I Can’t Even…

…think of something to blog about!

I started this blog thinking that I would never run out of things to say. I mean, I talk so much anyway, that blogging couldn’t really be much different, right?

I mean, my week is pretty much planned for me. I’ve got: Mommy Mondays, Try It Tuesdays, Writer Wednesdays, and Fan Girl Fridays. But Thursday gets NOTHING. Even though its one of my favorite days of the week (two words: Vampire Diaries) I often sit at my computer and have NO idea what I am going to blog about!

So, I’m looking to YOU for help, Oh Wise Reader. What would YOU like to see more of? What would YOU like to read? If you had a blog, what would YOU write about? Help me, Reader. You’re my only hope.

Comic Con: A Recap

You’re all probably sick of me writing about Comic Con. And, if you are, then I have only one thing to say to you:

 

 

Now that that’s settled, lets move on.

 

Comic Con was last week and sadly, I was not there. However I did do a lot of internet searching stalking and found out some awesome tidbits about all the nerdy things I (and many of you) love!

 

First up, the movies!

 

Divergent

 

Tris and Four

Tris and Four

At the Divergent panel, the stars talked about the movie adaptation of one of my new favorite dystopian series. From what I gather around the interwebs, the cast was pretty vague about what was going to happen in the movie/how close to the book it would be. Although Shailene Woodley (AKA, Tris) did say she was excited to see how the scene where Christina is held over the chasm turns out in the final cut!

 

Catching Fire

Oh yes, JLaw and JHutch were at this year’s SDCC with all the Quarter Quell scoop! I couldn’t find any video of the actual panel, but I’m really hoping that the guy that plays Finnick was there in his net toga. I’m sure the fangirls would’ve went wild! Even if he wasn’t, they surely flip their lids when they saw the NEW trailer for CF! I dare you to not get goosebumps:

 

Captain America: Winter Soldier

Back off, Black Widow!

Back off, Black Widow!

According to what I’ve read on various geeky sites, the sequel to Captain America is going to be EPIC. We’re going to see Capt. Steve Rogers like we’ve never seen him before. He’s more confident after leading the Avengers in NYC, and is ready to take on anything (except maybe pop culture references that have nothing to do with flying monkeys). And, according to many con-goers, there’s a steamy kissing scene between the Captain and Black Widow. I know a certain sister of mine who is NOT going to be happy about that!

 

Batman/Superman

Zack Snyder pretending to be Chris Hardwick.

Oh yes, my friends, the rumors are true. At the Man of Steel panel, director Zach Snyder broke the news that a Batman/Superman flick is in the works and should be released in 2015! Henry Cavill will come back as the wonder boy from Krypton, as will Amy Adams and Diane Lane. The question is now, who will be Batman? Christian Bale has already said he’s hung up the cowl for good, so he will not be returning. My vote? Joseph Gordon Levitt. I really hope they do this right. Maybe Snyder should call up Joss Whedon for some advice…?

 

And now for the television shows!

 

The Walking Dead

Hey Rick, how you doin'?

Hey Rick, how you doin’?

OMZ. I am so freaking excited for the new season of The Walking Dead! I actually got to watch the trailer online a few days ago (okay, I’ve watched it like, 4 times now) and I got chills Every. Single. Time. The peeps from the jail are back and have a new sense of survival. Rick’s back from his CrazyTown trip and is finally back to the Rick we know and love. Carl’s hair is still growing and Daryl still looks like the hottest homeless man in the world. Now that the whole Woodbury fiasco is over and done with, the show can get back to the main point of it all: ZOMBIES. Holy crap were there a lot of undead walking around in that trailer! Don’t believe me? Just take a look…

 

Vampire Diaries

Like a boss.

Like a boss.

This year’s season finale of VD left me going: “OMG!” and “Whaaa—?”

Whilst I was shocked by some of the things that happened (Bonnie dying, Jeremy coming back to life, Katherine becoming human, and Stefan being Silas’ doppelganger, I was also confused. Why would Klaus just up and leave? (Because of the spinoff, duh) And if the hunters are all alive, why can’t Bonnie be alive too? I thought all the supernatural’s were supposed to cross back through the veil…? Anyway, at Comic Con last week the VD panel showed a new trailer for this season and I am so stoked! I remember when I went to Comic Con and on preview night, we got to see the first episode of the show. I looked over at my sister when the credits rolled and said: “Um, we HAVE to watch this!”

