My Thoughts On...


IMDB's summary:  "Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel's X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto, to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven with the help of Professor X must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction."

My thoughts:  the first time (& a couple of times after) I saw the preview for this movie, I got goosebumps.  No jokes, that's how big of a nerd I am.  So, I'm shocked that it took this long for Paul & I to finally go see it.


I loved it!  I love the characters, I love the actors, I just love X-Men.  It makes me want to go back to the beginning/end (depending how you look at it) & watch them all again even the Origin movies.  They are just SO good!  I can hardly contain myself & then when I saw this in a preview:


it was on!  I love me some Wolverine...excuse me, Weapon X.  He is such a badass & it just gets me more & more excited for the next Wolverine movie.  Plus, Hugh Jackman is a good looking man but there is just something about when he's Wolverine that gets me going.  Yum!

After viewing this, I tried to figure out who my favorite was & I've been having a difficult time choosing between Jean, Charles/Professor X, Eric/Magneto or Quicksilver.  For some reason, I'm kinda gravitating towards Eric especially after what was done to him.  Although, I wish he would pick a side & stay put - the whole back & forth with him is beginning to make my neck hurt.  Ha!  I will say that I do like him as a "bad guy" & I understand why he's "bad" & wants to get revenge on the world.


X-Men:  Apocalypse's Grade:
B+

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Weekending/Musical Monday…

I've decided to start linking up with Biana on reporting on activities of the weekend.  If you would like to join, hit her up!
So, on to my weekend...
Friday - the husband & I went out to dinner and for drinks with our friends, Ben & Christa.  & then headed back to our house for some games.  A nice quiet evening with some great people.
Saturday - my cousin, Jennifer, & I decided to take a last minute trip to Appleton for some shopping & such.  We had her youngest with her & he was perfect!  We had so much fun & while at Scheels, I educated him about Bucky Badger because he kept going over to the Wisconsin Badger stuff & by the end of our trip in that store, he was calling out "Bucky!"  My heart could not be prouder.


When we got back into town, Paul & I went out for a couple glasses of wine & then headed back home to relax & watch Baby Driver.  You can read my review here.

Sunday - typical Sunday, spent the morning hanging out in be…
