Birthdays, bowling and superheroes.

On Friday night, my friends and I had a sleepover at Sarah's house for her birthday, where we ate fajitas and watched Thor in preparation of the next day's viewing of The Avengers. I hadn't seen Thor before, and pretty much spent the entirety of the evening and next morning arguing Loki's case and generally doing that annoying thing where silly fangirls defend the bad guy's motives, a case made easier, I found, given how much of a cock Thor himself was for the majority of the movie. But I digress.

On Saturday, we drove to Bristol where we had bowling booked in a cute place called 'The Lanes'. It's right in town, but I'd never been there before. It was strange being in such an intimate bowling environment - I'm used to the huge American complexes. Predictably, Moose won (his first bowl was a strike, of course). I came third, which adds insult to injury since I'd sacrificed a thumb nail to the cause.



We grabbed lunch at Za Za Bazaar, a huge all you can eat buffet in Bristol that caters to just about every cuisine you can think of. Ever the owner of a very cultured pallet, my first plate contained fish and mushy peas.

And then we saw The Avengers.

Ever get that tingly feeling when you're on the verge of a shiny new fandom?

Just me?

What a fantastic movie. Loved every moment of it! The action, the banter, the bromance, the comedic timing. Tony Stark remains perfect, Captain America managed to deliver the cheesiest, eye-rollingest line in the movie, but was the only character absolutely allowed to get away with it. The Hulk stole the film with exactly two scenes, both of which were just timed absolutely perfectly. And, y'know, generous slatherings of Loki, the only bad guy I'm allowing myself to do that aforementioned 'but he's JUST MISUNDERSTOOD ;_;' flailing for. And now all I want to draw is slice of life bromance between these guys because of reasons.
