avengers:sif smile

that film everyone's seeing, and other geekery

I went to see Iron Man 3 today! It's hilarious, exciting, twisty, full of fun dialogue and banter, and all round superb. And for the love of all things, stay until the very end of the credits because the extra scene is a gem.

Fun times and hilarity with friends and geeky shopping also happened:

I need to chat about comics sometime (and the friends that I've been corrupting *grins*) because I've been diving into those. We all picked up more today, heh. Also I keep having bizare conversations with strangers in comic book shops. Not that I don't have bizare conversations with strangers anyway, but today one was about death by hamsters with two people who worked there and a bunch of people queuing up to pay.

One of my friends brought a belated birthday gift for me - an 'Barton's School of Archery' t-shirt from Redbubble, an exploding Vincent Van Gogh TARDIS travel pass case, and a key ring with The Key from The Hobbit on it!!!

I used my Waterstones points (finally lol) to get the novel Shift, which is the sequel to Wool by Hugh Howey, because I read Wool all in one sitting on Thursday. It's imaginative, rich in details, has compelling characters, twists where you don't expect it, plays with you expectations, and is un-put-downable. No, really, I couldn't put it down.

And tonight is also new Doctor Who, so I'm gonna go watch that now.

Hello today and the people in it, thank you for existing :D
