untwist your heart
let it breathe
let it free
vast in this darkness
a whisper of laughter
new and alive
Wizard World Sacramento Comic Con – Yesterday we attended the last day of the Sacramento Comic Con. It was MADNESS! But it was fun! Chris Hemsworth was there but I didn’t even get a glimpse of him. Oh bother. We even stood in line for his Q&A but we didn’t make it into the room. At least we tried, eh?
So many people were in attendance! The aisles were so crowded when we arrived. We made our rounds a few times, saw many Funko figures (I didn’t realize there are Supernatural ones?! Couldn’t find Dean!), and I finally found a t-shirt to buy– Eureka! (No seriously, a Eureka t-shirt.)
sometimes you must
understand you have no moves
listen with your heart
let it all just fade
if only for this moment
vanity can have no play
arise from the despair
next time comes your turn
300 Rise of an Empire… Let’s get the fangirl stuff out of the way first– SULLY!!! Whatever work he did to get that six pack paid off because he looked damn good. I think I’ll always like him in a some kind of scruff or even beard. He looked great, sounded different (I’m used to his Aussie or American but the English accent threw me off a bit), and for me, provided enough gravitas to his character… The movie itself was violent and bloody, dark and stylish, crazy and grand. I liked it. I love that the two women in the movie were freakin’ kick ass. Lena Headey did a great job as the binding voice between the first movie and this one and her actual scenes were very well done. Eva Green was AMAZING as Artemisia. She was driven and focused with such a wonderful touch of darkness and determination. Simply fantastic… The action sequences were artful and bloody with a lot of slow motion shots. Blood and dirt flew this way and that and it was rather magnificent… We saw the movie in 2D and the sound SUCKED hard in our auditorium. The dialogue was subdued but the background music and noise were loud. It’s a bit sad that a relatively new theatre (recently bought by AMC from Rave) has such shoddy equipment. Or perhaps the projectionist didn’t adjust the sound correctly? I’m not going to fault the movie for the way that auditorium sounded but it was slightly distracting… All in all, I’m very glad to have seen 300 Rise of an Empire. Sully was great, Eva Green was terrific, and the movie itself was a buffet of great effects. The plot was pretty straightforward but don’t expect Shakespeare or the like, although the words were prettily done enough. I’d see it again if I had the means. And you should see it if you like those kinds of movies.
Now, off to Wizard World we go!
seduction’s best bet
unfettered and free
loose to a frenzy
invigorating yet sweet
vanishing in an instant
a bliss unmatched
next to forever
I went to sleep after watching my Crusaders win and woke up in time to watch the Bulls live. I LOVE SUPER RUGBY SEASON!!! I feel spoiled being able to watch the boys down under play.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my very dear husband!!! Most of the time we’re the same age but today and until my birthday, we’re not. LOL I’m a lucky lady to have such a good man as my husband. Bummer he had to work today but hopefully he’ll be off soon and we can go see 300 Rise of an Empire.
I spent some of the late morning reading the twitter ramblings of a “fan” of one of the actors I follow on twitter. OH EM GEE. I’ve borne witness to some online nutters but this one is just flat out crazy. Like crazy enough to incite PITY. This person well and truly believes that a relationship exists between her and this particular actor. Almost ALL her tweets are directed at him and she insists that they have a relationship. It’s rather stunning. I’m not sure if it’s just an exercise in trolling or if she truly believes her words. Damn, people on the internet are so INTERESTING!
lace my dreams with
light and longing
never ending chaos
My Crusaders are playing right now. They’re SO CLOSE to scoring right now but the Stormers’ defense is like a freakin’ wall right now! COME ON!… Now they’re looking at the last breakdown. Oh gee.
