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.
Stationed: here!

OMG- you're so right. We just got home from seeing Dark Knight. Christopher Nolan is genius. And, I was sad about Heath Ledger before, but now I'm feeling especially broken hearted. I thought he was an amazing actor anyway, but his performance blew me away.

Dresses are fun, but I'm always paranoid I'm not sitting like a lady, lol. I have lots of them that I love and wear to work, but it's like I'm on guard all day.

I expected to be impressed after "Brokeback Mountain," but yeah, this was totally incredible. o___o

I have the same problem... I spend a lot of time switching which leg's crossed over the other...

My humble girlfriend is deluding herself by proclaiming that she looked "nice." I wish to clear up this misconception by stating that she looked unparalleled in her beauty. ;)

Also, Dark Knight was EPIC WIN!

That is all.

I need to see the Dark Knight so badly!!!!!!!! *Sigh* Work and the play have been getting in the way of everything!!!! :( *tear* I wish I could have seen you in a dress. :) It's hard for me to picture though I'm sure you were gorgeous. :P

Well, it's not going anywhere, and for good reason. x)

Heh, well. I think "gorgeous" is a pretty strong word... XD
