A Dream about John Green (and pirate rats)

22 Jan

So in the dream I was in a play about pirates.

It was a really bad play and the director was awful…

But the director was JOHN GREEN.

Yeah, TFiOS John Green.

And he SUCKED at directing.

So I was like, “Dude, have you ever directed a play before?”

And he’s like, “No, I write books and make YouTube videos.”

Me: “Do you need some help, man?”

John: “Yes, please. Thank you.”

Me: “I don’t know if I should. You killed [Spoiler censor]

John: I’m sorry! I had to!

Me: I suppose I can’t be too mad. Veronica Roth killed [Spoiler censor]

John: Did you just finish Allegiant? I’m so sorry.

Me: I know… I know…

And then we kind of just nodded at each other and some rats in pirate costumes were sword fighting.

John: This wasn’t my best idea.

Me: No, it was MINE!

And then I figured out it was all a dream. And I woke up.

No wonder I get migraines.

Science, Sherlock, and Sense and Sensibility (Stream of Consciousness)

22 Jan

SCIENCE.

It’s such a broad topic of discussion.

There is biology, chemistry, archaeology, psychology, meteorology, geology, paleontology, oceanography, astronomy, physics, botany, zoology, etc, etc, etc.

So when one hears science, it could actually mean many, many things.

My favorite branch of science is psychology.

I’m bored of talking about this now.

Everything I know about cooking I learned from Hannibal Lecter. I’m sure my mum would love to hear that.

When I’m sick I watch Jane Austen movies and Doctor Who. My mum watches Fiddler on the Roof and Harry Potter.

SHERLOCK SERIES THREE!

I watched it via livestream as it aired in the UK. I have all the spoilers. Muahahaha. 

But I shan’t post them. Not yet. But I am going to talk about The Empty Hearse so close this is you haven’t seen it yet.

***Spoilers for The Empty Hearse***

Basically this is the episode:

  • PHILIP ANDERSON
  • PAPA LESTRADE
  • JOHN
  • MARY
  • SHERLOCK
  • MOLLY
  • MRS. HUDSON
  • CRACK FIC
  • SHERIARTY
  • SHERLOLLY

Let’s talk about Anderson’s beard. No, not like that. His actual beard. Facial hair. I mean, holy crap. He looks like he’s from the middle ages. wai-

And he got people killed in both.

Ouch, sorry. That was uncalled for. Maybe. But my reaction to Sherlock’s return was most like his.

LESTRADE

Can we talk about this man? This man is the most adorable man I’ve ever seen.

And he only gets more adorable in the next episode.

SORRY. SPOILERS. DAM.

Let’s move on to JAWN.

   

Oh, Jawn. You’re so terrifyingly cute.

I thought he was going to die. I was freaking out. I remember my terror. I love him so much.

He looks so sad and old. The mournstache really does age him. What I like most about this picture is that he’s about to beat the shit out of Sherlock again.

Sherlock, John…

AND MARY!

She’s so adorable. Amanda Abbington is so fantastic.

Martin and Amanda don’t even need to act. They’re so cute already.

Remember this picture.

The beginning of an awesome friendship.

Okay, I love her so much. Just you wait, Americans. Just. You. Wait.

Let’s move on to Sherlock now.

He actually surprised John by showing up in a costume saying “Not Dead!”

*Dances to Donde Estas, Yolanda while sobbing hysterically into my tea*

Can we talk about how adorable he is? Because DAMN

Very few people can look this awesome after being punched in the face.

A CUMBERBATCH FAMILY REUNION

MOLLY

Talk about character development. I only needed this episode to completely fall in love with her.

“The person who matters the most” is fabulous.

Mrs. Hudson, charming as always.

And then there is

and ALSO

Oh. My. God.

Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God.

I better stop now before I accidentally post spoilers.

One lat edit I love:

Au revoir, readers. Until next time…

But wait, there’s more!

Can we talk about how much I love Hugh Grant and Colin Firth and Jane Austen Movies?

 

Speaking of Hugh’s

Much excitement. Much MURDER.

At least I didn’t have to wait two years.

Oh yeah, and if you haven’t seen this:

So. Cute. Asdfghjkl

Well, I’m going to go drown in a pool of kittens.

My Friend Jennie Lamere, Writing Update, and Sugar Overload

10 May

Do you see this girl? This girl is none other than… JENNIE LAMERE.

If you haven’t heard of Jennie Lamere, you have now! Jennie is 17, and she just won a fabulous hacking competition by creating a Twitter app to filter spoilers out of your timeline. She calls it Twivo, but I call it the River Song app.

The coolest part about Jennie is….

I KNOW HER! Yes, it is true, I know Jennie.

I KNOW SOMEONE WIL WHEATON POSTED ABOUT ON TUMBLR.

I met Jennie when I was actually pretty young. We were in the musical Honk!  together. My first impression of Jennie was

“Wow, she’s a really pretty dancer.”

Yes, she dances too! Good looks, huge brain, and she’s one of the nicest people I know. I reconnected with Jennie this year when I started High School. Jennie was a senior and I’m a freshman. We were reacquainted when I joined the Liturgical Dance club that she was heading. She recognized me before I her, and it was fabulous to get to see her again. We were in Little Mermaid Jr.  where she showed off her bright smile and wonderful attitude while dancing better than I could ever dream to. Jennie, if you see this, thanks for dancing in front of me during “Under the Sea.” Without you, i never would have remembered that dance.

Today we had the senior farewell at school, and I admit I got a little teary that I wouldn’t be in drama with Jennie next year. She is such an inspiration on so many levels and I would be a very different person if I hadn’t met her.

Jennie, darling, I love you. I wish you the best of luck in your future. I hope we stay friends as you branch out into the world with an already impressive track record of a genius and a wonderful person.

Okay, I’m going to stop before I cry. One final picture:

As an update from my last post, I am now 40 pages into my play. I think I may be able to finish act one tonight and depending on how it goes, if I’m very lucky I’ll finish act two by Sunday. However, I think a more reasonable estimate is Tuesday for the first draft to be finished.

I actually typed so much last night that my hands were sore today. Not. Cool. But, hey! I got vitamins. Finally.

My friend Claire and her family are some of the nicest people to me. I hang around their house more than I hang around anywhere else. Mr. and Mrs. Claire’s Parents are both in the air force, so you don’t mess with them, but they’re sweethearts. A fun little story about them:

In their pantry, they had this huge industrial bag of gourmet jelly beans. They are pretty  normal people, so they like the traditional flavors: the orange ones, cherry, etc. So whenever I went over their house, I’d eat the ones they didn’t like i.e. popcorn, black licorice, cinnamon. Recently, they finished off their favorites, so today in school Claire brought me in their rejects. It was about 1/8 of the bag left.

I finished it. I ate them all. Right now I’m recovering from a sugar coma. Claire and I played a game where she would give me two and I’d eat them at the same time and then I’d guess which flavors they were. It was actually really gross, but I’m still reigning champion. My mouth tastes like black licorice and winning.

Time to keep writing. For anyone who actually reads this, thank you for putting up with my madness.

Au revoir!
