"There is just too much sexiness in 'Thor 2'" and other Randoms

The title of this post = the exact words running through my mind while sitting in IMAX watching "Thor - The Dark World" today. I mean, it was too much for me, with Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba just heating up the galaxy. I remember when the purists were up in arms for the first movie that they cast chocolate goodness, Idris in a movie about Nordic gods. Well, Asgard clearly did not suffer from having a bit of chocolate up in the place!!

Thor, Loki and Heimdall - Thor 2 - The Dark World. More like the "Sexy" World

The movie was awesome, though there was just not enough Loki. Tom Hiddleston is a brilliant actor and does Loki so well, that I felt immensely cheated. Still, I enjoyed the few moments they gave us of him, and loved the twist ending. Would love an explanation for that! Man, I am ever so glad I left the work laptop in the corner and decided to get out of the house to 'lime' with great friends. We also did brunch at Chaud Cafe and Wine Bar, and ate a lot, laughed a lot, which was just what the doctor ordered. I am so glad I left the house today. Life needs balance - I constantly have to remind myself of this.

Speaking of doctors, I have what I hope is my last doctor's visit for a long, long time on Monday. This is now my 6th doctor's visit in as many weeks, following many prescriptions, IV fluids, blood tests and an MRI. I always thought MRIs were a quick thing. But lying in this little tunnel for 40 minutes while this machine groaned and moaned while zapping my overworked brain was both annoying and terrifying. So much has been happening recently, but with a great deal of faith, and positive vibes from within and from the awesome people in my life, I am still as fab as ever. I am fine, I assure you.

And the malls are busting out with Christmasness, which typically would annoy me tremendously, but after the scare of the past few weeks, Christmas decorations, parang music and store clerks ridiculously dressed as elves and reindeer seem trifling. I will just deal with it, with a smile. Being accosted yesterday by grumpy reindeer reminded me that I have it pretty good - I could have been working as a reindeer in a supermarket. I felt it for the poor girl, dressed as this reindeer yesterday, trying to be cheery but clearly upset, embarrassed and unimpressed by her life and this outfit. She was the grouchiest reindeer EVER! I gave her a smile and counted my blessings. My biggest worry today is starving myself enough so I can look less like an oompa loompa and more like Athena by the time holiday parties and birthday festivities roll around.

Besides, celebrating Christmas in November also means that all these tiring corporate events have pastelles, which I can kidnap in generous doggy bags and have at my leisure while sitting at home, watching Lifetime.

Pastelles are a local treat at Christmas here in Trinidad and Tobago. I love them!!

I am content.

  1. Hey - not sure what's going on, but adding you to my prayer list. I love your comment "life needs balance." Such a true statement and we can all use that reminder. I'm going to try and remember that the next time I feel like each day is just going from work to chore and back to work again.

    1. Thank you very much, sweet Adrienne. I am fine - it was just a long, long period of uncertainty, but faith took me through and I am back, better and badder than ever! lol. But life does need balance and it is sad that we often forget that.

  2. That poor grumpy reindeer. Glad that you are feeling better. Sadly, I found the MRI tube a relaxing break :) Especially those thumps and thrums.

    What do the pastelles have inside them? I want to try one!

    1. Pastelles can be either chicken or beef and during my short stint as a vegetarian, I also made soy pastelles. They are similar to arepas but are steamed, not fried. I also found the MRI mildly relaxing and actually dozed off but had the worst cramps when I was eventually asked to move. Lying so still for that long does not work for me. lol

  3. ha ha... last night I tell my husband I want to see Thor.. He say, ' Since when?!' (Because he knows I hate comics, violence etc...) I tell him, ' Well for the man-candy.' You ever see a black man blush till he turn purple? loooool. Anyway, I love the three words you ended this with. We have much to be thankful for. We are content.

  4. Did you know that early audiences complained there wasn't enough Loki, so they actually went back and filmed more scenes. Talk about being cheated! If they'd gone with the original version he'd have hardly been in it at all.

  5. Everybody seemed to really like Loki in this one! Honestly, I loved it when he turned into Captain America....probably because I love Captain America...

    1. I have always loved Loki. He is simply the glue that holds that story together. Chris Hemsworth brings the sexy and the brute force but Tom Hiddleston brings the intellect and baddie charm. Love love love.

  6. I was invited to the Thor red carpet premiere in LA and interviewed Tom Hiddleston. What a charmer! Personally, I don't think Hemsworth has anything on him! My site is kellystilwell.com if you want to check out the premiere and interviews :)

  7. Haven't seen Thor 2, yet. Going to the 3D world premiere of Dr. Who. Can't wait to see it with family and celebrate the Who-ness. Hope things after the MRI are going okay or even better. I love seeing Christmas things out early. It's like planning a trip to Disneyland. The anticipation is almost as fun as the day. Enjoy Sharefest.
