Walk to the sound of my own drum

I don't know why I waste time writing meta, it never seems worth the effort, but I wrote a thing on Tumblr about Bucky and blinking and how it's yet another physical indicator of his internal thought processes in the bank vault scene of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. If you're inclined to read that sort of thing, as Mr. Sam Wilson might say. I knew that minor in speech communication would be useful someday, too bad it's just for a Tumblr post. I always feel like I'm talking into a void, both because few people are journaling these days and nothing ever really goes anywhere on Tumblr, and yet I continue to do it.

Speaking of Sam Wilson, I hear his birthday is the 23rd. I'm writing a sam hill story (Sam/Maria), I think, in honor of that, but I'm floundering past the initial premise of him asking her out. If you have any prompts you'd be interested in, let me know. I can't promise I'll use it, but I might!

The repairs on the south wall of my house are done. It looks like a new house if you only look at that wall. So that was thousands and thousands of dollars I hadn't planned on spending. Yay. I wish so much that that was money I could have used to help people, it seems a lot of people I know are going through really rough times, and I would so much rather have spent it on them. But when it's completely rotten and falling apart, you can't keep ignoring it the way I have for the past few years.

And that's the only updating I have.

:waves from across the desolate internet:

(Before it gets dark I have to hose out Shine's bed since tonight was apparently *her* turn for making a mess in her crate.)

Oh god, was it terrible? I hope not.

I had some bad news today--one of my foster dogs, who was adopted by my neighbors so I got to see him from time to time, and he was the most adorable Yorkie ever, died. I knew he was older, but...he was so happy, and so loved, and being cared for so well, that it was a sad shock. It's so rare, though, that I ever know what happens to them afterward, so I at least had that to hold on to.

Loved that post about the blinking. I wouldn't put it past Sebastian Stan to have researched that himself. And yay that the house wall is done!

Someone reblogged it with a snide little comment about lol of course it wasn't on purpose, and I just thought, well, hey, asshole, guess what? They teach that kind of stuff in acting classes. They don't necessarily cite studies and talk about blinking rates indicating internal states, but they do teach body language stuff, and how to show emotional turmoil in your face, and all kinds of stuff like that. And I think about what Sebastian said about reading that scene as him being like a person with Alzheimer's, and yeah, I wouldn't put it past Sebastian to have done that at all. He's an exceptionally good face actor, one of those actors who has hundreds of little microexpressions, and he seems to be very much in control of his facial movements when he's acting. Every time I watch that movie, I admire him more and more. He inhabited that role so completely that I think the blinking stuff is largely a response *from* him, as that character.

In conclusion, Sebastian fucking Stan. Kid is really really good.
