The Start of Geek Week

Well it is the start of Geek Week for me, Thursday is the day I see all of the Avenger movies leading up to the midnight showing of The Avengers. I am so beyond excited!
So, the Irishman is still sick, he is better on the medication, as soon as it is gone; the symptoms come back in full force. It is crazy; I hope they can figure out what is wrong with him.
Nothing very eventful over the weekend, I did notice someone is reading every single thing I have ever written here. I wonder who you are, the only comments I have gotten from someone I don’t know was a crazy person defending a child abuser. She has been blocked from commenting, so if it is said crazy person, I will never know. If you are not the crazy person, please feel free to let me know who you are.
So two episodes in and RHONJ is rockin it! Man oh man, Teresa is alienating everyone, her husband Juicy Joe is starting physical fights and Melissa and Joey are quickly becoming my favorite couple. The emotional reaction that he had when she played her new song for him, which she wrote for him, was just nothing short of amazing. Every woman wants someone that feels that way about her, hands down best scene of the night. I love that Bravo didn’t back down about the accusations that Joe is cheating on Teresa, her fans that went to her book signings all tell her they are praying for her. Women can forgive an inordinate amount of wrong doing; hopefully they can pull things together. They have four daughters together, reason enough to work on things and get their acts together.
Poor Lauren, battling her weight issues, I understand how she feels, the battle is a hard one, especially if you have a family that eats big. They are Italian and Italians have all that great food and she was right when she said that summer is one of the worst times to begin a new eating regimen. I saw from a Facebook post from her mom, Caroline, that the diet did indeed work. Lauren looks fantastic; I hope we get to see some of the struggle. I believe it would help young women who battle this issue to know they are not alone and even the wealthy are not immune to the emotional turmoil that comes with battling ones weight.
Jacqueline, wow, so heartbreaking to watch her do the tough love with Ashley, and how really ditzy does one have to be to miss their flight while looking for a Dunkin Donuts? Really Ashley? The next day Christopher, Jacqueline’s husband took Ashley and made sure she got on the flight to her aunt and uncles home. They are sending her there in the hopes that it will help her grow up; being at home is sometimes not an option when the child becomes belligerent, lazy and rudderless. I understand the move did Ashley good and she found her direction in life. We are seeing the struggle that led to that growth.
Well, that’s all I got, I hope everyone has a great Geek Week! Let’s make this a great week for Joss Whedon!

Total Geek Happenings

I am going to admit to a major geeky thing I am going to do, I am so excited! On May 3, the Irishman and I, starting at noon, will be at the movie theater watching all of the Avenger movies, Iron Man I and II, Thor, The Hulk and Captain America, culminating at midnight with the showing of The Avengers, so freakin excited! I am going to totally geek out!
I love the Avengers and I love Joss Whedon, I cannot wait to see what he has done with this franchise. Expect live tweeting, if you are not following me on twitter, now is the time. I will not be tweeting any spoilers of the new movie, no fears on that end, probably a lot of O.M.G and Wow and Joss Rocks, will be on the menu of tweets.
Does anyone out there have a total geekfest coming up? I know Jess does. If not what is your favorite geek out moment in your life? I have too many to really mention, however, my very first total geek out was at Star Trek the Motion Picture, it was when Spock walked onto the bridge wearing all black. An epic moment indeed.
so I confessed mine, your turn, confess yours.

My New Career

I have decided that I want to do celebrity interviews, the problem is I don’t know any celebrities, however I shall not let that stop me. I am going to do fake celebrity interviews, I will ask the questions then answer how I think they would answer. Fun! Ok, now I just have to decide who is first, I know, Dean Cain is the obvious answer, but I don’t want to be obvious, Christian Kane comes to mind immediately, I mean he is filming the new season of Leverage right now and doing publicity is part of his job. I think I might be to nervous to interview him right now, must gain experience in doing fake celebrity interviews before tackling major crushes.
Ah, the perfect person to cut my teeth on, so to speak, Joss Whedon, he does have the new Avengers moving coming out May 4th, he does need the publicity. Joss it is! I hope I don’t Baio it all up!!!
Welcome everyone to my very first ever fake celebrity interview, please join me in welcoming Fake Joss Whedon to the party!
Me: Mr Whedon, thank you so much for taking the time to speak to me today.
FJW: Please call me Joss, and thank you for allowing me to be your first Fake Celebrity.
Me: Joss, first off, let me get my geeky awkwardness out of the way, I love Buffy, Angel, Firefly, The Dollhouse, really anything you do. I would jump up and down and squeal, however I am trying to pretend I am sophisticated.
FJW: Thank you, my fans are the lifeblood of my career. Without all of you I would just be lining the walls of a studio apartment with unread scripts.
Me: Let’s talk Avengers
FJW: Happily
Me: How was it working with all of these superheros?
FJW: Um, you do realize they are actors right? Not actual superheros?
Me: What!!! You used fake superheros? How does one actually do that in a movie about them?
FJW: I think I made a mistake booking this fake interview.
Me: Next you will be telling me that Angel really wasn’t 200 years old and that a fake vampire was used in the shows.
FJW: Help me!
Me: Ok, was SMG even a real Vampire Slayer?
FJW: I’m fake leaving.
Thank you all for being at my first Fake Celebrity Interview!

The Bachelor, How I really Feel

I saw a tweet the other day where Barbara Walters called the show, The Bachelor a degradation to women, I retweeted and added my own two cents. I called it a degradation to humanity, it was mentioned on MSN.com trends. I had no idea until someone commented here and let me know.
I would like to tell you why I believe the Bachelor and the Bachelorette shows are degradations to humanity. We, as humans, have come so far in the short amount of time we have been on this planet and this is what we reduce ourselves to? Vying to be on a television show where, I admit I don’t know, how many women are trying to get the attention of one man? Vice versa on the other one, but let’s tackle the Bachelor first shall we. All of these women, allowing this man to grope them and stick his tongue down their throat all in the hopes of a proposal at the end of the program. These women are not ugly, however from what I hear some are crazy, but they are not ugly. So why this show? Why humiliate yourself in front of the world for a man?
Fame, comes to mind, in our current culture people will do anything for fame, including taping themselves having sex and “leaking” it to the public. How must the parents of these girls feel watching them do these things. If my daughter, Elizabeth Anne, told me she was going on this show, I would lock her in a room until she was too old to go anywhere near it. But here is the thing with my daughter, I raised her differently, I raised her to be independent, self-reliant and to have self respect. These women have no self respect, and from what I know of the show the man involved has no respect for these women. He goes from one to the other saying I love you to them? When they see the show air do they feel humiliation? Or, because in this society, they are happy to just be on television? That is the real question, when are we going to go back to having morals and not thinking that being famous is all there is to life?
Don’t get me wrong, part of me would love to be famous, just for the free shoes that I know someone would want to send me. Are you out there Jimmy Choo? This show is not romantic, it is skanky and encourages women to whore themselves out for a few moments of air time.
If we boycott this show, like we all should, then these people would have to have real lives, real relationships and perhaps have a modicum of decency. As it is they don’t have any of those things.
Those are my feelings on these types of shows, I hate them, I like scripted programming, let’s get Joss Whedon back on prime time, then I will be a completely happy woman.
