assorted oddities of cinematic and bloggish varieties

Hello again!


Haha, I'm sorry for blogging again so soon.  Truly, I am, but I feel like I haven't posted regularly in a long time, and so the past few days I wanted to seize my opportunity, hehe.  

Thusly I shall proceed to ask you all some questions that have been mulling around in my brain.  

Item #1:  I've a hankering to write a movie review (shocking occurrence), but there are so many possibilities, dontcha know.  So, I leave it up to you:  would you rather read a review of Zootopia, Miracles from Heaven, or a different movie?  "I put it to ya, and I leave it to ya."

"…You disrespect my mother, whom I
buried in that skunk-butt rug, by the way."

Item #2:  Will someone please, for the love of all that is holy, explain to me how it is possible for me, a typically semi-morally-perceptive individual, to mildly hate Jake yet LOVE Hank?!?!  Help me. (For those of you who don't know, I'm talking about the television show, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.)    I don't understand.  I mean, I guess I do, partially:  Jake is a hypocrite, and Hank, whatever his (extensive) faults, couldn't really be called a hypocrite, I don't think.  And the other thing is, I tend to really like those characters that I pity, and I pity Hank.  The problem is, this is my second DQ "bout," and I'm starting to feel sorry for Jake, too--and to realize that he's much more like most of us than most of us would care to acknowledge.  BUT REALLY.  Forgive me for being vulgar, but I must now use some rather blunt language to speak about the disparity between Jake's and Hank's profession.  Seriously, why on earth do I prefer the pimp over the barber?!  I just…I'm starting to get concerned about myself.  No joke.  (But one of my friends informed me that she has the same problem, so at least I know I'm not alone in my depravity.)  It's just that I so want Hank to become a good person already, y'know?  And the whole thing with Myra…and other incidents…I JUST FEEL SORRY FOR HIM AND I WANT HIM TO BE HAPPY, OKAY?  Still, though.  It's pretty sick, isn't it?


Item #3:  Guys, I think I'm going to take the plunge and delete my "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Blogs" page.  It's not that I don't want to give well-deserved mentions to the AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL blogs of you dear people, but the thing is, I'm horribly behind on it.  It's ridiculously out of date.  And I think it'll just continue to be so, so I'm really leaning towards removing it.  If you're curious about what blogs I follow, you can always just look on my profile, right?  Right.  So…yeah.  That's what I'm thinkin' right now :P  

I'M SORRY.  I SHOULDN'T HAVE DONE THIS, I KNOW.  FORGIVE ME.

Welp, that's all for now, folks.  Have a great one, and don't forget that God's got this.  :) <3

    1. Dawwwww, THANK YOU :) You're kind.

      P'raps I will! I just watched it for the first time the other day, and OH MAH GASH. I just cannot :D

      Yeeeeaaaahhhh...yeah. Indeed. Quite. ;)

  2. 1. You can NEVER post too much. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it. :D

    2. IT'S NATALIE PORTMAN!!! I don't know why, but I really like that actress. :) Although I don't know the movie that gif's from...

    3. Yeah, I think you should review Zootopia. I rather liked it myself. :D It was CUTE and FUNNY and FLUFFY. The end.

    4. I think you should delete your other blogs page because it makes sense and I don't think anyone will really mind. ;)

    5. That gif is really sweet. And I haven't even seen Call the Midwife yet. (I mean, I think it's from CtM, right?)

    6. I liked this post, and I REALLY liked your last line. "Have a great one, and don't forget that God's got this. :) <3" <3

  3. THE CTM GIF. :-O STOP THAT AT ONCE.

  4. Right. Because it's unheard of and totally irregular to post more than once in week! NOT! Really, Olivia! Apologizing for posting too much?? Don't be ridiculous! ;P

    Item #1: Well, as I have no idea what Zootopia is, I guess I'd be more interested in reading a review on Miracles from Heaven. However, why don't you just do both of them? (Or would that be posting too much? Haha. Sorry, couldn't resist. ;))

    Item #2: I've never seen Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman so I'm afraid I can't give much of an opinion on this matter, but I wouldn't worry about yourself too much. I mean, I feel sorry for the "not so good guys" sometimes, too.

