The post in which I eat my words

You may remember a post I wrote back in December about my feelings towards Marvel but more importantly about Captain America. I may have even called him a *ahem* bore. Well, I went to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier today (I took one of my boys from work in case you are wondering why I would watch a sequel to a movie I couldn't even finish) and I was all like.....

HOT! and HOT!

HA! That's funny.

Badass chick!

Remind me again why I thought the Captain was boring. Umm...I think what I meant was he is HOT!

I had actual thoughts while I was watching the movie that I wanted to put down here but now I can't remember what any of them were. I know that I am going to be watching the first movie in its entirety and I know that I probably would have been crying during certain parts if I had been more invested in the characters but it might be good that I wasn't, at least for the sake of the teen boy sitting next to me who would have been super embarrassed if I started crying in the theater. Although I do tell the boys that it is my goal in life to embarrass them.

If you are looking for an actual post about the movie and not just ramblings from a recent convert who has a new love for The Captain. I would recommend checking out this post from The Literary Omnivore.

I'll leave you with a cute quote.
I had planned the movie when I thought more of my boys would have been going and when it turned out to be only one I was bummed he was the one who isn't really into superhero movies. I asked him why and his response was "I like villains." Well okay then. Then, as the credits rolled, he turned to me wide-eyed and said "There's gonna be another one, huh."

Weekly Refresh

~currently involved with~ cuteness in the form of my best friend's daughter (which is why this post is coming to you late). For confirmation of cuteness please see above photo. She is in love with my eos chapstick and asked for the "ball" everytime she sees it. She saw me put it on so now she rubs the ball over her lips, which is what she is doing in the picture.

I'm loving roses from my garden
~moving on from~ my cold! Which turned into a sinus infection...which I got antibiotics for...which is actually now feeling better. Yay!

~taking with me~ Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor. I am taking that books EVERYWHERE with me. I got a slight sunburn while I was sitting outside reading it yesterday. I was so into it I didn't realize how hot I was getting. I only got little bits of time throughout the week so I'm not finished yet but it's good because I have been able to savor it.

All you tabs tabs that almost made it to the quote of the week

~quote of the week~ 

Apparently Zuzana was feeling the same. "My kingdom for caffeine," she mumbled, making prayer hands up at the ceiling. 
When, however, in the next second, Issa entered with tea, Zuzana was not grateful. "Coffee, I meant coffee," she told the ceiling, as if the universe were a waiter that had gotten her order wrong.

Weekly Refresh

~currently involved with~ I'm almost finished with Cress by Marissa Meyer, which is a fun series I have been enjoying. The plan is to finish it tomorrow because Tuesday I am rushing out to buy Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor (which I am so excited about I can't stand it) and I plan to spend every moment not at work lost in the final book of a trilogy that I LOVE.

~moving on from~Hopefully this cold that has been with me for 2 weeks now. I am finally able to smell things again.

~taking with me~ I got a new keyboard that I'm hoping will help calm my tendonitis so we will see how that goes. So far I'm still unsure about it but I'm only about a sentence into using it. I'm also not known to do well with change.

~quote of the week~This weeks quote comes from one of my work boys...again. Before meals we give an "appreciation" and this one boy has been known to give the prayer from Talladega Nights (if you haven't seen it or just want to see it again, check out the video above). Well Friday at lunch he decided to mix it up something short and sweet and a little dash of Ricky Bobby.

"Dear tiny baby Jesus. Thank you for the little things. Thank you for forks and spoons so we don't have to eat slimy things with our hands.
