Movie Night!

So, I’m on the mend, back in Sydney, and headed to the movies with some friends yesterday to see Civil War. Verdict? Solid film that somewhat makes up for the train-wreck of The Age of Ultron that makes me want to give therapy kittens and fuzzy blankets to all of the characters.  :nyah:

It was super fun to go out to the movies with friends – I haven’t had anyone to hang out with in a very long time, since my best friend from high school moved away, my best friend from childhood moved interstate, and all my other high school friends kind of ditched me when we graduated. So, yes, it was awesome. We’re tentatively planning on doing it again in a few weeks, when XMen: Apocalypse is released. :cool:

Today was meant to include a trip to Books Kinokuniya for Free Comic Book Day, but I arrived forty-five minutes before the store even opened, and the queue went right around the block. Like, along George St, past Topshop and right around to Pitt St. Not today, Satan. I can snag scans from the free comic books online, and buy my comics online. I was stunned, because last year it was chaos in-store, but there was no queue. I blame the addition of the Maid Cafe – the menu sounded delicious. XD

Now, I’m going to curl up with a bowl of udon and watch cartoons, because how else does someone in their 20s spend a Saturday night? ;)

Nerd Weekend is Almost Here!

One of my favourite weekends of the year is the weekend of Supanova Sydney, a huge pop-culture expo at Sydney Olympic Park. There are actors, voice actors, comic book writers and artists, authors… this year, we have David Hasselhoff and the Weasley twins, some anime screenings and many, many exhibitors that I am looking forward to visiting (though, sadness, Wacom aren’t exhibiting this year :ohdear: . They were one of my favourites last year, and I was so badly hoping to get a drawing stylus for my mother’s iPad this year.)

We’re planning on getting autographs from Oliver and James Phelps, and I plan on getting one of my Futurama DVDs signed by Lauren Tom. I’m also on the hunt for some Super Mario knee socks, a Despicable Me 2 Agnes figurine and any Sailor Moon merchandise I can get my hands on.

Hopefully I’ll get to take loads of photographs this year. I’m not wearing a costume this year, but I will be wearing the super-amazing Avengers skirt my sister made me :marryme:
