Been a long time since the last update. I’ve been really wondering whether it’s worth it to keep updating this thing, actually, since so few people read it.
But anyway. Not that much happened last week. It rained like hell last Wednesday while I was getting off the bus, but the rain kept up for only about half an hour. There were various work things. Went to see “The Avengers” on Sunday, and that was pretty good. There were a whole bunch of references to obscure things from the comic books, which is always kind of fun. When Thor and the Hulk were fighting, the Hulk couldn’t lift Mjönir, even though the Hulk is stronger than Thor, because only those who are worthy can lift Mjölnir. And Tony Stark referring to the Avengers as “Earth’s mightiest heroes, that sort of thing,” because that’s been the tagline of the Avengers comic book for a very long time.
Robert Downey, Jr. is basically the perfect person to play Tony Stark. Tom Hiddleston was great as Loki. You had to suspend disbelief, especially for the invisible flying aircraft carrier, but whatever.
And then on Monday, things were pretty normal for most of the day, then several people thought that 4:15pm was a great time to ask for really complicated things and say, “Something’s been screwed up for about 48 hours, can you fix it right now?” Sigh. . . .
