I could not sleep last night. I was literally up 'til 6:30 a.m. I tried to sleep but gave up and played on the interwebs. I was up til 2:30 a.m. as it was working on Con Law. During that time my brain, which isn't all that girly and marriage focused, planned an entire wedding to a guy I don't know in real life. I have GOT to get out of the house. And because I slept all funky and screwed up, I feel a little off today. I don't think Dr Pepper is going to fix my problem.

So! More random thoughts!

1. I am now watching the NHL All Star Game. I feel like you all let me down not cluing me into hockey sooner. Or me not being sparked by it. I dunno. All these guys are HOT. And skating is pretty. (Yep, those are totally rational logical reasons to love a sport. shrug) Though I feel like I'm stepping in Chuck's territory and for some reason that makes me feel bad. And I need to actually learn more. They rattle off these stats and I have no idea what they mean or what I'm supposed to be yelling at the screen. In football I know, "Goddamn summabitch! HIT HIM! HIT! HIM!" In hockey I think I can also yell that but I'm not really sure. Anyway, I hope to stop feeling like a poseur cuz I jumped on this bandwagon like five minutes ago but I'm hoping if I stick with it, I'll be forgiven that.

2. Henry Cavill, recently mentioned as one of my crushes, just got cast as the new Superman. I am conflicted by this. On the one hand: hotness. On the other: Um, his British accent is AWESOME. You're gonna make him talk all American? No bueno. (Someone on twitter said, "Keep him British. Have him be from Kent! Hahaha!") Also: I kinda hate superman. The ex LOVED superman. Which is part of my hate, frankly. Okay, I'm not a big comic book person but: Superman is an ALIEN. He's just straight up a human looking alien. He's from another planet. And he's all red, white, and blue and fuck yeah America! No super tragic backstory (fine, his home planet blew up. But he was a baby and has no recollection of it and was raised by a really nice family). Even his arch enemy is sorta meh. I'm just saying: I'm a Batman fan. There are Batman fans and Superman fans and I think they are very different people. Batman is more cynical and doesn't have the longtime paramour and has crazier enemies. Lois Lane and Batmen Superman (told you I was brain dead today) BUT! Film produced by Nolan, who did Dark Knight and Inception, and directed by Zack Snyder who did 300 and Watchmen. So, there is hope.

3. Related: The Tumblr I use for the fangirl ridiculousness? So I was looking up Henry after the big announcement and all the UK people are saying, "Spiderman, Superman, Batman! All British! Next: the world!" And my thought was lolz, silly teenagers. You already DID that. And then the age of imperialism ended with you getting kicked out of most of your colonies, so, um, yeah, good luck with that. History: better read up on it.
