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.

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.)

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!".

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!

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).

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.

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.
