HELLOOOOOOO, LJ! Decided I should quit complaining about missing you and just come back. There are things I should be up and doing today (housecleaning, yuck) or could be doing today (PokemonGO!) but I have that gross tight, itchy, achy, burning feeling in my both my feet and up one of my legs which is reminiscent of the start of the MRSA infection I had a few months ago, so I'm trying to keep off my feet. And I should probably be working on Sunday School stuff, but I don't have to have anything prepared for tomorrow because the Youth are helping make lunch for after service, so that can wait. But seriously, if I'm getting another infection, I will CRY because I'm supposed to go to VaBeach on Tuesday to meet up with friend!Amy and Cliff so we can see Blink-182. And Ronnie has his learner's and I've let him drive on the interstate, but only for like 45 minutes to an hour max - he can't do 5 hours of driving, lol.

Anyone else watching Killjoys on SyFy? It's like, space bounty hunters. I love it. We're into the second season right now, and while there are some storylines I'm kinda meh about, I still like it. It's fun. The soundtrack is great. And I love the interaction between the different characters. Johnny is probably my favorite, though I am really fond of Lucy (the ship). I don't approve of the way the pairings have shaked down this season, but I guess I'll live. I like Pawter well enough, but I don't like the idea of her and Johnny. For one, she already had a fling with D'avin. For another, she just always comes off a bit insincere, and I think she will probably either use Johnny or break his heart, or both. I was hoping that when we were introduced to Clara that she would stick around and something could develop between her and Johnny. I really liked Clara, and Johnny did too. Even Lucy did! And Lucy obviously doesn't approve of Johnny dating Pawter (or of Pawter in general, I think, even though she did save Johnny's life that time), so that will never work. Johnny and Lucy are a bit of a matching set, even if Lucy technically belongs to Dutch. Speaking of Dutch, I don't want her with Pree or Alvis or even D'avin for that matter. I don't think we've met anyone on the show so far that is a good match for her. (Dutch is beyond awesome. I love her, no matter how fucked up she is.) Actually, I don't need any of them to hook up with anyone - I just wanna see Dutch, Johnny, and D'avin running around the universe in Lucy taking out bad guys, especially bad guys who are pretending to be good guys. And getting a little help from their friends, because we definitely need more of Pree's sassyness. (And my shipper's heart wants more interaction between D'avin and Alvis.)

Anywho. I have watched so much television this summer it's a little disgusting. The last season of Royal Pains, Containment, Zoo, American Gothic (featuring Jimmy!Steve!), Twelve Monkeys (which has gotten beyond weird, idek what they're doing). Plus, obviously, Netflix: Stranger Things, the new season of Orange is the New Black, whatever that dumb Wet Hot American Summer show is. I'm slowly working my way through my list on netflix streaming, but I also am watching (rewatching) Star Trek DS9 on Hulu (depending on who else is on the netflix/hulu account at the time, I can't always get on the one I want). The kids and I have also been taking advantage of the $5 movies on Tuesdays to see ALL THE MOVIES this summer. I actually think Ice Age: Collision Course has been my favorite. I've seen Star Trek Beyond twice though.

We did see Independence Day Resurgence on Independence Day. I liked it. I don't understand why everyone hated it so much, but I also didn't expect much going in? Like, we loved the first Independence Day because it was FUN, not because it was a cinematic masterpiece. My two main takeaways from the movie: [1] Maybe we need an alien invasion to happen so that we figure out we're all one people. [2] Jake Morrison is an ancestor of Jim Kirk. That need to fly, explore, adventure in space is in the family blood. Jake's cockiness definitley seemed Kirkish to me. Plus, Liam Hemsworth plays Jake, Chris Hemsworth plays George Kirk. Seems legit, right?

There's a rumor that next weekend the drive in is going to show Resurgence and STB, so if I does, we're going. We've only been to the drive in once this season, which is just sad.

I guess I should probably feed my kids dinner. But I am going to try to be around LJ more. And check my friends list! Lol. <3

How'd you feel about the latest OITNB? I was told to expect nothing/bad things and I found it actually good, certainly a little better/as good as last series.

I really liked the latest season! I mean, obviously I didn't like what happened with Poussey, and I cried because I'm a big sap, but it was good storytelling or whatever. I definitely liked this season better than the one before it. I like getting the backstories of the different inmates (even though it does seem illogical that some of them would have ended up in the same prison, given the disparities of their crimes) and a couple of them this season were pretty great. I loved Lolly, and I was glad that Nicky was back because I always liked her character. I do wish they wouldn't have dropped the ball on Daya's storyline - even when Aleida gets out, she doesn't ask about the baby or even her own kids, which is blah to me. (But it shouldn't surprise me - I know that the last time my cousin Stacy got out of prison, she didn't even ask about her kids for the first week or so, but it still doesn't make sense to me!)

Exactly how I felt. I had someone tell me they were offended how the Poussey storyline was handled, but I think for the show that it is it was handled very well. I couldn't stop crying for like 1 1/2 episode TBH. Also, it's timely.

Daya's storyline has fallen down-- the cliffhanger at the end with the gun made totally no sense to me either, of all the people to pick it up. IDK.

I thought it was really well done! (I heard several people complain that her death was unnecessary, but I think they were the type of people who watch shows where no one "important" ever dies, which I don't understand, because death is part of life. Plus, I watched Sons of Anarchy and The Walking Dead - anyone can die.)

oh, yeah! I forgot about that - that made NO SENSE WHATSOEVER! Apparently I blocked it out because it was nonsensical.

Oh my God watching Sons of Anarchy-- that show literally broke my ability to watch it it was so fucked up. I think I skipped a season and went ahead to the last one and JFC WHAT EVEN WAS THAT. That will indeed make you immune to "shocking" deaths TBH.

Also, Poussey's death had a reason-- it was illustrating a big, currently relevant-to-the-world point. IDK. Bleh.
