After the years of waiting for a Wonder Woman, well, anything, there is finally going to be a TV show. And even though the script I read was not great and even though the costume is not perfect (I said today that the official cheer of a Wonder Woman fan is “Yay it doesn’t suck as much!”), I have to admit when I saw this picture, where her feet seem to be lifting off the ground, I got excited.
She has the face of a hungry falcon.
Reblogging solely for the “hawkward” photo because this is what an Awklarr would look like!
“The romances in the game are not for “the straight male gamer”. They’re for everyone. We have a lot of fans, many of whom are neither straight nor male, and they deserve no less attention.” — David Gaider, BioWare lead writer.
Follow the link to read the rest. I kind of love this a lot. Props to Gaider for tearing this guy apart in such a firm — yet eloquent and polite — manner, and directly addressing heterosexual male privelige.
I was browsing http://www.bifuteki.com and came across this neat little website that allows you to turn any webpage into a fun game of Katamari Damacy! I decided to do it to my twitter home page for shits and giggles.
I think that it is pretty neat that I’ve gotten some new followers within the past day. (Thanks SRK!) Thanks for following and I hope that when I do post more geeky baked goods or anything other nerd related, you’ll enjoy it.
So I just had a phone call with a friend of mine who’s living in Japan. She’s living in Sendai and as you may know that’s the city that got hot the worst. Well, she’s okay and her family too so far, but she was close to tears when she called me and after she told me what happened… I’m crying too.
She said that she’s been in the middle of the street after the earthquake and when the tsunami came, together with her mother and her little brother (2 years old). The water was too fast so they had to hide in the shelter of a house but they knew that the water would rise more and more and that they had to get away from there or else they would drown. They kept yelling and somehow a man saw them from a balcony of the house they were hiding behind. Well, that man jumped down from the balcony and into the water and helped my friend and her mother and brother to get up into the house and the safety even though the water was getting stronger and stronger and making it even more impossible to stand. My friend’s mother insisted on her kids going first and then the man helped her up the balcony too.
She just turned around and he grabbed her hand to get out of the water too when a car (one of hundreds) was being washed down the street and in his direction. My friend’s mother and the other people were yelling… and he suddenly let go of her hand so that she wouldn’t get pulled into the water when the car hit and drowned him.
My friend and her family survived… thanks to a stranger who gave his life to rescue them. He could’ve stayed in the save building but instead he helped them. I was so touched when she told me her story.
I don’t know the name of this man, his story, who he was… but I want to give him a special moment in my prayers today and in the future.
He’s a true hero.
My eyes are tearing up..
In the midst of all the chaos, there’s still hope.
So being the smart girl that I am, I just look at the calendar, see the month, and assume that it will be somewhat warm outside in early March. Of course doing so, I decide I want to break out spring outfits and footwear so I choose to wear these shoes:
Then of course it snows all day and takes me 2 hours to get home. However I’m proud of myself for my pro walking skills because I managed to get home with my feet still dry! Not to mention the random compliments from people at work and a lady at the bus stop.
