Equal Opportunity Badger

 

Don’t knock it if you haven’t tried it. I have been told this many a time and have had it used as a weapon, of sorts, against me. Last year I was told that if I didn’t watch the movie Avatar my bf would not go and see Batman Vs Superman with me. He is sort of threatening it again but this time with Fate of the Furious and Wonder Woman but I think I can get around this one since I have not seen any of the Fast and Furious movies and since none of them are available to binge on Netflix or Stan here in Australia I can’t watch them. Well I guess I could buy the movies (yeah right) or borrow and I am pretty sure that the second maybe an option if his brother or bff owns them.

Well any who Fast and Furious is not what this post is about it is actually going to be about Spider-Man and another possible blackmail attempt by my bf though I am not sure what he is going to resist seeing with me, most likely Justice League at the end of the year due to his loathing of Ben Affleck. So I am going to into try to find a connection and possible liking for Spider-Man, like I did for Superman previously and am going to embark on watching/binging on the animated Spectacular Spider-Man over the weekend/week. Spider-Man, along with the Hulk, are his favourite superheroes and I have a sneaky suspicion that I will be forced to go and see Spider-Man: Homecoming when it comes to the theatres in the next couple of months.

Alas it is hard being a DC girl when you are surrounded by Marvel men.

*************

Well I watched the first season and had a discussion in relation to Spider-Man with my bf over the weekend while trying to convince him to go and see Lego: Batman which he refused to do saying that it was a wait til DVD movie, seriously thinking that I might torrent it, illegal as it is though I will buy it when it gets released. Our discussion in relation to Spidey was why he considered him his favourite. I can understand why too. As a young boy seeing someone that is also young doing amazing things and being a smart mouth to adults while doing these amazing things would be relatable.

Well any who back to the show. Still can’t see the appeal really but then I am not sure this is the best example that I can get of the character in this medium. The theme song was good and I like the way they indicated when he was using the Spidey-Sense but all round I couldn’t really connect with the characters or the stories being told. All the characters except maybe Gwen Stacey came across as rather self-serving and shallow. The animation was not the best rather blockish and lifeless for my taste though Marvel has not done animation well, with the exception of anything related to X-Men. That may change as they are now owned by Disney and this iteration was done before Disney bought them.

I do have the second season and will watch it as Venom was introduced in the last episode and I do like Venom, weird I know. I also have Spider-Man: The New Animated Series with Neil Patrick Harris voicing Peter Parker/Spider-Man and might give the Ultimate Spider-Man a go. I might also try live action with the Toby McGuire/Andrew Garfield movies though will probably think on this a little more as recommendation wise they are not really held in good esteem.

I will keep you posted though.

Bibs And Bobs Of The Badger

I watched Avatar this past weekend so I guess a hooray is in order that I got that out of the way. All I am going to say about the movie is meh. It was pretty to look at but I don’t think that it is a great of a movie that people make it out to be. Technically I didn’t have to watch it as my niece wants to see the Batman Vs Superman and she could have gone in place of my BF but we weren’t doing anything on Sunday and I was just pleased that I didn’t fall asleep. 

My headaches have gotten worse to the point where I have had to leave work early on Friday and have made an appointment to see a doctor. The headaches, anxiety and drowsiness are not a good combination especially while I am at work. I am hoping that the doctor will find a better medication to put me to combat this as I think the medication is not helping with any of three symptoms as it is. I also think that maybe they will need to check my B12 levels when it comes to the drowsiness.

 

My sister has dropped to a new low. First off that trip to Hervey Bay has her needing to appear in court as she was caught there driving without a licence. She claims that she got a message relieving her off this but we all think that this is not true and she will most likely get arrested. We believe that this is not true mainly because she has been hallucinating a bit lately. Early Saturday night she woke most of us up because she woke up feeling as someone was holding a gun to her head. She also believed that her children were there and our cousin who lived in Melbourne was there. We did not have the girls that weekend but she kept asking how they and our cousin were.

 

Later on she asked her father to take her to the hospital because of her ‘depression’. She was put on a drip and sent home. The following day she asked her father to take her to a local hotel in which she stayed the night there. Apparently she did not like the room service so she deliberately checked out late. They charged her extra for the late checkout and she got pissed off. My mother picked her up and she demanded to be taken to her bank to get the money back but my mother refused and told her that is not how it works. This of course pissed off my sister. She is also refusing to pay the money she owes for the computers I ‘rented’ for her because she says that I owe her $1000 because of the cashback. The cashback was never that much and beside that money is all gone anyway due to bills that I had to pay due because I am now left short due to that. I also think she has forgotten how the world works in general. 

 

On a different note all together I am having a bit an identity crisis due to Pottermore. I decided to redo the sorting quiz and this time around I came up Ravenclaw I was not happy with this answer so I took it again. I again came up Ravenclaw. I have nothing against Ravenclaw but never once thought of myself as one leaning always to Hufflepuff and Gryffindor.

 

BADGER FOR LIFE!!!

The Badger Update

Avatar Update:

Still have not watched the movie though I have watched Deadpool and The Martian and I enjoyed both. Only have a couple of weekends left before my deadline of watching the movie before Dawn of Justice comes out. Still do not want to watch the movie but really want to watch DoJ.

Sister Update:

She still has a job so that is great and her moods have been better except for Sundays…

On Sundays she is mopey and does her usual thing of giving everyone dirty looks, crying and mumbling to herself and asking for money for cigarettes because she has run out. She is also asking for money to get to work because she has had a fight with the person that was going to take her the day/night before and now is unable to get to work. She is also asking for a spare GoCard, which is a public transport card here in SE Queensland that allows you to catch any form of public transport and can be continually topped up to pay your fare. All you to do is tag on and off and every tenth fare is free. We used to have a spare one which I think we lent or gave to her at one point and I take it she has lost or gave to someone else (I think we lent it to her when she was with her ex and she gave it to him). Even if we did still have it there would be no money on it anyway so it would be of no help.

