Dreaming is something I do

Oct. 11th, 2011 | 08:32 pm

This is something I dreamt back in February and am only just reminded happened when I found it written down.

I'm going to blame Tumblr and Dianna Agron's perfect face for her co-staring in this dream.Collapse )

Lemonade?

It just occurred to me that I've never seen a peeled lemon and I have no idea why that should be or why it suddenly matters, but someday I am going to peel a lemon.

I finished the series.

And I have some thoughts about it.Collapse )

In other news I'm moving on to Piratica by Tanith Lee. I don't know anything about this book except that I wish I had a Halloween costume of the outfit displayed in the cover art. I'm saving Terry Pratchett's I Shall Wear Midnight for my flight next week.

Surprise!Onion Ring

Sep. 9th, 2010 | 08:57 pm

Mom bought me Burger King fries today. They tasted a little funny, but not funny enough for me to stop eating them. I was too hungry. Got to the bottom of the box and there it was, the surprise!onion ring, sitting unsuspecting in the bottom...tainting my potato goodness.

I don't like onion rings, much less surprise ones.

The cat, however, likes them just fine.

Movie Musings

My brother on Toy Story 3: "Best in the series...I don't know how many souls they had to sell to get that script, but it is great. And only an absolute monster wouldn't tear up during a couple scenes. Well written AND with room for a 4th. If the Toy Story scripts keep improving every movie like they have been...well, I'm pretty sure the pinnacle of human achievement will occur somewhere around #7."

See that? That is why my younger brother is my favorite brother (of 4). Considering what a cynic he typically is and how disinclined towards sequels of any kind, this kind of has me foaming at the mouth to see Toy Story 3. Unfortunately, I am broker than broke and must wait to see it.

What I didn't have to wait to see was the 1985 movie version of Red Sonja. If you don't know who Red Sonja is, that's okay, I'll explain. Red Sonja is a sword and sorcery character with origins in R.E. Howard's Conan stories. She took on a life of her own when given her own comic book adaptation after appearing in Marvel's Conan the Barbarian #23. Of course, she has a properly tragic background which inspired her to take up the sword and seek vengeance and since has become the standard to which all barbarian ladies are measured wielding her sword and her chain-mail bikinis to equally devastating effect.

Now, on to the movie. I love cheesy '80s cinema. I really do.

Spoilers for 1985's Red SonjaCollapse )

I loved it. It was just the campy sword and sorcery movie I was hoping it would be when I got it. They really tried to hard to make it feel like a comic book, but that was only a little distracting. Poor Gedren the villainized lesbian, all she wanted was to rule the world and have some nookie with Sonja (can't say as I blame her there. Only thing wrong with Sonja was the hideous 80s mullet). And it made me want to watch the two Conan movies (starring Schwarzenegger as Conan). Fun times.

Book Meme

music: Dancing On My Own - Robyn

This is the third time I've seen this meme pop up so I figured it was about time I do it. Third time's the charm, yeah?

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people.

"The word for the day is Collection and the countersign is Treble," shouted Tindall. "Good luck!" Nick waved his hand in thanks and concentrated on ignoring the pain in his feet. Both his slippers were ripped to pieces, barely more than shreds of cloth hanging on at the heels and toes." --Across the Wall by Garth Nix

It's a collection of stories set in his 'Abhorsen' series, wonderful reads. I've been rereading all my young adult books, I'm always finding new things to love about them.

Not tagging.
