Random Saturday Musings

Published September 22, 2012 by Malia

-So, I’ve been putting it off, but I’m finally getting around to “watching” (actually, I’ve got the video on, but I’m pretty much listening to it) the video from the Empire Comic-Con of the panel of voice actors reading Star Wars.  Not only are they doing the reading in the voices that they’ve performed, but also in the voices of people like William Shatner, George Takei, and Christopher Walken.  Also, Poof and Twilight Sparkle as Han Solo.  The video is definitely worth a viewing, but it is really long (also, some of the language is really inappropriate). 

-I’ve started working on a baby blanket for my supervisor at work.  She’s due in December, and since the last time I made this kind of blanket it only took me a couple of days so I should get this done in plenty of time.

Avengers comes out this week!

-My art “gallery” is growing.  

-It’s chilly, but  the sun is shining which makes it seem less sad that the season is changing.

-I’m so excited for the return of Big Bang Theory!

-It’s Baggins birthday weekend!

-Also, they put out a new trailer for The Hobbit.  I’m can’t wait to see the movie!

-Cappuccino sounds good right now.

-Why do kids up here not wear helmets when riding motorcycles or motorized scooters?

-Am I the only one who will automatically say (in a British accent), “Harriet Jones, Prime Minister.  I know”  when watching something and all of a sudden I realize that Penelope Wilton is in it?

-Who else wants to have a LOTR EE marathon on 9/22 to celebrate Bilbo & Frodo’s birthdays?

-Wouldn’t it be great to be able to teleport?

-Doesn’t the idea of Candy Corn Oreos just make you want to gag?

-Why do girls seem to think that tights are the same thing as pants?

-Doesn’t Gravity Falls seem like it’s not really a kid’s show?

-Wasn’t the Google logo amazing and  fun today?


The Fun of Getting Older

Published August 10, 2012 by Malia

This afternoon I was talking with my friend (the one with the adorable baby) and she mentioned how excited she is for The Hobbit.  I’m equally excited, and this led to the conversation of how amazingly fun it’d be to go to the midnight release.  It’d be awesome to see people in their costumes, and to be in the theater hearing people clap and cheer anytime there’s anything in the movie that funny or amazing.  Unfortunately, once you get past 25, going to a midnight movie becomes something that you don’t bounce back from easily.  Sure, it’s no big deal staying up until midnight, but usually the movie lasts at least two hours (and if Lord of the Rings is any indicator, Hobbit will be at least three hours).  This means that if you have to be anywhere first thing in the morning, you will get limited sleep which will severely limit your functionality.  This isn’t a terrible thing, but I’ve discovered that most bosses don’t appreciate it if you come to work as a zombie on a day that’s not Halloween.  Well, there’s still a few months to decide, and whether I see it at midnight or a few days later, I can’t wait!
