I successfully hooked my entire family on Sleepy Hollow. Back when we were in Jenny's first episodes, my mom got really outraged on her behalf when Jenny had to go back to the hospital. (I mean, I love Jenny but I have realistic expectations of that scenario, AND AT LEAST SHE WILL BE GETTING OUT SOON!) Mom was walking around afterwards going, "and she has to go back into that place and get drugged up? NO. THAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. NOT. ACCEPTABLE." And I'm following her around feeling pleased that she's so invested but wanting defend Abbie, lol.
I went to see Despicable Me 2 tonight with some friends I was trying to reconnect with because I wasn't interested in Catching Fire, and the animation was charming and the characters engaging but...it was kind of a racist, sexist mess. Within the first thirty seconds of the 'spicy Latin Luchadore villain with the Mexican flag tattooed on his chest' appearance I was sitting there seething with my face hot. (The bullshit 'feathered headdress' in the end scenes was a real cherry on top.) Between this and white girls walking around in ridiculous 'sugar skull' makeup like it's a cartoon Halloween costume....(I mean...I dunno? My mom's always just pleased people are participating in the holiday, and I guess it's not a big deal, but - especially this year, dealing with the anniversary of my aunt's death and the altar. It's not a cutesy thing, but it's also not as if its gloom and doom and dirges. IDK why I got kind of upset.)
Not feeling too good lately brain wise. I've been pushing myself to get out more and it's taking its toll.
Well, I've been using goggles in my swim lessons after the first disastrous session when I forgot, but I'm still running into walls and gouging chunks of flesh off because I'm just that smooth.
