[livejournal.com profile] bigscary and I have been going back and forth on Tumblr about Mass Effect and how much I love all the aliens. (I LOVE THEM SO MUCH, YOU GUYS.) And as much as he's obviously wrong about the vastly superior Garrus, it's kind of one of those stupid nerd fights that charge the batteries as much as anything. It also makes me miss Mass Effect like a sunovabitch. (Except for the humans. Except for most of the humans.) God, that is probably my favorite game series ever. I miss it, so, so much.

I know they're making another one. I kind of don't want it. Unless it's totally about the universe after Shepard did what SHE did (because it's not Fem!Shep, it's fucking Shep), in which case, sure, sign me up. I want to hear all about Joker and EDI's adorable cyborg grandbabies and how Liara is still alive and no one else is and how that makes the historian even more the bearer of memories of times gone by. I want to see an entire planet be OVER IT with Javik's 'tude.

But Shepard is gone. She should stay gone. I want a new hero. I want to play one of the reputedly awesome Krogan ladies. An Asari Justicar. I would play a goddamend Rachni. (It would probably be like playing a Xenomorph, like in my other favorite game ever, Aliens vs Predator.) I want to be an alien and have to learn to think like they do and not force them to be cool with how humans think because humans are boooooooooooooooooooooooring. I want my alien wrecking crew. Okay, so maybe I can take a sequel.

Just...not a movie, okay? Especially not a movie with dude!Shep. I cannot.

So President Obama says he thinks gays should be able to get married. I'm going to choose not to be cynical and focus on how he then backed up to say "But, uh, states should do what they want," especially since North Carolina (state motto: "One day, we'll catch whatever venereal disease our power bottom state has and be twice as crazy!") just happened. I'm going to recognize the significance and urge people to continue putting the pressure on and the reinforcement coming. The POTUS said gays should marry. It's a big deal. We need to continue to work on tolerance issues (bullying, anti-gay hate crime, job discrimination) on the small scale to drive home the point that gay people ARE PEOPLE such that states will eventually catch up to the newly evolved Obama.

Speaking of the gays, you know what I saw five minutes of this weekend? Urban Legends: Final Cut. Which features a sexy lesbian (played by Eva Mendes, no less) who just happens to be a lesbian. ASTONISHING, RIGHT? I cannot believe I'm saying this about that shitty movie, but we could really do with more of those. Just, you know, to have around. And while I'm throwing out magical liberal wishlists for the motion picture industry, please employ more people of color and more women in roles other than "mother" or "girlfriend." K THNX BAI.

Okay, time for more fun Avengers stuffs. Check out the comments on this io9 post (careful, spoilers) for some truly awesome Hulk animated gifs. I could watch the top one alllllll day. And while we're on the subject of Hulks, why don't we let one tell us what makes an interesting one? (Again: SPOILERS) No spoilers here: a truly awesome Black Widow poster. It reminds me strongly of James Bond's credit sequences in the 1960s. Very mod, very chic, very sexy, still powerful. And there's a Hawkeye one, but it's got nowhere near the level of sophistication and class, I'm afraid.

Everywhere I turn, people are trying to spoil The Avengers for me by telling me what to think of it. I don't want to know! So I'm going radio silent until this evening. I hope I make it to 8:30.

Most of the time, I like knowing what people thought going into a movie. I like to have a general feel about the thing and what to expect so I can modulate expectations. But when I'm reeeeeally excited, I need not to know that you thought it was "okay" or "pretty great" or "not so good" (NOTE: THOSE ARE NOT ACTUAL REVIEWS I'VE SEEN FOR THE AVENGERS. I MADE THOSE UP. I WILL NOT SPOIL YOU IF YOU DO NOT SPOIL ME.) I've gone into two movies in my recent life not knowing what to expect, like, at all: Inception and Cabin in the Woods. Both benefited immensely from that, Cabin in the Woods perhaps more so. In a world where everything is known before you get to the theater, thanks to trailers and gossip sites, it's a rare privilege to enjoy things almost without knowing what to expect, you know?

So, yes, text me if you need something, or e-mail, but I'm going to read boring political blogs until I leave work because I cannot read Twitter or any of my usual sites for the rest of the day.

Uh, ignore what I just posted. I tried to buy tickets and it's sold out. Well, shit. I'm going to work on this and get back to you all. Keep your eyes on this space for updates.

