I am wearing a Walmart sweatsuit for y’all. If that’s not a demonstration of team spirit, I don’t know what is.

Look, I’m not stupid. It’s the Big Man’s wife. I’m gonna sit across from her, chew my food with my mouth closed, laugh at her fucking jokes, and that’s it.
This Month in DC History
In about 18 hours (Central Time) those of you without jobs (and those of you with jobs but the ability to go in late/work without much sleep/get odd bouts of the 24-hour bug) will be sitting in theaters watching Man of Steel. Some of you will like it. Some of you will hate it. Some of you will hope that the next DC movie that comes out doesn’t involve a bat or a shield but maybe an amazon or a lightening bolt. But whatever happens, nothing would have happened if Superman wasn’t introduced in Action Comics #1 back in 1939.
What else was happening in Superman in 1939?
- Superman wasn’t able to fly or have heat vision or freeze breath in the early days. All that would come later. His introductory powers included leap 1/8th of a mile, hurdle a 20 story building, raise tremendous weights, and run faster than a express train.
- Along with Superman, Lois Lane was introduced. She obviously was covering the story on Superman but she rejected Clark because he was a “spineless, unbearable coward”. Get a room you two. Also these two worked for the Daily Star. The Daily Planet wouldn’t appear until the next year.
- Jimmy Olsen was introduced in Action Comics #6 but he looked nothing like he does today. Aside from the bowtie, Jimmy was blond and when by the odd nickname “inquisitive office-boy”. Thankfully that didn’t stick. Can you imagine collecting issues of Superman’s Pal Inquisitive Office-Boy?
Seeing Man of Steel tomorrow, still hoping that it won’t make me sad. I just love Supes so much…

Everything about her seems to be saying, Listen, if you don’t look attentively, if you don’t go beyond my simplicity to detect the simmering volcano in me, you are not it.

Working on making my own dining set. Only a service of four, to later be supplemented by whatever. I’m not really into matching, as you can see.
Honestly, genuinely: Be prepared to be broke for fifteen years. And if you can do that - if you can hang on for ten years with no money while the rest of your friends buy houses and have babies, and you can try to create your own stuff, and work with the right people - something will happen.

I’m like, a year in. If that. AWESOME.
It gets better! (And worse!)
I’m just getting into month #3, living it up, well living it down and loving it.
I know I’ve reblogged this before, and it’s still true.
