May the 4th Be with You

HAPPY STAR WARS DAY!!

My sister and I saw The Internship the other day, and we spotted her desk organizer, Chip the Desk-Bot, sharing the screen with none other than Mr. Dylan O’Brien. Hers is on the right:

What does that have to do with Star Wars day? Well, apparently, Dylan O’Brien’s dream role is Han Solo. And Chip’s is Chewy. My sis knows these things. So I decided to do some (very rough) photo manip to make that happen because: (1) it’s Star Wars day, (2) the world needs more Dylan O’Brien and Chip the Desk-Bot, and (3) I like making dreams come true.

So without further ado, I present Dylan and Chip’s Star Wars photobomb:

That’s enough nonsense from me. May the 4th be with you.

Always.

Teen Werewolves Invade My Disney Vacation

You may have noticed my blog has been pretty neglected the past few weeks. Or maybe you haven’t noticed because you’ve been just as busy watching Teen Wolf as I have.

For those of you who don’t know, Teen Wolf is a teen paranormal drama on MTV. It’s loosely based on an 80s movie I’ve never seen… and it’s kind of been running my life for the last few weeks.

It all started about two months ago, when I wanted to do something nice for my sister. Teen Wolf didn’t really look like my thing. I don’t like horror/gore. I’m not huge on romance. But my sister loves Warm Bodies, City of Bones, etc. Teen Wolf seemed somewhere in that zone, so out of the goodness of my heart I endeavored to introduce her to her new favorite TV show.

After the first episode, I thought, “Huh. That was actually pretty good.” Three episodes in, I wondered, “How many seasons of this have they made??” By the fifth episode, I was hurling things at my computer screaming, “STUPID GEICO COMMERCIAL! STOP INTERRUPTING MY SHOW! I WILL NEVER BUY YOUR INSURANCE!! NEVER EVER EVER EV– ooh! Stiles is back.”

So in the end my sister ended up introducing me to my new favorite show. She even bought me the first season for an early Valentine’s gift. My parents followed it up with the best birthday gifts ever – Season 2 and Season 3 Part 1!

Basically, my family is the best.

I’ve been racing to catch up before the finale, and now I’m sort of seeing Teen Wolf everywhere. Even at the Happiest Place on Earth. To prove it, I snapped some pictures.

On Toy Story Mania, my sis and I ended up in Stiles’ car!

On Haunted Mansion, we spotted birds like the ones that attacked Ms. Blake’s classroom. You know, when Stiles shielded Lydia with his body? And anti-romantic me actually uttered an, “Aww!”

As we exited Haunted Mansion I snapped a pic of this awesome window, which reminded me of the gates at Eichen House and (*sobs internally*) Oak Creek:

In Liberty Square, I advised my sis to be her own anchor:

As we passed the London section on Small World, my sister whispered to me, “Wave hi to Jackson.” I’ve never been prouder. 😉

I got a little choked up by Small World’s wall of goodbyes.

goodbye

Because we’ve already said goodbye to [spoiler] and with the finale looming I’m sure we’ll soon be bidding at least one other person adieu.

But that’s a downer, so on to Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival, where my sister caught me making advances on this shrub. Why? Because Bambi is our nickname for Isaac. No offense intended. We love Isaac. But he’s got those big innocent Bambi eyes. Observe:

I’m even seeing Teen Wolf at work. I was tempted to scrawl “De-” on the front of this Void stamp (I resisted):

When the vending machine ate my money, I came *this close* to employing the patented Stiles (or Boyd) method of snack extraction:

Even the Veronica Mars movie, which I’ve been looking forward to FOREVER, couldn’t escape a Teen Wolf comparison. It’s their own fault, really, for opening with a case wall crisscrossed with red yarn just like the one Stiles has. All I could picture was this…

Lydia

…and imagine that after a quick chat with the yarn Lydia could’ve solved the murder in time to go ice skating with Stiles, Scott, and Allison. (Again, no hate intended. I ❤ Veronica)

So there it is. My name is Jayme and I have a Teen Wolf problem.

The problem is that it’s only Sunday… and the finale isn’t until Monday. 😉

How about you guys? What’s your secret (or not so secret) TV obsession? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
