Man, that was an epic game! It was really close with lots of drama... the Colts had a ten-point lead in the first quarter, largely due to their quarterback's surgical precision with a football. The Saints got it back by pulling some ridiculously ballsy moves (short kickoff in a Super Bowl game, who does that?! :DD), and then there was that amazing interception and touchdown! When they scored a touchdown with three minutes on the clock, it was over. Final score 31-17, and the Saints win the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history!! Man, can I pick a winner! The one team in all of pro football I decided to care about, and look at them now! :DDDDDD ...I bet half of New Orleans died of alcohol poisoning last night. XDD; Uncle Ivan said most schools were closed today, too.

Fun fact: last night's game was the most-watched program in television history. Wow.

So anyway, after a minor cold last week, I had a fairly fun weekend. Dar and I got caught up in Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries. I did a fun log on Saturday, in which I got Robin horribly injured. Whoops~! :DD (Watch him complain about it on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun. He is reeeeaaallly pissed at me. XDD;) And then a bunch of us went to see Demons at Cinema 21. That movie was ridiculous. 80's slasher flick involving an evil movie theater full of demon zombies with amazingly bad lines and incredible scenes such as the hero and his new girlfriend riding over the theater seats on a motocross bike while stabbing demon zombies with a katana. And then there was the part of the movie where the ceiling started groaning, and Dar and I thought the theater was going to get all House of Leaves on them, but no, it was just a RANDOM HELICOPTER FALLING THROUGH THE CEILING, wtf. ...And then there was, you know, the Super Bowl.

I had the scariest dream last night. DD: )

Will and I have plans to go swing dancing tomorrow, FINALLY. So that should be fun.

Also, Lauren and James, this is for you. I apologize for inflicting Lady Gaga on you, but listen to this. ...And then think of Old Gregg.

6:45 a.m. The sun is rising but we get there first. Sleepy Portland falls away beneath us, downtown highrises dimly distant, gold-scaled serpentine I-5 snakes south between the hills. Gaining altitude, further east- Hood rears majestic silhouetted by pink, turquoise, tangerine, August’s somehow slightly-demeaning bleak gray stone now mantled in pure, luscious white. In the distance less familiar peaks catch at the southern sky, jagged, snaggle-toothed. Below me the vast Columbia is a ditch; the Cascades loom dark above it. Ridgelines forking their way to Mt. Hood are skewbald, snow-white patches against the green-black of the firs. Low fog fills the valleys like glaciers. Snowy slopes are touched by pale light now, cirrus and contrails glow electric flamingo, and as the fir-clad, knife sharp peaks blur and fade to smooth, dun-brown hills the first flare of orange sun incinerates the earth.


So. What I've been up to lately. )

As I write this I am sitting on a plane, flying over the snow-capped Rocky Mountains. When I post this I will be in New Orleans. Why? Because my family loves me, that’s why. My brother called me up last week and was like, “Hey, doing anything for Thanksgiving? Wanna come to New Orleans?” The flights are my early Christmas present from Mom, Alex, and Nova. So yeah, for the rest of the month I’ll be hanging with Alex, Nova, Uncle Ivan, and Auntie Jeannette in the Big Easy, having MORE delicious turkey dinner, sailing and canoeing around in the bayous, rivers, and lakes of Louisiana, being a tourist in the French Quarter, and so on. I’m so excited; Alex and I haven’t been down to visit Ivan and Jeanette in NO since we were both in elementary school.

So yeah. New Orleans. …I know, right? Pretty fucking awesome.

EDIT: Sprawling Louisiana townships crackling with electricity, strung together like neurons with suburban dendrites and axon highways. America at night is a brain.

...So the plane I was on had to turn around because it had a cracked window and couldn't achieve the necessary altitude to get to NO. So we landed again in Minneapolis - St. Paul and they found us another airplane. That airplane was broken too. So they found us a third airplane, so I hiked across the GIGANTIC FREAKING airport and caught that. ...Oh well, at least I got to watch Obama pardon a turkey. (And I watched Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang on the plane... ilu TARDIS, my precious precious baby.) ...Ah well. Air travel. What are you gonna do? *sigh, eyeroll* Whatever, it's worth it to travel exciting places, and because everything's so damned pretty from the air.

I'm in N'awlins now. Ivan and Jeannette took me to a fabulous local eatery. We had fried dill pickles for an appetizer, which are actually quite delicious, especially when dipped in ketchup and various peppery sauces. I had this amazing crawfish pasta dish, and the tasty local beer, which they serve in chilled goblets the size of the world. So, I'm off to a great start. Jealous yet~?

Last night's dreams involved a lot of sex. A lot of lesbian and gay sex.

Under a cut because it's naughty~. ...No actually I just talk a lot, as usual. )

And also, other stuff. THE DECEMBERISTS CONCERT. )



So that's most of what's been going on with me recently. The other exciting thing that I need to share, if you haven't seen it already (I've watched it sooo many times), is this: the Sherlock Holmes trailer, AT LAST!! It's been months since I'd heard anything new about it; I'd seen production photos and I knew RDJ was to be Holmes and Jude Law was to be Watson. Now, RDJ I wasn't worried about, because I fervently believe it is impossible for him to fuck up a role, but Jude Law... he's a fabulous actor, but I thought it was weird casting. But no. He looks fantastic with a little facial hair. OH MAN THIS IS GOING TO BE SO GOOD. I need to re-read the stories. And, as usual, I want to lick RDJ all over. Allllllll over. Oh man. I can't wait.
