“Yes, I have a lot of action, I have a lot of fantasy, I have a lot of sci-fi on my résumé, which is great fun. But it’s all circumstantial in a way. I just find myself playing impossibly cool people, and some of them have guns and some of them have lasers, some of them have swords, and some of them have stilettos. I’ve been fortunate enough to play impossibly wonderful people who are also impossibly flawed…That’s what makes people interesting.”
“Do I get stress headaches at work? Yes, definitely. From the moment I get in, it’s “Denise we need this! Denise we need that!” Which is stressful… ‘cause my name is Linda. Denise is the other black woman that works here. By 10am, someone in the copy room makes a joke about Kobe Bryant, and everyone looks at me to make sure it’s ok. And I smile like it’s ok. But really, my head and neck are starting to throb. Then I spend the rest of my afternoon training my interns, and answering their questions, like, “Yes, black people use shampoo”, and, “No, I don’t know any good reggae clubs around here”, and, “Yes, Condoleezza Rice is very articulate, why do you sound so surprised?” And, “No, I can’t tell you where to buy weed!” And that’s when I reach for Excedrin.”
Jennifer. Fangirl. Mother. Military wife. I like a lot of stuff: Supernatural, The Avengers, Marvel, Star Trek, Tom Hiddleston, gorgeous people... In other words, I am a multi-fandom blog. If I like it it'll end up on here. Fair warning.Occasionally I even throw in some real life stuff. And cats.
