I don’t read comic books. Sometimes I want to, but it seems like there are so many, I don’t know where to start. Plus I keep seeing images like this, which just makes everything so overly complicated.
It is terrifying! I have talked to my comic booky friends and gotten some suggestions of a good place to start, so I might get onto that at some point, but at the moment all I have experienced are the movies. I am suitably REALLY EXCITED about the Avengers movie coming out this year. You might even say I have gotten a little bit obsessed with it. It started with watching the trailer and squealing over it. Then I found an Avengers tumblr through another person a follow, and looked at all 220 pages of it. That night I had a dream that Wolverine was at my house in motorcyle leathers. Wolverine isn’t in the Avengers (well technically he is, according to my friend) but it was enough of a connection for my brain. I woke up that morning feeling a bit silly but figured that would be the end of it.
A few days later I went and partook in an Avengers Character movie marathon. It was a lovely day, but 10 hours of movie watching is a fair amount of time. You don’t realise how tiring you get watching movies until you do it for almost 10 hours straight. It’s intense. I had been meaning to watch the Hulk movie (even though the actor has changed) and I enjoyed all the other movies when I saw them originally, so it was a good day. Soon after that I had a dream that Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and I were hanging out at a pub. It was strange because he is about a foot taller than me and massive, while I am a tiny lady. I woke up that time getting a bit uncomfortable that it happened again. This didn’t stop me from looking at Avengers stuff online more, though.
Then the night before last I had a dream with Robert Downey Jr in it. I had watched A Scanner Darkly right before going to bed and I recognised him in the dream but don’t know what he was doing in there, but he was definitely in it. It’s getting a bit ridiculous now. While I don’t mind this happening I would prefer it if my brain would space these things out, so I feel less like a perv. But to be fair, what am I supposed to do when the main actors look like this:
I mean, come on.
