Wouldn’t Earring Magic be more appropriate?

Small Ken joke from Order of the Stick
I was pretty reluctant to get up and out of bed this morning. Last night was movie night which I haven’t done in a long while. I got some good snacking food and drinks and planted my ass on the couch for over 4½ hours of movies. I gotta tell you, I am not a fan of this new fangled super-movie. I think Titanic was the first one that did it to me. If my ass has fallen asleep before the movie is over, then the movie is too long. About the only thing today had going for it was that it was Friday, but still it was gonna be rainy and muggy and there was a matching cloud over my head matching those in the skies.

On the metro ride here I realize I forgot one type of bag to add to yesterday’s rant. Wheeled… backpacks. Those two words together already make my brain hurt. I mean it’s a backpack, but with a carry handle and wheels. The mechanism containing the handle and wheels likely makes it too heavy and/or painful to carry on your back as it is, yet for some reason you wanted a “backpack” instead of a briefcase or similar. The best part about the one I saw this morning… it was faux-denim. So I give it points for pure anti-style, but still get that thing off the left-hand side of the escalator, there’s people trying to walk!

Anyway, I made it here and was quickly checking up on my comics feeds when today’s Order of the Stick strip made me laugh out loud when I got to the above panel. It’s not even particularly hilarious, just so well-timed and sassy. And really the only comeback to being told something’s “beyond your ken”. Starrbooty aside, the movies really need more drag queen action heroes.

I hope everyone’s having a lovely Friday and that your time in the office is swift and relatively untroubled. 😉

    I don’t know if you’ve seen it or not yet, but do yourself a favor and rent “Into The Wild”. Good GOD what an amazing film. I’d read the book years ago, and Sean Penn has really done it a service. Gorgeous, lush, visually beautiful. Great acting.

    Definitely on my best of the year, and it’s my unrequested opinion that it’s a hell of a lot better than “No Country For Old Men” which left me so underwhelmed as to think I would have been better off taking a nap.

    This weekend for me: Wes Anderson’s “Life Aquatic with Steve Zizzou” and “The Darjeeling Limited”.

    Hope you’re doing well.