We didn’t go to the movies tonight. We’re going tomorrow night. MUST SEE SULLY with his six pack! No, that’s not the only reason I want to see the movie. Not really. But it’s a great incentive. I promise to write my thoughts on the movie after I see it and not just about Sully… Tomorrow is also the husband’s birthday! Oh, if I stay awake until midnight, I can FB him. LOL… Sunday we’re going to Wizard World Sacramento Comic Con. CHRIS HEMSWORTH is going to be there!!! I won’t get to get a picture with him (his photo op price is ASGARDIAN aka out of this world) but he will have a Q & A or talking session, so we’ll likely sit in on that. It’ll just be awesome to be in the same room as him. LOL I’d love to run into him on the floor but I’m sure he’ll be surrounded by security or something…
I had a crazy full day of work today and my boss wasn’t even there the whole day! I had letters to print, labels to print then stick on envelopes. Then I had to fold the letters and put them in the envelopes then run them all through the postage machine. I did nearly two hundred letters and envelopes. Good times!
Damn, the Stormers tied it. 3 all. Bah. Almost half time.
I’m still disheartened by this Joe Manganiello twitter thing. Bah.
I don’t feel like writing a poem right now. I feel like venting just a tiny bit about something that ultimately means nothing but nonetheless bothers the hell out of me.
I can’t follow Joe Manganiello on Twitter.
I’m not exactly sure why. If you go through my Twitter feed, you’d hardly call it confrontational or stalker-ish. In fact, I don’t mention Joe that often. He fell off of my Follow Friday list awhile back and since True Blood isn’t on right now, I don’t just randomly mention him. The last time I remember mentioning him was in regards to still liking him but now Laura Vandervoort is my favorite werewolf (she’s the main gal on Bitten).
I was going to mention him again today (again in relation to the whole werewolf thing) but when I started typing his Twitter name, it didn’t automatically come up as it should if I’m following him. Curious, I checked out his Twitter URL and found that I was not following him. WTH? So of course I clicked the “follow” link and got this:
I’m not going to lie to you, I felt a little gut punched when I read that. I’m a good fangirl, I don’t stalk unnecessarily, I don’t badmouth people on Twitter, I’m supportive. So what in the world did I do to get blocked from following Joe Manganiello?! Did I say some crazy thing that actually caught his attention and he was so disgusted/put off/horrified that he just had to make sure to never see my Twitter name again? If so, what the hell did I say?!
I can’t ask him (or the account) because if I’m blocked from following him I’m guessing anything I post to him would go unseen. And if my Twitter friends post to him but mention me too, can he see it? So is it a glitch perhaps? I’ve checked on a few of the other people I follow and everything looks okay. I suppose if I didn’t care in the slightest about Joe, then I’d just shrug this off and be done with it. But I do like him and I like being able to follow his tweets but for some reason I cannot fathom, I’ve been blocked.
In the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t matter. I know this. And if suddenly I’m no longer blocked (because you know I’m going to keep checking for awhile), I don’t even know if I want to follow him again without explanation. And I’m never going to get it. And I’ll probably be forever banned.
If I ever meet him, I’ll ask him why he blocked me. If it’s his “people” then I’d definitely like to know what the hell I supposedly did to get blocked. If it was a deliberate act of blocking, then that’s just a bunch of crap. And if it’s just a glitch, I hope it rights itself soon. Otherwise, I will think it was deliberate on someone’s part…
If I were younger and didn’t need sleep, I’d go to the movies tonight and see Sully on the big screen. I’ve read some reviews and they’ve not been very flattering (but I think I knew it would be that way a long time ago). I’m still going to spend my hard earned cash to see one of my favorite guys on the big screen.
I started my day at the endodontics office. My tooth has a fracture and it has to come out. I’m bummed but I’m glad I know what’s wrong. Still, ALAS!
until I laugh
vow only me
night and day
I hope to see this movie on Friday. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone to a movie on opening night. So why not one with Sully? Is it bad that I just like going to movies that have my fellas? I don’t think it’s bad. Maybe.
I have had my LJ (valeriejoy.livejournal.com, if you’re reading this at kiari.com) since 2004. TEN YEARS! WOWSWERS! I’m glad it’s still out there and I can read my old posts. So many posts! It’s neat to pick a random day from the past ten years and read what I wrote…
I went to the dentist yesterday and tomorrow first thing in the morning I have an appointment for a consultation. My tooth feels so much better but I guess we need to figure out what caused the pain. I’m mostly dreading the walk in the morning…
I changed my twitter profile header to a new split picture of Kitsch and Cavill. Nice, right?
