marvel - purple barton

the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse

It's that time again.

Christmasing is more or less done over here; the gifts have been opened, the Christmas spaghetti has been eaten, and the most sacred and traditional part of our festivities- the viewing of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, because, seriously, fuck all them other Christmas movies- has already been completed.

It has been a bit of a trying one, but we're making it; I have to wonder, however, how much better we could be making it if my parents drank (my father offered me a glass of wine at dinner the other night, and you could knocked me over with a feather). But, watching a bunch of Archer and getting a stand mixer has eased things considerably.

So, if you celebrate Christmas- whether as a secular or religious holiday- may Santa make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. If you celebrate Hanukkah, I hope you get an eighth of all the things you wanted today (that's how it works, right?). If you don't celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah, enjoy your day off. If you don't have the day off, I hope your Yuletide story is everything you hoped for.

If you don't celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah, don't have the day off, and aren't participating in Yuletide... well. I've done all I can for you, really. Have a good day anyway.

Hallelujah, holy shit.

Just rewatched X2, for reasons

Can I just say how much I love Magneto, Mystique and their giggly, snarky love? I mean, they're just, like, all over each other, and her concerned, surprised face when she finds out Stryker knows where Erik is is priceless, you guys, despite the fact that she's Bruce Davison at the time.

And it's so much better with XMFC in front of it, because they've been together for, like, 30 years at this point and they're still snarking people's fashion choices. Charles has accepted his responsibilities and limitations, aging gracefully and with dignity, where as at some point Magneto and Mystique were just like "FUCK A LOT OF BEING SAD" and decided to be catty bitches instead.

I just love them so much, you guys. Really, you can take Erik, Charles, and Raven, put them in a bag, and whatever two you pull out, they're great together (we would also accept just dumping the bag out and taking all three).

Sigh. So much mutant love. <3