    Item #3: Totally understandable. Go for it.

    I think maybe I need to watch Call the Midwife? That gif is just TOO sweet! :)

    So good to hear from you again!! Hope you have a lovely Monday!!

  5. I think you should review Zootopia!! But you know, it's your life. You do what you want!

    That little sentence at the end of your post really made my day. Up until now, most of my day has been kind of stressful and crazy, but then after reading "God's got this." I just sat back and took a deep breath. Thank you!

  6. I'd like to read ALL the movie reviews! Eventually. :) But first, I would love to hear your thoughts on Zootopia.

    1. Also, I nominated you for the Blogger Recognition Award: http://violetcottage.blogspot.com/2016/10/blogger-recognition-award.html

    2. Thank you SO much for the nomination, Abby! I truly appreciate it! I'm hoping to write a quick post soon by way of explanation for my prolonged absence from the blogosphere, but due to various circumstances, it'll probably be quite a while before I can get to the award :-/ I'm sorry! Like I said, I really do appreciate you nominating me--it brightened my day :) I hope life's going well in your corner of the world!

  7. You haven't posted much? Ha. Me neither. :P I feel awful about it, but there's just so many things that take up my time!!

    Heehee, I recently watched Zootopia and it was...interesting. Some of it was hysterically funny, but some was just plain weird. I felt like Disney's worldly agenda (AKA non-Christian) was VERY apparent in its story. I'd love to read your thoughts!

    I really want to watch Dr. Quinn....

  8. I'm with you on Hank and Jake!!!! Well, maybe not Jake as much (getting to that) but HANK. I love Hank. I think it's, like you said, because I feel sorry for him. You've seen the ep The Man in the Moon, right? The one where he's so torn up over Myra leaving and he has that conversation with Michaela in the dark saloon and then he's in a coma and all the townspeople come and talk to him? UHHHHHHHHH. And then there's the one where Dr. Mike gets shot and Hank comes to the rescue. He's such a flawed character and he's got so many issues, but in the end, Hank's the devil we know, and I love him. He's got good in him, you KNOW it.

    (Plus his hair is amazing.)

    Jake I tend to not like so much. He doesn't have much backbone; he goes where the wind blows. Occasionally he'll do something really admirable, and he does get better by the end of the show (Teresa helped him a lot) but so many times he's just STUPID. But, I guess, we all are sometimes so he's only human.

    In the end, all those characters are my old friends and I love 'em. :-)

  9. Oh Olivia, you can never post too many blog posts;)

    1.I would love to hear your thoughts on Zootopia, though I probably won't read it until I've actually seen the movie (spoilers and all)

    2. I haven't seen enough episodes of Dr Quinn to properly give my opinion on the cahracter, but I as a general rule tend to like morally questionable characters (that sounds better than villains), mainly because I want them to become good in the end.

  10. We always love your wonderful posts, Olivia! *hugs*

    Ooh...I would be interested in seeing your review of Zootopia! I actually...didn't really care for the movie that much? I dunno. But I would like to hear your thoughts on it. :D

    Seeing as you already deleted your blogs page, I suppose my feedback in that area wouldn't be all that helpful, would it? XD But that's totally fine. My "Beautimous Blogs" page is veeeeery outdated, too. I'll probably keep mine but just spruce it up sometime soon. ^_^

    Loved hearing from you again, Olivia! I've missed you. <3

  11. Whenever you have a movie with a bunny, you should watch that one.

It appears that you're about to leave a comment. I think you should know that if you do, I will giggle and smile and be delirious with joy, and then I'll stalk you to find out whether or not you have a blog *ahem*.

…All that's to say, please comment! :D
