Tumblr? Undecided.

I miss you guys. If you've migrated to tumblr, want to be friends there, too? I'm trademarkblue over there, and I have mixed feelings about the format. I hate that you can't comment on something without reblogging it. You then find yourself with a series of repeated chunks of text on your page, just for the sake of carrying on a conversation with someone...

But there is activity over there, at least.

*giant group squish*

Is this thing on?

So I finally logged into my account this morning, after who knows how long, and my app tells me there is literally nothing in my friends feed. What? Is my app playing a joke on me? Or are you guys really all gone? Like, you've all vanished!

Someone send up a flare!

I'm so late to the Hunger Games party, but...

...who has read those books and what did you think, overall? I think the culmination of my crush on Jennifer Lawrence, added on to the fact that several of my friends have been extras in the films, and then piled atop the fact that the most recent film ended with a cliffhanger that made me realize I was sort of shipping Katniss and Peeta... Well, all that compounded, and I had a few Audible credits, so I worked through the series over a couple of weeks and I have thoughts! So many!

What about you guys? Likes? Dislikes?

A few things

What's been happening...

1. So I know I'm way behind, but is anybody else obsessed with I'm Alan Partridge?? It's so great. We watched Knowing Me, Knowing You several years ago and just got around to this treat. I actually wept from laughing on episode 2 or 3 from series 1... Alan in bed with the lady from his office...

2. This picture.

...which has been my inspirational iPhone background for quite a while now.

3. Attempting and failing to have our house ready for a party one year since purchasing it. That deadline passed in April. Oops.

4. This picture.

I just love him. More than I should at this point.

My response to The Article

So far, it's been lots of grumbling... and comfort Oreos.

I will keep you posted if I progress to eating cake frosting directly from the jar...

So. Is gruyere cheese really supposed to be this salty?? I mean I've had gruyere before, surely, but this particular one I just tried pretty much tastes like a smoky, cheese flavoured slice of congealed salt...

I realize this is pretty much a oncelikeshari exclusive post...

But really.

Why won't the post office deliver a t-shirt to my house without me having to be there to sign for it?

Why does filming a horror movie for 12 hours on a Sunday make me feel like I have strep throat on Monday?

Why are things that used to be fun kind of feeling like uncomfortable chores?

Why did I think lifting 50lbs at the gym, with my non-existent chest muscles, was a good plan?

Why does my iPhone know to autocorrect "sbyialf" to "actually" but it can't handle "haga" to "haha"? It really thinks "haga" is a thing...

Why did someone hire Evan Rachel Wood to speak in a very poor Russian accent for that Charlie Countryman film?

I'm gonna go get myself some coffee...

Oh guh, I've been bad at LJ-ing...

So many things right now, I'm not sure what to post!

Rupert's been on stage and I'm stuck in America and I basically weep with happy every time anything is posted anywhere about it because he looks perfect and people love him and I'm so excited for him and the whole thing happened so fast... *sniff*

Dan's about to be in 7 million films. And Rupert's got a chunk coming out, too, and I just need a full weekend with nothing to do but look at him (and Dan) in all the moments I've missed.

And then, this photo.

His HANDS and EYES. *cant blink*

Guys, I miss you. *LJ group hug*

Finally, an LJ app on the iPhone I just bought secondhand. Maybe it'll stick this time, the whole being back on LJ thing :)

Friends only...

So I'm in the process of making my journal friends only, including past entries. If you want to read, become my friend :) Just letting everybody know in case someone isn't on my flist but wants to continue to read my journal.

UPDATE: Have to add something HP related here... Hm. Anybody have a sugar quill in Orlando?? They apparently turn your mouth all inky! Awesome :)

Scotland vs. Orlando

Well, I'm finally back from Edinburgh where I spent the last (absolutely fantastic) week. I saw Wild Target, ate twice at the cafe where Harry Potter began, RANDOMLY ran into my favourite musician at an art college, and drank some of the best mocha I've ever had. I watched the UK's version of reality TV during the few short dark hours of the night, got to wear light sweaters in the evenings, got an ice cream from a van that could have been Rupert's only it was white, and ate quiche after quiche after quiche...

That all sounds just grand, and yeah, I'm so glad I went. It was amazing, I want to move there, everyone was so lovely, the weather was brilliant...


I get back home and what do I discover...

While I've been off enjoying a milder climate and smiling as Rupert Grint and Martin Freeman show up on the cinema screen simultaneously...

...Orlando has been kicking everything else's ass! Come on, guys!

Rupert Grint and Daniel Radcliffe enjoyed some Butterbeer in Harry Potter land.
Rupert and Oliver Phelps sang karaoke.
All sorts of news items, interviews and pictures surfaced online.

The only comfort I can take in all of this is from this image:

Imagine sweating to death...

...and from the fact that I made it back in time for the unveiling of the new trailer on Monday.

So, did anyone go to the Grand Opening??
