Hello internets! I still exist, I just fell into a bit of a funk and went back to lurking. Life is still full of weirdness, but I really shouldn't be letting that spoil my fandom fun times. Where are my Lurkers United support group? I need y'all to help prod me into participating more! Anyway, here is some stuff I have brief belated thoughts on:
First picture of Bane: SHOULDERS. UNF. That is all.
Doctor Who 'The Doctor's Wife': Perfect episode of TV is perfect. I laughed. I wept. She was everything I wanted her to be and a million things I would never have thought of. I love her SO MUCH. HEARTS IN MY EYES!
Community 'A Fistful of Paintballs' and 'For a Few Paintballs More': Damn you show, why are you so ridiculously awesome? Because even by my standards of hyperbole and everything-being-the-best-thing-ever (see above) I am running out of ways to describe how fabulous this show is and how much I adore it. I spent most of both episodes squealing with delight. "Pop WHAT?" Troy is the absolute bestest evah.
Hawaii Five-O: WHAT? Let me go on the record as saying I hate cliffhanger finales. I want at least a modicum of closure in a finale. I'm fine with unanswered questions and teases for next season, but that was not a finale, that was a bunch of stuff thrown at my telly box that may or may not be resolved in a badass manner in four bloody months.

Attack the Block: Fantastic movie. Chavs versus aliens. That is all you need to know. Go see it.
Random celebrity encounters in my social circle: The other week I saw Jason Donovan shopping on my local high street. I was giddy, mostly because my first proper "grown-up" concert when I was about 11 was seeing him (either him or Kylie Minogue, they were the same year but I can't remember which came first). But then I was crestfallen as I was totally trumped by my nearest and dearest - a friend who works in the wine industry is having lunch with Francis Ford Coppola to discuss selling the produce of the Coppola vineyard, and filming of The Dark Knight Rises is happening outside my brother's office. I am made mostly of jealousy right now. But don't worry, I have instructed my bro to take pics of anything interesting that happens and/or kidnap me a Tom Hardy, whichever is most convenient, and he's a very good brother so he'll try his best, I'm sure!
