Loki!

I’ve got it bad for Tom Hiddleston/Loki.

I watch this video at least 4 times a day, if not more!

I don’t even know what is going on! I mean, I went through that stage in middle school where I was in love with Johnathan Taylor Thomas and Hanson, and in high school where I’d swoon at rock stars feet…but this is just weird! I mean, I’m married and I’m pushing 30 and I feel like some kinda crazy woman in love with …

Well damn have you seen his smile?

Boom. Try not to faint.

I don’t know why I’m so in love with this man… I mean his smile….his eyes…..his accent…..SWOON.

Phew give me a minute here.

Must…catch…my…breath…

People keep asking me why I keep talking about him around my husband. Here’s the deal. Hubby knows, and why on earth would he care? He’s got celebrity crushes. I know if Fran Drescher walked into the room I’d be immediately forgotten. It’s not like in the unlikely event that I find myself in the same room as Tom Hiddleston that I will immediately shred all clothing and throw myself onto his person with my husband standing there.

No. I’d give Tom a sly little wink wink nudge nudge action, shake the hubby, and then throw myself at him! DUH!

Seriously, I kid. In all honesty my husband is my best friend, and I would never do anything to intentionally hurt his feeling or rob him of his manhood or anything like that. He accepts I’m in love with Tom Hiddleston, and buys me toys to support my obsession!

No, not THAT type of toy, you sick perv!

Also, my hubby doesn’t beat me when I send him texts like this:

Mostly I have the best hubby ever, he knows I’m obsessed with Loki and doesn’t laugh at me when I do things like this to my computer monitor:

So fear not friends, if I end up murdered by my hubby in the middle of the night, it will not be due to my obsession with Tom Hiddleston.

It will probably be because I “accidentally” bumped into where it hurts the most on a man with my elbow one too many times….whoops!

Thor who?

The god of my Heart

Um…hi? *knock knock knock* Is this thing on?

So I’ve been silent for about a month now, I wanted to apologize for that. I know it’s in bad blogger form. My husband keeps telling me I “need to cheesecake”, and I know  he’s right. He goes about a month in between posts though, so I don’t know who he thinks he is telling me I need better blogger form. Harumph!

What’s been going on in my life for the past month that merits a chuckle-worthy blog post you ask? Not a whole lot really, hence the silence. I don’t know, I’ve not been particularly amused or horrified of anything lately.

But what I have found…is a new husband! Yep that’s right you heard it here first folks, in a month’s time I’ve divorced Woo and hitched up with a new man.

He’s a pretty powerful guy. Actually, he wants to rule the world, and how could a girl not love that. He’s got these awesomely beautiful blue eyes and a really cool staff. Not like he employes a staff, but  you know… a big stick thingy? Oh and his smile is absolutely swoon-worthy.

I know I’ve found my mate for life. Dear readers, I must admit I’m one happy girl to have found this love.

I’ve got a few of the wedding pics back, and I thought I’d share them here with you all.

Just mere moments after the big “I do”, isn’t he a dream boat?

I know he’s thinking “I couldn’t be happier…except if my plot to rule Earth had actually gone as planned.”

Unfortunately, my husband’s brother Thor has taken him back to Asgard because he’s a “bad guy”. Gah my brother-in-law can be such a hot head! I mean, Thor went all crashing into Jotunheim and pissing off a bunch of frost giants and putting the welfare of Asgard in danger. But nooooooo everyone’s all “Thor’s the greatest look at his awesome blonde locks he can do no harm..” yadda yadda, bull crap I say.

My husband Loki is just misunderstood. I mean, as a baby he was torn from his birth father and raised next to the mighty Thor, but had no hope of ever becoming the King of Asgard. So he may be a little mischievous… everyone wants to have a little fun now and then, do they not?

Ah Loki, I dream of the day you’ll be back in my arms again…

How could a girl not fall for a man with such an awesome helmet?

