[from good stuff happened today]

on the other hand…

Saturday, June 30th, 2012

Sorry, back to Spiderman. 1. The 1994 Spiderman cartoon was my first real cartoon show that I watched. (I was not in the target demographic of 8-10 year olds, but let’s ignore that.) 2. I think it’s fair that Andrew Garfield’s hair gets a movie. 3. I’m not even sure what’s considered “canon” for Marvel […]

why I shouldn’t care about the Spiderman movie

Friday, June 29th, 2012

1. I’m terrified of spiders. Freak out even when they’re tiny and far away from me. 2. I don’t like heights. I didn’t even like the parts in “Up” when they were on the dirigible-thing. 3. I don’t like high school movies. (As a corollary, I think it’s dumb to cast a 28-year old as […]

fic rec o’ the day

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

Thanks to a story I may or may not be writing(*) (so far it is 99% procrastination, 1% actual text), I’ve been reading a lot of Losers fanfic. I liked this one: Email Archive #300-08-B, by katemonkey Set during the movie — emails between Jake and his sister. (Which was totally against Clay’s rules, but […]

sometimes I think “they pay me for this?”

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

Granted, the thought doesn’t come as often as it used to, because being the recess monitor is harder than I’d like. But yesterday a guy came into the store and was all, ‘Hey, do you have any empty boxes I could have?’ And we did, except we’d just taken them all out to the recycling […]

movie review: This Means War

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

Here’s my conceptual confusion about this movie: all of the people who work for this spy organization (granted, I can only say this for sure about the ones we see *doing* anything) should be fired. All of them. Terrible at justice, or whatever it is they’re supposed to be spying for. And then there’s my […]

not obligatory, just fun

Yesterday, my hair was like this: ((((((()))))) (That’s how I could tell it was super humid. Also, my extreme inability to do anything that required effort was a clue.) Today, my hair has mellowed to this: ~~(~~(~~)~~)~~ (It must be less humid today! Also, it’s possible that I need a haircut.)

obligatory weather post

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

I believe the technical weather term for our current status is “brain meltingly hot.” Which is not to say I’m longing for winter, or anything. No way. More like it’s hard to see the benefits of doing anything except lounging in front of a fan, icy cold beverage close at hand. (I keep reminding myself […]

fic recs!

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

I’ve already seen them recced elsewhere, but hey, it’s always good to share the love! bedrock and brick, by lyra_wing Tony, rebuilding Stark Tower as Avengers Tower, and stealth!bonding with his team. “Stark, what the hell are you doing with the Avengers.” Fury had a way of talking that made questions into statements, even though […]
