2.) The should has a perfect opportunity to fix some of the broken and ridiculous plot lines from the book.
Over the course of 5 books, Jace believes that Valentine is his father (making his love for Clary incestuous) then he spend the next few books being possessed by various beings. In my opinion these plot lines are rather dumb. There are ways to move the story along without them.
But what happened? The show went there. Did you hear me cussing about it? I'm sure the neighbors did!
The show got picked up for a season 2. I REALLY hope the writers can take the books and make some well crafted, consistent, compelling story lines that focus on these wonderfully flawed characters in their incredibly rich world.
If you're watching, and frustrated like I am... so is Super fan, Christina. Watch her viedos about the episodes here:
I am already sick to death of all things political.
The thought of a Donald Trump Presidency scares me down to my very core.
I live in a "battle ground" state. That means that in a few months we won't be able to watch TV without being bombarded with commercials.
And now we've got Congress acting like children again. They won't even entertain the thought of a Supreme Court nominee. Come on people, do your job!!
I'm at a point where my anxiety won't let me even think about the election and the ramifications. I just can't.... *shudder*
This weekend ushers in a few weeks of non-stop activities and appointments. Parties. Amusement parks. Movies. Appointments. I know that by April I'm going to be all:
(And Commencement season is just around the corner too. ...)
I carry all of my stress around my neck and face. I clench my jaw. I hunch my shoulders. It's not pretty!
So what's to do?
1.) I'm avoiding TV. Hulu, here I come.
2.) I need to heed my own limits and say no when I have to. On days where I've just had enough, I hide in the bedroom and watch Disney movies. (There's not much that Tangled, The Emperor's New Groove and Lilo and Stitch can't fix)
3.) I need to take care of myself. I'm working out regularly. (Mostly... this week I've been lazy) I also need to make sure that I schedule appointments. I also need to get myself back to the Chiropractor. And maybe schedule a massage...
What do you do to de-stress and deal with Adulting?
(And because I have to: my favorite part of the movie:)
Ok, now that the Spousal Equivalent (the photographer in the family) has his pictures done.. I can start with my recap!
Let me be honest. Disney starts your vacation at the airport!
The magic Bands were put on while we were still in the air! Why???
So we could get on the Magic Express!!
A scan of the band and we were ready to go!
The bus brought us right to the resort! The bags were actually waiting in our room when we checked in!
Disney was rather efficient with getting everyone to the right bus and off to their resorts! We took advantage of checking our luggage all the way to the room... which was rather awesome!
Soon, we were on our way, and saw this sight..
We are here! I totally cried!!
Thanks to a coworker, we got to stay at a Disney Vacation Club resort! We were at Old Key West!
The Hospitality House, where we got the bus
Our room was on the second floor
the gift shop
After getting to the resort and having them take our carryons, it was time to hit the Run Disney expo!
The Expo... I've never seen that many people in one place ever! Holy crap!! But I got my bib and my shirt. I drooled over the Dooney bags. We ended up going to bed early! (Well the SE went to Disney Quest...)
Day 2 We started at the Kona Cafe, so I could try Tonga Toast. then SE and I were off to Epcot!
the Lobby of the Polynesian Resort
We took the Monorail from the resort to Epcot!
We got to Epcot, and went right to meet Mulan!
We talked about the race I was going to run
The SE and she talked about our kitten, Mulan!
Then to Morocco for Lunch!
After I got some food in me, we hit some rides!
Universe of Energy
Test Track. I'm a roller coaster weenie, but I enjoyed this!
And finally, dinner (and a drink) in Mexico!
Mission: Space. I did the Orange side. It's intense, they weren't kidding!
Next up: Hollywood Studios, The race, Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom!
