Things I Love Thursday

In the Eye of the Beholder by ~Tiddelz on deviantART

“I told him Spider-Man is here to rescue you, no monsters are going to attack you and I told him to walk slowly towards me as running could be dangerous,” Somchai told local television.

“I hate to break it to you Victor–BATMAN IS DEAD.”

“This got us thinking: what if Wolverine had been around for hundreds, if not thousands, of years? What great, classic artists would want a crack at drawing a Wolverine cover?”

Wolverine as classic art

“Somewhere between Say Anything, and MTV’s Next bus, we throw out the rulebook completely and just started winging it. Our individual quests for love and sex have become as varied and strange as life itself. This was a good and necessary change, but it has made dating… well, terrifying.”

Tips for a First Date

Batman: Edward by ~Diddle-diddle on deviantART

“Sitting in my underwear in my apartment while typing a blog post, I am reminded of the fact that there are probably twenty to thirty other liberal arts leftovers with some sort of humanities degree sitting in front of their own computer reading or writing a blog entry also.”

Self-titled Liberal Arts Leftovers

“To the woman carrying the trendy black bag: “Very nice purse.” “It’s very large.”’

Compliment Guys

“How do you wake up in the morning? Falling out of your bed as the noisy buzzing alarm clock goes off or slowly opening your lashes as the first rays of sunshine peek through your curtains and the birds begin their chorus? How would you like to wake up?”

“Wow… the wig! What a project!”

If you could visit anywhere in Texas for a few days and the only restriction was that it was in driving distance, where would you go?

I’m not sure where I would go. There’s too many places I would like to see.

Dare to be lovely.

Work Question

March 26, 2009

I’m just curious… what did you guys study in school? How long did you study it for? How much does it relate to what you are doing right now? Most importantly: How much do you enjoy what you do?

I think I’ve come to the decision to change my major. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be in school for much longer now, since it’s very different from my current area of study (English major to web design major??? Yeah…just wasted a year of school). I just don’t think I can teach. I’m not that patient, and as much as I love writing, I need something to pay the bills. I’ve always been really interested in it, but I’ve never really had the time to actually study and learn anything about it.

I put in an application at the photo studio in Target. I’m considering applying for an even coordinator position for Girls, Inc. I wouldn’t be able to start until school was over, but it pays well and seems soooo interesting. It’s a bit of a drive, but I think it would be fun. I hate it; as much as I dislike Party City at this point, it was my first job and I would not have gone back if I didn’t love it. I hate kids, I hate people, but I love the employees there and I love what I do. It’ll be hard not working there, but they’re cutting everyone to four days a week, and with what I make there, I need to work five. I just have too many medical bills to pay off and in addition to that, I have to buy food and pay the bills. I still don’t like it. I would have liked to be looking for a new job under different circumstances.

“Existence is random. Has no pattern save what we imagine after staring at it for too long. No meaning save what we choose to impose. This rudderless world is not shaped by vague metaphysical forces. It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It’s us. Only us.”

Watchmen, Alan Moore

<♥ From jokerxharley, the comm collects their favorite J/HQ moments and here is a fantastic Harley cosplayer.

“You grow up readin’ about pirates and cowboys and spacemen and stuff, and jus’ when you think the world’s all full of amazin’ things, they tell you it’s really all dead whales and chopped-down forests and nucular waste hangin’ about for millions of years. ‘Snot worth growin’ up for, if you ask my opinion.”

Not space news.

Space future.

“Expectation is what these stops are about; expectation and elastic energy. Like internal springs, they propel you forward in a sentence towards more information, and the essential difference between them is that while the semicolon lightly propels you in any direction related to the foregoing (“Whee! Surprise me!”), the colon nudges you along lines already subtly laid down.”

Eats, Shoots & Leaves, Lynne Truss

Columbus’ Desktop by *pokefreak on deviantART

“They had a choice, all of them. They could have followed in the footsteps of good men like my father, or President Truman. Decent men, who believed in a day’s work for a day’s pay. Instead they followed the droppings of lechers and communists and didn’t realize that the trail led over a precipice until it was too late. Don’t tell me they didn’t have a choice. Now the whole world stands on the brink, staring down into bloody hell, all those liberals and intellectuals and smooth-talkers…and all of a sudden nobody can think if anything to say.”

Watchmen, Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons

♥ Watchmen LOVE: The MS Paint version, the graphic novel and movie may be dark, but these are all cute, even Rorschach has boring nights, and more Watchmen humor. Can you tell I loved this movie!?!?!?

♥ From YOU ARE REMARKABLE: On spring cleaning, knowing yourself, and the indomitable Gala Darling.

♥ In case you haven’t noticed, I have a new (okay, not-so-new) obsession with superheroes. Now you can make your own!

“Now–be warned! It is my job to arm you against the foulest creatures known to wizardkind! You may find yourselves facing your worst fears in this room. Known only that no harm can befall on you whilst I am here. All I ask is that you remain calm.”

Harrry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets, J.K. Rowling

♥ Dumb Little Man tells us why we should ignore our horoscopes. This pretty much sums up my reasons for not following mine.

♥ From Offbeat Bride.com: something to keep in mind when buying your wedding flowers.

One of those things that doesn’t need an introduction.

“The word love set his nerves ablaze. All his body thrilled with it, and he answered her in the same words, kissing her hot face over and over again, drinking in with adoration the scent of her body and her warn honey-fragrant hair and her sweet moist mouth that tasted of the little red fruit.

Around them there was nothing but silence, as if all the world were holding it’s breath.”

The Amber Spyglass, Phillip Pullman

Batman Dark Knight by ~felipemassafera on deviantART

“Through my blue fingers, pink grains are falling, haphazard, random, a disorganized stream of silicone that seems pregnant with the possibility of every conceivable shape…but this is illusion. Things have their shape in time, not space alone. Some marble blocks have statues within them, embedded in their future.”

Watchmen, Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons

“So they went off together. But wherever they go, and whatever happens to them on the way, in that enchanted place on to top of the Forest a little boy and his Bear will always be playing.”
