more thoughts on Dawn of Justice

Thursday, March 31st, 2016

Who was Jack? Why didn’t he evacuate the building long before getting a phone call to do so? Why didn’t he *ever* evacuate the building himself? If Bruce had the resources to get himself into Metropolis in the middle of an alien battle, did he have a responsibility to use those resources to assist? See […]

movie review: Dawn of Justice

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

So I saw ‘Batman vs Superman: This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things’ this weekend. And you know what I would have liked to see? The Wonder Woman cut of this movie. Two hours and 33 minutes of Diana Prince doing whatever it was she was doing the whole time. A travel montage — […]

random thoughts Tuesday

Is anyone else weirded out by those ‘OXO: Tested on Humans’ radio ads? Look at all those peelers, graters, and mashers — tested on humans! Yikes. Maybe it’s the Hannibal fandom that gives all comments like that a horribly creepy connotation. (There is a sign at work that says ‘Friends and Coffee: the perfect combination,’ […]

memorable search Monday

Monday, March 28th, 2016

Monday: “cat wants to sit in my lap in the bathroom” (it turns out all the articles about this essentially say we have no idea why cats are the way they are) Tuesday: “why the results delay on March 22 primaries” (yeah, so there’s that) Wednesday: “what color is leia’s lightsaber” (quick answer is she’s […]

“Easter Bunny, hop hop”

(From ‘Rise of the Guardians,’ not to be confused with any of the other movies with similar names.) Happy Easter!

Just one of those days when it’s still only 32F degrees, but it looks and sounds like spring anyway!

fic rec Friday

Blood Is Thicker Than Carpet Cleaner, by Alexicon The AU where Steve accidentally hires an assassin to clean his apartment. *** “Right,” Bucky agreed. “Those stains look hard to get out.” “They are,” said Steve, “which is why I hired a cleaning service.” “Oh,” Bucky replied, nodding, then, “Oh! A cleaning service. That’s me. *I’m* […]

movie rewatch: Star Trek Into Darkness

Thursday, March 24th, 2016

But can you imagine if we’d gotten two hours of Kirk, Spock, and Uhura pretending to be space pirates, with Captain Sulu “chasing” them in the Enterprise, and McCoy as the grumpy go-between? Pike could have done his whole ‘we’re taking the Enterprise away from you’ speech, but it would turn out later that it […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

It’s survey time at work! Several times a year, we send out a survey asking how we’re doing. I’m not entirely sure why, as the answers are always basically the same — numerous variations on “fine,” and then some variation of the following “suggestions” for improvement: 1. when I call with a problem that’s my […]

not exactly DIY

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

Over the weekend, I decided it was time to tackle two pesky and simple projects that I’ve been meaning to get to. First: replace a burned out lightbulb in one of the kitchen lights. Second: it took me forever to realize that one of my shower curtain rings was only looped through the inside liner […]
