Almighty Darkseid.

Yesterday was a wash, partly because I woke up too early & partly because I was just plain old feeling tuckered out. I think some of it is my body's circadian rhythms adjusting to my wife's new schedule. Jenny & I watched some Saturday Night Live-- is it just me or have a lot of the jokes the last few episodes been like "hur hur, not conforming to gender roles!" Even the "Two Sides!" Hugh Jackman sketch-- which was originally spoofing gender roles in a positive way in the first place-- seemed muddled up. I watched some Mythbusters-- a myth about walking in a straight line that turned out to be hillarious!--- & then we knocked off a serial kidnapper episode of Fringe which was pretty stressful, in that way that well made television can be. Yep; Fringe is totally a worthy successor to The X-Files. After that, I went to the gym for another hour or so. Still feeling weak-- I just didn't have that push, that oomph-- but I still kept busy, & I told myself that I might go again tonight. & I just might, at that. There are Solitaire games on the elliptical machine, which is great, because if there is only rubbish to watch, I can take a swing at cards-- I won two out of three games! Also, Quantum of Solace was on, which put me in the mood to play more GoldenEye. Which is good, because that ended up happening. Ryan came over, & then baby Olivia came over. Little Olivia, I should start saying, because at eleven months, she's beginning to operate upright. She played with: globes, buttons, mirrors, & a giant d20-- so she's basically a first level adventurer, alright. When Kira & Nino picked her up, they took Jenny away-- I sort of languished on the couch like a bag of potatoes-- & then Ryan & I hung out the rest of the night playing video games-- the aforementioned GoldenEye & then some Batman: the Brave & the Bold-- & watching television. Cartoons about comic book characters-- starting with the "What Do You Get For the Man Who Has Everything?" episode of Justice League Unlimited, which Ryan had neither seen nor read. Mongul was the bad guy in the level of Batman: the Brave & the Bold we beat, & Ryan hadn't heard of him; also I think Mongul's fight with Wonder Woman is awesome in that episode, & Superman's Fortress of Solitude rules. Then we ordered some assorted Greek food & watched the beginning of All-Star Superman, before I realized how late it was & sent him home. Jenny came home but to her dismay I was ready for bed. Nine-thirty! An all new low.
