This Week in Fun…

Let’s share!

Movies

 
Underworld: Awakening

Underworld: Awakening

The most recent movie in the Underworld series did a good job of distracting me from my Con crud cold. They definitely left it open at the end to make another, and I would watch that one too.

When I’m sick I like to pick out girly, chick flick movies that I may not otherwise watch. I had two in mind and this one was available. This is on deck for later today.

   
   

TV

 
Game of Thrones: Season 1

Game of Thrones: Season 1

Completed Season 1 this week. Outside of some character’s storylines being revealed earlier in the show than in the book (I assume for balance in the new medium?), all was basically as I remembered it happening. Grant had not started the book before watching the show, so I repeatedly had to hold myself back from chatting about something that could reveal some upcoming storyline tidbit. 😉

True Blood: Season 4

True Blood: Season 4

Finished Season 4 this week. I like how they started working in more of the storylines from the books. I can’t wait for Season 5!

Hell on Wheels: Season 1

Hell on Wheels: Season 1

I think I fell asleep part way through the Pilot, but I was watching in bed and that was the point. I could tell right away that this show would be right up my ally. I really like what I’ve seen so far. 🙂 I must have been super tired to fall asleep during something this interesting. This one has officially been re-categorized from Bedtime Fodder to Watch While Making.

Season 1, Pilot

   
Vampire High

Vampire High

This one is solidly in the Bedtime Fodder category. I was laughing at how corny it was in the beginning, but it has grown on me a little. Interestingly, key elements of the Vampire Diaries, Vampire Knight, and Twilight series seem to be borrowed from this earlier TV show from the aughts. Whether they are original concepts to Vampire High, I do not know. (I have not yet read the Vampire Diaries books from the 90s, so it’s possible Vampire High is doing the borrowing here.)

Season 1, Episodes 1-12

   
   

Video Games

 
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

It turns out last time when I thought we were about 2/3 done, we were actually more like 1/3!

2/3 done (for reals this time!)

   
   

Crafting

 
Knitting New Mittens and Gloves: Warm and Adorn Your Hands in 28 Innovative Ways

Knitted Christmas Gift

I’m still working on the same gift, so here is another neato book! This one is my current favorite: Knitting New Mittens and Gloves: Warm and Adorn Your Hands in 28 Innovative Ways

Out and About

 
PAX Prime 2012

PAX Prime 2012

Too much happened to go into it all here. 🙂 The best things were the nice hotel, dressing up, hanging out with new and old friends from around the world, an epic game of Cards Against Humanity, and the Board Game Free Play room!