Hulk Smash

I’m not extremely well-versed in comic books – their heroes, villains, story-lines… But for the most part I do enjoy the movies they generate.

All I have to say is The Avengers was freaking bad-ass awesome! It was just a fun movie to watch, and a great way to escape the drone of every day life. Plus, it didn’t hurt that it had some pretty men in it! (and Scarlett Johansson for the fella’s out there.)

I really enjoyed Mark Ruffalo’s take on Bruce Banner/ The Hulk. As much as I love Edward Norton, I think Ruffalo probably did the character a little better service than Norton did in his 2008 role as the green guy. Some of the funnier moments in the movie come from the Hulk scenes. There was a part where the entire theater was cracking up so loud at the Hulk that none of my group could even hear what was being said on screen. So basically, Hulk rules!

Of course, the rest of the Avengers were awesome as well. Personally, I think one can never go wrong with Robert Downey Jr. I cannot imagine another person in the role of Iron Man! He’s just perfect for the role, and the banter between Iron Man and the rest of the cast is always hilarious. I like a movie that can have its serious moments, its action and explosions and grave dangers… but then also a good chuckle here and there. I think that’s the signature clue of Joss Whedon’s writing. (By the way, The Cabin in the Woods, also written by Joss Whedon…epic and must be seen by all! Is it also starring Chris Hemsworth, who played Thor in The Avengers. Win!)

I am not going to get into each of the other characters but they were all great in their own ways.  For some reason, I can’t stop staring at the film’s baddie, Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston. I don’t even know if I have some crazy fan-girl crush on him or not at this point…. I just like his face? I can’t explain it. All I know is that he’s on my can of Dr. Pepper so now I must drink more Dr. Pepper. Damn you advertising for getting to me! Damn you!

Moral of the story is, I’d go watch it again. I’d go watch it right now…if it weren’t 4 in the morning that is.

Here’s the trailer for the movie:

As someone who may not “get” everything there is about comic books and superheroes, I really recommend this movie for everyone! Not to mention it destroyed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 for the spot of #1 U.S. opening weekend of all time! I give it 10 slices of cheesecake up!

Thank You For Making Me Feel Old!

There’s just something about the American Reunion movie coming out that depresses me. I haven’t even decided if I’ll go watch it or not.

I was born in the mid-80’s, but am mostly a product of the 90’s. What a weird time the 90’s were too… but when I was a sophomore in high school this movie American Pie came out, and boy was it funny! (To me and my peers at least) Sure, it was stupid as hell. Nothing but sex jokes, but hey what do teenagers find more hilarious than sex jokes? It wasn’t going to go on to win any major awards or anything, but it gave us something to laugh at.

This month is my 10 year high school reunion, and American Pie comes back to us in the form of American Reunion. What happened to us all these last 10 years? Out of my little circle of friends we have 2 marriages going strong, 1 divorced, and two of them with kids. We have student loan debt, still haven’t found our dream jobs, homes or cars. Some of (actually, ALL of us) are still in pursuit of that blasted degree. We have lost parents and grandparents and in-laws. We have grown apart from each other, but we intend to rectify that in a few weeks.

We will not be going to our high school reunion.

It’s funny what life was like when I was a teenager, and thinking back to it. The late 90’s and the early 2000’s.

Here I am today – and I don’t feel like the same person. I look back to my teen years and it feels like I’m watching someone else’s life, not mine. Why is that? Does that happen to everyone else? I feel like I’ve put up a barrier between my current life and my past life, and I don’t know why. I wasn’t a bad kid, and life was like it was for everyone in my town – momma’s poor and daddy ain’t around. But she fed us, and I got good grades and I never got in trouble and I had great friends, and I was happy. Why does it feel like that was someone else’s life now?

That’s weird.

Ok, so too much contemplation for one day. Thank you American Reunion for making me feel old!

Shut Up Brain!

