Thank you Tom Conneely for this video.
Yesterday my parents watched the kids, and my wife and I were able to finally go out at see Avatar. And let me tell say that if you like naked blue people, between this flick and Watchmen, the past year has been good for you.
Afterwords we went to a nearby bookstore to just browse, seeing as how that’s exactly the sort of thing that we haven’t been able to do in a very long time.
While we were there, my wife discovered that they have an entire section dedicated to World of Warcraft fiction. She had somehow, despite being a huge WOW fangirl, missed this phenomenon.
We were discussing these books when I mentioned that there were even Warcraft SAT prep graphic novels.
Wife: Really? How the hell does that work.
Me: They correctly use words that students will need to know, to help them improve their….umm…crap…I can’t remember the word…
Wife: Verbal portion?
Me: No….dammit….that word that means the words that you already know…
Wife: You mean vocabulary?
Me: Yes! Vocabulary!
Wife: (Stifling laughter) You mean the word that you would have remembered if you had one?
Me: Yes. Dammit. Shut up.
Wife: (Now laughing quite loudly) I suppose that the irony here is not lost on you?
Me: *sigh*. No. No it isn’t.
I wonder if anybody has ever made a “Planet of the Apes” themed adult movie.
He dances better than me. Or most other white people now that I think about it.
I’ll ease back into things with a nice video.
This evening my wife and I were watching some reruns of an old sitcom, when she saw an add that caught her attention.
To be honest, she was watching the show. I was gluing little tiny power armored super-soldiers. Because I am way cool like that.
