Nephew!!! And I Fangirled Dean/Cas In A Public Place.  
I swear, if I posted more than once a week, I would be able to tell you all the things that have been going on with me - movies I watched and games I played and crazy family stories and how the tornado sirens went off for the first time this year and about my grandpa.

But clearly, I am just going to skip all of those things. And skip right to...

I HAVE A NEW NEPHEW!

His name is Tyler and he was born late Saturday night. He is doing good, as is his mom - (this is my brother and his French Canadian wife, not the little brother who lives here in MI). Anyhoo, they have already informed us that we are not allowed to call him "Ty", which whatever, get over it cuz I'm gonna. Tyler was jaundice for a few days, which is not unusual for babies, but they didn't send him home until yesterday. So last night we got on the webcam thingy and got to see him, though mostly we spent the time talking to my niece. She is 18 months old and apparently unsure about the baby. When they picked her up from her grandparents on their way home from the hospital, they put her in the seat next to Tyler and she pointed at the baby and started screaming hysterically - ALL THE WAY HOME. She seemed settled by the time I talked to her though.

Welcome to the World, Tyler.


Now onto my today...

I started my physical therapy back up today. Mostly for upper body strengthening, but also because I have been having some clenching on the inside edge of my hip - muscle or joint, I was unsure. For a refresher and those new to the class - Kevin was my physical therapist when I was 13 until I was 19, and I started seeing him again last year. So, he knew me when I was a foul-mouthed little punk-ass kid who liked fire and swearing and smoking and..you get the idea.

Here is this conversation I had at therapy today...

There is this aide named Sheri - (the one who saw Jensen on my tshirt and yelled, "OMG, Eric Brady!") - she is a cool lady and has these three teenage kids. The BFF loaned out her copy of SPN season one to Kevin last summer and it ended up making the rounds in the therapy office. So Sheri took it home and she didn't get into it but all of her teenagers get addicted to SPN. So we had this conversation today while Kevin was stretching me...

S: My kids are marathoning SPN and everytime I see it, I think of you and wonder how you are doing.
Me: Oh, that's nice, Sheri. /smile/ I don't want to talk about SPN right now, though. I'm still pissed off about the finale. /less smile/
S: I was in the room when they watched the finale, let's see if I can remember what happened...
Me: I'll tell you what happened. /no smile/ Castiel went insane! And now Dean probably has to kill him! And he can't kill Cas because CAS IS THE ONLY REAL FRIEND DEAN HAS EVER HAD AND NOW HE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO KILL HIM BECAUSE CAS WENT INSANE AND HE CAN'T KILL HIM AND I'M SO PISSED OFF, I DON'T EVEN WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT!!!

Then I hear this weird thudding noise and I look over and Kevin has put his head down on the exam table because he is laughing so hard that he can't stop.

Me: THIS IS SERIOUS, KEVIN! IT'S NOT FUNNY! IT'S SERIOUS BUSINESS!
Kevin: /still laughing and gasping for breath/ I know it is. /pats my leg with his head still on the table/ I'm sorry,

I DON'T THINK HE WAS SORRY! I THINK HE WAS LAUGHING AT MY PAIN! Though not my physical pain, because that would be unprofessional, yo.

Anyways, my hip didn't hurt at all this morning, but now due to the hour and a half of poking and prodding at therapy, it hurts like a motherfucker. We did discover that at least some of it is muscle though. Since he pushed on the muscle and my whole leg jerked and tried to kick him in the face (that's what he gets for laughing about Dean and Cas!). That it is a muscle is actually a good thing, because it means therapy will help.

But now I hurt and am tired and must go to bed because TOMORROW I GO SEE "X.0" - or "X-Men: First Class", as it is actually called. Whatever, I like my name better.

That is all.

I like X.0, its appropriate and I'm looking forward to seeing it this weekend.

Yay for your nephew!

I like X.0, its appropriate

Thank you! I mean, I own X1.5 (the special edition) and X2, so this should be X.0, right? Just make sense. ;)

I can't believe the new nephew is a week already. I hope he isn't too big before we get to see him.
i want to huggle you (and your little dog, too): fun fridayblue_fjords on June 3rd, 2011 02:11 pm (UTC)
CONGRATS ON THE NEPHEW!!!!! That's awesome. Damn, I love babies.

Am in Nashville this weekend. Should be interesting w/ all the different finale reactions. Next time, kick Kevin in the face, no accident about it.
dodger_sister: motherdodger_sister on June 6th, 2011 02:12 am (UTC)
THANK YOU! I love babies too - I'm such a sucker. I just wish they lived closer - his sweet baby smell will be gone by the time I get to meet him!

