Busy Lois Is Busy, But Not For Long  
I'm starting to forget what having free time is. *headdesk* But the remedy for that is coming up. :D

The Ups and Downs of the Week
  • Things have been weirder than ever at the job this week, especially after one employee just walked out after a meeting with the boss. Tempers have been very short and you can literally feel the heat of anger in the store each day. Then again, that might be because they're not using the A/C, the cheapskates. :P Not a happy place, is my job.
  • We went to see Up over the weekend. I've never been so happy that Anissa talked me into going to see something. The movie was a joy from moment one. The beginning just ruined me, though. I wish I had been spoilered because romantic little me cried over and over at times throughout. And I had to convince Anissa that she couldn't take the herd of dogs home. Then we watched Wall-E the next night and I hate that I took so long to see it. The voices of EVE and Wall-E just slay me with the cute. Pixar, please never compromise the quality of your work. Everything you do is love. <3
  • Starting to track down another copy of the KCOP edit of Superman: The Movie. I used to have a copy years ago, but it got lost in one of the moves from one room to another, and I've felt the need to get another one just because I miss the deleted scenes. Yes, there is still more lost footage out there, more than we had in the Extended Edition that came out a couple of years ago. Surprisingly enough, there's still footage on both that and SII: DC that still haven't seen the light of day in any edition (although one of them turns me beet-red every time I think of it *blush*).  I think I love it as much as I do because of the little details like a scene actually showing the Native Americans living out there near the San Andreas Fault.
  • I'm slowly catching up to the F-List, just simply because staying at work after 11 and not sleeping well lately because of the heat and humidity do not a happy Lois make. If I haven't been hanging out as much and haven't replied to your comment or email, it's not that I'm not going to. It's just that I haven't gotten there yet.
  • After a bumpy few moments since February's last break to meet Ms. Kidder, Lois is finally going to take a four-day break to go to Orlando and stay at the Hyatt Regency to recharge her batteries from the 13th to the 17th. I have no plans for the trip but to sleep late, rest, and write. The money is going to be tight because of this, but I need the break. I timed it just right, too, since I put in for it just before they announced a huge bridal event on 14th that would have made my nine hour shift likely go on for eleven. On a Sunday. I would have hung myself in the back of Harmon. Period.
  • I am so damn excited for everyone to see this week's chapter. This has been literally YEARS in the making and we can't wait to get into the meat of this story now. The excitement over here at KLK headquarters (*LOL*) has been building for months. And we're just getting started. I really hope all of you readers enjoy the ride.  I'm also talking to januaried  about putting out the fanmix to this Act out early, before it's over, so you can listen in concert to the writing. Although no liner-notes because I don't want to spoil everyone.
  • I'm fighting with the WMM again, trying to see if I can make another video. I can't wait until I can get the new computer and Sony Vega. I so dream of making a video that I can be absolutely happy with. *pokes WMM in irritation*
  • I am SOOOOOO sleeping late tomorrow. Period. *makes face*
  • I need to catch up on the Clark meme. I just keep being pushed back every time I get caught up.

There's the easy answer. I'm fine with it, otherwise, but that last line just kills me.
dj_intheuk: Supermandj_intheuk on June 7th, 2009 12:22 am (UTC)
oh that is HOT. *fans self*
Lois: LS :: Clois :: Sexykalalanekent on June 7th, 2009 12:26 am (UTC)
Oh, it DEFINITELY is. I just hate the damn 'Superman'. *headdesk* Kal-El, dammit! Kal-El! You know what the frikkin' name is! USE IT!

*blushes madly* This scene really drives my Lois muse up the wall. XD
dj_intheuk: Supermandj_intheuk on June 7th, 2009 12:42 am (UTC)
*giggles* heck in the moment I don't know what name I'd use - maybe all three ;) heh I wish ;)
Lois: Lois :: Facepalmkalalanekent on June 7th, 2009 12:52 am (UTC)
Well, I think we've proven the one my Lois prefers. XD Then again, it proves that the two of them being sizzling is canon...

...does you have any idea how weird it is to have a character snicker in your head? *is worried*
dj_intheuk: Superman Symboldj_intheuk on June 7th, 2009 12:56 am (UTC)
I think its canon besides you just reminded me of the fact that is Superman IV Lois calls Superman, Kal-El on the balcony after the Clark-jumps-off-balcony-with-Lois-turns-into-Superman scene.

Lois: Kal-El :: The Missionkalalanekent on June 7th, 2009 01:52 pm (UTC)
I SO adore that scene. The majority of that movie is a mess, but the scenes with Margot and Chris are just love. Even when I want to kill him for trying the 'amnesia kiss ' again, when it obviously didn't work well the first time. But when she calls him 'Kal-El', it's just a mega-squee moment for me. :D
dj_intheuk: Christopher Reevedj_intheuk on June 7th, 2009 03:21 pm (UTC)
'Never love one person above the rest... It just isn't fair." is actually one of my favourite lines of dialogue even though its Superman IV we're talking about! Although it was a bad idea to get Superman involved in politics and the nuclear arms race - I do still love Reeve's performance of the UN speech - its just totally 100% Superman-ish. I love the scenes where Clark stands up for what is right at the Daily Planet and Reeve as Clark Kent without the glasses - kills me. Pathetic I know.
Lois: Lois :: Wistfulkalalanekent on June 9th, 2009 05:52 pm (UTC)
OMG, that line is such a killer. I think I still swoon every time, even if I know he's going to do something stupid afterwards.

There are SO many sections of SIV that I really don't like, but all of Chris and Margot's scene together are top-knotch and Chris never gives a bad performance as Superman. Period.

And not pathetic at all, where I'm concerned. I mean, look at him! GAH!
dj_intheuk: Superman IIdj_intheuk on June 9th, 2009 09:56 pm (UTC)
I know its corny but I love the 'double date' stuff - entirely down to Reeve's performance - the contrast between Clark's goofing around and Superman's charm:

Lois: (advice to Clark with Lacey) Notice the dress.
Clark: Oh hey, er neat dress.

Lois (to Superman) Oh, and this is Lacey.
Superman: Hi. That's a very beautiful dress your wearing.

Chris looks like he has a *lot* of fun with switching between those roles and he's the only actor to date I think who has made it plausible that no one would think Clark and Superman are the same person. This skill is what made me search for more of his acting roles :)
Lois: Kal-El :: The Missionkalalanekent on June 15th, 2009 04:44 pm (UTC)
Hee's adorable in the 'double-date' scene, but my inner Lois just wants to kick his butt the whole time. At least he's actually spending time with Lois. :P

But Chris really does seem to love the differences between them. Another good example of that is the Superman vs. Clark Kent scene in SIII, one of the only good parts of the whole.
