Archie (and today’s major memory fail)

A conversation with Joon, about the disappointing news that Archie chooses to marry Veronica:

Joon: I dunno, for some reason I always thought people would prefer Betty. Like it’s really an obvious thing to me.

Me: But he chose Veronica! It sucks. Were we in grade school then? Or I was in grade school, you were in high school? When I was in grade school, I had no idea that Veronica was “bad”, only that she was the popular pretty one, and Betty was smart and awkward, and I liked Betty. But she never won.

Joon: Maybe this is the equivalent to the death of Superman or Batman or Captain America.

Me: Captain America’s dead?

Joon: Yes! Since last year!

Me: Aww, poor him. He’s the one with the flying shield right? “Captain America and his flying shieeeeeld.” Or was it mighty? Mighty shield?

Joon: Wow, you are one clueless lass if you still need to describe that he has a shield. And yes, it’s mighty shield.

Me: I’m so gonna blog this conversation.

Joon: I plurked it.

Joon’s plurk:

“When Captain America throws his flying shield…” -Luna



Well, shit.

I don’t collect comics, but I saw this, and I want it. Bad.

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

I liked the film, but I LOVED the book. Loved it.




xkcd remains to be my favorite webcomic.

Starbucks Madrigal is now open 24 hours on Fridays and Saturdays, and they have started their Christmas fever with my favorite peppermint mocha, giving me no excuse not to finish my novel. I’ve only written 6,450 words, and juggling this with my game design class is proving harder than expected. However, I’ve survived this before, so I’m sure to survive it again.

In other news, I’ve started running, and it’s much more fun than walking, though it’s harder too, of course 😉

Speaking of my dad, happy birthday Daddy! My dad is one of the coolest people ever, and I just found out that he reads my blog (because he told me and my shocked mom over dinner, “Your daughter curses in every other sentence!”).

Happy birthday Daddy, and just for you, I didn’t say “fuck” in this entry, not even once.
