Gourmet Sandwich / Salad fast food

If you're ever in San Diego and go to the Fashion Valley mall and have to eat at the food court, I recommend skipping the gourmet salad/sandwich place. It sucked. I hate when I go to a place and pay way too much money for mediocre food. I'm not a big fan of food court food to begin with but there aren't a lot of options for food at the resort.

I don't think I got food poisoning, but I regret not going for soup and salad at the bakery on level 1. My husband isn't helping either, he's like why did you order so much??? But I didn't realize I had ordered that much until the food came out. Seriously, I hate these kind of places. I like to sit down, browse the menu, review the prices, and then order and have someone bring the food to me. I feel way too much pressure when there is a line of people behind me wanting to order. It's awkward. :(

California Pizza Kitchen and the bakery place on the first level have had the best food. My husband does not want to try Cheesecake Factory, I found out tonight that he thought all they served was cheesecake. I got a good laugh out of that one. But I think he got it into this head to avoid this place so not sure we'll be eating there this week.

San Diego U.S. Go Congress

I joined my husband in San Diego for the 2017 U.S. Go Congress. I feel like all the comic con conference reports always fail to mention just how awesome the weather is in this area. It's August, but it's not hotter than 75 and at night it's in the low 70s high 60s, which coming from Alaska feels great!

Kimi no na wa (Your Name) movie rec

This last Friday I saw one of the best movies I've seen in a year, it's a Japanese animated movie. I laughed, cried, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about this movie. I saw the subtitled version and it was a full audience. The animation is gorgeous, the characters felt real, and I loved the score.

If you have the opportunity you should watch this movie while it's still out in theaters.

LJ shenanigans

Hello everyone, due to recent changes to LJ, I've decided to no longer cross-post to the site. I'm going to keep my LJ for now, mostly for the communities. But I no longer want to support the site with new content.

Oliver & Jack: On The Isle Of Dogs

My friend just released her newest book on Amazon. For anyone following the series, here is the link to the author's page: Oliver & Jack: On The Isle Of Dogs

I really enjoyed the first few books in the series. I haven't read the rest because I'm waiting until the series is complete. The reviews are overall positive. If you like historical fiction, Charles Dickens, and hurt/comfort then this is the story for you.

Merlin, Harry Potter, Teen Wolf, and Avengers recs

Merlin

Footloose - Loaded March
INSTANT REC!!! This is a must read for anyone in Merlin fandom. I'm glad I waited until the series finished because once I started reading I couldn't stop. I loved the military aspects, the character voices, the plot, the scope and ambition of the story isn't something you find every day.

(f5,recs-instant!rec,recs-Merlin,Pairing:Merlin/Arthur,Trope:Magic,Length:900k-3million)


Avengers

jadedace - Eihwaz
Summary: After the battle of New York, Loki was sentenced to be executed by an Aesir trial. What the god didn't expect was to wake up the morning after his private beheading in the body of a recent adversary, on a realm he had only just left...with the other person still very much alive and kicking inside. Tony is not too happy about his new headmate, and Loki is hardly thrilled over his new living arrangements. But with a new threat from the Mad Titan on Midgard's horizon, it's up to the two of them to keep the Tesseract out of hands that mean to misuse it's power.

Review: I loved the concept, character voices, and seeing Tony and Loki work together.
