I know that I have done a post about Marvel and Marvel properties already but considering that I finished Jessica Jones yesterday and the new trailer for Captain America: Civil War also came out yesterday I thought I would comment about them and also talk about something else that I got yesterday but I think that I would leave that to the end of the post. Ca
Warning: there might be spoilers if you have watched Jessica Jones yet
I enjoyed Jessica Jones a lot and though it took me a shorter amount of time to watch than it that it took me watch Daredevil I still think that Daredevil is the better show. I might re-evaluate that though as I might watch both series again back to back. I am not sure when that will though as I might watch it with my bf if I can convince him to watch Daredevil. He refuses to watch it because of Ben Affleck and the bad Daredevil movie that he made. My bf really doesn’t like Ben Affleck which is going to be an issue when the Batman V Superman comes out next year. He also finds the premise preposterous.
Now back to Jessica. First of great representation from Australian talent though admittedly they all had to put on American accents which they pulled off wonderfully. If you wondering who I am talking about they would Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse and Wil Traval as Will Simpson. I was particularly impressed with Eka Darville and his performance as Malcolm and I was pleased that he was not killed and enjoyed his rather odd relationship in the end with Robyn. Of course Krysten Ritter, David Tennant and Mike Colter were also all wonderful as Jessica, Killgrave and Luke Cage. Actually I don’t think that I can fault any member of the cast. I loved seeing Claire Temple from Daredevil in the last episode as well.
The show showed off New York better than Daredevil did but then Daredevil was more set in the night while Jessica Jones had a lot more in the day time. It made me miss New York a lot. I really need to get back to New York sometime. I just need to get some money and knock out my bf to do it though.
Now moving on to the other Marvel property in the Captain America: Civil War trailer. I will say straight away that I have only seen it once and on an iPhone and I do intend to watch it again on a bigger screen. I will also attach it to this post for anyone viewing pleasure. I did like it and it was good to see that it is a Captain America story and not an Avengers story as I think a lot of fans out their worried about that fact due to how much of the cast have connections to the Avengers. It was also good to see that Bucky will play a major part in this story as I like Bucky but that may have to do with me having a soft spot for Sebastian Stan and the fact that he was the Mad Hatter in Once Upon A Time.
Alrighty the last thing that happened yesterday for me was that I bought the new Adele album yesterday through iTunes. I listened to it today and though it might not have been as good as 21 it was still great. I have been saying for years now that she has the best singing voice in the world. Well in my opinion anyway. Actually I think the two best female singers in the world right now come from the UK the other being Florence Welsh of Florence and the Machine.

Alright so despite the medication my anxiety is quite high today and am having problems with concentration despite my work load. Also having trouble with decision making though admittedly it a rather frivolous thing that I have to decide on which is whether to buy Ant-Man through iTunes now or wait a week and buy a physical copy. The physical copy that I buy will have a digital copy as well so either way I will have it digitally it is just whether I can wait a week or more likely two weeks cause I can’t guarantee that I will have the money next week to get it.
You would think that with my bringing up Ant-Man that today’s post will be something Pop-Culture related and maybe even in relation to Marvel and maybe even Jessica Jones which I am watching by the way and only have two episodes left but actually I am going to talk real life matters today and about who I usually talk about when I talk RL…My sister.
She still has not filled her prescription and is apparently going cold turkey in her quest to give up smoking and that is not going to be fun. She was kicked out again on Friday night due to the fact that she had made small holes in the walls of her room due to her not having cigarettes but that did not last long as she returned Saturday night. She is allowed to stay under the proviso that she not further damage the house and swear. I think there are others but I can’t remember what they are at the moment.
She has also been talking about the fact that no one shows her any respect and we should all respect her. The only problem is that shows no respect to any one and it is very hard to respect someone that does not reciprocate. I mean how can you respect someone swears and carries on. How can you respect someone when they scream at you and are calling your mother a bitch and a slut especially in the middle of the street where a neighbour could hear you. How can you respect someone who is so selfish and demanding that you have to drop whatever you are doing so that you have to drive them up the road to get smokes or go to the library.
She treats everything in the house as it is hers, actually she treats the house is general as if she owns it and has actually told my mother to leave her house. If she buys something like food for the house it is hers and hers alone and will get angry with you for using but is ok for her to open and use anything and everything. It is like everything that is hers is hers and everything that is yours is hers as well.

It is has been a hectic couple of weeks that has been the main reason why I have not posted a lot.
First of my family is back from Hong Kong and my week without them was interesting to say the least. I did not do as planned and watch Supernatural or Flash live due to tiredness and the fact that I totally forgot that we had dinner plans arranged for the night that the Flash aired. I did however watch Arrow live so ‘Yah’.
My anxiety also flared up mightily on the Wednesday so much so that I felt like I was going to have a panic attack while walking my dogs on the Thursday and forced me to have a day off on Friday so that I can go and see my doctor and once again be prescribed medication for it. It is has helped a lot though since being back on it.
My sister behaved herself while they were away and went on a baking spree. She had also decided to give up smoking and went and saw a doctor about it and got medication for it but has yet to fill the prescription for it and so is still begging for money and smokes. She also has to look for jobs and decided that she wants to be a chef. With no tech looking for work is not going to be easy for her which means that is asking to use everyone else’s and that is annoying.
This week has been a busy week in general in relation to work. I have had very little time to think or take a breather. This morning is the only real time that I have been able to breathe a little but once it hits 10 that will end I will be nose to the grindstone once more.
My mother walks the dogs every morning except Tuesdays because she starts work early on that day and I have agreed to walk the dogs on that day for her and then accompany her every second Saturday and Sunday when we don’t have the girls. When we do have them I have to keep an eye on the youngest who is an early riser. Every other day I will go to the gym because I have a membership and have not been able to use it due to timing and the season.
This weekend is supposed to be a scorcher and I am not looking forward to it. I do have an appointment with my psychologist tomorrow in which my BF will also be attending but other than that I have nothing planned, not that I like making plans. I want to go swimming but can’t due to issues. I also would love to binge watch Jessica Jones this weekend but doubt that that is going to happen.
I am really hoping that things settle down a little in the lead up to Christmas.

In my last post I went I went through my weekend plans and what do you know none of what was planned actually happened. Admittedly it was not me that kyboshed the weekend plans it was the boyfriend. This is why I don’t like making plans as it is very rare that they are followed through. I guess I am a go with flow kind of badger.
Actually one of plans actually did come to fruition this weekend and that was watching Age of Ultron with my niece. I saw it the first time in Gold Class opening weekend with my boyfriend and neither of us could say that we liked the movie all that much. We both found a little bit muddled and I personally didn’t like the way they handled the Black Widow character.
I didn’t enjoyed it any better on a second viewing and as a first time watcher my niece didn’t like it either. She found it very confusing and didn’t think any of it made much sense which to be honest, it doesn’t. She did however like the character of Quicksilver and found Aaron Taylor-Johnson attractive.
I have made mention that I am more of a DC girl than a Marvel one but I have seen all the Marvel movies and this is the first one I have not really enjoyed, which is a shame because I did enjoy the first one quite a bit. Actually I am going to introduce something that I like to do and that is listing. This list is based primarily on the Marvel movies alone and does not include other movies that are based on Marvel property such as X-Men and Spiderman though admittedly Spiderman has re-entered the fold he will probably never been included in this because I refuse to watch Spiderman movies because I do not like the character. It will also not include Marvel TV properties but I think that is obvious. I will say though that Agents of Shield is kind of disappointing, Agent Carter took me a while to get into but was good and Daredevil was great and I am looking forward to Jessica Jones.
