Stooooopid time change. I hate it. I wish they had dropped the whole thing but I guess the bill that was making its way through the California law process died a quite death. Bummer. Who cares if it would have made New York 4 hours ahead part of the year :P

We had a good weekend, timechange or otherwise. I got up early Saturday morning and went to Kaiser to get my labs done. I’m about 2 months overdue :P So far all the results look really good though. Cholesterol and liver tests are just a tick over the normal range and my blood sugar could be better. Still no results for the HIV things like viral load and t-cells, those take longer but I don’t expect any surprises there.

Yesterday Bob struggled through the time change and got himself up and off to breakfast with some friends of ours. I passed on going to breakfast and went ahead to the farmers market on my own, then did the weekly grocery shop. It’s still just a tidge early for the farmers market, not much of interest to me there. There were some strawberries this week but they were a little underripe. Another week or two and things should start popping there.

Some friends invited us to go see King Kong in the afternoon so I skipped my normal Sunday nap and went to see the big ape on the screen. It was a good enough movie, kept my interest (and awake LOL), but not anything OMG awesome about it. It gets a solid B in my book. Will be interesting to see how they tie it together with Godzilla in the sequels, now that they are building their new shared monsterverse of movies.

After the movie we had dinner at Yard House, so yummy. Unfortunately our friends fish tacos were not yummy. I didn’t try them but everyone else agreed they were bad. Bleh.

Today is David’s 50th birthday. I’ve spoken with him a few times over the last week, after not having much contact the last 6 or so months. He seems to be doing ok. Not doing meth, so that’s a plus. He seems to be sticking with the Catholic church, though I’m not sure he’s continuing on his path to become deacon as he once was. Something happened but he isn’t clueing us in on it. I suspect the church came down on him because of the homosexuality thing, not to mention the meth addict issue. I’m not thrilled with his closeness with the Roman Catholic diocese, but whatever keeps him from using is good I spose. Anyway, today is his 50th,and I’m thinking of him. And I’m thinking of how my 50th is right around the corner too. 50 years old. So wild. :P

March is the ask me anything question month thingee. Got a question, ask away. Some that have come in are:

What would you most like to have people say about you after you've died?

That’s a relatively easy one for me. I’ve thought about it before in terms of “how do I want to live my life, and have it remembered”. I don’t know I could pick any one specific item but things I would love to hear:

He made me laugh
He made me smile
He taught me something
He made a difference in my life (hopefully a positive difference LOL)
He was happy
He made my/the world better in some way

I think I’m pretty clear on what is most important to me, clearly I am co-dependent hahahaha

Who's the most popular superhero that does nothing for you? Which superhero do you think deserves way more love than they get?

Hmmmm, a popular hero I just am not in to… My first thought would be Deadpool, but I have to admit I seriously loved the movie last year. Still not hip on the comic though. Since Deadpool gets a pass for the movie though, I think I would have to choose DC’s version of Deadpool, Lobo. I’ve never liked that sort of bombastic wild for the sake of being wild character.

Hero deserving more lovin’s???? That is a super tough one. I’m not sure if I would want any of my underrated favorites to become super popular, that tends to ruin them over time. Right now I’m loving a book called Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, it’s sweet and it’s fun and has been somewhat under the radar. But I’m seeing Moon Girl pop up more and more places and its charm is in danger of getting lost with other writers and the need to “grow and change” to keep things from getting stale.

If you were a comic book writer, what book would you write, and what
changes would you make?

As fertile as my imagination is, I’m not sure I ever really dream up new stories for existing characters. I suppose there are minor changes I would make to some (say changing the new Kid Flash from Wally West II to Bart Allen), I think one of the things I love about comics is someone else takes care of the fantasy for me.

I think if you had asked this a couple years ago I would have had a somewhat different answer, as the books all seemed to be going through a dark time and were not enjoyable. Now I’m loving them more and more again, after about 5 years of not so great books being published there is a renewed energy that is drawing from the past, and is more light and fun. That would have been the change I would have wanted to see a while back, lighten up. Comics don’t need to be grim and realistic, they need to be fun. I’m glad they seem to be heading back that way.