I can’t sleep, I’m bored, and these are the things currently on my mind:

1. I hate being self-conscious. Today I thought I caught two giggling teenagers pointing out my has-its-own-orbit girth. Later at the coffee shop I caught a man sitting at a laptop covered in Ron Paul stickers giving me sideways glances, which made me wonder if he was judging me too. I wondered at that point if there was a hole I could crawl in to or a giant sized paper bag to wear over my person.

2. The Foo Fighters are freaking bad-ass epic awesome. I saw them in concert when I was 16, and that needs to happen again.

3. I’ve needed to go to the grocery store since Wednesday, and I haven’t managed to make it there yet.

4. I’m terrified of loud pops.

5. Sam and Dean Winchester need to be real.

6. We went to see Wanderlust and it was really funny!

7. Maybe I shouldn’t have had a chai tea latte with a shot of espresso at 10 PM…

8. I can’t believe I’ll be 28 in 9 days… what happened to 18?

9. I’m addicted to Vanilla Coke Zero. I need some now. NOW!

10. I can’t wait until the Hunger Games movie comes out.

11.  I wish I had more than 3 hours of sleep.

12. Morgan Freeman should be the narrator of everything in existence.

13. They really should make a Gilmore Girls movie… for real. Really. Please?

Lego my Valentine – Part 2

13

Well, dearest reader, if you read my post the other day you will know that my husband bought me a Lego Harry Potter set, that some crappy person had previously emptied the box out, stuffed with a K’nex set, and sold back to the store. It made me make a sad face!

Today the good husband returned to the store to exchange the now K’nex set with a proper Lego Hogwarts, only to discover that the store was all sold out!

Double sad face.

So he decided to look on Amazon for the Lego Hogwarts set. I probably would have settled for something else (The Burrow for instance, which will be mine some day, oh yes it will!) But dang-it I really wanted the Lego Neville Longbottom that came with the Hogwarts set that would have been mine, had the muggle who “bought” it before my husband didn’t completely suck!

Well, it turns out I should be thanking the redneck out there that thought it would be a sweet deal to trick Wal-Mart by swapping Legos with K’Nex.  Unbeknownst to us, the husband had a $50 credit on Amazon.

HUZZAH! A now $3 Lego Hogwarts is en route to me as we speak.

NEVILLE WILL BE MINE!

I mean, how great is Neville Longbottom? So great, right?

Neville Longbottom - the ultimate bad-ass!

 

They can't keep me from you Neville!

Lego my Valentine

My husband and I are children. If something is marketed for a 12-year-old, you can pretty much bet money we’ll be in line to buy it. So when things are made that combine childish elements, such as Legos… and Harry Potter… well that’s just a recipe for my happiness. I know this, my husband knows this, and now you know this!

Well, instead of things like roses, or fine jewelry, my husband set off for the store to get what would surely make me happier over all other things — a ginormous Lego Harry Potter set of Hogwarts! Score!

Well, you can imagine my excitement when I tore into the box, ready to get my hands on a tiny Lego version of Neville Longbottom..

I mean come on! There could be nothing better in this world than a miniature Neville Longbottom!

After fighting with the tape holding the box together, I eagerly threw my hand into the box to pull out all the tiny Lego bits (which were sure to scatter to the four corners of the room ready to embed themselves in my foot) .

Except, I found this instead:

"Hmm maybe they added a mini-game in this Lego set?" - me to myself.

I thought this was odd, random dice, red and blue bits, and other oddities.

Then I learned, there were no Legos in my box at all. I did get a freaking full box of K’Nex though… thank you very freaking much to whoever did this! Not cool, nay, not cool at all!

Maybe if I had paid attention in transfiguration class I'd know how to turn this into a Lego Hogwarts set!

I would like to use crucio on whoever took home a Lego Harry Potter set, unboxed it, stuffed random dice and a K’Nex set back in it, returned it to Wal-Mart and got their money back! How rude!

Oh well, at least I can go to bed knowing that Captain Jack Sparrow won’t let me down!
