Okay, I realize that Mr. Winick isn't out and out going to say "I'm racist and I suck," but dismissing the people who have serious problems with Ice's new "origin" and characterization as tiny and loud isn't going to make us go away.

So, Mr. Winick?  You suck.  You can't write Ice worth a damn, you're only slightly better at the rest of them, and "thieving Gypsy" is not some new groundbreaking concept in characterization.  I'd say go back to writing the Bats, but a) I love them too much and b) Dick Grayson is canonically of Roma heritage and I don't want you near him ever again after this.

You hear me, published author who will never be anywhere near my journal?  You hear me?

...

In happier news, I got to ride again yesterday, and soon we'll be jumping.  I love jumping so much, so so much.

Also I rode McGuyver, who is very sweet but noses around my pants for horse treats.  Andandand there is a new horse, who is genuinely dappled gray and just flat out GORGEOUS.

Break is here break is here break is here!

Get to go riding get to go riding get to go riding!

I love Linkara as much as a girl can love an interent person she has never met before it becomes creepy!

That thing with Jaime better be a fakeout!

And those are my feelings today.

Acupuncture seems to be working!  Hurt much less.

Rode again!  YAyayayayyayay!  I got to ride Case, and he was such a good boy by Case standards!  He trotted around corners when asked and did not eat the ponies.  So good to see him again- I gave him so many hugs.

When I was small, I used to divide my brain up into lots of little people who ran my personality.  Have a sampling of their thoughts on the Avengers cartoon deal.

I hope you have all learned something valuable.  Now outta my head.

Also, doing schoolwork, blah blah blah.  Some kids at school and I might have a LoTR marathon.  Tai brought us a portion of squirrel to share.

A few random thoughts:

Tomorrow I leave for Europe.  Very, very nervous-making, but I am looking forward to this trip.  I am.

Arizona: I understand that you are trying to beat out South Carolina as the Crazy State.  You aren't going to succeed.  You're merely starting to try to pass unconstitutional laws on citizenship.  SC started the Civil War.

Speaking of SC, last week a guy in the town my grandmother is from saw Bigfoot and claimed it had "beautiful fur."  Arizona: behind and falling.

My cousin in Florida is getting two horses.  I am happy for her.  I am not bitter and jealous.  Really.

Well, I am happy for her.

Speaking of cousins, continue to face the difficulty that me and more than a few of my relatives have really, really different political views, including some of the ones I feel strongly about.  This can be kind of difficult to deal with at times.

Speaking of relatives, my grandparents are taking care of the dog and taking her to their house while we're gone.  I expect to return and find a much heavier Boston Terrier than we left.

That's all for now, I think.

Tuesday: Bring a Friend day at the stable.  I got to teach Daddy how to ride Case.  Have I talked about Case?  Bigbig pretty horse, former showjumper, and several tons of attitude.  He is basically a cat in big bay horse format, and spent most of the time before riding thumping his feet against the stall door to protest the entire idea.  (his feet are fine, btw.  Silly boy.)  He is my silly boy (though the stable owns him, not me) and I lovelovelove him though I kind of doubt the feeling is mutual.  Daddy sort of got him to trot when the instruction ran alongside yelling, which is about what I did my first time on him a few weeks back.  He's kind of learning to respect me, though.

Wednesday (today): Comics!  DC is putting out three books I was willing to venture into a crown for.  Marvel says that one of my favorite characters had an OOC adulterous relationship with someone I don't care about.  DC wins this week, which is good, because they were seriously losing ground.  Anyway, I got Generation Lost, Booster Gold, and Birds of Prey.  Good times.  Good writing.

Future: We're actually setting up stuff for Europe- we've got tickets, we've got reservations, etc, and I continue to be nervous.  Venice, Paris, London, and then two weeks in Scotland.

Oh, and today was mom's birthday.  Happy birthday, Mom!

Alright!  Back from the mountains, lovely as usual if a tad rainy.

Anyway, I've been thinking lately about movies, and figured I'd update. 

I've made my Lou's Annual Theater Visit, to see How To Train Your Dragon.  Recommended.  Cute, sweet, and very well told.  I want my own Toothless.  So, in the future...

Next year or so's Annual Visit looks to be Green Lantern, if only because it promises to be pretty and exciting.  Also, Hal's costume will be entirely CGI, which sounds very, VERY pretty, if you get what I mean.  I'm kind of hoping that maybe the 3D trend will hold and I'll get to see punch out of the screen space fighting, but even if not, I'm cautiously optimistic.

I will not be seeing The Last Airbender, and I will be encouraging no one else to see it, either.

Also, I need every library and bookstore in town to report to my room now, please, as there are about twenty thousand books I need nownownow.

Finally, I rode Large Pretty Horse again.  His name is Case, and I love him even if he does not seem to exactly love me.

Good, nay, GREAT:
I'm riding again!  I'm riding again! Yippee yi yay, I'm riding again!  Yahooooo!  Feels so great to be back on a horse.  This one's name is Ellie Mae, she's chestnut and sweet and wonderful.

Also good:
Had a wonderful time in the mountains.  I've discovered that really, all my siblings need to get along is the presence of one of the two Cousins Around Our Ages.  I'm fairly sure that Bonus Cousin calms us all down as well, but truly adorable babies have a way of doing that.  (I got to HOLD her!)

Not so good:
Why is it that in fandom, "you're a girl, your opinion doesn't matter" and "feminism=THEEBIL" still seem to be valid views?  Forgive me for stooping to their level, but is it because they're stuck in kindergarten?  Is it because they never get laid?* Is it because my grammar intimidates them?  I don't know.  I do know that there's a reason us fangirls run in packs, and I'm sticking close to mine, I think.

And to round off with good: Have finally installed Photoshop on this computer!  Perhaps, someday, I'll even make some icons that aren't that lovely hippo.

Someday.
