WHY IS LIFE CRUEL?
Either way, that was one of the best things to happen to me and I’m pretty sure getting back into Sherlock Holmes changed my life. I think I would be a very different individual if I hadn’t gotten back to reading. So, at this moment, I want to thank you, Doctor, for taking the time to read with me like you did; I know it must have been difficult sometimes making it work with a job and school and other things too. But I really really appreciate you reading with me. I miss you a lot and I’m still waiting for you drive over to show me the Tardis on your key chain….
I’m getting sentimental now, let’s move on..
Oh yeah.. and…. and than this… this below happened…
Last night Kayla and I saw Star Trek from 2009. . . . . . . . . Um, well, it didn’t convert me into a Trekkie or anything but it was good to finally see something Trek that was decent (I’m still gagging and washing my eyes out from that half an episode I saw, like, a year ago). It was a pretty good movie, although there was an excess amount of flares. Thankfully my mom watched it with us so she was able to point out, “oh, hey, that’s Scotty, he did all the beaming on the Enterprise” ect whenever these iconic characters were introduced. Otherwise I wouldn’t have known, like, oh hey that’s so and so–except for Spock; he was easy. Overall: it was good. We’ll see if Into Darkness with Benedict Cumberbatch does anything more for me when we go see it.
Favorite character? I have no idea.
Well, I’ve let out some steam… so, I don’t have much else to just go on about for a paragraph or two. What am I doing today? I’m going to be out shopping with my mom later this afternoon and then will be babysitting the neighbor dogs for the evening. And I’ll be watching a movie by myself too… probably that live action Alice In Wonderland movie. Hope it’s good! 🙂
Have a good weekend everybody; especially to all my internet friends who get to be at Star Wars Weekends! I’M SO ENVIOUS! 🙂 Anyway…. live long and prosper.
I can’t believe I just said that.
