Metal bender.



Yesterday I put my boots on & went to work. There has been #amazonfail in the air! Also, stomach flu, since it seems like everyone besides me also went & got sick this weekend. Besides all that, I came home & Jenny had brought Avatar: the Last Airbender to watch. All of which was her idea; she's got the yearn for it! It was just the first disk, but I enjoyed it. It seems to largely be about surfing on cute animals. The worldbuilding is something I really enjoy-- it is very panethnic, very multicultural in its inspiration. The Water Tribe have a sort of Pacific Island/Inuit mash-up going on, the Air Nomads are sort of Indians/Tibetan, the Fire Nation is Japanese/Chinese, & we haven't seen the Earth Kingdom yet. Of course, realizing this just makes the fact that the live-action version has cast all white people even more offensive-- or wait, no, sorry, they did cast an asian guy as the villain. I also drink two (2) beers. Really exciting, right? There was a dinner of brussels sprouts & cod, & there were leftovers that I should have had for breakfast, but didn't. I should probably snack on something.
