happy new year

as I write, fireworks are going off, one by one with a loud POOM.
I have just finished watching 'The Reichenbach Falls', the last episode of season two in Sherlock. I'm a bit of a wreck at the moment, and I can't believe that I'm going to be like this soon, as I'm nearing the end of Merlin and someone told me that when their friend finished, they were a complete mess. *reminds herself not to join a new fandom soon as there will be more wrecks* *does it anyway*

I finally finished my Five Glass Slippers submission and sent it in. What a relief!

season three of Sherlock will be airing on U.K. TV tomorrow and the U.S. gets it on the 19th, I 've heard. AUGH.

I still haven' t been able to watch the Time of the Doctor (last episode of season seven) but my friend found the clip where *spoilers here* eleventh Doctor regenerates*end spoilers* and now I know for sure that I'm going to be another mess soon. I started tearing up from that one little clip.

WHY, Steven, WHY. I blame all future wrecks on Steven Moffat.

yep. very happy new year.

anywho. that's all.
(DESOLATION OF SMAUG. Go see it if you haven't.)

why, hello there...

Hullo, readers!

      We've been ridiculously busy over here; Christmas is only five days away?!
      I only have one more gift to get, people are piling in...I still can't believe Christmas is in the next few days. Last year it dragged by!
      But I might know why it's gone by so fast...

       When we got back from Tampa, Michelle and Christie with Michelle's two boys came over from Virginia (Christie spent Thanksgiving with them) and Stephanie came over and then we decorated...we had to wait until almost the tenth of December to decorate because Michelle wanted to decorate with us.
         Then Stephanie left and came back with her brother and we 'splored New Orleans some more; saw the new movie 'Frozen' and walked around a place lit up with lights everywhere; played card games and laughed too much; and watched movies. I finally watched 'The Mummy' too!
        Stephanie returned her brother and came back with 'Star Trek: Into Darkness', which I convinced Rachel to let me watch as well. It was amazing. I loved it.
       Then with friends, we went to the New Orleans 'Celebration at the Oaks' at City Park. City Park is a place for rides, but Celebration at the Oaks is not only when you can ride the rides at night, but it's completely lit up. It's amazing. We rode the Ferris Wheel and it shut down when Stephanie and I were near the top. (needless to say it got working again) We had the best view, and though we were a little bit scared, it was magical. I mean, that's just the memory of one of life's mini adventures. I loved it!
         But whew, the month...it just flew by. Guys, I'm still in shock.
        I have a favorite actor now. I had a couple, yes, but this time I can pull one out, out of those. Augh. Tom Hiddleston.

This is him in Delayed Gratification with Cookie Monster, which is hilarious by the way.

He drew a picture of himself as Loki to make money to donate to charity; look at him! He's so pleased with the drawing he took of picture of it. He named the drawing '"Loki" by Loki'.
One more picture.
 I love you.
He makes me laugh all the time because he's so silly and laughs at himself all the time.
Seriously, I've never seen any guy as polite, gentlemanly, and hilarious (and sweet) as Tom Hiddleston. He really is.
He loves being Loki; while other actors are like: People assume things about you because of the roles you play, even when what you act like on-screen is not true about you at all.
Then there's Tom Hiddleston (of course, he's Loki): (off-screen) KNEEL BEFORE ME! I have an Army! I am the GOD OF MISCHIEF!
He has so much fun.

 And to end this post, a giveaway!

 You are invited to a Winter Giveaway with Gillian Adams over at ofbattlesdragonsandswordsofadamant.blogspot.com. Enter the giveaway for a chance to be one of three winners of awesome fantasy books!

i am laughing and fangirling so much right now. 
This is his completely silly personality showing. I'm serious, I used to do my silly smiles just like that.

i like to roam around...

Whew what a busy last two weeks! We went up to Zephyrhills so my dad could teach for three days. We had a wedding right afterwards, and on the day of, my dad, Sam, and I hiked 9.1 miles right before we had to get ready.
Then we had thanksgiving at my uncle and aunt's house. That, as usual, was so much fun. Suddenly we're home and it's been a week since the wedding! WHAT?
     Now it's Christmas!! YAY! We were told that we're not allowed to decorate until my sister and sister-in-laws could come home, which is sometime next week.

I decided that to pass the time after school while I wait to decorate, I'm going to see Catching Fire and watch lots of Merlin. Hey, I did a lot of socialising at Thanksgiving. Now I disappear into my world of writing and drawing and reading...and watching Merlin and Doctor Who. I MISSED THE DAY O F THE DOCTOR!! Noooo! I'm determined not to see it until Christie can join me...
