Self Watches “Thor: The Dark World”

The typhoon that hit the Philippines was a body blow.  Honestly, there are times when self thinks she should board the next plane.

Oh, what to do, what to do, other than stuff her face with pistachios (Self definitely is a nervous eater) and feel her jeans get tighter and tighter?

Today, self decided to watch “Thor: The Dark World.”  Even though Eric Snider only gave it a “C-” and belittled everything, even the adorable Kat Dennings (Kat is way more amusing to watch than almost any other young actress today.  That includes Natalie Portman, her co-star).

Chris Hemsworth is very easy on the eyes (She remembered reading some interview with Tom Hiddleston, who said he’d initially auditioned for the part of Thor, but didn’t envy the enormous amounts Chris had to eat just to keep up that physique!).  She actually likes him in the role.

Anthony Hopkins is a very erudite Odin.

Renee Russo plays Thor’s mom.  She is still beautiful.

But, niceties out of the way, let’s get to the nitty-gritty:  Tom Hiddleston as Loki is soooo fabulous!

Sorry, sorry, she knows this is stupid and superficial.  But he has such — gravitas.  Even when he is smirking, his eyes smoulder.

Okay, self, that’s enough!  Was it not true that you gave in to the totally gratuitous urge to munch on oatmeal raisin cookies (which your waistline certainly did not need)?  You steeled yourself to eat only one (They come in sets of three), but to keep yourself awake during the scenes where red stuff is coming out of Natalie Portman, you began munching away.  It got to the point where you honestly thought you couldn’t breathe:  not only were your pants very very tight at that point, but you were sitting in the wrong position. But you couldn’t tear your eyes away whenever Loki was on-screen, and he is on-screen almost as much as Thor (thank God)

As a result of all that, after getting home, self decided she would forgo dinner.  But The Man came home in a bad mood, and self started doing ridiculous things in the kitchen.  Like balancing a plate on the top of her head and saying “Yoo-hoo, hubby, look at me!”  Honestly, she doesn’t know what she’ll do in Miami next week.  That’s where she and The Man have decided to go, to use the two free airline tickets his company gave The Man, almost a year ago.  But The Man has things he wants to do, and self has to continue teaching on-line.  She just hopes the hotel room isn’t stocked with potato chips and candy bars.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
