Are you watching this show yet?! It has ladies and excellent songs and hijinks and awesome ladies and Steven. Steven is perfect. He gets it from his dad (who in a canonic conversation was told that his problem was that he prefers one gigantic lady to lots of regular ones).
spoiler cut for this week's flail condensed into one post:
*Garnet origin episode yesssssss. I absolutely love that she held to her promise of telling Steven about herself on his birthday, and that she was so excited to do it that she woke him up at midnight. Estelle doing everybody else's voices was gold. RUBY WAS GOLD. Panicky nervous oh shit i have to save you Ruby was flawless. Rose was a liiiittle creepy, but I was cool with that.
*I loved the reveal that Steven hasn't changed in like 5 years and that gems are weird, and Connie and Greg's human meeting. Steven trying to age up for Connie was pretty adorable, as was Amethyst trying to be the voice of reason. When Amethyst says you're doing it wrong, it's a problem. Gems being useless with babies, A+ because accurate, and Greg driving around to calm Steven down aaawwww. There's a flashback I could use. I've been missing Connie, so I'm glad she was here, and I hope we go back to beach city soon.
*PERIDEMPTION. I'll just smoosh all this together. I was not expecting it to happen that fast! I love the new gem place on the moon (I love when they go to new places in general because you get to look around at all the gem art in the background. I think my favorite part was the map though, wahhhhh creepy. The snobby yellow pearl cracked me up as well as Pearl's line that "not all pearls know each other, Steven, ugh." And then poor Peridot just wanting efficiency and being shattered Yellow Diamond isn't flawlessly interested in that. My favorite part of 79 was her having her meltdown into her tape recorder (except for maybe the very end where she's groaning in agony as steven hugs her).
*Dude, I was so startled by Garnet's "let's fuse" because like all of Garnet's fusion things it was just this side of shady/sexual, and part of my shock was shock and part of it was how are they getting this on this kids' show omg, and then in the ten seconds where I thought it was going to happen i suddenly wanted it MORE THAN ANYTHING, but boo. Teeeeease. It's going to be amethyst/peridot, I know it. Amethyst getting mad and revoking Peridot's nicknames, and Peridot make-believe roleplaying that she's going to get shit down from high shelves for Amethyst. I don't have strong feelings about it, though. I'm not against it, but...Peridot's more childish than Steven in a lot of ways, and I wouldn't be down for a Amethyst/Steven relationship either.
*It took 3 re-watches for it to sink in that Percy/Pierre were both male names, ahahaha.
Ugh it's so flawless uuuuuugh.
Also this week I watched both Seven Days movies, since the second one just got subbed by Aarinfantasy, and oh man. They're a little slow but SWEET and CUTE and oh my god the kissing. The second kissing scene are the best movie kisses everrrrrr. It has a happy ending and nobody dies and nothing weird or violent happens, so I recommend it whole-heartedly to you. The only other BL movie I can name that's no angst/no weirdness is Ai no Kotodama (which I also recommend).
I like kissing so much. I don't know why there isn't a softcore studio that makes tons of money just filming guys having awkward dates and holding hands and kissing and did I mention being awkward. You would have to pay dudes way less to do that than fuck each other, I have to imagine, and I cannot be the only person who would throw so much money at them. (Dear JE you could just film Genki/Jinguji walking around, that would be close enough, because if they are not for serious dating I will eat this pen).
I have to have to finish JE United this weekend, which is like maybe half done, because once school started i was useless. And my online class starts a week late so I even had the week off that, but it didn't matter. Last night I fell asleep for two hours on the floor during chinchilla time, which let me tell you is NOT preferable. Craaaaaash.
I'm going to start a temperature blanket, which is where you crochet a row a day for whatever the temperature is that day, so you get like a crazy rainbow thing at the end. i barely had to even buy any yarn (because I'm a hoarder) so I have 12 colors that are kind of muted rainbow rather than crayony. A friend at school is doing it too, so I used the internet to dig up what the temperature was at noon so far since Jan 1. If my birthday was closer, I'd start from there, but it's not until april so ehh.
I am gonna bake the no knead bread tomorrow, and I hope it doesn't suck because I'm not supposed to be eating bread anyway. But I have all this bread flour I accidentally bought instead of all-purpose.
