And guess what I've done for my big golden birthday?!
Clean the kitchen, made some fabulous brownies, help make washing machine balls (while watching Season 3 of Merlin with my sisters), and have nearly sprained my ankle running up the stairs during my babysitting job tonight. Actually, I'm still babysitting, but the kids are in bed now : )
Because my b-day came slap bang in the middle of Christmas season for our soap business, finding time to celebrate would have been an impossibility! Yet, my parents did buy me a variety cheesecake platter yesterday and I went out to lunch with some friends on Wednesday and my sister took me to see Thor: The Dark World (yes, I will get a review up soon as well as the first movie) last Saturday, which I LOVED!
So all in all, it's been a good day (except for the fact it was 1D Day-8 hrs. of live streaming from One Direction for charity-and I haven't been able to see any of it!!!), but in the last 5-10 minutes it became explosive when I came across this news!
There is going to be a new Narnia movie!!!
I found out the news from Narnia Web:

Production Company Announced for The Silver Chair
This morning the official Narnia Twitter and Facebook accounts announced that the Mark Gordon Company will produce the next the next Narnia movie: The Silver Chair.
No release date has been set and there’s also no word whether Walden Media will be involved in this production. If Walden is not involved, it is likely that Silver Chair would not be released until 2018. That said, it’s not unrealistic to start planning for a new movie four years before the release date. This announcement may be an attempt to gauge fan interest in a fourth movie.
Mark Gordon is an American television and film producer and also the president of the Producers Guild of America. He has produced a number of films and tv shows including Saving Private Ryan, Speed, The Day After Tomorrow, 10,000 B.C., Grey’s Anatomy, and 2012. You can see his full list of credits at this Wikipedia page.
UPDATE: ComingSoon.net has posted a story about the announcement along with some quotes. Vincent Sieber, the LA based Director of The C.S. Lewis Company said: ”We are very excited by this partnership and to be able to work on this movie from its earliest conception on such a collaborative basis. It gives us the opportunity to develop a script and then produce a film with some of the most talented industry professionals whilst remaining completely faithful to this much loved book.”
Mark Gordon stated, “Like many readers, both young and old, I am a huge fan of C.S. Lewis’s beautiful and allegorical world of Narnia. These fantasy stories inspire real-world passion among millions of devoted fans around the world. As we prepare to bring the next book to life, we are humbled and excited to contribute to the outstanding legacy of Narnia.”
How could my best friend, who is a bigger Narnia geek than me, not have known about this??
I'm so, so, so excited though!
This guy kind of sums all of my feels right here
Yes Loki, for once I actually think you and I agree on something : )

Oh yeah, before I sign off, I thought I would cyberblog celebrate my birthday with
One Direction's beautiful music video of their new single "Story of Life"
which I love!
Although, I had to listen to the song about 50 times before I finally understood the its correlation to the music video itself...
Both of these look absolutely amazing! To be honest, I'm mostly excited for X-Men, seeing as that was the first comic book fandom I got into then followed by Batman. Captain America looks like it's going to take an interesting look into S.H.I.E.L.D and see what it's really becoming and that is going to be great to watch, maybe becoming more political than just superheros in action.
Nothing beats a haunted moonlit night on All Hallows Eve.... And on this fatal night, at this witching time, the starless sky laments black and unmoving. The somber hues of an ominous, dark forest are suddenly illuminated under the emerging face of the full moon.
