So...What Have You Been Up To Lately?

Who, me? Well, lately I've been a bit busy. Sid and Andie had their third child at the end of last month! Another boy who we will call New Baby because that is what his older brothers Conan and Mothra call him. And I find that HILARIOUS. So, I was out there visiting them. We had fun playing Wii late at night. As ever, both Sid and Andie TROUNCED me at Tetris. But I railed them both at Mario Bros. so that was a good time. And they made me watch several episodes of Blackadder and I fell in LOVE with the show and um...Rowan Atkinson. No one told me that he is stone-cold foxy in the second series of that show. It was quite shocking!

Mame has some delightful news for you all, but I'll let her tell you when she gets a chance!

I've been devouring movies, television and books lately. Here's a quick round-up (Another blog post concerning my most recent obsession will follow shortly):
  • Iron Man 2: loved it. I thought it was better than the first film! I'm not notably a Scarlet Johansson fan but that scene where she walks down that hallway, KICKING ASS almost had me in tears at it's awesomeness.
  • The Ghost Writer: it was fine. A nifty, well-crafted little thriller. Ewan McGregor showed his ass, AS USUAL. If you can square it with your conscience to go see a Roman Polanksi film, check it out.
  • Twilight and New Moon with the RiffTrax commentary. OH MY GOD. HILARITY. I highly, highly recommend them. I watched it with Sorcha and a bunch of friends and my stomach hurt from laughing.
  • Just read the latest Sookie Stackhouse book, Dead in the Family and it was awesome as usual. Could have been filthier though. Alas. I can't wait for the next season of the show.
  • I'm currently reading an awesome zombie book called Feed by Mira Grant. Love, love, LOVE it. I'm about halfway through and if you like zombies, and really. Who doesn't? Check it out.
  • Treme, Justified and Doctor Who continue to be great.
  • Michael Sheen continues to be hot.
What have you been watching/reading/devouring lately?

Justified is my new TV obsession. OMG! Timothy Olyphant is disgustingly dirty and hot.

Twilight RiffTrax was funny. New Moon Rifftrax was better...which leads me to believe Eclipse will force me to astronaut it with a Depends for that event.

Iron Man 2 rocked! Totally shocked a sequel can be that good. And Robert Downey Jr. got HOTTER in this film. Is that even possible?

Gamer. Awful sans fight scenes. Valentine's Day. Cute. Better if Dane & Cooper had freakin' made out! A Dirty Shame. One of the BEST movies I've seen all year. GO RENT IT! There are talking vaginas.

Repo & Rocky Horror...well, you know this based on the the songs I hum @ work.

Making a Genogram for my Family Therapy with family, friends, markers and glitter. My life is a train wreck happening all around me. LOL

Stopped reading anything fun. School blackened my soul once again. Will get back to it when it all ends in July.
