Wrap it up!

Happy Friday!

I am still trying to get through the First Loves Blogfest list. I'm determined to get further with that list than I did with the A to Z list.

***

I received a lovely blog award yesterday from Gossip_Grl. Thank you so much.



I tried not to look it up, I did, but I really wanted to know why Kreativ was spelled that way.




Turns out it's from a blogger from Norway and it was more of a hands on scrap book kind of creative than anything else.

It appears the rules on her blog are different too. I say appears because I don't speak, read or write Norwegian.

But, you guys know me well enough to know that I don't follow rules anyway.

So, I'm just going to say Thank You to Gossip_Grl and leave it at that.

I'm hoping to get right back into my story this weekend. This week has been very hectic. Doing some 'work for pay' work and hosting a blood drive has kept me from getting the words from the notebook into the laptop. Must make some progress soon before my brain explodes.

***

I did get to see The Avengers last weekend.

So. Freakin'. Good.

I won't post a lot of information here for those of you who haven't made it out to see it yet.

I'll just say...go see it.
Go see it.
Go now.
GO!

It was just the right balance of story to action. Great dialogue. Great acting by great actors. Great laughs.

It was everything I expected from Mr. Joss Whedon and yet so much more.

Really. I'm not even up-selling. (Go see the movie)

Well...that's all I've got. (Go see the movie)

I hope y'all have a great weekend. (Go see the movie)




Well? Did you GO yet?

"I say appears because I don't speak, read or write Norwegian." - That gave me a chuckle!
Really glad I inserted the exact links for the blogfest as quite a few people are still exploring the list.
And the Avengers was the PERFECT balance. Whelon rocks. Seeing it again next weekend.

Congrats on your award!

I'm still working my way through the First Loves Blogfest posts, too. I'm hoping I'll get done this weekend--but not going to count on it. :)

Have a nice weekend!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Congrats on the award! I did see the movie and it was excellent.

Donna Shields said...

Pretty blog award. Congrats! I'm still working through the LoveFest list myself

MJ said...

No, no I haven't gone yet! :) I'll wait for the DVD. Congrats on the award! I made good progress on the love fest list, but I think I'm gonna call it quits. :(
Have a great weekend!

Nancy Thompson said...

Congrats on the award. I got one, too! And, though I haven't seen it yet, I totally believe you about The Avengers. How could a billion dollar movie possibly be bad? Have a great weekend, Heather!

Angela Felsted said...

OH, man, I am so jealous. I really want to see The Avengers.

Kela McClelland said...

Congrats on the award!.

I'm planning to work through the First Loves list this weekend. I visited some, but nowhere near as many as I wanted to.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend! :D

Clarissa Draper said...

I haven't seen avengers yet! I'll have to go see it now.

Heather Murphy said...

Congratulations and interesting info on the origin

Tonja said...

I will be writing this weekend too (after not writing enough this week). I really want to see the movie, but I can't until I get these chapters written.

I was desperately looking for a mother's day present for my mom last Sunday - I got her a gnome! :) I'm so tired, I have no idea if I already left that as a comment earlier in the week.

Lisa said...

Your reaction to Avenger's was the same as my daughter's and yes, I will go to see it asap! Doing a blood drive is ALWAYS a good thing to do so don't beat yourself up about not writing. Life should come first in situations like that. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I like your blog! Fun and interesting. I'll be back!

Heather M. Gardner said...

Alex – Thank you. You’re blogfest is so much fun. It’s like getting a sneak peek into someone’s headspace! Great idea…as usual.

Dana – Thanks. It would be great if I could finish the list but not sure it’s gonna happen. We do the best we can, right?

L. Diane – Thank you! Yes, I agree. Excellent.

Donna – Thank you. It’s a great list of people too!

MJ – I hadn’t been out to the movies in so long. I waited for The Avengers for a year. It really is worth the theater. It’s big. But, I’ll be out to get the DVD first thing too!

Nancy – Thank you! This award seems to be making the rounds. It’s sweet of someone to think of me. The movie is heading up the list to break more records too!

Angela – Make it happen, Angela! I believe in you!

Kela – I definitely want to hit a few more on the list. Thank you!

Clarissa – Go see it! Now!

Heather – I’m so nosy. I just have to look some things up! : )

Tonja – I love that you got her a gnome! Did she like it?

Lisa – Thank you so much! Yes, go see the movie! It’s a few hours well spent! And welcome!

Thanks everyone!

I agree, Whedon did a fabulous job on the Avengers! Definitely one to go see again and buy on DVD.

Oh I haven't seen it yet but can't wait. I hope it's not stopped showing but time I get round to it lol. Gratz on your award:)

Michael Pierce said...

Congrats on the award! Everyone's talking about The Avengers and I feel left out because I won;t be able to see it until it come out on video. :( Never follow the rules, which is the first rule of writing...damnit...that's another rule. Let's never speak of this again.

Heather Murphy said...

I am stopping by to award you with another award. Put on those stilettos and head to my blog for the Stylish Blogger Award!

loverofwords said...

Congrats from me. Being appreciated is a gift, to you and to the giver :)

Heather M. Gardner said...

Michael - Ha! You made me laugh...a lot. I've skipped movies for a year to go see this one. I bet it will be out for X-Mas though!

Heather - That's so awesome! Thank you! I'll come visit!

loverofwords - So true. Thank you so much.

Thanks everyone for stopping in!

I'm one of those weirdos who was a bit underwhelmed by the Avengers. But then a friend pointed out that compared to all the other Marvel movies, there was very little to complain about. True, that, but not sure it's a good enough reason to give the movie 5/5 stars. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy it...but it still had a certain cheese factor.
