Stealing from my dear Steph today, since I always love her 5 things posts. I like happy posts! I feel like I've been too serious lately, tense. Okay, I HAVE been tense. But I've also been having fun, so maybe I should show it a little.
1. The Downtown Fiction—I Just Wanna Run
I know, I'm 27, but I don't think I'll ever stop liking this kind of music. And this song? PERFECT for Transparent. It's cool to find music that reminds you of your book, even after you've finished writing. This has Fiona written all over it.
I will not tell you how many times I've watched this.
And I certainly won't confess to imagining a character in House of Ivy and Sorrow looking almost exactly like the lead singer.
And, no, I don't know that the lead singer's name is Cameron.
Great, now I sound creepy.
2. Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit
Kick-A female lead? Yes, please. Balsa, a mercenary bodyguard, is charged with guarding a very important person—the second prince, who carries something very valuable inside him.
Love the animation, and the story is fabulous so far. I have about 10 episodes left. It's based on a novel, which is SUPER cool. Usually it goes from manga to anime to, occasionally, a novel. But yay for novel to anime! Dude, if any of my books were turned into an anime series, I would die of happiness.
3. The Voice
Dude, I loved it. I loved the blind auditions. I loved them fighting over the singers. I loved the whole last chance at the dream thing. Yes, I'm cheesy. I don't care.
4. X-Men: First Class
I have always loved X-Men. I grew up watching the cartoon. It was my favorite part of Saturday morning. This move? SO EXCITED FOR IT. I mean, James freaking McAvoy as young Professor? It's like they reached into my brain and made its dreams come true.
5. Making Pretty Cupcakes
I totally made these for Easter. They went over well.
I like cooking more than baking, but I've taken to messing around with cupcakes lately. They're fun. I like pretty things. I like EATING pretty things. And besides, homemade frosting? Way better. If I'm gonna be bad and have dessert, I figure it better be GOOD dessert.
What are you loving today?
