OK, got a few things to write about, figured I may as well this and that them!
Who Wants to be a Superhero?
We're two episodes into this season of WWTBAS, and frankly, I'm amazed that the group Stan chose was the best ten of the applicants. I mean, really, Stan? To be honest, not one of them is standing out in my mind as the one or two that I hope will win it.
You may recall last summer, I was initially rooting for Major Victory before switching allegiance to Feedback (who ended up winning). This time around, there's a few that I'm hoping will get kicked out soon (Mr. Mitzvah is one - although I suspect he's the "mole" that was implied in the teaser for next week's episode; Hygena [or however you spell her name] is another). I suppose that if I had to pick one at this point, I'd go with the cop, although I forget his character's name right now. He does seem to have the best grasp at this point as to what Stan's looking for.
I did enjoy the villainess, Beesting, who was introduced in this second episode. She'll be teaming up with another villain, whose name is unknown (but appears to be one of those effeminate villain types that seem to pop up in Anime so often... I was kind of hoping for the return of the Dark Enforcer from last year, though).
The challenges have been interesting... Jessi was amazed that the contestants were actually exposed to real bees! Fortunately, nobody seemed to be allergic to bee stings.
My Civic Duty
So, this coming week, I'm in the pool for jury duty, much to my boss' dismay. Monday morning I need to report at 8 a.m. with the others in the three groups selected for then. One thing that concerns me is that when I got the notice for this, there was a form to fill out and mail within five days which, I've got to be honest, I never got mailed out, and at this point, I figure I should just bring it in with me because it wouldn't reach there before noon Monday at the earliest. Also, I was supposed to fill it out in black ink, but I used blue (the line about black ink was in the tiniest print on the form). I do hope there'll be no penalty, legal or otherwise, for failing to return that in time... but I doubt any of the info will have an effect on whether or not I'm called to duty.
Coming Up in the Random Acts!
I've been getting some comics advertisements scanned in, and hopefully I'll get them uploaded once I have enough to last for a while once I start posting them. But I'm considering stockpiling until I'm running out of classic collectibles posts!
I may also end up missing a day here and there... unfortunately, I probably won't know ahead of time if I'll have to skip a day of blogging, because it'll be kind of a last-minute thing. I'll do my best to blog every day, though!
