after dragging myself to class today (which was good - i actually did mostly ok, and did the reading, which was good, and class helped explain the reading, which was *even better*), i gave myself a friday off.
this afternoon and evening I've been doing marvel-movie marathon! Captain America, Thor, and finally my 50th viewing of the Avengers. (ok, not 50th, but seriously, like possibly 7th? 8th?). ( And so here are some thoughts that at this point can't be spoilery, right?Collapse )
Oh, and on the heels of that fannish stuff, I was mentally musing about Black Widow and how she came off to other people, and ran across this awesome review/discussion talking about black widow spinning a web around the avengers that gave me an entirely different lens to look at her actions with. Not that I think Joss is the be-all-end-all in feminist directors (because he's not) like the reviewer does, but because it brings up *really* good points about the actions Black Widow takes in the film and HOW she goes about doing it all as a human amongst super-beings.
Finally, looking for a giggly little bit of Sterek? (you know you get your Teen Wolf on), check this out:

“Yeah,” Scott says. From the perplexed look on his face, he doesn’t yet know where Stiles is going with this. “So?”
“So what if you have condom-defeating supersperm?”
YES. IT IS AS AWESOME AS YOU THINK. IN A 'NOTHINGHURTSANDEVERYTHINGISFINE' kind of way.
have you guys heard of the other non-facebook/tumblr/twitter sites in this article? cuz I haven't. made me feel old.
i miss my oven because of things like this chicken bastilla recipe (cinnamon + chicken = GOOD)
my favorite death in the last episode of sparticus was this guy's death (SPOILERS!) but I was mostly pleased with the last episode - or as pleased as I was going to be by this third season ( because really, this season had problemsCollapse )
and now that i've prattled away, i'll let you get on with your day/night/what have you.
OH, but if you're into Giles, don't forget about summer_of_giles sign ups! Or just join the comm to see what happens.
