Back from Comic Con!

OK, OK, I was actually back Sunday, but I've spent almost all of my time since then editing photos & queuing them on Tumblr. You can check out my photos tag; currently going is the Agent Carter panel. I've set the queue to post 50 times a day, but it still won't be finished until Thursday morning!

I have photos up from the Super Asian America panel (including Chloe Bennet!), Hand of God, The Player (Philip Winchester & Wesley Snipes), Falling Skies, & The 100, as well as a few lil posts of Hannibal, Gravity Falls, The Last Ship, Outlander, The Big Bang Theory, & Minority Report. In the queue are the rest of Agent Carter, Agents of SHIELD, & iZombie!

It's the middle of summer, sooooo.... of course I am stressing about a work thing! XD ffffffCollapse )

holy smokes!

In the past few weeks, I've seen several fics that have a character getting a concussion, and immediately starting a romantic relationship with someone, and it really bothers me. I hope it is not a new trend. I get that hurt/comfort is a thing, but probably-impaired cognitive abilities = not really able to give consent to sexual activity. oldmanshakesfistatcloud.gif

I've been voraciously consuming media -- well, tv -- since I've gotten out of work. I mentioned that I tried The 100 at my sister's house, but couldn't get through it. Little sis & I finally slogged our way through the last few episodes of Sense8 last night. I don't think we'll be watching if there is a season 2. We probably wouldn't have finished at all, except we knew there were only 12 episodes. I also gave Banshee a pretty good shot; I watched 5 episodes before deciding the show wasn't for me. However, at jadeleopard's recommendation, I watched Granite Flats, which I adored.

So I guess that might be a trend in the media I'm consuming lately... maybe since Pacific Rim. Stuff that tries so hard to be 'adult' and 'edgy' is often boring and/or gross to me, while I'm loving kids' shows & family TV like Wolfblood and Granite Flats. I mean, I've always liked all kinds of media, but lately it seems like all the 'gritty realism' shows & stuff like that, I've just been rejecting. That's kind of why I've been afraid to try Daredevil, even though it's pretty universally adored.

Sis is also getting bored of Star Trek (we're still in S1 of TOS right now), and she is anxious to get on to Voyager (she loves Red in OitNB). But I want to watch in order. :( Would it be weird to go straight from TOS to Voyager???

It's technically Tuesday already, so I can officially say I'm going to Comic Con TOMORROW, OMG! :D

Sacramento Visit!

I'm off to visit my sister in Sacramento for a week! Hopefully I'll have some cute pics to share when I get back!

Day from hell at work. 4 kids from the two upper grade classes got in a brawl during morning recess (well, okay, one kid got pissed & mowed through 3 others). We had to call one kid's guardian because he was bitten 3 times. And because it was the 3rd-to-last day at school, there were all sorts of events & whatnot going on -- the principal was in an awards assembly at the time. The teacher in one of the two other classes called me later (I was alone in our class with a student who had hit & kicked another student on the way to an awards assembly!) because she heard the aide from the other class on the walkie talkie radioing for help (hahahaha, there was none to be had). Another student yelled at me basically all recess long & refused to follow directions. At least a parent sent cakes to the school. Delicious. Two days left to go! And they are minimum days!

We had a power surge at our house yesterday, and apparently our wireless router was a casualty. I've hooked my dad's laptop directly into the modem, and I'm typing this on a rickety little table in the middle of our already overfull dining room. Sis & I miss Netflix already!

This school year seemed to drag on, and I've only realized just tonight that I only have 9 work days left! I've got a line on a potential baby-sitting job (I've gone out to meet the kids & everything), so hopefully that pans out well over the summer. (I mean, I really, really hope it does, because I need money! It's a good thing I did pick up the extra pay for Outdoor Ed this year, because I haven't had much overtime offered to me -- which is BS because damn the other 2 classes really needed more support.)

And then a week after that, I'm flying up to Sacramento for a week for my sister's birthday! I'm really looking forward to that! She's taking several days off work, so this will be the most time I've been able to spend with her for years. We might go to Lake Tahoe for a couple nights.

In case you don't follow me on Tumblr, let me take a sec to tell you about my shiny new fandom obsession, Wolfblood. It's this unassuming half-hour British kids' show, and it's amazing. It had me from the very first scene, which subverts a common horror-film trope in a cool way. Lycanthropy is used as a device to tell a coming-of-age story that doesn't dumb down any complex issues. It's at times drama, comedy, horror, fantasy, and even a bit sci-fi in S3. Almost all of the characters are brilliantly well-rounded and realistic (most of the exceptions are the villain-of-the-week types, which can get a bit charicature-y), even the ones who don't appear so at first. My favorite thing about it is (you know me) the wide variety of female characters it has -- it's just so exciting to see a show that's telling girls that leadership doesn't have to look like x, that friendship doesn't have to look like y, that intelligence doesn't have to look like z, etc. S1-3 are available streaming on Netflix, and S4 is being written now! I bought the DVDs, you guys. I can't even remember the last time I bought a DVD for anything else. (Like, I think the most recent DVD I have otherwise is Pacific Rim, and that was a present given to me.) For some reason, they were cheaper than purchasing downloads. O___o

I"ve so many scattered thoughts I"m not sure where to begin.Collapse )

My great uncle is my grandma's only surviving sibling, and they haven't seen each other in 8 months because neither of them drive on freeways any more, and they live about 4 hours apart. So my mom has been planning for a couple weeks to drive my grandma down to see him this weekend, because his 89th birthday is on the 5th.

Only... he told them not to come! He says he's not feeling sick or anything, just. Not to come.

So my uncle (who has been my great uncle's traveling companion on a few vacations, so he's a bit closer to him than my mom) has decided that he is going to drive my grandma down -- uninvited -- tomorrow, anyway.

My mom's family is so weird. Like, aggressively weird.

my kind of ship meme
Snagged from reeby10:

Meme for people who ship almost everyone:
List 15 fandoms, and ask your friends list to pick one fandom and guess 3 ships from that fandom that you do not, would not, and have never shipped, not even a little.

If someone manages to get all three right, then you can write them a 3-sentence fic about a pairing you actually do like.

1. Agents of SHIELD
2. MCU
3. iZombie
4. Grimm
5. Psych
6. Graceland
7. Pushing Daisies
8. The Middleman
9. Hannibal
10. Roswell
11. Buffyverse
12. Veronica Mars
13. Stargate: Atlantis
14. Eureka
15. Dollhouse
