holy sick day, batman!

I went away over the weekend and came back feeling under the weather. A sick day was in order. I have been amusing myself with clips of the 1960s Batman. Christian Bale is something, don't get me wrong, but there is seriously something to be said for bright colors and camp--that something is "BAM!"

Other entertaining things on the internet:
  • A Smart Bitches contest to come up with a hotel room based around a couple in the vein of the rooms at Nora Roberts' Inn Boonsboro. Talk about a romance loving decorative arts student's dream! I chose Polly and Tom from Louisa May Alcott's An Old-Fashioned Girl, one of my all-time favourites. There are tons of fabulous suggestions--I'd hate to be the one judging!
  • If you love telegrams as much as I do, check out Telegram Stop. Simply write a message and provide an address, and they send it in the form of a telegram--"STOPs" and all!
  • Yesterday I fell in love with "The Abominable Charles Christopher," a weekly webcomic about a simple-minded, cowardly Yeti which features a fantastic supporting cast of woodland creatures. At turns hilarious and sweet, I read all of it in one go and literally went from laughing out loud to crying in a matter of minutes. Plus? The art is GORGEOUS.
  • Also a webcomic, for fans of classic horror and stories that mess with your head, I recommend Lovecraft is Missing. Fewer woodland creatures than The ACC, but makes up for it with elder gods and the like. Art is equally (if differently) fantastic.
Ps: I got the job I interviewed for this weekend (hence the trip)! More details closer to go time, but suffice it to say that I'm pretty excited for this summer.

Ironically, working at a bookstore, but I've got an internship at the place I want to maybe possibly write my thesis on, too.
