1. I'm thinking for my semester in Vienna, I'm going to leave a week or so before I need to be in Vienna and meet up with a few friends of mine who will be in Germany... somewhere. Possibly Nürnberg or Berlin. Wherever they are then. I figure this will give me time to a) get over my jetlag before I have to deal with school and moving into a new place and meeting tons of new people b) give me time to get used to being in a German-speaking country and c) give me time to hang out in Germany with my friends, obvs. The only problem is I would have to carry around all my luggage wherever we went unless I can find somewhere to store it. But I'm sure I could figure something out.
Also, I signed up for a nine day trip to Prague, Budapest, and Krakow, so hopefully I signed up early enough to get a spot! Eeeeeeee! \o/
2. I think my problem with Supernatural
this season is that it's taking the apocalypse - and itself- way, way too seriously. I was raised on Buffy the Vampire Slayer
, okay? I need people to crack a joke once every two episodes instead of constant jaw-clenching and single tears and self-loathing and total despair and hopelessness. I feel like I'm in an episode of Oz
up in here! Dean deals with his pain by being a drunk manwhore and Castiel is his religious friend who .... well, disapproved at some point. Lucifer is O'Reily, obvs, and the angels are the corrupt guards. Not sure that Sam could really pull off Keller though. Needs more crazy. And at the end of the episode you're like, who the fuck is still letting these people run this place? How have the guards/angels not been fired yet with all these dead people? I really wondered how it was possible that Glynn and McManus kept their jobs for as long as they did. There were like three deaths every episode, on a good day. And usually ALL in the small population of Em City.
.... Because Oz
is obviously a show where everything makes logical sense.
3. I saw Invictus
, which is yet another movie in the strong tradition of ~Sports Bring People Together Across Racial Barriers~ but without the fun singing and dancing in Remember the Titans
. And, wow, are South African accents really that weird or did Matt Damon just have a really bad one? In any case, it made me really excited for the World Cup. Uh, of football. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS SHIT PEOPLE. I'm going to have to get some kind of night job because I can't miss the matches. From June 11 to July 11, FOOTBALL TAKES OVER MY LIFE. My family should consider themselves lucky that there aren't any games on July 4th this year so they won't have to deal with me sobbing at the family cookout.
