Tell me a random fact about yourself

Okay, I’ll go first: I’m awkward when it comes to accepting compliments. 

Just recently, a woman gave me my ‘Tom Cruise moment’ (that’s what my colleague and I called it). Without going into so many details, the woman said that she had always wanted to meet me (my colleague thought she was stalkerish? LoL!) to tell me the good things that she said, and I stood there like a stunned dummy before finally mustering up the courage to thank her. 

I turn it over to you. Tell me a random fact about yourself.

It’s National Doughnut Day!

Close up dessert donuts doughnuts #54094

Today is National Doughnut Day… in America. However, I am more interested in the history behind this day.

“Salvation Army Doughnut” was first served by the ladies of the Salvation Army in 1917 during WWI when the Salvation Army Lassies were allowed to go to the front lines of France to provide home cooked food for the troops. In 1938, The Salvation Army created National Doughnut Day in honor to the women that served doughnuts to the soldiers during WWI. It started as a fund-raiser then, the goal to help the needy during the Great Depression.

The doughnuts were often cooked in oil inside the metal helmets of the American soldiers.

Today, National Doughnut Day is celebrated on the first Friday in June. Today, I’ll be remembering those wonderful ladies who went out to the French front to serve soldiers their favorite comfort food.

I’m going down with this ship!

WARNING: prepare for an onslaught of photos and GIFs. 🙂

A week ago, I touched on what the term shipping means for crazy fandoms. This post was supposed to get done since last week, but time ran away from me.

Whenever I see two people with insane SIZZLING chemistry crackling between them, I’m like, get married already and have some babies! Then I ship it.

Although I am not a crazy shipper, I do ship a few things.

I tuned into Riverdale for Cole Sprouse, but ended up staying for Bughead:

I don’t ship them that hard, but they’re the cutest thing in the show although I don’t think they’re going to last.

I appreciate Wonder Woman with Superman!

They’re kindred spirits and when they kiss, it’s more than what she’ll ever have with Batman and him with Lois because you can feel the passion around the crackling electricity.

WW is not your typical ‘damsel in distress’ as Lois Lane. Like her, Kal-El has the soul of a warrior. Some fans prefer to see them with humans, but Supes is a god and he deserves a goddess and there isn’t another goddess on Planet Comic that is better suited for him.

I honestly don’t care for 101 reasons why Supes and Diana shouldn’t be in a relationship. I don’t care how bland they appear because of their hotness (deal with it!), this is my ship and I like them together.

Superman/Wonder Woman- In love the paradox occurs that two beings become one and yet remain two. - Erich Fromm:

The universe was at peace. Superman had found his soulmate. (This bit is taken from my SM WW fan fiction story 🙂

And then there is Ilsa Faust and Ethan Hunt…

Image result for i will go down with this ship gif

Faust and Hunt are both spies. They’re outrageously talented in their respective fields, cool and confident under pressure, capable of seemingly superhuman feats of espionage excellence.

Ethan Hunt and Ilsa Faust is my other favorite ship and I hope they end up together [somehow] in MI6.

They should get married and have some babies.

And if this [‘The Mummy’] is good, I’ll ship it, because… chemistry!

So the question is: who do you ship?

Reaction to Tom Cruise and Vanessa Kirby shoots love scene in Paris

 :

“Take a number, baby.”

I’ve been watching some reaction videos over on YouTube and I’ve been wanting to do my reactions to one for the longest while… in writing form! Tom Cruise is currently filming MI6 in Paris and whenever I’m on Twitter, I get a video to watch his latest behind the scenes moments. Vanessa Kirby recently joined him to shoot an erm, romantic scene, and I’ve decided to react to this video. 

So, let’s do this!

 :

This is the first time that I am actually going to write out my reactions to a video! I’m excited, but I’ll try to keep it short. 😛

THE VIDEO & REACTIONS

Few opening seconds: Ah, the City of Romance! I can only wish to visit one day!

0:09 – Oh, there’s Tom! And Vanessa Kirby. They look so mismatched! Like a mismatched prom couple. No Prom King and Queen here!

0:26 – Vanny is just standing there and I am already bored of watching them. 

