[Freeman] studied at London’s Central School of Speech and Drama. “I remember a thing that one of the teachers said: ‘If you want to escape from yourself, or if you think you’re going to be someone else, then acting is the worst job in the world. Because this tells you more about yourself than you want to know.’ Which I think is really interesting and really true. I’ve always felt that the really, really interesting stuff that we see actors do has to be them… If you’re not drawing on truth for you, then it’s f***ing pointless.”

Anyone watching Sherlock tonight? I feel like I've forgotten how to fandom. :/

I've recently started watching Sherlock... and, as usual, I'm several years late to the party. )

And I'm off to bake cupcakes. :)

Can anyone remind me how to insert a picture into a post? I tried using the insert/edit image dealie, but preview is just showing the red x box.

OMG, y'all, this video! In HD!

My second fandom, let me show you it.

OMG, can we please, please have this woman as President?

From here: I just met Secretary Clinton. She loves the site. Pictures to... on Twitpic

ZOMG The Walking Dead in Peeps!

Much more awesomeness (including The Hunger Games, Harry Potter and Star Wars) HERE.

So, who here has read "Fifty Shades of Gray"? There's been so much talk about the book that I thought I'd check it out. I did the same with "Twilight" when it first came out -- I read the first one just to see what all the fuss was about. I expected I'd dislike Fifty just like I disliked Twilight, and feel free to walk away all safe in the knowledge that I have finer tastes in reading than the vast majority of that book's readers.

But, you know what? I'm kind of really enjoying it. Not gonna spoil anything, but I'm so surprised to actually like it and I had to know if anyone else felt that way.

I don't even hate the female lead character, which I suspect is because I've so thoroughly blocked Twilight girlie character out of my brain due to PTSD caused by I don't even picture that actor when I think of Fifty's protagonist. I do kinda see Robert Pattinson for the male character, which is a little bit annoying. I'm trying to convince my head to see him as someone else. Hmmm... perhaps John Bernthal. Perhaps Norman Reedus (on second thought, no, I can't see that at all.) Who else could pull off a very dommy character?

Wow, everyone on FB seems intent on raising my blood pressure tonight. Someone posted that 2007 photo of President Obama where he doesn't have his hand over his heart during the National Anthem, and a person I have known previously as gentle and kind called him a pig. Someone else called Spike Lee a terrorist for tweeting the (incorrect) George Zimmerman address and insinuated that the President speaking out about Trevon Martin is "supporting terrorism." Someone else posted a picture of President Obama with...I don't even remember except there was a tall stack of Legos involved and he was supposed to be saying that he was going to take half of them and give them to kids who had been napping all afternoon.

I just closed that tab and have intentions of staying away until I can bear it again.

Took the GRE this morning. To say it was challenging (especially the math) would be something of an understatement.

Unofficial score, math: 146
Required for my program: 141

Unofficial score, verbal: 160
Required for my program: 150

Woohoo! I was completely expecting to bomb the math, but I squeaked out of it. Thought I'd do better on the verbal, but WHO CARES I PASSED.

Well, once I have the analytical writing scores back, I passed, but I do think I passed those, too. My program requires a 3.5, but I have no frame of reference for what that would be. I just know that I felt I semi-kicked the ass of the first essay, and did well enough on the second.


On to the fun stuff -- Hunger Games!

Spoilery reaction to The Hunger Games )

Anyway, my brain is broken. At least I am safe from any potential zombie apocalypse?

Okay, so this is going to sound strange, but...I'm not sure I actually saw Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. It was on last night, but it was really late and I was heading to bed, so I didn't watch all of it. And...I have no memory of the scenes I was watching!

Did I somehow miss seeing the movie?

Is this still a spoiler? )

So I'm trying to join Tumblr and it's asking for a URL -- what the hell URL does it want? Is this some sort of invitation or something? There's no explanation whatsoever, but it won't let me proceed without one.


Got it! Thanks, y'all!

Now, I just need to figure out what to be over there, because someone, for reasons I cannot fathom, is already using fangirlsays! I mean, really? It's a stupid name that I chose because I was sure no one else would ever want it. And because it was different!

I have no idea what to do now. I liked being the same pretty much everywhere. :(

Okay, I'm there; feel free to follow; I'll follow back as soon as I figure out how. :)

I ship it.

Somewhat spoilery (but not very much) picture from this week's The Walking Dead behind the cut.

I SO ship it. )
