Post Weekend Post and I Bend Avatar Just a Bit

My cold, which isn’t really much of a cold at all, did have the effect of canceling my Saturday. Saturday was International Bear Hibernation Day, in which I slept…a lot. This seems, however, to have taken care of the darned thing. I am barely sniffy at all today, and so exercise will resume tomorrow. Hoo and ha.


Icon fast approaches. I have received all the Paradise Icon readings, and drop boxed them, so we are good to go. Between a novel for a friend and the workshop pieces, I shall be busy being critique girl for a while. I have also my own writing to worry about.


So. I’ve been watching Legend of Korra on the weekends. And I have to tell you…it was a hard sell for me last time. I found the show a lot more shallow than the previous Avatar (yes, okay, it was only 13 episodes, as opposed to a billion, but bad pacing is bad pacing is bad pacing.) That said, this incarnation is plenty more objectionable. Korra is back, and she’s more obnoxious than ever. I don’t know how the writers have done it, but they’ve made one of the most likeable characters on the show, Bolin, kind of…a jerk. So much is wrong this season. If I were Mako, I’d just take Asami and get off the show, maybe head over for Cartoon Network and start my own gig.

They might not get me to finish this.


So, tomorrow, not for the faint of heart, I am going to try my psychologically sound I like me post. Because, as Stuart Smalley would say, “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me!”
