ianmckellenA young Sir Ian McKellen….WHOA.  Just…WHOA.

*eleventy-million years later, finally stops staring dreamily into my computer screen, commences with this week’s TILT droolfest*

Alright kids!  This week’s been a pretty grand week as far as things to be psyched about, and I hope it’s the same for you.  Without further babbling and ado, here’s what’s making me mighty thankful this week: 

* I am thankful for Sir Ian McKellen.  If you somehow remain unconvinced, I present you with further proof of his awesomeness.

* I am thankful for the mad props that my lovely friend Anne (who set me up with this here WordPress, by the by) gave me on her blog.  Alfalfa Anne is a magical mecca for horse lovers, and collects all the very best horse imagery on the web into one sweet feed.  Alas, I can’t take credit for that pun.  Anne is also a pun master.  Pun MASTER, I tell you!

* I am thankful for the television show “Battles B.C.”   Outside, spring has sprung, morning has broken, life begins anew- yadda yadda yadda.  There are puppies and bunnies and lilac bushes and baby calves, but not even their powers of cuteness combined can tear me away from my slouched position in front of the computer, because this show is so frickin’ good.  As the name suggests, it’s all about ancient battles, and you needn’t be a war nerd like myself to enjoy it, because this show is full of unintentional hilarity and so much interesting trivia.  It’s ridiculous!  I’m so grateful to my friend for telling me about this show, I should probably give him my seventh-born child or something.  Of course, I can’t tell him that to his face, because it’ll come off as creepy and wierd, so I’ll just announce it to everyone on the entire internet, instead.

* I am thankful for exciting summer reunion plans!  My friend is making a glorious return to my neck of the woods this summer, all the way from her home court of Trinidad!! We haven’t seen each other in a few years, so I’m ridiculously excited!!  As I type this, I realize that I actually haven’t confirmed with her that I’ll be around, so I better get on that…

* I am thankful for the wonderful wedding that will happen this weekend.  My friends Adam and James are truly frickin’ magnificent, and deserve every single great thing the world has to offer!!

 So there you have it.  Short, but so sweet it’ll make your teeth ache.  What fantastic happenings and thrilling things have made the final cut in your TILT list this week?   Ponies?  Skateboards?  Haunted houses?  Haunted horses?  Spill, please!

    Hi Kate!

    I couldn’t agree more! There needs to be some sort of internationally-known “Sir Ian McKellen Appreciation Society.” Like, annual conventions and secret handshakes and spiked fruit punch…