Update: There appears to be a 9:30 pm show at the Clearview Cinema at 62nd and 1st. Anyone know anything about that theater?

Folks, we have come around to that time of the year again, when we all* partake in the juggernaut that is THE MAY MOVIE.

Unless you've been ignoring my posts for over a year, you'll know that the 2012 MAY MOVIE is The Avengers. This movie is going to be huge. Huger than any other MAY MOVIE I think we've ever seen. Let me think...The Mummy Returns, Spider-Man, X-Men 2, Van Helsing, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Mission: Impossible III, Spider-Man 3, Iron Man, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Iron Man 2, Thor...gee, there sure are a lot of members of the Avengers in that list, but I think it's safe to say a movie with ALL OF THEM** is going to be bigger than any of the movies with any of them individually***.

The movie is going to be a bit later this year, probably starting after 8 pm, with more details to come. Right now, only the AMC Empire 25 at 42nd Street and the AMC at Kip's Bay have movie times available. I'll give it until Thursday at the latest and then call this. Just be aware that since this is most likely the HUGEST MAY MOVIE OF ALL TIME**** that we will probably have to get there, like, an hour early to wait on the line.

Keep your eyes on this space for updates! Excelsior!

* - some, very dedicated or very demented few
** - except for Wolverine and Spider-Man
*** - which is, of course, a guarantee that the film will be even better than all the others put together
**** - at least until Marvel finds a way to get the X-Men and Spider-Man franchises back into its power and puts Wolverine and Spidey in the sequel, Avengers 2: The Search For All of TrinityVixen's Money

Between trips to the bathroom, I managed to complete Mass Effect 3 this weekend. (I typed "4" there by accident at first. Alas, never to be.)
Absolutely no spoilers, just my opinion on the tenor of the ending, but just in case. )

I am more upset that the franchise is over. I suppose it isn't, really. If I want to try and get different endings, apparently I have to play multiplayer. Or one of two iOS games, which, yes, I've already bought and will put to use with my Renegade Shepard to see if it does diddly or squat. There's always something more you can do, given the way the game has been marketed--more you can buy to get at the cheap thrill version of the fun you had actually playing the game. I've never subscribed to that, which is why I'm annoyed that you can alter your results with things that feel completely extraneous to the game. Multiplayer? Come on now. Are you going to give out codes for reading the comics as well? Might as well, seeing as multiplayer is going to get fuck-all attention from me.

I don't like the necessity of having to pull on more and other media or different genres of video gaming within the same universe in order to achieve within the game you love. If you want more from the game, by all means, have at the comics and the extra missions, but, call me old-fashioned, I believe, for all the choosing of my own adventure within Mass Effect, there was a core story and very little extra was needed or improved it where it was added. It's nice that they are something else I can have if I get too depressed that the story is over. I'm a little depressed, not gonna lie, but it feels cheap to go for those tie-in stories as if they'll satisfy in the same way. I'd almost love to see a trilogy of games that takes place centuries after the ending of Mass Effect 3. Where will the universe be then? That, to me, is more interesting than all the stories of what various folk are doing while Shepard is saving the goddamned galaxy.

I think someone accidentally dosed Shepard with sex spores.

Absolutely no specific spoilers, but just in case. )

On the other hand, Bastard Male Shepard is TOTALLY going to pretend to love everybody and sleep with them.

In other news, my colleagues are squealing over Diane Von Furstenburg's (I should be worried that I spelled that completely right, shouldn't I?) new line for GAP. Meanwhile, I am watching this at work, totally spellbound:


I also read this entry on a blog and cracked the fuck up at the entries "John Carter of Dune" (oh God, I'm still laughing) and "The Punisher and Batman debate the death penalty." There are some better conceptual ones (Ferris Bueller's Day of the Living Dead" was pretty inspired) but those two were especially hilarious. I'd actually pay money to see Paul Dini make the Marvel vs Capcom one.

I don't think I have anything in common with these people.
trinityvixen: (win!)
At last! I come to the list of movies that were so bad they were AWESOME. Included in this list is one that was slightly less shitmazing (TM [livejournal.com profile] glvalentine) but that was no less a fun outing with awesome people who took the mickey out of it SO HARD to make up for it. That's what you get when you try to rewrite Greek history around a bunch of people who were force-fed that shit in their freshman year!


