First things first. Thor :The Dark World.

I can hardly wait. I booked for tomorrow night instead of tonight (don't ask me why) so we're off to see it then. I am so looking forward to this and have only seen two trailers. I've avoided all the extra TV spots, behind the scenes, extra scenes etc etc as best I can,  so there is some film left to see anew. I have a good feeling about this one. But I do know I am easy to please so there is that. I shall probably see it once more on my own after the shock wears off.

Secondly my short trip to London was super fun. The weather held out and both 'events' were fabulous. I only wish I had time for more.So what happened at Marvel Meet the FilmMakers )
And then with J to the London Film Festival Cult Gala to seeOnly Lovers Left Alive )
And if that wasn't enough this weekend I was in Birmingham for Hallowhedon 5 - A fun time was had by all. I'm going to save that for another post but in the meantime here's a teaser or two

I am just sifting through the remaining photos and I will be back with a post.

So I currently have two more ways to suck huge chunks of time out of my day.

Mark the reviewer  'Mark Watches' (currently reviewing BtVS S4 & just starting on AtS S1) and now  'Mark Reads' - A Song of Ice and Fire(I'll probably go onto his other book reviews for those I have read myself)

I love Mark's capslock enthusiam for the show  and general flailing, he'd not seen any of it before now,  so it is wonderful reading the predictions and his reactions to those 'huge' moments. Sometimes he has great love for overlooked episodes and it makes me reassess my own opinion of them. It's a little like discovering the slayerverse  all over again and I never fail to want to rewatch the episode he has just reviewed.   Can't  wait to see what he makes of AtS.  Then I spotted he also wrote book reviews, I am now reading those. 

The other time -suck is Tumblr.  There are some insanely pretty Avengers art/gifs being posted I find totally irresistable, plus a few hilarious banners. One this morning had us both rolling around the office in hysterics almost forgetting to breathe. Plus cat gifs.  I don't feel very creative on tumblr though, just part of a huge machine that clicks and reblogs everyone else's pretty.  I have put up select pieces of original art and the odd con photo every now and then.

I guess it's something to do while I rip source and wait for Book Five of ASOIAF to turn up.

I opened a Tumblr account thingie late last year and I've only just started posting to it. Feel sure I'm doing it wrong, but who knows.  A bit like Billy no mates right now but I'm curious as to who here also posts there. Do tell.

And if anyone has any hints on how to use, how to make those shiny gifs etc let me know. I'm at randomfandom

So I almost managed it. Escape the family head cold throughout the holiday time but it caught up with me on New Year's Eve. Not early enough to stop me drinking/celebrating/hootenannying  with the furious five (my youngest brother, sister in law and their three kids)  wreck our house and have a good time. Mum and my eldest brother were due over too but Mum was ill and they stayed put. 

We just got a day left now to calm down and get ready for normal life to resume.

I was looking at all the fandom year end Meme's but figured I didn't have a lot to say as there's only been two new shows I dallied with one good (Game of Thrones) , the other at the moment decidedly meh (Once Upon a Time).  I will say that I am looking forward to all the whedonian output this year, The Avengers, Much Ado, the possibility of Dr Horrible (bit optimistic with that one)  and funny enough Cabin in The Woods ,although I don't usually do straight out horror films. I'm avoiding all trailers and teasers from now on. 

And also just to say new Sherlock last night? - Best. tv.ever. Good grief I loved it to bits.  I expected to enjoy it but not want to watch again immediately.  I may even have to get a Sherlock icon.

A couple of posts back I made some bannersets for the lovely [livejournal.com profile] angearia  and I kind of liked the caps I chose so I kept them kicking around until I had time to make wallpapers.

Can you guess mine??

List fifteen of your favorite characters from different fandoms, and ask people to spot patterns in your choices, if they're so inclined.

TV and Film/Book  characters

here they are!  )

I could have picked more than just these - quite a few whedonverse characters were left off the list because I needed to spread the choices  over the fandoms

Ok, not everything but just a start. Maybe if it's here then I'll feel as I am making progress as I things get crossed off.

ETA - Ooh lookey here I've crossed off a few things 26.11.06 ETAA - Ooh more things crossed off, still some biggies on there. I'll repost and add to an new entry 5.12.06
