Mom's Stargazer lilies are blooming. They're my favorite.

The cleomes are up, too!

Suddenly, wild blackberries appear!

A little Black Widow bobblehead joined my Hawkeye display. Hawkeye bobblehead is pleased!

Finally, some of the Shelf Avengers got together to celebrate the Fourth of July and Captain America's birthday with a little barbecue!

Didn't do much over the holiday weekend, just a cookout with Mom, Dad, Katie, and Paul. Nice little get-together. Some neighbors set off fireworks, though, and terrified the poor cat.

He's so cuddly!

There's a whole bunch of these from Age of Ultron. I've put Black Widow, Captain America, and Vision on my amazon wishlist. :p

I got two goodies in the mail today- the mini Funko Hawkeye bobblehead, and the S.H.I.E.L.D. set with Coulson, Hill, and Fury.

Hawkeye and Black Widow are very happy to see Phil alive!

Rage of Ultron was a good read. One massive change for Hank Pym that I have no idea how it will fit into continuity, but it's very interesting. Also, Starfox! He's pretty important to the story. I hope this means we'll see more of him. According to the editor, this takes place after all the Secret Wars and Battleworld stuff that's happening this summer.

OMG OMG OMG. Someone leaked it, and then Marvel went ahead and released it for real. It looks awesome. I haven't been this excited for a sequel since The Return of the King!

The Shelf Avengers and Nick Fury react to the trailer.

Poor Dane.

My mom actually did the ALS ice bucket challenge today, and also made a donation.

ETA: I spelled challenge wrong in the picture. Ugh.
mollybarton: (pete wisdom 1)
Oh, Dane. You really need to watch what you say around the other guys- some of them think they're still twelve.

Meanwhile, I ordered this nail polish for myself. It's a cool glittery black...and it's called The Black Knight. Hee! (that's NOT why I bought it.)

Nick Fury reads his favorite bedtime story to them.

I got a Black Knight figure! So I decided to have him re-enact a scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail with Captain Britain as King Arthur. 'Cause, you know, the crazy knight is also called the Black Knight...

Bonus- Lockheed won't bother Pete anymore...he has new friends to play with, little Clint and little Tasha!

Coulson has arrived! Clint and Tasha are very happy to see him!

And a comics squee- the preview for Nightcrawler #2. BABY KURT. OMG look at his itty bitty tail!

The Funko Pop! Black Widow. She fits in nicely with my other Black Widow and Hawkeye figures.

Having no luck whatsoever in finding the Winter Soldier six inch Black Widow figure. :( But I do have the Funko Pop! Coulson coming soon!

Hawkeye thought it would be funny to welcome Captain Britain with something from home..."CLINT!" "What?" Meanwhile, Brian runs for his life! "AAAAAHHHHHHHH!" "EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!"

 photo welcome1_zps2fc65877.jpg

After the Dalek is sent away, Steve shows everyone the proper way to welcome a new team member. "Tea, Captain?" "Delightful idea, Captain!"

 photo welcome3_zps1f6ef5e3.jpg

Clint would rather have a beer. But Brian is happy now! "Cheers!"

Captain America has invited Captain Britain to join the Shelf Avengers. (LOL. That's just where I keep my figures) And Steve has put Brian in charge, much to Clint's horror.

 photo capbritjoinsin3_zpsc7928c4b.jpg

"You again, Braddock?" "Don't make me hit you with Excalibur, Hawkeye. And what was that you said about the Queen?"

Steve and Brian catch up on mutual friends and so on. Brian informs Steve that Pete Wisdom is indeed still a tosser, but at least he's quit smoking and doesn't drink as much and has NEVER gotten over Kitty Pryde. Dork!

Also, baseball is back! And Hello Kitty is a Nats fan.

 photo natskitty_zps092b602b.jpg

Nats beat the Mets in their season opener. Well, if someone has to beat the Mets, I'm glad it's the Nats!

Sad Hawkeye has been made into a doll!

 photo sadclintdoll2_zps486b9511.jpg

Also, Clint has a new rival. I've ordered several Excalibur comic book collections, and one came today. Clint is furious with me. "Don't you remember my commandment? Thou shalt not read other comics than Hawkeye!" Sorry, Clint. Pete Wisdom and Captain Britain (called Britannic in this collection) were calling to me. And Pete says, "Sod off, ya circus freak!"

 photo jealousclint_zps184f2b7d.jpg

I'd love to see those two interact in a future comic. Hawkeye's work with Captain Britain in Secret Avengers was amusing to say the least. (Hawkeye: "I hate you, Captain Britain! Because of you, I hate everything about Britain. Tea, The Smiths, the Queen..." Cap: "Let's leave The Smiths out of this.")

Also, the first photos from the filming of Avengers: Age of Ultron are leaking...Hawkeye has a new outfit. It's like a modern version of Hawkeye's old uniform...just not bright purple and no mask.

 photo newhawkcostume_zps3b8e3848.jpg

The downside is it covers up Jeremy Renner's awesome arms.

My Mini Muggs Hawkeye now has a baby brother, Micro Muggs Hawkeye!

I've been watching most of the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoons...and I came upon this lovely scene. Wasp and Hawkeye lounging by the pool. Hubba hubba. Love the farmer's tan, Clint!

 photo emhcap1_zpsb3cf8664.jpg

LOL. Fanservice on a kid's show! Of course, the comic books are far racier...

Another reason I enjoy the cartoon- Hulk and Hawkeye's odd friendship.

I've been watching (via amazon) Marvel's Avengers Assemble from Disney. It's FUNNY. I know Earth's Mightiest Heroes was better, but the new series has charms. I love Hawkeye and Hulk. On Sunday's episode, Hulk ate all of Hawkeye's pickles, and started a grudge match that landed them in an alien death match. Better than it sounds. Don't eat Hawkeye's food. He will attack something you like! In another episode, everyone except Black Widow got Hulk-ified, and an extremely hungry Clint was enraged by the disappearance of his beloved pizza bagels. (Captain America ate them all!)

So, inspired by "Mojo World", here is Clint defending the pickles from Hulk.

The grand unveiling of Aw, Bro- the cross stitched picture Clint would rather forget. His pals are amused, but Steve is horrified! Tasha tries to console poor embarrassed Clint.

Thor and Loki Bobblehead dolls have joined my Avengers shelf. The rest of the toys aren't sure what to make of them yet.

Saw Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on Sunday, saw Anchorman 2 today, and will see American Hustle tomorrow. I liked Hobbit- it was a little bit too long and had some unnecessary added stuff, but it was better than part one. And Smaug was awesome. I love Benedict Cumberbatch's voice. Anchorman 2 was fun, with some great cameos at the end, but I really preferred the first one. This one isn't as quotable as the first, and there were a few cringe inducing scenes. But there were still plenty of scenes to make me choke on my soda from laughing so hard!

I had help finishing the gift wrapping from Clint, Tasha, Thor, and Sif.

The Avengers go for a sleigh ride, courtesy of Loki and his giant horse (it's actually Aragorn's horse from Fellowship of the Ring).