Brilliant movies don't have to be GOOD. )
trinityvixen: (blogging from work)
I feel like a cat chasing a laser toy, mentally, today. My head is all over the place. To whit, this list of things that have come up in my head today, either as a result of life, the internet, or just my brain really being that spacey.

-I hate when people say, "I don't want to spoil it for you, so I won't say anything more," and then they go ahead and keep telling you spoilers. This morning, I talked to the new guy at work about his trip to see The Book of Mormon, which I am anticipating seeing at some point, and he just would not stop. Mind you, I didn't even ask about this, he volunteered this information and I, politely, heard him out and suggested he see Avenue Q if The Book of Mormon is his kind of bag. How did I recommend this? By saying it's funny and has good music. End of story. No spoilers. Jesus, was that so hard?

-You know what was a good game? Bioshock. I really loved that game for the gameplay. Yeah, they smoothed things out in the sequel, but honestly, the swapping back and forth between plasmids and weapons became second nature after a while. And there was a photography mini-game! More games need to have photography elements to them. I kind of love that that mechanic is back in the less-than-original "reboot" sequel Dead Rising: Off the Record. But man, Bioshock was goddamned fun, challenging without being impossible, and fucking gorgeous. I should go replay the sequel, get some more achievements or something. I should also buy this shirt, y/y?

-I had a dream where I met Jennifer Hale (if you don't know who she is, shame on you) at a convention (it might have been PAX) and I was so excited to see her and have her sign my female-Shepard-variant cover for the collector's edition of Mass Effect 3. I told her that I've been a fan of hers since Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego? when she was the female detective's voice. I don't know why that detail was so specific in my mind, but yeah. I woke up knowing it was a dream because I'm absolutely too squeamish about meeting celebrities to ever want tot talk to them. This is a nice change of pace from dreaming I've been called out as a failure by my boss and wake up in a panic about how to prove otherwise.

-Assassin's Creed movie!?! On the one hand, Ubisoft, with probably 1/100th of the budget of even a mediocre Hollywood movie, made a pretty goddamned awesome prequel short film about the father of the player character in the second and third Assassin's Creed games. It's beautiful, the costumes ARE porn, and I think they must have gotten the voice actors from the game surgically altered to resemble the characters they play because WHOA. On the other hand, if that's what they can do with 30 minutes and a lot of love and those people were involved in the movie, like at all, SIGN ME UP.

Last night, I tore ass to get all the way down to Wall Street to see Sir Terry Pratchett ramble adorably on. Because I left too late (stupid lab meeting), I wasn't able to get one of the first 100 books that would let you actually go up and say hey to him while getting a bookplate for your copy of Snuff. But I am a simple person. He was funny and charming, as was his PA, and I got to finally see him in person for what could be the first and last time for me. That's enough. Besides which, I really need to read Unseen Academicals before I get to the next one or I won't read it. I'm terribly biased in favor of Night Watch/Sam Vimes books; I just know I'll throw over a wizards book for it and forget about it.

I also then took a two-mile walk to make it to the 2nd avenue cinema, which was the only one in the city playing Tucker & Dale Versus Evil, which was exactly what I expected. I really think seeing the trailer gives away most of the best parts of the movie, but, still. I did laugh really hard at some parts, and I can ask for no more than that.

No, wait, I can ask for something. Dear Boardwalk Empire ads: No one should be subjected to Michael Pitt's scowling, psychotic face without a warning at 10 pm. Please make a note of it for your future ad campaigns. (Don't mind me, I'm still freaked out by him after seeing Funny Games.)
trinityvixen: (horror)
Okay, no it isn't, but it DOES star Lassie from Psych, which makes it pretty damned awesome:

There's a discussion with the director about why he made it here. It reminds me a little of that rather gritty Mortal Kombat mini-movie that has actually been optioned to turn into a full-fledged series. And if you can make a gritty reboot of Mortal Kombat into a show, surely we can give this heart-breakingly awesome treatment of Voltron a shot, right? RIGHT?
trinityvixen: (fangirl)
AVENGERS TRAILER. TOO EXCITED TO MAKE GOOD ENGLISH.

Ahem. Okay, I'm not joking when I say I'm elated. I'm still riding that adrenaline high of excitement, despite the fact that there seems to be plenty of space for criticism of that trailer alone. Another time, perhaps. BECAUSE I JUST SAW AN AVENGERS TRAILER AND IT HAD THOR AND IRON MAN AND CAPTAIN AMERICA AND 'SPLOSIONS AND NINE INCH NAILS MUSIC AND I CANNOT BE RATIONAL RIGHT NOW.

