I'm a lucky man to count on both hands the ones I love

I am a wild mix of emotions today, let's explore!

First, it's my day off, but I've been up since 6:30 a.m. so I could go to the dermatologist, come back home and do some chores (that's now, I'm taking a break) and then in an hour I have to go to Central for a training, then come home and cook a zillion things for a work party tomorrow. I'm exhausted.

I have a pizza and DVD date on Sunday with a pal who is going through some rough times. I want to get some movies from the library but can't decide which...what's your go-to, always makes you happy to watch, pure comfort movie?

I am missing Addison an insane amount right now, I'm not even sure why. I actually started crying last night thinking about it. This is utterly ridiculous. I can't visit right now, there's nothing to be done about it, wallowing achieves nothing. And yet...

The other day I read this Big Bang that had sort of a throwaway bit about how Jensen always took multiple drinks with him when he'd leave the shared J2 apartment, as if he thought he'd dehydrate immediately upon leaving. Yesterday, as I struggled to get into the car while holding my mug of hot tea and an insulated glass of ice water, I had to pause and laugh at myself. My commute only is 20 minutes!! But I like liquids in the car. I don't even know! *hands*

Let me first disclaim this by saying that I do truly believe no one ever should be spoiled for anything against their will. No non con spoiling!

However.

It is causing me GREAT amusement that everyone in the world is FREAKING OUT about Letterman spoiling the ending of Batman. Or, should I say "spoiling". I m not a Batman fan. Couldn't care less, really. And even *I* knew the ending of this movie prior to Letterman saying it. It's not an actual secret! It's part of the Batman myth!

I dated a guy just before I turned 21 (that's 19 years ago, if you're counting) who read comics, and I clearly can remember him telling me about what happens. FROM 20 YEARS AGO. NOT A SPOILER!! He also told me about Bane, which CRACKS ME UP considering that this morning on the radio they were talking about some vague controversy about the Bane character being a reference to Mitt Romney's company. Again I say...20 YEARS AGO!!!

People amuse me a lot.

In other news, Donald Sobol died. He was author of the Encyclopedia Brown books, which I have fond memories of reading as a child. In the article, it mentioned that the first EB book was rejected 24 times before a publisher was willing to take a chance on it. Side note: Madeline L'Engle's Wrinkle in Time was rejected 26 times before it got a publisher. (There were several reasons but one was because "A Wrinkle in Time had a female protagonist in a science fiction book," which at the time "wasn't done" according to L'Engle.)

Never give up y'all. On anything. Not ever.
