Relationship status: happily married 30 years (yes, kiddos, happy marriages do exist and yes, kiddos, I’m old. ish.)
Favourite colour: red, usually
Lipstick or chapstick: lip balm, usually Blistex (Chapstick feels like I rubbed a crayon on my lips, ugh) but also a freebie I get from my dentist that is surprisingly good and has, of all things, sunflower butter in it?? There’s a few lipsticks I really like when I want to look a little more posh and polished: Clinique butter shine, Nars lip pencils, and Fresh Sugar… shades all vary depending on time of year and how bold I feel like being. And yeah, they’re all a little on the pricey side but I don’t buy much makeup nor wear it every day, so I tend to splurge on the good stuff when I do. I’m super picky about how lipstick feels, so yeah… those are all lipsticks that I can tolerate.
Last song I listened to: the song Barry sang to Iris at the end of The Flash last night, can’t remember the name?? Something about coming home. (That ep was cute, but also so incredibly cheesy… as a non-musical-lover I couldn’t decide if I should smile or cringe, to be honest. But hey, it gave me a chance to hear Jesse L. Martin and Carlos Valdes sing, so I was happy while still forever bitter they killed off Eddie and so Rick Cosnett wasn’t part of this, because listen…
…those men can sing.
Last movie I watched:Dr. Strange, which, unpopular tumblr opinion time, I love.
Top 3 TV shows: Oh glory, just three… um… The Flash, Arrow, and Luke Cage. And because math is not my strong suit, Twelve Monkeys and Grimm. #forevercryingthatGrimmisending
Top 3 characters:
Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers, Sam Wilson, and again, non-existent math
skills*: T’Challa, Aragorn and Halbarad, and Lucy from Timeless and Dr. Christine Palmer from Dr. Strange.
*which sounds nicer than ‘I
reject your meme reality and replace it with my own.’
Top 3 ships: BuckyNat, Aragorn & Arwen, pasta and cheese, kahlua and coffee, moscato and dark chocolate, sausage and pancakes,
garlic/butter/bread are my OT3
… oops, sorry. I’m just really hungry right now.
Books I’m currently reading: I am in a terrible, terrible
book slump. I can’t really settle into one and it’s making me worried
something has shorted out in my brain (it hasn’t; just had a lot of
low-key, draggy stress in my life lately), but on the other hand, I’m
reading a lot of Bucky Barnes fanfic. And graphic novels and comics. Right now I’m reading Marvels, which is a really cool retelling of Marvel comics history from the viewpoint of a civilian newspaper writer/photographer who saw it as it all unfolded in the 40s, 50s, 60s etc. So I’m reading, just not
traditional books at the moment.
that tiredness of seeing people on tumblr demanding more diversity in media but every time a new franchise comes along those same people keep idolizing the same skinny white bad boy type above all else…
For an actor to have the chance to go and play something that’s far away from yourself, physically and also in terms of personality, character, is so much fun. It’s slightly terrifying that you won’t live up to it, but it’s just the most creatively satisfying challenge.