So last night [livejournal.com profile] moonlightalice and I watched The Thing, which she was watching for the first time and I was rewatching in anticipation of that "we swear it's not a reboot" prequel coming out in a couple of weeks. She liked it, as only someone with good taste would, but she said something that really made me think. She said she only liked science-fiction or supernatural horror. Considering this angle, I found I could only agree.

Now, there are exceptions--I enjoyed (no, really!) the first two Saw movies, and however ridiculous they were or were not, they were not supernatural. (I put the first one as almost a noir, what with the focus being on two guys in a room with a dead body.) But even the largely reviled slashers are mostly supernatural, Nightmare on Elm Street undeniably so, but Halloween and Friday the 13th were (or became), supernatural, too. Torture porn stretches credulity on occasion, but most of that is non-supernatural, and, mostly, I do not like it. High Tension wasn't technically supernatural, though it pushed the line a bit, and I did like that. But those are two examples and I watch a lot of horror.

Anything with zombies is automatically science-fiction, if it's not outright supernatural, and that makes up a chunk of the horror I watch and enjoy right there. After that, what else is there? Ghosts? Vampires? Unkillable killers like Freddy, Jason, or Michael Myers? Is it because we classify anything that features the flesh-and-blood killer antagonist, no matter how gruesome or scary the movie might be, as "thriller" rather than horror? I wonder.

Speaking of horrors, though: Friendly's is going bankrupt. This isn't horrifying in and of itself, really, though I do have some sadness at the loss of something I used to enjoy going to. It was terrible for you and the food wasn't always great, but I remember, fondly, going to Friendly's as a treat growing up. My mother liked the salads there and she and sometimes Mrs. D would go with me to just chat. Really what saddens me is what has already happened as a result of the stores closing: the Friendly's just up the block closed. There was a man there that I remember working there for all of my life as far as I was aware--so, easily, 15+ years. It was always a little sad to see a grown man working at a food joint (for reasons that are prejudicial based on class, I do realize), but it's even sadder to think he doesn't have a job now.

In all seriousness, yesterday, one of our post-docs, S, said I was a hipster. He said that I had told him as much. Buh-whaaaaat? Obviously, there is no way I would ever, ever say that, even as a joke. Today, in talking about it again, two other people gave him the O.o face as well, including A, whose response was pretty goddamned vehement. S maintains that he used to hang out with hipsters in Cincinnati, so he knows from hipsters. I came up with many defenses against my supposed inclusion into hipster-dom, but probably the best was this exchange.

S: "So what are hipsters like, if not like you?"
Me: "Let me put it in terms of movies: hipsters like movies in languages nobody speaks. I liked Thor."

This caused another post-doc to splutter loudly at his desk and set off a round of discussion about why or why not Thor was a good movie. At least I'm not defending myself against being a hipster any more!!!

Also, this reminded me that I needed to pre-order Captain America. Which I have. Come to me, sweet, sweet Blu Ray!!

The internet used a fan syllogism to freak me the fuck out last week. That syllogism:
1) Clark Gregg's Agent Phil Coulson is a much beloved character that ties together the disparate Marvel fim franchises.
2) Joss Whedon, who is directing Clark Gregg (among others) in The Avengers, is known for brutally killing off beloved characters in franchises.
3) Ergo, Joss Whedon will kill off Clark Gregg's character.

Now, it is possible that some of you don't feel the Agent Coulson love. You're wrong, but I acknowledge your existence. (Unlike, say, my willingness to acknowledge those of you females in denial about Thor's hotness. You are all faries, unicorns, trolls, whatever, far as I'm concerned.) Clark Gregg is nothing short of adorable and is a breath of fresh air and pragmatism grounding the otherwise fantastical movies in which he has appeared. (Which is saying something given how literally sky-high Thor and Iron Man can get.) He's smarmy and fun and smart, and, besides that, he serves a useful and practical role without usurping movies away from their respective stars. Joss Whedon is smart enough to love that about his character, which doesn't necessarily mean he wouldn't then immediately kill that character off, which is why I was freaking out.

