If you put a bowl of M&Ms next to Tony while he’s working, he will mindlessly eat out of it until the entire thing is gone. If you put a bowl of Skittles next to him, he will take one bite then look at you like you just stepped on a puppy. If you even consider mixing the two in one bowl, you will wake up the next morning to find several embarrassing photos of yourself circulating Facebook.

Natasha will do terrible, terrible, illegal things if you bribe her with a cookies and cream Hershey’s bar.

Steve realizes most 21st century candy isn’t that good for you, but has a penchant for sour candy. He once ate an entire bag of sour gummy worms while attempting to watch the original Star Wars trilogy in one evening. He spent most of episode 6 throwing up.

Clint can often be found munching on peanut butter snacks. One of his favorite assassination tricks is to eat a bunch, then breath on the face of someone with a nut allergy. It’s almost completely untraceable and not suspicious as an assassination plot.

Bruce eats mostly organic foods and will only consume candy on special occasions.

Thor refuses to declare a favorite until he has sampled every delicacy on Earth. He is, however, fond of danishes.

Phil will eat any cookie put in front of him, but hardly ever touches candy. He claims he’s trying to lose weight, but that raises the question of why he has a donut every single day around mid-morning.

Nick’s favorite foods are a state secret, or so he claims.

Maria is usually seen eating small meals in the SHIELD cafeteria. However, she has been known to consume an entire double or triple cheeseburger in near-record time.

Pepper’s favorite is salt-water taffy from a small shop in coastal Maine. For her birthday, Tony bought her 500.

Growing up, one of my all time favorite cartoons was “Jem and the Holograms”. Last week an image was released from the upcoming live action film “Jem”. It’s been reported on fan blogs that there are no Misfits, no Synergy and no holograms! Ugh!  This does indeed make me sad. So, over the weekend I doodled out my version of Jem and Pizzazz. It made me feel a little better. Even while I realized we may never get my dream version of the Jem movie where Kylie Minogue plays Synergy. :( 

#TrulyOutrageous

Who knew?

Asking actors to film a love scene is a weird thing. It’s like going up to two people and saying, “You’re in committed relationships, now go make out with someone else for half a day.” Because that’s not awkward. 

Thankfully, Lindsey Morgan and Steve Talley are the best. They were totally professional about the whole thing, so while it was still awkward, it was less so than it could have been. The two of them get along and they’re both hilarious in their own right, so putting them together is like watching a two-person comedy show in between takes. I still laugh reading over the notes and quotes I jotted down. I do hope something of theirs makes it onto the blooper reel.

Now, this love scene was always meant to be as passionate as we could make it. I actually wrote in the script, “Off the hottest sex we can show on 9pm network television…” That meant losing Raven’s bra. I believe our director, Uta, actually wanted to go further than that, but we ran out of time. 

So we get to the point where Wick unhooks Raven’s bra. In the midst of all the jokes Lindsey and Steve are volleying at each other, Steve mentions that he can get a bra off one-handed. The implication being, this’ll be no problem.

And that, my friends, is called tempting fate

In real life, Raven’s bra is one of those Nike sports-style deals with, like, 6 hook-and-eye closures in back. It is the Fort Knox of bras. Not only was there no way to get that thing off one-handed, Steve couldn’t get it off with two hands! He joked his way through a couple tries, Lindsey giggling all the while, until he graciously admitted defeat. I suspect others might not be so laidback about announcing you can do something to a hundred people and then kinda failing at it. Not Steve. He laughed it off, which let everyone else laugh it off. 

We decided to cheat the moment, calling in our costumes guy to unhook all but one of the closures. (You’ll notice that in the show we only see the last closure come undone, which is really the important moment anyway.) It even took him a bit of time to get it undone. 

And then it was tough to rehook the damn thing in between takes! Steve’s laughing comment, “I don’t put them on!” received hilarious teasing from Lindsey. It turned out he could, though, and it was a victory shared by all. Not to mention a helpful time-saver in resetting our shots. 

Fort Knox of bras, you guys. Who knew?

I wish I could convey how hilarious it was. As it happened, I was just grateful that these two are so cool, that they spent the whole time giving each other shit, because in another world where it was Serious Drama all of this would be so much more awkward. Thank goodness for people who don’t take themselves too seriously. 

And if it all sounds terribly intimate…yeah, you’re not wrong.