Big Bang Theory

 

From what I gathered, the panel for TBBT was supposed to just be writers…not really something you get too worked up about. But, in true Comic Con fashion, there were a few surprises to be revealed. Melissa Rauch (AKA Bernadette) stepped out to a roar of applause when introduced as the panel’s moderator. When Rauch opened the panel up for questions from the audience, someone dressed as Boushh (AKA Princess Leia’s alter ego in Return of the Jedi) with mask and all, Rauch exclaimed: “Reveal yourself!” To which the Boushh impersonator took off his helmet and replied: “Someone who loves you!” It was none other than Dr. Hofstadter himself, Mr. Johnny Galecki! The crowd of course went wild and Johnny joined the panel of writers. When the audience members asked what we could see in season 7, the writers threw them a bone: we’ll see Leonard on the ship working with Stephen Hawking’s crew, Amy and Bernadette are going to take a trip sans Penny, and when asked if Amy and Sheldon would ever take their relationship to the next level (nudge, nudge; wink, wink) the writer’s said: “It’s a very good possibility!” *Cue the middle school “Ooooooh”s! The panel concluded with a very special (and funny) video from Stephen Hawking:

 

I Love My TV…All My Friends Live There

I am so glad its fall.

The leaves are changing; the house fills with the spicy aroma of pumpkin-filled treats; and best of all, MY TV SHOWS ARE BACK!

Yes, its the time of year when the magical black box in my living lets me have a fly-on-the-wall view into the lives of my favorite fictional friends. I am so excited for this new season. And even though some have already begun, I’ll give you a run-down on what will be showing in the Huffman Home this fall:

1. How I Met Your Mother

Teddy Westside and the Gang.

I honestly hope this is the last season. After a seventh season of Ted still pining after Robin and Barney still womanizing, and still not GETTING TO SEE THE FREAKING MOTHER, I was about ready to call it quits. But those clever producers hooked me when I heard through the blogosphere that next season will most likely be the final season. Now I feel like I have to see it all the way through. It’d be like me eating almost all the Pringles, but still having three left in the can… you can’t just stop. Eat the whole thing!

2. Once Upon A Time

Oh snap! She got a sword! It just got real.

I was a little skeptical about how this show could keep going after the main problem of the first season was resolved in the season finale. At first I was like, “Oh, well that was a nice movie that lasted for six months.” But, when I watched the season premiere last week, I was excited to see that the magical mystery tour of Storybrooke was just beginning! I’ve heard that many more favorite fairy tale characters are going to join the cast (Mulan, Sleeping Beauty, Captain Hook) and I can’t wait to see how the writers put a new spin on the classics!

3. The Vampire Diaries

She’s gets TWO Salvatores AND has hair that pretty?! Not fair.

After last season’s cliffhanger (at which point I said, “OMG, finally!”) I was counting down the days until October 11th! I love this show so much. Not necessarily because of the whole vampire thing (the are so 2010) but because the season starting will bring even more shirtless Ian Somerholder into my life. And I think everyone could use a little more of that.

4. The Big Bang Theory

Achk, mohck! (I said no Klingon, Sheldon!)

Who didn’t shed a tear when Howard and Bernadette got married last season? I mean, this little creepy candy-coated engineer finally got the woman of his dreams (and it wasn’t Katee Sackhoff). Now that Bernie and Howie (and his mother) are riding off into the sunset, where does this leave poor little Raj? And what about Penny and Leonard? I swear, if they break up again, I will go to L.A. myself and kick Chuck Lorre in the molecules. He could, however, redeem himself by having Amy and Sheldon make out. Come on, Chuck, Amy needs some sugar.

5. Doctor Who

Bowties are cool.

Sadly, the season for Doctor Who has already come and gone just like the Ponds. (Sidebar: I’m going to miss the Ponds. Not necessarily because of Amy, but because of Rory. He really was the epitome of the sweet boy next door.) Those Brits really like to tease us as much as they can by whetting our appetites for these shows (a la Sherlock) and then taking them away from us for months on end. Le sigh. I’m already counting down the days to the Christmas Special.

What about you? What fall shows are you looking forward to the most?