Luckily, however, Clark Gregg is easily as (if not more) charming as his fictional counterpart and has reassured us all that he's going to be around at least until The Avengers 2: The Search for More Money. In this interview, he manages to a) sound like a fanboy of the actors with whom he works, b) present himself as SRS AUTEUR, c) pretend to spoil you for events that probably won't happen in The Avengers (OR WILL THEY?), and d) completely make me love him even harder than I did before. That's it, Clark Gregg, I'm buying all your movies. I didn't even like Choke that well, but you have sold me. (Plus there's a chance he'll get residuals on that. Not so likely for the Marvel movies, I'm guessing.)

Without a doubt, our 2012 May Movie is going to be The Avengers. (Warning: following that link to the IMDB, of all places, may potentially spoil you for...something. The internet is still debating what it might mean. If you care, you can read this post to find out what the spoiler even is, since I assume most of you wouldn't know you were spoiled even if you saw it. If you prefer to stay unspoiled, by all means, go to the IMDB and ignore that last link. Also, this is where you shout "NEEEEEEEEERDS" at people on the internet. Just saying.) In preparation for that most momentous event, about which I am already unduly excited and they haven't even finished primary filming for the movie, I have had an idea. I want to do a possibly monthly movie watching series leading up to The Avengers with screenings of each Avenger's title film. (Or, in the case of Iron Man, films.) I'm posting this to gauge interest. The best way to do that? POLL! It is an extremely short poll, not to worry.

Would you be interested in screening Marvel movies in anticipation of The Avengers?
1) With you? HELL TO THE YES.
2) It may be uncomfortable sitting next to you during Thor, but otherwise yes!
3) I may be in for one or two of the movies.
4) I don't think this is my cup of tea.

The order in which we watch the movies will follow, roughly, the in-universe timeline of the movies. That means we'd watch Captain America first, then Iron Man, then The Incredible Hulk, then Iron Man 2, and then Thor. There are some who could make the case that Thor happens concurrently with Iron Man 2 (Agent Coulson leaves that movie midway through to show up in a clip after the credits that itself takes places midway through Thor). There is also no absolutely certain way to place to The Incredible Hulk except that it has to take place after Iron Man but before The Avengers as its only connection to movie-universe continuity is Tony Stark's cameo in the credits, where he is pitching General Ross on the Avengers initiative, which would suggest it took place after Iron Man 2, when Tony is more on board with that, but he's known about it since the post-credits scene in Iron Man. Regardless, I am making the executive decision here to use the movie release schedule to call this thing, and since The Incredible Hulk came out between the Iron Man movies, we'll say that the post-credit scene is a post-Iron Man, pre-Iron Man 2 event, thus putting The Incredible Hulk between them in the roster. Plus, it means we don't spend four hours in a row with Tony Stark. (You want to pace yourself where exposure to exteme assholishness is concerned.) What say you, friends? Are you with me?

It's the 20th anniversary of The Rocketeer movie? And some French animation studio made a short to celebrate it that is ding-dong-adorable, you say? D'awwww.

I remember really liking The Rocketeer as a kid. It's one of those movies that, though I don't love it so much now, I can pinpoint it as being part of a general geek awakening. I grew up watching Star Wars and it was so ubiquitous in our house that I just didn't realize that liking Star Wars made you a geek. But movies like The Rocketeer that arrive with almost no fanfare (that I was aware of) and don't seem especially mainstream (whatever its production pedigree) that entirely transported me as a kid? Those are the ones I can look back on and say, "Yep, I was always going to be a geek." Because I really liked The Rocketeer and thought it was just about the awesomest thing ever. Of course, I thought the Billy Zane Phantom movie was about the neatest thing ever, too, proving that a burgeoning geek can survive on bad comic book movies for just as long as it takes Hollywood to make better ones. (Adult me wishes she still liked the bad ones more. Then things like Catwoman would hurt me less.)

One thing I noticed, though, is how similar the helmet from The Rocketeer is to the one on the Iron Monger suit from Iron Man. I immediately began to wonder if the rocket pack was some half-forgotten Stark Industries product. And then I was thinking crossover. And then I wondered about the rights issues. And then I remembered that Disney and Marvel, like, merged, and this is a thing that could have happened. Wow.

