Hunger Games  
Read the Hunger Games books this week. I'd rented the movies, though I fell asleep part way through two - twice. Books weren't bad, though definitely not a cheery read. By the time you get to the end, you have the urge to get totally drunk and sing Disney tunes. Should make for a movie where you'll just want to cling to your friends after it's all over.

Speaking of Disney tunes -- the rendition of the song from Pinocchio on the Age of Ultron trailer is exquisitely creepy.

This Is Getting Silly  
Yes, I'm sick, again. Or it's an extension of the last sickness, I don't know. It's not the flu, but it's worse than a cold. I shall just call it Rufus the Sick. Now if I can just avoid the actual influenza, I will be happy.

I did have some fun this afternoon though - did a Twitter rewatch of Avengers with my Magnificent 7 twitter peeps. We had an international gathering, and the hashtag was #punygod. I was a little slow with the tweeting as my hurty head really wasn't digging me trying to multitask, but we had a good time.

On the TV front, Scandal keeps me coming back for more, and was happy to have Lost Girl back. The rewatch of Mag 7 continues, and we're now a little more than halfway through S2.

We were going to go to the movies tomorrow, probably Les Miserables, but I don' think I'm going to be up to it. Plus, I've heard it's a multiple tissue movie, and I don't think my poor lungs could handle it.

Yule Log  
I posted this as part of Twelve Days of the Avengers, and thought I'd share it here.

For Day Two of The Twelve Days of the Avengers is a recipe. Two Xmas's back, I wrote a short story called String of Pearls, where Nick Fury plays Santa Clause, and there was Christmas dinner. Even if it never makes the actual story, I always mentally plan the menu - yeah, I'm weird. One of the desserts was a Yule Log, and here's a recipe.

Avengers  
It was finally playing at the faux IMAX in Springdale, so we went and saw it one last time on the big screen. Then we came home and watched the movie with the Joss commentary. I think I'm in the mood now to write the sequel to Whites As Snow, since it takes place during the movie, I've been pondering the logistics.

Speaking of the DVD, actually it's the BluRay, it's just they're DVDs to me.... Anyway, I was really disappointed that after months of hearing about 45 minutes of deleted scenes, there were a paltry 13 minutes on the disc. And all but one, I'd seen on YouTube already. Maybe they're saving them for the Phase One box set coming out in the spring. I also need to see how to access the Easter egg I read about, security footage of Loki in the cell. And see if there are other Easter eggs.

So looking forward to IM III!

You know what would be awesome?  
An Avengers/James Bond fic.

I think this may have been inspired by listening to Adele's 'Skyfall'.

I'm Going to Sic Loki On Them  
Despite what I posted yesterday, that rumour had it there was something extra added to the end of Avengers for this week's re-release, there was not :( It was great seeing it again in the theatre, but a bit of a let down all the same.

Watch ‘The Avengers’ in Theaters This Labor Day Weekend

Not that I think it will play in our boonies section of the US, but awesome!

They're telling people to sit through the credits....

Why ask viewers to sit through the credits again? Adding something new would certainly be one way to guarantee more return viewers who’ve already seen the film on its first theatrical run. It would also be good opportunity to tease Iron Man 3 which opens next summer as well, considering near-finished footage was played at Comic-Con in July to much praise. Iron Man 3 is nearing the completion of shooting as Thor: The Dark World prepares to begun production in the UK so there’s a lot to tease.

A Few Days?  
I'm looking at that Marvel Timeline of events leading up to Avengers, and it's confusing me. I wanted a general idea of how much time had passed since the end of Thor/IM II to the Avengers. 3 or 4 days? Really? That doesn't even make sense, so I must be reading their timeline wrong. [scratches head]

ETA: especially as Tasha says to Banner that he's gone a year without an incident. Looking at that timeline, that wouldn't fit.
