Like I mentioned last week, Fangirls, we knew we weren’t going to make it with the full 31 spooky nights, so we overhauled and watched multiple in one night, and we focused on classic shorts instead of full length movies. Our final count ended up being 25/31, which isn’t as terrible as I expected.
Guys, we are behind. Like, over 10 movies behind. We didn’t get through a ton this past week because I was sick so I was usually asleep by the time Rob got home, plus we had a busy weekend where we drove up to New York to grab some more of my stuff (like my desk and desktop which I’m finally using again). I’m exhausted but less sick this week, so hopefully we can end (mildly) strong, and get closer to the goal.
Though this is only the second time I’m writing about this, we’re actually in our third week of spooky movies. Sadly, we’re a bit behind, as last week we were in Disneyland and a combination of travel and busy-ness halted our movie watching progress, but we’re working on it. Here’s what we’ve watched since last time.
Fangirls, I now live with a dude who is all about that Halloween life, and that means that Halloween starts at the end of this week. We’ll be doing Halloween all month long here, and I can not wait! One of the things this dude has done for quite some time, is watch a different Halloween / Spooky movie every day of October. It’s a great way to keep the fear alive and get ready for Halloween itself! So we’ve got some spooky updates that’ll be coming at’cha, and we’re very excited. We’re going to try to post little miniature reviews of what we watch, and once the list is finalized, we’ll both post it so you can follow along. We won’t be getting too spooky, because I am the world’s largest chicken, but there are some that I’m really excited for!
Fangirls, I’m sure you all know that Netflix is a girl’s best friend. There’s nothing like relaxing after a long day with binge-watching Design on a Dime. It’s nice to be able to watch comforting shows in my living room, but what about when other people are using the TV?
One night a while back, I was trying to watch a video when an ad came on. We all know how annoying ads can be, and I was so happy when I saw a skip button. But then, the skip button went ignored. This ad, while being just over three minutes long, was a trailer for a movie I’d never heard of called The Martian. Like I said, I had that skip button, but within the first five seconds of the trailer, the time until that button works, I was sucked into the trailer. At the end, I discovered the movie was based on a book and I decided I had to read it.
Fangirls, I know we’ve discussed the importance of having female role models in the nerd related media before. Today I would like to talk about body type representation, because it’s something that can be extremely difficult to find for someone of my size.
