While I had a blast here at LiveJournal, I just wanted to let you all know that I'll be keeping everything (as I have for several months now) at Tripping Toward Lucidity, the Estella's Revenge blog. 


I hope you'll stop by and see me! And I'll still be here reading up on my friends and getting my House MD fangirl fix. :)

April Issue of Estella's Revenge!

The April issue of Estella's Revenge is online now! Check out reviews with Billy Collins, Sara Gruen, Stacey Ballis, and Malanie Lynne Hauser, not to mention plenty of reviews, articles, and columns!



Estella is back!

I know, I've been gone forever. October was it? My thesis took over my life, as did the project that I'm here to announce! If you're a book whore like myself, go check out the newly revamped Estella's Revenge, a 'zine about books!

Halloween is quickly approaching, and with the holiday comes all the costumey festivities. This year I've decided to outdo myself with the weirdness of my costume. A little backstory....

We're teaching a sequence on religion in the freshman English classes at the university this semester, so a friend of mine and my office mate got us an "Ask Me Jesus." Now, if you haven't seen the "Ask Me Jesus" anywhere, it's a foot-tall pink Jesus figurine that spits out answers like a magic 8-ball. Simply shake and you have the wisdom of the ages at your fingertips. For instance, some of Jesus' favorite words of advice are: "Watch for the lightning!" "Let me ask my dad," and, "I died for this?"

In the spirit of the quirkiness of such a bauble, I'm going to our university Halloween bash (the Edgar Allen Poe-try Reading) dressed as the Messiah himself. But not only the Messiah, a Messiah with all the answers. After I drape myself in sheets and throw on my Jesus sandals I will proceed to carry a styrofoam block with the appropriate advice attached. Anyone can ask, and I'll have all the answers.

What did you all think of the episode of House last night? I must admit to laughing my ass mostly off. This episode seemed much funnier than most of the eps as of late--and funnier than the majority of Season 2. Love that his stalker has spores in her brain. It's always something. 

Also wasted away 3 hours watching the first season of Coupling yesterday. Totally worth it. Jeff's long diatribe in the "The Woman with Two Breasts" episode about collecting women's ears in a bucket almost made me pee. Yay. A new obsession!

My God, I've been away from LJ for a long time! A lot has happened since I posted last:

Wrote my Masters Comprehensive Exam (no word on the passing yet)
Joined Match.com (long story)

...ok, so maybe not that much has happened.

On the obsession fronts:

LOVING the new season of House. Very glad he's back on the cane quickly and a breakdown is on the horizon. The Zach Braff obsession continues as I work my way diligently through all five seasons of Scrubs (thank you, Netflix). I went to see The Last Kiss this weekend, and while I wasn't immediately sure what I thought, it's grown on me. It wasn't the happy-go-lucky date type movie they tried to market it as, which I think is GREAT! It went to some pretty dark places--fidelity, committment, settling down, etc. Overall, I give it 2 thumbs up and the soundtrack gets an enthusiastic 2 thumbs and 2 toes up. Amazing! 

With that, I'm out. I took some sinus meds and I'm ready to pass out. 

Until later....but it won't be a month this time! I have House icons to make!

New Fandom Goodness

Hi, I'm Andi, and I'm a Garden State addict.

It's official...I'm jumping on the Garden State/Zach Braff bandwagon. I resisted watching Garden State for ages because I didn't think it could be as good as everyone said. I resisted watching Scrubs because could Zach Braff REALLY be as good as everyone said? YES! Yes he can, damnit!

I'm not one for sappy movies lately, but while Garden State is quite sweet, it's also quite quirky and artfully shot. *loves it*

As for Zach...brilliant. And so young! And so cute with his big nose!  *gushes*

OK, gonna shut up now. Have added Zach fanlisting stuff up top. In the meantime MySpace him or go visit his wicked cool blog: http://www.zachbraff.com

An age and a half....

I know, I know. It's been an age since I've updated. Things are nutty as a fruitcake around here, BUT I have a big announcement. eiluned, ertheuponerthe, and myself have opened the official Tom Hollander fanlisting!!! If you haven't a clue who Tom is, you need to watch Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest to see him as that asshat, Beckett. If you want to see him in an even more smashing role, rent or add Bedrooms & Hallways to your Netflix queue. He plays the gay guy that every girls wants as her best friend (and I always want to steal his "Hell" t-shirt).

In the meantime, go check out the fanlisting (and join!) because eiluned, did an amazing job!
