From July 31st to August 14th, my family (minus my brother, the traitor) and I went to Ireland, doing the first family road trip we’ve ever done (seriously, you missed something, brother).
In case you haven’t caught up on it yet, Frodo’s and my vacations are – although always fun! – not the kind of story to share around the campfire for the insanely fun times…
… I like organizing way too much for that.
Plus, it was a family trip, so even if I was the typ to get drunk and do spontaneous crazy fun things (this is not meant in a judgemental way in the least, I have a lot of respect for people who enjoy their life this spontaneously and get let go of control every once in a while. I envy that), this would not have been the place or time to do that.
…my family and I had lots and lots of fun, and I even snuck in a few “nerdy” things to see, because I’m sneaky like that. And that’s the price you pay for letting me organize the entire trip 😉
Disclaimer: I’m trying out this new feature wordpress offers, so I’m sorry for the weird formats and stuff, I’m still trying to figure all of it out. Please be patient with me. (And yes, I did write this post before this one, which is why it’s a bit weirder…)
Purgatory Con was in Düsseldorf on the weekend of June 2nd and 3rd, and of course, we went, just like we did the lastthreeyears! We haven’t fully recovered yet, so we’re still a bit exhausted, a bit sore and a bit hoarse, but still, it was awesome!
We’ve said that Solo: A Star Wars Storywas one of the movies we were excited for this year, and so, naturally, I went to see it the day it came out. And now I’ll put my thoughts about it in writing, cause that’s what we’re all here for.
And worry not, my fellow nerdy people, I shall not spoil this movie for you. That’s right, no spoilers!
I have now seen Avengers: Infinity War twice and feel like I can form coherent, critical thoughts and put them on paper (or a screen)…
Who am I kidding? That movie still has me exactly as f*cked up as I thought it would, and I don’t think I can form anything coherent. And I also doubt I can actually form critical thoughts about it without spoiling it, and I don’t want to do that. So I’m just going to express my emotions with moving pictures of other people showing emotions. Which is my strange way of saying: this post is to be mostly made of reaction gifs.
No spoilers from me! In case you haven’t seen the movie yet and have somehow managed not to be spoiled, I won’t be the one to do it, so you can safely read on.
