Lokiday!

By the time you read this, Krispy and the Sister and our friend and I will have seen Thor: The Dark World.  We are excited.  We love the Loki.  Everybody loves Loki.

Speaking of which, Krispy told me how she read that dogs basically stop paying as much attention to you if you talk to them too much, i.e. they might ignore you when you call them because they're too used to the sound of your voice and tune you out.  Possibly this is why our Loki goes charging off willy-nilly into the forbidden recesses of the back yard to scarf down fallen avocados regardless of how we yell, "LOKI NO LOKI GET BACK HERE LOKI OUT LOKI!!!"

Doubtless what he hears is, "LOKI EAT MOAR AVOCADOS 4EVR LOKI!!1"

Perhaps if Thor had spoken to Loki more nicely and specifically instead of interrupting him half the time and ignoring him the other half, Loki wouldn't have metaphorically run into the backyard toward that avocado tree.

Anyway, let's celebrate Thor 2 and the various Lokis in our lives with gratuitous dog!Loki picspam!  Hooray!

"HEY YOU GUYS HI"
"I don't know if I like this. Mommy, what are we doing?"
An elusive horned-and caped Loki captured by the equally elusive Finn-the-Human-hoodied Alz.
We were all sad that this Star Wars dog sweater was too small for
Loki's massive and muscular masculine chest.

"I know you see this thing over my eye. It will bother you
forever because its position has now been photographically immortalized."
Look at them pearly chompers.

Lifeguard Loki on duty!
They are the best of friends, Loki and Sadie. Srsly.
They only look like they're trying to kill each other,
but it's all in good fun.
When we went out to eat in a big group with friends
at a place that had butcher paper covering the tables,
I drew all our canine companions.
Also, Krispy's Sister thoughtfully points out that 99% of Thor 2's promotion seems to revolve around someone other than the titular character here: 10 Reasons Why 'Thor: The Dark World' is Really the Loki Show.

Here's to having an awesome weekend!  November's a good month cinematically speaking, what with The Return of Loki Thor: The Dark World, Ender's Game, The Book Thief, Catching Fire, and no doubt more titles that I'm forgetting.  Got any movies you're excited about?

I like Ender's Game, even more than I thought I would. And I can't wait to see Catching Fire--reread the book just to make sure all the details were fresh in my mind.

I can't wait to hear what you all thought of Thor. Or rather, the new Loki movie. :)

BTW, loved the photos of the dog.

I'm looking forward to Thor 2–err, I mean, The Loki Show (can't wait to hear how you guys liked it), Ender's Game, The Desolation of Smaug, and Winter's Tale (just saw that trailer yesterday and it looks so lovely and romantic!). I rarely go to the movies, though, and wait until they come on Netflix. So I get behind on movie watching. Like right now I'm waiting for Monsters University! Crossing my fingers it'll be next up. :)

Happy reading and writing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines
