Red Rose

F-List Love and Fangirling

Two worthy activities, I think.

Nabbed from jenwryn:

If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the Internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

I hereby hug you all.  *hugs you all*

Also.... HOLY BATMAN, BATMAN.  "The Dark Knight" is a fantastically good movie.  It is an amazing movie.  It blew my mind and blew me away, utterly and completely.  Oh, God.  SO GOOD.  I was a little worried, because the reviews said it was unrelentingly heavy and not actually all that fun, but... I disagree.  It was dark, yeah, but it was also really funny in a fair amount of places.  It was thematically quite heavy, yes, but the action sequences were enough to make your heart soar and race and catch in your throat, sometimes all at once.  I love Michael Caine.  And Aaron Eckhart is very good.  And Christian Bale is striking, as usual.  And Heath Ledger... Heath Ledger.  My Lord.  I was really worried they'd go overboard, and what could be avant-garde would just seem campy, but he was terrifying.  Gleefully menacing.  The first movie was pretty big on the psychological stuff, too, but this one takes it to a new level.  Truly brilliant film.  Will be seeing it again -- and soon.

I wore a dress today and was summarily reminded why dresses aren't nearly so much fun as the usual jeans-and-whatever.  No running around hopping fences and climbing on things and sticking one's hands in one's pockets, certainly.  It is kind of fun, though, every once in a while, to go around doing things and knowing full well that you look nice.  Can't complain.