That's right! You are going to the con (or were at the con, I guess, at this point). I bet everyone's reactions were different to the finale but that they can all agree that we can't stand the wait until next season!

Next time, kick Kevin in the face, no accident about it.

It's like he doesn't understand how serious this is! He should know better too, since his girls are all a bunch of mini fangirls - last time I was in there, his girls were going through a Buffy phase. He really ought to know better than to mock a fangirl at this point! ;)

Poor niece! I don't blame her; babies scare me too. :P And yeah, "Ty" fo sho. Because Tyler is too long and not affectionate-sounding!

Am I bad because I laughed at your mental pain too, even if I share it? I think it's because of the way you told it. Bonus on muscle instead of joint and bone, too.

I'm scared to see X.0. I just know I'll be pissed at the mixing up of characters' histories and timelines and so on and so forth. Grrr. But I will probably see it anyway. Eventually.

I guess my niece saw the baby when he was in the hospital, but he was asleep under the warming lamp - so she freaked when he was in HER car. Babies don't freak me out - it's creepy little kids who just stare at you and don't speak or blink and are just creepy!

I'm going with TY but apparently the niece can't say "Tyler" so she has been calling him "Tiger grrrrr" <--just like that with the sound effects, no wonder she was scared of him, she thought he was a tiger! lol

Am I bad because I laughed at your mental pain too, even if I share it? I think it's because of the way you told it. Bonus on muscle instead of joint and bone, too.

No, no, you were suppose to laugh - it was funny. I mean, not funny that Cas is insane, but funny that I can't contain my fangirlness and exploded in public and also funny that Kevin literally was trying not to laugh and just couldn't stop himself.

Thank you! I don't look forward to working through the muscle pain, but at least it means I can do something for it!

I'm scared to see X.0. I just know I'll be pissed at the mixing up of characters' histories and timelines and so on and so forth. Grrr. But I will probably see it anyway. Eventually.

Okay, first of all, if you even only kind of ship Charles/Erik, GO SEE THIS MOVIE!! The actors brought everything to the screen that we got from Stewart and McKellan. Here's the thing and how I look at it - Marvel, and X-Men in particular, have many canons, many universes and sub-universes and there is no way they can get everything right in every movie, because there are so many variations. BUT, they stayed true to their own movie-canon. I know you are hardcore into the comics, so I warn you to go into it thinking of this as a canon of its own. Myself, they only changed one thing that I had a problem with and they made up for it by giving me all the Charles/Erik a fangirl's heart could handle - (I had to bury my face in my sister's shoulder at one point to keep from making too much noise of delight).
Ironlily - Making My Marquevikingprincess on June 6th, 2011 01:45 pm (UTC)
But that's the problem: they haven't stayed true to their own movie canon! Origins: Wolverine changed things around from the first three X-men movies, and now X:0 has changed it even more, particularly with Emma and Mystique. So, boo on that. I was okay with the movies being their own new canon until those, even if their treatment of the Phoenix saga was reprehensibly stupid. (But you already know how I feel about that mess....)

Still, as I say, I'm sure I'll go and see it. Or rent it. And then I'll stick my fingers in my ears and go "lalalala" a whole lot! (I don't particularly ship Charles and Erik as anything but tragically separated BFFs, but I can completely understand how people do.)

dodger_sister: the x-mendodger_sister on June 7th, 2011 02:15 am (UTC)
I'll admit, I don't remember Origins: Wolverine that much beyond the Hugh-Ryan-Dom-Explosions combo package - like plotwise and such. You are right, there is no explanation for why Emma is in this movie and I did find that odd. I don't want to give any spoilers, so I won't talk about Mystique, but they do address it.

We were just watching X2 the other day, here at my house, and we saw Jean's amazing death scene and how they didn't overplay it - and yet the scene between Logan and Scott where they are clutching each other in the plane - it was just so well done and makes it all the more sad how they handled everything with her in the third movie. I should rewatch my cartoon series, they cover the Phoenix Saga in there, I'm curious as to how they handled it.

I never remember shipping Charles/Erik in the comics really, but the movies made it so obvious I felt like, "duh" after seeing them - that has to be attributed to the fact that McKellan and Stewart ooze chemistry.

