tehkittykat: solid snake smirking (mgs; snake smirk)
Totoro-car is doing great, had an oil change. It was actually free, my only cost was sitting around for about two hours. And they washed it. I like this place. I think I shall get cars from them in the distant future as well. (Hey I have a six year car loan and I intend to keep the car for a few years more before having to start this cycle over again. And Toyota so it shouldn't give me huge problems when I endeavor to do this. And extended warranty, so repairs are covered after the first hundred bucks for the life of the loan. Tires aren't covered.. but honestly glancing at the tire ads they're a wee bit cheaper than the tire place Dad dragged me to!)

Did groceries, got a second pair of jeans (Changing pants sizes means I was kinda out of jeans... all my old pairs were falling off and finally got around to donating them last weekend. Thankful I still have shorts and capris that fit since I had to run and get those mid-summer last year.) and a yoga strap for helping with some of the poses, particularly the ones where I have to try and wrap my arms around my thighs. Need to get back on doing that. Been running around so solidly the last several days and wearing bad shoes that I haven't been bothering. I saw a sequence in Yoga Journal I might be able to pull off for real this time (less bendy/contracty stuff, more balancing in standing poses which I can do better). Otherwise will probably run my app. My book will get here by Wednesday according to tracking, and then I'll have some more options.

Saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Yes, I can definitely confirm that the April 8 Agents of Shield will have major spoilers for the big plot twist in the movie. (Perhaps not so much the more movie-specific details, but the villain is.. awesome.) It's one that's been foreshadowed a bit, particularly picking up something briefly looked at and dropped in Avengers, but it's still a bit of a gotcha. Otherwise it was a lovely enjoyable Steve, Nat, and Sam do things and snark movie, and a lot less grimdark than you'd think just looking at trailers. There's even some social commentary on current events up in there, and I love that Marvel had Captain America doing what he did in response. Too bad the allegory is likely to go right above some people's heads. (Also I bet Tony would be super pissed about what his tech was used for... I can't wait to see the obligatory checking-in first act of Avengers: Age of Ultron at this rate.) It was an interesting choice for how they're going to shovel Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch into the Avengers without being allowed to say mutant. I'm also thinking Falcon will be on the team in the second movie.. and did they foreshadow having Captain Marvel on the line up sometime? Because that one lady sorta looked a lot like Carol Danvers even if her name is supposed to be Sharon. Dr. Strange also got namedropped, so there's another possibility for another movie. I was left wondering what the hell Hawkeye was doing, though. I hope we find out, I like that guy.

Avengers 3 when it happens will probably be the most awesome thing since ever. They're actually building a decent second act with these movies, raising the stakes and having all the characters actually making major developments, as well as deepening and exploring more with the characters who weren't as developed the first go round. The stakes are getting higher and that's even before we start seeing the more straight foreshadowing of what's going to happen in Avengers 2. I can actually see it making sense now that they seem to be holding Thanos in the wings. He's probably going to be the third-act villain. Might not even show that much in Guardians of the Galaxy-- I have no idea since I haven't seen a new trailer yet, but my bet is that it's going to play as a more straight game of treasure hunt/keep away and we won't see Thanos in action yet. Maybe give them an excuse to get one or more infinity gems on Earth as things get more intense for the heroes there, then drop Thanos on them. That I can kind of see.

And just FYI I make no promises about spoilers in comments if you are worried about Cap 2 spoilers.