The movie-watching plans I made last week have, save for a trip to see Priest tonight, mostly fallen apart. I went to visit U Penn's vet school--lovely campus!--and used that as an excuse to drop in on [livejournal.com profile] feiran and [livejournal.com profile] ecmyers for the weekend. Alas, it was not the best weekend for poor [livejournal.com profile] feiran but I had a good time. I ate some truly excellent Korean BBQ for the first time, and that's a pleasure I hope to have repeated often. So tasty! Alas, the incredibly poor performance of Dylan Dog, coupled with no new releases of note being released that weekend meant we missed out going to the movies.

We did, however, finish Smallville. I have surprisingly little to say about it. But not SO little it shouldn't still go behind a cut. (No spoilers!) )

I also caught up on Supernatural on my way down to and back from Philly. The direction this season has gone is interesting. I didn't really think there was any point to continuing a show past the literal apocalypse, but they found a credible enough way to examine the aftermath. It's actually really funny because minor spoilers for end of season five ). I'm not sure I buy that this was evident from the beginning--the twist that was just revealed before the finale seems a little more sudden than reveals in seasons past--but I actually don't mind the direction it has gone.

One thing that intrigued me: nerd rage over the season finale teaser. No spoilers, just some venting. )

Tonight, Priest! I'm so excited you guys. I have only been this enthused so far this summer about Thor, though I haven't got half the expectations for Priest as I did Thor (and, if you recall, my expectations for Thor were decidedly sublevel). I just want to glory in the badness and then go read, finally, [livejournal.com profile] glvalentine 's review that will make all the badness even funnier. I may also be in it for Vampire Cowboy Karl Urban. Not gonna lie, that's a draw for me.
trinityvixen: (insane)
I shit thee not, friends, I'm looking forward to the next few weeks. Yeah, I have to spend (according to my own rules) at least an hour a day (three on weekend days) on studying for my upcoming GRE (four weeks away! aaaaaaH!!!!), but I'm going to see SO MANY movies in the upcoming weeks. I'm driven to the point of distraction over it, even.

I really enjoy seeing movies. This week, I gave myself a break after the hectic one-two-three that was final exam, MAY MOVIE, bridal shower (and Mother's Day, but that was fun, not a chore). I have watched a new movie almost every night. Not all brilliant (back in your corner, Midnight Meat Train), but I haven't lazed about quite this way in a while. And I'm going out to the theater this weekend (hopefully!) and twice next week and once next weekend! After Thor was disappointingly AWESOME, I need the cheesy, hammy badness of something like Priest. I need it bad. Oh, Vampire Cowboy Karl Urban, how can I quit you?

Morning aggravations aside, I'm looking forward to the long weekend, hanging out with [livejournal.com profile] feiran  and [livejournal.com profile] ecmyers (AND FINISHING SMALLVILLE OMG YOU GUYS) and just generally enjoying my last weekend to NOT GIVE A SHIT for two months. Then I come back, study my ass off and do nothing but apply to schools until those aforementioned friends get married. AND THEN I AM FREE. I am going to enjoy THE SHIT out of this summer, you guys. Because come fall, I have to deal with the heartbreak of where I won't be getting into schools outright, the hassle of interviewing at places that won't take me, and, if I'm very, very lucky, the agony of deciding whether to attend the one school (probably in fucking Oklahoma) that will take me.

SUMMER AND MOVIES WILL SET ME FREE. That's what I'm taking out of this. Also, if I hit all four movies I intend to in the next week and a half, I'll be ahead on my 52-movies-in-a-theater-a-year resolution for the first time since, like, January, where it doesn't really count because it was much easier to get ahead when there was only one movie as yet required for a movie-a-week resolution. It might even carry me over past August, traditionally the Death Valley of cinema. (January/February are pretty bad, but that only means they get the so-bad-they're-hilarious shit that no one wants to bother releasing in August.)

If you're wondering if I've snapped, the answer is yes. It's a gorgeous day, I have a long weekend ahead of me, and the promise of fun hangings out with friends and MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES is enough to make me batshit. Sue me!
trinityvixen: (cock)
I don't think I've studied enough--I know I haven't--but nothing more has been going in. I am so, so nervous, even though I think I know enough to do well. Gah, I want this test over with. I think I'm more nervous for it being an hour before the test than I will be, studied-well-enough or not, at the actual test.

Part of the nerves may be about having to ask the teacher afterwards for a recommendation. Part of the nerves is probably from my admittedly insane plan to do a lot of my running around after the test on my bike. Here's hoping I make it out alive.
