A couple of weeks ago my Mum basically summed up my summer after graduation by handing me a journal with the words: "Here's something for you, there's a crossword about superheroes on page 70 and one about football on page 80."
Though by now, since the Euros are done (NO I DO NOT WHISH TO TALK ABOUT IT UGH) I would change "football" to "The British Army* during the late 18th, early 19th century. I'm currently, together with angie_white, reading Master and Commander and we are also working our way through her Sharpe collection together with a third friend and just this past weekend we had a Hornblower-marathon with yet another friend. This also begs the question:
BRITISH OFFICERS DURING THE NAPOLEONIC WARS, I LOVE YOU BUT WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE SO DAMN FRUSTRATING
I'm supposed to be studying right now (I have graduated, but I'm talking a summer course about children's and youth literature) so naturally I'm amusing myself with The Super Dictionary; in which Robin just want to be loved by Batman, Lois Lane wears a box on her head and we learn that Superman once swam away in a river of his own tears as a baby. It's from the seventies and while a lot of it is hilarious, other things are just weird and I have absolutely no idea how it's suppose to help children learn new words. My favourite ones are on the tumblr's background: Superman either fighting a giant teaspoon or (it's unclear) going rouge with a giant teaspoon and Lex Luthor stealing forty cakes.
And speaking of Batman, The Dark Knight Rises is out soon! I'm getting properly excited, and I have all these theories and about the ending and Bane and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character and no-one to talk to about them since I don't want to spoil anyone...
I have also, after talking with evelynegrey on Midsummer's eve, started re-watching all my favourite episodes of Supernatural. Isn't it nice when you can go back to something, be it a television series or a band or whatever, and remember just how much you used to love it in the first place and why you still do?
* Or just England at that time since I have also watched an adaption of Emma this week and just got a dvd with Northanger Abbey yesterday...
**The answer is DUTY. It's always DUTY.
