Oh, What A Beautiful Day

Even though I have a splitting headache right now, there is much to be happy about. To begin with, there are birthdays to be acknowledged. Many, many...many years ago (I kid!) we were blessed with one Ms writteninstars. We've known each other for five years now (I know this only because we bonded over season one of 'Alias') and it seems like it has been much, much longer and I mean that in the best possible way. And I'm very disappointed we weren't able to meet up in May as was seeming to become our tradition. I hope you had a great day with the girls and kept Ms Goo from stealing the bag! ;-)

Today is also the birthday of no_detective who thanks to Hugh Laurie I have gotten the opportunity to get to know and meet! Her meta is the best and it's why I overlook her strange fascination with SGA. ;) Hopefully we'll have the opportunity to see each other again this fall.

Happy Birthday Ladies!!!

This afternoon I saw X-Men: The Last Stand for the first time (I say first because I have plans to see it again tomorrow...shut up) and I loved it. That's not to say it was without fault, I have quibbles (when don't I?), but the good outweighed the bad. A few non-spoilery comments. Hugh Jackman has a lot more screen time. I guess it comes with also being involved in the producing the film. ;) And Halle Berry can finally stop her bitching about the size of her part. Surprisingly, I didn't loathe her getting more screen time. Action sequences did not overshadow character development (though some characters faired better than others in that respect) and the film actually packed more of an emotional punch for me than it's predecessors. Oh, and DO NOT leave before the credits are over. There is one final, significant scene.

Somewhat secret message to meret, due to headache, coherent thoughts are delayed. Though I have some ideas. ;)

Also, I haven't been as active on LJ as I usually I am. I want you all to know I am keeping up, I just haven't had the time to do much commenting. Work is still extremely busy and chaotic. I have to wonder how much damage would have been done had a certain someone been allowed to stay longer. :/ And I'm also immersed in fic writing...and rewriting...and rewriting. You get the idea. One of these days life will return to what I call normal.
