Under Surveillance

About A Girl

Once upon a time, I was in a video store with my then boyfriend trying to pick out a movie to watch. I picked up John Carpenter's Vampires, and proceeded to tell the boy about the coolest scene in the movie, where a guy uses his hot-from-being-fired gun to cauterize a wound he received. Said boyfriend looks at me, shakes his head, and says, "You're not like other girls, Betty."

Wherein I Reveal New Depths to My Geekiness

Tuesday, April 10, 2007

I'm not a big fan of Smallville. Really, I'm not much of a DC fan, period. I happened to catch an expisode of Smallville on Sunday, though. You know, when there's absolutely nothing on TV. Anyway, this particular episode featured none other than my <>favorite superhero, Aquaman! The writer's apparently think their viewers are stupid, because they were laying it on pretty thick. He can swim faster than Superman, hears ultrasonic noises that others can't, and even gets made fun of by Lois Lane for his orange and green wardrobe. I had to laugh because it wasn't until after all these references that Jay looked at me and said, "Y'know, I think that's Aquaman."

The cheesiest joke of the entire episode came towards the end:

Aquaman: "We make a pretty good team. We could start the Junior Lifeguards of America or something like that."
Superman: "I don't think I'm ready for the JLA just yet."

I don't know how the actors kept a straight face for that one.
