books and things

i recently discovered that i actually really like love books. i'm not sure what happened, but one day i woke up and was like:

          (i love memes. i go to the "humor" page on pinterest and laugh at these like an idiot. it's fun)

anyway, i'm currently reading "Les Miserables" by Victor Hugo. it took a while for me to really get into it, but once i got past book 2, i couldn't stop reading. in fact, i'm not sure why i'm sitting here blogging instead of reading. oh wait, it's because i care about you guys. yep, that's it.

i picked "Les Mis" to read because, one, it's a classic and two, THE MOVIE IS COMING OUT ON CHRISTMAS DAY AND RUSSELL CROWE IS IN IT AND I'M SO EXCITED...CAN YOU TELL?!?!?!
i'm just really excited, ok? i love music. i love movies. and, i love books. Les Miserables is all those things packed into one potentiality beautiful, amazing, epic package with some of my favorite actors. because you know, i'm a big fan of Russell Crowe and everyone else. and please don't get me started on Amanda Seyfried... i just love that girl! if you haven't seen the trailer, here 

so, hopefully the movie will be good. judging by the trailer, i'm pretty sure it will be. i mean, it won't be as good as the book, but it is a movie so, that's just kind of a given here.

oh, do you like my penguin socks?  i think they're crazy, which to me means awesome.


happy weekend, you guys! here's some advice: cozy up with a big, soft blanket, drink coffee, gaze out the window and drink in all that Autumn beauty and listen to Josh Groban. yes, yes. ;)


heroes that are super

lets just take a moment and talk about superheroes because they are...well, super. my favorite superhero of all time is Batman, but he is too fantastic to mention in this post. he might make all these other guys look almost silly, and that wouldn't be fair, would it?

so last week i finally saw "The Avengers" and, of course, i loved it. my favorite avenger? Thor. why? He is such a rock star.

 I mean, he literally fights like a rock star. my favorite thing about Thor though, besides his sweet, and yet masculine personality, is his hair. seriously. long hair is has been my favorite from ever since i can remember. to me, it is SO manly.
 it seemed like in "The Avengers", Thor just kept getting smashed and/or left out. ha! (Poor guy)

my other favorite avenger is Iron Man. who doesn't like him, anyway? he has all the best quotes in the movie. i can't even tell you. just go watch the movie.

call me old-fashioned, (get it?!?) but captain America will always have a little spot in my heart. his hair is short, yes, but i still think he is great. he is just a sweetheart...in a manly way. plus he is just a good, clean man and that is quite admirable.

ok, that's really all. thanks for taking the time to read a goofy post about superheroes. now you should go watch the avengers... ha! ;)