You feel free to spew at me about the movie when you get to see it eventually - I would enjoy a non-bias view, since all I have is a fangirl squee of "Charles/Erik 4evah!".
Ironlily - Making My Marquevikingprincess on June 7th, 2011 02:37 am (UTC)
Omg, I totally just rewatched all three X-movies this past weekend, too - even X3! Geeks of a feather squee together? :P You're right about the scene on the Blackbird. It made it that much worse that Cyke died early on in that piece of almost-complete excrement.

I need another movie in that 'verse, though, one that has Mags with his powers restored, and Rogue with hers (as well as what should be her normal complement of hardcore female badassery, because those movies crippled her liek whoa), and Mystique with hers, and no Jeanness whatsoever, please!

Oh, I'm sure that I'll spew WAY MORE than you want to hear about X:0 when I see it. Yes. There will be great spewage.

You should watch not only the 1993-1998 X-men cartoon over again, but you should also watch as much of X-Men: Evolution as you can. Those reimaginings of the characters made sense and were big fun. Even if Gambit has some seriously bad hair in it!

Omg, I totally just rewatched all three X-movies this past weekend, too - even X3! Geeks of a feather squee together?

heehee YES. What else is a fangirl gonna do on opening weekend of X.0? Though I didn't have to rewatch X1 because I just rewatched that like two weeks ago - (when the trailers for First Class really hit the airwaves hard - I just had to throw it in and watch).

I need another movie in that 'verse, though, one that has Mags with his powers restored, and Rogue with hers

Yes, I was sure they were setting it up - they need to get on that as soon as McKellan gets back from NZ. I doubt they will at this point though. I want Rogue to fly, when will that happen? Even my little nephew was watching the first movie and was all, "How come she doesn't just fly away?" and I had to explain that she couldn't do that yet and he was all, "Maybe when I watch the other movies then." I didn't have the heart to tell him that never happens in the movies.

I love my original cartoons for sheer nostalgia (and Jubilee!) but everything I saw of Evolution was great (I have a guilty pleasure for teen soaps, so the combo of them being teenagers with the X-Men element was great) - I also have seen the first 8 or so episodes of "Wolverine and The X-Men" which came out a few years ago and really loved that. The whole series is on dvd now I think and my sister and I were just talking this weekend about how we need to go buy it.
Ironlily - Making My Marquevikingprincess on June 8th, 2011 02:45 am (UTC)
Part of the reason for writing Reeducation in the first place was because SciFiGrl47 and I hated X3 so much. Plus, there was no Gambit present, which just wouldn't do. Like, at ALL. :) It started as a game and then turned into an epic. And Rogue, by God, flies.

I really enjoyed W&tXM, except for two things. One, it was only one season long. And two, not enough (you guessed it!) Rogue and Gambit.
Trigger Warning: Lifematchboximpala on June 4th, 2011 02:47 am (UTC)
Hahahahaha Oh my god, I just want to follow you around all the time. I am sure Kevin went home that night to tell all his family and friends about how that crazy fangirl that comes into his office was having a conniption fit about the season finale of a tv show.

You kill me.

To completely change the subject, many congratulations to you for being a new aunt and to your brother for being a new dad!

Oh my god, I just want to follow you around all the time.

hahaha Well, I do always say that stalking is a valid profession!

Kevin went home that night to tell all his family and friends about how that crazy fangirl that comes into his office was having a conniption fit about the season finale of a tv show.

Sadly, for Kevin anyways, he remembers my "ER" days. I wasn't as hardcore about ER as I am SPN, but still...the days of my Dr. Ross fangirl screaming. Also, his teenage girls are all fangirls - (last I checked they were watching all of Buffy for the first time!) - so he should be used to it at this point! Though he says I am a bad influence because I introduced them to SPN and now they sneak away to watch it when they are suppose to be doing their homework.

To completely change the subject, many congratulations to you for being a new aunt and to your brother for being a new dad!

Thank you! I think they are coming for a visit at the end of the summer, so I'll get to see Tyler in person then.

Aw, nephew! Congrats!

KEVIN DOES NOT UNDERSTAND OUR PAIN! *wails* CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS! DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAN!

Dammit, I was trying not to think about it.

Oooh, have fun with X.O! (love the name) I will have to see it SOOOON! As soon as I have any money whatsoever... And then maybe I will understand why Alex Summers is like all grown up way back when Prof X was young, and how come Emma Frost is in this movie when she was in Wolverine, and OMG WAS THAT REALLY BANSHEE I SAW FLYING BY?!
dodger_sister: the x-mendodger_sister on June 6th, 2011 02:39 am (UTC)
Thank you! This makes one niece and two nephews now!

KEVIN DOES NOT UNDERSTAND OUR PAIN! *wails* CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS! DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAN!

