My husband started a new job recently, and they are working him like crazy. He put in 80 hours last week, and will finish this week out with 84, having worked 14 days straight. I am so thankful he works so hard. But I want my husband back!
He did get out a little early this week so we could watch a press screening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. My thoughts on that will be up next week).
Tom used to own a comic book shop, and he is loving the new Marvel movie line and how they all tie together. I gets lots of little side tidbits about character’s pasts and alternate universes and parallel story lines. My favorites are the ones who aren’t really superheroes/mutants/gods at all, but normal humans who are just really good at what they do. Black Widow, I’m looking at you. (OK let’s be honest. My MOST favorite is Loki, of course.)

I became what I am today at the age of twelve, on a frigid overcast day in the
winter of 1975. I remember the precise moment, crouching behind a crumbling mud
wall, peeking into the alley near the frozen creek. That was a long time ago,
but it’s wrong what they say about the past, I’ve learned, about how you can
bury it. Because the past claws its way out. Looking back now, I realize I have
been peeking into that deserted alley for the last twenty-six years.
Have a lovely weekend!
