So most of my apartment is cleared out. I have to go back for one more trip, but I'm hoping I can clear up some other things along the way, so that'll be cool.

I also FINALLY got around to playing that Watchmen video game for the cell phone because I'm that behind. Man, that had some bad dialogue. And I had to defeat the final boss (some guy with a bionic arm) twice because the game froze the first time and didn't show me the ending. And bionic arm guy was actually HARD. (Also hate the quicktime events) But ... eh, it was a nice distraction in between chores.

I'm also glad I have my own computer back, anyway. Can't use the Internet on it, but writing in notebooks really sucks so it'll be nice to have my own word program again.

Man, is it just me or is Firestar's costume looking really boring lately?

I'm feelin' the rage building around this, although I'm not feeling it for myself. One because my heart has hardened into a black rock of cynicism, but two because I feel like this has been something that's been passed around the Marvel Comics HQ for awhile and it's finally come to fruition just because it's BEEN THERE for awhile. I remember [livejournal.com profile] papajoemambo suggesting to me that this was an idea they had, although I thought it turned into Alias. I'm guessing they've just gotten stuck on it and want to see it done through hell or highwater, just because it's there. That's probably why the Watchmen movie got made.

But why now, really? I mean, Sex and the City has been off the air for five years now. Combining it with superheroes has already been done and didn't their last sexy girls book with the Black Cat and an underused African-American heroine not do so well and was not helped because Marvel kind of showed it didn't really give a shit what the female audience thought.

I don't know. I kind of say what I've said when I read the horrible Mary Jane novel and the I-remain-unimpressed by it Mary Jane/Mary Jane: Homecoming/Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane series: if I wanted to read romance I would read romance. I mean, I don't think I would love Sex and the City but I figure they know what they're doing.