Anxiety/Depression Update:

Still feeling anxious most days and at times a little blue. My insides are jittery most of the time and I can feel my heart racing. I am using a different form of the medication and I am not sure if it is working. I have noticed that I tire easily though I am not sleeping badly. The tiredness usually comes over me mid-morning and I find it hard to keep my eyes opens as they are really heavy. This is not good for when I am at work as my supervisor noticed on Friday and told me to take an early lunch so that I could get some fresh air. I am not sure if it is medication or the weather, as it has been really hot, or a combination of both. My headaches are also getting more noticeable. Have not had another panic attack and that should count for something.

BF Update:

Now I know that I really don’t talk about him or our relationship all that often but I thought I would say something as there have been a few developments.

We might be going to Japan at the end of the year which for me is really exciting as it somewhere, and the only place in Asia that we both really want to go to, and also because my BF is afraid to fly. I am really confidant about this mainly because he is actually talking about it with family and friends and if he wasn’t keen he wouldn’t mention it at all to other people. I hope it is not a case of talking and no action on his behalf.

The other thing is we might get a place together which I know a lot of people would say is about time as we have been together for about 5 years now. The reason why we haven’t is admittedly mainly because of me and the fact that I am comfortable where I am but considering recent events I need to get out for my own health. Also I do not want to rent and my BF did. I have also relented as I also didn’t want to leave the area that I am in but we will never be able to afford it. I think we are going to look at getting a no-deposit house and land package or something that is the Logan area of SE Queensland that is close to public transport.

Everything and the Badger

I am not sure what I am going to write about today but I think it is going to be a mixture of RL and Pop Culture.

 

Well let’s see where my thoughts are going to take me today.

 

Personally I have a new haircut. It is a pixie cut. I have had long hair for a while but have always preferred myself with a shorter cut. We couple of weeks ago we had a really hot weather and I couldn’t stand it anymore and got it all cut off. Plus is was something that I have wanting to do for ages. I also got a new phone because my plan was almost up and my provider offered me a new one. It is an iPhone 6S in rose gold. My old iPhone 5C is going to my mother who has an iPhone 4 I think.

 

My sister got a job and this turns out to be exactly what she needed to do. Her father didn’t want her to take the job as to in his opinion she is “sick”. I don’t doubt that she is sick but if someone is sick they should get help and she was refusing to do that and he wasn’t making her or advising her to get the help she needed to get. She wasn’t getting better and he was very rarely around to see her bad behaviour.

 

She is however still insane. The job she got is on the Gold Coast which is about an hour’s drive from where we live. To get there she will need to take a train. To make it easier for her she wants to move out and be closer to a train or on the Gold Coast. She asked me to move in with her and being closer to a train line wouldn’t worry me all that much but she was more set on living near a train line on or closer to the Gold Coast. That would only benefit her as it would cost more for me to get to work. There are several people in my office that live on the coast but work in Brisbane and it cost them around double what I am paying at the moment in public transport to get to work and back. There was no way that I would be able to afford that and barely making ends meet at the moment. Luckily one of her “friends” has been driving her to work and back and it seems that he is the one that will move to the coast with her.

 

Well it looks like I am going to be watching Avatar this weekend. I watched the last trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice this morning and the final nail went into the coffin that was my refusal to watch it. I’ve just got to hope that my boyfriend keeps up his end of the bargain. Also looking forward to seeing Deadpool as well and my BF is also. He, I think, is more eager than I am. I don’t think it will be this weekend though. We are babysitting on Sunday night and he hasn’t said anything about going tomorrow. Maybe next weekend.

The Badger’s Dilemma

Anxiety is high today but that was brought on by a little stress freak out due to the stupidity that I mentioned in my last post and also maybe because of too much caffeine. The freak out was due to the fact that a payment is due tomorrow and I was worried that the money wouldn’t be available when they try to take it out. Luckily this first payment is a manual payment and not an automatic one.

 

I have a dilemma of sorts and it is not something serious or anything.

 

As I have mentioned in the past I am a bit of a DC fangirl and I have a particular love for Batman and am looking forward to the movie in March. The only issue that I have is that my bf will not see the movie due to his dislike of Ben Affleck. He has however given me an ultimatum. He will see the movie if I watch Avatar, which I refuse to see due to my refusal to watch anything directed by James Cameron, with the exception of Terminator 2: Judgement Day, which I have seen and saw before I made that decision. Yes, it means also that I have not seen Titanic.

 

I know it is stupid and all that I refuse to watch his movies and to be honest I am not even sure why I refuse. Everyone keeps telling me that I will like the movie but I am being stubborn, can’t I be stubborn once in a while, in relation to this. I think it is in part due to my love of Avatar: The Last Airbender and its movie, which I have seen and it is terrible. However when the movie came out it was called The Last Airbender and not Avatar: The Last Airbender and I heard that the reason for that was James Cameron and his movie which was coming out around the same time and he didn’t want any confusion between the two.

 

So should I give in an watch the movie or should I stick to my guns? Admittedly I have seen bits and pieces of it just not all of it. I have also heard mixed things about it. Some say that it is a great movie and as I mentioned above family and friends keep telling me that I will like it. However I heard bad things about it as well and I heard that the movie doesn’t deserve the praise and hype that it gets. 

 

What to do, what to do?
