Public Service Announcement

A couple of things:

First, Blog Hiatus, from today until June 1! I am sorry to do it, but May is going CRAZY on me with travel and family obligations (birthdays and anniversaries and weddings galore!) and I really just want to focus on getting this Pirithous draft done with the LITTLE time I will not be spending running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Check back Friday, June 3 for my return to the blog. I have no idea what that post will be about but hopefully it will be spectacular enough to make up for my absence!

Second, my SPOILER FREE review of THOR is up over on GeekaChicas, and do please read up! I can add after my second viewing that 2D is superior and El husband and I both enjoyed the movie even more the second time through! 2D even had better previews. I don't know what they were thinking not including a Captain America preview in front of the IMAX showing, but that was pretty dumb. Oh yes, and when you go to Thor, be sure to stay through the credits for the Avengers teaser scene. Unless you don't care about Avengers or what is coming next for Thor, in which case, feel free to leave before the Foo Fighters song in the end credits.

If you love me, you will not just go read my review, you will also go see the movie, if for no other reason than to see the magic Chris Hemsworth works with the role of Thor. And also so that this movie makes enough money that we get a Thor 2 after Avengers. All right? Excellent! Share the #ThorLove!

And lastly, this quote, because I love it. Paris is speaking (writing) to Helen, trying to convince her to run away with him.

"And so Theseus rightly felt love’s flame, for he was acquaint with all your charms, and you seemed fit spoil for the great hero to steal away, [...]. His stealing you away, I commend; my marvel is that he ever gave you back." Ovid, Heroides: 16.
That is in fact my marvel too, Paris.

  1. Good luck running around like crazy! When you get back there is a blog award waiting for you on my blog (pick whichever one you want, or pick them both - it's fine by me!)

    Going to see Thor this weekend :) Hubs saw it already and loved it. And he's very stingy with his super-hero-movie praise.

  2. Thor is definitely on my list of Movies To Be Seen.

    Also, good luck with the craziness this month. Just wanted to drop a comment to let you know I'm still out here, even though I haven't been as visible lately. We need to catch up one of these days!
