Oops! I almost forgot to say...

...that I have a newborn niece, as of about 5:00 AM this past Saturday. Sorry, it was kind of a strange weekend and I wasn't online much. Then the news broke on Facebook when my dad posted pics, and some of you got the news there. And in all that, I somehow forgot I still hadn't announced on LJ.

So yes, I'm an aunt for the second time, and now in addition to my nephew, there's also an adorable tiny lady that I can and will do my utmost to outfit with every cute purple thing I can find. :D

In other news, I saw Wolverine last Friday night. I thought the movie was good overall but was a bit disappointed in Gambit. The Gambit in my mind is more suave, more rugged, and a bit older* than Taylor Kitsch. Ah well.

*I know, my complaint that he's too young can be explained by the fact that it's a prequel. Also, Rogue is too young compared to the comics as well, so maybe if they pair them up in future movies WHICH THEY SHOULD, it would balance out better. So I'm more forgiving on that, BUT it does sort of add to the general impression that "that's not my Gambit".

I guess like you say his youth can be explained by it being a prequel.

But.. I agree, I too thought, "this is Gambit?" :/

Also he should've sounded more French, mais oui.

And YES! Future xmen movie should couple Rogue and Gambit!!

I hear they're thinking of making a Magneto prequel next.

First and most importantly, CONGRATS! Purple??? She's a girl its supposed to be pink 8P

secondly, I kind of know what you mean about Gambit, not to mention, his accent was horrible... I mean Dennis Quaid's was bad in the Big Easy but it was far better than this guys... ah well, Wolvie was ok, not as bad as I thought it would be, though I'm not happy with the whole, abandoning of the comic cannon and all. 87 million for the weekend, you know what that means, SEQUEL.

Oh, she'll have plenty of pink stuff, too. And red. And everything else cute and girly. But I'm really into purple, so that's what I look forward to seeing her dressed up in the most. :D

IMO Cajun accents are really hard to get right, so I figured going into it that we probably wouldn't get a good Cajun accent. So I wasn't that disappointed about that per se; it did add to the overall impression that "that's not my Gambit", though.

Congratulations on the new niece! I have a niece, and now a grand-niece, so that's very nice. :3
