did not get sick and die in Chicago! Yay!
children of dune - leto 1
Back from birthday visit to svmadelyn and did not get sick! CHICAGO, YOU ARE OF THE WIN. IT IS A SHOCK.

(Actually, it kind of is. Like, my last two visits, I got bronchitis. Not kidding.)

So it was a blast, and we had much fun of hanging out and there was New Moon with talitha78, frostfire_14, and mcshepylove (I think?), which was okay, so you can hate Twilight and all it stands for, but you cannot hate Jacob, who did a totes gratituous shot of stripping off his shirt for us to examine his abs. And they were very nice to examine. Also, despite the fact I wasn't a huge Jacob person in teh books? The abs changed my mind. I am totes wondering why the hell Bella is not into awesome werewolves, mmkay?

Let me point out, if you are wavering--all the werewolves? Go shirtless a lot. With shorts. I mean--*hands*. Come on. Hate Twilight, but do not hate the pack. They are like awesome.

I did good deeds like a.) changing lightbulbs (it was like she was waiting for me to show up with my extra six inches of height, and I am proud to say we did not die, though seriously, we wondered), there was the Swedish bakery (oh my God, I can't even talk about it without crying, it was so much food I wanted to eat) and brunch at Jones, which was delicious beyond words. And I made my flight, which was a miracle, and also, I did not get bronchitis whihc was the best part. We also went to Hard Rock Cafe, which yes, its commercial, but it is delicious, so there.

All in all, a wonderful weekend. And Thanksgiving turkey this week! I do not see how I can stand the suspense. Happy!

ETA: We also watched the Star Trek awesomeness with celli and I think I fell in love with Kirk and Spock all over again. It was that awesome. Happy place. HAPPY TREK PLACE.

ack! I am so bummed I missed you, but I am germy and contagious and it's all for the best. But YAY GOOD VISIT YAY!

Swedish baker = best. cakes. EVER.

What I learned from New Moon (or, How to Spot a Werewolf 101): Werewolves wear cut off shorts, no matter the material.

I really enjoyed the shirt-ripping sequence as well. I vote you include it in any or all future fics.

YAY for no bronchitis! YAY for excellent lightbulb-replacing! Surely there is a joke in that!

How many fans does it take to replace a lightbulb?
One, but only if none of them have bronchitis!

ComicbookMan just told me that Spock's "Get out of the chair" was totes Quinto's in-character, unscripted order to Kirk and Pine got out of the chair, likewise in character, and Abrams kept it in, and I fell in love with Kirk and Spock all over again.

DUDE. WHOA. I mean, wow,I remember you coming home all sickly-like. But fun times and being healthy when you get home? \o/

I am totally with you on the Jacob thing.

I tried to watch twilight and I'm afraid my reaction was 'Oh my god' and to snicker. :/ I'll probably get around to watching it when I get the mood that has me mainlining B (C and the occasional D) movies.

Good to know there is Teh Pretty to look forward to.

YAY for the no sickness! \o/

Watching Star Trek multiple times on Blu-Ray has had the side effect of making me dig up all the K/S fics I like and compulsively re-read them. Like, a LOT.

Ooh, the Swedish Bakery in Andersonville? So so good. Every few months I descend upon it like a pack of wolves.

It's impossible to hate New Moon. How could you hate a movie where Jacob spends a majority of the time shirtless? Hate Bella and her suicidal tendencies, hate Edward and his predilection for acting like an emo 14-year-old girl, hate Bella for refusing Jacob when every single one of the girls I went to see it with would gladly marry him, hate Smeyer for not ending it all in threesomes — but don't hate on Jacob, his pack, or his eight-pack.
