“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” - Dr. Seuss


This is a webcomic I started reading thanks to persistent fanart bombing by vikki. It's 4,107 pages and 326,796 words long (so far). That's half as long as Atlas Shrugged, only counting page titles and captions. So yeah, don't start this one unless you want to read the ...


I went to work today because I called the wrong partner - if I'd asked E, she'd have told me to avoid the weather and stay home, and she was the only one who was even in the office! But the City wasn't a bad place to be today. ...

Two cases in… Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, and I have to say that this game is AWESOME. XD Apollo Justice is the first "Phoenix Wright" game where you don't play as Phoenix Wright. But Wright does show up, and he is sooooo cool in his new "alternative" profession. I ...

Olympics, etc.

I am so totally out of the Olympic loop - though I heard there's an outdoor screen at the Castle Museum gardens in York that's doing public screenings of Olympic events, so I might go to that. I missed the torch when it passed through a few weeks ago. ...

6-years-too-late review of disposable teen comedy, John Tucker Must Die

Saw this with M. It's really not too bad... if you ignore the ending, aha. Especially the casting for John Tucker is good: at first you are like, what do any of these girls see in this guy? But by the end you are like, hmm, ...
