I’ve been busy with the RA Silent Auction business and it will likely continue till the auction post is out on Friday, the 28th of November.
A quick reminder, if you’d like to donate an item please email me at RASilentAuction [at] wp.pl.
The deadline for photographs of the item (maximum 3 per item) as well as the description is the 26th of November.
Let me just say that it’s shaping up to be AWESOME!
The pic above shows how a slashy fanart image was used by accident in China to promote Thor 2.
Or was it an accident…. hmmm….
On Friday I took part in a Thor marathon.
The triple feature included Thor, The Avengers and Thor 2.
I’m not the biggest Marvel fan, but I sure do like sexy men running around in super hero costumes, although I question where all the kick-ass women are (I have a Scarlet Johansson allergy, so she doesn’t count…).
Anyway, this wasn’t the first movie marathon I’ve attended, but it most certainly had the lowest average age.
There was a sea of teenagers (and I do mean early teens) which surprised me seeing that the last movie finished at 3.30am.
I was relieved to see a bunch of parents waiting in the cinema lobby to ferry their offspring back home and could imagine my poor dad sitting there at all hours of the morning waiting for me to get my fangirl on.
And by fangirling (or fanboying, as the case may be), I really do mean FANGIRLING!
It was actually adorable to watch then squeee every time Loki/ Tom Hiddleston appeared on screen.
After each movie they’d meet up in the ladies loo to continue discussing how unbelievably hot and adorable that Loki is.
My BFF and I are easily aggravated (cos we’re cool like that!) and we were cracking jokes until I realised that I may have much more in common with these high-pitched braces-wearing loonies than meets the eye.
I have seen The Hobbit: DOS trailer twice in the cinema and both times I was:
– punching the air
– jumping up and down in my seat
– nudging my companions when they clearly seemed to be covering their face with their hands
– panting, salivating, squeezing, huffing and puffing, ready to blow that whole cinema down
And that’s just the trailer, mind…
The truth is, some of us will never grow up, hopefully we never grow old.
Expressing enthusiasm (even if it’s in a public place) is one of the fun things about being a fan.
Running around London and emitting rainbows because you’ve spotted a location where Spooks was shot, getting an issue of Empire Magazine in the post with Thorin growling on the cover (thanks Guylty!!!), holding on to that plastic soft drink cup just because it has The Hobbit written on it…
It’s all part of the fan experience.
I don’t suffer in silence, I certainly won’t explode with glee in silence either.
And I for one intend to continue to embarrass and bug the daylight out of everyone who is stupid enough to go with me to a place that may activate my fangirling🙂
So, what’s your most vivid fangirling experience?
