What's the First Thing That Comes Into Your Head...

Posted by delilah , Jan 26 2013 · 233 views

...when you hear the word "train?"
 
Personally, I think of one of those big strong locomotives that can pull a hundred cars.
 
Literally hundreds. I've counted.

Brickcon 2013

Posted by delilah , Jan 19 2013 · 237 views
brickcon, 2013
I am going.
 
(this decision is largely thanks to a certain Rene that some of you may know)
 
I have been wanting to go for years and years and finally I do believe this will be the year (unless something huge inexplicably comes up but shhh don't jinx it).
 
My only problem: it is 260 days, 10 hours, and 29 minutes away, and I don't know if I can make it because I am super excited and nervous already and it's only January.
 
Um so yeah that's all I really have to say here.

So... Hockey?

NHL
The NHL lockout has come, at long last, to an end (yes this is old news but I forgot to make a blog post about it)
 
I, however, will not be watching any hockey until October 2013, because I'm stubborn and I don't want to support a league that treats its fans so poorly.
 
I am Canadian, in case you didn't know, and hockey is in my blood. In my very soul
 
Needless to say, this is heartrending. 
 
*tears*

(I swear though if the Canucks win the Cup this year I will die because I won't get to see it)

How Many Books Can I Read at Once!?

Posted by delilah , Jan 10 2013 · 120 views
books
I have a habit of buying books.
 
In case you are new to this blog, I work at a coffee shop. The business right next door is a used book store, which I frequent often. As a result, I find myself acquiring new books all the time (much faster than I can read them).
 
Here's a list of books I currently have on the go:
 
Les Misérables - a book about- nevermind, you guys all know what it's about, right? ( and actually I started this one long before I saw the movie thank you very much :P)
 
Wild Cards - an anthology of short stories written by different sci-fi writers set in a shared universe where superheroes are the result of a virus.
 
A Game of Thrones - the first book in the Song of Ice and Fire series. It's fantasy and really, really good (yes, I am a latecomer to this series shhh [also I bought this book in like-new condition for $1 and that makes me happy] ).
 
I also recently finished The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time which was one of the strangest books I have ever read. But it was good, and, again, I got it for only a dollar, so I'm happy with it.
 
In the meantime, Tolstoy's War and Peace, Stephen King's Misery (The Shining got me hooked on King), and Margaret Atwood's Cat's Cradle (The Handmaid's Tale got me hooked on Atwood), among others, are staring me in the face, begging me to read them.
 
Anyone else in this sort of a situation? I have dozens of books, and no time to read!

Les Misèrables

Posted by delilah , Jan 06 2013 · 155 views

So, I went to see ​Les Misèrables last night.
 
Let's just say that it didn't disappoint. It was an emotional roller coaster of a ride that did justice to the play and to the book. I'm not much of a cry-er, but let me tell you: I was blinking back tears several times.
 
Highs: Anne Hathaway as Fantine. She stole every scene she was in (which numbered too few, IMO... but that's how the story goes), and I honestly would have paid full ticket price just to see and hear her sing "I Dreamed a Dream", which was my absolute favourite scene in the film. Absolutely phenomenal; she deserves every award it's possible for her to win.
 
Pretty much everything else. Hugh Jackman and Russel Crowe was absolutely fantastic as Jean Valjean and Javert respectively, as everyone knew they would be. :P Samantha Barks played Éponine brilliantly, so much so that I would say I almost enjoyed her scenes more than Jackman's. The Thénardiers (oh, Bonham Carter <3), Cosette (both young and old), Marius... oh, everyone was amazing. Absolutely amazing.
 
Lows (which I am spoilering so you won't have to read them if you haven't seen the movie yet and don't want to judge before you get to watch it):
Spoiler

 
Overall, though it was fantastic. I saw the musical on stage in the summer, and you can't beat Les Mis live, but this film comes pretty close. If you haven't seen it yet, I would recommend it in a heartbeat. Do yourself a favour and go see ​Les Misèrables.
 
Tonight.
 
Seriously, go see it now! What are you waiting for?

We Made It to 2013!?

Posted by delilah , Jan 05 2013 · 113 views
2013
Yay!
 
Unfortunately, with all the stress of the world ending, I had no time to think about new years' resolutions. Did anyone else, or do you just think there's no point?
 
Personally, I like new years' resolutions, just because of the whole idea that people are actually trying to better themselves. Granted, the stereotype is that we fail... but it's the thought that counts, right? :P
 
With that said, my resolution is... I dunno. Somebody give me one, or tell me what yours is so I can copy it!
