In which Lyndsey begs for forgiveness and obsesses over older men

With the assault of college on my dwindling pool of free time, I've really had no opportunity to dedicate myself to this blog. (WHICH IS SAD.) Of both my blogs, this one in particular feels like a place where I can really joke around and have fun without the pressure of others to keep me from writing. I love that!

After seeing Rigby's recent post, (we should name her queen and lay golden flowers in her wake), I've been inspired to write my own version of it as well. While my list is quite extensive I've chosen to just focus on just three in particular. (Those of which who come immediately to my mind.)

First we have, John Reese. While John is utterly gorgeous, (I cannot even express it enough), his acting is beyond amazing. He is smart, witty, DISBELIEVINGLY EPIC, and has this aura about him that just screams 'I'm a man, deal with it.'
   Needless to say, I was swept off my feet within the first few minutes of his acting. While not afraid to do what needs to be done, he expels both a gritty dark side, but also a merciful one as well. Tormented by his past mistakes, he saves lives in order to give his life meaning, capturing only a fraction of why he is truly an exemplary character.

 Second is, Jace Wayland. (Or whatever they call him nowadays, I believe he has like three names currently.) While I enjoyed the first book of the City of Bones, my vigor thoroughly exploded over Jace as soon as I saw the city of bones. While he doesn't really fit the, 'older man' criteria I mentioned in the title of this post, Jace is enough to blow a hole through whatever wall stands in his way.
   While being a cocky dreamboy, he manages to have the most alluring appearance I've ever faced upon the earth. At the end of the City of Bones film, my sister and I turned to one another and just melted in jittering fangirl heaps. JACE IS GORGEOUS.
   After I saw Jace's character in film, I really had no other words of discontent to utter. I could sit on a couch and play re-runs of the movie all day just to creepily fangirl from a distance.

The Mortal instruments. Alright, no hating on me, but I would find the movie way more enjoyable if they had actually cast attractive people to play the characters. Like Alex Pettyfer as Jace. The girl from Hotel Dogs and Nancy Drew as Clary. There are so many people that would do better!

Finally we have, John Thornton. (I must have a thing for Johns, it's getting repetitive). While I can't recall if this is true or not, Mr. Thornton's character is the first older man I remember having melted over as a younger individual. First a cold, close minded gentleman, John makes a sweeping change of heart towards the end of the film as he falls for Margaret. Very much akin to a Mr. Darcy situation, Thornton played every angel of his part excellently.
   Though his looks are magnificent, there is no denying that his character was what really won me over in the end.

Those geeks.

     Okay ladies. This Christmas time is a time of giving, and so, I've collected some of the best geek guys for this blog, and I'll be labeling the reasons why we love them and why they have been such great gifts to us throughout the years. You're welcome!

          Now some of these may be animated, some may not be, but either way, they're all amazing.

                                                              Tom Hiddleston
                                                                              (Best known for Loki)

                     If there are some Loki fans out there, please give this blog some love because I promise you they'll be much more of this guy on here later on! Since seeing this amazing actor in Thor, the Avengers and Thor the Dark World, I became an instant fan. I've watched some of his other BBC films and shows and I don't understand why this man wasn't more popular sooner! Seriously, he's one of the coolest villains and actors out there. If you don't know him...... where've you been!?
Aidan Turner
(Best known for Kili)

                       One of my more newer favorite actors is Aidan. Of course, I'm lame and discovered him through The Hobbit trilogy like others did, but since my seeing him, I've ventured into more of his television shows and I've fallen more and more in love with this amazing guy. And although he's amazing, I can't help but be sad when I see him out of his Kili costume. But don't worry Aidan! You'll always be a dwarf to me! ...... always...

                                                                          (From the Legend of Zelda)
The first crush we had as a gamer. The hyrulian elf, Link, though silent throughout all
of the games, still shows his emotions well enough for all us fangirls to swoon. Yeah, he's still one of my all time favorites!
 Jim Parsons
(Best known as Sheldon Cooper)

                Yes, even Sheldon Cooper makes it onto the cute list. Although he is not as tough or manly as the other three, you can't help but love Jim and the work he's done on The Big Bang Theory. And even in real life, he's still just as amazing and geeky. Jim has created an adorableness about him that just keeps us on our toes as we watch more episodes, and who can forget the soft kitty song!?

                                                   Christian Bale and Howl
        (Christian is known best for his roles as Batman and his voice for Howl from "Howl's Moving Castle")

So I was going to do just Howl, but then I remembered that the amazing Christian Bale
voices for him, so this is a double win! Howl won us over with his slick charm and polite attire, but so did Christian Bale with his role as Batman and just by being himself. Both Howl and Bale are just two amazing characters, and both could not be left off the list.
That's it for now ladies, and trust me, this could have been much much longer! Anyway,
that's it for this write, and hopefully I have brought you the gift of amazing actors and characters.
Tis always a joy!

Tis the season to watch reruns, falalalalaa

        Yes! It is the beautiful Christmas season, where stores are crowded and yards are covered in inflatable fat men! Oh the magic!

    At my house, we've collected most of the Christmas specials and movies. Most are still in VCR tape form. (Yeah, those still exist!) And no matter how many times I've watched them, they still never get old. Though I love them all, they're are definite favorites to watch. And I've decided to share my top five with you! Maybe you've seen them, maybe you haven't. Whatever the case, here are some Christmas films and moments that you'll love to watch over and over again!

                         "It's Christmas Time Again Charlie Brown!"

       I can hear  the "good grief" already. Though this is not the original Charlie Brown Christmas with the sad little Christmas tree, this newer episode contains some great moments. With a kid named, "Harold Angel", a dumb Christmas wreath, an angel that says "HOCKEY STICK!", and an angered girl who plays a sheep, this episode was just a cute and funny memory of mine. I loved the characters, and Charlie Browns difficulty with dealing with so much Christmas cheer. A classic to have on the holidays.

          "How the Grinch Stole Christmas (with Jim Carrey)"

                 Now this may not be the original that everyone is used to, but this film from the 2000s was and is hilarious! I don't have cable so I'm not too sure if they play this one on T.V. anymore, but if they still do, I hope the rest of you get to watch it! Jim Carrey brings the Grinch to life, and makes Dr.Suess's book into a living comedy with still a good heartfelt ending.

          "The Big Bang Theory s.2 : The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis"
For those early watchers of The Big Bang Theory, you have to remember this episode! I won't
spoil anyone of what the episode was about, but I will spoil the ending for you... Sheldon hugs Penny for the first time! And it is the cutest most awkward hug ever. Seriously nailed it's spot on this list of Christmas favorites.
"The Year Without A Santa Claus"
A Christmas classic that I know should always be playing every year, this film
we watch every year still on the trusty VCR. I always loved these characters when I was little and I was all for team Heat Miser!
Now I'm not sure if this film "really" counts as a Christmas film, but it is still one of
my favorites. With it's cheesy 80's music and graphics, and those memorable little gremlin moments, this film I believe fits in with a geek's Christmas.
So those are my top five, maybe I left a few classics out, but honestly, they're all my favorite.
Through all the films and show specials, these just throw me into the Christmas spirit and all share a good Christmas moral of sharing, caring, and love. Okay, maybe that was alitttle too Mr.Roger's, but it's true!
Anyway, apologize for being so quiet for so long, things are starting to
slow down now, so I'll try my best to get a write in here and there!
 Till next write,
