Boy howdy, this Supreme Court is working really hard to sink to the bottom of the barrel.

Why presidential elections matter, friends.

We switched drop off/pickup duties today

I love my husband, but when I went to pick up boys it looked like Kid B was wearing capris. 3Ts are so last season. The others were appropriately dressed though.

Unrelated, wow does Madonna sound like a baby on “Like a Virgin.”

And comic fans can be amongst the most passionate types of fans I’ve ever found, and sometimes that passion is brought to life in the most beautiful of ways. Look at the community ‘Sex Criminals’ (‘Brimpers’) and ‘Captain Marvel’ (‘Carol Corps’) have created around their books; those fans are fonts of pure, unbridled enthusiasm.

It doesn’t matter if they’re recreating comic covers or talking about the time they found porn in the woods or having incredibly positive events at Emerald City ComiCon, they are what we should all hope to amount to as fans of the medium. They take their love of the books that matter to them and they externalize that in all of the best ways. They make people want to find out why they love those books so much.

Which is why it makes it so frustrating that some comic fans take that love and turn it into the worst form of negativity, the type that is designed to take others down to their level and to make them feel pain in one way or another.

Another day, another parent making the rest of the world’s parents look bad. This dad gifts his two kids with a different pop culture-based lunch every single day.

Honestly, this is the kind of A+ pop culture-slash-amazeballs lunchbox action I would expect from the likes of electradaddy or lazydad.

We usually see kids at Fraser. They may have adult treatment programs but in the several months we’ve been here I have never seen anyone older than a teenager. A woman in her 70s was waiting next to me, this past hour. Her adult son walked out, notebook clutched to his chest and she smiled and they shuffled out together.

I am exhausted and that amplifies everything times a million, but I could feel the breath hiccuping in my chest, everything in me to not start leaking everywhere.

Monday.

Monday morning.

Three and a half hours of sleep.

Not enough coffee in the wooooooooooooooorld.

The ’80s were weird.

I feel like the fact that my go-to “sick day” VHS tapes in the 80s were Spacecamp, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Goonies, Howard the Duck and One Crazy Summer probably says a lot more about me than I’m entirely comfortable with.

Also, God, poor Lea Thompson.
