Her response: "Haha, that's funny. Isn't he like, 40 now?"
(No, actually he's 34. So much for not feeling like I'm getting too old for these young whippersnappers today! *laughing shrug*)
...you MUST read this link. Now. No, not later, I mean right now. It goes into glorious detail about the shitty new Miller/Lee Batman and Robin All Star Series (i.e., the series that brought you the infamous "I'm the Goddamn Batman" quote). I only own the first two issues and stopped because honestly, they sucked. But read this because I haven't laughed so hard at an article in a long time.
Four Words: Dick Grayson: Age Twelve.
Seriously, check it out.UPDATE: Here's the follow up link for the next few issues. Seriously awful garbage. I think Miller HAS to be doing this as a great FU to the fans, to DC, to whomever, because I KNOW he has to know that this is utter garbage.
they havent fully played out the stranded scorpion storyline.
Naw hoss, i'll be good. promise.
What the eff-ever man. fine be a bitch. hop on
LOLZ Amazing. Simply amazing.
In other news, I changed my email to my yahoo account. For those of you who have responded to any of my LJ comments or posts and I have not gotten back to you, forgive me; I have no idea how long this has been going on but I promise I'll get to your comments.
RIP, Luciano. The heavenly choir is now a thousand times sweeter.
Luckily the wacky Gchat hijinx of Ben and I never fail to deliver:
Ben: i'm debating which is winning, my lethargic inability to walk to the kitchen, or my need to wake up.
me: lol probably the lethargy
Ben: evil lethargy! sounds like a bond villian to me. I am Lord Lethargy!
me: Put him up against Dr. No and NOTHING gets accomplished!
Ben: lol 2 points
I had a damn hard time getting to sleep last night. Perhaps I can blame it on the O'Neill I was reading. As magnificent as it is, Long Day's Journey into Night isn't exactly made of lullabyes and comfort. It made me miss college; Fall at UVA was always one of the best and most beautiful times of my life. It made me miss my Puff, who always kept me company on my lap while I was reading plays or novels or poetry. It made me miss a lot of things.
Well, I'm sure the headache I had most of yesterday didn't help either. My eyes are getting worse and its probably from peering at the screen all day with shoddy lenses. Blargh.
Maybe I'll sketch some tonight with some tea. Have some fun getting messy with charcoal. Hmmm.
RennFest is coming up very soon! I can't wait to squeeze myself back into my Renfest outfit! WOOHOO! Maybe I'll attend Pirate singalong night! Or Celtic music night...OH awesomeness.
I wish I could scoop up my flist and drag them along to Renfest!! =^)
Update: These look like the absolute shit. Holy crap, I could be like Geordi...but instead I could be watching House or Heroes!!
Well, I haven't had too much to post about of late, since work has been crazy boring. I suppose that's not necessarily a bad thing, considering it allows me to engage in a improv'd Text-based Adventure via Gchat with my buddy Ben.
Ben: find a way to defend yourself.
me: Hit souls with oars.
Ben: no effect.
Me: Ask lesbian for help.
Ben:lesbian has found a new life partner, francesca de rimini.no help to be given.
me: Oh give me a friggen break.
Ben: you have nothing in the boat but your oars and your inventory (so: jewel. holy water. mirror. rubber chicken. rapier.).
me: Use rubber chicken.
little did you know that charon inspired fear with his terrible sense of humor. Confusing you, wearing your holocaust cloak, for charon, the souls take the chicken and flee
Ben: do you wish to proceed across the styx or head back to the shore you departed?
me: Proceed across.
So, yes, that's my day so far. =^) So far I've defeated Cerberus, and am now face to face with Satan. Good times.
Hmmm, I hope to do a picspam posting soon of me, my new katana, my Sephy drawings, and anything else of note. Any pictures of me or my life that you all want to see (keep it PG-13 rated please, peoples! ;^))? Request away and I'll try to oblige!
I'm also starting to think about what to do for Halloween. It'll be geeky, to be sure. I thought this morning about going as a Slytherin student (hell, the dark hair and the pale skin practically sorts me there anyway! ;^). There's always something from anime, Marvel, DC, or other geekdom. Suggestions, oh my sexy cosplayer friends?
Storm and Steve Shadow.
Tifa's a bit naive...
For the Shire!!!
"Awww yeah, that's some good evil right there." (My personal favorite)
And last, but certainly not least...
I'm sure I'll have something of greater substance to post later, but until then, this shit is ba-na-nas!!
So, gentle reader, I'm sure you can tell when I'm having a quiet day at the office; usually it means I'm on here posting like a maniac.
Well, to make up for possibly double and triple posting in the past, I bring teh lulz (courtesy of Cracked.com).
8 Important Lessons Learned from 80's Cartoons. A must read. Best line in the whole thing? It's not even a whole line: "Skeletor and his fugly cohorts...." Fantastic.
The 8 Strangest Communities on the Web. The picture at the top of the article says it all.
Top 5 Worst Lines of Dialogue (from Movies that Didn't Actually Suck.
Last, but not least, no lulz, but a return (and much earlier than I expected). Not sure how I feel about this one, really. Shit, they kept poor Colossus dead for 5 years! WTF!
Holy Anal Leakage, Batman!!!

LOLZ!!! I think number one is the best; it certainly had me gigglin' like a 3rd grader. Number 8 also makes me smile. I may use that line when I go to Atlantic City this weekend for my friends bachelorette party. ;^) And...just because I want to scream "FAT PENGUIN!!!" in a crowded room!