HE SHOULD!! After Season 5 finale he dared to ask me about it and I am pretty sure I started crying in the middle of my workout! And his teenage girls are all fangirls - so he should know better than to mock a fangirl's pain!!!!!!!

Dammit, I was trying not to think about it.

Sorry, bb, I'm trying too.

And then maybe I will understand why Alex Summers is like all grown up way back when Prof X was young, and how come Emma Frost is in this movie when she was in Wolverine, and OMG WAS THAT REALLY BANSHEE I SAW FLYING BY?!

I will just say this - don't go into it thinking it will mesh with every comic book canon ever. Because that's impossible - there are too many comic-canons. Just think of the movies as their own canon here. I can't remember if there was an explanation on Emma Frost, but everything else lined up with the canon of the other movies. There was only one major thing I had a problem with in regards to comic-canon too. Also, if you even remotely slash Charles/Erik - this movie is made of so much win for those two, the actors were amazing, the chemistry was great and if anyone asks me - I'm telling them it was an epic romance movie. You let me know what you think!

(did you want me to actually answer that question about Banshee for you?)

He SHOULD!

Sorry, bb, I'm trying too.
Right after the finalie, I checked my Youtube subscriptions, saw all these Cas vids that I just KNEW where going to be heartbreaking, and thought "I'll wait until I'm not so emotionally broken over this, then I can watch them." Then two days ago, I log on to Youtube, thing "Hey, it'll probably not be THAT bad," start watching them, and promptly break down crying.
Why do I DO this to myself? *shakes head* It was a vid about Dean and Cas' relationship thoughout the seasons, and... just... Why am I talking about this, I'm just gonna make you sad too! Sorry!

Yeah, no, I don't expect them to mesh that well with the comic canon - like you said, WAY too many different canons - but I feel better now that you said it complies with the movie canon.
Gah, I want to see it so I can discuss it with you!
Haha, not really a fan of either Prof X or Magneto, but I can totally see the slashy-ness. Looking forward to seeing what it's like with these actors. :)

(Heh, no, don't answer that, I think I want to make a little squeey sound if it's actually him when I see it. :P)
dodger_sister: the x-mendodger_sister on June 7th, 2011 02:29 am (UTC)
I know, bb, just when I think I am okay enough to think about/talk about the way things were left between Dean/Cas at the end of the season - then I try and I am right back to freaking out!

It was a vid about Dean and Cas' relationship thoughout the seasons, and... just... Why am I talking about this, I'm just gonna make you sad too! Sorry!

Um, sometimes I enjoy a cathertic release cry-fest, you know, like it relieves stress and stuff - so, um, can I have a link, please? Then we can cry together. I was so pissed off, I seriously thought I might not watch next season - but clearly I am going to watch it while I cling to some small thread of hope that EVERYTHING WILL BE OKAY!!

X.0 - The only thing I can think of in the new movie that can't be explained in relation to the other movies, is Emma Frost being there - but honestly, January Jones was just so hot as Frost that I can't be bothered to care. If I had a penis, it would have been hard that entire movie. What? Was that TMI? /shrug/ Still true though.

I don't think I ever slashed Charles/Erik until the movies came along, but Ian McKellan does that to me - I just find him highly attractive, no matter his age. But this movie - just WOW with the slash. Also, there is a case for another pairing in this movie, but I won't say, cuz spoilers and all, plus I want to see if you see it too. I'm wondering if I was the only one.

I think I know who you saw that you think is Banshee, but I'll keep my mouth shut on all of the characters they chose for the X-kids.
wolfrider89: D/C <3 :Dwolfrider89 on June 8th, 2011 07:54 pm (UTC)
Here you go! Crying material ahead. I know what you mean about a good cry, it totally helps. EVERYTHING WILL BE TOTALLY OK! OK?! The ponies says so. (You have to look at these, they're so damn adorable it's not even funny. Except for how it totally is. Pony!Dean had a hoof print on his shoulder!)

What? Was that TMI? /shrug/ Still true though.
Haha, we're fangirls, sometimes I think there's no such thing as TMI. I'm looking forward to seeing what you mean. (I finally have money! I'm so very, very happy!)

Now I'm all curious about what other pairing you might have seen. *gets impatient and wants to see movie NOW* :)
dodger_sister: deancasdodger_sister on June 20th, 2011 02:52 am (UTC)
That Dean/Cas Vid - BABY, BABY, BABY!! I don't even know if I should be CRYING or jumping up and down with DELIGHT!!!!

