Today we finally saw the Avengers, I am a comic book fan, have been one since 1983. I’m glad the rest of the world has fallen in step with the comic geeks. I accept your apology. Now, I always loved when some team,( X-men went) visits Asgard & the writers of those times (x -men Chris Clarmont Best ever!) made Loki very laugh out loud funny then. My 16 year old told me that Thor was on Netflix. I had been waiting for it to come to DVD. So I meet Loki & just like being 13 I fall hard for him or perhaps the man who played him, Tom Hiddleston- But I’m sure that it is the combination of both character & actor. My daughter never tells me of her movie crushes until now. We seem to have a mutual regard for Loki. My daughter is in Vermont, this is the picture I sent her, the one were Loki & i are about to kiss. My son & daughter make it a rule while we wait for the movie or after to play with the cardboard cutouts, because as far as touching our hero or sexy enemies this is as close as we get.
I remember it was on of those days where the outside temp. was a good 5 degrees higher then our own internal temp. I remember thinking if our temps were this high, we would be in the hospital, dying & this man is outside painting. Some people can push that comfort level way down. I was sitting in my car with the a/c blasting so hard my I had model hair, eating chocolate that didn’t melt on the 2 second walk to my car. I am weak, since my surgery I wear socks & sweat shirts while everyone in the house is as close to being naked as I will allow. This week the highest of highs was 106 without counting heat index. 106 will put a man in a coma & lower his IQ to drooling & this man is painting in the sun. He is a non fiction superman. & someone is paying 10 dollars an hour to paint the laundry place or maybe die.
“well, bless his heart” That is a southern saying for. “what a damn fool”
I ate chocolate in a car with a/c running with gas @ 4 dollars a gallon.
“Well, bless her heart, she can’t help that she is a lazy, selfish, pig.” I thought to myself as I shove a candy bar down my throat.
No moral or happy ending. I didn’t like myself much. Do I care more for the men & women doing manual labor in 100 degree weather? Yes. But I can’t think of them, because I want to cry, I don’t have a soap box, I don’t have a job, I have health care & a/c. Can I change anything? Not really, I can just vote.
In Alabama, we cook ‘em in the summer heat, legal or not.
They came to watch H. play t-ball. My father told me my whole life while I was growing tall, he would say, “Our parents make us, then we remake ourselves” I guess I forgot the photo part. 4 generations of photographers & now S. picking up the torch or camera rather. My father’s favorite cameras were the Hasselblad & the Contax SLR because of its Zeiss lenses/optics. I guess being an eye guy, I would believe him, but can’t afford either one of his favorites. So I use the standard Nikon D90. Although with computers & lasers cutting the camera lens it doesn’t matter as much as it did.
