Well, first, since employment decided to pass me up this summer, I'm being forced to do yard work and getting yelled at that I'm not doing enough. Fun stuff. I either work until heat exhaustion or in the pouring rain. Summer weather, make up your mind!
(On the other hand, it looks like I got turned down for a techy job purely because I have to go back to school so I couldn't work full time... but I guess I met the other qualifications? Yay, hollow victory.)
Lessee... also sending in paperwork to have a surgery this summer. (Hey, I don't have work or school to get in the way of the 6 week recovery period.) Hopefully my condition is bad enough that I qualify for a study at OHSU, so yay again?
Also put stuff for my passport. Issue is that I was technically born in Canada... and lived there for a full six months before my parents moved back to the states. And despite all the paperwork we had to turn in (originals too... and they stapled the papers, thus putting needless holes in them, lame) it turns out I might have the wrong kind of foreign birth certificates. Like, the lady was like listing off three or four different types I could have, and it's like seriously, I was born, this paperwork has the details, what more do you need. But she kept insisting that I was Canadian... I'm surprised she didn't try to deport me on the spot. (See, basics is US citizenship depends on where you were born, so for me that's Canada. But Canadian citizenship depends on where your father was born, so for me that's the US. So by that logic I'm not accepted anywhere?) I'm sure it can get worked out in the end, but it's just a pain in the neck.
Also, just a quick word on TV shows. (Or not so quick.) Finished up the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. (Or at least as far as new episodes are concerned.) It was a fun show, and now I feel better informed about them after seeing the movie.
Also looked up some older Batman cartoons... but Batman just doesn't have the same feel to it. (Also, I noticed Marvel cartoons tend to use laser weapons everywhere, but Batman had actual guns and bullets and stuff... different violence policies.) And these last two days I watched Iron Man: Armored Adventures. At first I was put off by the cover art; looks kind of lame. But it turns out to be less-cartoon and more 3D generations, so it has a very different look to it, and even though it's kind of annoying at sometimes (why is her paper hovering over the top of a sink?) it's better than I expected. Plus, I love the whole angle of Iron Man as a teenager, and they've had some really good characters. (AKA not introducing a new one each episode and bringing back older ones to actually finish off arcs.) I just got through the first season, and I liked what they did with it. Now I have to find the second season online.
Also, I have a comedy I should be able to post for the Library Summer Olympics contest, but it needs some work finalizing it. (And making sure all the character names are correct.) I've also been making progress on some of my other stories, which is cool, even tho I can't post them on BZP. (Don't bother asking, I know you wouldn't read them anyway.)
