  1. I found myself a little annoyed over the Johnny Storm change... just because I feel like if you're going to make the change, at least make him match with his sister. The adoption angle just felt like a throw away excuse. Jimmy Olson on the other hand is a character who isn't tied to anyone else. I don't see how his ethnic background changes anything related to the character.

  2. I can't stop staring at that gif!

  3. Jenn and I have been laughing so hard over that One Ring story, but it's also so sad!!!

  4. That gif is hypnotizing. :D
    High five for rule followers!

  5. I can see that. But I just applaud them for trying to mix things up a bit.

  6. Exactly. I shake my head so hard at the state I live in.

  7. 1. I love the GIF.
    2. I'm glad you're reading Ann Friedman. I wish I had been friends with her in college. (I was besties with her former newspaper editor!)

    3. My picture looks really out of whack.

  8. I think I started following her because of you, so thanks for that! And the photo does look a bit wonky. :)
