Ménage à blah


I am SO sick of love triangles! Writers, stop. Please.

I also dislike how oblivious your heroines are to their value and desirability, the fact that you won’t stop telling us how valuable and desirable they are, and the taciturn dudes you make their love interests. (Especially when one of them is so clearly a dud propped up to afford you another, weaker, sequel.)

Can you make a few with some self esteem for once, too?

Side note: Despite the excess of these devices, I am totally (and finally) addicted to The Hunger Games. I started Catching Fire this morning. #whee

Dear Diary, Happy New Year.

Resolution #1: uggg – will obviously lose 20 lbs. #2: always put last night’s panties in the laundry basket. Equally important: will find nice sensible boyfriend and stop forming romantic attachments to any of the following: alcoholics, workoholics, sexaholics, commitment-phobics, peeping toms, megalomaniacs, emotional fuckwits, or perverts. Will especially stop fantasizing about a particular person who embodies all these things. Bridget Jones’ Diary

Fun Fact: Despite the fictional Bridget Jones’ goal, Renée Zellweger gained 25 pounds to play her.

I’ve said it all over town, 2009 can suck it. I’d like to think that’s what Bridget would say, too. After, of course, roaming her flat wrapped in her comforter for a day or two armed with a bottle of vodka and SAD FM. Eventually, she’d grab that shmancy diary of hers and expel her demons. Lesson: Sisters are doin’ it for themselves.

Buck up, those of you still a little bitter about 2009 (like me). It’s 2010 and we’ve got Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, Iron Man 2, Twilight Saga Eclipse, a kick ass Chuck, the movie Kick-Ass, and the final season of LOST!!! It’s all uphill from here. One resolution I’ve made is to track every movie I watch this year (including theatrical releases, DVDs, and movies on TV). To be honest–it’s partially motivated by a wager between myself, ZRose, and Boothboy.I’m calling it The 2010 Movie Project.

What are you excited for this year?

Love Connection: Comic-Con 2009

I'm so geeked out to be going to one of these, I don't even care what my family is saying about me right now...

We kid, we kid. (Hey, we'll see you there Thursday!)

It’s Tuesday fools! (jab jab J1)  Which means it’s only 1 day until Little Junkies head down/over to San Diego and 2 days until the o’ so exciting standing in line for hours upon hours begins!  Yesterday J1 mused about all her and Zrose are geeked out to attend, today I’m going to swoon over my wish list of events in the hopes that putting it out into the universe, ala The Secret, will result in me not only snagging a spot in one of the many ballrooms – but hopefully a decent seat as well!  I’m really hoping that my first visit down to the Con will not result in an ever so bitchy post about how Hollywood’s attempt to use San Diego as a marketing machine has ruined the Con for true fans.  What is a true fan praytell?  A true fan is one that is not attending simply to gawk at Edwar::cough::Robert Pattinson in an ill fated attempt to get him to marry you.

With that said, here’s a list of events worthy of standing in line for:

WTF Friday: The Harry Potter Problem

Junkie1, you are a fool.

I have a confession: I have never read any of the Harry Potter books, nor have I seen any of the Harry Potter movies.

Let’s back up and start here:
(a conversation between myself and Bucking the Wave‘s, Spitfire, between 3:03 and 3:13 this afternoon)

Spitfire: when are you going to HP?
me: Don’t kill me, but I think I should catch the first five
Spitfire: SHUT. UP.
me: I know! For shame, for shame…
Spitfire: have you at least read the books? how have you not seen harry fucking potter?????
me: Not seen, not read
Spitfire: i think i’m revoking your junkie card!!!! even though you invented the thing. I’M IN SHCOK.
me: lol
Spitfire: i’m still trying to understand how this could be possible and i’m coming up blank. you hate wizards?
me: No…I just missed the boat…for many years. so, I guess I missed several boats
I’ve been to Oxford and seen where they filmed it, though. Can I have half a point for that?
Spitfire: GET ON THE BOAT!!!!!! THERE’S STILL TIME!!!! OMFG!!!!!!@
you haven’t read the book but you’ve been to where they’ve filmed it. my brain just imploded by the injustice of it all!
you get 1/2 a point for sure.
me: I hate to leave you in such a state, but I have to run…If you want you can write a 5 word “WTF, Junkie1” post today
Spitfire: it would take way more than 5 words. 🙂

Apparently, it took 10 words, and here is what I got:


Allow me to explain myself… ::crickets:: … Okay. I admit it. I have no excuse for the fact that this is the pinnacle of my Harry Potter exposure:

WTF Friday: What the Fang!?


If the clothes make the man, than do the fangs make the vampire?

Those chompers have been shown in a variety of ways over the years, many as the tried and true pointy incisors. As Vampire Week comes to a close I can’t help but ponder the evolution of this critical feature. Things have changed, babies, and I have come to a pretty basic conclusion. Basically, if evil deeds are the main order of the day, they are going to have a pretty gnarly dental anatomy.  However, if they’re looking to quench the thirst via eternal love, not so much with the icky. Same goes for what I call “hungry eyes,” the kind that would put Baby in that corner and then kill her–more evil=less color.

Allow me to present my case…in point (see what I did there? “Case in point.” Get it? Puns!):
