I spent my lunch break making a list of qualities I’d want in a girlfriend. So apparently, romance is a thing I’m ready for again.
Felt kind of silly, though. I kept thinking of those kids at the beginning of ‘Mary Poppins’ making an ad for their perfect nanny. Oh well: knowing what you want makes it easier to find.
My love life’s in a frustrating state. It’s not just those moments late at night where I really miss a good cuddle or a good makeout or a good what-have-you. It’s the fact that, for just about the rest of the time, I feel the complete opposite: enjoying my alone time, not needing the whole relationship racket, and just enjoying a fulfilling platonic cadre. I don’t know if I’m emotionally jagged or just in intense denial.
I’m half-convinced that Justice League 3000 is based on Keith Giffen’s conflicted feelings over the New 52: imperfect recreations of classic characters who are still finding their own identities, a way for characters to die and resurrect perhaps indefinitely, a major creator conflicted over the whole procedure, an organization overtaken by corrupt forces… Is JL3K the most subversive comic currently published?
One week ago, I saw this gate in Universal Studios Orlando and could have sworn I’d seen the movie it came from. Only today did I realize which movie (and shame on me for not realizing sooner): perhaps my favorite W.C. Fields movie, Never Give a Sucker an Even Break. So sorry I didn’t get my own picture with it! (This picture from Foursquare)
