Currently...(4)

I will be posting a "Currently..." update every other Tuesday along with Katy Upperman.

I found the Currently post at Kate Hart's blog, who got the idea from Amy Lukavics, who found it here.

Please join in and link me in the comments if you do! You are free to use (or not use) any of the headers. I used all of them in my last update but won't be this time.

Loving
The housewarmings I went to for my friends. One of them just moved to their new place, which happens to be near some great food places! We had pizza and amazing donuts (Nutella! Green tea! Samoa! Lime!)
The other friends had been moved in but finally had their housewarming gathering. They had all sorts of cool Star Wars decorations, and we made magnets!


Also, I always love the Sister's hilarious imitations. Special Marvel edition: Daredevil and Thor.


Last week as part of a work trip, we went to visit the Huy Fong plant, which is basically sriracha sauce HQ. There are many brands of sriracha, but the most well known is Huy Fong (you may recognize the rooster brand). It was really cool to see the factory and learn a bit about the production process, and it's a California-grown and based business! It ended with a trip to a gift shop.



Watching
The new Avengers: Age of Ultron, which I liked! Of course, I had some nits to pick, but it was fun and it's always kind of awesome to see that cast together. Plus, the Sister and I won tickets to a pre-screening at IMAX HeadQuarters, so it was extra cool because it was in their private theater, in 3D, and giant. We also got a shirt after.


I also re-watched the old musical 1776, which I remember seeing in 8th grade. It was funnier upon this rewatch because I discovered so many things that went right over my head. Hah. For you Boy Meets World fans, 1776 stars a young Mr. Feeny as John Adams!


Reading
So many graphic novels - Vol. 6 of The Sandman Fables & Reflections and Ms. Marvel Vol. 1: No Normal!


Listening
Aluna George: went to a concert at the Masonic Lodge at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Aluna was great, but not gonna lie, walking through the cemetery at night was a little creepy.



Anticipating
Disneyland and Star Wars movie marathoning - both hopefully soon! I'm also looking forward to more book mail thanks to my book-fairy blogger friend Jess at The Reading Nook Reviews.



Making me happy
My growing Loki stash. Though this new Avengers movie has nothing really to do with Loki, somehow I've gotten more stuff...? Our Loki likes the shirt.


Star Wars Day! May 4th is Star Wars Day! We celebrated by dressing up, of course. May the Fourth be with you! (And today is "Revenge of the Fifth.")



Q4U: Update me on you and/or have you seen the new Avengers movie yet and what did you think? (Mind the spoilers!)


P.S. May 4th was also the very last day of the Hamilton musical at the Public Theater. For my flail-y feels on the musical, see my NYC Trip: Part 3 post!

Happy to hear you enjoyed Age of Ultron. I haven't been paying too much attention to people's thoughts on it because I haven't yet seen it. Soon, I hope. But then there was that whole Joss Whedon leaving Twitter thing, and it got me all worried. 0_o

This is just weird, but I haven't tried anything with sriracha yet. I know, I know... I like hot stuff, but I wasn't sure if it was going to be too hot. Anyway, you're making me want to give it a go. ;-)

Loki in a Loki T-shirt. It's all I ever wanted and didn't know I needed from this Tuesday.

Also, your fashion pics make you look like a badass model. I want to say you look cute, but that might contradict the whole badass thing.

Those donuts look good!

Those donuts look sooooo good omg!

That is quite the epic Loki collection. I am most impressed!

Avengers came out in the UK a week before the US. It was alright. I think I'm suffering from extreme superhero fatigue, so I'll be taking a break from the MCU for a while.

Have a great week!

Okay, yours is the second blog post I've read today that mentions Nutella donuts -- YUM! Must find somewhere to sample one. Loki looks predictably adorable in his Yoda ears and Loki t-shirt. Such a cute pup! Have a wonderful week, Alice!

The dog costume is sooo cute! I'm headed to Age of Ultron this weekend...and can hardly wait. And love the Loki collection!
