I <3 the Internet  
It's true. I was just saying in chat how much I love the internet, and I thought it would be nice to share that on here. I <3 the internet because it gives us each other and gives us the ability to share our stories and art with people who enjoy them. It also gives us 24/7 access to the wonder of Matt's ass, Stephen Amell's abs, Kristen Bell's adorable everything, Kaner's stickhandling (not a euphemism), Stiles' hands, Baby Groot! So much awesomeness made available by the internet. :D

Hump Day Hellos  
*waves sheepishly*

I was too afraid to look and see when I last posted; I know it's been a while. Thanksgiving week was taken up by family time, and then I had a whole two days to myself before I jetted off to LA for work. I'm flying back home today, and then there will be a few days before the next round of holiday traveling.

My muse has kind of gone into hibernation, but I plan to force him out on the plane today to keep me entertained and write the Advent fic that I haven't managed to really get going. I've worked on it when I had some time the last couple of weekends but the story got too complicated in my mind, so I'm taking it back to basics.

Other than that, I've just been working a lot. I'm staying with a friend and her internet was down for the last week, so I feel like I've been completely disconnected from everything. :( I'll have to catch up on my "sick" day tomorrow :D

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! *HUGS*

Friday Eve!  
Happy Friday Eve everyone!

I'm heading out of town tomorrow so I will be even more MIA than usual. Speaking of, sorry for the MIA-ness lately. I may be cheating on WC fandom a little, but it's just a fling, I swear. As soon as I work through all of the h/c fics that fandom *cough*teenwolf*cough* has to offer, I'm sure I'll be over it. :)

I really should get back to work now. I just don't want to.

Oh! Channing Tatum said over at MTV News that MMXXL will contain a lot more bromance and a lot more of the guys, which is really all I wanted to hear. It legitimately makes me excited for a movie I was barely planning on seeing.

Boyhood  
I have been wanting to see Boyhood since I heard about it last month, so I drove down to Hollywood today because it was only playing down there and one other spot somewhere else in the city. I normally don't drive to Hollywood, but it wasn't far off the freeway and I didn't have to go near Hollywood & Highland (aka traffic nightmare central).

If you don't know, Boyhood is a movie by Richard Linklater, which he filmed over a period of twelve years. One week out of each year was spent filming the movie, so you get to see the young boy and girl grow from children to adults. It also stars Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette. It's a really interesting idea (Linklater often does really cool things with his films), and it turned out amazing.

Movie Summary by IFC Films (via IMDB.com) )

I really enjoyed it, and I highly recommend it. It's really fascinating watching all of the characters grow and change through the years. The story is pretty common, sadly - the parents aren't together, and the mother makes some very questionable life choices, but I love watching families on-screen. The interaction between siblings and parent-child are all very fascinating to me.

Alone At Last!  
So... I'm alone at last. No parents in my condo, no trips to pack for, nothing needs immediate attention. This naturally means that I'm having a hard time getting myself motivated despite the fact that I'm imposing a deadline on myself to finish the AU meme prompts tonight so that I can do a Timestamp Meme.

*hugs the weekend close and never wants to let go*

A Few Things...  
Hi Friends :)

I'm off to LA tomorrow for about 10 days, so I won't be around as much as usual. I won't be as quick with the Normal Heart links or news, so I suggest checking out the The Normal Heart Movie Tumblr. I know most don't like Tumblr, but this one is a great source of news, info, and gifs about the movie.

If you have a public library card, you should check out their website and see if they give you access to e-mags through Zinio. I download Mental Floss and a couple of other things for free there every month, and I get the gossip mags for flights from them too. I just found out tonight that my local library has Out available for free from Zinio. They don't have Matt's issue up yet, but it's something to look forward to. And for free! :)

I'm still working on my AU meme prompts. I was trying to do one a night, but I got sidetracked tonight by the last minute packing/freaking out that I'm forgetting something. I will continue to work on them and post them - there are three up so far - and I'll do a roundup post when I'm finished.

I'm finding it utterly impossible to use LJ on my iPad. It keeps trying to force me to use the new layout every time I have to sign in and it looks absolutely wretched in the mobile version of Chrome. Ugh. So much for being sneaky at work with the LJ.

I hope everyone has a great week! *HUGS*
