First, LJ, what the fuck. Again? Things do seem to be improving though, slowly but surely, which is a good thing overall.

Second. Supernatural, what the fuck. I spend six seasons avoiding you, what the bloody hell is this? Oh, I know what it is. S6 spoilers, and the fact that they vaguely remind me of a certain season 4 plot in Charmed, one that never fails to get my hackles up. Which means, catch-up time, and if I'm right... Well. I don't like when this kind of thing happens, I'm going to do a fix-it attack again.

I didn't need another fandom. Bloody hell. But I've been watching, and I like it. I knew I would, which is why I avoided it. But, I guess with most of my paranormal shows long off the air, it was time I found another one. Or something. Help?

Muses are still not cooperating, except for the X-Men one. I should probably watch episodes 1.08 and 1.09 of The Tudors again, not to mention Inception. But trying to coax out one or two muses without disrupting others is... tricksy. Speaking of X-Men, though, I've been watching the movies again and... Um, why did they only need a babysitter in X2? OK, so a mutant's attacked the President and he could declare all mutants under arrest, but... In X1, the mansion had clearly been infiltrated and the result was that Professor X nearly died. Speaking of him, wouldn't they need someone to keep an eye on him in case his condition changed? Did they call someone and it never came up?

And another thing. The last scene of X1, where Charles and Erik are playing chess. Erik asks if Charles worries about the school coming under attack, and when Charles comes out with that great line about feeling bad for someone who comes to the school looking for trouble... Am I the only one who got the impression he was all but threatening Erik? As if it were Erik he thought would attack? Admittedly, he's a bit justified since Mystique attacked him at the school, but even so... It struck me as odd for some reason.

(I'm overthinking again, aren't I?)

On another, more amusing note, at work on Monday, this kid - five going on fourteen, according to his dad - playing on... I think a Nintendo DS. Anyway, so I ask him what the game is called, it's Penguin something. So I say I've never heard of it, and with a straight face and surprisingly deadpan tone for a kid his age I get "They didn't have this game when you were a kid." My bagger and I looked at each other and then burst out laughing.

I'm twenty. This kind of comment has never been directed at me before. I was vaguely unsettled but mostly amused as all hell. Besides, he's right.