Let's start with the delight!! TWO days ago - The BFF says to me, "There is a new Mumford and Sons song I heard that is so Dean/Cas, it has to go on the Dean/Cas mix I am making. Look it up on the internet and have a listen." Just now, I'm watching this vid and I'm like, "OMG, I LOVE THIS SONG! Listen to the lyrics!! I have to tell The BFF so she can put it on that music mix she is making!!!!" and then it gets to the end of the vid and it says it is MUMFORD & SONS and OMG, BABY!!! DELIGHT.

Now the crying. The audio lines this person choose say EVERYTHING about Dean/Cas' relationship! Also, some vids for slash use looks and faces like - okay, there is a vid I saw the other day for Dean/Sam that used a look that I remember specifically was actually from a scene where Dean was talking to Cas - this vid didn't do that to manipulate it to look like Dean was giving Cas those looks, because HE REALLY WAS!! Watch me wave my OTP flag, bb!! DEAN AND CAS FOREVER WITH HEARTS!!

It shows how Cas gives eveything to Dean, EVERYTHING, and how Dean is so broken by the betrayal and omg, some of the scenes they used, I had blocked it out of my head all of the pain and angst they shouldered between the two of them in the last three or four episodes and omg.

I am shaking and delighted at the same time and if I can calm down, I will go watch it again!!!!!

PONY!DEAN has the mark on his arm, YES, YES! PONY!CAS is wearing a tie!! SQUEE!!

Just wanted to share my reaction to the vid. 8)
wolfrider89: D/C panic roomwolfrider89 on June 20th, 2011 06:58 pm (UTC)
I was JUST thinking about this vid, wondering if you'd watched it yet, and then I go to check my inbox and there this comment is! It's fate! Or... something. Nevermind, my brain is TIRED.

Haha, that's so cool! I'm listening to it right now, and so far, it's VERY Dean/Cas. (I must admit to a certain blocking out from last time. I seem to do that a lot regarding sad Dean/Cas stuff lately)

The audio lines this person choose say EVERYTHING about Dean/Cas' relationship!
RIGHT?! I'm starting to sniffle a little just from listening to the song now...

Watch me wave my OTP flag, bb!! DEAN AND CAS FOREVER WITH HEARTS!!
*waves flag right along with you*

I'm going to have to go look at this vid again, now. It's just so brilliant. Dammit. Here comes the crying...

Adorable ponies are adorable! :D
dodger_sister: deancasdodger_sister on June 23rd, 2011 05:57 am (UTC)
Dude, the next day in the car on the way to my therapy appointment, I was squeeing so hard and loudly to The BFF about this vid and this song and how she was talking to me about the song and you were talking to me about the vid...and by the time I got to my physical therapy appt, I had almost lost my voice. lol

DEAN/CAS FOREVER WITH HEARTS!!

Congratulations on the new nephew!! And of course you'll call him Ty. That's what aunties do, give nicknames and the good presents and all that.

Yay for it being muscle and not the joint or bone since either of those would really suck. And I swear, for all the good physical therapists do for you they are all secretly sadists. So good on you for nearly kicking him in the face! lol

Yes, I will be referring to the movie as X0, *nods* it really is appropriate. I saw it my self over the weekend and will have a post up of all my squeeing here eventually.
dodger_sister: motherdodger_sister on June 7th, 2011 02:37 am (UTC)
Thank you!! The Nephew called me to say, "Hey, did you know I have a new cousin?" heehee It was cute.

That's what aunties do, give nicknames and the good presents and all that.

That's right! We give out the loudest, most ridiculous presents too - with all flashing lights and whizzing whirlygigs!

And I swear, for all the good physical therapists do for you they are all secretly sadists.

hahaha As we were leaving the waiting area, The BFF said, "How did it go?" and I said, "Kevin's a sadist. And not the good kind." - "There's a good kind?" lol

He deserved to get kicked in the face anyways - at least all the ladies there understand my pain about Dean & Cas! Or are humoring me because they are afraid I will kick them in the face. Whatever. ;) But yes, thank you, though the muscle thing is painful after he works on it, it is something we can actually fix - so I am happy.

Yes, I will be referring to the movie as X0, *nods* it really is appropriate. I saw it my self over the weekend and will have a post up of all my squeeing here eventually.

Why, thank you - everyone seems to be of the same mind that "X.0" is an excellent title. They changed a few things, but there was so much hotness and slash and the relationship between Charles & Erik (whether you slash them or just see bffs) was so spot on, that I am a happy, happy girl. Happy.
