Speaking of "proud parent" moments, Impus Major isn't the world's best student, but he oozes Charisma.

His performance was magnetic. I was supposed to be watching all of you, but I couldn't keep my eyes off of him. He smiled, he danced, he was obviously so "into" the music and the performance that I couldn't help but join in his joy. It was mesmerizing. You should all take clues from him and try to be like him on stage."

So the kids had a massive debate project, with lots of research, a debate team, and a general nightmare for a horrifically-disorganized 9th grader.

And in a, "Sometimes, the world just isn't fair" moment, the best student in Brendan's entire grade was assigned to his team. And she took him under her wing, gave him talking points, reviewed his speeches, set him up, and turned him loose. (Yeah, she's scary smart, and she knew what she had in her arsenal...)

As one girl on the other team put it, "Aw, man! You guys have Impus Major! That's not fair! Everyone LOVES Impus Major!"

So yeah, bad research skills, but prepped by a master and charismatic as heck, Impus buried his poor competition.

Unfortunately, the debate was team-based and apparently some members of his team really got killed, but hearing that not only did he not do poorly, but that he really nailed his part of the debate was a "proud papa" moment...

sounds like your son has a real gift! Hope you and the general(not to mention the young man himself) find a way to not just use it properly but also to make a living.

Woo hoo! Move over, Captain Yesterday! I'm running off with The General!

I think that this is the clifhanger moment when the double life of General NobodysWife is revealed to the surprise of all involved. Were it will lead? We'll learn in the next episode. Or will it warrant a whole story arc?

And today it was more backsword (which finally makes sense, now someone's explained it to me as opposed to reading incomprehensible Elizabethan-ish manuals, and is nasty and ungentlemanly and fun to do), sword & heater shield and Renaissance sword & buckler.

Now I'm home and playing D&D. There are gigantic Il*i*hid/Tyranid things with axes for arms, against which my new-found skills are no help at all.

The General went back to work today, but Pea Bear has the day off.

Of course, the s#~%ty weather is clearing up today.

Easter was a rousing success, If somewhat tiring. damn early bird kids, making me get up afore the sun. We even put winter blankets over the windows to keep the sun out, and they still woke up at 6:30. Good thing I was up by 5:25, a full five minutes before my alarm, which might be one of the reasons my alarm clock has lasted over thirty years. :-)

The General's mom is recovering very nicely from her misprescribed cancer medication infection.

The answer to both of those questions is, of course, "Corporate Douchebag".

I was born in the latter 70s, so my one 80s job was doing odd jobs for this old blind guy down the road.

He was also super racist, and always insisted on calling me "Jerry" (which isn't my name) so I wasn't upset when my mom made me quit. :-)

My first real job was as a dishwasher at a haunted mansion, which I got because my brother that applied wasn't home, and they were like "well, you want a job?"

I'm really beginning to enjoy the quotes I'm getting about Superman vs. Batman from my friends.

The next review I've received: "It was a joyless movie that made no sense."

I should start a Rotten Tomatoes page...

I don't know anyone that's seen it.

It's possible, I need to socialize more. :-)

The reviews I've seen, as well as comments from my friends, seem to be very polarizing. Either it's phenomenal the best they've seen, thank god they changed from the Marvel style, or ugh, this is trash, and I wouldn't watch it again if you paid me.

Last time I saw that kind of reaction was Avatar (I'm in the "ugh, Avatar was crap" camp. I already saw Ferngully when I was a kid, I didn't need to watch it again in HD as an adult.)

I've never seen Avatar, mostly because I couldn't get over the fact it had nothing to do with the last Airbender (haven't seen that one either, in account of bad reviews) I also generally can't stand James Cameron.

Sadly the Avatar the Last Airbender movie sucked.

I liked Avatar... But I will probably wait for the rental to watch Batman vs Superman since it doesn't sound like it's worth the price of a movie ticket.

And now I am broken down on the side of the road... Waiting for the tow truck.
All because I ran an errand for work in a work truck that apparently was poorly maintained.

I would have to go alone, or rope a brother to go along. Or wait until my landscape friends are getting paid again.

All of that is quite a bit of a hassle, and I'm better off going solo.

I find it entertaining that Impus Major described Deadpool as having, "Really juvenile" humor, but I really liked it.

What does it say about you when you're more immature than your 14-year-old son?

Good things, I'm sure...

There's an old Sesame Street story where the monsters go to play baseball but get chased away by dragons yelling at them, anyway they figure out the dragons just want to play baseball too.

Tiny T-Rex and I were discussing that scenario and I asked him if he'd like to play baseball with dragons, and he said "I have to think to myself, no, no I don't think I would. Dragons get hungry and I don't see any hotdog stands"
