There's some stuff going on - a lot of them good! YAY! Even the stuff that isnt so good is coupled with some good stuff. So, I'm going to talk about it all.
~So, tonight is the first night of Passover. YAY! Passover for me is like Christmas is for some Christians. It is my all time favorite holiday. For those of you have been on my Flist for years? You know that I go off the chain on this holiday. GUESTS! DINNERS! SINGING! PICTURES! Expect recaps, although this year will be much smaller, some of my friends from Skyland are coming on the 2nd night! Maybe ofangoriousone
will come? Idk. But yay! Passover. That said, I'm avoiding going home because the prep is giving me anxiety. Thats the mental illness, which sucks. Still, I'll take that anxiety to enjoy my holiday. YAY!
~My mom went out of town over the week. She was gone until last night and the first three days she was gone? It was not great. But I spent a lot of time painting (I've started painting guys. It's kinda great. Acrylic paints=my new favorite thing) and that was both artistically satisfying and really helpful for my anxiety.
~I'm working more hours so if the car clusterfuck with the fines doesnt get resolved, I'll still get to get through it a little bit quicker than I thought. So that's something thank god.
~ Does anyone else watch South Park? Because WHAT THE FUCK! ( No seriously, what the actual fuck. )
~Lastly, yall, we need to have a talk about Spartacus: Vengeance. Did anyone else watch it? Because another thing I did this week was mainline it like it was heroin. Holy crap. I miss Andy Whitfield God rest him but this season? By far my favorite. It was like...okay. At some point, this show realized that Blood and Sand(s1) and Gods of the Arena(S2 and the prequel) were kinda rapey and that was not good. That didnt go away this season, probably never will, but this season was like "Hey, lets write a whole bunch of women who kick ass in various ways and give/take their own agency in whatever way works best for them." It was magnificent. I have no idea what happened in the writers room, because the show is still problematic in a LOT of ways but it went from an 8 on the feminism problematic scale to more like a 3 because it looked at its women and said "Hey, lets give them agency or deal with their PTSD/trauma/problems in ways that are respectful and the sort of choices that real women would make." Ugh, you guys it was glorious. Not only that? IT PASSED THE FREAKING BECHDEL TEST MOST EPS. WHAT EVEN.
Lets not even talk about Lucy Lawless: The Flawless. She was amazing the end. All the Romans were creeptastic awesome.
And then? There was the gay love story. *HANDS* You guys. There is exactly one "they meet and then they fall in love" love story this season and its between one of Spartacus' lieutenant's Agron and one of the freed male slaves Nasir. It's slow build. It begins in a friendship. It's romantic. It's done in a way that isnt self-congradulatory or blatant. Everyone in their sphere are just like "oh, hey, these two guys, who are our friends, are falling in love. That's nice." It's just a part of the universe, no attention is drawn to it except within the building of their relationship. It just is. Just like Naevia and Crixus just are. Just like every other heterosexual relationship just is. Ultraviolent, ultragraphic trashy show: doing gay love right. Oh, and did I mention how they are super hot for each other? They are. *points at icon* They are super hot, in general and for each other and occasionally they make out against walls. So yeah. If you're bored, check it out. I'm falling down the kink meme hole. Expect trashy, roman-flavored porn in this space in the future *facepalm*
~I still have to finish the Hunger Games/Bandom fusion to work on and there is a LOT of it. No, a lot. I'm at 27K and just got them down to the gym for day 1 of training(if you know the book, you know exactly where that is). So yeah, I do not need a new ship right now, especially not one with canon boykissing to fuel the fire of obsession. PLEASE SEND HELP! HELP!!
