OMG can we please change the main character!!! I am honestly so sick and tired of Wally West. Don't get me wrong, I love the guy but he is the most boring and uninterested character to focus on!! At least the way he is being written. After reading the annual I had hope that they might capture that amazing chemistry and great friendship in the regular serial issues but of course not, that would be asking for too much. UGH!!!

Also, a romantic triangle??? Really??? What, they don't have an original thought in their head so they need to resort to this overused plot!!! No, just no. I think I'm honestly done with it. Sigh. 

Parenting: A Gender Moment

I was just reading [personal profile] veleda_k's great post on gender in The Lego Movie and commenting on how I worry about how messages like this affect my kids, but it put me in mind of a more hopeful recent gender moment with my son.

I've been reading him The Lord of the Rings, and we came across some line (I don't remember exactly) like whoever has the Ring, it will corrupt "him":

Son: Who's "him"?

Me: Whoever gets the Ring, whoever possesses it.

Son: But it could be a woman.

Me: That's true, but this older English from a time when "he" meant any random person, including women.

(Son looks at me like both I and the world are insane.)

Me: One day I will show you the Blake's 7 episode where Avon uses "he" (actually "his") to refer to a group of one man and two women.

(Son looks even more dubious.)

(Mom's heart is profoundly encouraged.)

ever had a good and bad day all at once? ever had that feeling that no matter how great you feel it's very much temporary and none of it is ever going to last long enough to matter in the long run? i'm selfish this way. i'm selfish in a way that i always want it to be more or less substantial even if it's casual.

i'm talking about friendships and work and relatives and passions.

it's been a long day and i'm tired.
