30 Days Of Llama – Day 2

Day 02 — Your favorite movie

Star Wars.

That seems a bit of a short answer though, doesn’t it?

Star Wars is one of the first films I remember watching. I clearly recall sitting in my parents living room watching the medal ceremony on Yavin IV. I remember playing Star Wars in the playground and loving the fact that being the girl still meant I got to be awesome and help save the day. I remember getting to see the trilogy on the big screen when the remastered came out.. and just seeing that scroll and hearing that music actually reduced me to tears. I still get moved with fannish glee every time.

I even like the prequel trilogy. Never got the memo that I wasn’t supposed to.

Other top movie loves include Jurassic Park, Stigmata, Empire Records, Velvet Goldmine, Resident Evil, MCU, Stargate, the SG1 movies, Notting Hill, Mission Impossible, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers.

I have serious love for really bad horror/sci-fi movies. SyFy movies. Things like Sharknado, Voodoo Academy, Mega Snake, Boa Vs Python, Iron Invader, Ferocious Planet, Arctic Blast, Lost Treasures Of The Grand Canyon…

I also have a soft spot for – and I can’t believe I’m going to admit this outloud – but Hallmark movies. Murder She Baked, Garage Sale Mystery, Wedding Bells, Irresistible Bluberry Farm, The Bouquet, Growin The Big One…

And yes, I’m aware my taste in movies sucks but I enjoy them damnit!

100 Things That Make Me Happy

As part of my 101 Things In 1001 Days I set out to write a list of 100 Things That Make Me Happy.

It took me something like 2 months to compile the list and I was mindful to try to make sure it wasn’t just fandom related – that it was very well-rounded and covered a variety of things that I enjoy.

If I’m honest, It was actually a lot harder to do than anticipated. I don’t know if that’s just because of how down I’ve been over the last 6 months or so. At the same time, though, writing it and re-reading it has been a pretty good form of therapy. Reminding me of little things that make me smile – and nudging me to go and do some of them.

Anything than involves happiness is never a bad thing, right?

So here is 100 things that make Cassie happy
1. Going to bed and knowing I don’t have an alarm set in the morning
2. Having a hot bath, putting on warm & clean pjs and getting into a freshly made bed with clean bedding
3. Getting a forward-facing window seat with a table on the train to work
4. Getting any seat on the train home from work
5. My Natalie
