Batwoman

CW is getting Batwoman and she's going to be queer, yes!!!

Kraglin

location: My Mom's Living Room
mood: worried worried
music: Late Night with Seth Meyers

Half of me is extremely excited that Kraglin and his arrow will be in the Infinity War sequel.

The other half is worried he dies horribly and that's why they won't confirm his role in Volume 3.

Can't Hardly Wait

Jun. 26th, 2018 | 10:50 pm
location: My Mom's Living Room
mood: Nostalgic
music: Animal Kingdom

This month was the 20th anniversary of Can't Hardly Wait!

There was this article online calling it the most underrated 90s comedy and I had to check the author to make sure I didn't write it because I totally agree! It also has one of the best casts ever...not all shown in the trailer either.


Fast Food Premiums

Jun. 26th, 2018 | 01:32 am
location: My Mom's Living Room
mood: nope
music: Late Night with Seth Meyers

Last Monday, I was wearing my Lost World shirt to Toys'r'us and an employee noticed it.

Employee: Wait, does that say Burger King?

Me: Yeah

Employee: Are they doing the movie now?

Me: No, this-

Employee: OH, it's from when The Lost World first came out! Way back then! That's so cool. They never do that stuff anymore.

I agreed that it was sad and I missed the watches and such. I tried to explain the difference between adult premiums and toy premiums. I wasn't sure he understood as he complained again about the Happy Meal toys not having glasses and stuff. Then, I tried to explain how Disney had wanted a healthier image for its films so they had gone to Subway and after that, it wasn't the same.

Well, he heard "healthier" and immediately started complaining about the government, how the government takes all the fun away, how no one ever has monopoly anymore.

I said I thought the internet had killed that.

Then, he went off on a tangent about how the internet and Amazon "killed this place" and mentioned the government again.

If you're an employee and you still think the internet killed your store, I can't help you. I bet he voted for Trump.

Taco Bell Infinity War Discussion

location: My Mom's Living Room
mood: Scared
music: Beyond 100 Days

Last month, I was enjoying Happy Hour at Taco Bell and charging my phone. I also like to watch people and eavesdrop on their conversations. There was a dad with several young children although he was on the phone. It was normal at first. They were both military, discussing various things like where we go to war next.*

*Yeah, if you forgot, I live in Florida. We have Central Command just about an hour away so yeah, this is normal.

Then, the dad goes, "But enough about that, it's time for the really important stuff...did you see Infinity War?

Dad goes on to explain how he doesn't feel Thanos is a villain. He was doing everything for the right reasons and only killed a few people because they failed him. Thanos even used non-lethal violence against most of his adversaries.

This thinking has become a lot more common since then, especially on Tumblr but this was the first time I heard someone talking this way and to hear it coming from one of our soldiers...it was chilling. Thankfully, the phone call recipient wasn't as agreeable to his ideas.

Ugh, next May can't come soon enough...

Don't Argue with Claires Employees

mood: depressed depressed
music: Fox 13 News

I may or may not have argued with a Claires employee over Thor: Ragnarok being darker than Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2 and how it was emotional whiplash with the comedy and horror so close together.

I might or might not have come up with way better arguments to prove my point as I walked around Rocket Fizz.

Yes, it's all true and now, I have to restrain myself in Claires from arguing with the poor employees again.

Obviously, Infinity War was way, way worse.

You remember how I saw Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and my immediate reaction was to post the .gif of Ron Weasley saying, "You're gonna suffer but you're gonna be happy about it"?

Well, this is Avengers: Infinity War:

I just want to admit that not only do I ship Zeb/Kallus but 1-3 times a month, I look to see if there are any new fanfictions with them.

If all mice are studying us as stated in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, does that mean every time a mouse helped, like in the Tailor of Gloucester or Cinderella, they were going rogue?

Even better, this is the title screen for it:


Oh yes, Norrington...



Okay, Jack Davenport doesn't get listed in the description, neither does Tom Hollander but...
The Netflix trailer has plenty of shots of Norrington in that three-way sword fight.

Guardians of the Gilmore: Cinnamon's Wake

Apr. 9th, 2018 | 11:49 pm
location: My Mom's Living Room
mood: Tired
music: Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Nothing to do with my regular Friends to the End, just a re-imagining of Gilmore Girls with Kraglin as Kirk.

Cinnamon's Wake

Cinnamon's Wake

Cinnamon Pyttzr was a beloved celebrity and a vast collector of weird shit. Not only was there a plastic green creature he'd already pocketed for the captain, but various rare food that they could get a lot of money for if it wasn't being confused with the actual food spread around for the real invited guests.

"Excuse me, ma'am, wha'cha doing?" Kraglin asked as he saw a young woman open and sample the caviar from Majesdane.

"Don't call me ma'am, only 25," she said with fire adding orange to the yellow in her hazel eyes. "Have caviar."

She was also lying. There was no way she was 25. Even Peter was way past 25 now and this girl looked like an infant compared to him, more like 20 or 22. She was taking advantage of free food and missing how to make way more money by just stealing it.

"That's not for the Wake. You could get money for that," he told her, not totally sure why.

"What? I don't need that. I have fans," she spat and twirled. He supposed her green and black outfit was popular if he followed that kind of thing. "Who are you?"

"Um, no one," Kraglin answered.

"Right, I'm Bereet. I didn't ask advice from someone with horrible haircut, like little boy," she explained and he resisted the urge to touch his finned hair. Was it really that stupid? He'd done it to look kind of like the captain...

"Will you stop eatin' that?!" he spat back. The venom was surprising to himself most of all.

"Or what?"

"I'm gonna take it," he said and took it out of her hands. The last thing he saw of her were her pink shoulders shrugging. Then, he saw Peter watching him and laughing. Something was up with Peter. Kraglin almost thought he'd try to leave. He was spending more and more time away which Krag;on could tell seemed to worry the captain more than he wanted to admit.

**************************************************************************

"Excuse me, ma'am?" Peter asked, approaching Bereet. The pantsuit fit her tits really well.

"Aren't you with jackass?" she asked, nodding at Kraglin.

"I want to apologize for his actions," he told her. Even space ladies appreciated southern charm.

"I'm listening."

"He wasn't aware that you were THE Bereet, looks like you got quite the following from your videos and obviously, you demand respect," said Peter, carefully putting his arm near her body.

"Yes," she agreed. "I want to make longer art."

"Movies!" Peter said, bringing himself closer as he over enunciated the word and used a hand gesture with it.

"Sure, those, too," she said although he didn't think she knew what he meant. The other guests mingled around, paying no attention to them.

"I have a ship where we can discuss all of that," he suggested. She looked around, shrugged and held out her hand.
Kraglin scowled and shook his head. Real women needed to be treated differently than robot hookers. He'd learn that someday. Plus, going off with Bereet would buy Peter time before they realized he'd gone to Morag without them.
