“Mom and Dad aren’t home! What should we watch?’
“Let’s pick something dark and scary! Maybe Gotham.”
“Yeah! Mom doesn’t like those shows or movies. Netflix has all the Halloween movies out. Great timing.”
“Or we could watch a kid’s movie. Parents aren’t home to judge us.”
“That’s true! Disney movie? Mickey Mouse’s House of Villains?”
“Monsters vs Aliens!”
“Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem.”
30 minutes later, Mom walks in. “What are you watching? You always watch lousy TV when I’m gone.”
Soooooooo you might have noticed a few…just a few…posts from me recently.
Hi, yeah, I’m back! And posting every day.
I do plan to keep it up this time, too. Or at least, I do until January when I leave for Thailand. I’m not sure how it will work then.
I was reflecting on 24, though, and I realized that part of what made the year challenging was that I didn’t look for those little moments that made it wonderful. Though I did blog, it wasn’t blogging for the sake of remembering. I want to remember this season.
Also I get a little burst of dopamine every time some likes one of my posts. And that stuff is addicting!
So I’m back! I apologize if your inbox is blowing up. Hopefully the journey ahead will make it worth it.
It is another late night for me, so enjoy a few of my new favorite memes… “Superhero Texts”!
Elijah and I have been watching Batman: The Animated Series on Amazon Prime. The show came out in 1992 and you can definitely tell. It may not be Adam West’s Batman…but there are still moments…
However, I actually really like this Batman. He is noble and saves everyone. Villains, police officers, random children…this Batman is quite unlike the dark and morally ambiguous figure of today. It is easy to know Batman is the hero. Yeah, the animation is a little odd and the writing certainly has its moments, but it is genuinely enjoyable to watch.
Also, Sassy Alfred is the best.
