Easter, Temp Jobs and Observations

You scored 25 nervousness!
You really should be more nervous. People want to make coats out of you, you know. It's a harsh, harsh world, my friend.

Ok, I'm warming up to Mark Loretta given his ninth inning heroics today but I'm still not convinced the trade was a good thing as Josh Bard wasn't particularly good on Saturday.

Yesterday, I ran a Easter Egg Hunt for the kids at church. I really should have given the little kids a headstart as I had intended but I forgot and I also really should have collected all the plastic eggs and should not have let the kids take the baskets home. Maybe I'll remember all these things next time.

Last night or maybe Saturday night, I finally got my sleep cycle back to normal after finishing the mail room assignment Friday morning. Oh, get this we finished at 4am instead of 7am so I had to wait almost a half hour for my father to come pick me up. I really hated having to wake him but I didn't know what else to do. Why is there so much discrimination against non-drivers? (I see this in attempted relationships, as I've mentioned more than once, as well.)

This weekend I bought, with some of my earnings from the seminar, the Star Trek Fan Collective: Borg DVD set. (Did tell everyone I'm actually paying my bills again?) On the package it says it's the best of the episodes as chosen by fans but aside from the episode where Voyager encounters the former Borg and I think most, if not all, of the Icheb episodes not to mention the episode where Seven has the multiple personalities, they are all here. Yesterday, apparently was Scarlet Pomers Day as I watched her as Naomi Wildman and then later came across an episode of Reba although if you didn't know they were the same person, you wouldn't...

When Captain America Throws His Mighty Shield...

As I was recently discussing with someone on Twitter, I'm not a big fan of "Good Guys Manipulated Fight Each Other" films so it's sad that Captain America: Civil War came out so close on the heels of Batman v. Superman. As maybe I've confessed before I am more of a Marvel fan but that is not why this one was better.  DC fans frequently point out this was the 13th Marvel film while BvS  is only the second of their new cinematic universe. To me, that's why it worked better. The tension was building out of the last Avengers  movie and the characters have interacted for several movies worth of time (One must assume interactions happen off screen as well) so they know each other pretty well. Two friends having a disagreement carries so much more weight than two strangers going at it. 

In my critique of  Batman v. Superman,  I noted that the end of the featured fight hinged on the fact both characters' mothers were named Martha. Here, the big fight ended when …

Strange Times

No, this isn't about the election. I'm not ready to unlease that upon the world just yet.  Instead, allow me to share my thoughts on another fantastic entry into Marvel's cinematic universe.  Doctor Strange was the perfect blend of the tone we are used to and the adding of the supernatural world.

Friends on Facebook may have noticed my comment that the first part of  The Imitation Game  was unexpectedly hilarious due in large part to Benedict Cumberbatch's turn as Alan Turing so it comes as no surprise he's awesome as arrogant neurosurgeon (a redundant phrase in my personal experience.)

Doctor Strange, like Ghost Rider, is really not a character that lends itself to having a love interest but since it's an origin story, it worked here with  fellow surgeon Dr. Christine Palmer. Certainly better than in that movie... I've loved Rachel McAdams since The Family Stone  but I'm sure the character'll just go the route of Thor's Jane Foster and just be …

An X-Cellent Post

 X-Men: Apocalypse is the third of the "prequel movies" and today is my second favorite after First Class.  Don't get me wrong: the last one,  Days of Future Past,was far from terrible but you could easily argue it was an excuse to feature Hugh Jackman. The other two do just fine with cameos (which are both awesome and unnecessary but I digress...)

The two biggest complaints I've had about the franchise are the lack of even internal continuity and lack of effort. This movie clearly had the attitude they know continuity is messed up and they don't give a shit. Havok and Cyclops are brothers but inexplicably 20 years apart in age but certainly don't look it. In '83, Prof. Xavier sees CIA Moira McTaggart for the first time since the Cuban Missile Crisis and comments, "You haven't aged a day!" Not even James Bond is a field agent in his late '50's but whatever... (Speaking of Moira,  Rose Byrne is Tasmanian while the character is Scottis…
