Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
My LiveJournal Rises 
23rd-Jul-2012 02:27 am
Just spent the laziest weekend of the year, just screwing off, watching TV and napping. No trip to the beach, no eating out, NO WORKING! Two sick cats seem to be getting better.

And me? I'm out of shape and more than a little out of sorts. I want to start writing fanfic again, and I'm going to learn to use iCloud and my new iPad keyboard so I can start blogging again. I need to get motivated to something more than work and shop. As of last month, this journal is official TEN YEARS OLD. Holy shit.

We survived the midnight premiere of TDKR, but I thought that simply meant managing to stay awake through a LOOOONG, sometimes slow movie. I didn't think we had to watch out for crazed gunman. I can't imagine the horror. Or I can, and it kills me. Am I the only one who wonders if the people in that theater (how many were there--why don't they tell us that???) will ever see the whole movie? And if they ever do, what will they think of it?

And speaking of the movie, I've tried to imagine how it will inspire my fanfic. I think the main fanfic topic would be what happened those eight years since the last one. I get that Harvey is dead, even if I find that as hard to take as Aaron Eckhart does. So what was Mr. Recluse up to that did all that damage to his body? Obviously his mind was dreaming up the source of energy/inadvertent weapon/whatever-the-fuck-it-was thingy that we all knew Bane was going to get his hands on eventually.

May I just mention that Anne Hathaway is the best Catwoman of All Time. She totally shocked me, and took my breath away. That's coming from someone who spent many years of her life as Catwoman. THANK YOU for using the Julie Newmar-inspired version of the costume. And THANK YOU for making the actress take it seriously. She was the real breath of fresh air that ran through the monotonous minutes of GRIM.

On the life front, I cleaned out my home email and found a message from an old friend and colleague who let me know her Jack Russell Terrier, Jack, had to be put to sleep early this month. Charlie and I both cried when we heard it. We often wonder what happened to Jack. It's hard to believe that he was 15 years old! We remember him as a puppy. Anyway, I haven't heard from this woman in years, so it was a complete surprise. It was nice of her to let me know the sad news.

Found this icon of Wishbone to use, considering the death of sweet (old?) Jack... I can't believe he was that old. Time flies when you're having fun...

Yeah, it is weird they don't say how many people were there altogether, isn't it? Do they not know?

I guess there's bound to be lots of other stuff we'll hear about. (sigh)

I can't WAIT until you're writing fanfic again. That ROCKS for me!

I'm so glad we learned about Jack. We wonder about him all the time, and now we know. What a sweet boy he was.

Welcome back, Marilyn! (and you, too, Charlie!)
Life gets in the way so often when it comes to things like LJ.
It's good to see you here again.
I'm sorry to hear about your friend's dog. I have an almost 15 year old terrier.

It's wonderful to know that you are going to take on fanfic again, but I have to be honest and say that I am not sure if I'll be reading much TDKR fanfic.

Ten years in LJ, that's cool.

Always so nice to see you around :)

Hi, there! It's great to 'see' you! Sorry if you're not reading, in case I get around to writing. Your feedback has been wonderful and encouraging. Still, it will be nice to be writing again and getting some of my own angst out in the characters!
