I’ve made it no secret that the entire month of May is basically a nightmare for me; I’m actually surprised I’ve been able to keep up with my posts this long! So to keep myself as relaxed and stress-free as possible (ha!), I’ve been revisiting a lot of movies and books. Because it’s like a long-term relationship – there’s no unnecessary awkwardness. I can just walk in, in my pjs (or no pants – because it’s 110 degrees here in California and I’M DYING OVER HERE)
and my books are there for me with no judgement or get-to-know-yous.
So anyway, to get to the point of this post, the whole reason I’m drafting this in the first place, is to make fun of Spider-Man 2. Because I’ve loved re-watching all my old shows (HELLO SUPERNATURAL RERUNS), and it’s been fantastic reading the Pushing the Limits series all over in preparation for Take Me On, but then I got to Spider-Man 2. I recorded it on FX while they were having their superhero weekend, and was all excited because I haven’t seen those movies in years!
But WHAT THE HELL IS ON MY TELEVISION??? I’m cringing from second-hand embarrassment over here. And yet I can’t look away! Because that glowing thing with the solar flares was pretty cool, I’ll admit. But jeeessseeeee the ACTING and I knew there was a reason I disliked Toby McGuire. He’s fine as Nick Carraway, since that dude’s a stick in the mud anyway, but I’m definitely sticking with Andrew Garfield from now one (because the HAIR).
And someone was feeding the camera men crack because who in their right mind zooms into someone’s mouth while they’re screaming as they’re about to be impaled?? Honestly, I really need to know. Because the last thing I needed to was to look at a bunch of uvulas when I’m trying to zone out and ignore life.
So this post has really derailed now… and now you can see the “school needs to be over” version of Kayla. ONE. MORE. WEEK.
How are you all doing with the end of the school year? Teachers and students alike: I salute you all, and send baskets of chocolate, tissues, and Barnes and Noble gift cards for the retail therapy we’ll all need when this is over.
