The Gorgorian Maw is so named because the harbor looks not unlike a gaping mouth when seen on a map. Also because I think it sounds cool. (Add dudes in turbans to the list of things Will loves to draw.)
I’m super-duper tired and the load of [REDACTED] on my plate doesn’t seem to be getting any smaller anytime soon. Things are so bad that I have no idea when I’m going to get to see Rogue One, and Star Wars movies are just a smidge below my wife and my job in terms of things that I value.
So…yeah. I’m going to bed.
Sometimes I just throw in a new place name into the dialogue. I have no idea where it is or what purpose it will serve in the story, if any, but I do it. Sometimes I do just to make the world feel a little larger…and besides, I will eventually want to take the story to new places. This method gives me new places BEFORE I need them.
So I finally got to watch the DC/CW Crossover yesterday, and it was loads of fun.
SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS
It’s weird to have gotten the Atom back without an evolution of his armor or powers. It’s NICE to have what seems to be a reasonable resolution to Flash’s angst over altering the timeline, and it’ll be REALLY nice to get hilarious Cisco back, because Emo Cisco was getting on my nerves. Arrow’s 100th episode was very well done. Most of all, it was nice to see these shows get what the DC films heretofore have not, that being a superhero is about doing the right thing for the right reasons. Getting that right makes the corny parts of these shows so easy to swallow…and these shows do have some corny parts.
By the time you guys are reading this, #Squirrel and I are probably finally getting to see a doctor for what ails her. Keep your fingers crossed for a quick and easy resolution to this latest crisis!
Much has been made of Hunter’s seeming ignorance of the combat going on behind him. It IS nighttime, so he likely would not be able to see what we see…and also, his ignorance is quite willful.
I mentioned earlier that #Squirrel is having a new health issue, and that being quiet is the order of the day around my home…well, that means not too much TV for me. (I can’t even watch stuff on my computer with my earbuds, because I need to be able to hear her if she calls for me.) So I have missed two weeks worth of Star Wars Rebels AND I’ve only managed to squeeze in the Supergirl episode of the DC/CW crossover…which is literally 30 seconds of crossover!
(…I really don’t care about any of this. I’m much more focused on getting #Squirrel to the doctor and finding a way to alleviate her pain and head off any potential further threats to her health. I just like to give it a geeky subtext.)
I’m just going to come out and say it: I did not expect this many ninjas.
Sigh. #Squirrel has been dealing with health issues again, this time due to injury rather than to a condition…not that the distinction matters. It is never fun when your wife is feeling less than her best. She’s in constant pain and I’m getting very little sleep, so we’re both cranky. Fortunately, we’re good at making up.
Anyway, it’s going on 4 AM as I type this, so I’m off to bed. No work tomorrow! (Except for writing and bending myself to #Squirrel’s will.)
I don’t know if you guys noticed, but there are A LOT of ninjas on these rooftops…
Did I mention that #Squirrel and I watched Batman V. Superman again (or most of it, anyway)? It’s on HBO and we were flipping channels, and there it was. Now, #Squirrel LOVES Henry Cavill, so I didn’t force the issue…
…but man, that is a bad movie, and it gets worse with subsequent viewings. The good things about it, bits of Ben Affleck’s performance and all things Wonder Woman, fail to obscure the massive stink coming off of Zack Snyder’s version of Superman (I put no blame on Henry Cavill, either…I think he’d be a tremendous Superman, if he was actually allowed to play Superman) and the sheer stupidity of most of the story.
Man, that is a bad movie.
