I loved that Disney went the extra mile of making alternate Cap's 'to do' lists for each dub, too. Mexico got lumped with 'Latin America' so it's not as custom, but out of the 5 items in the list that are specific to each territory, for Latin america's list 2 Mexican things are mentioned, our 1st and only Mexican Astronaut, and our Nobel in Literature. And in the Brazil list one (lame) Mexican series that got huge there is also mentioned, so 3 out of 5 isn't so bad.

I knew that it was a favorite of yours, but not the. The songs were great in the sense that they contributed to plot or character development, but also not really my kind of music, so to me, they went on a bit long.

CA:TFA sold me on the MCU, especially in Winter Soldier. I was afraid they'd make Steve a hep modern guy with an iPhone, but the very first scene had him making notes in a pocket-sized spiral notebook of things about Today that were recommended to him. ("Beatles: Music. Thai: Food") With a ball-point pen, which probably amazed him. "Where does the ink go?" "It's not a fountain pen. Just clock the button." click click click "HOLY COW! The modern world is AMAZING!"

And inside, they kept him that same skinny kid from 1942: "A good man."

You know Hedwig is my favorite movie, right? But David thought it was uneven, and I can deal with criticisms of it while having zero objectivity whatsoever.

And re: CA:TFA, Tumblr friends and I have been known to debate who is cuter: Pre-Serum!Steve or Post-Serum!Steve. Welcome to Girlyworld! (I like both for different reasons.)

So sad for you Bill. You were about the best cat dad I'd ever heard of.

As I told David a few days ago, there's nothing like waiting for news that I know is going to be unspeakably awful. And so it is.

"TOAST PARTY" should be the second of Three Secret Passwords.
The first would be "Tod Holton."
Third would be "Let's youse and me pitch some woo!"

LOL. I was such a fan boy back in the day. And still mention "toast" and share the link. Embarrassed to admit I hadn't been to the thoughtviper site in about a year but last night, it showed up in my mind in a dream. It's going to be fun catching up in January with all of your adventures! I did look to see if you had ever gone over to Facebook, which is where I do my mad ramblings, jokes, etc. But I think it is good that thoughtviper.com still is going strong.

My Mormon brother has done that too. I'm not sure how old the picture is, but I think it's from when he was still married, so it's pre-2000's-ish. I can't really blame him for that, though. He's not been happy since--it's just the rest of us who are relieved the bitch is gone. But because of that, I've tried to always make sure my pic is always fairly recent. I can't try to coast on how good I used to look, as I mournfully mused when recently looking at my Tumblr from 2013 and some decent selfies therein.

And exactly how old is YOUR FB pic, Bill? #justaskin ;)

she may be a completely different person by this time

True. But using a 20 year old picture of herself as "today" doesn't convince me of that.

One thing to keep in mind, as horrified as I am by it, is that I am older now than she was then. So it's just possible that she may be a completely different person by this time. Which is not to defend any of her actions or to imply that Bill is not 100% entitled to his feelings, only that the rest of us who may have ever gone through questionable phases of our own probably ought not cast too many stones.
