A Sincere Apology

Guys — I admit it. I’m a horrible person. I’ve abandoned you for so long, and for that, I am truly sorry. But so many wonderful things have happened since I last posted that I don’t even know where to begin. I suppose I’ll just make a list. I’m really good at lists.

• I got to meet one of my online friends. Yup! You heard me — best day EVER!! We met at a Rick Riordan conference, which brings me to the next point.

• I got to see Rick Riordan in person. I also got a signed copy of The House of Hades, which I am not allowed to give spoilers on until November 1st. Sorry!

• I signed up for NaNoWriMo. Some of you may know what this is, but for those who don’t, don’t worry. I’ll make a full post on this topic next week.

• I started a group fanfiction. I’ll post it here, and on my other blogs chapter by chapter.

• I started a new blog. It’s a website with clean fanfics, for those of y’all who don’t approve of M ratings. (Like me.)

• I fell in love with Once Upon a Time — the TV show. If anyone wants to fangirl over Rumple, you know where to find me.

• I got a new computer. My old laptop finally croaked, so I got a new one. It’s that new Windows 8 operating system, so we have a love / hate relationship.

• I made a new Pinterest account. My old one just got too big, so I made a new one. I’m starting over, guys!

A lot of other stuff has happened, too, but that’s pretty much the highlights. So . . . expect more posts from now on. Love y’all!

NEW Official Trailer: Disney’s “Frozen”

Frozen trailer!

Fangirling Central

The official trailer for Frozen has arrived and it is EPIC-ally cute!

PHqOTCtUwml8ut_1_mFrozen is an animated comedy from Walt Disney Animation Studios, the makers of Tangled and so many more awesome films and is loosely based on the Hans Christian Anderson’s fairy tale The Snow Queen. The film stars the voices of Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars) as lead heroine Anna; Alan Tudyk (Suburgatory and the original British comedy Death at a Funeral) as the Duke of Weselton; Jonathan Groff (Glee) as mountain man Kristoff, Josh Gad (21 and Jobs) as Olaf the snowman and Idina Menzel (Enchanted and Glee) as Elsa, the Snow Queen and Anna’s elder sister.

The synopsis on IMDB reads as follows,

Fearless optimist Anna teams up with Kristoff in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race…

My Weirdness

Someone suggested that it would be a good idea to let you guys get to know me. I’d put a picture of myself on this post, but there’s just so many weirdos out there that I don’t really want to right now. (Not that I think y’all are creepers — you’re weird in a good way.) I hope you understand. I have decided though, to do a post that’s all about me, not Loki, for once.

Update on my life.

Found these amazing little action figures at the mall. Also, I updated to iOS 7 — I’ll write a full post on that later. And I found an amazing website where you can watch ALL the Doctor Who episodes for free. I’ll put that on here tomorrow. Oh yeah! I converted my BF to a Whovian, and my sister to a Loki fan. So . . . PARTY TIME!!

Star Trek : Into Darkness

So I went ahead and bought Star Trek : Into Darkness, and let me tell you, it was worth every single freakin’ penny. I thought Benedict Cumberbatch was cool before, but now he is . . . what’s the word . . . oh right! AWESOME. I’ve been a Trekkie for three years now, going on four, but this just made it like ten times better. Khan made me sob almost cry on several occasions — if you’ve seen the movie, you know which ones I’m talking about — if you haven’t, “Spoilers!”

Below is my take on the Star Trek insignia.

Best. Day. Ever!

Today started pretty good anyway, mainly because Piper let me sleep all the way through the night, even if she does get up at 6:00 on the dot every morning. She doesn’t quite get the concept of weekends yet. As an added benefit, though, she’s completely potty-pad trained now. We got her ten-week booster shots this afternoon too, and . . . right, back to the subject. (Remember, guys, they are called ramblings!)

So, anyway, Mum took me and my little sis to supper, then we had to go grocery shopping. So I called up my dad at Walmart, ’cause the Star Trek : Into Darkness DVD was sitting out on the shelf for only $19. He said yes, so I brought my new baby home. Can’t wait to see it!

The day couldn’t get any better, right? Guess again! I was going through the aisles, what suddenly I hear a familiar song. And whaddya know, my favorite song was on — 500 Miles. I listened a little closer, and DAVID TENNANT’S WONDERFUL SCOTTISH ACCENT!!! Needless to say, I fangirled a little bit LOT, and Mum started flipping out, ’cause I was singing it in the middle of the store. But oh well, it was so amazing! And I’m really sorry for the caps, but that’s how excited I was!

So . . . yeah. Great day.
