Brace yourselves, gang: This is a rant-tastic rant. Also known as "Rhoda Hates Her Job" version 8.0. It ain't all bad, but I'm putting it under a cut today because it's loooooong.
Are we ready? ( Okay, GO! )
And for the less annoying parts of my day: I did get my cousin a baby shower gift, didn't wind up stretching my checking account to the breaking point to do it, polished off the rest of my mom's b-day present, got my copy of New Moon
back from my previous manager, and bought myself the Watchmen
soundtrack. So there. (It's all kinds of epic, by the way. Can't WAIT to see the movie, but I gotta finish the graphic novel first.)
Incidentally, I'm more likely to stretch my checking account to the breaking point if I'm spending money on loved ones rather than myself. Not sure why that is. Maybe because this is a time-sensitive gift, and all the stuff I have on my list (such as the Tale of Two Sisters
DVD) isn't going anywhere no matter how long it takes me to buy it. I've been told I have the patience of a saint. It's been tested more than once, but I try to keep it going.
In other news: The Joker lives on. If you're not following TheJokerBlogs on YouTube
, you need to be. I'm not normally a big advocate of fan-made nonsense, but this is pretty damn impressive. And hell, since Chris Nolan can't follow the Joker/Harley storyline anymore, someone has to. However it's a good thing no one knows who that kid is yet, because the fangirls would be on him like white on rice if they did. (Yes, I'm totally including myself in that group. Psycho is sexy.)
Lurkers are quitters. Give me some comment love, peeps!
