I saw a preview online for the next Pirates movie, and I nearly died. I want May to come so bad it hurts. Then, of course, is July, with the Order of the Phoenix movie and THE LAST FREAKING HARRY POTTER BOOK. Summer is going to rock so hard.
I've started where I left off in the New Jedi Order, I think. It just sort of happened. Fine time too, when I won't have time to read for the next eleven weeks.
I, by the way, have pants that fit and new blue shoes that are bouncy so I can do swordfighting class and not get blisters or trip over my feet.
Two and a half gorram weeks until Stargate and you have no idea how excited I am.
My video is to Flogging Molly's "Seven Deadly Sins" and I don't normally like to brag, but I think I outdid myself. Even though the song is very short, it was hard to make because it moves so damn fast. But it was wicked fun.
One week till Stargate!
Sam comes home in one week and his plane is supposed to get in sometime around 8 in the morning (we think), which means I'll be getting up in the neighborhood of oh-god-thirty. He's also demanding that we take him to Chipotle's as soon as humanly possible. I can't imagine he's had a decent burrito in about ten months. And I will be surprised if we aren't having pizza for dinner that night. I hope the shirt I got fits him.
One of the reasons I was so keen to see the midnight showing of PotC is that as late as it is, it's unlikely there will be many small children there. I'm guessing much of the audience will be people around my age, who can stay up that late. And hopefully this trip to the theater won't involve the people in the row behind us putting their feet on the seats and acting stupid. There was a group several rows behind us who, by the sound of their conversation, I would definitely get along with (they sounded like fellow geeks). I would rather have sat in front of them. (Or joined them.) Anyway, I hope there are lots of people there. Movies are fun with a full audience.
Reasons why I'm looking forward to July:
No more job!
Pirates of the Caribbean!
My brother comes home!
New Seasons of Stargate Sg-1 and Atlantis!
Superman Returns! (okay, it comes out June 30 but I work that night for the last time at the theater)
I WANT to know why Jack and Will seem to be fighting each other in the Dead Man's Chest preview. A lovers' quarrell, probably. I wish. Also I saw a nice preview of Superman Returns and it looks awesome. I didn't see James Marsden in it, but he's fourth on the list at IMDb so he probably has more screen time and hopefully a lot less dying. Bryan Singer knows how to treat him right. And this Tuesday is The Omen! I hope David Thewlis' character doesn't go the way of the original and get his head lopped off.
I think I'll start reading the Harry Potter series again because I'm kind of in a boredom slump. The last time I read them all, there were only four. I found out the fifth movie's coming out in July of next year, so i won't be able to wear my scarf. Assuming my mother finished it by then (she'd have to find it first). It'll have to be my GOF poster t-shirt.
The preview of POTC: Dead Man's Chest made me squirm with excitement and fangirlish giddiness. I feel like watching all my Orlando Bloom movies to quell my anticipation. I STILL don't have Kingdom of Heaven ... don't know how that happened. I sort of made it my goal once to watch every one of his movies in the theater ... but then Ned Kelly didn't come out in my area, and I missed Elizabethtown, and the foreign stuff doesn't make it to theaters here. But to miss Pirates of the Caribbean, I will have to suffer serious bodily harm. Even so, the theater is right across the highway from the hospital.