0:37 – The way this woman is just staring into TC’s face without any emotion. I am not feeling it. Come on girl, show some kind of passion!

0:44-0:50 – *chants* Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! KISS ALREADY!

0:54 – I take it back, don’t kiss, don’t kiss, don’t… she just goes for it! Vanny just throws her arms over TC’s neck like a glomping squid and kisses him like she hasn’t eaten for days. What? That’s not going to win you any points, girl. I show more passion than that while holding a can of tuna. I see a wooden actress and no chemistry there. Tom, you could’ve done better. Does she take your breath away, Tom? Huh? Does she?

1:15 – If the man is your significant other, girl, don’t stand so far from him. You stand close to him.

1:29 – Oh, hi Tom. Tom waves at his adoring fans. It’s much better than trying to have an actual conversation with Vanny.

1:39 – Giggling like a pair of loved up fools. I still don’t buy it. *rolls eyes*

1:47 – Look at the man when you’re talking to him!

2:26 – Tom is just standing there. He just has to stand there and look good, but she looks like she’s talking to an extremely good looking mannequin in an elegant suit.

2:54 – Feign kissing! Tom just tilts his head as she shadows his movement. This makes me wonder, how many times did they have to kiss to get it right? 

3:04 – “You’re nice and everything, but you’re no Tom Cruise. Boy, bye!”

3:07-3:18 – Tom looks like the groom who got left at the altar as he gazes after her. All in a kissing day’s work!

THE KISS & ‘CHEMISTRY’

When it comes to kissing, it is vital to get it right. As a writer who employs kissing between characters when there’s chemistry, I cannot for the life of me see any between Kirby and Cruise. I know they were just running the kiss scene, but she looks so awkward and wooden standing right up in his face! Instant chemistry my foot!

If this is his real life woman as the nosy tabloids are saying, I am not buying it.

 :

Where is the sizzling chemistry?
He has more chemistry with a motorbike than her. I mean…

Cue awkward laughing.

Why are her eyes open? And although he looks good in blue,
I just realized how tight Ethan Hunt’s suit is. 

Getting cosy: The duo were leaning in close for a kiss and spent time lingering closely to one another

Get in there, girl. Go on!

Oh, maybe it was his nose that got in the way after all!

National Superhero Day!

This must be my 110th post for the day, but I am having too much fun with the blog to stop 🙂 

Anyway, today is National Superhero Day! With Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman, I couldn’t choose them. They don’t embody the superheroes I grew up on. So, here’s my Superman and my utmost favorite hero who don’t need to wear spandex and a cape to save the world, but he is incredibly stylish! ^^

Casting the live-action version of Aladdin

So here’s another fun post that revolves around Aladdin yet again! 🙂

 :

A few weeks aback, I was talking to a friend of mine about a live version of Aladdin and why wasn’t it done as yet. Yesterday, I woke up to news that a live version of this movie is in the works (I was asleep when this was announced last year with Guy Ritchie at the helm… I think) and Will Smith is in talks to play the Genie.

Image result for gif genie pocahontas

I simply can’t picture Smith as the iconic Genie. I used to like him, but he lost me around Focus and I haven’t watched him in a movie since then. Smith might do a good job as the Genie, but I’m just not feeling him… although I can’t really think who I’d rather do it. Ah… Damon Wayans! I can picture his voice as the Genie.

I’ve always thought Damon to be incredibly funny without trying since In Living Color. I’d take him over Smith and Kevin Hart (he was also considered for the role) any movie given day. As for my beloved Aladdin…

… I see this guy…

That’s Alexis Loizon…

And I know Aladdin is far from French, but Loizon was pretty amazing as Aladdin. He can be currently seen as Stanley in Beauty & the Beast, the reason why many females were #TeamGaston. I haven’t seen this film and I don’t intend to. Another face I like for Aladdin is Avan Jogia. I think he’d be stellar!

Dev Patel is a fine choice too.

And Deniz Akdeniz…

If they’re planning to go for a hip-hop version -because with Hollywood we can never tell- then they can count on Quincy Brown.

Meanwhile, I’m over here like…

As for Jasmine, I haven’t thought of anyone.
